Notice Coming here to ask why I deleted your article? Read this page first...

If that doesn't help, read these FAQs.

1. Why did you delete my page when I hadn't finished writing it?

Answer: Don't create new articles unless you are sure they meet wikipedia's criteria, particularly notability and verifiability. If you want to practice, there is the sandbox facility and Wikipedia:Articles for creation where you can get a second opinion from a more experienced contributor. And if you really can't help yourself, use {{underconstruction}} so other people will know you are still working on it.

2. Why did you delete my page for advertising? I wasn't trying to advertise!

Answer: Read Wikipedia:NPOV for guidance on how to word an article so that it doesn't sound like an advertisement.

3. Why did you delete my page for advertising? It was about a non-profit organisation!

Answer: Non-profit organisations advertise all the time - it's still promotion and the rule applies to them just as it does to commercial bodies. See no 2 above.

4. Why did you delete my article without warning?

Answer: Because you are not entitled to a warning if you don't follow the guidelines. See no 1 above.

5. Why didn't you do a google search and find references for my article and put them in for me instead of just deleting it?

Answer: Because I don't have time to do the boring bits for you. I have enough boring bits of my own to work on, thank you.

6. You have a very interesting view of neutrality. The authors you give credence to have a definite point of view and you discount those that disagree.

And please SIGN YOUR POSTS, otherwise I don't know who is asking me the question!


Please don't waste your time trying to steal my wikipedia ID. Mr in Sydney, Australia, is just one of many who have tried and failed to do this because it didn't occur to them that the new password would be sent to my e-mail address, not theirs. Mr in London is another.

Deleted Page[edit]

Hi Deb,

I believe that the CoderDojo movement is of global significance and request that the page be unlocked so that people can recreate it. As a founder of the movement, which is a charity, I promise I will not edit the page or cause others to put content I control on there as I do understand the wikipedia rules and respect them deeply. I can say that thousands and thousands of people world wide are or have been involved and even a short search in Google will return you numerous independent media articles about CoderDojo. Your assistance in this matter would be appreciated I am sure that there will be enough people willing to contribute once the lock down is removed. My two sons who attend CoderDojo are also keen to contribute without my influence - Bill Liao Co-Founder CoderDojo.

I have no recollection of this article or of deleting or protecting it. However, at the moment it's reading like a blatant advert and needs to be cleaned up PDQ if you don't want it deleted (again?). Deb (talk) 08:30, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Deb, Thank you for replying about the CoderDojo page, I can see you have to deal with a lot of issues and don't have much time. I have removed the Philosophy section from the page as this seems to be the most noticeable non-neutral content. I hope this change is sufficient from your perspective as a moderator, if not I hope you can find the time to post a short note here. The CoderDojo movement has parallels with Football clubs, and each of the some 600 'Dojos' can be very proud of their own brand and at times may be over-zealous in their use of non-neutral language, it may be necessary for us to deal with the many different clubs in a similar fashion to List of association football clubs. - Lindsay MacVean (sometime CoderDojo volunteer) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lindsaymacvean (talkcontribs) 05:21, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Deb, — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:08, 11 July 2015 (UTC) You deleted my recent changes to the Mobify Wikipedia page. I would like to revise the article to ensure it follows the guidelines that you directed me to. What is the best way to go about this?

Deltapath speedy deletion and related Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

Deltapath was recently recreated by another user. currently, a Sockpuppet investigation is open see here. if you are interested please check them. thank you :) Nicky mathew (talk) 11:15, 18 June 2015 (UTC)


It was previously deleted per afd-the creator put the article back up in March right after it was AFD-oddly it never appeared on the talk page that it was before and oddly not caught till now.

Deleted page - French Operations Research & Decision Support Society[edit]

I find it really rude that you deleted the French Operations Research society without any prior warning. The society is one of the largest Operations Research (OR) societies in Europe, and OR is a well established and recognized academic field. There have been some discussions going on about similar pages for other countries, that ended up being kept. So I don't understand the hurry in deleting this one. Please clarify (and read first). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bfortz (talkcontribs) 20:00, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

How dumb are you guys when we post sum thing unless the sheep people believe it you delet it, HYETECH superchargers is a real company I was doing research on. Check then out or call them so don't delete posters when thry are real, HYETECH is a leading manufacturer and the products they supply have never been done before by any other company so how can we write this so it's won't be deleted if it's the truth.

Deleted page - Lexinnova Technologies[edit]

Hi, you just deleted the page Lexinnova Technologies. I do not believe any of the content on the page was promotional. Also I believe it met the notability criteria. LexInnova and its insights have been published in several leading journals and several other notable sources.

Please let me know if there are any modifications that can be made to make sure that it meets all the criteria. Please not that several of our competitors are already listed on wikipedia with a similar number of sources.

I can provide additional sources if needed.

Request your cooperation in the matter. Thank you. Nasir at Lexinnova (talk) 14:08, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Can you add Andy Griffith to the Death Section for July 3? I can't remember how to do it, and would probably screw it up

Hi Deb,

You deleted my page ==LED wallpaper== three days ago. I wish to rework my article because it was not intended to be advertising. Please let me know what to do. Thank you.Viarasp (talk) 11:27, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Deleted Pages[edit]

Hi Deb, You deleted my page ZTEsoft yesterday. I don't intend to make this page promotional.I can revise it to meet the criteria. What should I do? Thanks.

Hi. I tried to revise the Page-ZTEsoft just now, and I noticed there was an warning "this page is under protection". I just want to make sure that this page will not be blocked if I revise it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cher1991 (talkcontribs) 13:38, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

I want to create ZTEsoft page for people who need to know the basic information about it. I will modify the previous one and make sure that it meets all the criteria. Can you please unlock the page as it is really important for me. ThanksCher1991 (talk) 14:39, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Unsigned post[edit]

Hi Deb, You deleted a page I was editing under the pretense that it was an advertisement, but from my perspective it's simply a means of informing the public about what the program is in action to do (help educate people who arent getting a full masters degree) and how this program affects the ever-changing business market. If that is an advertisement then wouldn't havard's page be an advertisement? As well as any band/musician page? They both tell the history of their topics, as I was doing on mine, as well as the affects they have on the ever-changing cultures they are associated with. I mentioned where it was started because that's the history of the program. I mentioned how the certificates are becoming more accepted so people can see how the educational system and business executive growth models are both changing and how this kind of program may become more and more prevalent, giving way to more optional learning that gives similar lessons to graduate degrees, but not be the entire program a master's or doctorate takes. If talking about that program is an advertisement, any business described on wiki would also fall under that same category, would it not? I'm not at all angry, or trying to be rude. I just have to be very honest about the way I perceive the post I was working hard on and how your labelling it as an advertisement should not be a double standard. If that program cannot get its information posted on wikipedia because it's a program that's specific to a school, or a certain demographic, none of the businesses, musicians, non-profits, etc... should have that right then. It just feels like a double standard and with all due respect, I disagree with it being deleted for the reason that it was. Id appreciate if you would respond with rebuttals to my points here, as I believe them to be legitimate points. If you disagree, i respect that and look forward to learning why, but wikipedia is an information hub that covers many specific topics, businesses included. The standard should be the same for all of those topics, no? Thank you for your time. Sorry for rambling. I do get passionate when I feel smaller parties are being censored for an unjust reason, but this is in no way personal and I mean you no disrespect as a person, so please take this as a friendly, spirited debate post.

Hi Dev,

I would like to improve my page based on your comments. You are requested to again put my page back so that i can work on the same.

Thanks, — Preceding unsigned comment added by President DEF (talkcontribs) 17:58, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

I don't see anything on Talk:July 4 about a large-scale deletion of entries. Was that intentional, or are you talking about a different talk page? OhNoitsJamie Talk 22:40, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Deleted Pages[edit]

Hi Deb, You deleted my page Nutty - A Network Utility yesterday. I don't intend to make this page promotional.I believe it is giving information about the existence of an application that many users of the Linux platform need. I read through the 'Neutral Points of View' and believe I have not mentioned anything which goes against the spirit of neutrality. It will be much appreciated if you can return the page and mention which part of the same went against the promotional/neutrality nature so that I can rectify the same. Thanks.

Sorry, no. It's very clear that you have a conflict of interest here.Deb (talk) 17:32, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


Hello Deb,

Could you please assess the above editor? I came across them few weeks ago and they seemed a brilliant contents creator. The user had created 68 articles within a space of two months of editing experience and I'm sure they will definitely create hundreds of Nigeria-related articles on notable topics. I thought of nominating them for Autopatrol to reduce the stress of patrolling their pages but I'm concern about their experience because they joined Wikipedia 2 month ago. What is your opinion on this? Thanks! Wikigyt@lk to M£ 09:48, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
