Draft deletion[edit]

What means should one use to get a draft deleted?★Trekker (talk) 18:02, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

*Treker it all depends on the specific draft, but I am assuming you are talking about Draft:Rocket (group). The only speedy deletion criteria that apply in the Draft namespace are the G (general) criteria. Pages in the Draft namespace should only be deleted if there is no way they could be fixed. If you feel it needs to be deleted you can always list it at WP:MFD but normally lack of notability is not a reason to delete a Draft at MFD. ~ GB fan 18:58, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
I tried to have it deleted due to concerns brought up here.★Trekker (talk) 19:15, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Mackie's[edit]

We edit-conflicted declining the speedy tag. The article looks like a copyvio of an old version of the corporate website; so I've reduced it to a stub and added a couple of independent sources. I think the article was still at risk of being deleted per WP:G11 otherwise. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:59, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

I was in the process of going back through the history to find where all the text came from and to see if there was less promotional version to revert to when you did it. The text was probably copied from an old version of the company website. My plan was to get the immediate deletion tag taken off and then try to figure out what happened to the article, you just beat me to that part. ~ GB fan 17:07, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
This is the third ice-cream manufacturer article I've had to rewrite to avoid deletion (the others being Nobó and Kelly's of Cornwall). I'm starting to spot a trend. The article was originally created by a now-blocked sock (so possibly a paid editing piece), and before the copy / paste from the corporate website was in an even worse shape than the three-line stub there is now.

Speedy deletion of List of Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania statewide and federal candidates[edit]

Hi GB fan, I understand the result of the AFD for this article was merge. However, the admin that closed it specifically stated that there was no consensus on redirect and article could be deleted. Since I think the article title is an unlikely search term (mostly because of its length), I think it would make more sense not to redirect. Please reconsider. Thanks.--Rusf10 (talk) 20:10, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Content has been merged from List of Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania statewide and federal candidates to Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania. To maintain attribution of the content we need to leave the history in place. ~ GB fan 20:16, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
