Proposed deletion of Rifts Collectible Card Game[edit]

Hello, Mindmatrix. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Rifts Collectible Card Game, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

Deletion discussion about Rifts Collectible Card Game[edit]

Hello, Mindmatrix,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Rifts Collectible Card Game should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rifts Collectible Card Game .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

DYK for Metropolitan Theatre (Winnipeg)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 8 January 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Metropolitan Theatre (Winnipeg), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the initial plan for the renovation of the Metropolitan Theatre in Winnipeg was for a rock and roll museum? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Metropolitan Theatre (Winnipeg). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Metropolitan Theatre (Winnipeg)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Since you had some involvement with the "Cabal of Naples" redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so.  — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 22:08, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Rifts Collectible Card Game[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Rifts Collectible Card Game, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion discussion, such as at Articles for deletion. When a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after a discussion, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

If you think the discussion was closed improperly, you take it to WP:DRV. Restoring an article deleted through process immediately like you did is nothing but disruptive. As the closer suggested, you've been quite disruptive enough already. Continuing would not be suggested. John from Idegon (talk) 23:30, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
I didn't restore a deleted article, I restored a redirect that existed well before the article that replaced it; all subsequent edits (ie - the article) remain deleted. Check the deleted contributions history - the redirect was created four years before the deleted article replaced it, and I restored only one of 26 edits. The redirect was not mentioned in the discussion, and the closing admin didn't bother reviewing the article's history before closing the AfD.
With respect to the claim "As the closer suggested, you've been quite disruptive enough already", please point me to the relevant discussion, as I cannot find it linked in your comments above or from any entries listed at Special:WhatLinksHere/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Rifts_Collectible_Card_Game, on your talk page, or on User talk:Spartaz, and I'd like to respond to such claims against me. (And WTF do you mean by "Continuing would not be suggested" - don't be so condescending; what am I "continuing"? I restored one of 26 edits and stopped there.)
