18:56:38, 4 November 2016 review of submission by TFIPR[edit]

Hello Missionedit,

I appreciate you reviewing my article. I have done my best to reformat the article based on your revisions as well as other editors on Wiki. Would you be able to take a glance at it before I resubmit? I hope to have this article accepted the second time around. Thanks again!

New Page Review - newsletter No.3[edit]

Hello Missionedit,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Voting for coordinators has now begun HERE and will continue through/to 23:59 UTC Monday 06 March. Please be sure to vote. Any registered, confirmed editor can vote. Nominations are now closed.

Still a MASSIVE backlog

We now have 365 New Page Reviewers but despite numerous appeals for help, the backlog has NOT been significantly reduced.
If you asked for the New Page Reviewer right, please consider investing a bit of time - every little helps preventing spam and trash entering the mainspace and Google when the 'NO_INDEX' tags expire.

Discuss this newsletter here. If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 15:35, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Village Reconstruction Organization[edit]

I was given no time to respond to your tag. It is a straight translation from the article in German and was deleted within 6 minutes of when I created it, without giving me time to respond to the notice, which I just saw now about twelve hours after I created the article. Is this the way speedy deletion should work in articles which pose no danger from copyright infringement or other critical matters?Jzsj (talk) 12:08, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

@Jzsj: Hello, Jzsj. The article was deleted because it had no sources other than that provided by the organization itself, and was written in a promotional tone. This falls under the speedy deletion criteria G11. Even though an article exists in the German Wikipedia, this does not mean it meets Wikipedia's general standards.
If you want the article restored and moved to draft space so you can work on it, you should ask admin User:Vanamonde93, who deleted the article. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 19:03, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, shall do. Why such an urgent deletion of an article that had been on a foreign Wiki for 5 years? I would like to avoid this in the future, and get a shot at creating this article with myself. @Vanamonde93: Jzsj (talk) 21:21, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
@Jzsj: Missionedit is quite correct: the article might exist on the German Wikipedia, but if it is in mainspace here, it needs to meet the standards for mainspace here, and this article, I'm afraid this article did not. To be clear, do you want a copy in your userspace? Vanamonde (talk) 03:19, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
I have my own version ready now, quite apart from the copy I translated. Please enable the recreation of Village Reconstruction Organization. Thank you. @Vanamonde93: Jzsj (talk) 03:25, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
@Jzsj: The creation of the article was never disabled: the page was deleted, but it can be recreated the same way it was initially created. However, might I suggest you use the WP:AFC process, to make sure it received scrutiny before hitting mainspace? I cannot compel you: just a suggestion.
