User talk:Place holder

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Place holder is an account created to be used when you intend to replace the user name with an actual user later. It also serves in ranked lists of Wikipedians to hold the place of those who do not wish to be listed by name, without invalidating the rankings.

User:Example is a similar account created to be used in examples where you don't want to name a particular user.

Speedy deletion nomination of User:Place holder[edit]

A tag has been placed on User:Place holder requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section U5 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to consist of writings, information, discussions, and/or activities not closely related to Wikipedia's goals. Please note that Wikipedia is not a free Web hosting service. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages 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 removed 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.

I see that someone else has contested the speedy deletion and removed the tag, but I would have if they hadn't, and the deletion would have been rejected by the responding admin if it had stayed. This page is about as far from meeting section U5 of the criteria for speedy deletion as is possible. Perhaps Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi / Muffled got confused by the now-blocked editor who tried using this page as a webhost and was quickly reverted? --Guy Macon (talk) 17:32, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
