Speedy deletion nomination of Mambele (disambiguation)[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 Mambele (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
  • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
  • is an orphaned redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

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.

Re-run of Helpful Pixie Bot for unreferenced articles dating[edit]

Hi Rich! I hope you're doing well. I am making my way through the unreferenced articles and noticed that in the 19,000+ articles tagged as December 2009, a good number were not actually created in December 2009. We are all pleased to have gotten through December 2006 so we can say the backlog is (only) 15 years old, but one of the December 2009 articles, as an example, dates back to January 2005. I don't know much about how the bot works but I was wondering if it would be possible to run it again to break down this super-category into more manageable chunks, even if it means re-opening some finished categories. Is this something you would be interested in doing, or think is feasible? I'm trying to get some momentum for WP:URA and could see this as a proverbial kick in the pants to shake things up. Thanks! Kazamzam (talk) 13:52, 14 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, it would need a re-write, but it would be possible. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 08:49, 15 June 2022 (UTC).

Hi User:Liz. I've asked you before not to leave me these messages in respect of albums categories. However in this case, the question of what happened to the Ink Spots album articles should be raised. As a pioneering and very important American musical group, quite apart from breaking ground in the industry for African Americans, their work is highly notable, and I am surprised that their albums articles have been deleted. Or more accurately I am not surprised, we seem to prefer deleting articles to finding sources to build them out. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 08:11, 21 June 2022 (UTC).

Shhhnotsoloud, since this is now deleted I can't check the history, but I imagine it disambiguated between Quiche Lorraine and Quiche Lorraine (song). All the best: Rich Farmbrough 08:05, 21 June 2022 (UTC).
Reply[reply]
It was a redirect to Quiche Lorraine, which was a dab with three entries but has since been converted into an article. This deletion is just housekeeping. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 08:35, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. The correct housekeeping would have been to move the disambiguation page located at the primary title to Quiche Lorraine (disambiguation), before splitting the quiche article. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 08:47, 21 June 2022 (UTC).
Reply[reply]
Meh, with only three titles to distinguish and a clear primary topic, hatnotes work fine now that the main title is an article. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 08:56, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposed deletion of Yard craft[edit]

Notice

The article Yard craft has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No sources are cited within this article, and this has been tagged since March 2021. It seems that this page has been abandoned. However, if someone finds sources, then please remove this PROD and add them to the article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

TNstingray (talk) 12:45, 18 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's often a good idea to talk to the creator of the redirect before listing it. The (disambiguation) qualifier is used in cases where the primary meaning of the term is not clear-cut. In other cases a redirect from the name with the qualifier is provided. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 12:42, 20 September 2022 (UTC).
