Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Barker Wentworth[edit]

Only 2 people suggested redirect, how about the consensus for delete, especially after relisting. LibStar (talk) 13:19, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

In general, unless there's some good argument why the history should be hidden, and there's a reasonable redirect target, it makes sense to redirect. Wikipedia:Redirects are cheap -- RoySmith (talk) 13:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Deletion review[edit]

Hello, RoySmith,
I noticed you were active at WP:DRV and so I have a question for you. I was trying to educate myself about aspects of the deletion process I was unfamiliar with and came across Category:Candidates for undeletion. It contains all of these similar pages (like User:Rich Farmbrough/The Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation (Technology) (1967)) which were tagged at least a year ago. Either the page was not undeleted or it was undeleted and the tag was not removed, I can't tell. I'm hoping you can shed some light on this and maybe we can get the category cleared out a bit. Thanks. Liz Read! Talk! 14:29, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Hmmm. To be honest, I didn't even know that category existed until just now. It looks like template:tempundelete adds pages to the category automatically. I have no idea why Rich Farmbrough has all those pages; pinging him on that. Perhaps they can be deleted? -- RoySmith (talk) 14:40, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
These templates should have been removed when the pages where userfied. I will take care of it. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 14:58, 1 July 2015 (UTC).

Rathfelder (talk · contribs) left you a comment at Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2015 June 28#Medworxx asking you to restore the contents to draft space. I am letting you know here in case you didn't see Rathfelder's message. Cunard (talk) 21:56, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks -- RoySmith (talk) 13:16, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very muchRathfelder (talk) 16:17, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

This has been improved a bit by both me and others. The only things which are referenced by press releases are very factual. The most promotional stuff is from Vancouver Coastal Health, and, as far as I can see, this is entirely independent. It is hard to find coverage which is not just a rehearsal of the company's press releases, but as far as i can see the claims they make seem justified. Could you cast a further critical eye over it please?Rathfelder (talk) 17:22, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Merge and delete[edit]

Re: [1], post-merge redirects are usually required to preserve attribution. – czar 15:16, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks. -- RoySmith (talk) 15:22, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
