  • I volunteer to next reference Thomas T. Matteson, Leo A. Berg, and Guðmundur Gunnarsson.--Milowent (talk) 19:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, restored all three. ϢereSpielChequers 00:33, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
      • When I went to source them, I was pleased to find that Bigtimepeace has already sourced all three!--Milowent (talk) 15:23, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
      • Lets restore all of them to the incubator. Ikip 03:07, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
        • I don't think that we can do that unless either the RFC concludes with that as part of its solution, or you find an admin willing to wp:wheelwar. The current process is a compromise that allows us to go ahead and rescue these articles. ϢereSpielChequers 15:59, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I volunteer to reference Nikollë Nikprelaj, Buddy England and Brandon Reilly. J04n(talk page) 14:33, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, restored all three. ϢereSpielChequers 15:59, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
      • Question: Should we be restoring these before they are sourced or userfying them first? I've been receiving userfied versions, sourcing them, THEN returning them to article space. It's going to be ~12 hours before I get these done and I don't want any controversy about them hanging around in article space without sources. J04n(talk page) 16:05, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
        • A. Within 24 hours should be uncontentious. - For admins its different as they can restore when they are ready to source things. I'm not a big fan of userfying anything other than testpages and autobiographies as I think that article editing should be a collaborative mainspace venture. ϢereSpielChequers 16:24, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I volunteer to next reference Cathy Greene, John Bucklaschuk, and Elly Dekker.--Milowent (talk) 16:51, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, restored all three. ϢereSpielChequers 00:01, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I volunteer to next reference Michel Dalberto. J04n(talk page) 01:01, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, restored ϢereSpielChequers 21:42, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I'll do Slobodan Lalović. Restorations have slowed as the most notable folks have been revived at this point.--Milowent (talk) 15:43, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, restored. Do you think the others are not notable or just not in topics that interest you? ϢereSpielChequers 17:58, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
      • To answer your question to Milowent from my perspective: a little of both. I can see cached versions and categories for the articles deleted by Scott MacDonald here but for the other deleted articles I'm relying on this which only gives article names and isn't helpful in determining rescuable articles. So of the MacDonald articles, my answer is is yes to both, for the others, I wish I could have more information. J04n(talk page) 18:53, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
      • I haven't looked at every deleted article so I can't say they all aren't notable, its just my sense from looking at some of them. I am going off this list User:Apoc2400/Deletion list, where some have added comments regarding a few that may not be worth restoring - it would be useful to get an opinion there on the remaining unrestored ones.--Milowent (talk) 19:19, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
        • I would think a good test is to use What links here and see what they were linked to... I'm pretty sure that the deleting admins didn't delink the articles, and I'm not as fussed at losing articles that have been orphans for years. I'd offer to look through a bunch and see which I think are more notable than others, but I suspect it would be difficult to remove my prejudices from the process. ϢereSpielChequers 10:59, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Next up, I would request Lisa Gastineau. The type of article no self-respecting editor would like to source, yet it was a fairly popular article (viewed 3955 times in December 2009) which could be be easily sourced and expanded.--Milowent (talk) 20:55, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, restored. There were a whole load of vandalisms there, I think I left them all out of the restore but that could become a bit of a vandal target. ϢereSpielChequers 00:49, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
      • Thanks, I see that JBSupreme pared it down to almost nothing in September 2008. I'll source what can be sourced and watch it, and request semi-protection if it reoccurs.--Milowent (talk) 06:35, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
        • On further reflection I've semi Protected it. ϢereSpielChequers 10:52, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I'll take Yaya Dillo Djérou. I'll use [1] , [2].--Elvey (talk) 22:44, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, restored, good choice - we have a real shortage of African articles. ϢereSpielChequers 00:49, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I'll take Adnan Coker, Turkish artist with lots of foreign language articles out there, and a few worthwhile English ones, a "master of contemporary Turkish painting".--Milowent (talk) 20:47, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Can sombody please restore Marcelo Lucero? --KF5LLG (talk) 23:59, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey all, can you please update WP:ARS/BLP with the articles you saved, a former Arbitration member, Casliber, ask me to complete this list. He will probably use it to argue that we need to be careful. Thanks. Ikip 01:46, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
