Centralized discussion
Proposals: policy other Discussions Ideas

Note: inactive discussions, closed or not, should be archived.

Miscellany for deletion (MfD) is a place where Wikipedians decide what should be done with problematic pages in the namespaces which aren't covered by other specialized deletion discussion areas. Items sent here are usually discussed for seven days; then they are either deleted by an administrator or kept, based on community consensus as evident from the discussion, consistent with policy, and with careful judgment of the rough consensus if required.

Information on the process[edit]

What may be nominated for deletion here:

  • Pages in these namespaces: Book:, Draft:, Help:, Portal:, MediaWiki:, Wikipedia: (including WikiProjects), User:, TimedText:, Module:, Topic:, Gadget:, Gadget definition:, and the various Talk: namespaces
  • Userboxes (regardless of namespace)
  • Any other page, that is not in article space, where there is dispute as to the correct XfD venue.

Requests to undelete pages deleted after discussion here, and debate whether discussions here have been properly closed, both take place at Wikipedia:Deletion review, in accordance with Wikipedia's undeletion policy.

Before nominating a page for deletion[edit]

Before nominating a page for deletion, please consider these guidelines:

Deleting pages in your own userspace
  • If you want to have your own personal userpage deleted, there is no need to list it here; simply tag it with {{db-userreq}}. If you wish your user talk page (or user talk page archives) to be deleted, this is the correct location to request that.
Deleting pages in other people's userspace
  • Consider explaining your concerns on the user's talk page with a personal note or by adding {{subst:Uw-userpage}} ~~~~  to their talk page. This step assumes good faith and civility; often the user is simply unaware of the guidelines, and the page can either be fixed or speedily deleted using {{db-userreq}}.
  • Take care not to bite newcomers - sometimes using the {{subst:welcome}} or {{subst:welcomeg}} template and a pointer to WP:UP would be best first.
  • Problematic userspace material is often addressed by the User pages guidelines including in some cases removal by any user or tagging to clarify the content or to prevent external search engine indexing. (Examples include copies of old, deleted, or disputed material, problematic drafts, promotional material, offensive material, inappropriate links, 'spoofing' of the MediaWiki interface, disruptive HTML, invitations or advocacy of disruption, certain kinds of images and image galleries, etc) If your concern relates to these areas consider these approaches as well, or instead of, deletion.
  • User pages about Wikipedia-related matters by established users usually do not qualify for deletion.
  • Articles that were recently deleted at AfD and then moved to userspace are generally not deleted unless they have lingered in userspace for an extended period of time without improvement to address the concerns that resulted in their deletion at AfD, or their content otherwise violates a global content policy such as our policies on Biographies of living persons that applies to any namespace.
  • Note that we do not delete user subpages merely to "clean up" userspace. Please only nominate pages that are problematic under our guidelines.
Policies, guidelines and process pages
  • Established pages and their sub-pages should not be nominated, as such nominations will probably be considered disruptive, and the ensuing discussions closed early. This is not a forum for modifying or revoking policy. Instead consider tagging the policy as {{historical}} or redirecting it somewhere.
  • Proposals still under discussion generally should not be nominated. If you oppose a proposal, discuss it on the policy page's discussion page. Consider being bold and improving the proposal. Modify the proposal so that it gains consensus. Also note that even if a policy fails to gain consensus, it is often useful to retain it as a historical record, for the benefit of future editors.
WikiProjects and their subpages
  • It is generally preferable that inactive WikiProjects not be deleted, but instead be marked as {{WikiProject status|inactive}}, redirected to a relevant WikiProject, or changed to a task force of a parent WikiProject, unless the WikiProject was incompletely created or is entirely undesirable.
  • WikiProjects that were never very active and which do not have substantial historical discussions (meaning multiple discussions over an extended period of time) on the project talk page should not be tagged as {{historical}}; reserve this tag for historically active projects that have, over time, been replaced by other processes or that contain substantial discussion (as defined above) of the organization of a significant area of Wikipedia. Before deletion of an inactive project with a founder or other formerly active members who are active elsewhere on Wikipedia, consider userfication.
  • Notify the main WikiProject talk page when nominating any WikiProject subpage, in addition to standard notification of the page creator.
Alternatives to deletion
  • Normal editing that doesn't require the use of any administrator tools, such as merging the page into another page or renaming it, can often resolve problems.
  • Pages in the wrong namespace (e.g. an article in Wikipedia namespace), can simply be moved and then tag the redirect for speedy deletion using {{db-g6|rationale= it's a redirect left after a cross-namespace move}}. Notify the author of the original article of the cross-namespace move.

Please familiarize yourself with the following policies[edit]

How to list pages for deletion[edit]

Please check the aforementioned list of deletion discussion areas to check that you are in the right area. Then follow these instructions:

  • Comment - You are the creator of the draft. Are you trying to correct the spelling error in the title? If so, you simply need to move it to the correct spelling. If you want this draft deleted because you've decided it isn't useful anymore, you can add {{db-author}} to the draft. As you are the sole editor of the draft, you can ask for its speedy deletion. - Whpq (talk) 20:12, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Weak Delete - The draft says that this building was the home of famous people, such as Michael Connelly. But I believe that alone doesn't pass WP:GNG. I can confirm that this is referenced in the cited reference at p.507 but I don't have access to it. I might change my mind depending on the cited reference or anything else that is found. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:24, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

This sandbox draft was tendentiously resubmitted after being declined as not being clear whether it was a test edit, a very incomplete draft, or something else. The attempted title WP:UCLA EXERCISE STUDY is on the title blacklist. If the author can rework this draft into something encyclopedic within seven days, then it can be reviewed.

2007 WP:UP#COPIES that is now at List of Doctor Who universe creatures and aliens and its various subpages. Ricky81682 (talk) 09:58, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

You have to look at the separate articles in detail. The first listing, for Abzorbaloff, is at List_of_Doctor_Who_universe_creatures_and_aliens_(0–9,_A–G)#A, Auton is at Autons now, the Beast is at List_of_Doctor_Who_villains#Beast, and so on. None of that page is sourced. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 22:04, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Four year old draft on a fourth tier football team. Too low a level to qualify under WP:FOOTBALL. Ricky81682 (talk) 22:03, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Jordan Lawson[edit]

Draft:Jordan Lawson (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Article has been repeatedly submitted to AfC in spite of not improving. The most recent attempts were 1) they created a press release on Newswire and tried to pass it off as a reliable source and 2) "re-edited" the article claiming that they were assured in chat that their source was reliable, even though no new source had been added to the article. These are obvious attempts to game the system. (Note: the only sources provided so far have been IMDB and the phony press release.) LaMona (talk) 16:17, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Just for a bit more context on this, the submitters have been pulling some really transparent stunts to try to fool us into taking the press release as an independent reliable source in and of itself — the most recent time, which LaMona rejected today, the press release was actually credited to a fake publication whose name was "Independent Third Party Entertainment News Publishing Source". It was actually the same press release, on the same platform, as when I rejected it just one week ago, although some of the details had been reedited in the intervening days: when I rejected it, the publication's name was credited differently (but still verifiably nonexistent), while the page content contained an extended disclaimer at the top about how independent and encyclopedically reliable that publication was. (As I pointed out in my rejection comment, however, the sources don't get to tell us whether they pass our RS rules or not — we make that decision ourselves according to our rules.) And the first time they tried the self-written press release angle, which was rejected by Wiae, it was the exact same press release it's been both times since, just posted to Digital Journal instead of Newswire.
Looking back, there was one other source, rejected by both Wiae and myself on two separate occasions, that was formatted as a Q&A interview. I rejected it because Q&A interviews don't count toward WP:GNG, but I had only eyeballed the format. Looking at it again now, I see that I completely glossed over the even more outrageous problem with it: it was actually also a press release, formatted to look like it was coming from a more independent reliable media source than it really was but then giving away its provenance as a press release at the end, and featuring really bad, meandering and blatantly unprofessional interview questions designed to ensure that every claim of fact in this article was directly referenceable to it (e.g. mentioning twelve different movie credits in the lead-up to a question that didn't actually have anything to do with any of them, so that every single title in his filmography list was being directly named by the source as well.) So it was also a fake self-published source created by the same person or people trying to get this through our gates.
A potential article subject is not allowed to game our system by creating their own fake sources to cover off our referencing requirements — it takes real media coverage in real media, not self-published press releases credited to fake media outlets, to get a person into Wikipedia. This page was first created just 12 days ago, and in that time has already been submitted and rejected seven times — and every single one of those times, the sourcing was either (a) nonexistent, (b) parked on blogs and podcasts, or (c) a variation on this "trying to curveball a press release around the fence" game. Delete, preferably with a liberal dose of salt because having to deal with this is getting tiresome. Bearcat (talk) 21:24, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Update: For the record, I've found the discussion which the creator was referring to when they claim to have been told that the press release was an acceptable source — not surprisingly, they misrepresented the discussion that actually took place. The press release was not offered for direct evaluation, but rather the OP simply put forward an assertion of having a "THIRD PARTY, Journalist written, Biography about the actor's career" — to which the response was "Would you mind adding the source to the draft? Third-party is good, but it's difficult to judge these things based on generic descriptions." So no, they definitely were not told that it was a good enough source — at best, they were told that we would have to see the source before we could figure out whether it was good enough or not.

A previous discussion determined that, because a draft is conceptually very similar to an Article for creation submission, it should be treated the same way, at least in terms of the WP:G13 criteria for speedy deletion; that is, it ought to be deleted after 6 months of inactivity. This draft has been abandoned for 18 months (and the user who created it has also been blocked all this time), so I figured I'd re-initiate the MfD discussion. IagoQnsi (talk) 19:54, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete The proposal for such things is at Wikipedia_talk:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#G13_Drafts under a current RFC which seems heavily opposed so I don't think this should be re-done via MFD. However, I'd argue it's still viable for deletion under WP:NOTWEBHOST since it's a draft that won't likely be an article any time soon given the history and the blocked user. If someone wants a second chance at it, they can make a request at DRV showing that there are new sources rather than a new draft. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 20:02, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Keep I adopted the draft in December 2015 based on its sourced contents and using the draftify script put it in draftspace under the AFC banner. A separate sourced stub on the surname, separate or as part of the Donnelley article, could be created as noted. I haven't followed up that much but I can expand upon it. If desired, I'll userify it and work on it on my own then. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 20:08, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
It's certainly no good as it is and the original editor is not going to do anything, so if you are prepared to userify it and do something here, I have no objection to either option. If you useify it you can take all the time you want,but if you leave it here it would be best to work on it in a timely fashion. You decide. ww2censor (talk) 22:30, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Well maybe it's not so bad really. As you say it does have some sources. I suppose if you added some notable Donnelly's it might be as decent, or even better, than some of those other surnames. One way or another someone should try to get it out of here to mainspace or userify but it's not for me as I have other interests. ww2censor (talk) 23:47, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Maybe unambigous advertising. Unlikely this business is going to warrent an article under WP:CORPDEPTH and this is an old stale draft anyway Legacypac (talk) 22:35, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Promotionally written, but given the sourcing it looks (AGF) like a real attempt for a proper article, and given that the editor made a few productive edits, labelling as "unambigous advertising" is unfair. Replace with {{Inactive userpage blanked}}. Things like this don't need to come to MfD. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 00:32, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Note that it had not been touched since the day it was created in Feb 2011 - until after it was nominated for deletion today. If the user wants to submit it to the encyclopedia they should do that very soon so the notability can be assessed by other editors. It is reasonable to work on drafts, but 5 years is a bit long for drafting, raising the issue of Not a Webhost. Legacypac (talk) 01:57, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Old subpage of no value to Wikipedia. The title is not the name of the school, which is also not a high school (it is a K-8 school) and is therefore not given an automatic notability pass.

Editor has not edited on Wikipedia since 2011. Does not want this moved to mainspace. See talk for reasons, However, since this is not going to mainspace it should be removed, Legacypac (talk) 07:31, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Remove delete as it seems like they were related, I didn't look in the right history. A history merge seems messy so a redirect seems sufficient. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 21:05, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment - regrettable that this editor never returned, and maybe a sad commentary on our support for editors with disabilities. I think it may be worthwhile to hear from Petrb here. He adopted this user back in the day. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 19:57, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Expanding: Khaled Abol Naga seems to be a cut-and-paste copy of the mainspace article from an older revision, which Aakheperure was intending to work on, and since it got bumped to main space at some point there are contribs from other editors. This might require a messy history merge. On the other hand, Tarek Naga seems to have been a frequent target of a sockpuppeting editor who liked to cut-and-paste userspace drafts to main space to steal credit for them; it's already been histmerged at least twice. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 20:08, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
  • History merge the Khaled Abol Naga draft with Khaled Abol Naga per my comment above; move the Tarek Naga page to Draft:Tarek Naga per Ricky81682. I'm sympathetic to the desire of an impaired editor to create and work on articles in the way that works best for them, so long as that is in the best interests of Wikipedia (and it often is), but Wikipedia is a collaborative project and nobody owns pages, not even in their user space. They've evidently retired, and someone else should have a chance to work on these pages. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 20:13, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I should have made more clear - I'm very sympathetic to the editor's desire to edit in draft space given his visual impairment. I just bring the stale pages for appropriate action. Legacypac (talk) 21:09, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

So ok to ignore the author's request not to move the draft? Legacypac (talk) 21:34, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
WP:OWN. They agreed to give up their total rights when they edited here under the GFDL. We've had editors come here, and someone changes their page or renames it and they start demanding retraction of their edits and deletions of everything and they're told, either you follow these rules or you're treated for the disruption you're causing. If not, we could delete it but I don't think that's ultimately productive and frankly I don't like the precedent of "this is content, Wikipedia can only have it if I get to decide what happens to it." -- Ricky81682 (talk) 23:31, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
On the other hand, if the editor does return and wishes to edit using their process of downloading the article, editing offline, and then uploading their revised version, I think we can be sympathetic to that. As long as they're actively editing. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 22:06, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Alain Ngamayama[edit]

Draft:Alain Ngamayama (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

October 2010 draft. I shouldn't have added the AFC tag but this was also blanked here by User:Abcmaxx who wasn't really a contributor here so I think it's best to list it for discussion. Ricky81682 (talk) 03:18, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete - Questionable it seems. SwisterTwister talk 06:55, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete I blanked it because there is already an article Alain Ngamayama. I made the actual article. Abcmaxx (talk) 07:15, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Then it should be redirect to keep the attribution not deleted. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 08:11, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure what should be done with these. These were all created in late 2014/early 2015, all moved to draftspace in early February 2015 and have basically been untouched since then. They aren't a part of AFC so they'll never fall under G13 or be reviewed that way. They could be kept here in draftspace but no one has seen them in close to a year. Does someone want to adopt it? Should they just be kept and examined in another year or so? [Note that 2010 in Jordan exists already and the other empty pages have been deleted under A3.] Ricky81682 (talk) 02:50, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment - I choose not to vote but I've been busy so I don't think I can work on them for now. Deleting them seems to be the best option as if I feel like adding events to those pages I could just create the page. Jackninja5 (talk) 05:17, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
In retrospect, we could just move them to mainspace. It's not like they aren't going to be created eventually. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 08:12, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete all, would fail CSD:A3 if they were articles and they have been left untouched for so long that there is no likelihood anything will be added. Stifle (talk) 13:45, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep all They have genuine potential for an article. Someone should just add one or two events each and move them to mainspace. DGG ( talk ) 01:31, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep all Can be easily moved to mainspace after just minor content additions. This is a very good use of draft namespace. 103.6.159.84 (talk) 17:17, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Grovo[edit]

Draft:Grovo (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Not a chance of being acceptable: it is almost identical to the repeatedly deleted mainspace article. DGG ( talk ) 01:55, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

That is categorically false. The original mainspace article was only deleted once, by DGG, after it was up for years with no issue, not "repeatedly" as DGG falsely claims. I've pasted the full version of the original deleted article below. The only section that is the same in the new draft is the "funding" section, which lists the amounts raised in various rounds and the company's investors. Besides that, the new draft at :Draft:Grovo (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) is very different. I am not a very experienced editor, so I'm going to work harder to make sure that I'm complying with the Wikipedia culture and policies when contributing content. I ask that you not delete the draft, and instead allow me to fix it. Goodwork84 (talk) 15:48, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
@Goodwork84: DGG is correct: the mainspace article was deleted three times. JohnCD (talk) 16:57, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Salvagable with a rewrite. No question that the article could use some work (I already did some editing on it at AfC), but let's look at the sources. Some are bloggy or just mentions, but I find these sources that are substantial in my estimation:

  • Information Age has about four paragraphs on their training
  • PC Magazine a software review, pretty extensive
  • VentureBeat I don't know this publication, but the article is substantial
  • TechCrunch substantial article, generally considered a reliable source

Then there are the articles about it being named "best place to work" by Internet Week, but I'm not sure that really counts toward notability. I also don't usually count the sources and info about funding as supporting notability, and I think that section could be reduced. I usually see funding info (as well as revenue info) to be an insider view -- it's what matters to the people working for the company, but not for someone looking for information on WP. So if the funding and the "best place to work" were reduced to a sentence or two each, we're left with their training, which I woulnd't call their "Business model" as it is in the article now. We'd have a paragraph or two about the training using the four sources above as a basis. That's what I think could be salvaged from this article. LaMona (talk) 17:33, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete This draftspace one should be deleted because the mainspace one has the prior, full history. The editor should go and argue for restoration of the original mainspace one at DRV and present evidence there to restore the original one into mainspace and work off that. We don't need duplicate ones and in the chance this get approved, we'll probably have to history merge this anyways. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 01:29, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete Advert masquerading as an article, been rejected from mainspace, and will never pass here. Probably should block the editor as well, obvious COI SPA, who's clearly WP:NOTHERE. Joseph2302 (talk) 23:06, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
