Example AfDs[edit]

WP:Speedy keep, non-delete nomination[edit]



I've read complaints of an AfD closed keep despite consensus to merge; a link to that AfD would be appreciated. Flatscan (talk) 02:34, 30 March 2009 (UTC)


Intended purpose of this essay[edit]

This essay is intended to describe current AfD practice with respect to mergers, without subjective judgment of how well or poorly it functions. Objective measures, such as merge closures regularly being challenged and overturned on strictly procedural grounds, would be relevant. Flatscan (talk) 03:59, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

AfD outcome statistics[edit]

This essay would benefit from keep/merge/redirect/delete statistics to back its assertion that merge outcomes are common. Flatscan (talk) 05:16, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
