Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
I don't like this page's name. I want to rename it to Articles for discussion or something else.
Please see Wikipedia:Perennial proposals#Rename AFD. Note that all of the "for discussion" pages handle not only deletion, but also proposed mergers, proposed moves, and other similar processes. AFD is "for deletion" because the volume of discussion has made it necessary to sub-divide the work by the type of change.
You mean I'm not supposed to use AFD to propose a merger or a page move?
Correct. Please use WP:Proposed mergers or WP:Requested moves for those kinds of proposals.

Automated alert system?[edit]

Is there any system for alerting users of and attracting them to deletion discussions, like how WP:FRS operates for RfCs? —烏Γ (kaw), 08:23, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Bumping this, both to attract an answer and to prevent archiving yet. —烏Γ (kaw), 02:58, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Florent Bezara[edit]

I have put a tag on Florent Bezara and noted the justification for deletion on Talk:Florent Bezara. Could someone please complete the process for me? Thanks. (talk) 03:27, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done DES (talk) 04:26, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Help in afd process[edit]

Could someone please complete the afd of Ali in the Quran and The verse of Mawadda. I have clearly stated my reasons for the nominations on the talk pages of both articles. Thankyou.-- (talk) 10:23, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ali in the Quran and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The verse of Mawadda. Procedural only, I have no opinion on notability as per usual. shoy (reactions) 15:16, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
Thankyou again.-- (talk) 02:08, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Am I done?[edit]

I followed the steps for deleting a page and people are putting in their two cents. I'm not sure what else I have to do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Punstress (talkcontribs) 09:30, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

You have started a lively debate! There is nothing more you "have to do", only keep track of the debate over its seven-day life if you wish. You are however free to put in a comment on anything that other editors write - I advise to prefix any such comment with Comment, not Delete, as your nomination is already understood as a "delete" !vote. Oh, and please sign your entries to talk pages and discussions (but never articles) by putting the code ~~~~ at the end: Noyster (talk), 11:42, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Neutral Comments Needed[edit]

An editor recently got a bit upset about an article nomination. I've tried to cool the fires by taking it the talk page. I would appreciate any neutral comments at Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion/Stephanie Powell Watts in an effort to defuse this. Thank you! -O.R.Comms 00:04, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Barron Trump[edit]

Whatever one's opinions of Donald Trump, his nine-year-old son, who has appeared occasionally on The Apprentice but never, to my knowledge, in a featured capacity, doesn't deserve a Wikipedia entry in his own right. I'd nominate for AfD but am not sure just what WP:BLP policy this violates, just that it crosses into "creep factor" territory. (@Professor JR: wouldn't you agree?) Help and insight here would be appreciated. Vesuvius Dogg (talk) 23:30, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

The name is a searchable term, but I would agree that just as a son of a wealthy person without any merits on their own, we should not have a separate page. It would likely be best to suggest a merge to Donald Trump. (Perhaps even "Family of Donald Trump" as similar to Family of Barack Obama) --MASEM (t) 23:41, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

I agree with Vesuvius Dogg and MASEM -- clearly a candidate for AfD. And, generally speaking, underage children of prominent figures and celebrities should be considered off limits. This, for a number of reasons, including privacy concerns -- which is why, as MASEM points out, there are not separate articles on Malia and Sasha Obama, but they are included in the Family of Barack Obama article. (For my part, I'm not even sure Wikipedia should include the 'Family of' articles, but just should list underage children in the article on the principal person). --- Professor JR (talk) 09:14, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I agree with AfDing Barron Trump. Although I think the Obama girls may be deserving of an article at this point, considering the high media attention compared to Trumps son. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 13:09, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
    • Media attention does not always mean a topic is notable on its own, particularly considering BLP (even moreso considering Barron's "minor" status) and the concept of inherited notability (which is what is happening for both of the Barack daughters and for Barron here). Part of the media loves to cover the family of anyone famous, just because of the spectacle, but that doesn't equate to encyclopedic coverage. --MASEM (t) 14:01, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
  • This should be AfD'd, and right quick. Capitalismojo (talk) 20:21, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
    • AFD is the wrong process however - unless there is something grossly wrong in light of BLP with the current page (I'm not seeing anything), the contributions are still reasonable, and as "Barron Trump" is a search term, the right solution is to WP:BOLDly redirect the page to Donald Trump, and if that is reverted by an editor, start a discussion on the talk page to get consensus. --MASEM (t) 20:26, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Hayden Black[edit]

I have posted my justification on Talk:Hayden Black. Thank you. (talk) 02:54, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by Samtar, see Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Hayden_Black. shoy (reactions) 12:10, 29 September 2015 (UTC)


The article seems a promotion of the company, their controllers and investors(!!). It survived an AFD so it may have relevance. A lot of references, but almost all not related. I think that if is not case for deletion, at least many content may be withdrawn. Caiaffa (talk) 16:54, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Malee (elephant)[edit]

I have nominated the page Malee (elephant) for deletion and put the nomination here: Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion/Malee (elephant). Can someone please move the nomination page to regular wikipedia space? -- (talk) 22:43, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by User:DN-boards1. -- (talk) 16:20, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Melissa Gira Grant[edit]

I have nominated this page for deletion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:26, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Please give a reason for deletion, as stated on the AFD template. shoy (reactions) 12:11, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
I've removed the redlinked AFD template - but as Shoy said, feel free to let us know why the article should be deleted and we'll have a look. The article was last reviewed in January 2014, where it was kept. See also Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Melissa Gira Grant. UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 13:14, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Twilight (CD-ROM)[edit]

Can someone move this rationale to the regular Wikipedia (not talk) namespace, remove the tag and add to the log? Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion/Twilight (CD-ROM) -- (talk) 19:45, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. The debate is now at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Twilight (CD-ROM), and the debate logged. UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 19:52, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
