Meta:Requests for deletion

Requests and proposals Requests for deletion Archives (current)→
This page hosts local (i.e., Meta-Wiki) requests for page deletion. For requests for speedy deletion from global sysops or stewards, see Steward requests/Miscellaneous. Any language may be used on this page. Before commenting on this page, please read the deletion policy, in particular the criteria for speedy deletion, and the inclusion policy. Please place the template {{RFD}} on the page you are proposing for deletion, and then add an entry in an appropriate section below. As a courtesy, you may wish to inform the principal authors of the page about the request. After at least one week, an administrator will close and carry out the consensus or majority decision.

Articles that qualify for speedy deletion should be tagged with {{delete}} or {{delete|reason}}, and should not be listed here. (See also speedy deletion candidates.) Files with no sources should be tagged with {{no source}} and need not be listed here, either. To request undeletion, see #Requests for undeletion. See Meta:Inclusion policy for a general list of what does not belong on the Meta-Wiki.

Previous requests are archived. Deletion requests ({{Deletion requests}}) can be added to talk page to remember previous RfDs.

WikiLang pagesEdit

117 pages

Out of project scope. Apparently a full proposed wiki drafted in Meta's mainspace. Export to Wikibooks, where this might fall in scope, or delete. ~~~~

Yeah...we're not Incubator, and I don't know if this would fall within Incubator's scope anyways. It doesn't exactly need immediate deletion, but it would be better to find somewhere else for this content to sit and potentially be developed. Best, Vermont (talk) 20:33, 10 December 2021 (UTC)
@Minorax as incubator / enwikibooks sysop can you see is it possible to move either to incubator (which I think is unlikely) or Wikibooks (we just treat it as a book there?). Thanks so much. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:32, 14 December 2021 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: Content seems to fit well in wikibooks' scope. Will import it tomorrow. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 14:56, 14 December 2021 (UTC)
Done for mainspace pages, wikibooks' way of categorizing pages is slightly different and I don't see a need to import them. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 01:57, 15 December 2021 (UTC)
Thanks @Minorax. I think can be safe to delete from here. Delete all. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:12, 24 December 2021 (UTC)
I was asked to comment here. This looks like a clone of the respective pages at Wikibooks (in fact, I thought at first that these pages were from 2004 or something like that). Hence I would recommend moving to Wikibooks (which Minorax did?) and delete them - does not belong here at least. Leaderboard (talk) 18:21, 16 December 2021 (UTC)

IP soul mateEdit

The following discussion is closed.

This page is purely original research, and I see no point to keep it here. Stang 22:06, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

That page was not "research", but rather intended for humour. I have addressed the concern by rephrasing it into an essay. While I would prefer to keep it, I wouldn't mind otherwise. Kind regards and have a nice day. Elominius (talk) 01:20, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
Seems in line with the other pages we have about editors, I think this can be humor and leaning keep. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:08, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

Kept. Tagged humorous too. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:17, 16 January 2022 (UTC)

Duplicate of Template:Humor/fr. Little usage that can be replaced afterwards -or- we can redirect it to Template:Humor/fr. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:28, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Replace uses and then redirect to Template:Humor. Use of the British English spelling is not by itself sufficient to indicate French. * Pppery * it has begun 16:47, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Category:Dagbani Wikimedians Chapter/Templates/TabsEdit

These aren't templates, and I'm not sure what this has to do with "tabs". Looks like all of these can be recategorised under Category:Dagbani Wikimedians Chapter, which only cointains Category:Dagbani Wikimedians Chapter/Templates at the moment, though it might be worth renaming it to Category:Dagbani Wikimedians User Group in line with the mainspace pages. ~~~~

If you insist to delete, it then at least can we simply rename it to Category:Dagbani Wikimedians User Group without moving, just so we can keep all the subpages intact? -—M@sssly 17:53, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't understand your request. ~~~~

Rename the categories to User Group rather than Chapter; and move everything in /Templates/Tabs to Category:Dagbani Wikimedians User Group. (since they aren't templates; only the header/footer directly under Category:Dagbani Wikimedians Chapter/Templates are. –SJ talk  18:47, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

Category:Tools or Category:Tools and scriptsEdit

Currently, we have the two categories Category:Tools and Category:Tools and scripts, which are only linked to each other by a "see also" hatnote. The first one is categorised under Category:Software and Category:Infrastructure, while the second one belongs to Category:Documentation. Judging by the name though, it looks that both have essentially the same scope, so this splitting makes pages harder to find. While "Tools" is shorter and more concise, "Tools and scripts" appears to be slightly more inclusive, as well as having a significantly higher number of translations. I would lean towards deleting/redirecting the first one, though I am open to see additional arguments here. ~~~~

Are there anyone have ideas on how can a bot script or template populates one of both? If no such scripts or templates, I prefer merge 1st to 2nd. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:27, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
I also prefer merging two categories (are all the same). Thingofme (talk) 16:11, 15 December 2021 (UTC)
