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.

Wikimedians of Slovakia's Annual Report 2018Edit

Basically the same report, in 2 languages:

The text below is from the English version. The Slovak version have the same issue, with even stronger wording.

The report contains false and libelled information about me (Michal Matúšov). The organisation haven't reacted on Meta for 7 months; private consultation (regarding the file on WMSK's website) is ongoing. The false, libelled information is in the section "Board changes" and texts "Michal Matúšov resigned his position as well as his membership in the organization on 20 December 2018. As a result, Radoslava Semanová, the deputy chair, became the only board member able to act in the name of the organization. However, she was staying abroad at the time. Accordingly, the board asked Michal Matúšov to register the organization for 2%. The then chair asked for a 100 euro reward for such action. The board, knowing the potential outcome of the 2% registration accepted it." More information on the topic is on the Talk:Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/en.

I will only add that the matter has been brought to the attention of AffCom. WMSK and I personally have been supportive of this inquiry and we have offered all the necessary information and explanation to AffCom. I hope you, KuboF, have done the same. Be well!--Jetam2 (talk) 14:14, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Just a correction: WMSK, Jetam2 personally and ex-member of Audit Committee Lukas Mikulec was in fact very unsupportive of this inquiry. During 7 months they made absolutely no reaction on Talk:Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/en nor on Talk:Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/sk, during more than 1 month no reaction on the original RfD and even was covering-up the falseness of the information in the report. Good to know that this is the "support" that WMSK is providing for the Wikimedia movement...
But back to the topic: The report spreads false and libelled information about living person for 5 months. I again ask admins for deletion. --KuboF Hromoslav (talk) 19:36, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
I (and we) do not believe it is best practice to keep reacting and rereacting and rerereacting. Issues in the reports and others have been explained many a time on sk.wikipedia where they were first raised. See, especially here. There comes a point where more explanation will not advance anything. That is why we welcome AffCom's interest into the matter. Let AffCom judge our participation in the inquiry.--Jetam2 (talk) 20:26, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Jetam2, please keep this discussion on topic - its topic is the concrete report (Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/en, Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/sk), not any report (I am also not going to write here about bylaw violation of WMSK's functionaries here, simple because it would be off-topic...). I have raised objections about this specific issue on Talk:Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/en and Talk:Wikimedians of Slovakia/Reports/2018/sk but functionaries of WMSK was only covering up the issue without solving it. As the report is spreading false and libelled information about living person for more than half a year, I ask admins to proceed the request for deletion. --KuboF Hromoslav (talk) 10:48, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
I wish you took your own advice and not spread libelous information about a cover up etc. In any case, I now understood that the chronology was indeed reversed. I corrected it.--Jetam2 (talk) 12:14, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Please refer to the report discussion page.--Jetam2 (talk) 13:07, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

KuboF Hromoslav, would it help to just replace your real name with your username for now? (While as I understand other people are still figuring out what is going on). It definitely does not look constructive to delete the whole report. --Base (talk) 23:26, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

This may sound usable at a glance, but it introduces another problem. The text presented is an official document. Changing its content without clear decision of the Generally Assembly would break its integrity. As a, not the best, compromise I have emptied the page and put up into the listing direct link to the original version. Hopefully admins can delete it quickly and WMSVK correct it officially so the document will contain only truthful information. --KuboF Hromoslav (talk) 14:24, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
Blanking is hardly a compromise. For more information, I added a longer explanation of the contexts. Thanks!--Jetam2 (talk) 18:15, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

List of Wikipedias by language macrofamilyEdit

List of Wikipedias by language macrofamily

To be blunt, this page is pseudoscience. The "macrofamilies" detailed are hypothetical and lacking in linguistic evidence. The largest group, Nostratic, is described on en-wiki as "a controversial and mostly rejected hypothetical macrofamily". The second-largest, Austric is described as "proposed," and "remains unproven." The third largest, Dené–Caucasian, "is viewed as doubtful or rejected by nearly all historical linguists" (excluding one specific connection). Congo-Saharan is such an obscure idea that it is a redirect to a section that says only that the only proponent of the theory came to reject it later on. Armenid Amerind, the last one, is described on en-wiki as "rejected by the majority of historical linguists as spurious." This is a non-existent classification of languages and shouldn't be on meta. Zoozaz1 (talk) 01:11, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

It says Amerind, not Armenid, but other than that minor error this analysis is on point. These groupings are not widely accepted by linguists. As for whether it warrants deletion, Meta-Wiki doesn't have policies on original research or verifiability, but that doesn't mean the page has to stay. At the very least, it should probably be edited with a disclaimer that it's based on highly controversial assumptions. PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:06, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

User:Unknownfauser

User page of a departed user that appears to be at least a borderline attack page (no objection if another admin wants to speedy under G9) following an indef block on thier homewiki (fawiki). Recommend deletion without prejudice for recreating in line with the inclusion policy. — xaosflux Talk 23:11, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

This seems so similar to one other user (Ruhubelent). I suggest we give them the latitude to complain (which is what we do here on meta usually, I hate it but then there are endless pages like that), but not on global userpage. Revert to last clean version and Move this complain to user subpage. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:51, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
