November 2004[edit]

  • VFD: RaD Man: see the interesting comments by deletionists  Kept
    • Amazingly, this was put up for vote again just a few days after the close of the previous VfD.
  • VfD: Hackcanada: Canadian Hacker site/organization. Turns up over 9,000 his on google.  Kept
  • VfD: TEXTFILES.COM: An extremely noteworthy archive site, akin to the Internet Archive, up for deletion minutes after the article creation for no apparent reason.  Kept
  • VFD: Glasgow slang: messy article that should have been listed cleanup, not VFD  Redirected


December 2004[edit]

  • VfD: Jason Scott - hacker activist who also runs textfiles.com (see below) and is notable for a number of other reasons.  Kept
  • VfD: William Greer: The driver of the presidential motorcade during the JFK assassination  Kept
  • VfD: San Marin High School: A notably infamous highschool which has repeatedly been the focus of hatecrime, receiving mass media coverage.  Kept

January 2005[edit]

  • VfD: Criticism of Wikipedia Further attempts at CENSORSHIP by deletionists. This is a subject which has received widespread coverage in the press, and cites links to CNN, The Guardian, and other media outlets to justify its notability.  Kept
  • VfD: GNAA A famously known (or infamously known) organization. Annoying, but not as annoying as the deletionist trolls on Wikipedia. Over 11,000 hits on Google. [1]  Kept
  • Vfd: Blunsdon United: A policy-setting article? Maybe not. But it has the potential to become one of the most charming articles on Wikipedia. Please help out by watching it and improving the contributions the anons have been putting in, that's all I ask. (Vote for or against, as you like, but give people something good to judge.)  In Progress

w:User:Flameviper12/Randomness (Speech) - I made this to comment on the kind of randomness in speech (I LIKE CHEESE), but I need help to wikify it? Please?

All nominated by the same person -_- 207.172.73.141 04:51, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

The following have been nominated en-masse today as part of what appears to be an orchestrated or semi-orchestrated campaign to target specific micronations and the individuals supporting them:

  • Gay & Lesbian Kingdom... - FOURTH AFD for this article. Last one barely a month ago. Micronation has notable international media coverage. Kept

202.171.182.138 03:25, 4 February 2006 (UTC) Kept

  • Prinsessakerho, an award winning Finnish exclusive club with artists, musicians and porn stars as members. Started as a VfD, but was changed to speedy very soon. Can we somehow request undeletion or atleast have a fair VfD? --Easyas12c 02:52, 21 January 2006 (UTC)  Deleted
  • Mike Randall is the president of a regionally accredited university. He is also a notable editor and scholar. However, there are more votes to delete than to keep. --Jason Gastrich 02:04, 19 January 2006 (UTC) Kept
  • Ron Moseley is a notable author and the president of a university. However, there are more votes to delete than to keep. --Jason Gastrich 02:04, 19 January 2006 (UTC) Kept
  • Literary punk genres' this entire listing, they're putting up for deleting every sub-genre of Cyberpunk: including Dieselpunk, Stonepunk, Mannerpunk, Nazipunk, Bronzepunk, Ironpunk, Middlepunk, Splatterpunk, Spacepunk, Clockpunk, Sandalpunk etc... out of pure insolence and ignorance. Piecraft 17:05, 23 December Friday 2005 (UTC)
  • Chuckie Mullins (should more properly be spelled Chucky -- I've suggested that in my vote). College football player who died from injuries received during a game. Has been the subject of a documentary film and numerous articles; the College Charity Bowl was founded to pay his medical bills. Article (which does need a lot of work) is up for deletion as a non-notable memorial; currently six votes to delete, one to keep. Perodicticus 11:43, 14 January 2006 (UTC)  Kept
  • Eduard Einstein Schizophrenic son of Albert Einstein; subject of at least one biography; frequently cited example of an individual with scizophrenia. The deletionists are in full swing, with the only justification being that Eduard is not notable enought to justify an entry, despite the fact that he is famous. 69.180.51.7 22:38, 11 January 2006 (UTC)  Kept
  • GH avisualagency a verifiable art and design collective with numerous sources cited. vote has been overrun by deletionists and corrupt administators who have hostiley ganged up on all the keep voters, mislabeling them all as sockpuppets without presenting proof, ie) tracing any of the IPs. vote has now been wrongly protected by deletionist admin Brookie to lock out further keep votes. this is totally unfair and wrong. please help! Inspectorpanther 00:37, 23 December 2005 (UTC)  Deleted
  • 21 Society University of Virginia secret society. Was originally listed as unverifiable; numerous sources were cited, but people continue to vote "delete" with no other justification given besides "NN". It's an interesting, verifiable, non-vanity, NPOV article and I don't see how keeping it would be bad for Wikipedia. - AdelaMae 21:45, 20 December 2005 (UTC)  Kept
  • Literary punk genres this entire listing, and category is not up for deletion, but it could be a group of editors from the Dark City article who have no previous understanding or knowledge of the literary genre of punk are attemtping to remove certain genres from the list which have notability. Please help and share your support by sharing comments and opinions on the talk page. Thanks in advance, and any help is appreciated - let's make Wikipedia better by keeping relevant articles and not deleting them just because it doesn't fall into the ideals of certain opponenets. Piecraft 16:40, 16 Friday 2005 (UTC)
  • AfD: Obscurami this article I started is up for deletion before I or anyone else had the time to devote further time in expanding and adding further sources. If you believe it is relevant then please support it - otherwise allow it to burn. Piecraft 12:17, 3 Saturday 2005 (UTC)  Deleted
  • VfD: Category:Dieselpunk this entire category, relevant in archiving elements which refer to the Dieselpunk genre is up for deletion for no true reason other than a member thinking it is a "bizarre collection of articles" - please do the right thing and help support keep this category in. It is as neccessary as Steampunk. Thanks. Piecraft 03:20, 3 Saturday 2005 (UTC)  Kept
  • w:DoYouDo This one was labeled "spam" by several users due to irregular behavior by an anon. It is merely informational, rather than promotional. 205.217.105.2 16:32, 29 September 2005 (UTC)  Kept

 Deleted

--Daniel Lotspeich 09:48, 11 October 2005 (UTC)
  • VfD: Salad Fingers theories - Perhaps one of the most analysed in-depth article which serves no harm but benefit being unfairly voted for deletion despite large support  Kept

--80.2.175.184 15:00, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

  • VfD: Black Pullet - an extremely important grimoire relevant to the occult! This was put up for deletion for no good reason. Piecraft 14:46, 25 August 2005 (UTC)  Kept
listed as a copyvio as well. - I have added a new revised version of this article please check it and support the continuation of keeping this relevant article upheld, thanks. Piecraft 21:38, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
  • commons:List of victims of the 1913 Great Lakes storm. Vital importance. This list and others like it are being pushed off of the entire Wikimedia project. It started at Wikipedia, where they were VFDd in favor of moving to Wikisource/Commons. Now they are being VFDd off Wikisource (they don't really belong there, since they are not original source texts), with people there saying they should be on WP/Commons, and it is also being VFDd on Commons, where people don't realize that Commons accepts texts (says so right on the Main Page). This will set a precedent for any lists created by users.  Deleted
  • VfD:David Madden Second Jeopardy contestant ever to win 9 consecutive games.  Kept
  • VfD:Office_Etiquette - Usefull knowledge. So far no good reason to delete, but in majority right now.  Kept
  • VfD:Fate of Io - Slightly notable game for being a pioneering open-source project and has a somewhat unique community. Delection on grounds of "non notability".  Deleted
  • I do not know where else to post this but I created a page (Wikipedia:Checkers) that I can understand would need to be deleted; however, the page was blanked out without even being sent through to VfD. THAT is what I have a problem with! Also, Chess is here in the Dep't of Fun and who complains?? 70.152.128.107 20:38, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • vfD: Tristan Louis Minor figure in the early fight against regulation of the Internet in the United States.  Kept
  • en:List of incidents that have been considered great blunders A wonderfully useful article and the subject of a number of books and documentaries. Viciously attacked by deletionists people unaware of the intricacies of the NPOV policy. It does have a few supporters, but our voices are being drowned out. Please help save this article!  Kept
  • VfD: Ivan Cherevko: Completely correct article, low Google count. Speedied at first, now VfDed.  Deleted
  • VfD: Jason Kottke: And another famous individual, highly notable within his field of blogging  Kept
  • VfD: paniq: A distinguished demoscene musician out of Germany.  Kept

Comment: It appears that the concensus was to disambiguate and redirect although this was not done by Pcb21. Someone may want to address this.
