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.) Images 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}} can be added to talk page to remember previous RfDs.

2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Invitation/* and Translations:2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Invitation/*[edit]

When Fuzzy moved 2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Invitation to Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Invitation, it forgot to also move its translations. Because of this, they can't be edited anymore, but they still appear as suggestions when translating similar messages. I propose the removal of all these (and these) pages, since some of them contain typos (that, as I said, can't be edited). Eduardogobi (talk) 23:02, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Those pages that could be moved over could be copy and pasted IF THERE IS VALUE in doing so. Or we could see if someone could move them over from the backend.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:39, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
As a comment, it seems that the bot should be improved to move Translation: ns pages if the main ns pages are moved.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:40, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal (WMF): who moved the parent pages.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:42, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
Indeed, FuzzyBot failed to copy over a lot of translations when we did the rename of the older surveys. I asked on IRC and it apparently is a known bug. Even with sysop rights it appears you can't delete or move them manually. I do have a script I can use to copy over translations from the old locations. I will do that. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 16:08, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
Although, I should point out that notification won't be used anymore (that was for the 2017 survey). Maybe we should just disable translations, at this point? What do you think Eduardogobi? MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 16:23, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
I've deleted the template. I don't think FuzzyBot deleted the new translations, or the old ones... Not much I can do there :( But hopefully it's at least not showing up as needing translation anymore. Regards, MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 19:34, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment That is an interesting question about YEAR pages and their translations. Do we wish to continue to have them open for translation and improvement? Or are these pages to be marked as historical and terminate translation. Even to the point of minimising further editing—which we can do by abuse filters.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:30, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Template:SWMT-Members and Category:Small Wiki Monitoring Team[edit]

The following discussion is closed: Kept. No consensus to delete. Matiia (talk) 18:11, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

I don't think these lists are useful: They are largely outdated (many of members are inactive), does not have a criterion for inclusion, i.e. does not define a type of access (and thus may be treated as a trophy by hat collecters, and vandals and trolls may edit it for seeking recognition). Therefore it's impratical to find active members using such lists (IRC may be a better way).--GZWDer (talk) 16:01, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep Keep if they are outdated, they should just be updated - and either way the historical information could still be useful. — xaosflux Talk 18:56, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per GZWDer. I think a lot of newish users edit that template and then use that as justification to run for global rollback. --Rschen7754 19:22, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment What does the list mean? If it is informative to explain why some users are making edits, then it has some value, and I do use it as a reference point. I would think that we may just do better in having it up-to-date. Let us see whether we set some criteria for its use and some idea about activity. Clean it up and review.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:00, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment Eh? During year 2014-2016 only after you have GR tool then you can move to active member section, and it's usually not themselves who moved it, but other user, because who can make the assessment on how experienced or how active I am is other people especially fellow SWMT member (on some case CVN people did the move).--AldNonymousBicara? 20:27, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep per Xaosflux ~Moheen (keep talking) 17:30, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep Maybe it would be a good idea to semi-protect it so that new users can not edit it. IRC does not seem like a good idea since not everyone uses (or can use) that platform to do anti-vandalism work and it would be a somewhat unfair limitation. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 17:37, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete or tag historical. Unmaintained collection of usernames that do or did SWMT work. It's useless after all too, given that you add yourself to the list and being in there doesn't confer you any special "powers" unlike the list of administrators, etc. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:16, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete per nomination. --Krd 10:18, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep and update. Nihlus 13:43, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep per Nihlus and Xaosflux.--Cohaf (talk) 11:09, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep. Currently there are few people managing and updating it.--AldNonymousBicara? 11:40, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
    I've done removing all inactives and updating the template.--AldNonymousBicara? 12:58, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep per Xaosflux and Aldnonymous. I still see some practical value in it. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 14:22, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Keep It still seems realatively useful as long as it's updated on a regular basis. --Az1568 (talk) 20:00, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Chittagong Wikipedia Community[edit]

As we have discussed previously (internal mailing list) to keep all the related pages on our Wikimedia site (in Bengali and English also). And I have already moved all the pages to the Wikimedia site. So no need to keep the same things twice. ~Moheen (keep talking) 13:30, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
As they are long-standing pages, I would think that we would as a minimum put in place {{interwiki redirect}}s for at least some of the pages where information was supplied and outward focused. Are there any incoming links to those pages, either internally or having been posted on the broader web?  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:07, 26 February 2019 (UTC)


Can Talk:IRC/wikipedia-fr be deleted (it was dummy before by blancking). My intent is to rename IRC/wikipedia-fr/Espace décisionnel to this page which looks more appropriate Xavier Combelle (talk) 23:17, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Done. Matiia (talk) 02:36, 8 April 2019 (UTC)


Can you remove this page, I only want my settings to work localy. thanks Japiot (talk) 19:04, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:20, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
