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.

Translation requests/Guidelines for future chapters/source[edit]

This is an outdated translation request, when there wasn’t Translate extension. I don’t know what to do with actual translations, but I think they can be deleted too; do you agree? --Pols12 (talk) 22:48, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Any reason it can't be marked "historical" or "archived" and leave it as is? Why does it has to be deleted? — regards, Revi 07:29, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
The only page which links to this page is Translation requests/Guidelines for future chapters/status which has no related page.
However, I have looked at some other old Translation requests, there seem to have several practises:
  1. target page was the /source page; when ready, it has been moved, so /source is now only a redirection.
  2. target page content is copied into /source page.
  3. target page was transcluded in /source, then it may have been updated to use Translate extension, so /source unexpectedly displays translate tags.
I don’t know what was the usual policy regarding translation requests. Very few pages include Template:Translation source: were the other ones deleted? Pols12 (talk) 14:15, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
Keen to just mark it as historical/archived per -revi. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:58, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
So I tagged it with {{archive}}. I think this discussion may be closed. --Pols12 (talk) 22:23, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Requests for new languages/Wikivoyage Japanese/ja[edit]

I don't see any reason why RFL pages need translation, anyway, this project is already existing. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:21, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

  • Delete to stop this practice from spreading as having the translation splits the discussion.--Jusjih (talk) 04:36, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Quand le mouvement Wikimédia questionne le comment faire science[edit]

Plus all translations (subpages).

Imported from Wikiversity to use Translate tool (which was finally not used). It is still available on Wikiversity, and fully translated to English there. No page has linked to it on Meta. --Pols12 (talk) 18:30, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

If it's an exact duplicate of the Wikiversity one, then I think it can be deleted. Leaderboard (talk) 18:36, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Yes That's OK for me and Sorry about forfoted to ask it my self... Lionel Scheepmans Contact French native speaker, sorry for my dysorthography 20:24, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

User talk:Chaton masqué[edit]

Hello, @Martin Urbanec: there's a cross-wiki bully writing vandalism on my secondary account. IP is >> Besides, could you please protect Chaton masqué's talk page? Best regards, - Bédévore (talk) 23:53, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Done by Billinghurst - thanks! Best regards, Bédévore (talk) 00:11, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Portal:Chapter & Thematic Org Applications[edit]

Not exactly sure how page deletion is done on Meta Wiki but this page was created by a new editor who also had userboxes stating they were an administrator and checkuser. I'm following their behavior on the English Wikipedia and noticed that they started editing here so I came here to review their contributions. I don't know of a purpose this page would serve.
