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.

Category redirect demo page[edit]

The first page is apparently supposed to demonstrate the use of a category redirect on a page, but the redirect has been "fixed" by {{noping|MABot]] since 2017. This also resulted in a category loop at the non-redirect cat. Do we really need a demonstration like this here on Meta? ~~~~

No; this is more something within's scope for a technical documentation page, not really something to be messing around with in Meta-Wiki mainspace. Vermont (talk) 22:57, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Delete per Vermont. We don't need these testings on mainspace. No objection if it is in some user space or whatsoever. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:51, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Template:JS migration[edit]

Per w:Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2021 March 21#Template:JS migration * Pppery * it has begun 16:56, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]

What about the pages where it is still in "use"? --MF-W 22:59, 9 October 2021 (UTC)[]
It does nothing other than populate a maintenance category which is now useless (for the reasons I explained on enwiki) and should be removed in all of those cases. * Pppery * it has begun 04:16, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[]


I don't see how useful this template this is for meta. Sure, it's the format used when a Wiki goes into a soft closure, but regardless, it has no useful purpose on meta (I also have the concern that the IP that started this template thinks that Wikipedia is the only WMF project, although that's irrelevant to this request). And finally, its not used anywhere, nor even linked (except on this page). Didn't notify the page creator since the IP that started it is globally blocked.

Just noticed this at special:PageTranslation. Indeed this seems more like something in scope of Incubator. However, since templates like this are usually substituted, the lack of transclusions would in general not be a problem, even if the template was years old. ~~~~

Category:Wiki Women Edit-a-thon Nepal 2016[edit]

It does not look like this one is any different from Category:Wiki Women Edit-a-thon 2016, and the main category is named Category:Wiki Women Edit-a-thon without a mention of Nepal. ~~~~

Category:Dagbani Wikimedians Chapter/Templates/Tabs[edit]

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. ~~~~

Looks like this is redundant to the much older Category:Page protection category. ~~~~

13:28, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]

I (category creator) agree. Apokrif (talk) 13:45, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Recategorised the three pages. I could have just G6 speedied it now, but I figured redirecting would be the better alternative. ~~~~

Category:Page Elements[edit]

I can't make sense of this – how are the two templates specifically related to "page elements"? ~~~~

Category:Tools or Category:Tools and scripts[edit]

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. ~~~~

As far as I understand it, this should have been replaced by category:Templates/yue. ~~~~

Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Wiktionary[edit]

There’s nothing wrong with the proposal. 10:08, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Seems the proposal is just empty and the above is trolling but let me ping @MF-Warburg: on the safe side. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:45, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
+ Talk:Proposals_for_closing_projects/Closure_of_Wiktionary should be deleted too? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:47, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
