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.

1980s Wikipedia[edit]

This is a blatant joke proposal, which should never be put in a serious project area. This is just embarrassing clutter. Dronebogus (talk) 23:07, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Seems to contain contributions by several editors, and in the history seems to point to a RFH thread, I think there's sufficient scrutiny in the past for it to stand in it's existing form. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:53, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikimedia Tunisie/Bylaws[edit]

Per the advice of Trizek, in order to properly translate the Wikimedia Tunisia User Group bylaws using the translation extension, I request Wikimedia Tunisie/Bylaws/fr to be merged into Wikimedia Tunisie/Bylaws while maintaining the page history.

  • Delete all per nom. * Pppery * it has begun 15:26, 26 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    For the record, I continue to support deletion, and consider the entire concept of deprecating templates or keeping them to preserve page histories to be inherently counterproductive. * Pppery * it has begun 17:39, 3 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Keep, to preserve histories. But we still should request a bot to replace their calls, I think. --18:40, 19 August 2022 (UTC) — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pols12 (talk)
  • Deprecate per nom and Pols12. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 01:25, 20 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Keep Keep but mark deprecated, better to save for historical investigations. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:04, 30 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Keep Keep per above, I understand Pppery's argument but we have u n l i m i t e d s p a c e so I think the very marginal value of making historical revisions more readable is worth it. – Ajraddatz (talk) 06:39, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:Flow Navigation[edit]

Only used in one place, every linked page is historical, no longer serves a useful function. * Pppery * it has begun 21:20, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Category:News 2002 and all “News YYYY”[edit]

Categories “News YYYY” (from Category:News 2002 to Category:News 2022) in Category:News look pretty useless. Years categories (e.g. Category:2002) are sufficient, according to me. I ping Verdy p, their author. --Pols12 (talk) 14:04, 2 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They were categorizing by year, like all other years in the series. Note that there should be other members for each related year. This was done for some years, but the simple Category:2002 for example would contain things not related to (Wikimedia) news but also for other things or events. Many of these categories have multiple pages. But they may also be grouped in "News by year", to avoid overpopulating "Category:News". Over time, the number of pages has increased, and there are subtopic in "Category:News" that are also dated and could have also their members sorted by year. There's been an old project to trace the history of Wikiemdia and make it summarizable and easily searchable. verdy_p (talk) 21:03, 2 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Category:Scribunto modules with errors[edit]

Obsolete category, see gerrit:160367 * Pppery * it has begun 03:25, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
