Deletions on tpi.wikipedia.org[edit]

Status:    Done

There have been a lot of pages about people created on tpiwiki with no useful content (just the name, date of birth/death and a picture, not a single word of Tok Pisin other than the category name), usually created by someone with a long history of crosswiki abuse (this person). I've been tagging the more recent ones for speedy deletion as I see them being created and they've been deleted by global sysops (tpiwiki has no admins) without any issues, so it seems like there shouldn't be a problem with proposing the older ones for deletion as a batch (tagging each page one by one is rather time consuming after all :)).

List:
