Meta:Requests for deletion

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
(Redirected from WM:RFD)
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.

Discussion open until at least 27 July 2024 (UTC)

A page that is not being maintained and irrelevant, though it could be kept as historical (now marked as so), though it is not particularly anything that assists in our history. The irony is that the deletionists should be nominating it, and the inclusionists will be saying keep it. I put it before the community for their opinions. Noting that if the page is deleted, then consideration should also be given for nominating the graphics for deletion at Commons afterwards. -- — billinghurst sDrewth 01:40, 19 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]



Submit your template deletion request at the bottom of this section.

Reopened request. The page is redirected to Template:=. However, Using of Template:Equal leads to transclusions of Template:=, which becomes a magic word and is deprecated. It is better to delete the whole page instead of leaving a redirect. 阿南之人 (talk) 04:04, 1 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Please take a look at Meta:Requests for deletion/Archives/2023#Template:Pipe, Template:Pipe (a redirect to Template:!) has the same situation as Template:Equal. So I think this should be deleted too according to that request. 阿南之人 (talk) 12:11, 10 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Speedy keep per above. Redirects are useful because some people may find difficulties if the redirect to the template is deleted. Ahri Boy (talk) 21:49, 20 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Do you know that Template:= is a magic word? Magic word templates should not have transclusions. Using the redirect results in transclusions of Template:=. 阿南之人 (talk) 03:15, 21 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Comment Comment The redirect is a redirect, and it should go whereever is the appropriate function. If you want to have a deletion conversation about Template:= then have that one.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:18, 19 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Billinghurst Yes, I'd also love to nominate that template too. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:27, 23 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Tagged by MGA73 as Template should not redirect to Template:Self. One is a license template. The other is not.. Not eligible for speedy deletion. * Pppery * it has begun 21:38, 4 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Comment Comment @MarcoAurelio: this is your redirect, in case you wish to express the purpose behind its creation.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:20, 19 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
