Deletion guideline | Deletion log | Archives

We welcome and appreciate civil discussion of requests to delete or undelete pages when reasonable objections are made or are likely, the advice in Wikiversity:Deletions is followed, and other options have failed. A good attitude is to explain what you have tried, ask for help or advice from fellow Wikiversity participants on what to do now, keep an open mind, accept any community consensus, and focus on how pages can be improved. Finding ways to improve pages is the preferred outcome of any discussion and consensus here. Pages should always be kept when reasonable concerns are adequately addressed. Reasons and responses should be specific and relate to Wikiversity policy or scope in some way, kept brief, and stated in a positive or neutral way. Vague reasons ("out of scope", "disruptive") may be ignored.

A clear consensus should emerge before archiving a request. Often discussion takes a week or more to reach a clear consensus. Remember to add {{dr}} to the top of pages nominated for deletion. You can put "keep", "delete", or "neutral" at the beginning of your response, but consensus is established by discussion and reasoning, not mere voting.

How to begin discussion[edit source]

  1. Add {{Deletion request}} or {{dr}} to the image, category or resource nominated for deletion.
  2. Add a new section to the end of this page using the following format:
    == [[Page title]] ==
    reasons why this page ought to be deleted --~~~~

Undeletion requests[edit source]

If an article has been deleted, and you would like it undeleted, please list it here. Please try to give as close to the title as possible, and list your reasons for why it should be restored.

Deletion requests[edit source]

If an article should be deleted and does not meet speedy deletion criteria, please list it here. Include the title and reason for deletion. If it meets speedy deletion criteria, just tag the resource with {{Delete|reason}} rather than opening a deletion discussion here.

Chords (music)/Introduction[edit source]

This appears to be a duplicate of Chords (music), which contains more information. SelfieCity (discusscontribs) 14:54, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Redirected to the main page and changed other links to point to Chords (music). --Green Giant (discusscontribs) 18:30, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Contributions by User:Cheryl.kristine.johnson[edit source]

A series of brief stubs by User:Cheryl.kristine.johnson which offer no particular learning resources, and very briefly describe topics with better articles on Wikipedia.

All speedy deleted as lacking educational objectives. @Daask: Please use either {{Delete}} or {{subst|prod}} for these requests. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 18:42, 9 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Ixfd64: These are speedy delete requests. No discussion is necessary. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:22, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dave Braunschweig: Thanks for the information. I searched for a Wikiversity equivalent of the English Wikipedia's {{di-orphaned fair use}} but didn't find one. --Ixfd64 (discusscontribs) 21:41, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Image Cleanup[edit source]

  • File:System.JPG - Low quality and could be replaced with the following TeX formula:
    <math>x(t) \longrightarrow \begin{array}{ |c| }\hline O \{ \} \\ \hline\end{array} \longrightarrow y(t)
  • File:300 sandisk1,0.jpg - Unlikely to be "own work" as image appears to be from Amazon: [1]
    I've already replaced the image on the article on which it was used.
  • File:PQDVD Zune boxshot.jpg - Derivative work of copyrighted cover. No evidence copyright holder has agreed to release it under a free license. I've already replaced it with a free equivalent on the parent article.

YesY Done You're welcome to just tag them with {{Delete|reason}}. We tend to only discuss deletions that are likely to generate controversy, so we're a little hesitant when we see a lot of items pop up here. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 19:19, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. --Ixfd64 (discusscontribs) 19:20, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
