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]

  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]

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]

Boubaker Polynomials/Wikipedia and Subpages[edit]

User:TheDragonFire has asked at [1] for Boubaker Polynomials/Wikipedia/SPI to be moved to a more appropriate space. Upon review, there doesn't appear to be an appropriate space for this content. The primary author is globally banned [2] for activities similar to this research, and the secondary author sees no purpose for maintaining the content [3].

Similar to Cold fusion and Parapsychology deletions in January, Boubaker Polynomials/Wikipedia and subpages have been deleted. Any future work on this subject will require pre-approval at Wikiversity:Community Review under Wikipedia Studies or a similar title. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:53, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
