There are 3 pages marked for deletion:
For the far-right German political party known by the abbreviation AfD, see Alternative für Deutschland.

Some articles on RationalWiki are ripe for plucking and deletion. If you think an article fits this description (and there is no page that it could be better merged with), here are the steps to take to put it on this page:

  1. Add {{Article for deletion}} or {{Article for deletion|Reason}} to the top of the page you think needs deletion.
  2. Press the save button to get the rest of the instructions to populate.
  3. The second line of instructions that appear below the deletion template allow for pre-populating a discussion, click that button, replace the word "Reason" with your reasoning for wanting to delete the article.
  4. Finally add {{RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/ReplaceMeWithTheArticleName}} to top of this list. Don't forget to change the ReplaceMeWithTheArticleName to the proper article name from step 3.

Please notify the creator/main editor(s) on their talkpage using {{afdnotice|(Replace with exact article name '''including namespace''')|(Replace with AFD rationale)}}, particularly if it's new and the users are active.

Then wait a while and see what the mob thinks, unless there's an actual reason it needs to be taken out and shot quickly (e.g. a severely problematic/inaccurate living person's biography).

If the article you are attempting to create an AfD page for has had an AfD before, you will have to create a new subpage manually. Preferably, make it useful and easy to refer to in the future, such as putting the month or date or a version number of the second Afd.

If you are attempting to merge the article with another, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PAGE. That belongs at RationalWiki:Duplicate articles.

Also, if you think an article is substandard but still potentially on-mission, remember that a move to Draft: space might be sufficient.

And don't forget to subscribe. This will allow you to see when a new article for deletion is added.

To archive:

  1. Edit the AFD page to change the result from "?" to "deleted" or "kept" or whatever.
  2. Go to RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Log and remove the {{RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Article}}.
  3. Go to the 2021 archives and add {{RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Article}} at the top of the stack.

After deleting, add Category:Talk pages for deleted articles to the talk page if it has one.

Delete[edit]

  1. Off-mission, does not describe any of the hard-green woo that much; way too much editorializing. Antinatalism is already covered in its own article. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSteal my ideas 19:26, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

  1. Convert into a subsection in the article on antinatalism. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 19:40, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
    Nah, I think it's hopelessly biased, and largely keeps trying to convert the reader to the cause. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSteal my ideas 20:04, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Draft:Communist glossary | Result: ?[edit]

Draft:Communist glossary (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View AfD)

Delete[edit]

  1. Heavily biased, features way too much pro-communist editorializing that is hopelessly off-mission, instead trying to defend and promote a far-left ideology that is good on pen and paper, but doesn't work in practice. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 01:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
  2. Unless the pro-commie shit is purged and it's drastically improved, I'm voting for deletion. Twodots (talk) 01:52, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Keep[edit]

  1. It is missional, as communist states are notoriously fundementalist (obey the party line or be purged) and authoritarian. It needs to be expanded and many Marxist terms can be considered to be pseudo-scientific. Tuxer (talk) 01:47, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

  • What the hell happened to this page? It seems to have started as a general far left glossary (which would have been useful) and then @Tuxer seems to have renamed it to Communist ideology and pruned most of the examples they wrote. Proposing restoring this to left wing glossary with the previous examples instead of this. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 18:21, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
    I say we put it out of its misery. It has so much commie shit that basically listed a whole bunch of reasons why the middle class don't know what kind of government they want and why Karl Marx does that it should've been AFD'd long ago. --Goatspeed.

  1. I don't see the missionality in this subject. Perhaps a mention in Black Lives Matter and/or autism rights movement would suffice. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 22:50, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
    I'm not sure if I can vote on the subject, but I agree. The article also lacks reliable/unbiased sources and fails to properly cover the permanent incapacitation inflicted on the victim, so even just including it elsewhere might not be appropriate. UninspiringNickname (talk) 20:39, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
  2. Covering individual instances of our criminal justice system failing us is stretching the authoritarianism aspect of our mission.-Hastur! (talk) 07:16, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Keep[edit]

  1. Article is reasonably written and sourced and missional. ShabiDOO 07:04, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
  2. Keep - Don't find the article interesting, but its probably interesting to some people Neiltyson1fan (talk) 07:44, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Merge/redirect[edit]

  1. Merge with the relevant articles. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:56, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
  2. IMO this should be merged with our BLM article, where appropriate; it doesn't seem that missional. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 18:21, 5 December 2020 (UTC)
  3. Integrate in other relevant articles. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:03, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
  4. Yeah, makes more sense as part of a greater article-Hastur! (talk) 07:17, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
  5. Somebody should merge it, there are more votes for merge and it started in December. Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 13:08, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
