RationalWiki:Articles for deletion

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
There are 2 pages marked for deletion:
For the German political party known as 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), 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., severely problematic living person bio).

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 2018 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.

  1. Lacks a lot of information. The most constructive part I see in the article is his views on LGBT people. Despite that, it barley mentions anything else about him afterwards. Either this needs to be rewritten or trashed and started from scratch. TheEOE (talk) 22:17, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

  1. This article is clearly outdated and doesn't reflect Devon's recent turn into full race realism and white nationalist apologism. Perhaps it could work if heavily rewritten, but for now it acts as way to legitimise a radical racist by merely portraying him as a bit problematic, and I suggest it be deleted so people unfamiliar with Devon's channel aren't fooled into following his content based on this.

  2. This person warrants no more than a paragraph or two in our Webshites log. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 21:41, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Ideally, this article can use a rewrite, but I also agree that we shouldn't be trying to promote the views of someone turned "race-realist" and white nationalism. That being said, the first paragraph does already portray him as not exactly the most pleasant petunia in the garden. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 01:32, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I agree. This page does need a rewrite. However, I don't see how we where we were trying to promote his views. Also, he was in the "Batshit crazy" and "Insufferable assholes" categories. TheEOE (talk) 22:01, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
