Suggestion[edit]

Have a list somewhere 'The 2018 list of YouTube entries retired from RW' - to avoid repeated create-deletes (and for 'suitably bored persons' to keep an eye on in case they suddenly become notable again) - and repeat elsewhere if relevant. Anna Livia (talk) 17:34, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

But isn't that the point of a properly-written delete log that you see before you create the page? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 18:20, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes a specific list is more convenient.
As there is a RW page on YT a link from there here would suffice (and adding the year in the expectation of a future clear-out might be appropriate). Anna Livia (talk) 20:19, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Well I did a full audit of the Youtube category to get the list, see User:Dysklyver/youtubers to be deleted. This could be copied and adapted perhaps into some kind of index. This seems a reasonably good idea. — Dysk (contribs) 22:53, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
And having a dateline (or a longer list with '2018 deletions, 2019 deletions...') enables 'this person/presentation has had increasing views influence since, so restore.' Anna Livia (talk) 12:14, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
