Report vandalismVotes for deletion


Votes for deletion is the process where the community discusses whether a page should be deleted or not, depending on the consensus of the discussion.

Please read and understand the Wikiquote deletion policy before editing this page.

  • Explain your reasoning for every page you list here, even if you think it is obvious.
  • Always be sure to sign your entry or vote, or it will not be counted.


The process

Requesting deletions

To list a single article for deletion for the first time, follow this three-step process:

I: Put the deletion tag on the article.
Insert the {{vfd-new}} tag at the top of the page.
  • Please do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use the edit summary to indicate the nomination; this can be as simple as "VFD".
  • You can check the "Watch this page" box to follow the page in your watchlist. This allows you to notice if the VfD tag is removed by a vandal.
  • Save the page.
II: Create the article's deletion discussion page.
Click the link saying "this article's entry" to open the deletion-debate page.
  • Copy the following: {{subst:vfd-new2|pg=PAGENAME|text=REASONING — ~~~~}}. Replace PAGENAME with the name of the page you're nominating, and REASONING with an explanation of why you think the page should be deleted. Note that the signature/timestamp characters (~~~~) are placed inside the braces {{ }}, not outside as with standard posts.
  • Explanations are important when nominating a page for deletion. While it may be obvious to you why a page should be deleted, not everyone will understand and you should provide a clear but concise explanation. Please remember to sign your comment by putting ~~~~ at the end.
  • Consider checking "Watch this page" to follow the progress of the debate.
  • Save the page.
III: Notify users who monitor VfD discussion.
Copy the tag below, and then click  THIS LINK  to open the deletion log page. At the bottom of the log page, insert:
{{subst:vfd-new3|pg=PAGENAME}}

replacing PAGENAME appropriately.

  • Please include the name of the nominated page in the edit summary.
  • Save the page. Your insertion will be automatically expanded to the same form as the preceding lines in the file: {{Wikiquote:Votes for deletion/PAGENAME}}.
  • Consider also adding {{subst:VFDNote|PAGENAME}} ~~~~ to the talk page of the article's principal contributor(s).

Note: Suggestions for requesting deletion of multiple pages, non-article pages, and repeat nominations may be found at VFD tips.

Voting on deletions

Once listed, the entire Wikiquote community is invited to vote on whether to keep or delete each page, or take some other action on it. Many candidate articles will have specific dates by which to vote; if none is given, you can assume at least seven days after the article is listed before the votes are tallied.

To vote, jump or scroll down to the entry you wish to vote on, click its "edit" link, and add your vote to the end of the list, like one of these:

  • Keep. ~~~~
  • Delete. ~~~~
  • (other actions; explain) ~~~~
  • Comment (not including action) ~~~~

Possible other actions include Merge, Rename, Redirect, Move to (sister project). Please be clear and concise when describing your action.

The four tildes (~~~~) will automatically add your user ID and a timestamp to your vote. This is necessary to ensure each Wikiquotian gets only a single vote. You can add some comments to your vote (before the tildes) to explain your reasons, but it is not required. However, it may help others to decide which way to vote.

Please do not add a vote after the closing date and time; any late vote may be struck out and ignored by the closing admin.

NOTE: Although we use the term "vote", VfD is not specifically a democratic process, as we have no way of verifying "one person, one vote". It is designed to "take the temperature" of the community on a subject. Sysops have the responsibility of judging the results based on a variety of factors, including (besides the votes) policies, practices, precedents, arguments, compromises between conflicting positions, and seriousness of the participants.

Closing votes and deleting articles

Sysops have the responsibility to review the list and determine what articles have achieved a consensus, whether it is for deletion, preservation, or some other action. All candidate articles should be listed here at least seven days before the votes are tallied. Many VfD entries will have "Vote closes" notices to indicate when the votes will be tallied.

  • The sysop tallying the vote should add a "vote closed" header with the result of the vote, and sign it.
  • If consensus is for deletion, the sysop should follow the deletion process to delete the article.
  • If it is to keep, or if there is no consensus for action, the sysop should remove the {{Vfd-new}} tag from the article and post a notice on the article's talk page about the completed VfD, including a link to the VfD discussion on that article. The {{Vfd-kept-new}} template can be used for a standard notice.
  • There may also be a vote to move (rename) or otherwise change the article. The sysop's actions will depend on the specific situation in these cases. In those cases, a notice should also be posted on the talk page documenting the decision.

To avoid conflict of interest, a sysop should never close a VfD that he or she started. However, a sysop may close a VfD in which he or she has voted.

After a reasonable time, a sysop will then move the entire entry into the appropriate month page of the VfD log. (Some old discussions are available only in the old Wikiquote:Votes for deletion archive.)

Note: In the interest of cross-wiki cooperation, please check Wikipedia to make sure their articles don't link back to an article that has just been deleted. Also de-link any other language edition articles (though if you find that daunting, EVula is more than happy to do so).

Reviewing closed votes

All closed votes will be archived indefinitely in per-month pages at Wikiquote:Votes for deletion/Log. (A few are still found only in the old Wikiquote:Votes for deletion archive.) See that page for details.

Deletion candidates

  • Delete. With UDScott on this one. DawgDeputy (talk) 23:38, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Question: There are 3 (I think?) pages named The Northside Show (season x), where x=9,10,11. Why is 11 not nominated for deletion? Just curious to find out more about this area of WQ. Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 14:47, 6 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You are correct in that, should this page be deemed worthy of deletion, the other pages should also be deleted. At the time of nomination, this one had been given a PROD tag, which was removed, bringing it here. It was an oversight that the other pages were not also nominated at that time. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:51, 6 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Useless template that has been created by a well-known cross-wiki vandal. — JavaHurricane 08:23, 6 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Some of these templates, such as Imbox, may have uses; but others may not. I daresay it would be better if all these templates were discussed for their use, so that all the templates without use can be removed. JavaHurricane 08:43, 6 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Also noting that Template:Imbox seems to be useful, and hence I have not tagged it for deletion. JavaHurricane 08:50, 6 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Doesn't appear to be notable. May also be cross-wiki spam as it was moved back into draftspace on Wikipedia for being promotional and not notable. — Ferien (talk) 20:43, 9 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

(Two different accounts, but the same editor, now banned for abusing multiple accounts.) Even if you agree that Chevron behaved very badly to Donziger, disguising an editorial link farm as a Wikiquote article is wrong. HouseOfChange (talk) 00:24, 15 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

FakeWikipedia

Fake Wikipedia articles where one-sided opinions are presented as facts. Blocked POV-pushing editors created all these. Not one notable quote among them, nor is there likely to be on these topics. — HouseOfChange (talk) 22:23, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Vote closes: 23:00, 30 April 2022 (UTC)

The socks created some articles that can be rescued by adding good quotes. But these "fake Wikipedia articles," we should delete, because the topics are not suited to Wikiquote:

Blocked user Om777om has not been shown by Checkuser to be the same as the socks above, but he created 3 articles in this category that were later edited by the socks.

I apologize in advance if I'm not making this complex suggestion correctly. HouseOfChange (talk) 22:23, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, delete them all. I think doing these as a group is the best way to handle this problem. Antandrus (talk) 04:32, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Ottawahitech: Real Wikipedia articles achieve NPOV by relying on fact-checked RS before making assertions. These articles use quote selection, images, and bolding to imply that one point of view is endorsed by wikivoice. I have spent hours trying to improve other "sock" articles, where the topic is deep enough to inspire notable quotes. Wikiquote has an article on Crimes against humanity, it doesn't need one for Crimes Against Humanity Initiative . And so on. HouseOfChange (talk) 23:34, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Keep them all! Those are exellent pages that all who inquire should know about. Why hide or cover-up the truth? Do you calling for deletion wish to help tyrants and harm the people? It is sad that so many are so very afraid of the truth and want to hide it. They should be sent to the doctor's office. They should be advised that truth is the people's best friend and the worst enemy of tyrants. Real winners never lie and liars never win. Bless their hearts, eventually they'll know what i mean and see that hiding the truth is very wrong and that it will eventually set us all free! 66.190.126.146 17:19, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep United States embargo against Cuba, a notable topic that can likely be improved by adding quotes reflecting other perspectives; delete the rest, as the topics covered are on a smaller scale or are less cohesive as topics. BD2412 T 07:19, 26 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Some may want to consider that this particular page has clearly had significantly more interest than the others, as reflected below:

    1) Information Warfare Community, Created 8 Apr 2022, total pageviews: 450; 17 days; Avg pageviews per day: 26
    The topic is extremely relevant to the current events, as nearly everyone witnesses the actions of this group, once known as the "Information Dominance Corps". ~anon 24.214.70.31 22:46, 26 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Oppose I object to this, because it is too vaguely worded. How do you even define a "fake Wikipedia article"? --Spafky (talk) 12:31, 1 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Spafky: "Fake Wikipedia" is a descriptor I made up on the spot when trying to explain why these articles shared a common problem: quotes all so POV they ended up sounding like undisputed facts about each topic. I spent many hours trimming and balancing other articles created by the LibraryClerk191 sockpuppets, but these seemed to me topics where it would be hard to find notable "quotable" quotes.

It's been a couple of months since the article's subject was changed and no quotes. If quotes can be found and added then that would help. Possibly a disambiguation needed. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 13:45, 31 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

    @1234qwer1234qwer4, I am glad you have joined the discussion. I hope I can ask you a couple of questions without being accused of of being incivil:
    • Do you recall ever adding quotes to any article on WQ?, if so can you provide a few examples of your work.
    • Do you recall improving any health related articles on WQ?, ditto.
    I am asking because I don't have a good memory, but do not recall seeing any of your content building work on WQ. I am also wondering about your comment below:
    there is no merit in attempting that on things that "just simply may not belong here"
    Is it your opinion that this article simply does not belong on WQ, and if so why do you believe this? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 21:10, 17 June 2022 (UTC) In regards to "I tried and couldn't find any": Why are you so certain that none of the 251 inline references of the enwp article have any quotable quotes? Ottawahitech (talk) 21:22, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    (edit conflict) I am not accusing you of being incivil, but I have already said below: VfD is about discussing articles, not editors. I do not see how these questions contribute to the discussion (with the rest of the community, keep in mind, not just the nominator or any other arbitrary user specifically) on whether or not the quotes on this page meet Wikiquote's inclusion standards? 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 21:27, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @1234qwer1234qwer4, Why won't you answer questions such as
    • "Why are you so certain that none of the 251 inline references of the enwp article have any quotable quotes?"
    or
    • "Is it your opinion that this article simply does not belong on WQ?"
    This has nothing to do with commenting on editors and everything to do with the rationale you used in nominating this article for deletion. Ottawahitech (talk) 02:29, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Yes, you added the first of these question in the edit I conflicted with and I did not bother to look what it was about at that moment, sorry. The condition of being listed at Wikipedia is somewhat arbitrary, but discussing whether or not there are quotable quotes on the topic at hand is the point of this venue. I have not found any; however, so far nobody of the other participants could provide any such material either. If you can, great, but so far this article does not contain any quotes worthy of inclusion, and deleting it would not keep editors off from recreating it with appropriate quotes.
As for the second question, you may or may not know that Wikiquote:Votes for deletion "discusses whether a page should be deleted or not", so you can assume that anybody nominating a page for deletion here does indeed opine "that this article simply does not belong on WQ". The reasons for that opinion are generally stated in the nomination, so maybe you could try looking there. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 05:14, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • @Ottawahitech: By asking if an editor has ever added a quote on a platform exclusively for quotes is slightly offensive. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 02:52, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Delete a recent news topic that has so far attracted no notable quotable quotes. HouseOfChange (talk) 08:52, 3 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Ottawahitech:, I would read through Wikiquote:Quotability. The comparison between the two page's pageviews doesn't really make sense. The statement that editors who, like you, are "destroying" is uncivil and makes me think of what a new user with no experience would say, not what one who has done genuinely good work, like you, would say. Not everything warrants a Wikiquote page; that doesn't mean there's nowhere the page would be useful, it just simply may not belong here. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 16:45, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Rubbish computer, I would rather not debate who is more uncivil/incivil. I would rather lay out some simple arithmetic that everyone can agree with:
  • seven non-IP users have contributed to this deletion discussion
  • four non-IP users and three IP users contributed to the actual article that is being nominated for deletion in this discussion
  • on 21 May 2022 the article was created by an IP user, it was tagged as a Proposed deletion within 3 hours
    • Proposed deletions (PRODs) are described in a WQ-Policy namely: Wikiquote:Proposed deletion
      • According to this policy: "This process should only be used for articles that are uncontroversial deletion candidates that obviously do not belong in the Wikiquote quote compendium
    • On 31 May 2022 I removed the PROD tag, and had my action promptly reverted with a stern please wait for an admin edit summary.
      • I spent additional time on the tagger's user-talkpage to remind them that anyone is free to remove PROD-tags, no need for admin permission. In total this used up 6 more edits that contributed zero improvement to the article, and used up time I would have preferred to use adding content to our compendium of quotes.
    • On June 1 I removed the PROD tag for the second time, just to have the original tagger replace it with a Votes for deletion (VFD) tag
Summary: Only two non-IP users, out of a total 11, attempted to improve the article. There were 17+6+12=35 corresponding edits, but only 6 edits were an attempt to improve the article. Ottawahitech (talk) 15:16, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, Ottawahitech, but please follow w:WP:CIVIL. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 15:22, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I can't see how bringing up the edits to the page is relevant in this discussion. VfD is about discussing articles, not editors. I have already apologised for reverting your removal of the PROD tag on my talk page, so I am not sure what point you are trying to make about it now, neither do I see what is objectively wrong with "replac[ing] it with a Votes for deletion (VFD) tag", which means nothing but starting a discussion after your removal made clear that the article would not be an "uncontroversial deletion candidate" as required by PROD. As for "attempt[s] to improve the article", I believe @Rubbish computer's comment you were replying to already explained that there is no merit in attempting that on things that "just simply may not belong here" – and a web search shows that there are no quotes meeting the criteria of this project on this topic at the moment. (Feel free to prove that wrong though, but do remember Wikiquote:Quotability.) 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 19:34, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Rubbish computer, Re: "The comparison between the two page's pageviews doesn't really make sense."
It makes perfect sense to me. The comparison between pageviews of the page nominated for deletion and the page where the deletion is being debated clearly shows that a lot of energy is being diverted away from improving the article in question. AND, unfortunately, it appears this trend will accelerate in the next days.
I am saying this with a heavy heart, but after reading a seemingly unrelated discussion regarding the use of paywalled sources on WQ, it appears I am not the only person around who feels WQ is in trouble. The person who conveyed this information is, unlike most of the participants on this deletion board, someone who has contributed A LOT of content to WQ, but rarely participates in discussion. I am not the most eloquent person around, and I do not enjoy participating in Dramah boards. The only reason I am here is my gut feeling that deletion does not fix the important issues we face trying to build this "compendium of quotes". All this does is take away attention from the real issues that we must confront.
IMIO we should be drawing new participants into more productive pursuits and away from endless discussion. People without experience in building content should not be making decisions for the rest. YMMV. Ottawahitech (talk) 14:09, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not interested in taking this conversation any further. I voted Delete based on Wikiquote:Quotability, the article doesn't meet it, that's literally it. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 18:21, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Keep AntisocialRyan (talk) 14:04, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep Wikiquote:Quotability is a guideline that describes what good quotes are, it does not tell us when articles should be deleted. Wikiquote: Deletion policy is where we should be looking to see if this article should be kept or deleted, and it is clear that the rationale for deletion that has been used in this deletion discussion cannot be used when one follows official policy.
The policy states quite clearly that articles which are capable of meeting inclusion criteria should not be deleted. The key word is capable. In other words, articles which currently do not meet inclusion criteria, but are capable of meeting this criteria in future, should be kept. Since WQ has dozens of similar articles (see: Category:Diseases and disorders), I don't see how anyone can convince us that an article about this particular disease is not capable of meeting WQ criteria.

This article in its current form is completely non-neutral. There are several quotes but they're all taken from a single Facebook post. The article creator was also globally locked. I would propose deleting this page unless reliably sourced quotes can be found and presented neutrally. Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 16:02, 2 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Keep. A few thoughts: yes, this person is notable (and has been reported in the news several times) - and it is likely that more sourced quotes can be found to fill the page.

Ningauble, yes you are probably right - and hopefully that quote can be trimmed down some (and other (better) quotes can be added). I guess I was just focused on the "non-neutral" argument being made. ~ UDScott (talk) 23:27, 8 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

We already have a page for notifying administrators about vandalism: it's called WQ:VIP. Creating a userpage to notify admins still gives an LTA way too much attention, especially since the userpage is likely going to remain after that. And it doesn't even serve as a means of notification: an admin can watchlist VIP, but not all existent and non-existent userpages. ~~~~
