UESPWiki:Deletion Review


The deletion review is a discussion board for determining whether a page should be deleted or not. Articles are here for seven days, and depending on a rough consensus of the community, pages are then merged, redirected, kept, renamed, userfied, or deleted. Keep in mind that this is also the most complicated processes, and articles that are generally uncontroversial should be proposed on one of the two simpler processes: UESPWiki:Proposed Deletion or UESPWiki:Speedy Deletion.

The candidates for deletion can be found at Category:Deletion Review, and the active discussions about them can be found on the bottom of this page.

Voting on DiscussionsEdit

Prior to giving your opinion on a discussion, please review the Deletion Review etiquette described below:

  • The debates held here are not concluded by plebiscite or poll. You should state your recommendations regarding the course of action to be taken and support them with an argument.
  • Always review the entire article prior to casting your vote, and do not rely solely on the points the nominator for deletion has brought forth.
  • Review the earlier comments and recommendations, as they contain relevant arguments and important information.
  • Begin your comments or recommendations on a new bulleted line, and sign them with four tildes (~~~~). When responding to another editor, place your comments below theirs and indent as necessary.
  • Editors should indicate their recommended course of action at the beginning of their statement and in bold text. For example, Keep or Delete. The word in bold should clearly state what your intentions are so that the administrator reviewing the discussion can quickly determine such. Some examples of words used to indicate a recommended course of action are as follows:
    • Keep – The article should remain undeleted.
    • Delete – That article should be deleted.
    • Neutral – You do not wish to vote at this time, but are simply giving input on the discussion.
    • Userfy – Instead of deletion, you wish for the page to be moved as a sub page to the creator's user page. (ex. User:Example/Userfied_Page)
    • Redirect – The page should be replaced by a redirect to another page.
    • Merge and redirect – All useful content should be moved onto another page, and the page should be turned into a redirect.
  • State whether or not you are one of the primary authors of the article, or if you created the original article.
  • Make only one recommendation to a discussion. If you change your mind at a later time, modify your original recommendation rather than adding a new one. The preferred method of doing this is to strike through your original comments using <s> and </s> tags, signature included, and adding your new opinion immediately afterwards. (ex. Keep Delete)
