Incubator:Requests for deletions

Jump to navigation Jump to search


This is an official Incubator policy.
You may edit it, but please discuss major changes on the talk page first.

This page is for nominating test wikis for deletion, or for nominating pages related to the maintenance of the Incubator for deletion. For discussing about the deletion of pages in a specific test wiki, please use the relevant talk pages where the editors of the test wiki are most active in to discuss them (such as the talk page of the test wiki's main page). Pages that should be speedily deleted should be tagged with {{delete}} with a proper reason.

Common reason for deleting pages here on Incubator include:

  • Speedy deletion requests (vandalism, spelling corrections, correcting prefixes etc.)
  • Deletion of a complete test wiki according to the policy's section "Closure or Deletion"
  • If a project is given final approval by the language committee, the test's pages will be imported to the new subdomain wiki. All pages here will be deleted, except the info page.

Requests for deletion[edit source]

Requests for deleting single pages[edit source]

  • Pages that may be subject to speedy deletion:
    • In general, the rules for speedy deletion are the same as listed on Meta.
      • One rule for speedy deletion unique to Incubator is that pages in the wrong language—either with a prefix reflecting an invalid ISO 639 language code, or written in a language different from the one in the prefix—can be deleted.
      • Similarly, pages having an incorrect prefix where a copy with a correct prefix also exists are eligible for speedy deletion. Please include a link to the correctly prefixed page on the deletion template.
    • Speedy deletions may be proposed by putting {{delete}} (and a reason) on the pages that should be deleted and will thereby be added to Category:Maintenance:Delete, where an administrator will decide about them. It is not needed to vote on a speedy deletion. If there are doubts, the administrator reviewing the speedy deletion request will ask the proposer. If you have doubts, but are not an administrator, you are also free to add a remark below the {{delete}} template on the page.
      If the reason you give is because the current name is wrong, somehow (grammar, spelling, etc.), administrators normally assume the content has been moved to a different (better) location. It will help the administrators if you include a link to the moved page in your deletion request.
      Consider turning the wrong spelling into a redirect to the right spelling before asking for deletion. (And please note that if the wrong spelling is likely to be a common misspelling, it may be useful to leave the redirect, both here and once your test is in its own subdomain.)
      If you do not turn the wrong spelling into a redirect, please simply add {{delete}} to the top of the page. Do not blank out the rest of the page.
    • Please remember: pages cannot be speedy-deleted as long as other pages link to them. Please modify all incoming links before requesting speedy deletion; otherwise, simply leave the original page as a redirect. (Note: This rule doesn't always apply to incoming links from discussion pages and similar administrative pages, if the discussion is already settled.)
  • In other cases, you may put a request below.

Requests for test deletions[edit source]

  1. You can propose a deletion of a test language. You may only propose a deletion of a test language which does not have a proposal on Meta or is rejected by the langcom.
    1. You can vote, but it has just a little bit of influence. Arguments are better.
    2. You can propose moving the test to the Incubator Plus.
  2. After 10 days, an administrator will make a decision about deleting the test or not.
  3. If needed, an XML file must be exported (needed means: if the test is not vandalism or nonsense – in general, use common sense)
  4. Remember that this has nothing directly to do with the decision of the language committee (langcom).

Requests for undeletions[edit source]

All requests for deleted pages to be restored can be added below, as well.

Requests[edit source]

Wp/pal[edit source]

The Pahlavi test Wikipedia has been rejected by LangCom because it is an extinct language. That test should be moved to Incubator Plus. --Agusbou2015 (talk) 20:52, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

Wp/ese[edit source]

According to [1], it's not written in the language. If true, we should delete it completely. --MF-W {a, b} 16:31, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Why not migrate it to incubatorplus? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:09, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
Because it's dead since 2008. --MF-W {a, b} 12:30, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Wp/fax[edit source]

Purporting to be a project in xalimego language, but just a bunch of crap with no relation with that language. Unfixable, abandoned since 2016.--DarwIn (talk) 18:29, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Keep: The assertion that the articles are 'crap' are unfounded and not verified by independent credible language experts. Also, the mere fact that it is currently inactive are not grounds for deletion as users do return to make edits over time and this has occurred on many other wikipedia language editions (for example, Oriya wikipedia) --Ernesztina (talk) 01:22, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
- If we would delete incubator projects for non-activity, we probably wouldn't have the newest Wikipedia since it was mostly inactive for 9 years before people got interested in it. I can't say anything about the quality or veracity of the Wp/fax project, so I won't say to keep or delete one way or another right now. -Yupik (talk) 00:15, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Ernesztina: On which source are you basing yourself to say that what is there is not crap? Please read xalimego or otherwise inform yourself about the xalimego lang before making that sort of uninformed - and apparently random - comments.--DarwIn (talk) 00:19, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
The stub was created by an IP in 2010 without any kind of process or approval. Years later, Gato Preto started pilling unrelated crap over it. What would be the point of keeping this here?--DarwIn (talk) 00:57, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
@DarwIn: User:Gato Preto has now been notified of this discussion. We should allow him an opportunity to respond to this discussion. --Ernesztina (talk) 07:31, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Wp/rus[edit source]

I would love to restart a RFD for this project based on a recent rejection of m:Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Traditional Russian, as this test wiki is using an incorrect code, it would be more benefit to migrate this project to Incubatorplus than still keep here. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:08, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Wp/xum[edit source]

This test wiki claims to be in Umbrian (an extinct Italic language related to Latin) but it instead appears to be written in a conlang resembling Hungarian. It should thus be deleted for being a hoax. DraconicDark (talk) 22:59, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Delete this wiki was created by a now globally locked LTA user CasetteTapeMaster, where their contributions were just a bunch of hoax. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:13, 2 January 2021 (UTC)


Deleted. --MF-W {a, b} 14:41, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Wy/ja, Wp/lld and Wp/smn[edit source]

The jawikivoyage, lldwiki and smnwiki are created for several months, not sure if exporting are done or not. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 06:24, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Done for the first two, and what about Wp/smn? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:00, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

All deleted. --MF-W {a, b} 14:38, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Wp/luz, Wp/bqi[edit source]

These projects were started / heavily edited by User:Mogoeilor, who is also behind lrc.wikipedia, now recognized to be a hoax / invented dialect of the language, see m:Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Northern Luri Wikipedia. As I am given to understand they have the same problems, I propose to summarily delete them. --MF-W {a, b} 23:46, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

For active users, the first project also has @Sahh, Bluehamed, and Hamed bahmaei:, for the second @میوند بختیاری, Bardeshir, Ernestoloriati, and Omidmohammadi2021:, no idea for these users. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 04:39, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
Very likely they are socks or meatpuppets Ladsgroup (talk) 19:36, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
@Ladsgroup, Surely they are ducks? If not, then I would love to reqest a SRCU check. Psst the SRCU request already exists --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:10, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

I just got an email from a native luz speaker saying that yes, the text indeed unrecognizable and made-up like the lrc but he's willing to help to actually make this right. Maybe we can delete the current articles and then let it continue? I ask him that what he prefers Ladsgroup (talk) 05:51, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

@Ladsgroup, MF-Warburg: But then, Meta-Wiki requests for both are "verified as eligible", what should we do for both requests? Reject? This RFD doesn't affect both? Or just rollback to "submitted"? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 06:13, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
This should not hinder us. Content written in the wrong language doesn't not affect the eligibility of a project per se. --MF-W {a, b}
Agreed. BTW given the CU result, should we block Sahh and its sock too? Ladsgroup (talk) 23:47, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
Please don't delete Wp/luz/ورگه_اصلی and the ones created by the same author. These are actual luz. Ladsgroup (talk) 15:08, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
@Ladsgroup: Should other Northern Luri and Bakhtiari projects (i.e. Wt/lrc, Wb/lrc, Wn/lrc, Wq/lrc, Wy/lrc and Wt/bqi) be also discussed? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:36, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: Yes please Ladsgroup (talk) 12:19, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Wp/wrw[edit source]

It claims to be a Marwari test(with tocreate status), but the code 'wrw' is for Gugu Warra. --Intolerable situation (talk) 06:56, 10 January 2021(UTC)

Speedy delete, the Marwari test is already existing: Wp/rwr. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:48, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Deleted. NinjaStrikers «» 11:03, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Wp/lvn[edit source]

As Sotiale mentioned, lvn is an invalid code, and I can't see any results from many search enginees about "Anaunic Ladin". --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 07:00, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Deleted. --MF-W {a, b} 11:35, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Wp/sjo/ᠰᡞᠪᡝ ᡥᡝᠷᡤᡝᠨ[edit source]

Empty content. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:21, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

@MiiCii: This page has only some codes that provide nothing useful in my opinion, but it may still keep if you: 1. cleared up it, and restart writting a proper article, or 2. you think that this should be a template, then we may move it to Template: namespace. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:10, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
