Some stubby stuff

There's a massive ton of stuff we could probably tidy up but most are group subpages which seem to be place holders. -- Cheese 17:07, 8 May 2010 (BST)

Just skimmed through and I can already tell you that Carter's Commando is an active group with 17 members according to the stats page, so strike that one for starters.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 18:06, 8 May 2010 (BST)

He said delete all except. Since not deleting would to me mean keeping, I kept it. I'll contact him and if he says it was an abstention, then I'll nuke this thing. Until then...--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 12:29, 23 May 2010 (BST)

Malton Police Department/News Archive

This page is no longer needed, though a local backup has been made anyway. No member of the MPD or DEM uses or wishes to retain this page, so we are asking for its deletion. There are no relevant links to this page. G F J 16:36, 3 May 2010 (BST)

  1. Keep - These little news archives, while written dryly, offer us a great chance to compare historical events in UD as they were recorded from the perspective of different groups. Comparing data from different sources like this can lead to better info, and therefore better wiki articles. For example, reading the news archive I found mention of activity that corresponded to the Battle of Giddings. The MPD is not mentioned in the Battle of Giddings, but perhaps they should be. I linked to the news archive in the talk page, so this is no longer orphaned. Also, this news archive seems to corroborate an accounting by the 2nd Big Bash, which states that survivors in Pitneybank fought well. We need to keep these historical nuggets, not delete them.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 14:15, 4 May 2010 (BST)
    It doesn't matter. Arc it in your own time then, because no-one in the group wants this page and you guys are keeping it against their wishes for your own sakes. -- 01:30, 14 May 2010 (BST)
  2. Delete - I trust that they want it deleted. If not, it can just be undeleted, simple, not much else comes into play imo -- 00:25, 5 May 2010 (BST)
  3. Delete - I'm hit or miss about this one because of the historical information, but DDR's vote convinced me. If there's a porblem, it can always be undeleted, but for now, the group wants to get rid of it, so why not? Also, the information in question was already partly on the page.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 00:59, 5 May 2010 (BST)
  4. Keep - As Giles. If it gets deleted I'll sandbox it anyway, but I'd like it in the main namespace for historical reasons. They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 14:16, 5 May 2010 (BST)

Assassin

I see this article in the exact same vain as the below one, Pistol Ninja. Unnecessary over the top elaborating of a simple action in Urban Dead which can't practically be used over and over. Useless to the community and as a glossaric term IMO. -- 07:34, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  1. Delete -- 07:34, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  2. Delete - Being an assassin only works against zombies instead of survivors because of the level and how many HP a survivor has, not to mention how many surviving player are in each building --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 08:40, 1 May 2010 (BST)

Pistol Ninja

Another candidate for the Glossary-cleanup project, this time because the idea of Pistol Ninja is, quite frankly, fucking stupid, and unlinked to boot (most of the links to this page a part of the glossary cleanup). This shit needs to be nuked!

Seriously, now I think about it, why shouldn't this just redirect to Trenchcoater? ;D -- 07:25, 1 May 2010 (BST)

  8. keep why exactly does it need to go? Admittedly everything but the title is a bit pointless but that should not equal deletion. --Honestmistake 03:09, 2 May 2010 (BST)
    If everything but the title is pointless then feasibly I could remove everything on that page but the title and you wouldn't have a problem with that? Because then it would fit under Crit 1 and therefore would equal deletion. -- 03:33, 2 May 2010 (BST)

The Mayor's Office

This is an oldie (3 years) which doesn't really elaborate from its mother-article Mayor of Malton all that much... It's uncategorised, only linked by similarly bad page (and should-be-redirect) Mayor, and doesn't really have... Anything. Merging to Mayor of Malton is a viable option. I guess. But really, well, it's not going to be touched by Murray or Bull so... it's useless. -- 07:19, 1 May 2010 (BST)

  2. Weak Keep - How else will Murbulskond administer our fair city? --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 08:40, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  3. Delete. Without major changes since at least 2007, it's unlikely this page is going to evolve into anything useful. At the moment, its content doesn't strike me as valuable. G F J 11:04, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  4. Delete - It looks like someone was going to make an article here, but they never got around to it. It's basically a forgotten stub of a topic that isn't being used at all. I was all ready to vote keep, because I love little nuggets of flavor strewn about the wiki, but then I read the page and saw that there really isn't anything here.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 12:26, 1 May 2010 (BST)

Mayor

This page is silly for a couple of reasons. Nothing on this page is worth keeping except the accurate bit which describes an already extensively-written history from the page Mayor of Malton. Furthermore, the rest of the 'history' is simply written from the point of view of one guy who decided to just go "I'm going to declare myself mayor of malton!" and do as little as the originals did, despite the latter being so quick to criticise the event of Mayor of Malton which was only done for fun/roleplaying. This page could easily be a redirect to Mayor of Malton imo, I'll let you guys decide. -- 07:19, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  1. Delete or make redirect. -- 07:19, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  2. Strong Keep - Mayor of Malton is nothing but the election page, it tells us nothing of how Malton used to be governed. This is a very important piece of fanfiction, and I am willing to expand it, by adding past mayors (pre-outbreak) and various other info. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 08:40, 1 May 2010 (BST)
  3. Delete - Same as my reasoning for "Mayor of Malton".--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 12:26, 1 May 2010 (BST)

Karlsbad

This disambiguation appears to be useless, the only internal link that works is pointing to the user page of someone who has not been active since 2007, the rest of the entries are links to Wikipedia. G F J 16:26, 9 May 2010 (BST)

  1. 'Keep': It's funny. It seems that Karlsbad made disambiguation page for comedic purposes, since usually, the name of a user is just a redirect to that user page. I think we should keep that humor.--ShadowScope'the true enemy' 06:08, 10 May 2010 (BST)
    "usually the name of a user is just a redirect to that user page". No it isn't all redirects to user pages are deleted on sight. -- 08:27, 10 May 2010 (BST)

Department of Emergency Management/Malton Central Intelligence/Recruitment

This page is no longer needed and should be deleted. A backup of its code (which had been taken from here) has already been made. There are no relevant links to this page. Thanks, G F J 19:21, 24 April 2010 (BST)

  1. Delete - Also worth noting that the group, Malton_Central_Intelligence, has been listed as inactive since October 2009, so they probably don't need their recruitment page anymore.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 12:32, 25 April 2010 (BST)

Malton Police Department/sandbox

This page is no longer needed. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to qualify for A/SD, so I'm putting it here. G F J 18:24, 18 April 2010 (BST)

  1. Keep - Disc space = cheap! --Sonny Corleone DORIS I jizzed in my pants pr0n 05:44, 19 April 2010 (BST)
  2. KeepDelete - Well, it's a group sandbox. Do we really know that it is no longer needed? If that can be reasonably shown to be true I'll change my vote.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 12:36, 19 April 2010 (BST)
    Yes, it's no longer needed. As it's a DEM/MPD subpage, the organization to decide whether it's still needed is the DEM/MPD, would you agree with that? I'm the current DEM chairman (feel free to contact us on Brainstock if you wish to verify), so yes, I do have the ability to find out whether we still need it or not, and we don't. But either way, here's why: The content on that page is nothing but an outdated copy of MPD, the most important change had been the inclusion of Template:MPDnavbar. If at all, that template is what is worthwhile to preserve. As deleting the sandbox does not delete the template, no valuable content is lost. Apart from the template, no complex and valuable changes had been made. Would that convince you? G F J 12:52, 19 April 2010 (BST)
    Why not just blank the page? Or ask it to be moved to DEM/Sandbox or similar? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 16:00, 19 April 2010 (BST)
    If this does not pass, it might be what we'll do - but why? If a page is no longer needed and does not contain content that might be valuable in the future, why should it be kept instead of getting deleted? Instead of having x unused DEM subpages flying around, I'd rather have a "clean" wiki presence consisting only of what is used or worthwhile to preserve (an example for inactive pages definitely worthwhile: MCI - this is quite different from a sandbox). I would think that having a "clean" instead of "messy" wiki presence does in general benefit the UD wiki, for instance decreasing the chance of newbies getting confused with different pages. Yes, it's unlikely that someone would see the sandbox and think that that is the up-to-date MPD page, but it can't be ruled out, I've seen (new) people getting confused with things that are even more obvious. Regards, G F J 16:16, 19 April 2010 (BST)
    Are you trawling the DEM pages completely, or working through in sections, one group at a time? Because we can merge pages, or turn them into redirects. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 16:18, 19 April 2010 (BST)
    Eventually, all DEM pages should be taken a look at. Not just by myself, of course. However, my own time is quite limited, so it would be hard to give any time frame. As to whether anything is done on a per-group basis or just whatever comes to our attention, the second option probably fits better, though we do look at our pages systematically. And yes, merging and redirecting can certainly make sense in some case - where would I go to request a merge of, say, two DEM subpages? I don't seem to find a place for that at UDWiki:Administration? G F J 16:30, 19 April 2010 (BST)
    What we'd probably do is copy everything over to one page and turned the other page into a protected redirect, so it couldn't be undone with out removing the protections. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:43, 19 April 2010 (BST)

Crit 10 AND Crit 1's

These are unused, as well as being crit 1's of the Template:Visited XXXX Mall templates which can be seen on userpages such as these.

These re-qualify as SD candidates because they make juicy Crit 1's. -- 06:16, 17 April 2010 (BST)

  5. Keep - First off, as isc said, they are not duplicates. Look at the difference between Template:Visited Pole Mall and Template:Pole Mall. These templates are part of a "set" of 20 that people can use to show that they visited certain malls, which is silly, but so are most of the templates on this wiki. You've listed 15 of the 20 templates that aren't currently in use, however some of the "set" are. For example Caiger, and Buckley. Users should have the option of using these templates when and if they visit these malls, so that their templates share the same aesthetic. As an alternative to deletion, perhaps these two different template types could have links to each other so people can choose between the large and small versions. Just a thought.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 13:39, 18 April 2010 (BST)
