From The Urban Dead Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


This page is for the request of page deletions within the Urban Dead wiki. Due to concerns about loss of data, the ability to delete pages is restricted to system operators. As such, regular users will need to request a deletion from the system operators. For consistency and accountability, system operators also adhere to the guidelines listed here.

Guidelines for Deletion Requests

All Deletion Requests must contain the following information in order to be considered:

  • A link to the page in question. Preferably bolded for visibility. Note that Category and Image links need a colon at the front to turn them into links (ie [[:Category:Category]] and [[:Image:Image.jpg]]).
  • A reason for deletion. This should be short and to the point.
  • A signed datestamp. This can be easily done by adding ~~~~ to the end of your request.

In addition to placing a request on this page, please place the {{delete}} tag on the top of the page that is being recommended for deletion. Please make sure that the original content remains on the page, so that others can judge whether the page is worthy of deletion.

Any deletion request that does not contain these three pieces of information will not be considered, and will be removed by a system operator.

Once the deletion request has been entered, the request shall remain on this page, where it will be voted on for a period of two (2) weeks, as judged by the initial datestamp. At the conclusion of this two weeks, the appropriate action will be taken by a system operator, and at the end of that day the request will be moved into the Archive.

Certain types of pages may be better being scheduled for deletion in order to reduce the amount of red tape and stop this page getting too cluttered. To lodge a request for scheduled deletions, go to UDWiki:Administration/Deletions/Scheduling.

Deletion of pages that match a certain criteria may be better serviced by a request for a Speedy Deletion. Speedy Deletions are for removal of pages that are clearly of no value to the wiki, and do not incur the two week voting requirement. Speedy Deletion requests can be lodged at UDWiki:Administration/Speedy Deletions.

Speedy Deletion Eligibility

To be eligible for a Speedy Deletion Request, the page must fall under at least one of the following criteria:

  1. No Content: The page contains no more than a line or two of content that cannot clearly be expanded, consists of random or incoherent content, or is duplicated elsewhere to no purpose.
  2. Off-Topic: The page is a clearly off-topic page.
  3. Unused Redirect: The page is an unused or underused (ie, only 1-2 pages using the link) redirect.
  4. Empty Category: The page is a Category page that has no entries within it.
  5. Missed Talk Page: The page is a Talk: Page from a previous deletion request that has not been deleted with the request (please note the relevant deletion request if this is so)
    As of 19 May 2010, Crit 5 is now a scheduled deletion.
  6. Deletion Workaround: The page is a duplicate of a page that has been deleted from a previous deletion request (please note the relevant deletion request if this is so). A page that fits this criterion is immediately qualified for deletion without requiring it be nominated on the 'Speedy Deletions' page. Recreating a page that fits this criterion will get you a polite message to stop doing so. Any further infractions of this nature will qualify as vandalism and will be treated as such. Note that criterion 6 does not apply when the page has been restored through Undeletions.
  7. Author Edit Only: The page has been requested for speedy deletion by the original author, and has been edited only by its author. Note that edits by adbots or vandals and reverts caused by them do not count.
  8. User Page: The page is a User subpage that has been requested for speedy deletion by the original author.
  9. Personal Page (Prefix Rule): The page is named after a user without the "User:" or "Journal:" prefixes and its content has been moved to the appropriate User or Journal page. Includes pages that should be User subpages, ie. in-game characters.
    As of 2011, August 29, Crit 9 is now a scheduled deletion.
  10. Unused Template: The page is a template that has existed for at least one week and is currently unused within the wiki.
  11. Non-existent User Page: The page is a User: page for a user that doesn't exist, and any content on the page has been moved to the appropriate User: or Journal: page.
    As of 20 June 2009, Crit 11 is now a scheduled deletion.
  12. Defunct group page: The page is a non-historical group page, it is over two months old, it has not had an update in a month, and is not on the stats page. Such pages will remain in the queue for 5 days to determine their defunct status has been correctly identified. Due to the large number of pages that fit into this criterion, please {{speedydelete12}} on the pages to ensure that they are categorized differently from normal speedy deletion requests.
    As of 2007, September 16, this is no longer a valid criterion.
  13. Missed sub-page: The page is a sub-page from a previous deletion request that has not been deleted with the request, and that serves no individual purpose (please note the relevant deletion request).

A page may also fall under a scheduled deletion and should be posted here if it is missed by the sysops.

Guidelines for Voting on Deletion Requests

  • One vote per user.
  • Voting should take place underneath the request, and each vote should be started with a # with no empty lines inbetween votes.
  • There are four vote types:
    • Delete. For agreement with the deletion request
    • Merge. For indication that the content on the page should be merged with another page (includes an implicit Delete).
    • Speedy Delete. For indication that the page meets one of the Speedy Deletions Criteria (includes an implicit Delete).
    • Keep. For disagreement with the deletion request.
  • The specific vote keyword should be bolded within the lodged vote. Any relevant comments are also allowed, but these should not be bolded.
  • At least one Delete vote must be entered by the deadline in order for a page to be deleted. System operators may not use their own vote after the deadline to delete a page.
  • If more Delete votes are entered than Keep votes, the page will be deleted. In any other circumstance, the page is kept.
  • If 3 Speedy Deletes are lodged, and there are no Keep Votes, the page will be deleted as per Speedy Deletions.

    Just because something (a page) exists doesn't mean it has rights. Said pages serve no purpose whatsoever, and also a crit 2. Moving it to userspace is an option for me aswell. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 23:49, 2 October 2010 (BST)
    Group page for a group. Hence purpose. Has been stated already. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 23:51, 2 October 2010 (BST)
    Group is a joke, and not real. Hence no purpose. Has been stated already.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 00:08, 3 October 2010 (BST)
    Can you point to profiles in-game of people in this group? Otherwise, it looks to me like a fake group page that's entirely off-topic. Aichon 01:28, 3 October 2010 (BST)

    Yes. Recruitment messages have gone out on 10 radio channels, hundreds of pages link to it, there are plans for a recruitment add, and maybe even a forum. Join today! --VVV RPGMBCWS 02:09, 3 October 2010 (BST)

Moved from A/SD

I dont know whether this is Crit. 7 or not, but page history reads: "13:28, 23 September 2010 Wesker (Talk | contribs) (Actually, Umbrella is dead.)" Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 09:35, 23 September 2010 (BST)

If you look at the edit history, its been edited by several people, so doesnt qualify under the author edit only rule.--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:45, 23 September 2010 (BST)
Seriously mate, I think this is best served at Deletions rather than just dismissing it outright. It's been blanked and not reverted because Whesker is "enough of a leader" of the group to not have his edits contested, and usually when that happens but the ops don't class it as crit 7, we send to deletions. Thoughts? -- LEMON #1 11:35, 23 September 2010 (BST)
  1. Delete - Close enough to crit 7 by proxy that it should be deleted, though we can't do it as a scheduled due to the exact circumstances. Aichon 17:24, 23 September 2010 (BST)
  2. Delete. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 17:26, 23 September 2010 (BST)

  4. Delete - It would be a shame to lose such a pretty page, but if the group wants it gone, they can. I left a message on their talk page to make sure, though. --VVV RPGMBCWS 23:46, 23 September 2010 (BST)

Recent Actions


I don't know about you, but quite frankly I think this page is offensive. Maybe this is the wrong place to report this, but I don't think this sort of Content that offends people should be allowed on our Wiki... Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 08:45, 29 September 2010 (BST)

It should be noted that the content has been manually moved by the user to Your Mother. When I finish what I'm doing, I'll delete that as a result of this vote, as it's essentially the page that was voted on below.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:14, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  1. move - it isn't offensive, but it is bad. i suggest, if it isn't a group, move to user's userspace. -- LEMON #1 08:52, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  2. Move - offensive? For reals? Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 09:21, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Yes I think It's downright offensive. Here's some Highlights:
    • "Your mum, in a rare sighting out of whoring"
    • "Your Mom (born roughly twelve years before you and eleven before her mom)"
    • "Your mother followed suit (Slut!)."
    • "After marrying your dad directly following getting totally wasted after her nightclub job, your mom had you and your brother."
    • "your mom progressed to become dumber, followed by massive weight gain."
    —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dezonus (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.
    If offensive I can tone it down. It was meant as a Satire, and isn't finished. I was going to include a long list of yomomma jokes (and all info before that is to be explained in them). Nobody is supposed to take offence. It's a joke. It's not pointed at any specific person, either. --Officer Mead Sheaffer 17:20, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Scratch that. This isn't Uncyclopedia, I'm deleting this and re-making it. --Officer Mead Sheaffer 17:40, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    I didn't really find the yo mamma stuff very offensive but the Black Guy eating fried chicken comments was uncalled for. I see the page has been blanked now. --~Vsig.png 17:41, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Dezonus, we can read it as well as you can. No need to quote it here. Also, please format your comments so that they don't break the voting. Aichon 17:59, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    I hate to cause a blamestorm here but it really kind of appears that Officer Mead Sheaffer created an intentionally offensive page so that he had an excuse to use his "classy disapproval" pseudo-template. I guess that's just speculative but c'mon...really? --~Vsig.png 18:05, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Actually I made that template straight off the bat, when the page was viewed before it was finished and finessed with. The page was intentionally meant to be offensive to everyone, but not to any specific person. It had a lot of offensive content. I humbly apologize however, due to I created it with the mindset of an Uncyclopedian, something that cost me a bit of credibility on this wiki for humor. Therefore I'm re-making the article. --Officer Mead Sheaffer 18:13, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  3. Speedy Delete - It's Crit 2 since none of the content is relevant. This isn't a personal blog. Pages in the main namespace are supposed to have value to the regular UD player, meaning that they should either be about the game, a group, or something else of general interest. "Your momma" jokes are not pertinent, and either belong in personal namespaces or not on the wiki at all. Aichon 17:59, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  4. Speedy Delete - As Aichon --~Vsig.png 18:06, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  5. Speedy - I'll get this some time within the hour if nobody objects.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 19:48, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  6. Move and Keep I had something similar happen to me, where my page was speedied before I had even a chance to respond. I later had to undelete and move it to my userpage. While technically a crit 2, and thus eligible for Speedy, I'd prefer a precedent where we automatically move that stuff to the userpage, or at the very least give author time to save it. I guess this nullifies the Speedy itself, but I can't say I dig crit 2. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 20:29, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Also the entire discussion about this being offensive or not is irrelevant. It also makes want to scream PURITAN!1! I have seen far worse. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 20:32, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Sorted.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 23:36, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Which explains why he recreated it again in the main space despite knowing full weel about namespaces.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:55, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Sorry, how do my words explain that?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 21:07, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    =P Poor phrasing on my part. What I mean to say is, if he intended to have it as a userspace article within his space, such as in your case, he would have put it in his namespace either on the first time he made it or when he remade it after this deletion reuqest began.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:12, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    Then it should be explained to him that off-topic content should not be in the main-space. Crit 2 is true, I just don't like it's being used for speedies. Just delete the main stuff, move to his own space and give a polite warning not to do this again.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 21:26, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    I would, but I'm not going to countermand a vote on Deletions, because I'm pretty sure that's against protocol (as in the case of that ridiculous scheduled deletion below).--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:31, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    It was explained to him on his talk page, but he deleted that message. Check the history if you don't believe. Also, it was mentioned here on speedy deletions, and he's been a part of the discussion. --~Vsig.png 21:32, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    I know, I'd just what I would have done if this wiki was authoritarian dictatorship, and I were it's leader, or if my name was Kevan.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 21:38, 29 September 2010 (BST)
    We need Grim back. He'd do it, and nobody would blink an eye.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:39, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  7. Keep but Move - This is no more offensive than the time Mis said my mom was doing it wrong, not that offensiveness has anything at all to do with whether we should allow a page to live. Even though it's unfunny. --VVV RPGMBCWS 23:25, 29 September 2010 (BST)
  8. Speedy --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:45, 29 September 2010 (BST)

Bunch of unused Images

Sorting through Uncategorised images, found a lot of similar ones to User:Dracula's name, Most unused. I asked him about it,
"I am only using those which are linked either to my user page, or The Order of Dracula page. The others can be deleted." (Copied from User talk:Dracula)

Suggesting that the following be deleted:

    Letter of the law, it wouldn't be since the author did not leave a note on a sysop's talk, just his own talk in response to a question from someone who is not a sysop.
