Recent deletion proceedings on Scotts Fork, VA

[1]<--What exactly is the current status (and unavoidable immediate future) of this article, and what are the options for seeking a stay of execution? Scotts Fork is admittedly not exactly a newsmaking metropolis (probably much to the relief of local residents), but it's a lot more than just a placeholder in the GNIS. There's not a road map of Amelia County produced in the last 50 years, print or otherwise, on which the name doesn't show up; and the Virginia Dept of Transportation considers it noteworthy enough to list on mileage signs approaching it (one example is shown here): https://www.google.com/maps/@37.3575484,-77.8865709,3a,75y,182.82h,88.71t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sJgx5aeNmXTCxtV6_VNptzA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Surely being small, quiet, and unobtrusive is not a capital crime...

@2603:6081:8004:DD5:6451:2AC4:EB73:1BE: I encourage you to contact the deletion nominator (User talk:Wizzito) to discuss further. I simply closed the discussion and reflected the consensus view of editors, I have no specialist knowledge or understanding of the finer details.

@Willisgm: This article was deleted as a result of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Julie Arliss, where a consensus of editors wanted it to be deleted. Therefore, you must use Deletion Review to overturn the deletion. Daniel (talk) 22:13, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request

Hello Daniel, a page that I created (Letha Weapons) was deleted as speedy deletion g4. Since I can't see the page I wrote or whatever was there previously, it is difficult to know if the pages are "substantially similar" or not. Liz suggested you might be willing to put copies somewhere so that I could see them. Thank you. Polycarpa aurata (talk) 00:17, 22 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deleted article LiveWorkPlay (Again)

I would not expect you to remember this from about 4 months ago, but basically, you ended up helping me with a rather dodgy effort about removing the page LiveWorkPlay and ultimately it was reversed. Well, it has happened again - despite the page having now gone through multiple discussions and vetting. I don't have the skills or experience to understand how these processes are being utilized but I believe it is much the same as what was unearthed on the previous occasion when this occurred. Basically, the page has been removed under false pretences (again). Iamthekanadian (talk) 19:07, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sir you had previously deleted Aashay Mishra as per Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Aashay Mishra Mishra was not WP:N.

Draft

@Daniel: wondering if you know where to find this (deleted) article about Nijat Rahimov (Q67201844). Seems I cannot find any draft here. Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 12:55, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page stalker)Lotje, Daniel seems to be away at the moment, but as far as I can tell: the draftified version of Nijat Rahimov (actor) was moved back and forth from draftspace to mainspace a few times and ultimately deleted again last December with the summary "Edited almost exclusively by sockpuppets and paid editors, moved to Draft space 5 times and I don't think the sources demonstrate notability". Since this was done via the proposed deletion process, you can get it restored at WP:REFUND if you'd like, although I wouldn't recommend it given the history of sockpuppetry and paid editing. Hope this helps. Best regards, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 21:09, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Extraordinary Writ: thank you ever so much for your looking into this. E.Imanoff who put the question forward for undeletion will surely accept my decision to follow your advise. Cheers. Lotje (talk) 05:27, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Restoring Page on Kamla Nath Sharma

Hello Daniel, I have intensively edited the page which was put back as Draft, and reduced it significantly, including the no. of references, by just retaining only the demonstrated and referenced books/material on the subject. All statements that could give semblance of 'publicity' have also been removed. I hope, it would meet the intended purpose. Your kind indulgence requested to restore the page to mainspace or for suggestions, if any. Aaditya.Bahuguna (talk) 14:15, 21 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page watcher) – @Aaditya.Bahuguna, Daniel hasn't been active for several months, so he may not be able to respond to you anytime soon. You can move your draft to mainspace yourself (see these instructions), but I recommend that you submit it through the Articles for Creation process (click here for instructions), in which an experienced volunteer will review your draft and either accept it or provide you with some feedback. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 19:08, 21 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello @Extraordinary WritExtraordinary Writ, I wish to thank you profusely for your indulgence in the absence of Daniel. The article on Kamla Nath Sharma (an engineer, researcher of Vedic Indian literature, and writer of Hindi language) which was put back as a draft article for further editing, has been thoroughly edited, pruned, improved by me over the last several months. I tried to 'move' it the mainspace, but goofed while doing it. May I request you to kindly consider moving the edited article on Kamla Nath Sharma to the main space, as I am not conversant with the process?Regards, Aaditya.Bahuguna (talk) 12:29, 23 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Extraordinary Writ, may I also request you to please 'undo' and revert the wrong change I did of moving the name Kamla Nath Sharma to User Page of Aaditya Bahuguna and moving it back, to go back to status quo of 21 May 2022.
