Deletion review for Gour Govinda Swami

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Gour Govinda Swami. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. Dāsānudāsa (talk) 12:17, 11 January 2022 (UTC)

Hi again. Following this discussion, it seems other editors agree the best solution would be a REFUND to draft space so I can work on better sourcing the article. Is that something you're open to? Cheers, Dāsānudāsa (talk) 10:45, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
@Dāsānudāsa: Hi, an uninvolved administrator must close the DRV discussion and they will perform the action reflecting consensus. plicit

Nicolás Atanes

hi, someone told me I should contact you to restore Nicolás Atanes. Actually the article was deleted more than 6 months ago, in an AfD discussion. I didn't took place on the discussion firstly because I didn't knew about it. I don't know Nicolás personally, I have heard about Nicolás because he was nominated for the Navarra Television Awards, and I heard him on Cadena SER. He has appeared in RNE, in the Telediario, writes in Diario 16, has met with great politicians (Mariya Gabriel, for example), and has been proposing educational changes in math for a long time. Without biases, and with reputable sources, and surely more things that have gone unnoticed about Nicolás, I believe that his Wikipedia article should be restored, and remain on Wikipedia.-- (talk) 17:25, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

Hi, among the sources you've provided here, only the first two were published after the AFD took place. The first mentions him in passing, while the second only attributes quotes to him and does not amount to significant coverage. You may want to consider going through the Articles for creation process to address the issues brought up at the deletion debate. There, you will receive comments and advice from experienced users who can guide you in crafting an appropriate entry. plicit 00:42, 13 January 2022 (UTC)
Hi Explicit - just a heads up, this is a site-banned sock puppeteer, I've just blocked the IP. Internet cafes are plentiful though, so if you see anything further along these lines, I'd advise just reverting and reporting at SPI (or ping me).

"Dark side of the Moon" listed at Redirects for discussion

Information.svg An editor has identified a potential problem with the redirect Dark side of the Moon and has thus listed it for discussion. This discussion will occur at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2022 January 13#Dark side of the Moon until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. You issued an invitation to "take it to WP:RFD", so I have done that. —⁠ ⁠BarrelProof (talk) 03:48, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

List of Yellowstone episodes

I noticed you deleted Talk:List of Yellowstone episodes. The merge template on the episode articles link there for discussion, so where should the merger be discussed? —Confession0791 talk 11:05, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

@Confession0791: Hi, the discussion should have one centralized location on a talk page of an existing article. Otherwise, as with Talk:List of Yellowstone episodes, it will be eligible for speedy deletion in accordance with the Pages dependent on a non-existent or deleted page criterion. Where exactly that should take place I'll leave up to you. The {{Merge to}} template can be modified to point to a specific talk page and section by using the |discuss= parameter. plicit 11:26, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

RFD question

You just closed this RFD. I just found Mannerbund that was missed in the discussion. Maybe reopen and add this one? Although it has a different target, it had the same one in the past and is just a different variation with diacritics. Or delete it without discussion as the same applies? MB 02:09, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

@MB: Hi, I felt it best to reopen the discussion because of the different redirect targets. I have relisted the discussion at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2022 January 14#Männerbund. plicit 02:17, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

AFD question

Hi again, I just stumbled across something else you were involved with. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Thunder River (ride) was a soft delete and since restored. I found the AFD in the edit history of another article where a link to the deleted article was removed. Now in the restored Thunder River (ride), there is no indication of a previous AFD on the TP. Is this normal? If an AFD does not result in deletion, there is a record on the TP. But here is is lost. MB 05:53, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

@MB: Hm, I think there's a bot somewhere that tags talk pages of recreated articles previously deleted through AFD with the previous 'delete' result, but it seemingly does not deal with pages that were restored. They probably should be tagged with said template. There was a batch of recently undeleted roller coaster-related pages, so they're all likely missing that documentation. I'll try to get a list together and tag them all. plicit 14:01, 14 January 2022 (UTC)
What if the tagging were done as part of the AFD closure before the article was deleted? Wouldn't that handle this in all cases going forward? I have no idea what would be involved in making that happen... MB 14:07, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

Undeleting Lmmnhn pages

Greetings. It is noticeable that dozens of pages created by banned User:Lmmnhn were deleted under ban violation. Is it possible to have a mass un-deletion of those pages, considering their role in the topic of Hong Kong elections, and that such articles are believed not to be disruptive to the Wikipedia community. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks and kind regards. ~~ J. Dann 06:06, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

@Cypp0847: Hi, policy would not allow such restorations. If you'd like, I can give you a copy of the content if you'd make a list of the affected pages. plicit 02:08, 16 January 2022 (UTC)
It would be gratifying if copies could be obtained. For the list of affected pages please have a check over here. Thanks. ~~ J. Dann 13:51, 16 January 2022 (UTC)
@Cypp0847: I have copied the contents and have linked them below, which will be available on for one month before expiring. There's a limit of ten pastes per day, so I will complete the remaining nine tomorrow.
Most of the other entries on your subpage were redirect pages and did not contain any article content. plicit 14:26, 16 January 2022 (UTC)

File:Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor) by Robert Palmer UK and European artwork.jpg

Hey again. I would like to replace the JPEG version with PNG one. I'm contacting you; you closed an FFD discussion involving this image in 2017. Is contacting first necessary, and must I do the same for other JPEG images that have been listed previously at FFD? --George Ho (talk) 01:09, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

@George Ho: Hi, there is no requirement to contact the closing admin in such cases. For transparency's sake, please copy the {{Oldffdfull}} result from the file's talk page to the newly uploaded file's talk page. plicit 01:13, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Request restoration of a page deleted Nicholas Caprio

Forgive me if this is not the appropriate place to contact you I am clearly a novice. I have been out of circulation for over a month recovering from COVID-19. I came back to discover a page that I edit had been deleted. Also that I had been accused of a conflict of interest editing. I deny the accusation of having a conflict of interest in my editing of the ghost hunters page since every edit I made can be factually supported by documentation. I feel the user who accused me of a conflict of interest then, in a punitive measure, nominated the page I contributed to for deletion as a form of retribution. Unfortunately, I was incapacitated and only came to discover this After the Unfortunately I was incapacitated and only became aware after the resulting deletion. I am here to ask for the page of Nicholas Caprio to be restored. Can you help me? DoctorMegan (talk) 14:40, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

@DoctorMegan: As the page was deleted as a result of the deletion discussion, I can not unilaterally undelete the page. You may want to try creating going through the Articles for creation process to address the issues brought up at the deletion debate. plicit 02:06, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

Again, I feel the action was punitive. I was unfortunately incapacitated with Covid and subsequent recovery at the time of the discussion and I was not able to participate. In addition, there were only a couple of comments even after multiple postings and I suspect that those who did respond were "invited to". It is all just very disappointing. Is there a way to at least restore the page and open up the discussion? I feel bad that an incorrect misinterpretation of my actions caused someone to lose their page. I can point to dozens of pages that have less attribution that have not been deleted. Forgive me, I do not mean to sound unappreciative, I am just disappointed and looking for some help from the community. Thank you. DoctorMegan (talk) 04:02, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

@DoctorMegan: Please assume good faith of fellow editors. Baseless accusations of vindictive actions and canvassing constitute personal attacks and can lead to sanctions on your account.
I can offer compromise: restoring the page and moving it into draftspace, which will allow you work on the page and submit it through the Articles for Creation process. Do you find this proposal reasonable? plicit 12:36, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

I apologize, you are correct I should not assume the actions were vindictive, as I pointed out when I was accused, correlation does not imply causation. And I appreciate your compromise, I do find it reasonable. Thank you. DoctorMegan (talk) 14:59, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

@DoctorMegan: The content is now available at Draft:Nicholas Caprio. Please make the necessary edits and follow the instructions on the submission template when you believe it's ready to be reviewed. plicit 00:32, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

An article for Mugen Rao

Hello! Could you please release the following page- Mugen Rao which was protected by you some months before? He(Mugen Rao) deserves a separate article at this time as his Velan film as lead role got released and other three films are in pipeline now. Also he was part of few films in supporting roles before his lead role debut. I will create a page for him with the proper sources and guidelines if you release the protection. ~ Kannan.529 (talk) 08:36, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Undelete page Roger Elkin

This is a concern. Roger Elkin's poetry has achieved 62 (inter)national First Prizes - does Wikipedia list anyone else whose poetry has made a similar achievement?

The Sylvia Plath Award for Poems About Women was an international poetry competition held by the World Order of Writers of Narrative Poems - a USA based poetry writing project.

He is an acknowledged authority on aspects of the poetry of England's former Poet Laureate, Ted Hughes.

He is a highly-respected reviewer of current English poetry, and his reviews appear in important poetry magazines, and on websites.

His links with the editor Howard Sergeant is well documented. See the Howard Sergeant archive at Hull University, England where mention is made (among other aspects concerning poetry writing and publication) to him being the First Recipient of the Howard Sergeant Award for Services to Poetry. The significance of this lies with the important position that Howard Sergeant's quarterly poetry magazine "Outposts" held.

Roger Elkin is a highly respected Poetry Editor, and critic. Various websites acknowledge this. He regularly is asked to adjudicate Poetry Competitions, both for single poems and also full collections.

The ISBN links will indicate a wide band of published volumes of poetry. Compare this with other late 20th century poets. Not many currently-writing English poets have 13 collections published and critically-supported. His most recent collection, The Leading Question, was shortlisted for the 2021 Wales Poetry Award.

Other supporting factors, both visually and verbally, can be accessed by a trawl of current websites.

Redirection of Pawandeep Rajan

Hello sir/Madam, Pawandeep Rajan is a notable musician and deserves an seperate article to his name.

File:Police Tent Splendour 2017.jpg

Hi Explicit. Would you mind taking a look at File:Police Tent Splendour 2017.jpg? A file with the same name was previously deleted by you on Janaury 2 per WP:F5. It appears that the file is intended for use in Strip Searches in New South Wales, which may be OK; however, this same editor who uploaded the file has also tried to create a couple of similar articles (Draft:Issues Relating to the Use of Drug Detection Dogs in New South Wales and Draft:New South Wales Police Force Strip Search Scandal (List of Reported Incidents)) which seem to have been draftified for various reasons. Given all of the file deletion notifications on this editor's user talk page, maybe it would be better for them to get an article created via AFC first and then worry about adding non-free images to it. Any opinions on this? -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:29, 21 January 2022 (UTC)



It's true that redirects are not governed by notability, but if there is no article (because of the person lacks notability), then the redirect is superfluous. These are people who have been removed from the now-renamed list article because they shouldn't have been there in the first place. -- Valjean (talk) 00:08, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

@Valjean: While that may be true, it does not change the fact that these pages do not meet any of the speedy deletion criteria. These types of redirects are regularly discussed at WP:RFD, and that is where they should be nominated for deletion. plicit 00:12, 22 January 2022 (UTC)
Okay. I'll bring it up there. -- Valjean (talk) 00:14, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello, Explicit,

I don't know if you noticed but we had a higher than average number of drafts expiring during the month of January, due mostly to an AfC July 2021 Backlog Drive that occurred last summer. By the end of July, AfC reviewers had totally caught up with their backlog of drafts to review so I think going forward into February, we'll have fewer drafts appearing on SDZeroBot's daily list. Since you also do a lot of work with expiring drafts, I thought I'd just pass that observation along to you. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 00:33, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Draft:Vontae Diggs

Hello, dear Explicit,

I'm not sure why you left a snarky message in your restoration of this page, there were no recent edits to this draft since July 25, 2021, just look at the page history. I'm sure FA would eventually ask for the draft to be restored at WP:REFUND but I'm not sure what caused your remark and page restoration. We are all working together here on this project, I see no need not to be civil to each other. We may occasionally get in each other's way but we both want to improve this encyclopedia. We are all just human beings trying to help out on a volunteer, community project. Have a good day. Liz Read! Talk! 03:36, 26 January 2022 (UTC)

I see nothing intimidating about this message so no need to take me to a noticeboard again. Liz Read! Talk! 03:37, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
To my recollection, this is the third instance you have deleted a page due to your unwillingness to refresh a page before deleting it despite repeated requests to do so. It first occurred with User talk:Liz#File:Chanchhaya.jpg, then at Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion/Archive 369#Draft:CodeMiko, and now once again. Last minute edits always occur and it doesn't take much effort to check again, especially as you seemingly load the page far in advanced, anywhere from eight minutes ahead based on File:Chanchhaya.jpg to 13 hours ahead based on Draft:CodeMiko. I edited the draft as I'm trying to avoid deleting FloridaArmy's drafts as they request restoration each and every single time anyway.
And you can keep your antagonizing comments to yourself, that last bit was entirely unnecessary. plicit 03:57, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
