This page is for deletion requests, for when you think a page should be deleted. See our deletion rules for more information. Old requests can be found here.

Listing for deletion[change]

Start each deletion request with a link to the page (put the page name in brackets: [[like this]] = like this), then with your reason(s) the page should be deleted. Sign and date your deletion request automatically with ~~~~ (four tildes).

Quick deletion[change]

Remember to put {{delete|reason}} at the top of a page for quick deletion requests ("reason" should be replaced by your reason for the request):

This type of deletion request does not need to be listed on this page.

Regular deletion[change]

For regular requests, put {{delreq|reason}} at the top of a page, and list it here under "Deletion requests". That template will add this:

Not all deletion requests are listed here. There are probably more in Category:Deletion requests.

An example entry:

===[[genericwordtobedeleted]]===
This entry is redundant, not notable, and all in all one that doesn't belong in a dictionary.  -- ~~~~
*'''Delete'''.  -- ~~~~

Voting on deletion requests[change]

If you wish to vote on a deletion, give your vote (delete, keep, move, comment, etc.), your reason(s), and your signature as above. One vote per username will be counted on each request. Creating a second account to vote more than once is called creating a sockpuppet. While you may create as many accounts as you want, the same person will not be allowed to vote more than once, even if he or she uses a different account. The same person may comment on a single request as much as he or she wishes.

Quick deletion requests[change]

This section is for pages that should be quickly deleted. Few pages belong in this section. If a page should be quickly deleted, putting {{delete}} at the top of the page is enough. Most pages should be discussed in the next section before being deleted. Only copyright violations, vandalism, etc. should be listed here.

Deletion requests[change]

Pages are deleted if there is no opposition to the request after 7 days

Memory Mining[change]

Memory mining as a phrase doesn't exist. It is not on Wiktionary and there is only one hit for this phrase on Google which doesn't make this a widely-used phrase. Pkbwcgs (talk) 13:15, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Deleted under A4. Thanks for all your help finding these pages. Hiàn (talk) 17:06, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

femcel[change]

No quick deletion criteria applies here - word definitely exists but I can't see enough widespread usage for an entry like this to be within our scope. Hiàn (talk) 04:42, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Close as deleted after no objections. Hiàn (talk) 03:30, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Mahdi'ism and Mahdi'ist[change]

Suggest deleting these two. Questionable suitability for a dictionary (even enwikt does not have these terms). Hiàn (talk) 15:06, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

Agreed.--Brett (talk) 17:58, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
Mahdiism and Mahdiist should also be included in this request. Hiàn (talk) 18:00, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Deleted. --Minorax (talk) 03:31, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

deobesify & deobesification[change]

I'm inclined to delete this two. Deleted on en.wikt as an invented word. --Minorax (talk) 04:49, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Delete Not a real word. Thought about rfd'ing it myself, but preferred not to with my small experience here. Naleksuh (talk) 08:25, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Rickroll[change]

Can't find the use or definition for this. Suggest deleting it. --Minorax (talk) 05:36, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Requires a lot of cleanup, seems like something from urban dictionary. Is deserving of an article (albeit at rickroll and not Rickroll, but I believe it should be Deleted in its current state). Naleksuh (talk) 08:27, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
If this can be fixed, it can be kept IMO. Minorax (talk) 09:19, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
@Brett: Thoughts? Minorax (talk) 09:19, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
@Minorax: Since this is derived from the name "Rick" (a person's name), shouldn't it actually be at the original location (Rickroll)? --IWI (talk) 23:24, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
@ImprovedWikiImprovement: We generally follow en.wikt’s way of spelling and generally, only proper nouns starts with a capital letter (unless I’m misunderstanding something here). Minorax (talk) 03:39, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Cable News Network[change]

I believe that this is out of Wiktionary’s scope and should be deleted. Minorax (talk) 09:17, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

agreed.--Brett (talk) 13:49, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Dervish state, Khatumo‎ & Ayn[change]

Seems to be out of a dictionary's scope. --Minorax (talk) 11:44, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

And yet we have lots of people names, country names, even city names...--Brett (talk) 15:00, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
The former is the only African nation that survived the scramble for Africa. The latter two are its modern incarnations. As such, in the grand scheme of things, they seem to be notable in and of themselves. Cowerfythreedy (talk) 21:12, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

death-grip syndrome[change]

Doesn't really seem appropriate for a dictionary. Not a term you'll find in any dictionary. IWI (chat) 01:40, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Deleted. --Minorax (talk) 04:51, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
