Wiktionary:Requests for deletion

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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:

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

Unitarian Universalism[change]

Not particularly notable enough for an entry, unnecessary. Hiàn (talk) 20:25, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Delete - Definitely not notable and unnecessary. Pkbwcgs (talk) 13:44, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

For the same reason as well, I am also going to nominate these following pages for deletion:

Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 16:37, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

All these entries are also unnecessary:

Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:28, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

support nominated entry by Hiàn. oppose Pkbcwgs's nominations (that is, keep them). Tyler de Noche (talk) 03:54, 5 October 2018 (UTC)


Not a particularly notable religion to be on Wiktionary. Pkbwcgs (talk) 16:49, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

Adding the rest of the religions that fall under this rationale, also created by the same user.
Thanks, Hiàn (talk) 22:22, 29 January 2018 (UTC)


Jew exists and it is also a proper noun so it is incorrect that this entry exists. Also, rfd for jews for the same reason. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:40, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
