Undeletion[edit]

Wikimedia Commons logo Add a new entry

Pages and books can be deleted by administrators. These decisions are generally backed by consensus from a discussion on this page under the deletion section. No process is perfect, and as such, pages or books can be nominated for undeletion in this section. The following is the procedure:

  1. Locate the page entry in the deletion log or the archived discussion. Some deleted pages have been speedily deleted without discussion.
  2. Review the Wikibooks:Deletion policy and Wikibooks:Media. If you can build a fair case on something which wasn't considered before, you can raise the issue here.
  3. Please add new nominations at the bottom of the section. Include a link to the archived discussion (or deletion log if there was none) and your rationale for why the page should be undeleted. If the community agrees, the page will be restored.

If you wish to view a deleted module or media file, list it here and explain why. An administrator will provide the deleted module to you in some form - either by quoting it in full, emailing it to you, or temporarily undeleting it. If you feel that an administrator is routinely deleting modules prematurely, or otherwise abusing their tools, please discuss the matter on the user's talk page, or at Administrative Assistance.

Deletion[edit]

Wikimedia Commons logo Add a new entry

Pages that qualify for speedy deletion do not require discussion. This section is for discussing whether something belongs on Wikibooks or not for all other cases. Please give a reason and be prepared to defend it. Consensus is measured based on the strength of arguments not on numbers. Anyone can participate and everyone is encouraged to do so.

Please add a new request for deletion at the bottom of this section with a link to the page or book in the heading and a justification. Also place the {{rfd}} template at the top of the page you want deleted. If you are nominating an entire book, {{rfd}} goes on the top-level page, but not subpages. Nominations should cite relevant policy wherever possible.

US History/Vikings[edit]

Erik the Red and Leif Erikson are discussed in the section on European history. Erik's other children, and Snorri Sturluson, seem irrelevant. Pittsburgh Poet (discusscontribs) 22:45, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Are you nominating the whole page, or just two sections for deletion? Normally what to include or not in a book is decided through consensus by the book contributors on the book's or page's discussion page. --darklama 01:41, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

I am nominating the orphaned chapter US History/Vikings under the section Orphans in "Discussion." I'll go to the book's discussion page, then. Thank you. Pittsburgh Poet (discusscontribs) 10:56, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

It's almost 4 years since the last contribution to that page (not sure how active other pages of the book are though) so you could make the edits as you see fit provided you explain your rationale in the Edit Summary. The fact that the information is already included elsewhere in the book seems a good enough reason.--ЗAНИA Flag of Estonia.svgtalk 20:29, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Cookbook:Recipes/Print version 0 to L[edit]

This page is something of an encumbrance to the Cookbook, primarily because it and/or its sister page are listed in hundreds of category of the cookbook.

It and its sister page appear to be a snapshot of certain selected recipes which were part of cookbook as of the day of its creation in 2008. Recipes added after the day of its creation are not automatically added to the page and the page has not been maintained (at all) by either its creator or anyone else.

While it may be nice to peruse, it is dated, incomplete, and HUGE:

  • It is something of a data trap for the unwary user as it takes a while to download that much data, even with a highspeed connection.
  • Its large size make it time consuming to even attempt to edit - It took several minutes of data flying back and forth just to add the {{rfd}} tag.
  1. Delete - Crashes my browser after freezing the computer for a minute or so. Outdated. This vote also applies to the nomination below.--ЗAНИA Flag of the Isle of Mann.svgtalk 14:19, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
