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.

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.

Please format the heading as == [[PAGE]] == in order to let the bot archive it. If there is a subject box, type [[PAGE]] into the subject box.

  1. Wait December 2016‎ is not so far I suppose. The author could be back at the end of the school year. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 23:00, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
  2. Keep: Scribus: Basic concepts contains a recipe and therefore this is a stub that is not absolutely devoid of meaningful content. Policy: Wikibooks:Deletion: "delete pages with no meaningful content". --Dan Polansky (discusscontribs) 08:43, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Food Safety Guide[edit]

  1. Delete too small to be helpful for six months. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 22:45, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
  2. Keep . There is a subpage, not all red links.--Jusjih (discusscontribs) 03:58, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

LGBT Young Adult Literature/Annie on My Mind[edit]

The page was transwikied from w:en:Annie on My Mind and looks almost similar to the Wikipedia article. Nothing has improved much since, despite some edits, to make the page look less like an encyclopedic article. To rephrase my rationale for deletion, this is Wikibooks, not Wikipedia or a collection of encyclopedic articles. I contacted the one who transwikied the page; he said to go ahead and have it deleted. I could have requested speedy deletion, but I saw a few other editors making contributions, like Thereen and Sandbergja. Therefore, I'm requesting deletion here instead. --George Ho (discusscontribs) 04:28, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Linter SQL RDBMS[edit]

The one-page book has been abandoned eight years ago when its author became inactive, and it's only a bunch of external links.


Per WB:RFD, this page is to be deleted. PokestarFan • Talk • Contributions 00:59, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

"This page has been deleted and protected to prevent re-creation."... so it does not need to be deleted and that likely means it was up for RFD previously -- it actually was deleted in 2006. There's no need for yet another RFD here. --Az1568 (discusscontribs) 23:46, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

CIW Certification[edit]

Linkfarm. PokestarFan • Talk • Contributions 15:01, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

  1. Keep This is not a link farm considering Category:Book:CIW Certification, with CIW Certification/Acronyms or CIW Certification/Study Guides/Site Development Foundations. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 16:47, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Science:_An_Elementary_Teacher’s_Guide/Curriculum Materials and Technology[edit]

This page has little useful information and, as teacher of the class, I do not plan on developing it further. I removed it from our Table of Contents and recommend its deletion. Flattail (discusscontribs) 02:08, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
