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.

Hello thanks for educating me about how it supposed to work, but my content (page) was speedily deleted and I had no chance to save the content so I can merged it in the existing book in accordance to the rules. Would you let me recover the content in the deleted page below? For a history of the (very short) discussion see User_talk:C.t.chin#copy_.2F_paste. Emailing the content to me would be great, thank you so much!

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.

Cookbook:Char Siu[edit]

Not sure if this page qualifies for speedy deletion, so I am requesting it to be deleted here. I've noticed that Cookbook:Char Siu is an exact copy-and-paste of Cookbook:Char Sui (note the switched "u" and "i") and, according to Kgroat's edit summary on Cookbook:Char Siu, was intended to be a move to the correct name for the page. I am requesting it to be deleted to make way for a proper page move from Cookbook:Char Sui to Cookbook:Char Siu. (There is only one revision in Cookbook:Char Siu's page history, not including my addition of the {{rfd}} template.) CabbagePotato (discusscontribs) 06:25, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

@CabbagePotato: I think this easily qualifies as non-controversial housekeeping. I've changed it to a speedy deletion request on the page. @Kgroat: registered users can rename pages using the move tab at the top of the page. Please use this feature rather than copy-and-pasting because it preserves the edit history. Green Giant (discusscontribs) 16:48, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Labdoo Guide/How To Start[edit]

Please delete as content outdated and no update planned, as we moved to a local wiki in our homepage.

Not a valid deletion criterion. Other editors may choose to expand the material. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 16:21, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Modern Greek[edit]

Request to delete Modern_Greek/Lesson_7x. Content fully integrated on updated page Modern_Greek/Lesson_2.1x

Done. You appear to have moved all the content by copy / paste. The site license requires the history (i.e., the record of the original authors) to be maintained. If you want to do something similar in future please use the {{Now merged}} template to request a merge. Thanks - QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 09:10, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks @QuiteUnusual:. Yes, I've copied a few pages to fresh pages. I'm still sorting through the old content. I have just tried a "now merged", hope that it worked. Many thanks. Aphoneyclimber (discusscontribs) 13:30, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Request to delete Modern Greek/LegacyLesson_5b. There is nothing here that doesn't separately exist in Modern Greek/Lesson 02.2 which is the correct structure.

NOTE: There are on-going rfd's and merge requests for this. There appears to have been no active work on the Modern Greek Wikibook for many years and my attempts at getting previous contributors involved appears to have failed. I have made many changes / improvements and have had no comments, so I expect no discussion regarding these on going changes. Hopefully as the content grows some more contributors will be attracted.

Romanian/List of words[edit]

If we put the large amount of numbers − amounting to 2/3 of the content − aside, it doesn't provide readers with any helpful information about the Romanian language. Some of the translations are even in Polish, not in Romanian. --Robbie SWE (discusscontribs) 11:19, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

So you are requesting deletion of a single page? @Robbie SWE --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 01:43, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
@Atcovi: Yes, I am. I just started going through the Romanian pages so more deletions might be necessary in the near future. PS: upon further investigation, we have Romanian/Months and days of the week and Romanian/Numbers from 0 to 999, which contain the same information as the page I proposed for deletion. --Robbie SWE (discusscontribs) 10:17, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

PostgreSQL/Working with PostgreSQL[edit]

The page is a draft, there is only 1 extention since 2010. The content of the page has very few relationship to PostgreSQL. It's mainly a short description of some SQL commands which are common to all SQL implementations. Kelti (discusscontribs) 09:24, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Symbol keep vote.svg Keep this page concerns the data types and constraints so it won't be common to all DBMS. Moreover, I had planned to take care of this book in a few weeks... JackPotte (discusscontribs) 21:55, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Annotated Republic of China Laws/Civil Code[edit]

The copy of the Civil Code on en.wikibooks, Annotated Republic of China Laws/Civil Code, is actively harmful to the readers by providing law information that are years out of date. It is not explicit whether the whole thing is from a single snapshot in time, and if so, which revision it is. The ROC government already provides translated Civil code that's up to date at http://law.moj.gov.tw/Index.aspx. It also doesn't try to keep a record of every revision to the Civil Code like at like zh.wikisource.org. Also, I'm not sure why it's at wikisource for Chinese and wikibooks for English, but please don't move the proposed for deletion content to wikisource. As I mentioned, hosting outdated legal information is actively harmful to readers. --Makkachin (discusscontribs) 00:52, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Being out-of-date is not a valid deletion criterion. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 13:43, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Speedily keep. As http://law.moj.gov.tw does not always archive outdated legal texts, amended Taiwanese laws may be considered evolving works, thus not very good on English Wikisource. As the project starter, I am aware of amended articles. Annotated Republic of China Laws/Central Regulation Standard Act groups unamended articles together for better efficiency to make a page, with Annotated Republic of China Laws/Central Regulation Standard Act/Article 8 listing historical texts. I will soon hide amended articles from the main pages and later move them to subpages. Thanks.--Jusjih (discusscontribs) 23:56, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
    • The harm aspect remains. I would suggest there be a warning header at the top, and a link to the up-to-date translation that's freely provided by the government so users can ignore the harmful content that is kept at this site. --Makkachin (discusscontribs) 00:19, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
      • What exactly is harmful? This tone is too excessive. Taiwanese governmental translations of legal texts have no official status in courts of law, so any bad translations of current texts may also be harmful. Please be more respectful.--Jusjih (discusscontribs) 02:05, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
        • If you didn't like my wording, I can use a more vague terminology and say the existence of this translation is "problematic". If you don't see what's problematic about it, then you didn't understand my explanation and there is no point in reiterating what was already stated. How would you imagine serving completely outdated legal information to the users without any warning serve the reader's benefit? --Makkachin (discusscontribs) 23:00, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
