This is a first person article but feel free to edit and adapt, just add your name below.

I understand why some people are deletionists, but it's very unfortunate that this group of people has managed to take over Wikipedia.[1] The problem is not so much with keeping Wikipedia free from trivial articles, the problem is more the atmosphere that it creates. Sometimes it just takes 2 people who can destroy the work of someone who really thought they were doing a good job.

Deletionism also creates a very negative vibe. The person whose work is deleted is not going to continue working on Wikipedia as their contributions would merely be a waste of time.

Wikipedia:Drafts is a project that aims to overcome this issue. However, articles not edited for six months or more sadly are eligible for deletion per a rule known as WP:G13[1]. I hope it will succeed. I wonder though if the lost positive energy can be found back though.


I agree
