helping Deletionpedia

Hello. Is there are FAQ somewhere on this site? If not, it would be interesting to present info as a FAQ.

I wonder how do you deal with the spam issue, since all articles are allowed. And my third question: what is the best way to help you? Is there a "to-do" page?

Is there a way to not have the image captcha for each post? (unsigned post by PERCE-NEIGE (talk) 10:59, 1 June 2019‎ (CET))

@PERCE-NEIGE Thanks for asking. Our FAQ is at Spam articles on English Wikipedia are generally dealt with via Wikipedia:WP:CSD#G11 and don't survive long enough to be subject to AfD. Guaka and I terminate spam articles and other pages posted directly here, and the accounts which post them. You can tag any which escape our notice with "{{delete}}".   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 11:29, 1 June 2019 (CEST)
Thank you for your answer!

Is there a to-do list, what is the way to be most useful here? You include Wikipedia articles automatically, and you deal with spam, but what can a normal user could do to help you. Translating some pages?

Do you have a forum by the way?

And about the captcha?

I've stumbled upon your site from a shoutwiki's wiki, and reading his goal, I have also this question: In Wikipedia, there are not only articles that are deleted, but really often interesting sections within an article "no original research". I would be very interested to be able to read some of those deleted sections. Is it also included in this wiki?

Thank you. --PERCE-NEIGE (talk) 13:02, 1 June 2019 (CEST)

@PERCE-NEIGE Guaka has his own to-do list on the Main Page, but we the users don't have one per se. is separate from my POV, I don't know more than a few words in French. User talk:Guaka functions as our forum, but you could post to Talk:Main Page. The captchas are trying to address the spam problem, but I don't know how successful they are (you could ask Guaka). Unless a Wikipedia article is deleted via AfD as original research, it doesn't get copied here, but sections of original research are still visible in the history of articles that still exist there.   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 13:45, 2 June 2019 (CEST)
