It's okay (encouraged even) to edit articles here once they have definitely been deleted on Wikipedia (unlike DPv1), but it's advisable to wait until articles have been definitely deleted on Wikipedia. Like that you can still go into the history of an article and find your edits.

Deletionpedia is a radical inclusionist wiki for rescuing articles from Wikipedia's deletionism. It was started by Guaka on December 24th 2013 and has so far rescued 91,264 articles.

As of July 21st 2015 there are also versions in other languages: French, Dutch, German and Swedish.

Some bot code is available at GitHub.

Process

Articles that are under discussion on Wikipedia are automatically copied here by Robyt. If the article is retained on Wikipedia the article is emptied on Deletionpedia. If the article is removed on Wikipedia we don't have to do anything here. So if an article is not deleted we won't delete the article here, Robyt will just put a template linking back to Wikipedia. But articles are often relisted for deletion again soon.

User are welcome to sign up and help with the project.

Free wiki hosting for Deletionpedia is provided by wiki.yt.

History

Back in 2008 deletionpedia.org was launched for the first time (not by Guaka). The project stopped working after a while.[no citations needed here]
