Deletion request

Deletion request

Dear Guaka, With all due respect to your goals, which I believe are true and honorable, my Deletionpedia page ranks quite high when I search and unfortunately it's quite low in the opinion of at least one potential employer that passed on e, for a really god job; a friend in HR gave me the skinny on the situation. As much has I would like to support your project, I have mouths to feed and need to spiff up as much as possible. Will you please remove my page? It's at this page?

I hope you'll consider my request as valid and help a guy out.

Thanks, Dave.

Hi Dave, sure I deleted it now. Guaka (talk) 18:53, 23 June 2018 (CEST)

Deletion request

Hi Guaka! I really appreciate the work made here, but I have a request. Can you please help me removing the page [deleted]? The agency in which I work represents her, and for issues related to her image, we would prefer that the content were deleted. I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance, Adan.

Done! Guaka (talk) 23:22, 9 May 2017 (CEST)
Thank you! :)

Hello Guaka,

I'd appreciate your help in deleting the page. An equivalent page was deleted by Wikipedia and no rescue is required.

Thank you,

Done! Guaka (talk) 17:24, 13 October 2018 (CEST)

Thank you!

For running deletionpedia, and all your previous and ongoing work on other wikis! Mike Linksvayer (talk) 18:31, 26 December 2013 (GMT)


Ought there be a link to the Wikipedia article, even if deleted? Links to the AfD page(s) would be helpful too, as they sometimes have suggestions for how to improve an article. Ideally, the history of an article would be imported, not just a snapshot. I'm mentioning this prompted in part by a comment about license compliance but I think maintaining as much article provenance as possible would be genuinely useful. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 05:57, 27 December 2013 (GMT)

Good idea. Added to User:Robyt, feel free to add more.
I'll probably set up a github repo for it soon. But it slightly depends on the state of the Speedy Deletion Wiki bot code. Guaka (talk) 12:17, 27 December 2013 (GMT)

Hi Guaka.

I'm noticing pages the article FOX animated universe (nominated for deletion on November 6) is not automatically being imported from Wikipedia. Is there a procedure for doing this manually? Ideally I'd like this to carry the contributor history per GDFL requirements (and also to credit the contributors).

Thank you!

Thanks for creating this site. I hope to contribute and help as much as possible by cleaning up article errors that occurred when adopting them from the Wikipedia format so that they are readable to users. --Topbookclub Talk 23:58, 31 August 2016 (CEST)

Delete ""

Hello dear

Thanks for the great work on

Pls, I want this article removed from the platform completely ""

It was removed entirely from English wikipedia because it was purely written to tarnish the subject. Pls help

That's very kind of you. Thank you!

Malena Morgan

Hi. Thank you for your work here. It appears article Wikipedia:Malena Morgan was deleted four times on English Wikipedia (the latest time after AfD 21:01, 3 April 2016 (UTC)) per this log, but it is not here and it appears never to have been here. What can be done about this? Jeff G. (talk) 04:38, 27 February 2017 (CET)

I figured out the problem, she is a porn star. Jeff G. (talk) 06:30, 15 March 2017 (CET)

Also, please consider archiving deleted pages on Simple English Wikipedia. Jeff G. (talk) 04:46, 27 February 2017 (CET)

In addition, please consider archiving the talk pages of the deleted articles. Jeff G. (talk) 06:35, 27 February 2017 (CET)

What is your policy on vandalism? Vicki Calhoun has been blanked or substantially reduced three times already, and I don't see anything defamatory in it. Jeff G. (talk) 00:43, 15 March 2017 (CET)

Hi Jeff! I'm seeing some good edits from you here, thanks for that! My time for Deletionpedia is extremely limited so I promoted you to Admin now and I trust you to do the right things with these powers. The things you mention all make total sense. Let me know when you need me for something you can't do with the Admin rights.
That is, outside of actual bot modifications, you could create issues there at - maybe someone will work on that. Guaka (talk) 01:35, 15 March 2017 (CET)
Thank you very much! Jeff G. (talk) 03:24, 15 March 2017 (CET)

Request for checkuser

Hi. Can you please checkuser the users who have been deleting sourced content from Michael Gastauer, with an eye toward blocking their rangeblock and informing their ISPs? Jeff G. (talk) 05:12, 31 March 2017 (CEST)

Talk pages

Some talk pages grow even if the respective article gets put up for AfD. To correct this I've started to manually copy-editing talk pages from Wikipedia AfD:s to here. I only copy the pages that have merits outside of Wikipedia. PsychoticInq (talk) 15:22, 6 August 2017 (CEST)

PsychoticInq: Thanks for letting us know. You meant "copying" rather than "copy-editing", right? Please don't move pages here without leaving Template:Moved from. Jeff G. (talk) 16:03, 24 August 2017 (CEST)

Speedy Deletion

Hi, I've noticed that speedily deleted articles aren't saved by the systems in place here. Is there anything we can do to save these also? --ACA (talk) 16:57, 22 October 2017 (CEST)

Two ways to do this. 1. Admin account access to Wikipedia. 2. Immediately copy everything that is added.
In practice 1. would be a lot easier to implement but requires some social interaction. Guaka (talk) 09:35, 23 October 2017 (CEST)
I'm afraid that the admins are meant to implement the speedy deletion universally as a sort of punishment. The punishment being that you loose all your work and need to start over. So I think it might be hard to find admins that are willing to cooperate. However perhaps this will help, [[1]] Not sure if they all end up here but the pages can be grabbed from here once added.--ACA (talk) 23:33, 23 October 2017 (CEST)

Deletion Request?

Dear Guaka, First of all, I really appreciate all the work that you've done through deletionpedia--an important effort for preserving archives. I have a request: I was wondering if you could help remove the page [deleted] from the site? The page was deleted from Wikipedia, but the AfD discussion for this page was heated and can lead to some misunderstanding for the subject, who is someone I know, and I think that the real-world consequences of having the page might be negative. I really hope you can help! In the meantime, I've edited the page to diminish misunderstanding, but removing the page would be optimal. Thank you so much for your understanding! Ethan Ethyan (talk) 23:37, 12 November 2017 (CET)


There's this MediaWiki feature called InstantCommons. If you enable it on, then if an article requests an image that doesn't exist here but exists on Wikimedia Commons, it will import a lower-quality version of the image onto Deletionpedia. What do you think? Much less cumbersome than importing images so that pages make sense.
Also File:Barnstar of reliable deletionism.png is linked onto from Main Page, but it doesn't exist here (it exists on Commons though).

Bringing back all the wikipedia deleted pages - ever!

Hi, first of all great work and a big thank you! But as far as I understand, deletionpedia only includes articles deleted AFTER its creation in 2013, I may have found a way to bring back all wikipedia articles ever deleted (and please correct me if I am wrong):

as far as I understood from here

the wiki articles are never completely deleted: "When a page is deleted, its text remains in the text table but its metadata (e.g. its deleted revision history) is moved from the revision table to the archive table" so we need only to have access to all the metadata of the archive table. this is probably (but I am not sure) available here in the wikipedia complete dump:

maybe the latest wiki dump is too big to play with, so just for basic test 2006 dump is much smaller:

I would check for myself, but I do not know even how to start...

Robyt stuck

Hi. It appears Robyt hasn't run since 4 January. :( Jeff G. (talk) 13:33, 7 March 2018 (CET)

Oh! Thanks for the heads up. Fixing it now! Guaka (talk) 15:06, 7 March 2018 (CET)
Please fix it again. Jeff G. (talk) 08:21, 5 May 2018 (CEST)
Looks like it has been running fine: Guaka (talk) 10:52, 8 May 2018 (CEST)

I'm DW

Sup, Guaka! I'm DW! I am a new user here who is interested in doing anti-vandalism work. I'm a very fast and well active editor. I also have very eagle eyes for spotting any signs of vandalism via the recent changes. I love to patrol the wiki for any spam or vandalism if that's alright with you. I will do a great job here! DW (Dove Windsor) 17:09, 8 April 2019 (CEST)
Hi DW! Nice. I gave you admin rights. Enjoy! Guaka (talk) 17:14, 8 April 2019 (CEST)
Thank you! DW (Dove Windsor) 17:16, 8 April 2019 (CEST)

Report on inappropriate content

Hi, Guaka! There has been a lot of inappropriate content here. There has been inappropriate articles related to "porn" and "porno". I have deleted them and I have also blocked those users from editing! DW (Dove Windsor) 17:52, 9 April 2019 (CEST)
Thanks for this! Guaka (talk) 18:49, 9 April 2019 (CEST)

Change username

Hi! Could you change my user name to "BabyMissFortune"? Thanks! DW (Dove Windsor) 17:18, 10 April 2019 (CEST)

More porno articles

I have deleted tons of articles about sex and porn. I have also blocked over 60 users for inappropriate content. DW (Dove Windsor) 01:09, 12 April 2019 (CEST)

Requesting for bureaucrat rights

Hi! I think that you may need another helping hand by having another bureaucrat on this wiki. DW (Dove Windsor) 02:09, 12 April 2019 (CEST)
Hi again. I didn't know that position was even available here. If it is, I'd like to throw my hat in the ring.   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 13:09, 12 April 2019 (CEST)
@User talk:Jeff G. Bureaucrat positions are available on all wikis. DW (Dove Windsor) 21:57, 12 April 2019 (CEST)
The only difference between Administrator and Bureaucrat is that a Bureaucrat can change user roles.
Don't think it's needed currently. I'm not really active here, but if someone wants/needs to be upgraded to Administrator I'll act swiftly on any request. Guaka (talk) 13:17, 13 April 2019 (CEST)
It is not about having too many administrators, it is about finding the best ones who will be willing enough and trusted enough to do a good job here by patrolling this wiki. DW (Dove Windsor) 23:44, 13 April 2019 (CEST)

510 edits and counting on

Guess how many edits that I have now done and celebrating? DW (Dove Windsor) 02:56, 17 April 2019 (CEST)


Feel free to join our new wiki. User:Jeff G. has joined. User:Stranger195 is still considering. Nasapedia. I hope to see you there! DW (Dove Windsor) 23:21, 20 April 2019 (CEST)


Hi. What is your policy for files? Is Fair Use allowed? Do files have to comply with any particular country's copyright laws?   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 07:59, 4 May 2019 (CEST)

@User talk:Jeff G. Who knows about what is the policy for files. I presume that somehow we could create it. It could be useful. Copyright laws has nothing to do with it. Images only need to say free licensed. DW (Dove Windsor) 08:03, 4 May 2019 (CEST)
Do yours?   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 22:34, 5 May 2019 (CEST)
Yes! Totally. What about yours? DW (Dove Windsor) 22:38, 5 May 2019 (CEST)
I haven't uploaded any files here. So where does your File:Freckled Dove Windsor.jpg, for example, "say free licensed"?   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 08:09, 6 May 2019 (CEST)
A magician never reveals her secrets! Besides, the File:Freckled Dove Windsor.jpg is actually the real me. I do have blonde hair. I do have blue eyes. I do have freckles, and I do have a nice smile. I think someone has a crush. DW (Dove Windsor) 09:19, 6 May 2019 (CEST)

I think we may need more admins here! DW (Dove Windsor) 22:56, 6 May 2019 (CEST)
I think you are making a big mistake. I have blocked many spammers. You need to reconsider this. I was going to get more people here to help protect this wiki. Please change me back. DW (Dove Windsor) 13:16, 11 May 2019 (CEST)


Hi. What else can we do about them? Autoblocks only last 24 hours, and I can't see their IP Addresses. Can you at least extend the autoblocks?   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 13:31, 16 May 2019 (CEST)


Do you need any new admins? Seems like a cool job to me. Astronomical (talk) 13:51, 21 May 2019 (CEST)

"no consensus"

Hi again. The AfD on enwiki for MultiCharts was closed as "no consensus" and the article was kept there, so why was it kept here, too?   — Jeff G. please mention or talk to me 00:05, 6 June 2019 (CEST)
