  • I get very annoyed when people ignore me. I told you to read this. To show that you did so please tell me what are the last four words of the message to which my read this link points. Since you are unlikely to become a Wikipedia editor, I do not demand that you comply with the instructions but I would still like to know that you read the message. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:30, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of CerberusOS Wiki article[edit]

Nomination of Still photography for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Still photography is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Still photography until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Qono (talk) 17:37, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Useras/Les Useres[edit]

Deleted Draft:List of Ace of Diamond chapters[edit]

Hi! I was the one who created Draft:List of Ace of Diamond chapters, which was deleted by you shortly after I submitted it for review. I just want to ask why it has been deleted. Is the issue the summaries included in the page? If so, I got those summaries from Kodansha USA's page for the series and not from Amazon. I would just like to understand why it was deleted for copyright infringement. It was not my intention to do so. Hope you can elaborate on this to me so I can keep the reason in mind before redoing the draft and sending it again for review. Thank you very much! Perseushunt (talk) 22:43, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

  • It does not matter whence you got it, it was still a solid lump of copyvio, eg. from this page. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:21, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the response! May I know if it would still be a violation if I cite where I got the summary from? Thanks! Perseushunt (talk) 21:58, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Deleted:Doubles curling[edit]

Hi, you just deleted Doubles curling even though there was no copyright infringement and I pointed this out on the talk page. This is the website that the supposed copyrighted text came from: [1]. If you look it says towards the bottom of the page, "Here is a simplified version at Wikipedia:" and then links to the Mixed curling article that Doubles curling was split from. Right below that line is the text that the Doubles curling article had that matched the website and was supposedly copyright infringement. How is this copyright infringement when they got the text from wikipedia and even cited the originating article? The article shouldn't have been deleted anyway since the alleged copyright infringing text was only a portion of the article and Wikipedia:CSD#G12 says "where there is no non-infringing content on the page worth saving". Why was the article deleted? - A202985 (talk) 22:12, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Fight the New Drug[edit]

Excuse me? I've never seen the deleted version of the article, so an article I wrote from scratch cannot be a repost of deleted content. This does not qualify under G4 speedy deletion. — feminist (talk) 09:33, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Fight the New Drug. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. — feminist (talk) 13:38, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

  • I stick to the world of unambiguous keep/delete decisions. As soon as I see 8k bytes of discussion start up, I bow out and let others fight over it. I have given the nearly headless admin carte blanche. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:30, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Disappearance of Brittanee Drexel[edit]

Just to let you know I'm recreating this page—deleted after an AfD eight years ago, and then deleted again by you in 2013 after a recreation. Not only is there more coverage in reliable sources, there have been continuing developments in the story with news coverage as recently as two months ago. — Daniel Case (talk) 16:21, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Charlotte Townsend-Gault[edit]

Hi RHaworth, thanks for catching my errors. I am a new editor. I want to re-write the article, without the block quotations, and list of publications, as it appears that I was trying to work with something beyond my editing skill level. I see that I need some sort of permission to do so? Would you be able to advise how I seek that permission? Thanks. FourtyToo (talk) 19:36, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of Jhett Black Edition[edit]

Hello, I see you've deleted a page that I had contested the deletion request on. Once there was a keep request, the page needs to go through review. It's clear that the the reason I gave against the deletion on the article's talk page was completely ignored. The album charted on the official Japanese music chart Oricon, which is enough for an article to have a page.Xenobia4 (talk) 02:45, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Jhett Black Edition. I listed the article in the section heading. — Xenobia4 (talk) 00:10, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

  • You listed it but did you provide a link? Restored - fix the excessive amount of shouting. Do you think it would be a good idea to provide an article about the artiste before writing about his works? Please reply. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:58, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. I want to start on a page on the artist, but finding complete information on the Jhett himself has proved difficult, whereas he was only an official artist for a year under the Avex label before returning as a underground artist. His official singles and album releases are easy enough to locate, however. I would love for someone with more experience in tracking down information on smaller artists, if you can recommend a fellow contributor.Xenobia4 (talk) 22:59, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Will do. Thank you so much! Xenobia4 (talk) 03:54, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Undeletion request[edit]

Hello, I am working for over four days on the hybrid blockchain draft that just got speedy deleted. I am researching different types of hybrid blockchains and have put that information about Polkadot there so I can continue writing on it in my own words. That entire article is being written by myself, except that little piece about Polkadot because I am not finished yet. This is very complex material and it takes a lot of time to make sure everything is accurate. I apologize for this mistake from my part, I was not aware I am in conflict while still working in draft. I do not understand why the entire draft got deleted instead of just that little part of a long piece of work. Please allow me to continue working on that draft. And I will not make the same mistake again. — JeffreyDutch (talk) 10:18, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

  • You have my full permission to continue working and I will try and remember if I see it in CAT:CSD, to leave it for someone else. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:30, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much, I appreciate this a lot. Is it possible the draft gets restored so I can make the changes and continue working on it? Or do I need to start from the beginning again? Thank you. JeffreyDutch (talk) 09:46, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • I am getting fed up with telling people to read this so I will overlook your error in that department and will content myself with just saying: read this. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:20, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for overlooking. I've made the changes to my profile. And would be grateful if you can find time to email me the hybrid blockchain draft. — JeffreyDutch (talk) 13:01, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • I found this edit rather amusing. At least it shows you are trying but unfortunately it is not the change I wanted. In fact I gave you a very big hint: what change did I make to your first message with this edit? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:39, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Well, at least I was able to amuse you for once, unlike many others on this page. To be honest I am really tired now and my only other try currently would be to do this before I try again tomorrow: hybrid blockchain Wait, do I increase my chances if I try both options? hybrid blockchain Wait, that last edit is the correct one. My final answer. Overlook my error again if I amused you. — JeffreyDutch (talk) 19:39, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you very much for sending me the email with the draft. Now I will certainly sleep well and more educated. — JeffreyDutch (talk) 19:54, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

deletion of John Edmonds (artist)[edit]

Hi RHaworth, I see you speedily deleted the page for John Edmonds (artist). I was unable to challenge the speedy deletion. I ran it through earwig copy vio and did not have an issue as it was under 50% from what I can remember. Since the page was speedily deleted, I was unable to confirm the copyright issues or lack there of. Is there a way for you to restore the page and for me to continue to work on the page to mitigate the copyvio issues you saw in it? Thank you, -- Wil540 art (talk) 23:06, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of page Umberto Malesci[edit]

Hello RHaworth, you deleted the page Umberto Malesci without placing it on Speedy Deletion Wiki. Your assessment on notability is inaccurate. The page had references from the major Italian newspaper that published articles about me, my achievements, and my ventures. "Corriere della Sera" and "Sole 24 Ore" are the most reputable newspapers in Italy. They would correspond, respectively, to the NY Times and WSJ in the US. Doing a google news search with "Umberto Malesci" would provide you significant news coverage about who I am and what I've done:

Below a few relevant articles for your review: [2], [3]. Moreover, there is significant coverage in the US as well including Forbes that cites me as a leading expert in his field: [4], [5] and [6]. I am a recipient of the Milan Chamber of Commerce award as "entrepreneur of the year" for the City of Milan in 2011: [7].

I'd appreciate if you can recreate the page and, if you still are uncertain about notability for my page, start a Wikipedia discussion involving other editors who are familiar with my field and with the reputation of newspapers like "Sole 24 Ore" and "Corriere delle Sera". Best regards, Umberto Malesci — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:43, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • What on earth is "Speedy Deletion Wiki"? Give me a link to it. I am going to assume that neither Internethings (talk · contribs) nor Kingnetworking (talk · contribs) is you so my advice is: kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no CoI thinks you are notable and writes about you here.

Deleted Page - Ha Li Fa Pte Ltd[edit]

Hi RHaworth, I'm the creator of Ha Li Fa Pte Ltd, and I create the article cautious with Wikipedia Guidelines on an organisation. I want to learn more from you on which part of the article falls on advertising & promotion. All sources are from independent third parties and popular news portal. Besides, I also refer few F&B companies on Wikipedia (no warning tags)for references. Hence, I would like to request you to send a copy of the article to my email (I already enable others to send me an email from Preference) or restore the article to my username/sandbox.

Deleted draft for Michalis Tiverios[edit]

You had deleted my draft for Michalis Tiverios and after my request here you have kindly sent the deleted draft back via e-mail. I would be grateful if you could check the new draft Michalis Tiverios in order to see if there is any problem with its content. -- Dimiterzop (talk) 09:56, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Janice Griffith[edit]

Janice Griffith was deleted despite the verdict at the most recent discussion here. Can you please {{ping}} me and let me know why this was deleted without a more recent XFD, contrary to that discussion? I created a redirect to Cane Hill (band) from that term. The redirect is a different type of entry than the article. -- Jax 0677 (talk) 13:21, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi RHaworth. Jax 0677's message above is misleading at best. In the RfD, he voted to "keep" and wrote, "If the article can be created, then it should be created." So I withdrew the nomination and turned the redirect into a stub, leading to the G4 deletion. That's fine; I wasn't aware of the prior AfD. However, the consensus of that AfD wasn't to "redirect" but to "delete." If this subject is not notable, the page should be "salted," not redirected.
I opened the RfD in the first place due to BLP concerns. If the subject is a non-notable living person, her name should not be redirected to a section about her being a victim of domestic violence, cited to a blog post. I think that this is callous and contrary to BLP. What do you think? — (talk) 18:31, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Jax 0677, you don't get pinged - you are expected to watch this page for my reply. Restored. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:39, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Helen Engle[edit]

Hello, I was working on the creation of a page for conservationist Helen Engle, which was deleted: I cited all information used from all sources, fairly aggressively. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to avoid perceived copyright infringement on this text. Best, Hoppelt111 (talk) 18:12, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Please read this and this. Any article that contains "award-winning" in its first sentence gets zapped instantly in my view. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:39, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

I did include the link and I have the original content. I can remove the phrase 'award winning' from the intro. Is there any other reason why this page was deleted? Hoppelt111 (talk) 20:40, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Hoppelt111: The problem was that your biography was copied directly from another website, which we can't allow for legal reasons. I have restored your draft to a basic stub; I'll ping Megalibrarygirl who is a highly experienced editor in improving biographies of women to see if she can help. — Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:09, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Undelete Request Highway Runoff database[edit]

Dear Mr. Haworth, Thank you for your rigorous protection of Wikipedia and your prompt attention to my article on the Highway Runoff Database (HRDB). I annotated the top of the page with the note: "<!-- NOTE: The highway runoff database and the associated reports are works of the United States government and, therefore, are not subject to copyright restrictions. This page should not be rejected/deleted due to text copied from such publications -->" At the bottom, I added the code {{USGS}}. The Wikipedia page I created has extensive links to the published source documents; all of which are in the public domain. Finally, I am the primary author of the HRDB and many of the reports that include the HRDB. The HRDB is free to the public, but because it is a government publication, is not publicized. Over the decade since it was first published I have noticed many cases where tax payer money was wasted because government researchers and university students have recreated efforts to assemble information available in the HRDB. I am a civil servant and so have nothing to gain from publication on Wikipedia.

Extended content
In several comments on your talk page, you suggest that people wait until the subject of a page garners outside attention; that is a valid observation. The HRDB has been included in two published and one draft (soon to be published) reports by the U.S. National Academies of Science Engineering and Medicine

Barrett, Michael, L.E. Katz, Scott Taylor, J.J Sansalone, and Marty Stevenson, 2014,Measuring and Removing Dissolved Metals from Stormwater in Highly Urbanized Areas. Transportation Research Board, Washington, D.C., 2014. NCHRP Report 767:

Taylor, Scott, Michael Barrett, Marc Leisenring, Sheila Sahu, Daniel Pankani, Aaron Poresky, Adam Questad, Eric Strecker, Neil Weinstein, and Marie Venner. 2016, Long-term performance and life-cycle costs of stormwater best management practices. Transportation Research Board, Washington, D.C., NCHRP Report 792

It also has been cited by these journal articles/reports

C Ernst, L Katz, M Barrett, 2016, Removal of dissolved copper and zinc from highway runoff via adsorption: Journal of Sustainable Water in the Built Environment Volume 2 Issue 1

Michael Barrett, Lynn Katz, Scott Taylor 2014, Removal of Dissolved Heavy Metals in Highway Runoff: Transportation Research Record Volume: 2436 issue: 1, page(s): 131-138

and the report Wagner, C.R., Fitzgerald, S.A., Sherrell, R.D., Harned, D.A., Staub, E.L., Pointer, B.H., and Wehmeyer, L.L., 2011, Characterization of stormwater runoff from bridges in North Carolina and the effects of bridge deck runoff on receiving streams: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2011–5180, 95 p. + 8 appendix tables, available online at

The HRDB also has been cited in several USGS reports, journal articles, and conference papers that I was an author or coauthor on.

However, these articles and reports cite a older versions of the database; people may not be able to find newer versions. Wikipedia can help people find the latest versions. Also, once the HRDB page is created, this Wikipedia page can be used on other Wikipedia pages that discuss stormwater management, nonpoint source pollution, and related topics. In this way students and scientists will more readily find the HRDB and the actual data about the quality of highway runoff. The also will be able to find other original sources cited by the HRDB Wikipedia page.

I spent about 4 hours boiling down information from other sources and reorganizing and rewriting my previous writings on the HRDB and creating the images used on the page. I'd be grateful for feedback on how to improve the work, but nuking someone's work wholesale without discussion or the chance for feedback seems a bit drastic. At the least please send me my work so it is not completely lost. Thank you, GEGranato GEGranato (talk) 19:30, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Haworth, Thanks for your feedback and thanks for emailing the page back to me. The item you noticed "not all states have highway runoff" was in the sentence "...The HRDB contains data from across the country but not all states have highway runoff and not all data are representative of current conditions...." and should have read "not all states have highway runoff data..." You are correct that there is even highway runoff in Death Valley, although you would be lucky to catch a sample there. The highway runoff stub is fairly short and I did plan on adding to it (although the author did a good job abstracting a lot of information into a paragraph of similar scope to the other topics on the rest of the page). I tried to improve the atmospheric inputs section on that non-point page by changing text and adding citations because there was a call for help on that topic. Your idea to build a highway runoff page is a good one, — Preceding unsigned comment added by GEGranato (talkcontribs) 15:01, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

  • A decent article on the subject will explain why some states do not see highway runoff as an issue which, presumably is why there is no data. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:16, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

The Isis Thesis[edit]

Good day, RHaworth, Link to page you deleted: [8]. On April 13, 2019, you deleted the draft Isis Thesis page due to a G12 error:

I understand why you did that. Good call. However, I am the author of that paper, and their publication is fine with me. I was wondering if you could reinstate the deleted page if I remove that so-called G12 source citation. If not, could you tell me what you did not like in the article itself. I will add your comments to the Criticism section, if you choose. If you do not want to reinstate the page, I would appreciate a copy of the page.

If you are into all these, you will enjoy it deeply." is completely unacceptable for a neutral, general purpose encyclopedia.

Sealy Australia Deletion[edit]

Good day, Sir! You have deleted our previous draft of [Sealy Australia's Wikipedia page] as mentioned here , understandably so as we have not provided any copyleft notice beforehand—apologies for that! So, we would like to request you to please give us access to the previously written article again as Sealy AU is keen to send a copyleft notice and needs the URL of the page/file.

Of course, if there's anything else you need from our end, or if I'm going about this the wrong way (I'm a Wiki newbie, after all), please let me know!

Hi, apologies. I was cleaning up my subpages because I didn't previously know how to move drafts to the mainspace -- rookie mistake. What I did before was to create a draft, and then submit another draft to be published instead of clicking "More" and "Move" to mainspace.

Afd Delete or Keep?[edit]

Hi, RHawort. Did you mean to close this discussion as a delete or keep: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/ — Ceethekreator (talk) 11:40, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

  • The discussion says "the result was delete" so why do you ask the question? See also these edits. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:47, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
You closed this based on one nomination and no comments? This, per policy, should have been a soft delete or a relist. Although according to this, the result was "redirect"; we normally close AfDs as "delete" when we don't even want a redirect. So you've contradicted yourself. Next job, Haworth, prove that the sum of all integers is -1/12. — Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:46, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Request for archive of BLP for Alina von Davier[edit]

Hi User:RHaworth, I am requesting an archive copy of the deleted page Draft:Alina von Davier. Can you email an archived copy of the page? It was deleted on April 4, 2019. Thank you, Atomburke1 (talk) 18:58, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Jeff Oster[edit]

Jeff Oster Deletion - Why I'm not certain why this page was deleted. It was approved and stood for a some time. The only recent change was the addition of his nomination to the IMA awards, others of which were already mentioned in the page. The page is not promotional. He has done significant work (which is why it was approved). Please tell me how this page violated part of the Wikipedia rules? Thank you. Meta in MA -- Meta in MA (talk) 12:00, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

I’m sorry: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meta in MA (talkcontribs) 23:43, 17 April 2019 (UTC) I would like to point out that this page was completely rewritten and anything that smocked of being promotional was removed (that promotional content was unintentional: it is just my natural writing style. I have no COI). It was absolutely not a cut and paste of a previously deleted page. I worked with two editors to clean up the work: they have since left Wikipedia.

I'm getting really disappointed with trying to submit work to Wikipedia. I'm trying to follow the rules and better document New Age artists, and once I get an article edited to the point where it is approved, it gets deleted. Does Wikipedia what to suppress new authors? Please, I ask you to reconsider and look at the substantial improvements I made and the fact there is absolutely nothing promotional and no COI here. Please undelete my article. Thank you -- Meta in MA (talk) 12:47, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of PassportCard[edit]

Well, I must say I am quite disappointed in this swift deletion of an article without giving anyone a chance to respond. I am a long time editor and I have created dozens of articles. Nobody has treated my articles with such utter disrespect. It was not promotional in the least. It was an article about a solid company, with many solid sources to back it up. There is so much crap on here, and nobody does anything for years and years, but an article I sweated over is deleted with one button click? No wonder nobody wants to edit Wikipedia anymore. For shame. Please restore the article and explain where exactly the "advertising" is.--Geewhiz (talk) 19:57, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

OS coordinates down[edit]

Hi Roger; if I click a link for an OS grid ref it throws a HTTP 503 error; for example, at Toton TMD in the infobox the OS grid link SK484355 returns "No webservice The URI you have requested, /os/coor_g/?pagename=Toton_TMD&params=SK484355_region%3AGB_scale%3A25000, is not currently serviced." -- Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:20, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of Draft:Wales Centre for Public Policy[edit]

Hi, I'd like to request the undeletion of the Draft:Wales Centre for Public Policy. You have stated (G12: Unambiguous copyright infringement of as the reason, which I'm confused by as I work for the centre (as I've disclosed on my user page) and we own the content on our website. I actually wrote what you believe we've plagiarized! Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RossNJ19 (talkcontribs) 07:52, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

G11 and a lack of content[edit]

I went for G11 on Antriksh Rathi Architects because the username was clearly related, it was obviously the name of a business, and had no content – therefore nothing to suggest it wasn't spam. However, your deletion comment gave me pause for thought that it might not have been the best tag. Any suggestions on the off chance I come across something like this in future? — Triptothecottage (talk) 11:52, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Not vandalism[edit]

my own page user:scmcgowen/catlandism is NOT vandalism and is in fact my own article on my own personal topic and is in my own user space because of that. It is encyclopedic content about my own personal thing. please undo your deletion You also did this deletion without warning to me. — Scmcgowen (talk) 15:45, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Request to Restore Dave Schulz (musician)[edit]

Hello, I would like to request the page Dave Schulz (musician) be restored. I am a follower of Schulz's music and had contributed to the page in the past. I recognize there were recent edits that seemed much more promotional, and may have had copyright violations. (I didn't verify the copyright violations or not). There were also questions about notability.

I rebuilt the page following the standards of other musicians similar to Dave Schulz. In doing so, I added multiple attributions in my first draft, with intent to spend more time on it later to continue adding references and cross-link to other Wikipedia articles. I believe my new version was free of copyright and certainly not promotional in nature. If there are continued questions about notability, I would welcome a discussion on the talk page of the article. Could you please restore my work? — 99Perfectos (talk) 13:00, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. But are you able to undelete the page? 99Perfectos (talk) 17:34, 19 April 2019 (UTC)


I strongly suggest restoring the Quandl page. After a long search I finally found the content on . The page reads as a description according to me. If you don't agree please tell me which parts are an advertisement according to you. (Feel free to delete those parts).

The following might not sound polite, but has to be said: Some people are actually interested in wikipedia-pages with descriptions of websites that they can use. Please do not vandalize the wikipedia by just removing webpages that you don't like ! It took me a while to find the site and it would have been a lot easier if you didn't randomly remove pages from Wikipedia. Try to improve pages (e.g. by removing what looks advertisement) instead of lazy deletion them. If it seems like to much work, then delete the parts you don't like.

I noticed on your talk page you did this for multiple pages, please take a look at them and restore them. You don't even have to do restore them completely, if the page is terrible just place a tiny stub instead, but leave something behind ! -- Garo (talk) 14:03, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Wikipedia is not a directory for indiscriminately listing websites. "Place a tiny stub instead" - that would be even worse. Take it to DRV if you must. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 16:36, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Quandl page[edit]

Hi RHaworth,

Per the instructions on your user page, I'm hoping you can share with me the text of the deleted Quandl Wikipedia page. See deletion log here for reference -

In the interests of full transparency, I do have a COI as I represent Quandl and have been asked to reach out to you to recover the text of the page. If you have specific feedback on what made you decide the page was evidence of "unambiguous advertising or promotion," that would be greatly appreciated as we work to fix the page and hopefully one day resubmit it for the Wikipedia community's consideration. Thank you.

Draft:Operating Systems Design and Implementation[edit]

Please see this restoration. This article had been originally at WP:Articles for deletion/Operating Systems Design and Implementation, but was speedied by you as A7 before the AfD finished. So I hoped you'd agree with a restoration to draft space. Unless someone improves the article it doesn't seem likely to pass a new AfD, so I've left that message at WP:REFUND. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 03:43, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

OS link failing[edit]

Hiya. I was on Tegg's Nose, and clicked on its SJ947725 link. That took me to a failure page with which you're doubtless familiar. May I ask whether I'm doing something wrong? FWIW, I run Firefox. Thanks, Trafford09 (talk) 07:58, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Delation of User:Vidyutblogger/sandbox/Vidyut Gore[edit]

  1. Please review speedy deletion of User:Vidyutblogger/sandbox/Vidyut Gore
  2. Can you confirm you considered contestation (in progress) at User talk:Vidyutblogger/sandbox/Vidyut Gore?

Thankyou. I have prepared this quickly as I have appointment I need to leave for very shortly for a few hours. Thankyou. Djm-leighpark (talk) 19:11, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

I contest that this should now have been deleted under unambiguous advertising. The page was being used as a sandbox consisting of a number of references that were being prepared for use in articles. This may well have been biased ... that is not the point. the page owner has since become aware they are likely to be judged to have a political bias and would likely not be usable directly (but they may arguably be used under the request edit system). I also observe this was a sandbox and was one of ten to fifteen pages deleted at 18:51. I await your initial response. Thankyou. Djm-leighpark (talk) 23:30, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
