Document deletion tagging workflows on non-English wikis that have expressed a recent interest in PageTriage
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Hey @Mathis_Benguigui. Sounds like your wiki might be interested in testing out PageTriage. Can you talk a bit about how deletion works on your wiki. For example,

  • do you have speedy deletion? does this just add one tag to a page, and then notify the user talk with a template? can you link to the list of tags?
  • do you have deletion nomination discussions? what's the workflow for nominating a page for deletion? similar to speedy deletion, but also needs to create a consensus discussion page somewhere, and perhaps write to a log? can you link to the instructions for this?
  • is redirect deletion a separate process? how does that work? can you link?
  • any other kinds of deletion?

Trying to see how much we would need to tweak PageTriage to get it working on your wiki. Thanks.

Hi @Novem_Linguae, sorry for the delay, I was away for family reasons.

  • Yes, we have speedy deletion, with pages to list on Wikipédia:Demande de suppression immédiate. No notification needed, it is done by a bot.
  • Yes, we also have deletion nomination discussions. Instruction in French are on this help page, and the main steps are:
    • Pages might have the template {{Admissibilité à vérifier}} before the discussion, but it is not mandatory. It should be removed when discussion starts.
    • Any user can open a discussion by inserting the template {{Admissibilité}} on the top of the page.
    • Any page except Special: namespace can be nominated for deletion.
    • The discussion takes place on a talkpage (Discussion: namespace) subpage "/Admissibilité" (e.g. for page "Test", the discussion page would be "Discussion:Test/Admissibilité").
    • The new discussion has to be listed on Wikipédia:Débat d'admissibilité, in current day's section (#{{CURRENTDAY}} {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}}) with the template {{L|name of the page}}
    • Main contributors to the page and linked wikiprojects (namespace Projet:) should be informed of the discussion with the template {{subst:Avertissement débat d'admissibilité|Name of the page}} for classical talkpages and {{Avertissement débat d'admissibilité (Flow)|Name of the page}} for structured discussions talkpages. This can be partially manual: as an example, a gadget we currently commonly use to start and end deletion discussions, named PaStec, shows a list of contributors and wikiprojects with checkboxes to (un)check and a validation button to send messages.
  • No separate process for redirections, classical speedy deletion.
  • No other kind of deletions, or at list not usual ones that would be interested to integrate in the tool.

Please ask if you have any other question.

Copied from T323378, original post by @StevenSun:

Here are some patrolling workflows:

  • Speedy deletion
    1. Place {{Delete}} on the article with reasons. For example: {{Delete|G1|c1=comment for G1}} (G1 is a reason. See other reasons in [NOTE1]. Comment is optional).
    2. Notify article creator with {{subst:db-notice|target=Article Name}}--~~~~ on their talk page.
  • Articles for deletion
    1. Place {{vfd}} on the article with reasons, type and date (See possible types on [NOTE2]). For example: {{Vfd|Reason|Type|date=yyyy-MM-dd}}
      • For redirect page, use {{Vfd|Reason|r|date=yyyy-MM-dd}}
    2. Open a new section and place this subst on today's nomination page ([[Wikipedia:頁面存廢討論/記錄/yyyy/MM/dd]]): {{subst:DRItem | Type = detele (other types see [NOTE3]) | DRarticles = Article Name | Reason = Reasons | To = Target destination to merge into (See [NOTE4]) }}--~~~~
    3. Notify article creator with {{subst:AFDNote|Page Name}}--~~~~ on their talk page.

  • [NOTE1]: Possible reasons are: G1 G2 G3 G5 G8 G10 G11 G12 G13 G14 G15 G16 G17 A1 A2 A3 A5 A6 R2 R3 R5 R6 R7 R8
  • [NOTE2]: a or article for article page. r or redirect for redirect page. wiktionary, quote, book, source, voyage, versity for "This page should be moved to wiktionary, qoute, etc."
  • [NOTE3]: delete for general deletion. fame for notability deletion. merge for request to merge article. vm for request to move to other Wikimedia projects.
  • [NOTE4]:
    • If Type=merge, fill target article name to be merged into in this field.
    • If Type=vm, use following parameter: vmd for wiktionary, vms for wikisource, vmb for wikibooks, vmq for wikiqoute, vmvoy for wikivoyage, or vmv for wikiversity.
