Requests for deletions
Items which do not meet Wikidata's notability policy can be deleted. Please nominate items for deletions on this page under the "Requests" section below. If it is obvious vandalism, just add the page here (gadget available), or ping an administrator to delete it. Contact can also be made with an administrator in #wikidata connect.

Before deleting items, check to ensure that they are not in use. This can be easily done with the "links" link below the header of each request.

Do not try to pre-emptively delete an item because its page is up for deletion on a Wikimedia project. The link will be removed by bots and reported here in the future if a deletion takes place.

Please use {{Q}} the first time you mention an item. Unless you use the gadget, please also ping the item's creator in your request (or ping the bot operator, when appropriate) if 1) the user is still active on Wikidata and 2) the user has contributed the majority of information in that item.

Please use Wikidata:Properties for deletion if you want to nominate a property for deletion.

This is not the place to request undeletion. Please use Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard instead. If help is needed with the merging of items, see the instructions at Help:Merge.

On this page, old requests are archived, if they are marked with {{Deleted}}. An overview of all archives can be found at this page's archive index. The current archive is located at January 21.

Example biographiesEdit


example biography (Q29962164): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

I would just delete it but there seems to be some external (mis)use. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 07:12, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

  On hold This item is linked from 2 others. --DeltaBot (talk) 07:20, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
@Kjetil r: You should use Wikidata Sandbox (Q4115189), Second Wikidata sandbox (Q13406268) or for this purpose or take advantage of arbitrary access and create a real-world example. --Pasleim (talk) 13:02, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
I suppose Wikidata Sandbox (Q4115189) and/or Second Wikidata sandbox (Q13406268) could be used in some cases, but we also have a legitimate need for having a semi-stable dummy item that could be used for documentation purposes. I don't know very well, but is it really suitable for such use cases? For example, the birth date and death date of [1] do not appear in the infobox at [2]. Regards, Kjetil_r (talk) 15:25, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
This item doesn't seem to be used on anymore. @Kjetil_r: Can you confirm? --Pasleim (talk) 13:03, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

It is being used for test, development, and documentation purposes on no.wikipedia. Isn't that within scope for what we can do? Regards, Kjetil_r (talk) 13:41, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

@Matěj Suchánek, Kjetil_r: I am not sure, but wouldn't Douglas Adams (Q42) (or something else) be better as an example? Bencemac (talk) 14:07, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

I need an example item where I can add or remove data at will when I work on making changes to infoboxes. I can't really do that to Douglas Adams (Q42). Regards, Kjetil_r (talk) 14:39, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Keep both. As Kjetil_r has demonstated, these serve sensible on-wiki software development and documentation purposes that actual biographies or Wikidata sandbox aren't sufficient for. Deryck Chan (talk) 13:19, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

~410 Azerbaijani filmsEdit

(Those items are listed at User:Pasleim/Items for deletion/Page deleted/Archive/2017/10 or User:Pasleim/Items for deletion/Page deleted/Archive/2017/11.)
There are ~410 items about Azerbaijani films whose only sitelinks were deleted by azwiki admin User:Vusal1981 in October/November 2017. There are no identifiers, links, or references on the items, and they have barely been touched in the past 14 months by editors (as it happens to most abandoned items). As I have no idea where I can lookup information about them, I’d like to ask the community whether anyone can rescue these items so that they meet the notability requirements, or whether they shall be deleted as non-notable items. —MisterSynergy (talk) 08:28, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

  • We used to have more of them. I don't think they were based on an online resource. I vaguely recall discussing them with a contributor to that wiki. I don't recall who that was though. Obviously, it would be good to keep them, but that would need a reference to confirm them. --- Jura 08:39, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

shining flapwort (Q60617107): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs)

@Llywelyn2000: For me it isn't clear that shining flapwort (Q60617107) and Jungermannia paroica (Q15348443) are identical. Can you elaborate? --Pasleim (talk) 09:12, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
As I understand, Solenostoma paroicum/shining flapwort is synonymic to Jungermannia paroica. --Wolverène (talk) 08:37, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Added the statement "Said to be the same as": [3], [4]. What do you think? --Wolverène (talk) 08:34, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Ujawniając dane osobowe oskarżonego narażamy się, zgodnie z polskim prawem, na proces o ochronę dóbr osobistych. Z tego co wiem, sąd nie zezwolił na publikację wizerunku oskarżonego. --Nurni (talk) 07:19, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

  Comment & weak   Keep We can always change it to "Stefan W." as per Polish press law. I just wonder how does that translate onto US laws under which Wikimedia operates? Holek (talk) 16:39, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, there is the GDRP (I think that is the right initials) and the "Right to be forgotten" that some people believe over rule "US laws which Wikimedia operates" because the information is available (via the web) in the UK. Lazypub (talk)
"Right to be forgotten" is one part of the GDPR and GDPR overrules US laws if the consumer's place of residence is in the EU. However, the right to be forgotten shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information (GDPR, Article 17, para. 3 [5]). --Pasleim (talk) 09:50, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
  Keep Consent is only one of six possible ways for processing to be lawful under GDPR. Under processing (e)is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest it's possible to process data in the public interest. Wikidata exists for the public interest and not for private interests. ChristianKl❫ 17:01, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
  Keep see Wikidata:General disclaimer#Jurisdiction and legality of content. Bencemac (talk) 13:18, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
  Keep. Wikidata is most probably under the jurisdiction of the US state of Florida where the Wikidata servers are. And sooner or later the Polish government will reveal his name officially (seems it's the secret just during the time of investigation?), so I don't see problem. --Wolverène (talk) 08:48, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Category:Footballers by nationality and all subcategoriesEdit

I strongly doubt that this is a useful way of organizing footballer items. Categorizing items on the talk pages does not seem like the way to go, and the emptyness of many subcategories shows that it is not widely used. Steak (talk) 09:28, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
