Deletion Nomination Dates
This list is for personal reference only. It helps me keep track of how long articles have been nominated for. I will not delete articles less than 1 month after nomination without good reason.
Importing / Writing articles and new conventions
All articles need to be written using the correct wiki style - see the Templates section (under 'Development') for a list of the templates on the new wiki. Select any of the templates to view documentation on using that template.
Articles which are not rewritten to an acceptable standard will be deleted after 2 weeks. (Here "acceptable standard" means the article looks something like a proper wiki article and not something that has simply been copied and pasted from elsewhere. It doesn't need to be perfect).
Please also check the indexes to see that the article doesn't already exist under a new name.
The following are my personal admin policies for the wiki. They are currently guidelines only.
Deletion of Articles
Unless an article is obviously spam or vandalism of some description, it will first be nominate for deletion. Nominated articles will be reviewed at no less than 1 month from the date of nomination. If the reasons for nomination have been fixed, the nomination will be removed and the article kept. If the reasons for nomination have not been fixed, and there has been no significant effort towards fixing the article, then it will be deleted.
Under Development Articles
Articles that are marked as under development for more than 2 months with no significant work will be reviewed. If the article is worth keeping, the Under Development status will be removed and the article will remain. If the article is deemed not worth keeping, the Under Development status will be kept and the article will be nominated for deletion. Normal deletion rules then apply.
