  • Delete If I am to believe the en.wikipedia definition of handwavium (here and here), the article describes situations where handwavium could possibly be found, without actually saying what handwavium is. Also, to name Mohammed or Prime Minster John Howards' hair as example of handwavium is either offensive or funny, but not encyclopedic. Write a wiktionary definition if you will, but not based on this article. --Rimshot 10:40, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

King of Germany (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

I moved King of Germany to König von Deutschland. The latter is the title of a German song, the first its literal translation. I don't think anyone would search for "King of Germany" to find the song. Therefore, King of Germany is not needed anymore Rimshot 13:57, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Done. I also repaired the for template. --Rimshot 09:54, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Redirect to Kaiser. When I think of "King of Germany", I immediately think of the the Kaiser of Germany. If I were someone who didn't know English well or didn't know history well, I might search for information about the King of Germany actually looking for Kaiser. I believe that a redirect to Kaiser would be appropriate or perhaps a disambiguous page. Browne34 14:42, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Center for Advanced Techologies

Center for Advanced Techologies (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

This page has stood there as a straight copy of the intro paragraphs from en.wikipedia for two months now. No progress has been made on making this a simple wikipedia page. Rimshot 18:59, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Delete per WP:NOTABILITY - Google search for Centre for Advanced Technologies has no hits relevant to the article's context; article. The education notability is further questioned by the fact that the subject is in a Secondary school, rather than a University which further questions the integrity and notability of the CfAT. Finally, the article's deletion can be justified by WP:BASE - if the article does turn out to be worth a space on our servers, it can be added when we have all of our primary articles up to standard.
Anthonycfc (talkconnect)  19:06, 4 February 2007 (UTC)</span>

Keep I'm incline to vote keep because of the ramblings about 'primary articles, blah blah'. This kind of talk just scares people away from SE Wikipedia because they feel their article is unwanted. Xania 01:22, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Delete I have nominated the article, and now that some more days have gone by I still think it should be deleted. Someone copied it here in the hopes that someone else would do the hard work of simplifying it. That hasn't happened, and now I think it is time for the article to go. On the topic of notability: the subject matter of the article does not seem notable enough to make up for its shortcomings. --Rimshot 12:19, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Kikyo, Kagome, Naraku, and other InuYasha characters

Kikyo (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

My thoughts on InuYasha character pages: There have been a number of pages on InuYasha characters added to SE lately. I would like to suggest that a single page be created called List of InuYasha characters and that the following pages be deleted and the information on them be moved to the new "List" page: Kikyo, Kagome, Naraku, Onigumo, Midoriko, Sango, Miroku, Kirara, and Shippo. I would also suggest that the information on Shikon no Tama be merged into the main InuYasha article. It seems unnecessary to have pages on each of the characters. English Wikipedia has a page for each individual character, but Simple English Wikipedia is not another English Wikipedia and I think that a list page would allow us to have the information while not dedicating too much time and energy to a topic that is not among the most important for a developing encyclopedia to have. Tygartl1 17:35, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

I have no overview of the current situation; at the least a common category looks appropriate (if it is not already there). The merging of smaller articles into bigger ones also seems logical; since I do not know how simple (or complex) inuYasha is, I cannot judge what to merge where. -- Eptalon 22:51, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Half of the articles linked above are already longer than the average simple wikipedia article. They are written in rather simple English, even if it is not perfect. Also, they are already categorized under Category:InuYasha. A combined article, I think, might become too long. As it stands now, I vote to keep the articles, because deleting or merging them would not benefit simple.wikipedia. Rimshot 19:17, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Keep Large articles. What's the problem? Xania 01:22, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Nasal hair (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Direct copy from en.wikipedia Rimshot 20:56, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Delete because it is a copy from en.wikipedia. Unless someone wants to rewrite of course, but I don't think we want to encourage the copying of complete articles from en.wikipedia.Rimshot 20:58, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Rewrite or delete. It seems notable enough to keep but if it's not simplified it should go. Tygartl1 17:14, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep + Simplify: keep - the article does seem valid to be included in an online encyclopedia, and therefore passes the basic principle of WP:NOTABILITY; however, I also suggest simplify - the article is clearly copied and pasted, word-for-word, direct from w:en:Nasal hair, and therefore does not conform to simple english.

  • Delete - WP:NOTABILITY: Google search for Acker move returns no results related to tennis; Google search for Acker, Tennis returns a blog result, per comment above. Therefore, the article clearly fails notability and does not constitute an article on simple or any wikipedia.

  • Keep the rewrite. I will remove the RfD Friday evening, if there are no more votes. Rimshot 19:31, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep - enough Google hits to demonstrate notability; article is clearly high enough quality to deserve a place on our encylopedia. The fact that the article is benefiting, and is a pride of, the encyclopedia (in that it is not a stub) is enough for us to keep the article.

Looks like an advertisement. What is needed is an article on cremation not an article on one particular way of processing the remains. Also, precisely the same text can be found on en.wikipedia. Rimshot 12:58, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Create cremation, rewrite memorial diamonds and merge into cremation article. Tygartl1 15:23, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Update: I have created a page for cremation and included info about what to do with the remains, including turning them into diamonds. It's just a stub for now, since I didn't include any of the religious reasons and rules about cremation but it's a start. Tygartl1 16:15, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

"...having a hue does nothing to restrict the brilliant fire flashes and sparkle associated with diamonds..."
--paragraph II
This is a clear attempt to brush aside the negative issues assosiated with the process, therefore qualifying as a WP:NPOV-violating advertisement. Ergo, I vote delete this article.

Jecht (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

There is no Final Fantasy X page yet. We don't need a page on a character from a game without a page. I would suggest that a FFX page gets created with a section on characters. Tygartl1 16:49, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Comment: it appears the Jecht article (along with Spira) was created once before by User:JarlaxleArtemis. Last time he simply copied the text from en:wp. He was warned that if it was not simplified, it would be deleted. I still argue that we do not need it in a simplified version until after FFX has a page (and only then if the page becomes too long with character info). Tygartl1 19:21, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Jonathan Bowers (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Questionable notablility. No page exists. Reasonably high google hits, but it is a fairly common name. Hits on this precise person tend to be self-genereated. -- Creol(talk) 13:09, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Comment, he had an article on English Wikipedia but it was nominated for deletion twice (first nomination (group nomination), closed as no consensus; second nomination, closed as delete). I also found en:Bowers style acronym, which appears to be related but was deleted after it was nominated for deletion. J Di 15:56, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete - Google search for Jonathan Bowers receives the following: (i) Blog mentioning him; (ii) Simple's actual article; (iii) w:en Wikipedian's subpage on it; (iv)'s article on him...which was forked from Wikipedia anyway. Considering they are all either on Wikipedia English's space (where the article was deleted anyway), on Simple which can therefore be discounted, or on a fork of the discounted article, I nominate deletion on the grounds of Notability. Anthonycfc [TC] 13:40, 28 January 2007 (UTC) 13:40, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
  • This is actually hard to tell; a first glance would point to in the direction of a vanity page, an article created to glorify the work of someone hardly noticeable. This guy seems to be a store worker interested in certain fields of maths. As outlined by Anthony_cfc, all relevant pages are either blog entries, copies of pages from Wikipedia, or self-created pages. I see (in the first pages of google hits, no pages of academic publication houses or universities. Whatever this person did, it has not yet been noticed by the academic community. So either it is not worth their effort or time (aka. Notability), or this person is a newly emerging star of maths (who has not yet had his breakthrough; in which case this would classify as original work). In either case, the vote would be to delete the article. --Eptalon 15:07, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Full English Wikipedia (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Appears to be a neologism, I've never seen or heard this name for English Wikipedia used by anybody before and there are not many Google hits.

All of Category:Definitions, along with the category itself

WP:NOT a dictionary. This was brought up in a previous RfD, but this is intended to be more of a centralized discussion on these articles. PullToOpenTalk 01:06, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Keep,delete, and template - The cat itself was never meant to be created. It was just being used as a tool for cleanup. That being said, it is a useful way of dealing with articles. A "This article is a defintion..." template along the lines of other clean up templates (Wikify/Cleanup/Unsimp) with the category may be needed here. The articles themselves are a bit tougher as many are BE 850. Keep for the BE 850 (and any core articles), Delete with move to simp:wikt for the others (with complete re-editting of all pages linking to the articles changing them from here to wikt - 500+edits likely and new ones as pages get added to the list that needs moved). There are likely a couple hundred more articles that will also be affected here since the category is nowhere close to a full listing of articles that are a mere definition. -- Creol(talk) 02:35, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Delete This doesn't make any sense. If it is being a cleanup tool, then you need to make a template seperately and sort it out from there. Jordanhatch 21:07, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
The process of moving purely definition pages to wikt, relinking all links to the former pages and removing the pages is under way. Currently this category is the one being worked on. The category:dictionary definitions which is added as part of the dicdef template will be next and then any listing from the move to wiktionary template will be handled. The page User:Creol/Wiktionary lists which items have been deleted and which items are on the requests for definitions page at simple:wikt. Certain pages in the categories are capable of being expanded and steps are being taken to ensure those get atleast a basic expansion to full stub status rather than dicdef status. -- Creol(talk) 10:52, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Delete. The main article for the Simpsons is little more than a stub with a list of character names. It doesnt make sence to create articles for individual episodes if the show itself has so little information. Also since none of the main characters have articles, a very minor character such as Tatum would not be considered notable. An article with a list of simpson episodes is one thing (and given the length of series, it may take more than one if brief discriptions are included), but individual articles would be too much at this point. -- Creol(talk) 02:04, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep If we haven't "gotten" to the point where we can make article for individual episodes then why not start now? Wikipedia SE is constantly growing and this kind of thing is catered for on Wikipedia English so why not here? Xania 16:28, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Simple English Wikipedia is not another English Wikipedia. Simple English Wikipedia is currently focusing on articles on the most common subjects. Also, as Creol pointed out, the series' article is already very short and provides little information. Articles about episodes can wait until the article about the series provides enough information that we as editors don't have to assume that the reader already knows who is who and what is what.

  • Thanks a lot Xania. --La gloria è a dio 18:10, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree that wikipedia simple is not another wikipedia. We should not be writing about things only well known in one area. The simpsons is not just in english. It is also well known in non-english speaking countries and that is why your comment is not a good reason to delete it. --La gloria è a dio 19:44, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

It is claimed that pope John IX died that year, information which looks false. There is little else useful information on the page, hence we might delete it. -- Eptalon 21:10, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Delete John IX was pope until 900, when he died (unexpectedly); Steven VI(I) was pope 928-931 (Difference in numbering is because Pope Steven was made pope, but died before his ordination as a bishop). In short, the information given on that page is probably false. Given there is little else useful info here, page might as well be removed. -- Eptalon 21:10, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete Looking at all pages linking to 929 and the page for it, 929 was a very slow year. No actual pages (only 2 lists) link data and even can only come up with 3 events, and not the one we have listed which is obviously wrong. -- Creol(talk) 22:48, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep Just because nothing happened doesn't it make it less of a year. The year still happened. Why can't we copy the things from 03:18, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
I think this is not about just keeping or deleting; it is about putting things right, too. As outlined, no pope died in 929. There are enough years we already have "were nothing happened". So far, general agreement was to have one cat for 10 years, or even per century, to avoid empty cats. A cat only makes sense when there are a few articles in it. By the looks of things, this catgory could be repalced by 920s, which would combine with 924 --Eptalon 13:17, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep and rewrite The year still existed and it is very likely that things did happen in it. Maybe rewrite from the english wikipedia's article. Ksbrowntalk 22:38, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I am nominating the redirect page to be deleted because it is a misspelling. --ﺵ¤ΑΒΓΕΖΗΘΙΚΛΜΝΞΟΠΡΣΤΥΦΧΨΩΩΩ 23:27, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Speedy delete. I've moved the article from courgrette to zucchini, which is where it was before it was moved. Courgette, the correct spelling, already redirects to zucchini. Putting "courgrette" into Google returns only 425 hits, so the redirect can be speedy deleted as an implausible typing error. J Di 00:02, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Weak keep Yes, I am aware of it being a mis-spelling (I deleted, and restored it). IMO it does not take up much space, and could serve (as a redirect) now and then. Of course, if the broad opinion is to delete, I'll re-delete the redirecting page. --Eptalon 00:43, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete I had no idea what a zucchini was but I've since found out that it's the American word for courgette. This page should be deleted as I can't understand why anyone would misspell courgette as courgrette unless they're really stupid. Xania 22:31, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

  • the vibrator page lists a total of 11 different kinds of vibrators. It is currently about 1.5 screens (of my screen, 1280x1024) in length. It consists of one section of text, and many kinds of lists, and quite a few images. The pages in discussion above, are each about one screen in length, have many images, and mostly text, to explain things. Few to no lists. Therefore I think that merging the two pages above into the vibrator page would probably best suit the needs. The pages, and their history, would continue to exist, but they would be redirects to the vibrator page. This would make the vibrator page more important too. Not merging the pages might lead to 9 other one-screen articles about a certain type of vibrator. Sure, vibrators are non-core, but if people have fun writing about them, let them do it. This project can use any editor available. And this is probably too long to simply say merge. --Eptalon 21:49, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
