You Deleted My Page[edit]

Hello --

I recently logged in to see that Crexendo®'s Wikipedia page, that I created at the request of the CEO, was deleted. I am responsible for this page and am an employee of the organization. Feel free to check my LinkedIn. (Chris Schumacher Senior Content Marketing Manager at Crexendo). I need to know how to fix this. Please help me.

I see Rosguill is already addressing the conflict of interest issue on your talk page. As to the rest, there isn't much to be done here. When the community decides that the topic you wrote about isn't notable, really your only option is to move on. Vanamonde (Talk) 22:26, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Our old page, which was recently updated, was taken down as well with that. Is there any way that we can have the old page restored before it was updated/edited? Clschumacherr (talk) 20:33, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What page are you referring to? Vanamonde (Talk) 23:04, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The original Crexendo® Wiki page. It was was edited due to severely outdated information, which is why it was updated, but it's better to be visible rather than deleted forever. Is restoring it possible? Clschumacherr (talk) 00:16, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to receive a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!

Grammar mistakes in close?[edit]

In your close of Murray Rothbord bibliography, I think you meant " The arguments to delete are both numerical" instead of keep. Normally am AfD closer comment shouldn’t be edited, but here may be worth making a common sense edit. ~ 🦝 Shushugah (he/him • talk) 18:41, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Indeed, thanks. Fixed. Vanamonde (Talk) 18:51, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Minor feedback[edit]

I'm not sure it's worth mentioning, but I question your reasoning in your close at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of restaurants in Hungary. Your statement there was "The result was keep‎. There is consensus that the list may serve a valid navigational purpose iff clear inclusion criteria are set out; there are many comments here suggesting that only wiki-notable restaurants be included, but determining the criteria is out of scope here. Were this article to balloon into a list full of non-notable entries, the arguments for deletion would carry a lot more weight. Vanamonde (Talk) 17:09, 31 May 2023 (UTC)"

  • I disagree with the "iff" part, if by that you mean the mathematical expression "if and only if". Several persons agree that the list is valid for navigational purposes, whether or not there are clear inclusion criteria.
  • I disagree that if the article ballooned, that that would add any credence to it being deletion-worthy. That would only justify editing it down, or tagging it, or having discussion at the Talk page.

I personally think that this AFD and many others like it about lists of things, which are sublists of world-wide lists like List of restaurants should be immediately closed as administrative matters, because it is patently obvious they are part of a valid list-system.

About this one, there was no way in hell that it could be closed "delete" (if it were, that would be disputed at deletion review). Your closure seems to me to suggest to participants, unhelpfully, that there was any merit at all to the nomination and reasons for deletion proffered. Also you did not contradict (which I think you could/should have) several bad ideas that were stated in the deletionists' reasoning.

I do appreciate that you did not choose "no consensus", rather than waffling, and that you made the "right" decision. I hope you take this comment as feedback meant to be helpful. This is important work, and I do appreciate your contribution in applying yourself diligently to this closure and others. --Doncram (talk,contribs) 22:00, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Doncram: Thanks for stopping by. Feedback is always welcome, but FWIW, I used the mathematical expression (and linked it for clarity) intentionally, and I didn't exhaustively debunk bad arguments because those existed on both sides: the contributions of the p-blocked user were almost entirely unhelpful and there were some OSE arguments. With respect to your specific point, a list full of unlinked entries, or an otherwise unsystematic list, doesn't necessarily fulfil a valid navigational purpose, a point which was made at the AfD. Conversely, the arguments for deletion were based in policy, and NOTINDISCRIMINATE in particular carries considerable weight when inclusion criteria are not defined well. I suppose I could have made it slightly clearer that there were two different reasons why inclusion criteria were determined to be important. Vanamonde (Talk) 22:13, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Administrators' newsletter – June 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, editors indefinitely site-banned by community consensus will now have all rights, including sysop, removed.
  • As a part of the Wikimedia Foundation's IP Masking project, a new policy has been created that governs the access to temporary account IP addresses. An associated FAQ has been created and individual communities can increase the requirements to view temporary account IP addresses.

Technical news

  • Bot operators and tool maintainers should schedule time in the coming months to test and update their tools for the effects of IP masking. IP masking will not be deployed to any content wiki until at least October 2023 and is unlikely to be deployed to the English Wikipedia until some time in 2024.


  • The arbitration case World War II and the history of Jews in Poland has been closed. The topic area of Polish history during World War II (1933-1945) and the history of Jews in Poland is subject to a "reliable source consensus-required" contentious topic restriction.
