Deletion Candidates

  • Montsegma -this article has an incorrect title and a correct page now exists. Can confirm error having checked the source materia. Article Montsegnur is correct. GGCrick (talk) 15:05, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Zarath -this article has an incorrect title and a correct page exists. Elon 22:06 26 November 2014(GMT0
I agree with Acidface: it is poorly written and badly sourced. Anyway, shouldn't the main article have a singular title (and not plural)? --Jacob Sterlov 04:22, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Instead of deletion page has been redirected to Close Combat Weapons (also, some of the game mechaincs related text has been removed from that page). Thelemur 02:18, 21 February 2012 (CET)
It does not depend on what is used more often, but what makes more sense. "Space Marine Scout" is the correct title, therefore the content from the Squad page should be moved there. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 12:19, 5 October 2011 (CEST)

Maybe, but there are no Assault Marine or Tactical Marine or Devastator Marine pages, just redirects to the Assault Squad, Devastator Squad and Tactical Squad. It would make more sense to keep in line with these 3 articles and get rid of Space Marine Scout. NTC3 12:34, 5 October 2011 (CEST)

All of these cases are mistakes. Normally we always refer to the single unit, I mean for example we dont name the article Leman Russ Squadron either. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 12:36, 5 October 2011 (CEST)
  • Shadow Knight (Novel) - Article was incorrect as Shadow Knight is actually a short story. Created correct article. This one is no longer needed.
    • Changed to redirect rather than deleting - some other pages still link to the article under it's old title. Thelemur 20:14, 20 February 2012 (CET)
      • Incorrect titles should be fixed by moving, not copy / pasting into a new article, because the former preserves edit histories while the latter loses them. This makes comparing old versions (e.g. to revert vandalism that didn't get noticed straight away) much harder. Also, on wikis that use content licences like the GFDL which mandate crediting all authors, it causes a legal problem (the copyright status of contributed text here seems very vague, though).

  • File:Blackstone Fortress.png - is an unused duplicate of Blackstone Fortress.jpg
  • User:Hairy_Dude/QuoteBox - test page, no longer needed. Is there a speedy deletion process for this kind of thing? Hairy Dude 03:56, 19 March 2013 (CET)
  • Lexicanum:Sourcing_(old): Article is superseded by Lexicanum:Citation.--Prattlebarge 07:33, 11 May 2013 (CEST)
  • Demetrius: Has been sitting around in the junk pile for a while. Only extant information on character is having a quote attributed to him. Is listed under known (Notable) Warmasters, and that's really more than sufficient.--Prattlebarge 08:19, 5 June 2013 (CEST)
  • Lexicanum:Naming conventions: Page is protected, but currently a dead end. Could be used as a redirect to "Lexicanum:Naming Conventions" or deleted. --Prattlebarge 14:24, 12 June 2013 (CEST)
