Doom Wiki:Information removal requests


This page is an official log of personality rights issues and measures taken to resolve them. See the talk page for information on requests that were handled before the establishment of this formal logging procedure.


Requested removal of real name; name was removed but user declined use of revision suppression. --SpiderMastermind (talk) 10:01, 30 September 2015 (CDT)

In June 2018, the real name was added again. --Xymph (talk) 16:03, 21 September 2018 (CDT)

Dark Exodus[edit]

Requested removal of all instances of real name. I investigated Doomworld's source for this information and could not verify that it was obtained by them in good faith - forum threads there and on the copy of Doom Wad Station do not contain the name anywhere. Person in question also contacted me personally from an email with the same name and was sincere about having the information removed. Revision suppression was applied to the following pages:

  • Dark Exodus - Contained real name and information about subsequent page moves.
  • User talk:DarkExodus - Name was inadvertently added to revision log on initial request.
  • Talk:Doomguy 2000 - Historical thread about deletion of the article. Some intervening unrelated revisions became collateral damage due to containing the name as well.
