Doom Wiki talk:Information removal requests

Requests predating this procedure[edit]

These shouldn't go on the list to avoid confusion (the "procedure" having been made up on the spot in each case), but here are some I remember.    Ryan W (talk) 17:41, 30 September 2015 (CDT)

  • Thomas Lutrov (Lutrov71): Subject requested deletion of the article, which was granted.  During the later CodeImp discussion, the admin reconsidered and it was undeleted.
  • Pascal vd Heiden (CodeImp): A few editors agitated for the removal of a paragraph about the so-called Trojan controversy.  This eventually came to the attention of the subject, who asked that the article be deleted if we couldn't make up our minds.  Finally the paragraph was taken out on the grounds that it was mostly forum drama, therefore non-encyclopedic.
  • Mike Lightner (Mancubus II): Subject requested removal of an external link to his blog, which was granted.
  • Category:Mephisto levels: Initially this category used the real name, per our convention.  The subject asked an admin to delete it.  The admin initially declined, pointing out that the name was already publicly available in WAD readmes, but then deleted the category and moved the maps into this one.
  • Ralph Vickers (Ralphis): Subject requested deletion of a photo of himself (having removed it from the article), which was granted.
  • Derek MacDonald (Afterglow): Subject (editing as an IP) removed an external link to his blog.  Multiple admins endorsed this after the fact, saying that the blog wasn't related to Doom and could be incriminating.
