Re. the nomination by 126.96.36.199 to delete this article:
- Delete. An internet search shows this "person"(?) on a half dozen other wikis with similar self-promotional nonsense. Also, the so-called new wiki was already removed. That user page is also ripe for deletion. --Xymph (talk) 02:56, 15 October 2019 (CDT)
- Delete. Could technically fall under speedy delete 8. Inappropriate use of user pages - I think we were initially waiting to see if this person was legitimate and might reform. --Quasar (talk) 08:03, 17 October 2019 (CDT)
- RyanW, your wrapping of broken links to the aforementioned wiki may well be according to established policy, but in this case I would be in favor of completely deleting all that 'breaking news' spam. Taking out the trash entirely leaves a cleaner result than just tidying it up a litte. --Xymph (talk) 16:02, 27 October 2019 (CDT)
- The only reason I made any of those edits is that permanent 404s decrease Google rank, whether inbound or outbound (per this project). I doubt I will invent a systematic solution to 404s, but I'm examining cases where I'd previously agreed to help, and I happened to know about this situation also, having been involved in addressing the user.
- There has never been an established policy about altering user pages or old posts. For many years, only a ToU violation was considered a sufficient reason, and even then, admins normally didn't act unless it was pharmaceutical spam or something equally blatant. Irrespective of this user's behavior, deleting the page for "cleanliness" is prioritizing process over people, which is a habit we need to break or we won't have enough people to maintain the site.
