Proposed deletion of List of U.S. state cactiEdit

 

The article List of U.S. state cacti has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Texas did not declare a state cactus, but made a cactus the state plant. Effectively, this is a list with one entry. Alternative, Colorado could be added to List of U.S. state and territory plants and botanical gardens, but it is already a bit of a mashup.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Nomination of List of U.S. state cacti for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of U.S. state cacti is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of U.S. state cacti until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

I saw that you considered that other states might designate a state cactus. They might not. I appreciate your further input. BiologicalMe (talk) 16:57, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Sir Vartan Melkonian: Draft declinedEdit

Hello! I recently worked on a draft for an Armenian man, Sir Vartan Melkonian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Vartan_Melkonian). As you can see, my submission was declined for not adhering to a neutral POV and for lacking sources to support his notability. As I am a new Wiki user, I would appreciate the help of more experienced editors in the resubmission process. I saw you have an interest in Armenia, as do I, and it would be great to raise visibility of Armenians in an otherwise Euro-centric space. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PinkElixir (talkcontribs) 03:26, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi! If you have any ideas of how to vouch for the notability of this individual, I would appreciate any help. PinkElixir (talk) 22:14, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Flags on userboxesEdit

I've tried to clone {{User in Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol}} from {{User in Lombardy}} but the flag on Commons is at File:Flag of Trentino-South Tyrol.svg and I can't figure out how to customise the name of the flag to be not derived from the page name - any ideas?Le Deluge (talk) 15:16, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I fixed the flag, I believe, but you should not have a slash (/) in the template name. It will cause all sorts of problems. See WP:NC-SLASH for a little more information. I recommend moving the page to a name with a hyphen or redirecting to {{User in Trentino-South Tyrol}}, which already exists. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:42, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

Template:RegcatsEdit

Hi, I stumbled across template:Regcats. It seems to be obsolete. May I redirect it to template:Uir which appears to have incorporated and superseded it?

Category:User category templates could also be deleted under WP:G7 if you agree. – Fayenatic London 21:33, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

That would be fine with me. Yours aye,  Buaidh  talk contribs 04:59, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Thanks –   Done. I found that one user was using the template after all, so I subst'd his userpage categories. – Fayenatic London 23:13, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Punjab (Pakistan) templatesEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:Punjab (Pakistan) templates requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Liz Read! Talk! 03:57, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
