Brian HeidikEdit

I just found out the article was re-created soon after AFD. Do you think it's similar to deleted revisions of the article? Speaking of revision, I wonder whether you can un-delete them. George Ho (talk) 18:12, 7 November 2022 (UTC)

Going back to the 2017 versions of the article, they are different from one another. I don't think a refund here is warranted. The only value would be for attribution of any existing content from the deleted version which I'm not seeing much of any, especially when comparing it to the 2022 version.

I already requested undeletion at WP:REFUND; the request was fulfilled. George Ho (talk) 20:47, 8 November 2022 (UTC)

Hello @Mkdw I recently created Draft:Darwin Del Fabro, about a queer Brazilian actor and was hoping that you or another member of WP:Theatre would be kind enough to take a look and let me know how it could be improved. Or, if it looks ok, to move it to the mainspace. Thank you in advance for your help and consideration Volcom95 (talk) 21:43, 11 October 2022 (UTC) Volcom95 (talk) 19:26, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
