Category talk:Requests for deletion
bifurcation in the RFD space 
I just noticed that there are two special pages listing requests for deletion at Wiktionary.
One (this one) has "Requests_for_deletion" ('d') in its name and URL tag, and the other has "Requests_for_Deletion" ('D').
They have different lists of pages with RFD tags.
I came into ('D') from the Community Portal; I'm still poking around trying to figure out how the ones on ('d') are being categorized there instead of ('D'). I suspect strongly that someone edited the tag template without thinking to merge the pages.
I added the RFD tag to both, but neither is showing up in either list. Which means something is preventing a recursion, though no recursion would exist even with the tag embedded.
I recommend that ('d') be merged into ('D') and ('d') be made a redirect (or that case-checking be turned off, if that's even possible).

I have also noticed the disturbing fact that this talk page (for ('d')) comes up nonexistent roughly 1 out of every 2 times I load it in my browser, including times when I request the edit page for it.
Something is horribly wrong with the database schema for the RFD pages.

(Same user, different IP.) Okay, in the couple of hours since this morning, either the caching problem has been resolved, or the IP I am on now traces through a caching system that doesn't have the problem. Could be either one.
Additionally, I've noticed that the "Categories: Requests for deletion" [sic] notice on each item is the same regardless of which category page (('d') or ('D')) it is actually listed in. They all point to ('d'). Meaning, for instance: Theoton is listed in Category:Requests_for_Deletion, but when you click-through from the link at the bottom of Theoton you will get to Category:Requests_for_deletion.
And just now I notice that if I put the phrase "Category:Requests for deletion" in square brackets (with either capitalization) it disappears entirely from the served presentation.

- My apologies if I never explained myself when I started the "Rfd" page. This was done because the small "d" is more consistent with title format principles. The "RfD" page should eventually be phased out. When the remaining links have been cleared up, it will be deleted. It just seemed like unnecessary work to transfer the material.
- The template was changed to link with "Rfd", and in theory every article that already included that template should also have been relinked automatically. The fact that this did not happen is a bug in the system. Eclecticology 20:47, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)
There was an rfd tag on abairte but there was no discussion on Request for deletion page. Neither was there any indication anywhere about why this was listed. The contributor, who was only here for a week, and who seemed primarily interested in Irish language words, put the tag on his own word. It is apparently a perfectly good genitive singular of a word, and he may have been under the impression that we don't maintain entries for inflections. I don't really know.
It is a big help when somebody adds an rfd tag if they give us some clue about why they are doing so. Eclecticology 18:51:34, 2005-07-29 (UTC)
Missing requests 
Of the 191 pages (right now) in this category, I think there are quite a few that have never been listed, particularly the appendices and the templates. Please help by clicking on the blue + to nominate the pages individually. Mglovesfun (talk) 07:02, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
