No discussion is needed to revive this page; simply remove the {{inactive}} tag and bring it up to date.
Deletion archives are kept to assist sysops in determining if an entry should be immediately deleted, as most invalid terms are repeat entries; the community's time should not be wasted rehashing previous determinations.
Please do not post new comments on these pages.


To make it easier to find bad-faith recreations, valid bluelinks are struck out.

    • Topics will be listed when the archive is closed.


From 2008 to 2009, deleted pages have been automatically archived to Wiktionary:Previously deleted entries and its subpages.

Current procedure[edit]

The current procedure is to archive the RFD discussion to the corresponding article's talk page.

How to archive[edit]

  1. Add the archive link to this page. Page names are standardised; the code to add for April 2014 is:
    * [[/2014/04|April]]
  2. Save, and click the link to create the page. Copy and paste the following into the page:
    {{archive-header|April 2014}}
  3. Save; the archive is now created. To add entries, simply cut and paste them from the main page to the archive.
  4. Optional: List the discussions on this page. This can be quickly done by copy and pasting the table of contents to this page, and then copy and pasting   |   between each heading name. (This will eventually be done automatically.)
