Requests for partial deletion[edit]

Option 1: Wiktionary:Requests for deletion[edit]

    Especially for parts of an entry that the editor feels might not meet CFI. —RuakhTALK 03:59, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
    Comment: RFD is big enough with just deletion requests for pages or entrie language sections. DAVilla 05:48, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support Connel MacKenzie 07:03, 9 June 2007 (UTC) The archiving scheme matches perfectly, for senses in particular, while it sometimes seems inadequate for complete entries. The centralized, logical place for deletion discussions is, just like RFV for verifications, a single page.
  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support Cynewulf 16:31, 11 June 2007 (UTC) Status quo.
    I would argue that very few nominations are made this way, and even so the nomination can be hotly debated, hence this vote. Also given that they almost all come from the same contributor, it's really unfair to characterize this as "status quo". {{rfd-redundant}} is changing the character of the existing RFD page, and this option would solidify that change. DAVilla 05:18, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
    You make it sound like rfd-redundant was created yesterday, not six months ago. It's been working fine since then. Why go through the hassle of changing it? I don't see how discussing whether part of an entry is redundant or meets CFI next to discussions about whether a whole entry is sum-of-parts or meets CFI is a significant difference. In fact -- this is exactly parallel to having rfv-sense and rfv go to the same place. Cynewulf 17:09, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
    Six months ago? Wow. And it's been in use for as long, I'd presume? The short life that {{rfd-sense}} had grew out of confusion that probably wouldn't apply today. Even if it isn't widespread, the intent of the related {{rfd-redundant}} is at least very clear. I have to retract what I said about a single contributor though, if only because I realize I'd made a similar sense-type RFD request with apple pie. And what a headache that was. Oh, regret!
    Anyways, I'm glad if I led you to give the vote more thought overall. DAVilla 22:16, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Option 2: Wiktionary:Tea room[edit]
  1. Symbol support vote.svg SupportRuakhTALK 03:59, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
    Especially for parts of an entry that the editor feels might be redundant. —RuakhTALK 03:59, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
    Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- This would seriously change the tenor of the tea room, from a place of thoughtful discussion about word-subtleties, into a keep/delete melee area. --Connel MacKenzie 06:58, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support These sorts of questions are sometimes dealt with a heavier hand than is necessary. Although there will always be a gray area and some dispute, most contributors, if they don't have an appreciation of the finer distinctions, can be trusted not to make revisions that collapse them.

Option 3: Wiktionary:Requests for cleanup[edit]
  1. Symbol support vote.svg SupportRuakhTALK 03:59, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
    Especially for parts of an entry that the editor feels might be redundant. —RuakhTALK 03:59, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
    Comment RFC may be appropriate when it's a true cleanup request, e.g. when it's obvious that someone went on a hashing synonyms rampage or what have you, but in that case it's almost always easier to just clean it up yourself. DAVilla 18:02, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
    Comment: I agree with DAVilla — if it's obviously a cleanup issue, it goes to WT:RFC (but/and in that case, it won't be tagged with {{RFD}}, now will it?). — Beobach972 19:43, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

    Review was an older concept that I was trying to adapt; I think "revision" makes more sense here. DAVilla 03:42, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support. I didn't get what you meant before, but now I understand. :-) —RuakhTALK 05:05, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
    Symbol support vote.svg Support Cynewulf 16:31, 11 June 2007 (UTC) Let's not change the character of currently-existing pages. -- Struck Cynewulf 17:09, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
Abstain[edit]
I'll pretend "abstain" means comments for now. I admit I didn't participate in the Beer Parlour thread, but, looking over this, I think the vote is a bit rushed and maybe misses the point. The question that needs addressing is not where to discuss disputed senses (that's already clear enough, usually) but whether disputed senses that don't encompass an entire page (and therefore don't require an admin to delete anything) still need a community review of some sort, or whether they can be simply edited out by the editor that wishes to do so. If this vote doesn't even include the option to remove the bad sense on your own judgment, I think we need to go back to the discussion stage. Dmcdevit·t 10:00, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
I think you misread the description of the vote, which makes it quite clear that this is about cases where the editor is "not sure, and he'd like to start a wide-input discussion about the possibility of removing that part". When that's not the case, he should of course be bold. It even clarifies that it doesn't remove the possibility of talk-page discussion, if he's not sure about the removal but doesn't think a wide-input discussion is necessary. —RuakhTALK 15:42, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes, they can always be edited by a contributor, but given that a contributor's reputation may depend on such edits, especially incorrect or controversial ones for which they may be reprimanded, this is an entirely applicable scenario and appropriate question. Analogously, as a sysop would like to have some basis for making a deletion decision. In both cases the collective discussion will help keep us all in accord. DAVilla 17:59, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain EncycloPetey 19:48, 4 July 2007 (UTC) I don't quite understand the subtleties of this vote, but I'll trust that the people voting do. --EncycloPetey 19:48, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Decision[edit]

  • With 6 voters in support and 2 not in support (including an abstention), option 1 passes. Any particular section of an entry may be discussed for removal in WT:RFD. The other options each had only 2 voters in suppot. DAVilla 04:10, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
