"Badly formatted".

Fragment of a discussion from User talk:CodeCat
Jump to: navigation, search

I've seen Semper delete many entries for that reason. Entries that contain only a definition, no headings or headword-lines. I delete such entries as well. Technically there is usable content if the definition is correct, but if it takes too much time to correct it, it's better to delete it and leave it to the person who actually put it there.

(I'm actually using LQT to respond to this: that's how strongly I feel about it.) I'm absolutely, 100% with Ruakh on this one. If formatting is the only problem, add {{subst:nolanguage}} and/or {{subst:notenglish}} and/or {{rfc}} and or {{attention|xx}}. Never delete good content! If the user is a newbie, then (a) you can expect bad formatting and (b) he may not return to re-add the content — and we'll be out the content.

Tell that to Semper then... I am just doing what he does...

Guess which side I'm on. If you think there is usable content, just restore it and make it into an entry.

Ok, I will just leave these entries as they are then. If nobody else fixes them either then it's not my problem, I'm only following orders.
