Replacement filing cabinet.svg This page is no longer active. It is being kept for historical interest.
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.

Current procedure[edit]

These archives are no longer maintained. The current procedure is to archive the RFD discussion to the corresponding article's talk page. Note that talk pages containing such discussions are preserved even if the associated article is deleted. To reach a talk page for a deleted article, in Wiktionary's search box, type talk: followed by the word or phrase in question. For example, talk:get behind.


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




(Topic lists to come when someone can be bothered to add them.)


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

How to archive[edit]

  1. Add the archive link to this page. Page names are standardised; the code to add for November 2017 is:
    * [[/2017/11|November]]
  2. Save, and click the link to create the page. Copy and paste the following into the page:
    {{archive-header|November 2017}}
  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.)
