I think perhaps there should be some convergence of this effort and the AFD system. Perhaps we should consult ASchlafly on what he things would be best? --BillOReillyFan 18:10, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Its mostly a convenience thing, articles that obviously need to be erased, its much quicker to toss a template for speedy then the existing AFD. Not to mention that it keeps the AFD from getting clogged with vandalism and silly junk. Tmtoulouse 18:11, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

You should take this up with him, I envisioned this as the sort of thing that non-Admins can use to report obvious vandalism (e.g. "poop"). --Hojimachongtalk 18:12, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
Then perhaps the best idea would be to have a two tier system: CID (Candidate for immediate deletion) and PCD (Possible Candidate for Deletion) --BillOReillyFan 18:14, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
I think we already have that? AFD is akin to PCD, and Speedy is akin to CID, is it not? --Hojimachongtalk 18:15, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
Perhaps. I just thought we could make it more organized and clear. "Speedy" by itself is kind've ambiguous. --BillOReillyFan 18:17, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
Eh, its a term with a long history on wiki's I think its more clear then most other names. Tmtoulouse 18:19, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
I think it will work best as you described. If it is obvious junk, stick on the speedy and an admin can take care of it all later, anything other then junk should use the existing AFD. Tmtoulouse 18:13, 18 March 2007 (EDT)


I am author of the Venona series in Wikipedia. Many of the nearly 300 articles in that series have been systematically vandalized and censored. Ware group is one of the early articles, and the current WP version may be very similiar to the version I authored which was brought over here. Can we take this one off the speedy list? Thank you.

There's at least one item here from May. File:User Fox.png Fox (talk|contribs) 18:37, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

Conservative hysteria

I think the article can be saved. Obviously, the article as it was was vandalism, but there actually is something to be said for some conservatives going overboard about certain things real or imagined. The first thing that popped into my mind was backwards masking. There was a huge amount of conservative hysteria about it in the 80s and there still is some today in some circles. Another target of conservative hysteria is roleplaying games - Dungeons and Dragons in particular. Patricia Pulling was probably the blueprint for conservative hysteria.

As conservatives, we should not be afraid to admit that these things happened. Jinxmchue 13:25, 18 December 2007 (EST)

I agree. Obviously these events are not representative of all Conservatives views, not by a long shot - but on the other hand, not all Liberals adhere to the views listed in Liberal Hysteria. Written properly, and making appropriate distinctions, a Conservative Hysteria article would seem perfectly appropriate. Feebasfactor 15:11, 18 December 2007 (EST)

Date articles

Are all agreed that the date articles marked {{speedy}} should be deleted? I might assign this task to EdBot. --Ed Poor Talk 08:12, 17 November 2008 (EST)

They were all created by the same user, and none of them seems to have ever contained any important information, so I agree that they should be deleted. Plus I would like to see EdBot in action.--CPalmer 08:24, 17 November 2008 (EST)
I haven't programmed it to delete pages yet, but in my spare time I can probably do that. --Ed Poor Talk 08:44, 17 November 2008 (EST)
