(in Inglis) Not notable as per Scots Wiki's notability policy (no references). Bangalamania (tauk) 11:01, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Support - the main editors ae the airticle wur Fixer88 an AG (thus has quaistenable Scots), an it's seen mony Inglifaction attempts. A hink gin this airticle will be on this wiki, then it's best stairtin fae scratch CiphriusKane (tauk) 11:13, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Support - (Inglis/English, copied from my talk page) "I don't really have feelings one way or another on the article. I just find it odd that they have an article here but not on enwiki, and because the article was pretty much in English when I saw it I just assumed the article was created on the wrong wiki or something (I didn't know about the Anglicization of the article). In addition, the tone seems very promotional and there are no references whatsoever." --Mondodi (tauk) 12:27, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Support - The subject seems weel kent in some kintras but the airticle is no fundit on references. Monospaced (tauk) 18:42, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Whether an individual likes a specific food is in and of itself a wildly inappropriate reason to make a wiki page. I'm not sure it's even notable enough to be merged. my_hat_stinks (tauk) 19:52, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

  • (in Inglis) (Article creator) Comment: While I totally agree that it looks ridiculous and silly at first, this is not just a case of writing an article about a President's favourite food. George Bush's comment on broccoli was noteworthy at the time and a number of people have analysed his comments more than, for example, Trump's penchant for Diet Cokes, as the sources within that article attest. --Mondodi (tauk) 19:56, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Merge wi George H. W. Bush - Gien hou the GHWB airticle is extremely lackin at the mo, A'm sayin merge. Summat A'm tryin tae push fur is guid braid airticles afore specifics, an this is a guid ensaumple ae a specific airticle faur the braid airticle in quaisten isnae guid CiphriusKane (tauk) 02:56, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
  • (in Inglis) Delete this is not notable for an encyclopedia. Very run-of-the-mill stuff that does not need to be covered at all in an encyclopedia, not even in George H. W. Bush. Wikipedia is not a place for minor, obscure events. ImprovedWikiImprovment (tauk) 13:02, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Merge - Ah've nae strang feelin again deletin it ither but I respect the argument fur it bein viewed politically an weel-remarkt upon. Ah can see hou it cud be includit in George H. W. Bush airticle, it's mibbie no needin the hale text o this airticle thou. Monospaced (tauk) 18:54, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

  • Comment - (en) Is it possible to include an insurance policy (of sorts) within this? Just on the off-chance that any articles are improved between now and them being deleted. Most likely with the Editathon next week (although not guaranteed), there are a number of places in Scotland on the list that might be improved upon. What I'm thinking is that the script used to generate the current list is ran again ahead of deletion. I would then be happy to compare the two lists and bring back any improved articles. soothrhins (tauk) 11:44, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
    @Soothrhins: I would be happy to run the queries again and compare the articles myself. I wouldn't want you to have to worry about it! –MJLTauk 15:19, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
    (en) Not fussed on who does it, but so long as it happens then: Aye, I support deleting. soothrhins (tauk) 22:06, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Aye None of thae pages can be a showcase fae the Scots leid.--Illandancient (tauk) 22:31, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment. setListA is composed of non-exempt articles which aren't redirects where AG made the article and no one has edited since. setListB is composed of non-exempt non-redirect articles with a single edit since page creation where that was also AG. –MJLTauk 16:14, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

These are essentially Proposal 2 articles which were edited by a bot. There are only a total of 2 edits, but I will probably expand the criteria to 3 or more depending if there is consensus to delete this list first. –MJLTauk 18:31, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

(Find soorces: "Define:Ee dialect" – news · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images)

As per wiki policy, "Unsoorced material mey be challenged an remuived." The material in question in this case is the definition, and given that it's the entire point of the page removing the unsourced material would immediately make it eligible for speedy deletion under "Nae content". The author was notified 48 hours ago of the issues on the page and rather than make an attempt to fix the issues claimed they didn't understand English, which is easily refuted by their edit history. If somebody fixes the page I'll withdraw this, but if nobody's willing or able to do so then that in itself stands in support of this nomination. my_hat_stinks (tauk) 21:27, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

These are more than 33,000 talk pages created by AvicBot which solely consist of {{talkpage}} with no edits since. They make cleanup a lot harder, and many of them are on redirects or for deleted pages by now. –MJLTauk 16:46, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Sure - Niver makit sense tae me haein tauk pages fur the sake ae haein tauk pages CiphriusKane (tauk) 19:04, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

    (Find soorces: "Template:Asbox/Yoch" – news · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images)

    (in Inglis) This template was only being used for Template:Stub/Leid, having been created by Uiser:Varlaam for what was remarked upon in the recent yoch RfC as being the "weird" factor. I have changed {{Stub/Leid}} to be in line with other Stub sub-templates, using the generic {{Asbox}}, so this sub-template is no longer needed. James Hyett (tauk) 21:31, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

    Rebuilding an encyclopedia is hard work. I really hope we don't build it on a foundation of articles like these ones which aren't particularly notable to Scots Speakers. –MJLTauk 17:19, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

    • Support of course James Hyett (tauk) 18:48, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
    • Support as the article isn't useful as it stands. I'm curious as to what notability to Scots speakers actually entails though; would that mean an article on this subject, written in guid Scots, would also be deleted? --Mondodi (tauk) 21:23, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
    • Support. Fur bein ainly twa sentences wi nae soorces, if wir Wikipedia:Notability policy wis in place it widnae pass it. Deletin pages jist cause ye think maist Scots speakers willnae need it micht no be the best precedent tae set, if the issues git sortit the page shuidnae be deletit. my_hat_stinks (tauk) 23:55, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

    (en) see also Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Ephebophilia-- these two articles were created by the same user, FDR, who is an alternate account of PaulBustion88, who was a sockpuppet on enwiki of RJR3333, who was blocked on enwiki for abusively using multiple accounts. It's also unsourced and (to my non-native eye) Scotched English. James Hyett (tauk) 19:35, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
