Which pages should be deleted on Everybodywiki?[edit]

  1. Bad or illegal content such as personal attacks, privacy leaks and copyright violations. Examples include articles that have been tagged with the speedy delete template. These articles have been tagged as G3 (pure vandalism but not blatant hoaxes), G10 (pages that disparage, threaten, intimidate, or harass their subject or some other entity and serve no other purpose), or G12 (unambiguous copyright infringement) on Wikipedia.
  2. Pages kept on Wikipedia can be deleted on Everybodywiki expecting they were just merged or redirected. This deletion is automatic. Pages forked on EveryBodyWiki could be kept here, just add the template {{nobots}} anywhere in the page to be sure the page won't be duplicate.

  1. Be sure you are connected
  2. Go to the page
  3. Click the tab "Edit Source" or the pen on mobile view
  4. Select all the content (Tip you can useCtrl + A) and delete it
  5. copy the template in wikicode : {{Kept_on_Wikipedia}}

Do you delete duplicated with Wikipedia ?[edit]

Yes WikiMasterBot2 is removing from april 24 2020 duplicates with Wikipedia replacing all the content by the template {{Kept in WIkipedia}} if it find the same page on Wikipedia.

It will delete only pages that WikiMasterBot2 or WikiMasterBot have edited and that are still on WIkiPedia (but not as redirect or still marked for deletion).

If you don't want a page you have copied from Wikipedia being deleted just add the template {{nobots}} anywhere in the page.

If the content of a page was already replaced by {{Kept in WIkipedia}}, feel free to revert WIkiMasterBot2 edits and add the template {{nobots}} anywhere in the page. WikiMasterBot2 won't replace the content anymore. After some weeks, pages kept on WIkipedia will be deleted.

What about hoaxes, fake news... ?[edit]

They should not be deleted but highlighted clearly at the top of the article as hoaxes, fake news/bio/information... To display a message please insert the template {{Db-hoax}} {{{{Fake news}} at the top of the article. See help page on how to add template

How can I help ?[edit]

Some maintenance job could be done see : Projet:ToDo Unfortunately our WikiMasterBot is too stupid to do these jobs at this time :(

How can I improve the position of article on search engines ?[edit]

Be sure your article...

  • long enough (more than 100 words)
  • ...contains keywords especially in header section. You can bold keyword or put between <strong> </strong> tags
    • Dont stuff too many keywords, your article should remains clearly readable by visitors
    • Put this keywords in "alt" tag or pictures description.
  • Put links from other articles related to the same topic. The anchor of the link should contains the key words. The article could be from everybodywiki or any other website. If the links are from outside websites they should be not in "nofollow" for a better result.
    • Don't put too many links at the same time and not from links farm.
    • Add existing relevant categories and portal on everybodywiki and links to pages of the same categories will be displayed in the future.
    • Put just one link on others articles to your page
  • Update your article informations when needed.
  • Don't create duplicate of your article, anyway search engine will display only one article on results pages. A good position is better than 2 bad positions.

Is that you who deletes pages from Wikipedia ?[edit]

No, on every Wikipedia, EverybodyWiki doesn't

  • delete any page,
  • vote for or against deletion
  • put articles as candidates for deletion
  • decline or reject drafts submissions

Why are there so many red links on pages?[edit]

A red link links to page which doesn't exist, you should be on a page which was imported from Wikipedia and has many links to pages which don't exists on Everybodywiki.

How can I clean a page ?[edit]

  • You can remove red links. if link text is important, you can bold it or add the tag <strong> if you are editing in wiki code.
  • You can remove duplicate blue links in a page and keep just one. We think article should be linked once from another article.
  • Please don't remove
    • categories even if the page is the only one which belong to this category. These categories will be use to show pages of the same category in the future and a page rely to this category could be imported or created some day.
    • The template {{Source Wikipedia}}

For page that was formerly in Draft namespace[edit]

Cleaning categories : on Draft page on Wikipedia categories are marked as a link [[:Category:NameOfTheCategory]] (with :)

To change it to a real categorisation of the page, edit the page with wikicode and remove ":" after "[[". Example :

  • Before : [[:Category:NameOfTheCategory]]
  • After : [[Category:NameOfTheCategory]]

I have created a page on Wikipedia which is currently considered for deletion, Everybodywiki will copy it ?[edit]

Why a page I have edited was edited by WikiMasterBot2 ?[edit]

Maybe because a page with the same name is currently in a "Articles for deletion" category or on the Draft: namespace on English or Simple English Wikipedia and has been automatically overwrited by WikiMasterBot2.

WikiMasterBot2 could make periodically some minor changes too like replacing some text.

SOLUTION : add the template {{nobots}} at the bottom of the page. See help page on how to add template

See user:WikiMasterBot
