Which pages should be deleted on Everybodywiki?

  1. Bad or illegal content such as hoaxes, fake news, and copyright violations. Examples include articles that have been tagged with the speedy delete template. These articles have been tagged as G3 (pure vandalism and 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.
  1. Pages kept on Wikipedia can be deleted on Everybodywiki expecting they were just merged or redirected. This deletion is not automatic at present.

Why are there so many red links on pages?

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 ?

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You can remove duplicate blue links in a page and keep just one. We think article should be linked once from another article.

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

  • Everybodywiki only copy pages which belong to the category "Articles for deletion" and category "Deletion Requests" on simple english wikipedia so you page should be copied within 24 hours on EveryBodyWiki. You can search it to be sure.
  • Everybodywiki doesn't copy pages from the categoy Candidates_for_speedy_deletion, if your page belongs to this category you have to copy it manually if it's a not a bad or illegal content. To keep the formatting we advise you to copy the source in wikicode and create the page in wikicode on Everybodywiki. Don't forget ot add the template "Source Wikipedia" at the bottom of the article to display the link to the page on Wikipedia. For that simply add {{Source Wikipedia}} in wikicode.

Why a page I edited was edited by WikiMasterBot ?

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

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