Undelete Ellis Lawson Banister[edit]

Posted this in User_talk:Cactus.man:

Hello there -- I created an article a while back, and it has vanished. Could you assist me with restoring it to my personal user space, somewhere? The article is Ellis Lawson Banister. Thanks!
Hi, I have restored the article to your userspace at User:Forteanajones/Banister. Please remember that recreation of deleted content is a valid reason for speedy deletion. Please develop the article before reposting or, alternatively, you could list it at deletion review. Good luck either way. --Cactus.man 07:25, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Just to clarify, I assume such an article can remain indefinitely in personal user space? -FJ | hello 9/26/2006 12:42 PM PST
No, it should be there for you to develop for eventual use as a Wikipedia article. Please see this section on deletion review. Specifically:
Keeping deleted content in your userspace if you have no immediate intention of using it for encyclopaedic purposes is frowned on, as Wikipedia is not a free web host. If kept too long, the page may be nominated for deletion at miscellany for deletion.
I hope that helps. --Cactus.man 07:05, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Medical oddity[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Medical oddity has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not encyclopaedic. Unreferenced.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
