Welcome to Votes for undeletion

It may occur from time to time that we delete an article by mistake — that is, that the article doesn't actually meet the standards for deleting articles listed on the VFD page. In this case, a Wikivoyager should link to the page on this page, with an explanation of why the deletion wasn't in accordance with our deletion policy. Articles and images are still considered guilty until proven innocent. After fourteen (14) days of discussion, if a nomination is uncontested or a consensus arises that the page was deleted unnecessarily, then an administrator should reinstate the page. Otherwise, the page will stay deleted. Please list new pages below.


Template:Xt[edit]

This is a template used on almost every WMF project, to quote in discussions. It's not supposed to be in articlespace, only in discussions. I don't see anything wrong with this template, so I'm proposing to undelete this template. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 11:55, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Has this template been created before? On mobile it indicates not. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 12:21, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
My bad. This appears to be a mobile issue. I guess I’m voting to undelete. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 12:22, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I would tend to oppose and suggest for everyone to read through Template talk:Xt. SHB2000, I don't understand why you want to introduce so many seemingly unnecessary templates to this site. Why does it have to be just like every other Wiki site you participate in? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:32, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I've well read it before I came to vfu, and those arguments don't really add up to me. It helps highlight quotes from other users like "I don't understand why you want to introduce so many seemingly unnecessary templates to this site.". Not only does this template visually distinct quotes. Perhaps if I showed you a demo, will that help?
Example without template:

Some of the arguments presented in vfd to keep the The Golden Triangle (India) article were "The Golden Triangle is a well known itinerary for foreign tourists in India and often aimed at first time visitors so I feel it is iconic enough to keep despite being unedited for over a year, I’m against it being a region as there is a set start and end point (Delhi) and it is often done by train.", which show that it is a notable itinerary and should not be deleted.

Example with template:

This is not to be used in mainspace pages, just discussion pages. And to "Why does it have to be just like every other Wiki site you participate in?", that I'll answer on your talk so I don't drive this vfu off topic. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 12:44, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
As in the previous discussion with Frank, probably best to achieve consensus if we discuss whether the function was needed first, so then we can implement. I assumed this was a more routine matter. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 14:14, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
It's standard to simply use italics in such situations. I won't oppose this, though. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:39, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I've just used an example naturally rather than creating an example here, which can be seen at Wikivoyage:Votes for deletion#Cycling in France. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 05:08, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
