Wikinews:Deletion requests/User draft listEdit

The subpage above contains a list of draft articles in userspace. Most of them are very stale, in some cases as much as 10 years old. This works in Wikipedia, where someone might spend years trying to write a decent article. However, Wikinews articles are stories that were fresh at the time of publishing. I can see no benefit to Wikinews in keeping dozens of stale, unpublished and unpublishable draft articles. I propose to delete all of the pages listed on the subpage in a weeks time. If there are any that could be salvaged, please indicate which ones and why. Note: There are some red links and struck out ones which are drafts that have already been deleted or will be.

  • Delete while I cannot say that I reviewed every page in the list, I did some random sampling and I have enough faith in User:Cromium that the rest are the same. --SVTCobra 00:31, 24 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Delete: Most definitely, many are not even news and all are stale. This will be a big task for the deleting admin. --Heavy Water (talk) 14:50, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
