Read Deleted Wikipedia Pages On Deletionpedia

wikipediaMany users think that nothing gets ever deleted on Wikipedia. There might be some heavy editing going on from time to time but deleting pages? If you visit the website Deletionpedia you will soon realize that Wikipedia pages get regularly deleted. Pages in this case meaning the page including all of its contents.

Deletionpedia provides a mirror of these deleted pages so that they can still be accessed by interested users. The website offers for example pages like "2008 United States presidential election controversies and attacks", "Elvis Sightings" or a "list of female basketball players". Searching for some of the phrases on Wikipedia will lead the visitor to a more general page that covers the topic. A search for "Blood Angels" will for example open the Space Marines (Warhammer 40,000) on Wikipedia while Deletionpedia still offers the original Blood Angels Wikipedia entry.


Most Deletionpedia pages contain links to the deletion discussion on Wikipedia which can shed some light on the deletion motives. Some pages contain additional information that the page is going to be transferred to another Wiki in the future.

Deletionpedia is an interesting project that currently hosts more than 60.000 Wikipedia pages that have been deleted. Interested users can browse Deletionpedia by various parameters including date of deletion, by number of revisions or editors.
