Coming here to ask why I deleted your article? Please read this page first...
Coming here to ask about a block or other admin action that I have issued on another WMF wiki where I am an admin? Please discuss on your talk page there (if you have Talk Page Access) and ping me as it has nothing to do with enwiki and is outside of its processes. Please also do not assume that that WMF wiki has the same blocking policy or processes as enwiki.

If you have any questions about another WMF wiki or my actions on such edition, please leave it on my talk page on that wiki and I will see it as a notification/get back to you. enwiki is not the appropriate place to discuss concerns from other WMF wikis

Restoring deleted pages
Hello, TheSandDoctor,
When you restore a page that was deleted as a stale draft, CSD G13, please make an edit to the restored page. Two of the drafts you restored were immediately tagged for deletion because they qualified for G13 deletion as no human edits had been made to the page in six months and one of the pages was deleted two more times, by another admin and I, before we realized our mistake. If you are going to help out at WP:REFUND, I suggest you get a tool called rfud-helper which will make these edits for you any time you restore a deleted draft. I know several of the admins patrolling there use it and you can find it at User:SD0001/RFUD-helper​. Thank you! Liz Read! Talk! 21:40, 10 July 2021 (UTC)
@Liz: I realized that as well and fixed it on the ones I spotted that after a few were deleted by another admin shortly after because the CSD template was missed. I’ll keep that in mind wrt non-templated and will install the tool. Thanks for reaching out!

Oh, no problem, I was embarrassed to have deleted pages that you had just restored. But things happens and this situation has happened before. I think restoring pages at WP:REFUND is one of the more satisfying admin tasks, to give editors back their drafts to work on. Because I do a lot of G13 deletions these days, I check out REFUND every day in case there has been a serious mistake. But I think it's better for a different admin to restore a page I've deleted so I only restore pages when an editor comes to my user talk page and requests it which seems to happen more with PRODs than G13s. All the best, Liz Read! Talk! 02:53, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
