Adopt as policy[edit]

RevDel is an important enough tool that it should be covered by an official policy. I therefore propose adopting the current version as policy. This policy simply explains what RevDel is and documents the current RevDel practice. Suggestions to change the current practice are not part of this RFC (if necessary, start a new section below).

Symbol support vote.svg Support Adoption as policy. Mostly common sense clarification on how to use this tool. --Jarekt (talk) 03:49, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Seems reasonable (and similar to other project policies, a good sign of reasonableness) QU TalkQu 22:09, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Reasonable to me. --Túrelio (talk) 09:49, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support, already de-facto policy. Jafeluv (talk) 13:00, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

I support the policy, but I wonder about the use of the word "redact" and its variants in several places. It is not a word I would choose for a general English speaking audience. How many of our en-2 or en-3 colleagues will have to look it up? Yes, I see that it is linked, but should a word that we must link be part of official policy? How about "hidden from public view" at first reference and "hidden" thereafter?      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 14:53, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Fair point. I think "redacted" was used to distinguish from oversighting, where the material is completely hidden; but it's not really necessary. I've amended the page to remove the word. Rd232 (talk) 15:31, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support looks reasonable --High Contrast (talk) 18:53, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support. Definitely, this should be an official policy. Allan Aguilar (talk) Flag of Costa Rica.svg 19:53, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
✓ Adopted Seems to be unanimous consensus, plus this has been open for one month. Techman224Talk 19:17, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
