List of lynching victims in the United StatesEdit

I just wanted to compliment you on this article, because I know you had doubts about it for a while. You started it, it became seemingly unmanageable for awhile, but it is now working its way into a more and more useful collection of information. Thanks for this and all your other efforts to make Wikipedia better! Jacona (talk) 12:50, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Secret societies in the United StatesEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:Secret societies in the United States requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Liz Read! Talk! 16:03, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

It appears that Category:American secret societies is being used for this purpose. You might be able to propose it for a speedy rename at WP:CFD. Liz Read! Talk! 16:04, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
