    EBI Wikipedia Deletion on 03/11/19

    https://webcache.googleusercontent.c...&ct=clnk&gl=us

    Someone has hidden the Eddie Bravo Invitational wikipedia page and set it for deletion this coming week. Does anyone know how to edit Wiki and get the page back online?

    Eddie Bravo Invitational does not show on wikipedia. I had to find a cached page on googles search engine.

    Heres the reason someone is using for the page deletion. Definitely a hater.

    "It is proposed that this article be deleted because of the following concern:
    Not a single decent secondary source in here; article seems to be just on a run of the mill tournament. Claims to greatness (about overtime rules etc.) are not properly verified.

    If you can address this concern by improving, copyediting, sourcing, renaming, or merging the page, please edit this page and do so. You may remove this message if you improve the article or otherwise object to deletion for any reason. Although not required, you are encouraged to explain why you object to the deletion, either in your edit summary or on the talk page. If this template is removed, do not replace it.

    The article may be deleted if this message remains in place for seven days, i.e., after 02:23, 4 March 2019 (UTC).
    If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article so that it is acceptable according to the deletion policy."

    Looks like someone (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Userrmies) put in a PROD on February 25, 2019 and then someone (user "GB fan" - Gracie Barra fan? Maybe. Look into it.) went ahead and executed the PROD yesterday. My understanding is that it's gone. This dude Drmies sucks. His whole claim to fame is that he goes around deleting wikipedia pages. https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiInActio...ht_red_handed/

    I think the best course of action would be to re-create the article and perhaps make sure to address the source issue and to have it linked with other pages. I found that the Polaris wiki is still up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polaris_Pro_Grappling but it has a large warning at the top about primary sources. The Polaris description also name drops everyone with a wikipedia athlete page and I think this matters from a wikipedia POV.
