I seem to have gotten the page "Desu" deleted by my misguided attempts to pretty up vandalism instead of removing it. It was a legitimate disambiguation page created by Tepples, who might not be very happy about its deletion.

The reason I didn't actually remove the vandalism is that it seemed like a good example of how "desu" is commonly used in the bowels of the internets, but I should have known better. I know disambiguation pages are frowned upon in Uncyc, but I don't see how a small judgment error on my part could get the article deleted given that I was not the original contributor.

Therefore, I ask that the original revision as created by Tepples (not the last revision before deletion) be undeleted or at least userfied to either Tepples' userspace or mine. You might want to post a note on Tepples' talk page explaining the situation, but be warned that he is not active any more regularly than I am.

Thank you for your time and effort.

The only problem I sees with this disambig page is that it appears truthful, or otherwise not funny. Could that be remedied? --KATIE!! 05:01, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
That's why I favor userfication. I'm going to say to userfy it to Tepples' userspace instead of mine, with a note on his talk page, since he would probably know better what to do with the article than I would. If the article ever makes it back into the main namespace, it might need to be protected. If you know anyone who might be able to expand the disambig into a full article, then it might be a good idea to notify them. Pentium5dot1 05:07, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Disambigs don't officially have to be funny, of course (sometimes there's limited amounts you can do with "Ted could refer to...") On the other hand, unless they're very useful I don't think it's much of a big deal when they get deleted, since not much work usually goes into them. Let Tepples complain about it himself if he's bothered. And stop apologising for your Aspergers - we're not prejudiced, despite what certain wars of 'Ought Six would have you believe. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:48, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

(arbitrary outdent) Okay, I admit I was wrong to make assumptions about Tepples' mental processes. Also, the reason I posted this topic in the first place was that the page seemed to have been deleted very quickly after I last edited it, and I wasn't sure how thoroughly the page history was examined. With that resolved, I am dropping my request for undeletion/userfication, and I will take the responsibility of notifying Tepples via his talk page. Had the page been listed on QVFD, I probably would have gone directly to Tepples' talk page without posting here. Thank you for your time and effort. Pentium5dot1 01:34, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
