My question - is this sufficient to make Dr Mike's Math Games for Kids notable by Wikipedia's standards? mike40033 (talk) 07:15, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

As you are no doubt aware this is a borderline case. In my personal opinion the site satisfies the criteria described in WP:WEB, and WP:GNG – although in both cases not by a comfortable margin. I am personally less convinced that such an article is of much benefit to the encyclopedia, but I have bookmarked the site and may (irrationally) change my mind after having tried some of the games with my little daughter. :) Hans Adler 09:07, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm well aware of Conflict of interest, though I haven't (yet) read WP:COI. I'm trying to tread carefully here :-) mike40033 (talk) 00:28, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
