Terence M. Vinson[edit]

A while back, consensus was gained for the deletion of an article about Terence M. Vinson. Because of that consensus, you closed the discussion and the article was deleted/redirected. In the interim, proposals have been made to delete other articles about current or former members of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. Some gained consensus for deletion, some did not. But also in the meantime, Vojen presented a concrete argument against deletion of such articles (on Wikipedia: Articles for Deletion/Randy D. Funk) that has resulted in all subsequent nominations failing. My question is this: Would you consider restoring the Vinson article if it could be shown that the consensus was for it? I think if a proposal was made to restore or recreate it, the result would be much different in light of Vojen's argument. So I was just curious about how you would feel on the issue. Please post any reply to my talk page, as I don't habitually check other user's talk pages for responses. Thanks. --Jgstokes (talk) 05:59, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. I understand your concerns about restoring an article where sources may be biased and where a COI exists. But I still believe that if the article were to be restored and relisted, the result would be much different today than it was then, especially in light of Vojen's argument, which, by your own admission, you have only skimmed the surface of. I would be very grateful if you were to restore the article and relist it at AfD for a second look. That would be more than I could ever have hoped for. And that's all I wanted: a second chance for the consensus to decide whether or not the article is worth keeping in light of the new argument that has been presented. So I would be very grateful if you would do that for me. Just let me know when it is done and where to comment and I will do so. Thanks for giving this another chance at life. --Jgstokes (talk) 19:27, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
