Quick query about speedy deletions...[edit]

Hi Shirik. I hope to learn something from you. You may not be aware, but after denial for speedy-deletion of Flying Tiger Development, I returned to that page and attempted a cleanup. I added several references and some wiki-links. It was the least I could do for a page that was in such poor shape and without a single reference. My question is regarding pages such as this, that are almost entirely promotional and without notability. Is there something special about the category or content that I am missing? I dont want to inappropriately post a speedy-deletion notice without fully understanding why this one was rejected. -Kyle(talk) 21:04, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

@Khamar: don't worry too much about it; everyone makes mistakes. The important thing to note is that the CSD criteria are very strict, intentionally. Just because CSD doesn't apply doesn't mean it belongs on Wikipedia. It simply means it can't be deleted that way. WP:AFD is option in other cases. The G11 criterion, in particular, is meant for things that are basically advertising on Wikipedia -- the fact that a page about a company exists does not make it promotional. Something saying "we make the greatest games on the market" is clearly promotional. In general, my philosophy on CSD is this: if it's in any way ambiguous, it's not eligible for CSD. CSD is for things that obviously should be deleted. (Almost) everything else goes to AFD. Hope that clears things up. --Shirik (Questions or Comments?) 02:51, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Good to know. Now I understand your approach for CSD. I'll pass the information to others if I get the chance. -Kyle(talk) 04:20, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
