Project Code of conduct

  • Please note that WikiProject Article Rescue Squadron is a Wikiproject intended to improve the encyclopedia. The project is not about casting !votes, nor about vote-stacking.
  • Focus on improving content. For example, when working on an article listed for rescue, try to qualify topic notability by adding reliable-source references with significant coverage of the topic. Edit the content to address specific concerns raised in the AfD discussion.
  • Show the light. If you comment in an AfD discussion, try to describe points in the nomination that have been corrected. Note any remaining deficiencies (e.g. lack of organization, structural problems, lack of balance, etc.). Base comments upon Wikipedia's deletion policy. If an article has been rewritten, you may place a comment in the AfD as a courtesy to assist the closing admin in determining which article version others were referring to.

Johnny Prill[edit]

Johnny Prill (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs|google)| AfD discussion

Can anyone find more sources about Johnny Prill? I've listed several sources there, but there might be more coverage about him in newspaper databases. Cunard (talk) 23:12, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

No-go area[edit]

No-go area (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs|google)| AfD discussion

This seems to be an interesting topic with good potential but finding some general sources might be challenging. Other perspectives are welcome. Andrew D. (talk) 20:07, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Tony Wright (sleep deprivation)[edit]

Tony Wright (sleep deprivation) (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs|google)| AfD discussion

This one has quite a few sources in Google and Google Books I have not had the time to really add them but it needs some help before being put to permanent sleep. -- GreenC 22:59, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Closed as No consensus. Andrew D. (talk) 20:08, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Bad call[edit]

Bad call (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs|google)| AfD discussion

We get bad calls at AFD too - that's why we have WP:DRV. I've started browsing and am finding interesting sources like "The influence of crowd noise and experience upon refereeing decisions in football". Any sports fans out there? Andrew D. (talk) 14:04, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Je suis Charlie[edit]

Je suis Charlie (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs|google)| AfD discussion

This means "I am Charlie" and so seems to be echoing the famous I am Spartacus slogan as an expression of solidarity. As this is a matter of free speech, it seems quite ironic that it should now be at AFD. Here's an example of a good source which focusses upon the topic: 'Je Suis Charlie' Message Goes Viral After Paris Attack. It seems likely that there will be more such analysis and coverage in the coming days. Andrew D. (talk) 08:09, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

List of interracial romance films[edit]

Two AFDs in one day!? Groundhog Day or Dumb and Dumberer? Andrew D. (talk) 22:37, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
