Project Code of conduct
Rescuesquad - No text.png
  • 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.


This week's article for improvement is:

Ancient Roman architecture

Aqueduct of Segovia 08.jpg

Arches were used in Ancient Roman architecture to build aqueducts, such as the Aqueduct of Segovia

UE 900[edit]

The article got nominated for AfD [1]. In my opinion it is a notable product from a notable company. The article was also submitted to an experienced editor who approved it by moving into main space. The references include pc magazine, cnet, wired as well as others. As I'm not a native English speaker I'm not always able to present my arguments in the best way. That is why I'm asking for an assistance. Dmatteng (talk) 18:37, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Anastasia Chernova[edit]

  • I already added two sources to this one, but its among a number of national pageant-winner nominated by the same nominator. Some may well not be notable, but there's not much evidence of WP:BEFORE being followed.--Milowenthasspoken 13:31, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
A discussion about all these pageant winners is at Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(people)#Beauty_pageant_contestants and whether national winners are automatically notable and need a guideline entry to say that, or if they should be deleted because finding coverage online in a foreign language is too much work to prove they pass the GNG.

While there is now a discussion (that should have happened first), there are a bunch of individual articles up for deletion Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ayako Hara, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Andrea Radonjić, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Salome Khomeriki, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Celeste Marshall, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Farah Eslaquit, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Camila Vezzoso, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Winfrida Dominic, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sheillah Molelekwa, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tsakana Nkandih, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Zhana Yaneva, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Laura Godoy, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Marcelina Vahekeni, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Adrienne Murphy, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jevon King that I have located so far.

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II[edit]

The article has been nominated for AfD [2]. In my opinion it is a notable product (incl. Editors' Choice award by PC Magazine) from a notable company, and it got sufficient media coverage. Per WP:Product it may have its own entry. The article was reviewed by an experienced editor who copyedited it as well, more information about the issue is found here [3]. As I'm not a native English speaker, I think I need assistance for the article to survive the AfD. Dmatteng (talk) 06:25, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Ended with KEEP. The references already in the article at the time of the nomination showed ample reliable sources reviewing the product. Dream Focus 01:10, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

List of Ice Bucket Challenge participants[edit]

  • Some help referencing all of these entries would be useful. A lot of famous people are doing this thing. The more coverage of people doing this in the news, the better. Dream Focus 04:09, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • It closed as Delete. I have copied the most recent version to a wikia I created a while back for this sort of thing. http://cultural-phenomenons.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Ice_Bucket_Challenge_participants Dream Focus 01:02, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I also kept a copy of this one. I loved the article, but it was unfortunately doomed. Can you make money off wikia? Because I've often thought that some types of articles that no longer pass muster are still likely to be sought after.--Milowenthasspoken 03:35, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
    No money can be made by us. Jimbo Wales owns it, and gets all the money. All the things deleted from Wikipedia ended up there years ago when Wikia was first created. If you log in you don't see most of the ads. They added more ads at one point and then made it so regular editors wouldn't have to see them, since it might drive them away, but those not logged in do. Different wikias have different levels of ads. I created http://gantz.wikia.com/wiki/Gantz_Wiki and not logged in I can see the background itself replaced by nothing but ads. I just checked the page I linked to above, and wow, I didn't expect that many ads. You forget they are all there if you just stay logged in. Dream Focus 06:47, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
