WikiProject Japan[edit]

WikiProject Japan is designed to help organize all those working on Japan-related projects on Wikipedia. It acts as a clearing house to point editors to projects which interest them, and to make those projects easier to find.

  • If there is a topic which doesn't yet have an article on Wikipedia, please add it to the list of requests or create it yourself.
  • If you have a question about a Japan-related topic, please post it on the WikiProject Japan Talk page for a quick reply. Be sure to check the list of task forces as well (to the right).

This article was deleted in a previous AfD, recreated, redeleted under G4, then brought to deletion review. The result of that review was to relist it at AfD for a clean discussion. My listing here is thus an administrative action; I have no opinion on the outcome. -- RoySmith (talk) 11:47, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete She has no top tier MMA fights so she doesn't meet WP:NMMA. Being highly ranked in judo in middle or high school does not meet the notability standards at WP:MANOTE, nor does her grappling record. Papaursa (talk) 17:52, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete As per above. Who you fight is actually immaterial - where you fight them is. No top tier fights. Does not meet WP:MMANOT.Peter Rehse (talk) 21:25, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Automated comment: This AfD was not correctly transcluded to the log (step 3). I have transcluded it to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2014 July 20. —cyberbot I NotifyOnline 04:54, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete The vast majority of the references in this article are from one website, MMARising. In order to retain this article, one would need to add references from other reliable sources to demonstrate the notability of the subject. I hope this helps.

Setsuri (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: "Setsuri" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images)

This is the Japanese word of "providence." This disambiguation page lists it as the nickname or first name of two Japanese people, neither of which has a biographical article, and an alternative name (used in Japan) for a minor religious sect. I don't think this really meets the standards for a disambiguation page under WP:Disambiguation. Kitfoxxe (talk) 11:30, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Redirect The first page linked to doesn't even contain this word. Setsuri seems to mostly refer to the cult, it should redirect there. The artist himself doesn't seem to have warranted a page but a disambiguation note can be inserted if/when he does. SPACKlick (talk) 11:59, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep I removed the invalid first entry, moved a partial match to 'see also' and added a valid entry. User:Kitfoxxe and User:SPACKlick, what do you think of the dab as it now stands? Boleyn (talk) 15:24, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. It is better now. I'm not sure if it meets the standards for a disambig page or not now. If an article were to be started on the manga artist it would be a clear keep for me. Kitfoxxe (talk) 19:33, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Kitfoxxe, at the moment it looks like it should be a disambiguation note on the religion page saying "For the river see", if there were an article on the artist that would obviously change.SPACKlick (talk) 07:22, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Comment I don't think any evidence has been put forward that 'Setsuri' is more likely to apply to the religion (for an English language reader) than for the river (which seems to retain the name 'Setsuri' when in English. As there is no evidence of a clear WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, under WP:2DABS: If neither of the two meanings is primary, then a normal disambiguation page is used at the base name. Boleyn (talk) 07:29, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
On absolutely trivial evidence, first page of a google search is;
Wiki, 5x Artist, Religion, 4x(unrelated), Religion, 3x(unrelated), 2xArtist, Cult, 2x(unrelated), Religion, (unrelated), 2xArtist, Religion, River, Religion, 7x(unrelated), Religion, 4x(unrelated), Artist.
Which makes a good case for the river being barely referred although the unrelated results make me think Setsuri might be a region rather than just a river. Searches for Setsuri River and Setsuri Religion return similar numbers. I'm ok with the Disamb as it is. SPACKlick (talk) 11:31, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep: I suspect that Ghits are likely to under-represent the notability of a river as compared to a cult, so there is no reliable evidence of either being the primary topic. With the redlinked manga artist too, it seems a reasonable dab page in its present state. PamD 16:02, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
