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:

History of West Africa

This is a list and discussion of Wikipedia content for rescue consideration. When posting here, please be sure to:

  • First familiarize yourself with Wikipedia's guidelines for topic notability and identifying reliable sources.
  • Include specific rationale why the article/content should be retained on Wikipedia, and any ideas to improve the content.
  • Sign posts with four tildes ~~~~.
  • Place the {{subst:rescue list|~~~~}} template in Articles for deletion discussions, to notify editors about the listing here. The tag can be placed below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.

The following templates can be used for articles listed here:

  • *{{Find sources 3|Article name}} - Adds source search options
  • *{{lagafd|Article name}} - Adds relevant links
  • *{{lagafd|Article name|Article name (Nth nomination)}} - Likewise but for page nominated N ≥ 4 times

World Martial Arts Games[edit]

This seems to be a notable organization, since its connected to the Olympics. Finding a few more sources to expand it should be doable. Dream Focus 06:58, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Inori Aizawa[edit]

A lot of reliable sources have been found, but I'm not sure how to put them into the article. Some help working with this would be appreciated. Microsoft has an official anime girl created to represent Internet Explorer. Dream Focus 14:54, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

List of Japanese bondage models[edit]

As of List of pornographic actors who appeared in mainstream films (see below), the page was blanked by the same editor, then proposed for deletion as unreferenced and lacking inline references. Feel free to consider if it deserves to be rescued. --Cavarrone 11:36, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Only two names on there, are both in films with the word "bondage" in their titles or film descriptions. Not sure why Wikipedia still tolerates such list in it, but you can't just go around erasing things because you don't like them. Dream Focus 18:09, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Gerry Hutch[edit]


This has become a high-profile article as it was revealed today as the first Wikipedia article (on en.wp) to be censored under the European Right to be Forgotten law. Listed here. The law censors only search providers like Google, not Wikipedia, but the article's removal from Google is drawing attention to the article and now someone opened an AfD. There are many Keep votes's but they are weakly argued and stronger Delete votes are coming in, based on notability. -- GreenC 18:36, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Closed as snow keep. Dream Focus 17:59, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Taofeek Olakunle Ajiboye[edit]

Australian women scientists[edit]

I stumbled across a project that has just added 82 new BLPs, several of which start with "X is an Australian woman scientist". The pages are listed at Category:Wikibomb2014 although it's likely there a few more that don't have the correct category. People will start tagging the pages for deletion soon because several of them don't have sourcing to satisfy WP:PROF. Perhaps contributors here would be willing to get involved on the articles which look a bit vulnerable, in advance? Johnuniq (talk) 07:24, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
