This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to People. It is one of many deletion lists coordinated by WikiProject Deletion sorting. Anyone can help maintain the list on this page.

Adding a new AfD discussion

Adding an AfD to this page does not add it to the main page at WP:AFD. Similarly, removing an AfD from this page does not remove it from the main page at WP:AFD. If you want to nominate an article for deletion, go through the process on that page before adding it to this page. To add a discussion to this page, follow these steps:

  1. Edit this page and add {{Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/PageName}} to the top of the list. Replace "PageName" with the relevant article name, i.e. the one on the existing AFD discussion. When you save the page, the discussion will automatically appear.
  2. You should also tag the AfD by adding {{subst:delsort|Deletion sorting|~~~~}} to it, which will inform editors that it has been listed here. You may place this tag above or below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.
  3. Please indicate the title of the article in the edit summary, it is particularly helpful to add a link to the article in the edit summary.

Note that there are a few scripts and tools that can make this easier.

Removing a closed AfD discussion

Closed AfD discussions are automatically removed by a bot.

Other types of discussions

You can also add and remove links to other discussions (prod, CfD, TfD etc.) related to People.

Dubious notability. Sources are all self-published, affiliated, or otherwise user generated, per WP:RS. I don't doubt the person exists and has written code, but we need significant coverage in reliable, independent sources. --Animalparty-- (talk) 16:16, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

You mentioned the need for source code provided by Greythorne, there are now references to code he wrote.

Many linked references used as valid ones on the Fravia wiki also apply to Greythorne. He is mentioned in Fravia's writings often as gthorne in the 1990s and other sites. This should count for him as well. The 2600 article from 1998 listed in references called "Clampdown" should count as a book reference. The references to him on the web show a span of about 20 years or more in many places all over the net. The sites are not possibly affiliated other than that they are about the same topics - reverse engineering and cracking, which is why he is famous in those circles.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Caldwyn (talkcontribs) 20:36, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Fails WP:BLP1E - Prior to the Jezza incident he wasn't known at all and he'll probably be only known for this and that's it,
The incident is mentioned on both the Jeremy Clarkson article and the Top Gear article so no objections to Redirecting if wanted. –Davey2010Talk 15:01, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Just realized it was prodded a mere second by AussieLegend before me nominating this so pinging them. –Davey2010Talk 15:09, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete Not worth his own article on the basis of the Clarkson steak incident, classic example of misplaced BLP notability here.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 15:13, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep while I understand the concern about BLP1E, he flys past WP:GNG and the rest of the notability criteria, and has had extensive coverage in multiple news sources. I am still planning on expansion with past this to to fill it in past 1 event but I'm on mobile right now so I'm limited. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 15:14, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
No, BLP1E applies to individuals who are notable for only one event and this is clearly the case here. --AussieLegend () 15:17, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
He is also notable for the other 8 movies/shows he has produced, which I have now added. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 00:58, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
No he's not. He doesn't pass WP:GNG on any of these. Simply being mentioned in the credits or working on the project does not establish notability. --AussieLegend () 03:19, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - The reason I prodded this article is that WP:BLP1E applies. Contrary to the claim in the first sentence of the article, the individual is not "best known for his role in producing Top Gear (2002 TV series)". He is best known for being punched by Jeremy Clarkson and it was only this incident that resulted in him being found to be a producer of Top Gear. Prior to this he was not listed as a producer of the series, this was only added to Top Gear (2002 TV series) more than two weeks after Clarkson was suspended.[4] In fact, had Tymon given Clarkson his steak, we'd probably still be blissfully ignorant of Tymon's involvement in the series. --AussieLegend () 15:17, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete, clear case of WP:BLP1E. Coverage is entirely in the context of a single event. January (talk) 15:39, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment to those referring to WP:BLP1E I will quote directly from there:
"We should generally avoid having an article on a person when each of three conditions is met:
  1. If reliable sources cover the person only in the context of a single event. (Iffy on this point)
  2. If that person otherwise remains, and is likely to remain, a low-profile individual. Biographies in these cases can give undue weight to the event and conflict with neutral point of view. In such cases, it is usually better to merge the information and redirect the person's name to the event article. (He could gain more coverage in the future, but I'm no crystal ball)
  3. If the event is not significant or the individual's role was either not substantial or not well documented. (The event is significant and has recieved excessive media coverage and he played a substantial well documented role in it)"
EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 15:52, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Point 3 of WP:BLP1E goes on to say: "John Hinckley, Jr., for example, has a separate article because the single event he was associated with, the Reagan assassination attempt, was significant and his role was both substantial and well documented", this is an example of what is meant by a significant event in this context of BLP1E. BLP1E also states that "The significance of an event or individual is indicated by how persistent the coverage is in reliable sources." Given how recent this event is (it only became public knowledge on 10 March), the coverage of Tymon cannot be described as persistent. January (talk) 16:32, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

There's plenty of blame to go around, but that isn't a valid reason for creating an article, and he is notable only for that event, so WP:BLP1E applies. --AussieLegend () 20:34, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Note: I have expanded the article quite a bit, to include more notability displaying things like his past filmography. I have also added 5 times the references as before. Can I also site WP:DONOTDEMOLISH in saying this article was nominated less than an hour after creation? EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 00:56, 29 March 2015 (UTC) I also want to point out I have added references to sources outside of the Steakgate incident which reference his notability as the producer of Top Gear, much in the same way as Andy Wilman. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 01:44, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
The number of references in the article is irrelevant. We only require BLPs to have at least one references and BLPs require strong references. Points in the article are supported by 2, 3 and 4 references, but that doesn't make the article any better, because they're all referencing the one incident. Basic information, like the birthdate, remain unreferenced and the recently added filmography is now referenced by IMDB, which is why I added {{BLP IMDB refimprove}}, which you've now removed. I'm sorry, but everything in the article is biographical, so that tag was entirely appropriate. Regarding WP:DONOTDEMOLISH. the article was nominated for the obvious reason that the subject is notable only for one event and isn't going to pass WP:GNG any time soon. Davey2010's nomination was entirely appropriate. --AussieLegend () 01:21, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
Just a note to say that it's considered bad form to keep altering your posts after they've been replied to.[5] Regarding that addition, Andy Wilman was notable prior to the recent incident, for many years in fact. His BAFTA awards establish his notability. The references you've been adding merely supplement the IMDB filmography. These don't establish notability on their own. --AussieLegend () 02:15, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
EoRdE6 - Nominating an article an hour after creation is absolutely fine, However nominating within a minute of creation on the other hand isn't, I'd also like to point out the fact I had absolutely no idea what time you even created it - I simply saw an edit summary with you stating "Linked Oisin Tymon" so thus nominated it so unfortunately the whole "This is a bad faith nom" doesn't wash, At the end of the day We don't need an article on some non-notable bloke only becoming known due to the fact he got smacked by a celebrity. –Davey2010Talk 02:31, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Granted this person received a large amount of media attention for who she murdered, but the subject is known for the one thing WP:1E. Therefore, the article should either be deleted or merged into Murder of Selena. Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 20:07, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I can't believe that I would say this but I disagree. Saldivar is not only known for killing Selena (yes, she is mostly known for), but she had a hefty record before getting into contact with Selena (Patoski, 1996) and the publicity she had after the shooting has spurred other events, such as being proposed to another notorious convicted murderer (Arraras, 1997). The article can be expanded by the numerous books and films that have revolved around her, but I wouldn't want to be that person. Best, jona(talk) 20:37, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
OK, fair enough, but I'm not seeing any of that in the article. From an average Reader standpoint, she's known for killing Selena and that's it. Any fame that resulted after the murder would not have happened had she not murdered Selena, its still effectively WP:1E. Lee Harvey Oswald did not become more Notable because he was killed by Jack Ruby, its just something that happened stemming from his primary act, the Kennedy Assassination. And unless somebody is going to make the argument that Selena's murder is on par with a political assassination, Saldivar doesn't seem Notable. --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 20:57, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
To Hispanics the death of Selena is more important than the assassination of JFK (which is on the murder article and sourced), but I'm not going to expand the Saldivar article because there's a lot to do and I would rather focus on improving music articles. But for the sake of Wikipedia, she has been in the lime light other than the killing. Best, jona(talk) 21:18, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep as article is well-sourced and subject easily crosses the verifiability and notability thresholds. AfD is not cleanup. - Dravecky (talk) 22:12, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. "More important than JFK's assassination" was perhaps an exaggeration prompted by sentiment at the time, but I think we can legitimately compare this to the murder of John Lennon (also mentioned as a comparison of the time) for which we also have articles about both the murder and the murderer. While I suppose we could merge all of this content into Murder of Selena, on balance it is probably helpful to have a separate article for the detailed information about Saldívar, and there is certainly enough coverage about her to pass GNG. --Arxiloxos (talk) 02:50, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

AntonioMartin, Really, what? This article came up on the Special:PendingChanges and when I saw what it was and the articles associated with it I wondered if it needed to exist separately. If this AfD concludes as Keep, I have no issue with that. I can give several examples of highly publicized murders where the perpetrator does not have a separate article, but is merged in with the article for the incident. I guess the standard is if you kill someone famous, you get your own article. --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 06:48, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. This was a notorious murder, and it appears in books, a film, documentaries, news stories, etc. She's notable, too, for being a rare female killing a female for other than cheating with her male. Far from run of the mill. Bearian (talk) 19:15, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep. The subject, or specifically her allegations, have received significant coverage in a wide variety of reliable sources to the present day. On par with Kathleen Willey, the content is a legitimate fork of Sexual misconduct allegations against Bill Clinton. To me, one question is whether we should name the article after her or after the event (i.e. the allegations she made). I'm OK with keeping it as named given that, per BLP1E, the event (i.e.allegations) was significant and she was central to that event. - Location (talk) 19:23, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Non-notable domestic violence (murder-suicide) case involving non-notable persons. No significant coverage beyond local news, no legal precedents. Fails WP:CRIME and WP:NOTNEWS. I also find it bizarre that the murderer and his victim are given a joint biography. - hahnchen 20:06, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep or move back to Draft. Most commonly, I work on articles about and related to games. So when I found this interesting story, I was floored. Is it notable to have a murder within the gaming industry? I don't know, but I have never heard of a game designer killing another game designer. The Battens themselves may or may not be notable, but they have both worked on some pretty notable projects. I did not think that separate articles, or even an article on either individual, made much sense so I wrote one for both. The murder itself seems to have plenty of coverage, both from the local news and sources like Fortune, Kotaku and The Escapist, as well as the print source Designers & Dragons (which describes the crime as "one of the more shocking events in RPG's history") where I first learned of this case. There were a bunch of blogs on my Google search, which I did not use, and I did not know if I should use Whatifgaming even though it had an interview from her work on Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. This article in its current state is not my best work, I will grant you that, but I have never started an article on a crime before. I first posted to the WP:VG talk page for advice, and got responses from GamerPro64, Jeraphine Gryphon, Izno, Czar, 1bandsaw, Fakedeeps, and Salvidrim!, some of whom also did some minor edits to the article. I could solve the "bizarre" joint biography by splitting them into two sections, but I was not sure if that was necessary. I was also unsure of what the article's name should be, so that could be changed by anyone with a better idea than me. I was also unsure of what exactly to do with the lead.

  • Keep. The coverage is a bit light, but it's still there. The crime was highlighted by The New York Times in an article about murder-suicides related to domestic violence, and they specifically mentioned that it "made headlines". This seems to be an implicit statement of notability on their part. I can see how people would argue that it's perhaps more applicable to Wikinews, but I think it squeaks by the GNG. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 17:37, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Merge Agree with opening (hahnch). Notability is questionable here; but the point is that victims of this domestic violence and their lives were not so domestic. Again, agree over joint biography goof - titles and POV should be different. However, if the event has been covered by significant sources and had notable impact on relevant communities - it might be legible as article. I recommend search and presentation of sources noting enduring effects; or incorporation of information into appropriate (possibly to be created) article, timeline or list.

Article created on a person who was elected to the Knesset in Israel's recent elections. However, they have opted not to take up their seat, so will not have been a Knesset member. Thus they fail WP:POLITICIAN (and being a mayor of Safed, a small town in the north of Israel) is not really sufficient to confer notability. Prod removed by an IP without explanation.

  • Keep. But he does meet GNG. See, for example, articles here and here and here and here and here and here. Nor is the coverage for one event. Epeefleche (talk) 06:52, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete I see that there are some 3rd party references but not anymore than you would see for any other mayor. He is young and might be notable in the future, but at the moment I don't see notability to warrant a wikipedia entry, not every Mayor is notable just like not every CEO of a small company is notable. Bryce Carmony (talk) 12:07, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Those 3rd party references you see are significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. Which is precisely what wp:GNG says makes a subject notable for wikipedia purposes. Epeefleche (talk) 18:26, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. Doesn't need to meet WP:POLITICIAN, when it plainly meets GNG. Plenty of coverage about him on account of his decision to give up his Knesset seat, and previous non-Knesset activity. What's the point to delete a non-promotional, well soruced article about a man with plenty of media coverage, just because he's not quite as prominent as some users would like? Spare a few kilobytes for the poor mayor of Safed; his article meets our standards. -- Y not? 14:16, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
That's accurate -- it doesn't need to meet wp:politician. I'm actually surprised that the nomination fails to mention GNG at all, and solely focuses on wp:politician. If one searches in Hebrew, one finds even additional substantial RS coverage; it is certainly ample to meet GNG. --Epeefleche (talk) 20:48, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Presently almost unsourced. Couldn't find even trivial mention in the web, likely fails WP:BIO. Brandmeistertalk 21:03, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

I was not given the chance to add the reffernece list!

For notable publications by the artist first see, Suite: The Humber Bridge - can be found whaen typed into bing He is listed as David J Newstone, on that record, . As i stated i did not get the chance to list all other records, for example, Old Faithful, come on you 'ull etc.

it seems no effort was put into the internet search before the banner went up!

The page is on a musician local to Yorkshire and the humber, who has had hits with songs,like old faithful. He is well known in the hull area. And has worked with notable stars. After an interview with this indervidual i decided to add him to wiki as i could not find him listed. I know he may not be known to people outside of yorkshire but this does not mean that he is not woth listing. While i am starting the page there are others who wish to maintain it. Please state why you feel this person is not worth listing as many others he has worked with are on wiki. Balyputalk

Keep it says there is more to be added including images and refs but it is stated that there is no point if it is being deleted . There are many individuals on wiki who are hard to find on the web. I followed the instruction on the humber bridge info and found this person, he wrote and composed both the rock and orchestral pieces. I feel people like this seem to be forgotten to easy. Give the guy a chance to build the page before jumping to deletion.

Suggestion It appears that this article was created directly in article space, rather than in a users sandbox or as a draft or via AFC
Balypu is complaining "I was not given the chance to add the reffernece(sic) list" and 109.155.97.173 states "it says there is more to be added including images and refs but it is stated that there is no point if it is being deleted"

  • Comment I removed the jumble of deletion tags (the article had G7 and BLP-PROD tags in addition to AfD), and I've been working on this article for a while. I conclude that the subject does not meet WP:ACADEMIC; his publications are few, old, and not widely cited. However, he may be WP:GNG notable, or rather notorious. Virtually all of his publicity is bad. He has gotten a ton of press coverage over legal issues, including a highly-publicized lawsuit from the widow of George Harrison, and a federal lawsuit alleging Medicare fraud. It appears that his treatment methods have been controversial, although I couldn't find significant Reliable Source criticism of his methods. And there are hints that he was forced out at SIUH, but again no confirmation. I could find almost no biographical information. Overall I would say Delete. I think there would be a BLP risk if we write an honest article, and a charge of whitewashing if we leave out all the bad stuff. --MelanieN (talk) 18:43, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Our sources are more than thin: passing mention in what appears to be a self-published newspaper (at any rate, an extremely local and small one); passing mention in an article about August Treboniu Laurian, again in a no-name newspaper; and an official press release (never a good source for history articles) not about Stoica, but about his pilot, who may be marginally notable.

So, in sum: great fellow, tragic end, etc., just not quite encyclopedia material. - Biruitorul Talk 14:21, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Is there an issue with Gheorghe Bănciulescu? Are their effort not worth mentioning? Is the Paris - Bucharest route [of 1926] not a brave attempt? The fact that one of them died and the other had his legs amputated; is that not worth for Wikipedia? If not Ion Stoica, at least the event should have a Wikipedia page. In general, an individual is presumed to be notable if they have received significant coverage in multiple verifiable independent, reliable sources. it's the only reasonable statement for deleting the article.--TudorTulok (talk) 19:38, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
And we have two separate unique sources in Romanian about both of them: Source 1 Source 2. How many unique sources do we need? TudorTulok (talk) 19:44, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
OK, the content of Ion Stoica (aviator) will be moved to the English translation of ro:Fofeldea, Sibiu, that's fine. Please let me know before you remove the article. TudorTulok (talk) 19:58, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Worth checking that the event (September 1926) where Ion Stoica died was just a contest from "Cupa Bibescu": Gheorghe Bănciulescu and ro:Romeo Popescu were flying a month before (August 1926) on the same route. I believe Stoica and Bănciulescu were trying to break a speed record on the same route. Anyway, this things are interesting, and without the proper links some details will fade into the obscurity of time.TudorTulok (talk) 20:02, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
The bottom line is that an individual is considered notable if he meets WP:BASIC: "significant coverage in multiple published secondary sources". Thus far, no source you have presented achieves that. We either have passing mention, or the sources themselves are not particularly quotable.
I would add, too, WP:CONTEXTMATTERS: "the reliability of a source depends on context". We are dealing with someone who died in 1926, in other words, a historical figure. The ideal sources for such an individual are a) newspapers of the day - see here for those - and b) historical publications, both books and articles. Not press releases or news briefs from the past few years. If you want to demonstrate notability (as defined by policy), you still have a long way to go. - Biruitorul Talk 23:13, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Weak keep. How about Istoria Aviaţiei Române, a book by Nicolae Balotescu, published in 1984? Razvan Socol (talk) 08:49, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Just to be clear about the extent of said book's coverage of the subject: "In 1926, Captain Gheorghe Bănciulescu, with mechanic Ion Stoica on board, attempted to fly a Potez-25 plane without a stopover from Bucharest to Paris. However, the plane hit the Hirburn hill in Raymarov, Czechoslovakia due to thick fog. Stoica died as a result of this accident, while Captain Bănciulescu fractured both legs, which were amputated following surgery."
That isn't in-depth coverage; it's passing mention in a 750-page volume. At best, Stoica deserves mention in the article on Bănciulescu. But if this is the best we can come up with, then no, a standalone article simply is not justified. - Biruitorul Talk 14:07, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
But we have three separate sources now. Right? TudorTulok (talk) 18:20, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
First, it depends on what you define as a source. For instance, like I've said, a government press release is not the best source for attesting the notability of a historic figure. Second, nothing we have so far goes into any particular depth about the subject. Essentially everything about him deals with the Bănciulescu crash and discusses him in that context. This suggests that WP:BIO1E applies:
"When an individual is significant for his or her role in a single event, it may be unclear whether an article should be written about the individual, the event or both. In considering whether or not to create separate articles, the degree of significance of the event itself and the degree of significance of the individual's role within it should be considered."
Neither Stoica nor the crash are important enough to warrant separate articles, and we really should treat him as the sources do, namely as a brief mention in the article on Bănciulescu. - Biruitorul Talk 19:09, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Should Fofeldea (similarly to ro:Fofeldea) extend the section about him? TudorTulok (talk) 21:48, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Anyway, there isn't enough significant coverage for the GNC to be met. I think it's in compliance with due weight if the subject of this article is mentioned in Bănciulescu's article and maybe in Fofeldea, Sibiu.--Mihai (talk) 22:58, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Able to find the subject substantially covered in a single reliable source [13] (cited), which according to the basic criteria for WP:GNG, does not suffice for notability all by itself. (Note: I added WP:1R). Further investigation revealed other secondary sources, but their coverage of the subject is indeed trivial. Specifically, only mentioned by name on a reliable source [14] (not cited), and further trivial coverage on sources that are bound to a geographic locality and are less reliable: a document from the educational institution he attended [15] (not cited), and an event publication [16] (not cited). Now for the additional criteria, I do not believe that for a WP:BLP, the subject satisfies WP:ARTIST based on the current body of evidence. Unless someone finds other sources in the time frame of this AfD, my assessment is a Delete. ← scribble · ink chat\contrib 17:12, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Reads like a CV. Weak references. Not notable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zigzig20s (talkcontribs) 00:28, 20 March 2015‎ (UTC)

  • Speedy keep I have no strong feelings on the article one way or the other, but this reeks of WP:POINTed behavior. The nominating editor disagrees with some of my edits on a totally unrelated article, and shortly after improperly tries to speedy this article that I recently edited. This was right after describing it as "creepy" for other editors to watch their edit histories.[17] It's very disruptive when these kinds of arguments spill out into other areas like this, and it poisons the well for productive editing of controversial topics. Grayfell (talk) 02:55, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
No. I said I would not discuss the SAE incident again, so please don't bring it up again and stop attacking me personally. Reem Al Marzouqi's page looks very weak to me--only two references, reads like a CV, doesn't look notable--there is nothing more to it.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:34, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not talking about the SAE, and you don't get to use that as a way to avoid responsibility for your actions. The only plausible reason you even looked at this article was because it was in my edit history. To try and speedy this article (without a valid rational) right after a disagreement appears to be a retaliatory edit. If a neutral party would like to AFD this, I would do the work to actually check and see if there are sources and go from there, but you're not neutral, and this nomination was obviously done in bad faith. Grayfell (talk) 03:47, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
No. This AFD is not about you at all. It's about "Reem Al Marzouqi". Please leave me alone. Don't comment on this if you don't want to.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:58, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not trying to bully you or make things difficult okay? Please try to see it from my perspective. It looks like you followed me to an article I worked on and nominated it for deletion just because we disagreed about an unrelated issue. I think that was inappropriate behavior, and I have a right to explain that. Right? If not, why not? Now you are telling me to leave you alone, and that is very confusing. If you want to be left alone, you should not be following other editors around like that. Grayfell (talk) 04:09, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I saw this article and it looks weak. I don't want to talk to you. I hope I never have to talk to you ever again. Speedily close this stub about a nobody with two weak references as keep if that's what it takes. But you are personalizing Wikipedia instead of looking at this article for what it is.Zigzig20s (talk) 04:24, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
You nominated this article for deletion, so here we are. Don't try and blame this on me picking a fight with you. You keep saying you don't want to talk to me, but you keep insisting on having the last word. You say I'm the one personalizing Wikipedia, but you're the one making grudge edits. Grayfell (talk) 05:32, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
If you have no strong feelings on the article one way or the other why are you voting Speedy anything? Let the AfD continue with comments from people not involved in the feud. I see the nominator, you, Artw and Inicholson are all involved in the SAE dispute. How about letting neutral third parties weigh in? DreamGuy (talk) 16:55, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Honestly, I regret mentioning this AFD on the SAE article's talk page. That was (inadvertent) canvassing on my part. I shouldn't have done that, and I don't think anyone should get involved with this, for or against, just because of that completely unrelated dispute.
My goal is to clearly explain what's going on. I think it's counter-productive to pretend that this isn't a messy nomination with a connection to unrelated wikidrama. I don't like the idea that my willingness to get involved in controversial articles means I have to fear retribution. I don't think that's a good precedent to set, and my understanding is that AFDs can be closed for procedural reasons on those grounds. Grayfell (talk) 22:17, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete - While I can see how some editors believe this was made in bad faith, but even if it were we would have to focus on the merits of the article itself. I see nothing in the article that even sounds like it would meet the criteria for notability on Wikipedia. The sources are weak, and even if sources exist to substantiate the claims, those facts would be rather trivial and not at all the kind of thing that deserves a Wikipedia article.

  • Delete: The patent in question is a design patent, to be clear, and as Pax said, having a patent does not establish someone's notability. The source in question is not credible enough(youngplus magazine?) to make the claim that she is the first Emirati to be granted a US Patent, I find that dubious Be..anyone. I also feel it is a fallacy for above voters to be attacking the nominator rather than the nomination. Questioning the nominators motives should have been placed as a concise comment, if at all, not as a 'speedy keep' vote that does not even talk about the article at hand. Your intentions may have been good, but this is not the forum for you to continue this dispute, Grayfell. Artw's vote is also improper for the same reason. ― Padenton |  18:08, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

    I'm not at all impressed by the YT statement of the brother, but she did represent UAE on an exhibition with 100 artworks, showing her car as 101st local addition, she's featured in a PDF of her university, and another reference supporting the Jessica Cox connection is also okay. BTW, there are four related patents on the patent search page, she's listed as inventor on all these patents, but only for the specified number she's listed first. Somebody with a clue about {{cite patent}} should fix it, I gave up and tweaked {{cite web}} as better than it was. –Be..anyone (talk) 18:28, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Selective merge to mIRC. In principle, there's something of a case here for notability under WP:CREATIVE, as apparently the sole creator and developer of a widely-used (and undoubtedly notable) computer utility. The problem is that the subject seems to be known for little or nothing else, and sources visible on a Google search give very few personal details about him. Of the current article, some parts are actually more about mIRC than about the subject - otherwise, perhaps half a sentence of basic biographical detail could perhaps be added to mIRC, even if this can only be sourced from primary sources. (I should perhaps finish by remarking that the article has apparently been merged to mIRC twice before - if User:TheCuriousGnome, who reversed this on both occasions, is still around to explain why they weren't happy with merger, I'd like to know).

So many detailed accounts have been written of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (even one focussing on the ship's cat) that, in practice, being a minor member on it probably does satisfy WP:BIO. Having said that, the same few facts for each (though apparently a few more for Blackborow than for Bakewell) get repeated in the various sources - Bakewell being American, Bakewell smuggling Blackborow onto the ship as a stowaway, Shackleton's reaction when Blackborow is discovered, Blackborow being chosen as the first person to land on Elephant Island, Blackborow's toes becoming gangrenous and having to be cut off, the photo of Blackborow with the cat on his shoulder - which may make summarising them in the article on the expedition's personnel a slightly better idea than standalone articles.

  • Keep, his work is exhibited in the Frye Art Museum. Despite the lack of other sources, which I suspect would be found if actually searched for, this indicates notability in and of itself. Museums don't display works by non-notable artists. Skyerise (talk) 03:27, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Notability for Wikipedia purposes isn't established based on whether or not museums display their work. Have you read WP:GNG, Skyerise? -- WV 03:42, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment - responders should note that WV (Winkelvi) is gutting the article, removing what in my opinion are reliable sources, to ensure deletion of the article. This is bad form. Those who respond to the AfD should be relied upon to look into the references and decide for themselves how reliable they are. Skyerise (talk) 04:21, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Bullshit. I've removed unreferenced content, moved links that weren't reliable references to the external links section, removed dead links, etc. It's all in the editing history and there is no "bad form" occurring. This is a nothing article about a non-notable subject, period. -- WV 04:23, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
No, you've repeatedly undone my adding details to citations and formatting them with the {{cite}} template. You've also repeatedly removed the sentence noting an award, which is relevant to notability and supported by a reference: "Giecek's work Near Spring won first prize at the twenty-eight annual Puget Sound Area Exhibition at Seattle's Frye Art Museum." [19]. The program cover is not "forged" and is supported by the work's inclusion Musuem catalogue. Sheesh! Skyerise (talk) 04:36, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Skyerise and Winkelvi, hopefully your battle at the article has ended. If it continues, and I see it, either or both of you may be blocked. @Winkelvi, a polite suggestion: leave the article alone, whether it has unsourced material or poorly sourced material in it. Editors who evaluate the notability of the subject can easily see what is sourced and what isn't and how. You're also free to comment here on the sources rather than deleting material from the article. The article is short; it's not that hard to go through. That said, @Skyerise, edit-warring is not justified, even if you think that what Winkelvi is doing is in "bad form". Now, why don't the two of you sit back, relax, and let other editors opine on whether the article should be kept or deleted.--Bbb23 (talk) 04:39, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete. It seems that this artist has, as a claim to notability, the following:
    1. One watercolor from 1986 displayed in a museum in Seattle.
    2. A membership card in an artists' group.
If that's all there is, I can't justify keeping it. Is there more that I missed? J♯m (talk | contribs) 06:42, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Weak delete: does not appear to meet the threshold for notability as an artist. Quis separabit? 12:44, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Userfy to allow the primary contributor (or keeper) to work on the article and bring it up to Wikipedia standards. If it can't be salvaged (or merged to another article) within six months, delete from user space. Viriditas (talk) 02:18, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Which will be pretty much impossible to do, Viriditas. The article subject simply has nothing "out there" in form of secondary sources. Other than what's already in the article, there's nothing but primary. I've looked at his artwork online, read his bio. I like what he does artistically, and he looks like a great guy, but he's just not notable for Wikipedia purposes. As another editor pointed out above, the article subject has one watercolor from 1986 displayed in a museum in Seattle and a membership card in an artists' group. Truth is, there are a lot of great artists currently in the world, but relatively, only a handful of them are eligible according to our guidelines and policies on notability. The article subject doesn't fall into that handful. -- WV 02:33, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
That could change. Many sources are not yet digitized, and can only be found in archival boxes collecting dust in remote physical locations. It's still difficult to find digital sources for many topics, such as regional artists. There may be reliable source coverage out there, but the editor will need to do some major research and dig around. Viriditas (talk) 02:49, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep I agree with Skyerise. Notability is supported by the reference: "Giecek's work Near Spring won first prize at the twenty-eight annual Puget Sound Area Exhibition at Seattle's Frye Art Museum." [20]. Seattle is a huge metropolitan area, and a first place there at the Puget Sound exhibition in and of itself denotes notability. WordSeventeen (talk) 03:02, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
He won nearly 30 years ago. Anything more recent from a non-primary source? No. If he was truly notable per Wikipedia standards, there would be more to his career than one prize 29 years ago and finding anything on him in anything but primary sources/his daughter's website/blog. -- WV 03:11, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Comment First place is first place. There is no statute of limitations on a first place win AFAIK just sayin... WordSeventeen (talk) 03:18, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
But there are notability guidelines in Wikipedia and one prize 29 years ago with virtually no sources other than self-published and unreliable do not meet those guidelines. -- WV 03:26, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Comment Which wikipedia guideline states a first prize in a huge art exhibition 29 years ago does not count? Like I said, "Notability is supported by the reference: "Giecek's work Near Spring won first prize at the twenty-eight annual Puget Sound Area Exhibition at Seattle's Frye Art Museum." [21].

I am just putting this AfD in place so that I can address an editor's concern raised on my talk page. McDonald of Kindness (talk) 02:07, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Comment. I believe the editor requesting deletion is mistaken- he claims it's a disparaging article about himself, but it appears to be a relatively NPOV article about another person with the same name. I can't really tell if the subject is notable enough to merit an article, but the editor's objections don't seem to be relevant to this AfD. One fix I suggested would be to make a new article for Ray Marcano (boxer) but, as the editor asserts he's NOT notable[22], an alternative might be to rename the existing one to Ray Marcano (journalist) possibly with redirect from Ray Marcano. --Robin Thayler (talk) 08:35, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure why you think someone would believe an article about someone with the same name but completely different nationality and profession would be about them. In any case, the user has reaffirmed that the article is in fact about him, the journalist (assuming he is who he says he is). ansh666 19:52, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

    I remind you the burden of proof lies in you to find the sources. "There should be sources" is literally an example provided at WP:MUST as an argument to avoid in a deletion discussion. Also, per WP:ANYBIO winning an award is deemed a metric of notability. Notability is not WP:INHERENT if you're only associated with something like the Pulitizer Prize other than winning it.

  • Delete Several users have been trying desperately to get this page deleted, but neither of them qualifies as the sole author of the page so they can't get it speedied - and of course we have no idea who they really are anyhow. However, their wishes are not determinative here. I believe the article can and should be deleted as non-notable. I don't see what being a "Pulitzer Prize juror" has to do with notability; if he had WON a Pulitzer that would be a different story. The claim that he "led" the effort to get Dale Earnhart's autopsy release is not supported by the source [23], which suggests that he and his group supported the effort by the Orlando Sentinel. The claim to being a Fulbright Fellow is not supported by the link [24] and would not confer automatic notability anyhow. Google search does not turn up any additional evidence of notability. --MelanieN (talk) 20:00, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

That could just be a bit of fashion - since the rise of hiphop (where it seems almost obligatory for a performer to have a record (police, not CD) with something more than a parking ticket on it), the use of 'notoriety' by people who don't value the nuances of the English language has increased as they mistake it for 'fame'.

Non Notable due to being on one TV show in 2007 and being in a couple of beauty pagents.Vedasdoom (talk) 06:38, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

A search of the Contra Costa Times shows no mention of her. Likewise a search of Inside Bay Area. There is an article on an ibabuzz blog, but blogs don't confer notability. The Entertainment Weekly material appears to be the words of the subject herself, which don't confer notability either. The two beauty contest results pages are from the pageant organization; if this was notable pageant, there should be independent news coverage. I didn't find any for those contests, but I did come across this.—Anne Delong (talk) 00:06, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
At the bottom hold your mouse over "Ann Tatko-Peterson" and it shows her email address is atatko@bayareanewsgroup.com so she does work for the Bay Area News Group, and they do own Contra Costa Times. So no need to doubt what she has at the top of that site. Being mentioned and quoted in a independent reliable source counts towards notability. Primary sources aren't usually allowed for verifying information in an article, since people could lie. But that rule doesn't affect confirming notability. Dream Focus 00:16, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I think I wasn't clear in my meaning about the contest sites. Having won a contest could confer notability on the subject, but only if it's a notable contest. If no journalists or other authors write about the contest and its winners, this could be because it's a small local event. Also, from reading the policies, I do agree that a blog posting by a real journalist is better than one by a random person, but it's not as indicative of notability as the same as the same text published in an actual newspaper or magazine with an editor selecting and checking what's published. Here's another item about her; not sure if it's independent.—Anne Delong (talk) 03:12, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
The website listing one of the things she won says "One of the Most Popular Pageants in Georgia", so if that was true newspapers in that state might mention it somewhere. Not sure if "Miss Georgia Sweetheart" is a state thing or just one pageant. The coverage of her I mention is of her as a person, not her pageant bits. When the show was on, it was easier to find ample coverage of her in the news. Google news search isn't as great as it used to be. Dream Focus 04:59, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

WP:BLP of a film director and actor, which makes no credible claim to passing WP:CREATIVE and relies entirely on a single reference to a community weekly newspaper (thus not satisfying WP:GNG either.) In addition, the article contains a surprising level of wholly unsourced personal detail (including the names of his parents, wife and kids, until I stripped those as an unsourced WP:BLPNAME violation), intimate and otherwise unverifiable enough that WP:COI editing by someone who knows the subject personally is by far the likeliest explanation. It's certainly possible that he might qualify to keep a well-sourced article, so I'm willing to withdraw this if the sourcing can be substantively improved, but as written this has all the hallmarks of being a promotional piece about a person who aspires to attain notability in the future, rather than an encyclopedia article about a person who's already there.

This appears to be a WP:BLP1E type of situation. Being a working journo is not in itself notable. There seems to be a lack of coverage outside of that short time in Ukraine. duffbeerforme (talk) 06:46, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose: On a short list of western journalists who have covered Ukraine since Euro Maidan with a view to avoiding the mainstream rhetoric, you would have to include Graham Phillips whose extensive photography has recorded most of the major moments of upheaval. There are numerous censorship campaigns going on in Ukraine right now and several journalists have been detained or disappeared, and there is de-facto state law against journalists who don't peddle Kiev's propaganda for them. It's also no secret that Banderist and other pro-EuroMaidan elements have been laboriously editing, censoring, and making a pool of lies out of any Ukraine-related articles. This proposed deletion is just one more of those attempts. Graham Phillips is "notable" enough judging by the number of followers on his twitter feed (over 34,000), and his portfolio on Ukraine is extensive enough, to merit having a Wikipedia entry. Gabriel Arthur Petrie (talk) 14:02, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose: There are many entries of ppl in similar WP:BLP1E type of situations...

There is no sign of notability per WP:GNG. He is an ordinary translator. ●Mehran Debate● 06:55, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep As (full diclosure) a translator myself I think I'm going to have to stick up for Sprachman. Granted that this is a very niche genre. He notes himself in the interview (4) below that the market for translated fiction in the US is very small, and the market for translated Persian fiction is a small fraction of that. So the best-selling translation for 2009 (8) didn't sell very well. But being a (the?) leading translator from a language like Persian ought to count for something. I think that these sources should be enough to write a decent article.

Non-notable academic. Atangana claims a fairly high impact factor by having his papers frequently cited, but an examination of the citations shows that they are largely him or his co-authors citing his own papers. There is no indication that many other authors have cited his work. Atangana publishes exclusively in journals published by Hindawi Publishing Corporation, an open-acces, pay-to-publish organization that has been put under watch by the Beall list for predatory publishing practices. The conferences listed cannot be found except as mentioned in Atangana's papers. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:33, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Atangana is a young researcher that has published 67 papers in his field of expertise in less than 3 years. His research paper appears in top journal like "Vibration and Control", "Computational Physic", "Journal of hydrological processes", "Communication in nonlinear science and numerical simulation" "Neural computing and applications" and others this journals are not open access and in addition, I will like to point out the fact that, almost all the journals in Elsevier, Wiley, Springer and other have open access option does that means they are not good? The conferences list exist and are well-known — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mboctara (talkcontribs) 16:19, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment No, the claim is not that all open access journals are of poor quality. But Hindawi's journals have been called to task by Jeffrey Beall, with specific note that several of their journals have been delisted from Thomson Reuters' Impact Factor listing, some more than once. (See [38]). Also, Atananga's practice of citing his own papers artificially boosts his own citation count within Google Scholar (a poor, but often used measure of an academic's impact). The fact is, there just does not appear to be the necessary indication that Atananga is a person who has had a deep impact on his field of study. Quantity is not the same as quality.

  • Delete. WoS confirms the actual lack of impact of this subject's work. The citation count list is 31, 18, 13, 8, 8, 6 etc, but most of these are him citing himself. For example, of the 31 cites for the highest paper, 22 are his own. For the second paper, 13 of the 18 cites are his own, etc. This is hardly representative of a "leading mathematician". Agricola44 (talk) 20:46, 25 March 2015 (UTC).
  • Delete. Even with self-citations, his h-index is 10, which isn't enough for WP:PROF. Nor does he have the kind of senior position that would satisfy WP:PROF. He gets zero mentions on the Cameroonian web. In the last few years there have been papers applying mathematical techniques to e.g. African diseases. This may make him notable eventually, but so far not yet. -- 120.17.0.71 (talk) 21:47, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete. Hindawi, Naturalspublishing, and Omicsonline are all dubious-quality publishers. Skipping them and counting only the journals from reputable publishers (in this case Springer and Elsevier) in a Google scholar search, we have citation counts 30, 16, 10, 6, 2, 2, 1. (Surprisingly close to the WOS numbers.) Eliminating the self-citations makes the citation record look even worse: 10, 5, 8, 1, etc. I don't want to conclude from this that he is *not* notable: mathematics is a low-citation field and it's possible for important work to be poorly cited. But certainly this means that the publication and citation record by itself provides no evidence of passing WP:PROF#C1. And what else is there? Editorship (not editor-in-chief) of some journals, and a postdoctoral fellowship, neither of which is sufficient for notability. Being a Cameroonian mathematician, maybe, since that is an unusual combination, but we would at least need sources (such as magazine profiles of the subject) saying so, and we don't have even that. —David Eppstein (talk) 23:56, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment @Randykitty: What is a difference between being a member and being a fellow? By being a fellow he also paying his dues. Am I wrong?--Mishae (talk) 22:35, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
A fellow is a member who has met some additional criteria related to his/her knowledge or experience. In some fields/organizations, being a fellow is an indication of distinction and we presume notability (ex: fellows of the IEEE). In medical specialties, even being a fellow is often not an indicator of distinction (ex: fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics are simply board-certified pediatricians). For this organization, the difference does not seem to matter, because he is not a fellow. EricEnfermero (Talk) 00:36, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
What about text book chapters? By that HE MEETS WP:ACADEMIC #1 since not everyone writes chapter books, at least not an ophthalmologist. I might be wrong though, but I never saw a book on optometry as much as on psychiatry.--Mishae (talk) 00:45, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
To me, writing book chapters is a much less significant contribution than authoring "several books that are widely used as textbooks (or as a basis for a course) at multiple institutions of higher education" as criterion 4 specifies. Can we even track down how many/which books we're talking about? EricEnfermero (Talk) 02:09, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
That would be something that you and Randykitty should talk about.--Mishae (talk) 02:21, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
I agree completely with DGG below. Writing book chapters in this field is much important than writing an article. What usually happens if a high-profile researcher accepts to contribute a book chapter is that they hand it over to a (grad) student, who does most of the writing with guidance from the researcher, who also normally vets the final version before submissions. Also, book chapters are often (but not always) only reviewed by the editors (i.e., not really peer-reviewed, like journal articles are). Book editors in STM sometimes have a hard time finding chapter authors, exactly because chapters don't count for much on your CV or when you're up for tenure or promotion, so many people see it as a waste of their time. --Randykitty (talk) 09:01, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete I think Randy has it exactly right. In science, the writing of book chapters is not normally regarded as being anywhere near as important a writing peer reviewed articles. There are some fields of the humanities where it is otherwise--in early medieval history and some related esoteric fields it's the main mechanism of publication. But not in medicine. More generally, "not everybody does whatever" does not necessarily prove the ones who do are notable. The author of a major book even in science or the editor in chief of a major medical textbook is notable. I note, additionally, that a canned bio using terms of praise that does not even list the specific publications is not really good evidence of anything. The authors of even chapters in recent major medical textbooks are generally listed in worldcat. He is not listed there. But I tracked them down in Google Scholar: he has a total of 4 publications-- Three journal articles, cited by only 10, 1, and 0 other papers respectively, and a chapter in a minor review series, cited by 5, which must be the "book" that was intended. And EricEnfermero is of course also right about the significance of Fellow. The firm of physicians needs a better PR agency to write its web pages. DGG ( talk ) 04:09, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Weak keep – Although I don't particularly care who created the article, normally I would agree that the number of GS cites is not enough to indicate that Malleson has been influential in his field. Too soon. But there were two cites to the book: (this) in Business Ethics Quarterly, which was a brief mention ("Should the state do more to facilitate or subsidize the ownership of firms by groups other than investors (Gould 2004; Malleson 2014)...") and (Ethical Perspectives), which was an in-depth review. Weak keep mainly because the Oxford University Press is a very selective publisher and because the Ethical Perspectives review makes it possible to write a detailed description of the book. Question for Agricola44: It seems that both of these journals are indexed in the social sciences edition of the Journal Citation Reports. Is that the same as Web of Science?

Reads like a CV. Weak references. Not notable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zigzig20s (talkcontribs) 00:28, 20 March 2015‎ (UTC)

  • Speedy keep I have no strong feelings on the article one way or the other, but this reeks of WP:POINTed behavior. The nominating editor disagrees with some of my edits on a totally unrelated article, and shortly after improperly tries to speedy this article that I recently edited. This was right after describing it as "creepy" for other editors to watch their edit histories.[39] It's very disruptive when these kinds of arguments spill out into other areas like this, and it poisons the well for productive editing of controversial topics. Grayfell (talk) 02:55, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
No. I said I would not discuss the SAE incident again, so please don't bring it up again and stop attacking me personally. Reem Al Marzouqi's page looks very weak to me--only two references, reads like a CV, doesn't look notable--there is nothing more to it.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:34, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not talking about the SAE, and you don't get to use that as a way to avoid responsibility for your actions. The only plausible reason you even looked at this article was because it was in my edit history. To try and speedy this article (without a valid rational) right after a disagreement appears to be a retaliatory edit. If a neutral party would like to AFD this, I would do the work to actually check and see if there are sources and go from there, but you're not neutral, and this nomination was obviously done in bad faith. Grayfell (talk) 03:47, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
No. This AFD is not about you at all. It's about "Reem Al Marzouqi". Please leave me alone. Don't comment on this if you don't want to.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:58, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not trying to bully you or make things difficult okay? Please try to see it from my perspective. It looks like you followed me to an article I worked on and nominated it for deletion just because we disagreed about an unrelated issue. I think that was inappropriate behavior, and I have a right to explain that. Right? If not, why not? Now you are telling me to leave you alone, and that is very confusing. If you want to be left alone, you should not be following other editors around like that. Grayfell (talk) 04:09, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I saw this article and it looks weak. I don't want to talk to you. I hope I never have to talk to you ever again. Speedily close this stub about a nobody with two weak references as keep if that's what it takes. But you are personalizing Wikipedia instead of looking at this article for what it is.Zigzig20s (talk) 04:24, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
You nominated this article for deletion, so here we are. Don't try and blame this on me picking a fight with you. You keep saying you don't want to talk to me, but you keep insisting on having the last word. You say I'm the one personalizing Wikipedia, but you're the one making grudge edits. Grayfell (talk) 05:32, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
If you have no strong feelings on the article one way or the other why are you voting Speedy anything? Let the AfD continue with comments from people not involved in the feud. I see the nominator, you, Artw and Inicholson are all involved in the SAE dispute. How about letting neutral third parties weigh in? DreamGuy (talk) 16:55, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Honestly, I regret mentioning this AFD on the SAE article's talk page. That was (inadvertent) canvassing on my part. I shouldn't have done that, and I don't think anyone should get involved with this, for or against, just because of that completely unrelated dispute.
My goal is to clearly explain what's going on. I think it's counter-productive to pretend that this isn't a messy nomination with a connection to unrelated wikidrama. I don't like the idea that my willingness to get involved in controversial articles means I have to fear retribution. I don't think that's a good precedent to set, and my understanding is that AFDs can be closed for procedural reasons on those grounds. Grayfell (talk) 22:17, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete - While I can see how some editors believe this was made in bad faith, but even if it were we would have to focus on the merits of the article itself. I see nothing in the article that even sounds like it would meet the criteria for notability on Wikipedia.

  • Delete: The patent in question is a design patent, to be clear, and as Pax said, having a patent does not establish someone's notability. The source in question is not credible enough(youngplus magazine?) to make the claim that she is the first Emirati to be granted a US Patent, I find that dubious Be..anyone. I also feel it is a fallacy for above voters to be attacking the nominator rather than the nomination. Questioning the nominators motives should have been placed as a concise comment, if at all, not as a 'speedy keep' vote that does not even talk about the article at hand. Your intentions may have been good, but this is not the forum for you to continue this dispute, Grayfell. Artw's vote is also improper for the same reason. ― Padenton |  18:08, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

    I'm not at all impressed by the YT statement of the brother, but she did represent UAE on an exhibition with 100 artworks, showing her car as 101st local addition, she's featured in a PDF of her university, and another reference supporting the Jessica Cox connection is also okay. BTW, there are four related patents on the patent search page, she's listed as inventor on all these patents, but only for the specified number she's listed first. Somebody with a clue about {{cite patent}} should fix it, I gave up and tweaked {{cite web}} as better than it was. –Be..anyone (talk) 18:28, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

The "keeps" (all "speedy") are either based on behavior of editors possibly involved in an off-topic disagreement (I didn't check) or the mistaken idea that a patent satisfies notability requirements.

Back on the 27th of February, during my Delete !vote at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Al Kawthar Academy (where the Abu article had been ventured as a merge partner), I opined that both articles ought to be junked. (Two weeks have gone by without any defense appearing at that AfD.) This article contains three dozen sources, not one of which I would describe as a solidly independent RS, and it is written (as I note is typical of these cleric pages created by SPAs) in a florid OR style cribbed from press-releases and pushing the limits of copy-vio (e.g., the first sentence of the "Education" section was pulled from here.).

No real references that I can read. (This is the en wiki, after all). A search brought up self-published sources, I can't any references to the official public office he holds. His degree is confusing. He does scientific research for the president on carpet designs. He's a professor of decorative applied art. The whole article is very, very confusing and at best is so completely culturally out of touch with anything that I am familiar it resembles a hoax.   Bfpage |leave a message  01:29, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

My review: this news(?) article reads like a press release from his carpet company. A newspaper review on his book about carpets. Carpets in the museum and the carpet company. The man's title of the article under discussion is mentioned briefly in passing in the previous article. This is an article that is really about a very specific, very regional, ethnic carpeting, not about the man.
site:news.google.com/newspapers gave no returns. There are books, all with the same title, different years returned from a google book search, but they are unavailable in any form or library. They do list the man as the author. I am guessing the books are catalogs of carpets but that is conjecture. The books are not probably about the man. There are three citations only in an intelligible form from google scholar. No returns from JSTOR. Even after reading the poor translations to English, I still can't grasp the notability of this biography of this living person or even figure out what he does. If someone were to ask me how the encyclopedia was better for having this article, I wouldn't have an answer.

  • Comment. The subject is described as a leading academic expert on Azerbaijani rugs. I am fully prepared to acknowledge that such an expert, on a topic of considerable importance to his country's economy and culture, could be notable. What's not at all clear is that the case for that notability can be made here. For whatever it's worth, note that the Russian Wikipedia version of this article is currently being considered for deletion and (as best I can follow the discussion from the Google translation) the editors there are expressing similar concerns.

The books have been respectfully reviewed in major journals. both his books and his scholarly articles get cited. Even on wikipedia itself, multiple pages on China-related topics link to his page. A full professorship at a major university, along with a string of well-received books that, along with your articles, are cited by scholars who follow you is what notability consists of for history professors. More can quite easily be written about how his work has influenced the field by anyone with the inclination to do so who can access JSTOR and other caches of scholarly book reviews.E.M.Gregory (talk) 15:09, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep Martirosyan is perhaps the most valuable living Armenian linguist in the world. Yes, so far he has authored one book, but that doesn't mean he's not notable. A simple Google Books search yields 237 results for "Hrach Martirosyan"[42], meaning he has been cited by many other scholars. And Google Scholars shows that his 2008 book has been cited 29 times.[43] --Երևանցի talk 02:44, 10 March 2015 (UTC)#
  • (changed)Delete He was a Manoogian Simone Foundation Post-doctoral Fellow from 2009 to 2010 (A notable visiting scholar fellowship) and therefore an influential member of the Armenian Studies Program of the University of Michigan, which is quite remarkable taking into account these programs have a select procedure at picking its participants. See here for his credentials and here for the actual Fellowship and Chair information. --92slim (talk) 17:48, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment I claim no expertise in Armenian studies. But if we were to include every scholar with a published book and a prestigious post-doc, we'd be including many times more people than specified in WP:SCHOLAR. Perhaps a review of his book says something like "the leading scholar of..." or some such. We just need some evidence of his notability. By the way, the book search above returns many books which do not refer to him, but to other people named Hrach or Martirosyan; anyway, he only gets about half as many hits on Google Books and on Google Scholar as I do. --Macrakis (talk) 20:47, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Found the one - Indo-European Etymological Dictionary. From the article: "The Indo-European Etymological Dictionary (commonly abbreviated IEED) is a research project of the Department of Comparative Indo-European Linguistics at Leiden University, initiated in 1991 by Peter Schrijver and others." I think that a project of such a long duration, linguistic importance and caliber, that includes quite a few authors of diverse languages participating in it should prove the claims of his particular notability as a scholar by his inclusion. If we keep it I will contribute to both articles, as they seem fairly interesting to be honest. --92slim (talk) 22:22, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it shows that he is a serious scholar. But the criteria at WP:SCHOLAR are much more stringent than that. --Macrakis (talk) 14:24, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
I have checked the criterias again, and based on Criterion 1, there is still a possibility of saving the article probably. He participated in these:
Let me know your input --92slim (talk) 15:29, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
The "in honor of" conferences might be evidence for the notability of Stepan Bakhshyan and Jos Weitenberg, et al., but not for Martirosyan. Being on the program committee of an international conference doesn't count for much. Wikipedia isn't supposed to be an archive of scholars' CVs or a source of bibliographic data. --Macrakis (talk) 19:42, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
In that case, we should delete Rick Derksen as well, for example. And maybe Diakonoff. Because neither meet the criteria either if so. Having just one book isn't enough of a reason to delete him in my opinion, because his book has a elevated price in the market, and there must be a reason - which I attribute to his notability. If he was just another author (he is an etymologist, sorry didn't clarify before), he wouldn't sell it for 250 dollars a piece. In any case, I wouldn't necessarily be against the deletion of the article, because it is not going to affect the importance of his work. There are also plenty of pseudo-scholars on Wikipedia we could delete, so I understand your point nevertheless.
Just to clarify, the description of his book is key to my decision: "There are many valuable systematic handbooks, studies and surveys on comparative Armenian linguistics. Almost all of these works, with a few exceptions, mostly concentrate on Classical Armenian and touch the dialects only sporadically...This book provides an up-to-date...lexical, phonetic, and morphological material in the Armenian dialects into the etymological treatment of the Indo-European lexicon. In this respect it is completely new." Classical Armenian is not spoken, thus rendering his only book invaluable in my humble opinion. If we were talking about a language that has been analyzed well, then I wouldn't bother to defend the article. --92slim (talk) 21:15, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
I agree, Derksen should probably be deleted. But Diakonoff has plenty of evidence of notability, including three volumes in his honor, an article about him (not by him) in the Encyclopedia Iranica, an honorary degree from the University of Chicago, etc. etc. --Macrakis (talk) 21:21, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Re the price, (a) this is hardly an encyclopedic criterion; (b) Brill charges a lot in general; (c) highly specialized academic books have a very limited audience, so unit cost will be high. --Macrakis (talk) 12:58, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
That is certainly true. I will use this page as a reference for future edits, as I understand the scholar requirements now - a bit tricky I may say. Let's get rid of the article. --92slim (talk) 17:55, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

No reliable sources AnSq (talk) 06:05, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment - 1. In general, I don't believe that YouTube is a reliable source. While the sources are actual interviews, which is where I might make an exception, I think that the presentation of these ones have some problems. The biggeest of these is in the title: it (ref 6) says that it's "The Truth" about the Holocaust, which it clearly isn't. The video description further expands on this with an idiotic Holocaust denying rant. The description on the other video (ref 3) literally uses the phrase "Jewish question".
2. The Spanish article is even worse. It's much shorter and has only two references, one of which is a dead link. I suppose the second source (in French, with no link; ref 5 in the English version) is fine as long as it actually says that, although I can't verify it. Maybe saying "no" reliable sources was an exaggeration.
3. Google sites (ref 1) is not a reliable source for anything, especially people.
4. Ref 2 appears to be a direct copy of a no longer existing Frech Wikipedia article.
5. Ref 4 is to a website dedicated to Holocaust denial. I do not consider Holocaust denial organizations to be reliable sources on anything, including Holocaust denial.
6. Just in general, I don't believe that this person is especially notable.

Many claims now in the article, such as "is a professor" I could not source.

Comment The sole mention of his name that I have found so far in a reliable news source is in a blog on Le Monde discussing a petition opposing the Gayssot Act, where his name is mentioned in a list of what Le Monde calls "Holocaust deniers" who have signed the petition.E.M.Gregory (talk) 13:01, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Nonnotable survivor of Nazi death camp. I gave the article creator a reasonable amount of time to find good references. Unfortunately what we got is insufficient. THe only one ref which talks about this person in some detail is a local newspaper, half of which is a long quote from his memoir book. From it we only know that he survived death camp (without any notable activity besides an escape attempt) and also that he is a good teacher. Here are the references:

    A f.uorom entry with a copy of an old Soviet article, an interview with Bunelik about another Soviet hero; nearly nothing about Bunelik himself

Conclusion: All refs but one are not good enough for wikipedia. A single newspaper eulogy about a good teacher is insufficent for a wikipedis article. Sorry. Staszek Lem (talk) 22:53, 7 March 2015 (UTC) Staszek Lem (talk) 22:53, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
