This page holds the list of articles currently been reviewed to decide if they can be improved or sent for deletion. This is to clear out the backlog of subs and separate the advertisements and non-notable ones from those that are seeds that an article can be grown from. We have a weekly list of around 20 articles generated with the CatScan tool. For each article, we aim to flag as good those stubs that can be improved, blatantly useless those that can be speedily deleted, and the less clear-cut ones can be sent to AfD for a broader community view.

Please read the articles and search for sources, then add a comment saying what you have found, including any sources (please add these to the article too!) and with a recommendation (Speedy/Improve/AfD). In the case of 'speedies' please tag the article, too. This is not a vote, so please look at ones that have not been reviewed first.

At the end of the week (Wednesday), we tie it off by tidying up the 'improves,' nominating the 'AfDs,' and checking in on the 'speedies.'

Added July 21[edit]

AfD I'm not seeing any documented evidence that shows he passes WP:MANOTE. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep if claims can be verified, otherwise AfD Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Neutral Lots of google hits, but mainly passing mentions like "so and so was certified to teach self-defense by NWMAF". Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD The only claim to notability is founding a style and I can't find reliable sources to show that style is notable. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD No sources to back up claims. Three time European grand champion is a possible claim to notability, but it's unsourced and doesn't say of what organization or event. Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Mainly based on the fact that there are no sources for the claims. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD I don't see notability as a martial artist or newsman. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Fails WP:MANOTE and WP:GNG. Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Clearly fails WP:MMANOT. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Fails WP:MMANOT. Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep This is a bit stronger case for keep than some others, who have won only a single medal.
AfD Relatively new martial arts system and article has no independent sources. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Weak AfD Fails WP:MMANOT, but has 18 fights. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD because the article has no sources--just 2 links to a picture of him. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep if sources can be found to support claims, otherwise AfD Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD He wouldn't meet the notability criteria even if the claims were sourced, which they're not. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Don't see notability or sources. Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep The article could use a complete rewrite and some more independent sources, but the supported claim of being adopted as a UK police standard is sufficient for me. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Article has no sources that show it's a notable martial art. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AFD Don't see notability. Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Don't see why this is under WPMA Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Fixed: [1] jmcw (talk) 09:06, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
Weak AfD Article doesn't really show notability, but the 2 books referenced may support the claim that many Wing Chun practictioners descend from him. Could use input from a Wing Chun expert. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Unsourced BLP. His work and books may or may not be notable, but without sources the article shows no reason to keep. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Another unsourced BLP. Even with sources I don't see the notability. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Does claim he's won a world championship, but no sources and I haven't heard of the organization. Astudent0 (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD Another BLP that is basically unsourced. Claims like he taught many grandmasters of various styles really need references. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep, if claims can be verified Article has no independent sources. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
clearly non-notable as a martial artist No sources to support any martial arts claim. Can't comment on notability as a comic artist. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep Article could use a rewrite and definitely needs better sources, but he is notable in wushu. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
AfD I just don't see the subject's notability in this article. Papaursa (talk) 21:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Left overs[edit]

Articles that are still under debate from past weeks.

Weak AfD Winner of a single international medal (1986 Asian games). I don't think that's quite enough, but others have disagreed. Papaursa (talk) 23:20, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Requested Reviews[edit]

To Do[edit]

  • Scouting: Look over the shorter MA articles (CatScan[2]) and mark candidates with 'notability' tag.
  • Send past weeks' articles (with two afd comments) to afd (use good faith judgement).
  • Tag oldest, reviewed articles with [[Category:Martial arts review 2010]]
