  • Do you mean video/gaming or did you mean it as videogames as in just the videogame arm? The way it's phrased in the argument here is a little confusing, as I mostly associate them with movies. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:33, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Damn! I'm not sure where did I read a company that made video-games, it doesn't appear now. I just read it again, and find it was a production house, investing to make and distribute movies. It probably should be notable. However, I remember googling the subject (tab still open) up to first 5 pages, finding nothing substantial. Someone at least, for the AfD sake would take the task to find sources and improve the present article. I'm open to withdraw this nomination if multiple reliable sources with substantial coverage of the subject shown. For now, I need a nap for myself. Anupmehra -Let's talk! 09:48, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm finding a bit, although you'll generally have to search for just "Trimark" since that's how they were referred to because of the multiple, multiple titles used for them. I am finding reference of them in places such as this Rutgers University Press book, but it's a lot to wade through. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:51, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

The article is about the youth arm of an irredentist organization in Albania. Minimal coverage in Albanian news and off course not the slightest info about it English-speaking press/web. For certainty it doesn't meet notability criteria for organizations per Wikipedia:Notability_(organizations_and_companies): Trivial or incidental coverage of a subject by secondary sources is not sufficient to establish notability. Alexikoua (talk) 11:53, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Oppose Alexikoua seems to make an ethnic POV here. As it is clear this organization is the youth organization of the Fourth Largest Political Party in Albania, PDIU, and not of any irredentist organization as he implies. There are more than 55 thousand hits] on google, so it is not "minimal coverage" as he implies. As such, I do not see how, it does not meet the ntability criteria.Balkanian`s word (talk) 07:32, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Comment: It appears that the hits of the above link in google are in fact only [23] and not 55,000 (?). Off course all 23 hits are from some ultranationalistic blogs (not a single url in English). The PDIU is an irrendetist organization and his youth arm one of many irrendetist groups of minimal importance as the very view hits show in googleAlexikoua (talk) 10:30, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Comment: It happens too many times, that editors just do not read before proposing to delete. Club of Young Patriots is the youth organization of Party for Justice, Integration and Unity, the fourth largest political party in Albania, having 5 out of 140 MPs in the Parliament. By the way, it is not irredentist as its program shows; it aims no border changes. As for English, you may search in English, in order to have English results, like this for example from one of the leading TV in Albania.Balkanian`s word (talk) 12:10, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
That's not an arguments to keep or not. Notability is minimal with only "23" google hits (most of them self published sites that just mention its name in Albanian only). For certain it doesn't pass notability standarts.Alexikoua (talk) 12:52, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Oh yeah, and here are some more sources: [8] [9] [10] Jinkinson talk to me 03:16, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Comment Sorry I don't have a lot of experience editing Wikipedia? I have tried to a number of times and am just so bad at understanding basic coding, but please don't fault me for that... The sources of this article, however, are mostly from Mr. Bast himself. That is why I doubt this person's notability. They have done little besides publish a few books, and I know lots of people who have published books that are not on Wikipedia. I think combining the information here with the information on the Heartland Institute's page could be a solution, but I am genuinely unsure of how to do that. As I mentioned, I'm not good with this stuff, but I'm trying to get better. Tiakat333 (talk) 03:21, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak delete He does have some claim to notability as someone heading an organisation which has been in the news and as someone whose opinion has been sought multiple times by the media. But the articles cited by Jinkinson don't provide much in the way of information about him; they just cite him as an expert or a spokesman for Heartland, and are nowhere near meeting WP:GNG. The links on the article don't qualify as independent and reliable sources: most are by Bast, with some blog and user-generated content. I can't find reviews of his publications in mainstream publications. But a couple more references from reliable sources that actually say something about Bast might establish notability. A merge to Heartland Institute could be possible. --Colapeninsula (talk) 16:38, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep w/o prejudice to a subsequent merger into a broader article when an appropriate one is created. "Savage Dragon" is a major comics franchise with a very large number of spinoff projects from its main title [11] (partial list), which are too extensive to cover in the article on the flagship title. Whether to cover these individually or in umbrella articles is an editorial decision, but wiping out existing coverage because it is woefully incomplete would be a bad choice.

Contested PROD. I think that this article fails the WP:GNG criteria as well as the musician-specific notability guidelines. He's been one of many members of a notable group, which does not make him notable himself. The only real notability argument here is that he inherits some notability from his father, but notability is not inherited in this case. Ducknish (talk) 01:36, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Comment. I would point out that the majority of sources cited here seem to only prove the existence of the artist and albums and not any notability thereof. Ducknish (talk) 02:29, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

The guidelines seem to ask for the fact that supported sources be noted to denote coverage of the artist in question are provided by credible third party sources - the subject was given an editors pick in Downbeat magazine for his first CD as a Leader and the CD is on a highly respected NY label. He has received a Grammy nomination for his work - you are not going by the guidelines which ask for common sense to be used I feel - i can provide multiple pages on wikipedia that dont match the music noteriety standard you are asking for - again, you are not being objective in your reading of the guidelines i feel - which provide for artists like this one - you might not understand the importance of playing with Rashied Ali as well as more traditional artists - this is unfortunate if so. 24.228.254.55 (talk) 08:47, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Follow up: I have tried to read the guidelines. This says: General notability guideline Shortcuts: WP:GNG WP:SIGCOV If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to be suitable for a stand-alone article or list. In my opinion, A review in Downbeat magazine (The Leading Jazz magazine) for Mr Mitchell's own CD (an editor's pick no less), reviews in JazzTimes, The Chicago Reader (sources viewable here: http://www.tylermitchelljazz.com/contact.html) would be "significant coverage" "in (a) reliable sources" plus articles and interviews in AllAboutJazz (as referenced) 24.228.254.55 (talk) 02:51, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep and improve. While a lot of the sources cited in the article don't directly cover Mitchell, the All About Jazz interview gives him a lot of column-inches, and the DownBeat review, while short, shows attention. I think the best fate for this article right now is to keep it and work on improving it. If, in three to six months, the article hasn't improved, then I'd say a second AfD is in order. However, I think the article needs some time to develop (which it hadn't had before the AfD tag went up), and I think that enough claims of notability are made that the development can take place in the main article space. —C.Fred (talk) 13:13, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

I agree with the nominator about the likely inaccuracy of the given population (151,515 seems the most likely, though I have not found a sufficiently strong primary source to replace with that), and much of the article text is needing substantial pruning/renovation, but that is a matter for normal editing; complete absence of an article on a town of this size is not the answer.

Categories[edit]

April 21[edit]

NEW NOMINATIONS[edit]

Category:Jewish villages in the Ottoman Empire[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Rename, refining to match the category explanation and its contents. Alternatively, rename to Jewish villages in Ottoman Syria, to match the parent and article Ottoman Syria. (Ottoman Palestine redirects to that page.) Note that the sibling categories Category:Jews in Ottoman Palestine‎ and Category:Rabbis in Ottoman Palestine‎ were created by splits from "X in Ottoman and British Palestine" per CFD 2012 Nov 13 and CFD 2012 Dec 12. If anyone thinks those should be merged/renamed to "Ottoman Syria" rather than "Ottoman Palestine", say so and I will withdraw this and nominate all 3 together. – Fayenatic London 10:44, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The Ottoman Empire is by far the commonly used term for that area during this era. If anything, Ottoman Syria would be a better alternative than Ottoman Palestine as you yourself suggested, but the current title is the right one and should not be changed. Yambaram (talk) 12:01, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Category:Prehistoric fantasy films[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Rename to fit with others in Category:Films by period of setting. Also, not all are fantasy; there are other genres here e.g. comedy. – Fayenatic London 09:41, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Category:Works by John Mellencamp[edit]

Nominator's rationale: I created this category to host his work and other navigational bits and pieces. A "Works of..." category isn't necessary because he hasn't created in so many media as to be unnavigable. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:09, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Category:Category definition templates[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Merge. I created this in 2010. Next month, Category:Cathead was created, which was later renamed as the target category. This has the same purpose and is better populated. – Fayenatic London 07:50, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Media Idee • ( talk | logs | links | watch | afd ) • [revisions] Enter your reasoning here and then click the "Save page" button below -115.186.121.30 (talk) 20:37, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello. The Page 'Media Idee' was deleted for the company not being notable at the time.

Since then, the following are some of the projects that have gotten it into the limelight:

The biggest one is the Organization of the first ever Dolphin Show in Pakistan. Please see http://www.dolphinshow.org/partner.php and www.facebook.com/dolphinshowkarachi for proof that MI was the main organizer. Just Google 'Dolphin Show Karachi' and you will get about a 100 links back from major media companies in the country discussing that including some that actually Cite Media Idee. This is one FB page which lists the event's as MI: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Media-Idee/346860588664883.

Some pages which list MI are: http://tcsconnect.com/dolphin-show-ticket-12897.html

X mark.svg Not done - this Requests for Undeletion process is only for articles that were deleted uncontroversially, and does not apply to articles deleted after a deletion discussion. Since the article you are here about was deleted after a discussion took place at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Media Idee, it cannot be undeleted through this process. However, if you believe that the outcome of the discussion did not reflect the consensus of the participants, or that significant new information has come to light since the article was deleted, you may contact the administrator who closed the discussion, user Mark Arsten (talk · contribs). After you do so, if your concerns are not addressed and you still seek undeletion, a request may be made at deletion review. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 05:47, 21 April 2014 (UTC)


Please note that User MARK ARSTEN is no longer available to talk to. The company in question is now quite notable as can be verified through links pasted above. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 125.209.82.46 (talk) 11:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

review of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Media Idee[edit]

User:JagDeCat has asked on my talk page for the article to be undeleted. Given that two of the four participants voiced the likelihood that there were refs out there (though maybe in another language), I'm inclined to support the undeletion request. Maybe undelete and move to Draft? Stuartyeates (talk) 03:51, 6 April 2014 (UTC) Hi Stuart. Mark's not around at the moment, so it would be best to ask another admin. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 09:00, 6 April 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by JagDeCat (talkcontribs)
