Move page[edit]

Whoops! This page needs to be moved to Bang! (novel). Sorry. I can do this later this weekend unless someone wants to take care of it for me. Roseclearfield (talk) 22:03, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

 Done --Kudpung (talk) 03:04, 5 March 2011 (UTC)


If this is not going to be expanded further, maybe it would be worth considering merging it to the author's page. --Kudpung (talk) 03:53, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

This is going to be expanded greatly in the next week as part of a school project (see link in assignment tag above). Thanks for helping with the move! Roseclearfield (talk) 02:30, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
It will need to be expanded very soon because at the moment it is unsourced and does not not assert notability according to WP:BK, and will face a formal WP:MERGE request. --Kudpung (talk) 07:08, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I suggest that "in the next week" is an entirely acceptable timescale. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 09:46, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. The end results of this current school assignment are due this coming Monday. People are welcome to assist the students, but please, please hold off on AFD and other deletion actions until after that point. If, after that point any of the new articles are not up to snuff, I suspect there will be a number of AFDs started. But given the assignment is currently in progress, and has only a week more to go, I hope everyone can wait that week before taking deletion actions. - TexasAndroid (talk) 14:59, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
This project was not fully completed by the student. Looks like it may be up for deletion. Thanks for humoring me (the teacher). Roseclearfield (talk) 04:53, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I fully appreciate that this article may be part of the Ambassador programme, but it has now been live long enough without references and assertion of notability, and main space is not an area for experimentation. It must now either be PRODed, sent to WP:AfD, redirected, or preferably userfied to the user space of the creator or one of the principal editors until it is ready for the encyclopedia. Let me know what you want to do, otherwise I'll go ahead and WP:CSD it. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 06:22, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
What CSD criteria does it fall under? --Guerillero | My Talk 10:23, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
None actually. It was a slip of terminology. I meant AfD because that's the only way it will get deleted, or proven to be a notable book and kept, unless of course the creator blanks the page. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 14:33, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
It is now several weeks since we were told that the project was due to finish within the week. The articel has been expanded somewhat, but I see no evidence of enough notability to justify a freestanding article. I think a redirect to the author's page would be sufficient. JamesBWatson (talk) 15:32, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. A fair compromise. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:36, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Although I'm no admin, I would agree that a redirect is fine. Having done some of the research for the article, I see that Flake's major literary contribution is The Skin I'm In, not Bang. Almost all the significant coverage I found centered on The Skin I'm In and included a passing reference to Bang as simply another piece written by the author. Next year, I'll have students working on new articles develop the article entirely on their userspace before a move. Thanks. Roseclearfield (talk) 00:01, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
I will set up the redirect. If sources become available in the future it will be simple just to edit the page--Guerillero | My Talk 00:46, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
