Article creator[edit]

This article was created by Latimeronline (talk · contribs) on behalf of the subject (this was not concealed). I presume Latimeronline 1 (talk · contribs) is the same editor, but in any case Latimeronline changed their name to DURBACH (talk · contribs) at my request. The other 2 accounts are now routinely blocked per our username policy. I'm putting this here to avoid confusion. Dougweller (talk) 16:40, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

JeffA87 (talk · contribs) is probably the same, as well. I believe one should be blocked. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 05:41, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Individual illusions[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
These individual illusions were nominated for deletion, and the outcome was merge. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jason Latimer's Laser Fiction. Kraxler (talk) 15:23, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

I suggest that the individual illusions be merged into this article. Examples include:

I'm not sure I tagged all of them. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 17:51, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, by all means merge those into this article. --bonadea contributions talk 15:20, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

... and ... I would propose the same for those of David Copperfield's specific illusions, except the ones which have considerably more material, even though David Copperfield is significantly more notable than Jason Latimer. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 05:39, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Merge them all. There's absolutely no reason to have all these articles unless a particular illusion/trick/whatever manages to become independently notable with healthy RS support. freshacconci talk to me 14:11, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

{{notability}} tag[edit]

I'm still not sure he's notable, but I suppose winning the "Grand Prix" award in 2003, together with being one of the three magicians in The Magicians series 2 is probably adequate. However, I would need to do more research to be sure. Anything else notable about him? — Arthur Rubin (talk) 06:08, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I am the graphic artist for LFX, Inc. because of the COI, I think its best to point in the right direction to research instead of me posting more up there. Jason was the online spokesperson for all the commercials Buick's "Quest for the Keys" ( He's the designer of special effects behind GM/Buick's car launches of the Detroit Autoshow, NAAS. His designs are actually what started LFX. The effects such as The Latimer Clear Cups were quite a step in the magic community thats why he won the world championships at 22. Even if you are not a magic enthusiast you should check it out. It was a "first ever" type of thing, thats why it has the attention (referenced in history books on magic, history of magic videos, history of magic series on the BBC etc) as well as his laser effect...because the trick did not exist prior to JL ever. Its not a new way to do was never done before. Each of those videos have millions of hits on youtube, which is why Jason was on the first YouTube Live Show in San Francisco in 2008 (not sure on the year, you would have to check it). It was when YouTube decided to put on a live show with artists Katy Perry and Akon their most popular artists on youtube in one live show. Sorry for just listing details but I hope that helps instead of hinders the process. Thank you for looking into it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DURBACH (talkcontribs) 19:23, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm removing the notability template, what I've seen is definitely sufficient. I think the other articles should be merged with this one. I'll also note we don't use our own articles as sources or provide references for see also wikilinks. Dougweller (talk) 19:30, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
