This is a person's personal information. It is also linked from jazz articles, which obviously dont mean to link to this useless article.

Votes for Deletion[edit]

  • Jim Hall - sounds like an autobiography. Antonio Rehab Runaway Martin
    • Keep. (It smells like autobio as well: the smart-ass has already created the link from his home page to this article!) But the guy did do something sensible and IMO deserves here not less than half-known pop-artists. However the page requires proper disambig: it turns out there are quite a few Jim Halls already mentioned in Wikipedia (e.g., see the back-links). Mikkalai 08:07, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep and turn into a disambig page -- Graham :) 11:48, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Self agrandising, but deserves his entry. I've disambig'd it, he's now at Jim Hall (programmer). ShaneKing 12:37, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Of some significance. --Daniel C. Boyer 14:01, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete - I'm in the minority, but autobiographies need to be removed or labelled as questionable - the person writing their own autobiography cannot be NPOV - Texture 16:21, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
      • It seems you didn't bother to look at the article. Pure facts, not a single opinion. So the only percievable problem is that he is lying. Mikkalai 16:43, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep The article is not an autobiography. While doing reasearch on free operating systems I came accross the article on FreeDos. In that was a link to the uncreated Jim Hall article. I started it, and as I did not have copious amounts of information on Mr. Hall asked him to contribute to the article. He added one sentence, the last of the first paragraph. I'll admit the article is lacking, but that hardly counts as autobiographical. Goofyheadedpunk
    • Why not pursuade somebody to write about _FreeDOS_, then mention him there. --Palapala 00:22, 21 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Merge with FreeDOS and redirect. Wile E. Heresiarch 16:39, 21 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. Elf-friend 23:41, 21 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Verifiable and "big enough". BL 09:53, Feb 22, 2004 (UTC)
