Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Brigham Young University residence halls[edit]

Before moving this back to the mainspace, please indicate how this new version undoes the shortcomings that lead to the delete at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Brigham Young University residence halls. Perhaps a WP:DRV may be a solution here? Fram (talk) 11:47, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

I did not see the previous cycle through mainspace to draft, but the article does look better in terms of at least somewhat secondary references. (A discussion of the level of independence of the Y from Deseret News may be appropriate at some point in this discussion). While I agree that there is some level of WP:OTHERSTUFF, there have apparently been little or no effort to review the others in that category, and as such, singling out this one out doesn't seem appropriate. I fully support a WP:DRV, but I would hope that the WP:DRV would consider the current situation with the article, and perhaps generate a more global consensus as to articles like this type and Housing at Virginia Commonwealth University should exist.Naraht (talk) 14:43, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
My student worker, Amgisseman, has added more secondary sources to help with notability requirements (the Daily Herald isn't owned by the LDS church) as well as other sources. She took out some external links, consolidated some excessively detailed tables, and fixed broken references. The main question is if there is consensus that The Daily Herald articles support notability. I also found some Salt Lake Tribune articles on housing and I added one to the Heritage Halls section. I believe that the nine Herald articles demonstrate "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." What do you think?

  • Recreate The article has a lot more indepdent sources now. I think Deseret News should be counted as independent as well. While both it and BYU are controlled by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they are in seperate lines of control, and BYU has a campus newspaper that reports on campus related material. Outside newspapers doing reporting shows notability.John Pack Lambert (talk) 14:08, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
Reviewing the sources, they include The Daily Herald, the Salt Lake Tribune, the Deseret News, and Fox 13, so I think that is more than enough third party references for a list article. Most of those have been used multiple times, too. Since the version that was deleted has been significantly improved to the current version, I am going to be WP:BOLD and move it back to mainspace. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 23:04, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
