Amanda Dowler[edit]

The discovery of the body of a missing schoolgirl hardly meets global notability requirements necessary for inclusion. This event will have no global impact and it is not the topic of regular news coverage worldwide. The fact that there is an article on the topic does not make it notable enough for inclusion here. It is an interesting news item but it has no global impact. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 23:55, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Dodgers 11-10 win over Padres in 2006, featuring four consecutive home runs[edit]

This was removed on the grounds of non-notability. Four consecutive home runs in a Major League Baseball game is a rare event, which makes this game notable IMHO. Please discuss. Darcyj (talk) 00:54, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

This is an interesting bit of trivia, but it isn't a globally notable event. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 01:37, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
On that logic, there would be much less baseball material on Wikipedia, and perhaps nothing at all about Curling or Gaelic Football or other sports peculiar to a particular country or culture. Let alone non-global information in other fields of knowledge. Where is the line drawn? Darcyj (talk) 02:41, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
For the most part sports events are limited to social milestones and major world records. This logic wouldn't limit the amount of baseball material on Wikipedia, just in the days of the year pages. See WP:DOY. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 03:05, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
Gotcha. So five consecutive home runs - which would be a unique record - might be notable? I'll await the answer to that if it ever happens. Cheers. Darcyj (talk) 07:37, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

2008 – Dean Winchester was saved.[edit]

In addition to being written in the wrong tense, this refers to a character on the US television show "Supernatural", presumably an event in the story. Far from notable and possibly vandalism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:26, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
