From VfD[edit]

  • Tim Girvin - Looks very much like a vanity page. -戴&#30505sv 01:46, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • (not voting, yet) Perhaps not. This [1] seems to indicate that Tim Girvin created the logos (& stuff) for lots of famous movies (The Matrix, Apocalypse Now, Braveheart, etc.). So I think he passes the "encyclopedic" test, and I kinda doubt he'd have nothing better to do than create vanity pages. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 02:07, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • update: Yahoo Finance, Puget Sound Business Journal , Retail Traffic (on Bellagio redesign). I can't believe anyone is this good at inventing themselves, so I vote keep, move to cleanup. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 02:17, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete - don't let the above fool you. Yahoo Advertising section, Local section of a business journal, and "Retail traffic" advertising magazine. Any company can show a local paper listing and a couple of companies they advertise through. - Texture 03:56, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
      • well, the yahoo finance is about a company in the "advertising" section, not a section of yahoo that takes advertising. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 12:27, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
      • not just "any company"; they have hundreds of well-known clients [and high-res links to work they've done for many of them].
    • Assuming the guy's webpage is accurate I think he's famous enough to warrant an article. However I think we need outher sources for purposes of verifiablility. --Imran 12:35, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Doesn't look like a vanity page. Anthony DiPierro 21:37, 3 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • From Cleanup: "Tim Girvin - smelled like a vanity page to me at first and I thought to vfd it, but very soon I changed my mind for some reason. 300-some Google hits. Linked from The Evergreen State College as "notable student and alumni". Girvin's page created by User but the same IP also created the school's page and listed Girvin in it. From IRC: "<Imran> Optim: According to Girvin's own website he was responsible for the design of the electronic version of EB". I have no time to check it more, so someone please do a research and expand the article so that it will explain to the reader why this person is encyclopaedic and why he is important. If you make it vfd-proof, you win a wikicookie :) if u see that this person is not important, vfd it. Optim 01:13, 2 Feb 2004 (UTC)"
    • Tentatively vfd-prufed. +sj+ 09:00, 2004 Feb 5 (UTC)
    • Delete: nobody in particular. "Vfd-prufed"? I don't think so; it reads like a summary of his resume, i.e., like an advertisement. 300 Google hits? So what. My given name gets more than 1000 and I'm nobody in particular too. Wile E. Heresiarch 07:23, 6 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Since I often edit pages I don't have VfD opinions of, a clarification: Keep. Mildly famous; not an ad. I will be overjoyed if we one day have one-paragraph bios of the founders and ceos of the country's 10,000 greatest companies. +sj+ 10:37, 2004 Feb 6 (UTC)
    • Likely Evergreen State College created their own page and then Tim's page as a "famous alum". Keep. Weave 16:05, 2006 Jul 5 (UTC)

This is not a vanity page. Tim Girvin is not only a designer himself, but a design firm that holds some very prestigious clients.
