Notability[edit]

I'll try a search of my own later, but unless this article gets multiple, reliable sources that verify that it is notable, I'll request it be deleted. Qwyrxian (talk) 07:15, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Reference I removed, re-added by another[edit]

The reason I removed the EACD reference is, not because it doesn't say the section it's connected to, but because I don't think it meets the requirements of WP:RS. For me, that posting is nothing more than a press release, routine coverage by an involved group, promoting the activities of a related group. It doesn't report on WFAD as much as it promotes an event they are running. I mean, I guess it isn't horrible if it stays, but I will say that it does nothing to solve the notability problem. So, I won't re-remove it, but I am concerned that this organization isn't notable. A Google News search doesn't turn up anything in reliable English sources; there are a few non-English sources, but I can't read them so I'm not sure if they help. I see that famous people have spoken at WFAD events, but that doesn't necessarily make WFAD notable (since notability isn't inherited). Anyone have any suggestions about where to look for good sources? Qwyrxian (talk) 09:13, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
