I say it's notable, people!
Why this page should not be deleted:
This page is for a notable website and is not advertising. It satisfies Wikipedia's guidelines:
1) The content itself has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent of the site itself 2) This criterion includes reliable published works in all forms, such as newspaper and magazine articles, books, television documentaries, and published reports by consumer watchdog organizations. 3) The website or content has won a well-known, reputable, and independent award, either from a publication or organisation
Wikipedia guidelines for an article to be included in the encyclopedia: 1) To be worth including in the encyclopedia a subject must be sufficiently notable and that notability must be verifiable through references to reliable sources. 2) These sources should be reliable (some examples include (but are not limited to): books published by major publishing houses, newspapers, magazines, peer-reviewed scholarly journals)
All the information is verifiable and is from good sources (i.e. have a reputation for reliability)
On top of it, the editor/moderator spent all but 1 second on viewing the page. The article meeds all the criteria to be included in Wikipedia.

As the page doesn't have any advertising material, I will remove the banners as the subject headline says!
- I cleaned up the lede earlier, but the article body still has a lot of strange or chatty promotional language - it still needs addressing. --McGeddon (talk) 10:53, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
A user just removed this interview.
I restored it. It is not a source which could be cited, but as a community interview, I do not think it is promotional. Reddit interviews are sometimes included in external links sections, and I think it is okay here. Any contrary opinion? Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:35, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
- It doesn't seem much of an "interview" - I only count seven responses from Goyal on the loaded page, most of them short and uninsightful comments about a favourite superhero or meal. --McGeddon (talk) 14:41, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
- I removed the link because it serves no purpose to the article. Reddit AMA's can be useful, but in one such as this where they dodge half the questions and only answer when it benefits them, it really does seem like simple publicity. Geesi (talk) 06:49, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
