Going by the creator's name, there is a WP:COI... The problem as always is notability.

GScholar claims 52 cites for the book (Constitutional & Administrative Law) - this being said, 2016 is the 9th edition of the book, so one would assume it sells reasonably well. All in all, I still think it is too little for WP:PROF. TigraanClick here to contact me 16:33, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

No notability. I could find no sources at all for "Marama Kadavula", and "NS Bala" yields only false positives. It may be that hindi sources could help, but I suspect not. TigraanClick here to contact me 16:27, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

This article consists of WP:OR and WP:SYNTH with a generous dollop of WP:COATRACK. It has seen no substantive improvement since a previous AFD closed as "no consensus" 3 years ago. Topic is already covered at articles including Anti-Arabism, Anti-Iranian sentiment, Anti-Turkism, and Islamophobia. E.M.Gregory (talk) 16:29, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Note: The previous AFD was Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anti Middle Easterner sentiment. --doncram 01:58, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete - If there are other articles that technically deal with the exact same topic (like Islamophobia, for one), then this definitely should go. Very superfluous. Parsley Man (talk) 23:48, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep: As you may see all parts of the article are sourced[1]. Anti-Arabism and Anti Middle Easterner sentiment are different. Anti-Arabism is more focused on arabs only but anti middle east is about all the middle eastern people.[2] So why to delete to whole article? any other reason? Anti-Arabism probably is a term better reserved for racist actions targeted specifically against Arabs, which I would expect would be more common in places like the Middle East, where Arabs are part of a mixed Middle Eastern population. "don't worry about repeating information." If article have any problem OK, fix it, but there is no acceptable reason for deleting a well sourced article, which can also expanded even more. The article is not about "Anti-Arabism, Anti-Iranian sentiment, Anti-Turkism, and Islamophobia", none of these. It is about Anti-Middle Eastern evidences, some of the victims are not Arabs, Iranian, Turks or even Muslim! and they were just stereotyped as Middle Easterner.[3]. Any edit or fixation to article is totaly welcomed, but deleting this article, actually based on no true reason . Please come and edit and contribute to the article , but no reason for deleting this article and these sourced facts and evidence. The article is different from "Anti-Arabism, Anti-Iranian sentiment, Anti-Turkism, and ..." and stuff like that. It is different Topic. KhabarNegar Talk 08:02, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
Note to closing admin: User talk:KhabarNegar is the creator of the page that is the subject of this AfD.
  • Weak Delete/Redirect to Islamophobia (maybe?) - So the first glaring problem is that the sources aren't about the concept "Anti-Middle Eastern sentiment"; they're examples of what could be described as such. Taking a bunch of articles describing specific incidents and creating a broader concept based on that is WP:OR (and/or potentially a WP:COATRACK). What we need is substantial coverage of the phenomenon. Note that number of sources about Islamophobia in the Islamophobia article, for example. If it comprised only examples of discrimination in which the writer called it Islamophobia, it wouldn't have survived the various deletion attempts. I've no strong objection to this being userfied if someone thinks sufficient sources do exist and this is usable content (I'm skeptical, though). Not entirely sure about the best target, actually -- it's possible there are too many imprecise targets to make sense of a redirect. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 13:53, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep, but improve, perhaps cut back drastically. My first reaction was to assume this topic is Wikipedia coining a term. However, I wondered about the experience of the extended family in 2009 film Amreeka, which is about Palestinian Americans who happen to be Christians in the U.S. who face discrimination, e.g. all of a doctor or dentist's patients switching away. If not this term, what is the general term to describe the generalized dismissal of all of "them" (who look and/or sound different: darker-skinned foreigners with accents, from the Middle East and South Asia?) without making distinctions and without particularly caring about having failed to make distinctions. The Google searches give hits like this Hollywood Reporter one. I actually tend to agree with User:KhabarNegar and find their links above compelling. You can't take the view that the murder of a Sikh-American was mistaken and the perpetrator was only anti-Arab, as if there is no discriminations against Sikh-Americans (and others lumped together). Of course there is, I think. The correct term is not "Anti-Islamic", and I think not "Anti-Arab" either, it is a broader, racist thing, and "anti-Middle Eastern" as used by the Hollywood Reporter in passing seems to capture that. --doncram 02:32, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Interesting. To me, this looked like simple duplication of the several, admittedly not excellent, articles we already have on racism and anti various specific ethnic and religious groups. I do have a hard time seeking the Sikh argument. Sikhs have been targeted a number of times by violent ignoramuses assuming that turban = Muslim. I accept that they are discriminated against by those who dislike ethnic diversity, or dislike immigrants. And if a Sikh cuts his hair and buys all his clothes at JCrew, I assume that he will be discriminated against because he looks foreign. That undoubtedly happens to in the West to all people whose ancestors spent the Neolithic south of the Alps. (Of course, if a blue-eyed blond walks into an upscale shop where valuable items are displayed on open shelves in Tokyo, a plain clothes security guard will not-so-subtly shadow him until he leaves. A perfect mirror of what would happen in Baton Rouge. But I digress.) My point is that racism is real. As is anti-group sentiment against a literally infinite numbers of groups in an infinite number of situations. The one part of the world where I am aware that anti-Middle Eastern sentiment is a significant phenomenon separable from anti-Muslim sentiment and racism, is not covered in this article, and that is the scorn for and discrimination against Middle Easterner Muslims found in neighboring states, particularly Turkish and Persian lands where there is a record of anti-Arab pogroms, ethnic cleansing, and in places and at times a Jim Crow/glass ceiling situation. That, however, can, and IMP, should go into Anti-Arabism. Having looked at the sources, and thought this through (because I know and respect DonCram's opinions) I am still failing to see adequate sourcing for this article, which duplicates the topics covered in racism and many other articles. Or a demonstration that the examples/sources given fail to fit into Anti-Arabism, Islamophobia and racism.E.M.Gregory (talk) 16:39, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your courtesy, and I have to grant that my argument is irregular for AFD. I won't take it personally if the AFD outcome goes differently. Responding (sorry for perhaps being too long):
I guess ignorant, uninformed racism is the main idea I am getting at. Speculation: is "anti-Middle Eastern" a catch-all or euphemism, in the U.S., for racism other than against blacks and Asians? Speculation: Is it a combination for Anti-Iranian sentiment, Anti-Arabism, Antisemitism, Anti-Armenian, and more, which expresses a rejection for any need to be more specific? Is it a good summary term for "anti-non-Americans" / anti-Other-ness, beyond the main threads of racism, in the U.S.?
First, let me say that as someone who, er, gets around, lacking sartorial, linguistic, or behavioral clues, there is no way to reliably tell a Turk from an Argentinian, an Italian from a Libyan, or to know just by looking whether the parents of a student at the University of Pennsylvania came from Persia or Sicily, or whether someone crossing the street in Dubai comes from Islamabad, Yerevan, Tehran or Seville. Sometimes you can "see" east insular south Asian , sub Saharan or Amerindian physiognomy - but by no means always. But, even setting aside the fact that an awful lot of American resentment of immigrants is directed at Hispanics, you may be onto something. However, if "Middle Eastern" is a "catch-all... for racism other than against blacks and Asians" I suspect that this would be because it is socially acceptable to speak of religio-cultural differences, but not of racial ones, in other words, I can see where "Middle Eastern" is being used as socially acceptable code for "Muslim." Which brings us back to Islamophobia, (see, for example, 2016 Minneapolis shooting ).E.M.Gregory (talk) 20:39, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
A lot of Americans didn't or don't distinguish between Iraqis vs. Iranians (and there are numerous pre-2011 "anti-Middle Eastern sentiment" hits that seem to follow from Iran hostage crisis, and there is Anti-Iranian sentiment article), between Shiites vs. Sunnis vs. other Islamic schools and branches, between different kinds of Palestinians, and don't distinguish any specific borders for the Middle East (maybe it includes Turkey, and all of North Africa, and Afghanistan and Pakistan and India and Bangladesh). "Anti-Middle Eastern", which doesn't distinguish between Jewish Israelis vs. very different other peoples, is kind of infuriatingly in-your-face ignorant and maybe proud of it.
Dunno if folks are proud about this, but it is universal, and it works like adjusting a telescope. Someone standing in Damascus any time in the last thousand years would say, with dismissive scorn, something like: Well, what would you expect of a foreigner; of a Frank, a Greek, and finally, Well, what would can you expect of an idiot from Aleppo? This sort of thing reverses: an individual leaving home for distant parts will speak of or be described as being from: a specific village, then a specific district, then Fujian province, then south China, and, but by the time he gets all the way to San Francisco, he has become Chinese for probably the first time in his life. This is amusing, but because it is the way of the world, it is irrelevant.E.M.Gregory (talk) 20:52, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
We don't have good sources defining it, but what about the number of news hits, and the 6-10 Google Scholar hits on exactly the term "anti-Middle Eastern sentiment"? How many more hits if we look for "anti-Middle Eastern discrimination" or other variations. One hit with a variation in its title, so perhaps including a definition within (but whose full version I have not obtained), is: "An Investigation of African American College Students' Beliefs about Anti-Middle Eastern Hate Crime and Victims in the Wake of September 11th", by Craig-Henderson, Kellina; Brown-Sims, Melissa. Western Journal of Black Studies28.4 (Winter 2004): 511-517. Maybe a few of these do make a stab at a definition.
There is this passage in Wikipedia's islamophobia: "In some societies, Islamophobia has materialized due to the portrayal of Islam and Muslims as the national "Other", where exclusion and discrimination occurs on the basis of their religion and civilization which differs with national tradition and identity. Examples include Pakistani and Algerian migrants in Britain and France respectively.[64][65] This sentiment, according to Malcolm Brown and Robert Miles, significantly interacts with racism, although Islamophobia itself is not racism.[66]" It seems to me that Islamophobia is defined to be against Muslims, while the current-in-the-U.S. uninformed/ignorant generalization is broader, and needs to be discussed somewhere more prominently, as its own topic.
And the term is in fact being used. Can't we have a stub article that notes that it is being used, with some examples of usage, and with any definitions that have been put forward, though noting it is not well-defined? I would be inclined to toss almost the entire existing article, which I gather was formed as a fork of the Anti-Arabism article, to just provide a place-holder type article on the term and its apparent usage. With emphasis on what it seems to go beyond, i.e. going beyond recognized Islamophobia. I think it is an emerging term, and there should be a Wikipedia article monitoring it and providing some perspective. Its Talk page then provides a forum for continued intelligent discussion of what this is and is not. --doncram 18:26, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
I took a little time to look carefully at this part of your argument (aside: it is a pleasure to engage with you in this civilized discussion,) because I was almost persuaded at first read of this section. And yet I cannot help but see that although this term/concept has been around for quite a few years, it has gained neither wide, popular currency or significant attention from scholars and pundits. As you point out, we don't have definitions by scholars. I will not repeat here arguments I have made above, except to say that if usage and scholarly attention emerge, the article can be recreated, but, lacking such sources, I continue to think it should be deleted.E.M.Gregory (talk) 21:25, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Delete Seems to be better covered (or what isn't covered might better fit) at the more specific See Alsos. I get that this one's a bit different, in that it deals with percieved Middle Easterness (Easternism?), but it fails to define what's perceived as Middle Eastern appearance or culture. There are a bunch of each. The cases here seem to mostly involve perceived Arabs, and even Arabs have a fair mix of styles and traditions. If a standard Middle Eastern vibe that applies to all these cases can be summarized (and doesn't simply describe a stereotypical Jew, Turk, Arab or Persian), I'll change my mind.

Non-notable software with insufficient sources. A Google search did not reveal any independent in-depth coverage. GermanJoe (talk) 10:10, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Source review: Current sources are a press release, 2 listings, and 2 reviews which both fail Wikipedia's criteria for independent reliable third-party sources. Ref #4 is a typical advertorial with lots of generalized praise, PR-speak and a convenient "Buy now" link, but little professional in-depth analysis of the tool. Roughly 6 of the "review"'s 7 paragraphs do not contain any objective factual information. Ref #5 takes a more critical look, but receives sales commissions for some of their reviews (kudos for the site's open and transparent disclosure). Such a source fails to establish notability.

CrownBet is a JV of Crown Resorts. Crown Resorts may be notable but notability is WP:NOTINHERITED. This article should be deleted because it lacks notability, WP:CORPDEPTH. The references hardly satisfy WP:GNG as they are about routine matters / announcements of the company, PR, offers and a legal issue about advertising which does not make the company notable enough either.

I suspect the page may be an attempt to promote the company's new venture.

There are exceedingly few elements within the fictional Bioshock universe that are notable enough for their own articles (which is not to say that the games themselves are not notable); Sander Cohen is not one of them.

Furthermore, many of the sources have either link rotted away or he is only mentioned tangentially in some other context (i.e. one of them is an interview with a game designer where he briefly mentions Sander Cohen in a single question about which character he enjoyed designing the most, another is a discussion about choosing voice actors for the game).

This article has been deleted once before for failing to meet Wikipedia's notability policy, so I am relisting it for deletion since I feel that it still doesn't meet inclusion guidelines. GSMR (talk) 20:15, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete unreferenced article about an unremarkable building. I can't find anything relating to it which suggests notability. The article is mainly a list of the various tenants of the building over the years, the sort of thing which could be written about countless buildings around the world. Neiltonks (talk) 13:00, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Merge, leaving a redirect behind. It's promotional, but there is valid info in the article. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing building in the Lower Woodward Avenue Historic District, and we could allow an article for it, as there are many other articles in wikipedia about individual contributing buildings in historic districts. An URL for a source in the article is no longer valid, and the NRHP nomination document seems not to be available on-line (but can be obtained from the National Register by request, or from elsewhere). But I found "Lower Woodward Avenue Historic District / Final Report" which seems to be the basis for the NRHP nomination, and I would expect that it is entirely included in the NRHP nomination. It is PDF file "Lower+Woodward+Avenue+HD+Final+Report.pdf" at [4] (hope that works). The building is at 1401 Woodward.
1401 Woodward is the near, corner building)
I think we don't need a separate article about this building, because it can be covered in a paragraph or section in the historic district article. Many historic district articles have sections on each of their significant contributing resources. In the future it can possibly be restored as a separate article if more sourced info becomes available. --doncram 20:05, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Purely functional[edit]

Purely functional (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: "Purely functional" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference)

People asked for deletion in 2009 and 2013 in the discussion page, but, as far as I know, nerev did a deletion request. Here I do.

The arguments are mainly that there is no clear or standard definition of what «Purely functional» means. Purely functional seems to refer to functional programming, which is «pure». That is, using only this kind of program and no imperative programming. But it is not clear why a page is needed to state that some programs mixe two kind of programming and some programs use only one kind.

The article «Purely functional» mostly considers «Purely functional data structures», that is, data structures which can be used in functional programming. There is certainly the need for article about those structures, (and I intend to edit the dequeue article to add more informations about the functional implementation of efficient dequeue). But I think that having an article about «Purely functional data structures» is a bad idea. Note that even Okasaki, who wrote the reference book about Purely functional data structure did not give a precise definition of what it means by «purely functional data structures», apart that they are data structure which can be coded in functional languages.

Note: This debate has been included in the list of Computing-related deletion discussions. Arthur MILCHIOR (talk) 16:17, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment There are indeed a few problems with this page:
  • The first is the name, which should either be "Pure functional programming" (or possibly "Purely functional programming") or "Purely functional data structure" to know if we are talking about the programming paradigm or a class of data structures. (The current article seems to be mostly about the former at the moment.) Of course, purely functional data structures are one aspect of purely functional programming.
  • Both would seem like valid topics for an article to me. Pure function programming does have a lot of different idioms compared to impure functional programming. Purely functional data structures do use some interesting tricks beyond those of traditional persistent data structures (e.g. using thunks/closures to both amortize and share the cost of operations, without having to explicitly deal with mutable state).
  • That said, "pure" vs. "impure" functional programming may be better discussed in a section of the Functional programming article itself. Purely functional data structures could possibly be discussed in section of the Persistent data structure article. (Although, in both cases they're fairly long articles already.)
So I think some heavy refactoring, renaming and merging is in order here, but an outright deletion is not. At the very least a redirect or disambiguation page should be left in place under this title. —Ruud 16:43, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Gods Of War Motorcycle Club[edit]

Gods Of War Motorcycle Club (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: "Gods Of War Motorcycle Club" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference)

Fails the general notability guideline and the guidelines at WP:CLUB. The Gods Of War Motorcycle Club has not been the subject of any significant coverage in any independent, reliable sources. Besides no hits at all at Google news and books, there is nothing at Questia, HighBeam or General OneFile.

To help the article creator User:JamesT5723 understand better, and to answer issues he raised on the talk page and in edit summaries, it should be explained that having a registered trademark is in no way evidence of notability by Wikipedia's standards. Anyone can pay a fee and register a trademark.

Claims that this is one of the fastest growing clubs, is unique in its policies, or unique in other ways, only serve to make one ask why hasn't a single book, newspaper, magazine or reputable website ever written anything about this club?

It is true that there are other articles of questionable notability. Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association would probably not survive a deletion nomination, since all the coverage is WP:ROUTINE toy runs and charity events. The article Blue Angels Motorcycle Club isn't much, but the club has been the subject of ongoing press coverage for many years, mostly due to criminal activity (which is nothing to envy if you ask me). But what matters here is that other stuff exists is no help in keeping Gods Of War Motorcycle Club from being deleted. Regardless of what is wrong with some other article, the question here is whether this article meets the guidelines for notability. For that we need citations showing significant coverage, which are not published by the club, or available for purchase like a license, a trademark, or a vanity press book. Dennis Bratland (talk) 08:39, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

You mention that we are not in the papers, books etc.. well this is beciuase we are not breaking the law, & as far as I am aware.. there are people & organisations who are listed that obey the law. I had mentioned the Blue Angels, & you said "but the club has been the subject of ongoing press coverage for many years", as I pointed out.. none of the reference links etc attributed to them actually indicate this. Same can be said for Shanon Ponton, who is a trainer on the biggest loser, & all his links bar 1 fail, other than having been on personal trainer on a TV program.. what worth of notability is it. & I am not advocating that either of htese be removed, becuase even though our listing has more actual VALID links listed on our page, their is obviously thousnads of people that would find their links notworthy, where 100's might not. As for the trade mark, you actually have to go through a long process, so it's not just pay & you're done. You said "Claims that this is one of the fastest growing clubs, is unique in its policies, or unique in other ways, only serve to make one ask why hasn't a single book, newspaper, magazine or reputable website ever written anything about this club".. this is not a claim but a fact & the fact we now have locations across 3 countries in 18 monthes proves that, if you do some research you will not find another Military MC that is not 1%, not controlled by one, that admits all service personnel only, from any country, male or female.. & caters for disabled veterans that are unable to ride any more.. That makes us Unique. Just becuase we don't go blowing our trumpet doesn't mean that we are not known, or we wouldn't be getting the amount of applications each day we get. We ARE listed on a reputable web site & the link is on as a reference, it is an extremely highly regarded website in the Motorcycle community, & the site is the main registry for clubs & is respected the world round, & we have been listed 3 times on it!! Claims of notability are subject to personal view, & as I agree that criminal activity isn't something to envy, you seem to advocate that unless a club does something wrong then then are not notworthy, the club has a very good reputation, & is also able to remain netural in around outlaw club, which in its self is it notable.. what one person may not class & notworthy may be to hundred of thousands of others. we get dozens of applcations each day from around the world & have approved yet another location only yesterday in Rowley Regis UK, so it we were certainly notworthy for enough people to wish to establish there. User:JamesT5723 23:47, 28 July 2016

Hi James, please read our guidelines for notability, particularly the part about clubs that Dennis linked. Clubs (including MCs) don't need to commit crimes to be covered by the news. If you can find coverage of your club's participation in a major event, that could help to establish some for of notability. Has the MC led any charity events or protests? Those would be a good place to start. For now, though, I'm voting Delete. Jergling (talk) 14:25, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Keep No valid reason to delete has been given. Lists are not navboxes, and categories are not lists. We have various ways of organizing and categorizing information, and there is no reason to delete a legitimate list just because the material is also organized into a category or a navbox. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 06:49, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep. (EC) It is a reasonable list. It can/should be developed to include some information about them, perhaps in a tabular format. Sorry to be simply contrary, but for example, one reasonable version would be to have a column of the names, and to have a second column of external links to the state websites, or for the second column to be a list of factoids of some type taken from the state websites (like year the state party was founded) with references to the state websites (so pretty much restoring the state websites, either way).

  • Comment. The editing stripping down the list and then this AFD is poor timing, right when the various state parties might be taking different positions in the Democratic national convention, and right when it might be relevant for readers to be able to look up stuff and see patterns across states, from info that could be arrayed here. (I wonder offhand what's different about Utah in the corresponding Republican list, is it just that the state has a lot of Mormons, or is the state party organized differently than other ones? A state list can array relevant info showing it is the same as most others or very different in some way.) Is the List of state parties of the Republican Party (United States) magically okay because it put the website links into references that list out below? If one is gutted the other should be gutted... or better not to gut either. I think the previous version of this article should be restored right now, with just the addition of the AFD tag for the moment, until this gets cleared up. It is not okay to selectively gut all of one party's stuff, right in the middle of the news going on. --doncram 07:07, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Article created by the content translation tool. A very talented man, no doubt, but notable? Black Kite (talk) 00:39, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment - Not much out there covering the subject but I suggest we hold off on deleting since there is an "under construction" tag and the page might be improved with sources. Meatsgains (talk) 01:22, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep The article says he has had solo exhibitions at major museums and therefore meets WP:ARTIST, and the article currently contains a reference. I will support deleting if it can be shown that the claims are false. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 06:56, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

This article was a mess of WP:FANCRUFT. I trimmed it down to actual cited information related to the article subject, but the problem that remains is that every single reference is a blog that fails WP:RS. It's entirely possible that it's a question of source language, but whoever started the article didn't even provide her name in Urdu. Other than that, one TV show doesn't meet WP:NACTOR. So no RS, and doesn't seem to meet any notability guidelines. MSJapan (talk) 00:11, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
