A tag has been placed on Solutions Twin Cities, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

Unremarkable people, groups, companies and web content. Cited event has only happened one time and has only 200 people attending

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet very basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. -- Sparkzilla talk! 15:49, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the message. I'm afraid that there are standards for inclusion on Wikipedia, one of those is that the subject should be notable. A gathering of 200 people for a presentation does not meet the criteria. While I see your point of view about similar articles, because articles are created much faster than can proofread, not everything on the site has been checked that it meets the minimum standards. Because of this we have to deal with what's in front of us at the time, having said that we have guidelines against such arguments as existence of one article guarantees notability of another and "If you delete this, x should go also". The guidelines have built up over the years from the consensus reached by the online community. The article Pecha Kucha is mostly about the format and not about an event so it's slightly different, Lightning talk is similar but again it's about a (slightly different) format, not an event. If your event were to become nationally significant and be a regular fixture there would be a stronger argument for keeping it. Mallanox 17:25, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
I would also say that Pecha Kucha is notable because 1. They invented the format 2. There have been hundreds of events all through the world and 3. The presenters are often notable people in their field and 4. the events are well attended. -- Sparkzilla talk! 01:01, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
I've created a copy of the last version of the page here for you. Mallanox 13:14, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
