Redlinks[edit]

Please do not delete appropriate redlinks. Per WP:REDLINK. Thank you. --2604:2000:E016:A700:B58B:CD4E:9A7D:729E (talk) 05:27, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi, IP address. I don't think you are properly creating redlinks. You should read WP:REDLINK more closely. It clearly states, "It is useful in editing article text to create a red link to indicate that a page will be created soon or that an article should be created for the topic because the subject is notable and verifiable" and goes on to say, "Do not create red links to articles that are not likely to be created and retained in Wikipedia." If you don't think the article in question is notable, why would you think there should be an article on a book he wrote, or related apps or online services he founded? Doesn't make sense to me.--Bernie44 (talk) 17:32, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
I do believe I read it correctly. "In general, a red link should be allowed to remain in an article if it links to a term that could plausibly sustain an article, but for which there is no existing candidate article, or article section, under any name." If those redlinks are not likely to be created, they probably should not even be in the article. And of course, it is possible for a person to be non-notable, but for a book they wrote to be notable, or an app or online service they founded to be notable - one does not follow necessarily from the other. In any event, as the article creator, and as an editor who creates articles for pay, perhaps you are not in the best place to remove such links. 2604:2000:E016:A700:F59A:6E3:7FB6:DAF (talk) 23:10, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
