I have found information regarding Dmitrii Vasilyevich Yermakov, on it says that he died on December 29th, 1993. Now, please don't delete my article. Mad7744 (talk) 22:41, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
@Mad7744: First, it's not your article. Second, as the article creator you shouldn't remove deletion proposals. Finally, the sources you've cited are insufficient. The Russian-language article cites some books, so you should use those. Chris Troutman (talk) 22:57, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Yeah it is my article because i created it as a draft, added references, and turned it into a real article. Therefore, it is my article. Mad7744 (talk) 23:13, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

poorly written?[edit]

  • Please explain what you mean? It is a stub article of course and needs work, but human possession in science fiction is an important topic for scholars of contemporary mythology and literature. Human possession is well-documented in cultures around the world and throughout history, and plays a significant role in many mythologies and literatures. Science fiction allows a scientific approach to the mythology and ideologies of human possession. This article should not be deleted; there are plenty of stub articles on Wikipedia in much worse status than this one. Nicole Sharp (talk) 03:31, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
  • FYI, I moved your deletion proposal to "talk:human possession in science fiction." Nicole Sharp (talk) 03:43, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
    • @Nicole Sharp: You claim that the subject is "an important topic for scholars of contemporary mythology and literature". Not only is there no evidence of that, that assertion doesn't necessarily pass the bar of notability. If you intend to contribute to Wikipedia please learn not to vomit words onto a page. Work in a sandbox first if you're developing an idea.
    • To have an article about any subject we have to present sources about that subject. Yes, I've seen Invasion of the Body Snatchers and many episodes of Outer Limits and Twilight Zone where this theme occurs. Regardless, except for a single source added later there's no discussion of human possession of science fiction as a trope. The poorly-written content I PRODed is original research as Animalparty excellently points out. I'm not a deletionist so I won't further pursue deletion but the article is still sub-standard in my opinion. By the way WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS is a poor argument to use. Again, Wikipedia has a culture and you'd find this easier if you inculcate what we as a community have already determined. Chris Troutman (talk) 12:33, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
