Brain Police page deletion
Hey. I'm in the band.
When you say you've googled the band to verify its notability you have to consider the fact that almost all articles about the band are in Icelandic, plus most of the sites that had articles about us are dead. We're talking about the years 2000 -> 2005.
All the radio stations that we had number one hits on are dead, and their websites too.
What would you consider to be trustworthy sources? Allmusic?
I think Wayback Machine would be better for you to verify this than google.
Is the page gone or can you retrieve it if you see proof of notability?
Also I've already gone through this, a while back - the page was deemed not notable, taken off Wikipedia if I remember correctly. I provided some proof and the page came back.
From my talk page.
"As you previously noticed, someone marked the Gunnlaugur Lárusson article for deletion. But we are able to keep this article because it passes our Notability and Music Guidelines. Brain Police, has had a Top 100 hit on any national music chart, in a large or medium-sized country.
However, please read Wikipedia:Autobiography. Many users here on Wikipedia feel strongly that you should not create or edit an article about yourself, your band, or your songs. Those that do write articles about themselves usually get into disputes about the significance, factual accuracy, and neutrality of material on subjects in which they are personally involved in.
