Speedy deletion of Heartland Parkway[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Heartland Parkway requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Bvlax2005 (talk) 07:13, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

I wouldn't say that the article is too short, and is actually fairly organized and informational. My only concern is about notability. Streets, roads, and highways are by default considered notable, however I am not sure if a proposed highway is or not. I did tag the article because it does fall into a bit of "gray area" and the decision is up the the administrator to review the case. If you are able to provide reliable, third-party references it would most definitely ascertain notability. Bvlax2005 (talk) 09:27, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
P.S. I honestly think you put together a decent article for not having used Wikipedia before! Of course the only problem is notability :/
Here's another welcome to wikipedia! I agree with Bvlax that it is a very good article for a new user. The speedy wasn't appropriate so I removed it. The article would clearly pass WP:AfD, the most rigorous deletion process. There were some reliable sources like newspaper articles in it already; indicating they were newspapers etc rather than just weblinks would have made "notability" clearer - the basic criterion of notability & appropriateness for wikipedia is that there has been real coverage of a topic in "reliable sources." See my comments on the talk page. Anyways, keep up the good work!John Z (talk) 11:29, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
