Notability of Ron Gorchov[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Ron Gorchov requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, 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. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia 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. Alexf42 21:58, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Ron Gorchov[edit]

The page was saved by an editor who cleaned it up and proved notability. To answer your question (full answer at my Talk page), copied here:

When an article is wrongly named, you can use the move command to rename it, instead of creating a new one. I had already deleted the page as duplicate. Admins can delete pages, editors cannot. What you can do if you want your page deleted is to blank the page and put a {{db-author}} tag on it. This will signal admins to delete it. On your second question, you can create a subpage on your user space by adding a slash and the new page name to your userpage's URL (follow the link for instructions). There you can work on it, make it look nice, establish notability and then copy to a new article when ready. When you want that page deleted, just place a {{db-u1}} on it to signal admins for deletion. Simple. -- Alexf42 22:57, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
