Your userpage[edit]

Just a quick poke on your example of the promotion of video games being a "stupid decision". Featured Articles are selected based on quality, not on type or making sure that every subject has an equal number of articles regardless of content. Why should video game articles, if they fulfil the standards listed at Wikipedia:Featured article criteria, not be promoted? Ironholds (talk) 13:10, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

I have heard this response many times before, and my argument is that video game articles make up an unreasonably high majority of featured articles, which leads me to indicate a clear bias towards them. There is something genuinely wrong with the featured article nomination process, as it stands today, and I would like to see it is fixed. Thanks for the comment though!

Why does it indicate a flaw with the process? Is it not more likely that users are simply more interested in working on articles about computer games than others? As a comparison - the Video Games wikiproject has over eight hundred members. The Law one has less than one hundred, of which maybe ten are actively working on law articles a lot of the time. Is it no surprise that more Video Games get up to the required standard than law articles? And I say that as someone who got a law article to FA status. If you've seen the Featured Article standard you'll note that it's a neutral set of criteria. You'll also see a lot of military history articles at FA - again, Milhist is a large project.

Speedy deletion nomination of Shane Acker[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Shane Acker 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 important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles 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 page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 01:06, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
