Deletion of List of MSX compatible computers[edit]

Hi. I would like to inquire about your deletion closure of this article and point out a couple of things. There have been two opinions aside from the proposer's, one "keep" and one "delete". The "delete" was given just one day after the article had been re-listed for discussion, and afterwards, I had started searching for and including various references to substantiate the article's claims that some products belonged in it (though I can no longer show this as the article's history is gone).

Was it not a reasonable assumption for me to think that the deletion discussion would continue for another week after being relisted? Didn't the fact I was adding source somewhat counter the "delete" opinion that was based on sources not being provided? Aside from references, the proposer's opinion, in turn, was basically just that the MSX standard is "antiquated", but then we should have no MSX article in the first place, so I don't see how that's a policy-based rationale for deletion.

I thought a stand-alone list didn't, in turn, strictly require every item to be referenced to be included, and in any case, a bonafide effort to start referencing was being made, even aside from the entries that had their own article and, as such, were intrinsically justified for inclusion (as long as their own article showed the item was an MSX-standard computer).

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lin Liangming[edit]

Four keeps and not a single delete after I added references to the article is no consensus? It might have been no consensus before that, but there seems to be a very clear consensus since I added those articles, and documented their contents. Nfitz (talk) 02:05, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Were the sources added before Sir Sputnik and Spiderone reviewed the article? MBisanz talk 02:47, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
I added the sources on November 15 to the article - around 5 pm Eastern. User:Sir Sputnik reviewed on November 12 and User:Spiderone reviewed on November 13. Now to be honest I did mention the same sources in the deletion discussion on November 8, however User:Fenix down and others requested further information about what Chinese-languages sources said on November 9 - and I did so on November 15, with translations of the article names provided in the article on that day. None of them weighed in again during the debate. I don't know if that's because they just weren't aware, or if they simply didn't have anything further to add. Nfitz (talk) 00:42, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
I've undone my close and re-listed it to give further time to evaluate the new sources. MBisanz talk 03:24, 25 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.
