Vitello's restaurant[edit]

This seems like a notable subject. In addition to being referred to as "famous" and as an "institution" in various sources, it also seems to be a significant concert venue and was the site of a famous last meal in a famous murder. Cheers. OrganicEarth (talk) 00:31, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Hello @OrganicEarth:. An article about the same restaurant was deleted in 2007; see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Vitello's restaurant. You are welcome to start a draft at Draft:Vitello's restaurant, or in your userspace at User:OrganicEarth/Vitello's restaurant, but it may be deleted again for the same reasons. Rather than referring to sources calling it 'famous', you need to establish its notability (see WP:Notability) through the impact its general impact on society. You need secondary sources in order to do so; basically sources independent of the subject talking about it, such as an unconnected newspaper reporter reporting it. Note that a source doesn't have to be solely about the restaurant, but can't just mention it. It may be better for you or NorthAmerica1000 to work on an existing article, if there's anything that needs adding; e.g. at Bonnie Lee Bakley#Death; that section could do with some footnotes. Thanks and happy editing, Rubbish computer 19:06, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
@OrganicEarth: An additional notability guideline, for companies, is located at WP:CORPDEPTH. @Rubbish computer: Thanks for providing a reply here. I've been busy for the last few days and not on wiki during that time. North America1000 01:37, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

DYK for Nkandla compound firepool controversy[edit]

deletion of article[edit]

why have you deleted "suvrat raj(student)" article?? You think, that was my own autobiography but it is absolutely wrong. Actually,i have created this account by his name. He is a very famous student of siwan district. Everyone knows him, so, please restore that document.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SUVRAT RAJ (talkcontribs) 16:55, 26 July 2015‎ (UTC)

  • Suvrat Raj(student) was deleted because the article did not state how its subject is important or significant. As such, it qualified for speedy deletion as per WP:A7. I notice that another, new version of the article, Suvrat raj(student), was also deleted by another administrator for the same reason. Wikipedia articles need to have an assertion of significance, and also require significant coverage in reliable sources to establish notability (see WP:BASIC for articles about people). You state that this is not an autobiography, but your user name being the same as the subject's also suggests a potential problem with having a Wikipedia:Conflict of interest regarding the subject.

(Untitled)[edit]

I was trying to create a page for my company and you deleted it as per the deletion log. I would like to know why?!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.129.241.87 (talkcontribs) 07:33, 27 July 2015‎ (UTC)

  • Hello: I will need more information to process your request, specifically, the title of the article that was deleted. North America1000 08:24, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
Another one for your TAFI co-ordination, constant preaching of proper deletion technique to the masses at AfD, saving some of my botched nominations (e.g. Goat meat pepper soup), and your through understanding of notability and deletion. Esquivalience t 02:32, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @Esquivalience: Thank you for the star, and for all of the work you do to improve Wikipedia. North America1000 09:36, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Apparent contradiction in AFD support pages[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Common outcomes#Lists seems to undermine WP:NOTDUPE

Comments? The Transhumanist 04:24, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

  • It also confirms that lists are getting deleted regardless of WP:CLN. What can be done? The Transhumanist 04:43, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

WP:Articles for deletion/2015 Shuvat Rachel shooting[edit]

Hi Northamerica1000.

I'm writing to ask how you came to the conclusion that there was no consensus to delete at WP:Articles for deletion/2015 Shuvat Rachel shooting. Most of the keep !votes were from SPAs whose only other edit was at WP:Articles for deletion/Shooting of Danny Gonen. Also, most of the delete !votes were based on WP:NOT and the keep !votes were based on WP:GNG, and as another editor pointed out, WP:NOT is a policy and WP:N is a guideline.

Thank you in advance for your explanation. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 05:02, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

  • @Malik Shabazz: For starters, discussion closures are not based upon a vote count. You state that "most of the keep !votes were from SPAs", but this is not true. Three out of the six straight keep !votes were from established users. Those from SPAs were mostly guideline-based. There is an overall disagreement in the discussion about whether or not the topic is aligned with having enduring notability, as per WP:NOTNEWS. Those for deletion generally stated that this is the case, whereas several for article retention countered this (e.g. "No lasting impact; Wikipedia is not a daily newspaper" versus "The case received much int'l coverage and over a month later, there are still articles that mention it". I'm well aware of the differences between WP:NOT and WP:GNG, but in the discussion, there was disagreement about whether or not WP:NOTNEWS is applicable toward this specific article. As such, no consensus was formed in the discussion. North America1000 05:24, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. — MShabazz Talk/Stalk 05:42, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Could your give me (userfy) Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Mandalasana?Algircal (talk) 09:20, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

  • @Algircal: I'm sorry, but per consensus at the AfD discussion, the content is not suitable for Wikipedia, and Wikipedia is not a web host for the storage of such content. As such, I have to deny this request. North America1000 09:32, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
