Allen Hall[edit]

Thanks for joining Wikipedia! However the article you created, Allen Hall, isn't notable enough for Wikipedia, so I've placed it up for proposed deletion. Feel free to get back to me if you have any queries. Petros471 16:44, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. If I'd seen the other articles I'd have probably put them up for deletion as well! Personally I think a section under the main University of Manchester article is enough, but I guess merging Allen Hall Oak House and Owens Park into Fallowfield Campus might be ok. Notability guidelines on Wikipedia (expect for a few cases like biographies and music) are fairly imprecise (such as Wikipedia:Notability), but even though Wikipedia does not have the constraints of a paper encyclopedia, it is still an encyclopedia- and therefore there has to be limits in how local an interest articles can be.

Just seen this debate. I have being trying to save some Hall of Residence articles from deletion but you guys do not help. To keep it, you have to demonstrate notability. What is its history? Is it the oldest Hall at Manchester? Is its architecture notable? Has it had notable former members? Do not talk about non-notable present members. You could remove the delete box and let it go to AfD, but you would have to improve it quickly. In this case I suggest you merge the material from all Fallowfield Halls into Fallowfield Campus at least for now or merge all Halls of U of M and Fallowfield Campus into University of Manchester Halls of Residence. See University of Exeter Halls of Residence for what happened after a deletion discussion on Holland Hall. Make all the Hall articles redirects - again see Holland Hall for how to do it. --Bduke 01:29, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
