AFD on Denver Film Critics Society[edit]

This was a very poor decision on your part, as even a passing glance at the "sources" would have shown. Please don't do that again. --Calton | Talk 08:47, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Schmidt provided a link to numerous news articles that covered the decisions of the film society. While I may or may not believe that these are enough to justify a keep, Schmidt had demonstrated that there were in fact untapped sources and had also put forth an argument for keeping and renaming that had not been considered. In these types of situations, I think it is perfectly acceptable to relist to accurately ascertain community consensus, and that this is preferable to deleting an article that could have been salvageable. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 20:51, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
The news links were to local newspapers -- WHICH WAS MENTIONED IN THE NOMINATION -- and the "nearly 2,000" Google Book results were complete and utter garbage. So the first was already considered and the second was inapplicable. Try using some judgement next time. --Calton | Talk 11:11, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
The nomination stated "Virtually no outside articles are cited to assert notability"; it mentions nothing about local news coverage. Furthermore, the claim that all of the linked sources are local is simply not true- I checked through a number of the linked news articles before relisting, and saw that several of them were from outside of the city and even outside the state. I'm not going to respond to any further messages, so I'd recommend pinging an admin if you still object to my relist (there should be consensus to delete now anyways).

Edited comment[edit]

I noticed you edited on 8 December your already posted comment dated 21:45, 7 December 2017 (UTC), in the page Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Journal (episode). WP:REDACTED, which is a guideline, states, "even if no one's replied but it's been more than a short while, if you wish to change or delete your comment, it is commonly best practice to indicate your changes." Thinker78 (talk) 03:40, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

My edit was a minor clarification that did not change my argument in any way; the comment I made it to was not replied to. The AfD is already rather complicated (involving multiple points and interpretation of policies and divisions between the editors not in favor of keeping the article), and I don't want to clog the discussion up further by noting what amounts to a minor cosmetic change.
