Thank you Thparkth. Your third-party opinion was appreciated. I especially appreciate your pointing out I might have a personal interest in promoting a self-created work. I'll take down the link now and will also abide by your advice on what other external links can also be trimmed. --SuperAnth: so dubbed by others, perpetuated by action (talk) 17:21, 1 October 2010 (UTC)


Could you please tell me what this person has done? Arzel (talk) 19:13, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not sure what you're referring to. Thparkth (talk) 19:18, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Nicky Diaz. You removed the proposed deletion tag because you said she was notable. I don't see how you get past WP:BLP1E. Arzel (talk) 19:22, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
I see. I didn't say she was notable. I said the article contained a credible claim of significance, which it does. Lack of notability isn't a reason for speedy deletion - you should nominate the article at WP:AFD if you think it should be deleted on notability grounds. For what it's worth, I think she probably is notable, and I say that as a Scotsman living in Canada with no political interest in this whatsoever ;) Thparkth (talk) 19:24, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Articles I request deletion

Does an administrator look at the deletion discussion page and make's a judgement as to how many want the article deleted. Or am I supposed to do something additional other than requesting it for deletion? Not one person has said "Keep" in any of the 7 articles that I proposed for deletion. Atleast 2/3 at minimum, if not more, want delete per each. --Nick Ornstein (talk) 02:20, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi Nick,
An AFD usually runs for seven days (unless there is some special reason to close it early) and then an administrator will judge what the consensus was with regard to the article. If the consensus is to delete, then it will be deleted. It's not a simple majority vote though - for example, if all the people saying "delete" were using an argument that was against wikipedia policy, their views wouldn't be given much weight.
