215 (number)[edit]

I've redirected it to 210 (number). Self-references should be avoided, and this one doesn't appear to have any importance outside of Wikipedia. snigbrook (talk) 18:40, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

  • Are you sure that this self-reference is unacceptable modulo WP:WAWI? From my interpretation of that standard, the page is not only relevant but adequately sourced. For instance, if an external source said "The smallest dull number is 215 because it doesn't have a Wikipedia page." that fact would absolutely qualify as grounds for inclusion into Wikipedia, no? I'll admit that I tried to be humorous at the end, but I put in no shortage of links to serious articles on self-referential proofs. If it is re-added, I'll use the external link convention recommended by WP:WAWI. Tom3118 (talk) 18:59, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Unless there are reliable sources to demonstrate the notability of this, it is probably to trivial to be mentioned, also a separate article wouldn't be necessary. snigbrook (talk) 20:03, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
