A rooster is the brand image of Kincho or ja:大日本除虫菊, but the English Wikipedia does not even have an article on the company (otherwise, I would just merge it into the company article). The brand image is rather well-known, but I can find no articles even in Japanese on the "Papa" character, let alone ones that that include this in-universe information. One could perhaps re-do this just focusing on the Kincho rooster, but I still don't see enough RS for that, or the need given we don't have an article on the company.

Organizations in A Song of Ice and Fire[edit]

Organizations in A Song of Ice and Fire (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: "Organizations in A Song of Ice and Fire" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

There are two problems with this:

  • Notability: The sources only show that individual organizations from this fictional world have been discussed or (much more often) merely mentioned in third-party sources. But none of these sources discusses the topic of this series's organizations as a whole, which makes that topic fail WP:N. The sources are mostly media sources that mention the one or the other group in passing in the context of some plot point. A case could perhaps be made for the notability of some specific organizations, if they have substantial real-world-related coverage, but that's not apparent from the article.
  • In-universe style: Per WP:NOTPLOT, a policy, an article must not consist of "summary-only descriptions of works". But that's the case here. The article is almost exclusively a portrayal of these groups as they exist in-universe, i.e., a summary of the respective parts of these fictional works. We don't see any real-world connection, e.g., sourced commentary about how the Iron Bank of Braavos reflects real-world capitalism. Also, the draft is written in an in-universe style, treating the fiction as though it were real, in violation of the style guideline MOS:FICT ("Wikipedia articles should describe fiction and fictional elements from the perspective of the real world, not from the perspective of the fiction itself."). As such, this content is suited for a fan wiki, but not for Wikipedia. - While AfD is not cleanup, this is a long worked-on draft that was recently restored to mainspace. If even focused editing can't fix this fundamental problem, it is likely unfixable because there are not enough secondary sources that allow out-of-universe coverage of this topic, and we can therefore delete the article.  Sandstein  12:17, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep Those two sources are a start for what is a notable work of fiction with real world basis. More sources to come article was just restored a day ago give the article some time to be expanded. Given the complexity of the subject this could take awhile. Valoem talk contrib 17:35, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
    Which two sources? You just had this restored from your userspace via DRV, so you had all the time you wanted to improve it - but it's still just a heap of fancruft, not an encyclopedia article. (And I'm saying this as the person who probably wrote most of the main Game of Thrones article). I'm not seeing any indication it can ever overcome the problems mentioned above.  Sandstein  18:25, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete or possibly redirect to World of A Song of Ice and Fire. I'm sympathetic to the work Valoem has put in here, but I just don't see any likelihood of this approach producing a quality article. A few of the "organizations" included in the current version may eventually generate enough out-of-universe coverage to warrant brief encyclopedic treatment, but those can be discussed in World of A Song of Ice and Fire (which is itself badly in need of cleanup, but probably deserves to exist; the recent debates around sexual violence and realism in the setting might be enough by themselves to anchor that article). The question isn't just whether one can find discussion of topics from the books and the TV show in independent websites; a popular franchise is inevitably going to generate a high quantity of ephemeral and rather trivial coverage. But "the five best new characters from Game of Thrones" isn't meaningful content for a character article, and stuff like a two-minute interview with George R. R. Martin about the inspiration for the Faith Militant doesn't justify this one. Brendan Moody (talk) 19:17, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
A follow-up comment: the material Valoem has just added to the article underlines the issues here. Neither new source in the lead supports the sentence they're both citing, "Martin based many organizations on the nature of medieval cruelty and behavior." The Radio Times article contains the phrase "extreme medieval cruelty," and the LiveScience piece contains the sentence "George R. R. Martin, the author of "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series on which the HBO series is based, has said he draws inspiration from certain historical events, including the English Wars of the Roses." But there's nothing there directly about organizations in the series, which is the topic of the article. Nor does either Den of Geek article specifically claim that Martin based the Faith Militant on the Catholic Church. The first makes a glancing allusion to the influence of history on the series' portrait of religion, while the second speculates about "likely" influences on Martin. The "History Behind Game of Thrones" article is likewise speculative, and since none of the website's contributors appear to be notable scholars or commentators it's a dubious source to boot. The only one of the five that comes close enough to addressing any aspect of the article's topic to be useful is the second Den of Geek article, and that's limited to information on a single organization that is already adequately sourced. The way to demonstrate the notability of this topic is not to locate every article with even a passing mention of Martin's debts to real medieval history; there may well be many more than 150 of them, but that's not relevant. Adding a single sentence each about possible inspirations at the end of several paragraphs of plot summary is not enough. What we need is significant secondary coverage of enough different organizations to allow a meaningful out-of-universe article. I don't think that coverage exists, which is why I maintain that deletion is the best approach. Brendan Moody (talk) 23:31, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Inclined to keep per our approach to lists of fictional content and in particular (quoted from there): For fictional works, these spinout articles are typically lists of characters or other elements that usually rely on the coverage of the parent topic, and may lack demonstration of real-world coverage through sources dedicated specifically to those elements (see Wikipedia:Lists). I think that takes care of the WP:N concern. Regards the overall WP:FICT concern, yes, text written from an in-universe perspective needs to be corrected (I haven't reviewed the article in this case), but 1) that's not a rationale alone to delete an article (and in fact "Summary style approach" covers this in its second paragraph also); and 2) the nom seems not to understand that per the quoted text out-of-universe writing does not necessarily dictate the presence of reliable sourced coverage. --Izno (talk) 20:36, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
    From that guideline: "Very rarely should such spinout articles be about a singular topic (e.g., character, plot item); either that topic has demonstrated its own notability, or should be merged into the main article or existing spinout articles. The spinout article should concisely provide details of the topic or topics covered in the work – just because the spinout article is given more space to grow does not mean that excessive plot summaries (...) are appropriate." That's a good explanation why this article is inappropriate.  Sandstein  20:43, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
    The text you are presumably concerned with is should such spinout articles be about a singular topic (e.g., character, plot item); either that topic has demonstrated its own notability, or should be merged into the main article or existing spinout articles--this is I presume a badly written statement that any spinout article should not be concerned with singular entities i.e. a singular character, or a singular item, etc. Otherwise this would point to the guideline being internally inconsistent, which I find unlikely given how WP:FICT was hammered out. The other text quoted, spinout article should concisely provide details of the topic or topics covered in the work – just because the spinout article is given more space to grow does not mean that excessive plot summaries (...) are appropriate. is part of the normal cleanup process and does not suffice to delete an article. As I commented, I agree that in-universe is a problem but it is not so insurmountable that the article must be deleted. --Izno (talk) 20:47, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
    I think it is, because if one were to delete all the in-universe stuff from this article, how much would be left? A few sentences? Not enough for an article, at any rate. The entire article is an an excessive plot summary; aggregating this amount of random details from this series goes far, far beyond what we need and already have, in the articles about the books and the characters, to appropriately summarize the plot of the books. We only provide value if we focus on covering this (and any) fiction as a cultural artefact that impacts our real world, and this article does not help one iota to do that.  Sandstein  20:56, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
    This is untrue--content which is in-universe can be written from an out-of-universe perspective. Do you understand this? As for your assertion that it is only a worthy article if it places the fictional content in the context of the real world, this is plainly false per the cited guideline. We do find these sorts of articles to be somewhat valuable even without context. (This is not to say that we should not add such context as applicable, naturally.) --Izno (talk) 22:56, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - as much as I like GOT, I don't see the notability here for the organizations themselves. This is not the GOT Wiki. МандичкаYO 😜 15:51, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete unless reworked out of its in-universe style. I had some hope duuring the DRV that it might be possible to work this into a decent article due to the high cultural notability of the series itself but as it is it's a pile of in-universe trivia. One possibility might be a very selective merge into the characters list. Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 20:45, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
There are so many sources regarding this topic it is hard to find sources based solely on real world implications. I'll see what I can find. It is odd with the massive influence on popular culture we cannot find a place for this here. I've found over 150 secondary sources which means the in universe subject has vastly more coverage than other counter parts. These sources suggest this subject should have a place here on wikipedia and is not limited to ASOFAI wiki. Once again Wikipedia has no timeline so if sources are found and there is some coverage in real world basis we should favor retention. Valoem talk contrib 21:50, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment I've added even more sources which can be expanded on I also found this source [1] showing the influence of women in GofT compare to medieval history. Perhaps DGG could give some advice as to how to improve this article, as I am currently working on this alone and given how popular this subject I cannot help but notice the possibility deleting this could be a mistake. Valoem talk contrib 22:26, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep The basic reason for keeping articles like these is that on balance they are a better place to cover the individual organizations than to do it in separate articles on the one hand, and to overload the main article with the details. The general first time reader/viewer will want an overview; most people, who are now no longer totally unacquainted with it will want a reasonable amount of details. This is not fan coverage--true fan coverage includes every possible detail, potentially to an extent greater than the original works. As the amount of literature of the series develops in future years, there may be need for such individual organization articles, but I don't think we're there yet.

Removed content which was a copy-vio (see talk). Subject fails WP:NBAND and WP:GNG Flat Out (talk) 05:36, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete According to the criteria for musicians and ensembles subjects must have been "the subject of multiple, non-trivial, published works that are reliable, not self-published, and are independent of the musician or ensemble itself". In this case, several of the references and external links are self-published or otherwise not notable (Vevo and MTV music allow any artists to host content on the respective sites). The article claims the artist "won the metal charts" of certain cities by Reverbnation; however, a citation is needed. The article does not meet any of the other criteria for musicians and ensembles, nor the general notability guideline, so I think it is a safe delete at this time.

The list doesn't specify a certain year, and looking at the article history, the 2013 rankings have been removed. This list (at least in the way it is currently handled) would require maintenance every year, and is a good example of recentism. I suppose a solution would be to organize it differently, in the same manner as the Rankings of universities in Brazil, or year specific such as THE–QS World University Rankings, 2005. A huge unwieldy table is currently the majority of the article, so at the very least the article should be blown up. Perhaps some of the info that was previously removed should be restored to show a historical perspective, and give the article merits to be kept. But as it currently exists it should go, hence my nomination. I'll withdraw if my suggested changes or another appropriate fix is made. Godsy(TALKCONT) 03:48, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment. There was a recent list AfD that had the same problems with sourcing and dating. The decision in that case was "keep" but after serious culling. Maybe that's the answer here but these type of articles will always be subject to frequent changes based on POV pushing editors who believe that their college, city etc. is the best. Trying to keep this in a proper state will always be a Sisyphean task, even if it is blown up and restarted.  Philg88 talk 05:44, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

I first of all used PROD for this article, as principal editor I am now nominating the article for deletion.

When I first found it, the article had an odd history. It was originally written solely by Doctorpleiades, whose sole contribution on wikipedia was writing the original article [3] and uploading pictures of Mr Bingham to commons see [4] and [5]. It seems fairly clear there was a WP:COI in the drafting of the original by someone with a close personal relationship to the subject and sharing their views.

Having reviewed the article as originally written it was apparent that it would fall foul of policies such as WP:BLP by allowing unsubstantiated allegations, such as those reported on Mr Bingham's websites, against living persons to be written as fact.

Having looked for sources to improve the article, the ones I found were WP:SPS produced by the subject of the article. These were his two websites and a book he wrote and self-published. The only none WP:SPS source was:

I was unaware of WP:BLPPRIMARY and since the subject of the article is now complaining that the article is libellous and I was responsible for most of the rewrite I am suggesting it should be deleted. I have tagged everthing sourced to the court documents and there would be very little left without it. I have continued to work on it but now the subject is threatening to sue me with the support of the Argentine Government. [6],[7] I'd like to request Wikipedia:TNT WCMemail 01:23, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete, as the named subject appears to be upset by the article, and it is a borderline notable BLP. Depending on how seriously we view the upset subject making legal threats, it should be deleted or redirected to Wildlife of the Falkland Islands.
However, I think much of the content, representing most of the references, should be merged to Wildlife of the Falkland Islands. It should cover the Falkland islands penguins, their decline in numbers, commercial fishing, and probably mention M. Bingham, seabirds.org and Falklands.net. I believe that we may preserve the references without needing to preserve that article attribution history. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 01:35, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm not certain if there's enough independence for this article than either Morya (Theosophy) or some other article. People should review this version but that's almost entirely based on primary source material and is excessive detail on their beliefs to me. However, in terms of independent sources, both Drayer's Nicholas and Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists and Peacemakers and Dector's Nicholas Roerich - The Life And Art Of A Russian Master focus more on the artwork than the yoga teachings. Most of the other sources I can find are basically like this piece on Dennis Kucinich, just short mentions. Ricky81682 (talk) 01:01, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Gladstone Police Department[edit]

Run of the mill local police department. Police departments have no inherent notability such as settlements do. There are sources, including some reliable secondary sources, but the coverage does not extend beyond WP:ROUTINE, what one would expect for any police department. Further, all of the coverage is from Metro Portland, so it fails WP:ORG John from Idegon (talk) 01:08, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment - Have no objection to this being redirected to the community the PD serves. Indeed, I had boldly done so and was reverted with the suggestion we come here. I would however, oppose a merge. Most of the content is wholly inappropriate for a settlement article. John from Idegon (talk) 02:06, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep - I may have been the original creator of the nominated article, but I did so in response to finding that at least a dozen other "run of the mill" law enforcement agencies in Oregon had long-standing articles of their own. The nominator of this AfD has evidently taken it upon himself to effectively delete all of them by redirecting them to their constituent city/county without moving any of their content. This article is no less notable than any other police department in Oregon, as was evident prior to the one-editor purge of the 'Municipal police departments of Oregon' category. Buddy23Lee (talk) 01:50, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
What we have here is that the other "run of the mill" law enforcement agency articles shouldn't have been created either. МандичкаYO 😜 11:37, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep - for several reasons. First, the editor who unilaterally and arbitrarily merged just about every police force in Oregon (and some other places) sort of condemns the process by opposing a merge, as the redirect is a bit inappropriate if there is no relevant content on the target page. Secondly, the editor apparently sought no input from anyone else, despite there being several relevant WikiProjects to raise this issue. If it was just one article, that's one thing, but doing it wholesale is another when the editor fails to actually review each article for notability versus doing it on all. Third, the nominator made no mention of their search for sources, which is required before nominating an article for deletion on notability grounds. Next, notability is not global, as in sources such as the regional The Oregonian (or OregonLive) are not a local source. The Gladstone paper would, but not The O. Lastly, many municipal police departments of larger cities (say 20,000 residents) that have been around awhile (say 100 years or more) are often notable once people take the time to fully search out sources. It is usually a matter of taking the time to look. I'm not saying this topic is notable, but odds are it is, and the nominator did not due the search required.

  • Delete - I don't see the encyclopaedic value of articles about small police departments with no famous history KiwikiKiWi (talk) 08:35, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
  • The value relates to our readers interest in local history, how public money is being spent, whether public services are performed adequately and so forth. Our guidelines tell us that notability does not require fame. James500 (talk) 09:05, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
By "fame" I meant news stories or the like. I don't feel the purpose of Wikipedia is to record things such as whether public services are performed adequately. KiwikiKiWi (talk) 09:21, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. I'm prepared to accept this satisfies GNG. There are about eighty results in GNews. Coverage like this seems relevant. And that accreditation is something that the vast majority of police departments don't get. So not routine. A number of snippet results in GBooks relate to an employment case called Cross v Cleaver. Upon inspection of reports, the department don't seem to have been defendants. I say this only to prevent confusion. James500 (talk) 08:58, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - fails GNG. Kill with fire. МандичкаYO 😜 11:34, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
