      • David, it's borderline, but I think she does meet GNG, though there's clearly a strong PR element. She appears fairly regularly in the media when they need a quote from a psychologist (Google news search). There's an interview in The Independent [1]; a mention in the Los Angeles Times of her research for Spotify [2] (I assume based on a press release); a column in The Huffington Post [3]; a couple of BBC radio interviews (e.g. from 01:40:55); and several television appearances.

  • Delete. There are no references, and the "links" do very little to establish notability. Maproom (talk) 20:35, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete. purely promotion, written by admitted paid editor,[4] Accomplishments not adequately documented. DGG ( talk ) 08:37, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Neutral/comment - Hmmm. The article is definitely not great, and whoever did it clearly isn't worth what they're being paid if they can't do it properly - but I'm not so sure that the subject is not notable. There are a great many references to her in various books, magazines and news articles, in various languages. In addition to a number of promising media sources, she was interviewed at length by TIME magazine, which is a pretty good indicator of notability, and there is commentary at the beginning on her career. I am intrigued by all those non-English sources on her - they seem to mostly be in Italian. But searches for the person does indicate that she could possibly pass GNG guidelines, so I can't jump on the delete bandwagon - although I've no objection to the article being deleted and then recreated properly. Mabalu (talk) 09:34, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep - The article has it's issues. Regarding notability there are many articles that have more than trivial mentions. For example [this article] and [book coverage] go well beyond trivial mention. With the large number of sources that go beyond simple mentions of her as an example author/designer/anthropologist it satisfies [WP:BIO] Gab4gab (talk) 19:47, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep — The article does need work. Between the references recently added to the article (as a list of links, some admittedly not good sources), Mabalu & Gab4gab's cases above, and my own Google searches, it does seem probable that there's at least the minimum level of notability. E.g. NY Times article on her Murph9000 (talk) 20:04, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep as the following three pieces clearly satisfy GNG:
It appears there's more, but this is enough. Rebbing 17:49, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Delete. Minimally sourced article, written far more like a résumé than an encyclopedia article, of a lawyer with no particularly strong claim to passing WP:LAWYERS.

Delete. Completely unsourced article about a community newspaper in a small suburb of a larger city. WP:NMEDIA does not grant an automatic presumption of notability to all newspapers that exist -- a newspaper still has to be the subject of reliable source coverage to qualify for a Wikipedia article, and does not get a "no sourcing required" freebie just because its own self-published website or an online archive of its issues nominally verifies that it existed. I'm willing to withdraw this if somebody can actually find some reliable sourcing about it, but nothing in the article right now is enough. Bearcat (talk) 17:40, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Johnpacklambert, Unscintillating, MB -- what would you guys think about a redirect? K.e.coffman (talk) 01:37, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
I don't think a redirect would be particularly useful since the target doesn't say anything about this paper except that it existed, but I have no objection either. A similar situation came up recently with Bahía del Duque where the AFD result was redirect to a list also (you may remember you voted for this). But User:Doncram turned the list into a table so a sentence or two could be added to each entry. That would be good here too. MB 03:15, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Delete. WP:BLP of a person notable only as a non-winning candidate for political office. There's very little substance, with the entire article consisting of three sentences summarizing his campaign planks — and as for the sourcing, two of the references are to a patents directory, one's to Ballotpedia and the rest are all WP:ROUTINE coverage of the election campaign itself. While it seems that one campaign plank got him a bit of wider media attention than anything else did, a sentence or two about that campaign plank in Nevada gubernatorial election, 2010 is all that's really needed — there's just not enough meat here for a standalone BLP of him to be warranted separately from the election article.

Delete. Biographical article, tagged for notability since 2011 with no substantive improvement, of a person whose main claim of notability is that he was an unsuccessful candidate for mayor. This is not a claim that passes WP:NPOL, but there's very little substance here to claim that he's notable for anything else -- and the sourcing here is all either deadlinked or local coverage about his death.

Delete. Poorly sourced WP:BLP of a person notable only as a city councillor, in a city not large enough to carry its city councillors over WP:GNG (that distinction only goes to major, internationally famous global cities, not to places on the order of Tacoma.) This is sourced almost entirely to primary sources, like his own profile on the city's website and a set of committee meeting minutes -- there's just one piece of actual media coverage here, and it's an overview article of the entire city council election in an alt-weekly.

Delete. Poorly sourced WP:BLP of a person notable mainly as a county supervisor and as a government bureaucrat. The county supervisor role is not one that gets him over WP:NPOL, so his includability is entirely dependent on sourcing him over WP:GNG for the bureaucratic job -- but there are just two sources here, they're both stacked on the county supervisor role, and they're both deadlinks. This is not enough. Bearcat (talk) 00:55, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Delete. Poorly sourced WP:BLP of a person notable only as an unelected candidate for office. This is not an automatic pass of WP:NPOL; if you cannot show and source credible evidence that he was already eligible for an article for some other reason independent of his candidacy, then he must win the election, not merely run in it, to collect notability because election. But literally all we have for sourcing here is primary sources, like his own campaign site, his own press releases about his own campaign, and his profile on the website of a directly affiliated organization. This is not the kind of sourcing it takes to get a person over WP:GNG. Bearcat (talk) 00:50, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Possibly non-notable property development company. All information about the company itself in the article is sourced to an "Our Story" page on the company's website. There is one section on a definitely notable building the company developed (One Central Park). However, the sources provided for that section are a link to a press release by a partner development company that worked on the building, and a link to an award the building received. The award appears to be the only legitimately third party coverage provided in the article and the award is for the building, not the company (which is not mentioned in the award article). ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 00:43, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

This is a non-notable freeware game. Coverage of this game is almost non existent and the only references to it are download links. There is no reliable source which ever did a review or even looked at this game. It has been created with an open source game-maker software. The "price" it won was a non notable award by the organisation which created the game-maker software. The "company" (not an actual company it seems) of the game has been defunct since about 10 years after it created 4 similar freeware games (and their WP-page has been deleted by an AFD too). The article fails WP:GNG therefore. The game also fails WP:NVIDEOGAMES too, as no significant (the 2 'reviews' of the game in the article are on blog-like non RS sources) coverage of this game exists. The only thing which comes close to that is an extremely short 4-sentence blurp on the borderline-RS Adventure Gamers website. There was a previous AFD 10 years ago, but they never established actual notability by our guidelines, and it seemingly went to 'keep' because editors apparently expected this game and its sequel to become much larger.

This issue has been addressed once already and there seems to be some confusion that Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli is not only a self published author as the International Thriller Writers Organization only accepts authors with at least one book published by a recognized publisher can join, in Rita's case her novel published by AmazonCrossing. This is a formal publisher not self published, where Amazon translates and covers the process of publishing as a regular publishing house.

it remains true that the translated book is almost totally unknown, and I don't think has any reviews. Even if we accept that all the works are not self published, she still is not notable. DGG ( talk ) 01:39, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

comment The 'International Thriller Writers' organization membership requirements do not categorically bar self-published authors from full membership. At the organization's website their position is summed up with
"Self published writers are not automatically excluded from being a qualified publisher, but they bear a higher burden to demonstrate their status."

Delete. WP:TOOSOON article about a radio station which began airing a test signal in 2016, but which is not properly sourceable as having officially launched its permanent signal as of today. Per WP:NMEDIA, however, a radio station does not get an article as long as it's still only planned or testing -- the time for an article is once reliable sources can be added which confirm that the station has officially and permanently taken to the airwaves, not the moment it gets a license or starts testing. (The testing phase can, for example, reveal unforeseen problems, such as interference with another station or with radio communication infrastructure at the airport — see CHNO-FM if you don't believe me on that one — which complicate or postpone or completely kibosh the real launch.) No prejudice against recreation if and when it's properly sourceable as having permanently launched, but radio stations that are still only in the testing phase don't get advance articles on Wikipedia anymore.

  • Merge per J Milburn but protection seems a bit over the top, as the IP address waited 3.5 years since the previous AfD to "work on it", and I do note that one primary source had been published in the interim, so it's hard to state unequivocally that this was done in bad faith, even though I agree it should be merged at the present time. We have TTN to bring such things to our attention, so I don't see the harm in leaving such a de-redirected article unprotected until and unless there is specific disruption.

Delete. WP:BLP of a person notable only as a city councillor in a municipality not large enough to confer notability on its city councillors under WP:NPOL. City councillors get a presumption of notability only in major international global cities on the order of Toronto, New York City or London -- in any place outside of that range, a municipal councillor gets an article only if he can be well-sourced as more than just locally notable for more than just existing as a city councillor. In addition, this actually misrepresents some of its sourcing -- while three of the links claim to be from the Toronto Star (and would therefore demonstrate that he was getting nationalized coverage), in reality they're not: all three of them are actually in the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, the same publication as most of the other sources. Plus fully a quarter of the sourcing here is sitting on primary sources like his own website and his own LinkedIn and a WordPress blog he was the writer of. And even the ones that are reliable sources mostly aren't about him, but merely namecheck his existence in coverage of events. So none of this is enough to claim that he passes WP:GNG.

Delete. Single-sourced BLP of a person notable only as a city councillor and non-winning mayoral candidate in a city not large enough to carry its city councillors over WP:NPOL. As always, city councillors are not automatically granted a presumption of notability just because they exist -- outside the very narrow range of internationally famous global cities, a city councillor gets a Wikipedia article only if she can be extremely well-sourced as more than just locally notable for more than just the fact of existing as a city councillor. But with just one source here, which is local coverage in the context of announcing her unsuccessful run for mayor, that standard has not been satisfied.

Delete. WP:BLP of a mountaineer, who has a potentially valid claim of notability but isn't sourced even close to well enough to support it properly -- of the three sources here, two are primary ones that cannot carry notability at all, and the one that is real media coverage just makes her a WP:BLP1E. As always, a person like this is not automatically entitled to a Wikipedia article just because she exists -- she could qualify for an article if she could be shown as the subject of enough reliable source coverage to pass WP:GNG, but one piece of media coverage doesn't accomplish that.

Delete. Poorly sourced WP:BLP of a person notable only as a non-winning candidate for office. As always, an election candidate is not automatically entitled to Wikipedia articles because candidate -- if you cannot make a credible and properly sourced claim that he already had preexisting notability for other reasons independent of his candidacy, then he must win the election, not merely run in it, to become eligible for one. But what we have here for sourcing is two primary sources (his own campaign website and a press release), two dead links and just one news article about the launch of his campaign -- and one news article is not enough coverage to get him over GNG in lieu of failing NPOL.

While this page was undeleted by @Georgewilliamherbert in April of 2015, I feel that the concerns he mentioned on the talk page (most especially notability) have not been adequately addressed since then. The only sources are tied to the developers (HashiCorp), and I was unable to find much in the way of potential sources that weren't.

My first thought would be a redirect to either Vagrant, as Packer is apparently closely tied to it functionality, or HashiCorp, perhaps with the addition there of a section on it. WikiPuppies bark dig 05:08, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Delete. Poorly sourced WP:BLP of a person notable only as a school board trustee and an unsuccessful candidate for higher office. The only marginal claim of "more notable than the norm for unelected candidates" here is that he was the first-ever candidate of a shortlived new political party that never really had any electoral success -- but that's not an inclusion criterion that passes WP:NPOL, so his eligibility for a Wikipedia article would depend entirely on being sourced well enough to get over WP:GNG. But none of the sourcing here accomplishes that; apart from two local news articles about being elected to and resigning from the school board, the only other sources we have here are a self-published article on his own blog and three dead links of raw election results. This is not the kind of coverage that it takes to make a school board trustee or an unelected candidate for office notable enough for inclusion. Bearcat (talk) 00:08, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Delete. My edit of 20:59, 11 November 2006‎, was "(moved Harry Welty to Minnesota 8th congressional district election, 2006: Moving to campaign article per Wikipedia:Candidates and elections, because individual is non-notable per WP:BIO - failed candidacy.)" However, the article about that specific district election is gone, and is now just a redirect to Minnesota's 8th congressional district (Back in 2006, we had fantasies of having one article for every House of Representatives election for every year; in 2016, all we have is one section in one article for all the elections of a district.) So there no longer is room to even include minor parties in the relevant, existing Wikipedia article. -- John Broughton (♫♫) 03:34, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Keep: Two sources in the article are now 404s but the other describes him as stated and is neutral, third-party coverage. There is a legitimate question if this is a BIO1E situation or if his notability as a Native American is enough, at least along with his murder. I'll do a bit more digging and see what else is found.

    • Follow up: I added "+Wampanoag" to the search and got better results. I think this one is a keeper, though it needs more work and sourcing. He appears to have had respect as a modern Wampanoag person who worked to preserve cultural traditions. Here is what I am finding:
  1. http://www.capecodtimes.com/article/19970909/news01/309099806 News coverage discussing his impact in the area and his importance to his people.
  2. newspaper coverage of the murder
  3. http://www.wldwind.com/qf.htm solid obit, describes his accomplishments
  4. Tribal newsletter notes a memorial competition named after him: here, also noted here, and here.
  5. http://www.wickedlocal.com/x1098996353/PRESERVATION-PERSPECTIVE-The-wonders-of-wampum Local press coverage noting something he did in the course of his cultural education work prior to his death.
  6. Minor stuff: noted in list of people representing ethnic groups in his area, art depiction in traditional regalia.
    • In short, I'm pretty well convinced
  • Keep - per improvements made with sources. also WP:GNG.BabbaQ (talk) 23:05, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
