British Independence Day[edit]

British Independence Day (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)

This is in effect a recreation of a previously deleted article. It does not add any substantial new information in my view. Previous discussions leaned to WP:SYNTH, in effect an attempt to create notability for an idea where no such notability exists. The logic of the article is clearly lacking too, as the United Kingdom is already an independent nation, attempts to claim that it is not are deliberarely misleading. Previous discussion is at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Debate over a British Independence Day observed in the United Kingdom (2nd nomination) Shritwod (talk) 07:39, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Completely non notable categorisation of alumni from a selected group of schools. Whilst each BLP in the article is notable in their own right (at least has their own articles) as are each school, the respective schools that each name are affiliated to also already has an alumni section attached to that article. Furthermore, the list appears to be a interest project of just particular user. Ajf773 (talk) 07:33, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

The addition of the proposal-for-deletion flag appears to have been malicious, and a possible instance of sock puppetry.

It was added by someone (86.84.64.37) who ostensibly has no previous history of editing articles on Wikipedia. One minute later a comment endorsing the deletion proposal appeared, from a Wikipedia identity (Wikihmc) which likewise has no previous history of editing.

I find it implausible that someone with no previous experience as a Wikipedia editor should make their first edit the endorsement of an article-deletion proposal.Ranger2006 (talk) 11:49, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment: WP:TOOSOON, I reckon – the handful of singles that she has put out appear to be self-released on iTunes, Spotify, etc. and haven't charted anywhere. The competitions she has entered are non-notable. She appears to be participating in some kind of qualifying round for Eurovision, but it's not clear whether it's the main Eurovision Song Contest, or even if she is taking part for Norway. In any case, the article is a slightly altered version of the biography on her website so it's really just taken from one primary source, and independent reliable sources appear to be non-existent. Richard3120 (talk) 18:52, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
    She's competing to represent San Marino at the Eurovision. ׺°”˜`”°º×ηυηzια׺°”˜`”°º× 18:58, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for confirming that – it's what I thought from reading the external link in the article, but it seemed odd that a Norwegian would represent San Marino... it shouldn't do, considering in the past we've had Americans representing the UK, a Canadian represent Switzerland, and an Australian represent Ireland (twice).
Anyway, that still makes me think this is WP:TOOSOON – if she wins the nomination and takes part in the competition she will probably pass WP:NMUSIC, but right now she doesn't. Richard3120 (talk) 23:00, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep A songwriter with a number 1 on the World Billboard list for "Deja Vu" which is found on the "4 Walls" album of the Korean girl band F (x). I think the nominator may not have realized to search for the Norwegian name "Camilla Norderud" because there is extensive in-depth coverage about her.[1][2][3] She doesn't even need to fulfill the requirements for WP:MUSIC (though she probably would) because she already satisfies WP:GNG due to "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." Lonehexagon (talk) 02:11, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

References

I'm not convinced that the Billboard World chart fact gives her notability – she's one of six writers on just one track on the album, and it was the album that made no. 1 on the chart, not the song, so it's pushing it a bit to say she's had a no. 1 hit. But I had read the three references, and they are reliable sources, which is why I'm still on the fence about this nomination. Richard3120 (talk) 04:59, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep - indeed songwriter with a number 1 hit. Covers WP:MUSIC.BabbaQ (talk) 07:24, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment - you guys seriously keep articles of someone just because they have co-written a non-single song on an album that went #1 in a component chart? I don't think this is nearly enough to make her relevant - one songwriting credit on a song and zero presence in any national charts or even listed in the national chart's website archive.

This biography doesn't need to fulfill the requirements for WP:MUSIC (though it appears it does that too) because she already satisfies WP:GNG due to "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." Lonehexagon (talk) 18:49, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Only thing they covered is literally her attempt at representing San Marino at the Eurovision. If we applied this criteria, all Eurovision national final contestants would deserve their own article. ׺°”˜`”°º×ηυηzια׺°”˜`”°º× 18:58, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

This TV show appears to be non-notable and fails WP:GNG. Couldn't find sufficient reliable sources on a search. ZXCVBNM (TALK) 21:01, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete I personally remember watching it, but in terms of Wikipedia it's not notable and only supported by a single source. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 21:14, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Merge to G4 (U.S. TV channel) The show happened, we can document that, but I don't think it can have its own standalone page. A merge is better. (I would suspect a lot of G4 programs lack significant coverage, and this might be where a brief expanded List of programs broadcast by G4 (with 2-3 lines for each program) could be given. --Masem (t) 22:06, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment - I am very skeptical of the goodwill of the nominator and votes above, all three of which have come here from a very related discussion at Talk:Portal (series)#Requested move 12 February 2018 and seem to be motivated against this article primarily as a way to affect the outcome of that move discussion. On principle, as I'm also coming from that RM, I'm not going to vote, but I don't see any reason to think this article fails our WP:NOTABILITY guideline as a series which ran for two seasons on an established network. The article has been here since 2005 with no prior AfD. Sources can be fixed, and the article can be improved. I ask future voters and the closer investigate the motivations of the nom and voters coming from that RM. -- Netoholic @ 00:30, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
    • This is a straight up assumption of bad faith/ad hominem and not proper Wikipedia behavior. I am not sure what's wrong with seeing an article in another discussion and calling out a clear and obvious problem. The fact that it lasted since 2005 was more because nobody cared than because it was notable. In my opinion the nominator should have checked to see if the article was notable before proposing a move instead of assuming as such.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 04:45, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
    • It can be improved sure, but where are the sources that would help do so? WP:N says "Information on Wikipedia must be verifiable; if no reliable third-party sources can be found on a topic, then it should not have a separate article." ~ Dissident93 (talk) 06:38, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose this passes WP:NTV, mentioned in Guinness World Records 2017 Gamer's Edition, and has only been brought here because of Talk:Portal (series) where there is a discussion about the correct dab being (video game series). Because video game editors currently have a WP:LOCALCONSENSUS to claim "series" for video games, therefore competing TV series articles risk AfD. This is not the way to help readers by zapping TV series which share the names of video games. In ictu oculi (talk) 07:34, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
    • Any more sources outside of a Guinness World Records? Even if Portal (series) goes back to Portal (video game series), this article would still lack sources and overall notability. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 10:03, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
      • If there is a local consensus, then embarking on a one man/woman crusade to nominate every article in existence for a move is not the proper procedure and is a WP:DISRUPTIVE example of WP:POINT. If we reach a consensus at WP:VPP, we can get a bot to do it instead of arguing about it.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 13:33, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
This discussion hasn't gone to Village Pump as far as I know. If it does please ping me because I don't watch it. Re above still pass WP:NTV. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:12, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
On that note, I don't see how you can claim bad faith while openly scheming like this about your motives for all the move duscussions. Sergecross73 msg me 01:32, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
Per WP:NTV: "A [...] television program is likely to be notable if it airs on a network of radio or television stations (either national or regional in scope), or on a cable television channel with a broad regional or national audience". It was also in the Guinness Book of Records. --woodensuperman 11:19, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
I think the key word is "likely" not "guaranteed to be notable". That doesn't automatically give every TV program notability.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 16:25, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
No, but it somewhat shifts the burden of proof onto those that would want it deleted to demonstrate that it isn't worthy of inclusion. Despite the show being cancelled 14 years ago, and a title which hinders a lot of search methods, I've found two new sources just during the span of this discussion (a magazine and a book) which cite the television show as an important early example of the merger of TV and video games. I have no doubt that more exist, but that's already two more sources than I think were needed to establish baseline notability as cited in WP:NTV. -- Netoholic @ 21:29, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

What remains is Scouting involvement and awards, which are not inherently notable, and local philanthropy, valuable community involvement but again insufficient for the biographical notability criteria here.

  • Keep per Wikipedia:AIRCRASH as this was a hull loss for the feeder airline of a major cargo airline. Agree it's not the most notable accident in aviation history. SportingFlyer (talk) 01:53, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Want to clarify my comment above: it's still notable. News articles: [8] [9] [10] Followup local broadcast news article that's 1) on YouTube 2) was on for an early three-minute block in the broadcast: [11] Secondary sources (official and blogs): [12] [13] SportingFlyer (talk) 17:22, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete WP:GNG, WP:NOTNEWS. AIRCRASH is only an essay and not policy, but would probably fail it anyway. Non-notable accident with no notable consequences / effects.--Petebutt (talk) 02:20, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep - this was a hull loss accident. I reject the argument that accidents involving cargo aircraft are less notable than accidents involving aircraft that carry passengers. As long as the aircraft involved is of a size that meets our agreed criteria, then it should not matter what it was carrying. Mjroots (talk) 08:50, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Question for Mjroots. Is the agreed criteria you refer to a gross weight of more than 12,500 lb?
I believe that accidents involving freifght aircraft are much more common than those involving self-loading cargo. Which would mave them less notable.TheLongTone (talk) 13:46, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
I was referring to the passenger carrying capacity of a non-cargo version of that type of aircraft. However, the aircraft type in question also exceeds the weight you quoted. Either way, we have a large enough aircraft that a hull loss means it should be capable of passing WP:GNG via WP:V x WP:RS. Mjroots (talk) 09:10, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Weak Keep - The nominator's footnote numbers are a little off, but this band has received passing mentions in Blabbermouth, Metal Injection, and Loudwire which are all reliable sources.

  • Keep - I have cleaned up the page to include good sources. It is one of the fastest growing spirits brands in the world according to most alcohol related websites, so I think notability is not in doubt. Nidhi.b.dalal (talk) 02:21, 14 February 2018 (UTC) Note to closing admin: Nidhi.b.dalal (talkcontribs) is the creator of the page that is the subject of this AfD.

Keep - I was checking the names in the "List of vodkas" page and most of the vodkas are less notable but still have reviewed pages. While Deep Eddy doesn't have a HuffPost or CNN covering it, very rarely do local spirit brands get that sort of coverage (unless you are Johnny Walker). most spirits focused coverages exist. Take Laphroaig or Grey Goose , two major spirit brands - they have badly written pages but rightly reviewed. Compared to that, this page is an improvement. If you're in Texas, everyone knows this brand. I agree with the author - notability is fairly certain. I do think better sources still exist.Caninelover (talk) 14:08, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

This is the English Wikipedia (of the world), not to be confused with the Texas Drinks Guide Wikipedia.
(And, to be blunt: The article holds 30 references, yet you certainly do not need to spend hours, meticulously reading everything in every one of them, before becoming highly suspicious of somebody trying to blow a lot of smoke, hoping that quantity of references will help sneak the article to dodge the notability requirement.)

  • Keep Looks like he made international news with his drawn forecast in 2013. Was the first meteorologist to go viral internationally for doing so. Looks to be "on the beach" but we should watch his next move before deleting. 5:34, 20 February 2018 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by CantWX111 (talkcontribs)

  • Delete. There are potential notability claims being made here, but there are no reliable sources being provided to support them. This has also been tagged for several months as a likely conflict of interest with advertorial overtones, but there's been an edit war over the past couple of weeks, with an anonymous IP removing the tags on the basis of "improvements" which didn't consist of actually changing any of the advertorialism or adding any sources, but merely unwikifying the entire article (including the categories) so that it was a linkless and uncategorized dead end — and they revert-warred over it enough times that I've had to sprot the article against unregistered editors. So no prejudice against recreation in the future if somebody can rewrite it neutrally and reference it properly, but nothing claimed in the article entitles them to an automatic inclusion freebie in the absence of valid sources for it.

Although I was heavily involved on the keep side in the original AFD discussion a decade ago, Wikipedia's notability and sourcing requirements for bands have been tightened up considerably since then. Their most solid notability claim at the time was charting on CBC Radio 3, but that's now much more clearly deprecated as a WP:BADCHART that cannot get a band over NMUSIC #2 by itself anymore, and they haven't done anything since releasing This Beautiful Town in 2006, so they don't have a solid claim to passing any other NMUSIC criterion — and they simply don't have any strong reliable source coverage about them to pass WP:GNG, either. They were a valid article topic at the time, but our notability and sourcing standards are much stricter in 2018 than they were a decade ago, and this band just doesn't have anything that passes them anymore.

(1) The article is unreferenced. It fails WP:V. A WP:BEFORE search turns up nothing useful.
(2) The subject is described as a charter airline, which makes a discussion of destinations an unconfirmable description.
(3) Holidays Czech Airlines is described as a subsidiary of Czech Airlines which makes this article an unnecessary fork. Rhadow (talk) 01:23, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete. While there are a couple of "not as terrible as I was expecting" sources here (a review of the EP in Exclaim!, and a couple of short blurbs about the releases of videos), they're not supporting anything that constitutes an WP:NMUSIC pass — even NMUSIC #1, the criterion that just requires media coverage to exist, still requires more substantive coverage to exist than just short blurbs.

Advertorially tinted WP:BLP of an actor, politician and businessman, with no strong claim to passing our inclusion standards for any of those endeavours and no evidence of enough reliable source coverage about him to clear WP:GNG. His notability as an actor boils down to "has had roles", and his notability as a politician amounts to "smalltown public safety commissioner" and "non-winning candidate for Congress" -- but none of those three confer an automatic inclusion freebie on a person just because he exists, and the sourcing here is complete garbage right across the board: the acting is sourced entirely to IMDb, another IMDb-like directory, a non-notable blog and a YouTube video, while the politics stuff is heavily reference-overkilled (five to seven separate cites on a single sentence, three times over) to glancing namechecks of his existence in sources that are not about him -- such as a brief namecheck of his existence as Anna Eshoo's challenger in a media endorsement of Eshoo, routine FEC reports of the type that every candidate for Congress has to file, and raw tables of election results. And then for his business career, we bounce right back to his own self-published web presence.
Nothing stated in the article is an "automatic" notability freebie that entitles him to have a Wikipedia article just because he exists: actors do not get an automatic WP:NACTOR pass just because they've had roles, political candidates do not get an WP:NPOL pass just for being candidates, and businesspeople do not get an automatic pass over our notability standards for businesspeople just because their business has a website. He has to be the subject of enough coverage in reliable sources to pass WP:GNG for those things, but none of the sourcing here, not even one footnote out of the 33 listed here, counts for anything whatsoever toward getting him over GNG.
