This is a non-notable character from a minor children's novel series, secondary/tertiary material to a Marvel Comics series. A lone WP:OR editor (page creator) seems to strongly believe this character corresponds to a small role in a popular film series. However, no references exist to that effect. The apparent footnotes on the page are actually just "ref" tags enclosing further WP:OR claims, and without any cited sources. Further, if the correspondence did exist, the character would still not be notable, as articles are not handed out to unnamed characters with one or two lines from movies, even popular movies.

Totally non notable very local ambulance group. Runs only two basic ambulances and no advanced services. The only third part ref may be from the NYTimes, but it's a mere notice about the gift of an ambulance. Coverage of a suburban town by a mayor city paper, is just the same as if it were a local paper--otherwise minor local institutions in the vicinity of NYC , LA, etc, would be more notable than those in similar small communities everywhere else.

Steroidergic[edit]

Steroidergic (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: "Steroidergic" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

The title and subject matter of this article is original research. The term steroidergic (and related terms corticosteroidic, glucocorticoidic, and mineralocorticoidic that are also mentioned in the article) are made up terms not widely used in the scientific literature (see table below; note that the few hits that were found were often written by non-native English language authors or were false positives). In contrast, the terms corticosteroid, glucocorticoid, and mineralocorticoid are widely used and already have articles devoted to each. Adding "ergic" or "ic" to these terms is in analogy to CNS agents such as dopaminergics. However Wikipedia should not invent new terminology through analogy. It should only use terminology found in reliable sources. For a related discussion concerning similarly named navboxes, see this link. Boghog (talk) 06:30, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Good point. The "Steroidergics" navbox in the uses the {{Navboxes}} templates to combine several other navboxes and this combined navbox is only included in this article. Several of the included navboxes such as {{Glucocorticoidics}}, {{Mineralocorticoidics}}, {{Progestogenics}} are also problematic, but exist independent of this article and hence are a separate issue.

  • Delete - non-notable fire department in tiny hamlet; fails GNG МандичкаYO 😜 07:40, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep The topic passes the WP:GNG, being covered in detail in sources such as Wantagh Fire Department: 1900-2000, LIFE magazine and other cuttings such as these. The department is comparatively large, rather than being tiny, having multiple fire house houses and appliances. Wantagh is just the historic origin of the service, which started over 100 years ago, but it now covers a region of about 13 square miles. Per WP:ATD and WP:PRESERVE, the worst case is that we'd merge to some other page such as Nassau_County,_New_York#Fire_departments or Wantagh,_New_York#WFD but there is no single obvious target.

I know I'm going to catch flak for this because the article is about a Kennedy, but... I have to go with WP:INHERITED and WP:1E. His notability lies solely on his parents and he is known for just one thing: being stillborn to his famous parents. Those two factors do cause this article to fail WP:GNG. -- WV 04:55, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Article is about a non-notable neuro-hype "model" that forms the basis for various money-making training/coaching programs Jytdog (talk) 04:32, 5 July 2015 (UTC) I am also nominating the following related pages because they were created by the same user, who per this has completed the SCOAP training and per this "I want employers to see what my SCOAP Certification and training (delivered by this foundation) means". Editor is a WP:SPA for all things related to SCOAP. Wikipedia is not a vehicle for promotion of editors who take training courses nor the training courses. Other articles are under consideration for speedy and those that survive, I will add here...

SCOAP-Profile (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)
  • Since the topic of this page has scientific pretensions, I'm going to treat it as such and recommend deletion. Sources are all affiliated. Browsing the academic search engines and databases by their "cited by" links, I found exactly two publications that cite any of these sources: one is this book chapter, the other is this book. That's not enough. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 08:32, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • For SCOAP-Profile, Merge or delete as an insufficiently notable topic on its own. It seems like a component of SCOAP, an article about the model where the profiling according to the model could be discussed. Therefore, I would support merging to that article if that article survives, or else deleting as a non-notable component of a non-notable parent topic if that article is deleted.

Not notable, or even verifiable. For a "major" title with lasting influence, I'm having an extremely difficult time finding a single reliable source. While this claims that the game is lost, I am unable to verify that this has ever existed. The only source I have thus far been able to find is this, which is hardly confirmation of its existence. With the lack of information (a "major" title would surely have something out there on the internet), I can only conclude that either this game vanished without trace long ago, or it's a hoax.

  • Redirect to Kelton Flinn. It looks like this article had a reference at one point that was deleted here. I'm unsure why. In any event, the reference (link to actual page of book can be found here). At a minimum, the article doesn't appear to be a hoax. That said, I don't think there's any evidence it passes muster as notable, and given that it's already mentioned in our article on the game's creator, I think we should redirect there. ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 02:51, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
