Non-notable company, I can't even find one good reference to help improve the article. Multiple searches through Google News, Books, newspapers and browser found nothing as shown here, here, here and here (mostly press releases). It actually seems that some of the most attention they got was a theft of millions of dollars of computer chips in 1995. I attempted several searches with the MLB, NASCAR, etc. partnerships but found nothing. SwisterTwister talk 05:35, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Merge with Doppelmayr Garaventa Group. I confess I used Google translate, but according to the company's website, they were bought out in December 2013.[1] I'm pretty sure that's what happened, anyway. According to this, the company had 6 employees in 2014. I don't think that's reliable, but lacking better sources, it strongly suggests that this company is too small to expect independent notability. A redirect and a couple of sentences on the other article seems appropriate, though. Grayfell (talk) 07:44, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

The article is quite poorly written, badly referenced and I don't think entirely accurate. I propose it instead redirects to the Defective Interfering RNA article, which covers the points in better detail and is essentially the same thing, although could itself do with some expanding. Having just covered this as part of my degree, this current page appears to serve little purpose when compared to the better written Defective Interfering RNA one. More generally, I think the concept needs to be re-written to include the idea of DI-DNAs - which also exist - not just DI-RNAs. rhodesj971 (talk) 11:10, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Series of articles about tool-lending libraries in Canada, none making any substantive claim of notability per WP:ORG and all relying almost entirely on primary sourcing to the libraries' own websites — except for the occasional citation to census demographic data for the city that the library in question happens to be located in (which is not coverage of the libraries), the only reliable source anywhere in the entire set is a single article about the Sudbury library in the city's local community weekly (which would be acceptable as one source amid a diversity of sources, but is not widely distributed enough to confer WP:GNG by itself if it's the article's only source.) "Notable because it exists" is not a thing we do on Wikipedia — notability must be earned by meeting specific criteria that none of these claim to meet, and/or referencing the topic far better than this. (And for what it's worth, while I can't actually prove anything, something about the fact that these all happened at once is pinging my conflict of interest radar.) Delete.

  • I only recently set up the Tool Library sites, and fully intend to include links to various newspaper (National Post, Ottawa Citizen, Toronto Star) accounts to establish notability minimums. Although most of the news coverage is for the major city tool libraries e.g. Vancouver (1st), Toronto (most branches), Halifax; Sudbury was interesting as an outgrowth of the public library system. I set up the sites, after reading about the Ottawa tool library and in a similar style to the other Canadian public library sites I put together. Victoriaedwards (talk) 14:33, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep the following four below. Meets WP:GNG. Sources below.
  • Sudbury Tool LibraryMerge to List of tool-lending libraries. Source searches are not providing enough coverage to warrant a standalone article.
– Also please note that on Wikipedia, the absence of citations in an article (as distinct from the non-existence of sources) does not indicate that the subject is not notable. Topic notability is based upon source availability, rather than the state of sourcing in articles. North America1000 18:52, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

List of Palestinian leaders[edit]

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

This list is an unsalvageable anachronism. A significant propoprtion of people currently listed does not meet the inclusion criterion of having been "the most senior official with the role of heading the region in the southern Levant while it was titled Palestine or a variation thereof", with the reasons ranging from "not most senior" via "not an official" to "not titled Palestine". Besides, that criterion would make for a list of leaders of Palestine, not Palestinian leaders. All of that possibly could be fixed, but the basic problem cannot: This list presupposes a continuity of leadership from antiquity to modern times that simply does not exist. Huon (talk) 23:58, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep. I have added an improve tag. i think improving would be prefarable to deletion. This is a notable topic but I am not an expert on it. I plan to leave a notice on a wikiproject for a more knowledgable editor to improve it. Palestinians are a people of 16 million people. It is lacking if this encyclopedia assumes that such a large number of people have not had any leaders in their history. Hhplactube (talk) 00:57, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Defining the topic precisely is more difficult than with most lists like this, but that doesn't mean it can't be made into a useful article. The difference between "leaders of Palestine" and "Palestinian leaders" is something that can be worked out in a naming discussion. Zerotalk 02:56, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

When all the original research is removed, there's three authors discussing completely different things, and barely using the term at that. Does not appear in any tertiary sources. Attempts to find academic sources only pulled up yet more authors having to define how they were using the term in a new and unique fashion (indicating that there is no unified concept of Creativism) while primarily focusing on something else entirely.

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (biographies) requirement. Now, on the surface this looks nice. But if you look at the refs in more details, it falls apart - this is a professional vanity bio, authored by the WP:SPA User:NomiStature. Refs either mention him in passing, or are promotional, likely self-written or paid-for PR pieces. The "Shorty Interview"? Self-written SNS-like entry. The nuviun profile looks great, but nuviun itself seems to be a PR company, or some other form of marketing entity. Ditto for Cox Blue. The "Reuters" piece is a traditional PR tool, note the " Reuters is not responsible for the content in this press release." A bunch of other elinks sound "great" only to reveal short self-written profiles and such. I am not seeing any reliable, independent sources here, just a lot of PR hot air.

  • Delete. No reliable sources. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:16, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete and salt. There's just nothing to show that this author is ultimately notable enough to have an article. The thing about selling on Amazon is that this is something that is so easily manipulated (especially since Amazon can have so many subcategories that a handful of sales will make a huge difference) and so difficult to verify (since these rankings are continually changing with each sale, there is really never any permanent record of this anywhere on the site), Amazon rankings will not be used to show notability. Unless they change something in the future it's unlikely that this will ever become something that will give notability on that basis alone. Selling well can make it more likely that there will be coverage, but it's not a guarantee and I can't find enough coverage to warrant a keep. Since this was quickly re-created after it was A7'd on the 23rd, this may need to be salted. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 05:28, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I know that this could qualify for an A7 and even a G11 (the EL section and several portions of the article are fairly spammy), but this should go through a full AfD since this will help prevent re-creation before he passes notability guidelines. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 05:31, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Other than the two F-News Magazine articles, there seems to be little that I can find online that gives anything verifiable about this "master," and it appears that the coverage all but died after those two articles. The article itself is filled with superlatives and unverifiable claims from what appears to me to be a promotional Web site. Not my area of expertise, but it seems like that there is something pretty wrong with the article. Delete unless something else is developed during the discussion. --Nlu (talk) 01:01, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep - article is over-the-top and needs a major cleanup, but the subject is definitely notable. See Michael Sullivan's Modern Chinese Artists: A Biographical Dictionary. -Zanhe (talk) 01:30, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep - As the primary contributor of this article and a PhD in Chinese Art History, Chan Sheng-Yao is considered as a significant artist in the field with many publications dedicated to his artwork in both Chinese and English. As mentioned above and in the article, many notable scholars in the field of Chinese Art History such as Emily Tsai, Chu-Tsing Li, Michael Sullivan, Philip Wu, have written about his work. Unfortunately, many sources of Chan’s work and publications are not available on the Internet and I tried to connect as many links to online articles and mentions of his work that I could, including recent events such as his lectures at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Loyola University. To further compensate, I had reproduced some of the prefaces (in Chinese and English) written by others from publications that I was unable to find online links for. Taking into consideration reviewer comments, I have removed these reproduced prefaces. All remaining content and links are now verified and direct links have been drawn from these third party articles and publications. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jjjso (talkcontribs) 06:15, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Really? And surely you realise source 5 is his own self-published CV. WP:GNG requires strong evidence of multiple reliable news/book coverage about the subject. Sure, he was the subject of the news article in The Independent in 2006. The Daily Mail article (source 2) above is about an explosion at Luton Airport where Harper was passing by, so not about him at all. Someone has to do more than write/co-write some books before getting a Wikipedia profile. Sionk (talk) 20:30, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
Well of course it's self-published. It's a CV. Look, I didn't mean to imply that the article about delays at Heathrow contributed to notability. I started with the page, which made him sound like a self-taught buff who wrote popular books. I ran a routine search just to make sure, found the Heathrow thing which made me look harder. As in, with all of his initials. And he became noteworthy. A young technology expert with an unusual back story (attested by that 2006 profile in The Independent) Whose popular books got some attention (and sold) And who is now embarked on a career of significant accomplishment (attested by the CV, but also at the veritably published articles), although still very young.

I don't think this article passes WP:GNG. It hasn't been the subject of reliable, significant, in-depth coverage. Most of the article isn't sourced. In fact, of the seven sources in the article, three of them are published by Apple itself, and only one is exclusively about the application (the Macworld article). As far as the application itself, there's nothing very special about it: not enough to warrant its own article, in my opinion. I also think it's telling that at the moment, the article isn't listed on the Note (disambiguation) page. StewdioMACK Talk page 09:40, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Delete: I support the deletion. This is a very recent meme which appeared in March 2015, after the Twitter account by the name AdarshLiberal was created, which currently has only 8700 followers. This article serves mainly to promote the Twitter account. The interest seems to have died quickly. According to Google Trends, "Adarsh Liberal" was zero compared to other news of the period.

  • Delete - There is clearly some conflation here between notability of the meme and notability of what's behind the meme. I would say that this article is based on the former, when in fact it is really just an expression of a larger political issue. It should therefore be a blurb in the context of a larger (appropriate) article, as it clearly has no staying power. NTEMP doesn't address keeping the article; it addresses the need for significant coverage, and I'm not seeing it - a few articles repeating the same things aren't significant.

The result was keep. Given the views expressed, there's no point in continuing this. I hope someone will think of a better qualifier than "adventurer" DGG ( talk ) 01:37, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Promotional article for non- notable traveller. Most of his accomplishments have no been firsts, but "One of the first"s, or unsuccessful attempts DGG ( talk ) 18:13, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep -the article needs some work to cut down promotional tone etc, but the topic is covered in the referenced publications and the attempts are notable S3venevan (talk) 05:25, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep notability is not determined by importance of accomplishments (which is largest subjective), but rather depth of reliable source coverage (whcih mostly is not). Here, significant coverage by Mike O'Shea The Irish Times and The Irish Examiner, among others, makes the subject notable. --ThaddeusB (talk) 20:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
