A non notable term combing two topics (roller coaster+Dark ride). There was Black Hole (roller coaster), which is an instance of this articles subject and is notable, but there is no evidence that this is a coherent category of rides different from dark rides in general, or is discussed as such in reliable sources.

The problem at the moment is establishing notability. That source, along with the one on the article aren't enough to satisfy WP:GNG. It would be more appropriate for you to improve the article in the Draft namespace in case this is an example of WP:TOOSOON. Then it can be reviewed and submitted later. --The1337gamer (talk) 23:47, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Courtesy nomination on behalf of User:Hoestermann, who has attempted to have the page speedy deleted. The text of his request follows:

The "editors", particularly User:Roscelese, have changed the text to such an extent that it appears that certain ideological positions have been imposed on the original content. I am not a specific admirer of the subject, but I am well versed enough in Catholic theology, and the temperament of Fr. Harvey, to know that neither the Church, the memory of Fr. Harvey, nor the public at large, would be served by the words, expressions, and terms contained in the "edited" content. I am the sole author. By Wikipedia rules, i have the right to have the page deleted. Thank you. Hoestermann 22:09, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

At this time, I do not express an opinion on whether to keep or delete the article; my nomination is procedural to open up a discussion on whether the article merits retention, as Hoestermann feels it does not. —C.Fred (talk) 22:14, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

    • I am the only author. Others were merely "editors". None contributed additional or relevant material. They slashed a whole lot, more than 75% of the original content, then changed a few words here and there. No other person contributed original content. Review edit history and this assertion will be proven. Per criteria for speedy deletion, as the sole author, I have the right to request speedy deletion, see Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletionUser:Hoestermann (talk) 22:35, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Procedural note User:Hoestermann is, as far as I can tell, indeed the "only or substantially the only" author, and should he desire to do so, no AfD is needed, he may simply affix {{Db-g7}} to the page.
I think this would be a shame since the subject appears to be notable, and the article has taken considerable effort. Disagreements over content could be resolved at the talk page, and a sensible solution found. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 23:04, 5 July 2015 (UTC).
    • Just to summarize on certain objectionable edits on original article.
  1. Roscelese keeps reverting to LGBT language. The Catholic Church admits to no identity politics. Neither did Fr. Harvey. The Catholic Church uses the terms "homosexual" and "same-sex attraction." Of the two, Courage International prefers the latter. The principle behind this? That the person is not solely defined by his sexuality, but that he is a complex, independent creature made in the image and likeness of God, and deserving of care and affection just as all men and women are. (Before you get into a conniption on my usage of "he" and "his", remember that customary English orthography uses the masculine pronoun as the equivalent of the neuter.)
  2. There is no rule prohibiting the inclusion of journal articles in a Wikipedia page on a person. Roscelese keeps deleting the list of journal and scholarly articles written by Fr. Harvey. Why? Perhaps her comments about the "notability" of the subject reveals a certain prejudice. It's as if she wishes to obliterate the memory of Fr. Harvey, and his work on the moral theology of same-sex attraction. Is she the authority on the Catholic Church's pastoral work on people of same-sex attraction? If not, why does she presume to question the work of Fr. Harvey and of Courage International? Hoestermann 23:40, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Does not meet general notable guidelines or WP:WEB CutOffTies (talk) 07:57, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep

This should must be kept as of what are my views as this page is about a organization that's even registered under Non-profit org. section of Indian Societies act. So my only request is that, that there are more than a 100,000 people who know about this organization in India and support it too. So this page must be included in here for being quite a famous and money spending organization. There have been several articles published in newspapers about this organization too[1][2]

No one can now disagree the fact that this has no such significance or its not verified from trusted sources. RealmmbCon.Talk 08:59, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

(Find sources: "Tommy Kool" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

First, from the link and from the talk page post, Tommy Kool refers to a fictional character with the backstory described, not a real person. Second, even if the article were changed to reflect that, I do not believe that said fictional character is notable. There is one review of the production in the Orlando Sentinel, a mention in Timeout [1] but no further coverage. Agtx (talk) 20:27, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete This was originally tagged for speedy deletion as a hoax. On a search I found the Orlando Sentinel article so I concluded it was not a hoax and declined speedy, leaving open the possibility of AfD. I cited the reference and then trimmed away about two-thirds of the article - most of the outrageous/unbelievable/uncited biographical claims, as well as the TMI listing of all his podcasts. However, what remains IMO does not meet GNG either as an invented character or as the portrayer of that character. BTW the article was authored by the person himself. --MelanieN (talk) 20:51, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment I think notability is debatable, but there is some coverage that might qualify as reliable sources[2][3][4][5][6][7]. But I wonder about merging to plaster cast - I don't think this is really more notable than penis casts or casts of other body parts, and the main article could be expanded to be more useful rather than having a lot of little articles.

This biography fails to give worthwhile references. For a living person we have a high standard of referencing.

Simply a CV listing this entrepreneur's various companies he has co-founded during his career. The tiny amount of biographical info (and date of birth) is uncited. Lovgreen is quoted in some news sources, but the coverage listed here is about the companies, not him. Being named on a list as 55th most influential technology investor in 2011 isn't really going to push him over the WP:GNG threshold in my view. AME Info (which he co-founded in 1993) seems to be notable enough, and maybe a good course of action would be to redirect this article to that target.

  • Keep: Lack of attention does not equate to lack of notability, particularly for people who are deceased and their main career occurred before the age of the internet, particularly in the Third World. Looks like he was in a number of films and I don't think we should let lack of online or English-language sources provide grounds for deletion. I'd tread cautiously to be careful about our own possible pro-western bias. Montanabw(talk) 06:30, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for searching mazhar.dk; it's encouraging that the name appears in the credits for two films. When I nominated it, I made sure it was listed in WikiProject Pakistan's "Articles up for deletion" section. If you think a more prominent announcement or one targeted at a different group would be helpful, by all means make it.
I have to disagree with your assertion that "lack of attention does not equate to lack of notability." Notability in a nutshell is: "significant attention by the world at large and over a period of time." The attention certainly does not need to be online or in English, but notability requires verifiable evidence in some form. That is true no matter what time period or part of the world is involved. Worldbruce (talk) 08:07, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
My concern here is a pro-western bias; I think we need to hesitate to delete articles of this sort - those that are most likely to need someone who is close to the topic to assess notability because there simply will not be a lot of sources we can access from our 21st-century first world vantage point. (I recently helped salvage Hilda Plowright, for example). What I meant by "lack of attention" was "lack of editor attention" - in response to your "unreferenced for eight years" comment. I'm sympathetic to your position (I'm often the first to complain that some footballer who played one season of professional leagues in a small third world nation is deemed notable), but I think this is an area where we need to assume good faith that offline sources exist, particularly where this individual does have an extensive filmography, even if all are Pakistani films.

I've replaced most of the Amazon links -I've only kept one for the About the Author information and am working on finding a better source. However, I completely understand that that doesn't address other concerns about the article. Out of curiosity, would adding more information about the different projects she's engaged in to bring awareness to Sergeant Reckless help or would the article still seem not notable? Thank you.

Does not meet WP:NSONG or Wikipedia:Notability_(music)#Singles. Google search of "stash up opm -lyrics" doesn't return any sources. Wugapodes (talk) 01:13, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

What would be the point of deletion? It was a single from OPM's most successful album and was released in different formats worldwide. The music video received a lot of plays on Kerrang around the early 2000's. I would like to continue editing but I don't always have the time of day to consistently add to an article. You may as well just keep it, I mean exactly what harm is being caused by Stash Up having an article regardless of how much information is on it? I even uploaded the single's front cover which proves it was legit-ally released. It's not like it's an article about any other non-single from the Menace to Sobriety album is it? I've seen pages with less information than Stash Up that have been around for years without any sign of deletion. Take this into consideration please.NeverYouMind96 (talk) 01:28, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Topics of articles must be notable. Per Wikipedia:Notability_(music)#Singles: A single requires its own notability, and that notability is not inherited and requires independent evidence. That a single is an officially released recording by a notable musician or ensemble is not by itself reason for a standalone article. So just because it's from their most successful album does not mean that this single merits its own article. Per WP:NSONG, notability of a single is implied by:
  1. Ranking on a national sales chart
  2. Winning a significant award
  3. Versions of it have been released by multiple artists
None of those apply to this single.
While you may have worked hard on the article, I do not believe it is notable in its own right. Existence does not equal notability, and while other stuff exists, that does not mean that this article should exist (as maybe those articles shouldn't exist either).

No evidence of notability. The article topic is a single railroad car, which isn't presumptively notable. The Smithsonian article, the only real reference, is more concerned with private car ownership in general and has little to say about the Survivor.

WP:BLP of a radio programming consultant with no strong claim of notability under any of Wikipedia's inclusion rules, and no strong reliable sourcing to support it — other than his own self-published résumé on ZoomInfo, all of the "sourcing" here is to the published programming guides of radio stations he was working for, making them primary sources. In addition, there's a conflict of interest here, as the article was originally created by User:Markloud. As always, Wikipedia is not a place where anybody is entitled to have an article just because they exist — notability must be demonstrated via the use of reliable, independent sourcing, but that's lacking here.

Keep and possibly rename - central public transport station in an Australian capital city, which in my opinion automatically grants notability. It possibly has the significance of a central train station since Hobart has no trains or trams. Finally: the article name seems to be a poor choice. I'm not from Hobart, but a quick google suggests "Hobart Bus Mall" is the common name, while "Hobart City" is the official name on the timetables. So it should probably be renamed to one of them.

I tagged this for speedy deletion as A7 yesterday (after another user tagged it with a BLPPROD), but I removed both after sources were added to the article. However, of the seven links provided, two are YouTube videos, another link is another video, and of the other four sources provided, only one mentions Hunt (and it's not even a news report, but a podcast of some sort), the remaining three are about his group The UCLA Jerk Kings, and interestingly those three ←links do not mention him at all. A search was also inconclusive, with many false positives for either "HitTown" or "Michael Hunt". The coverage suggests notability for his group (which right now doesn't seem to have an article), but not for Hunt; I'm not opposed to the titlee being redirected to such an article if it was created.

Interestingly, there's a fictional DJ in the Grand Theft Auto series named Michael Hunt. He is the DJ of the in-game radio station Head Radio in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. Keep that in mind when trying to look for sources for this person. There also appears to be a murder suspect with the same name, so expect to see false positives when looking for sources. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 23:38, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment- I understand some of the points "Narutolovehinata5" is making, but I think with the two articles on NY Times and LA Times that include "UCLA Jerk Kings" sums up as a good source to the wiki article for Hunt. Like sure it doesn't state his name directly but you can't expect his name to just be singled out when he's in a group. For example the people who do know and are familiar with Hunt and the 4 others in the group, would instantly be amazed that they made it on such a popular article as individuals even though it says the groups name. Personally I think it checks out completely. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Easygoing3 (talkcontribs) 01:36, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
It seems possible that the UCLA Jerk Kings may be notable, but Hunt is not independently notable from them, for precisely what the creator mentioned above: the sources do not discuss Hunt but rather his group, and no coverage about Hunt himself can be provided so far.

  • Comment: The references have the subject quoted as a source of opinion -- very particular and political opinion. That doesn't attest to biographical notability.

She has two claims to fame, having notable parents and a notable uncle, and being a main subject in her mother's memoirs. This is inherently all a violation of the rules against inherited notability. There is no evidence that she is notable, and any need to cover her can be achieved in either the article on her father, or on the book that mentions her. She may have a major role in the book, but I think the article on the book is a much better place to discuss her. She was in her late 30s when she died, but the article says nothing about her doing anything in her life.John Pack Lambert (talk) 04:53, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Not notable. He won two small tournaments many years ago. Reliable sources have not written about him and thus by definition he is not notable. Handpolk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 05:24, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Non-notable individual lacking non-trivial secondary support. "References" consist of Primary sources and YouTube videos. reddogsix (talk) 03:42, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Regretfully delete, or at least cut back to a stub. The subject has one good interview, but the writer of this article has decided to pad it out with non-Notable and Original research. I wouldn't rule it out for the future, however. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 03:58, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment - Walters is a notable individual, especially because of his work on YouTube. His work as a solo artist is sufficient in that his music YouTube channel has well over 25 million views and 459 thousand subscribers, which has made him featured as a solo artist in various magazines, including a recent an article about him in Popstar!, in addition to the many different articles which have been written about him alone; he was also featured on the cover of Rock Sound Magazine by himself representing As It Is with no other members of his band pictured. Also, the majority of the sources in the article are secondary sources, including web articles from reputable sources and three printed journal articles. A few sources are pages automatically created by YouTube which are used for statistical purposes only. Additionally, only a few of the sources on the article are self-published by Walters, each of which is considered acceptable under Wikipedia guidelines because they are related only to him and mention no outside parties. Additionally, two of the references from YouTube are interviews with Walters, both of which are considered reliable sources under Wikipedia guidelines.~Peter Dzubay (talk) 03:59, 17 June 2015

  • Keep: I agree it appears there is a desperate attempt to make this notable by piling on more websites that have mentioned this artist. Most that are in external links are really 'iffy' to be here. See WP:ELPEREN. (two for youtube, one facebook, one twitter, one instagram and even tumblr (!!)) We have 36 sources for a barely 'start class' article. That being said, there are some notable press sources. I am a fan of Kerrang. Keep article and trim. I dislike seeing a row of citation numbers after statements. One good one is better than four non-notable sources... Fylbecatulous talk 13:45, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Wait, Fylbecatulous--you mean this article from Kerrang? But that's one single paragraph with an announcement of the As It Is tour. It offers no in-depth discussion of anything; one could argue that it's nothing but a quote with a headline. In addition, if it adds to notability for anything, it would be for the band, not for our subject. Drmies (talk) 22:17, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Eh...--for now, delete. I'll say "keep" if I see three or four decent, reliable sources that discuss the subject in any kind of depth. I tried looking for good sources, but stuff like this (three paragraphs in an alternative paper), this (two paragraphs and a thousand videos in an online magazine), this (an interview on a blog), and this (another interview on a blog, where the writer managed to write no more than four or five short sentences) just don't cut it. The rest of the plethora of links are just that, links--primary, unreliable, silly. I mean, what is this supposed to add to the article? And what do the six External Links, all to our subject, signify but "fan page"? Drmies (talk) 18:20, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep: Each source in the article is acceptable to cite for information, though a few may of them not add notability to Walters (but still provide valid information). Firstly, I'd like to point out that there are many sourced articles about Walters from online magazines and newspapers (such as Alternative Press and Kerrang, to name a few) in addition to three different printed journal articles (including articles in Rock Sound and Alternative Press) which are, with no doubt, reputable and acceptable. Each of the few social media sources in the article, though they are not preferred, are considered valid sources per WP:SELFSOURCE, and are used only for things such as his full name, birth date, and quotations. Each interview is an acceptable source per WP:Interviews. Also, the external links simply serve as links to Walters' social media because he has no official website. ~Peter Dzubay (talk) 4:01, 22 June 2015
    • No it is not. I asked for a few sources; you provide nothing. What you're basically feeding us (in this AfD and the reader of the article) is "it's verified so it should be in here"--including fan chatter like his own announcements about his own work. That it's "his" article so it should get a quotebox with some of his famous dictums is nonsense as well. Mind you, what you did in this edit does not mean the article should be deleted--it just means you show no sense whatsoever of editorial discretion. And let's face it: we're talking about someone who makes videos on YouTube and isn't written up, let alone discussed in significant depth, in reliable sources--it's just chatter in ezines, as far as I can tell, and your downplaying of the amount of "social" and self-sourced content is nothing but fluffery. Whether this article stays or goes, it will be trimmed. Drmies (talk) 22:04, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
    • There are many valid sources in the article. A few of these I mentioned above by publisher, which are very reputable and are good sources including three printed journal articles (Biddulph, Andy (May 2015). "Reviews". Rock Sound (199): 75., "On The Radar". Popstar! 16 (4): 90. July 2015., and Richman, Jesse (June 2015). "AP Recommends". Alternative Press 29 (323): 33.) and articles and interviews in reputable online sources (such as this, this and this); the "chatter in ezines" which you mention make up only a few of the sources and are articles which come from reputable publishers and contain the information which is being cited in the article. Also, OnRecordMag and TenEightyMag are valid news sources and not blogs, and other sources which you specifically mentioned, such as this, are legitimate and contain the information that they source in the article. I have taken your suggestions and removed the less reputable sources, sources less focused on Walters, and sources which were part of source lists after certain sentences. Also, to mention one of my edits and say that I "show no sense whatsoever of editorial discretion" is rather ridiculous considering that, first of all, in that edit I specifically explained why I did what I did while linking it to Wikipedia guidelines, and second of all, I only reworked two of the edits that had been made- I had not undone all of them. ~Peter Dzubay (talk) 23:36, 22 June 2015
      • Well, Wellz Street Journal is just another music blog, as is On Record. You are welcome to take this to WP:RSN and try to establish that we should accept these WordPress-generated blogs without clear editorial policies as reliable sources. The Alternative Press article you linked spends no more than half a sentence on our subject ("and Patty Walters will be doing vocals for the Sunrise Skater Kids songs"). So none of this adds up to notability. Sorry. Drmies (talk) 16:31, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
        • Per Wikipedia:Interviews, both of the interviews which you specifically mentioned are considered acceptable because of the articles' interviewee and subject; there is not any doubt that those interviews were legitimately with Walters. There are also other reliable interviews from which information is drawn such as this one with DSCVR. Also, whether or not articles such as the Alternative Press article that you mentioned go in-depth on Walters or not, the information in the Wikipedia article that is sourced with these is present in them; there is not a single claim made in Walters' article without a source that specifically supports it. In that example, the sentence in the article states that Walters is the vocalist of the satirical rock band Sunrise Skater Kids which that source specifically states. And, again, you are failing to acknowledge the journal articles that I've mentioned (Biddulph, Andy (May 2015). "Reviews". Rock Sound (199): 75., "On The Radar". Popstar! 16 (4): 90. July 2015., and Richman, Jesse (June 2015). "AP Recommends". Alternative Press 29 (323): 33.), some of the sources which establish notability. ~Peter Dzubay (talk)
          • This is an AfD. We're talking about notability here, not about whether something can be said to verify some statement or other. The three sources you just mentioned, as far as I can tell they're all about "As It Is" (AP, for instance, recommends As It Is, not Patty Walters), not about Patty Walters--and so this fails WP:BAND quite spectacularly (see the final note in that section). Drmies (talk) 20:51, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
            • Walters is a notable individual; he has done a lot in addition to being the frontman of As It Is. Most significantly, he is a well-established solo artist because of his work on Youtube. Through YouTube, he has generated 25 million views, 460 thousand subscribers, several viral videos, and a large following as an individual. His work as a solo artist has been caused him to be featured in various articles about him alone (such as this one and this one, and the majority of "On The Radar". Popstar! 16 (4): 90. July 2015., which, while also about As It Is, is focused mostly on Walters' work on YouTube). Additionally outside of As It Is, he is the vocalist in Sunrise Skater Kids and has done things such as collaborating with The Vamps and other YouTube celebrities to raise funds for cancer treatments and co-hosting Transmitter. He does significant work outside of As It Is; he does not fail WP:BAND. Also, while the Rock Sound and Alternative Press articles, unlike the Popstar! article, are focused more on the band than Patty, they specifically discuss his solo work, and this discussion does, in fact, count towards his notability. ~Peter Dzubay (talk)
              • Well, I could believe this, maybe, if you could give me one of these articles that say this. We've already looked at these two short paragraphs in a zine and these three sentences in an alt paper. We just don't accept stuff like that as significant discussion in reliable (preferably printed) sources. Everything you've provided so far has been either a. unreliable and non-notable; b. incredibly brief and uninformative; c. not about him; or d. all of them at the same time. Not a single article about him in a print journal or magazine? Strange. Or not: since I have come to believe even more strongly that this guy is not notable. Someone please write up As It Is and give the singer's YouTube career three sentences. Drmies (talk) 00:32, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
                • You keep referring back to the fact that those two references (out of many) are short which is irrelevant to this discussion; their length has nothing to do with the information that they serve to source in the article.
                • In response to your statements: a. There is not a single source in his article which is not accepted under Wikipedia guidelines; I have specifically explained why the ones which you mentioned above as unreliable are accepted. b. There are various sources which are in-depth, like the journal articles about Walters and his band, the online articles about Walters and his band, and the interviews, all of which are legitimate sources. Also whether or not an article is brief does not matter as long as it contains the information it is used as a reference for. c. The only article that was not directly related to him was about a band that he is a part of and has since been removed.
                • There are articles about him in the journals which I listed; they serve no less as points of notability because they also discuss a band which he is a part of. Additionally, Walters had a printed four page spread about him alone in Kerrang! issue 1564 (Hickie, James (15 April 2015). "Will the Real Patty Walters Please Speak Up?". Kerrang! (1564): 25.) which discusses his career and his life in-depth.
                • His YouTube career should not be compressed into "three sentences" and thrown into his band's article as you have suggested because it would be irrelevant; Walters' life outside of his band is just that: outside of his band. ~Peter Dzubay (talk)

Those cover the range of 2011-2015 aside from the coke can incident. She's been featured on public tv,radio and print.

User:Veggies You are fixating on that one event, above I show additional ones prior to that event for SEVERAL years. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 14:52, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
I found what appear to be two seperate times she was featured on public tv, [[22]] Is from New Hampshire Public Tv and [[23]] is from PBS. If you take the time they are both different times she has been featured for reasons of her faith. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 15:02, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
As I said, she isn't notable. She hasn't received substantial secondary-source coverage nor has she been recognized for some historic contribution. Not sure what your reasoning is, here. -- Veggies (talk) 15:44, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
The event at ISNA was a first for America thus it would be historic. I would like to ask specifically where the guidelines say that their impact has to be historic. I've shown she was featured in a tv series on national tv, I can show she has at least 10 articles above she is either featured in or used as an expert. She's been featured in print, radio, tv and online and not for a flash in the pan time, but 4+ years. A couple of those links above like the womens voices one and one other which title escapes me also describes her activites in reciting it "ground breaking" Hell in a Bucket (talk) 16:25, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

User:CorporateM thank you for that, I believe we actually have an account by that name in the article history whether that was her is anybodies guess.

Fails WP:NACTOR. He's had many small roles, but there are no reliable sources to base this article on, and he's never had a major role. The closest, I think, was a recurring role on a short-lived NBC soap opera. Pburka (talk) 20:52, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Incredibly weak keep. His part in the opening of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is really memorable, plus he got fifth billing in An Innocent Man. Throw in some minor roles in major films and starring roles in minor ones, and I think he may just barely squeak by. Then again, it wouldn't pain me too much if this was deleted.

  • Keep - by nothing encyclopaedic, do you mean it doesn't exist? I don't understand. There is South African heraldry, so this is encyclopaedic, but the majority of Africa is not encyclopaedic? Sub-Saharan Africa does not have flags, symbols, family crests, coats of arms? 103.27.227.205 (talk) 10:36, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Comment: "Heraldry" relates to the medieval European convention of nobility in the courts of Europe. Sub-Saharan Africa did not have European courts in the medieval and early Renaissance periods. That European families are there now is undoubtable, but that's "family crests and heraldry used by Europeans in Sub-Saharan Africa." If you mean flags and signals used by kings of any sort, then that's not "heraldry." Hithladaeus (talk) 02:26, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Heraldry is not only about "medieval European convention of nobility in the courts of Europe" and "medieval and early Renaissance periods" but is in use today. Even if it was introduced by European colonialists, it is still heraldry, is it not? What is this if not heraldry? [26] KiwikiKiWi (talk) 09:02, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Then your subject is just plain heraldry used by families in sub-Saharan Africa. That means you're forking either for a genealogical purpose or to redefine the concept to cover flags and tribal markings. The former is not allowed by policy, and the latter is an unattested neologism. Is there something unique about the way European families in the sub-Saharan region perform heraldry? Hithladaeus (talk) 13:35, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete: The article is a definition rather than an encyclopedia article, and it's an incorrect definition at that, as it defines heraldry as tribal and ethnic markings and flags. It otherwise suggests that coats of arms for sub-Saharan families are distinct from general coats of arms. No indications of notability, references lacking, and improper focus.

WP:BLP of a person who, as sad and unfortunate as the story is, has not been adequately referenced to enough reliable sourcing to earn a BLP on Wikipedia. There are just two sources here (#4 and #9) which pass muster as reliable sourcing — the other sources are the website of an activist campaign with an inherent conflict of interest, a discussion forum which doesn't count as a reliable source, a newspaper's editorial (which is not the same thing as neutral coverage in the news section), or primary source confirmation of the texts of relevant documents (e.g. citizenship law, human rights declarations) which fails to actually constitute coverage of him. Wikipedia does not exist as a public relations database to help activist groups publicize their campaigns, worthy though they may be — the level of reliable source coverage which is specifically about him is simply not sufficient to make him an appropriate encyclopedia topic (and even if better sourcing can actually be shown to exist, the article would still need to be significantly rewritten from where it is now.)

  • Budlakoti v Canada 2014 FC 855 2015 FCA 139 is notable because, as a decision of the Federal Court of Appeal, it satisfies criteria 2 of WP:CASES, because decisions of the Federal Court of Appeal are binding on the Federal Court: [27] [28]. Indeed, a case can only get to the Federal Court of Appeal if the judge of the lower court certifies that the case raises a question of general importance: [29]. A search for "Budlakoti v Canada" brings up a report of the case in the Law Times and coverage from Queen's University.
  • Comments. (1) Whether a newspaper's editorial is neutral does not affect its reliability. Reliable sources are not required to be neutral. Wikipedia is supposed to report relevant opinions as well as facts. (2) The CCLA reference in the article is a deadlink, but he is mentioned on their website here. (3) I am not sure what the nominator means by "an inherent conflict of interests". WP:COI is a behavioural guideline for editors. It has nothing to do with the independence or reliability of sources and has, therefore, no effect on notability. Independence is not neutrality. Simply having an opinion and expressing it publicly doesn't affect the independence of a source. I don't think that expressing it in a letter to the relevant minister affects it either, as I don't see much difference between expressing it there and expressing it in a newspaper for all to read. Representing him in a complaint to the UN Human Rights Commission might have an effect if it involves taking instructions from him, or the like, but it isn't "inherent". I can't see anything like that on the Amnesty International site.
  • Keep. I think the coverage in the news sources in the article, and in the fifty or so sources in GNews and Highbeam, and the other sources, satisfy GNG. Note that this is sustained coverage over a number of years. We might want to rework the article so that it is specifically about the dispute over his nationality. James500 (talk) 20:16, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Weak keep for the subject: It meets WP:BASIC; there is a lot of coverage. WP:BLP1E may apply; however the case (event) is notable: there is a lot of coverage of the case, it is ongoing, it has reached a national audience, and it has raised questions and significant opposition on the Canadian immigration system. Esquivalience t 02:43, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment: Strictly speaking, a case (as opposed to a trial) isn't an event. It can be defined as the written memorandum of a dispute. The thing known as the judgement or opinion (these things: [30] [31]) is actually a document or text. Likewise the precedent created by the decision is a rule of law, rather than an event. That is what is primarily meant when one speaks of "Budlakoti v Canada" or any other case. James500 (talk) 04:44, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Completing deletion nomination on behalf on an IP editor. The rationale given was

This article should be deleted for 2 reasons:

It lacks notability. Isa dreams (very clumsily named) do not appear to have any real significance to Muslims. A web search appears to show this issue has non-existent notability among Muslims. This article appears to be a case of Christian propagandists telling Muslims they have a belief that they did not know of! (A belief which also, handily, benefits these Christian propagandists.) The article seriously lacks reliable sources. Looking at the 'Further reading', 'References' and 'External links' sections, the sources used are unreliable, highly biased, Christian propagandist books or websites. The only reliable sources, John C. Lamoreaux, The Early Muslim Tradition of Dream Interpretation (Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 2002), 4 and The Concise Encyclopedia of Islam (New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1991), 335 (reference numbers 3 & 5, respectively) are used to cite information in the article that has nothing to do with Isa dreams themselves; rather they cite info that talks about dreams in Islam generally. Also, note that the vast majority of references lack page numbers.

This article is clearly the product of a Christian propagandist using Christian propagandist sources. It also lacks notability for anyone other than these Christian propagandists—who have themselves contrived this issue.--58.106.251.124 (talk) 02:15, 5 July 2015 (UTC) Reyk YO! 13:46, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep The article needs work and may rely too heavily on biased sources. That said I think there is enough RS coverage to pass GNG. Just because a subject may get more coverage from sources unfriendly to a given group or faith identity doesn't make it non-notable. Also sources from outside of a given religious tradition are not automatically unreliable, though I agree with the nom that some of these do look suspect. This looks like one part legitimate content dispute and one part WP:IDONTLIKEIT. I am going to tag it as needing improvement, but I think the topic exists and there is enough out there to warrant coverage in an article. -Ad Orientem (talk) 16:24, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

De-PRODed, non-notable band. Fails WP:GNG and WP:MUSICBIO. One notable subject who later played in two notable bands. They released two albums, neither of which seem to have met notability guidelines either. T&N is not a major label either. In the period, 1995–97, it was a small label. It did not reach prominence for another few years. The entry in The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music is a short paragraph. Not enough to confer notability. Walter Görlitz (talk) 13:18, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment. Ok, so explain to us why you didn't consider merging to the article on the band's notable member (a couple of lines and a mention of the album releases would probably suffice)? If the encylopedia entry is available online, could you link to it so that we can make up our own minds? --Michig (talk) 13:44, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment In reply to our brief exchange on your talk page prior to this AfD, I still fail to see where it fails WP:MUSICBIO. #5 makes no mention requiring an albums notability, nor allowing for ignoring works simply because they happened early in a label's history, nor that EPs don't count as albums. I would also like to read the entry for myself. I'm also not opposed to a merge to Ryan Clark's page if the consensus is that the entry as a whole fails. GreenRunner0 20:19, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
    • They released one album and one EP. Neither were themselves notable. The fact that they were on Tooth & Nail doesn't mean that they ear a bye onto Wikipedia. In th1 late 90s T&N was a small label. It was not until they signed a distribution deal with EMI CMG that they became big. I'm not opposed to merging all of the referenced content, but there is none, so what's to merge? Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:27, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
      • The verifiable/sourceable content. --Michig (talk) 21:48, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
      • Right, those are the facts but I'm saying the notability of the albums themselves is a non-point and the notability guidelines says nothing of taking the reputation of the label at the time into account. GreenRunner0 22:24, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
        • I can add it, but the key is that the music guidelines presume that GNG is met by the criteria. The criteria are not stand-alone "hall passes" that permit any article to stay if those criteria are met. Walter Görlitz (talk) 03:09, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Who studied at Humboldt? Zwerg Nase and of cause he defends "his" university. That's what we call POV. --Kolja21 (talk) 21:59, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Being an alumni does not make me blind to the obvious. To name it:
  • It is widely accepted that the Humboldt University is not just a successor, but the very same university that was called Frederick William University between 1828 and 1949. What is disputed is wether alumnis should be counted towards both Humboldt and Freie Universität.
  • It is astonishing to me that you defend your article, which is supposed to cover the early period of the university, but does so very poorly and a lot worse than the period is covered in Humboldt University of Berlin.
  • Having a seperate article on the Berlin Frederick William University confuses readers from the fact that there were three Frederick William Universities. The article name should lead to the disambiguation page, if anything. Zwerg Nase (talk) 22:06, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
It is obvious that you have no problems with the "fact" that famous Germans from Bismarck till Einstein are connected with your university (Humboldt; example: Hermann von Abich), on the other hand you are worrying about someone might confuse the article about the Frederick William University with the University of Bonn or the University of Wrocław. That's not very convincing. If you think the article is too short: Well feel free to add more information. Historically the Frederick William University is fare more important than HU or FU Berlin, so it should be easy to enlarge it (see also de:Liste der Rektoren der Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Berlin). --Kolja21 (talk) 23:22, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
@Kolja21: This is ridiculous. You change the German list you give yourself to have it point to the Freie Universität, while before your edit it was quite clear that that list also supported my thesis of continuity between FWU and HU... Unbelievable!! Zwerg Nase (talk) 14:12, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Maybe you better take a look into this book: Peschke, Elke-Barbara (2010). Rektoren und Präsidenten der Universität Unter den Linden (in German). Berlin. ISBN 978-3-9813135-8-1. , where all the presidents of the university are listed, from 1810 to 2010... Zwerg Nase (talk) 14:14, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
I know that the Liste der Rektoren der Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Berlin is not what you like to see, but feel free trying to delete it too. I haven't written it. The Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität will stay the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität even if it doesn't fit into the PR concept of the HU. And the book by Peschke? Who published it: "Der Präsident der Humboldt-Univ." What a surprise ;) --Kolja21 (talk) 18:54, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
I cannot understand why you say that self-description is of no importance in this matter. The difference between the HU and FU is, that the latter only wants to be associated with the good heritage of the FWU, namely the Nobel Prize winners. The HU takes full legal and moral succession to the Friedrich Wilhelm University, including its dark chapters in National Socialism. Also, you claim that the end of WWII, the seperation of the FU and the name change were a big caesura for the university and that makes it necessary to have seperate articles. Well, guess what, these three things did not occur at the same time. Cutting the history off at when the name change occured is the worst way to do it, since it is the least notable break of the three. Zwerg Nase (talk) 19:07, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
Where did I wrote that self-description is of no importance? What is important is that you are an alumni of Humboldt and that you are doing PR work for your university, giving missleading information like citing a book as an independent source withholding the basic bibliographic information. "All encyclopedic content on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view." We do not take the standpoint of one organization. Furthermore the article about the Frederick William University helps us to avoid historical inconsistencies. Deleting it you would force every author to link to your university. --Kolja21 (talk) 21:58, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Belén Fernández[edit]

(Find sources: "Belén Fernández" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

No indication that Fernández is notable. No reliable sources dicsuss her in any detail. The article is heavily based on Fernández' own writings and on opinion pieces. Huon (talk) 19:14, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Agreed. Fernandez does not meet standards for notability. The majority of references to her work are from small-ish blogs/sites with only a small readership and part of a small circle of freelance journalist types. Moreover, the article was originally created by the subject's mother and earlier versions were thus slanted in the extreme towards self-promotion. More recent versions have been less obvious, but retain a focus on adding entirely unnecessary praise for her work, and adding only a single critique from Pamela Geller in a way clearly designed to discount it's importance. It is clear that Fernande'z mother (User: Tower 1109) cannot hold a neutral position on this article, and she continues to edit in spite of this. Even if her edits were entirely neutral/acceptable, the basis of the article and the reason for its creation is discredited by her connection (not merely close, the closest possible!). Indeed, elsewhere she has noted how she has contacted Fernandez herself vis-a-vis this page (getting a picture). I can't see any real reason for this to remain. Certainly there are other pages for journalists, but they tend to have achieved something particularly notable. This does not apply here. 93.185.230.67 (talk) 20:09, 24 June 2015 (UTC) Anon 93.185.230.67 (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

  • (refactored) Keep Subject is an upcoming journalist who is already listed in WikiProject Women writers and American woman journalists. An influential publishing house brought out her second book to considerable acclaim by renowned left-wing thinkers and writers (see delete history for specifics) and recommended by Truthout and Gawker. The book has been assigned in university courses. She analyzes regularly for influential alternative news outlet, including Al-Jazeera and Middle East Eye, among others.Please let us focus on whether subject is notable. Tower1109 (talk) 20:23, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Strong Delete Simply writing a book is not a criterion for notability, if it were then wikipedia would have far more pages! Generally speaking, journalists have wikipedia pages when they have achieved something especially notable- not simply criticising another journalist in a book. This would include, for instance, a particularly influential story. Alternatively, people like Friedman are considered notable because of their notoriety if you will. Neither applies in this case. Moreover: please stop trying to distract from the fact that you are the mother of the subject of this article. It is not a minor issue, it is a massive one. Your continued efforts to maintain this page damage wikipedia's efforts towards neutrality. Moreover, the fact that you won't let this discussion go on without you shows the degree to which you cannot be trusted to be neutral. If are truly sure of your position (subject is notable, etc.) then please stop engaging in the debate- because you are mudding it with biased opinions- and hope that other people agree with your perspective. Also, 'second book' is misleading; first book was self-published. 93.185.230.67 (talk) 20:54, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Strong Delete Does not meet notability guidelinesfor either a journalist or author. Article is dependent upon questionable - and even biased - sources. Many are simply opinion pieces and blogs. There is a clear conflict of interest with the main contributor to this article, an editor who has made no other contributions to the encyclopedia. ScrpIronIV 21:16, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • (refactored) Strong Keep After hours of more reading up on Wiki standards and protocols, I remain convinced that the subject meets WP:Basic: "People are presumed notable if they have received significant coverage in multiple published[4] secondary sources that are reliable, intellectually independent of each other,[5] and independent of the subject.[6]". Subject's work has been lauded by a number of sources and cited as exemplary journalism; some are referenced in the page, others were deleted to accommodate critiques of "self-promotion." Please see history of edits. As for the "editor who has made no other contributions to the encyclopedia," let us heed the the standard of "please don't bite the newbie."

  • Strong Delete As per wikipedia cited above, this article contains principally only blog links, opinion pieces, and/or lower quality platforms for reference material. Tower 1109 should note the wording of the notability criteria: 'reliable' (blogs/opinion pieces/niche leftists sites are not reliable per se) and 'intellectually independent' (the only sources here are from a small group of left-wing leaning sites/bloggers/etc. that are naturally inclined to cite this kind of material occasionally), as well as 'independent of the subject' (many of these sites have connections with the author in one way or another). There is no evidence of real notability- simply one commercially published book. Please note, again, that Tower1109 is the mother of the subject of the article (note her language: "subject's work has been *lauded*" and other similar biases in her edits. It is relevant that the only page she has edited on wikipedia refers to her daughter. 146.185.34.131 (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

Delete. Their only notability appears to be in relation to Andrew Wakefield, well-known for his fraudulent research paper. If this is true, it's sufficient to include the school in Wakefield's article and, indeed, it is already mentioned there. Note that there may be other reasons why this school is notable, even though no reasons are asserted at this time in the article.

Merge back into 2015 in sports – I think Rockies77 is very much justified in trying to manage the length of the 2015 in sports article, and I'm more than happy to support the continued creation of spin-out articles for individual sports or obviously related classes of sport; but I agree with the nominator that splitting out the ball sports from the non-ball sports is a very unnatural way to do that.

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.

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)

  • Delete per nom. There is also the issue of the template on this article. Matthew Ferguson (talk) 07:38, 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. Boghog (talk) 08:52, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
I don't think the navbox-template is an issue. It is a one-off composed navbox in this article, not a separate page in template-space. So it's like a table added to the article. Once this AfD is decided whichever way, no separate action is needed for the navbox, it follows the article. -DePiep (talk) 18:49, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
The names of the component {{Glucocorticoidics}}, {{Mineralocorticoidics}}, {{Progestogenics}} navboxes are definitely an issue but outside the scope of this AfD. The consensus arrived at this discussion is that these templates should be renamed or merged with {{Glucocorticoids}}, {{Mineralocorticoids}}, and {{Progestogens}} respectively. I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Boghog (talk) 19:47, 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)

  • Delete as per User:Winkelvi reasoning — Preceding unsigned comment added by Givenunion (talkcontribs) 12:11, 5 July 2015‎ (UTC)
  • Delete per WP:BIO1E and per WP:NOTNEWS, which states "Even when an event is notable, individuals involved in it may not be. Unless news coverage of an individual goes beyond the context of a single event, our coverage of that individual should be limited to the article about that event, in proportion to their importance to the overall topic." Patrick isn't noted for anything on his own beyond dying within two days of birth, and notability is not inherited; being a Kennedy does not by itself make someone notable. Snuggums (talk / edits) 14:21, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. If he had indeed been stillborn this might be a different debate, but he was not - as this source and many others (eg. [39][40][41]) his premature livebirth and subsequent death "inspired aggressive research into the cause and treatment of RDS and served as a catalyst in the development of regionalized neonatal intensive care". His appearance in medical literature continues to this day, and indicates a significance beyond simply who his parents were. Nikkimaria (talk) 14:39, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • That doesn't really make him exempt from WP:BIO1E since that is all based on one event Snuggums (talk / edits) 15:00, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Two events: widely covered birth, widely covered subsequent death. But even if we wish to interpret this as a single event, it would still be appropriate to keep this article, per the guidance regarding a "person famous for only one event [who] may be more widely known than the event itself" in BIO1E. We have multiple sources detailing this individual's short life and the impact of his death, more than enough to pass GNG. Nikkimaria (talk) 16:40, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • WP:NOTNEWS says "Even when an event is notable, individuals involved in it may not be." Snuggums (talk / edits) 16:49, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

This will be the fifth time we've resolved here that the subject is notable by WIkipedia standards. Wikipedia would in no way be improved by the removal of this article.- Nunh-huh 15:30, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

  • 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 only two third-party 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.

  • Delete I declined speedy deletion; the two versions do not seem to me to be a copy-paste or copyvio. The article says the name of a game amongst Scottish school children, in which two of them are seated on the ground, and holding a stick between them, endeavour each of them to draw the other up from the sitting posture. The heaviest in the posterior wins. The source says a game in which two people seated on the ground facing one another with feet pressed against feet, grasp a stick between them and tug so that one tries to pull the other to his feet. Those two versions are certainly different enough for Wikipedia's purposes. However, I favor deletion per this AfD process; the article is nothing more than a dictionary definition, with a single source and no indication that the game is notable. In a search I found nothing but Wikipedia mirrors. --MelanieN (talk) 19:16, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

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.
