Extremely poorly sourced BLP and from the text is barely marginally notable. Standards have moved on since this was created and I think we should remove this. Spartaz Humbug! 06:51, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Weak keep - notability is not temporary. I found a few references to him as a "phenom" and "star" though I don't know much about poker unfortunately. It seems like if he'd already $2.5M by 2009 at that age he's probably pretty good. [5], [6], [7] МандичкаYO 😜 07:42, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Weak delete - Did well enough to make money from poker in the 2000's, but not actually that notable as a poker player, and I can see no notability outside of poker.

I couldn't establish that this meets WP:NOTABILITY. Searches turned up information on the town and no evidence of notability for this sub-set of the clan. It seems it can also be spelt Babuzai. I considered a merge or redirect to Yusufzai (Pashtun tribe), where it is not mentioned, but as this entire sub-stub is unreferenced and unverified, I thought it best not to; no evidence that they are worth a mention/redirect. Babozai, Mardan (the town) should be moved to this page - clear WP:PRIMARYTOPIC and the vast majority of the incoming links to this page were meant for the twon, resolving them now.

    • Let's review:
      • [17] coverage of innovative advertising by major British newspaper, The Telegraph
      • article about company winning an award by Junior Magazine (magazine). The article seems like a PR piece, it's short, and full of marketing speak ("an award-winning and affordable collection of ", "the first, and only, baby & children’s skincare range to make the following claims: dermatologically & paediatrician tested and approved and suitable for newborns & upwards", etc.) . The magazine describes itself as a " glossy, family lifestyle website" that went out of print in 2013 but maintains an online presence. By 2014, when it covered CF, it was only an online portal. Seems like a niche, non-RS source, and written like a PR/marketing/ad piece.
      • [18] a companion to the above, JM interviews DF founder. Outside being regional/niche, it is is also not about the company, but it's founder, and mentions the company only in passing.
      • [19] a profile of the company founder in a regional UK portal (Hampshire Life, www.hampshire-life.co.uk). Outside being regional/niche, it is is also not about the company, but it's founder, and mentions the company only in passing.
      • [20] An ad for the products, in the form of an "article", appearing in "THE WIDEST DISTRIBUTED COMPLIMENTARY LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE IN SUSSEX". Another niche (distributed "throughout the county"), PR coverage, an ad masquerading for an article.
      • [21] Seems like a Czech equivalent of those British PR niche pieces. In fact, I think it's a shop.
      • [22] Another PR "buy this product". It's an ad for a single product, "Childs Farm Top-To-Toe Cleaning Kit, £9.95 www.childsfarm.com", in the form of profile of favorite products selected for the British edition of the Vogue_(magazine). It does not discuss the company, it is just fawning over one of their products.
      • [23] Similar coverage, a paragraph inviting people to buy "Bath and hair products for kids, from £4.69, from Childs Farm". Published in a blog/lifestyle section of a major British newspaper, The Guardian, but of dubious reliability. Anyway, it's coverage of the company's product, not the company.
    • So, User:Wikimandia, I'd appreciate if you'd tell me how those sources pass GNG/Company notability for independent, major (non-niche, non-regional, non-passing) coverage. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:34, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
      • Because I don't agree with your assessment of these refs secretly being ads, PR pieces, blah blah blah. The Q&As with her are primarily about the company and how it got started, and you might want to head on over to WP:CORP because your standard requiring "major (non-niche, non-regional)" sources is not in the guideline at all, and, in fact, appears to be something you've invented to entertain us. The requirement for sources are that they be reliable sources unrelated to the organization or product. There is nothing that says coverage in a niche publication is not acceptable (especially if you have niche product, duh!); nor that local or regional publications cannot count as a reliable source. Per WP:AUD, you can't have an article with only local sources, but that's not the case with this article. So that's how I say these sources pass GNG. Also the Czech one is not a store but a women's portal and magazine; they sell a few products but they do not sell Childs Farm products. Hopefully that satisfies your questions. МандичкаYO 😜 04:39, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
        • I could argue that you are confusing GNG and CORP, but let's not split words or guidelines. And yes, I should have said clearly non-RS, rather than niche. Now, please explain which references here satisfy, in your view, our policies. "This article satisfies WP:CORP criteria...". But if you think it does because it has coverage in reliable sources, we have to discuss the said sources. You haven't' so far, outside of arguing that the interview with the CEO is not passing coverage. Even if I agree (and I am not sure I do), I do not believe that Junior Magazine (magazine) is reliable; it seems WP:QUESTIONABLE ("promotional in nature"). Ditto for all other sources here; they seem to fail RS. Because, in simple terms, they are PR spam. Look at those publications. They are never critical of the products they cover; they get paid to produce article-like ads. The Sussex magazine is even given away for free (and don't tell me you think the companies which front the funds do so without expecting a quid pro quo in exchange). Let me repeat: having reviewed the sources, I find them unreliable (poor fact checking, likely COI in the form of positive, paid-for coverage), and focusing on the company in passing (even you haven't presented any in-depth sources about it, outside the PR-like piece, not too long btw, in the form of [24]). Wikipedia is not Yellow Pages. This company hasn't attracted any serious coverage (it paid for some niche PR article-likes features). And short coverage of the company's marketing campaign in a reliable newspaper does not change the situation. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:04, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

First of all, this article is not very easy to understand and searches to the best of my ability found nothing good. It appears both Marathi and Polish Wikis have what appear to be references but I'm not a speaker of either language so I'm not sure how good those sources are or if they're relevant at all.

  • Keep I have identified additional sources on this personage. I also have a sense there are even more sources in Maratha and maybe Hindi, but have no knowledge of either language. A google search showed echos of such sources. We need much more work, especially on the movment that he is said to have founded. This movement still exists today, or at least existed past the founding of the current government in India in the 1940s.

Is she really notable? I think no; fails WP:MUSBIO. A singer with only 2-3 years of activity, who ”found success covering numerous songs on YouTube” it's not very impressive. There are thousands of such a ”singers” around the world. She has only 4 singles (two in 2015 and two in 2012) and one album, no one of them entered in charts. She's a promising singer, but at this moment most probbaly she is not enough notable for an article. XXN, 18:04, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

(Find sources: "Alexander Telalim" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

I prodded it with the following rationale: "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. " It was deprodded by creator, User:Elena Elk, with the following comment "deleting "proposal deletion" and "orphan". Reason: I think that it is enough editing articles. Also added: Links to external sources, cross-references to other sections of Wikipedia, other minor edits." I am afraid I am still not convinved by the refs present; the ones I can read seem to mention him in passing, or be not very reliable (some minor galleries selling his art, a site on tripod, etc.). If any sources are reliable and discuss him in depth, please list them here. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 01:51, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

* Comment User:Elena Elk I am the author of this article and I give my arguments in more expanded form.

The artist in question - Alexander Telalim - was born in Ukraine, now living in Bulgaria. The main evidence of its importance published in Bulgarian, Russian and Ukrainian languages ​​(given in descending order).
Assuming that such references to the English part of Wikipedia is not too important and understandable to the reader, I did not include them. It certainly was my mistake, for which I apologize and ask opponents to take into account the factor of my small experience in this matter. It was my first article for the English Wikipedia. Thanks to the just remark of Piotrus, it has allowed me to improve the text.

Now about the links, which were included.
1. Two link to site of artist. One link is a page with biography, second - to main page. The main page is empty, it really bad link, but I seems that I would put it as a link to artist website. The last of them can be delete.
2. A group of links from USA galleries. I selected the links to Gallery at the Consulate, because it gives one a some official status also. The exhibition at The Ukrainian National Museum in USA and an article about this exibition is a examples of so links. Of course, modern gallery is often carried out with the sale, so finding exactly an impartial source, such as the British Museum, it would be difficult.
Another link with short biography of artist was used as English text from source other than the author's site.
3. Then three links to known private galleries in Bulgaria and Russia were used as a links satisfying the both parameters: English text and famous modern gallery in these countries.
4. Next 6 links are a references to the radio and television programs, as well as articles in the official media in Bulgaria, which were dedicated to the artist Alexander Telalim. I selected the only official state television and radio channels in Bulgaria (eg "Bulgarian National Radio" or "National Bulgarian TV"), as their significance seems to me a priority.
Unfortunately, the Internet in Ukraine was a very weak during youth Alexander Telalim. Good links are hard to find now and there are no English texts, so I not used those ones. But it's is may be done easily, if necessary.
5. In Eastern Europe there is another indication of the importance of artists - is the inclusion of the so-called "National Union of Artists." Selection to pass is fairly strict rules and Alexander Telalim has long been a member of the Bulgarian Union of Artists. (This is indicated).
6. Then I found link to one of the more significant exhibitions. It was The "Masters of Watercolours" in St. Petersburg in 2015 (with a Exibition participants catalogue).
7. Artist has a more than 60 solo exhibitions around the world, including the world-famous galleries in the US, EU and Japan. It was another argument, which allowed me to believe his fame enough for inclusion in Wikipedia.
(added) 8.The last links are the russian articles from different sites

Finally, if there are suspicions of my personal interest, I would like to just dismiss them. I am interested in South Russian school of art, the center of which is located in Odessa (modern Ukraine). I intend to write a series of articles about her artists, but the work is progressing too slow because of my employment elsewhere.
Not more than a few days ago, I posted an article about the Grekov Odessa Art school, today or tomorrow I will write about another representative of this school, the artist Yuri Salko, who became famous as a new talent in the field of icons in the Byzantine style.
I understand that the "myself" link is not a good argument for Wikipedia, but please note that my native language - Russian, Bulgarian and Ukrainian, so I can find information about these people in short order.
If my links are not insufficient, I will put all its my forces to find more serious, however, I would like to understand what could be more serious than the government media conducted an interviews, lasting more than an hour? If this is not proof of the popularity and significance, what is the evidence?

P.S. I watched many articles about the artists from Eastern Europe and Russia, and I find that the more links there are simply not available or unreliable. I would like to understand why this article is motivated by a desire to remove it? As a rule, if the article does not have reliable information, it is asked to provide. However, the repeated removal requirement is puzzling, and I would like to understand the reason for such a drastic requirement? Elena Elk (talk) 04:57, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep - I see several refs that are not in passing, including [25] and [26] with Bulgarian National Radio; interviews [27], [28], lengthy profile/appearance on Bulgarian television program [29], and exhibition at the Ukrainian National Museum [30]. I don't know if there are more out there; these are the ones already listed on the article, but not mentioned in your summary of sources when you created this AfD. I'm also curious why this article should be deleted. МандичкаYO 😜 05:37, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

    • Google hits are not enough. Which of those are not WP:QUESTIONABLE? National Radio seems best, but problematic; it wasn't a program about him by some scholars or critics; those were interviews with him. As such, those have problems with WP:RS: he is a primary source about himself, after all. One could argue that the mere fact of being invited establishes notability, but this is, as far as I know, not supported by policy, and I an hesitant to support it (the interviews where, btw, how long? 1 minute? Half an hour?). All other unreliable sources aside (galleries selling or otherwise benefiting from his works are not independent sources; just like book publishers/bookstores cannot be sufficient sources for a book's notability). Granted, WP:ARTIST does state that if his work " has been a substantial part of a significant exhibition", but then we need to discuss what is a significant exhibition (I'd say one that is notable, i.e. has attracted major coverage, which is not what I see for the exhibitions listed in this article). Finally, the claim that membership in Union of Bulgarian Artists (an article of dubious notability itself as written, through a quick search shows it to be notable otherwise) is anything extra-ordinary needs to be backed up with sources. Is this a reputable organizations with selective membership? I am not seeing it; and as such I am not ready to accept the fact that membership in it conveys notability. In the end, keep in mind not all artists are notable, and nothing I see here suggests to me that this person is ready to be in an encyclopedia. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:18, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Dude these are not "Google hits" but coverage of him and not a single one is from a gallery either, so I really don't what you're talking about. I can understand not everybody can read Cyrillic but you can at least bother to use Google Translate. The only one that is not from an independent news source is this one [37] from the City of Chicago's Sister Cities partnership website (as Kyiv is a sister city), and that's an announcement from the National Museum of Ukraine. And it's even in English. I have never read anywhere or heard anyone suggest that a Q&A or an interview (written or live) does not count as coverage toward GNG. A Q&A done with a RS is not considered a primary source except for the purpose of specific content/claim that would need to be subject to additional verification (such as claim of record company profits etc). You state merely being invited to be featured in an interview with a RS does not count toward GNG as this is "not supported by policy." ORLY? What policy is that? Because it's not in any Wikipedia policy, and I'm sorry to say I don't recognize WP:THINGSPIOTRIMAGINES as policy :-( Considering Q&A format interviews are very common and are frequently referenced, surely this specific rule you think exists would be in the guideline, somewhere.... And by "the interviews where" do you mean where can you find the radio interview??? Instructions: 1) open your eyes (please do not skip this step) 2) go to the page [[38]] 3) look at the page (also important) 4) click the triangle PLAY button on the big media player on the page. МандичкаYO 😜 07:28, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Comment The duration of the interview in these sources varies from half an hour to two hours.
On membership in the Union of Artists of Bulgaria written here:
http://www.sbhart.com/bg/members/letter/%D0%A2/p/20#letter
or here: http://www.sbhart.com/en/members/letter/T/p/20#letter
I can to agree that this source may be given also, but I did not see that in other articles about the artists of Eastern Europe.
The book, which was cited in the references, not just a result of publication of his works, but the catalog of one of the most famous exhibition of masters of watercolors in the world. In my opinion, is really proof of the author's fame. Beginners or unknown masters there just are not included.
In some cases I cite and link to the both: exhibition and reviews. I described it in detail above. I can increase the number of some links to 10-20 pieces, but I have to take reviews in Bulgarian, Ukrainian and Russian languages, which is not too good for the English Wikipedia.
With all due respect to the search engines, especially Google, I want to note that this is not the best argument for the encyclopedia, also should take into account that the search should be conducted in the national languages and national offices of Google.
It seems a not serious argument that you do not know about the complexity of admission to the National Artists Union in Eastern Europe. If you do not have this information, it can be read anywhere, in Google or Wikipedia, or on cite http://www.sbhart.com/en, or about history of art at former socialist countries.
I will summarize. I put links to long radio and TV shows with the artist, and in the presence of Bulgarian critics and art historians. I put links and list important exhibitions outside Bulgaria.
I bring proof of adoption of the selective union of artists.
I quote the article, which tells about the artist in large galleries.
I cite references to articles published on the Internet, completely dedicated to the work of the artist.
What do I need more?
Which exhibition?
If I give you a long list of links to reviews on the Bulgarian or Russian, it will be the argument of fame?
The number of personal exhibitions is one of the most important arguments the significance of the artist. I chose of Telalim first because it is very large. Why is it that no argument? Articles is appearing in each(!) exibition in the national languages.
Finally, I repeat my question - why require removal article, but not correction?

No real indication of notability as defined by WP:MUSBIO or WP:BIO; passing mention in a tabloid article hardly rises to the standards set by those policies.

  • Comment. There is precedent for lists of software/products, but the qualification for them is almost always that they pass notability GNG enough to merit an article and/or that they've received enough coverage to at least warrant being mentioned on the list. This specific list seems to set its own rules for inclusion, one of which is that it is "actively maintained & supported." This has never been something that would disqualify something from a list on Wikipedia and it's quite common for lists to include software that is no longer maintained or supported. That aside, we have to look at whether or not there's really anything here that would warrant a list. Offhand I'm not seeing anything and the qualifications for inclusion seem to be fairly loose, given that Leapster is on the list. I suppose that since it does have an OS and it's aimed towards children it could technically belong on the list, but I don't know that it's really an OS in the same way that some of the others (like Edubuntu) are OS systems. This gives off the impression that the only two real qualifications for the list is that the product has to be aimed at children and that it has to be able to run electronically.

School fails WP:ORG and most likely WP:GNG too. There is virtually no coverage of the school in detail in WP:RS. What little coverage in local meida is not in detail. The only national coverage was a mention of a teacher in an article on the top 100 teachers in USA Today. Coverage of a teacher at the school does not equate to coverage of the school. It had been redirected to the local school district for nearly two years til an editor came along today and restored it. Per school article guidelines and WP:SCHOOLOUTCOMES, re-establishing the redirect is a perfectly acceptable outcome for me. John from Idegon (talk) 00:02, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

The topic "Politics of light rail in North America" is -- potentially notable. But the article is a mess, it has been a mess for years, and no one seems interested in improving it.

At one time the article was much longer -- however that excised material was unreferenced original research and editorializing.

In 2013 I recommended the article be merged or redirected back to Light rail in North America. Discussion here. That is still my preferred outcome. Geo Swan (talk) 04:43, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
