Project Code of conduct
Rescuesquad - No text.png
  • Please note that WikiProject Article Rescue Squadron is a Wikiproject intended to improve the encyclopedia. The project is not about casting !votes, nor about vote-stacking.
  • Focus on improving content. For example, when working on an article listed for rescue, try to qualify topic notability by adding reliable-source references with significant coverage of the topic. Edit the content to address specific concerns raised in the AfD discussion.
  • Show the light. If you comment in an AfD discussion, try to describe points in the nomination that have been corrected. Note any remaining deficiencies (e.g. lack of organization, structural problems, lack of balance, etc.). Base comments upon Wikipedia's deletion policy. If an article has been rewritten, you may place a comment in the AfD as a courtesy to assist the closing admin in determining which article version others were referring to.

This is a list and discussion of Wikipedia content for rescue consideration. When posting here, please be sure to:

  • First familiarize yourself with Wikipedia's guidelines for topic notability and identifying reliable sources.
  • Include specific rationale why the article/content should be retained on Wikipedia, and any ideas to improve the content. (You can also !vote to delete an article at its deletion discussion because you think it is untenable in its present state, and still list it here in the hope that another editor will find a way to improve it and save it.)
  • Sign posts with four tildes ~~~~.
  • Place the {{subst:rescue list|~~~~}} template in Articles for deletion discussions, to notify editors about the listing here. The tag can be placed below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.

The following templates can be used for articles listed here:

  • *{{Find sources|Article name}} - Adds source search options
  • *{{lagafd|Article name}} - Adds relevant links
  • *{{lagafd|Article name|Article name (2nd nomination)}} - Likewise but for page nominated twice
  • *{{lagafd|Article name|Article name (3rd nomination)}} - Likewise but for page nominated 3 times
  • *{{lagafd|Article name|Article name (Nth nomination)}} - Likewise but for page nominated N ≥ 4 times

Adewale Demehin[edit]

Outside sources have been provided to back up the notability of this subject in at least one event notable event, even though the subject has taken part in other major roles in stage plays between 2001 and 2009, but are not yet verifiable because they were not publicized on the internet. It falls on all falls with the three white mice case presented in WP:SCNR The page has received significant coverage in at least one verifiable source. And deserves to remain on wikipedia with backing from [[[WP:BLP1E]]. However insignificant the topic may be to the nominator, WP:SCNR shows it still deserves to have a stand alone page on Wikipedia Davioseki (talk) 10:12, 20 January 2018 (UTC)}}

Deneva Cagigas[edit]

In addition to the secondary sources already in the article, there are other articles about this player in Mexico's top-division football/soccer league available via a Google News search to support WP:GNG. WP:FOOTY does not include the majority of top-division women's leagues around the world -- only 1 on my last check. Hmlarson (talk) 00:53, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

The National Memo[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The National Memo Questing of "trivial mentions" in WP:RSs. 7&6=thirteen () 23:31, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

List of mayors of Traverse City, Michigan[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of mayors of Traverse City, Michigan Broad policy question. List that inclues 150 years of mayors being eliminated as "non notable." WP:Not paper. 7&6=thirteen () 13:44, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Kept Adjunct article to main article! 7&6=thirteen () 21:58, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Jack Schlossberg[edit]

This is the 6th AfD plus two DRVs. -- GreenC 14:54, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

Language Creation Society[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Language Creation Society (2nd nomination) Notability. Alleged WP:COI. Acerbic discussion. Counting merger discussions, a previous deletion, etc., looks closer to a 4th nomination. Sourcing was poorly done. I've fixed references and links. 7&6=thirteen () 13:35, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Bob Howard (academic)[edit]

An Australian political scientist, nominated as non-notable. Nomination statement also alleges "Part of a series of spam articles". Just relisted for the third round—this is it. Apparently it is difficult to find journal articles the subject authored (perhaps because his name is common?). Keep advocacy is mostly based on special notability guideline WP:ACADEMIC; rebuttals by deletion advocates question whether his academic roles qualify for WP:ACADEMIC. If the common-name problem can be overcome, source searching might help with the WP:ACADEMIC case, as well as with a possible WP:GNG case. —Syrenka V (talk) 23:24, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Kept (no consensus). —Syrenka V (talk) 01:15, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Long face syndrome[edit]

A medical/dental syndrome. Article is very short and sparsely referenced, although it has been improved since nomination. —Syrenka V (talk) 22:35, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

No compliance with WP:BEFORE.
Added substantial text and many references.
Closed as Snow keep 7&6=thirteen () 15:00, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Joseph G. Clemons[edit]

A war hero of the USA for his role in the Battle of Pork Chop Hill in the Korean War; winner of the Distinguished Service Cross for his role in the battle the Battle of Triangle Hill; portrayed by Gregory Peck in the 1959 movie Pork Chop Hill. Nominated nevertheless as failing WP:SOLDIER (N.B.: an essay section, not a guideline). One keep !voter so far says he passes clause 4 of WP:SOLDIER, "Played an important role in a significant military event such as a major battle or campaign"; nominator disputes this on the ground that his command was too low-level. Preliminary source searching suggests that he likely meets WP:GNG whether or not he meets WP:SOLDIER, but the Wikipedia article itself is poorly sourced at present; incorporating more sources would help. —Syrenka V (talk) 09:59, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
