We have a little three-liner here supported by three references: one requires subscription, the second one is a dead link, and the third is in a language I have no knowledge about - could it be Telugo? I tried to find sources about subject, but I fail. Just half an hour ago, a YouTube video [1] which I assume is about subject, was uploaded. Can anybody help with establish notability here?

Book series with exactly one independent source [3] which is more about the author than the books, and I can't find any other sources. The article claims that the rights have been sold in many countries and that there's a Paramount movie in the making; I do find a couple of sources from a year ago talking about that, but it seems much WP:TOSOON to create an article based on that. There is an article about the author, Anna Todd, and this article could possible be changed into a redirect there, but to be honest I'm not sure there's sufficient notability for that article to stay, either. bonadea contributions talk 18:24, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

WP:BLP of a person notable primarily as an as yet unelected candidate in a forthcoming election, sourced entirely to a YouTube video of a TEDx talk and press releases, announcing her wins of non-notable internal university student body awards, on the websites of the universities she was educated at — these are all primary sources which cannot confer notability, and no reliable source coverage has been shown. This is effectively just a campaign brochure, which demonstrates no reason why she would have qualified for a Wikipedia article before being named as an electoral candidate — but if you cannot adequately demonstrate that, then the candidate does not become notable enough for a Wikipedia article until they win the election. Delete, without prejudice against recreation on October 19 if she wins her seat. Bearcat (talk) 16:37, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

WP:BLP of a person notable as the mayor of a town of 25K — which is not large enough to confer automatic inclusion rights on a mayor under WP:NPOL — and as an as yet unelected candidate in a future election — which is not a claim of notability that gets a person into Wikipedia if they haven't already passed an inclusion rule for some other reason. The sourcing here fails to adequately demonstrate that he's more notable than the norm for a small-town mayor (e.g. by virtue of having become well-known outside of his local area), so there's no strong basis for an exemption from the 50K-minimum test for mayors, and candidates do not get articles just for being candidates — so he'll absolutely be eligible for an article if he wins his seat on October 19, but nothing here adequately demonstrates that he's earned an article today. Delete, without prejudice against recreation in October if he wins. Bearcat (talk) 16:28, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment Don't assume it's a COI account just because of the content of the main user page. Back when the page was created, it wasn't uncommon for new editors to create drafts in their main user page. Since the main user page isn't supposed to be used for drafts, I've moved the page to User:Pumpkinsong/Rob Watts. By all rights I should request a WP:HISTMERGE but since nobody else edited it prior to it being copied into the main encyclopedia, it's not a legal necessity. I did put a "userspace draft" template on the now-moved draft. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 20:29, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
    • Comment I forgot to say that the other articles this user created are also clues to a COI.

WP:BLP of a writer with no strong claim to passing WP:AUTHOR, and sourced almost entirely to Reddit posts and Twitter tweets with very little reliable source coverage: the only sources here that even begin to pass muster are a Harvard Political Review article which namechecks his existence a single time while failing to be about him, and a blurb on Vocativ which is about him but isn't nearly substantive enough to get a person into Wikipedia if it's the article's only legitimate source.

    Comment - Hi Davidwr - I definitely would consider it. And I considered it before marking the article for AfD (rather thah prod). I just don't think this obscure now-defunct area code merits a redirect. But not saying I couldn't be persuaded. Onel5969 TT me 21:02, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Redirect and keep history or Delete, I don't really care which. Redirects are cheap but absent this page it's doubtful anyone would bother to create one, and absent keeping this page's history I can't think of a good reason to create one. On the other hand, if one were created, I would oppose any deletion whose only grounds were "unneeded redirect" on the grounds that "redirects are cheap, if someone thought of a good reason to create one and its presence isn't harmful, keep it." On the other hand, if a redirect were created and someone nominated it for deletion showing that the redirect was confusing people into thinking that this historic area code was more important than other uses of the same number, I might be persuaded to delete, re-target, or create a disambiguation page. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 21:18, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep There are plenty of sources for this article and I believe that some of the previously deleted content should be restored since it doesn't really make any sense to delete an entire field of research that predates the term "gerontology" by three decades. 930310 (talk) 22:27, 27 August 2015 (UTC) 930310 (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.
  • Delete/merge to Gerontology or Demography or Longevity. In an abundance of disclosure, I should point out that the article took its current form after I took the knife to it a few months ago (starting here [4]) to remove unreferenced material (much of which probably shouldn't be included even if it had references) and fancruft. After that there's almost nothing left. While certainly many disciplines are interested in good data on lifespans (and those with long ones), this article tries to make it sound like checking people's ages is an extensive discipline with its own literature, which it isn't. The best proof of that is that there was an editor here, now blocked, who certainly would have added cites to such literature if it existed. EEng (talk) 23:14, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep and improve It's fair to say that some of the prior material was indeed "fancruft", but not the material on the field of research itself. This is a field which has been in existence for at least 140 years (William Thoms establishing the basic premise of the need for age verification in the 1870s). Plenty of sources exist and the article can be expanded, which I will. And although this is arguably a "sub-field", Wikipedia can have articles on sub-fields. -- Ollie231213 (talk) 00:57, 28 August 2015 (UTC) Ollie231213 (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.
That someone wrote a book 140 years ago on the problems of verifying ages doesn't make that a field, any more than Galton writing about intelligence [5] made that a field (or at least a notable one). What makes it a notable field is people talking about about it as a field. Where are those sources? EEng (talk) 01:49, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
There is more than one book to cover this area as a field; in fact, William Thom's (the writer of the 140-year-old book) proposals were adopted by the Institute of Actuaries (based in London) in the 1890s, led by Thomas Emley Young at the time. This same Mr. Young wrote another book on the topic, which inspired others to continue writing about the topic for many more decades to come; even the New York Times covered this topic in 1909 [6], as evidenced by one of the sources in what has been left of the original Wikipedia entry [7]. Lastly, the existence of science conferences on the topic of extreme longevity tracking, such as [8], proves that the area of extreme longevity tracking certainly is a sub-field within demography (sharing overlap with the field of gerontology), instead of just a hobby. Fiskje88 (talk) 21:09, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Longevity (how old people get) is a notable topic, but the question here is whether verifying how old a given individual is is a distinct, notable subject. The subject of Young's book is longevity; he naturally debunks famous frauds and emphasizes the importance of skepticism, but that's not the subject of the book. The scientific conference whose program you link is the "10th Supercentenarian Conference"; it's about old people and how old they get, not the activity of figuring out how old they are (though of course there are items on the program related to that). The NYT piece is about trends in longevity, and mentions recent improvements in the quality of longevity statistics, but it's about longevity, not the process of keeping track of who's really old. EEng (talk) 21:54, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep and improve The extreme longeivty tracking is an interesting field of science, that may interest many Wikipedia users. There are plenty of international organizations, that study the phenomena, International Database on Longevity, Gerontology Research Group, Guinness World Records and other. Also, it can easily be learned from the article's history, that it has been severly affected by destructive edits done by user EEng, who now strongly approves the deletion/merging of the article. That is a proof in itself, that the user's edits were not justified and the user himself never acted in good faith. We must oppose the individual bias and work together to improve the stand alone article. There are many sources, which refer to scientific papers. Considering this, I am more than certain, that the article can be improved. Of course, it should be kept as stand-alone article. White Eaglet (talk) 09:06, 28 August 2015 (UTC) White Eaglet (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.
  • Keep and improve Admittedly the article wasn't properly sourced in the past, yet there are enough reliable sources of note - see my additions and suggestions earlier in this discussion, for instance - to improve the Wikipedia entry and justify its existence. Fiskje88 (talk) 18:46, 28 August 2015 (UTC) Fiskje88 (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.
  • Delete/merge to Longevity or Gerontology as this is clearly a subset of these areas and not a discipline in and of itself. There's nothing here to this subject beyond "recording the ages of the very old is part of studying population demographics. Validating the ages of the very old by verifying birth and death dates is important in record-keeping and studies because people lie about their age, and validating hard to do because most countries didn't have mandatory birth records until fairly recently." If this was a recognised field of study it would make sense to have its own article but since it isn't and there's next to nothing there, it's better included as part of another article (perhaps replacing Longevity#Long-lived_individuals?) Ca2james (talk) 20:01, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep - The meet may be 6 years away, but just like an Olympic bid city, the location has gone through tha process and a site has been named. The article will only continue to grow, there is no chance of the article losing significance over time. Even if the bid is somehow revoked in the future, a disastrous scenario for Eugene, it will be major news having already gone to this point. This is permanently notable as of April 2015 when the site was named. Trackinfo (talk) 11:58, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep. Additional sources to those in the article are: [9] [10] [11] [12]. This will undoubtedly receive a large amount of news coverage in the future. If it's on the edge currently, it is overly bureaucratic to delete it only to bring it back in a few months or a year. Either way, I think it passes WP:GNG now based on substantial coverage in national reliable sources such as the NY Times. ~ RobTalk 13:50, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep @WilliamJE:, I frankly couldn't tell whether you meant to be serious. Such events take years of planning, and the expenditure of vast sums of public money. And yet you can always count on some over-ethusiastic deletionist arguing for their deletion, improperly claiming the authority of WP:CRYSTAL. Even if an incredible disaster made it impossible for Eugene to host these games, and no other nation stepped forward, these games would still be worthy of an article.

Whilst I agree with what you are saying, why would a reliable news outlet report on another outlet that reports on the same thing as they do? Hazgrid (talk) 09:48, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Why would a news outlet quote what another news outlet stated, saying that they both agree? Who knows, answer that yourself. We're not here to discuss journalism practices. That question has nothing to do with this AfD. @Other Reviewing Admin, its obvious Hazgrid doesn't understand Wikipedia's notability requirement. Take this into account when reviewing this case. -CerealKillerYum (talk) 10:02, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
haha @Hazgrid, you misinterpreted the quotation mark. To merit a wikipedia entry, a company will need coverage from news outlets that are reliable and notable. For it takes notability for an organization to merit a Wikipedia entry and for news outlets are organizations, we know that news outlets that have their own Wikipedia entry are reliable and notable. Therefore, get coverage on news outlets that have Wikipedia entries. If you get coverage from a news outlet that don't have its own Wikipedia entry, the outlet's notability would be up for dispute (unless you're a seasoned editor and know what you're doing, but you're not) and if its viewed that the coverage was on unreliable news outlets, the page can get deleted.

  • Comment Some wikipedia history for our nominator. AFD is not intended for copy editing and article improvement. Even stubs, like this one, represent an considerable amount of work. Articles on notable topics should never be deleted just because, as the excellent essay WP:Arguments to Avoid says WP:IDONTLIKEIT.

    The wikipedia is well over a decade old, and the criteria for inclusion are stricter now. When this article was started ten years ago we didn't even have the {{cite}} templates and the <ref></ref> html tag available for our references. Of the 400,000 articles that existed in 2005, when this article was written, there are lots of articles that have been kept up to date. And there are some, that, when given only a cursory glance, might look to someone impatient, like they could never measure up. But our deletion policy still says that deletion should be based on the notability of the topic, not on some contributor's opinion of the current state of the article. The wikipedia is not well served by deleting adequate articles on unquestionably notable topics, when they met the inclusion criteria current, when they were written, and merely need an update.

    Our nominator wrote: "The only other reliable source I can find is this" -- and then offers a fine reference they found themselves. Our nominator's time would have been far better spent incorporating that reference into this article. Geo Swan (talk) 12:37, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

    • @Geo Swan: I don't see anything that indicates the nominator suggests it be deleted "just because" or because it needs work. Nom is obviously looking at the notability of the article as a whole, which is why they went out to look for other sources. Whether that was a thorough job is another question. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 15:00, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

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

This article is about some fringe concept of... I don't know what. The 'superdeterminism' concept is not, despite the article's claims, something that was discussed by John S. Bell, and opposed by Anton Zeilinger (they are talking about the 'normal' determinism) it is rather something only found in fringe/crank journals like the The General Science Journal (relativity deniers) and International Journal of Fundamental Physical Sciences, some obscure Pakistani journal of physics, whose website is setup to make it look like a legitimate journal of science through their own version of an 'impact factor', not the Thomson Reuters one. This is a non-notable fringe claim, which I think originates with some Manual S. Morales, backed by no/few independent reliable sources.

This also seems related to a recent edit war on the Higgs boson article by an WP:SPA (see [15]). An WP:SPI may also be in order. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 03:25, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Per below, I'm open to a redirect to Bell's theorem#Metaphysical aspects or Determinism#With free will, but we really don't have enough for a full article here. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 13:08, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Note: This debate has been included in the list of Science-related deletion discussions. Toffanin (talk) 10:17, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep This concept is regularly discussed in the scientific discourse surrounding Bell's theorem. See for example most of the recent work by 't Hooft.TR 10:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Comment.   Well, looking in "The Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics" by 't Hooft I see the word "superdeterminism" once in the abstract and then 1+3 times in Sect. 14.3 "Superdeterminism and Conspiracy" starting with:
"Superdeterminism may be defined to imply that not only all physical phenomena are declared to be direct consequences of physical laws that do not leave anything anywhere to chance (which we refer to as ‘determinism’), but it also emphasises that the observers themselves behave in accordance with the same laws. They also cannot perform any whimsical act without any cause in the near past as well as in the distant past. By itself, this statement is so obvious that little discussion would be required to justify it, but what makes it more special is that it makes a difference."
The rest of his text uses the term "determinism" (occurs about 120 times). Thus I am not convinced that he makes "superdeterminism" notable. Still, his position may well be noted in "Determinism" and "Bell's theorem", possibly mentioning the word "superdeterminism" there (as rather a synonym to "hard determinism" treated now in Determinism#With free will). (Really, it is mentioned already in Bell's theorem#Metaphysical aspects.) Boris Tsirelson (talk) 12:39, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
TR, that's regular determinism. If the laws of physics are deterministic, so is our behaviour. This certainly doesn't warrant its own article, and can be treated in Determinism or in Free will. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 13:03, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
"Superdeterminism" is a form of regular determinism. It mainly emphasizes that even if observers A and B are at a spacelike separation their choices may not be fully independent because they share a common (region of their) causal past. Bell's theorem (and the scientific method in general) assumes that A and B can make independent choices. 't Hooft's cellular automaton interpretation avoids Bell's theorem in exactly this way.TR 21:18, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - "Superdeterminism" seems to be used here as a kind of buzzword for concepts that are already described in other pages, as mentioned above, and I agree that this should be deleted. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 15:17, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete "fringe concept of I don't know what" sounds right. The article is written like an essay and does not cover a coherent, notable topic. Opabinia regalis (talk) 19:55, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment AfDs should be decided based on policy. "Superdeterminism" is covered in multiple reliable source from independent (and well respected) authors: [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] This is clearly enough to establish notability under WP:GNG.TR 21:08, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Canadian actress. I came across this hoping to create a dab and moving this to Helen King (actress). But having looked for sources, I haven't been able to find any for WP:GNG or WP:ENT. The sole article reference is her IMDB page. Fuebaey (talk) 23:42, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment: I'm kind of torn on this one. On one hand, there aren't a lot of sources. On the other, she has had three major speaking gigs, one in Potatoes and Dragons (for 78 episodes), one as a major role in the Prince of Persia game, and one in Magi-Nation (6 episodes, although the part in question is for Shimmer, which was 3 episodes). You're not really going to find a lot of sources for a voice actor since they're rarely the focus of media coverage, so in these cases we have to look at the parts to see if the media was notable and if the answer is yes, if the role/part was major enough. I'm leaning towards sort of a weak keep or a redirect to Potatoes and Dragons. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 04:21, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

WP:BLP of a musician with no strong claim to passing WP:NMUSIC. The article is written in the first person, cites a single brief namecheck in a book, and rests his notability on having very briefly been in a notable band — however, NMUSIC permits a musician whose notability is band-dependent to have a separate standalone article only if they can be reliably sourced as having independent notability for something independent of the band (such as solo albums). And looking at the band's article, his membership was extremely brief at best — the founding member that Mallinson claims to have replaced was actually replaced within two weeks by a permanent new member who wasn't Mallinson, so even if Mallinson's claim is true he was in the band for a grand total of 10-14 days at most. And all of this occurred before the band had even recorded its first album, meaning they weren't even notable yet. NMUSIC normally recommends a redirect to the band, but I don't think that's appropriate in this case, as his membership in the band isn't even hinted at in the band's article. Delete.

  • Oppose per rationale given by another editor at the last nomination, "The logic in the nomination is flawed. The two articles serve different purposes and the discography article omits most song titles" and my comment at the Snoop Dogg nomination by the same editor which reads, "The nominator has given his opinion why the whole of the "List of songs recorded by Foo" may be considered for deletion but has failed to explain why the Snoop Dogg list should be singled out. If the nominator thinks that the category should be deleted he should nominate accordingly, singling out certain artists according to personal taste does not benefit Wikipedia." --Richhoncho (talk) 18:12, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment Koala15, when do you plan on nominating "List of songs..." articles like this one or this one for deletion? Or is there a reason that they should receive different treatment? Azealia911 talk 17:24, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment Well for some artists a list like this may make sense, but for this group everything here is basically covered in their discography. Koala15 (talk) 18:23, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
How exactly did you come to that conclusion? Here's some figures.
Ariana Grande discography mentions 29 of the entries in the article.
Meaning that 15 songs from the "List of songs" article are not covered in the discography.
Meaning that 64 songs from the "List of songs" article are not covered in the discography.
If one of the two articles were to be AfD'd, it would surely be the Ariana Grande list, no? Do you still stand by your claim that this article is redundant to the discography? Strong keep'.Azealia911 talk 19:10, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Azealia911. I think we should also note that Koala15's nominations past and present all relate to rappers. --Richhoncho (talk) 09:20, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Richhoncho I'm not sure if the genre of the artists brought to AfD has anything to do with it, but they all seem to be very basic, messy, unsourced lists. I sense that having them deleted is an easy cleanup, a way of sweeping them under the rug and getting them out of the way without actually working on them if you get what I mean. Azealia911 talk 11:20, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Azealia911. I am not sure I would call any of the articles basic or messy, but I concur they are unreferenced, but that's not grounds for deletion either. If the nominator wishes to point out I have made an error in my accusation I would apologise and retract my "rapper" comment, although to be fair one of the nominations was for a "hiphop artist". --Richhoncho (talk) 08:59, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

@Koala15:, could you please give an indication as to weather you wish to proceed with this AfD? If you withdraw, it can speedily be closed as nobody else has !voted delete.

  • Note from 1st AFD closer - Incase anyone's confused with the first AFD closure - I originally closed based on this AFD (I'm sure I closed about 3 or 4 from that nominator relating to these I think)... It made sense at the time anyway Face-grin.svg. –Davey2010Talk 00:52, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

If you ask me whether WP:OTHERSTUFF exists, I'll answer yes. But, your two examples have a reference appended to each song, and the unlinked entries do not grossly outnumber the blue-linked songs. Kraxler (talk) 01:54, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Ah, the ever over-used otherstuffexists, Wikipedia's answer to Godwin's law. An articles current state should not be viable reasoning for deletion, but its potential. Is the article a dire mess? Completely. Does it have the potential to be a complete, referenced list? Yes. Azealia911 talk 02:01, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Please see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of songs recorded by Yelawolf for what happens to unsourced FANCRUFT/LISTCRUFT. Kraxler (talk) 02:07, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── If by "what happens", you mean the opinion of you and two other editors at a relatively quiet AfD, then yes ok, there's one example of what happened. But until you can clearly show me that poor referencing is a cause for deletion, and not just a way of sweeping clutter under the rug as opposed to working on said article, I'm not buying it. As of the current listed examples of reasons for deletion, I'm not seeing any that this list applies to. Take note of number 6 too, "Articles that cannot possibly be attributed to reliable sources" not "Articles that are currently not attributed to reliable sources". If anything, an easy referencing method would be the respective albums's listed in the articles' liner notes or AllMusic credits. As for you calling fancruft, preposterous. Someone making a comprehensive "List of songs" article for an artist is most definitely not cruft. I just sourced 35+ entries in the list. Will resume when I wake up.

Inadequately sourced WP:BLP of a person notable primarily as the victim of a chimpanzee attack. This title has existed for six years as a redirect to our article about the chimpanzee (Travis (chimpanzee)), until being converted into a standalone biography yesterday — but per WP:BLP1E, we do not keep standalone articles about people who are notable for a single event. This impacts on the medical and personal privacy rights of a low-profile private citizen, as there's very little that actually can be written about her as a separate topic from the incident. And three references is not enough to claim that she warrants any kind of special treatment different from the way we would ordinarily handle any other comparable situation. I see that the article contains empty section headers for "Medical advances", "Legal battles" and "Legislative involvement" — if there really is anything encyclopedia-worthy that can be written about those things, substantively enough that it would constitute WP:UNDUE weight in the chimp's bio, then the appropriate solution would be an article titled and formatted as an incident article about the event (e.g. at 2009 chimpanzee attack, or some similar title which makes it clear that the event is the article's main topic). A full-on standalone biography of the victim, however, is not appropriate. Revert back to a redirect, without prejudice against the future creation of an incident article. Bearcat (talk) 15:11, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Charla Nash has participated in media interviews, legal battles, testimony to Congress, and several other noteworthy events since the 2009 attack. I would support the reformatting of the article to no longer include it in BLP, I just don't think all this information regarding Charla Nash and her life since the attack belongs on the Travis (chimpanzee) page. Unlike the owner Sandy Herold, who has done nothing of note that was not -directly- regarding the attack. Her legal battles with the State and her legislative actions, as well as her involvement in medical research are of particular note. Those are actions she took that go beyond the specific event, and merit inclusion somewhere besides as a footnote to the attack on the bio of the chimp.

  • Keep. The article reads like an advertisement, prompting me to tag it as such. But that is strictly a content issue. At AfD, all we consider is notability. Under WP:GNG, notability is demonstrated by multiple reliable independent secondary sources discussing the subject in detail. Those sources clearly exist, as demonstrated by the Business Standard and Quartz articles. Msnicki (talk) 20:53, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Msnicki Note: All the newspaper and related articles cannot be considered to be reliable one; contents published such as press-releases...reviews is not considered to be the reliable one. Even if we consider these two sources as reliable (which is not that effective ) is not sufficient to establish notability. See WP:ORGDEPTH which states dept coverage in multiple reliable sources is needed. — CutestPenguinHangout 14:48, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
"Multiple" is generally interpreted as at least two good sources at AfD. The Business Standard and Quartz articles satisfy the requirement. That makes this one a keep. Msnicki (talk) 16:44, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Msnicki You are right but press releases and reviews is not general cited or you can say is not treated as good /reliable references even if they are from great sources.

To wit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(people) requires " significant coverage in multiple published[4] secondary sources that are reliable, intellectually independent of each other,[5] and independent of the subject.[6]"

BJU's Alumni Magazine "Voice of the Alumni" is not a secondary source, nor is BJU's own internet page about the net grace investigation, nor is "Biblical Viewpoint", a journal apparently published by BJU. None of these three are independent of the subject nor of each other. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Benjaminady (talkcontribs) 10:48, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

  • keep Searching on google.vn for "Hoa hậu phu nhân người Việt thế giới" shows a lot of news coverage on Vietnamese newspapers. The newspapers have multiple articles about the pageant, which suggests extensive coverage. Some of these newspapers are based in Viet Nam and refer to the pageant as "The American Vietnamese beauty pageant" which suggests the pageant has global notability as well.

Biography

Stephen Marchionda is an American virtuoso classical guitar performer.

Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and raised in Denver, Colorado Stephen Marchionda began piano lessons at an early age. He later turned to the classical guitar after hearing Sabicas in performance. He was a protégé of famed pedagogue Ricardo Iznaola at the University of Denver and is a graduate of Yale University's School of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music. He was affiliated with the Royal Academy of Music in London in 1991, where he received classes with the celebrated guitarist Julian Bream.

Stephen Marchionda has been featured at London's Wigmore Hall and New York City's Carnegie Hall (Aranjuez Series). Elsewhere in the USA and Europe he has been invited to perform at the Kennedy Center, Frick Collection, Aspen and Cheltenham Music Festivals; Lincoln Center, Trinity and Saint Paul Churches in New York, BBC Radio 3, Radio Nacional de España, National Public Radio, El Gran Teatro del Liceo de Barcelona and the Royal Opera House and many other important venues. He has given recitals throughout South America, including the Biblioteca Luis Ángel Arango in Bogota, Colombia.

Marchionda’s recent recordings on the MDG (Musikproduktion Dabringhaus und Grimm) in Germany of his transcriptions of Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti and piano works by Isaac Albéniz, have received exceptional attention and plaudits. In 2005 in a special collaboration with the tenor Philip Langridge, he gave the premiere recording of Nicholas Maw’s masterpiece "Music of Memory" for solo guitar, and his "Six Interiors for Tenor and Guitar“, (Chandos Records). An award winning recording that also included music of Benjamin Britten’s "Nocturnal, after John Dowland for Solo Guitar" and "Songs from the Chinese”. This recording was awarded recording of the month by both Gramophone Magazine and BBC Music Magazine. Other recordings appeared on the ASV Label, London.

Being strongly committed to performing and promoting contemporary music, Marchionda has premiered many new works, including those written for him by several internationally renowned composers, including Sir Harrison Birtwistle's “Today Too” and Nicholas Maw's “Tango from Sophie’s Choice“. Active in concertos with orchestra and chamber music, Marchionda has appeared in special collaborations in concert and recordings with famed British tenor Philip Langridge, mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager, the London Sinfonietta, Kurt Streit, Sebastian Bell amongst others. Recently exploring a popular mix with cantaoras (flamenco singer) Rocío Márquez and Marina Heredia.

Stephen Marchionda has won many international prizes including the Guitar Foundation of America's International Solo, the Segovia International, and the Manuel de Falla. Holding both American and Italian citizenships, Marchionda has had homes in New York City, London, Granada and currently lives in Barcelona, Spain.

  • This doesn't have anything to do with preliminary hearing, nor (unsurprisingly) is this state-specific term mentioned there. If New Jersey evidence law existed, it might potentially be merged there, or perhaps it should be refactored into an article on the State v. Driver case, but it's clearly a meaningful term and concept in NJ law and the complaints about the lack of "independent" sources are misplaced if not wholly inaccurate, given that the primary sources are clearly authoritative. Not to mention the fact that there are no doubt NJ legal practice guides that discuss it, as would be the case with any comparable legal doctrine in any state. I'm having trouble searching online (in part because the New Jersey Law Journal is behind a paywall), but any NJ practitioner, anyone with a Westlaw account, or access to a law library with NJ materials should be able to confirm that. postdlf (talk) 22:47, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep and Move - I like Postdlf's suggestion to refactored into an article on the State v. Driver case. I'm not convinced that the hearing itself is notable; however, it seems that the underlying case is, given that it added a new procedural step to New Jersey criminal law. It might make sense to move it to Driver v. State, and fashion it more as an article on the case itself (which would probably be pretty much a stub, to start, but that's okay), with details about the Driver hearing as a section, "further developments", or something like that. This is something like what happened with Giglio material, which was revised and moved to Giglio v. United States as a result of this AFD. TJRC (talk) 00:04, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Basically original research with a questionable source (islamic-laws.com), blogspot and various Wikipedia links including a userpage. My searches (both this name and the "popular known" one) found absolutely nothing good aside from this which seems to be for someone else. Granted, if there are any good sources, they're non-English and offline and even a search with the Arabic name found nothing so with all that said, I'm not seeing a possibility of improvement and convincement of keeping; having a final look at the history, I noticed Faizhaider improved it (and I would ping him but it seems he's not very active) but aside from that, there hasn't been anything else.

  • Keep on the basis of the problems caused by cultural bias. I have no real way of judging the importance, but the presumption is that the author of multiple boos and Principal of a College is notable. The evidence though weak is sufficient if there is no contrary material. Iwould take a much more positive approach to this and similar articles if I could read the necessary languages, or even if it were feasible to use the various search engines and machine translators, but they do not work in this area.
There are two approaches that seem possible: one is to insist on roughly the same evidence that we would for English or American people, and defer the rest until we have sufficient qualified people to write the articles properly. The other is to accept notability that would seem to be similar to that which we accept from the areas we know better. At present, I'm willing to do this, except for BLPs.

  • Redirect - to (former) parent company Invensys. Software article of unclear notability, lacking significant RS coverage. A search turned up no significant WP:RS coverage, but as the company was formed in the 1980s, there may be offline print articles. I think Invensys is a better redirect target than Schneider Electric because it already has a section on Avantis, and while Invensys seems to have been a significant division of Avantis, Schneider is a huge multinational of which the former Invensys software is a negligible part.

  • Comment. Not a hoax. Appears to be a rarely-used spelling; more common is Anbu Kodi Makkal. I've found references to "anbukkodi" as a symbol used by devotees of Ayya Vaikundar, such as page 47 of this document: "A global structure called “samattuva sangham” was created with a saffron flag with a white jwala (‘anbukkodi’) in the middle." It's unclear how much the term is actually used, however, so ideally an expert on religion in India may be able to offer some advice on whether to keep the article (which has very little real content) or to redirect to Ayyavazhi.

Categories[edit]

August 29[edit]

NEW NOMINATIONS[edit]

Category:Garage door opener manufacturers[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Delete. only two entries. 203.173.186.163 (talk) 20:50, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Tulsa Roughnecks players[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Rename. So it will not be confused with Category:Tulsa Roughnecks (1993–2000) players or Category:Tulsa Roughnecks FC players Joeykai (talk) 20:19, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Get a Life (TV series)[edit]

Nominator's rationale: There's the show itself, a list of episodes and the theme song (which really has nothing to do with the show). The other two articles are inspired by the show. Everything here can be summed up in the article for the show. Fuddle (talk) 20:17, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Hyperlocal[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Rename. "Hyperlocal" is an adjective, not a noun — something can be a "hyperlocal" website, or a "hyperlocal" newspaper, or "hyperlocal" content, but nothing is ever just "a hyperlocal" as a common-nouned thing in and of itself — so the category needs to properly specify hyperlocal what. (And that's if we even need it at all, which I'm not entirely convinced that we do.) Definitely needs renaming, though I'm entirely amenable if somebody's got a deletion argument to offer instead. Bearcat (talk) 18:41, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Hare Krishnas[edit]

Nominator's rationale: upmerge per WP:SMALLCAT, only one or two articles for each of these categories. Ultimately the proposed mergers for these nationalities makes the by-nationality parent category also pretty small (only the American, British/English and Indian categories will stay as a subcategory, according to this proposal) so that the by-nationality category can be upmerged too. Marcocapelle (talk) 09:38, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Vaishnavites by nationality[edit]

Nominator's rationale: upmerge per WP:SMALLCAT, unnecessary category layer, as it only contains two child categories. Marcocapelle (talk) 09:16, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Shaivites[edit]

Nominator's rationale: upmerge/delete per WP:SMALLCAT, there is only one nationality with a significant amount of Shaivites, namely the Indian nationality, for other nationalities a separate Shaivite category is not meaningful. By the way, there is no need to upmerge the country categories to the second parent Category:Shaivites because all the articles are already in Category:Saivite religious leaders (or in Category:Shaivite religious leaders after speedy rename). Marcocapelle (talk) 07:40, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Imelda[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Delete. Created by Imeldific (talk · contribs) an WP:SPA account who only edits Imelda Marcos topics; by pagemove of Category:Imelda Marcos. The pagemove was reverted, but the category remains. The main article at Imelda is not about Imelda Marcos, and the user has been campaigning to make "Imelda" mean Imelda Marcos on various article talk pages A/B without success. -- 67.70.32.190 (talk) 05:07, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete. A surname is not a meaningful category.  Sandstein  07:29, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete. Our article on the given name "Imelda" lists 15 people, a populated place, an asteroid, an opera, a film character, a genus of butterflies, a film and a song which have that name — and there's been no credible reason given why Ms. Marcos would qualify as WP:PRIMARYTOPIC for it. Bearcat (talk) 20:40, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Cities that have hosted a FIFA World Cup final match[edit]

Category:Literature[edit]

Nominator's rationale: there is great confusion with "Category:Publications by ..."; see also literary works redirect (literature) fgnievinski (talk) 00:27, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • "Literature" is a general topic category which is meant as a broad overview of the subject; it contains very general articles like literary adaptation, foreword and proverb, and is not meant to directly contain individual works of literature — there are already more specific categories for those, such as Category:Novels, Category:Poems and on and so forth. Category:Literary works could potentially be created as a new category to sit between Category:Literature and those other categories, if desired, but that would be a subcategory of Category:Literature rather than a replacement for it — Category:Literature has many relevant and legitimate subtopics (writers, literary festivals, literary awards, etc.) that are not works, and would lose a necessary parent category if this were renamed as proposed. Oppose renaming. Bearcat (talk) 20:51, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Creative works[edit]

Nominator's rationale: as per redirect creative work (intellectual work) fgnievinski (talk) 00:24, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Aviation history of Ukraine[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Per WP:SMALLCAT and the spirit of WP:C1, an empty category. Conceptually this category is fine but there is only one article in this category and it doesn't belong there. (Igor Sikorsky built aircraft after he moved to Russia and founded Sikorsky Aircraft after he moved to the U.S.; he is already categorized as from Ukraine in multiple categories.)

Category:Educational institutions of the Suriname Province of the Moravian Church[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Per WP:SMALLCAT and the spirit of WP:C1, an empty category. There are no articles about Moravian schools in Suriname. None! There is currently one article in the category, but it doesn't belong. This category has been around for 7 years so the growth potential here seems pretty low.RevelationDirect (talk) 00:16, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

This might be better suited for that talk page, but that page should either a) be split into a few different lists or b) purged of the "non-notable" items and only contain items that have articles. -- Tavix (talk) 20:43, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Post-2009 Pacific hurricane seasons[edit]

The following is an archived discussion concerning one or more redirects. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on an appropriate discussion page (such as the redirect's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this section.
The result of the discussion was speedy delete all as uncontroversial housekeeping. – Juliancolton | Talk 19:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

On-line drama addiction[edit]

I suppose you could say some trolls have this, but it's not a commonly used phrase; it doesn't appear at all at the target article. BDD (talk) 18:48, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

To anarchize[edit]

Unclear what this is supposed to be referring to. BDD (talk) 18:46, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Alternative versions of Thor[edit]

This is a similar problem of unnecessary disambiguation to that below. Again, I think these should go to a title like Thor in popular culture, but lacking that, I'm not sure what to do with these. Neither Thor#Modern influence nor Norse mythology in popular culture seem like very good retargeting options. --BDD (talk) 18:13, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Thor in other media[edit]

Outside of category names, it's unusual to see disambiguators in child articles. In these cases, there's unnecessary disambiguation, which is especially problematic. I understand the logic here, though. We really could use a Thor in popular culture article, but for now, I recommend retargeting these to Norse mythology in popular culture or moving the longer title over the redirects and retargeting the second item there. I'm tempted to favor the moving, but retargeting probably makes more sense in the long run. --BDD (talk) 18:02, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Women in law[edit]

The Rock Poster Art of Todd Slater[edit]

The following is an archived discussion concerning one or more redirects. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on an appropriate discussion page (such as the redirect's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this section.
The result of the discussion was WP:BOLD-ly restoring article. This is essentially a "wrong forum" close. TheLongTone (the editor who converted this article to a redirect), if you have an issue with the state of this content, I would recommend nominating it for WP:AFD. As it stands, due to lack of coverage at the targeting regards to identifying the redirect, the redirect could be seen as unhelpful. (non-admin closure) Steel1943 (talk) 16:40, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

I request that the redirect be deleted and the article it replaced be reinstated. The article was removed by user @TheLongTone without engaging in Talk first. Attempts at reasonable discussion via Talk page have been met with disrespectful attitude and no attempt to discuss. Ukebloke (talk) 16:27, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Other Government Agency[edit]

The redirect is unclear what "government agency" it is meant to exclude. It is a misleading circular reference to its target article. Steel1943 (talk) 14:56, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Kobato[edit]

Shall I convert this redirect page into a two-topic disambiguation page consisting of just Kobato. and Kobato Station? George Ho (talk) 04:22, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Huh. Do we know what the station was named after? --BDD (talk) 04:46, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment there are three topics, the anime, the manga, the station, and wiktionary wikt:鸊/wikt:鵻 (wikt:こばと/wikt:kobato); Two just happen to be covered by a single article, because of weird WPANIME conventions on not making articles, even though the rest of Wikipedia have separate articles for comics and TV cartoons. -- 67.70.32.190 (talk) 04:51, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep - While having a disambiguation page that separates out the anime, the manga, and the station... that seems right to me. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 06:30, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
CoffeeWithMarkets, could you clarify? Do you want to keep the redirect as is and have a Kobato (disambiguation) created, or would you prefer to disambiguate the base title? --BDD (talk) 13:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Administrative city[edit]

Generic term that is now redirected to Cities of South Korea. Rationale is unclear. Think it should be deleted. Savonneux (talk) 07:52, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep and refine to Cities of South Korea#Administrative city, or disambiguate if there's any other topic in Wikipedia called "administrative city". Redirects don't need to be preemptively disambiguated if there's no other topic by the same name. This is the common and official translation of "행정시". 58.176.246.42 (talk) 08:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
I just meant that it is hopelessly vague and it doesn't seem to refer to anything on the page it redirects to. Of note also is that "administrative city" seems to refer specifically to capitals and the like, per Encyclopaedia Britannica, so it would be deleted as a WP:DICDEF on here pretty fast. Translation thing maybe?--Savonneux (talk) 09:07, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Refine. "Administrative city" is a specific type of subdivision in South Korea that is not apparently used elsewhere. Many places have an administrative capital that would make a good hatnote target if it wasn't a red link. This is comparable to Adminstrative region (a specific type of subdivision in Brazil) and Administration county (a former specific type of subdivision in the UK). Thryduulf (talk) 11:43, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Refine to Cities of South Korea#Administrative city per above points. Rubbish computer 13:52, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Huh. Someone unfamiliar with South Korea's system of designating cities would probably be ASTONISHed at this, as I was. I guess I would expect something discussing the idea of a city as an established administrative unit, as opposed to just a bunch of people and buildings together. That said, this isn't a term I'd search for, and it seems implausible overall, so perhaps readers using this would indeed be looking for the South Korean concept. --BDD (talk) 15:19, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
    • If we have anything discussing that idea then I'd certainly consider linking to it either a dab or via a hatnote, but I haven't found anything. Thryduulf (talk) 17:54, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Very weak retarget to Capital city since that is where most political states' administration is located. (Seriously, very weak.) Steel1943 (talk) 22:44, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment per BDD, this should not be a redirect, either it should be a stub article or a set index or something -- 67.70.32.190 (talk) 04:40, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Aaaaaa[edit]

I will take and add WP:PROMO Si Trew (talk) 11:27, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Same as 'Aaaaaa'. Vincent60030 (talk) 11:08, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Vincent60030 (talk) 11:08, 19 July 2015 (UTC) I think this redirect should be deleted since there is already the shortened form Aaaaa. So, this redirect should be 'merged' into the other redirect. Vincent60030 (talk) 03:09, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Vincent60030 (talk) 03:09, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete with nom. Aaaaa also goes there, and could perhaps be added to the nom. Si Trew (talk) 07:16, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment: Well, I think that Aaaaa redirect is also a possible search option since it is very close to Aaaaa! because ppl normally don't use exclamation marks to search for something. So, I think only this one will be deleted and further submissions will be declined leaving only 'Aaaaa!' and 'Aaaaa'. Vincent60030 (talk) 09:45, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment. We also have Aaaaaa and Aaaaaaa (but not Aaaaaaaaa). I limited my comments to when I thought it was useful to keep. We have not Aah! but Aah → DAB at AAH, for example. Aha also → AHA, a DAB, but of course is a completely different band from A-ha). Si Trew (talk) 11:00, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
I knocked the two together. Hope that is OK. Added another, too. A bit WP:PROMO to have all these redirects to one book. Si Trew (talk) 11:18, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
We have AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA for example. Needless DAB, promo. The plot thins. Si Trew (talk) 11:27, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete Aaaaaaa and keep the longer one (because redirecting from the title without punctuation is a common form of {{R from stylization}}) and Aaaaaa (because Steam, a major game retailer, uses six "A"s here so it would be {{R from alternate capitalization}}). --66.87.124.119 (talk) 14:39, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment I won't !vote here because I'm WP:INVOLVED, but I agree with the IP above. We should only have redirects that are legitimate alternate capitalization/stylizing of names of the game that are documented in reliable sources (and I think Steam is okay since WP:COMMONNAME only talks about "reliable English-language sources" not independent sources). If I were to vote, I would vote to keep delete Aaaaaaa and keep the others. If we're not going on sources, we'd have to have redirects from all 20 varients ranging from Aaaaaa to Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. --Ahecht (TALK
    PAGE
    ) 15:16, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete the non-capitalized redirects; keep AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA as a legitimate alternate title. WP:PROMO doesn't apply here - if the redirect title were Greatest game ever then PROMO would apply, but titles are not promotional merely by existing. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 15:43, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Yes, but these are not titles (are they?): if AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! is the title of the book and "a reckless disregard for gravity" is the subtitle, then the topic should be moved to reflect that: we don't generally list things with their subtitles (is this WP:COMMONNAME? I mean we do have Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey but not in all its possible variants of capitalization, and we don't have Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey while Revisiting the Banks of The Wye during a tour, 13 July 1798 even though it was originally published with that title.
Perhaps my reasoning is rather circular: the book is not called "Aaaaaaa" in any form of capitalisation, or anything like it. So the redirects to it, I argue, are promotional because they redirect to one book whose title is nothing like what the redirect says. Now, I am not claiming they are intentionally promotional, I am simply saying they have that effect. But I can see why you would say that PROMO don't apply and you are probably right: I'm quite happy to strike that part of my argument. If not, I still see WP:COMMONNAME comming into play. Si Trew (talk) 13:10, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
According to the article, the video game (not book) is properly titled as it appears here, i.e. it is not a title-subtitle thing. The article also mentions in the lede that Aaaaa! (six letter A's total) is a proper shortened title. Based on that I think we can call Aaaaaa a {{R from alternate punctuation}}. I think we can keep AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA for the same reason; although the article doesn't call it a proper short title, it's a natural short title given the hyphen. The other redirects with numbers of letters A other than six should be deleted, unless a better target is available. My comment above is struck because I can't work out a change to it without disrupting the thread that follows, so I'll restate below. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 14:41, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
I always wanted to be first in the dictionary, but I found it such Aardvark. (Someone had to do it.) Si Trew (talk) 21:03, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep If one of the first two is a typical shortened name, that's obviously valid, and I don't expect readers to have perfect knowledge of how many repeated characters to include. The third, though a bit bizarre, doesn't seem ambiguous. --BDD (talk) 16:11, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Kenneth Peter Townend (1921–2001)[edit]

This redirect is from a title that wouldn't likely ever be accessed. It is simply clutter in the article graph. Kiwi128 (talk) 02:34, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep WP:CHEAP -- the redirect is accurate, and a common way to write people out in the world at large is in this manner -- 67.70.32.190 (talk) 06:34, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep as a harmless redirect, given that the "disambiguator" is the period of years which the subject was alive. Steel1943 (talk)|
  • Weak Keep - While this is of marginal use, redirects are cheap. I don't think keeping this hurts anything. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 10:34, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Dark Invasion[edit]

The following is an archived discussion concerning one or more redirects. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on an appropriate discussion page (such as the redirect's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this section.
The result of the discussion was procedural close on the first redirect, since Captain Assassin! wrote an article on the book. Retarget the second redirect there since it covers the potential film. Consider this withdrawn. (non-admin closure) -- Tavix (talk) 17:16, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Delete per WP:CRYSTAL and WP:R#D2. There is no mention of this film at the target article. -- Tavix (talk) 00:01, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete - The book Dark Invasion is notable enough to have an article of its own. The film is just a project right now and falls under WP:CRYSTAL.
Making a note here that the above comment was added by me. Since there's now an article for the book, I'm fine with a Retarget. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 15:21, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

August 29[edit]

Template:Nrhp source1[edit]

Reference template that we don't use anywhere in article space. Keeping the template around is misleading, as the site it links is a mirror of official National Park Service data and any links should be to the relevant NPS page instead. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 20:22, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Template:Personal issues[edit]

Redundant to other wikibreak templates. A random sample of its 50 transclusions shows it is used on the pages of editors who last edited, variously, in 2007, 2008, and 2010; and one on the user page of an active editor, who placed it there in 2010. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:43, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete as redundant to {{Busy}} per WP:PRIVACY; we should not be encouraging editors, many of whom are very young indeed, to reveal their personal issues publicly, or - even - the mere fact that they are experiencing personal issues, which the assholes of this community are going to have no reservations to use as an excuse to gain the upper hand in a dispute. Alakzi (talk) 18:41, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep - Largely the same response to these multiple nominations: A survey of transclusions at a particular point in time isn't going to tell us anything except that some people have never come back from these breaks. They are, after all, templates intended to be used just for a short period of time. I'm pretty sure I've seen all of them on otherwise active users' pages (i.e. used as intended). As they communicate quite different things about a user's possible [in]activity or scenario, I don't agree they're redundant. In fact, I found these nominations because I added Template:Attempting wikibreak to my talk page just yesterday. That I'm here commenting at TfD instead of being on a wikibreak speaks to the distinction between that template and the other busy/wikibreak templates, I think. I also find the WP:PRIVACY rationale for deletion bizarre. Of all the user page templates, categories, etc. that disclose specific and sometimes very personal information about the user, it's this one -- the one that talks about vague "personal issues" -- that's problematic? I suppose I could support something like a merge to have a single Template:Busy with a parameter to display one of a set of preset messages/designs, but it doesn't seem necessary. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 18:59, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Template:No Internet[edit]

Redundant to other wikibreak templates. A random sample of its mere 19 transclusions shows some on archived talk pages, on the pages of editors who have not edited since, variously, 2007, 2008 and 2010, and one on the user page of an active editor, who placed it there in 2010.

Template:User temporarily inactive[edit]

This was part of a recent multi-template TfD, which closed as "no consensus". I'm re-nominating it separately so we can have a more focussed discussion.

The template has 422 transclusions, a large number of these are on the pages of editors who have not edited for years (and so hardly temporary). The wording is bizarre ("This does not imply the violation of any Wikipedia policies."). Finally, it is redundant to {{Busy}} and other "away" templates. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:39, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete, preferably permanently. This has been placed on user and user talk pages by third parties, a little less than ten years ago; {{Not here}} would make a suitable replacement. However, editors would be best served by a "user last edited" gadget or user script or somesuch; placing this or any other similar notice on the pages of people who've parted ways with Wikipedia strikes me as intrusive. Further, these notices have got very limited coverage, and are - therefore - unreliable indicators of users' availability. Alakzi (talk) 17:16, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Deletion review[edit]

29 August 2015[edit]

2600hz[edit]

2600hz (talk|edit|history|logs|links|watch) (XfD|restore)

This article was being debated as valid. The editor who nominated it for deletion did not work to improve the article first, and contributors to the article contested that. Then the original editor who nominated it started working with another contributor to clean up the page after the deletion was contested, so that the page could be brought up to date and additional notable sources could be cited. I believe the page was deleted because it reached the 7-day period for review and the majority answers were Delete, but the Deletes were specified prior to the page receiving a clean-up. Per Wikipedia rules, an article that may be relevant and is just poorly written or cited should first have the opportunity to be updated before being nominated for deletion. You can see an active discussion (still ongoing) about the content of the page here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Neurosys_zero with the editor who originally nominated the page for deletion.
