  • Comment A few capsule reviews do not constitute "significant coverage" as required by WP:GNG. Wikipedia policy on notability for films has clear and specific criteria, as for example (from Wikipedia:NFO) "full-length reviews by two or more nationally known critics" or "at least two non-trivial articles, at least five years after the film's initial release." Wikipedia notability is a high bar, this film doesn't reach it. HouseOfChange (talk) 22:47, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep: Notable with enough coverage. WP:NFO is being misused because it doesn't state that is what a film article must have. That section of the film notability guideline is titled "Other evidence of notability", meaning that the section is only for if a film article doesn't meet the general notability guideline. SL93 (talk) 02:41, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete. The empire review is the only decent bit of coverage about the film. One slightly good piece is not enough. Passing mentions and a capsule review fall well short. duffbeerforme (talk) 12:46, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

I created this page ages ago because I remembered his rendition of "I'm Gonna Hurt Her on the Radio". However I'm struggling to find any information on him at all besides the brief AllMusic bio. Billboard published a review of his debut single but gave him no other attention. "Keith Perry" + "Curb Records" returns nothing whatsoever on Newspapers.com -- not even The Tennesseean, a newspaper based in Nashville, saw fit to cover an artist who was on a Nashville-based label for 5+ years. The only other hits on American Radio History are passing mentions such as release dates for his singles, mentioning that he is part of the label's roster, or other uninformative fluff.

While he does meet one criterion of WP:NMUSIC with two albums on a notable label (Curb Records), one of the two was merely a covers album that got no attention whatsoever. None of his singles or albums charted anywhere, and he doesn't seem to have gotten any sort of media attention. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 09:02, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Run of the mill article about a start up. Most references are primary, press-releases and trivial business as usual report about attempts to get financing. Did get coverage in a WSJ blog [1], so that's something, even through blogs associated with bigger reliable news outlets are still, well, blogs (WP:SPS, depends on whether the parent company does editorial checks or not, and that's not really public info...). I think this story was also picked up by others, like [2], but in the end its a variant of WP:ONENEWS, and I don't think that's sufficient to make this company notable.

Company ad-like entry, most of references are blogs, press releases and primary. A few mentions in passing. Some usual startup trivial coverage related to fundraising. There is a piece about it in The Australian Financial Review ([3]) but I don't think it is sufficient to warrant keeping this, but maybe if we look at other sources together (my WP:BEFORE doesn't show anything else that's good) we can find reasons to not delete this... right now IMHO it falls on the wrong end of boderline, but with the AFR piece it at least shows a possibility of not being your garden variety spam (plus, the creator is an experienced Wikipedian I respect :D and not some COI SPI, so AGF on the intent, too).

  • Keep (Note, I'm article's author).
I have gone through google-scholar today and added 6 academic references to the lead paragraph (tightening that section up in the process). I acknowledge that these academic articles only refer to Withlocals in order to illustrate their wider points but I believe they collectively help demonstrate that the organisation is sufficiently notable to be seen as representative of trends about the 'sharing economy' and 'gastronomic tourism' - particularly in southeast asia, the market where the company focused initially. I would also argue that the "horizon 2020" - from the European Commission grant makes it notable on the basis that they've won a government-funded support 'prize'.
As a side point, given that you took the time to check the edit history you will have noticed that the article had been being expanded daily - I hadn't abandoned it. I'd have appreciated if you would have brought your concerns about the notability of the article to me directly (e.g. pinging me on its talkpage) rather than going straight for the deletion nomination which starts a ticking-clock. Late last week I also asked the organisation itself if they had any other press-clippings they had collected, and if they could provide some free-licensed multimedia, to supplement the article - so that might come in soon too. As you state yourself Piotrus, you know and trust me so you're not claiming this is drive-by spam: my motivation for creating the article is that I recently signed-up to be a local guide on this platform in my home city, and was doing research about it in the process.

The article as it stands is something of a COATRACK and fails NPOV, especially since the "Marriage and Divorce" section is sourced entirely from primary sources. (There was previously a negative section entitled "Judicial tenure" that was sourced entirely from a Google search.) While enough of the negative stuff has been removed to "save" this from G10, a Google search shows no evidence of passing the GNG; the results are mainly primary sources, and after half a page it starts showing results from a different Kevin Ross, who's a judge from Delaware. Given this and the present BLP concerns I don't think this topic is worthy of a Wikipedia article at this time. – John M Wolfson (talkcontribs) 04:18, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

This is all verifiable and true. This is all public. His divorce opinion is public. This article cannot be deleted and is well sourced. It is not overwhelmingly negative.

Wikiposteryolo (talk) 04:38, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
Wikiposteryolo, that material is true or even verifiable does not guarantee inclusion into Wikipedia. NPOV is about selective emphasis of facts to distort the big picture just as much as, if not more than, the facts themselves and their sourcing; Wikipedia is not the place to right great wrongs. Also, a generic Google search (reference #4), without even mentioning the specific entry, does not good sourcing make, nor does the court case as it's a primary source. The fact that Ross is a living person makes these issues much more acute for Wikipedia's purposes. Merely being a public official does not qualify a person for a Wikipedia article, and even without the NPOV issues I fail to see evidence that Ross does pass that bar (no pun intended). It also doesn't help your case to insinuate without evidence that I am somehow connected with the subject of the article. – John M Wolfson (talkcontribs) 05:57, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

There is a lot of name-dropping in this article, but I can't find notability here. The sources given are either directly tied to the company, or are based on PR releases. My attempts to find independent, reliable sources did not turn up anything, but I'll admit my efforts were hindered by numerous results related to Big Machine Records, of which this label has no relation. I don't see that the label has signed any notable artists, nor does it seem to have had any impact on any regional musical culture, or played a significant part in the exposure or development of any genre. Therefore I currently judge this to fail both WP:GNG and any criteria by which notability may be assigned to a record label. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 02:32, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Developmental dysfluency[edit]

Developmental dysfluency (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: Google (books · news · newspapers · scholar · free images · WP refs· FENS · JSTOR · NYT · TWL)

Reasons[edit]

(1) The terms "developmental dysfluency" or "developmental disfluency" are rarely used in the scholarly literature. For example:

  • Google Scholar search for "developmental dysfluency" (exact phrase, any time, no patents, no citations) returned only 72 results.
  • Google Scholar search for "developmental disfluency" (exact phrase, any time, no patents, no citations) returned only 137 results.
  • Google nGram search for "developmental dysfluency" (exact phrase, 1800–2008) found zero results.
  • Google nGram search for "developmental disfluency" (exact phrase, 1800–2008) found zero results.

A total of 209 results for the phrase (both spelling variations) might sound like a lot to some, but contrast those numbers with Google Scholar searches (any time; no patents; no citations) for stuttering (97700 results), or dyslexia (203000 results).

(2) When the term is used, it lacks a consistent definition. One sees three different definitions for the phrase:

(a) Normal development stage - Some websites and occasional articles define "developmental dysfluency" as the normal initial struggles young children(~ages 2–5) exhibit when learning how to speak, e.g., speech hesitancy, mispronunciation, or stuttering.[1]

(b) Classification - Other publications use the phrase as an umbrella term for speech disorders such as stuttering or cluttering.

(c) Speech disorder symptoms - Developmental dysfluency is defined as abnormal speech.[2][3]

(3) The article's statistics, including the fact that no other articles link to the page, provide additional evidence for the term's relative obscurity. Basic stats for the article: 30 revisions since 2007-12-03 (+56 minutes), 15 editors, 86 pageviews (30 days).

  • Comment I think the nom has made a good case for this condition, or at least the terms for it, not being mainstream. Still, a search showed the term is used in some reliable sources, so it might merit a mention on Wikipedia. Note that we also have speech disfluency, which overlaps this article. Perhaps a redirect or a sentence mentioning the term in speech disfluency would be a way forward? --{{u|Mark viking}} {Talk} 21:58, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
I agree that the term is used in a smattering of reliable sources. Unfortunately, those sources assign different meanings to the phrase. If this article described those various definitions and noted that the term is used in only a small number of peer-reviewed scholarly articles and textbooks, the article would at least present accurate information, although I would still question the notability of the term. ¶ The speech disfluency article is only marginally better than this one. Adding a discussion about a confusing, obscure phrase to that article would need to occur along with an overhaul of the article as a whole. ¶ Most importantly, I appreciate you taking the time to comment! :0)   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) (I am a man.

      The article notes:

      Psyop easily could be dubbed the Pixar of the spots world, given its reputation as the go-to shop for top notch animation and design. Known for now classic Coke ads such as "Happiness Factory," the company turned out more stellar work with the charming "Man and Dog" short film for the beverage giant out of Wieden & Kennedy.

      With Director Fletcher Moules, the company also helped to develop the colorful backstory to the characters of Super Cell's popular "Clash of Clans" game in spots via Barton F. Graf 9000. Those included an unexpected Super Bowl favorite, starring Liam Neeson in "Taken" character as a vengeful game player, AngryNeeson52 (the live action portion of which was directed by MJZ's Tom Kuntz).

      ...

      The company also brought unparalleled sophistication to paint advertising in an entrancing spot for Sherwin-Williams from McKinney. On a more massive scale, Psyop brought the game of soccer to epic, out of this world proportions in the over-the-top athletes meets aliens campaign for the Samsung Galaxy, via Cheil Worldwide.

      The article notes:

      You're going to get brainwashed. You're going to be sitting on your couch, watching your favorite show when it breaks for a commercial. You'll see a man napping in the grass next to a bottle of Coke and you'll be somewhat annoyed. But then zooooommmmmm, you'll be flying through a cloud of dandelion dander with a lazy formation of bumblebees. Then back down in the grass. You will see the expression on a grasshopper's face. The whole insect world will conspire around you, working together with orchestral precision to steal that guy's Coke. Pretty soon you'll stop wondering how long this is going to take and you start wondering how they're going to get the top off that bottle. And that is how Psyop gets you — with commercials that don't feel like advertisements at all, but rather minimovies. Commercials that, per the company's name, trick you into thinking they're something else — entertainment and fun. The aforementioned one for Coke, "Heist," has been viewed more than six hundred thousand times on YouTube. Another Coke ad, "Happiness Factory," hit two million views this summer, all powered by word of mouth and e-mail links sent friend to friend:

      ...

      It's the same formula New York — based Psyop has perfected on dozens of other campaigns that have generated millions of views around the world: Come up with a crazy concept first, then worry about inventing the technology to make it happen. Check out its work for UPS: an entire world you could walk into that looks as if it were fashioned from corrugated cardboard. Or the vodka bottle that explodes through your monitor for Absolut. Or the animals of the forest dancing for Orangina. Every Psyop commercial is a digital universe to get lost in and amazed by and pass on to your friends.

Known for its elegant and well-thought out visuals, the company demonstrated Pixar-competitive chops on the magnificent, character-filled world it created for Coke's feel good "Happiness Factory," out of WK/London. Meanwhile, it has added breadth and depth to its offerings with the addition of MassMarket, a design-oriented effects shop fronted by former Method man Chris Staves, and Blacklist, home to a fresh new class of international, media-agnostic talents.

      Intruders? Yes, maybe five, ten years ago, when the industry might have considered a group of animator/designers inappropriate for a directors report. But now, no one's questioning if Psyop belongs. The collective was conceived in an experimental graphics lab at MTV?even there they were outsiders?but since breaking off to form a new company in 2000, Psyop has helped to reshape what we've come to know as commercials storytelling. Over the years, team members Marie Hyon, Kylie Matulick, Eben Mears, Marco Spier and Todd Mueller (seen below, from left) have injected their distinctive visual imprint onto the spots world, evident in notable work for Lugz, Starbucks, Nike, Honda and MTV. Meanwhile, they've evolved into something more warm, fuzzy and character-driven. Look no further than recent spots for Fanta, the beloved Coca-Cola "Happiness Factory" (and its upcoming sequel) for proof that Psyop has truly arrived. (AD)

      Then there is the black-and-white imagery of the music cable channel VH1’s Music Awards campaigns. Images composed entirely of simplified, line-drawn people that look, move and act like real people in real time. The sense of reality jars with the minimal stylisation, increasing as each sting becomes evermore surreal. Both are the work of Psyop, the New York-based studio that is making TV animation as fresh as the best work coming out of London.

      ‘Psyop’ is a compound of Psychological Operations, borrowed from a dark governmental practice in mind and behaviour control.

      It’s in the design arena that you find Psyop’s true mindset. It sees itself as a design studio rather than an animation production house, so it’s no surprise to discover that a large percentage of its creatives come from graphic design backgrounds.

      Between them, founding partners Marie Hyon, Kylie Matulick, Eben Mears, Todd Mueller and Marco Spier previously worked at the design production studios of cable channels Nickelodeon, SCIFI Channel and the MTV Digital Design Lab. Almost as a cable channel design collective, the group came together to form a fully independent design and production team.

      ...

      Psyop’s style has transformed other campaigns including a set of simple linework animated TV ads for Volkswagen and a music video for US hip hop group Coflow, in which live video footage follows a crazed black line of 3D graffiti that continually re-draws itself over any New York subway wall or train it comes across. In each case the work refuses to compromise on creativity.

      The article notes:

      Newly formed animation/design firm Psyop has entered into a deal with production house MTV Commercials for exclusive domestic spot representation. Both companies are based in New York.

      Prior to formally opening, Psyop had already collaborated with MTV Commercials on projects such as Starburst's "Revelations" via Grey Advertising, New York, and a client-direct Pepsi Fruitworks spot, "Professional Fan League.

      Currently, Psyop is pitching for a second Starbursts assignment, and is working on both a VH1 campaign and a TV Land ad. (VH1 and TV Land are sister cable networks to MTV.)

      Psyop's roots are firmly entrenched in MTV soil. The animation/design firm was founded by three former MTV networks' colleagues: designers/directors Made Hyon and Todd Mueller; and technical director Eben Mears. Hyon was an art director at TV Land; she previously held the same job at sister networks Nickelodeon and Nick at Nite. Earlier in their careers, Mears was Nick Digital's chief animator, and Mueller was senior producer of on-air promos. Mueller had also created and produced the '96-'99 show amp, MTV's weekly mix of electronic music and experimental animation. Most recently, Mears and Mueller were at the Sci-Fi Channel (USA Networks), where they served, respectively, as visual effects supervisor/Inferno artist and art director.

      The article notes:

      A new spot and mobile game for the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) aims to change that. “Nightmare: Malaria” is a 90-second animated film created by animation studio Psyop that begins as a sweet bedtime story before quickly devolving into a hallucinatory trip that paints a picture of how the disease affects a body. Symptoms such as high fever, violent convulsions, vicious sickness, and attacks on the liver and brain are rendered with psychotic energy befitting a Hunter S. Thompson tale. Narrated with equal parts delicacy and force by Susan Sarandon (who agreed to participate after Psyop’s repeated pleas finally coincided with an opening in her schedule), the moral of the fable is that such suffering and fear can be avoided with a simple bed net. An 18-level mobile game, in which players avoid killer mosquitoes and collect teddy bear tokens amid fever-dream visuals, further impresses how diabolical malaria can be.

      ...

      While the project was created by Psyop, a top animation studio, “Nightmare: Malaria” is actually the first client project from the company’s training program, The Establishment for the Greater Good (EGG), and was created by eight students over one summer internship.

    Ad Age notes that "Psyop easily could be dubbed the Pixar of the spots world, given its reputation as the go-to shop for top notch animation and design."

    Fast Company calls Psyop "a top animation studio".

    Design Week says Psyop is "the New York-based studio that is making TV animation as fresh as the best work coming out of London".

    Equire notes, "It's the same formula New York — based Psyop has perfected on dozens of other campaigns that have generated millions of views around the world: Come up with a crazy concept first, then worry about inventing the technology to make it happen."

I can't find any evidence that this company meets (or met) WP:NCORP. It's not traded, it doesn't have a notable product (even assumed by Oracle, the buyer). I'm not seeing a ton of in-depth independent coverage towards the GNG, either. There are a couple of claims of awards, but no references towards those and I can't find anything covering them, either -- plus they're about the founder, not the company itself.

Fails WP:NACADEMIC.

As to WP:ANYBIO, nearly nothing apart from Martha Nussbaum's criticism. And, I am highly doubtful of the article, felling afoul of WP:BLP, if the article is indeed sourced to the sole significant third party coverage of his works (Nussbaum). WBGconverse 13:14, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep: A notable pundit. This article has been nominated for deletion before and kept. The subject was notable then and is notable now. The article has evolved considerably since the last AfD from this version. Content was added by User:Kautilya3, bringing it up from 10,531 to 12,124 characters, then a large amount was removed by user:Winged Blades of Godric, bringing it down to 4,982 characters. User:Winged Blades of Godric then nominated it for deletion a second time.Face-smile.svgThe subject is controversial, defending the RSS against criticism by secularists such as Sabrang Communications over the way funding for the Ekal Vidyalaya was being used. That is not a reason to trash or delete the article. Aymatth2 (talk) 13:45, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

The subject is not notable as an academic. They are notable per WP:GNG because they have been discussed by various independent writers, as cited in the earlier version:
A search in Google books for "Ramesh Rao" "RSS" gives a sense of the sorts of issue the subject is involved in. Aymatth2 (talk) 14:12, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
WP:GNG necessitates significant coverage and it's pretty clear that you have not bothered to read a single of the afore-dumped sources. None apart from Nussbaum devotes more than a couple of lines towards him. Trivial name-drops in footnotes (first and last-but-one cites) and back-cover profiles (sixth, seventh and eighth cites) does not count towards a passage of WP:GNG. I also don't see where is Rao mentioned, in your second, third and last cite; please provide quotes. The interview (fourth cite) is from an unreliable media-unit and does not count any towards a passage of WP:N, either.WBGconverse 15:29, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Sources tend to focus on what Rao has said or written, but that is sufficient to establish notability. For example,

  • IMO, trivial coverage in the form of a single quote and a couple of lines. Even more vitally, negative coverage. Still thanks for bringing this up; I failed to spot it.
More than a couple of lines, more like a page - read it. Aymatth2 (talk) 19:11, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Wot?! Clarifying the logic underlying such a view, Ramesh Rao, one of Hindutva's most vocal and popular contemporary advocates, state:- [A paragraphed quote].Finely carving out details with all the finesse of a hatchet job, Rao quickly conflates Moplahs with Khilafat and signals the danger of both by dropping the word jihad into the mix. Again, the essentialized Muslim is assigned the role of bogeyman, as no effort is made to understand or to distinguish between the peasant Moplahs of the Malabar Coast rising up against local landlords or the anti-Western imperialism nature of Khilafat or, for that matter, the complexities of the word jihad.

  • Most trivial; a byte in a news-report does not contribute to WP:SIGCOV in any form or manner. I have landed on this news-piece earlier, FWIW.

If you dispute the accuracy of this source, which appears to check the facts very carefully, you must demonstrate that they are unreliable through examples. Much of their extensive discussion of the subject is based on an analysis of the subject's own publications. Aymatth2 (talk) 19:43, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
  • We don't deem interviews to contribute any to WP:N. Check comments over the recent RfC on the t/p of WP:INTERVIEW and over other related community-discussions. FWIW, Swarajya is a BJP/Indian-RW-mouthpiece for all practical purposes and its independence is highly questionable. WBGconverse 18:58, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Interviews is an essay, but makes the point that interviews show the subject has been noted and contribute to notability. Aymatth2 (talk) 22:29, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
I asked you to view the t/p of the essay; esp. the sections about clarifying the section on notability and why it was not promoted to a supplementary guideline. As TonyBallioni said:- The section on notability in particular is just plain wrong: interviews can under no circumstances count towards notability as they are inherently primary sources, and counting them as towards the GNG defeats the point of our being a tertiary source. As someone has noted on the t/p, the essay used to be much clearer on the aspect of notability from interviews, before two paid editors (who have since got banned) modified a lot much of the content. WBGconverse 05:19, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
I see nothing in any guideline that says interviews cannot contribute to notability. What the interviewee says is of course primary, although it may be quoted. The interview shows media interest in the subject. Aymatth2 (talk) 19:43, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
@Winged Blades of Godric: I am intrigued by your comment: "Even more vitally, negative coverage". How does this affect notability? Aymatth2 (talk) 19:11, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Rao is not a high-profile-figure even in the RW eco-system; if we choose to exploit the two RS which covers him (Nussbaum and Bhagavan), we need to write some sort of overtly critical hit-piece on him, which has a high potential to fell afoul of WP:BLP. In case of low-profile-figures, whose sole notability is borderline and comes from entirely negative coverage, we generally exercise our discretion to not have an article 'bout them. WBGconverse 05:19, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
@Winged Blades of Godric: You may be confusing sources that provide verifiable information and sources that establish notability. When you gutted the earlier version of the article you threw out a lot of content from reliable sources. I propose to restore that information, and to add more from some of the sources that discuss the subject in depth. We cannot say that because much of the discussion of the subject is negative we are forced to write an over-critical and unfair article. We can let the facts speak for themselves. The interviews are useful in giving verifiable quotes by the subject himself. As "one of Hindutva's most vocal and popular contemporary advocates" he warrants an article.

NEW NOMINATIONS[edit]

Category:Wikipedia categories named after districts of London[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Rename to avoid ambiguity with local government districts and for consistency with List of areas of London and Category:Areas of London. The category currently also contains the London boroughs themselves (such as Category:London Borough of Newham) but boroughs are quite different to the settlements, for example West Ham is a settlement in the London Borough of Newham and combining these 2 substantially different things in 1 category seems inappropriate per WP:NOTDIC. I therefore suggest moving the borough categories back to Category:Wikipedia categories named after districts of England, alternatively a Category:Wikipedia categories named after London boroughs could be created but I don't think we would need it. Note that some London boroughs are named after the settlements and the settlement doesn't have a separate category (such as Category:London Borough of Harrow) but its likely that in time there will be separate categories and unlike Category:Bromsgrove there is no indication of the category being for both anyway in addition to the fact it would need to be at Category:Harrow, London then. I would also support renaming Category:Districts of England to something like Category:Local government districts of England but that's outside of this discussion. Crouch, Swale (talk) 10:23, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Category:Literary techniques[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Merge Category:Literary techniques into Category:Narrative techniques.
They are the same thing.
They have the same parent article, List of narrative techniques.
The former parent article was moved to the later (Talk:List of narrative techniques#Requested move 23 May 2015).
The content of one could equally be the content of the other.
The categorization of Category:Literary techniques corresponds well-enough to the target. SmokeyJoe (talk) 01:40, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Retard sterilization[edit]

Offensive and implausible. Most google hits for "retard sterilization" are about retarding the process of sterilization, not compulsory sterilization. The page only gets about 20 pageviews a year, and I suspect most of those come from people typing naughty words into the search box for laughs, rather than people who genuinely want to know what the term means.
