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

Adyen[edit]

Concerns were raised that the article is a violation of WP:PROMO and still doesn't meet Wikipedia:Notability#General notability guideline. Would editors review the article to fix any Wikipedia:Neutral point of view violations and also look for more sources? Cunard (talk) 05:11, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Kept (no consensus). —Syrenka V (talk) 20:55, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Bitnation[edit]

A cyberspace nation, similar to the Principality of Sealand, but taking the micronation idea a step further by dispensing with physical territory altogether, in favor of a Bitcoin-style blockchain. Currently written like an advertisement, but ample sources appear to exist, and to establish that this is not a hoax (although it is of course controversial in the same way that Sealand is). Numerous sources cited, but only with links. Sourcing needs considerable cleanup: better formatting, and elimination of excessive use of biased or non-independent sources. —Syrenka V (talk) 09:25, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Budgie (desktop environment)[edit]

Apparently popular Linux desktop. Nominated with the comment "It does not have notability and reliable sources." Reliable sources do appear to exist, although some are very recent (last 24 hours, therefore published after the nomination!). —Syrenka V (talk) 22:54, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Forbes Fictional 15[edit]

Revival of an article deleted long ago for WP:COPYVIO problems not present in the current version, and for alleged unencylopedicity. Topic is a list published by Forbes, analogous to the Forbes 400, but for fictional characters rather than real individuals. Adequate sources appear to exist, over a long enough period of time to show persistent interest in the topic. —Syrenka V (talk) 22:42, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Religious assimilation[edit]

Nominated after an unsuccessful WP:PROD by the nominator, contested by Kvng. Currently unsourced, but ample sources exist; for example, Rwanda: a case study in religious assimilation is the very first hit from Google Books. Arguments being made for redirection to Cultural assimilation, but this seems inappropriate in the light of sources focusing specifically on religious assimilation. Despite abundant sources, copywrong and paywall problems interfere significantly with access to sources. —Syrenka V (talk) 20:54, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

The Works of Alan Watts[edit]

Article on a prominent popular philosopher—for once, notability is not an issue. Current trend of discussion is against deletion. But the article needs considerable work; large sections, though not the entire article, have been blanked (during the deletion discussion!) for WP:COPYVIO, and the resulting blank space is being used as an argument for draftification. —Syrenka V (talk) 02:56, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Medical Marijuana, Inc.[edit]

A publicly-traded medical marijuana company with an unusually diverse portfolio. Currently written like an advertisement, but enough reliable sources to establish notability appear to exist. —Syrenka V (talk) 19:28, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
