Doesn't seem to meet WP:NACADEMIC only has primary sources. Brustopher (talk) 00:43, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment I was starting to think the same thing, but I'm doubting the accuracy of his Google Scholar profile. The most-cited publication (about same-sex weddings, written by someone named Ingraham) appears to be erroneously credited to him, as far as I can tell. In addition, there are several articles related to magnetic resonance imaging that were written by an AG Collins rather than this economist. I'm not sure what the actual h-index should be, but it seems a lot lower without the apparently misattributed publications (with citation counts of 362, 311, 248, 248, 145, 115, 76, 63, 63, 61... probably others). His website indicates prior work as an engineer/planner, but there is nothing about science/MR/NMR and he doesn't claim these kinds of publications on his site. EricEnfermero (Talk) 06:52, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Weak delete. With the Google scholar profile obviously not well curated, and Google scholar itself hopeless because of the common name, we'll have to look elsewhere for notability. He's not in the top 10% of economists as ranked by RePEc (approximately 4400 economists) [2]. He is however in the top 25% of UK economists, at number 669 out of 875 [3] (the same ranking places the department he heads as 78th in the UK). Category:British economists and its subcategories have 529 members (possibly fewer if some people are in more than one subcategory). So I'm skeptical whether this is good enough for WP:PROF#C1, but maybe it's close. His book Playing the Love Market has one academic review that I found [4] and his edited volume Cities of Pleasure has two [5] [6]. These give a plausible but quite weak case for WP:AUTHOR. But I'm not seeing anything that makes notability clear, and I'd rather not let a bunch of lesser things add up to more than they are. —David Eppstein (talk) 07:37, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Definite keep -- His faculty biography describes him as "Professor" and head of department. In UK sense, that alone should be sufficient for a keep. That links to a list of publications, listing over 80 articles, starting in 1992. That is a significant body of work. Peterkingiron (talk) 17:10, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep: The article has been in poor shape and needs work: I have made various changes but left the final paragraph for the duration of the AfD despite it being discussion more appropriate on the Talk page (and which does the article no favours - I originally expected to conclude with a Delete opinion). However, the subject of the article has in his career received two awards which have WP articles (now linked and verified) and I notice is also described as an "éminence grise" in his field on the Stedelijk Museum site [7], so I think there is enough for biographical notability.

Was speedy tagged for non-notability but has some third party coverage - a quick search found [8], [9] and [10]. Necessarily, some of the coverage will be in Estonian. It was once userified in 2010. However, the fact that several editors collaborated over an extended period of time to create the page makes me think there could be more to it. Let's hear your assessment on this.

WP:TOOSOON. The topic of this page was introduced in a 2014 research article in IEEE Computer, which so far has attracted, according to GScholar, 4 citations. Two of those are in the (non-peer reviewed) magazine HPC Today, and have been written by the author of the IEEE Computer article; they're the same article, but GScholar didn't get that.

  • Keep, re-write

There is plenty of information on the Škoda Joyster with a quick search query. However, the article may need to be re-written to announce that nothing has come of this project, or would that count as original research?

Either way, there is more than enough information on this car out there to say that it exists, and should have an article on it. Solntsa90 (talk) 09:11, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep as per Kraxler; It passes WP:BROADCAST and while there isn't much written material on it, New Zealand is a very small nation with a population less than that of Chicagoland. However, there are some related press material, and it is an up-and-running channel in New Zealand--perhaps it is relatively inconsequential for most of the English speaking world, but this channel would be very mainstream in New Zealand, as it is part of the Sky network.

  • Comment I find this biography extremely confusing partially because I don't speak Bulgarian. Mimo Garcia is a "Bulgarian director, actor, TV/radio host, writer and LGBT rights activist", has published 3 books of poetry and will direct a film this summer...but he is 17 years old! The article said he changed his name when he was 18 years old...but he is 17. When I looked at one of his books at Goodreads, all of the reviews are 5 star raves. It's hard to believe he has accomplished so much at his young age. But if he hasn't actually done all of this, he has created a lot of website material that supports this biography although much of it is from user-generated content sites or the links are bad. He is either amazingly accomplished for a teenager in Bulgaria (which I doubt) or he is an adept self-promoter. Liz Read! Talk! 14:13, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
I speak Bulgarian - I included his name in Cyrillic above (Мимо Гарсия) so you can search for sources in BG. There is simply nothing there. Not a single news article, interview, television appearance etc. He seems to be a very ambitious young man. Note "someone" even created a Wikiquote article about himself with a quote from his blog: wikiquote:Mimo_Garcia. There is a separate AfD on the movie he supposedly directed and starred in - thereis not a single news article about it. His books at Good Reads are self-published - the publishing house he listed for at least one is essentially a Kinko's. [17]. It's almost at the level of speedy delete as hoax. There is something very strange about all this - note what I removed from his bio in the personal life section: [18]. МандичкаYO 😜 21:04, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

This is an article about a publishing house. It is written in extremely poor English, and it is very hard to understand. It is probably machine-translated from Albanian. The subject lacks the WP:NOTABILITY. There are zero reliable independent sources cited in the article. All sources cited are either the company's own sites, or are writeen by the company owner ([23]) or are dead links, or do not mention the company at all. It is hard to look for reliable sources using Google Search because Rrjedha means simply "stream" in Albanian. As far as I was able to search, I found no reliable sources.

Keep: Sources: There are two references published by cnBeta.com (zh), a well-known (alexa ranked 1104 worldwide and 145 in China) Chinese-language, non-self-publishing, general IT-related news website. The two references was added by me and, before doing that I posted "I'll add some sources from some popular Chinese sites" on that article's talk page and another editor User:Old Death responded later "That should be sufficient". I'd suggest User:DissidentAggressor post under that thread if he disagrees the sufficiency of the sources, instead of asking for deletion directly and stating "unable to find any third-party (non eMule) coverage of this project, as noted back in June 2010 on the article's talk page" which according to what I said is not true at all.
Influence: Xtreme Mod brought a remarkable anti-leecher function (DLP (Dynamic Leecher Protection)) into the eMule/eDonkey world, thus brought in lots of discussion in Chinese and in worldwide eMule or even all peer-to-peer file sharing community. Leecher and anti-leecher is really an interesting topic and culture in the P2P world, you may also read Leech (computing)#P2P networks and BitTorrent.
Other notability: In China, Xtreme mod's user may be more than official eMule's, although among eDonkey network clients it may be VeryCD's easyMule which gets the most Chinese users. And as stated in the article, it is the most popular emule mod in the world and there may be really few eDonkey network clients, except official eMule, that can be more popular (according to users count) than Xtreme mod.--Tomchen1989 (talk) 21:56, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

An article about a media mogul who owns multiple news channels and companies. While most of the news channels passes WP:ORG but since WP:NOTINHERIT the subject may not pass our notability threshold. Most of the coverage is just passing mentions and a large amount of coverage is not independent of the subject (News reports from his own channels). Furthermore, few independent sources can't be used as most of them are of controversies, which can't be added as it would look WP:UNDUE and will be a violation of WP:BLP.

While there are some sources, I think this article is problematic on WP:ADMASK grounds. It seems like a public relations piece, and to give the topic an encyclopedic article given a quick Google search doesn't make the event seem like that big of a deal seems problematic to me. Jd027 (talk) 01:24, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

I disagree they have more than just some sources

a) There are more than just "some sources", there quite a bit of sources and there from major names.

b) Besides sources the National Dwarf Fashion show has contributed to fashion weeks in major cities: New York, Paris, and Berlin

c) Has collaborated with the organization "Donnons Leur Une Chance" which is a big organization in France and has a french wikipedia page. I am unsure and trying to figure out how to link the french wikipedia page to the american wikipedia page.

d) Has worked with celebrities including: Jordanna James from the TV show Little Women

e) Has show cased well know designer "Lena Hoschek" who also has a wikipedia page on the french wikipedia.

Not only does The National Dwarf Fashion Show have a lot press coverage. As you can see from above and clearly states in the article they have: Worked with a well known organization, worked with celebrities and show cased works of a notable designers and contributed to the fashion weeks of major cities. It's for this reason i believe their noteworthy enough a wikipedia article

Nerdypunkkid (talk) 08:28, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit]

  • Jd027 did you even bother to read this Wikipedia article or take a look at it's citations. If you did you will notice that it's about a company named The National Dwarf Fashion Show that contributed to Fashion Week in major cities. The article is not about a particular event which makes me wonder did you bother to read the article at all.
  • None of the citations used provides a way for the one reading it to contact the company, there no phone number, address, email, etc listed. Usually in an ad or PR piece would include such
  • Even if a contact was provided what service would one hire them for, there an organization that works with organizations the works with people living dwarfism.

50.74.104.61 (talk) 02:03, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

An article doesn't have to include contact information in order to be too promotional. PR is not the same as advertising, and simply increasing positive awareness of something is also a form of promotion. This article is about a company, but the first sentence after the lead says "The National Dwarf Fashion Show is an event initiated by..." The article itself doesn't seem to know how to describe it, so it's hardly surprising that an editor might find this confusing. Grayfell (talk) 03:21, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure. It seems like there's might be article here somewhere, maybe, but the sources are mostly very flimsy. Most of the good sources are primarily about specific events, rather than this particular company, and most of them emphasize Creative Business House (CBH) as being the event producers with no mention of any other organization. If there is a salvageable article here, it would be about the event series, not the company:
This brief blurb from Welfare Society Territory might be usable, except at no point does it mention The National Dwarf Fashion Show. It does however mention CBH Agency
This one is comprehensive and informative, but I don't see enough info to accept that Glammonitor is a reliable source (zilch at WP:RSN). Also, as above, this is about a specific event, and not about the company. That source seems to say that the event was put on by CBH, not the National Dwarf Fashion Show. Is this article about the event, or the company? Regardless, the source doesn't appear to be usable.
The post by "Reign Entertainment" is a blog and is useless as a source. Likewise, Reality Tea doesn't appear to be a reliable source (it's used a lot on Wikipedia, apparently, but it shouldn't be, and it's not useful here).
The Mirror source doesn't seem to be loading properly. All I'm seeing is a single headline and nothing else.
The Entertainment Tonight source is okay, but less than a minute is about the show (hardly "extensive" as the article claims) and again, was about a specific event for NY Fashion Week and says "the event, from Creative Business House, was all about..." No mention of any other company.
The Lifetime link, http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/little-women-ny/video/full-episodes , says (as a URL title) "Page not found". The URL is likely too generic to be useful, anyway.
The Journal du Dimanche source is in French, but really seems like it's again saying CBH is responsible. Ditto France 24.
As for the remaining external links... Nerdypunkkid, do you actually speak French and/or Italian? Non-English sources are usable, but there needs to be something more than just a linkdump for this to be helpful. They look like event listings and gossip site blog posts. Am I wrong? Grayfell (talk) 05:47, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Hello again Grayfell its seems you have taken a liking to articles I have written and published on wikipedia or maybe its a liking to me, either way i'm flattered. I will address your comments shortly but I wanted to let you know that I do not actual speak nor read french nor italian but if you use google chrome to view the article it will translate it for you within a number seconds. I should have mentioned this early on in the article's talk page
  • The name of the company is The National Dwarf Fashion Show, who parent company is Creative Business House, which puts on a series of events which is known as The National Dwarf Fashion Show, yes this is confusing and I understand, not that its pointed out. I'm in the process of redoing writing the article to clear this up.
  • The Lifetime link has been fixed and there is no problem other than slow loading with the Mirror source and the Welfare Society Territory citation one can assume upon reading it within the context of other citations that what they are discussing is the National Dwarf Fashion Show
  • The link dump was done to show that they were many other articles written about the National Dwarf Fashion Show and their placement in external links was only temporarily and they will soon be incorporated as citations within the article
  • Besides the press coverage (I will address your comments later regarding them and fixing the links now) The Dwarf Fashion Show has collaborated with Donnons leur une chance (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donnons_leur_une_chance) and show cased Lena Hoschek (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lena_Hoschek) spring collection. Both the organization and the designer have a wikipedia page and are there for notable according to wikipedia guidelines. Since they collaborated and show cased work that should help with The Nation Dwarf Fashion Show's notability.

Nerdypunkkid (talk) 07:34, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Because of your past history of spam and creating excessively promotional articles ([24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] etc.) I've kept your talk page on my watchlist, which brought this article to my attention. If you feel this is WP:WIKIHOUNDING or is otherwise inappropriate, you are free to seek dispute resolution or bring it up at WP:ANI.
As for the sources, you do not need to use Chrome to use Google Translate. The reason I asked was because relying on Google Translate is not great, and is a common pitfall. See WP:MACHINETRANSLATION and WP:NONENG. Google translate and similar are often wrong or stilted or misleading. All of the template:cites includes fields for translated titles ("trans-title=" I think), but the original untranslated title should always be included first and foremost. If the link goes dead, the original title is what is used to track down the source, not the translated version which is often stilted or just wrong.
The French or German Wikipedias' notability guidelines do not automatically apply to this Wikipedia. Not everything on a non-English Wikipedia is expected to be translated (see WP:TRANSLATION). The French article especially has serious sourcing problems itself, and regardless, having worked with a notable organization doesn't confer notability (WP:NOTINHERITED). The sources are still overwhelmingly focused on individual shows, not the larger organization, and the indiscriminate nature of the links is Wikipedia:Bombardment, which doesn't comply with WP:RS and WP:N guidelines.
I eventually got the Mirror article load. It's very, very vague. It includes no details about the organization of the show, and doesn't even explain where the show happened. Additionally, as this AP blurb makes clear, this was a student show held at FOM University of Applied Sciences for Economics and Management, a school which apparently doesn't grant any fashion-related degrees. It's usable, but very weak. Grayfell (talk) 01:26, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - fails notability per WP:GNG. I am not finding significant coverage. The article is not well written (almost entirely fluff) and gives no specifics whatsoever. In the lede it says "The National Dwarf Fashion Show is a company" and then in the next section says "The National Dwarf Fashion Show is an event." I don't know if it is an event, such as one that might be held annually, or if it simply is a fashion company that provides models for other events, such as NY/Paris Fashion Week etc. But I didn't find significant coverage either way. By the way, there are many editors on the English Wikipedia who are fluent in French or German, so that is not an issue. МандичкаYO 😜 11:12, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Contesting the deletion
Based on my understanding and reviewing the references, the national dwarf fashion show is a separate entity from CBH which is like the founding father of The national dwarf fashion show. It might be confusing as the national dwarf fashion show designates in its appellation an event while being a legal entity.
Being polyglotte, I was able to dissect the media coverage received by the national dwarf fashion show and the one received in France is comparatively bigger than the one received in the USA as TF1, france 24, JDD are well established and pillars in the news domain. The national dwarf fashion show has made a significative impact by widening the field of modelling to women disabled by dwarfism — Preceding unsigned comment added by Philanthropiste75 (talkcontribs) 14:56, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

The lawyers employed by this company, particularly Michael Wildes, certainly seem notable, and there is a depth of coverage from multiple sources. As for the firm he is employed by, I have been unable to find even one reliable source which discusses "Wildes & Weinberg" (not just its lawyers). Their is trivial mention of the firm's name, and the firm does not automatically inherit the notability of those employed by it. Magnolia677 (talk) 01:03, 18 July 2015 (UTC) Magnolia677 (talk) 01:03, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep. "Wildes & Weinberg" is mentioned here, here, here, and here, just to list a few sources I found after one search. More importantly though, the firm is notable because of the number of high profile cases it has dealt with, most of which are listed here. Though Michael Wildes is the most famous lawyer at the firm, he doesn't make the firm notable--the cases and clients the firm represents are what makes it notable. Obviously since Michael Wildes is the managing partner, his page lists those cases--but they are really the firms' cases. Much as Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher lists it's notable cases, Wildes & Weinberg should too. Ashershow1talkcontribs 01:45, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

Comment - While I am grateful to User_talk:Ashershow1 for taking the time to provide those external links, I tend to agree with User:Rpclod. I have summarized below the contribution each external link listed above might make to enhancing the notability of the article Wildes & Weinberg:
  • [31] - This article is an interview with Michael Wildes, a notable partner at the firm. In the article, just three sentences are devoted to the firm--Wildes & Weinberg--the topic of this Wikipedia article. The first sentence is about the range of corporate clients and services; the second and third sentence list the firm's "distinguished clientele".
  • [32] - The extent of coverage about Wildes & Weinberg in this article is as follows: "Michael Wildes, managing partner of Wildes & Weinberg, a New York City-based immigration law firm, said in an email that some of his clients were losing hope. "Many are hesitating to move forward," he said."

  • Google Translate can give you the jist enough to know if the subject is being discussed in depth in reliable sources. FYI the Chinese-language Wikipedia is not great; there is a Chinese knockoff of Wikipedia called Baidu Baike that is HUGELY popular (11.5 million articles - the English-language Wikipedia has only 4.5 million or so... though Baidu is a lot less strict than Wikipedia) and Meici has an article there.[40] МандичкаYO 😜 03:37, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
  • It might be helpful if that link was pointing to the article on Baidu Baike [41] rather than Hudong Baike. But like other language Wikipedias, both online user-generated encyclopedias have different inclusion thresholds so comparing them is about as useful as suggesting that WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. Especially when neither article includes secondary sources to meet the notability criteria for this encyclopedia. None of the references above refer to the company as "China's largest online retailer for authentic luxury goods" (the first link is dead, the next two mention investments from Sanpower and the last discusses its recent 7th anniversary) and the University of Pennsylvania source does not state that "China has very few online retailers" - the article discusses (in English) the lack of online presence from Chinese high street stores. The first claim is dubious at best, the second (as stated in the UPenn source - Hundreds of other players are tussling for the remainder of the market) is patently wrong.

Non-notable actor lacking non-trivial support. References are generally passing mentions. Appears to be WP:TOOSOON. reddogsix (talk) 04:39, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep: I believe Hughes qualifies as a notable actor. She was the lead in V/H/S/2, which was a very profitable and known film in the horror genre. The franchise is relatively young and already has three installments. It went to Sundance. She's had roles in many of Adam Wingard's movies (even the title role in the case of the Laura Panic films). Her other features had festival play, which I cited as well.
There are multiple citations specifically about her and/or interviewing her. They are from notable sources. There are several citations that only have a sentence or two about her, however I would rather over-cite the entry than not provide enough information.
I also took into consideration the individual's tech background when considering notability. Hughes was a publicly known Apple employee, which was even more rare at the time than it is now. The tour guide videos were highly visible. Her video production work at Apple as well as the other infamous companies lends to her notability. Allison419 (talk) 06:52, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Article topic lacks significant coverage from reliable, independent sources. (?) It had no meaningful hits in a video game reliable sources custom Google search, only PR.

Kanem-Bornu Empire[edit]

(Find sources: "Kanem-Bornu Empire" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

These articles are redundant forking, or possibly a PoV fork due to conflicting ethnic and historical viewpoints, with multiple different articles for the same state. I would prefer that the Kanem Empire and Bornu Empire would be deleted, or merged with Kanem-Bornu Empire. Depending on the consensus however, the Kanem-Bornu Empire may have to go instead. I would be willing to rewrite the article(s) about this African country, but the fork(s) have to go first. Chronology of the Sefuwa (Kanem-Bornu) is another fork that has to go for sure, as Sayfawa dynasty already exists with the exactly same content. Ceosad (talk) 19:59, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment: The issue here is that both the Kanem Empire and the Bornu Empire coexisted during Scramble for Africa for about something like six or seven years according to these articles, so keeping them separate might be justified, as you suggest. However, for most of their history, they were the same state ruled by the Kanuri Sayfawa dynasty originally from Kanem, that just lost and regained their territories across the centuries. (Kanem was invaded, and inhabited, by the Toubou.) Kanem-Bornu is an artificial name invented by historians. I would rather compare Kanem-Bornu to Mughal Empire, that lost its homeland in Fergana, than to Byzantine Empire. We do not need separate articles for "early East Roman Empire" and "late Byzantine Empire". (There is one article for Nicaean Empire thought.) This is why I would prefer to keep Kanem-Bornu Empire, and delete the Kanem Empire and Bornu Empire. Keeping Kanem Empire and Bornu Empire separate might help avoid some horrible future fork for a post-1388 Toubou ruled Kanem state though, as it can be argued that there were multiple different states with the name of Kanem Empire... The map you referred to was Kanem-Bornu Empire before Toubou invasion in 1370s. There is a third (and a horribly bad) way out of this: Keeping articles for both Kanem-Bornu Empire and Kanem Empire, but deleting Bornu Empire. This is a quite a complex problem here with the forks... Ceosad (talk) 20:42, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

August 2[edit]

NEW NOMINATIONS[edit]

Category:Ipswich heritage citations[edit]

Nominator's rationale: This doesn't seem a useful category as it is only based on a local study. Is also not consistent with other similar categories. I suggest that scope should be changed to include notable items only and the category be renamed either "Heritage listed buildings in Ipswich" or "Ipswich Local Heritage Register". ELEKHHT 12:14, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Wikipedians from the Cook Islands[edit]

Nominator's rationale: Only user in the category hasn't edited since April 2010. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 11:17, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Paraná Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology[edit]

Nominator's rationale: single-member category Fgnievinski (talk) 03:43, 2 August 2015 (UTC)



Redirects[edit]

August 2[edit]

Kia[edit]

Re-targeting: The redirect is not entirely identified on the target article Kia Motors. I propose the new target article KIA (disambiguation). Sawol (talk) 07:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Previous Sheffield Tigers Seasons[edit]

Delete. Per WP:CONCISE, I've moved the target to Sheffield Tigers seasons. They can't go out of date in the same way that "Next..." ones can, though. Stats are at noise level, the only use was in article space was in the Sheffield Tigers article. Si Trew (talk) 07:09, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep as this appears to be a redirect which is used and one which cannot go out of date unlike 'Next' ones. This appears to be a plausible search term. Rubbish computer 11:23, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Mashin' Duck Records[edit]

Not too sure this should redirect to Eminem. The only mention of this is in an infobox saying that this was one the record labels that he used (looks like in the mid 90s?). The name is also used at Soul Intent, Bass Brothers, Soul Intent (group), and Bassmint Productions. Since there is no content about the label at any of these places, I don't these redirects are helpful, if anything they're inhibiting searches. As such, I think it should be WP:REDLINKED so that someone searching for it can pick which article they want since all of those names will come up in the search engine. Also, this was deleted before, but as an article. See: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mashin' Duck Records. -- Tavix (talk) 06:46, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Keene West[edit]

Delete as an implausible misspelling. I couldn't find any sources misspell his name in this manner. -- Tavix (talk) 06:06, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

The Toxic Avenger (2015 film)[edit]

"The Toxic Avenger" is a 1984 film. There is a section discussing a rumored remake, but as you can tell, it wasn't released in 2014 and won't be released in 2015. Delete per (a faulty) WP:CRYSTALBALL. -- Tavix (talk) 05:58, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom and because generates unnecessary confusion. Rubbish computer 11:20, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Next Bloc Quebecois leadership election[edit]

Delete. It isn't a good idea to have a redirect of the format "next (event)" as it will require maintenance, or in this case, remain outdated -- Tavix (talk) 05:34, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • delete per nom and general consensus on "Next..." redirects. Si Trew (talk) 07:18, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete per above points. Rubbish computer 11:24, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Trillionaire[edit]

Delete. Not at target. This is a bit different from those at #Quadrillionaire, not only in its target but that there is a page at Trillionaire (song) to which the target hatnotes. There's no need, the song can be WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. While I could make a technical speedy deletion request per WP:G6 "Deleting redirects or other pages blocking page moves", I hesitate to do so while we have all these others here. Si Trew (talk) 04:20, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Parallels Desktop[edit]

Parallels Desktop runs on more than just Macs. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 02:07, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep. In the absence of articles about Parallels Desktop for other platforms, this is the best target. Si Trew (talk) 04:24, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete per WP:REDLINK to encourage article creation. Rubbish computer 11:31, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep. per Si Trew – while there are guest OSs, it looks like this one's mainly for MAC and likely will be the only article written on the subject. It does seem that the article should be at the redirect and vice versa; however, to maintain status quo is acceptable. – Paine  12:17, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Quadrillionaire[edit]

This is a strange redirect it should be deleted along with quintillionaire, sextillionaire, septillionaire, octillionaire, nonillionaire and decillionaire which all redirect to millionaire. Marsbar8 (talk) 01:49, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete all Who has a quadrillion dollars? Implausible search terms. Rubbish computer 11:28, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
There might be some Zimbabwean quadrillionares c. 2008. Check out Hyperinflation in Zimbabwe. -- Tavix (talk) 02:09, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
@Tavix: You are right but I cannot see this being a plausible search term. Rubbish computer 11:26, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete, except for maybe a few hyperinflation examples, there aren't any "quadrillionares." Since none of these examples are mentioned in the article, it's confusing. -- Tavix (talk) 02:09, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment. I've added the others to the nom (and tagged them at their pages). Si Trew (talk) 04:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
I got an edit conflict because I was doing the same thing... I'm also adding Quazillionaire and Gazillionaire for the same reasons. -- Tavix (talk) 04:27, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about that. We must have been coming in different directions as I added the tags at the redirect pages before adding the entries here, which I imagine you would have seen as you went through them, so I doubt you wasted too much work. Si Trew (talk) 04:40, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
No problem at all. I saw the tags, but I just assumed that Marsbar8 added them. -- Tavix (talk) 05:08, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete as above. Si Trew (talk) 04:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
Most are at noise level, but Quadrillion slightly more, and Gazillionaire got 12 hits on 11 July for no reason I can discern from internal evidence (history etc.) Si Trew (talk) 05:22, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Religious reformer[edit]

Implausible target, and cannot identify at this time a likely one. Religious reformers are not exclusively Protestant, or even Christian. DuncanHill (talk) 00:11, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

But contradicting what I've just said, Reformation (disambiguation)#Movements (the first section) lists also Islamic Reformation, Catholic Reformation and Radical Reformation as non-protestant religious reformations – as well as several branches of the protestant reformation movement – so it's possible we could send it there.
So Weak delete as confusing, but I can see Reformation (disambiguation)#Movements as a possible retarget. Si Trew (talk) 04:36, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Retarget to Reformation (disambiguation)#Movements per Si Trew – ambiguous phrase synonymous with Religious reformation. Since we lack such a general article on the subject, the suggested target will take most readers where they want to go. – Paine  12:57, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
