Couldn't find much in the way of sources (except this Pitchfork review), and it doesn't really have any info that isn't already in the Life Is Full of Possibilities article anyway. StewdioMACK (talk) 14:28, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Suggest merge of info and redirect to album page, if the active contributor cannot improve the subject article until a certain period. I haven't researched the subject that much, but it appears to me that the song was "instrumental" to the band's creation. I found few notable mentions (in retrospect) such as in Billboard 1, Billboard 2, Entertainment Weekly, and MTV. --Efe (talk) 15:02, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Merge to album. I don't think it would have been contested even without a discussion. Reviews generally put the single in context of Possibilities or of the Postal Service's founding, but there's little in depth on the EP or track itself enough to warrant its own page besides AllMusic, Pitchfork, and Brainwashed. Billboard notes it as the standout track on Possibilities. AllMusic agrees. BBC calls it the "indie single of the year". And Pitchfork ranks it within the top 250 tracks of the decade. A.V. Club passing mention. Anyway, best off merged unless someone can dig up more reviews (especially in offline sources)! – czar 15:52, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

List of accredited schools of naturopathic medicine in North America[edit]

List of accredited schools of naturopathic medicine in North America (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(‹See Tfm› Find sources: "List of accredited schools of naturopathic medicine in North America" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

The topic is extremely narrow in relevance, which seems to fail to meet WP:Notability and to violate WP:Overcategorization. There is also some confusion about the criterion "accredited." The U.S. Department of Education accredits the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME),[1] which is then independently tasked to accredit naturopathic programs. Therefore, to reflect this reality, the title should be changed to reflect that they are accredited by CNME. This would make the article even more overcategoried. There is also a separate accreditation offered by another naturopathic organization, The American Naturopathic Medical Accreditation Board, which has accredited seven schools in the U.S. and Canada.[2] I do not think it is relevant to have a page dedicated to naturopathic programs accredited by any organization.

Non-notable martial artist. Essentially a biography written by a near relative. The only source is the subjects own website. The list of titles which at first glance look impressive are not supported by any reliable references and are only from a particular branch of karate. High rank is not an indicator of notability but the subject is only a 2nd degree black belt - not that impressive. This was up for a BLPPROD but was declined since at the time I proposed it there was a source (reliable or not). Should have gone a different route. Does not meet WP:MANOTE or WP:GNG.

" [2] also. [3] obit in New York Times. " Malcolm Kenneth Gordon, who taught history and hockey to boys 75 years ago — and gave his final lecture only last year —died yesterday at his home here. He was 96 years old." I suggest a person in a notable hall of fame is notable - and the fact is he made the NYT.

(‹See Tfm› Find sources: "Sydney underground railways" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

The purpose of this page is unclear. It doesn't contain any unique information, instead providing a summary of information on discrete elements of the Sydney rail network. This creates a problem in keeping the information up-to-date. From the history, it appears the original concept behind this page was to provide information on urban caving in Sydney more than anything else – hardly encyclopaedic. Unlike London, Sydney lacks a separate "underground" railway system – many suburban lines are partially in tunnel. Mqst north (talk) 11:01, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep The article would certainly benefit from a better title and a general spruce up, but the topic is clearly viable: lots has been written about the underground stations, underground components of the various lines, and the proposals to build new underground/semi-underground lines.

Comment Certainly it is a viable topic, but every topic you list above has a more logical home: the station articles, the line articles, and Proposed railways in Sydney. Separating that information out here doesn't add to the reader's understanding of the topic: at best – and the article is clearly not in this state – it is a collection of content duplicated from other articles.

*Keep The startup gets as much coverage online as is possible here in India and does feature quite a bit on paper. It might also be worth considering that the website is the top price comparison website in India and is much more popular (ranked 95th on alexa in India) than closest competitor Jungee (291st on alexa in India) by Amazon.com. So considering this and the reasonable amount of coverage online, I'd still suggest to keep the page. 49.205.250.157 (talk) 23:46, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Paid press release. No notability except with respect to [[Actua[]], which is mildly notable, and the bulk of the material here duplicates the material there. This sort of duplication is a hallmark of promotional editing.

The material is what one would expect in a press release: praise of the organization, unsourced adjectives of praise , appeals to the intrinsic social value of the work, the typical jargon . Long sections of just where she has presented lectures -- and presenting lectures not only doesn't show notability but is usually not even mentioned if the person is actually notable. List of board memberships, which again is not usually worth mentioning. List of organizations where she has volunteered. All of this is essentially puffery . If the person were actually highly notable, the puffery could be removed, but in this case there would be nothing much left.

The refs are mainly about her organization, not her, and most of them are in any case press releases or mere mentions.

There are thousands of articles like this in WP accepted in earlier years when the standards were lower. It may take a long while for us to remove them, but the least we can do is not add to them.

  • Strong keep: "List of songs..." and "... discography" articles are completely different in content, and one shouldn't be used as the others reasoning for deletion. If it were the case, lists like List of songs recorded by Ariana Grande would be deleted, instead of being granted featured list status. A large majority of the entries are not covered in the discography, and although the article is in dire state, the fact it's an unsourced article is not a viable reason for its deletion, merely a cry for help for a cleanup.

This event, originally described as a "history-making event" in which the first FAA-approved drone was used to make a delivery, appears more to be a research/demonstration event in the FAA's ongoing efforts to investigate the uses of drone technology. It was a single research demonstration event, not a "history-making breakthrough". As such, I don't believe it deserves its own stand-alone article.

Highly promotional and at best borderline notable. (It might be possible to merge a single short paragraph to the university, but the merge was objected to.) The refs are notices or PR--even the article in theTelegraph is essentially a press release. Promotional language and unsourced adjectives of phrase throughout; long list of their services, extensive use of jargon. Note that this is not Oxford University , but the school formerly known as Oxford City Technical School. Lack of notability is not the only reason for deletion. Borderline notability combined with clear promotionalism is an equally good reason. Small variations to the notability standard either way do not fundamentally harm the encycopedia, but accepting articles that are part of a promotional campaign causes great damage.

  • Unsure but maybe redirect to Oxford Brookes University#Specialist Study where it is mentioned - I wanted to hear from other people until commenting but my searches didn't find much sources here, here, here, here and here. SwisterTwister talk 03:32, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - The nominator includes one distinctly bad reason for deletion and, in my opinion, rather overstates his main reason. Whether a British university was already a university before 1992 or was, like Oxford Brookes University, up until then (or later) a polytechnic or college can still correlate fairly well (though not totally) with their current standing - but what they were called in or before the 1960s is effectively irrelevant. In league tables, Oxford Brookes tends to come through slightly below average for all British universities and among the better former polytechnics. And even borderline notability should trump promotionalism - provided that the article not only can be, but is, rewritten to show that notability without any of the promotionalism. Having said that, it comes nowhere near saving this article. The best research centres at an average British university would probably be considered to be average or somewhat below at Oxford University (and be rather unlikely to be notable enough for a standalone article) - but a check on Research Excellence Framework results and Oxford Brookes's own webpages suggests that it does not even come close to this. It is apparently one of three research centres within Oxford Brookes's Faculty of Health and Life Sciences - but the Faculty seems to have completely ignored it when making its REF submission (which itself was not one of the best from Oxford Brookes). While it might be possible for Oxford Brookes to have a research centre notable enough for a standalone article, this clearly isn't it. PWilkinson (talk) 09:45, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete I'm saying delete because this concept has not received any independent critical coverage. There is no evidence that anybody will remember this term a year from now. I would not be opposed to having an article if the article could clearly state that the concept has not yet been validated, but Wikipedia's policies make that very difficult: it is impossible to find reliable secondary sources to substantiate the fact that there are no reliable secondary sources. Looie496 (talk) 13:45, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Strong delete, as there is not enough evidence this will become a widely used term. WP:NEO and WP:TOOSOON obviously apply here, and merging/redirecting is moot at this point. The primary source is so recent it hasn't even been cited once for crying out loud! Wikipedia is not a news outlet. FoCuS contribs; talk to me! 20:33, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
  • keep The sources are adequate to show the phenomenon as a reasonable scientific hypothesis. WP covers such hypotheses; they need to be recognized and discussed before we can cover them, but they don't have to actually be proven true, as long as the article correctly states the status. The sources for this are high ranking scientific journals, and that is all that is necessary for biology. There is however a problem with the terminology--I doubt very mush this will end upas the accepted term, but we need some place to keep the material. Just as Umami was for a long while referred to as the fifth taste until its nature became more defined, and it became accepted as corresponding to a preexisting Japanese term, I suggest sixth taste as a temporary place-holder. DGG ( talk ) 04:56, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
    • DGG Per your words: "WP covers such hypotheses; they need to be recognized and discussed before we can cover them". This is exactly what we don't have. There is a single study that has proposed this term, and it hasn't even been cited once (it was published last month; I exclude the Time article from my analysis because in the world we live today this sort of thing is easy and catchy reading {see this and this}). If the term is subsequently discussed in the literature, then of course Wikipedia could use an article about it. The fact of the matter is it is too new even to have been discussed appropriately. We can't include this at present per WP:FRINGE. As it stands, this is a single article summary; if there is significant coverage about it at a later point, then I'd gladly see it created again. FoCuS contribs; talk to me! 19:39, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
      There's an inherent problem in this: in science, it takes time to write and publish a paper--normally at least 6 months. In contrast, for films or books, a review can come out the same day the item is published, if not earlier. But there are already news items about it: the article give Time and Science News; I see also NPR and the Guardian. Public interest in a hypothesis is just as significant forus as scientific interest (the special restrictions of MEDRS have their place, but this is human biology, not clinical medicine.) This is unlikely to be ignored--using common snese, there is fairly certain to be work either confirming or refuting it. DGG ( talk ) 21:14, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
      Should we have articles on beer goggles, neurotic people being more creative, autism and gluten, and cricket swings and weather? FoCuS contribs; talk to me! 19:33, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Keep I find it hard to classify this as a "science" article at all, and it has absolutely nothing to do with medicine. It's really no more scientific than Scoville scale or Pungency or Sweetness. I am unimpressed by the assertion that we should delete the article because the peer-review cycle is too slow to have already produced "discussions in the [scientific] literature" about what food tastes like. That's the biggest problem with this proposal IMO: this is being treated like it's some sort of medical project, and it's not. This is about eating. IMO these are acceptable sources for this point in time. Additionally, there is quite a bit here (e.g., the sourced history section) that could be merged to Taste#Fattiness, if we someday decide not to keep it as a separate article. WhatamIdoing (talk) 16:13, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Unrelated sources. Eat me, I'm a red bean (discusscontribs) 13:29, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

The article does not contravene any of the policies and guidelines listed as reasons to delete an article. All statements are factual and all cite references contain reinvent material to back up the statements. There an no unrelated sources. A Soho walk up is an entity that people discuss and visit and it is therefore something that one would expect to be able to find out about in an encyclopaedia. A simple Google of the subject quickly demonstrates its existence and that it is a part of London culture. For all of the above reasons I reject this call for deletion.--Timnic (talk) 16:35, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Non-notable person, fails WP:GNG and WP:BIO. She is only mentioned once in the cited source, and that's in the appendix (which is just a list of hundreds of different people who were mentioned in the Venona Cables) rather than in the body of the text. Her name appears in a couple of other sources, but usually only as part of a similar list of people mentioned in the cables. This does not meet the threshold for significant coverage in reliable sources which is required to make someone notable - it's simply a passing mention. More generally, having been a communist, having worked for OSS, or having been a Soviet contact does not in itself make her notable, especially absent significant coverage in RS.

The second paragraph of the article appears to be OR, and is drawn from a primary source (the one cable that mentions her).

Non-notable company because all my searches found nothing all and although someone added the company was actually not closed, the listed website is still closed and the LinkedIn-listed website is also closed. The closest relevant thing I found was this and some Books searches found results for a company from the 1960s and 1970s and since it seems this company was founded in 2009, it must not be that one and finally there are no signs of improvement.

  • Comment. This article has existed since 2004, was the subject of some rather intense edit wars in its early history, and was the subject of an AfD discussion in 2006 (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nguyen Phuc Buu Chanh), which was a fairly easy Keep but at a time when WP:BLP standards were far looser than they are now. While the article has never had any inline sourcing, earlier versions of the article do contain external links which might (or might not) be usable as sources. Also, some earlier versions of the article contain unsourced but potentially credible claims of significance which, if verified, might suggest that the subject's claims could have a limited basis in decisions by ex-emperor Bảo Đại towards the end of his life, though if so they were either never accepted or interpreted very differently by Bảo Đại's family. Basically, I am seeing enough potential leads from previous versions of the article that one or other of them might just establish notability, but not enough likelihood of this to search further.

WP:BLP of a county supervisor, written extremely like a campaign brochure (my new worst thing ever: politicians whose articles give the names of their pets in the family section) and parked on abysmal sourcing. Almost everything here is a primary source, and a lot of them are deadlinked at that — and the closest thing to a reliable source is a single PBS Newshour piece (reduplicated as sources #4 and #7 for no apparent reason) in which he gets passingly namechecked as a soundbite provider in a report where he is not the subject. Actually, forget the dog and the cat: new even-worse thing ever, this actually tries to get away with sourcing to an internet talk radio stream in ref #16 (and not to any archive of that stream's content by which we can verify what was said, either, but just to the fresh live stream.) All of which means that nothing here is substantive enough, or sourced well enough, to make him eligible for an article under WP:NPOL #3. Delete. Bearcat (talk) 03:51, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

His name is only mentioned in passing in the cited source, that's in the appendix (which is just a list of hundreds of different people mentioned in the Venona Cables) rather than in the text itself.

Following on from Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/IFA Paris, this appears to be another unaccredited fashion school; sources are variously unreliable and vague mentions. Stifle (talk) 10:09, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment. Disclaimer: I did a bit of work on this last year after removing some major copyright violations there, and added a number of references. I did so because I was sure it would be found to be notable if sent to AfD – it had already survived once. I don't care one way or the other whether it is kept, but I'm certain it's notable; here's the Manchester Guardian describing it as "one of Europe's leading design schools" and saying that it "has played a pivotal role in the growth of the Italian fashion industry". It has innumerable passing mentions, and in-depth coverage in a number of independent reliable sources, a couple of which I have now added to the page. It's not clear to me whether or how it is able to award degrees in Italy, as it is not recognised by the Ministero dell'istruzione, dell'università e della ricerca (in common with many other private schools; state recognition is a high bar in Italy). In England it is a listed body, and is listed as such by the Higher Education Funding Council for England. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 16:52, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

A neologism of questionable popularity, cited from a single author. Staszek Lem (talk) 19:23, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete, no evidence there's anything to this - David Gerard (talk) 15:24, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose, but rename to something less neological, like "Mind uploading and spaceflight". It indeed seems like that author is the single one using that term - the subject however has enough coverage for it to be featured (e.g. see these: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). --Fixuture (talk) 21:37, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
    • Might as well start a new article under that name - David Gerard (talk) 11:30, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
      • If you find reliable sources which discuss this concept, otherwise this will be WP:SYNTH: "a" + "bc". This current article is based solely on two blogs of the same person. Not to say that even the Golden Age of Science Fiction have already beaten the author mightily: plenty of stories how an alien starship arrives and then bam! aliens are 'uploaded' to the Earth without any boredom of sitting in a 'ship at all, in any forms: into your brain, into mechanical devices, into animals, etc., etc. Staszek Lem (talk) 21:43, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
        • Well the sources I listed discuss exactly this concept. But as said they don't use the term "uploaded astronaut" hence my suggestion to rename it. Will further look into this later (probably this weekend) and maybe also dig up some more sources in addition to those listed above.
>Not to say that even the Golden Age of Science Fiction have already beaten the author mightily: plenty of stories how an alien starship arrives and then bam! aliens are 'uploaded' to the Earth without any boredom of sitting in a 'ship at all, in any forms: into your brain, into mechanical devices, into animals, etc., etc.
Well he's not claiming to be the first having that idea (and mind you, it's no contest; the article actually doesn't even mention him). That's another reason for notability by the way. I also think that the "In science fiction" section could be expanded by quite a bit (or maybe even merged into the lede right away). Other than that I doubt that many writers of the Golden Age of Science Fiction had a concept close to nowadays "mind uploading" (the concept basically elaborated in co-ordinance with the technological development in the realm of IT and the neuroscientific advances [even though both aren't even close to making the concept of mind uploading feasible in the near future - it's about the imagination...applied in science fiction and elsewhere]). --Fixuture (talk) 22:30, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
re "technological development" - you are talking about a specific implementation. Implementation may vary, but the basic idea is the same: mind changes its incarnation in other location. And I fail to see what's the nontrivial difference: whether it is a spaceship or the very destination or a computer game or whatever.Staszek Lem (talk) 01:29, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

(‹See Tfm› Find sources: "Machine Intelligence Research Institute" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR)

The Machine Intelligence Research Institute is hard to find wp:reliable sources for, while according to the appropriate category (Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies)), at least 2 relevant sources, having the organization as its prime subject, are needed. In addition to my own (unsuccesful) search for sources, the links on this page are dead, link to its own page, to advertisements or to directory-like websites L.tak (talk) 21:08, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

  • NB:nominated before at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Singularity Institute
  • Automated comment: This AfD was not correctly transcluded to the log (step 3). I have transcluded it to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2015 August 24. —cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 21:31, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment: I'd have thought they were surely notable, but two profiles on the organisation would be an interesting one to put together. The referencing in the article as it stands is indeed dreadful and mostly-primary and needs an immediate cleanout, if only to make it clear what actualy substance there is under the chaff. It's easy enough to find those on related matters (LessWrong, HPMOR, Roko's Basilisk) but not so much on MIRI/SI/SIAI itself. I'd be very surprised if two in the fifteen years it's existed couldn't be found, though - David Gerard (talk) 22:09, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. It's clearly notable enough. There's too much press coverage to list all of it here, but see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. If you're asking why there's not that many reliable articles about the organization itself it's because their topic / what they are saying is of public interest more so than the organization itself.
Not sure why it was nominated, it passes Wikipedia:Notability_(organizations_and_companies)#Primary_criteria: A company, corporation, organization, school, team, religion, group, product, or service is notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in secondary sources. Such sources must be reliable, and independent of the subject. A single independent source is almost never sufficient for demonstrating the notability of an organization. Check. Especially see: The depth of coverage of the subject by the source must be considered. If the depth of coverage is not substantial, then multiple independent sources should be cited to establish notability.
But yes the article probably needs some cleanup. Going to fix all the dead refs tomorrow or so. --Fixuture (talk) 22:00, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Those cites are mostly not actually about MIRI at all, but about Elon Musk's new organisation in the same field, and we do need cites actually about MIRI - passing mentions really aren't enough.

I see that you nominated the article 'Inna discography' for deletion. Well, it contains much information about her chart peaks and certifications throughout her seven years of career. You're right about some dubious links, but do not delete the article immediately(!!!!!!); let me know what poblems you found on Inna's discography page, so I can fix it for you!! I can explain you the things you discussed in "Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Inna discography": "LatINNA" is not the title of one of her albums: It is just the former name of her now-renamed full-length record INNA (The title was simply renamed from LatINNA to INNA). There is no album by her named "The Romantic Collection", it's just an unofficially collection of her tracks that premiered on an illegal website. And finally, the "Summer Days EP" was supposed to be released, but never was. Thus, most of the track released from it were included on Inna's actual album INNA. Have any questions?- Then simply ask me!

Indiscriminate list. There's no evidence that "people above 130" or "people below 130" or any other page is a distinguishing characteristics other than the current oldest person ever was 122 so this is all claims that are eight years more (and I'm presuming as said to be not real). The contents are basically a merger of an assortment from Longevity myths and Longevity claims. Ricky81682 (talk) 06:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Maybe delete as although this is a challenging one, this is not a widespread and confirmed topic with most of these occurring thousands years ago and there's not even much information here. At best, this would be best mentioned elsewhere although I can imagine someone eventually suggesting a separate article. It seems most of the previous AfD commenters are not active so I'm notifying the only still active one Robofish. SwisterTwister talk 06:45, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Merge to Longevity myths. At the previous AFD in 2011 I noted that those two articles are redundant, and that still seems to be the case. 'Longevity myths' is probably the one to keep as it has a more general scope, and the claims listed in this article can be merged in. (Or at least some of them: I'm not sure we need to list every single person claimed to have lived to an unnatural age, but the general topic is clearly notable.)

My searches simply found nothing to suggest better sourcing and the best results I found were this. There are only two move targets one of them being Mogubai Kurdikar (which simply mentions he was a student) but this suggests sourcing may be archived and offline but that's not going to save the article at this moment and the article hasn't improved much (outside adding an infobox) since starting in July 2007.

I don't think there's sufficient notability from being a mere pretender or just being a holder of a claim of longevity.

This sounds interesting and seems to be somewhat well known locally but my searches found no outstandingly good sources (searches here, here, here and here) and their best coverage may have been the 2007 book burning. SwisterTwister talk 06:02, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment The book burning actually got a lot of coverage. Local radio coverage from last year [12], Local News coverage (not related to book burning) from this year [13]. It meets at least WP:CORPDEPTH for such a small company since. WP:AUD is the real decision here, it has had national/international coverage in addition to continued regional coverage, but the most substantional national coverage is for one event. WP:LOCAL is pretty convincing to make a keep for locally known places that have had at least one nationally known notable thing. It also pops up on tons of travel/tourist stuff for KC, which isn't an official criteria might make people wonder why it's listed so they might look it up here. I think that since it's written pretty neutrally it should probably be kept. If it was promotional I'd probably be biased against it.--Savonneux (talk) 06:34, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

This woman's entire notability is that she was mistaken for being the oldest living American but in fact was the oldest living Floridian at her death. Regardless of the sourcing (mostly related to who was or wasn't the oldest person), any information about separate living is summarized in the biography section at the page for Ronald L. Thompson, her husband. Delete but at best, redirect to her husband's page. Ricky81682 (talk) 05:59, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment The prior discussion went for a weak keep (or more likely a delete or redirect) until the claim was made that she was the world's oldest American, a claim which as discussed is now considered false (showing the precise "scientific" nature of this longevity "studying"). -- Ricky81682 (talk) 06:03, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

    • Organization of purely local notability, with little substance beyond cursory documentation of its existence, and not nearly enough sourcing, to suggest any reason why an international encyclopedia should maintain an article about it. Of the sources cited here, half are primary sources which cannot confer notability, and the other half are local community newsweeklies that aren't widely distributed enough to satisfy WP:GNG if they're the best you can do for sourcing. An organization like this might clear the bar if it accomplished something that was getting it into the Calgary Herald, The Province, the Toronto Star or The Globe and Mail on a regular basis — but if the Leduc Rep is your strongest possible source, then you just haven't satisfied Wikipedia's inclusion standards.

    • Keep As noted in previous AFD (just 3 weeks ago) this has been a major national news story with continuous coverage in Greece for over 3 years where the rape of a local 15-year old by an illegal immigrant became a highly charged signifier at a time of burgeoning political tensions about the enormous wave of illegal immigrants arriving in Greece. Searches on America-based engines can underestimate the impact of events in Europe, especially when transliteration of spellings in different alphabets (Greek, Urdu) is an issue, as it is here. Similarity to Shooting of Kathryn Steinle was also noted in recent AFD.E.M.Gregory (talk) 10:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
    • comment Article is over-sourced because of the recent AFD. Anglophone editors who want to see the sort of place this case occupies in the Greek political conversation can look at this column in [14] Kathimirini a leading Greek newpaper somewaht equivelant to the place th eNew York Times holds in the U.S. (when in Greece, if you pick up the international NYTimes, the English version of Kathimirini comes folded inside).E.M.Gregory (talk) 14:20, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
    The previous AFD resulted in no consensus and a procedural keep, not keep and was fundamentally damaged by your disruptive behaviour of significantly changing the title and content, from a BLP to an event without even bothering to seek consensus. In 2014 24,043 rapes against both men and women were recorded by police forces in England and Wales, with a much higher figure when including unreported rapes and UK wide figures. I don't see you scrambling to create an article for each case. This proves that this article has always been about the immigrant Muslim side. AusLondonder (talk) 15:18, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

    NEW NOMINATIONS[edit]

    Category:Motherwell F.C. captains[edit]

    Nominator's rationale: Delete. Per the discussion about Rangers FC captains, I believe this is a non-defining characteristic and trivial. The defining characteristic of a football player is whether or not they play for a team, not whether they captained it. The team captain in football is largely a ceremonial / honorific role (unlike, say, cricket) and changes frequently between and even during games, due to injuries, suspensions, loss of form, etc.. For most club sides, such as Motherwell FC, there are insufficient resources to accurately record who has captained the team; most statistical sites and books will record appearances and goals, but not necessarily the team captaincy. Jmorrison230582 (talk) 08:57, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

    Category:Horners[edit]

    Nominator's rationale: Delete. Apparently this refers to people from the Horn of Africa region. Horner is an ambiguous term. All of the categories are already within the parent Category:African people. If kept, should perhaps be renamed to Category:People from the Horn of Africa, though I personally don't think it's necessary.Good Ol’factory (talk) 03:54, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

    Category:Chakravartin[edit]

    Nominator's rationale: This is really an unneeded category as it causes more confusion than clears. Most of the articles included don't even mention it, and the worst is that the category gets added to other trees. —SpacemanSpiff 02:26, 31 August 2015 (UTC)



    Redirects[edit]

    August 31[edit]

    Untitled Mike Tyson Biopic[edit]

    Delete per "the untitled problem." There should only be redirects of this fashion if it's an official or common name.

    Wikipedia:Wikipedias in other languages[edit]

    I recently moved the Wikipedia page (an essay) that was at the title of this redirect to its new title; I did this since the title of the redirect does not match the scope of the page. The target page is about differences between this Wikipedia and other Wikipedias; it's not a list of Wikipedias in other languages. On this Wikipedia, the page that lists other Wikipedias is in the article space: List of Wikipedias. So, because of this, the redirect directing to its current target could be considered misleading. Right now, in lieu of suggesting that List of Wikipedias be moved to the "Wikipedia:" namespace, in regards to this redirect, I would say delete since its target article doesn't explain the specific request as stated in the title of this redirect, or weak retarget to List of Wikipedias since that would be the most helpful target (but "weak" since that would in turn make this redirect a WP:CNR, which could be seen as misleading or unhelpful in itself.)

You replied, so saw that post. The redundancy is clear; you forked the template, just to add two parameters, rather than use the solution presented to you in that discussion.

            • I would request that you don't edit my posts, bullet points aren't necessary. And apparently all that hurts it is that the story number would be read once. Alex|The|Whovian 14:51, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
              • I did not "edit your post", which reads exactly as it did previously; I merely fixed the indentation, as I have done here, for respectively, clarity and accessibility. That changes the underlying markup, of which bullet points are just an incidental manifestation, for some users.

    • Weak keep per Djonesuk. --torri2(talk/contribs) 19:18, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
    • @Pigsonthewing: Explain your request for reopening reconsidering the close of this discussion - the result is clearly no consensus. Alex|The|Whovian 10:26, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
    • <col>s and <colgroup>s can't be used on Wikipedia, so Djonesuk's argument about accessibility is not any argument at all; and if a table is not linearly navigable by screen readers, it is fair to call it "harmful". There's no question that {{Doctor Who episode list}} impedes accessibility. The question is whether we care; or whether we care more about collapsing a couple of rows to please the eye.

    Mass killings in capitalist regimes[edit]

    Mass killings in capitalist regimes (talk|edit|history|logs|links|watch) (restore)

    The article has been improved since the previous attempts that judging by the deletion discussions, didn't use the best sources, may have violated NPOV, and other criteria. I'm willing to devote time, with others' help, to making an article up-to-par with the Mass killings under communist regimes one. There are flawed arguments from those against the article in the deletion discussion, such as equating free markets with capitalism, which is erronous. I also put a newpage template on the last-deleted attempt, to give it time to develop, and I was quickly making it up-to-par with Wikipedia standards. I'm very willing to have a constructive discussion with community regarding this article that continously gets deleted. We asked the user who deleted it, and he said to post here. Thanks.

    Toradex[edit]

    The article was provided with a fair number of independent reliable sources, and Toradex has some media coverage's on magazines [15][16][17]. There was no proper consensus to delete. Suniltx (talk) 10:17, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

    • I Endorse the original decision to delete, reached on 26 August 2015. Prior to viewing the archived debate (which I have since done), I preformed my own research on this organization and could not uncover any substantial third-party coverage. In a case such as this, where the only available information can be found at destinations which are (either entirely, or in effect) reproductions of company-issued media releases, I cannot see a clear case for notability under any applicable guideline. It seems that even awards and prizes, issued by the company at various times, have not been independently covered by any reputable outlet within the industry or general media. I believe the closing Administrator's election to end the discussion, although against numerical consensus (as argued above), was founded on solid reasoning and is therefore valid. --UBI-et-ORBI (talk) 10:41, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

    Recommend that Administrators Allow Recreation; new information (including convincing external sources) have been identified in the deletion discussion. These new sources were debated by a small group of editors, however deletion was executed before further opinion could be gathered. This subject area is unique (as the terms of WP:PROF distinctly recognize), and therefore the expanded time which elapsed between the Article's AfD submission and active editorial discourse is natural & fully to be expected — the tags presented at the Article's heading were sufficient to notify Wikipedia readers of this ongoing review, throughout the discussion process. Recreation is both possible and reasonable in the case of this Article. UBI-et-ORBI (talk)

    • Comment: I wasn't personally convinced about the new sources - which ones do you think demonstrate notability? StAnselm (talk) 06:07, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
    Reply: I likewise didn't see much substance at first, but found myself chiefly convinced by (a) his demonstrable role at the L'Abri Fellowship, (b) the the controversy thereof, and (c) his patent collaboration on other published works within his (albeit niche) academic community, as cited on the XfD Page. I believe it's important we judge his impact relative to the scale of the said community, and not on the scale of spiritual scholarship in toto (which would be quite a high bar for one to achieve). --UBI-et-ORBI (talk) 06:25, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
