What does everyone think about just moving the talk page section for ongoing rescue articles to a talk sub-page and transcluding it at the top of the discussion? I think that would keep editing cleaner and allow for a distinction between discussions about the project and discussions about the articles. FWIW, I think discussion about the articles is a great idea (much better than listing them on the project page). Protonk (talk) 01:38, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Great idea! Done and transcluded. Banjeboi 11:51, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Awesome. Thanks. that works great. Protonk (talk) 21:28, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Link to Wikipedia:Article Rescue Squadron on Template:AfDM

Has anyone tried to get a link to Wikipedia:Article Rescue Squadron on Template:AfDM the main AfD template? Inclusionist (talk) 21:53, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't think I would support this, If AfD was working correctly, very few articles would need rescue, perhaps if this project grows exponentially or folks at AfD can't convince certain editors to rethink their using AfD outside the scope of intent this may make more sense. Banjeboi 00:12, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

How active is this WP? Link to discussion in your scope

If your proposal were to happen (a CSD waiting period) the project could be expanded to include those articles, but right now ARS is simply for articles that have made it to AfD. My guess is tht it would depend on the time period involved. CSD's often happen too quickly to get enough people to look at them for rescuing. Jim Miller See me | Touch me 00:15, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Please contribute to current discussion on the AfD for Prince Chunk.--DrWho42 (talk) 20:16, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Added to list or not, I feel it's important to point out that contributiong to the discussion is not the point of the ARS, and indeed goes counter to that point. This is the suicide squad that improves articles during AfDs, and I'm proud to note that the last request (okay, that I know of) for keeps made on this page drew none.
But we can take a look at the article, sure.--Kizor 17:53, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Resolved: deleted


Resolved: From the AfD closing statement: "This article does not meet notability criteria and thus has a serious problem. At the same time, numerous editors have expressed their opinion that this is an exceptional case where the GNG is insufficient as a test of notability and their opinions cannot be discounted here." So this article still needs serious work. --Craw-daddy | T | 18:40, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
