Article about Fastest fictional space ships[edit]

Hello. I'm working on an article about Fastest fictional space ships.

I road once these blog post Fastest Ship in the Universe: How Sci-Fi Ships Stack Up and thought this would be a create wiki article.

My question is now is this article relevant for wikipedia? I could also need some help because I'm an Gater an from the other franchise I don't have enough knowledge. (Feel free to edit)

Is the title good or is it more a list and i should name it "List of..."?--Malo95 (talk) 16:48, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

@Malo95: Blogs are generally not acceptable as reliable sources. If the only sources you have are those blogs, it's likely the article will be deleted. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:10, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
@Nihonjoe: For the Stargate speeds I looked at the Stargate Wiki. This is a reason we asked for help to search better sources. But what do you think is the article/list in general relevant enough for wikipedia?--Malo95 (talk) 17:16, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
@Malo95: Who is "we" (in your comment "...we asked for help...")? Unless you can find enough reliable sources to verify the notability of the topic, it is not going to be a viable article. The Stargate wiki (or any wiki, for that matter) is not an acceptable source. Additionally, a stargate is not a ship, so it shouldn't be included in the article regardless. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:20, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Since all these speeds are "in-universe", there can by definition be no reliable sources for such claims. This strikes me as incredibly non-encyclopedic content. I would suggest you host it on your own blog or publish it in your own fanzine; it has no place here. --Orange Mike | Talk 01:51, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your answers. I will stop work on these. @Nihonjoe: the "we" was a mistake I wanted to write "Why I...". And I now a Stargate is not a ship but in the franchise are many space ships and they are really fast. ;-)--Malo95 (talk) 06:49, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Blog spam[edit]

We seem to have a problem with a fan blog being used all over the alien Predator franchise pages... avpgalaxy.net. should we get a bot to help fix this?--Moxy (talk) 17:42, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

I ask once more, what exactly is the problem? - TurokSwe (talk) 17:49, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
As linked on your user page.....we don't use fan blogs as sources...... I see you're unaware of this so I moved the conversation to Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard#Blog spam so others can explain.--Moxy (talk) 17:55, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Still, AVPGalaxy is still a recognized and trusted source of news in regards to the Alien/Predator franchise and has been for a long time and repeatedly referenced, and the information contained within its articles isn't even disputable. - TurokSwe (talk) 18:22, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
The fact you belive a fan blog is reliable is why I moved this to Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard#Blog spam.--Moxy (talk) 18:32, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
I still don't see the problem. You referring to it as a "fan blog" doesn't negate its good quality and reputation. - TurokSwe (talk) 18:40, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Noting that I have added more articles covering the news. Just to put your mind at ease. - TurokSwe (talk) 18:57, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
