Wikipedia:Requests for deletion

If you think a page should be deleted, read the deletion policy to make sure.
Then follow these instructions on how to request a page for deletion. To find more information on what discussed deletions and quick deletions are:
PLEASE READ THIS

Before nominating: checks and alternatives Edit

Prior to nominating article(s) for deletion, please be sure to:

A. Read and understand these policies and guidelines
  1. The Wikipedia deletion policy, which explains valid grounds for deletion.
  2. The main four guidelines and policies that inform deletion discussions: notability (WP:N), verifiability (WP:V), reliable sources (WP:RS), and what Wikipedia is not (WP:NOT)
  3. Subject-specific notability guidelines, which can be found at Category:Wikipedia notability guidelines
B. Carry out these checks
  1. Confirm that the article does not meet the criteria for quick deletion.
  2. If there are verifiability, notability or other sourcing concerns, take reasonable steps to search for reliable sources. (See step D.)
  3. Review the article's history to check for potential vandalism or poor editing.
  4. Read the article's talk page for previous nominations and/or that your objections haven't already been dealt with.
  5. Check "What links here" in the article's sidebar, to see how the page is used and referenced within Wikipedia.
  6. Check if there are interlanguage links, also in the sidebar, which may lead to more developed and better sourced articles. Likewise, search for native-language sources if the subject has a name in a non-Latin alphabet (such as Japanese or Greek), which is often in the lede.
C. Consider whether the article could be improved rather than deleted
  1. If the article can be fixed through normal editing, then it is not a candidate for RfD.
  2. If the article was recently created, please consider allowing the contributors more time to develop the article.
  3. If an article has issues try first raising your concerns on the article's talk page, with the main contributors, and/or adding a cleanup tag, such as {{notability}}, {{hoax}}, {{original research}}, or {{advert}}; this ensures readers are aware of the problem and may act to fix it.
  4. If the topic is not important enough to merit an article on its own, consider merging or redirecting to an existing article. This should be done particularly if the topic name is a likely search term.
D. Search for additional sources, if the main concern is notability
  1. The minimum search expected is a normal Google search, a Google Books search, a Google News search, and a Google News archive search; Google Scholar is suggested for academic subjects.
  2. If you find a lack of sources, you've completed basic due diligence before nominating. However, if a quick search does find sources, this does not always mean an RfD on a sourcing basis is unwarranted. If you spend more time examining the sources, and determine that they are insufficient, e.g., because they only contain passing mention of the topic, then an RfD nomination may still be appropriate.
  3. If you find that adequate sources do appear to exist, the fact that they are not yet present in the article is not a proper basis for a nomination. Instead, you should consider citing the sources, or at minimum apply an appropriate template to the page that flags the sourcing concern. Common templates include {{unreferenced}}, {{refimprove}}, {{third-party}}, {{primary sources}} and {{one source}}.

Discussed deletionEdit

Put the deletion tag on the article.
  1. Click "Change source" at the top of the page to be deleted.
  2. In the edit box, add this tag: {{rfd|REASON}}. Put it at the top of the page, above the rest of the text. Then, replace the text "REASON" with a short reason why the page should be deleted. Do not be too specific here. You can add more details on the discussion page (see below).
    • It is a good idea to write a change summary to let others know what you are doing. You can say "nominating for deletion", "requesting deletion", or something like that.
  3. Click "Save changes" at the bottom to save the page with the deletion tag at the top.
    • You can also check the "Watch this page" check box to add the page to your watchlist. This lets you know if the page for deletion has been changed. If the deletion tag is removed any time before the discussion is closed, it should be put back.
Create a discussion page.
  1. If the deletion tag has been added to the page, a box should appear at the top of the article with a link saying "Click here to create a discussion page!" Click that link.
  2. You should be taken to a page starting with "Creating Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/..." along with the current year and the name of the article to be deleted. In the edit box, the following tag should have already been added: {{RfD/Preload/Template}} . Replace the text PLACE REASON HERE with a more detailed reason why the page should be deleted.
    • It is helpful to include links to the various policy pages about Wikipedia (that begin with Wikipedia:). Here are some examples of this: "This article is [[Wikipedia:COMPLEX|not easy to understand]]" or "Not a [[Wikipedia:notable|notable]] topic''. This will make others more aware of why the page is not acceptable under Wikipedia's policies.
  3. Click "Save changes" to save the new discussion page when you are done.
    • A change summary you can write for this page is "creating discussion page", "starting deletion discussion", or something like that.
    • As with the page for deletion, you can check the "Watch the page" box. This will let you know if someone else has replied to your discussion.
List it here
  1. Copy the title of the discussion page to the clipboard. You can do this by dragging the mouse over the text from "Wikipedia" to the end of the page title to highlight it, then right-clicking and selecting "Copy".
  2. Go to the list of deletion requests, and click "change source" beside the words "Current deletion request discussions".
  3. At the top of the list of discussions, paste the title from the clipboard (right-click and select "Paste"). Add a pair of curly brackets before and after the title to make a template that will copy the content of the discussion page onto the main deletion page, like this:
    {{Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/(name of page to be deleted)}}
  4. Finally, click "Save changes" to add the discussion to the list. If the page saves successfully, you should see your deletion discussion at the top of the list. And that's it!

Quick deletionEdit

If you think a page has nonsense content, add {{non}} to the top of the page.

If you think a page does not say why the subject is important, add {{notable}} to the top of the page.

If you think a page should be deleted per other quick deletion rules, add {{QD|reason}} to the top of the page.

Notifying the userEdit

Generally, you should try to be civil and tell the user that created the page to join the discussion talking about the page. This can be done by adding {{subst:RFDNote|page to be deleted}} ~~~~ to the bottom of their talkpage.

DiscussionsEdit

  • The discussion is not a vote. Please make suggestions on what action to take, and support your suggestion with reasons.
  • Please look at the article before you make a suggestion. Do not make an opinion using only the information given by the nominator. Looking at the history of the article may help to understand the situation.
  • Please read other comments and suggestions. They may have helpful information.
  • Start your comments or suggestions on a new line. Start with * and sign after your comment by adding ~~~~ to the end. If you are responding to another editor, put your comment directly below theirs and make sure your comment is indented (using more than one *).
  • New users can make suggestions, but their ideas may not be considered, especially if the suggestion seems to be made in bad faith. The opinion of users who had an account before the start of the request may be given more weight or importance.
  • Suggestions by users using "sock puppets" (more than one account belonging to the same person) and IP addresses will not be counted.
  • Please make only one suggestion. If you change your mind, change your first idea instead of adding a new one. The best way to do this is to put <s> before your old idea and </s> after it. For example, if you wanted to delete an article but now think it should be kept, you could put: "Delete Quick keep".
  • If you would like an article to be kept, you can improve the article and try to fix the problems given in the request for deletion. If the reasons given in the nomination are fixed by changing, the nomination can be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an administrator.
  • Try to avoid confusing suggestions, such as delete and merge.

Remember: You do not have to make a suggestion for every nomination. You should think about not making a suggestion if:

  1. A nomination involves a topic that you do not know much about.
  2. Everyone has made the same suggestion and you agree with that suggestion.
  • All times are in UTC.

  Keep Just because it is a short article, does not mean it should be deleted. This person is a huge part of American history and has numerous primary and secondary sources.

Category:Pedro Sánchez (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Fehufanga has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Not enough criticisms to justify its own page. Merge to Pedro Sánchez and redirect. I am also including the category as I don't see this being a useful eponymous topic category anytime soon. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 03:21, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Please discuss this request below, but keep in mind that you shouldn't vote on everything and that there may be options other than "keep" or "delete", such as merging.

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete both. The article barely explains why he is being criticized and the content would be better in the article Pedro Sánchez. On enwiki en:WP:POVFORKs are usually discouraged. The category will have no other contents, and it's not necessary. Lights and freedom (talk) 03:56, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Sánchez is a politician, so likely there are people who do not agree with him. What I currently don't see is why this needs an article of its own, and can't be handled in a sectioon in the article about him. As to the category: Categories need three pages, so where do we get the other page from?- in short: merge to main article, then delete; no redirect needed. Category: delete--Eptalon (talk) 08:21, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete Agree with both. Macdonald-ross (talk) 13:55, 28 June 2022 (UTC)

O Mariam (novel)Edit

O Mariam (novel) (edit · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete) · close request

MathXplore has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: As same as Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/The seven days of man, I cannot find coverage of this novel, and the only claim of notability is that it was listed to a prize (without sources). The rest of the article just tells the story with some quotes. The given references seem to be review sites or primary sources. MathXplore (talk) 11:47, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

Please discuss this request below, but keep in mind that you shouldn't vote on everything and that there may be options other than "keep" or "delete", such as merging.

DiscussionEdit

  •   Comment: I tried to search with "O Mariam novel" or "O Mariam book", but the results were books/novels by authors whose name are O. Mariam. MathXplore (talk) 11:52, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Comment:  (change conflict)  This appears to be a part of a bigger issue with the #KMUOS campaign run by the University of Sharjah. The English Wikipedia has been dealing with an influx of similar problematic articles (ANI thread). So far attempts at contacting the university appear to be fruitless. The issue here may be more than notability of the book, concerns of copyvio was raised in the ANI thread. In short,   Delete these articles. Notability not established, there is also the potential that these articles were translated from unacknowledged sources. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 11:59, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    Thank you for the information. With recognition of this comment, I would like to add Palestinian Pleasure (book) to this request. The basic problems are same (no coverage, missing references for notability). In addition, this article depends more on quotes, therefore it has stronger potentials of copyvio.

MathXplore has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: No sources are given and possible hoax. Most of the web search results show sources related to Shaun the Sheep, but not to this franchise. Per Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2021/Doraemon (Indonesia franchise), I don't think all local franchises meets WP:GNG even if its not hoax. MathXplore (talk) 10:57, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

  • Ok, So This Page Needs To Be Kept On Here Because It Is A Dhar Mann Character.
Episodes Featuring The Character
  •   Delete - No indication of notability and no significant coverage. If he is a character from a Dhar Mann series, that doesn't justify his notability at all, as there's no indication of coverage elsewhere. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 07:16, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    What do you mean? 98.17.164.44 (talk) 07:23, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    As a character, he is not notable, he has no significant coverage from reliable sources. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 07:26, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    Spongebob is a character why does he have a page? 98.17.164.44 (talk) 07:28, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    Because many sources talk about Spongebob as a character in a great depth. No sources talk about Donnie Grey as a character in great depth.

Lights and freedom has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: American high school with no particular significance.

PotsdamLamb has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Per WP:DICTIONARY This term is only used in a game but nowhere else. IP editor also says "Side-note to avoid confusion: This word is not in the official dictionary." PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 00:21, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  •   Delete - Wikipedia is not the place for non-notable neologisms nor dictionary entries. Just because it's trending today (one may take a look at the google trends graph) doesn't mean it's notable, nor that it will be trending tomorrow or the day after. No indication that this is used outside the context of Hermitcraft, Grian, or Minecraft. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page
  •   Comment: So I just wanted to point out that some editors have been using the article's talk page to vote and !vote so here is the link to the diff as of now when I asked them to come here https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Chobblesome&oldid=8300506 (and Fehufangą I added the asterisk just for you lol) PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 03:45, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
  • As it stands now, this is a dictionary definition, and therefore suited for Wiktionary. Problem though: I get an entry at en:wikt:chobble, but nothing at chobblesome. So, is this term really used widely enough to be worth an entry? - Wikipedia / Wiktionary is ill-suited for regional terms that don't see a more widespread use. I'd porbaly go with a delete here, as we can't give the term an encyclopedic meaning. --Eptalon (talk) 10:31, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
    @Eptalon I was under the impression that we only used simple wikt here and not en wikt? But I also noticed on en wikt that they protected that page (June 24) to prevent the same IPs from putting the same edits on that page that they are putting on here for vandalism and YouTube promotion. I cannot ever picture a term such as this being in an encyclopedia or wikt as they wrote it. Should probably check simp wikt too and flag it there. Thanks for your input. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 11:13, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
    I checked EnWikt, as my mother tongue isn't English. Yes, anyone is free to create new entries at Wikrtionary, but I guess the terms must exist. --Eptalon (talk) 15:30, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete. Another which does not need discussion. Invented terms not in general use are not inherently notable. Macdonald-ross (talk) 12:56, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Comment: There are words such as Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (which most people probably know from the movie/musical Mary Poppins), but then again, the word is from the 1930s, and the movie is from 1964. As to Mary Poppins, there are eight books, published between 1934 and 1988, and I don't think the word was created for the books. But again: If the word exists, and can be given a meaning, it goes to Wiktionary; if there's potential for an encyclopedic entry, it can stay at Wikipedia.--Eptalon (talk) 07:18, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Ferien has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Overcategorisation, there aren't these kind of cats on enwiki and they are kind of pointless, because in a decade movie category you will have your years which will have the keys 0-9 and you will have the genres which have the keys A-Z.

  •   Delete per nom. Categorizing people by continent is generally overcategorization. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 23:45, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Comment: What does the fact that some countries do not have the title have to do with anything? It would be inane to only categorize when there is total inclusivity. Not every country has a King, Prime Minister or President. Should we use special rules for them as well since they are not inclusive enough by your standards? While it may be overcategorizing, whether it applies to every nation has absolutely no bearing on the need for the topic. These categories allow a person for more easily search for information from a specific region when the "by country" is overly broad for their needs. If you want to argue that there is no need for that degree of categorizing, fine. To say it should not exist because it does not include everyone is just insane. Pure Evil (talk) 03:20, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Yes, but "First ladies" is not a title. It's more of a PR gimmick or slogan. I don't know of any country which has an official designation. And if there were such people, why on Earth would we categorise them by continent? Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:28, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

  •   Comment: I am not quite sure on this one. The reason I say that is if we remove the individual we could expand it. Looking up just the title I find many albums with different musicians or groups. I even found an OCLC number for it in the [World Cat]. So I am kind of leaning towards keep on this unless we have an article already on the title. The title in and of itself can be notable enough for an article, probably not the individual artists or we can do a list of the versions and musicians who did these albums. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 06:14, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
@PotsdamLamb: Specifically, this is about the album by James Galway. That album itself is not notable. The only flute concertos I listen to are Herr Quantz's so I don't exactly know a lot about Italian flute concertos. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 06:17, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
@Fehufanga If you just search Italian Flute Concertos you will see a lot of varieties of them, including the named artist on the article. I agree he is not notable on just a basic search but I did find the album with him and the same year listed. But what I’m trying to say is if we take out that info and explain what the article title means we can make an article out of it. I would also take a look at this. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 06:40, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
While James Galway is notable, the album is not. Italian flute concertos are not a well-explored topic in classical music, unlike Italian violin concertos (Corellian vs Vivaldian, ritornello vs concerto grosso, etc). Vivaldi wrote a set of 6 (en:Six Flute Concertos, Op. 10 (Vivaldi), most notably La tempesta di mare, RV 433). So did some other Italian composers, notably Pergolesi (article coming soon). There's just not a lot to explain here. (venturing into OR territory here) They're stylistically similar to Italian violin concertos (of course flute writing has its own idioms and figurations), and are mostly in the ritornello form. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 06:53, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

Auntof6 has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: I propose deleting the categories listed below. They are all establishment or disestablishment categories by country, and all contain only articles, not subcategories. Most of the articles in the categories are for organizations (companies, football clubs, etc.), settlements (cities, towns, etc.), or subdivisions (for example, provinces).

I assume many of the articles are there because there weren't enough entries to make a "by time" category, but I don't think it's helpful to put articles directly in these categories. If they are in any kind of establishment (or disestablishment) category, they should be in an "establishment by time" type of category. For example, if we're going to list settlements individually here with no dates, we might as well put entire settlement categories in them instead. If a settlement is in a country, it's usually the case that it was established there at some point, so we shouldn't need to put it under establishments without a date of some kind. The same is true for some of the other kinds of subjects covered by the articles in these categories. (Can a building or structure be said to have an establishment date? For what it's worth, enwiki doesn't categorize them that way -- not that we have to follow enwiki.)

Here is the list of categories being nominated, with a breakdown of the kinds of things that are in each. (Note: by "former incarnation," I mean a former incarnation of all or part of the country in question. For example, the Russian SSR would be a former incarnation of Russia.)

DiscussionEdit

  • @Auntof6: I don't have any opinion but as I recall, almost all of the Cambodia establishments ones could fall into a singular 20th-century one which I thought would be a bizarre categorization. It may be able to create decade categories from there (I haven't looked at it in a long time) but I think it's better as placeholder categories than not having them to later see if enough pages exist for categorization. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 18:22, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
    @Ricky81682: I guess we'll have to disagree on placeholder categories. I prefer to create categories when they're ready to be created, not to have a collection point for things that might go into some future category. -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:23, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
    @Auntof6 Except the future categories would probably exist already. It's just a need for categorization as I doubt we have only articles on like 10 establishments in those nations. Either way, I see your point. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 19:27, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
    @Ricky81682: If the categories existed already for those being discussed here, wouldn't they be subcategories of the ones listed above? For example, the Zambian political party Patriotic Front was founded in 2001; wouldn't there be a category for 2001 establishments in Zambia if the category existed already? -- Auntof6 (talk) 19:31, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep,   Delete, and expand. With so many subjects, there is bound to be multiple feelings. For most cases, the creation or end of a subject needs to be tied to a time frame for it to be useful. Not all things need this connection. Things that are created can find a created category useful but not essential. When a building or monument first opened to the public or when a ship went into commission can be valid uses but they normally need a time frame. In some cases, organizations and such things can survive with just their point of origin if the full information is not available. This is especially true for international organizations and companies but these things are almost always tied to a geographic category so this one is redundant without a date most of the time. In most of these cases, though, the information is available and should be used. For example the category with a group of settlements. The founded dates for those places is known somewhere and they could be separated by time frame. Just being established in a country serves no purpose as it just duplicates another category. "when" is the important part there, not "Where" For many of these categories, there are more articles that could fill them out a bit but that would require a great deal of effort. There certainly are more than 3 articles on this wiki on subjects that were created or established in South Korea. While true for some, it is not true for all. There are likely many countries where there is a very small number of articles and a category of this type is not useful. It is highly unlikely that there is a need for something like Category:Establishments in Togo, for example. It all comes down to a question of if there are enough articles for it to be of use and if anyone is willing to put in the effort needed to handle it properly. Pure Evil (talk) 21:15, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
    I'd also like to point out that I'm not saying we should never have these categories. I'm just saying that in their current state they aren't useful. Yes, they could be expanded, but we currently don't have enough valid entries in some of them; in those cases, they can always be recreated if we delete them now. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:40, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

The outcome of this request for deletion was to   Delete. Does not meet the notability threshold. Sources are nearly purely primary and/or unreliable. Government functionaries are not inherently notable, and there are insufficient sources to show notability otherwise. Vermont 🐿️ (talk) 16:25, 28 June 2022 (UTC).

PotsdamLamb has nominated this page for deletion for the reason: Nothing that makes this person noteworthy other than a business man. This is more promotional from what I can find with the first links being linked in, facebook and twitter. I did put it up for QD but he mentions he won an award, so I feel the community needs to make a decision. PotsdamLamb (talk) 17:25, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

A handshake does not make a person notable. I can shake our Presidents hand and I’m not notable. PotsdamLamb (talk) 18:46, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
Ok, he was awarded the Presidential Prize and Medal and was appointed chairman of the State Association, but let's not mention them? Bəşir İmanov (talk) 19:01, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
And again does not fit the guidelines for WP:Notability. It is a one time mention of an award (of which many people get from Presidents (again does not make them notable) and being appointed to a board also does not make them notable. PotsdamLamb (talk) 19:13, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
I respect your opinion, but I will have additional questions. Bəşir İmanov (talk) 19:20, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
@PotsdamLamb Well, you probably won't deny that this person is also a well-known businessman in Azerbaijan. Does being a successful entrepreneur make him an important person? I ask this question because the person has his own school, which is one of the most popular and highest paying schools in the country. Bəşir İmanov (talk) 19:55, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
@Bəşir İmanov refer to WP:Notability and it should answer your questions. Short answer, no it does not meet the criteria in my opinion. PotsdamLamb (talk) 20:20, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete - His positions don't make him notable. No source demonstrates notability. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:17, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep Given the economic and social significance of the agricultural sector for the entire economy of the country, the organization that regulates the key agricultural sector, pomegranate production can be attributed to a large industry.
Garashov's personal influence on the agricultural industry, as well as the economy, in my opinion, meets the criterion of the WP:Notability rules. Garashov is the founder and permanent chairman of the board of directors of the International Center for Education and Innovations of the 21st century.--Samral (talk) 07:40, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
***sniff sniff*** I smell some canvassing going on since this user has not made any edits to simple since May of 2017. You don’t just hop onto a wiki after 5 years of inactivity to put in a keep vote. PotsdamLamb (talk) 08:04, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
Please take into consideration this from [2] roughly translated to English "The agrarian sector, as the main sector of the country's economy, is invaluable for the survival of society..." which is taken from a speech he gave. PotsdamLamb (talk) 20:45, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep I see no good reason to remove the article, there are signs of encyclopedic significance as a manager of the agro-industrial complex and as a public figure. An article about a person must comply with WP:BIO. I did not find anything non-encyclopedic here, is noteworthy. --Erokhin (talk) 14:47, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
    Again canvassing. Only one edit way back in 2020 and that was just to their user page. PotsdamLamb (talk) 16:24, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete - This article appears to be the work of sockpuppets, just as on the English Wikipedia. Deleted on English Wikipedia both as Farhad Garashov and as Garashov Farhad. Robert McClenon (talk) 22:00, 16 June 2022 (UTC)Note: An editor has expressed a concern that Robert McClenon (talkcontribs) has been canvassed to this discussion.

  • Dear Robert McClenon, Looking at the previous discussion, I see that - You wrote that a person can be notable, so if a neutral editor can develop a real article, what's stopping us here? --Bəşir İmanov (talk) 11:43, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
    • Dear Robert McClenon, If this article was created by a neutral editor as a result of the previous discussion, shouldn't it be evaluated?
  •   Delete Deleted on en.wp as both PROD and A7, no mention of notability anywhere, and this discussion reeks of canvassing anyways. 172.112.210.32 (talk) 19:35, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep Judging by the discussion of the article, it seems that a source is required to prove that the person is encyclopedic, which means that the person does not meet the main criterion and may meet the additional criterion. In other words, it is impossible to see the extensive biography of a person being searched on the Internet, but since I live in Azerbaijan, I know that this person is very popular in Azerbaijan as a businessman and his biography is widely published in business magazines. As an example: 1) BUSINESS TIME Magazine (Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan: Strategic Partnership - there is an article about this person on page 36-38.) / 2020 (in Russian) 2) International Scientific Journal: (PRIORITIES OF FORMATION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL ENTERPRISE) Garashov F.A.--82.194.17.140 (talk) 12:12, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep The person has made a widely recognized contribution that is part of the historical record in his or her specific field. He is meeting additional standards. — Doesn’t this prove its encyclopedic nature? (sources are given in the article). There are minimum WP:ANYBIO requirements.--89.219.156.117 (talk) 15:30, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
    • This IP has only one edit, and that's to this discussion. Quite suspicious. 172.112.210.32 (talk) 15:35, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
A reliable and authoritative source - cnnturk.com, An authoritative source confirms that he is the creator of the "Originar" Brand - isni.oclc.org.--89.219.156.117 (talk) 14:27, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
All this article states is basically about pomegranates. It has nothing to do with if he meets the requirements of WP:N. ISNI just pulls meta information from various sources of which 5 are part of Wikipedia and the other 3 are not authoritative. Yes, CNN Turk is valid, however, it is only one source. Not enough to meet the requirements. PotsdamLamb (talk) 20:44, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
Azerbaijani businessmen appealed to the President - Media.az 6276 views, 1news.az is the most reliable source in Azerbaijan. and the two sources mentioned above are reliable sources. 1) BUSINESS TIME Magazine (Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan: Strategic Partnership - there is an article about this person on page 36-38.) / 2020 (in Russian) 2) International Scientific Journal: (PRIORITIES OF FORMATION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL ENTERPRISE) Garashov F.A. 89.219.156.117 (talk) 21:03, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
Haqqın.az the most independent source in Azerbaijan, it was noted in the article that 300 entrepreneurs are among them, as you can see, Garashov is sitting on a chair, that is to say, it is important. Another reliable source Mir24.tv - if you click on the picture of the pomegranate fruit in this link, you will see Garashov's interview. 89.219.156.117 (talk) 21:39, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
Views isn't always a metric for notability. Mere passing mentions are not significant coverage, even if they are from reliable sources. This is what I'm seeing with some of these sources - not enough coverage of the subject. The 1news source looks like a press release, which would be routine coverage and doesn't have as much weight. Still not notable. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:50, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
reliable source, Dunya.com is Valid, reliable source 2, CNN Turk is Valid. Okey? 89.219.156.117 (talk) 14:12, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
But let's be prudent to reach a consensus. I think that common sense will still prevail.
firstly, the presence of only one edit in the history does not mean anything at all: IP addresses can be dynamically assigned by the provider and change even if the user is at home and does not go anywhere. I'm not talking about the fact that the user can enter Wikipedia from different places in a planned manner. Secondly, according to the Wikipedia:Equality rule, this user has the same rights to Wikipedia activities as other users. And your statement about his bad faith is at the same time a violation of the rules of WP:AGF and WP:CIV (because it is not substantiated by anything other than your own considerations).--85.132.29.163 (talk) 11:15, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Note: An editor has expressed a concern that 85.132.29.163 (talkcontribs) has been canvassed to this discussion.
Yet none of these cover the subject in-depth enough. When there are multiple !votes (be it keep or delete) from users who have made little edits outside of an RfD or the article being discussed, there is reason to be suspicious. That is all I'm going to say about that.— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 13:02, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
I believe that the reliable and independent sources mentioned above will be essential to the survival of the article. How not to change your mind after these new sources. very reliable source - Dunya.com is Valid, Being the creator of the brand Originar "Made in Azerbaijan" very reliable source - Fruitnet.com is Valid, The inclusion of pomegranate in the UNESCO list of cultural heritage and Garashov's contribution to agriculture have increased the importance of pomegranate in the country. - Cnnturk.com is Valid The man can be called a pomegranate magnate. 89.219.156.117 (talk) 15:14, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
A well-known businessman in Azerbaijan, I would even say, has risen to the level of a public figure. There is a reason to stay, there are reliable sources. Articles about this man were published in newspapers and magazines in Baku.   Keep has minimum WP: ANYBIO requirements. Note Please don't write behind me as if I was invited. If you do that you will break the rules, I just wanted to express my opinion on this discussion, nothing else.--Masalli qasimli (talk) 13:28, 27 June 2022 (UTC)Note: An editor has expressed a concern that Masalli qasimli (talkcontribs) has been canvassed to this discussion.

  •   Delete Fails WP:N, has no references cited, cursory search is all user generated content. The article reads as if it is self-promotion. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 18:40, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete Not notable. Malay Wikipedia article doesn't establish his notability. Most "coverage" is from Kompasiana, which is basically Indonesia's medium.com.— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 23:24, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
  •   Delete There is no claim of notability and the wait request provided no reason for the article to be kept. It is natural for a person to feel the article they created should not be deleted. This does not change the fact that it meets the requirement for quick deletion and there is no viable reasoning provided to defer it here. "Wait", by itself, is not a valid reason to keep. Pure Evil (talk) 20:25, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
    The article was tagged for A4 and the creator objected to that tag. By objecting to that tag, they are saying they believe the tag is wrong and the article is notable. WP:A4 says If not everyone agrees that the subject is not notable [...] the article may not be quickly deleted No reasoning is required, if you disagree, you disagree and our deletion policy does not suggest that you need a reason. --Ferien (talk) 12:37, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
