Near-certain autobiography with some sockpuppetry concerns. SCOPUS gives an h-index of 1, which is an abject fail of WP:PROF.

While a Google search on Ron Dwight shows that this person definitely existed, I can find no coverage in any reliable sources, even in the computing press where you'd expect at the very least a few obituaries. If he'd written WinRAR he'd have a case for notability-by-association, but it's fairly clear that he was just someone who owned the distribution rights in some territories, not the actual developer. None of the three sources are remotely appropriate for use in Wikipedia, and the ELs are either broken or to unreliable websites so can't take their place.  ‑ Iridescent 17:29, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

  • keep Definitely keep - the fact that he was active with WinRAR is inferior to the role he played in FidoNet Germany. As the Zone Coordinator for Europe, he forcefully re-structured and regionalized the whole German FidoNet which he was equally loved and hated for. Looking at the node- and pointlists of that time you can see that FidoNet in Germany was a huge community these days and it can be said that he and the consequences of his actions were a ubiquitous topic in all administrational discussions. --ius 22:00, 16 November 2017 (CET) ius (talk · contribs) has only contributed to the article(s) under discussion for deletion and AFD.

I prodded it with the following rationale: "The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (companies) requirement. " It was deprodded by User:Casliber with the following rationale "emoved PROD - per book refs". Sadly, Casliber did not add said books to the article or to the talk, so I can only guess he meant Google Book hits. I've looked at those, but I don't see anything better then few mentions in passing, which is not sufficient for establishing notability.

Keep There are plenty of reliable second sources regarding him.

Note Please do keep in mind that even major media outlets in Albania are not represented in google news or other related search engines. As such, it would be biased to be based on them for understanding the notability of Albanian notable persons.Gezimmemishaj (talk) 10:13, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
All BLP articles have to be sourced, I am not basing my deletion nomination solely on the lack of sources but as a national archive director it is unlikely that there will be in-depth coverage of this person. This is not the sort of public position that generates much coverage in any country that would go towards proving notability. So unless there are sources that prove his notability now then I don't believe that it is worth keeping the article in the hope that some will be found. Domdeparis (talk) 10:25, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
I saw that David Ferriero and Jeff James (public servant) notability comes precisely from their archives managing role. Both articles are less sourced than this one. And as I searched in google there are plenty of news articles regarding him probably every week. But, whatever, I do not care as it seems to be a bias against Albanians who are only notable in Albania (some days ago a page i created for the rector of the biggest university in albania was attacked for the same reasoning).

I agree with you about James and please feel free to nominate for deletion if you wish but Ferriero is a heavily sourced article and shows notability as per GNG. Please read WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS as this is not a valid argument to use in a deletion debate. There is no bias against Albanians or any other nationality especially from my part. Please try and read WP:AGF and do not accuse me of bias without proof as this is a personal attack Domdeparis (talk) 11:59, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
Its not a personal attack. It is a bias of English Wikipedia against persons notable in countries where English is not spoken. The articles in Albanian are a depth coverage of his activities. The same as the rector that I wrote above. The fact that there is nothing in English does mean nothing.Gezimmemishaj (talk) 16:16, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

It is not the frequency of the appearance of his name in media but the depth of coverage that is important. This is what is missing in this article. There are not enough in depth secondary coverage to pass WP:GNG. Domdeparis (talk) 13:12, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

You do not address the absence of any credible reliable independent sources.

  • Hello Batternut, hope you're doing well. I noticed that Greater Johannesburg is officially defined and delineated by the South African Government.[5][6] It has clearly defined TLC/TRC and district council codes. This seems a Keep to me per WP:GEOLAND, being a legally defined place. Perhaps you might not have seen these government sources; would you be able to consider withdrawing your nomination if these sources satisfy you? Warmly, Lourdes 03:59, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • comment - thanks Lourdes for an interesting point: that "Greater Johannesburg" was a definition used only in the 1996 census, and by the transitional Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Council (GJMC) during its brief existence from 1995 to 2000 (see Johannesburg#Government). If its notability rests on that definition it cannot be correct for the article to actually be about a different area, encompassing East Rand and West Rand. I would agree to a re-purposing the article to the 1996-2000 definition. The citation problem the article currently has could then be dealt with. Batternut (talk) 12:15, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Batternut, thanks for the reply. I'm not an expert in the geography of South Africa. While you're mentioning that this definition was used only in the 1996 census, I have seen government links like this which refer to the Greater Johannesburg area as recent as August 2017. But I'll go by what you're saying, as long as you use reliable sourcing within the article. You can reposition the contents of the article to correctly represent what Greater Johannesburg encompassed (or encompasses). As the area has been recognized by the government, notability is established per WP:GEOLAND. I'll leave it to your discretion to modify the contents as such. If you would wish to consider withdrawing your nomination, then it would be good if you could leave a note at the top of this discussion for the closing editor. Warmly, Lourdes 14:02, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Batternut, I'm not clear how my sources could make you reach the conclusion you are mentioning. If you could provide any reliable source that supports your inference, I'll be open to changing my view. The Department of Water Affairs, Republic of South Africa's 2011 report on water certification mentions Greater Johannesburg is a part of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality (see page 17 of their 2011 report). A plain reading perhaps would suggest that the Municipality you suggest is much larger than the Greater Johannesburg area, but not the same. Like I said, if you have any sources that clearly show that these both are the same, then I'll change my !vote. Therefore, in my opinion, there are three options here for consideration:
  1. We keep the article titled Greater Johannesburg and stick to exactly what the government and other reliable sources mention about Greater Johannesburg.
  2. We keep the article but rename it to the "Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area". (The article says Greater Johannesburg is also knowns as "Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area". There are innumerable recent reliable sources mentioning this area. For example, this government paper defining the area's provincial spatial development framework says, "[...] the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area [is] (the industrial heartland of South Africa, including Tshwane and the City of Johannesburg)". This book says, "Witwatersrand also denotes the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area, which spans the length of the gold-bearing reef.").
  3. We redirect the article to your target, if you can provide sources that clarify that these two areas are the same.
If you can provide the sources, that would be wonderful; else, we stick to the first two options. Warmly, Lourdes 03:31, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay - I'd love to find some output from the 1996 census online, but have so far failed. The conterminous region theory stems particularly from "Final-term report" (PDF). City of Johannesburg. 12 January 2007. p. 22, ch 1.  (a citation I put into Johannesburg#Government recently). Page 22 describes absorbing the MLCs plus Midrand Modderfontein, but Kempton Park confuses me, it might have been split up, I've seen it mentioned in both Joburg and East Rand. Btw the book Lourdes mentioned cites Wikipedia so must be discounted. I'll get back here again very soon. Batternut (talk) 15:16, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • option 1 - the 1996 census TLC (Transitory Local Council) list provides a difficult snapshot to work with - it defined "Greater Johannesburg" in terms of the transitory MLC's that existed for only 5 years. Most government and other RS is about the "Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area"/"Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Council", which does provide some maps. The current City of Johannesburg MM is clearly a reforming of the GJMC with some boundary changes - indeed changes that take it closer to the 1996 TLC list, though not precisely. Other mostly non-official sources though have used the term "Greater Johannesburg" meaning the Rand / the Reef / Witwatersrand (in its widest sense).
  • option 2 - actually relatively few official mentions of "Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area", only 16 for site:gov.za, compared with Durban about 65 or Cape Town about 641. All of the gov.za results I have seen are tangential, non-defining.
  • option 3 - the 1996 Census TLC list suggests some differences between the definition then and the current City of Jo'burg municipality. However, civic boundaries often vary over time without wikipedia having new articles for each version.
I think what this period saw was a slow-motion concretisation of definition of a new and wider metro to replace the old apartheid city. I see this five year period as the history of the birth of the current City of Johannesburg MM. Building a separate article (options 1) on "Greater Johannesburg" will amount largely to a summary of the history of current City of Johannesburg MM, probably with the addition of a selection of non-official interpretations along the lines of the wider Witwatersrand / PWV / most of Gauteng meanings, amounting to a rather unsatisfactory disambiguation page.
Btw, I think it would be best keep just a passing reference to GJMC in Johannesburg#Government, moving most GJMC stuff to City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality#History or possibly History of Johannesburg. Batternut (talk) 12:47, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
Ok. I appreciate the time you've taken to analyze and research. Unfortunately, unless you are able to find reliable sources supporting the interpretations you're giving, these inferences should not be included on Wikipedia. You say: "All of the gov.za results I have seen are tangential, non-defining." The sources I've given above define the area of Greater Johannesburg precisely, providing district and region information. Your inference perhaps is also that the number of government sources mentioning "Greater Johannesburg" is less than the number of sources mentioning other areas. That's not a critical parameter; as long as multiple sources do legally define the area, which in this case they do. I respect your opinions above, but as there are no sources to support your interpretations, I would finally prefer sticking to the first two options I have provided above. Thanks again for the effort taken out in this discussion. It has been a learning experience. I hope to work with you on other articles too. Warmly, Lourdes 13:03, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
Let us look closely at the sources you have provided:
  • 1996 census TLC, DCcodes - a list transitional councils disbanded 4 years later.
  • this (SARS contacts) - non-defining, but Lists Greater Johannesburg area amongst other areas Gauteng South; East Rand; West Rand and Gauteng north (including Centurion and Pretoria), therefore pretty well constrains Greater Johannesburg to a space the shape of City of Johannesburg MM (OR of course).
  • DWA 2011 report - non-defining, though the one mention, "Greater Johannesburg : City of Johannesburg MM" on p18, merely suggestive of a relationship;
  • SPISYS - one mention, "Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area (the industrial heartland of South Africa, including Tshwane and the City of Johannesburg" hardly defining, and actually written by the "Dennis Moss Partnership", conflicts flatly with the others
  • This book - says "by Quelle Wikipedia", therefore cyclic ref, must ignore.
The TLC list is the only RS with any precision (so far...). As mentioned, definitions that were dropped by the next census. Do we really want a "Greater Johannesburg" article nailed to a transitional snapshot of boundaries used in 1996? Cities always change over time. Batternut (talk) 15:15, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Cities may change over time but I took the time to go through Google Scholar and Google News sources. I realized that there are many academic and news reports post year 1998-99 that continue to refer to "Greater Johannesburg".[7] For example, this publication of LSE and University of Cape Town notes: "Greater Johannesburg is a city of about 3 million people but is part of a conurbation comprising a population of something closer to 8 million which includes...",[8] Many articles also have "Greater Johannesburg" in their titles, for example: "In-migration and Living Conditions of Young Adolescents in Greater Johannesburg, South Africa",[9] "The question of road traffic congestion and decongestion in the greater Johannesburg area",[10] "The impact of gated communities on spatial transformation in the Greater Johannesburg area",[11] etc. The Independent Online writes: "By comparison, the average in greater Johannesburg, comprising the City of Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni metros...". Financial Times carried a feature in May 2017 titled: "Investing in Gauteng: Greater Johannesburg".[12] Political parties like ANC specifically refer to "Greater Johannesburg".[13] This 1999 book is titled "Historical Dictionary of Greater Johannesburg ".[14] The review of this book also addresses Greater Johannesburg.[15] What I'm trying to mention is that in scholarly sources, news reports, popular culture etc, the terminology of "Greater Johannesburg" has continued quite strongly. Add to this you have mentioned above that your inference that Greater Johannesburg area is the same as the municipality may be original research ("...City of Johannesburg MM (OR of course)". Further, a "municipality" is an administrative body, while a "region" is a geographic mass. Equating the two seems illogical. Then there is actually no other option but to keep the article.

  • Keep when I accepted this article at AFC I thought the sourcing was a bit weak but seeing the size of the company and its history I was sure there were sources out there and it would survive an AFD. I had a quick look and found these [17], [18] where it is mentioned as being in the same league as Kickstart, GoFundMe and Indiegogo. There are other sources out there such as [19].

Domdeparis was fine to accept this from AfC, the standard there is a 50% chance of survival at AfD, but unfortunately I think we have to go with delete here. The sourcing he showed above doesn't meet our standards: source 1 is a part of a list, which we consider routine coverage in corporate/company AfDs. Source 2 from Crux is sponsored content (i.e. an actual advertisement and not just a recycled press release). Source three is also a list, but on top of that it is from Mashable, which we don't consider a reliable source for the purposes of establishing notability. Nothing in the article is independent and non-PR sourcing. Unfortunately, this company is not a notable subject. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:11, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Delete There is not a single source for Summertime Entertainment. It has produced only one film, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. I don't know if this company will produce any upcoming animated films. I also think that this company is defunct and future sequels of Legends of Oz, Dorothy's Return might be handled by a different animation studio.

  • Weak keep. I found three sources, but the real story appears to be the two founders, the Carroll brothers, who have had at least one production company before this and reportedly went on to Stereo Vision Entertainment (unreliable source), and whose fundraising methods have raised complaints and led to censure in various states. I'm not sure where this story best fits, especially since I started getting into unreliable sources and was unable to confirm the company closing down in 2015 as the article states. Otherwise I would argue for a change of focus and move to an article on the founders with redirects from Summertime, Alpine Productions, and possibly others. But there are three sources about the company now in the article, so I'm coming down on the "keep" side. Yngvadottir (talk) 00:55, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

The previous season was deleted by AfD at the start of this year. (See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2016 America East Conference men's soccer season.)

  • Speedy Keep - Per my comment above, the article meets the notability guidelines of WP:NSEASONS for the following reasons:
    • Per WP:NSEASONS, "Team season (or in this case tournament) articles should consist mainly of well-sourced prose, not just statistics and lists of players". We should aspire for these pages to not fall under WP:NOTDIR. The following sources are cited to cover the relevant topics of information in this article, as in, where it is, who played, and who contested the championship, and what was the outcome for the finalists.
  1. America East website, for official organization verification
  2. Albany Student Press
  3. Burlington Free Press
  4. Baltimore Sun
  5. Lowell Sun
  6. I'm also confident if further citations are needed beyond these third party sources that covered the tournament, we could find plenty of information, analysis from the likes of the NCAA website, TopDrawerSoccer, SBI, SoccerAmerica, and other publications that exclusively cover soccer. Not having enough citations, and yes, only seven citations is quite a lowly number, does not constitute the article therefore fails WP:NSEASONS
    • Next, the nominator believes that this article does not meet WP:GNG. The article actually does meet GNG for the following reasons:
      • First concern may be it does not meet WP:SIGCOV. A quick Google search of "America East college soccer" results in 1,950,000 pages. A news search brings back 3,970,000 results. A search explicity for "college soccer news" draws 8,400,000 results. The first pages of these results shows extensive coverage of the tournament from third party sources, newspapers, sports-focused websites and soccer-focused websites. Clearly, this meets the significant coverage criteria. So let's move on...
      • Reliable sources is the next concern potentially. So what is a secondary source? I think all the listed articles that detail and explain that are beyond the athletics websites are good barometers. So here are 10 links that focus or discuss on the A-East Tournament. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10. I think this meets enough secondary sourcing beyond the main athletic websites.
      • Multiple sources expected. Article has seven sources, and could easily have close to 20. Meets criteria.
      • Independent sources. All these websites, sans perhaps the Albany Student Press (although it is not an athletics website), are independent on the tournament, meaning we might have just 19 sources in this discussion.
      • Final concern would be WP:INDISCRIMINATE. Are these just brief summaries? No these articles feature interviews, summaries on the season, perspectives and explain the match more than just a box score.

That being said, I strongly believe it is safe to say that this article easily meets WP:NSEASONS and WP:GNG. I'm deeply worried that the nomination was made out of WP:IDONTLIKEIT rather than thoroughly examining whether or not the article truly meets GNG and NSEASONS.

  • Delete - no evidence of notability. GiantSnowman 11:43, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Redirect - No independent notability but a plausible search term. Sourcing in the article shows individual matches get some local level reporting, but so does pretty much every league in countries where football is popular. I'm not seeing any specific coverage of the season as a whole event. Fenix down (talk) 13:19, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep Sources clearly indicate significant coverage of the tournament. I too am concerned that this is a WP:IDONTLIKEIT nomination. There are plenty of sources. Knock it off. Smartyllama (talk) 14:49, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
Individual match reports =/= coverage of the tournament. Where are the articles on the tournament as an event in itself? Happy to accept the tournament is notable, happy to accept the teams are notable. This doesn't mean that individual iterations of the tournament are notable in themselves. They need to show GNG as an independent subject. For example, are there any articles from third parties previewing the tournament as a whole or summarizing the tournament post completion? Bringing together disparate match reports and saying that = GNG is too much like WP:SYNTH for my liking. Fenix down (talk) 15:20, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Comments I really don't understand why you are applying WP:NSEASONS to this, this comes under WP:SPORTSEVENT, also is the competition competitive or friendly, and where does it sit in the ladder, American soccer seems to do my head in sometimes for being so poorly organised. Govvy (talk) 15:42, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
It's quite organized, there is simply a lot of bureaucracy at this level of the sport in the U.S. that can make it look like a hot mess. This tournament that is being nominated for deletion is a competitive tournament, and part of college soccer in the United States. In the U.S., college/university sports (especially American football and basketball) are generally very popular and do serve as avenues for nurturing professional athletes. This tournament is the championship for the America East Conference, one of the 20 conferences that play in the National Collegiate Athletic Association's first division. (There are three divisions). Each conference at this level selects one team to receive an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament, which is what this tournament's purpose is for. At the top collegiate division, there is normally significant press coverage, as these tournaments can exhibit future soccer players that may play in MLS or USL. Several professional footballers such as Clint Dempsey, Vedad Ibišević, Neven Subotić, Santiago Solari, Alexi Lalas and Alejandro Bedoya played college soccer in the United States before turning pro. Nowadays, many pro athletes in MLS go through the academy ranks, but college soccer does serve as a net for players that may have been overlooked at the academy level.

  • Delete: A powerful lot of turgid and irrelevant arguments here. First off, this just fails SIGCOV and ROUTINE; despite airy assertions that sources exist that discuss this particular season of this particular tournament in the "significant detail" the GNG requires, none have been produced, and the article is free of aforementioned "well-sourced prose." It is not a valid defense at AfD to assert that qualifying sources may exist; they must be shown to exist. I'm unmoved (and hope the closing admin is likewise unmoved) by simple lists of the media outlets providing this tournament with routine sports coverage.

    Beyond that, whether players in this tournament go on to professional soccer, is "part of college soccer" (we did notice that, thanks), whether pro players once played college soccer and whether this particular tournament was competitive are just plain irrelevant to the discussion. Was this a tournament that people played in, attended and followed? Seems so. Does any of this have anything to do with whether it meets the requirements for a Wikipedia article? No. Ravenswing 06:59, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

In any event, notability not being inherited, its connection with the NCAA soccer championship is irrelevant. Ravenswing 01:45, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

This article basically consists of a weekly recap for a six month angle that's sufficiently covered in both wrestlers' individual pages. The subject matter fails the notability criteria, and the article itself is guilty of fan cruft and content forking. Feedback 05:05, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

One big unsourced ball of fandom listcruft. It has been tagged as badly sourced since 2010 and has gone through two AfDs in that time, without improvement. There is no useful value to this list (voice actors are commonplace and we have categories to list them). The detail in this list is excessive, as there is negligible sourcing. It certainly has no value beyond listing the actor names, as a category would do better.

I'm prompted to list this because of this edit, a persistent vandal today dumping another similar 3k block of unsourced, unverifiable BLP. Yet it's not actually any worse than what's here already. We can't polish this, so we should flush it. Andy Dingley (talk) 03:02, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Redirect to Category:Voice actors. I know it's cross-categorization, but that's a good way to deal with thousands of entries, and can apply WP:CATDEF as to who is really a voice actor and who just had a bit voice-over role in whatever, the latter of which is pretty much everyone who's been an actor. If you skim through Lists of actors, you'll see a good chunk of them as redirecting to categories. Maintaining a list of "well, what were they in?" is not useful. You get guest voices on the Simpsons from all sorts of celebs, and they're suddenly classified as voice actors? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 04:01, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Of particular note are the Daily Kos piece ([20]), this coverage in AdAge (I haven't yet added his Aftab/Aflac campaign advertising to the article), and the lengthy Cincinnati profile ([21]).

Recent AfD and a non-admin closure, but a bit late to simply re-open it.

They're a professor. But do they pass WP:ACADEMIC? I'm seeing neither the extent, nor the sourcing to justify this. This is another bio from a problematic community banned paid editor (KDS4444). Andy Dingley (talk) 02:11, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep distinguished chair at a research university. It means he passes PROF, and its been worked on by other editors to try to make it comply with our guidelines. Not a fan of the paid stuff, but Jytdog and others have helped here, so it isn't solely the work of a paid editor or only intended to promote. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:12, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
So we're happy to take this on the basis of only a job title and a TV credit? This is supposedly an academic biography, yet there isn't even a publications list. A CV so thin would have a hard time getting a postdoc role, let alone claiming to be NOTABLE. Andy Dingley (talk) 02:31, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, because of how North American academic ranks work. It means that he does meet the other PROF criteria without having to check. We also just had an RfC on this that confirmed passing PROF establishes notability independent of the GNG, and he clearly passes PROF. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:36, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
So what is his "rank"? The infobox claims "Distinguished professor", but the staff list states "University professor". This is an article which might well end up labelled as "notable", but it's also painfully lax. We're not usually so accommodating to our editors. Andy Dingley (talk) 02:39, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
Andy, his details are on his university page. SarahSV (talk) 02:40, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps amazingly, I've already read that. And nowhere does it call him a "Distinguished professor", which is what the infobox claims. Now maybe in Arkansas a "University professor" is something special, but it isn't round here. Andy Dingley (talk) 02:54, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
A University Professorship is a specific professorship given to academics with the rank of distinguished professor at some North American universities. It is different than simply being a professor at a university. It is a specific title for a highly regarded academic at the institution. TonyBallioni (talk) 03:01, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Weak keep. "Distinguished Professor" generally means someone with well-above-ordinary scholarship, and "University Professor" sometimes means something similar (at my campus it is like Distinguished Professor but even more rarefied). But at Arkansas it seems to mean someone with extraordinary contributions to service rather than to scholarship. So I don't think this is quite what we usually expect in WP:PROF#C5. Instead, in this case, it appears to be evidence of WP:PROF#C7, "substantial impact outside academia in their academic capacity", presumably for his general-audience work on Petra. —David Eppstein (talk) 03:06, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep. He's a distinguished chair at a notable research university. It means he satisfies PROF. George Custer's Sabre (talk) 04:19, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
IMHE (which is UK) someone with a "distinguished chair" would be titled as holding the "Zoidberg Chair in Psychoceramics" or similar. I can see no such description. Nor can I see "distinguished professor" being used anywhere outside our own infobox. As a BLP, we have to source such things, especially when their notability rests upon them. Andy Dingley (talk) 11:10, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

File:IreneDebbie.JPG

There are two media images used in the article Irene (musical), the sheet music cover in the public domain and this poster for the revival. The sheet music cover poster is used in the infobox and the revival poster is used in the Later productions. The rationale from the revival poster is "it is a key visual representation of the musical that is the subject of the article". The revoval poster fails WP:NFCC#3a in that the sheet music cover already is used in the article for means of identification and is a key visual representation of the musical. It also fails WP:NFCC#8 because there is no commentary about the poster thereby doing nothing to increase the reader's understanding of the film and its exclusion is not detrimental to the understanding of the musical. Aspects (talk) 23:42, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep: This article is about the musical Irene, which was a hit 1925 show that had its *ONLY* major revival in 1973, starring Debbie Reynolds. The revival was an star vehicle for Reynolds and enjoyed extraordinary success, despite the dated nature of the musical. This image is the revival's theatre poster, showing the importance of Debbie Reynolds to the production. I am not sure that this theatre poster is even under copyright. No copyright notice seems to appear on the poster (perhaps the image should be converted to "free"?). In any case, there are no other free images that would adequately represent this important production, and the poster is the best image to represent this the musical, with the original artwork for the musical showing Reynolds in the title role. The image is extremely helpful to our viewers, especially when compared with the artwork from the original 1925 production. -- Ssilvers (talk) 00:45, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
The poster does not show the importance of Debbie Reynolds to the production, only that she was in the show. There does not need to be an image for the any revival of shows unless there was critical commentary about the image itself in the article. Lacking this critical commentary, the poster still fails WP:NFCC#8. Aspects (talk) 00:00, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
The poster shows only Reynolds -- there is nothing else on the poster! It emphasizes that the production was revived as a star turn for Reynolds; this revival was the only major production of the musical after 1923. The poster also illustrates the *tone* and style of the production, so its visual contribution to the article is important to the reader's understanding of the revival. -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:08, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Montage parody

This title is the literal tip of an iceberg of an internet meme. A full rundown on the topic can be found here. The redirect directs to a almost completely unrelated article, and a heading of which that doesn't exist anymore. I will assume that the said heading wasn't deemed WP-relevant (can surely be verified by digging in its history). And as I said, the target is only marginally related. Thus, the redirect itself currently serves no other purpose than confuse. So my opinion is either to make this into a full article about the internet meme, or simply delete it. And since WP doesn't usually cover that kind of topics (feel free to prove me wrong, could only find this and this on topic, pinging the Project), we are left with deletion.
