Gpedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Internet

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to Internet. It is one of many deletion lists coordinated by WikiProject Deletion sorting. Anyone can help maintain the list on this page.

Adding a new AfD discussion
Adding an AfD to this page does not add it to the main page at WP:AFD. Similarly, removing an AfD from this page does not remove it from the main page at WP:AFD. If you want to nominate an article for deletion, go through the process on that page before adding it to this page. To add a discussion to this page, follow these steps:
  1. Edit this page and add {{Gpedia:Articles for deletion/PageName}} to the top of the list. Replace "PageName" with the relevant article name, i.e. the one on the existing AFD discussion. Also, indicate the title of the article in the edit summary as it is particularly helpful to add a link to the article in the edit summary. When you save the page, the discussion will automatically appear.
  2. You should also tag the AfD by adding {{subst:delsort|Internet|~~~~}} to it, which will inform editors that it has been listed here. You may place this tag above or below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.
Note that there are a few scripts and tools that can make this easier.
Removing a closed AfD discussion
Closed AfD discussions are automatically removed by a bot.
Other types of discussions
You can also add and remove links to other discussions (prod, CfD, TfD etc.) related to Internet.
Further information
For further information see Gpedia's deletion policy and WP:AfD for general information about Articles for Deletion, including a list of article deletions sorted by day of nomination.

I don't think he meets either WP:NACADEMIC or WP:NAUTHOR to the best of my ability to determine, although there may be sources in other languages I'm not finding. Most of the links on the page establish his existence, but not his notability. PianoDan (talk) 21:31, 15 January 2022 (UTC)



  • Keep

Hi there, and thanks for willing to discuss the deletion of this page. I have found a few more sources that I believe prove his notability as a professor, I will reference them here [1] [2]. Both of these sources outline that Professor Srivastava led the university's theoretical and research physics department, with an emphasis on research of theoretical solid-state physics. While in this role, Professor Srivastava developed novel theories regarding spin lattice relaxation in magnetic ion-pairs 9 diners, vibronic coupling in paramagnetic systems, and super paramagnetic relaxation 9 magnetism in nano-particles. These theories are still cited to this day.

This source [3] outlines that Professor Srivastava was the first to use a particular quantum mechanic model in order to determine a particle's suitability for recording. Professor Srivastava was invited to the Symposium on Condensed Matter Physics in 2004 to speak about his findings, and to discuss the ramifications of such a discovery. This source [4] is a book published in 1989 and distributed throughout India, the USA, and Canada outlining major advances in material physics. Research undertaken by Professor Srivastava is included and discussed in this book, namely his work on orbit lattice interaction for iron ions within insulators. The Australian Institute of Physics, in conjunction with ANU explored several pieces of groundbreaking work at their inaugural Congress, and research by Professor Srivastava was recognised at a national level for its novel discoveries [5] (to view, source will need to be downloaded).

These sources above are not cited on the Gpedia page, although I will add them if that's best. Further sources are available, but the ones that I have mentioned here are just a selection of what's available online. As Professor Srivastava did much of his work 20+ years ago in India, many sources aren't available in English on the internet, but in print. Most sources will be online, but there may be certain printed sources in Hindi that aren't accessible at the moment. I am happy to do further research to find these sources. From the sources I have compiled while drafting the Gpedia page (as well as the sources that I have outlined above) I believe that Professor Srivastava meets several of the notability guidelines.

I appreciate being able to discuss this page with you all. And sorry if I haven't formatted this correctly, this is my first time going through the AfD process!

The quickest way to establish notability is to cite a source that expressly shows that he has met one of the criteria in WP:ACADEMIC, and say which criteria you're pointing to. For example "Source X shows that he holds the rank of 'Distinguished Professor' at notable university Y". The sources you've posted here establish that he 1. & 2. is indeed a physics professor, 3. has published a paper, 4. has written a book, 5. presented a paper at a conference. However, none of those are sufficient to establish notability. Ideally, you'd like to see some coverage in secondary sources outside of strictly conference papers and academic journals, but that's not mandatory if you can establish sufficient importance to the field.
Alternately, you could look for a source that meets one of the criteria of WP:AUTHOR, establishing his notability as a poet. In that case, you would almost certainly needed to find signficant coverage in secondary sources. PianoDan (talk) 02:41, 16 January 2022 (UTC)
comment Thanks for these tips! Just for the sake of clarity - Professor Srivastava didn't write the book that is cited as source 4. His research was discussed at length in the book by authors that are entirely independent of Professor Srivastava, and was categorised as being a significant advance in modern physics. Just so I know I'm looking for the right things, what are the guidelines for establishing sufficient importance to the field? It seems like a fairly subjective criterion, so I was wondering whether there are a set of pointers or rules to help establish this.
Rohagr (talk) 11:18, 16 January 2022 (UTC)Rohagr
Sure - if you look down the page at WP:NACADEMIC, there's detailed discussions of each criterion. PianoDan (talk) 16:19, 16 January 2022 (UTC)

Delete. I am really not seeing the citation profile to support NPROF C1 on Scopus, which shows him with just 327 citations and h-index of 9. Being invited to speak at general symposia and conferences doesn't count towards notability. His research was discussed at length in the book by authors that are entirely independent of Professor Srivastava The only place I'm seeing his research discussed at length in this book (or rather, these proceedings of a workshop) is in the chapter he wrote, which is not by independent authors.

Has been PRODded twice, so we're here. While a search is difficult given other meanings of type casting, I cannot find any evidence that this was a notable blogging trend, nor any appropriate redirect as an ATD. There were lots of blogging fads, but this one didn't appear to have any lasting impact. Star Mississippi 15:12, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete: Firstly, the thing existed, sometime before 2012. Secondly, a search for "Typecasting" + blogging -wikipedia, despite Google's confident prediction of about 686,000 results, actually has under 200 hits in all, and many of those are about alternative uses of "typecasting: defining people by race or class, actors only getting roles of a fixed type, blogging about typefaces, defining data types in programming languages, etc. There are thus extremely few hits about the blogging use of "typecasting". A book (self-published?) offers a bare definition - not a substantial mention. The two sources used in the article are reliable, but "An ode to clicky keys" only offers the briefest of mentions of typecasting, not a substantial discussion; it's unclear whether Strikethru is a reliable source. It looks as if Polt 2015 is a substantial mention, perhaps the only one. I'm afraid there is really not nearly enough here to demonstrate notability, let alone to justify an article or even to cite the material in the article decently. What we have is part WP:OR, part WP:NEO (or DICDEF if you prefer), and a weak dash of sourcing. Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:40, 14 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Delete: In addition to above, this article reads like a personal essay of the author (User:Riwo) written to promote the idea of typing stuff out on paper and then scanning it. Sources do not appear substantial and in fact only two sentences actually are supported in the entire article. Anton.bersh (talk) 21:08, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

Non-notable YouTuber, the only good source I could find was this article in Shacknews, everything I found was either unreliable, in passing or an interview. Devonian Wombat (talk) 14:04, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Weak keep. To be honest, while we can't find that many sources, I think he deserves a stub. If this article was much longer then that might be a problem. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seungri400 (talkcontribs) 17:39, 13 January 2022 (UTC)
That makes zero sense. You didn't even cite a reason. Sergecross73
While I am trying to find at least some sources about his work, there just aren't any. I believe he is one of those individuals who has excellent work on video game collecting and the retro gaming scene. There are a number of video games related personalities we cannot find any cite-able sources about their work. However their contributions are so important that they deserve an entry here. One such example I can think of right now is bruce dawson of original xbox team, whose work in writing a virtual machine of the original xbox for the new Xbox 360 deserves to be documented. But there is no mention of him/his work.User:N013i
That's not how it works on Gpedia. Reliables sources are a non-negotiable requirement, especially for a WP:BLP. Sergecross73 msg me 17:43, 14 January 2022 (UTC)
I have added some of his works which were reported by some news sites. Please forgive my dialect as English is not my first language and If my sentences are not coherent User:N013i--~Nabeel~N013i 18:01, 14 January 2022 (UTC) .
Most of those sources would not be considered reliable by Gpedia standards. The two exceptions are Vice and Ars Technica...but those sources are mostly small passing mentions in articles largely not focused on him. Not really the type of stuff you can write a whole article around. Sergecross73 msg me 18:16, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

Very much not my field, but I noticed this because of the BLP concerns. Quite apart from the subject, there are a number of living people referred to, many in uncomplimentary terms, based on sourcing which is not acceptable for BLP. It could be argued that any of them are public figures just as much as he is, but this doesnt in my opinion justify an article mainly featuring the negative interactions among them. Apart from being basically written as a BLP violation, sources seem utterly unsubstantial, and I think the appropriate rule is NOTTABLOID. Some of the sources merely cite him peripherally; many are basically promotional notices.

I do not know to what extent this is the standard of referencing and article writing in this subject; if most other articles are like this, we should reconsider how we deal with the field DGG ( talk ) 21:31, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

Not enough notability shown. Unambiguous advert. Tame (talk) 19:25, 11 January 2022 (UTC)

Tame Why is this not notable? There are three companies in the NewSQL/Distributed SQL database market. These are TiDB, Cockroach and Yugabyte. The Cockroach page has fewer references, is mainly marketing and doesn't show why it is notable The TiDB page has references almost exclusively back to the vendors site and is basically a list of features they want to push The former YugabyteDB page that was taken down was nothing to do with me and was clearly written from marketing material however I believe that what I have written covers the topic seriously and with relevant references for a fast growing $1Bn company - Please look at https://db-engines.com/en/ranking to see Cockroach at position 58, TiDB at 95 and Yugabyte at 121 of 351 databases and many of the database entries below in the ranking page have wikipedia entries

I am happy to add any content that you think will demonstrate this to be more notable - I have already added the rapid funding rounds and growth and will add anything else you suggest. Datamgmt (talk) 01:18, 12 January 2022 (UTC) Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Datamgmt (talkcontribs) 01:02, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Keep: (on balance at present with possible need to WP:STUBIFY) Nominator has indicated they feel not enough notability is shown which I take to mean they believe product is notable. And it isn't an unambiguous advert to me as I which to know the products capability. That says there is a horrible apparent lack of sourcing on some sections. May need to be stubified and I'd like [[User:|Datamgmt]] to produce, per WP:THREE, the three best WP:RS sources. Thankyou. Djm-leighpark (talk) 08:51, 12 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Keep: Since nomination I have found the time to add another 30 references in most sections, however that work needs to continue. A special call out to Djm-leighpark for pointing out that it is the references that would help make the product more notable. These additional references mean that at the time of writing there are 7 academic publications, 27 news sources 9 general web pages and 20 from the product page (up from zero as they refer to specific features - in the same way as the TiDB website does - I originally omitted these as I was trying to find extra references for absolutely everything - however when it comes to some of the descriptions of how it functions they can only be found on the company pages 'More citations needed' and/or 'incubation' may have been more appropriate tags as I have clearly been working on it regularly as time allows. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Datamgmt (talkcontribs) 17:58, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

I was unable to find any significant coverage in my sources to confirm WP:GNG notability. Also doesn't seem to meet WP:NMUSICIAN, WP:CREATIVE or WP:ANYBIO. Every single source cited is self-published and I couldn't locate any WP:RS on Alpsten. Spiderone(Talk to Spider) 18:30, 9 January 2022 (UTC)

Keep - All but two sources of the Caspar Alpsten page aren't actively controlled by the user so all sources qualify as reliable and independent, the subject is notable and the article upholds Gpedia standards. The user Ingratis seems to not have done his research.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Blankslate123 (talkcontribs) 21.03, 9 January 2022 (UTC) WP:SOCKSTRIKE, see SPI Spiderone(Talk to Spider) 06:52, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
Keep - As the creator of this page, I'd like refute any points made in question to notability or reliability of the majority of sources cited. I must agree however that some points are poorly cited with one or two sources being self published, this is because I first saw them in print. I wasn't quite sure to leave those out totally or simply leave those minor details unverified. If the consensus is so, I'd like to take the opportunity to remove and replace any information that isn't 100% verifiable. I'm also quite new to the Gpedia community, I've made an effort to look into the guidelines before editing the article and in my view the subject fit all the relevant criteria to be on Gpedia.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Raindropcroptop (talkcontribs) 21.26, 9 January 2022 (UTC) (now blocked)

Couldn't find any reliable coverage. The sources in the article are just linked in and similar profiles, the lone newspaper report is also an interview of the subject. Fails WP:GNG. Bingobro (Chat) 08:07, 9 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Note: This discussion has been included in the list of Albania-related deletion discussions. Bingobro (Chat) 08:07, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Keep. There's a lot of fairly gossipy coverage in Albanian media demonstrating that he's appeared several times on TV and I think radio because he's so well known for his social media activities. This one is in English but is so utterly gossipy, I didn't cite it in filling out the article: "Why aren't you married?" / Gerard Hajdini leaves the moderator speechless, tells how his girlfriend got 50 million ALL: Tell us after I die for these stories!. I also found a U.S. local newspaper story about his background, conversion to Christianty, and plans after graduating from Oral Roberts University, so that gave me context to put in the Weebly page for his religious foundation, which I deleted from the original version as an unexplained ad. He wouldn't be notable in large countries, but in Albania, he clearly is: he has coverage in multiple independent sources, referring to different interviews more than a year apart. Yngvadottir (talk) 09:26, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
    That English article appears to be a machine translation of [4]. The translation doesn't make any sense. What this person is known for isn't discernible from the English text. Vexations (talk) 17:15, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
    That's why I didn't cite it despite its being in English. As I say, utterly gossipy. The only thing it supports is that he was on D-Night. Whatever Tirana show that is (we have a Korean ep at that title). The thing is, all the Albanian coverage—"famous for being famous" though much of it is—does demonstrate fame in his own country, over more than a year. Yngvadottir (talk) 21:36, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
    I'm not so exited about the idea that we would have an article that is supported by dubious citations in a language that none of us appear to be able to read without the aid of machine translation when google translate does such an obviously abysmal job of translating Albanian into English. The tulsa world article is from when he graduated from Oral Roberts University, well before doing anything notable. I still have absolutely no idea what exactly he is notable for.
