One-off award show whose only claim to fame seems to be that it caused a lawsuit between its creators[1]? While widely reported on, it appears that the vast majority of sources, other than the Variety one, are churnalistic re-reporting of press releases. Is the Variety article enough to establish notability? I'm of the opinion that it does not. Axem Titanium (talk) 04:43, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Weak keep It is probably the fact that there was legal action that made the show notable. Obviously I can't use court documents but I can tell right now that the case appears to have been dismissed though there's still issues over attorney's fees and the like. While the awards themselves are churned from press releases, that's usually the same on most other award ceremony lists, but the fact they cover them and decouple the press release format for their own articles show they have some care to the matter. --Masem (t) 05:04, 22 May 2020 (UTC)


The lawsuit is 100% not over. Burg has been intentionally using any available means to delay it to avoid having to produce any discovery, hoping he will be able to wait it out. He has claimed sickness, travel, basically anything imaginable. A trial date was scheduled to be issued on 3/22 but this was delayed due to the coronavirus situation, a trial date will be announced in June 2020.

  • Keep - This has been a constant NPOV sounding board for the above user who has gone as far to accuse me of being Berg since they cannot use Wikipedia to WP:RGW. The show received in-depth coverage and aired on CBS as a nationally televised award show. It meets WP:GNG. --CNMall41 (talk) 07:13, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

I couldn't find anything in the sources that actually prove notability. n.1) IAFD (not reliable), n.2) this one is the only one I am not sure: I can't find anything about the author and I believe this book it self is not enough to prove notability, n.3) its autobiography, n.4) i found it online here all I could find was a passing mention of his name, n.5,6,7) its autobigraphy, n.8) a very short bio in Tabernacle Baptist Church Atlanta that definitely doesn't prove notability. So, putting all together we have a passing mention on a good book, a book that I believe not being "relevant". AlejandroLeloirRey (talk) 02:50, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Keep Per WP:GNG. While sources mentioned by nom, are indeed questionable, sources in Further Reading section are much better, and IMO do go over the threshold. Ipsign (talk) 06:52, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
  • in "Further Reading" 2 articles are about a small "scandal" not really going toward notoriety, but the gaywired one looks ok. Still, I don't think that a passing mention on a good book, a book of no relevance and an article on gaywired sum up to notoriety.--AlejandroLeloirRey (talk) 10:18, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

To me this is a classic case of WP:BLP1E for a diver who just happens to be in the Guinness Book of Records. There's no real coverage of this person, apart from setting two very similar world records. It was created by a WP:SPA some six years ago too. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 11:25, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Delete a non-notable singer.John Pack Lambert (talk) 20:42, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Keep. The article does seem to cite some independent sourcing, e.g. [2]. I wouldn't simply dismiss the singer as being non-notable. Sjakkalle (Check!) 09:58, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
Comment notability is defined by multiple independent reliable sources. There are also specific notability guidelines, but the subject fails them as well. One source, the half of which can't be used cause it's direct speech, doesn't prove the subject is notable. Less Unless (talk) 13:41, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Delete. If the band the subject used to sing with was notable, it could be redirected there - but it isn't. If the only notable thing was writing for a film, then WP:1E would apply and the subject still isn't notable. Ifnord (talk) 21:32, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Keep. The person has been cited in notable national media of Bangladesh. There might be more sources in their native language.Beritagsier (talk) 22:11, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Template:Indie music scenes[edit]

Navbox with ill-defined criteria, woefully underpopulated; if it were to be expanded, I'm not sure what objective criteria are necessary to expand it; what makes a scene "Indie" or not (i.e. what are some non-Indie scenes?) and what should or should not be included? It's not a great navigational aid, as a category handles the subject much better anyways. Jayron32 20:34, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
