@Ottawahitech: AS far as I can tell Brian Zaiger does not have article on the English Wikipeia., whereas Encyclopaedia Dramatica does. And neither of us are going to create an English Wikipedia article for Zaiger in the short term, even less one that could avoid w:WP:BLP1E. The remaining courses of action are to move this item to Encyclopaedia Dramatica leaving a redirect or create a Wikidata item for Zaiger which has a good faith probability of passing d:Wikidata:Notability (I'd expect a challenge on the latter with liklelihood of delete). Even if a wikidata item for Zaiger can be persisted a merge discussion might be raised here, and while I contest an undiscussed merge I might or might not vote vote either way on that discussion and I leave myself the option of raising that merge proposal myself. I'm going to assume that you may well prefer there was not a merge so I would be grateful if you could list me what you regard as the best three reliable sources for you can find for Zaiger so I can consider whether to create a Wikidata item for him. You (or anyone) are of course welcome to try and persist a wikidata item for Zaiger but per my practice elsewhere if that doesn't meet my view of substance with a chance of passing Wikidata's notability I'm likely to initiate a VFD (actually in this case it would be a merge proposal). Please supply your best w:WP:THREE w:WP:Reliable sources and I'll union with anything useful I can find for possible Zaiger Wikidata item creation: Thankyou. -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 20:43, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Support (proposer): I may boldly move after 7 days if there are no formal opposes. In the event of signs of the move not taking place I reserve the the right at any time to consider raising a VFD on a Lack of notability basis. I'll review whether I feel the need to raise a VfD as and if opposes or comments come in. Thankyou. -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 08:42, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Comment: I've adjusted the proposal above from merge to move as the target page does not exist. Also notifying @Ottawahitech: as creator. There will need to be some page re-factoring following the move. -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 08:47, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Y Done: Move has been completed. I began to wonder if this was a good idea during the move but I'm not sure I have a case for a VFD on policy or I would do it.. -- Djm-leighpark(a)talk 09:32, 9 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nope it should have been a merge[edit]

Having completed above move I realise I should be w:WP:TROUTed as this is a now a duplicate article and should have been a merge to Encyclopedia Dramatica. I intend to BOLDly executed that merge forthwith, albeit I have been things to do on a Sunday monring. However I need to do some cleanup/refactoring work on the target first. Yuk. -- Djm-leighpark(a)talk 09:32, 12 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
