Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Minnie Gertrude Matthews

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I've added this back from "Old" because there isn't anything here to indicate any real consensus one way or the other. Please look and see if we can come up with some more definitive comments, please. -- Cecropia | Talk 16:53, 19 Jun 2004 (UTC)

  • These two people don't seem to have done anything noteworthy, but for living for a long time in the same place. Neither of them lived for an exceptionally long time or in an exceptional place (I've never been to Brampton, Ontario, so I'm guessing its not exceptional). I know they have been created seriously, but I don't think they have any encyclopedic worth. Joseph Philipsson 02:50, 9 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Marginal keep on MG Matthews, since it seems like she may have some significance to the local history. It would be great for Wikipedia to have well-done articles on interesting bits of local history like this. No vote on RG Edwards, though. Everyking 04:02, 9 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Living to 99 does not warrant an encyclopedia article. Delete. -- Cyrius| 05:57, 12 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • Of course not. But being named a town's oldest person on the occasion of its centennial might. Everyking 21:43, 12 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete both: nonnotable. Wile E. Heresiarch 04:22, 18 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete both. Maybe a keep if the info on Matthews was more definite, but delete both. [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]] 17:18, 19 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete both: nonnotable. Ambivalenthysteria 02:21, 20 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Comment: What if these articles were replaced by one article about the Brampton centennial and these old folks who received the day's special honors? Perhaps even if the people are too obscure for individual biographical articles, such an event in a town's history is worth an article. Everyking 05:32, 20 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • I don't think that's awfully suitable for an article. However, I think it could make an okay section in the town's main article. Ambivalenthysteria 08:14, 20 Jun 2004 (UTC)
      • Agree with Ambivalenthysteria. [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]] 18:31, 20 Jun 2004 (UTC)
        • Also agreeing with Ambivalenthysteria. I'm all for anything that makes a city/town article more interesting. Seems a nice compromise. Joyous 20:05, Jun 20, 2004 (UTC)
          • Excellent idea! God knows Brampton can use all the help it can get. (Sorry, Bramptonites :) ) Denni 02:13, 2004 Jun 21 (UTC)
  • R. G. Edwards deleted; Minnie Gertrude Matthews kept. Guanaco 17:20, 25 Jun 2004 (UTC)
