Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Georgia (U.S. state)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to Georgia (U.S. state). 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 {{Wikipedia: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|Georgia (U.S. state)|~~~~}} 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 Georgia (U.S. state).
Further information

Doesn't appear to pass WP:NORG, couldn't find secondary SIGCOV of this church. Search is complicated by similarly named megachurches Mars Hill Church and Mars Hill Bible Church, but I don't think this church has any coverage. ~ A412 talk! 22:33, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Keep It's not a mega church, but it's physically at the epicenter of Lost Mountain, Georgia and important to the community there. When the community is inevitably incorporated, it will be the largest in Cobb County, Georgia and this church as been around for nearly 30 years serving that community. 50.192.32.21 (talk) 16:02, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Yet more GNIS-import fake ghost-townery. The contemporary USPS directory has this as a post office in Baker, and Brimley reporting things near to the post office in 1910, which I suspect people are going to use for the usual fallacious "near XYZ" argument, doesn't magically make it more than a post office. Furthermore if USGS Water-Supply Paper 339 supported this being a town or a village, it would actually say that as it does for Newton and Elmodel in Baker, rather than more "near Mimmsville".

  • Delete after making sure the community is listed on county page I already know that rural Georgia is not sufficiently covered by newspapers. So I cannot rely on that source. The Atlanta paper mentions it as a community a few times. This is the best mention, https://www.newspapers.com/article/the-savannah-morning-news-mimsville/140827964/, it establishes the existence of a named community prior to the post office. This website lists it as a community. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Baker_County%2C_Georgia. I feel like I've heard of it. But it doesn't have enough reliable sources to merit an article.James.folsom (talk) 23:56, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Merge with Baker County, Georgia. This appears to be another post village (but could be a poorly-attested town, per James.folsom), with some relevance to the history of the surrounding rural area (best described in the Baker County article), but there's no clear evidence for notability in its own right.

  • I'm getting a lot of hits regarding different recorded specimens there. A list of Yale graduates said George King moved to a farm near there and began collecting reptiles, so perhaps that explains it. SportingFlyer T·C 00:11, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • delete I see no reason to point this probably-just-a-post-office to the county article. It's not a notable place, and we don't have a definite character for it. Mangoe (talk) 02:52, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Delete per Mangoe. I really don't understand why people want to merge/redirect these stubs, when the merge target has no mention of the subject (or mentions it only as an item in a bulleted list, as is the case for Baker County, Georgia), nor any relevant section where the information would fit without being WP:UNDUE...particularly when all the information we have about this place is from trivial passing mentions in databases and gazetteer tables. That just introduces confusion and irrelevant clutter. WeirdNAnnoyed (talk) 16:06, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    The merge redirect doesn't have to be that way. I was just for making sure that this vague community is listed on the county page and redirect the article there. I agree that GNIS crap should be dumped on the floor. I believe some editors also place value on all contributions no matter how useless they were. In those cases redirect at least preserves those. So, I think that's why you get that also. Another thing that's on my mind is many of these counties are not much more than stubs anyway, so if the even lesser known communities get listed there, then somebody could add a little info about each minor community. I've always thought it would be good to just list the unincorporated communities that actually exist but have few good sources on the county page with a little paragraph about. That just makes a better article in general, and I don't understand why so many editors prefer they have their own articles. James.folsom (talk) 00:49, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Weak Keep Topic is a part of a subset of obscure (but encyclopedic) information about an obscure subject. If we are to delete this page, it will create a hole in that subset of information. So either merge this (and all of the other pages in that subset that are effectively no different from this) into some larger page, or keep MNewnham (talk) 20:26, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
