Racial hoax AFD close[edit]

I think your close at the Racial hoax AFD was problematic. Even though the "keep" voters certainly outnumbered the deletes, not a single one of them gave any actual substantive arguments in favor of keeping, and the strength of arguments were certainly strongly in favor of deletion. For example, "Keep real topic, meets WP:GNG." A vote as useless as this should be utterly discounted, along with all the others. Please reconsider, thanks. (talk) 16:44, 9 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

There is a clear consensus that GNG is met, and therefore a clear consensus against deletion for notability reasons. Therefore, the only two possible options other than keep are: 1) delete due to extremely poor quality (WP:TNT based on WP:OR/WP:SYNTH concerns); 2) merge due to insufficient standalone notability (WP:NOTINHERITED). However, I did not find a consensus for either of these options. I've discounted Gumbear's !vote as being not based in policy, leaving behind 4 !votes to keep and 3 !votes to merge or delete. -- King of ♥ 17:47, 9 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Request disambiguation[edit]

I noticed that you created that disambiguation page Half-court. This gives trouble at Template:Basketball. There the term half-court is used for equipment. I hope that you are able to adjust the link there to the correct place, as equipment is neither a shot nor 3x3. Thank you in advance. The Banner talk 09:22, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Done. -- King of ♥ 16:57, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
