The first guy named Scott McArthur to be deleted from wikipedia for not being notable ;)! Thue | talk 20:24, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. I suppose we're not allowed to shoot the author? --Tagishsimon (talk)
    • Don't be so negative, I think the page was may have been made in good faith. On second thought it may be a joke, in that case, shoot away :). Thue | talk 20:33, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. A nobody, this should be a speedy delete Edward 20:27, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    • It should clearly be deleted, yes, but putting pages through a deletion process before deleting gives the creator a chance to understand why it was deleted and feel that he has the chance to get a fair say. So in summery I think there is a good reason this is not a speedy delete candidate by the rules. Thue | talk 20:33, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • We get to look at that photo for the next five days? Groovy. :^) Delete as patent vanity. - Lucky 6.9 20:39, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • These really should be speedy deletes, the "article" and the photo. Postdlf 21:28, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Move to User:Scottmcarthur, then speedy redir? Niteowlneils 22:32, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Good idea. It's a good start of a user page, anyway. - Lucky 6.9 22:37, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. GRider 21:43, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Don't delete. I may not be famous, but how often do you type your own name into a search engine to see if there are other people with your name and what they are like? This could actually start a useful trend, especially if a format is specified. scottmcarthur 21:43, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Moved into a user page. Resultant redirect speedy deleted under redirect case 2. Rossami (talk) 07:47, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)
