Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Federal Republic of Western Niger

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a badly-written, badly-organized article about a non-existent country. --Sesel 11:20, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. Some Nigerian secessionist's fiction. Gzornenplatz 11:29, Jul 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. This article seems to refer to the country commonly known as Nigeria, but according to the CIA World factbook, the conventional long form of the name is Federal Republic of Nigeria, not the title of the article. The existing Nigeria article already covers everything in this article, except the list of universities and sports stadiums.--MaxMad 11:40, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Agree with Gzornenplatz: This is a POV wish stated as fact. It's still one nation, not two. Geogre 12:47, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • If this is patently incorrect, shouldn't it be a speedy delete? Delete anyway. Average Earthman 13:33, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • No. Being incorrect is reason for someone to edit the article and fix it or, if it can not possibly be fixed, to nominate it here. This fits none of the specific categories eligible for speedy (though it certainly seems to fit the criteria for a normal delete). Rossami 13:53, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • I disagree with Rossami, but I'm not going to get into a war over it since it's obvious this is going to be deleted. It might even be a copyvio. But whatever, delete. RickK 21:31, Jul 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete fiction. -- Cyrius| 04:40, 30 Jul 2004 (UTC)
