Self Promotion created by a sock puppet for non notable individual. Albums are self released on his own vanity label. Claimed airplay is not rotation. Claimed charting is not good charts. Lacks coverage in independent reliable sources. This article is bombarded with sources but other than one up and coming piece from billboard (which seems very advertorial) it lacks any good ones for GNG. Quotes from him are not coverage about him. PR is not independent. Attending parties and award shows is not notability. Being in the background of a music video is not notability.

  • Delete - This guy comes kind of close to notability by association, but see WP:INHERITED. The article in Billboard (currently footnote #12) definitely helps, but otherwise his music has not been noticed by reliable media and this WP article has a suspicious number of citations that go to dead sites. There are some fairly reliable sources for things that have been done by his record company and charity, but those would be more valid for articles about them. Otherwise this WP article is surely an attempted promotion for a guy who is good at networking and getting himself into pictures with famous people. Good luck to him in his many ventures but a WP article will have to wait until he is noticed by someone other than himself. (Note: When searching, beware of a visual artist of the same name.) ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 16:45, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete Wikipedia is not Linkedin. People should not use it for self promotion and we need to enforce these policies for them to have meaning.John Pack Lambert (talk) 20:53, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

This is hardly remarkable. There are thousands of mobile home parks around the country, not sure why this one deserves its own page. Here's a Google Maps view of the place: https://goo.gl/maps/GtodqDXNPZef4r6p9 BigDwiki (talk) 00:26, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete. I can't think of how a trailer park could ever be notable. This one certainly isn't anyhow. Ajf773 (talk) 02:22, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete No more notable than any of the other residential roads in the vicinity, or indeed anywhere.----Pontificalibus 06:45, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete Listing in the GNIS is merely an acknowledgement that it appeared on a map at some point, in this case one prepared by the City of Mobile, Alabama. Absurd and risible to think this means this is notable. Fails GNG and NGEO - appearance in a database of anything that has been on a map in this country is not "legal recognition" and there are zero sources of any substance on this. Reywas92Talk 16:15, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete as per nom and express wonderment as to how this article managed to survive for nine years with nobody noticing. Cosmic Sans (talk) 16:18, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete This is an encyclopedia not a dictionary. When the article tracks the inclusion of a name in another work this is the work of a very specialized and specific dictionary, not the work of an encyclopedia.John Pack Lambert (talk) 21:52, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Except for one patent, she fails to establish what she is notable for. Lacks WP:RS, fails WP:GNG, clearly promotional piece, needs deletion. Meeanaya (talk) 12:03, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete The article appears to have been extensively edited by the subject, apparently to promote her business handling EEO claims--see earlier versions. In the process she seems to have restored some copyvio. DGG ( talk ) 14:47, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete one paptent does not come even close to making someone notable. People trying to use Wikipedia as a promotion tool is done way too much and we need to stop it before Wikipedia gets shifted to being Indeed.John Pack Lambert (talk) 17:36, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete Article is an orphan, mostly OR, and essentially a piece of business promo. Agree with JPL: with the increasing erosion of notability standards, WP is slowly becoming a directory. Agricola44 (talk) 14:46, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep She meets WP:GNG with 3 long profiles of her, with lots of biographical info, one in the article already (BlackPast.org [1]), and two others that I've found quite quickly: Face2Face Africa [2] and Black Enterprise [3], plus a short entry here [4]. It's clear that the subject and others working for her have edited the article, and it does need work to remove unencyclopaedic descriptions, but she does meet Wikipedia's notability criteria. RebeccaGreen (talk) 12:24, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment I have edited the article, adding the sources listed above and others. Just as a matter of interest, the article is not an orphan, and has not been for at least 4 years (not that being an orphan is a reason for deletion). Nor is it OR - all information is sourced to the references, except for the degree at Tulane Law School, for which I haven't yet found a source. If no sources can be found, that can be deleted.
