Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Icelandic America

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Icelandic America was proposed for deletion. This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record. The result of the debate was to delete.

Micronation? Searching for "Icelandic America" brings up a lot of irrelevent links to this subject, but nothing to verify its existence. Zero Google hits for "Islenska America". The article doesn't explain its existence. RickK 23:26, Nov 22, 2004 (UTC)

  • Sounds suspicious. Exploding Boy 23:40, Nov 22, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Work of an anon with no other contributions, no verification. Andrewa 23:56, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. If it ain't verifiable, it ain't in Wikipedia. Plus it only has a population of 11, so probably isn't encyclopedic. David Johnson 00:16, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Smells like a hoax to me. [[User:Livajo|力伟|]] 00:45, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Either a prank or someone's idea of a piconation. Geogre 04:58, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • DELETE You would think if Iceland annexed territory even a local Icelandic newspaper would pick up the article. None have since the supposed annexation of 3 November 2004. Has to be a hoax or someone's micronation. --ExplorerCDT 05:46, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete hoax. Fire Star 16:05, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • IMO the last version by the same author is suitable for speedy deletion and move to BJAODNS --Wikimol 21:54, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Certainly delete. Not sure why you would move this to BJAODN - it's not funny. Andre (talk) 23:20, Nov 23, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, nonsense. --Biekko 00:00, 24 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, pointless nonsense, likely a joke or self-promotion --Librarian Brent 00:16, 24 Nov 2004 (UTC)
