You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Shorty Awards[edit]

As far as I can tell, the page Shorty Awards is a matter-of-fact listing of the historical events in a chronological fashion.

A user has come by with drive-by-tagging of {{COI}} and {{Advert}}, refusing to give any specifics as to why.

Attention would be appreciated, at Talk:Shorty Awards.

Thank you !

Notability of Nautilus Book Awards and Independent Publisher Book Awards[edit]

Dear fellow Wikipedians, In this edit a user has proposed to add three awards to an article about the Gokhale Method. Two of these awards have their own articles on this WikiProject: Nautilus Book Awards and Independent Publisher Book Awards. However, since both articles have not been assessed yet, and little secondary sources have been provided in it, I was wondering whether the awards are notable enough to include in the article about the Gokhale Method. Comments are welcome.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 23:17, 17 October 2017 (UTC)--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 00:10, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

I've been looking into the same topic for the same reason.
There's concern (on and off Wikipedia) that the three awards may be vanity awards, or means of identifying new authors for marketing from vanity publishers, especially the one you don't mention, forewordreviews.com. Independent Publisher Book Awards is a part of http://jenkinsgroupinc.com. I've found little about Nautilus Book Awards other than they have slick and prominent marketing.
I found what appears to be a good breakdown on the quality of various awards: https://selfpublishingadvice.org/allis-self-publishing-service-directory/award-and-contest-ratings-reviews/ . I expect there are more lists like this, but didn't find any with my quick searches.
I'd hope none of the three would be considered for notability or due weight issues given their apparent biases.
The Nautilus Book Awards and Independent Publisher Book Awards articles are puff pieces. They need to be rewritten from independent sources or stubbed. --Ronz (talk) 16:42, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Not much to work with. Seems it is hard to find an award these days that actually has information from third-party sources.
Let's see if anyone in this WikiProject has any opinion on it. If no-one responds, I don't see what use it is to have a WikiProject about this any longer.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 20:59, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
It's a low-traffic / interest Project.. but worth keeping around. The best way to tell if an award is notable is if the award is followed by major reliable secondary sources, for example when the Booker Prize is announced, there are stories in the Guardian, BBC etc.. if sustained coverage exists over time it's probably notable. If not that doesn't mean lack of notability but raises questions. Nautilus Book Award doesn't have serious coverage it's local press, press releases, blogs. And it;s structured as a vanity award where recipients pay to receive an honor (marketing) - real awards pay the winner - not the other way around. -- GreenC 22:37, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, GreenC. And the Independent Publisher Book Awards?
If both are vanity awards with little deep coverage from secondary sources, shouldn't we start an AfD for their WP articles as has happened here?--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 13:20, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
You could try but they are not source-less so will require educating AfD voters on the nature of these awards. The 'vanity award' has some useful info generally defined as "high entry fees, with for-profit business models and numerous categories and promises of marketing", the IPPA award was setup by Jenkins Group, Inc as part of a package of marketing services, here is their complete list of services. Has high entry fees, lots of winners, promises of marketing, little coverage by mainstream media, for-profit business model. -- GreenC 14:18, 19 October 2017 (UTC)


I'm of the opinion it's sometimes better to keep the article as a platform to highlight the award's true nature, which does more good than keeping it in the dark through deletion.

Article split[edit]

I have started a discussion to split the article National Film Award – Special Jury Award / Special Mention (Feature Film). I hope WPAW members would spare some time to join the discussion. Regards. --Let There Be Sunshine (talk) 09:57, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
