Na'vi language article proposed for deletion on Wikipedia

Sunday, December 27, 2009

Heh. See the discussion here. The page is obviously not going to be deleted but this is a good example of what happens when the letter of the law is followed (i.e. the argument that one movie = one source and therefore not notable, plus the fact that there is as of yet only one fluent speaker) and not the spirit. Of course, there are also dozens of articles in the mainstream media on the language itself so there is no way the article is going to be deleted, but be sure to watch that page as the discussion unfolds.

There are dozens of articles in the news and many people fired up about learning the language NOW, but there's no guarantee that the same will be true six months or even one month down the road.

Don't get me wrong—I'm against deleting the page—but I also don't see any convincing argument FOR notability. Not yet.
