I have a huge request. Long story short, I came across Americade (band) via the article for Gerard de Marigny, which is up for AfD and is incredibly promotional and has issues with notability. de Marigny looks to be non-notable enough for his own article and I'm concerned that this band is also non-notable. The article is almost completely unsourced and would require a substantial re-write from head to toe to remove all of the promotional puffery. I'm honestly debating taking it to AfD just to get it nuked, since I don't know that there's much here that would be salvageable.
Anyone want to take a whack at cleaning it up and saving it? If you do, take any and all claims in the article with a huge grain of salt, as the editor who created the article (who appears to be de Marigny) seems to like taking non-notable claims and puffing them up to seem notable. For example, he tried using video views for a YouTube video as a sign of notability, tried using the presence of de Marigny's quotes in quotation websites (where anyone can add content) as a sign, and so on. Something that might seem notable in the article might end up being something that actually isn't as far as Wikipedia is concerned. Tokyogirl79(ï½¡ââ¿âï½¡) 07:04, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Would somebody from WP:ROCK mind taking a look at this stub and assessing it. The file was prod'd for deletion by Marvellous Spider-Man, but it was removed by an IP who seems to be associated with the band. I think this might be a case of WP:TOOSOON since none of the sources (except maybe one) are independent or appropriate for establishing notability. I googled the band, but all I could find were social media accounts or other trivial mentions. I was going to take it to AfD, but figured I'd ask for feedback here first in case I am missing something. FWIW, I am posting here because the band seems to a rock band of some type. Thank in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 23:32, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
