Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Seph'd

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A dicdef neologism. Gets 492 hits on Google, and Google searches for "Seph D", and not Seph'd. So I'd assume that upwards of 80% of those hits are not "seph'd", but "Seph D" of some kind. For a word that originated online, you'd expect it to have more online hits. PMC 00:50, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • ADDED INFO: Seph'd isn't technically an online word. It's a slang term used in as many as two forums. Plus, Google reports the originating site back as the first two hits when searching for it. --LiQuiDpLasMaFloW --comment by User:, creator of the Seph'd article

  • Delete, slang terms used in "as many as two forums" are not encyclopedia material. --Stormie 01:02, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. Agree. Andrewa 01:31, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Leave. Hmm... let's see here: now it's on Wikipedia, so MAYBE, just MAYBE more people will see it, and use it (at which point it DOES become encyclopedia material). Think about it, folks. -- 03:20, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment: No MAYBEs about it, you're quite right, Wikipedia is an excellent place to promote neologisms such as this, and also to promote websites, unsigned bands, lots of things, so much so that if we allowed such promotions we'd have little time or bandwidth for anything else. Which is one reason we leave this to other sites, and explicitly ban it here. No change of vote. Andrewa 03:42, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Delete non-notable. It looks to be used in only one (or maybe two) forums. --Deathphoenix 14:38, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
