Delete; I almost speedied it, but I don't think vanity pages qualify for speedying. Antandrus (talk) 03:25, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Delete -- Wait a minute. A level 53 human paladin? Surely that qualifies for Wikifame (or what hope do I have?). --Tysto 03:29, 2005 Jun 3 (UTC)
Delete and why not speedy? We all know that no one is going to vote to keep this for legitimate reasons. --Barfooz(talk) 03:53, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Policy is here: Wikipedia:Deletion policy -- vanity articles are supposed to go through the VfD process. I seem to remember a squabble over changing the policy a few months ago, but it was decided not to make vanity speediable. Antandrus (talk) 03:58, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
The poll is at Wikipedia:Proposal_to_expand_WP:CSD/Proposal_III_(Vanity_articles). It failed with only 44% support while 80% was needed to pass. Basically many users preferred see ten blatant vanity articles go through a long VfD process and finally get deleted, in order to save the one article which looked like vanity but actually was notable. But this is clearly vanity, even with a level 53 human paladin, so delete from me. Sjakkalle (Check!) 06:48, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC) Redirect to Toni Collette is perhaps a better option yes.

In practice things like this do get speedied a lot, it fits under the "no claim to notability" criterion being proposed on the vfd talk page. Kappa 07:26, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
