Wikipedia - proposal to delete all lower leagues Can't Post or Reply Privately

There is a new proposal to delete the Bristol and Avon League from Wikipedia which is the supposed lead for the deletion of a 100 or so leagues that some do not consider meet notability requirements. It is open to question whether the historical importance of many of these leagues is being given due importance.

This interesting debate is taking place at http://en.wikipedia.org/...stol_and_Avon_League if you wish to contribute. This is a debate for registered Wikipedia Editors as far as I am aware.

The deletion of the Bristol and Avon League has now been taken to another level and the article deletion debate can be viewed here http://en.wikipedia.org/...stol_and_Avon_League. It may seem trivial but many UK leagues are likely to follow the same route to the "recycle bin" - this initiative could drastically change English lower league football on Wikipedia.

NB: The original debate that led to this is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Football#League_Notability_inconsistencies
and http://en.wikipedia.org/...ional_Amateur_League

Never heard of the B & A league to be honest, but
it has just as much notability as Jedward or Jordan



Play-off programmes wanted: 2004 Basingstoke v Lewes. 2005 Droylsden v Kettering, Maldon v Barking, Maldon v Uxbridge. 2006 Brackley v Marlow, Kendal v Stocksbridge. 2007 Paulton v Taunton, Tooting v Hastings. 2008 Didcot v Oxford City, Tooting v Worthing, Sheffield v Stocksbridge. 2009 East Thurrock v Concord, Ilkeston v Kendal, Nantwich v Guiseley, Stocksbridge v Carlton. 2014 Tiverton v Paulton. 2015 Darlington v Bamber Bridge.

I cannot be arsed to go through all the links but why should 100 pages matter
a jot, when Wiki thingy has hundreds of thousands on the Net?
Hardly struggling with band width one would imagine.
