Doesn't seem to pass the "random professor" test. -- Cyrius| 21:41, 8 Jun 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete - I was thinking about this one too. - Tεxτurε 22:07, 8 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Undecided Delete, apparently not notable. Amazon lookup on "Modern business statistics" shows that it's out of print, NO reader reviews, NO other reviews. "A Data-based Approach to Statistics" is also out of print, has a "book description" but again NO reader reviews and NO other reviews. Unclear why [User:Rossumcapek] inserted the article.

  • What's the "random professor" test? If this person has published a couple of scholarly books, then someone might want biographical information on him. For books of this type, I don't see Amazon as an important resource. Keep but I'm willing to be persuaded if there's some established policy that calls for deletion.

    • "Random professor" test is "Is this person more notable than the average random college professor?" -- Cyrius| 05:49, 12 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • I threw this together based on spotting a requested article for Latin hypercube sampling. Admittedly, there's not much here. Seems as though since someone requested the original article, a bit more biographical data on its creator might be welcome. I vote to keep this, but I have no real attachment to the article or the subject matter. Rossumcapek 20:42, 9 Jun 2004 (UTC)
It probably should include a--I've just put a--link back to the Latin hypercube sampling article; that at least makes it clear why this article was included. Dpbsmith 00:10, 10 Jun 2004 (UTC)
An oversight; thanks, Dpbsmith. This maybe a poor forum to ask, but is there a good way to contact the original Latin hypercube sampling] article requester for their opinion/contribution? Rossumcapek 05:24, 10 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep - he does seem to be a published author, and to have made some contribution to something someone has written an article on - why not? Mark Richards 06:51, 11 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep - a published author, Wikipedia is not paper and hard drive space is cheap. What's the point in deleting? 10:58, 12 Jun 2004
