{{nutshell|If a topic has received coverage in [[Wikipedia:Reliable sources|reliable]] [[Wikipedia:No original research#Primary, secondary, and tertiary sources|primary as well as at least one reliable secondary source]] [[Wikipedia:Verifiability#Sources|independent]] of the subject, it is presumed to satisfy the inclusion criteria for a stand-alone article.}}
 
 
Because Wikipedia’s community of [[Wikipedia:Editors matter|editors]] and readers is a diverse group with many varied interests, inclusion of articles on Wikipedia is based on objective evidence and appropriate sources, rather than on [[Wikipedia:Do not call things cruft|subjective feelings]] of importance or usefulness. In order to be included on Wikipedia, the content of our articles must be [[WP:V|verifiable]] through multiple [[WP:RS|reliable published sources]] with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy. In addition, it must be consistent with the kind of content found in [[WP:FIVE|general encyclopedias, specialized encyclopedias, almanacs, or gazetteers]], and avoid the kinds of content that [[Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not|Wikipedia is not]].
 
 
==Criteria for individual articles==
 
For a subject to be included as an article, it should be covered directly and in detail by at least two [[WP:RS|reliable sources]], including at least one secondary source, that are not just a directory listing. Lists are acceptable when their overall subject is verified through multiple [[WP:RS|reliable sources]] that are not just a mere directory listing.
 
 
*"Third-party" (also sometimes called "independent") specifically excludes all sources created by, licensed by, approved by, or compensated by the subject, or, in the case of a fictional topic, created by, licensed by, approved by, or compensated by the publishers, creators, authors, or illustrators of the subject;
 
*"Two" specifically excludes the numbers zero and one.
 
*"Directory listing" specifically excludes restaurant listings, censuses, atlases, and television guides.
 
 
==Cases where a stand-alone article might not be appropriate==
 
Generally speaking Wikipedia's purpose is to provide humanity with a comprehensive reference guide and catalog of human knowledge. As such, editors are encouraged to [[User:Fresheneesz/Don't Destroy|focus on article improvement, not deletion]], [[Wikipedia:Give an article a chance|give articles a realistic chance to develop]], keep in mind articles' [[Wikipedia:Potential, not just current state|potential and not just how they look now]], and [[Wikipedia:Don't demolish the house while it's still being built|not try to delete an article actively being improved]]; however, sometimes merging, redirecting, and even deletion may be appropriate.
 
 
===Merging and redirecting===
 
Verifiable content that cannot realistically grow beyond stub class may be [[WP:PRESERVE|merged]] with the stub [[User:T-rex/essays/the more redirects the better|redirected]] to the merge location. Per the GFDL, we cannot [[Wikipedia:Merge and delete|merge and delete]].
 
 
===Deletion===
 
While deletion is considered a [[Wikipedia:What isn't grounds for article deletion|last resort]], copyright violations, hoaxes, and libel will be removed and/or deleted.
 
 
==Countries with existing or former colonies and/or dependencies==
 
The below list of [[great powers|great]]- and [[superpowers|super]]-powers have historical ruled other countries as either colonies or dependencies. A number of these countries also have prominence as members of the United Nations security council and as members of the Group of 8 Economic Powers. Thus, their bilateral relations with most countries in the world are preseumed notable.

==Table of notable fictional universes==
 
The table below notes fictional universes for which fictional elements appear in comic books, universe-specific specialized encyclopedias, television shows, toys, novels, replicas, films, and video games. Fictional characters and weapons from these fictional universes are thus likely to be among the most notable of fictional characters and weapons, i.e. they meet a "common sense" standard of notability. As such, due to the fictional elements' appearances in mulitiple and diverse kinds of media, lists of characters, weapons, etc. for these particular franchises provide a navigational function to other articles and a location to which to merge content.

==Use common sense==
 
With regards to fictional elements, something that is verifiable and therefore not a hoax, nor libelous, nor a copyright violation almost always can at worst be redirected to the article on the main work of fiction. The idea that anything which millions of people are familiar with (such as playable characters in globally released [[multi-platform]] games) being either unimportant or non-notable is not just absurd and illogical, but idiocy. Just because something does not seem subjectively important to a handful of Wikipedians does not negate its relevance to countless others and if we know it is not just made up, but say have insufficient sources to construct development and reception sections, we would still at least redirect for the convenience of our diverse readership. Redlinking is reserved for that which we must protect the public from.
