Keep. It seems to be active, judging from its history and talk pages, and it's mentioned on several individual criterion pages, such as monotonicity criterion and participation criterion. It may be present in published literature under a different name, but that's not a reason to delete. -- Brhaspati\talk/contribs 00:17, 2005 Apr 13 (UTC)
The reason it is referenced on so many pages is that the person who invented Majority Choice Approval contributed to most of those pages. The term does not come from published literature, but the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, where obscure methods known by nobody else are debated endlessly. They have already set up Electowiki for this kind of information. If it is deleted, I will look for references in other articles and remove them. RSpeer 00:29, Apr 13, 2005 (UTC)
Delete, original research, vanity. RickK 05:12, Apr 13, 2005 (UTC)
I don't think there being worse articles is a reason to keep this article, which completely fails Wikipedia's standards of notability. I will put the other articles up for VfD soon.RSpeer 01:04, Apr 25, 2005 (UTC)
Never mind about VfDing the others. After a bit of Googling, it seems that Mike Ossipoff's criteria have been quoted by numerous websites. Even if the criteria are flawed, I think we have to consider them notable, so I won't VfD them. Majority Choice Approval, on the other hand, is still not notable. RSpeer 01:16, Apr 25, 2005 (UTC)
Keep. I agree this article needs some thoughtful editing, but deleting it would remove valuable information.--Fahrenheit451 21:35, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
