This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion of the article below. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record.
The result of the debate was ambiguous. I count 18 clear "delete" votes, 12 clear "keep" votes (2 anons and 1 probable troll discounted) and 2 "merge" votes. While there is a clear majority to delete, there is not the overwhelming concensus necessary for deletion. The decision defaults to keep in some form.

Noting both the majority to delete, the current state of the article and the fact that "redirects" do not destroy history, I am going to be bold and merge and redirect this article. Rossami (talk) 05:49, 22 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Bellevue West High School[edit]

This is a high school, so I'm just going to say delete and see what consensus is this week. —Korath (Talk) 12:42, Mar 4, 2005 (UTC)

  • Very well, delete. Radiant! 13:29, Mar 4, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep then Kappa 14:17, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. BEEFSTEW score of 2 (A,D). A high school where there are sports teams and clubs. No apparent news events, notable alumni, or historical significance. --TenOfAllTrades | Talk 15:05, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Delete. Agree with Lucky, generic and uniformative. Non-notable. Gamaliel 07:34, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. The only useful bit of information in the entire thing is that Bellevue, Nebraska appears to have two high schools. This can be mentioned in the Bellevue, Nebraska article. Oh look, it already is. Average Earthman 23:10, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep' - SimonP 00:59, Mar 6, 2005 (UTC)
