Small company. Has received some mention in local newspapers but no really evidence of notability. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:44, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Weak delete. As mentioned in the article, there is some good coverage in this book (pp. 33-34). Still, I agree with RHaworth that the local newspaper mentions are not enough to prove notability, and in the absence of any other sources, I think this should be deleted. If anyone finds another solid source, though, I could be persuaded to change my mind. — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 10:42, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Company has 4 websites, www.10ticks.co.uk, www.10ticks.com.au, www.10ticks.co.za www.10ticks.com.my with partnerships in each region. If you can add the reference http://www.heinemann.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=149&Itemid=51 to the international book deal that could go some way to helping the page. Heinemann is an international publisher so this must surely add some credence. It is also part of a wider business Fisher Educational which owns www.websiteboffin.co.uk and www.boffinsquad.co.uk. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Georgejones277 (talkcontribs) 11:44, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, those things don't really make much difference to the outcome of deletion discussions. Have a look at Wikipedia's notability guidelines for companies to see the kind of thing we are looking for, or this page for a quick and easy explanation. You probably also want to read the arguments to avoid in deletion discussions. Best — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 12:13, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

There is another article here on the Times Education website http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=2216530 and a magazine article here http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=344376 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Georgejones277 (talkcontribs) 11:52, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the post Georgejones277, it is most useful. The TES is a very respectable source, of course, and if these were normal newspaper articles then they would be a strong indicator of notability. However, from the tone and the advertisements at the end, I can't shake the feeling that these must be press releases. Press releases definitely do not count towards notability, I'm afraid. Do others agree with my assessment, and have TES been known to do this before? I am surprised to see what look like press releases on their site. — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 12:10, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • As the editor who originally nommed this for speedy before RHaworth took that down, delete per RHaworth. Specs112 t c 12:23, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

The TES is not a press release, the school one in particular was done between the TES and a local school. 10ticks also appears in a journal article and a book which uses it to research e-businesses. The innovate my school ad should also go some way to completing this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Georgejones277 (talkcontribs) 12:53, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
