Contested PROD. Article about a writing system that does not appear to be notable. Please see Talk:Keyscript for the author's argumentation in favour of the article being kept, as well as a list of links to websites where Keyscript is mentioned. Unfortunately, none of the sites is a reliable source (Best of the Web doesn't qualify I'm afraid), and only one of them ([1]) has more than a trivial mention of Keyscript, so the basic notability criterion of significant coverage in reliable independent sources (see WP:GNG) is not met. There is also no actual claim of notability per Wikipedia's definition in the article or in the reasoning on the talk page. That a number of people around the world have bought a product doesn't make the product notable. bonadea contributions talk 10:35, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

(Wasn't that already on your list of links?) That's corroborative evidence that it exists, but not everything mentioned in ephemeral discussions is "notable". —Tamfang (talk) 17:33, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
It's on the article's talk page, but was added there after this AfD was created, so I asked her to copy it here. --bonadea contributions talk 17:55, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
That is one person in a Usenet News Google Groups thread who talks about the system. Usenet Google Groups is a self-published source, not a reliable source, and the discussion is not particularly extensive in any case. As Tamfang says, it shows that the system exists (which was never in doubt :-) ) but not that it's notable. --bonadea contributions talk 17:55, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete - No coverage in reliable sources. When I searched for sourcing, any mention of Keyscript in reliable sources turned out to be about something else. -- Whpq (talk) 16:44, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
