The content in this list is unable to be verified. Any single can get a platinum certification in Australia but doesn't actually reflect the sales of it. Read these two articles for more info. [1] [2] Till I Go Home talk stalk 12:19, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Speedy keep all information verified by the Australian music industry and a Platinum record is given at 70,000 sales so your argument is flawedSeasider91 (talk) 13:09, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
    • SOrry but your argument is flawed. Australian certifications are based on shipments, not sales. There's a difference. Unless documented by a reliable source, no-one will ever know what the best-selling singles of Australia are. Till I Go Home talk stalk 13:26, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep and explain criteria used. --Colapeninsula (talk) 15:06, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Per WP:DEL#REASON: "Articles for which thorough attempts to find reliable sources to verify them have failed". In this case there are no reliable sources that can prove that these are the best-selling singles of Australia, as certifications are based on shipments (i.e. a single may have recieved Platinum certification which is 70,000 shipments, but in reality may have only sold 20,000 copies). How about providing an actual rationale for voting 'keep', so that your comment has some weight to the discussion in question? Till I Go Home talk stalk 15:24, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Rename List of singles certified platinum in Australia. That should hopefully satisfy Til I Go Home's objection. (Platinum vs. quadruple platinum to be less arbitrary.) Clarityfiend (talk) 23:21, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
    • That's better since we're not claiming that the singles have sold a particular amount which is unverifiable (i've said that so many times! Lol). Till I Go Home talk stalk 03:31, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep Labels buy singles certifications when singles cross thresholds. Welcome to the Digital Era. · Mcdonalds (talk · cont), at 02:53, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
    • According to whom? ARIA says that they certify recordings based on shipments. Till I Go Home talk stalk 03:31, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
      • Because ARIA Singles Certifications merge both physical and digital copies though physical represent almost nothing but physical singles still exist and since it's the same certification, ARIA can't clearly say "based on sales". · Mcdonalds (talk · cont), at 15:30, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
