Vanity. Non-notable. The most notable thing written in the article is that he has a Masters degree in History. Only Google hits are Wikipedia mirrors and an American 8th grader. --JamesTeterenko 19:42, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Comparing the current version with the original draft, I note that the date of birth, names of parents, location of birth, and school attended have all been changed since the article was posted. EvilPhoenix
Keep. An editor can be found, but with time this article will improve. I think you need to give it a better chance. Also, just because it does not return any results from google, I do not believe that to be a valid reason for deletion; the guy just does not have any pages made about him! In addition, what do you consider to be 'vanity'? Are not all biographies made for vanity? NO, the purpose of them is to inform you on a person's life, which is excatly what this is doing!

Keep. I've changed my vote after I made a major cleanup effort on this article. It now reads much better, has no spelling errors, and is ready to be built on. Harro5 22:58, May 13, 2005 (UTC)
I agree that it is now more readable. However, what makes this person notable enough for a Wikipedia entry? -- JamesTeterenko 23:29, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
Delete, not notable. Megan1967 00:57, 14 May 2005 (UTC)
Delete, importance is not explained and its content is chiefly vanity cruft. 119 02:06, 14 May 2005 (UTC)
Is this person verifiable? Although Macarro is supposed to be notable (according to this article) as a scholar, the article has virtually no information about his scholarly career and, as stated above, Google yields no information about Macarro as a scholar. Also note that the cause and place of his death is given, but no date of death, which leads me to wonder whether Daniel Macarro as described in this article actually existed. Unless his existence is confirmed somehow, delete. --Metropolitan90 03:14, May 14, 2005 (UTC)
Delete, hoax. Zero Google hits for "Daniel Juan José Mártin Macarro", and only four hits for "Daniel Macarro", of which two are Wikipedia mirrors and the other two have nothing to do with this person. Wouldn't his name by Martín, anyway, not Mártin? Also note that the very original version of the story was entirely different from the current version. RickK 04:43, May 14, 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Not verifiable. The article editing history does not inspire confidence either. Quale 07:31, 14 May 2005 (UTC)
After reading the original version of this page and seeing how it has changed without any references, this should be deleted. Also, feel free to voice your outrage at Macarro's featured article vote. Gee, this article looks like some awfully sneaky vandalism. Harro5 07:36, May 14, 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Not true. I am Daniel Macarro and this was a stupid joke played by friends of mine. They claim to be making it into the greatest article in wikipedia because they are morons, and yes the accent is over the i not the a.
Delete. Well i guess the secret is out. Its true that we [me and my friend] wrote this article as a joke. Its all fake!! Just go ahead and delete it...
You gotta give us props though... keeping it up as long as we did! 220.127.116.11 17:55, 17 May 2005 (UTC)
