Dispute: Removal of separate article for jargon term "green light"[edit]

My removal of a link to a separate (development stage) article for the jargon term "green light" according to the style manual has been disputed. Awaiting arbitration decision on removal.--John S. Peterson (talk) 06:57, 1 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]

"Green light" is a common term in the industry, especially when you're talking about Development and Pre-production. In fact it is the most common term for this specific meaning. Producers and screenwriters talk about getting a "green light". They don't use "looking for approval" or other generic phrases. The language is full of terms that could be replaced by another word. That doesn't mean those terms should be deleted from encyclopedias. There were dozens of articles that used the word and link Green-light until John S. Peterson suddenly removed them today. That indicates multiple other editors found the term to be appropriate. - Gothicfilm (talk) 02:06, 2 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]
