02:48:06, 11 January 2019 review of submission by DanGBE[edit]

I have added new references from the school's own website and a couple of external websites, after reviewing other school pages there are not much different then this one! It would be appreciated if you can provide anymore advice of edits that can be done to help publish this page?

DanGBE (talk) 02:48, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Your draft fails WP:NSCHOOL. It requires significant coverage of independent, secondary sources. The school's official website is a primary source and is not a reliable source. More info left on your talk page Abelmoschus Esculentus (talkcontribs) 06:37, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

04:17:03, 11 January 2019 review of draft by Warren.williams[edit]

Hi, I'm new at creating pages in Wikipedia, and just want to make sure I'm approaching this the right way. I noticed that John Salter recently died, and that he doesn't have a Wikipedia page. He was a key figure during the civil rights era in the southern US. He is in one of the iconic photographs from that era, the sit-in at the Woolworth's lunch counter in Jackson, Mississippi in 1963, and his name appears in several exhibits in the new Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

Anyhow, two questions:

(1) as I create the page and make changes, Wikipedia is saving each of those changes as an update. Is there a better way to go about the initial creation and tweaking of the page without piling up a bunch of versions in the history?

(2) the photo, taken by Jackson Daily News photographer Fred Blackwell in 1963, is pretty widely used on the web, but I can't seem to find the photo in Wikimedia Commons. Do you have any suggestions for adding that photo? (i.e. either obtaining permission, or determining whether it is "fair use" or public domain at this point?)

Request on 04:53:38, 11 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Ryozzo[edit]

Hi I'd like some assistance on this article. Every single part of the article is supported by the citations.

But the reviewer wrote "Large sections remain unreferenced."

Can you help me understand. I put the citation at the end of the table or paragraphs. Am I to duplicate the citation on every paragraph or sentence?

Also there are seven citations from the New York Times. Can you help me understand what else is needed?

Also there are citations from the New York Senate official law text. This is an article about tax laws that affect millions of people which is why I cite the New York Senate official law text but make it more understandable with words and examples.

I believe, it is also notable because it is in the New York Times and affects millions of people. Ryozzo (talk) 04:53, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I'm trying to add geographic coordinates at the top of the page and I don't understand how to it. I tried 18°9′N 99°22′W / 18.150°N 99.367°W / 18.150; -99.367 Since this is decimal, should I write 18°54′N 99°13′W / 18.9°N 99.22°W / 18.9; -99.22? Exactly where do I put this on the page? Thanks.

Duplicate post with promotional material Abelmoschus Esculentus (talkcontribs) 08:28, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.

For so the Lord has commanded us saying, `I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles, so that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth’ [Acts 13:47] The command of the Lord to spread the Word of God and to bring salvation to each and every soul is the mission of Ishvani Television. Realizing the power of television, as the world’s most powerful medium of communication, and also a key part of the society The Diocese of Ujjain cultivated a dream of giving wings to the Media and Communication Ministry of the Diocese Navdarshan Sanchar Kendra and initiated its television ministry. The humble evangelization effort sprouted with a 30 minute program and name given was Vachan Sudha, which was telecasted through Siti Cable. The program basically included sermons by the priests. Enthusiastic with the positive response the program was receiving and also understanding the need of the faithful The Diocese of Ujjain decided to convert the small effort into a 24x7 hour channel so that it can shed Light of the Lord where there is dark, ignorance and hatred. But with this decision the need for a studio was greatly felt as for a channel there was need of series of copious programs. The Studio received approval from Rev Bishop Mar.Sabestian Vadakel and the channel was Christened Ishvani Television. The newly constructed studio was inaugurated on July 16, 2015 and Rev Bishop handed the command of Ishvani Television to Rev Father Vineesh Mathew. The dedication of the director Rev Father Vineesh Mathew and the staff bore fruit and the first shooting in studio was done on July 29 2015 marking the advent of new era of evangelization through mass media. The first program was educational interactive program shot with teachers and students of St Paul’s Convent school , Ujjain. The challenge was evermore increasing as the channel if telecasted 24x7 required lot of programs. The director along with the staff chalked the strategy and made the outline of new programs which webbed the interest of the people along with the strong message to spread the Word of God. A series of new programs were launched by Ishvani Television. The 24x7 hour channel started on The Feast Day of Mother Mary December 8th 2015 and this blossomed the only Hindi Christian Devotional channel in North India. The non commercial channel with the sole motive of bringing the salvation through Lord to every person irrespective of caste, creed and sect was expanding and thus the need for expansion of the building was also felt. At every step there were challenges and at every step Lord and Mother Mary in whose hands Ishvani Television dwells supported and took Ishvani Television to new heights. The Ishvani Television was soon telecasted in the states of Madhya Pradesh , Chattisgarh, Rajasthan and NCR through Siti Cable network. A series of programs including Vachan Sudha, Divine Symphony, Jesus kids, Tere Liye, Bible Frames, Voice of Youth were telecasted. Releasing the power of radio Ishvani Television soon chalked out the launching of Ishvani Radio and the Radio Ministry successfully started on August 8 , 2017. But the vision of the Director and the commitment was to reach to the hearts of thousands crossing the limit of states and telecasting. The persistent efforts yielded result and Ishvani Television was soon available to the people at just click of a button through Ishvani Television mobile App launched on February 1, 2018. At present the expansion of Ishvani Television with its ministries including Radio Ministry, Prayer Ministry is under the pipeline. Also the plan to kick start Ishvani Magazine and efforts to make Ishvani Television a satellite channel are under progress.

08:42:43, 11 January 2019 review of submission by LA-KNOWS-THINGS-2[edit]

Hello and thank you for this review. There are two *completely different* Ellen Reid's... two different human beings deserving of two separate entries. The person I'm trying to make an entry for is Ellen Reid– the AMERICAN composer. The American Ellen Reid is one of the most exciting composers of her generation. She is the only female composer to have her works performed at all three major opera venues in Los Angeles. Since I first submitted her entry, she's received even more press for her latest opera PRISM. There are very few female composers and it's incredibly important that we give them credit.

09:05:43, 11 January 2019 review of submission by Vanessa.koenig[edit]

Hello, I'm having great difficulty adding a wikipedia page for the organisation that I work for the European Corporate Governance Institute(ECGI). We had a wikipedia page before for years, but after I added some new material to it, it was deleted for copyright reasons. Following this I set up a draft page for ECGI. I rewrote and reworded the information from our website in order to surpass these copyright rules. However the draft version was rejected and I have been given a warning that if I submit a page again with copied material I will be suspended. Can you please advise how I should go about setting up a wiki page for ECGI? We have been without one for over a year now, and I have tried hard to rewrite the information contained on our website. However as I'm sure you will understand there are only so many ways to describe what we do. I'm extremely frustrated with this process and would appreciate any help you may be able to offer me. Thanks.

Vanessa.koenig (talk) 09:05, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

We do not care what the ECGI has to say about itself. We want to know what other, reliable sources without a conflict of interest have to say about the ECGI. What does academe say about you? What does Europe's financial press say about you? If nobody else has written about them, then maybe they are too obscure to appear here. --Orange Mike | Talk 13:30, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
User:Vanessa.koenig - If you are trying to use Wikipedia as your organization's web page, it would be a better idea simply to host your own web page. It doesn't cost much, and is under your control. Wikipedia is not a web host. Robert McClenon (talk) 16:26, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

12:08:58, 11 January 2019 review of submission by David Appleyard[edit]

We have been researching Frank A. Russell for a long time and would like to bring him to the attention of the world. We have a lot of newspaper documents and photographs but very few are published online. Only the ones presented via the given links.

We feel that his links to the hoax's of the 1950's and the development of a belief in UFO phenomena is relevant.

How can we improve the document please>?

RS means reliable sources. I suggest you to take some time clicking into the link and understanding what is notability.

Specific details as to exactly where the non-neutral parts exist would be helpful to improve the following draft:

Also, is there a minimum number of independent, reliable, published sources that needs to be cited for the article to be considered "pass worthy"? Is so, that number would be useful to know or at the very least, indicate which citations in the draft are considered non-independent or unreliable. Thank you. (talk) 15:17, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

I'm working on this page for the conductor of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, Arie Lipsky. I have just noticed that the article was declined as it "requires significant coverage in independent reliable sources." If possible, could you please clarify this further? Does this require significant changes to the content of the article? I have used other conductors' wiki articles as a templet for this page and would love to get this page up as soon as possible.

Request on 17:26:10, 11 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Fashionmgmt[edit]

Jazz Egger is internationally known for constantly being active in the fashion industry as an activist. There are hundreds of articles that talk about different campaigns she did and the events she is known for. She is by no means only known for "one event". Feel free to google her and you will see for yourself. When googling Jazz Egger one of the first few suggestions by Google is "Jazz Egger Wikipedia", that was the reason why I wanted to create a Wiki page for her, because it looks like many people are looking for it. The sources I added are very high profile. What can I do in order for it to be accepted? Thanks

Fashionmgmt (talk) 17:26, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

@Fashionmgmt: - I would probably agree that WP:BLP1E doesn't factor here, though the argument could be made unless you can show there was significant coverage for both areas that made her make the news (behind the scenes and the sexual exploitation).
More importantly - Cosmo is a good source. However, while you should keep all the references, for purposes of counting notability it can only count once. Even in different languages it can't be independent from itself, so it could just be one source over-selling one of its stories.
I'd suggest finding another 2 good sources on the latter story as the best way to solve two problems at once.

Request on 17:46:16, 11 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by IrfanAli512[edit]

I am requesting assistance to improve the article further for the purpose of sufficient notability.

Article of concern: Ascentium Capital

Submission rejection reason: not sufficiently notable for inclusion in Wikipedia

It seems sufficient notability can be described as such: “Deep or significant coverage provides an overview, description, commentary, survey, study, discussion, analysis, or evaluation of the product, company, or organization.” Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies)

Further, I believe the sources listed qualify as quality content—“Quantity does not determine significance. It is the quality of the content that governs.”

Here are few examples of quality references: Reference 4, The Wall Street Journal; Reference 10, Michigan Saves; Reference 16, The Monitor; and Reference 15, Houston Business Journal

Thank you for your help! IrfanAli512 (talk) 17:46, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

@IrfanAli512: - hi there. Firstly, thank you for listing what you think are the best sources, it saves considerable time. I sometimes do it on the talk page of long-ref articles I've gone through/created. Critically, I'm only considering the notability issue in the top 3/4
So firstly, I've no idea what is going on with ref 4 - it's got 3 references built into it. For now, I'll call them 4.1, 4.2 & 4.3
However, I looked at all 3 plus the others. I'm reticent about the monitor daily's reliability as it looks to have independent issues from the topics its reporting on. Several others are problematic. I also had a look at the other WMJ sources, which were of less use.
However, refs 4.1 & 4.2 are of high quality and more than satisfy WP:CORPDEPTH. I believe that Houston Business journals is an adequately reliable source, given a look in-wiki and at their set-up. It took a degree of chicanery but I finally got access. Thus source 15 was also decent.
Corporate notability rules are much stricter than a general article's. I would say I am about 75% confident that corporate notability is satisfied. I do think the notability rejection is probably not justified at this point - it's not clear you can't find other good coverage.
Now the rest... - @K.e.coffman: is undoubtedly right as regards a heavily promotional article. While you have declared your paid editing, it is rather pointless if you can't write an article that is neutral. There is coverage in the various sources - include details on what the company does, we don't need a run down on the best things done or awards given. Include both positive and negative details. As a Paid Editor your draft will be examined in detail for issues. Nosebagbear (talk) 23:26, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
@Nosebagbear: Hi, thank you for taking the time to review the draft article and providing insights on how to further improve this article. Could you provide insight on how this article can meet the neutrality requirement? Or, would there be a Wikipedia directory/page where I can list this draft so that I can get help in meeting neutrality? IrfanAli512 (talk) 17:05, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

21:32:50, 11 January 2019 review of submission by Heeheemalu[edit]

Taichung is a city in Taiwan, so the subject of this article does not already exist in Wikipedia. This article aims to give more detailed information on skyscrapers in Taichung specifically, including the history of their creations with respect to Taiwan's economy, which would be irrelevant to put in the List_of_tallest_buildings_in_Taiwan page as it is too specific. Also, other large cities in Taiwan (e.g. Taipei, Kaohsiung) all have their own specific page dedicated to skyscrapers, so there is no reason to deny Taichung, which is arguably second/ third largest city in Taiwan.

Heeheemalu (talk) 21:32, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

@Heeheemalu: - firstly saying "other stuff exists" doesn't support article existence (it could demonstrate others shouldn't, or we may be caught in a "where to call the separation" issue)
There are two massive issues as to why this draft was rejected. Being a "ContentFork" (taking content that is in one big article and giving it its own article) and a complete lack of sources
The second is the total killer - you need sources that cover all your buildings (they may be congregated together in a few sources, or not) and they need to be reliable. There are some sourcing issues with the Taiwan-wide article, so be careful on relying just on that.
The original reviewer gave a few thoughts on Contentforks that it's worth dropping at least a couple of messages with. Make sure to justify why there's sufficient need for Taichung to have a list Nosebagbear (talk) 23:34, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

13:09:47, 12 January 2019 review of submission by Eltham girly[edit]

I am requeting a review because this individual has been an significant activist holding senior official roles in UK environmental campaigns since the 1970s and standing as a candidate for a political party in UK general elections. He is a commentator on travel which the BBC have used.

The rejection suggested that this was self promotion.

This is wrong. I have no association with the subject of the article.

If fact, I would say that there are aspects of inconsistency in his widely reported public comments and his private actions and that is one of the reasons an entry is in fact needed. To collect balanced information about a person with significant profile, but with unscientific attitudes and inconsistency in his actions

Eltham girly (talk) 13:09, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

@Eltham girly: - the rejection didn't say it was PROMO that stopped the draft. It gave two main reasons - failure to satisfy notability and a specific issue that because most of the sources, especially those from reliable sources, were interviews and thus not independent (which is the case, regardless of who writes the article)
I agree on the notability grounds - being a candidate is specifically not enough under our strict political notability rules. Just starting Avon's wing of friends of the earth would also not appear to be sufficient. There does not appear to be sufficient reliable & independent coverage of his business work to meet notability that way either. Nosebagbear (talk) 14:00, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
@Nosebanger:He has been the Vice Chairman of the national UK Organic Movement's main organization, set up a significant publishing business, been active in movements for Employee Ownership, is a commentator. The candidacy for the Green Party is an aspect of his notability, but it is not the justification for his inclusion. IF your issue is with the sources then we can work on that and I dare say that we can get there because he is a significant figure about whom much is written in respected papers etc. When he dies he will have obituaries in the major UK papers. I think you must acssept he is noteworthy enough. I am happy to redraft a draft article (when I have time)... for review again... but I an unhappy about you switching this off without further debate. I would go so far as to say that his contributions on environment policy which are inconsistent and widely reported are themselves a very good reason to have an balanced article on him
@Eltham girly: - Nosebanger is such a good name I'm not regretting not selecting it! But as an FYI the system won't ping me without my actual nickname.
There might well be coverage of the organic movement's organisation, but the position doesn't mean there are reliable, in-depth, secondary sources that actually write about him. He might well get quoted, or even interviewed, but neither will provide notability. A fairly fundamental rule is WP:INHERITED - which means that just because an organisation is notable, that its officers must be (bands and musicians, parents and children etc).
Him being written about as a controversial figure may well be the best source of actual writing about him. If you can find better sources then I wish you luck. However as a body we not equipped to judge each topic's importance (or at least, to agree on it). That is why notability is required, however important or unimportant.

17:30:00, 12 January 2019 review of draft by Collystrings[edit]

Hi, I'm getting in touch because I have had an article submission declined for reasons I would like to dispute.

Editors have claimed the article on TV presenter Jonny Nelson ( does not meet sufficient coverage or sources, but from my reckoning, the sources provided for the article are far more detailed and have shown more coverage than most presenter articles I have read on Wikipedia.

Contemporary presenters from the same field, Ben Shires ( and Lindsay Russell ( to name two, appear to have far fewer sources and yet existing, non-disputed Wikipedia pages.

Recently editor 'Buidhe' claimed to have "checked some" of the sources provided and found the subject appeared merely in passing mentions, but if they were to have read through all of them, they would have found a vast array of different sources relative to the small size of the article submitted, and several to be detailed on the subject's background alone (that is to say, not a "passing mention" by any estimation).

After several draft edits, I am beginning to feel aggrieved that editors are not carrying out due diligence in their deliberations of new Wikipedia articles.

Collystrings (talk) 17:30, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Collystrings. Wikipedia is forever a work in progress. It contains high quality articles and poor quality articles. The existence of articles that do not meet Wikipedia's policies and guidelines does not mean they are welcome. It may simply mean that no one has gotten around to deleting them yet. They are not a good excuse to create more such articles. The essay WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS may help you understand why. If you wish to learn from example articles, be sure to use only Wikipedia's best.
Examining a random sample of the cited sources: Lancashire Evening Post, Radio Times, The Times, Newsaroud, and Manchester Evening News are trivial mentions. Bounce is a primary source interview without analysis by the interviewer. None of these six count towards demonstrating notability. Putting them in the draft looks like an attempt at bombardment or citation overkill - trying to hide that the subject is not notable. A better approach would be to follow the advice in essay WP:THREE. --Worldbruce (talk) 18:44, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

@Mccheers: - the reviewer is correct that there does not appear to be any indication of Wikipedia notability. Have a read of Band notability - if you think the band does meet any of these criteria, then look for sources to demonstrate it. If not, then the band does not currently warrant an article.

The comment left by the reviewer was:

Fails WP:NBOOK, requires significant coverage in multiple independent reliable secondary sources. GoodReads is user generated without any independent editorial oversight and therefore not an acceptable source.

Why is my article deleted? I am promoting a new celebrity, therefore sources are very minimal due to the fact that this celebrity is brand new to the community. Online sources are very little and is difficult to find any references to back up my article. Please have my article reviewed again.

That's exactly why your draft is deleted. Wikipedia is not the place for promotion. If there are too few sources online, you may try book sources. If there are still too few sources, then it does not qualify for an article alone. Abelmoschus Esculentus (talkcontribs) 08:19, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

@Antonkang: - we are not designed to be the first site to possess information.

12:30:40, 13 January 2019 review of submission by Soumya146[edit]

In the article i want to put a timeline[begin time-end time] of each kings of breton form the time of Brutus. Which is relevant in both Geoffrey of Monmouth and bill cooper's book "After the flood". It is necessary to put a time-line on each event so that we can actually understand the time period of the kings. The article seems to miss the timeline to it because it has only time range like (for example:20 years) but not the begin or ending period.The time range of every king in Geoffrey of Monmouth's "Historia Regum Britanniae" and Bill Cooper's "After the Flood" is actually same.Again the reference of the book is in wikipedia by page name "". So why it is there in the first place if not reliable. So in my opinion it will only enrich the original table by adding this extra information. Soumya146 (talk) 12:30, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

I made many modification to the article based on HighKing (talk · contribs)'s suggestions. He also helped editing it and getting it to the high quality state it is now. He was going to approve it, but another editor intervened our of nowhere and decided it is not notable. I'm afraid now with two declines no one will one want to approve it, although as you can learn from my talk page I did provide good reasons this article is notable for creation. This is my first contribution to Wikipedia and so far besides the help from HighKing (talk · contribs) it is a very unwelcoming experience.

Code4Coffee (talk) 14:41, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

@Code4Coffee: Welcome and sorry that you are feeling unwelcomed. Creating a new article is one of the most difficult things to do on Wikipedia, and you should not take anything personally. Wikipedia gets thousands of potential new articles per day so only ones that are completely ready will make the cut. Unfortunately, some people come to Wikipedia with the purpose of promoting their business, which is one of the things that Wikipedia is not (WP:NOTPROMO). We get a lot of article submissions with a lot of references to minor awards and rounds of funding sourced to press releases, because editors think that more citations and more text will make the article look impressive. Unfortunately for them, press releases or articles based on press releases do nothing to establish how notable a company is (see WP:CORPDEPTH), and actually makes it harder for reviewers to determine how notable a company is. This a kind of reference bombing that reflects poorly on the article. Here are my suggestions. First, answer the notice on your talk page asking if you have a WP:COI with regards to this company, and second, remove everything in your article sourced to a press release, an article based on a press release, or a "Companies to Watch" article, and only include the information found in your 2 or 3 best sources such as Forrester Research. Delete everything else. Good luck, shoy (reactions) 21:16, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

09:40:23, 14 January 2019 review of draft by Alireza1357[edit]

Hi all, I created a page for Bahram Ghassemi based on a page for the same person on the Persian wikipedia. I added a source now but the original article in Persian doesn't have many sources either. From the listed sources, at the bottom of the Persian page, 2 or 3 don't work and it doesn't seem that all the information in the page is cited in the article. My point is, if the English article is not good enough because of a lack of citations, the Persian one has by far less citations relative to the amount of information it offers. I don't know the rules, but it seems to me we should keep it consistent between the different wikis. Thank you for your help and time.

Alireza1357 (talk) 09:40, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Declined English Wikipedia is not Persian Wikipedia. We have (probably) much stricter policies on our content. There's no policy in meta or anywhere which states that all articles must be kept consistent throughout all wikis. I'm glad that you finally added a reference to it, but I think more information about the subject can be provided and adding one source isn't enough to satisfy WP:ANYBIO. Abelmoschus Esculentus (talkcontribs) 09:49, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Abelmoschus Esculentus That's OK. I just wanted to add something to the wiki, thinking it would be of value since he has already a relatively comprehensive page on the Persian and Arabic wiki and is spokesperson for the Iranian foreign ministry since about two years and has had a variety of diplomatic posts for years. There aren't many English sources about him, other than news reports and his statements obviously. I don't know how to delete the page from Draft. Would really appreciate if you could do that for me or show me how to do it. Thanks Alireza1357 (talk) 16:59, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

The article has been turned down because: they do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject - So, do I just need to include more references. The musician in question has numerous mentions in magazines such as DJ magazine and other Main Street publications and is played on the BBC, so I'm not sure why it was turned down. I am trying to create pages for a number of notable UK rap artists. So my question is do I need more references ? Thank you Aflec1 (talk) 14:23, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Request on 19:09:20, 14 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Mirella Silva[edit]

Hello wikipedia team, I'm on a personal mission to try to bring more visibility to emerging artists in Latin America as I notice that there is a huge gab in this particular area specifically on the english version of wikipedia. I've read about the recent progresses that a scientist was making on trying to lower the gender gap in science place by adding important scientist woman to wikipedia, and I thought it would be a good idea to do the same thing for artists that have already received a great deal of national recognition.

Being a journalist myself, I got to write some articles about some of those artist, and i was wondering if this is the reason why this post got rejected, as I signed two of his articles.

I am not a pr person, so what would be a good way to re-write this article, making it more 'neutral'? I pretty much re-wrote what some of those magazines/newspapers did write about his work so I'm not sure on how would I be able to proceed moving forward. Some of the references are from smaller publications that helped me to fill the gap when I couldn't find the best references, But there are several well known and credible Brazilian newspapers, websites and magazines on the list, so I was quite surprised that they wouldn't work.

Is there any feedback I could take in consideration?

Thank you! Sincerely, Mirela

My article appears to have been reviewed within seconds by Robert McClenon, but please tell me how I can contact him. He says I need a lead sentence (he types lede sentence, but this must be what he means) In fact the second sentence explains that Susan Vernon is a pioneer conference interpreter, but this could be moved to second sentence if desired. Then he says that I am too closely connected to the subject. However I quote many references to academic papers about her; her relevance to interpreting is easily verified, even by a current exhibition at the university of Salamanca.

I wrote lede sentence because that is the specialized spelling that we use in Wikipedia. I meant to state in the first sentence that she is or was an interpreter.

Request on 22:01:37, 14 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Mutarjam[edit]

The article (which was literally a translation of the equivalent article on Arabic Wikipedia except I added a few sources) was declined because it didn't represent a proverb, and I didn't provide enough sources supporting my article. I would like to include the information SOMEWHERE on English Wikipedia since it explains a common coinage in Arabic (both the "faithful friend" and the "four impossible things"). I have several questions:

  • Is the only significant difference between my draft and Say Uncle that my article describes a non-English expression? (which might be a perfectly good reason).
  • Would the sourcing I currently have in the article be sufficient to add to List of idioms of improbability
  • I had hoped to include a link to the Arabic article on the language menu on the side. Can I still do that if the title of the article is a list like List of idioms of improbability? Mutarjam (talk) 22:01, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Mutarjam (talk) 22:01, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Mutarjam.
  • It usually isn't productive to compare drafts to articles unless the latter have gone through a formal process such as WP:GA or WP:FA. The essay WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS may help you understand why. The difference between the state of the two pages has nothing to do with the draft being about a non-English expression.
  • The Cultural Analysis source is a good one. The expression is not a perfect fit with List of idioms of improbability, but I think you could include it there.
  • Links on the left are only for equivalent topics, in other words an Arabic version of the list, not this specific expression. You may, however, link to it in the text – الخل الوفي ("faithful friend") ...

@The Great Yan: You are welcome to use your sandbox as a place to experiment. However the only content there at the moment is a line of text saying "This is my sandbox Place.

Hello, I noticed my article got declined due to suspicion of COI. At first I didn't understand why, but after doing a more thorough research of wording, I realized my mistakes and is already working on a more clinical edit of the text. I can guarantee you, that I have absolutely no personal relationship with Ms.Daiane Sodre and I'm definitely not getting paid to create an article about her. Please let me know how to proceed with the editing and what I have to do. I appreciate all your help! :-) Thank you! DaiPedia2018 (talk) 18:42, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

@DaiPedia2018: Please read WP:NMODEL, Help:Referencing for beginners and WP:EXT. Curb Safe Charmer (talk) 20:48, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

@DaiPedia2018: hello. While Draft:Daiane_Sodre has not been tagged for having any COI issues, I do remember tagging Draft:Daiane_Sodre (2) with COI and UDP tags. I did this after noticing an image your used in the draft ([1]) was furnished to you my an established photographer; to me, this indicated a possible conflict of interest, as OTRS confirmed at the WMC that the release of the image was legitimate. I asked you about this on your talk page, but never recieved a response to my COI inquest. Some clarification on your part would be welcome, and will impact on how we move forward in this situation.--SamHolt6 @SamHolt6: I already sent the below to you in another place, but since this is all new to me, I'll post the same reply here. Hopefully we'll communicate one way or the other. I apologize for my mistakes, but have read as much as I could about how to communicate on the Talk page. Hopefully it works? First I want to apologize for not responding to your message above. Unfortunately I had a personal problem and have not been online for the past 3-4 weeks :-( Like I wrote in a reply to another person, I have absolutely no personal or professional affiliation with Ms.Daiane Sodre. When I decided to create a WP article about her, I browsed 100's of images to see if I could find a royalty free image to use. Since I didn't find any, I ended up writing to the photographer asking if I could use his image for the article. He responded that the image is from 2012, so since it's an older image he would have no problem with me using it for the article and he gave his authorization. If the image is violating any WP rules, I'll be happy to remove it. Just FYI, I'm also editing the text for it to be more neutral as well I have been researching more about Ms.Daiane Sodre and will add more information to the article as well as source references and links. Again, thank you for your patience and please let me know how to proceed from here. DaiPedia2018 (talk) 19:10, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I'm trying to get a photo (personal shot) of the biography I submitted, and it was flagged up front- and not allowed to be even reviewed. I own the photo- and have more to help lend credence and help with the article. The owner was my Dad; he's deceased, and I have been providing personal photos of his music days to many authors and publications, and I was accredited "courtesy of Martin Willis", in every one. I understand the copyright/trademark requirements, but these are personal photos (?!?)- yikes...please help if and when you can; the most important part is to get the article posted so it also helps out Bill Black's bio, and a few others.

We will make changes due to it being declined. But there is one section where we talk about Yuri's parents with no reference. The reason there is no reference is because it was written from a personal source. Will this be a problem?


Riseupstrategies (talk) 20:42, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Riseupstrategies. Please clarify what you mean by "we". The policy on Wikipedia is "one user—one account". Usernames should not be shared by multiple individuals. If you are close enough to the subject to know things about his family that are not public, you have a conflict of interest, and really shouldn't be writing about him. If you write about him nonetheless, then you should declare the nature of your connection. In any case, Wikipedia articles may contain only information that is verifiable in reliable, published sources, not material from the personal experience of editors. --Worldbruce (talk) 02:04, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Request on 22:30:01, 15 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Gracelandet[edit]

I created this draft for which I've been updating and expect to update with additional information over the next couple weeks. I made it a draft to allow others to make contributions if possible. Someone created another page for which I just got an email saying it was being considered for deletion (not this article but the other one Courtney_Hadwin). So I guess I just want to make sure that first, this draft is in fact searchable by others to make contributions and therefore would avoid duplicate drafts for this subject. So my primary concern is someone trying to create another article from scratch for "Courtney Hadwin" rather than updating this draft! Please let me know if I should have taken different steps. Thank You very much!

Gracelandet (talk) 22:30, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

@Gracelandet: I recommend you await the outcome of the discussion on whether the existing article should be deleted. If the outcome is that it should be kept, you should abandon your draft and improve the existing article in mainspace instead. If the outcome is that it should be deleted, then it is because the Wikipedia editor community considers that she is not a suitable subject for a Wikipedia article and so submitting your draft is unlikely to see it accepted.

I am wondering why my article was rejected, this was a famed presenter of Sky News Australia, and his work colleagues have their own articles, referring to James Bracey.

Thank You.

Hi Penguinmeadow. The draft was declined because, with a single source that is independent and reliable, it fails to show that the subject meets WP:BIO. It was subsequently rejected because the second reviewer felt that no amount of editing could overcome the problem. I recommend that you set the topic aside for a while. Creating new articles is time consuming, frustrating, and overrated. There are millions of easier and better ways of improving the encyclopedia.

Hello there!

I'm writing because I have been struggling in the process of writing my draft for Gerovital Cosmetics.

Let me start off by saying: I am being paid to write this article on Wikipedia and have disclosed it repeatedly during discussions with moderators, as well as on my talk page.

Now, the issue I'm facing is repeated submission denials, the last one being motivated as, to paraphrase, "this article reads like a paid article and tries promoting what is, essentially, a quack product". Now, I have repeatedly rephrased the draft as to eliminate anything that could be interpreted as subjective towards the brand itself. In the last draft I submitted, there was nothing showing bias as far as I can tell, except, perhaps, a "prizes and awards" section. I would really appreciate any tips or indications I could get that can help me get this article to a publishable version.

Thank you in advance! RazPalea (talk)

RazPalea (talk) 12:23, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

@RazPalea: The deletion discussion makes the reasons for the deletion of the draft clear. There's already an article about Gerovital, which you can help improve. Articles have to be written about notable subjects (see WP:NCORP), provide reliable sources (see WP:V and be written from a neutral point of view, per WP:NPOV. Promotion is against Wikipedia's principles; if an article serves only to promote a subject then it doesn't belong here. Curb Safe Charmer (talk) 14:46, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Hello all,

If possible, I'd like some further feedback on the notability of this article's subject. Having read Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies), it looks to me as though the cited MailOnline, The IET, TechCrunch, Metro, and Business Insider articles meet the significant/independent/reliable/secondary criteria. Any further guidance on establishing notability would be greatly appreciated.

With thanks,

Robwward (talk) 16:53, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

@Robwward: - Hi there. Post you commenting here, your draft was reviewed and rejected. The reviewer declined it as overly advertorial. You can ask the reviewer SamHolt6 if that was his sole decline grounds or if he also felt it failed to satisfy corporate notability
A brief look at the sources does give some issues. Firstly, MailOnline is not particularly trusted as a source - a recent community discussion voted to sustain the general refusal of it as a reliable source. A problem across the other sources is that most of it is the writer saying "FiveAI said this, FiveAI's staff member said this etc". This repackaged content is functionally disregarded for considering notability, so the source only counts if there is sufficient other content within the article. I'm not confident enough to make a specific decision on them without extra analysis.
Worth fixing the known problem while hunting for any other sources that may appear in the interim. Nosebagbear (talk) 19:53, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Our original draft was rejected by reviewer StraussInTheHouse because it was deemed to be "contrary to the purpose of Wikipedia". In short, we were told that it seemed too personal in context and also it seemed to be an original research. It was suggested that we go through and adjust the phrasing to remove any weasel words are suggestive wording. I have gone through and made these adjustments and am hoping that this is more in line with what the reviewer was looking for. Thanks! Samasaad (talk) 18:49, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

03:05:02, 17 January 2019 review of submission by HannaWelch[edit]

In regards to my article about Giveaway Club, which was rejected. I would really appreciate some advice, so I don’t start working on articles that may get rejected in the future. What number of sources is considered sufficient to show that the subject is notable enough? I’ve looked at Giveaway Club’s competitors, such as BitsDuJour, and didn’t see that many external sources cited. In fact, with this example, most external links lead to BitsDuJour’s blog or their own press releases. Before starting this article, I looked at other similar web services that have articles about them on Wikipedia (such as here - and thought that Giveaway Club’s notability was similar to those, so it was worth writing about. I would appreciate some guidance on notability criteria and how this particular article could be improved to be included on Wikipedia. I’ve already read through Wikipedia’s guidelines on notability and thought that this subject meets those. It’s a web service (a software giveaway platform), so I go by the Wikipedia:Notability_(web) guidelines, which says that to be notable a website has to meet ONE of the two criteria:

  • The content itself has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent of the site itself.
  • The website or content has won a well-known and independent award from either a publication or organization.

My article about Giveaway Club cites six independent sources, at least 3 of which are reputable software review sites that place Giveaway Club among other notable websites (which have their own articles on Wikipedia). I believe six, or even three (if you only include those 3 better known sites), can count as multiple.

If you still find that Giveaway Club doesn’t deserve to have its own article on Wikipedia, can information about it still be included in some other article? The most relevant ones I see would be (the site that is very similar to Giveaway Club) or . Should I do that?

Thanks in advance for your help.

HannaWelch (talk) 03:05, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi HannaWelch. Novice editors are commonly advised to cite at least three independent, reliable, secondary sources that contain significant coverage of the topic.
Wikipedia is forever a work in progress. It contains high quality articles and poor quality articles. The existence of articles that do not meet Wikipedia's policies and guidelines does not mean they are welcome. It may simply mean that no one has gotten around to deleting them yet. They are not a good excuse to create more such articles. The essay WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS may help you understand why. If you wish to learn from example articles, be sure to use only Wikipedia's best.
The draft is lacking in both the reliable source and significant coverage departments. Ghacks appears to be the only independent reliable source, and it does not contain signficant coverage.
You may be underestimating how hard it is to meet WP:NWEB. In the past six months, excluding web series and news sites, only 5 articles on websites have been accepted via Articles for creation, and one of those is being considered for deletion. If you want to avoid starting drafts that are likely to be rejected, then avoid writing about extant companies, websites, and products.
I would not include information about Giveaway Club in any other article. The only plausible place would be Auslogics, but it's already tagged for notability, which is often the first step on the road to deletion. --Worldbruce (talk) 06:06, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
