Jaspreet007 (talk) 07:01, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Can you please help in pruning this profile so that it satisfies the Wikipedia submission rules? I assure you that gourish singla is a man of eminence.

Hi Jaspreet007. If everything that is unacceptable were pruned, there would be nothing left. The topic is not notable, so no amount of editing will make it acceptable. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:06, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

08:26:59, 10 June 2019 review of submission by MoudgilAman[edit]

Need advise on why the article could not pass wikipedia's requirements when its not advocating/ promoting any company but merely talking about an elevator company which is very visible in Delhi and over 10 cities in India. Below are some of the hyperlinks of newspapers & journals who have published on the company for your reference please:

Requesting tips on how i can publish basic information about this company? MoudgilAman (talk) 08:26, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi MoudgilAman. The sources you've offered up are a trade publication and four variations on a press release. None of those do anything to establish notability (suitability for a stand alone encyclopedia article). --Worldbruce (talk) 15:18, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

08:45:40, 10 June 2019 review of submission by Anki 84[edit]

I need more information on this matter. The academy is based in Dubai and I would like to make the academy information available on wikipedia. Anki 84 (talk) 08:45, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Anki 84. None of the cited sources contain significant coverage of the academy, other than perhaps Diario de Navarra, which I haven't evaluated because it is behind a paywall. If it contains in-depth coverage, the draft would need at least two additional independent, reliable, secondary sources that satisfy WP:CORPDEPTH. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:31, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

09:07:51, 10 June 2019 review of draft by Sagarshah28[edit]

Hi team, My article is under review since 9th April. How can I bring this under the notice of reviewers community? Sagar Shah 09:07, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Sagarshah28. The draft is not yet "under review". It has been in the pool to be reviewed since 19 March. More than 425 drafts have been waiting for review longer than this one. The current backlog is approaching 4 months. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:56, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

10:45:03, 10 June 2019 review of draft by Jeff Goodwin2[edit]

Jeff Goodwin2 (talk) 10:45, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

I wrote an article for a popular Seattle author who reps our queer community well, but you guy's keep rejecting it because you said it's her... but it's me. So, Why?

Hi Jeff Goodwin2. If you think it was declined becuase it's an autobiography, you are mistaken. It keeps getting declined because it's awful. It makes many of the mistakes commonly made with autobiographies, so whether it literally is one or not, I strongly recommend studying that guideline.
It's identical to User:Tiffany Desiree/sandbox, which raises all sorts of troubling questions about whether you are in compliance with Wikipedia's account policies, conflict of interst policies, and terms of use regarding paid editing. I've left more information about these issues on your talk page. Once you've dealt with them, you can return to the question of whether anything can be done to salvage the draft. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:46, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
(Personal attack removed) thanks for your bias feedback. It's not awful. Consider learning basic grammar with your run on sentences and 3rd grade diction. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jeff Goodwin2 (talkcontribs) 15:19, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Also, you said, "conflict of interst." It's spelled interest. Am I seriously receiving advice from you about something being "awful?" What a joke.

14:05:55, 10 June 2019 review of submission by Butterflygirl1996[edit]

Just wondering why the page is "contrary to the purpose of wikipedia". No explanation was given so I was wondering what can be done to improve the page. Butterflygirl1996 (talk) 14:05, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Butterflygirl1996. See the reviewer's comment below the big pink box on the draft. Wikipedia already has an article on the subject, Brooke Lynn Hytes, so any development should take place there, not in a draft space parallel. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:14, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

17:04:09, 10 June 2019 review of submission by ClevelandDante[edit]

Can someone please explain to me how we need to restructure the verbiage, or how we can successfully create a page for this Cleveland Chef?

ClevelandDante (talk) 17:04, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi ClevelandDante. Rejection of the draft is meant to be final, to convey that the subject is not notable (not suitable for inclusion in the encyclopedia), so no amount of editing will make the topic acceptable.
Please clarify what you mean by "we". The policy on Wikipedia is "one user—one account". Usernames should not be shared by multiple individuals.
Skimming the draft, I see that it cites The Washington Post and The New York Times. That would usually be a good sign, but neither article verifies the statements where cited, or mentions Boccuzzi. This suggests that you may not understand the point of citing sources. The WPO piece is an independent, reliable, secondary source containing significant coverage of Troy Dupuy. Try to find three similarly high quality sources about Boccuzzi. If you can't, then the reviewer was correct, and the topic is hopeless. --Worldbruce (talk) 17:50, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Request on 17:08:34, 10 June 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Sayeyabandeh2019[edit]

Hello, I am trying to create a Wiki page for someone who has asked me to set it up for them. The name of the page/person is "Saye Yabandeh" she is a reputable award-winning actress, global humanitarian and the Global Ambassador to the Global Citizens Foundation. I am trying to figure out the best way to have her biographical information and lists of awards/film/tv projects presented in a Wikipedia page.

I started by creating an account and submitting an article for creation. It was quickly denied saying that it was advertising materials or something of that sort, but the only information that was initially submitted was Saye Yabandeh's biography with listed resources.

If there is a different way that I need to go about having the page set up, please advise. Her requests have continued to be rejected and we can't seem to figure out how to get a page set up properly.

Sayeyabandeh2019 (talk) 17:08, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Sayeyabandeh2019. Draft:Saye Yabandeh was created by ZA Saye, submitted by an IP editor in February 2015, and declined for failing to show notability. It was resurrected by Rose2gonow1 in 2018, when it was declined for failing to show notability and later for reading like an advertisement. Most recently, your version was speedily deleted for being unambiguous promotion. Even the existence of a page about her, if she doesn't qualify for inclusion, could be seen as promotional.
The reviewers and deleting admins have been different each time. Consensus seems to be that she is not a suitable topic for an encyclopedia article at this time. Searching Google books returns nothing relevant, and Google news return no independent, reliable, secondary sources deeper than a passing mention, so I'm inclined to agree. The best thing to do is not to try to write an encyclopedia article about someone who has asked you to do so. If her achievements are genuinely notable, or become so in the future, a neutral volunteer will undoubtedly create an article about her. --Worldbruce (talk) 00:25, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

19:05:34, 10 June 2019 review of submission by Pumpkinhead11[edit]

Pumpkinhead11 (talk) 19:05, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

The article that I submitted for review was declined because it doesn't seem like the subject is worthy of an encyclopedia entry, but the reason I'm trying to publish it is because he's about to announce his candidacy for Governor of New Hampshire. As he hasn't technically announced officially yet, there is no coverage on this, but we wanted to have the start of the article up so that through the soft announcements people can still find info on him.

Thank you.

@Pumpkinshead11: - politicians have very strict notability requirements. High levels of coverage aren't/wouldn't be sufficient - to demonstrate political notability he'd have to actually win the election. He may warrant an article through his book, if it's received multiple reliable reviews. Take a look at WP:NAUTHOR for details. Nosebagbear (talk) 19:45, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
An additional key note, is that as a biography of a living person, the references need to be inline, not general - that is, they need to support specific details (the little blue numbers) rather than just being a list of URLs at the end. referencing for beginners explains how. Please remember that you'll need multiple, reliable, in-depth & (critically) independent) review sources for the book. Nosebagbear (talk) 19:48, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

19:50:07, 10 June 2019 review of submission by Gingersnap1996[edit]

I am requesting a re-review because I do not understand why the page is not notable enough for inclusion. If there is a reason why the page is not notable enough, please explain why. Thanks! If it's an issue with sources please say so! Gingersnap1996 (talk) 19:50, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

20:49:42, 10 June 2019 review of draft by Tuuzi[edit]

I noticed Dr. Jindal was listed on "Outstanding Americans by Choice" award page and should be on the history of Guyana page (maybe, debatable because he just setup the first kidney transplant program there), and Fulbright Scholar distinguished chair page. Can I edit the links on these pages, or do I have to wait for it to be published? Thank you in advance for any help. Tuuzi (talk) 20:49, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Tuuzi (talk) 20:49, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Tuuzi. Articles may not link to drafts. If and when the draft is published, then you may edit the links, but do not do so before. --Worldbruce (talk) 00:31, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Why did my draft for Emma Boettcher get denied? Seems like Jeopardy contestants with similar references were approved on the page!_contestants

AWRcore (talk) 00:11, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi AWRcore. The draft paints Boettcher as someone notable for only one event. If similar articles exist, and cannot be improved, they should be considered for deletion. The essay WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS may help you understand why. --Worldbruce (talk) 00:43, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

09:50:16, 11 June 2019 review of submission by[edit]

Sorry, but I have 3 valid references (talk) 09:50, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Dadamanda. The cited references are all from those organizing/coordinating/supporting the event. They are not independent of it; they have a vested interest in promoting it. Independent sources are required in order to demonstrate notability (suitability for inclusion in an encyclopedia), and the bulk of any article should come from independent sources. If you can add three independent, reliable, second sources that contain significant coverage of the event, you may resubmit the draft. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:31, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Request on 13:49:28, 11 June 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Bunnies959[edit]

Hi, I have created a draft article for Serato DJ and was not accepted as it appears to "be a test edit", is there any way that I can change and improve this.

Bunnies959 (talk) 13:49, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Bunnies959. User:Bunnies959/sandbox was declined as a test edit because it contains only a link. Draft:Serato DJ has not been declined, you have not submitted it for review. Add {{subst:submit}} to the top of it in order to ask for it to be considered for publication. When you save it, a large mustard yellow "Review waiting, please be patient" box will appear, probably at the bottom.

16:39:47, 11 June 2019 review of submission by Swordswfriends[edit]

I have revised the rejected page (Draft:Distillerie_Neisson) to address the objections of the reviewer and on the advice of other editors. First, the article was originally categorized as a product entry — this was an error, as it was written as a company entry. In addition, I have included additional significant coverage (with justification in Talk) and removed links to retailers (except for one, included because it's the only available reference for a particular fact; this is also addressed in Talk). On these grounds, I believe the article now meets Wikipedia standards.

Swordswfriends (talk) 16:39, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Andremartinsc (talk) 17:34, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Andremartinsc. Being assistant coach, scout, and performance analyst doesn't make him notable. If you can add a source that supports his having played in a competitive game between two teams from fully-professional leagues, that would demonstrate notability according to WP:NFOOTY. --Worldbruce (talk) 18:11, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Mithun Pookat (talk) 01:55, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Mithun Pookat. The reviewer's comment, below the big pink box on the draft, links to the relevant guideline, WP:NCOMPANY. Most businesses are not suitable topics for an encyclopedia article. Rejection is intended to be final, to convey that the subject is not notable, so no amount of editing will make the draft publishable. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:10, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Requesting re-review because there was a reference missing from the article.

Hi Jimbob2019. Novice editors are commonly advised to cite three independent, reliable, secondary sources that contain significant coverage of the topic. The draft still has zero. Rejection is intended to convey that not only is the draft in its current state unacceptable, but no amount of editing will make it acceptable - that the topic is hopeless.

08:02:59, 12 June 2019 review of draft by Mc olteanu[edit]

Hi, I own a Buti watch long time now. I have learned after extensive research that there is not a compiled set of information about what the watch company offered while in business. The company does not exist anymore, and they do not make any more watches. This is not an attempt to market the brand, I am trying to give a set of information as much as possible for the people that are trying to find out more about the former watch making company and what they were offering. If I need to write it some other way, let me know, this is the first time I am attempting to write an article :). I base all my info on articles from watch resellers, and other online found information from people that have worked in a watch store, like myself.

Help me out so I can put useful information out there.

Mc olteanu (talk) 08:02, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Mc olteanu. Creating a new article is one of the most difficult, time consuming, and frustrating tasks a novice editor can attempt. It requires a thorough understanding of what is and isn't a reliable source. Blogs, internet forums, and Facebook, for example, are generally not reliable sources. A better place to look for information would be books from reputable publishers. Original research is not allowed. Also, being true and useful does not mean something is a suitable topic for an encyclopedia (although those are good properties for an encyclopedia entry to have). Instead, Wikipedia uses notability to determine whether a topic should be included.
There are millions of easier ways to improve the encyclopedia. See Wikipedia:Community portal for ways to help. If you are interested particularly in watches, you may wish to try to rejuvenate Wikipedia:WikiProject Watches. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:48, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

hi. I am trying to create an article about the youngest member of thirakwwa lineage in hindustani classical music. i do not have any conflict of interest since its my dedication to their music form that urges me to create its presence worldwide. however im uncertain as to why it has not been approved yet. i understand that the AFC may take more than 8 weeks. since i have just recently started contributing to wiki im considering this article as my learning project as well. to my knowledge i have been very particular about the guidelines. also have taken an email from the respective musician for using the images and other copyright content. if possible i need some first hand education on what happens to the draft now and how may i get it live on wiki.

My wiki article got rejected with the reason 'do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject'.

But the 4 references I have listed are all independent sources and carry necessary information about the subject.

The first reference is from an article in Tugboat which is a journal published by TeX users group (

The second is another article that has been published in

The third reference is a detailed interview of the subject that has been featured in January 2008 issue of TUG India by the TeX users group. (TeX users group is a community that is mentioned in

The fourth is again an article from that has been retrieved from the internet archive.

Based on these references, the article that has been submitted is true to the facts.

So, I need some clarification on whether it is the way the references has been included that has resulted in the rejection.

Considering the case, I request you to kindly look into the matter and provide your recommendations so that I can get my article published at the earliest.

as the revision of this article takes much longer than expected, I would like to ask if it is possible to do changes to this article while it is being reviewed? I dont want to do changes and then need to wait longer. Or is it easier to do improvements after the article is approved?

Thank you for your help!

Sophiaforgiz (talk) 12:28, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Sophiaforgiz. Yes, you may continue to improve the draft while you wait for it to be reviewed. It doesn't cite any arms length sources, only the initiative and one of its partners. Wikipedia isn't much interested in what the initiative and its partners BMZ, GIZ, etc. say about the initiative. The bulk of any draft should be based on independent sources (think Süddeutsche Zeitung, academics writing in books and journals, and so on). It will not be accepted unless that is corrected. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:19, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Its developments has lasted over 17 years with federal funding (thus our works are in public domain). Would this be counted as "reliable" source? __Zhiliang — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zhilianghu60 (talkcontribs) 15:30, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

How many references do i need to prove that a species exists and what are the best references for this?

AustinRedd007 (talk) 16:03, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi AustinRedd007. Novice editors are commonly advised to cite at least three independent, reliable, secondary sources containing significant coverage of the topic. Scholarly sources (books from academic publishers, and peer reviewed journals) would be best, see WP:SOURCETYPES. Good examples of these types of sources can be found in the references for Cowpea and Tephrosia apollinea. --Worldbruce (talk) 17:55, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

why is my article getting rejected Muneeralsenaidi (talk) 14:52, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Muneeralsenaidi. User:Muneeralsenaidi/sandbox has been rejected because it is full of promotional marketing-speak, and the only source it cites is the company itself. Wikipedia may not be used to advertise or promote anything. Articles should be written from a neutral point of view and be based mainly on independent sources.
Creating a new article is one of the most difficult, time consuming, and frustrating tasks a novice editor can attempt. I strongly suggest that you build some experience with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines by making small improvements to existing articles for a while, before again attempting to write an article from scratch. See Wikipedia:Community portal or Wikipedia:WikiProject Architecture if you aren't sure where to start. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:23, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

LLcentury (talk) 19:36, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi LLcentury. Spaces strayed into the URLs of those four references, which made them display and behave oddly. I've fixed those four, but there may be others. Did you copy this from es:Política externa del gobierno de Shinzō Abe? You are welcome to do so, but must give attribution to the original authors. See WP:TFOLWP for how. --Worldbruce (talk) 22:59, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Worldbruce Thank you so much, but believe me please in good faith, I lack of technical English and dont understand how to attribute the authorship to User:Jeddah. I already put something on the draft talk page. --LLcentury (talk) 00:21, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: LLcentury is not fluent in English, and interpreted your request as a request to attribute the article creator (User:Jeddah). There is an attribution on the talk page to the original article. Jeddah created the original article, but other people have edited/improved the article; it would be a bit tedious to attribute each and every person. Perhaps LLcentury didn't understand the request; I'm just conveying what they interpreted.
After this is cleared up, we should get back to the original question.  I dream of horses (My talk page) (My edits) @ 00:54, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi BDubbs21 Wikipedia may not be used to publicize or promote anything. Its articles cover only topics that have gained significant attention by the world at large and over a period of time. In other words, not a band formed in the last few years, that is releasing their first album this year. See WP:BAND for ways to demonstrate that a band is notable (suitable for inclusion in the encyclopedia).

Hey, checking in on a question I submitted a while ago. Here's the original text:

I wrote a first draft of this article, and it got rejected for not having enough notable sources/linking to the NYVGCC's website as a source. Since then, I've reworked the page to have higher-quality sources. I've also deleted any facts that couldn't be independently verified in a source other than the nonprofit's website.

My question now is: should I do anything else before I resubmit? Am I making other big mistakes that I don't know about?

Thanks so much for any help you can give!

Request on 14:24:53, 15 June 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Jameschamoun[edit]

The reason why my article was denied was because it doesn't meet notability criteria. I kept the article short and brief so that other content can be added later on, i have mentioned at least 7 or 8 very reliable sources which include Top magazine names as well as tv channels. I do not understand why it would not meet the notability criteria.

Jameschamoun (talk) 14:24, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Jameschamoun. "Mentioning" magazine names and TV channels does nothing to establish notability. The author, title, date, url, and page number (or whatever bibliographic information is applicable to the source) must be cited, see Help:Referencing for beginners for how to do so. Primary source interviews in which he talks about himself without independent analysis by the interviewer do nothing to demonstrate notability. Be aware that in Wikipedia's current business-skeptical climate, there is almost zero chance of a "young entrepreneur", "best known" for incorporating a company this year, being judged notable. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:51, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Blairshwach (talk) 15:05, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Blairshwach. Reread the reviewer's comment. Primary sources are the wrong kind of sources. You want secondary sources, sources like the Chicago Tribune or The Washington Post. Furthermore, only independent sources can establish notability, so not his firm's website and not press releases from his firm. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:30, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

If you're editing using the wiki-editor (you write in a box and there are some {{}}) then Ref Beginners "Using the same ref more than once" does a reasonable job at explaining
If you're using the Visual Editor (it looks more like word when you edit, with no {{}} anywhere), then Visual Editor - reusing refs is the place to go.
