WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

JasH23/sandbox - Stibo Systems[edit]

Hi! I am here about an article I've submitted to Articles for Creation. It has been declined, so I'm here to request for more info about improving it for publishing. What I've tried to do is to create an English article of the French article here: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stibo_Systems I've followed a similar structure and used same sources as in the French article, yet the English article has not been approved. Could you please let me know why that is and what should I do? JasH23 (talk) 13:01, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Sure! I went and looked at the French article, and although my French is not that good, it looked a bit like an advertisement too. Part of what I look for when checking a draft for tone is whether it sounds lifted from a press release or something by the company. Many of the largest company articles on Wikipedia can serve as good models for more "neutral" articles; for instance, Google's first sentence doesn't mention the "solutions" that it provides. Hope this helps, and if you have more questions, feel free to ask! APerson (talk!) 16:57, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
