Draft:Downhill (2014 film)[edit]

Draft:Downhill (2014 film) (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs)

Hi, I have added even more independent reviews. We have been reviewed / written about by The Times, The Independent, Radio Times, Empire magazine, ScreenDaily, etc. This must qualify the page?

LizzieJGoodman (talk) 14:31, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Before the references can qualify the page, it is essential that the references are able to be checked. In the article's current version, they don't really follow any citation style. I would recommend that you convert the article so that it uses Citation Style 1 (although others work fine, too). At that point, reviewers will be able to check notability. Another thing which you should check is the notability of the film. A previous reviewer linked to WP:NFILM. The article probably meets the criteria listed at WP:NFILM#Other evidence of notability; however, you should definitely verify that the sources prove this. Hope this helps!

Draft:Internet Sales Promotion Group[edit]

Sub: Review of "Draft:Internet_Sales_Promotion_Group"

I found this company deserves a page because of the following reasons. ISPG seems to have a bad PR because of which they couldn't appear in the news papers or any of the valid sources approved by Wiki. But that doesn't mean this company don't deserve a Wiki page, I have seen several other companies which are less relevant in the same domain having a wiki page. I would really appreciate if you could reconsider the decision and give this page an approval. If you feel that this page can be approved after a few changes are made, kindly let me know the same.

1. This company was awarded for innovation by Kerala Management Association and NASSCOM for its E-commerce software (Oorjit) and Enterprise Social Networking software (Ollco):

2. It is among the first 6 Indian companies to be shortlisted and awarded as the Google Premium SME Partner:

3. This company is a premium partner of Godaddy in India this was announced during WHD India event:

4. The company has more than 250 employees with overseas presence in London and Dubai.

5. Federal Bank, Johnson & Johnson and many other prestigious companies. comes under its clientele. (talk) 07:47, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I do feel that the submission can be accepted after a few changes are made to the referencing. Wikipedia's notability guideline for companies says that sources that provide significant coverage are required to prove the notability of the company. The sources you provide mention the company, but don't given it significant coverage. For a definition, I'm quoting the first bullet point in this section: "Significant coverage" addresses the topic directly and in detail, so that no original research is needed to extract the content. Significant coverage is more than a trivial mention but it need not be the main topic of the source material. The source written by V. Sajeev Kumar fits these criteria, but no other source does. The Dubaiinternetcity source is a directory listing, and source #8 is a self-published source. Hope this helps! APerson (talk!) 13:17, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I shall remove all references except the one by V. Sajeev Kumar and resubmit the article. Before doing that I noticed you have added a tag "AfC submissions by date/28 May 2014" could you please help me understand what that signify (I read about it in detail but couldn't understand much) Hope it wont be a barrier for me to edit the page. Please let me knowAnooppaul.m (talk) 15:33, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
The tag (also referred to as a category) serves only to inform reviewers and bots that the submission was submitted on 28 May 2014 and has no effect on anyone's ability to edit the page.
Before resubmitting, you may also want to add more sources that talk about the company in depth; for instance, if there were an article in a periodical (not a press release) about the company, you probably would want to add it. Ditto for any books that talk about the company in a significant way. I'll put a {{Find sources}} tag here, which links to a bunch of helpful resources:
Find sources: "Internet Sales Promotion Group" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images
Thank you for your contributions! APerson (talk!) 15:42, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks again, you are real help. Unfortunately I couldn't find any usable reference other than by V. Sajeev Kumar. So I made a few changes to the article and have resubmitted it for review. I shall keep this page updated as and when I receive more references. Thanks for all your help and guidance APerson. Anooppaul.m (talk) 16:13, 8 July 2014 (UTC)



An article I had submitted for review about "Sky Infotech" got declined. I only wanted to share my views about the company. Can I know why it was declined? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Som.tag (talkcontribs) 11:58, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Som.tag, per Wikipedia's company notability policy, [a]n organization is generally considered notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources. Therefore, the submission must have sources. Otherwise there's no way to prove that its subject is notable, and therefore it can't have an article on Wikipedia. All you have to do, as the box I put on your submission says, is [a]dd citations to secondary reliable sources that are entirely independent of the subject.. Hope this helps!

Translation of a Page[edit]


I made an entry (Giovanni Galli (clothing company)) which was declined. I was "expecting" this outcome for the reason it was declined, however I have an obstacle which I can't go through without help.

I wrote the article in portuguese and wanted to translate it into english and spanish. The english version was declined because it didn't have any references... because they are all in portuguese.

The idea was to combine the three pages after I have created them.

What can I do to stay with the articles in wikipedia?

Thanks in advance. --92MVG (talk) 14:14, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

10:17:58, 11 July 2014 review of submission by Sarah Woodward[edit]

Dear APerson, Can I request further clarification on your comments on how to rewrite the article submitted; in terms of how it reads like an advertisement, and the variation of sources that the article refers to? I am keen to understand how you would suggest a change in the way the article is worded in order for it to come from a more neutral point of view. Also, as all the facts in the article have been related to in the listed references from sources other than the topic's main website, are the references not up to the standards of reliability that Wikipedia requires? Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated, Kind regards Sarah Woodward (talk) 10:17, 11 July 2014 (UTC) Sarah Woodward (talk) 10:17, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
