Gerald Vandezande[edit]

On April 18, you recommended finding more references because most of my sources came from Vandezande. The difficulty I face, is Vandezande published his correspondence with Paul Martin, so when I reference those letters I am referencing Vandezande's book. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to improve this. Szellis (talk) 16:03, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure you can. You need to read WP:NOTE about notability for a person and see if there is any aspect of it that he meets. And you have to be able to provide some specific references, not related to him or his organizations to provide the proof. The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 13:53, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Can you please explain what specific references are (not related to him or his organization)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dancer88onpointe (talkcontribs) 15:33, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

The Bloomberg reference is not substantial, it is basically a listing and basic info that is from the company. The Aspen entry is another listing and probably his own press release. Are there magazine and newspaper articles about him? Frankly, after looking at about 5 pages of sources from a Google search, everything seems to be a press release or statement from one of his own companies or affiliations. The closest to a good reference is being awarded the Aspen Institute listing. The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 18:22, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. Can you please check again? I've made significant improvements to the page.

Help with iihm article.[edit]

Dear Aggie80,

The article that I have written is true and correct. The 10 references are all from leading newspaper articles which are independent 3rd party references.

Please let me know what more reference do I need to give because I have lots of news paper cuttings. I have given 10 references which can be viewed online.

Thanks, --Suryadityabose (talk) 04:17, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

There are numerous issues with the article. The use of advertising wording is the first issue. "Trusted" "discerning" "Globally recognized" are puff words that are not backed up with any sort of referencing. References need to be provided to support the claims inline, not stacked up at the end. See WP:REFB for both proper formatting and basic requirements. I should also point out the the largest section, History, is copied almost word for word from the school's web site and should be removed immediately or the article will be deleted for copyright violation. (I'll do that to avoid it getting totally blanked.) The grammar and punctuation through out need a great deal of work. I believe the articles support notability, particularly those from overseas.

Ironman Germany[edit]

Hello

I recently submitted an article to be reviewed on the Ironman Germany page. I am aware that there already exists an Ironman Germany page but it is a stub and I was simply expanding on it. If there is another process for which I should submit it again please let me know.

Hi Aggie80. I just noticed the article you created on May Singhi Breen. I had placed this on my "to-do" list a couple years back. You can see how fast I work. Anyway, I'm glad I didn't, you've done a really nice job on this one. I am very appreciative! 78.26 (I'm no IP, talk to me!) 05:57, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Regarding rejection of the FMRI, Gurgaon page[edit]

Hi Aggie,

The page that was submitted for the review is a corporate page for the organization - Fortis Memorial Research Institute. The message that we received was - "Your recent article submission to Articles for Creation has been reviewed! The submission has not been accepted because it included copyrighted information, which is not permitted on Wikipedia. You are welcome to write an article on the subject, but please do not use copyrighted work."

The information that has been used in the article has been taken from the website, shared by the marketing department of the hospital. Can you please point out the areas where you think that we have used copyrighted material so that we can either modify the article or re-write the pointed areas. Would be of much help if you can reply asap.

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by FMRI Gurgaon (talkcontribs) 07:32, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

That is the point, it is from the web site, which is clearly copyrighted. The material has not been released as required to be used on Wikipedia. Please see the requirements at WP:CV for what needs to be done to release the rights. The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 11:14, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

But we have the copyright of the material that has been taken from the website, so it shouldn't be a problem if we take it from the website for the Wiki page. Please let us know how to proceed from here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FMRI Gurgaon (talkcontribs) 05:14, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Review Simon Grabowski[edit]

Hi Aggie80 : ) Thanks so much for taking the time to review my article on Simon Grabowski. I have made some of the recommended edits and resubmitted the article for review. However, as I am still new to Wiki I am not fully sure I met the requirements. Would you mind taking a look? Also, it is my intention once Mr. Grabowski's page is published to also write one for his company, GetResponse.com. If there are any suggestions you can offer toward this end I would be most grateful.

Owls Hall Environmental[edit]

Hello,

I am a new user to creating pages on Wikipedia, could you tell me why the page was unapproved and how I could resolve it please? It would be of great help! Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Naz.Mak325 (talkcontribs) 08:31, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

If you read the note on the page, there is a lack of independent references. Wikipedia links and the subject's own web site are not sufficient to indicate any notability. See WP:NCORP for notability requirements and WP:REFB for referencing formats (which you appear to have fairly well). The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 11:22, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Olympic Animal Sanctuary submissions[edit]

Hello, Aggie80.

I am new at this, and submitted an article, which you rejected, saying it was blank. I don't really understand that, but ok. I resubmitted, after putting a title on it, and fixing the references, all of which are public record, or publicly reported, via Google or other places.

I may have resubmitted it twice, it is SO confusing!

Can you just check the resubmission if it goes straight to you, and see if it looks like another rejection is in the future? I want to get this up asap, due to many people wanting it.

Thank you,

idissues (kristikho@hotmail.com) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Idissues (talkcontribs) 20:31, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Made some changes regarding the referencing format, but there are no names associated with the links yet. The topic is going to have to be very well referenced, as there a many statements that could be considered libelous in nature. The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 20:43, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

I understand that there are some things that are dreadful in the post, but that's the purpose of getting it out there. People sent their animals there, and trying to follow up, with the sanctuary being defunct, they need to know where they are, and the article's references show what happened, why and where they are. The article is matter of fact, true, and everything stated is easily discernible from the linked references. I am not sure what you mean by names associated with the links. They are either a public website, television news reports, Seattle DogSpot blogs, or actual police and other public records. What do I need to do to edit it and get it published? I really don't know what you mean by names associated with the links.

Thanks so much....in confusion, idissues (Kristi) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Idissues (talkcontribs) 21:40, 12 May 2014 (UTC) Hello again. I think the article is ok now. It was seriously edited by someone who was given my password. I went in and edited it again, and removed some duplicate references, and tried to make sure the citing was all done properly. I showed no errors, but am still not sure that the citing is correct, but I did eliminate any errors showing. However, the person RSMITH with some numbers after the name put this in draft, and I can't figure out how to move it to submission. Please help me.

Ritani[edit]

from lcaglio

Thank you for your comments last month on this article submission for Ritani. I have cleaned up the references, added more content and citations to prove notability, and re-submitted the article for review. I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know whether or not the article meets guidelines now. If not, could you give me some ideas for what I can do to further improve the article?

Article declined[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:AM10001/sandbox Our organisation submitted the above article for wikipedia and it was declined.

Is it suitable for wikipedia if we change terminology in the article (for example the word definition) Our preference is to have the information regarding Practice Manager in wikipedia, what do you require for us to re submit the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AM10001 (talkcontribs) 06:14, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

improving Keith Dowman submission[edit]

I have added four footnotes to the Keith Dowman article that was not accepted for submission because it didn't show/prove the subject's 'notability'. The author, Keith Dowman, is cited by Wikipedia itself in over a hundred articles and has been repeatedly published by major publishing houses such as Penguin Books, Harper-Collins, Wisdom Publications, Snow Lion Publications (two of the biggest Buddhist Publishing Houses in the English Language.) etc. i would think those facts would in-and-of-themselves indicate notability. Why do they not? Mr. Dowman is often cited in works within his field, but I'm not sure how to use that to show 'notability' since these citations are not, by definition, peer reviews, but rather citations. ˜˜˜˜ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drugpa kunley (talkcontribs) 13:08, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

The biggest issue is that the referencing doesn't meet the requirements for a living person. As mentioned in my initial declination comments, please see WP:REFB for the basics on formatting references. And take a look at WP:NOTE for what requirements need to be shown to demonstrate notability. He may be notable, but without the requirements and references being shown to back it up, the article will not be accepted. The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 13:25, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Bill Haney[edit]

Aggie80,

Regarding the Bill Haney article.

I can't thank you enough for your sincere response. The response we received from Demiurge1000 was extremely condescending and mean.

First let me address the COI issue. The gentleman I am trying to help get on Wiki deserves to be there. He's almost 20 years my elder, so the term "friends" wouldn't describe our relationship. He is someone I respect and look up to. He has given me and my company a lot of free and unsolicited help because of his love of books. You see, my wife and I do book composition and layout, covers, etc. I exaggerated when I said he is our biggest client. I should have said that he is a great mentor. Also, he was one of Ernie Harwell's closest friends and I have a passion for baseball and the Tigers. I am so grateful for your response and offer to help us. Mr. Haney is currently gathering some 3rd party endorsements. When I receive them I will post them. You seem like a super cool guy--I went to your website--awesome pics of ukeleles! One of the coolest instruments ever. If I could arrange for you and Mr. Haney to have lunch, you would never regret or forget it. He is also a music lover and one of the most interesting people you could ever sit down over coffee with.

Formatting question: would I type <ref> then put the reference here and close with another <ref> ??? (I will also try to find and read what I can in the Wiki formatting section...)

Thank you, Ukelele Dude!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by GreenLips (talkcontribs) 13:41, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Close! < ref > is the way to start the reference (without spaces) and you end it with < /ref > it will create the numbers and then putting
  1. ^ Jain, Rahul. "Dr. Behnam Tai article review". 

at the bottom will create a nice listing of them all. They move and adjust automatically, more info at WP:REFB. The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 14:29, 20 May 2014 (UTC)


Dear Aggie80 (Ukelele Dude),

Below is my response to Ritchie333:

Ritchie333

Thanks for yours regarding GreenLips/Bill Haney.

Well, I screwed up pretty bad if I somehow gave the impression there was money being exchanged for us helping Mr. Haney getting posted on Wiki. Had I known what I know now, I would have been a lot more accurate in describing our relationship. Mr. Haney has been retired for many years. He has served as a mentor to me and my company sharing his vast knowledge, experience, and contacts with us for one reason only. He likes us and loves books. My company does composition, layout and design of books. Mr. Haney considers printed books to be on there way out and has steered my company toward "specialty books". . . Coffee table style, children's, cook books, etc. Books with a lot of art and design incorporated. I couldn't loose Mr. Haney as a client, as he is not a "paying" client, but I owe him my efforts to help him get posted on Wiki. I'm sorry that in my frustration, I left an inaccurate portrayal of what really is at stake for me. That is my honor.

Mr. Haney deserves to be on Wiki and he deserves my full effort.

Thank you so much for your kindness.

GreenLips (talk) 15:13, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

  • I've also replied on my talk but the tl;dr response is - I think he's notable, but I'll need to dig a bit further. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:48, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Ukelele Dude.

The subject, Bill Haney lives very near you. He would be thrilled to have the opportunity to chat with you over coffee. This man is one of the most interesting people you will ever talk to. Beloved by many Michigan VIPs, from politicians to sports heroes and all those in the book, golf, or music industry.

I know I can't post my phone number or email on this form so I'm not sure how I would go about connecting you two. BTW, there is someone in the Wiki community that goes by the handle Demurge1000 that gets his kicks out of making fun out of me--rather than trying to help me. Thank you for not being anything like that. I look forward to your help. Mr. Haney is currently gathering 3rd party endorsements by scanning his back covers and forewords from some of his many books. Most of the people who wrote reviews or endorsements on his books can be found on Wiki.

Bill Haney

Hi Ukelele Dude,

I have been reading, and referencing, and studying Wiki. I have the Bill Haney all formatted nicely. I have successfully uploaded 5 newspaper articles and have only them to insert or embed or link -- do you know if there is a way to place them side by side --they are very vertical in format? I can't find the my uploads now. I can't remember where I went to access (and then place) them. I want the articles to appear with the brief description/caption I gave them. Once I find and place them—what do I do (where do I go) to submit the Bill Haney article?

When I was in the upload area, I saw all five scans in a grid that said they were in there......now how do I access then?

GreenLips (talk) 13:29, 3 June 2014 (UTC)


Ukelele Dude,

You have been the only person who has been kind enough to help us. Can you please get in touch with us. Thank you in advance. This is regarding the disappearance -- or unfindability of several scans in the wiki upload wizard. It took me several hours to upload (successfully) and now they have been deleted with a message that reads: deleted: out of scope. I don't understand. The uploader accepted them. They are newspaper articles--no copyright permissions needed. Can you assist us please?

Type of "reliable sources" used in an article[edit]

For an article about biography of a person going back to 1930-1970's, what is permissible as reliable reference source? It is difficult to support the article with online links as they did not exist in that era. For instance, in one case I wanted to find online name of French Légion d'honneur recipients. One has to write a letter to the said government agency and they will probably send a letter confirming the name(s). But then how do you expect the author of the article to quote that private communication in the article? One solution would be to send the offline communications to the reviewer. If you have other suggestions, please share with me. Thank you very much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arwiki2020 (talkcontribs) 23:24, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

That raises all sorts of issues. First is violation of WP:COI as you are being paid to do this sort of thing for him. Which means that contributions are not neutral and unbiased. Second is that Wikipedia is not an advertising or promotional site. And the real problem here is that there was no content provided.

Durlav0115 (talk) 11:04, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

I already changed something and add some references like as books, news, and articles. I also add photo. Please check it.

Dear Wikipedia Friends: Thanks for your offers of help and the directions to the Tavern page or whatever the name of it is where people help one another. I went there, but I could not figure out how to type in a question.

I do appreciate your support. It is a problem for me because I often feel that Wikipedia is too complex for many people, so this "simpler" Wikipedia may be a good answer. I just wish that the entire thing had not fallen into such a tangle that only a few people seem to really feel at home using it.'There are things one simply would like to convey to others, without having to adhere to a large number of rules and regulations. Yet, of course, anything having to do with good English (or any languge) has to have rules-- there's nothing I hate more than badly written English with neologisms that sound like they were brewed in the depths of hell.

Occasionally, though, one would simply like to tell about a facet of a life or an encyclopedic subject that has already been written about, and it is just too much to figure out all the ups and downs of Wikipedia. I suggest that some of you might consider creating a location in which we, who are not able to get involved in Wikipedia's minute regulations or interested enough in them to learn them all so that we can write an article, could just leave the information which we would like to see become an article. You don't have to become that involved with our topic or us... just enough to write up something about the subject on which we have information we'd like to offer.

I, for instance, would like to convey, as part of my father, Irving Fiske's, life, perhaps (he has a Wikipedia entry) information on his unique younger brother, Milton, who composed music like that of Mozart but could not carry on a conversation with a member of the opposite six without offending he within about an hour. In spite of this he married twice, under the guidance of his brother, and had three children. He committed suicide in 1987 because he thought it was possible he might have cancer (never one to go to the trouble of actually finding out the facts).

I enjoy Wikipedia and I understand you no doubt wish it to be as clear and truthful as possible. For some, this might be best achieved by offering the facts and allowing someone else to write the article.

Many thanks, Ladybelle Fiske (talk) 00:08, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Aggie80. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).
