there is no copy righted info in my article[edit]

There is no article available on the subject and It what I have written and I am owner. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Displaydude (talkcontribs) 10:54, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

We can't be sure that you are the owner. Everything that is written is copyrighted automatically. You either need to rewrite in original words or release the content of the blog page under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL licenses. For a lengthier explanation see #Jean Hennessey submission above.

AfC re-reviews[edit]

Thanks for taking the time to do some AfC re-reviews. In order for them to "count", you need to put them in the bottom "Checked reviews" section (copy the line and then add the checked template at the end of the copy) or else they were simply get overwritten by the script that generates the pages. I fixed LukeSurl for you, but you'll want to fix the rest of your reviews. --ThaddeusB (talk) 22:00, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

@ThaddeusB: thank you for alerting me to this. I've gone through and fixed the others. Has the script changed recently, though? Last time I did a rereview I put it in the top section and the script moved it. BethNaught (talk) 08:18, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
I was unaware it would move things. When I last heard (a couple weeks ago, but your previous edit) it would just blank things. --ThaddeusB (talk) 13:58, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
So, it turns out I gave you totally wrong advice. Not only does the script move them to the right spot, it does so even if you already did (making them all have 2 copies). I cleaned up the mess by undoing your and my edits to copy the reviews to the correct spot. --ThaddeusB (talk) 19:41, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. Thank you both for your good intentions and for sorting it out after. BethNaught (talk) 20:58, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

"Trade" Definition Correction[edit]

The opening paragraph for the definition of Trade incorrectly states that the exchanged goods or service comes "from the buyer". Outside of an equal exchange of goods or services (barter) where there is no clear difference between a buyer and a seller, the goods or service comes "from the seller" of those goods or services. We are assuming the buyer exchanges a financial instrument (money) for those goods or services.

Please change it to either read "from the seller" or that "the buyer initiates the voluntary exchange."

You are perfectly free to change it yourself should you wish. But this time, explain your reasoning either in an edit summary or on the talk page. I'm afraid I'm not brilliant at economics so I don't want to do this myself. BethNaught (talk) 21:47, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

19:52:52, 30 June 2014 review of submission by Amberrae08[edit]


I am wondering why you believe it reads like an advertisement? I have references and unfortunately we aren't a big company and aren't published in notable publications - however, when you say it reads like an advertisement I'm beside myself. Duluth Pack reads like their website, how isn't this advertising with a list of their products?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duluth_pack

Please let me know what I can do to improve this page to be allowed approval. Thanks!


AmberO 19:52, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

You say that "we aren't published in notable publications" - that means it is quite likely your company does not yet meet the notability guideline for companies and organisations. If you are able to find them, you need to add independent, reliable sources discussing your company in reasonable depth - 1 or 2 paragraphs in each source is a good rule of thumb. This is needed to show notability and is an absolute prerequisite to the draft being approved.
As for the advertising issue, I thought it read like an advert because there are lots of awards listed but very little prose - thereby just promoting how great the company is. Writing a description of the company, and ideally reformatting the awards into prose, would make it read more like an encyclopaedia article, as long as you write with a neutral point of view. Whether Duluth pack is promotional or not is not relevant; there is lots of material on Wikipedia which is not shiny and amazing, but rough around the edges, and that other stuff exists is not a useful thing to discuss.
So, in summary, rewrite in prose, be objective, and most of all add references to reliable independent sources. If you need further help, feel welcome to ask at the Wikipedia:Teahouse or the Articles for creation help desk. Thank you and good luck. BethNaught (talk) 21:47, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

List of cider brand[edit]

Why you have deleted my contributions to List of cider brands? It is very rude. I have added names and URLs just like others. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cider Croatia (talkcontribs) 18:01, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

It would seem that I gave insufficient time to reviewing your edits and agreed too readily with others who called your edits spam. I apologise for that and will not stand in your way. However, given your name is Cider Croatia, and you have only edited about cider from Croatia, this will lead many to believe you have a conflict of interest. If you do then you need to declare it.

I could write an essay about the essay but I'm sure you understand the issues so I won't rail. It wasn't so much your comment I got riled at anyway. Still, thank you for the apology, and I guess the barnstar. BethNaught (talk) 17:13, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

I wouldn't say I do amazing work – I just made one comment about sexism and am not aware of having done so previously on-wiki. Thank you for the apology. I'm tempted to MfD the essay, though. BethNaught (talk) 17:13, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
I meant you do amazing work in general :), To be honest I think it's just a bit of humour and shouldn't be taken seriously but at the end of the day it's entirely up to you :) ,Regards , –Davey2010(talk) 17:37, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

DeMoulas Market Basket[edit]

I was not vandalizing the Demoulas Market Basket page. I work for the company and I was updating the page to align with recent events that have transpired recently. Nothing I wrote was vulgar or disruptive. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.164.234.230 (talk) 18:40, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

You appear to be changing the link in the infobox from the official company website to a campaign/pressure group. That is factually incorrect and vandalism. BethNaught (talk) 18:44, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Draft:Jeff Mitchum[edit]

Hi BethNaught,

I just saw your message as to why my requested Jeff Mitchum page was not accepted. I work directly with Jeff and wrote his bio, which he has included on his website. He asked me to list it on Wiki as well, so I do have permission to use this verbiage. We don't want to list anything on his website as the Wiki policy suggests. So, can you help me with what I need to do to get his page up? I would prefer not to draft a new bio but will if that will be easiest. Thank you for your guidance as I am no pro at Wiki editing!

Peace and light, Claudinni Claudinni (talk) 22:20, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Claudinni.
Firstly, I'm afraid you will have to write a new biography. There are two reasons for this:
  1. The text you already wrote is copyrighted and therefore incompatible with Wikipedia. To use it you would have to release it under a free license, but this still wouldn't work because
  2. It is promotional. Wikipedia articles need to be written with a neutral point of view which does not promote the subject but only report what reliable sources have said about it.
To get on with writing, you first need to make sure he meets the notability criteria for people, either the general criteria or the specific criteria for creative professionals. A google search shows this may be borderline but I am not familiar with him so I can't judge that on a quick look. Then gather reliable sources to prove all the information you write about him and cite them inline. Further help can be found at Wikipedia:Your first article.
I ought to say that the conflict of interest policy strongly discourages editing subjects to which you are closely connected. (However, Articles for Creation is a good way to do so, because the article is checked before launch, so don't worry about it.) However, if you are paid to edit, you must disclose this.
Feel free to ask further questions to me or at the Wikipedia:Teahouse. Thank you, BethNaught (talk) 08:34, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
