Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Chris Twomey[edit]

Dear Dalisays,

Please give me more guidance for Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Chris Twomeyrefused because "Please cite your sources using footnotes. For instructions on how to do this, please see Referencing for beginners. Thank you."

I looked over the footnote section as you recommended, but it looks to me that the footnotes in this article follow the instructions. I would very much appreciate your help in figuring out specifically what is wrong with the footnotes. I would like to fix this article so that when I submit it again, it meets your criteria.

Thank you for your consideration, Norm HinseyNorm Hinsey (talk) 14:44, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello Norm,
To meet Wikipedia's standards, Chris Twomey must be a notable person (please reference Wikipedia standards's on notable people). To verify Twomey's notability there needs to be sufficient inline citations, and currently the article lacks sufficient inline citations to do so. The citations are too sparse to verify key material which support the argument that Twomey is indeed a notable person. Good news is I think this can easily be resolved, by going back through the article and adding inline citations throughout. You will notice now that the entire first half of the article has none and this is where the information that would have gone to prove notability is found. As such, this information must be supported by inline citations. To clean up the article--as it as been added---these citations should be added to ensure it is not deleted it in the future.

Re 'Center of pressure'[edit]

Per your comments at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Center of Pressure (Balance), please see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Organismal Biomechanics#Center of pressure - We can't have one article discussing two unrelated subjects: our existing article was about a specific concept within fluid mechanics, and the 'biological' CoP is another concept entirely. AndyTheGrump (talk) 18:32, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

I don't see the two topics as distinct; in fact, I would argue that the topics are indeed interrelated, and that both are not sufficiently unique to demand their own article. I would continue the discussion you have initiated at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Organismal Biomechanics#Center of pressure--it seems to be productive thus far--- and arrive at a consensus so the contributor for Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Center of Pressure (Balance) can find a happy home for the content.

Campo-Formio (band) page[edit]

Hi Dalisays,

I invite you to review all of the sources I have used once again and take a closer look. The sources I have used are not at all only about concerts the band has performed, my sources are varied and solid. Some are interviews of the band, others are reviews of the band's EP releases. Most of my information is actually extracted from the many interviews I have cited. So, please, I invite you to review my sources again and let me know if you do actually find something wrong with my resources.

Also, the band has most definitely met Wikipedia's standards of notability. I have references in my articles that span from different websites, magazines, and blogs that mention Campo-Formio's achievements which all appear in the "Accolades" section of my article. Please, I have followed the instructions adequately, so I invite you to check again and see if my article can finally be moved to article space on Wikipedia. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Menor, A. (talkcontribs) 14:00, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Menor A, I reviewed the article again. In my opinion, it still does not meet the Notability Requirements For Music. I went through the article and then went through each requirement, and I just don't think it satisfies any. To this end, the only music notability req it would meet--based on the info in the article-- is the coverage req by independent critical review sources. But again, the main problem is that the notability of the band is not supported by the sources provided as of now. There are only two or three sources which present critical coverage of the band through reviews---and there needs to be multiple such sources (The different reviews cited from Puerto Rico Indie just count as one basically, since they are all from the same publication). I feel like you just need to find more independent sources that have provided critical reviews of the band---there must be some out there. Dalisays (talk) 14:33, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
HI again, I understand the problem now and I apologize for my misunderstanding. I will address the issue promptly and resubmit the article for review once I have found more and different sources that attest to the band's notability. Thank you for the help. Menor, A. (talk) 20:16, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Paul-Louis Arslanian[edit]

I'm puzzled why you declined this one. The sources clearly document the notability of the subject. Sure it has room for improvement, but notability doesn't lack. The subject was chief of the BEA, (the French equivalent to the US NTSB). As such, he headed the investigation into Air France Flight 447 and many others. He's an Officer of the Légion d'honneur. For unelected public servants in democracies, that's about as notable as it gets. If you're going to decline such translations, the least you can do is make it clear what needs to be fixed. The translator put in significant effort in good faith. LeadSongDog come howl! 16:22, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

I don't think this one is a great puzzler. The subject may very well be notable, but the sources provided to this end are sparse as of now. All currently identified sources--except for one--just note the subject's position without providing additional coverage. In and of itself, this position isn't notable. The other one listed the chief as an investigator in the Air France Flight 447 incident. The Notability Guidelines are clear that involvement in one such incident in itself also does not merit notability all its own (his name can be included in the article for the incident). When considered as a whole, the subject's notability isn't supported solidly by the aggregate of these sources. Dalisays (talk) 16:48, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
If the issue was wp:ONEEVENT, you could have said as much. How are editors to solve unstated problems? This or this should be sufficient to see his involvement in grounding the Concorde. Here is another, relating to an Air New Zealand crash.LeadSongDog come howl! 19:06, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
The greater problem with the article generally, in my opinion, is sourcing, and the form notice indicates as much. However, there is also a general comment on the article regarding the problem with wp:ONEEVENT. Cheers, Dalisays (talk) 19:12, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
In any case, translated articles have to be created before they can be changed. Otherwise, the process of attribution via the article history would be broken. We shouldn't comingle translation with editing.LeadSongDog come howl! 19:36, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Attribution simply imputes that the original source of the translation be credited by tagging in the edit summary/talk page--assuming this is actually a derivative work and that the contributor didn't write the original as well. The chain of attribution is thus intact regardless of additional edits made before the article is created (additional edits don't change the edit summary). In fact, all attributed articles that are translated are subject to the basic acceptance requirements upon submittal and this process in some cases necessitates additional editing prior to creation. That is, just because a Wikipedia article exists in another language doesn't mean it will meet the reqs for inclusion in Wikipedia English. Dalisays (talk) 20:04, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Category Request: Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile[edit]

Hello Dalisays. Thank you for having accepted the category http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_Request:_Category:Alumni_of_the_École_nationale_de_l%27aviation_civile. Please, could you clean up the title of the category from Category Request: Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile to Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile. For the moment, it doesn't work. Thanks a lot. Kind Regards. 78.239.175.7 (talk) 08:34, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

I think I have moved it successfully to reflect your request. Please check to ensure it is working now, and please do let me know. Dalisays (talk) 09:19, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you but unfortunately, it doesn't work. The final name should be Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile , so without"Wikipedia:" (for the moment, the name is Wikipedia:Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile). You can look for an example to this category : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Alumni_of_the_École_Centrale_de_Lyon. 78.239.175.7 (talk) 09:26, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
The final name should be Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile instead of Wikipedia:Category:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile or Wikipedia:Alumni of the École nationale de l'aviation civile (the same as all the articles of the category http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Alumni_of_the_Grandes_écoles). Kind Regards. 78.239.175.7 (talk) 09:44, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Article for Don Groves[edit]

Hi, i am trying to upload Don Groves' profile, as I believe it merits a Wiki place. I have quoted 2 sources, and he can be found on Wiki linking him to several Variety movie reviews. Can you please tell me what I need to do to make Don's profile available to the rest of the Wiki community? — Preceding unsigned comment added by PW Moodie (talkcontribs) 13:20, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi PW Moodie! So, to establish the notability of the subject, there needs to be multiple quality (independent and secondary) sources that provide coverage. As of now, it is hard to establish notability given 1) the quality of sources and 2) the coverage they provide. One source is from the subject's network, so it is not independent, the other two sources which appear independent don't provide coverage of the subject, they simply provide mention. So, to improve the article--you need to add better sourcing keeping in mind these reqs and then you should resubmit. I hope that is helpful. Dalisays (talk) 13:35, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Article for ViziApps, Inc.[edit]

Hello Dalisays,

I've made some improvements to the ViziApps article, including a rewrite for WP:NPOV. I've also trimmed the sources to better conform to WP:RS and demonstrate a level of notability for the subject that meets the WP:GNG threshold. I'll be making some ongoing improvements in the future, such as adding categories etc., but in the meantime, I wonder if you might help me redirect MobiFlex App Studio to this new article, since the company has verifiably transitioned from MobFlex Inc. to ViziApps Inc. Thanks! Annieh129 (talk) 00:06, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

A redirect from MobiFlex App Studio to the new article can only be done once it is created. It would probably be better if MobiFlex App Studio was merged with the new content (that is, you should add your content to the article rather than create a new one). When you are done, then the article can be moved, to reflect its new name. Dalisays (talk) 00:13, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

BroadLight article pending approval[edit]

Hi!

Can you please suggest what texts should be removed from this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/BroadLight in order for it to be approved.

I'm kind of losing direction as to how to proceed from here.

Thank you,

Didiivancovsky (talk) 10:29, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Didiivancovsky! No worries! Keep in mind, to establish the notability of Broadlight, there needs to be multiple independent secondary sources that provide coverage. So you have to nail the trifecta (Multiple, Independent, Coverage). So, right now, there are two problems w/ the sources. 1) Most are not independent. One source is a Broadlight forum; one source is a publication of Broadlight's press release. and 2) The remaining source only provides minimal coverage. So--don't be discouraged! You just have to locate some sources that are in no way connected to Broadlight that talk in detail about the company (they should do more than just mention the Broadlight or list it as a company (e.g. directories, etc). Try to hunt down at least 5 sources to this end. I hope that helps. Dalisays (talk) 16:50, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

art sales index[edit]

Hello Dalisays Do you need email accounts of employees or customers to help the verification process? Best wishes Duncan Hislop duncan.hislop@talktalk.net — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dchislop (talkcontribs) 19:18, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Duncan Dchislop! In short -no! To establish the notability of the subject of your article, there must be multiple independent secondary sources that provide coverage. I call this the trifecta: MULTIPLE, INDEPENDENT, COVERAGE. Try to identify/include many sources that aren't related to the subject--or simply echo what it says about itself---and that provide critical review of it (not mere mention). I hope that is helpful in your endeavor. Once you have, be sure to liberally cite your article with inlines. Currently, the sources identified are not independent and don't provide coverage, and there is not adequate inline citation. Dalisays (talk) 19:28, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Antimalarial drug resistance.[edit]

Dear Dalisays

Thanks for looking at this draft for a new article.

I am confident that this article is needed but accept I have probably gone through the wrong process. Antimalarial resistance is a large and important subject in its own right, constituting a global threat to efforts to control malaria. In an analogous way there is an article on Antibiotic resistance as well as one on Antibacterials, and it is certainly not true that antibiotic resistance is significantly more important than antimalarial resistance.

Currently the section on antimalarial resistance is limited to three shortish segments within what is already a large article on antimalarials. In my view both would benefit from substantial revision, but I and presumably others are disinclined to do this if an article feels cramped and poorly structured (as is currently the case in my view). I also observed that the current resistance section has only one reference (for the statement that resistance is common).

What would be really helpful is to know what the best process is to separate this into two articles, with one obviously linked to the other. Relevant content from Antimalarials (of which there is relatively little) could potentially be transferred to the new article if there is an appropriate way to do this.

It would be great to get your advice on how to go about doing all this in the most efficient way.


Kind regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scientist2 (talkcontribs) 02:05, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Scientist2, So, I think you have two options. The first I would recommend, the second I would not, and I will explain why. 1) You can go to Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Pharmacology and or Talk:Antimalarial_medication to initiate a dialogue with your peers about whether it would be best to merge the articles or to start a new one. This will ensure you have a consensus before you place you're article, which is always the goal in this collaborative effort. 2) You can resubmit your article to Articles For Creation, and perhaps a different reviewer might find that the article demands to stand on its own. I wouldn't recommend this option---because even assuming that the article was created---if a consensus of your peers does not agree going forward that it should stand on its own--then the articles could be merged without your input or it could be deleted all together, which would undermine your hard work. I hope that helps. Dalisays (talk) 02:14, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Dalisys

Thanks for this - I have taken option 1 and posted new sections in both these locations describing the proposal. I'll review over time and see if a consensus emerges. I understand my draft article will not be deleted?

Regards

Scientist2 (talk) 04:14, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Scientist2, Awesome! As I am sure you will, I hope you get quick feedback from your peers so you can find a happy home for your content! I am 99% sure your article will remain out there in the Wiki-ether and won't be deleted. But, of course, as I am sure you probably already have, I would recommend saving a copy of it offline just in case. Good luck! Dalisays (talk) 04:52, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Donor Committee for Enterprise Development[edit]

Hi. Thanks for reviewing my article. I am sorry to be a nuisance here. I have submitted the article on the DCED three times for review, but each time had it turned down due to copyright, most recently by yourself. I am grateful for the help here. I will now really look at the content I wrote and try and change it. However could I ask for more specific information on why you turned the page down? I really felt that the material was different enough to any other to not have any copyright issues. The structure of the page follows similiar other organisations. The content is laid out in a different manner to the organisation's website and with different wording. Some of it is the same, but this is as some of the wording in the sector is fixed (and used across all relevant wikipedia pages), such as private sector development in conflict affected environments or sustainable poverty reduction/economic development. Numerous references are made in the article. So Im not quite sure where Im going wrong. I imagine you are very busy, but any help would be really appreciated. Thanks very much Ashleyaak (talk) 12:09, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Ashleyaak, Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously, as copyright infringement imputes civil, and in extreme instances, criminal liability. Wikipedia software flags articles, by using software to compare information found on the internet with the content of articles submitted. The article you submitted--as you noted--was flagged after this process. Regardless if this is common wording used elsewhere in other sources, for the purposes of the article it must be rewritten in a novel way. My advice is to cross-reference the sources you used with the article to ensure that there are no more copyright violations, so the article can be reviewed on its merits. I hope that is helpful. Dalisays (talk) 12:49, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi. That is very helpful. Thanks very much Ashleyaak (talk) 12:53, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi:

I have been trying to complete my first Wikipedia entry since February. I have had my submission reviewed twice and I receive the same comment: Need more resources. My page is about an online health supplement company called Dherbs.com. I received most of my facts interviewing the owner and some of the employees, but am supporting their beliefs about natural supplements and holistic medicines by referencing some information I found online. Can you please help me with this? What on my page do you believe I need to better support?

Thank you so much for your assistance and your time, I will take any suggestions you have to offer.

EveofCreation — Preceding unsigned comment added by EveofCreation (talkcontribs) 14:56, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi EveofCreation, Wikipedia only accepts a contributor's original research about a subject if it has been peer-reviewed, e.g. in an independent and reliable secondary source. While I am sure your research about the subject is valuable, unless it can be verified per sources as such, the notability of the subject, per standard for inclusion, can not be established. Perhaps, if you contact the subject again (they may know of where they have been covered) or dig deeper, you might be able to corroborate your research with other sources. I would encourage you do this, and then edit your article using any sources you might find. I hope that is constructive. Dalisays (talk) 04:59, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Bjdean68 (talk) 19:46, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Bjdean68! Sorry for the delay responding. As the last reviewer noted, although the company itself may be notable--and probably is--the sources don't yet establish so. Multiple independent sources that provide coverage of the company in a meaningful way are required to this end. Try to hunt down some independent sources that really dig into the company---that provide some good insight into the company and its significance as a player in the field. I hope that helps.

In regards to your inquiry, the article appears to have been blanked for copyright infringement. So, you will want to edit the article firstly to ensure it does not infringe on copyright; perhaps, you may have used material from the organisation's website? Then, once you have edited the article as such, you need to establish the notability of the organisation. You can do this by including many independent sources that provide reliable coverage of it; just keep in mind, that the sources should NOT be associated with the organisation, and that they should provide meaningful coverage of it-not just mere mention. Then, after you have done that, reread your article to make sure it doesn't appear like an advertisement for the organisation; the tone should be neutral like that of an encyclopedic article. Too many times, when someone like yourself is writing an article about an organisation they are close to, the article comes across as reading like an ad. Hope the helps.

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Abdisalan Sheikh Hassan[edit]

Dalisays,

I read your critique of the above article. I'm curious as to how you weigh WP:SIGCOV, which Abdisalan Sheikh Hassan received from coverage in the New York Times, with WP:Victim and WP:1E? While Hassan was a "victim," he wasn't your typical victim because of his status as a prominent journalist. And in terms of one event, the killing of journalists is a much larger issue, of which there are many Wikipedia articles created for journalists who have been killed. My curiosity here is not to question your decision so much as it is to learn why the judgments sway betwwen SIGCOV and VICTIM/1E. This is not the first time I've experienced this and I've gone through Nominations for Deletion that are saved primarily through SIGCOV. I'm sure your thoughts will be helpful, Thank you, Crtew (talk) 21:07, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Similar debate here: Pedro Alfonso Flores Silva, whose death is covered by The Guardian. This article could be similar to another one from Peru, such as Julio Castillo Narváez.Crtew (talk) 21:26, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Here is one in submission now that is "Death of ... " as the incident itself was what was crucial: Phamon Phonphanit, Thailand. Crtew (talk) 21:35, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

And the situation seems to always be reversed for Western journalists like Gilles Jacquier.Crtew (talk) 21:42, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Any guidance you can offer here would be most appreicated in light of the fact that I have a whole course of students submitting essays similar to these and May 3 is World Press Freedom Day, which will be highlighting situations like these.Crtew (talk) 21:37, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

If you would know other people I should talk to about this issue, I would appreciate their input as well! Thanks so much, and I really do appreciate your efforts as a reviewer. All the best, Crtew (talk) 21:42, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

The issue is one of notability, not of significant coverage; it is important to distinguish the two. A subject's notability always must be established, and then it must be supported by significant coverage. While significant coverage may give a presumption of the subject's notability, it is not a guarantee; the subject must still meet the notability threshold. So, to establish notability, WP: ANYBIO is of foremost concern, in tangent with WP:SIGCOV. Now, having said that, the question becomes what makes this journalist notable, referencing WP:ANYBIO. From the article, the subject's notability doesn't appear to meet these criterion--at least based on the info provided. So, then the sources come into play. There is significant coverage of the journalist, but only of his death, which would give rise to a presumption of notability. But, the journalist must meet the notability guidelines to guarantee it. Since, it doesn't appear the journalist meets WP:ANYBIO this is where WP:Victim and WP:1E come into play. If the journalist's notability is derived from is death (per the sources), then WP: Victim guides, and if the journalist is notable because his death was part of an event, then WP:1E comes into play, and the article really should not be about the journalist but about his death. While I understand your point about considering the wider issue of journalists' deaths, the issue is really about whether each of the journalists, subject of the article, are notable--the article is after all about him/her. While I can't speak to other articles--and it is easy to recognize the fallacy of relying on non-conforming past articles as a guide--it may be possible that the notability of the journalist in those articles is based on his/her work and then--flowing from that--- the death is mentioned. For your students, I would argue this is the best path to ensure the article is accepted and to ensure that it is not deleted down the line by some Wikipedians--that tend to be overzealous in that regard. Dalisays (talk) 21:49, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Just as a follow-up: I would encourage you to post your question at the Help Desk For Articles for Creation, WP:AFCHD, to generate talk amongst the AFC reviewers, in the hopes that a more cogent standard will emerge so it can be applied uniformly. And, of course, your students are always welcome to resubmit their articles for a second review--noting the time sensitivity. Dalisays (talk) 22:04, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Hashmat Medical thing[edit]

You declined it as being unsourced - I'd found out where it had come from (http://hmdc.org/admission etc) and deleted it as a copyvio (Mean as Custard had tagged the author's sandbox, but I had deeper suspicions).. Copied exactly, even to 'Hopspital'. Always be suspicious of things worded too well and looking like brochure or website - I drop a bit into Google to see what happens when I see them. Never does any harm, and only takes a moment. Keep up the good work. Peridon (talk) 16:13, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Florida Taxpayers Union[edit]

I'm not sure I understand why this article is not supported by reliable sources. Sources include the National Taxpayers Union, which refers to it in its Florida page and in its letter to Congress. National Taxpayers Union has a page on WIkipedia. I also used newspaper sources, including Tampa Bay Times, West Orlando News and Orlando Sentinel. Republican Liberty Caucus is also reliable and is an established part of the Republican Party, including Congressional members.Jerosaur (talk) 19:11, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

To establish the notability of the Florida's Taxpayers Union, multiple independent sources that provide reliable coverage of it must be verified. To this end, neither the National Taxpayers Union's website nor its own website are independent and so they can't be used to establish notability. While independent, the other sources, including all those you mentioned, provide no coverage; just mere mention. To support the claim that Florida Taxpayers Union is notable, you have to hunt down some independent articles from reliable sources that delve into it, rather than just providing mention, such as a listing. Hope that helps. Dalisays (talk) 20:25, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

About <The Flavor of corn> article[edit]

Please explain me why you declining the article <The Flavor of corn>. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/The_Flavor_of_Corn I put there all need verifing resourses (You can check it up), but you denied it without even any review. Please explain why that article didint accepted? you wrote that there are no verified resourses, but there are 2 such sourses (check it up). I looking forward for you reply. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.71.151.40 (talk) 16:55, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

To establish the notability of the film, multiple independent and reliable sources that provide coverage are required for verification. For Wikipedia, movie databases, such as the Italian database and IMDB, are not considered independent or reliable nor do they provide coverage. The other article which is provided as a source does not provide coverage, just a review summary. To support the film's notability, you need to include independent film reviews. Dalisays (talk) 17:45, 6 May 2012 (UTC)


Instead of judging that article (judging is most easy thing in this world) you could help me to improve it, like more experienced wikipedist. But if this is just homophobia, you can tell it openly here...... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.71.74.172 (talk) 16:36, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Oahu Wiknic on June 23rd[edit]

Aloha! I am planning to set up an Oahu Wikinic for June 23, as described at Wikipedia:Wiknic

My Wikipedia user name is Peaceray, I started about 15 months ago, & I have about 2,500 edits on en.wikipedia.org. I have been hankering to meet with some fellow local Wikipedians, especially since a few of us live in Kailua. To that end, I am sending email to or posting on the user Talk pages of 19 of us from the Wikipedia:WikiProject Hawaii/Participants page who I could identify as possibly living on Oahu.

Please see Wikipedia:Meetup/Oahu/1 & Wikipedia talk:Meetup/Oahu/1

I am open to any of the locations mentioned in the post, or other alternatives. I am like-to-operate-by-consensus type of guy, any workable location on which we could soon decide would be great!

Mirror Link article _ AfC review[edit]

Hi, had created an AfC request for Mirror link and provided some credible sources as citation. Mirror link is a growing technology & is now already widely accepted as the first step towards a new ecosystem that Nokia is trying to create. Some news websites have already written about Sony & other audio brands launching Mirror Link technology. I have already provded citations and links to those in the draft AfC. Would ask for a re-review of the request & some comments from you. -Ambar wiki (talk) 05:14, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

AfC.[edit]

You declined Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Bryan Sabatella for lacking inline references. However, the very policy quoted there , WP:inline citation says there is in general no such requirement, and I do not see the article is in any of the classes where it is required. I have therefore accepted the article.There is some question of notability, and I have indicated that. DGG ( talk ) 09:23, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User:Ankit0012/sandbox[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on User:Ankit0012/sandbox, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. j⚛e deckertalk 19:05, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
