'Alternating rhyme' decline

Hi there, I'm new to this and I'm not quite sure if I am to contact you directly, but here I am. You declined the submission of my proposed article 'Alternating rhyme' but I feel that due to every example on the 'Rhyme scheme' article having its own page, 'alternating rhyme' should have its own too. Especially as I have more information in my article than some of the others, and it's also arguably one of the most notable.

I'm sorry if this was a little abrasive, I really do appreciate what you do. I freaking love Wikipedia. And that's why I want to contribute.

Thank you, Isaac — Preceding unsigned comment added by Isaac Mayne (talkcontribs) 22:18, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

hello there! thank you for your comments. i agree with what you said. your submission could easily be accepted. make sure it follows the Wikipedia:Manual of Style and it's references are good: Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners. cheers, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 11:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

I would like to disagree with the decision.

Reason: "NON coding DNA" and "NOT coding DNA" are entirely two different entities .

NON Coding means RNA coding NOT Coding means it is the neither RNA coding nor Protein coding...

I would appreciate if this key difference is considered and the article accepted. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pawandhar (talkcontribs) 12:26, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

hello! thank you for your comments. you are right, but i'm afraid your article is not a valid one for main space, given that it's a review of a scientific article, and as such falls under WP:NOT. regards, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 13:04, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

New Page: List of operas performed at the Santa Fe Opera

Hi FoCuSandLeArN:

I have worked on the general list for the Santa Fe Opera in much the same way that this page was built. I would like to see that the page becomes recognized so that I can link to it from The Santa Fe Opera page and so that others will help update it.



ps It is great fun to learn this much about opera, but my neck is getting tired. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alltherestissilence (talkcontribs) 04:53, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

hello there! yes, what would the world be without opera? i can't seem to find your submission. would you be so kind as to paste a link so we can work on it together? cheers, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 12:00, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

The page I am working on is in my sandbox, found here: I hope you can see it. If not let me know how you want me to submit the page for review. Thanks, Kevin — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alltherestissilence (talkcontribs) 13:58, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

looks very good, you should submit it thru the AfC process, or just using a red link. For example, search on wiki for "List of operas performed at the Santa Fe Opera" and use that red link to create the article. after you've finished, a curator will review it. good luck!

review of the submission Asbestos-related diseases

Hi FoCuSandLeArN,

thank you for reviewing my article on Asbestos-related diseases. However, I was very surprised that the submission was declined. The recommendation to edit already existing section Health problems that is only a paragraph in the article focusing on Asbestos underestimate the importance of this topic. Asbestos-related diseases are one of the major topics/problems of occupational medicine. Thanks--Silvousis (talk) 23:08, 21 January 2013 (UTC)Silvousis

hello there! the health section on the asbestos article is very extensive, plus you'll find that most of those diseases have articles of their own. feel free to submit the article again and perhaps start a discussion in the Wikipedia:Teahouse to see if it should be a separate article. that would certainly be enriching for all of us. regards, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 01:55, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Reason for deletion.

Hello, I do not understand why this article is deleted because of unreliable sources. This article is about a television presenter, not some academic research. Although the subject is a prominent TV presenter, it is crucial to understand that there are no books written about him/her.

I hope that the you can accept the article as it is needed for the advancement of Malaysian entertainment industry. Nurulizzah2013 (talk) 02:39, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

hello. first of all, i don't know which article you're referring to. secondly, the subject of an article need to be notable, and to establish their notability, references need to be adequate. to grasp what wikipedia considers adequate referencing, take a look at Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners (books are just one form of citation). lastly, wikipedia is not for the advancement of anything other than itself and it's objectives. thank you and feel free to ask me anything else, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 11:27, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Articles for creation/Naval jack

Your rejection of my well-meant effort to create the article Naval jack was very disappointing. I found it a bit discouraging and a perhaps not quite in keeping with the admonition above: Be welcoming to new users. I am not exactly a newcomer to Wikipedia in English, but this was my first attempt to start a new article, and the rejection bodes ill for new attempts in the future. I am surprised that you do not see the need for an article on this subject in English. There are WP articles about naval jacks in many other languages. Only the French, Polish and English versions treat the subject under the wider term Maritime flag or ensign. What I see as the finest quality of Wikipedia is the way articles may start out as too short or deficient in some respects, but they will always improve as a result of teamwork - what we Norwegians call dugnad. Vexillologists will expect to find a separate article about naval jacks. You suggest that I merge my bit into the Maritime flag article. But that would let this minor subject occupy too much space in the major article. The information already there is sufficient. Roede (talk) 21:38, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Hello there. Please do not interpret my review as either definitive or ill-intended. I just did what I thought was adequate. You are free to submit the article for review again, and in fact that is encouraged. You might also want to start a discussion at the Wikipedia:Teahouse as to whether it should indeed be a separate article. If you reach a consensus among Vexillologists (there are quite a few on Wiki) then that's great! Good luck and hope you have a good week. FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 21:53, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Resubmission of edited article Dr Beric John Croome for review (2)

hi FoCuSandLeArN

It's me again (sorry!). I refer to our talk of 13-15 January 2013 (now under your talk archive 3, number 29)

When you get the time please could you check whether I have resubmitted the edited article for Dr Beric John Croome correctly this time? It appears in December I did not re-submit the edited article properly (my bad!).

I had hopep that I'd re-submitted it correctly after our chat early this month, but in the article for creation page all I can find is the (now edited) page, still showing "declined on 5th December 2012".

Is this correct and you have the article in your queue for review, or have I not "got" it yet & still need to resubmit? :)

My apologies for coming back to you so quickly after the last query, but I don't want to leave it for weeks again before checking (as I did in December), just in case it's my error rather than a matter of the edited article waiting in the queue.

Thanks again for your help - much appreciated.

Copy edits

Hello again. First, thanks for doing an incredible hundred copy edits (and counting!) for the WP:GOCE backlog drive. I'm trying to check a scattering of work from all the major participants today, and I looked at a handful of yours. Everything looks to be well done, for the most part, but I have a few minor points. At Gaspar Flores de Abrego, I pulled the duplicate ref tags from the sentence about mayoral terms. Generally, if information is all referenced to the same thing, it doesn't need to be reffed for each point. I initially just pulled a couple from the middle, but then decided the last four items could all be referenced by the same source, instead of needing both. There was also some off spacing between the two references, and they were out of order. At King Sangaldip, I trimmed some from the war section. It wasn't quite a run-on sentence, but it left me out of breath by the end of it. That one also had the reference in front of the period, instead of behind it. Your other edits all look very good. Thanks for doing so much to help us this month! Cheers. —Torchiest talkedits 21:09, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your feedback. During my relatively short tenure as an editor, I'm glad to say I've found new things every week, and get even more involved as time goes by. That's been the case with the GOCE. I previously didn't even know it existed! So I appreciate the appreciation, and will learn from everyone's comments. No worries, and I will continue to do so.

Criminal copyright infringement

Hey, I submitted the article on criminal copyright infringement. ( While I understand why topics should be grouped as subheadings in other pages, in this case it seems awkward (which is why I split it off in the first place).

  1. There's a lot of information that has to do with criminal copyright law that does not overlap with civil law (the vast majority of the laws governing intellectual property have, until very recently, been primarily civil).
  2. A lot of the developed case-law and legislation surrounding criminal copyright liability is US-based. Thus, while I could put the information in as subsections in copyright infringement, having its own article makes more sense (perhaps change the title to "US Criminal copyright infringement"?)
  3. You responded: "The proposed article does not have sufficient content to require an article of its own, but it could be merged into the existing article at Copyright infringement." Did you read my article? Most of the content is different and criminal copyright law-specific. I put it in its own section in copyright infringement and it just looks awkward, kind of dominates the page and detracts from the broader topic of copyright infringement by containing too much information on one facet of the law and discussion.

Anyways, let me know. Arttechlaw (talk) 18:40, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Nevermind, managed to integrate the information in a way that wasn't so awkward. Cheers! Arttechlaw (talk) 19:25, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
hello there. sorry about the misunderstanding. that was the template text. if you feel that there should be a US Criminal copyright infringement article, then maybe get the quorum at the teahouse and go for it! cheers, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 22:12, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

migration of moroccan Jews to Israel

Hello FoCuSandLeArN, Thank you very much for reviewing my submission! I am sorry I did not reply earlier (I'm a student and exam time is upon me :) )

you may not remember my article as it has been a while, but I wrote about moroccan jews immigration to israel. The article could not be made public as it lacked references. The article is actually a translation from the hebrew wikipedia of the same title. Would that count as referencing? in their article they do reference one additional article- however- t was published in Hebrew- is that relevant- should I reference it? Or would you suggest me to fins background material in English that I can reference?

Thank yuo very much for all your time Meital — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meitsi (talkcontribs) 13:20, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello there! it is not exactly a reference, but it does give it a better standing than an article with no references at all. references can be in any language, that's no problem. i would also recommend that you find more references. good luck, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 13:27, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Creation of new article: Kienbaum Consultants International

Dear FoCuSandLeArN,

I have recently created an article on Kienbaum Consultants International. This article has been rejected as it did not contain enough sources. The problem is that the text I submitted is a direct translation of the Kienbaum article on the German Wikipedia page. This article has been submitted by the company itself and the only concrete source is the website of the company ( or As we especially arranged for the German Wikipedia text to be translated so we can feature the company on the English wikipedia as well, could you please let me know how exactly we need to improve it in order to have it published?

Thanks in advance, with kind regards (talk) 09:55, 4 February 2013 (UTC)Kienbaum_Wied

hello there. usually a single source that is the subject's website is not enough to establish the notability of said subject. also, you should probably read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. cheers, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 12:17, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Creation of new article: Dog-gone Sauce

Good Morning FoCuSandLeArN, You rejected my article [Dog-gone Sauce] for creation because it reads like an advertisement. I have being reading the wiki guidelines for days it seems and read similar articles several times trying to write it like they are. I have been trying my best to just make statements about information that is found in the references and not seeing where it not just advertising. Could you please help me and be specific about which words, sentence or paragraph makes it read like this? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks The Hal Apeno (talk) 14:16, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

hello there. thank you for your comments. first of all, there are no references, just external links. secondly, the entire history paragraph isn't adequately written, for instance "Jeff Schmidt has a passion for aiding animals in need and enjoys creating hot sauces" is not a sentence appropriate for wikipedia. the sauce in itself doesn't seem notable, not from the links provided in any case. cheers, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 14:40, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the input, since I have only been on wiki a few weeks and this is my first article, I'm sure you understand my challenges.

First I would like to make the case of how I believe that Dog-gone Sauce meets all qualities of Notability by definition. Since it's a big portion of even having the article I hope you agree. '''Notability''' is the property of being worthy of notice, having fame, or being considered to be of a high degree of interest, significance, or distinction.

Worthy of notice – DGS is getting noticed by media as they have written articles and reviews about the company that can be found by searches on the internet.

Having fame – DGS is famous in Animal and Hot Sauce communities. Being famous is a subjective term and measurable degrees of fame are subject to constant change for everyone and everything.

Interest – DGS has found the interest of newspapers and internet bloggers as evidenced in the references. There have been numerous articles written about the company and their service to the community.

Significance - DGS company was created for a purpose that serves the animal shelter and rescue community where the need to raise funds is of great significance to them. Since 64% of homes in the US have pets, shelters are of large importance to the entire community.

Distinction – DGS has established it's distinction in society as the only hot sauce company that donates 100% of the profits to animal shelters.

Second, would an appropiate statement be "Dog-gone Sauce Company was created from Jeff Schmidt's passion from ...." ?

Third, I thought that having the Reference Section I was covering them in an alternate format. Do I have to create note marks (1) to link to the articles I'm getting the information from?

Once again I appreciate your input and patience while I'm learning. I feel that I can be an asset to the wiki community once I survive the learning curve The Hal Apeno (talk) 16:19, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Notability is a Wikipedia policy. I did not mean the lexical meaning. Please see Wikipedia:Notability. Regards, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 17:25, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

I believe that it meets notability, "product has attracted the notice of reliable sources unrelated to the organization or product" as I have referenced 4 reliable unrelated sources. I will continue to read about writing articles and about other companies so I can learn the process and write a good article. Thanks for the input The Hal Apeno (talk) 18:02, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

if sources are independent and reliable then you should cite them as explained here. usually adjectives or all other attributes are kept to a minimum, unless they represent a referenced viewpoint. FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 18:22, 4 February 2013 (UTC)


Hello FoCuSandLeArN, thanks a lot for the welcome and tips. ^_^ (Hope I sent this message correctly, as I'm still getting used to the UI.) MV360 (talk) 17:51, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

rescue dina foxx article

hi there, could you please advise on how sources could be improved? i used various official (german!) public newspaper articles (established, very serious newspapers as well as media-specific news-services) and explanations from the companies and creators. (the structure of the project can only be explained thru the creators illustrations) the only thing i can think of is to reference inline rather than at the end of paragraphs. or articles in english but there are almost no english sources unfortunately.

i based the structure on an article about a very similar project which only as one source mentioned (next to the emmy-page):

Submission denial

You recently denied my submission to create an article for Jeffrey Wisenbaugh II. I was wondering if you could give me a more specific reason why. You claim "those references are not suitable. he is notable, however the references are not of the necessary quality", yet everything is backed up by a source. He's a presenter for Ryan Seacrest Productions (I linked his page at RSP's website). He won an Emmy (I linked an article that announces his winning). I don't know what more you want. What are you considering a "reliable source" to be if not news articles and Ryan Seacrest's own website? Thanks, Thatguynamedben

What does all of that means? (talk) 19:57, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

they're a set of guidelines you should take into account when creating such articles. they're for your personal perusal. FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 21:30, 14 February 2013 (UTC)


Hello FoCuSandLeArN I did already edit the potato protein-article before I notice the "contact me" part of your message, sorry about that. I feel it's important to know that potatoes do have protein and when you can isolate it (purify) so none of the starch is present you can have a good protein source to consume. I try personally to avoid milk products and several members of my family are gluten sensitive (I'm from Finland...) and for the potato protein isolate is a good product Have a good day!SKSCILCPH (talk) 05:04, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Adam Diamond

Hi, I noticed you had recently declined Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Adam Diamond, which I just deleted it as an attack page. Instead of simply declining similar content in the future, just tag it for CSD. Thanks Secret account 20:01, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Sure, it must've been a slip of the click! Thanks for the heads-up, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 20:29, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Also Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Derek Sheild which was a worse attack piece than the first one. Secret account 05:03, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Word Count and Total Words for GOCE

I was wondering if you could explain how to calculate the word count (and total words) for the articles you copyedit for the Guild of Copy Editors. From your recent participation in the Blitz, you seem to know how it works and I can't find documentation on how to do it.
Thanks for your help! - ʈucoxn\talk 21:30, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Sure, have a look at User:Dr pda/prosesize. After you install the script, on the toolbox at the left-hand side there's a button that says "page size". if you click on it it'll give you the word count for that article. when you count words towards the blitz, include the whole word count for every article you edit. hope that helps, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 21:38, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the useful explanation. Yours was better than what I just found in this old Signpost article about the GOCE. Thanks again! - ʈucoxn\talk 22:26, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Moroccan Jews Migration to Israel

Hey FoCuSandLeArN'

You checked my submission a couple of weeks ago, an article about the migration of Morocco's Jews to Israel/ It was rejected due to lack of proper referencing. The article I wrote is a translation of a page in the Hebrew wikipedia and therefore that is a reference, but I wasn't sure if to reference it or to link it to the article in hebrew on the side bar of wikipedia. There is another reference the original authors used, however it is of a study carried out in Hebrew and I wasn't sure if that would be much help to non-Hebrew speaking users of wikipedia. Should I reference that in any case? Could you suggest ways for me to proceed?

Thank you very much Meital — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meitsi (talkcontribs) 22:42, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello there. I had previously answered your question about two or three weeks ago: references can be in any language. if you translated the article from Hebrew wiki, then i suggest you say so in the references section, i.e. this article is a translation of the article found on Hebrew Wikipedia. hope this helps, FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 23:06, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Refugee Protest Camp Vienna

Greetings, FoCuSandLeArN. I received notice that you had declined to accept my submission of an article. You wrote, "This submission appears to be a news report of a single event and may not be notable enough for an article in Wikipedia. Please see Wikipedia:NOT#NEWS and Wikipedia:ONEEVENT for more information." I wonder if I could ask you for some more detailed feedback? The refugee protest is a single event, yes, one that has been in the headlines in Vienna for months now. It's also connected with several other refugee protests in Europe, principally in the German-speaking world, that have not been covered by the English- (or Spanish-, for that matter; leo que Usted domina también el castellano) speaking press. The refugees are dialoguing both with the highest church authority in Austria, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, and with the president of the Republic of Austria, Heinz Fischer. Please see,_Vienna#Refugees, which I have just expanded upon. A demonstration in Vienna in support of the refugee protest last Saturday drew 2000 people, though I haven't added that to the article.

I submitted this piece to Wikinews on the recommendation of Bede735 (,_Vienna). In my opinion, based on having scanned the applicable articles, the refugee protest camp is both newsworthy and noteworthy.

So, time and energy permitting, could I ask you to provide me with some specific guidance as to how to procede in accordance with Wikipedia's system?

Thanks much.

Yours, Toanke (talk) 10:41, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

hello there. I understand your concern and would recommend that you reference the article appropriately and that you also include the implications of said event, in order to establish its notability. why would someone need to find out about the situation? but make sure it's referenced accordingly. see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners.
