This is my first article and I do not know what references have to be made . As I have put in lot of refrences from National and International Newspaper.
I want to write about this person because He being from Militant hit state of Jammu & Kashmir has provided opportunities to lot of youngsters and also is also role model for all young people.
Please let me know how changes have to be done
- The issue wasn't that it lacked sources; it was just that it wasn't formatted properly. I would suggest visiting WP:Referencing for beginners to see how to properly cite a source. I also found that your submission lacked section headings. You'd find it useful to add a section heading using the following markups: ==Early life and education==. hmssolentlambast patrol records 00:22, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.
With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs!

The Gold STiki Barnstar of Merit
|Congratulations, HMSSolent! You're receiving this barnstar of merit because you recently crossed the 25,000 classification threshold using STiki.
We thank you both for your contributions to Wikipedia at-large and your use of the tool.
Have revised to add relevant information. Page created to provide a link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rowing_Boat_Manufacturers.
It is great to have the list of manufacturers, but more important to have information beyond just links to the commercial pages.
Still looking for good content, but largely limited to Spanish sources.
This is a learning experience for me - I have made minor edits for a while, but this is first new article.
- At this point, the submission can not be accepted at the moment as it lacks a number of reliable, secondary sources. Please see WP:Reliable sources and WP:CORP for further information on what is required to establish a company's notability. You will also need to cite your sources in the form of footnotes; see WP:Referencing for beginners for further reference. hmssolentlambast patrol records 15:28, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
