Portal assignment for new article[edit]

I was thrilled to see my first original article in mainspace. However, I'm a little puzzled because the article is about a research area in cross-cultural psychology, and I expected it to be in the psychology portal. Instead, it's in the China and Sociology portals. How do I get it listed in the Psychology portal? (I've started a Category for "Cross-cultural psychology in the Psychology portal.)

The article is currently C-class. Besides adding more material from articles (which you kindly provided), how can I improve it? And how technical should I get? I have two masters degrees in psych and I'm used to writing in APA journal format, which would be a bit like classical Greek to the average reader.

Thanks again for reviewing the article. I now feel confident enough to write articles independently. Shandong44 (talk) 02:48, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

To change which Wikiproject(s) the article belongs to, simply edit the article's talk page. I have added {{WikiProject Psychology}} yo can remove the others if you don't believe they apply.
I think what you have up there right now is about as technical as you want to get. Don't be surprised or offended if other editors come by and want to make their own improvements the article - now that it is in mainspace, that's what's supposed to happen.
The sources I put on the talk page are WP:SECONDARY. We prefer these over WP:PRIMARY at Wikipedia because they usually contain more accessible material with better perspective on the topic. If you introduce more material from secondary sources, you will naturally move the article to where it needs to be.
Congratulations on your degrees. Please be aware that, unlike journal articles, we don't like to see WP:ORIGINAL research in Wikipedia articles. ~KvnG 15:39, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Ernest Element[edit]


Thank you for your review of the Ernest Element article, I have now got to the point where I cannot be bothered to continue trying to get this article submitted, Ernest played weekly on the BBC radio and toured the world with some of the great musicians including playing for edward elgar, there are already four wikipedia articles that mention him:

Due to newspapers still updating their previous issues online I am unable to source his obituary online although he is mentioned in others such as:

And continued entries from the BBC Genome project being added (

Is it easier just to delete this article, this has gone from trying to add some value to being a chore.

OK. If you're done, rather than abandoning it and having it deleted for sure, I think we should move the article as it is to mainspace and see if it survives. ~KvnG 14:30, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Request on 14:51:45, 26 November 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by Awesomelisa[edit]

I'd like more information on why my article was rejected (it seems it has been deleted so I cannot see the reviewers comments). I would also like the opportunity to amend the article so it meets Wikipedia's requirements. I've seen today my article has been rejected due to copyright issues. I can't seem to see any comments on the draft page -- which has been deleted. I don't believe I violated copyright, I put sources whenever I used material that was not written by myself. I would like to know more about this, and would also like the opportunity to amend the article and resubmit it. I see one comment there has been copyright infringement (it references an article that I referenced in the wikipedia entry -- I don't see how it can be copyright infringement if it is cited?

Please let me know. I'm keen to begin contributing more to Wikipedia and would like to use this as a learning experience to ensure future submissions conform to the Wikipedia community's guidelines. Thank you very much.

Have a look at WP:COPYVIO. In brief, although there are limited exceptions, you can't copy stuff to Wikipedia without permission. An easy way to start contributing to Wikipedia is to improve existing articles. ~KvnG 15:01, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Is there a way to see what specific violation was made? Everything I copied from external sources was quoted and cited. The page seems to have already been deleted, otherwise I would review the submission to see if I could identify the problem. Please let me know, thanks!

I assume we are talking about Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage? No WP:COPYVIO there. Looks like it still exists. The reviewer suggested editing Child marriage to include this material. ~KvnG 16:16, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

00:31:10, 1 December 2014 review of submission by[edit]

I'm kind of confused. I've been on wikipedia a lot before, and I've seen tons of articles with only one line and they manage to be accepted and stay as a wikipedia page. How come mine can't? Thanks! (talk) 00:31, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Mark Tuan existed previously and was deleted so I am suggesting you improve List_of_Got7_members&redirect=no#Mark to avoid the same outcome. Articles on Wikipedia are supposed to meet the WP:NOTABILITY requirements. You are correct that many do not but that is not justification for including more like them. ~KvnG 01:57, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

21:28:24, 2 December 2014 review of submission by Willygg[edit]

Could you please give me an example(s) of what needs to be further referenced. I have done a number of hyperlinks to show where the work Mick Jones has done can be found. Details like birth, upbringing, schooling and college are difficult to reference and comes from family and friends. It can also be verified in published obituaries referenced at the end of the article. Perhaps I should move these to the beginning...would this help? Should I also put a list of any written references at the end of the entry. Should i also break up the entry into sections?

Hey there! Thanks for reviewing the page and for your comments, this is very helpful. Can I please get additional feedback on the article's content? I'm not really sure what "sufficient content" would entail. It would help me revise this article accordingly.

Thanks for your help and guidance,

I previously edited (without making an account) the page to remove the % symbol in the PO equation and the damping ratio equation.

The equations divide and multiply by 100%, which is the equivalent of 1 (i.e. 100% = 1). Should it not instead be 100 instead of 100% ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lake0010 (talkcontribs) 06:39, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi there Kvng,

I hope I find you well.

I have just received your note regarding my submission for a Wikipedia Article: Ranto Bokgo. I am an avid fan and unofficial publicist, in support of the artist and hereby submit his bio as a person of note, at least across Zimbabwe-Swedish cultural lines. Your note alludes to a copyright infringement, of which I am not aware of? May you pls clarify Wikipedias position, and why this artist, who for example was the first band on earth to play/open the inaugural Fifa World Cup Concert 2010 held in Johannesburg, South Africa with his band Steady Rock, continues to get red-flagged as a submission of a person/artist of note?

Yours sincerely.
