HELP!!!!!!!!![edit]

Dear Missionedit,
This is my first year on WikipediaI'vend I'm not on very often. I'm really bad with technology but Wikipedia is articlesomething my friends tell me I should use because I have all these useless facts in my brain that they say Wikipedia is the place for. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to edit because I'm afraid of making a mistake and I don't want to make a new page because what if it's really bad and no one likes it? It's taken me a while to contact a host because I'm rather shy by nature and independent. What do I do??????? Sincerely, PythonessofDelphi — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pythonessofdelphi (talkcontribs) 23:21, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello PythonessofDelphi, it's very nice to meet you! I'd be glad to help you with any questions you have :) Would you rather be called PythonessofDelphi or Hope?
If you want to make an article on Wikipedia, I would highly recommend using the Wikipedia:Articles for Creation wizard. This process helps make sure that your article is notable enough for Wikipedia, and that it has enough sources to support it's facts (it also helps make sure that your article won't get deleted in the future). What topic(s) would you like to create an article about?
If you have information about a topic that already has an article, feel free to add that info to the article, but you should make sure that any facts you add are backed up with a reliable source. For information on how to put sources in articles, Wikipedia:Citing sources is very helpful. And if an edit you make gets deleted, don't panic :) It happens to everyone, even very experienced editors.
I'll be on Wikibreak for the next week, so I'll take a while for me to respond to any messages you leave me. One last thing--when you post things on talk pages, make sure you type 4 tildes (~~~~) after your post. This will leave your username and the date. Cheerio! ~ Anastasia (talk) 01:11, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Dear Missionedit (Anastasia),
To answer your first question, I would rather be called PythonessofDelphi. I've heard of making new pages/articles in the sand box but what is Wikipedia Articles for creation?? Thanks a lot!!!! Pythonessofdelphi (talk) 12:14, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Articles for creation is a help feature of Wikipedia that makes it easy to find out if you should create your article (and how to create your article) by asking you a series of easy-to-answer questions. Click on this link, then click on the "Click here to create an article now!" button to get started! ~ Anastasia (talk) 00:16, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Help![edit]

Again I'm having problems with Kendall Yount could you help fix the said issue ? 2600:1015:B11C:6F56:0:49:ED5A:6801 (talk) 02:56, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Which "said issue" would that be? ~ Anastasia (talk) 00:17, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Well i am unsure as to how to "clean up" the page to make it more benificial to wikipedia. Do you know how to better meet those standards? UnitedStatesofAmerica2014 (talk) 00:00, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

@UnitedStatesofAmerica2014: Well, one thing you could possibly do to clean up the prose is to submit a copyedit request to the Guild of Copyeditors. This will cause someone experienced in copyediting to come and have a go-over of the page. ~ Anastasia (talk) 02:48, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Andrew Brook[edit]

Hi,

I hope all is well this afternoon. I looked at the notability criterion and my article does meet the criterion in at least 2 ways: 1) Andrew Brook received the Rhodes scholar award (which is one of the highest awards someone can receive while they are in university and 2) most of the references I left at the bottom were to reviews in journals about the book. So unless an academic article about a book doesn't meet the criterion, I think that must be a mistake.

Best,

Brandon — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brandon Michaud (talkcontribs) 21:48, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Brandon Michaud, these are the reasons why your submission was declined as not meeting the notability criterion: 1) No sources are cited which state that Andrew Brook was Rhodes scholar, including the Rhodes scholars list at Oxford. 2) Because a book was reviewed several journals doesn't make it's author necessarily notable. If anything, an article about the book would be more appropriate.
Also, when you post on talk pages, you always want to sign your posts with 4 tides (~~~~). This will produce your username and the date. Thanks! ~ Anastasia (talk) 16:40, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank You![edit]

I am having some trouble figuring everything out on Wikipedia, and have asked my son to help me a bit. I have so much to learn & am feeling really, really challenged, and slow. I am grateful for all the editing and help I've been receiving & hope to get my contribution up to snuff very soon.22:29, 6 July 2014 (UTC)mujerymadre — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lisa A. Banner (talkcontribs)

Thank you for tackling the immense (but very rewarding) project of learning how to edit Wikipedia! When I first started editing Wikipedia, I felt very overwhelmed by all the policies and guidelines and gizmos that keep it running, not being used to using Wiki Markup and all that computer stuff. But pretty soon, I realized that everyone here is very friendly (except for the occasional WikiTroll :] ), and if I have any questions, I can just ask someone more experienced than me. So just keep plugging along, and you will eventually get there! One the things that really helped me was the Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user program. Adoption by another user really is a great resource, although it does require a moderate amount of commitment.

Trouble with Sources[edit]

Hello, thank you for making your page available to us newbies! I am having a bit of trouble with a section of the page Zico (rapper) regarding a 2013 diss battle that went on within the Korean hip hop scene.

Further information: Zico (rapper) § 2013

My main problem is that while a lot of sources which report on Korean hiphop can verify its ongoings, those sources walk the line between news and opinion constantly and they cannot be considered Wikireliable, or the more reliable sources have not explicitly translated the Zico-related parts of the story. "E-Sens responds to Gaeko with 'True Story' and Simon D drops 'Control' in response to Swings". Allkpop. Retrieved 9 July 2014. "Swings Starts It All: K-Hip-Hop And “Control,” Part 1". Seoulbeats. Retrieved 9 July 2014.  Here are some Korean sources:"Korean "Control" Track History". HiphopPlaya. Retrieved 9 July 2014. "something like "Amoeba Culture Fights Back"". Nate News. Retrieved 9 July 2014. 

I suppose the root of the problem is that most of these hiphop artists decided to self-publish their response tracks on Soundcloud, but the mainstream media didn't follow it very closely. There aren't many small journalistic organizations in Korea, you just have your big portals. So I have the first-hand tracks, and I have what I think are reliable translations, except they have .blogspot ending from Uncharted Sound, but I just don't really have any unifying elements. Should I just request translations for some of the Korean articles? Or abandon it altogether? Any advice would really be appreciated Asdklf; (talk) 17:49, 9 July 2014 (UTC)Asdklf;

Requesting translation maybe a good idea, but perhaps might not be worth the effort. You can cite non-English sources in the English Wikipedia without translation (see WP:NONENG). The citing of music tracks and other audio is also acceptable (see WP:CT). If no other sources can be found to back this section up than the ones you already have, and you know that the topic is notable, it would be best to only include information that is found in multiple sources to help establish it's verifiablity. Be VERY careful in including only what's necessary, biographies of living people can get tricky with sources like this. I understand your dilemma--hmmm. A hard one to solve. ~ Anastasia (talk) 19:37, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay, so I linked the english lyrics not AS references but into the references so they are connected to the soundcloud entries and located a source which better encapsulates the whole diss-track response thing in total so I believe there is now appropriate context. Thank you for the advice! I think just writing everything out helped a lot. Thank you for your time!Asdklf; (talk) 03:32, 10 July 2014 (UTC)Asdklf;

Thank you, and draft question[edit]

Anastasia, thank you for the welcome! User:Ocaasi suggested after I've written my draft to ask at the teahouse for help. I hope you will. I'm an artist and feel like I've written a draft that, while I have the COI issue, is very impartial and verifiable. I only used information that could be found on cited sources. I tried to follow guidelines and policy as best I could and write the best draft I could. I have it as a draft on my User:Dedlen page. I don't know what to do now. I didn't want to submit it before reaching out to the editor community to see what you would say. I hope it's acceptable and notable and worth submitting. Please let me know! Dedlen (talk) 20:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, you're in luck! It so happens that as well as being a Teahouse host, I am also a reviewer of article drafts at Wikipedia:Articles for Creation. Looking at the article from a non-biased point of view, I would say that your article meets the notability guideline. You've done a pretty good job with sourcing and categories. However, it is next to impossible to create an article about yourself that is completely unbiased, especially since when looking at yourself, it hard consider which info should be included and which info should not. Your wording/tone leaves a little to be desired in an encyclopedia article, but this can be easily fixed once it's approved. As a guess, your article will probably pass review. But don't bet on it, I'm only human :) One other thing you should know- when you submit your article for review, expect a long wait. There are over 1000 submissions waiting to be reviewed and only so many reviewers. ~ Anastasia (talk) 20:57, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for checking it out! What do I do next? Do I use the submit button in the draft notice on my page? Is there a way to submit it directly to you? Dedlen (talk) 21:06, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

User:Dedlen followup question[edit]

I went ahead and used the submit button for my draft and followed the suggestion to move it to Draft:Dedlen for consideration. Is there a way for it to be assigned to you since you're already familiar with it? Thanks again for your help! Dedlen (talk) 14:54, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

@Dedlen: Well, editors usually "assign" themselves to articles of their choice. I would feel a little weird reviewing an article which I predicted would pass, if you know what I mean :) I'll see what I can do. ~ Anastasia (talk) 21:10, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
thank you. It was already reviewed! With 900+ I didn't expect that fast. So I tried to modify the phrases that were suggested I change. I'm waiting to find out the reviewer's thoughts. I really appreciate your help and hope to get the article eventually accepted! Dedlen (talk) 15:44, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
I made some changes and added some citations. It was suggested I contact the Teahouse again to check before submitting it again. Could you look and see what you think now? Thank you again! Dedlen (talk) 15:34, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
@Dedlen: Prose looks a lot better! Good job improving it, I can understand the article much easier now. Also the extra sources help establish notability. ~ Anastasia (talk) 03:39, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
thank you! Terrific. So should I resubmit it do you think? Dedlen (talk) 04:04, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
@Dedlen: Yep. See what happens :) Good luck! ~ Anastasia (talk) 17:16, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I resubmitted it. Is it typical for the same reviewer to review it again or does a different person usually do it? I really appreciated how fast the first one was but don't know the policies or common practices. Dedlen (talk) 11:08, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

@Dedlen: 99% of the time a reviewer will not review the same article again, for many reasons. One of them is that there are so many different reviewers. Another is just preference. Unless you ask your reviewer (or any reviewer, see the reviewer list) to review it specifically, someone else will review it instead. FYI your article was only reviewed so quickly because I asked someone to do it :) ~ Anastasia (talk) 17:20, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

I know :) thank you so much. I'll look at the list or just wait. It makes sense someone else should review it. Thanks again! Dedlen (talk) 19:42, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

01:02:45, 19 July 2014 review of submission by NileFlores[edit]


NileFlores (talk) 01:02, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Thanks for reviewing, but I have an honest question. I'd like to edit and submit for a re-review, but I'm a tad confused. Is not WordPress.org, Mashable, Matt Cutts, Go Daddy (yep- the web host, on their blog), and The Guardian not noteworthy enough? I've cited those sources. I mean, I could listed hundreds of URLs from lots of resources. WordPress Powers 20% of the entire Internet and this guy and his company is responsible for creating a SEO tool for WordPress (actually 2) that is well known all over the world. His plugin is referenced in SEOMoz, Neil Patel of QuickSprout and KissMetrics mention his plugin, WPBeginner, and much more. How much notable are you looking for? I don't want to sound rude, but I honestly need to know. :) NileFlores (talk) 01:02, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

There's nothing rude about wanting to understand :) I apologize for not clarifying further! Notability is not determined by the number of sources. It depends on the quality of the sources, and how they are related to the subject. WordPress.org is definitely a huge corporation. However, sources from WordPress do not establish notability in this instance because Yoast is affiliated with WordPress. Same with The Guardian, Yoast was paid to help them change their domain. See Wikipedia:Independent sources for more info.
The other sources, Mashable and Matt Cutts, are independent, but there is nothing more than a passing mention of Yoast in the articles cited. If you want to the establish notability of this company, independent, reliable sources which give significant coverage of it are needed. See the Wikipedia:Golden rule. Does that answer all of your question? ~ Anastasia (talk) 02:53, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
