Draft: rusty anderson afternoon[edit]

Hi, we corresponded awhile back about my draft. I resubmitted it yesterday with new references and it was declined overnight! Is this normal? The prompt I got when I resubmitted was that it would be 3 weeks minimum. I am still working on the links for the Brazilian newspaper I used as a source, but I wanted to get in the queue in the meantime. I'm asking you because you're the only admin who has given me concrete tips in feedback! Here is the page

it's been rejected three times now, but the first time I was told the person had inadequate authority and that was reversed, I was told it was investigated, but I never heard anything else. Then 3 months later I was declined an d they said no primary sources, so I got these secondary sources instead, but now I am told they are not verifiable. I am confused about that big time. Any advice you have would be great. Thank you! Jena Jena fuller (talk) 15:44, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

@Jena fuller: Music is not really my field, but the references do look insufficient. We require references from significant coverage about the topic of the article, and independent of it, and in WP:RS please. See WP:42. In addition you may wish to read WP:MUSIC.
The timescales are what they are. Sometimes an editor will assess a raft at once, other times they hang around for a while. Ills good that yours was looked at quickly. I'm sorry the outcome was;t what you hoped for. The reviewer might also have left further information. I'm going to add a comment on the draft, too. Fiddle Faddle 16:06, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the superfast turnaround, and the helpful links. I see your point. Mr Anderson is ambivalent about a merge, because it won't mean the band comes up as its own entity upon Google search. His page is also WOEFULLY messed up, lots of bad links, put up by who knows whom. Much misinformation presently on that page. I work with, not for, him, doing this as a friend to assist, and am trying to navigate this maze to suss this all out. Jena fuller (talk) 16:14, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
@Jena fuller: Please do your best to divorce your work on Wikipedia from any personal knowledge or friendship with anyone. I'm sure you are doing just that. This means though, ignoring Mr Anderson's wishes completely, simply because they are 100% irrelevant to Wikipedia. At the forefront of your mind must be only what is best for Wikipedia, never for Mr Anderson. The end results is then good for both.
So consider that merge. Google will find it regardless. Wikipedia is so well indexed that big G finds all.
If you are to edit pages, even drafts, about the gentlemen and his endeavours, please use {{Connected contributor}} with parameters filled out, and deploy it in the article or the draft talk page, at the head, probably as the bottom of any set of banners.
Improve references. Make that your modus operandi in all cases.
No need to start new sections on talk pages. See how I have indented this? Fiddle Faddle 16:22, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Now I do, yes. [I think..I hope I did this message right] ☺ thanks Tim! I really appreciate the feedback. Jena fuller (talk) 16:46, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

14:17:09, 23 February 2015 review of submission by IanHislam[edit]

I do not understand what I need to do in order to get this page accepted? We are a huge global company!

Could someone please explain what is missing?

IanHislam (talk) 14:17, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

@IanHislam: This is not a priority for you, is it? You have made no changes to the draft since I rejected it, giving reasons on 8 October 2014. What you have to do is to provided excellence in referencing. That is, with more precision when I said it, what I said. Fiddle Faddle 17:01, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Wow how rude are you? And you represent Wiki? As I said, examples of referencing would have been helpful as your tone, English and website section were all very unclear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by IanHislam (talkcontribs) 16:28, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

@IanHislam: no. I represent myself. Now be a good WP:COI editor and go do your research properly. I am not about to find example references for you. People who get touchy when they have a conflict of interest are likely to fail anyway. COI editors are ten a penny. Welcome to the club of those who get tripped up by their conflict of interest.
