Request on 00:07:50, 13 September 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by Pcampsie[edit]

I have written an English-language entry on Pierre Emile Lelong, which has been rejected for lack of documentation. I have cited the three available monographs on this French artist, a French newspaper, and an English reference work. I do not understand what is missing. I have spent months researching this artist, and have documented my work very carefully. Will someone please explain to me why "Coin945" whoever he/she is, feels that this entry is unacceptable?

Pcampsie (talk) 00:07, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Accepted You needs to ask the reviewer who declined it why they did so. The references should, ideally, but not mandatorily, have links to online versions if you can find them, but the article meets our acceptance criteria. You moved it to the incorrect location, and I have sorted all that out for you. Fiddle Faddle 06:21, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

18:56:25, 13 September 2014 review of draft by[edit]

I am looking in to making a page on Roland Habisreutinger and I copy and pasted from the italian wikipedia is that aloud or not because i could just translate the italian to english. Thanks for your help (talk) 18:56, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi IP - - Yes, you may translate the Italian language Wikipedia article on Roland Habisreutinger to make an English language Wikipedia article on him. However, you must give credit to the Italian Wikipedia editors of that article. You may do it, by leaving an edit-summary that you did copy the contents from Italian language Wikipedia and by placing a template {{translated page}} -on the talk page of English language article, that it is substantially a copy of the Itanlian language Wikipedia article.
However, looking at the Italian language article, it:Roland Habisreutinger, it does not appear to have much contents to copy from. It also does not have multiple reliable sources that'd justisfy the inclusion of Roland Habisreutinger on English Wikipedia. I'll suggest you to first make sure, if he meets the Wikipedia notability guideline and then writing the article from scratch. Cheers! Anupmehra -Let's talk! 14:10, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Cicimau - It appears that you wanted to ask something but forgot to leave us a question. Is it about your draft? If yes, then I'd say, it is declined for reasons given in the 'pink decline box' on top of your draft. If you don't understand any of the reasons given there, please ask us the same and I or someone else here will be happy to explain that to you. Cheers!

Hello Sir, Good day,I am a beginner editor in wikipedia, I'm having problem of renaming my articles. I have already saw all help line like "Moving a page" .But unfortunately i dont see any "move option" in wiki i need a good solution as quickly as possible thanks and best regards -SilentBlitzkreig88 Silentblitzkreig88 (talk) 19:04, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Actually, no, you do not need a good solution as soon as possible. You just need to achieved the status that allows the move option to appear. This requires time to be served and a number of edits to be made. Just improve your draft articles as they are named today and we'll deal with moving them when it is time.

20:16:40, 14 September 2014 review of submission by Bill Daly (Writer)[edit]

I received an email telling me my submission had been rejected, but no reason was given. Could you please tell me what the problem is?

Bill Daly (Writer) (talk) 20:16, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

The reason is on the draft. It shows you why writing an autobiography is a poor idea here. It seems you are not notable in this reviewer's opinion, based upon the paucity of information and lack of references in the draft. By no means all published authors are notable. From the draft I agree with the reviewer. Fiddle Faddle 21:06, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Request on 07:21:44, 15 September 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by Skandaleas[edit]

Hello Matthew Vanitas, I appreciate your time to assist with the WP requirements. I have been studying the procedures, still it seems too difficult to proceed. I will do the best I can within the next few days, perhaps to make it easier so that the name of our company, MWA, Inc. will be launched on WP.

Thanks again.

Skandaleas (talk) 07:21, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Your words tell us that you have a conflict of interest. YOu need to be especially careful over tone and references when drafting this piece. Fiddle Faddle 11:34, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Skandaleas - MatthewVanitas appears to be unavailable at this time. I'll make an attempt to explain the problem(s) with your draft Mykonos Windmills America. First of all, the draft in present shape, doesn't appear to be meeting our notability guideline, which seeks significant coverage in multiple secondary, independent and reliable sources. You should find reliable sources that are independent of your company and discuss the company in some detail, as such coverage in newspapers, magazines, books, journals, reputable online blogs, etc. Failing notability, will make the draft unsuitable for inclusion.
Next, we do only write what already has been written in reliable sources, in our own words retaining the meaning of the original, -in a neutral tone. And, to make it in comliance with Verifiability policy, we do cite same the source(s) after the line, we derived from. Wikipedia referencing for beginners guide may help you to understand, 'how to cite a source'.
Just fix these, and your draft will be eligible for inclusion and may be moved to Wikipedia articles space anytime, thereafter. If your company doesn't the meet the notability guideline at this time, I'll advise you to try again some time later. Anupmehra -Let's talk! 11:56, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Request on 14:35:28, 15 September 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by Gcstrong[edit]

Hi -- I had an article submission declined, and was directed to read comments of the reviewer. HOWEVER, I have been unable to locate the comments -- where do I find/access reviewers comments?

Gcstrong (talk) 14:35, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

16:20:28, 15 September 2014 review of submission by Clr65109[edit]

My article was approved, but now it says that may not meet notability guide lines. I have four sources and its a very short article. Please help! Thanks. The article is called "A Leading Man."

Clr65109 (talk) 16:20, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

The only thing that will ever help an article is more sources. We require references from significant coverage about the entity, and independent of it, and in WP:RS please. See WP:42. As the reviewer who accepted the draft I still believe it to be suitable for the main article space. It seems another editor disagrees. They have a right to do so, and I will not revert their banner addition. Another reviewer or any other editor may or may not choose to do so. As general advice, find more valid references. And yes, I appreciate that may be tough with this article. A useful approach is for you to discuss it with the editor who placed the notice, RightCowLeftCoast.
Such notices indicate a concern, not necessarily a fatal concern, with the article. They tend to be a warning of a potential nomination for deletion, so some work is required. That work need not be performed by you, but I suggest you do it. Fiddle Faddle 19:53, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Greetings, I was notified through Wikipedia that I was mentioned here.
I am an active editor with WikiProject Asian Americans, and stumbled onto this new article due to to addition of a link to this article at multiple articles under the WikiProjects preview. There were various issues with the new content including WP:NOTPROMO, WP:LISTPEOPLE, verifiability using reliable source(s), and WP:PRIMARY.
I am concerned that this article is notable per WP:NFILM
It has not been widely distributed and has "received full-length reviews by two or more nationally known critics".
It is not historically notable.
It has not received a major award of excellence, such as an Oscar.
It has not been preserved in a national archive
it is not "taught" as a subject at an accredited university or college with a notable film program.
The subject of the film is interesting, but as an editor, I cannot take that into account. At this time I am not taking this article to WP:AFD because following the wide release it might meet the first part, so although IMHO this article falls under WP:TOOSOON, I am willing to give it time to mature.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 04:36, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

17:28:34, 15 September 2014 review of submission by DDlb5[edit]

I wanted this to be a draft to work on in my sandbox but it is appearing live on the internet. What do I need to do to fix it? And why did that happen so I don't make the same mistake again?

DDlb5 (talk) 17:28, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Please be more specific about your concern. What do you mean by "Live on the internet"? It is not a WIkipedia article yet; it sits in your sandbox. You use your browser to edit it and others can also see it. If that is the thing that perplexes you it is a normal thing. Fiddle Faddle 19:45, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

I guess I am confused. When I did my first wiki page it was labeled as a draft and I worked on it in my sandbox. I don't remember anyone being able to google it and have it come up before I was finished. This time, I can google the person and my "draft" comes up. I was under the impression it stayed private until I finished or am I just confused on how this works? — Preceding unsigned comment added by DDlb5 (talkcontribs) 21:21, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

@DDlb5: The question is, does it matter? Fiddle Faddle 22:12, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Well, I guess it does to me. I would rather have a complete article that is well written out in the public domain than a draft that isn't finished. Also, how does it keep from someone deleting it since I haven't inserted references yet, etc? — Preceding unsigned comment added by DDlb5 (talkcontribs) 01:08, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

All drafts are publicly visible and also editable by anyone. However, considerable leeway is provided as to what Draft pages can contain, on the understanding that they are intended to become articles at some point in the future. Normally Draft pages are only deleted if they contain particularly serious problems such as copyright violations or personal attacks, or if they have not been edited for six months or more. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 16:44, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
I suspect t might be a foible of the User namespace vs the Draft: namespace, and settings for search engines to index/noindex the namespace. BUt I have no definitive answer. Fiddle Faddle 17:33, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
I have asked knowledgeable folk for a definitive answer. We await with interest. Fiddle Faddle 18:06, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm no expert, but if it is already being indexed, it is difficult to remove from the search engines that are indexing it, until their "crawlers" have re-searched and not found it, which can take several days. If it is entirely your own work, copy-paste the article to a different user-page (I suggest a clearly different title), add {{Noindex}} to the top of the new page, and delete the old page. Unlike moving the page, this leaves no redirect, so anyone using the search-engine link will be led to a blank page. - Arjayay (talk) 19:27, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

18:07:48, 15 September 2014 request for review by Dj1mitchell[edit]

I'm new to this process and I would like to know why my article was declined. I did quite a bit of research on this and believe there are merits to this short, but interesting definition.

Dj1mitchell (talk) 18:07, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

No merits whatsoever in its current from. It lacks any referencing and appears to be an entirely non notable neologism. Please actually look at your draft and you will see the reason there. I wonder where your 'quite a but of research' was performed. There are no Ghits that I can see for your definition. Fiddle Faddle 19:40, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

@Anztechltd: Wikipedia is not for advertising. Your draft lacks appropriate sources to make a claim of notability. Chris Troutman (talk) 02:55, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Please use good sense. Link to the article in the new outlet, not to the main page. We require references from significant coverage about the entity, and independent of it, and in WP:RS please. See WP:42
What is important for ANZ Tech is not important for Wikipedia. We value articles that meet our criteria. We are not your PR vehicle.

My article has been reviewed and denied twice. However, I made significant improvements to the article based on the moderators' feedback and resubmitted it.

Resident502 (talk) 14:44, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

You've not done anything wrong... you are correct that it takes a while for drafts to be re-reviewed. In fact, it can take just as long as for the original review... so up to a month or more, which admittedly is far from ideal. This particular Draft is correctly submitted and awaiting review.

22:23:11, 18 September 2014 review of submission by RodeishaV[edit]

Hi, I recently submitted my first article, and I had not quite finished the links. It did unfortunately look like advertising, I think because I had not finished the links. But I may also have used the wrong angle on the story, it may have been more appropriate to simply write the article about the company Insight Consulting, and include courses underneath that.

Link to the deleted article



I would like to try again, with more external links, can I do this without losing my account etc? Is it better to do it from the perspective of the company name Insight Consultancy Solutions Inc.? As in the style of this competitor [[2]]

I am writing as someone who has attended the courses and also watched this firm for a long time, and I think they should be up there because they are bringing something new and fresh to the field of management consultancy. FYI I now have about 6 external links of articles by the founder, although they are not necessarily on the courses.

My main concern is that I do not want to be deleted as a user because I am doing the wrong thing. I really appreciate wikipedia and what it does. It is a great service. I have a background in journalism, and really find it useful, so do not want to jeopardize your quality at all. Thanks RodeishaV RodeishaV (talk) 22:23, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

You need to determine whether the org passes WP:CORP, and to write about the org. You do this by seeking references that pass WP:42 and considering whether it has notability. If it has, go ahead and write a neutral draft, with full referencing, and do not submit it until you believe it is as ready as you can make it without feedback. It is the act of submitting it that exposes it to scrutiny (broadly, at least).
You would be advised, instead of plunging in, to consider many other unrelated articles first. Look for articles that meet WP:GA. What makes them good articles? How close can you get with a putative draft. Analyse them, read their talk pages. Bring those discussions to bear on what you hope to do. Fiddle Faddle 08:11, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Horse Attack Mark (talk) 10:42, 19 September 2014 (UTC) Page Name = Draft:Richard Pick (musician)

I am just trying to confirm the status of my draft - I believe that it is now corrected and up for review. If this is the case then I will be patient and await further input from the reviewer.

1. I am trying to fix an error at wikipedia that links the name 'Richard Pick' to an incorrect page that discusses another person named 'Dick Pick' and an operating system that this man invented.

2. After a few inputs from reviewers to my draft I believe that I have made the corrections requested.

Just want to CONFIRM that the torch is passed to wikipedia and is now in Wikipedia's reviewing process

Please do not attempt to fix this alleged error. Any attempt to fix it is likely to be reverted (0.9 probability). It is not an error at all. You need to learn about Disambiguation Pages. This is why your draft has (musician) after it. Dick Pick is a very well known gentleman in IT circles.
You have not yet resubmitted this for review, but it will fail at present. It requires substantial sources. Please see WP:42. You have been advised twice previously to find good references, please actually do this. The current one is a Primary Source. WP:PRIMARY allows them to be used in very restricted circumstances. There is nothing to prevent you from resubmitting that and finding sources at the same time. Fiddle Faddle 12:46, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
I have left a substantial comment on the draft about the content and referencing. Fiddle Faddle 12:55, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
