Request on 10:31:36, 29 August 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by 77.42.137.202[edit]


I added an article about the civic influence hub in Lebanon. It is a registered lobby group in Lebanon that is working on socio-economic change. The article was reviewed and declined. I need to know the reason and how we can fix it.

Thank you.

Jena fuller (talk) 17:29, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi I've written a band page and I tried to link to a youtube video but I got a blacklisted link notice. I wonder if that crosses the line from encyclopedia to promotion? I don't see youtubes on other band pages here. I saw a whitelist option for links but I don't want to do anything that might hinder my article's acceptance (the wait is long enough!) so I thought best to ask before I do anything else.

Second question is, I see wiki pages that have a "Contents" box on them. My draft doesn't, so is that something I need to generate or does that occur upon it going from draft to article?

Thank youJena fuller (talk) 17:29, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Youtube is a problem because so many of the videos on it are breaches of copyright. It is deemed inappropriate to link to such a breach. Many other youtube videos are promotional and unreliable sources. You can see why we avoid it! There are ways of linking to youtube. See {{youtube}} for details. It is usually only deployed in an External links section.
Contents is autogenerated when an article exceeds a certain number of sections. I suggest you ignore it and be pleasantly surprised when it happens. One can fiddle with it,but I suggest you do not. To find out how it all works I suggest you use your sandbox to play. Fiddle Faddle 18:43, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

17:33:17, 29 August 2014 review of submission by Bragdonite[edit]


I need to understand specifically why my article in Arthur Dyson is declined. I have not yet mounted the images, but I am getting copyright clearance on those even as I write this to you. Please tell me precisely why this Wikipedia essay, which took me four months to write, does not qualify for publication on your web site. What error? What lack? Every citation is accurate, and there is a diversity of sources. Arthur Dyson is one of the most accomplished living architects in the organic architecture tradition, and has no representation on Wikipedia.

It is inconceivable to me that that there is any informational basis for this article to be declined. I am a respected architectural historian published in five languages, with over 100 articles, two book essays, and a monograph to my credit. For 35 years I have been considered a national authority on organic architecture. I observed the thicket of rules and guidelines.

Thank you for your time.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rover.com was flagged as an orphan so I updated the referral links. My question now is - how long does it take for the orphan notification to go away? Is there anything else I need to do on my end?

Thanks so much.

August 30[edit]

08:35:40, 30 August 2014 review of submission by Skadge[edit]

Hello, we (~5 researchers from 5 different research project) have been working on an article to compare (academic) robotic simulators.

I appreciate that Wikipedia policies regarding 'original research' require published sources. Most (if not all) of the projects referenced on the page have academic publications attached to them, but those publications give technical overviews that are not sufficient to provide accurate technical comparisons. Hence the reference to websites. Would it be sufficient to add references to the academic publications in the first table (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Comparison_of_Robotic_Simulators#General_informations) to prevent the WP:OR flag?

[Please also take into consideration that the current article discussing simulation in robotics Robotics_simulator is just a list of links to websites, with no order (except the one the respective authors of the softwares decide to set, ie, theirs first), no comparison, and many outdated/obsolete references. I believe our proposal for a more systematic comparison represent a notable improvement.]

Thanks for your help Skadge (talk) 08:35, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

References to academic papers (for example) can pose problems. Broadly, unless the paper has been peer reviewed, or published in a WP:RS, it is a primary source. Primary sources may be used in a restricted set of circumstances, and a consensus may need to be reached on their deployment in this case (if you choose to deploy them). THe objective, yours and ours, is to achieve an authoritative record of the material that is published elsewhere, not to create new research, nor to synthesise new research from existing material.
Others here will know the various Wikiprojects to contact for advice. My suggestion is to open a set of discussions on the talk page of the draft to show your thinking, and to reach relevant consensus on any areas of doubt, inviting the WIkiproject(s) to help and comment.
The draft as a whole has excellent potential. I am sure you don't need to be told that. The world of academe is very different from Wikipedia. Reading WP:ACADEME will; indicate how different.
Our role as reviewers is to seek to ensure that an article will not immediately be subject to one of our deletion processes when it is accepted. That is why we push it back to the author. We want to accept articles. I would love to have accepted this one at once when I reviewed it, but I viewed it as needing reference polish. Fiddle Faddle 08:43, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick feedback. Still, I do not understand why a page that compare readily available softwares (1000th of similar software comparison pages exist -- and are useful -- in a variety of domains on wikipedia) suddenly lead to WP:OR issues. I mean, the page only compare features of these softwares. It does not try to synthesise research/review approaches, etc. Skadge (talk) 08:50, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
@Skadge: The other pages you mention may or may not be poor pages. The issue we have is that no page here may set a precedent for any other page. If we allowed that then the standards would decline rapidly and we would head faster and faster towards Idiocracy. Wikipedia has a great many pages that are below the standards we strive for. It is valid to flag any that you find for improvement, perhaps even deletion. Any editor may do this and should do this. A comparison page that is not referenced may, in extreme circumstances, be seen to utter a libel. This is something we wish to avoid.
I am aware of your good motives in creating a decent, clean, and correct comparison page. I'm equally sure you wish it to be of the highest quality. Excellence in referencing achieves this best. Fiddle Faddle 08:59, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
@Timtrent: I understand your answer. I'm fine with discussing on the Talk page of the Draft how to reach the wikipedia standards, but I have to admit that I do not yet understand what you are looking for/expecting. How would you build a reliable (and simply *factual*) comparison of publicly available softwares if neither references to the projects' websites or academic publications are not suitable? Skadge (talk) 10:00, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
@Skadge: If you re-read both what I have said, which is an interpretation, and then study policies and guidelines, which are chapter and verse, I hope you will see that there are carefully regulated circumstances in which both types of less reliable verification may be used. The thing you are creating as an article is one of the hardest to source. This is why I am asking for excellent standards and great care. What we all look for is diligence in finding and deploying sources which are independent of the item, are significant coverage of it, and are in WP:RS. Once those are in place less reliable sources can be used to backfill verification that one can only get from, for example, a primary source. Fiddle Faddle 12:13, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Because this conversation has direct relevance to the draft and the subsequent approved article, I am copying eveything above here, including the title, to Draft talk:Comparison of Robotic Simulators. My strong suggestion is that further discussion should take place there. Fiddle Faddle 15:23, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

18:38:15, 31 August 2014 review of submission by Sparkoparkes[edit]


I have been struggling to insert two photographs into my first article, entitled: Walsall Lithographic Co. Ltd., in my Sandbox. Having spent a couple of hours and re-doing them several times, I finally managed to upload them into Wikimedia Commons, then had a bad time trying to insert them into my article with my own, proper captions, instead of the rather stilted, awkward captions I had to give them at the Uploading process. Try as I might, however, I could not get them to appear in the Preview of my article at all, much less get them to appear as I wanted them to appear, in a box down the right-hand-side. There is nowhere I could find any help or instructions how to do that, which is VERY frustrating! My latest draft, which has now been submitted for Review, only has the edited, written lines for the two photographs at the bottom of it, so I have no idea whether or not they will be included in the final page, if it passes review. Sparkoparkes (talk) 18:38, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Sparkoparkes. I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to do with the pictures, but the basics can be found in the picture tutorial.
With that being said, though, I don't think your article will be accepted, with or without pictures. There are absolutely no outside sources cited for the information. Wikipedia needs sources. Anon126 (notify me of responses! / talk / contribs) 18:46, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
@Sparkoparkes: I moved your draft to Draft:Walsall Lithographic Company, so you can use your sandbox for something else. I subsequently declined it, as it had no sources. Chris Troutman (talk) 00:05, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

09:00:07, 1 September 2014 review of submission by Hamik.m[edit]

Dear reviewers. Once again addressing to you asking to review our article when you have time. The question is that the painter the the article is about, will be having one of his works presented at the Phillips Auction. This is a very important event in the life of a painter, and there will be lots of people trying to wiki him. I have edited and removed all the text that other reviewers considered ad-like. Now the article consist of purely biographical facts and 4 citations from respected 3rd party art magazines, as well as Daily Mail and La Reppublica.

One more question was that my last reviewer considered that the painter does not pass the notability criteria. I would like to disagree with that, and the best proof for the painters notability is actually the expert committee of the Philips auction where the painter is going to be present at lot #222 (the link is in the article). Phillips is one of the oldest auction houses, established in 1726 and trying to rival with Christie's and Sotheby's so the experts there are top ranked.

Please review the article ASAP to be able to get online before the auction.

Thank you very much in advance. Hamik.m (talk) 09:00, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

How do i get my submission approved?[edit]

Hi

We are the makers of a portal called www.tfod.in - The Future Of Design. The basic information about the portal was submitted by me for your approval. The submission is not an advertisement. It is information about the portal, created for the art, architecture and design fraternity. Please guide me what changes in the text can help me get approval.

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Roopasabnispinge (talkcontribs) 09:05, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

There is nothing at Draft:The Future Of Design and no deleted page at The Future Of Design, nor has your account edited any other pages that I can see. So I can't offer any comments on your submission, not having seen it.
Some useful pages related to this topic that you could read include Wikipedia:Conflict of interest, Wikipedia:NOTDIR, Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 09:18, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

QUESTION[edit]

I recently had an article accepted, entitled Handwashing in Judaism. When I go to my Sandbox, I still see the article there, just as it would appear on WP Article Space. My question to you is that if I delete my Sandbox article (which appears exactly as it appears on WP Article Space) will it be deleted from WP Article Space too? In short, my question is "How do I clear my Sandbox without affecting my article in the Wikipedia Article Space?"Davidbena (talk) 15:23, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

If it can't be made could one of your editors look into it and may be write a page about it as it has being on a number of papers in Ireland and abroad.

I wonder why you have not actually looked at the reviewer's comment on the draft? It tells you all you need to know. We require references from significant coverage about the entity, and independent of it, and in WP:RS please. See WP:42. This has none. Fiddle Faddle 11:13, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/The Cure Parkinson's Trust[edit]


FIRST TELL US WHY YOU ARE REQUESTING HELP ON THE LINE BELOW THIS LINE. Take as many lines as you need. -->}}

I have included what I had hoped was a correct citation to a medical journal - I used the Cite reference to 'journal' and entered all relevant details. The small text appears by the side of the report referred to in the text as the correct medical journal name but when clicked does not redirect the user to the said journal - please can you tell me what i am doing wrong?

Also, I have included special characters for URL's in my text but these appear in the saved article as the full URL - is there a way of this appearing as a smaller icon in the text - again what am I doing wrong here please :(

BaileyBoo (talk) 11:47, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello BaileyBoo. The single reference on the draft Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/The Cure Parkinson's Trust seems to work fine; if I click on the doi number I am taken to a webpage about the "Motor and Cognitive Advantages..." paper, and if I click on the pubmed number, I am taken to a different webpage about the "Motor and Cognitive Advantages..." paper. Was this a problem that you've already resolved? Or maybe it was fixed with this edit. Incidentally, neither page appear to mention the organisation your draft is about, so the reference may not be very useful for proving the notability of your topic under Wikipedia's requirements Wikipedia:VRS.
I cannot see any special characters in URLs in your text. I note that some external links have been removed from your body text by another editor. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 06:25, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

19:12:08, 2 September 2014 review of draft by Catoec[edit]


Hello! I am having the hardest time with the infobox on the page I am working on. No matter how much I have messed with it when I click "Show Preview" its showing up still in HTML mode. Is preview capable of showing it as an infobox vs HTML text? If yes, could someone see why mine is not formatting? I have looked through the help desk and mostly it was suggesting the parameters might not be right, but I have checked these several times. Any help would be appreciated!

Can you explain further about the "two too many left square brackets"? I can't find which ones need to be taken out. I took out the ones at the very beginning but that didn't change it at all...

@Catoec: I already fixed it as seen here. They were before "file" when you're calling for the logo image. Thumbnails of images only have two square brackets before and two after. You had four before. Chris Troutman (talk) 01:06, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

11:04:02, 3 September 2014 review of submission by George.wyngaardt[edit]


Hi,

I have been trying to create a page on a South African company called Santam, I find it unbelievable that Wikipedia has information on smaller companies based overseas but yet it refuses to accept information on a large and proudly South African company. The following editor (JamesBWatson )has deleted by previous submissions deeming it as Unambiguous advertising which I believe is completely inaccurate. Initially I was unfamiliar with Wikipedia submission guidelines however after several hours of research, I now understand how to submit credible, unbiased yet useful information.

My latest submission has been stripped down to just facts, there are however a few interesting facts that I had to leave out due to my concerns regarding what the previous editor flagged as being "promotional content". https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Draft:Santam&oldid=623991857

Please forgive my frustration, it's just that I see some level of inconsistency here. Sanlam was able to create a Wikipedia page but when you look at the context of the submission it seems a bit unjust that this information was given the go ahead. I understand that you are not obligated to accepted any of our submissions but please consider the nature of the above mentioned submission without quickly going through a "speed deletion" process.


Regards, George

The best place to start would be to click the links in the rejection reason provided at Draft:Brian P. Katz to see what is required for a new Wikipedia article. Then possibly you could start a draft on a topic that meets the requirements, if your existing topic does not.

To Ecsayer: Much of the "Partner Products" section is copied from a press release. You might think that simply removing it would fix it, but the content is still in the page history, and that is still not allowed. If the text were copied recently, we could simply delete the versions that have a copyright violation, while leaving the article intact. However, this text was added very early on, so almost all the versions have it. So, the best option is to simply delete the entire article and start over.

To Imainfp: The logs indicate that it was copied from here. (Only an administrator can verify if this is correct, but I will assume it is.) Even if you wrote that biography, it is not acceptable currently because 1) we cannot verify that you did, and 2) it needs to be made available under a free license.

I will answer question 4. You can see all your edits made on this project (English Wikipedia) by clicking "Contributions" at the very top of the page. The only exceptions are edits that have been deleted, or edits when you were not logged into the Swmusic account.
I will try question 3 as well. The best way to add a photo is to take the photo yourself with your own camera (therefore you will own the copyright to it), and then upload it to The Wikimedia Commons project, providing that you are willing to release the photo under a free license. The advantage of uploading it to Wikimedia Commons is that it could then be used in all different language Wikipedias as well as just the English Wikipedia.

01:39:17, 5 September 2014 review of submission by Quejay[edit]

My article about French author François Leprieur was rejected on the basis of the subject's lack of notability and a lack of independent, third-party references. I am not asking for a re-review but rather seeking suggestions for addressing these issues.

Leprieur is not a prominent figure. He has written two authorative books, though, about an important movement in France in the 1950s (the worker-priest movement). I thought that an article about an authority on the worker-priest movement would be of interest to some readers.

With respect to references, I wasn't able to find much information other than the sources I cited. I do not dispute the reviewer's comment that my sources consist of author and book pages on publishers' and e-commerce websites. If more information is available on the Web about Leprieur, though, I haven't been able to find it. I thought that if the article were published, someone who has access to more information might be able to add it.

Thank you for any guidance you may be able to provide. Quejay (talk) 01:39, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

By whom is he regarded as an authority on the movement?
Be aware that sources do not have to be online on the web to be useable for proving notability. If his most important work was published in 1989 and was only of interest for a narrow historical or perhaps theological field, then it's unsurprising there may not be reviews by reliable sources that can be found with Google. But it is still possible that reviews did appear at the time. If some independent reliable reviews of both books can be found, then this should suffice to prove notability.

Hello, it looks like Draft:Reggae Rajahs was deleted because it copied large amounts of text directly from the website mentioned at that page (the deletion reason includes the website it was apparently copied from). Because all content on Wikipedia is permitted to be re-used even for commercial purposes, we absolutely cannot have material copied from other websites except where the material explicitly has a license that allows this. Some ways to arrange that are mentioned at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials, but in many cases it is better simply to re-write the material in your own words.

Question 1: I practiced writing my first article in my sandbox. Once i clicked "Save Page" and confirmed that I wanted to submit it as an article, I received the confirmation "Review waiting" and a warning that said: "Warning: This page should probably be moved, but a page already exists at Draft:Sandbox." Below this was a button that said, "Move to Draft space."

I'm not sure what this means. Does my article exist only in my personal sandbox? What is the "Draft space" and how is it different from my personal sandbox? Ultimately, it is my goal to have my article appear in Wikipedia and I'm not sure if there is anything else on my part that I must do now that it is pending a review.

Question 2: I would like to add a photo to my article but I'm not sure if I have to wait for it to be approved before I can do that.

@Bacimituti: I moved your draft from your personal sandbox to Draft:Francesco Lo Castro where it can be reviewed. You've already submitted your draft for review so now it's just a matter of time. The message you saw only indicated that there's already content at Draft:Sandbox. I recommend that you remove the external links from the body of the article and cut the numerous quotes in the "Press & Reviews" section as it is not of encyclopedic tone. Wikipedia is not here to advertise so the more boring the draft reads, the more likely it will be accepted. Also, I don't think All About Jazz is a reliable source so I would remove all content that relies on it. Finally, like many in your industry you've incorporated a lot of name-dropping. This cognitive bias will not make the case for notability.

The reviewer responded that I'd included something that violated copyright, however the offending item was simply the URL of a public website so I don't understand the problem.

Also, it appears that the article was deleted very soon after the review, which pains me greatly. I spent several hours to-ing and fro-ing with the client in order to get it to the point it was at, and if I can't get it back then it means I have to go through the whole painful process again from scratch.

While I understand that you can't host anything that breaks copyright, it's pretty brutal to remove it entirely without even saving a copy that I could fix. Is there any way that I can get back what I had and make the necessary changes?

You have infringed copyright at http://www.nsw.ipaa.org.au/events/2012/ipaa-regional-conference-2012 How would you like it if it were your own copyright that had been infringed? We protect copyright vigorously by deleting offending material on sight, and tend not to pass the material that broke copyright to anyone at all. The deleting admin may hold a different view and you should ask them. Please see WP:COPYRIGHTS. I note that you have a client. This also tells me that you have a conflict of interest. Wikipedia may not be used for promotional purposes, and paid editing is deprecated. It takes a very skilled editor to be able to handle such matters. You would do well to take advice from one such as CorporateM who knows with precision how to handle this. Fiddle Faddle 09:44, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
@John.A.McKee Since the article has been deleted, I can't see it and therefore cannot provide any advice. However if you can email me a copy I might be able to help. It should be noted that contributing to Wikipedia with a conflict of interest is very strongly discouraged, because often your client's objectives are often counter to Wikipedia's rules (for example they may want an article, whereas Wikipedia's rules may suggest that none should exist). Therefore my default advice is not to waste any more of your time on this, but I find in about 25% of cases someone in your position can be helped in a way that benefits Wikipedia. I'd have to see the article to suggest which circumstance this particular case may fall under. CorporateM (Talk) 12:34, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

04:25:17, 9 September 2014 review of submission by Emerdog[edit]


Emerdog (talk) 04:25, 9 September 2014 (UTC)


I just finished my first Wikipedia article, USS PC-598, drafted on my user sandbox page. Although I am a registered user, I followed the directions on the page and submitted it for review my clicking the link on the page, rather than activating it myself. A reviewer was nice enough to activate the article for me today. I have two questions:

1 - I seem to have lost the use of my sandbox. If I click the Sandbox tab on my user page I am redirected to the article, USS PC-598. I can no longer access my sandbox (User:Emerdog/sandbox.) I would like my sandbox back but cannot figure how to correct this problem.

2 - The article was rated Start-Class, with which I am okay. However, the main fault for that category of the rubric is a lack of reliable references. The bulk of the information is taken from original source documents - the Administrative Diaries, Operational Remarks, Log Books and War Diaries for the ship from 1943, 1944 and 1945. I have copies of all of these documents and have shown them as Sources on the page. For information not taken from these source documents, I have 40 additional footnotes. Should I be footnoting each sentence or each paragraph of the article to specific days from the Logs or Diaries, such as this?[1]

Please advise.

Thank you for your help.

@Emerdog: I have removed the redirect from your sandbox. Whenever you encounter a redirect, the small title of the original page is found under the title of the article. That way you can return to the redirected page and edit it as needed.

04:36:28, 9 September 2014 review of submission by John.A.McKee[edit]


Hi again. WRT my earlier question on September 8 I have some follow-up questions. Please excuse my ignorance on this but it's the first article I've attempted to put on Wikipedia and I'm still finding my way.

First, I don't understand how I've infringed copyright by linking to http://www.nsw.ipaa.org.au/events/2012/ipaa-regional-conference-2012. It's a public website and there are plenty of other public websites to which Wikipedia links, so I'm at a loss to understand the problem. Can you explain this for me?

Second, I'm not exactly doing paid editing. A customer of mine wants a Wikepedia page set up to provide information about him and technically he's not able to do it. He has created the content and employed me to simply input that content for him. Is that in contravention of the rules?

Finally, is there no way I can get back the content I already entered? I didn't realise you guys would erase it if the draft was rejected so I don't have a backup.

Thanks

John.A.McKee (talk) 04:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

@John.A.McKee: Timtrent already replied to you that you had copied content wholesale, not simply included the URL. We will not restore the deleted copyright violation and this point isn't worth arguing over. If you refer to someone as "the client" you likely are not an objective contributor; we're still willing to allow you to contribute through this project, anyway. Be advised that as the editor involved, it is your responsibility to ensure that content meets our standards. You can't simply paste in a document someone else gave you.
I recommend you read our guidance on writing your first article. Our "referencing for beginners" is also helpful. Chris Troutman (talk) 05:24, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
@John.A.McKee: If your customer has created the content I do not understand why you do not have it. If your customer has copied a site wholesale, then, really, that is your customer's tough luck. They should know better. Show them this correspondence. If all they have done is passed you the content because you are capable of making the input they can pass it again and you can see where the copyright infringement is. Nothing is ever deleted for linking to a site. It is deleted on sight if it infringes that site's copyright. To undelete it, even briefly, is a further copyright infringement. Ask the deleting admin with pleasure. You will find their details at the deleted draft, and they may have a different view.
Copyright infringement is not just a lack of politeness, it is theft of intellectual property. BY deleting this draft we have not only protected the owner, but protected you. Fiddle Faddle 06:17, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

@Ravi Paliya: Sure it is. Earwig's tool tells me that there's a 94% chance you copied the information word-for-word from veda.wikidot.com, which itself was probably translated from hindupurohitsangh.in. If this content belongs to your institution, you will need to donate that content to Wikipedia. However, it appears that you're trying to advertise and that's not permitted.

Emc25 (talk) 22:25, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

"Among others" and "among many others" and similar phrasing are both unnecessary, and also promotional phrasing. Remove anything like that. You may wish to improve the formatting of your references. Take a look at some Wikipedia:Good Articles and see how proper references are formatted... not just the hyperlinked name of the source article.
You have a paragraph "...she attended the indigenous peoples global summit ... The summit enabled indigenous peoples from all regions of the globe to exchange their knowledge and experience in adapting to the impacts of climate change and to develop key messages and recommendations to assist Indigenous Peoples in their global negotiations on climate change". This paragraph is entirely unsourced, horribly repetitive, promotional, and really adds nothing to encyclopedic knowledge about Tryon. So for example I attended Wikimania 2014 (and helped to run it, in a small way), but that fact is really not something that needs to be noted in an encyclopedia, nor would it contribute to my being notable enough for a Wikipedia article (which I am not).
Focusing on secondary, independent sources, and removing some material not supported by such sources, may also help to make the case for Tryon's notability clearer. As a tour guide, lecturer, conference attendee and non-profit founder, her notability is not totally clear to me. It could go either way. Good luck!

Our role as reviewers is to seek to ensure that an article will not immediately be subject to one of our deletion processes when it is accepted. That is why we push it back to the author. We want to accept articles. Create > Submit >Review > Edit > Resubmit is intended to be an iterative process. IT is not that you get caught on something, it is that the edits that you make reveal another facet that needs to be polished.
There are no numbers to call, no email to check. You need to work on the draft, resubmit it, and await the review.
I have, by the way, filled in the details of the editor who declined the draft most recentluy. Their review is correct and the tone needs to be altered to be flatter. Fiddle Faddle 08:27, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

If you go to the page Draft:Kill Yourself Save the Planet, Islamic perspective you can see that it was deleted as an unambiguous copyright infringement of an external website. This is because it copied material that may be copyrighted from the external website. All material on Wikipedia must be freely licensed, so such copying is not acceptable. If you own the material on the website and wish to freely license it, Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials explains how to do so. But often, it is better to write it in your own words instead, in a neutral encyclopedic style and supported by independent reliable sources as described in Wikipedia:VRS.

Instead of submitting the page as a draft, you appear to have created it directly as a published article. This has thrown up problems because your newly created article does not have references to independent reliable sources ... for example reviews of Bhabha's books in major newspapers or established literary magazines ... to prove Bhabha's notability by Wikipedia's standards. Wikipedia:VRS has more information about this.
Perhaps you should move the information about Bhabha back to your sandbox at User:Nadeembahoo/sandbox and submit it from there only when it is ready. Alternatively, if you can fix the problems with the existing article Nadeem Bhabha within a few days, then that should also work. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 15:57, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

69.71.193.130 (talk) 17:34, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

As an encyclopedia, Wikipedia does not have first hand information. Unfortunately this might mean that your draft is unlikely to be suitable as a Wikipedia article. However, if this television drama receives significant coverage in independent reliable sources... perhaps such as reviews of it in major newspapers or established entertainment magazines or established entertainment websites, then adding such sources as references may suffice to prove its notability.

If the synopsis you have written is published in WP:RS that will give some weight to its inclusion. If you are a journalist and review the topic in a significant manner and it is published in one or more outlets that qualify for WP:42 that is infinitely better. Even if you are a well known public figure writing anonymously here and you unmask yourself as that figure it remains as original research.

I want to learn more about the wiki pages and how to contribute the nationality or a community along with the authors profile. Need more help on making contents table and uploading the authors pictures. Can some one send me the link of tutorial and easy learning process. Thank you

Hello Jndahall12, please try Wikipedia:CHEATSHEET and Wikipedia:Your first article. In particular, the contents table is created automatically when you have sufficient section headings added via the process described in the cheatsheet. Wikipedia:VRS may also be useful.

20:48:06, 11 September 2014 review of submission by Akira Urumuri[edit]


Makanyaga, Abdoul is the icon of Rwandan music since the 1970s, as Rwanda is developing rapidly there is a growing movement to introduce the outside world to its cultural figures. First on this list must be Makanyaga, and considering he is embarking on a unique music project with The Sun Kings band to create awareness of the need for solar energy in order to alleviate energy poverty in Rwanda, now is the right time for his profile to be raised on the worldwide web. There is little information about Makanyaga's life and career, and he is not internet savvy himself. As his current manager I have taken it upon me to elevate him and create more awareness outside of his home country. Best regards, Neil Goodwin.

@Akira Urumuri: Symbol declined.svg Declined Without independent reliable sources, there's no evidence that this musician is notable. You need to add in-line citations. This draft also reads promotionally. Wikipedia is not here for advertising. Chris Troutman (talk) 21:44, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps printed newspapers or printed lifestyle or entertainment magazines in Rwanda have written in detail about Makanyaga or reviewed his performances or recordings in detail. If so, these would be entirely acceptable as sources, even if not written in English. Sources can be online on the internet, but they can also be offline as printed sources. Both are good.

I received a review saying "This submission's references do not adequately evidence the subject's notability—see the general guideline on notability and the golden rule. Please improve the submission's referencing, so that the information is verifiable, and there is clear evidence of why the subject is notable and worthy of inclusion in an encyclopedia."

I have a bunch of notable references throughout my article. I was wondering if there was anything specific that anyone see's that is causing this article to not get published.

Thanks! Teepurk (talk) 16:53, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

@Teepurk: Complex magazine looks like your best reference, which doesn't say much. The issue (as the reviewer explained on the draft) is that the citations aren't about Prime Cut. Most of your "citations" are music videos with the tiniest intimation that Prime Cut had some role in directing the video. You need to have articles in periodicals about Prime Cut.

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)

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

24.36.180.158 (talk) 18:56, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi IP -24.36.180.158 - 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)

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 page.so 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)
