Sources and notability[edit]

I requested edit access to The Thundermans page to link to Kira's page here.

I am unsure what the first issue seems to be. Is it that all bare URLs were cited within the first sentence?

I believe the article of her is notable, and I've done well so far to assure it remains that way and improves as more sources are available. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BirthOfJesus (talkcontribs) 21:49, January 18, 2014‎ (UTC)

The problem here is not so much the number of sources you added or the bare url, but their quality. They're either not reliable sources like Youtube and IMDB, or they qualify as primary sources like interviews and newsfeeds. What we need to demonstrate notability is in-depth coverage by secondary sources, i.e. reliable sources that are independent of the article's subject like nation-wide newspapers and magazine or TV channels.
Additionally this is really short stub article of one line while proper biographical articles should ideally contain more information about the person's professional background like training, past roles in notable series or movies, etc. As it stands, the current article should rather be redirected to The Thundermans.

I don't agree with you. IMDb is a good reference for her filmography and career works. I gave at least one decent source from Sun Sentinel, which is a good source. Are you saying that a source must be nationwide? I have personally come across many pages on her that do not have national sources, yet they are never suggested to be deleted. As it stands the evidence is showing at some degree that she is notable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:19, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
Links were added from The Thundermans to this page, so the orphan notification shall be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BirthOfJesus (talkcontribs) 21:21, 21 January 2014 (UTC)


That picture of her has such terrible quality that it'd be better to not have a photo. I suggest removing it and getting a better resolution one, or leave none for now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:45, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

COI article tag[edit]

This article was tagged with a {{COI}} tag back in September 2015. Does anyone know anything more about this? Was it a registered account, or one more more IPs that seemed to have a COI? I'd like more information about this to determine if it's still an ongoing problem. Pinging as the editor who originally added the tag to this article.

P.S. I agree with the post above that sources used for this article are of very low quality – I'll try to get back to this article soon in an attempt to remedy that... --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:37, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

OK, sourcing has now been improved. (Still waiting to hear back on the COI tag...) --IJBall (contribstalk) 04:43, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
I've removed the COI tag as whoever it was doesn't seem to have came back .... –Davey2010Talk 21:09, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Kira Kosarin's Jewish Evidence[edit]

My reference do explicitely support that, because she holds menorah on the photo and because she attended Jewish preschool. That's obvious and accurate evidence, ethnic in nature. Also read here: And listen to this: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:35, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

An implication based on attendance at a school to conclude a religious belief or ethnic background is insufficient. That is original research and WP:SYNTHESIS. You are likely familiar with Jews and recognize behavior patterns and your evaluation of the evidence is likely correct. However we need a much more explicit statement from her or reliable source that makes an explicit statement for a Wikipedia article. See also Who is a Jew? and WP:BLPCAT - "Categories regarding religious beliefs (or lack of such) or sexual orientation should not be used unless the subject has publicly self-identified with the belief or orientation in question, and the subject's beliefs or sexual orientation are relevant to their public life or notability, according to reliable published sources.". More at Wikipedia:Categorization/Ethnicity, gender, religion and sexuality. Geraldo Perez (talk) 14:42, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
Totally agree. For something like this, you'd need an interview where she explicitly says "I am Jewish." Anything short of that, and it should not be in the article... --IJBall (contribstalk) 16:41, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
