Thank you for your recent submission to Articles for Creation. Your article submission has been reviewed. Unfortunately, it has not been accepted at this time.

Hello and thanks for following up with me at my talk page about your article. You clearly didn't understand why I declined your article and rather than assume that I declined it in bad faith, you could have simply asked for a further explanation.

The problem is not that subject is not notable, the problem is (as indicated in the comments I left for you, that your references did not provide sufficient evidence of notability. If you read the help pages, there is nothing inconsistent about the requirement that sources must be published, independent and reliable so that readers can verify the information in your article. If this were not the case, anyone could write whatever they wanted about another person and there would be no way that the reader could verify the facts in the article. Wikipedia would rapidly become a tabloid and not an encyclopedia. Please also review wikipedia's guidelines on verifiability and referencing for beginners.

I encourage you to keep working on your article by adding actual references to it and resubmitting it for review when you have done so. If I can be of any further assistance to help you improve the article, please get in touch at my talkpage.

Just one further note, it seems you are using several different computers and not signing your posts as requested so it took quite a while to find this page in order to leave a message. Please remember to sign your posts on talk pages - I left instructions for you and several other useful links in a welcome message. Please take a few minutes and puruse some of the information contained at those links because it will make your wikipedia experience a lot easier, more enjoyable and less frustrating.
