Removal from AFC Participants[edit]

Hi I noticed that you removed me from the list of participants for AFC. I have over 500 edits. Would you be able to explain?Mozzie (talk) 10:46, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

To participate in reviewing Articles for Creation submissions you require at least 500 edits to articles, as is clearly explained in the Edit Notice when you try to add yourself to the list of Participants. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 10:55, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Draft: Doppler Studios[edit]

Hi User:Arthur goes shopping; thanks for reviewing my article submission. As per your suggestion, I've updated the copy to remove any remaining non-neutral language that I found, so hopefully it is now sufficiently neutral. However, you also indicated that I used too many references that were "produced by the creator of the subject being discussed", but none of the sources I referred to were produced by Doppler (or by myself, if that is what you meant), or have any connection to Doppler or myself other than the fact that some are recording industry-specific websites and Doppler is a studio operating in the recording industry. Five of the sources are established music or recording industry publications that discuss the particulars of the recording (or music) industry business, and to have so many mentions of Doppler over so many years (earliest one is 1995, and the most recent industry-publication article about Doppler is from 2013) seems to me like an indicator of notability, but perhaps I am misunderstanding either your statement or the Wikipedia rules...if so, I apologize, and please let me know. Or if you can let me know which of the listed sources you feel are inadequate, that would be appreciated; there are a couple of sources that could be considered questionable, but they seem to me to meet the criteria listed under "Self-published and questionable sources as sources on themselves" in the Sources section, based on their context.

It seems like that is all I should have to worry about to get this article accepted, so I am anxious to get them addressed, and your assistance is appreciated.

Thanks again, and I'll look forward to more info from you...Drgonzo 1972 (talk) 18:06, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello Drgonzo, sorry for the long delay in replying to your post here. It's best to start a New Section when making a new comment on a user talk page, as posting things at the top of the page tends to get missed. Anyway. Draft:Doppler Studios still seems to have lots of long lists of things that have been produced that happened to use the studio's facilities, without (mostly) any independent sources explaining why a particular production's use of the facilities was significant. It also still has some material like mentioning that equipment can be easily moved from room to room... this sounds like explaining the advantages of the studio to potential customers, instead of encyclopedic content like significant aspects of the studio's history or design that have been commented on by independent sources.
Regardless, unless you have the patience of very slow-moving glacier, it would probably be best to resubmit the draft so that it can get the eyes of a new reviewer in a week or two, rather than waiting for responses from me that may or may not solve the problem. The paragraph above is my suggestion as to some remaining issues, but who knows, maybe another reviewer will view it differently. It's possible to resubmit and then fix the issues I mention, or the other way round, or just resubmit now that you've made the changes you already mentioned. Either way, re-submitting is something that needs to happen. Good luck! Arthur goes shopping (talk) 22:35, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Can you help me understand the inline citations I need?[edit]

Arthur goes shopping: You declined my submission Draft:F.Scott Yeager in June because it did not meet Wikipedia's standard for inline citations. I included those sources I could find. Can you help me understand what material lacks inline citations? And perhaps guide me to a solution that would lead to approval? Thank you for your time. 00:56, 29 December 2015 (UTC)Danan (talk)
