How do I make references appear inline?

23:02:40, 5 August 2016 review of submission by Reggiedunlap[edit]

Hello, I am just writing to gain some more feedback from you on the draft I published. I appreciate your feedback, and would like to make a valid entry to wikipedia. As a fan of sports, I have read many articles from notable third party sources about a training company called EVO Ultrafit. I thought I synthesized those articles to create a neutral entry, but it seems I could make some improvements. I thought that including relevant criticism would help with that. Are there any other specific corrections you would recommend? Thank you and I look forward to getting your feedback and hopefully making a contribution to wikipedia.

I am not presently requesting a re-review. Please see request below

Dear Gbawden,

Thank you for taking the time to review this application. I have cited sources from publications such as New Music Express, the Face, Q magazine, The Guardian news paper. These are extremely well known and often international publications. In music and entertainment circles there are very few if any that rank higher. Please explain as to how reviews from these magazines regarding the subject do not constitute significant notability.

Many thanks

Natalie Hitchcock

Dear Admin, Thank you so much for your review, I have corrected the article and used three more sources about the company. I apologize I did not add any external sources, however, we are first to produce affordable oral drug treatment of hepatitis c in Pakistan, and aware people through our facebook to make our country hepatitis free. Thank you.

As you have mentioned in the comment "Needs references from reliable 3rd party sites to demonstrate notability" but i have given three references which are reliable and independent. Can you please clarify it a little bit more. What else i need to change?

I have incorporated the feedback from the previous reviewer, and added additional references that came out recently. Could you please rereview?

00:10:40, 23 August 2016 review of submission by Mkadrie[edit]

I have viewed many Wikipedia articles that read very similar to our submission. It doesn't read like an advertisement, there are only facts there and nothing is being promoted. So is the only issue the news articles that were associated with the information? It sounds like you need some write ups on zoetifex and not interviews. However, I have seen many interviews used as reference on Wikipedia. I also included write-ups from that were not interviews. So if you could be a little more clear on how I can clean this up to meet the requirements, that would be very helpful. Thank you!

Hello, While Jerry Sturgill is a first-time candidate, he ran a successful primary, where he received more than 24,000 votes in the Democratic primary. Additionally, there are other Idaho politicians who have not held elected office who have published Wikipedia pages.

14:15:30, 26 September 2016 review of submission by Idontknowwhatimdoinghere2016[edit]

what do i do to get my draft accepted?

22:29:17, 28 September 2016 review of submission by Critic-911-father[edit]

Gbawden, thank you for the feedback. Much appreciated. Obviously I think subject is notable or would not have submitted the article. I accept your recommendation to modify to look less like a resume-- that was certainly not the intent. But subject has made a substantial impact on a critical mission within the US Navy (where I worked for him), and I'm trying my best to convey that.

Here are the criteria you referred me to:

Commanded a substantial body of troops in combat; or Made a material contribution to military science that is indisputably attributed to them; or Were the undisputed inventor of a form of military technology which significantly changed the nature of or conduct of war; or Were recognized by their peers as an authoritative source on military matters/writing. For the purposes of these criteria, a "substantial body of troops" refers to a capital ship, a division or larger formation, or their historical equivalents.

So the part that confuses me is that subject (a) did command a substantial body of troops, significantly more than a capital ship (a submarine squadron is a grouping of six nuclear submarines, hence he commanded a squadron of six capital ships), he did made a material contribution to the military science doctrine of antisubmarine warfare, has been recognized by his peers as authoritative source on the military subject of antisubmarine warfare, although many of the references that would demonstrate this are classified.

Guidelines also state "The consensus within the Military history WikiProject is that the following types of units and formations are likely, but not certain, to have such coverage and therefore likely, but not certain, to be suitable for inclusion: ... Warships, including submarines, commissioned in recognised naval forces. Examples include HMAS Sydney, USS Enterprise and SMS Blücher;"

Hence his command of several submarines should qualify, shouldn't it?

It continues: "Higher level naval command formations, such as flotillas, squadrons and fleets. Examples include Caspian Flotilla, West Africa Squadron and United States Seventh Fleet; and"

Again, he commanded a submarine squadron.

So it appears he meets several criteria for notability, no?

In addition, behind featured on two 2016 documentaries, one having aired multiple times on national TV just add to the notability, doesn't it?

So I guess I'm confused why criteria that are clearly met are not persuasive to you.

Thanks for your help in understanding. I don't want to waste more time on this if it's dead on arrival.

I do understand the resume comment and am happy to rewrite if that will help.

Please could you advise me? Might you know which four articles about Julian Perkins have been deleted please?

All best wishes,


20:40:55, 9 October 2016 review of submission by Dannuxk2[edit]

Hello, I am confused by the rejection of my article. For the following reasons:

1- I am not related by any means with the GoldenCheetah project. I am just a coach that uses this kind software to analyze the performance of my athletes. There are other commercial applications like WKO which are not free. I was surprised that there was no information in Wikipedia about a software that is free and that is not asking for any donations whatsoever. Therefore, I decided to create the article.

2- If you refer to other free software application like Debian in Wikipedia you will see the same approach as I wrote mine. If I am expecting to search for the definition of the software I would like to find the information that I wrote in my article.

This is very discouraging to have the article rejected especially when I do not have any commercial interest in the product.

Thank you, Daniel Corredor

14:27:27, 4 November 2016 review of submission by Russjarv[edit]

Thanks for looking at the JUMO page. I felt I'd included satisfactory and recent references from the likes of BBC, Wired and Bloomberg. I also feel the draft is objective. Do you suggest I submit it as a stub rather than as a Wiki entry?

19:20:51, 7 November 2016 review of submission by Vukhudo[edit]

I have updated the article by using footnotes and added additional information about the subject. Please review Thank you

New Page Review needs your help[edit]

Hi Gbawden,

As an AfC reviewer you're probably aware that a new user right has been created for patrolling new pages (you might even have been granted the right already, and admins have it automatically).

Since July there has been a very serious backlog at Special:NewPagesFeed of over 14,000 pages, by far the worst since 2011, and we need an all out drive to get this back down to just a few hundred that can be easily maintained in the future. Unlike AfC, these pages are already in mainspace, and the thought of what might be there is quite scary. There are also many good faith article creators who need a simple, gentle push to the Tea House or their pages converted to Draft rather than being deleted.

Although New Page Reviewing can occasionally be somewhat more challenging than AfC, the criteria for obtaining the right are roughly the same. The Page Curation tool is even easier to use than the Helper Script, so it's likely that most AfC reviewers already have more than enough knowledge for the task of New Page Review.

It is hoped that AfC reviewers will apply for this right at WP:PERM and lend a hand. You'll need to have read the page at WP:NPR and the new tutorial.

Hi Gbawden,

I have tried to put an article for Guy in the Sky Pictures and was rejected on the 6th November by you and I have attached more references. Guy in the Sky Pictures is veteran Indian filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor's boutique production house and after their first mainstream Indian film called Fitoor, they are working on several ideas and projects and is currently the hottest independent studio in Mumbai. I request you to accept my resubmission in favor of that. Regards

17:42:10, 21 November 2016 review of submission by Ron Boat[edit]

Sirs, references to personal and business websites have been removed per your suggestion. The blog is certainly a 3rd party verification of the work of Mr. Boat as is the Google+ reviews by professional third parties. The client feedback page has been removed although it too is certainly verification of professional status and reputation within the production industry by third party professionals.

Existing verification sources seem to be as legitimate as those of actors which use a list of performances and the IMDB site which itself is editable by listed personnel. we know it's probably tougher but hard copies are available of things listed.

We appreciate your reconsideration and suggestions

04:18:41, 24 November 2016 review of submission by Deepakkparashar[edit]

Hi Gbawden, thanks for reviewing my draft. I just need to discuss few things so I can improve it for inclusion. The draft I created was for a company, they are active from 2014. I created the draft with all the facts available and cited the reliable independent sources (like economictimes, businessline, etc.). The reason for decline that I received is something like that the references are not reliable and need improvement. I would request that please check once again, provided references are from sources like deccan chronicle, economictimes, that are big names itself. And they covered company's journey and operations quite well. I would urge if we add this page, other users can also add up new facts with more references that would make the page a well deserved entry for Wikipedia. The company is growing well as I noticed in some given references, so request you to reconsider the inclusion. I have seen pages on Wikipedia with little information and few references that are live, like these Room_On_Call, OYO_Rooms, AirDine, etc. All I want to request is my subject is also growing decently and there are Wikipedia users who will be adding more facts about the company once the page is there. But for that it at least deserves a chance. Thanks

New Page Review - newsletter[edit]

Hello Gbawden,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Breaking the back of the backlog
We now have 283 New Page Reviewers! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog. Now it's time for action.
Mid July to 01 Oct 2016

If each reviewer does only 10 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
Let's get that over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.

Second set of eyes

Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work. Read about it at the new Monitoring the system section in the tutorial.

File:John Dunville VC.jpg listed for discussion[edit]


A file that you uploaded or altered, File:John Dunville VC.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for discussion. Please see the discussion to see why it has been listed (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry). Feel free to add your opinion on the matter below the nomination. Thank you. BwanaHewa (talk) 10:11, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

I found the photograph named John_Dunville_VC.jpg on 14 September 2004 when I was having a private viewing at a museum of a scrapbook and photograph album that were compiled by Robert Lambart Dunville (1893-1931). Robert Lambart Dunville was the older brother of John Spencer Dunville VC (1896-1917), and I assumed that this photograph was of John Spencer Dunville. The museum photocopied the photograph for me and when I returned home I scanned the photocopy. Later I uploaded the photograph to a family history website that I run, to the page and labelled it as John Spencer Dunville. I assume that the photograph was downloaded from my web page or from Google Images and uploaded to Wikipedia.

On 1 November 2016 I showed the photograph to the Assistant Curator of the Household Cavalry Museum at Combermere Barracks in Windsor. He said the cap badge was not for the regiment in which John Spencer Dunville served, the 1st (Royal) Dragoons, but for the regiment in which his brother Robert Lambart Dunville served. I believe the cap badge is for the Grenadier Guards. The youngest brother of Robert Lambart Dunville, William Gustavus Dunville (1900-1956) also served in the Grenadier Guards, and so the photograph could be of Robert Lambart Dunville or William Gustavus Dunville, but it is most probably not of John Spencer Dunville VC, as claimed by the name of the photograph.

No pages on the English Wikipedia link to this file, and I am not aware of any pages anywhere else that link to this file. I have uploaded a correct image of John Spencer Dunville VC to Wikipedia Commons: John Spencer Dunville VC (1896-1917).jpg. I would be grateful if John_Dunville_VC.jpg could be deleted from Wikipedia. BwanaHewa (talk) 10:11, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Dear Gbawden, why have you submitted a deletion notice for the article "The relationship between physical sales and digital downloads in the music industry"? The editor/author of this page is in a course supported by the WikiEd foundation and has made updates and corrections to the article based on earlier feedback. The article is well-sourced and neutral in offering empirical evidence to demonstrate a relationship between physical sales and digital downloads. Please respond with clarification. Specific recommendations for improvement would be helpful if you are going to mark an article for deletion. Thank you. Amyc29 (talk) 16:17, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

20:04:48, 30 November 2016 review of submission by MaxieDog[edit]

As a first attempt to contribute an article, my experience has been both rewarding and disappointing. The reward was discovering that there is much more information about this subject yet to be uncovered. The disappointment has been the slowness of my ability to learn how to get the information documented in an acceptable manner. Having been fortunate enough to hear this artist in live concerts during the 1960s, my reason for attempting the article on him had to do with his extraordinary command as a performer and his reputation as a teacher. There have been few artists in history who specialized in performing all 32 Beethoven Sonatas in consecutive weekend programs. I realize that Wikipedia must decide whether or not a subject meets the criteria.

The draft article has been reworked and is now at the point where I must ask if it is worth my time to continue researching the subject. If not, then I must at least thank the various editors who helped me with the project. MaxieDog (talk) 20:04, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Addendum: The draft resubmitted has three lines of what I call 'garbage' beneath reference #11. It should be deleted, but for some reason

                    it did not show up on my edit page for deletion.

Hi Gbawden. It would appear that at this time this topic can not be added. I am the creator of Tykhe Dice (Paul Birkeland-Green) and therefore not a third party. Perhaps at some point someone I deem able will write a similar definition of Tykhe Dice. It is a pity as the term and system is now becoming more widely know but not documented much outside of our official website:
