Amnesia test[edit]

I'm still reviewing Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/The Elstree Project. One piece of advice I'd recommend for anyone with a WP:COI attempting to write an article is the amnesia test:

  1. Forget everything you know about The Elstree Project; act as if you know nothing
  2. Go back to your sources and re-read them
  3. Think about what information those sources have to offer, and include that information in the article
  4. If you find that you can't write about a piece of information you'd like to include because it isn't covered in your sources, then don't include it. We don't want original research.
  5. If you find that you can't write barely much of anything at all, then the subject probably isn't notable for Wikipedia.

Just some thoughts. Cheers, Michaelzeng7 (talk) 04:29, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Your submission at AfC The Elstree Project was accepted[edit]

AFC-Logo.svg
The Elstree Project, which you submitted to Articles for creation, has been created.
The article has been assessed as Start-Class, which is recorded on the article's talk page. You may like to take a look at the grading scheme to see how you can improve the article.

You are more than welcome to continue making quality contributions to Wikipedia. Note that because you are a logged-in user, you can create articles yourself, and don't have to post a request. However, you may continue submitting work to Articles for Creation if you prefer.

Thank you for helping improve Wikipedia!

Help me! Citing first party source[edit]

check-mark
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Help! I'm trying to cite a source on The Elstree Project, where it states Roger Moore as one of the interviewees. There are no third party sources to verify this, but the Project's website has a behind the scenes photo of their interview with Roger Moore, which proves it to be true. I've looked at WP:SELFSOURCE but feel the guidelines are too open to interpretation.

I'd usually say that if there is no third-party source for a certain fact, that fact likely isn't all that important in the first place. If no one but them bothers to mention that interview, neither should we. Huon (talk) 00:36, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
It's been reported in a print newspaper, but not online, so it's hard to prove there's been an article! Howie 00:48, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
Citations do not always have to be online; you are allowed to cite print sources. You can use {{cite news}} to format it. Some popular newspapers keep an online archive of many of their historic print publications. Although sometimes, you need a subscription to access them. Mz7 (talk) 21:19, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi HB. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:42, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Please note in first paragraph of the Thunderbirds (TV series)page someone has placed the following….

“and also stupid and dumd noone should watch it”
This seems to be one person’s opinion and not a general agreement or fact..

Orphaned non-free image File:Joe90DVD1.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Joe90DVD1.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:56, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
