Leyla Turkkan article[edit]

re Leyla Turkkan article, do you suggest I do a revision and then resubmit it? I totally get the comments re making it more factual and not "peacock" words. I guess I'm a little perplexed as to the process here, because so many people looked at it and made comments. I'm going to the Tea Room now to see what's what. Any guidance you have re how to help this article fit into Wikipedia guidelines - I welcome it!! Thanks, Julia — Preceding unsigned comment added by Juliaerickson (talkcontribs) 18:05, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Julia,
Yes, definitely revise and resubmit. Hit me back when you've had a chance to do it and I'll take a look. Thanks! Julie JSFarman (talk) 13:38, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi JS, I resubmitted and have now been rejected because of sources. There are many sources, not sure which are not adequate, or which things need to be cited. As you know, so much was not written down during that time... Are there any insights you can offer me? Thanks Juliaerickson (talk) 23:03, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi again @Juliaerickson: - I responded to your message at the bottom of this page yesterday, and made some quick changes to the article which are detailed below. However, @LaMona: reviewed the article at great length and gave you specific guidance, even indicating some of the statements which need sources with [citation needed]. There is a ton of information included in the submission and very little of it can be verified. Prove it or take it out. Please read LaMona's review, and also read WP:VERIFY. Julie JSFarman (talk) 02:00, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the response, Julie! I couldn't find the message you sent yesterday - still getting used to working on this platform. I will see what I can tell from @LaMona: response. Best Juliaerickson (talk) 02:34, 21 December 2015 (UTC)


Hi JSFarman -

Thank you again for taking the time to review my article and answer my questions about my last resubmission. Per your recommendations, I edited the draft to reflect a smaller scope and establish notability. I removed all information that is not supported by reliable sources and I also added a discography list to support his notability in the music industry. As you mentioned in your last message, when you search for Jacob, a lot of blogs/gossip sites come up. However, I was able to find a few additional sources, but a lot of articles are not available online because of the time when they were written. I hope I was able to properly establish his notability in the entertainment industry given the available resources. Thank you again for your time. I hope to hear from you soon.

10squared (talk) 19:25, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi again 10squared (talk. THe edit is solid (thanks for doing that) but his notability hasn't been establiished. References don't need to be online; if you have citations from valid, reliable sources that provide extensive coverage you can use them. Check out WP:CITE for guidance.
Also - I think you need to mention his father since you use an article about him to support the article.
Thanks for your patience - apologies for the delay - I've been getting crazy obsessive working on a couple of articles! Julie JSFarman (talk) 17:46, 19 September 2015 (UTC)


Khaki Jones[edit]

hi and thank you so much. I'm new here obviously and really appreciate your thoughtful kind words. I seem to be putting out fires mostly since I've been targetted as a sock? not sure what a sock is but apparently looking up and smiling at people makes me a tourist here. sorry. sorry for saying sorry. do you know how I can get unsocked? am guessing this means someone is pretending to be me or something? I can assure you this is me, although you don't care since you don't know me. sigh. in any case thank you. I am looking for someone to adopt me, which is to say help write this article about animation writing pioneer Khaki Jones. would you be willing to take a look? thanks again, I liked your article in Spin. cool stuff. glad you're still writing. best, AnneAsdiprizio (talk) 16:22, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Anne, I looked at your contributions/talk pages to see where you were accused of being a sockpuppet and didn't find anything. (Sockpuppets are mulitiple accounts created by a single user generally to advocate for a specific point of view, or just to vandalize, etc.) It looks like you may have been blocked on Commons??
I'll help you with the article. It might take me a minute, but let's get it done! I'll leave some notes on the draft.
I'm sorry you haven't felt more welcomed -- the community here can be a bit prickly, which sucks. But if you stick around (and your intentions are good) it'll pass. My experience has been that editors want to help people, and everyone is happy when a new editor keeps editing; I know for sure that I am.
I hadn't read that article from Spin in ages. I like it too. It's definitely a memento of the past...the way back days when record companies had money to spend on journalists! Thanks for getting in touch. Julie JSFarman (talk) 20:12, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

I was so happy when I read your message here, thank you! apparently I was blocked on commons because the images I created were tagged as trying to advertise ??!! which is pretty funny if it weren't actually wrong and resulted in blocking me. I think a kind person is helping sort that out. thank you so much for your encouragement and help. Asdiprizio (talk) 14:30, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Misspent Youth Band[edit]

Hi Julie Many thanks for your positive response and taking the time to help on the Misspent Youth Page that would be great if you can dig out some other references, Ill keep looking too Kind regards Geoff Bubbles (Geoff Bubbles (talk) 21:53, 1 October 2015 (UTC)) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.137.210.249 (talk) 21:52, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Misspent Youth Band[edit]

Hi Julie In regards to our previous conversation regarding UK Punk Rock Band Misspent Youth article. Here is what I have been able to find: Misspent Youth single `Betcha Wont Dance` was reviewed in 1979 at the time of release by Melody Maker & Sounds, their album retrospective `The Punk Years 1976-1980` was reviewed in Record Collector Magazine UK December 2002 pg 135. These are three important UK Journals that are respected worldwide. I have a copy of the Record Collector magazine itself however I am not sure how to access Melody Maker & Sounds archives for their references? The `Bored Teenagers` Website is run by David `Dizzy` Holmes who is one of the UK`s foremost collectors of Punk Rock and has also run Detour Record company (which has 5 label offshoots) and has hundreds of releases over 25 years, `punk77` is also an authoritative `go to` for information on the UK Punk Scene which I notice is quoted as an external link on Wikipedia`s `Punk Rock` page (would this be the way to go for those references to use as an external link?). As you probably already know UK/USA Punk Rock was a worldwide phenomenon which lasted between 1976 & 1980 but changed the music scene and had a massive influence on youth culture + trends at the time, any artist who released a punk rock record in this period (especially on an independent label) is of interest across the globe so much so that it has become a huge Record Collectors market. As I often use Wikipedia to find information on bands myself I noticed that there are several important ones not covered it was my aim to write about some of these so that Wikipedia could become a central point of reference for this scene and other such `scenes`. I am just starting to get concerned about how many references I am going to need to achieve this, the authority of them and how I might access such. In light of this as this is my first article any more suggestions would be most helpful? Mr Bubbles (Geoff Bubbles (talk) 11:51, 5 October 2015 (UTC)).

Hello (Geoff (talk). You can add the citations without having a URL - just use all of the details that you have regarding the article (publication, author, date, title, page - etc.). Punk77 is good as a source, but Bored Teenagers isn't - it wouldn't be considered reliable (and I'm not sure that it would be independent) - see WP:RELIABLE. If you have three solid references for the band the article should stick.
I agree that there are some huge omissions; as a fan I know that there are hugely influential bands/records that aren't in Wikipedia because the references simply don't exist. (I am certain of notability personally but unable to demonstrate it as required.)
I've been slammed this week and haven't had a chance to do much research but I'll get on it. Are there other artists you're interested in?!? Thanks! Julie JSFarman (talk) 17:42, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Misspent Youth Band[edit]

Hi Julie Thanks again! I have now deleted `Bored Teenager` references as advised and added a couple of stronger references making four all together, I hope this fills the criteria. I will add a couple more references regarding `Melody Maker` & `Sounds` when I am able to, I need to be more specific obviously than just the year (I will try the central library as soon as I can get there). In the meantime is it possible for you to review the article and move it to the main site or do I have to send it in for review myself? You asked what other bands I was interested in writing about? One article I was looking to write is on `Anti-Social` who caused a storm amongst the press when they offered fifteen thousand pounds to any person who would commit suicide on stage at one of their concerts (glad to say no one took them up on their offer) they released a single called `traffic lights` which has become one of the Holy-Grails of punk rock collecting. I am also fascinated by the late 60`s Garage bands era of the US. I Cant find any Wikipedia mention of the US Band `Pugsley Munion` (members later worked with Boston & Heart) or `Christopher` Then there`s the psych/prog bands of the early 70`s, the `Fire` (who became The Strawbs) their page could use more info, no mention of `Titus Groan` (signed to the Dawn label) or `The Spectres` who later became Status Quo. This was another golden age for music. So again appreciate your help and advice Kind regards Geoff (Geoff Bubbles (talk) 20:52, 5 October 2015 (UTC))

Sorry for the delay. I would like to say that I've been busy but it's really because I went completely down the rabbit hole on a completely random article. (The subject is really cool, but I've been a bit obsessive about it.) ANYWAY. I will look at Misspent Youth tomorrow (and respond more approrpiately to this message -- I'm very psyched about the possiblity of an article on Anti Social! Julie JSFarman (talk) 01:01, 8 October 2015 (UTC)


Misspent Youth Band[edit]

Hi Julie Thanks again for your time. It seems on further research that the British Library might hold back copies of the major music papers such as Melody Maker, Sounds, NME etc I have written to them and they have promised a reply ASAP. Yes looking forward to starting article no 2 on `Antisocial` band hopefully after my experiences with `Misspent Youth` band article it might be a little easier to complete. Looking forward to your reply on new `Misspent Youth` version with the new supported quotes. Kind Regards Geoff (Geoff Bubbles (talk) 18:05, 12 October 2015 (UTC))

In response to your review on my Draft:Kenneth Earl Medrano[edit]

Hi there JSFarman!!!! In regards to my response regarding on reviewing my draft "Kenneth Earl Medrano", certainly I want to say Thank You for reviewing my draft even though you decline it. But I want to clarify with you regarding to your comment about the notability of the subject you stated "He doesn't meet the notability as a model, actor, or singer". I will made more clarifications of it to you by means of explanation. First, the subject is very known by people through his talent, he started as a local talent & professional model in Cebu. It was added when his name was known to many when he made "dubsmash" videos especially the song "Twerk it Like Miley" by Brandon Beal on which among all of his videos he posted, is very known viral on social media. That is why the people was known on him when he was guested on an episode of "KJMS10: Twerk It Like Miley". So the subject is existed and it has a notability.

Second, about your comment regarding to the statement "That among All of the references are related to That's My Bae". Yes, it is very true that all of its references are related to the statement "That's My Bae" since Medrano join the competition together with other men who first discovered their talents in the internet. Aside of his talents he showed on various social media sites like singing, he has a talent of dancing as well. And the subject is very factual, understandable to everyone since this person is very well-known here in the Philippines in regards of posting "dubsmash videos" & he was known to many as the "Dubsmash King" here in the Philippines. Generally, he became the "Grand Winner" of the competition and earned a grand prize, his achievements is the primary key on which people offered him new opportunities like involving into his abilities in acting. Even though this person is a new one in the world of entertainment, but he is very known to many especially in his hometown before he entered showbiz & join the contest.

I've been working this draft for a very long time checking all of the errors on it and at this point, all of the references of him are verifiable, reliable & has an accuracy, very factual and non-biased. Instead, I fixed its references by your suggestion of adding a "citation" notes on my draft in order to be understandable & easily to find its links. Thanks for your suggestion and assisting me on this matter. Highly much appreciated.

Hi Mystywave18 (talk), and sorry for the delay - I've been traveling.
I understand what you're saying, and it's obvious that a lot of great work has gone into the draft. But it doesn't change my perspective on the suitability of the article for Wikipedia. You don't have to go through AfC, you know -- you can just publish the article directly. Just use the move tab on the top of the page and move the article to the article space under the title Kenneth Earl Medrano. I think it is likely to be nominated for deletion, but maybe at this point you should take your chances with the community. Multiple reviewers have had the same concerns, and short of finding more references (from reliable independent sources) there's not a lot of advice I can offer. JSFarman (talk) 18:49, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Misspent Youth Band[edit]

Hi Julie Now received reply from British Museum, they do hold UK Music Papers on file however they are not available via the internet. This will mean a trip to London (a long way from me). I think prudence dictates that I research several subjects at once if I take such a trip to make it worthwhile. In the meantime I have completed the Misspent Youth article with relevant available references, would appreciate it if you could let me know the final outcome. Kind regards Geoff (Geoff Bubbles (talk) 08:52, 15 October 2015 (UTC))

Hi again Geoff Bubbles - I did what I could with the article and published it. I'm not sure if it will stick or not, but I hope it does - I put a tag on it saying that more references are needed - I'll keep looking for sources. (Sorry about the brevity - I'm traveling.) Julie

15:23:01, 15 October 2015 review of submission by Sarahgrieve651[edit]

Hi there, many thanks for your review. Just wondering where you would like to see further citations? Is it the award listings that are the issue? In the previous review I was told not to use news sources that had obviously regurgitated First Names Group press releases, but unfortunately it is proving difficult to find other online references to the company's older award wins as listings are no longer available and/or have been replaced by more recent listings. Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Hi Sarahgrieve651: It's not an issue of citations, and I apologize if my comment was confusing - it was secondary to the issue of notability. The primary concern with the article is that notability hasn't been established -- you need multiple references which provide extensive coverage via independent reliable sources. The refs you've used aren't adequate. See WP:NCORP for details. Thanks, Julie

Hi Julie Many many thanks for your help in setting up my 1st article and helping create the page, appreciate the adjustments and additions. Also I know you guys are volunteers just like myself and time can be hard to find. I know have the incentive to move on with my next article, Anti Social Band being the next one. Kind regards Geoff(Geoff Bubbles (talk) 17:33, 17 October 2015 (UTC))

DYK for Harry Brand[edit]

Graeme Bartlett (talk) 00:01, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Thx4thx[edit]

Thank you Julie, do tell everyone you meet how good it is to see your articles get magically better. That's the way that DYK is meant to work. Sometimes you just get someone who wants to just explain how important they are, but most of the time its just nice people working well together. Sometimes you even get someone who shows you a whole new aspect to your article (say that Brand was a Russian spy) and that great. We give out a medal when you have done 25. Do ooze at the "did you know" project as it would be good for them to remember what the project is about. Although we don't very often get a newbie as experienced at wiki stuff as you are. Do return to my talk page if you get hassle or you want to help with fixing the low number of women bios on Wiki. You will also get a buzz when you see how many people have read your article .... tomorrow. Cheers Victuallers (talk) 20:58, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Victuallers! Thanks for the encouragement (or thanks for the thanks for the thanks). I love the idea of Harry Brand, Spy. (I wouldn't be all that surprised.) I will definitely ooze at DYK! And since I am part of AfC, I see a ton of new articles, and as such can maybe come up with 25 hooks. New motivation!
AND! 2000+ views on Harry Brand. That is amazing! Julie JSFarman (talk) 13:25, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Leyla Turkkan article[edit]

Hi JS, I resubmitted the rewritten article about Leyla, forgetting I should run it by you first. I hope I fixed everything! Thanks, Juliaerickson (talk) 20:12, 17 December 2015 (UTC) Juliaerickson

Hello Juliaerickson (talk) - You should read WP:VERIFY. The assertions of the article -- the statements about Leyla and her career - need to be verifiable. For example, if you say she was Grandmaster Flash's assistant, you need a source which specifies exactly that - a thank you in Russell Simmons' book isn't adequate. I didn't go through the whole thing, but the references I looked at were insufficient. JSFarman (talk) 01:46, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Writing for the Music Industry and advice on COI[edit]

Hi JSFarman,

I am wondering how you would (I should) go about writing an article for a company when it can be inferred that there is a COI. As a major contributor to these articles, I do have ties to the business but still want to present the information in a neutral manner. That said, others may have a perspective on the topic that makes it seem non-notable to them. I've read the Notability wiki and feel as though I am writing within the notability guidelines, though I am still getting some major pushback. Could you suggest anything I can do to make sure the pages are supported by the community?

Thanks for your answer,

(Spuderman (talk) 05:54, 7 February 2016 (UTC))

Hi Spuderman (talk) 05:54, 7 February 2016 (UTC)). If you disclose your COI (as you've done on your userpage) and put your articles through AfC (with another disclosure) you should be fine. Reviewers will check for neutrality, notability, verifiability, and edit or comment as approrpiate. If you have a conflict of interest, don't publish it yourself - always put it throuugh AfC.
The problem with the article you submitted is that your references were weak - you didn't establish notability. You can't use primary sources (not the company's website or press releases), and the coverage needs to be extensive. Mentions don't establish notability. There are articles you can use - The New York Times, for one. I noted this on the AfD, along with links to other articles on Danny Wimmer Presents. I changed my delete to WP:USERFY - I hope that it will be moved back to your userspace rather than deleted, and then you can rework it. Hit me back if you need help. JSFarman (talk) 04:11, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi JSFarman,

Thank you for your input on the matter. I would hope that I get a chance to have it put in my userspace as opposed to having it deleted. I was not quite certain on the procedure for using primary sources such as press releases and company websites. I appreciate you understanding the notability therein, as well. I underestimated the process of creating an article here altogether, but this really sheds light on what I need to learn to make a great article. I will use more interviews, news, and all that is more secondary in nature to create the article, as opposed to my firsthand knowledge that can go more or less unverified as it may not be available elsewhere. Is there a way for me to suggest that it be moved? Thanks for your help!

(Spuderman (talk) 18:08, 8 February 2016 (UTC))

Vic Fuentes[edit]

Hi JSFarman,

I recognized that you reverted a phrase in the main article about Vic Fuentes, lead vocalist of Pierce the Veil because in your point it isn't clear that he suffered mental illness. I found following passage in the article out of FUZE Magazine #35: Ein Großteil des Albums ist von unseren Fans inspiriert, die uns geschrieben und von ihren Problemen mit Depressionen und Selbstmordgedanken erzählt haben. Aufgrund eigener Erfahrungen kann ich mich damit sehr identifizieren.

The last sentence was important to me so I wrote he suffered mental illness. He said he made his own experiences with mental illness. So could you help to write it so everyone can understand this? --Goroth (talk) 01:43, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi Goroth (talk). The article said prior to my edit that he stated that he struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts. The translation for what you've written above is: "Much of the album is inspired by our fans who have written to us and told about their problems with depression and suicidal thoughts . Based on my experience, I can identify with it." That doesn't say specifically that he himself "struggled" with depression or suicide - it says only that based on his experience, he understands it. If we write that someone is suicidal or depressed we need a rock solid reference for it. If you feel that it's important, maybe include the quote verbatim.
Thanks for asking! Julie JSFarman (talk) 03:23, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Request on 18:48:57, 7 March 2016 for assistance on AfC submission by Lalehnik[edit]


Dear Sir/ Mam

I cannot understand what is wrong with my text about bioybcernetic medicine. I have tried to make the format according to other subjects in Wikipedia, but I have received this message: "Submissions should summarise information in secondary, reliable sources and not contain opinions or original research". would you please notify the problem in my text? Which section should be changed? thank you for your help. lalehnik Lalehnik (talk) 18:48, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Lalehnik (talk) 18:48, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi Lalehnik The article reads like an essay - a collection of information upon which conclusions are drawn. The submission is below. It needs to be strictly factual. The words 'would' 'could' and 'perhaps' are usually not advisable. Hope this helps.
This is despite the advances in technology and research in the field of medicine and pharmacology. Due to the complexity of the biological processes, medical practice and research is highly specialized and commonly focuses on an individual organ or function of the human body. This however has led to neglecting the interaction of different organs with each other (and as a whole), or the role of environmental factors on the biological functions and evolution. It is a long-standing assertion that considering the patient’s body as a whole, while it is more sophisticated, improves diagnosis and treatment. One solution to a successful diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases is the application of biocybernetics[2], or the study of an entire living organism. Biocybernetics is based on considering the controlling force of entire body activities and is not unlike cybernetics[3] in technology. In technological terms, cybernetics informations received through various sensors are sent to a central computer (similar to a human’s brain) to be analyzed, abnormalities diagnosed, and the command for corrective measures is sent to the affected part. The principles of biocybernetic are health and cohesion of hormonal, humoral, peripheral nervous, and connective tissue systems[4]. Since connective tissues are the fundamental tissues of all bodily organs, each organ plays a crucial role in collecting and transferring data to the central control system, i.e. the brain, and transferring commands from this sophisticated control system back to the organs. Therefore, any disruption in any of these systems could result in wrong information being sent to the brain. Hence, wrong diagnosis concluded and inappropriate or possibly even harmful orders sent back to the affected organs. The stimuli of biocybernetic include a variety of stressors such as food intolerance or sensitivities, more than 20 different dental diseases, food and drug poisoning, environmental pollutions, mental stresses, chronic infections, and addiction to opiates. Each of these stressors, alone or in conjunction with others, could cause information distortion leading to disruption of a normal function and, in long-term, ailment of the affected organ[5], [6], [7], [8], [9]. Perhaps the best example could be the case of a stomach cancer, which could start with indigestion as a result of inappropriate diet, alcohol consumption, and smoking. They cause cybernetic stresses, which, if continued and left untreated, could turn to gastritis, stomach ulcer, and ultimately cancer. In summary, attention to the health and harmony of hormonal, humoral, nervous, and connective tissue systems is the foundation of biocybernetic medicine and returning the balance. Biocybernetic medicine requires a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment away from harmful side-effects. Natural therapy, appropriate diet, Neural-therapy, Physio-hydrotherapy, and Phytotherapy are comprehensive treatments that are used[10], [11], [12]. Dr. Gh.

19:01:53, 8 March 2016 review of submission by Lalehnik[edit]


Dear Sir/ Mam I have edited the text for "biocybernetic medicine" as follow. I would like to ask you is it correct now? Lalehnik (talk) 19:01, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Biocybernetic Medicine

Biocybernetic medicine is a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment away from harmful side-effects.

Cause of development of biocybernetic medicine

According to WHO “the burden of chronic diseases is rapidly increasing worldwide” 1. One solution to a successful diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases is the application of biocybernetics2, or the study of an entire living organism. Biocybernetics is based on considering the controlling force of entire body activities and is not unlike cybernetics3 in technology. In technological terms, cybernetics informations received through various sensors are sent to a central computer (similar to a human’s brain) to be analyzed, abnormalities diagnosed, and the command for corrective measures is sent to the affected part.

Description

The principles of biocybernetic are health and cohesion of hormonal, humoral, peripheral nervous, and connective tissue systems4. Since connective tissues are the fundamental tissues of all bodily organs, each organ plays a crucial role in collecting and transferring data to the central control system, i.e. the brain, and transferring commands from this sophisticated control system back to the organs. Any disruption in any of these systems will result in wrong information being sent to the brain and inappropriate or possibly even harmful orders sent back to the affected organs.

Biocybernetic interrupters and diseases

The stimuli of biocybernetic include a variety of stressors such as food intolerance or sensitivities, more than 20 different dental diseases, food and drug poisoning, environmental pollutions, mental stresses, chronic infections, and addiction to opiates. Each of these stressors, alone or in conjunction with others, could cause information distortion leading to disruption of a normal function and, in long-term, ailment of the affected organ5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The best example is the stomach cancer, which start with indigestion as a result of inappropriate diet, alcohol consumption, and smoking. They cause cybernetic stresses, which, if continued and left untreated, turn to gastritis, stomach ulcer, and ultimately cancer.

Treatment approaches

Natural therapy, appropriate diet, Neural-therapy, Physio-hydrotherapy, and Phytotherapy are comprehensive treatments that are used in biocybernetic medicine 10, 11,12. The mentioned treatments are tailored for each patient according to the patient’s condition.

Pioneer of biocybernetic medicine

Dr. Gh. Gharun13 is the pioneer of biocybernetic medicine and the founder of the Institute for Diagnostic and Pain Management in Freiburg, Germany. He has dedicated more than 40 years on beiocybernetic research and practice.

Hi again. There is an article already on Biocybernetics. Perhaps you can add a section about Biocybernetic medicine. But still, while your rewrite is an improvement, it still reads like an essay in some places. Please see WP:NOTESSAY. JSFarman (talk) 14:16, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

21:17:09, 9 April 2016 review of submission by Nic4711[edit]


{{User sandbox}}


Dear JSFarman

Many thanks for your review.

I have read in the suggestions in the text posted after your decision:

"You are encouraged to make improvements by clicking on the "Edit" tab at the top of this page. If you require extra help, please ask a question on the Articles for creation help desk, ask the reviewer that declined your submission"

"Wikipedia requires significant coverage about the subject in reliable sources that are independent of the subject —see the guidelines on the notability of people and the golden rule. Please improve the submission's referencing, so that the information is verifiable."

Regarding "reliable sources" Wikipedia states: "Choose: books from reputable publishing houses, mainstream newspapers, or other periodicals."


In accordance with these suggestions I gently ask you to take the following facts into consideration, which probably I have not enough highlighted in the draft:

Antoine Suarez is one of the uncommon authors who has contributed to science, anthropology, bioethics and theology with relevant achievements. I think this is the sort of fact that deserves to be featured in Wikipedia: It certainly will help to show how science may contribute to clarify crucial philosophical and theological questions.

Accordingly I have shortened my article focusing on this fact and providing reliable and verifiable sources for it, and would like to ask you whether the following shortened version about his "Work and Research" may be suitable for Wikipedia:


Regarding Science: Antoine Suarez has proposed experiments on the foundations of quantum physics that have been published in reputable peer-reviewed journals. In the following articles he appears as author or coauthor and is referred to as having proposed the experiments:

These experiments prove two most astonishing features of the quantum world:

  • Quantum correlations happen without any continuous connection in space and time.
  • Conservation of energy -one on the main principles ruling the material world- requires the action of non-material influences coming from outside space-time.

The experiments also support the philosophical view that the visible world is governed by invisible, non-material principles. This view proves useful in tackling anthropological issues like “soul-brain relationship, “definition of death”, “beginning of the human being”, “origin of humanity”.


Regarding philosophy, anthropology, bioethics, and questions at the boundary of science and theology:

He has contributed with books and articles in reputable publishing houses and periodicals, comments in mainstream newspapers, and experts-meetings with outstanding scientists.

In particular, he has edited books discussing the philosophical implications of quantum physics, neuroscience and mathematics :

  • Is Science compatible with free will?, Exploring Free Will and Consciousness in the Light of Quantum Physics and Neuroscience, Antoine Suarez and Peter Adams (Eds.), Springer: New York, 2013.
On the basis of presentations delivered at the Expert meeting organized by the Social Trends Institute:“Is Science Compatible with Our Desire for Freedom?, IESE, Barcelona, October 28-30, 2010. Antoine Suarez was the meeting's Academic Leader.
Containing presentations delivered at the two Experts meetings:Naturherrschaft, Cologne, Mai 11-13, 1990 and Naturwissenschaft und Weltbild, Vienna, January 15-17, 1991, .

He has organized 1990 a talk at CERN (Geneva) with John Bell to discuss the philosophical implications of Bell's famous theorem, and produced the only film where Bell himself explains his theorem:


He has edited a book discussing the status of human cell entities and proposing criteria to distinguish embryos from non embryos:

  • Is this cell a human being? Exploring the Status of Embryos, Stem Cells and Human-Animal Hybrids, Antoine Suarez and Joachim Huarte (Eds.), Springer: Heidelberg, 2011.
On the basis of presentations delivered at the Expert meeting organized by the Social Trends Institute:“Focus on the Embryo” IESE, Barcelona, January 23-25, 2009. Antoine Suarez was the meeting's Academic Leader.


The following outstanding scientists and authors have contributed to these books and participated in the experts-meetings :

John S. Bell, Gilles Brassard, Nicolas Gisin, Gregory Chaitin, Martin Heisenberg, Giacomo Rizzolatti, Robert Kane, Alfred R. Mele, Giulio Tononi, Herwig Schopper, Paul Davies, Anton Zeilinger, Hans Schöler, William B. Hurlbut, Nicanor Austriaco.

[To the Editor: The fact that all these authors are featured in Wikipedia proves eloquently that Antoine Suarez is well introduced in the scientific and bio-ethical community].


Antoine Suarez himself has contributed to these books with different chapters arguing that:

  • On the basis of potential for neural activity one can derive criteria for defining death, and deciding about the status of stem cells and the inner cell mass: Is this cell a human being?.


He has authored and co-authored articles and essays in peer-reviewed journals of theology, philosophy, moral philosophy, bioethics, medicine, law, psychology :


These studies lead to the following main conclusions:

  • The disappearance of the intermediate varieties is the main fact of evolution. The fact that humanity is sharply separated from other forms of life is tightly united to the sense of moral and legal responsibility.
  • Christian faith does not require that the first sin (which induced the state of original sin) was the misdeed of a single man and woman from whom all mankind is genetically descended.
  • It is possible to bridge the economic and political assumptions of Liberalism with the Catholic social teaching on the basis of the principles of “person” and “the universal good of humanity”.
  • Spontaneous movements and the principle of conservation of personal identity are the basis to ascertain the presence of a human spiritual soul and a human person.
  • The human body is the basic title for assigning rights: The personal rights hold for each human being independently of genome, culture, health, religion.


Some external references to his work:

He has participated in Swiss-TV programs:

End

[To the Editor: I thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions].

Hi User:Nic4711, I don't doubt that he has done significant work, or that he's notable, and I apologize if the decline notice suggested otherwise. I declined the article because the references you used were not about him, but by him. Wikipedia requires significant coverage of the subject via independent sources - books, magazine, journals, papers, etc. When I declined the article I assumed that based on his accomplishments, those sources exists, and it was just a matter of adding them to the article.
I think you've now done that in the external links section you added, but I'm afraid I speak only English. You have put so much work into this and I apologize but I feel underqualified to re-review the article. Can you resubmit the draft so a reviewer with experience in this area can review it? I'll post a heads up in the help area for reviewers. Thank you. Julie JSFarman (talk) 02:14, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Many thanks for your suggestions[edit]

Dear Julie JSFarman,

Many thanks for your suggestions concerning the article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Antoine_Suarez

I have now resubmitted the draft. In the section “References” and also in the text I have added references about him of independent sources (books, magazines, journals, papers). I think these references confirm that he has contributed to science, anthropology,

bioethics and theology with relevant achievements. His work shows how science may contribute to clarify crucial

philosophical and theological questions: In my view this fact deserves to be featured in Wikipedia to the benefit of

the readers. In any case, after publication by Wikipedia the article still remains open to possible criticisms and corrections on

the part of qualified experts.

I highly appreciate your proposal to looking for a reviewer with experience in this area, and thank you in advance for

your endeavor.

Best wishes — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nic4711 (talkcontribs) 18:30, 17 April 2016 (UTC)


21:56:15, 14 June 2016 review of submission by Joeljfreeman[edit]


Hi there,

Are there any particular sections of this article that you feel aren't properly cited/referenced?

I have more recent news and press coverage that can be added to this page to fill it out more - but was wondering if there were any existing sections you'd recommend either taking out or finding more sources for?

Thanks in advance Joel

Joeljfreeman (talk) 21:56, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi Joeljfreeman (talk), It's not that the sections aren't properly cited or referenced, it's that there aren't references which establish her notability. Triple J is good, but the others don't provide the extensive coverage that's required. Think at least three paragraphs that are specifically about Emmi from independent, reliable sources. See WP:NMUSIC for specifics and add the meatier press. Thanks! Julie JSFarman (talk) 22:28, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Julie, good to know! I've resubmitted the page with additional coverage from Clash Magazine, Buzzfeed, Complex, Huffington Post, BBC & The Great Escape Festival - hopefully this helps.

Wikipedia is quite literally one of the references. She has been on Broadway and a title character on a TV show starring John Goodman. What is the reason for the denial?

Hello. Wikipedia is, quite literally, not a reliable source, and even if it was, it would not establish her notability. To establish notability, you need extensive coverage from independent, reliable sources or meet the criteria outlined here. The reason for the denial is that the references you used provide only trivial coverage or are not from valid sources. (IMDb is not considered reliable.) I just did a search and didn't find much, but these would be a better place to start: Giles County Native Gets Role in Alpha House or this article from the same paper. Thanks for your contribution!

Request on 10:30:52, 12 July 2016 for assistance on AfC submission by MrAliMcCall[edit]

Hi JSFarman-thanks for reviewing my article. I understand the point you make about the article being self referential. I have a good deal of external material about Vajrasati yoga but it is in magazines and not online. I can, of course date and reference the magazines if this is sufficient? Thanks!

Hi MrAliMcCall (talk)- References don't have to be online. You can cite sources with the publication/book/journal name, the author, date published, page number, etc. It needs to include enough information that a user could locate the source. Thanks! Julie

Help with MDC Partners?[edit]

Hi I've been reaching out to active editors of the Marketing & Advertising Wikiproject, because I need assistance with an article that falls under that project's scope. The article is MDC Partners, an ad agency holding company. I posted a new draft to the Talk page earlier this summer, and it has been partially implemented, but the editor I was working with has not been back to discuss the rest of the changes. Would you have any time or interest in taking a look? As a full disclosure, I have a financial conflict of interest and created the draft on behalf of MDC Partners (though I aimed to remain neutral and used independent sourcing). I won't make changes myself and am very open to feedback! Thanks! Heatherer (talk) 14:45, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Heatherer (talk), and thanks for your disclosure and for asking! I've edited with a COI before, and I've stopped doing it for the most part because it's so difficult to see where you've compromised neutrality. The sandbox version of your article is an example of how challenging it is - you're obviously experienced with Wikipedia - if you didn't have a COI you'd realize the article doesn't maintain NPOV.
You need to remove most of the adjectives, and definitely the superlatives as well as any of the content which promotes MDC. What's encyclopedic, and what's not? Also, be cautious with forward-looking statements - my rule of thumb is that if it's not appropriate for an SEC filing, it's not appropriate for Wikipedia. Glad to take another look after you've edited. Thanks again for asking. Jule JSFarman (talk) 15:06, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the feedback. I completely understand how reviewing is more challenging when there is a COI. I'm going to comb through and remove any extraneous language. I'd love to have you take another look after I'm done. Thanks so much for offering! Heatherer (talk) 16:17, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi again! Here's the updated draft. I left in only the two sections that still need to be added to the article. I've done my best to remove or rewrite any phrasing that I thought might be problematic. Please let me know if there is anything else I should rework. Thanks! Heatherer (talk) 18:54, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Hello, Heatherer (talk). The draft is better (although I would still make some changes) - but the current article is stronger; I'm not sure why we'd replace the current article with this draft. Can you work your proposed changes into the current article (in a sandbox, not live)? Thanks, Julie JSFarman (talk) 00:20, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Hello! Sorry for the confusion—what I'd saved to my user space was just the remaining proposed sections to be added into the article, not what I was proposing for the entire article. To make things clearer, I've now added the rest of the article into my draft space. This draft includes everything currently in the article, plus my proposed additional sections. Please make any edits you think are needed! Thanks so much for your help, Julie! Heatherer (talk) 19:20, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi again, I replaced the version in your userspace with an edit but the refs kept getting messed up - I ran out of time trying to fix them - if you will I'll switch out the text. Thanks, sorry, too early for me. JuileJSFarman (talk) 13:44, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi Julie. I finally figured out what was up with the references and I'm pretty sure I fixed them. Want to try again when you have a chance? Thanks so much! Heatherer (talk) 13:32, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hello! Just making sure you saw my last message. Thanks! Heatherer (talk) 15:29, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Heatherer (talk)- I did see it, left you a message below. It was still showing up with ref errors. I manually took out the first five ref names - no crazy red error marks but several show up multiple times - if you want to fix that it's maintenance, you can feel free...! Otherwise I made a few new edits and switched out the texts. Mission accomplished I think. Julie

WikiConference 2016 & New Article[edit]

Hi Julie, I was so happy to meet you at the 2016 Wiki Conference here in San Diego. The conference inspired me to spend a couple of days creating new articles. The first, Steve Kowit seems to be live. The second, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Thomas_Mooney_(Chaplain), is awaiting approval. I think I see what I did "wrong." I just winged it with the first one and created the Article. With the second, I created a Draft first, and then submitted as Article. Is there any way to streamline the approval process? Also, any tips you may have for improving either or both articles would be gratefully accepted by me. Hope you had fun in San Diego. Still wondering how your evening went? --Patty Mooney (talk) 00:38, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Help Re: Outdated Article[edit]

Hi JSFarman,

I have been reaching out to a handful editors on Wikipedia that have an established track record with advertising / marketing brand articles for music related companies, and haven’t had a lot of luck. Came across your talk page as I’ve seen your contributions to several music industry related articles. I would love to solicit your guidance in making updates to an existing article.

The article is for Downtown Music Publishing, a music rights management company, based in New York. The company’s article is incredibly outdated, and reflects incorrect information. I must disclose that I have a financial COI with the company, and do not want to introduce these edits without a certified editors endorsement. I have taken the liberty to do some homework and collect many of these data points + resources to update and dropped them in my sandbox, while trying to do my best in maintaining a neutral voice.

I noticed on the article's history, there have been several unsolicited editors attempting to make unencyclopedic edits in the past. Since I want to go about this in the correct way that's most beneficial to the greater community, I won't make any of these changes myself. If you could take a peek and begin a dialogue of how this page can be updated, I'd greatly appreciate it. I welcome copy and structural changes.

Thank you! Rheaghosh (talk) 19:48, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Rheaghosh (talk), I'm glad to help - I'll take a look at it! Thanks for asking. Future ref it's good to link to your sandbox when you're referencing a draft as otherwise it can only be found through your contributions. (I found it!) JSFarman (talk) 23:20, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi again Rheaghosh (talk) - I made changes directly to your sandbox - there was some hype and unnecessary info. I also added some refs. The section about the artists who've recorded at Downtown Studios isn't cited - you need to find references there. Otherwise, take a look, correct typos and factual errors - otherwise I think it's solid and I'm happy to switch out the text. Julie JSFarman (talk) 17:55, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
Hello JSFarman (talk) - you've been incredibly helpful. Thank you. I've gone through the post and made several minor spelling and grammar changes. I've also removed several facts that were a) irrelevant to the company or b) couldn't be properly sourced. I will continue to look up sources, and as facts can be verified, can continue to work with you to update the page. What do you suggest are next steps? Rheaghosh (talk) 18:05, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
It looks good, I may make a change or two but will update the article as soon as I get a minute - happy to help and thanks for persevering - I know it's challenging. JSFarman (talk) 19:50, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Rheaghosh (talk), I just switched out the text. I also moved the page to Downtown (company) as it's no longer about just the publishing division. Done, I think, although I will reread it later. JSFarman (talk) 18:19, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review needs your help[edit]

Hi JSFarman,

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.

File:Tess Rafferty, Recipe for Disaster Set.png[edit]

Hi JSFarman. I'm reviewing the permissions information for File:Tess Rafferty, Recipe for Disaster Set.png, and I just wanted to clarify something before I add the {{PermissionOTRS}} template. In the file description for the image, the source field currently reads "It was available online". We need a more specific source to verify the permission. I did a reverse image search for the image, but it didn't turn up any hits. Do you think you could find the URL of the website where you obtained the image? We just need to understand where this picture came from, whether it's online or from the owner directly. Thanks! Mz7 (talk) 02:50, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi Mz7, it came from her Facebook page, but I just looked for it there and couldn't find it. I think I'm just missing it - she has a lot of photos from over the years. I'll keep looking if necessary. Thank you so much. Julie JSFarman (talk) 15:33, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Aha! I did a little poking, and I found it on Bernadette Pauley's Facebook: link. I will add the necessary modifications to the file description page. Thanks! Mz7 (talk) 15:41, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
Aha back Mz7! Very cool, I wouldn't have thought to do that! Thanks again. JSFarman (talk) 15:49, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I have improved the draft. Brianne Pack (talk) 16:41, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi. You've obviously put a lot of work into this, and thanks for that, but the article remains unacceptable. I just did a search, and it will be hard for you to establish his notability. Further, a lot of the assertions of the article remain unverifiable. Perhaps there's another article you'd like to work on? You clearly rknow music, and there are so many artists missing.

Hi JS, I've edited the piece and gotten rid of the adjectives https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Draft:Joshua_White,_Visual_Artist,_Director&action=submit thanks, Guy

Hi Guy - So great. There are still a few issues though.
  • You still citations in several places - I marked some of them with [citation needed]
  • The content reads like original research or an essay in places - on Wikipedia it's all about reliable sources - I've marked it in a couple of places for you to address, there may be other statements that you need to edit as welll. (Ran out of time.)
  • There shouldn't be any external links in the body of the article. Wikilinks only.
Hope that's helpful, and psyched for the article! You should resubmit when you feel comfortable with it - another reviewer may feel differently about the citations, etc. - or hit me back. Thank you for this article! JSFarman (talk) 20:34, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:David Raskin 2017.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:David Raskin 2017.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Request on 15:50:46, 1 April 2017 for assistance on AfC submission by Jaychibk27[edit]


Hello JSFarman: I hope you are in good spirits! I made the corrections regarding the grammy nomination for Twilite Tone if you can review it and tell me if I did it right and that it fits the "notability" guidelines. Also wanted to ask...I am still compiling the discography section would that be a reason for my article to be rejected? Thank you so much. ----Jaychibk27 April 1st 2017----

Jaychibk27 (talk) 15:50, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jaychibk27 (talk). I started an edit on the article so you can get more of a feel for what the content and format. You should get rid of everything that's not encyclopedic - just the facts - and stay away from anything that sounds like an opinion or an essay or a proclamation! Very light on the adjectives. If you're saying he's an innovator of Chicago house, find a ref that says exactly that, and quote it. I did the first few paragraphs and left notes in bold.
I also started a chart for his discography - take everything that's just a statement about a record he worked on out of the body of the article and move it into the chart. You should keep in mind that people come to Wikipedia looking for information - you want to present in the most efficient way possible.
Then! Referencces! You figured out how to do the info box, I know you can figure out how to format refs correctly. (Get those symbols out of the infobox though.) You only need refs that are applicable to Tone! See WP:REFB.
Hope that helps - it will be a cool article when it's finished! Thanks, Julie JSFarman (talk) 00:14, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Notability at 11 years old[edit]

Dear Julie: Thank you for your review of my posting for Janaya Lo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Jperrylo?markasread=103224901#Your_submission_at_Articles_for_creation:_Janaya_Lo_.28April_1.29

Can you please advise how we can improve the post so that it is accepted? Although Janaya is only 11 years old, she has obviously accomplished more than the normal musician. Therefore, I don't think her age should factor into the notability discussion. She is notable in her area of specialization and has appeared on t.v., radio and in concert. Please let us know what else we can add to the article to meet the definition of notability. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia of fact, and everything that Janaya has accomplished is a fact.

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2607:FEA8:131F:FF4A:34DA:D575:388:C956 (talk) 01:30, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi, 2607:FEA8:131F:FF4A:34DA:D575:388:C956 (talk) 01:30, 4 April 2017 (UTC), I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be flip when I said she was only 11! Her age isn't relevant - she just doesn't meet the notability criteria. See here. The references provided on the draft don't provide the extensive coverage required. She has accomplished much, it is definitely a fact, but she has yet to meet notability as defined by Wikipedia. SHE WILL! She's only 11.  :) JSFarman (talk) 01:48, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

03:59:43, 13 April 2017 review of submission by Stupac99[edit]


Hi there, I respect your opinion. But, I am surprised by your comments. Of course, Ryan Adams is going to be and primary focus of media coverage. He was the leader of the band. But, the articles posted do specifically reference the Shining and how the band evolved and how significant it was to Adams. Also, the band contained both Adams and Mike Viola. And, from that perspective, it would appear to be noteable based on this criteria alone: "Is an ensemble that contains two or more independently notable musicians, or is a musician who has been a reasonably prominent member of two or more independently notable ensembles.[note 5] This should be adapted appropriately for musical genre; for example, having performed two lead roles at major opera houses." I will keep trying to improve my article. But, respectfully, I think it is already noteable. Thx!

Hello Stupac99 I'm not 100% with you on it but points well taken. I just resubmitted on your behalf and accepted the draft. Keep making it better! And thank you. Julie JSFarman (talk) 14:13, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Paul Fox (Singer)[edit]

Hi JSFarman,

Thanks for reviewing my article: Draft:Paul_Fox_(Singer) The reason I am trying to submit this page firstly is because if you Google 'Paul Fox Reggae' the first result is a Wikipedia page about Paul Fox of the Ruts who died a few years ago. We have the same name and this means that many people think I am dead! I am working in the same section of the reggae scene as a number of other people who have Wikipedia pages and I used their pages as a guideline to what is required as they were obviously approved. Below are a couple of examples of Wikipedia pages which either have the same level of links regarding 'notability' or less (and in some cases no working reference links at all). Please could you let me know if they were approved why my page has not been approved. Vibronics Zion_Train

Many thanks and your time is much appreciated.

Paul Bushman0187 (talk) 18:05, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Paul (talk), I'm sorry this is an issue for you! The thing is that Wikipedia's purpose is strictly to provide neutral, accurate information on subjects that are notable (by Wikipedia's definition of notable). In other words, the issue with people thinking you're the late Paul Fox isn't a valid argument for inclusion. The other Paul Fox meets the notability standard. (I was going to see if I could tag the article, but I can't - it needs some work but there are ample sources.) Re: Zion Train and Vibronics, the existence of one article doesn't impact the worthiness of any other article. (That said Zion Train meets notability based on their Grammy win. Not sure about Vibronics, but I tagged the article for references.)
What matters here is that you demonstrate notability, and you haven't done it here. The references need to provide more extensive coverage, and be from reliable sources. See the criteria for notability.
Finally, Writing an autobiography is challenging. It's very hard to be neutral. See here. Also see WP:COI. IF you continue to work on the article, or resubmit it, be sure to disclose that you *are* the subject of the article in order to comply with the terms of use.
I'll see if I can find more references when I get the chance, and if I do, I'll add to your article. JSFarman (talk) 18:42, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi JSFarman, Thanks for taking the time to answer - all comments noted. Many thanks, Paul Bushman0187 (talk) 20:00, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Paul Fox (Singer)[edit]

Sorry - one last thing if you have a moment .... how do I mark the article as autobiographical? Many thanks, Paul Bushman0187 (talk) 20:02, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Absolutely! Thanks for asking Bushman0187. You can create a user page (hit the red link where your name is) and write that you are Paul Fox and that you're creating an autobiography which you are submitting for review through AFC, and then when you resubmit the article note it again in the edit summary. Also, know that if and when the article is published you can't make any substantial edits, really - housekeeping, typos, etc. But cross that bridge when you come to it. Thanks again for asking. Julie

22:20:54, 25 April 2017 review of submission by 67.203.179.234[edit]


thank you for reviewing the article. In regards to being "notable" I did read through the requirements. As the subject has been referenced and awarded by an industry publication and there is a wikipedia entry for it's direct competitor (the sybian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sybian), just curious as to what makes the Sybian notable and this subject not. Thank you. 67.203.179.234 (talk) 22:20, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi 67.203.179.234 (talk), Granted, AVN is the authority in adult, but in my opinion, Motorbunny's notability should be assessed by the same criteria as any other product/company, and winning an award via a trade publication would not be sufficient. Thus, extensive coverage via reliable independent sources is required, and you need more than the AVN and YourTango refs you're using currently. (Really, I searched - I want to see Motorbunny etc. in Wikipedia - but it's challenging to find reliable sources.)
Re: Sybian, two things. The first is that the suitability of one article is never based on the inclusion of another -- see WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS.That said, the Sybian article was created in 2003, when the inclusion criteria was (way less) stringent. (The article from Penthouse isn't online, and the Forbes article is only a trivial mention.) I will do some searching later and if I can't find anything I'll mark the article as not meeting notability.
Sorry. As I said, I'd love to see Motorbunny in Wikipedia but there's not a lot of flexibility in the notability threshold. Feel free to resubmit, though, as another reviewer might feel differently. JSFarman (talk) 22:57, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi 210.18.155.114 (talk), I didn't decline your article based on notability; it was about content. There is very little in the article to distinguish it from a business listing, and Wikipedia isn't a platform for business listings. If you more fully develop the article -- encyclopedically - it may be more suitable.
Regarding KEY Difference,there are two issues. The first is that on Wikipedia, one article is never deemed appropriate for the encyclopedia based on the content of an existing article. See WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. Second, the KEY Difference article probably survived as long as it did because no one noticed it. The company is not notable, and notability comes before content issues. I have marked the article for speedy deletion.
I'm unable to publish the article ASAP or otherwise in it's current form. If you're able to add encyclopedic content, ping me, and I'll happily give it another look.Thank you for your contribution! JSFarman (talk) 15:24, 20 June 2017 (UTC)


Hi there! User:JSFarman, I hope you're doing well.

So now, I've just planned to add few blocks of content to make my recent contribution to be successfully published on Wikipedia.

I'd like to add this block to the "History" section of the Wikipedia draft that which you recently declined. Will you approve if I make these changes?

    • In early 2016, Elixir Lab Pte Ltd launched a slew of products, first being hCue Family, which helps patients store their family's medical records and search for nearby Doctors.
    • Later that year, the offline feature of the pharmacy management software was launched, in a country like India where there are constant internet disruptions & low internet penetration in rural areas, this feature was a welcome boon for pharmacist to continue dispensing life saving medicines in case of emergencies. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.18.174.214 (talk) 15:30, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
      • Hello again, 210.18.174.214 (talk). I appreciate the effort, but this addition isn't neutral. Also (as I'm sure you've noted) the submission was declined due to notability issues yesterday. I suggest that you wait until you have more references, add encyclopedic content to the article which is neutral and verifiable, and then resubmit the draft. Thanks, JSFarman (talk) 18:12, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi again, JSFarman! Last time you said that you didn't declined this page because of the notability but this time you're saying that you declined because of the notability issues. What's wrong with you? Carefully take a look at the reference section of the page, HCue. There are 8 references currently sitting there and still hCue has a loads of press releases widely published across media giants like The Hindu, Business Line, The Times of India, Outlook (magazine) and a lot and lot. Just two references are good enough to publish a Wikipedia page. Also take a look at the Practo Health, Zocdoc, WebEngage, and still there are many Wikipedia pages like this. I wonder how these pages are successfully published when you hold my contribution particularly, I created this draft based on these pages. I strongly feel that there's no issues with this draft. If you feel there's an issue please spend some time, do research, double check, edit the content as better as possible, and approve the draft instead of removing or declining it. I will appreciate that if you do that. I hope you'll do the best. Thanks a lot in advance :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.18.158.229 (talk) 06:31, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi again,210.18.158.229 (talk) 06:31, 22 June 2017 (UTC) What is wrong with me? I have insomnia, my handwriting is illegible, and I spend too much time on the internet.
As I said previously, the existence of one article doesn't justify the existence of another, See WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS.
Please look at your most recent draft, and note that I'm not the reviewer who declined it (which is not to say I would have accepted it). Also, a comment has been left for you. Thanks,JSFarman (talk) 15:48, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

So what should I do now? Kindly gimme a list that which can help me successfully publish this wiki draft.

What is different about HCue? Why is it not run-of-the-mill? Why does it belong on Wikipedia? What facts would a reader need to know about the company? Right now the draft is still essentially a listing. JSFarman (talk) 19:10, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

I accepted Molly Nesbit[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that, although I did not create Draft:Molly Nesbit, I did come across it in my patrols of "very old" AfC submissions and addressed the issues you mentioned myself and have accepted it. It is now located at Molly Nesbit. --TheSandDoctor (talk) 18:44, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

So glad to see it published, TheSandDoctor (talk)! Thanks for taking the time to edit it and thanks for letting me know. There are so many articles from around Art+Feminism that remain in the queue; it is very cool to see one of them in the mainspace. Thank you! JSFarman (talk) 19:01, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

nekesa mumbi moody[edit]

Your draft on nekesa mumbi moody has been moved to user space, because that is almost certainly what was intended, and subpages are not used in article space. If you have questions, ask at the Teahouse. Robert McClenon (talk) 16:27, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the Jaan Uhelszki love[edit]

Hi JSFarman. It was nice to get a star--thank you. I try to acknowledge the female rock journalists whenever possible on here, but it's hard because they rarely have articles about themselves, or interviews about themselves for that matter. And often their own articles aren't available on the Internet and are difficult to find outside of auctions and eBay, because they're pioneers, so citations--it's an issue. Looks like Lisa Robinson, one of the first ever, didn't get an article 'til a couple years ago, and it's a stub, but at least it exists. Maybe we rock journalists and former rock journalists should form a union of archival information-sharing or something. Enjoying your site. Mine. --Utilizer (talk) 20:02, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello! Your blog is fantastic - it has a great feeling - it kind of reminds me of the early days of the internet, when there was so much to discover, and you felt so cool when you discovered it. (I'll be spending way too much time on it - there's a lot to read!)
I agree with you on the issues related to writing about female critics. It's such a drag. I'm going to try to do a few more female critics this month, though - Nekesa Moombi for sure, maybe Danielle Bacher.
Also - your Denise Sullivan article is a stunner!
There's a secret Facebook group for female music journos; I'll find you there and invite you. You'll dig it. JSFarman (talk) 01:08, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Seth Goldstein[edit]

Hello, JSFarman,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Seth Goldstein should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Seth Goldstein .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks,

Winged Blades Godric 11:07, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Winged Blades, I have responded specifically to the issues of the AfD on the project page and edited the article itself to address the tone. As I said there, in hindsight it needs a trim. I write articles on people I admire, I admire Seth Goldstein, and it shows.
I very rarely template anyone, but if I do, I don't template the regulars. I'm not a new user. I've been editing since 2012, and earlier via IP. I've been reviewing articles since 2013, and I've led and participated in edit-a-thons. I know what is a PR source and what is not. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, CNN, ''Business 2.0, Billboard and CNET aren't PR sources. Straight Q&As are sketchy - but with these publications, using quotes based on an interview with the subject of an article is standard and in no way diminishes the reliability or the independence of the source Fact-checking often extends to quotes. JSFarman (talk) 15:15, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Regrets as to the templating.That's a default feature of Twinkle/NPP curation tool and our time does not permit to go through a contributor's history and accordingly write a personalized message or use the default template.Yeah I know it's sorta de-moralizing but deciding on the merits of the article is a task alone so ardous, we can easily leave the semantical aspects! As to your sources, I have seen much PR articles evolving out of these! So it's difficult to be dead sure!And to my dismay, the article was so utterly promotional and beared the usual hallmarks of paid-promotion, I was unable to but bring it to AfD.Winged Blades Godric 03:48, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Winged Blades Godric, Ah, I get it. I don't use any tools other than AfCH.
There are definitely sources in the article that aren't ironclad reliable, but I used those to support benign biographical information (and can remove some of them now since I removed a lot of the detail). But the outlets mentioned above have high editorial standards (as does the New York Times - I just added a ref from there.) Anyway, that can be discussed at AfD, thanks for responding here. JSFarman (talk) 05:29, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Winged Blades Godric, I'm not commenting on the AfD page (yet) because I'm at overkill there. I'm so perplexed. Possibly the tone of the article (before I edited it) made it difficult for you to assess the sources?
I just added three more refs from the New York Times, one from the Washington Post, one from CNET, one from Crain's New York, etc. There are literally hundreds of reliable independent sources that cover Seth Goldstein. (Via the NY Times alone - through the prompt on the AfD page ---- there are six results. The Wall Street Journal has four pieces --a lengthy article specifically about Goldstein Site Specific Founder Tells Rags-to-Riches Tale - as well as another article that appeared on the front page of the paper that was so noteworthy it was written about in Wired and in a Seth Godin book. There are five articles in Forbes (5!!!), and a cover story in Inc.
I could add many more refs, but the article is dangerously close to WP:CITEKILL. I think that if you return to the article, with a fresh eye, you will no longer lean toward delete. JSFarman (talk) 16:20, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello Chris!! I will change it but I think this is one of the rare cases where name-dropping is appropriate; the subheads of the references used all cite her success w/specific artists.

Julie, I consider you a friend even though we have only spent about 20 minutes talking face to face in San Diego last year.

Cullen328 I am so delighted by the overwhelming response to your RfA! It renews my faith in Wikipedia. And I know you'll be a spectacular administrator.
It seems like we met before San Diego, but maybe that was via dogs and music on Facebook...it's good to know you both for real, online, and on WP. Thank you so much for the message and your friendship, and I will definitely be availing myself of your offer to help! Nothing has changed there.  :) JSFarman (talk) 02:22, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

P.G. Morgan - comments[edit]

Hi JSFarman - thanks for your help on my article P.G. Morgan. I have a few follow up questions I'm hoping you can help me with to get this article up and running - would removing the early life section all together help speed the process up? Additionally - how would you recommend dealing with the extra citations? As the draft suggests, I've had many different suggestions on how many citations to use/how to cite things. Would you use one primary citation on the actual sentence/statement, and list the rest of them as references in an additional section? Any insight you can provide here would be most helpful. Thanks again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cmh02010 (talkcontribs) 21:15, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Cmh02010 (talk). Sorry for the delay. I just went through the references, and they don't support the assertions of the article. The first goes to the landing page for ISIS, nothing about P.G Morgan. The second ref isn't independent. The third, for the BAFTA awards, doesn't mention his name, and a search on the site for P.G. Morgan, Peter Morgan, and Peter Gwynne Morgan returns no results. #4 isn't independent (and doesn't support the info it follows). The BBC cite would be good if the program was a) transcribed and b)available. First Cut 2 links to a preface, and when I searched the book it appeared that the Peter Morgan referred to is the *other* Peter Morgan. I don't really have time to go through the other references.
To verify his credits, you only need one reference via an independent reliable source. His own website is not valid.
I searched Oxford, Fringe Festival, and other details under each possible name and didn't come up with anything. Your best bet would be to write and submit a stub.If you add all of his credits, you'll end up with a resume, essentially, and that's not what Wikipedia is about.

Bughouse (Band, Australia)[edit]

Dear JS Farman, many thanks for your look at the article and also your super helpful comments! I have done as you suggested, including removing some of the language that I couldn't find references for, and have also included a number of new references where I could find them. The article is now a little shorter, and I hope more to the point. One issue that Ive had is with references from newspaper archives where you can only obtain access if you have a paid subscription. There are a couple of these references in the article, and I have downloaded the pdfs, but can't upload them to wikicommons. The upside of having made copies is Ive been able to be more precise about the dates of these articles, page numbers etc. The article URL is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Bughouse_(Australian_band)#cite_note-24 Many thanks again for your help, and all or any new suggestions gratefully received.

Jeremy McCoy (double bass) title change[edit]

Hi Julie, I am the subject of a page you reviewed and moved from draft form earlier today. The title is "Jeremy McCoy (double bass)". Thanks for accepting the article! I see a problem that should probably be corrected right away. After reading up a bit, I think it means making a move not an edit. The article should really be named "Jeremy McCoy (double bassist)". That's grammatically better and it will also match a disambiguation note on an article titled "Jeremy McCoy". The note there lists "Jeremy McCoy (double bassist)" so it isn't linking. The other Jeremy McCoy isn't just a musician, like me, he's also a bass player!!(bass guitar, as opposed to double bass, but pretty darn close). You can imagine the online morphing and confusion - especially with google's acquisition of youtube. Having two defined articles on wikipedia should help. I hope you can make this change without much trouble and send the article out into the wiki-sphere with this better title. Thank you very much for your time and expertise! JM 24.46.150.16 (talk) 02:11, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jeremy. That's wild! I've moved the page to Jeremy McCoy (double bassist). All the best, Julie

Jeremy McCoy (double bassist)[edit]

Thanks Julie! The disambiguation link from the "Jeremy McCoy" article works but shows in red and "not created". I deleted cookies and still red. Maybe it will self correct? Jeremy 24.46.150.16 (talk) 00:19, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Never mind[edit]

Yep - self corrected. It's blue now. Cheers, J 24.46.150.16 (talk) 00:24, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Follow up question[edit]

Hi Julie, When an article is renamed, do internal links (like categories) auto-correct? Is there a way to trigger that? Also, that disambiguation link is back to red. Curious why it would correct and then revert. Thanks, JM24.46.150.16 (talk) 03:15, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I'm not following you. Nothing changes when an article is moved other than the title. The DAB is showing up blue for me...?

22:05:59, 4 October 2017 review of submission by Rpsavory[edit]



Hi JSFarman,

I am hoping to get a little guidance. I have more news articles etc. on the subject but I thought the Tribeca film festival, Sundance and the New York times were the most notable so I actually reduced the reference links. Could you please help me with a more clear path for the creative professional article to be established? I was working to follow the guidelines below but it seems I may not be on the correct path. Your help is appreciated!

Thank you

  2. The person is known for originating a significant new concept, theory, or technique.
  3. The person has created or played a major role in co-creating a significant or well-known work or collective body of work. In addition, such work must have been the primary subject of an independent and notable work (for example, a book, film, or television series, but usually not a single episode of a television series) or of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews.
  1. The person's work (or works) either (a) has become a significant monument, (b) has been a substantial part of a significant exhibition, (c) has won significant critical attention, or (d) is represented within the permanent collections of several notable galleries or museums.


Hi RPSavory. While I appreciate that you've included the criteria here, it would be helpful if you could indicate which of the criteria Rhea Scott meets. None of the references used establish notability; Wikipedia and IMDb aren't reliable sources (and you've used Wikipedia five times) and the IMDb ref is to an article on David Hinojosa. Pablove is a fantastic charity, but not an independent or reliable source; creativity-online provides only a videography/filmography; the NY Time article doesn't appear to mention her (might be my eyes but I'm not going to read it again, because even if it did, it doesn't provide the extensive coverage required); the Ad Age article barely mentions her (and when it does it's a direct quote). Etc. Wikipedia requires multiple references which cover the subject of the article extensively and specifically -- not trivially - and the references must be from reliable, independent sources.

    • As for the other criteria, in my opinion (and based on search):
    • Important figure, widely cited by peers? Not according to search results
    • Originating a significant concept, etc? Not according to search results
    • Co-creating a significant or well known work, etc? I'm sure they're great films, but her role as a co-producer (or production company), to me, doesn't constitute a major role in a creative or significant or collective body of work.
    • Monument, etc: No.
    • PS: Daughter-in-law of Ridley Scott has no impact on notability.

Just so you know, my goal in reviewing articles is to accept them, particularly when the submission is about a woman or non-binary person, as it helps to address the gender gap on WP. But the person needs to meet notability. If I have missed something, address it in the draft, and resubmit. Thanks. JSFarman (talk) 12:26, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Request on 21:28:21, 5 October 2017 for assistance on AfC submission by Mpainter701[edit]


Its been states that my article is not meeting notability requirements. How many sources must I cite to justify that requirement? What else shall i do?

Mpainter701 (talk) 21:28, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi Mpainter701. It's not the number of sources that you use, it's the quality of the sources. In order to meet the inclusion criteria, Kevin Jade Foster needs to have been written about extensively in reliable, independent sources. If you have multiple references (minimum of 3), you can establish his notability. See here for information on sources, and here for notability requirements. JSFarman (talk) 02:52, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

My article is not using independent sources?[edit]

Hello,

I was trying 3 times to publish the article about the company where I work. I thought it would be a good idea to be visible on Wikipedia especially company is growing etc. But 3 times application has been declined. I leave it this for a while. But as I researching the market all the time, I found 2 articles made by competitors which don't have references or they are using the same sources which I was using (which are not independent in the opion of reviewers ). I knew that my company will support some charity organisations in the future, so hopefully, I will be able to add independent sources.

Below is a link to my page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:April_UK And these are to links to the competitors which in my humble decision should be published. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Friendly https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health-on-Line

If you could tell me what you are thinking about it. Is it fair, or not.

Hi Julie JSFarman, Thank you for picking up something that was not been the case. What hasn't been included in the topic. Looks like everything been twisted around. I tried to say that there are different health insurance companies who don't have resources at all, but because they have been created by users who have got 180K contributions been added without checking, so basically what I need to do is to contact with such user and "ask" for creating the article for me. Piece a cake. Thank you for your time Julie JSFarman have a lovely weekend. Kind regards, Gregory Gresgosh
