Regarding your comment on Draft:David Klenerman[edit]

Thanks for your review and your comment. I would like to highlight a point here. Most of the peer-reviewed journal articles that were cited there are not written by David Klenerman. Those are mostly review/highlight/perspective articles where his work have been highlighted (by other researchers). Hence, I think they should be included in article reference only and not in separate "Publication"/"Bibliography" section.

Uvarun2009 (talk) 07:28, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification, that's fine @Uvarun2009:. My immediate remaining concern (without reviewing the article, which obviously I have not done) would be WP:OR regarding "analysis or synthesis of published material that serves to reach or imply a conclusion not stated by the sources." Someone will be along to review Draft:David Klenerman, likely before a week or two is out, to give further feedback. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 14:39, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

15:44:22, 11 December 2015 review of submission by JTCasimir[edit]



I am not currently requesting a re-review. I would, however, appreciate some more detailed help as to how to make the article better.

I was notified that the first paragraph was sounding too peacocky, so I did my best to make it more neutral. If there are other specific items that I can work on, I'd be happy to make changes.

I feel that I have done my best to write in a way that was interesting while still being absolutely factual.

Looking forward to your help,

John

Hi John @JTCasimir:, about Draft:Superprestigio of the Americas, I apologize to be so slow! I'd suggest finding some better references in general sources. (For instance http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/articles/marketwire/1227656.htm is giving me a 404 and would need to be updated); the other 5 sources are very specific to the sport. I'm far from an expert in this field; I think you'd get better advice by asking for editors or advice on a talk page at WikiProject Motorcycle racing. Does that make sense? Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 16:16, 10 April 2016 (UTC)


Jodi @Jodi.a.schneider:,

More mainstream references will not exist for this topic. As much as it pains me, the "Stick and Ball" media doesn't care about motorcycle racing, and motorcycles and motorcyclists only make it to mainstream media when there is a death or crime involved. The sources for this are always going to be very specific to the sport. The sources are not, however, directly connected to the event or promotors and are in fact, independently written.

The 404 reference was deleted (it was probably the worst puff piece of all of the references anyway, but it appeared in Money/CNN so it lended some (false) credibility).

I have checked with three well-known editors in the motorcycle enthusiast press industry (namely Brian Catterson, Nick Ienatsch, and Paul Seredynski--Cycle World, Motorcyclist, Cycle News, Sport Rider, Edmunds, and MSN Autos among their positions) and each of them have had no major edits to the Wikipedia article.

Thank you for reviewing the article, and I'm looking forward to having it approved for publication.

John

Van Robichaux[edit]

Can you help me? I'm getting slaughtered here. None of my citations seem to be good enough. Sonicfan1997 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:53, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

@Sonicfan1997: I've looked at Draft:Van Robichaux and edited where possible; I think it's a good start but I haven't been able to find many sources that do more than mention Van Robichaux (e.g. "screenwriters are..."). I've added a few details where there *was* significant coverage; but these are rather limited and for a screenwriter I think more is needed before the article gets moved out of the draft space. I'd suggest continuing to work on it (and note that it should get edits every 6 months to avoid deletion; there's more information under Wikipedia:Drafts.

Thanks for your comment on Draft: Pandorabots[edit]

Thanks for your comment! I'm searching for and trying to add more sources that seem to be mostly or exclusively about the company. Does this type of piece meet the criteria? http://www.sfweekly.com/sanfrancisco/ask-me-anything-having-a-forced-conversation-with-an-artificial-intelligence/Content?oid=2827569

Many of the books included devote entire chapters to Pandorabots (that is noted in most cases, but may be non-obvious from the citations). Should articles that only devote a paragraph to the company (but still serve as a source for an assertion in the article) be removed due to potential confusion on subject matter, or simply supplemented with further sources?

Please don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything else I can do to improve the article while review is pending. Thanks again. Botxpert (talk) 22:57, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Pandorabots

@Botxpert: yes, that seems to have mainly coverage of Pandorabots. I'd suggest that you first delete all references that are NOT specifically about Pandorabots: it is confusing at this point to have assertions about anything else, or those sources. Delete all content of ANY sort that is not specifically about Pandorabots. Regarding the books: Specify chapters and chapter titles if that will help clarify. Try to make the reviewer's job easier. And feel free to ping me when you have a *substantial* revision that incorporates these sorts of changes if you'd like me to take a look then. Hope that helps a little bit and thanks for persisting!

01:49:20, 26 January 2016 review of submission by Chinafashionguide[edit]


I am writing concerning the review of my draft "Helen Lee (Chinese fashion designer)". I have deleted the WWD reference, however The Forbes and Vogue articles are used to support the fact that Chinese consumers are opening up to local designer brands, not Helen Lee specifically (this is what the content of the articles is). If you still don't find them relevant, I can delete them, but I find them quite informational.

@Chinafashionguide: The main problem at this point is to show very clearly that Helen Lee is notable per WP:Creative. From that perspective, the Forbes and Vogue articles are distracting. Does that make sense? Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 02:44, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft Hetherington[edit]

I have deleted a number of references - at least twelve I think and some wording. My aim has been to prove notability not least by showing that he is in demand from solo to orchestral work etc. I hope I have gone far enough. Thank you Balquhidder2013 (talk) 16:11, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft Hetherington[edit]

Jodi

I have now deleted quite a few more. I'm worried now about verification for some concerts. I don't suppose it's possible to have a 'further verification' section at the end where additional listings etc could go. That would be beneficial for this type of subject. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 19:26, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

@Balquhidder2013: I've taken a look through. You'll see I made a number of edits to delete parts. It is getting better but it still reads like a laundry list. The goal of the article is not to document every concert or even city/country where he has performed. So far there are mainly event listings with a few reviews; which of the criteria at Wikipedia:Notability_(music)#Criteria_for_musicians_and_ensembles are clearly met? It is hard to tell based on the current draft at Draft:Feargus_Hetherington. Have you looked at example articles, for instance at Candida Thompson or Daniel Hope (violinist) or Marta Canales? Or the entire category: Category:Classical violinists by nationality? It's fine if the article is short, and better if it is shorter rather than over-detailed. Let me know if you need further suggestions. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 05:18, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Revised Draft Hetherington[edit]

Jodi

I've looked at the biogs you mentioned. Unfortunately the careers they followed are very different to the one in question. I've also noticed that these and other musicians' biogs do not have points verified which I thought was essential.

I've made many changes and I would be grateful if you would let me know what you think. As for a citation for the Roxburgh Quartet, would their current website listing of previous concerts but not players's names be of any use? http://www.roxburghquartet.com/concerts. I've added a different link but I'm not sure which is best or if any is acceptable. I'm still trying to track down dates for a couple of other quotes - I've mislaid the newspaper cuttings from which they were taken - that or they didn't have the date.

I would be grateful for further comment. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 12:11, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

{Ping|Balquhidder2013} maybe there are other classical musicians with a similar career who have articles? It's not that it's unimportant to cite and make verifiable certain information: it's rather that if there is too much detail it can be hard to see the article's core. Again, look to the criteria: there are 12 points at Wikipedia:Notability_(music)#Criteria_for_musicians_and_ensembles. Musicians are expected to meet one of these criteria in order to justify creating a biographical article about them. Can you tell me WHICH of those 12 points is met? The main point of the article, at this point, should be to show which criterion is met. Anything extra should probably be deleted. I will make a note to take another look again soon, to see if I can give more directed feedback! Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 14:27, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft Hetherington[edit]

Thank you again. I have from the beginning tried to prove notability on the basis of diversity in his career. No criteria matches perfectly but surely that doesn't disprove notability? Very few suit classical music. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 15:02, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft Hetherington[edit]

Jodi

I have looked again at the criteria. I consider he meets 1, 6, 7 (for St Andrews & Glasgow) and 12. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 15:10, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

I suggest that 1 is the best criteria for it. I'm not able to find sufficient verification for the others. With 7 the only radio programme I can still track down is the one given (Classics Unwrapped). There have been many over the years with Radio Scotland as well as OHIO local radio, Polish, BBC Ulster, and BBC3 - but dates and programmes are impossible to track down. I mentioned these in an early draft but I was told a citation was needed!

By the way The Herald review is very important. The Herald is Scotland's main broadsheet and the one which reviews all major classical concerts, The Scotsman comes next. After that probably The Courier. Others don't review classical music or are mainly tabloids.

I would be grateful if you would let me know what you think of it now. If I delete much more then I'm not really describing the subject in a fair way.

Many thanks for your help. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 10:55, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Award verification[edit]

Jodi

I've just seen your comment. Unfortunately this was the only evidence Creative Scotland could produce. A kind helper in the Teahouse fixed them up for me. The Musicians Benevolent Fund state that they never issue evidence of Funding etc and The Caird Trust confirmed two payments but they only post online awards for the past ten years. So that was as far as I could go.

I had earlier named some world class teachers he studied with but without online verification I had to delete them. He studied with Liz Layton who is now in Australia, James Buswell, Joseph Swensen etc - all very impressive but ...

I'll watch out for more comments. In the meantime, many thanks. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 20:32, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

That's fine, note that it's not necessary for this to be comprehensive. I'll be looking further later tonight.Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 20:36, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
That's very kind of you. Thanks. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 20:46, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Hello, Jodi.a.schneider. I notice that you updated Draft:Feargus Hetherington to remove the citations which supported the "Creative Scotland" awards, without any justification. I have reverted that edit to put the references back, since it is not at all clear why you removed them. Your comment said "rm 2 Excel sheets (maybe there's another version of this info?)" - am I to infer that you think there is some problem with this simply because they are spreadsheets? If so, then I beg to differ: the {{cite web}} template specifically provides support for Excel spreadsheets. Or was there some other difficulty with them? --Gronk Oz (talk) 00:16, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
That revert is fine @Gronk Oz:. I think that people generally don't want to be sent to documents to download (just as we limit the number/size of videos that we link to). Personally I don't see why this information is so important about the subject that it should be included: personally my inclination would be to delete the cited statements if they are not citable to something other than a download. Of course, other judgements on this (like yours) are fine. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 00:43, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying that, Jodi.a.schneider. I agree that the information is marginal in the first place - generally I am in favour of listing awards because they convey an independent assessment of the subject's importance in their field, but in this case they were quite minor grants.--Gronk Oz (talk) 05:57, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft Hetherington[edit]

Jodi

Thanks again for comments. Re CDs: these sold very well for niche market titles. Unfortunately the Record company folded when financial support was withdrawn. See http://www.naturalstudiorecords.com/ . Should I re-instate this link? Two at least on this list are famous classical guitarists - Alan Neave is very well known http://www.classicalmusiciansscotland.com/artists/allan-neave/ and Matthew McAllister (Feargus's Maelasta duo partner) http://www.matthewmcallister.com/bio/ is involved in guitar festivals worldwide. I'm happy to remove the Accordion links.

The Scotsman Sherlock Violin Review. Back to this. "The mellow, earthy tones of the instrument were well suited to the quicksilver preludio from JS Bach's Partita in E major … The telepathic, dance-like interaction between the two musicians … This close attunement was particularly apparent in the duo's exquisite arrangement of Ronald Stevenson's A'e Gowden Lyric, after Hugh MacDiarmid's poem, with a nod to Burns along the way". It's not very often that the performance itself gets much coverage. Reviewers often just dwell on the repertoire.

The Edinburgh Spotlight review is an a very substantial review. This online magazine is highly respected and used, especially at the Edinburgh Festivals time. The Courier one on the Bruch Concerto also is.

I am aware that there have been many substantial reviews over the years but they are no longer online (if they ever were). I think it's just a few years since newspapers began placing reviews online here. I've got hold of numerous early cuttings but they are mainly undated.

I will look later at your comments again but I don't think there's much I can do. Many thanks again. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 09:17, 29 January 2016 (UTC) Balquhidder2013 (talk) 10:32, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Jodi. I've looked again at the Scotsman Maelasta review. There's a fair bit in it: The mellow, earthy tones of the instrument were well suited to the quicksilver preludio from JS Bach's Partita in E major … The telepathic, dance-like interaction between the two musicians … This close attunement was particularly apparent in the duo's exquisite arrangement of Ronald Stevenson's A'e Gowden Lyric, after Hugh MacDiarmid's poem, with a nod to Burns along the way. Perhaps I should leave it? Balquhidder2013 (talk) 10:10, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

@Balquhidder2013: You would just need full citations: Nothing has to be online. Some libraries have digitized newspapers that can be searched in private databases (that are on the web but not publicly available); Local libraries would have microform of the major papers. I agree that there's *some* coverage in these reviews, and I think it *just* passes the bar of notability (based on what's here). At a gestalt level the article reads like it was written and then sourced -- depending on significant personal knowledge. It's nothing that a rewrite by an experienced editor couldn't solve. In a sense, the article feels unbalanced. There is a Wikipedia:WikiProject Classical music: on their Talk page you could post a message asking for help editing the article and further feedback from experienced Wikipedia editors who care about and frequently edit about classical music.Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 13:03, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Jodi. And again thanks. I hadn't thought of libraries. That will take some time as our local library is out of action because of major redevelopments. Perhaps I could visit the Edinburgh Music Library but not for some days or weeks. If it is rejected is it still saved? I could watch out for future reviews. In the meantime I've left a message on the Classical Music site.Balquhidder2013 (talk) 15:23, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

@Balquhidder2013: There's no rush and no deadline. "Rejected" from AfC just means that whoever is reviewing doesn't think that the article is ready for the Mainspace yet. As long as the Draft article is edited once every 6 months, the default is for it to stay indefinitely. So don't panic! Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 01:15, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Jodi. Great. Thanks. That's a relief. Have a good day. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 08:55, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Balquhidder2013:, the changes on Draft:Feargus Hetherington seem to be going in the right direction.

Questions[edit]

Jodi. I'm sorry to bother you again but there are some issues that I find perplexing. You rightly suggested that I look through biog entries for other contemporary violinists and I did so. I was also told along the way somewhere that not everything needs to be verifiable. However. I've had since the beginning of my efforts with the Hetherington biog had bits and pieces deleted over and over again because I couldn't verify them. Now, looking through biogs of other violinists it is usual to mention the name of teachers and the links to those teachers inevitably do not mention the subjects name. My first attempt at this led to deletion when Hetherington was not named on the wiki page (or web page) of the teachers in question. It's not just here but virtually every concert programme biog will indicate who the performer studied with. It seems to be one of these important factors. Other deletions were names of countries abroad where he performed and radios or programmes on which he appeared. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caroline_Campbell#cite_ref-4 This person studied where he did. Even since it was uploaded bits have been deleted, e.g. and interesting interview with him. There is a much duller interview on the site just mentioned. Is there anything I can do about these issues? Balquhidder2013 (talk) 15:55, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi again, @Balquhidder2013:. The best thing you can do for the Feargus Hetherington article is to stop editing it for awhile. Other editors are trying to improve the article. I see that your edits so far have only been to this article and to talk pages (if similar to mine, also related to this one article). Why not edit some other, existing articles? Everything going on here is normal, run-of-the-mill editing, and you shouldn't take it personally. Of course, other articles could be better referenced as well! (The Caroline Campbell article looks well-referenced on the whole: are you pointing out that they're using liner notes as a reference? Or something else? I removed one section that was referenced just to two websites closely associated with her. That page has similar issues with marginal notability in my opinion.) PS - It's important to distinguish: Wikipedia articles are NOT blog entries. They're encyclopedia articles. Maybe that's some of the confusion? Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 15:13, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
I think the OP said "biog entries" not "blog entries ". (Difficult to spot the difference in a san serif font.) - David Biddulph (talk) 15:46, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you David Biddulph and apologies, Balquhidder2013 for my misreading! Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 16:27, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Questions[edit]

Jodi

I twice tried to reply but each time my reply didn't register on your site. Here's another attempt at it.

Thanks Jodi. I suppose I shouldn't pester you. My point about Caroline Campbell was really in relation to her teachers at The Cleveland Institute of Music and naming places - not the article overall. My main point is that it should be permitted to name prominent teachers as most wiki-listed violinists have done. Why can't Hetherington's teachers at the Cleveland Institute of Music be named? Or those in Scotland? And elsewhere? Where you studied and who you studied with can establish the 'credibility' of performers (I believe - otherwise why is it the norm on programme notes to name former teachers?). My article originally referred to high profile violinists/teachers but these were deleted a few times over and I was accused of name-dropping at one point. I can't see how there can be one rule for one and another for others. Yes, the Teahouse has been very helpful and I understood from there that not everything needed to be verified. Unfortunately I didn't receive any reply to my Classical Music Forum request (which you suggested). See this listed violinist which, I am sure, had I used as a model, I would have got no-where: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christina_%C3%85strand. As an encyclopedia article (and a Wikipedia article in particular) I feel strongly that it should reflect the career and achievements of the subject. My article at present doesn't do that and in my view I have let the subject down. The pasted notice about notability on the article is very disconcerting and demeaning to the subject. As more reviews come along I hope to resolve that issue. Is it possible to have this removed? (I'm aware that you didn't post it). Yes, I intend editing some others (once I've recovered from this one) but I have a couple of quotes which I removed at the last minute and which I can now verify to insert first. I'm sorry to bother you. You have been extremely helpful. Balquhidder2013 (talk) 18:49, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Balquhidder2013:. Wikipedia is a work in process, so try not to get frustrated. If a newspaper article (or similar) lists a person as a student of so-and-so, it is reasonable to include it in the article. I agree that the it is difficult to use other articles as a source. Regarding Christina Åstrand: This sentence is very well-sourced: "She began to play the violin when she was four at Aarhus Folk Music School where she was first taught for two years by Tove Detreköy and thereafter for a further two years by her husband Bela Detrekov who specialized in Hungarian music." If you look at the reference about 1 sentence later, it goes to a Danish encyclopedia. Translated (with Google), we see the teachers mentioned: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=da&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kvinfo.dk%2Fside%2F170%2Fbio%2F1673%2F
It helps to have some detachment from the subject! Are you interested in other Scottish musicians? Other violinists? Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 16:21, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Scottish violinists etc[edit]

Dear Jodi

I've just returned from holiday to see a message highlighted - dated 10th April - as far as I can make out. You ask if I'm interested in other Scottish musicians. I am indeed. Since submitting Feargus Hetherington I have been much more successful with a couple of others - Opera Bohemia and Joseph Swensen (not Scottish but important here). I have also edited a couple of composers, Gareth Williams and Eddie McGuire which I hope to do some more work on. Have you someone in mind? I thought of cellist Robert Irvine but I haven't researched him yet. It is good to hear from you.Balquhidder2013 (talk) 10:56, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Hobson v. Hansen[edit]

I was hoping you could clarify your comment on the Draft:Hobson v. Hansen. You said,"It is worth naming references. There are examples in the history/diff, e.g. ref name=hurwitz:285-6". I wasn't able to follow you. Thanks. Mitchumch (talk) 18:24, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Mitchumch: sorry to be using too much slang there. I mean, for example, <ref name=hurwitz>Emanuel Hurwitz, “''Hobson v. Hansen'' Summary,” in ''Criticism, Conflict, and Change: Readings in American Education'' (New York: Dodd, Mead & Co., 1970).</ref>{{rp|271}} By "name" I mean, the name inside the ref tags: <ref name=hurwitz></ref>. One effect is that in the bibliography, that item gets a list (abcd....) which links back to the uses inline. For more editing tips related to this, see Wikipedia:Citation_templates#Using_the_same_footnote_multiple_times and Help:Footnotes#WP:REFNAME. Hope that helps!Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 02:13, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
To make sure I understand you, you're advocating for using the above citation format on other references throughout the article? Mitchumch (talk) 10:54, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
@Mitchumch: Yes, to show where the same reference is being used multiple times. This makes it much easier to review an article and is much nicer for readers as well.Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 13:18, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Mitchumch (talk) 13:30, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Re: Draft:Thomas Morrissey (athlete)[edit]

NoelPRoy (talk) 16:50, 9 June 2016 (UTC)== Re: Draft:Thomas Morrissey (athlete) ==

Thanks for your three comments. I've made what modifications I could. On your comments:

1. Thanks for the URL. I changed the two newspaper references so that they point to public sources.

2. At the time, race results were published by 1/5 seconds, probably reflecting the precision of the timing instruments of the day. Today, times for distance races are rounded up to the full second, which is what sports-reference.com has done. Derderian appears to have rounded to the nearest second (downward). Any of these can be defended. I've changed the time to reflect what was originally reported.

3. All the Ancestry references are from public sources, but not online. I've replaced the ancestry reference with detailed citation information from the archival sites, but kept the ancestry URL's for those who have access. Alternatively, the URLs can be deleted.

NoelPRoy (talk) 16:50, 9 June 2016 (UTC)NoelPRoy

@NoelPRoy: Super, thanks for your work on this page! :) I appreciate the explanation about race results: I learned something! And it's great to have fuller references for the older public sources, thanks for that! Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 14:57, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
