2020 articles[edit]

Nice work on the 2020 election articles, don't want to seem like I am trying to infringe on your work, I created Pennsylvania and South Carolina because of my connections to those two states. Nice work on the Marriott strike article as well!--MainlyTwelve (talk) 17:49, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

@MainlyTwelve: Thanks, I appreciate your help. Thank you for adding the Elections WikiProject tags and expanded many of the articles. Your creation of the Pennsylviania and South Carolina articles looks good. MarkZusab (talk) 19:21, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Russell the Sheep moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Russell the Sheep, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. Furthermore, please ensure that you do not closely paraphrase sources without attribution, as was done here. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

@DannyS712: Would you mind telling me how the article could be improved? It contains no unreferenced information and uses several reliable and independent sources. Additionally the "close paraphrasing" without attribution you show is actually quotations within the article under the Reception section. (e.g. The New York Times stated ".......").MarkZusab (talk) 02:22, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@MarkZusab: it is referenced, but it also appears that you may have copied or paraphrased the content form a different source that you didn't cite (Barnes and Noble). Furthermore, the sources don't seem to demonstrate that the book is notable, but rather that it just recieved reviews. I suggest either citing the B&N page or rephrasing the reception section, as well as filling in the plot. --DannyS712 (talk) 02:29, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712:I did not use the Barnes and Noble website while creating this article and I'm having a hard time finding any possible sentences that could have been close paraphrased in the article. Additionally, per WP:NBOOK, a book is notable if "The book has been the subject of two or more non-trivial published works appearing in sources that are independent of the book itself. This can include published works in all forms, such as newspaper articles, other books, television documentaries, bestseller lists, and reviews. This excludes media re-prints of press releases, flap copy, or other publications where the author, its publisher, agent, or other self-interested parties advertise or speak about the book."

Then I apologize. I shouldn't have moved it, and you are welcome to move it back. Sorry --DannyS712 (talk) 02:51, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712:Thank you for apologizing and understanding. I was unable to move the page back to the same title, but I moved it to Russell the Sheep (book) and requested a technical move at Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests. MarkZusab (talk) 03:02, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Ways to improve Opinion polling for the 2020 Republican Party presidential primaries[edit]

Hello, MarkZusab,

Thanks for creating Opinion polling for the 2020 Republican Party presidential primaries! I edit here too, under the username Boleyn and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:-

Please add your references.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Boleyn}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . For broader editing help, please visit the Teahouse.

Delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

Boleyn (→talk) 08:07, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

@Boleyn: The page does actually have references, listed in the tables under the "poll source" column. This style of citations is used in similar articles with opinion polling results, such as Opinion polling for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries. Another user has already removed the unreferenced tag. However, if you think that the citation style of using footnotes is better across polling articles, I would be happy to change them. MarkZusab (talk) 15:46, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah, sorry, MarkZusab. Personally I didn't spot them (probably just stupidity on my part) but other readers may also find it difficult. I don't know what the guidelines are on this way of referencing, but have no big objections. Boleyn (talk) 20:13, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

2018 Marriott Hotels strike[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you removed the CSD tag because you rewrote the text. In the future, please don't remove the CSD tag because, at minimum, administrators need to delete the revisions that hold the infringing text. I have added the copyvio tag back so that those revisions can be removed. Thank you. Citrivescence (talk) 13:37, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
