November 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Longhair. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Waleed Aly, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Longhair\talk 09:25, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for correcting this. Please note Wikipedia does not consider WP:DAILYMAIL as a reliable source. -- Longhair\talk 09:31, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Chiang family[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Chiang family has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

I've tagged this article which contains information about living persons for deletion under our guidelines on biographies of living persons, the reason is that it does not contain two or more citations, which is the bare minimum requirement for articles of its type

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

The alert above does not guarantee that it will be deleted if sources are added to justify why the people mentioned belong to the list according to WP:LISTPEOPLE. My main concern here is that you have placed a flag next to the people in the list, which implies that they collectively adhere to a political stance, ideology or idea that the flag represents and in my mind, according to our policies this requires verifiable sources on the page where the information is contained. I'm more than happy to help out if you have any questions. Many thanks Edaham (talk) 09:36, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

thanks can you help the page. Max.Moore (talk) 09:40, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I checked with a more experienced reviewer who decided that it does not require deletion and the tag has been removed. It would still be better to put some sources on this page though. Many thanks Edaham (talk) 09:52, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Third Turnbull Ministry[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Third Turnbull Ministry. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Second Turnbull Ministry. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Second Turnbull Ministry. If you have new information to add, you might want to discuss it at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, 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 deleted 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 19:02, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

As far as I can see, the only mention of a "Third Turbull Ministry" in a reliable source is this opinion piece in the SMH dated 16 July 2016. It is most certainly not a viable stand-alone article. The 20 December 2017 cabinet reshuffle you asserted as a third Turnbull Ministry was just that, a cabinet reshuffle, not a new Ministry. I have WP:REDIRECT-d it to Second Turnbull_Ministry#Fourth rearrangement
What do you think about this?
