Help in creating new articles[edit]

Hi Anastasia,

Marcus here, and I would like to seek some help from you. Recently, I stumbled upon the articles 'Clet Abraham' and 'So You Want to Write a Fugue?' in Wikipedia but sadly, there are no English versions to it. I wish to create an English page for both but I had never create an article before. I have read Wikipedia:Your first article but I still need your help to monitor my progress and to give me some advice. I'll probably start work on 'So You Want to Write a Fugue?' first.

Many Thanks! ~ Marcus1093 (talk) 13:26, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

@Marcus1093: Great! I'll definitely keep an eye on you and help out if you need anything :) Good luck! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 19:27, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
Well, my article is done and you can take a look at it at my Sandbox here. If you think it's ok, I'll upload it. ~ Marcus1093 (talk) 12:36, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
@Marcus1093: Have you checked the copyright status of the lyrics? ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 23:13, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
The lyrics is found in the German version, so I assume it's usable. ~ Marcus1093 (talk) 14:46, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
@Marcus1093: Assuming stuff about copyright is always shaky ground; you should do some more research in that area. Other than that your article looks good to go. Nice job! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 22:12, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
Meanwhile as the article is being reviewed, is it possible to use my sandbox? ~ Marcus1093 (talk) 09:22, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
@Marcus1093: I don't understand exactly what you mean, but the preferred location for AfC submissions is draft userspace; I see someone from the reviewing team has already moved it there. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 15:05, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
After being rejected twice for addition, I feel that I should let you do some vetting before I submit my article. ~ Marcus1093 (talk) 11:17, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
@Marcus1093: Basically, the article needs to cite some more good sources to show that it is well covered in the media, and therefore notable. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 20:50, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
There's not much for me to add and the article looks complete to me. I'll submit it once you think it's ready. ~ Marcus1093 (talk) 06:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
@Marcus1093: The only other source you've added to the article so far is the music itself. This is not enough to fulfill the WP:Golden rule and if you submit it now, it will just be rejected again for the same reason as before. If there are no more sources you can add, I'm just going to tell you straight up: this music is not yet notable enough for its own article. If this is the case, my advice to you is to move on to creating another article on which sources can be more easily found. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 16:08, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

about Robert cowell[edit]

he is a racehorse trainer, what references do I need to provide — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrick bartram 1 (talkcontribs) 17:09, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

@Patrick bartram 1: Some references you could add to make the article more reliable would be newspaper or magazine articles (online or in print) mentioning him or about him. Books can also be cited on Wikipedia; all of these kinds of sources will help show that Cowell is notable and worthy of a Wikipedia article. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 20:59, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

philosophical riddle[edit]

Hi Anastasia Yesterday I tried to create and article with the following text:

== Green Movement ==

"The Green movement" is a term for a social movement that feeds Green politics.

Like any other movement (e.g., feminism), the Green movement has the following features: - participants join by self-identification: saying you're a Green makes you one - it influences social behaviour, e.g. association, consumption, education, politics, religion - it is founded on philosophy, i.e., discussion and reflection

The Green movement exists because members idealize their role as agents for the preservation of humankind in symbiotic harmony with the ecological systems of Earth, which they view as threatened by non-Greens to such an extent that it may become uninhabitable for our species.

Non-Greens may thus be defined as people who live as though human behaviour will not lead to the extinction of our species. An extreme example would be those who believe that very small numbers of people could survive on Earth if technological means were found to create localized conditions that sustain human life--e.g. domed cities.

(end of text for the new article)

Your colleague, GrammarFascist, recommended adding citations. That doesn't seem too daunting. If I tinker in my Sandbox, will someone get back to me?

I welcome your encouragement or advice.

(talk page stalker) Hello again, jme. You can certainly use your user sandbox to draft articles or sections of articles. Then, when you feel you're ready for feedback, you can visit Wikipedia:Teahouse again. (Other editors wouldn't necessarily know to go check out your sandbox otherwise.) Or, if you believe there is enough unique content to justify Green movement having its own article separate from Green politics, you could create a draft at Wikipedia:Articles for creation and submit it when you think it's ready; submitting drafts there leads to a thorough review by an experienced editor, though the turnaround time between submitting a draft and the draft being reviewed is often a week or more due to backlog. Don't hesitate to return to the Teahouse if you have any further questions. —GrammarFascist contribstalk 15:56, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you GrammarFascist! jme Mccullochker (talk) 17:14, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

@Mccullochker: I agree with GrammarFascist :) Another thing you can do to make your article better is to remove the informal and biased tone. Really long sentences, phrases such as "like any other movement", and "Non-Greens may thus be defined", make the article seem unprofessional and are not going to help it pass review. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 18:56, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome message[edit]

Textual Comment Speedy Deletion[edit]

I am user bmars12 & I'd like to know more on why my articles is up for speedy deletion. I'm not understanding. Bmars12 (talk) 02:48, 10 November 2015 (UTC)bmars12

Hi Bmars12! Your article was put up for speedy deletion because the topic of the article you created has already been covered at Women's Action Coalition. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 15:20, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Draft:Creepy Clyde[edit]

Hi Anastasia. Back in September, I attempted to post an entry on Crepy Clyde, a scary movie tv host, actor and musician in metro Detroit. Yes, Clyde (real name Keith Brown) is my brother. But I am a journalist, and thought it would be right to see if he could gain a Wikipedia listing. Clyde plays all around town, has done a great job as a featured actor at Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theater in nearby Chelsea, Mich., and has appeared on TV in various capacities as Creepy Clyde. He is a frequent public performer, as a solo singer-guitarist-keyboardist and with his band. He is quite unique. Could you be specific at what you need me to do to make Creepy Clyde's submission acceptance-worthy? Here is a link to the earlier response to my first submission:

Also--in the third paragraph, last complete line of the paragraph, there is a stray "f" character after the comma--that can come out.

Thanks for taking a minute! Please let me know you've received this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:11, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

@ Hi again! First things first, it is not generally a good idea to create articles on Wikipedia about people you are attached to; lots of problems can arise with bias. But aside from that, for your article to be worthy of Wikipedia, you must cite several reputable sources about Clyde showing that he is notable enough to be included. If you can't find any sources, that means that Clyde isn't quite notable for his own article yet, and you may have to wait until he gains more coverage in the media to create his article.
FYI, you should sign all your posts on talk pages with 4 tildes (Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 14:49, 22 November 2015 (UTC)). This will leave your username and the date. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 14:49, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
