Draft:عبدالجليل الأربش[edit]

Hi Nthep. Regarding the above, the procedure for translating articles applies to those in the mainspace only, not drafts. For what it is worth the page is a memorial to somebody killed in the explosion described in the linked article--Jac16888 Talk 21:59, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Everything Before Us[edit]

Since you moved Everything Before Us to Draft:Everything Before Us, saying the it wasn't ready for the mainspace, I thought I'd let you know that the author has recreated the article in the mainspace. — JJMC89(T·E·C) 19:55, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

It is back again. — JJMC89(T·E·C) 20:07, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for answering my Teahouse question so quickly. Your answer worked like a charm. I appreciate the time and energy you put in at the Teahouse. Best Regards,

Franklin Road Academy[edit]

Nthep. You suggested that I setup a sandbox for review on a page. I've done so and was wondering if you could review and approved. My sandbox is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Comptonsteven/sandbox/Franklin_Road_Academy Thanks in advance. Steve [[Comptonsteven (talk) 03:38, 24 June 2015 (UTC)]]

@Comptonsteven:, this looks to be pretty much the same as you amended the article to be. I'm sorry to say it still reads like an advert - for example the number of times it says "we . . . " and it is completely unreferenced except to the schools own web site and social media outlets. Does it help if I remind you that Wikipedia is for articles about subjects, not by them. What is needed is what other have written about the school, not what the school says about itself. Nthep (talk) 14:55, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Nthep, I agree with some of what you are saying. However, please consider that according to Wikipedia, that it's purpose is to benefit readers by acting as an encyclopedia, a comprehensive written compendium that contains information on all branches of knowledge[1]. What I'm trying to do is to make sure that what is on the page is a factual reflection of the programs and academic makeup of the school based on the idea to provide such knowledge (much like an encyclopedia). I actually made the original Wiki page years ago and a lot has changed in the makeup of the school since that time. This is consistent with other schools on other WikiPedia pages and just contains facts about the makeup of the academy. So, I hope I'm not too far off. I hope you consider again this viewpoint. 17:13, 25 June 2015 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Comptonsteven (talkcontribs)

Steve, I agree with the purpose but this has to be backed up by establishing that information presented is written in a neutral tone, non-promotional and is verifiable by reliable, authoritative and independent sources. Your draft doesn't really manage any of these and it mostly a rehash of the school's website. While the website is ok to use as a source for a limited set of information e.g. straightforward factual information like the location, principal's name it should not be used as a source for anything else. To put the objection in it's rawest state - for every claim made on the page, verify it with a citation from a reliable, independent source. Otherwise all we have is the school's own opinion of itself which is almost inevitably biased - consciously or unconsciously. Nthep (talk) 16:34, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

How did you figure out which draft it was? Just curious. - NQ (talk) 20:28, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Never mind, I'm an idiot. - NQ (talk) 20:33, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

The Clan Sunyol logo you where complaining about is not registered anywhere, I know this is I co-designed to logo.

Best Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArvinKH (talkcontribs) 10:37, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

@ArvinKH: The moment the logo was created also created a copyright on it, copyright registration is not necessary in most countries. As it has been published on a website, evidence is needed that the copyright holder(s) agree to it being used elsewhere. Please see WP:CONSENT for the process to follow to enable this.
