Guidance on notability[edit]

Text-x-authors Gion.svg

Hi Poderedellaluna,

Wikipedia has its own guidance for notability that may not be the same as your intuitive sense of what is notable. Wikipedia is an encyclopaedia of general knowledge rather than an index of profiles of companies and people. Each article needs several independent reliable sources to show significant impact on the historical record. The guidance for organizations is given at WP:ORG, for biographies WP:BIO applies and for all types of article here are general criteria at WP:GNG.

If the articles you are creating have reliable sources to support the criteria defined in that guidance then you may have a reason to keep the articles from being deleted which you are welcome to raise on the article talk page or on any linked deletion discussion. If you are associated with the organization, person or product the article is about then you must follow the conflict of interest guidelines and avoid editing the article yourself but you are free to suggest and discuss changes.

Rather than starting "live" articles, you can create a draft first which allows you to get your article properly sourced before risking speedy deletion - see Userspace draft and Userfication.

If you would like some independent help you can ask one of the noticeboards at WP:Requests or try chatting with other Wikipedians on #wikipedia-en-help connect.

Thanks, (talk) 04:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Hi Poderedellaluna, you can find many images available to use on Wikipedia already uploaded by other contributors on Wikimedia Commons. The best way of uploading your own image or video is to go to Commons:Upload and follow the instructions. Uploaded files must be public domain or creative commons with attribution, see the upload page for links to detailed explanations of what these terms mean. Once uploaded to Commons, images can be shown in Wikipedia and any of the sister projects in the normal way (see Wikipedia:Picture tutorial).

Additional points to note...
  1. Logging in - you have to have an account on Commons, this may have already been created under the same name and password as your Wikipedia account, see Special:MergeAccount.
  2. Copyright - if the copyright of the photo is owned by someone else and there is no existing free license to reference (for example on their website), then you need to follow the Commons:OTRS process and confidentially supply an email from the copyright holder. If you think your photo is public domain but want to check the rules that apply then see WP:RFCA and List of countries' copyright length.
  3. Email a photo - see Wikipedia:Contact us/Photo submission. You should note that there may be a long backlog and your email may take days or weeks before getting processed. If you seem technically able, you may get a polite request to do it yourself as this is a low priority for the OTRS volunteers.
  4. EXIF data - image data may be automatically added by the camera or by your photo processing applications. This will be visible after upload so make sure you are happy that the make of camera, when/where it was taken etc. will be consistent with your upload information.
  5. Image verification - the photo can be checked using TinEye after upload, so if it appears on websites which claim 'All rights reserved' or similar then it may get marked for deletion.

A simple standard guide is at Help:Files. If you need more help on getting a suitable photo in the first place, you may find Finding images tutorial helpful. Thanks, (talk) 04:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

How to add footnotes[edit]

Footnotes can be added inline to the body of your text using <ref> tags. An example looks like:

JavaScript is used on webpages today.<ref>Smith, John (2005), ''JavaScript 101'', ISBN 938223445333</ref>

And the resultant text would look like: JavaScript is used on webpages today.1

With the superscript 1 being a link to a footnote at the bottom of the page automatically created by inserting the code: {{reflist}}

An easy to follow standard guide is at WP:Referencing for beginners with citation templates and a primer for general editing is at WP:How to edit a page (concise). Thanks, (talk) 04:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
