Regarding Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Lyna Galliara[edit]

I'm a bit busy today, but I'm glad to do a quick review of the article. It looks pretty good, for a first attempt. I only have a few things that are important to clean up at this point.

  • External links vs. Wikilinks: Wikipedia uses what are called "wikilinks" to link to other articles within Wikipedia. What you're doing is using "external links" to make those same links. To make a "wikilink" use double brackets. For example type [[Mercury Prize]] to link to Mercury Prize. The way you are doing it is like leaving through the front door, walking around the house, and then coming in the back door to get to the kitchen. Help:Link has more information on various types of links at Wikipedia.
  • Quality, in depth sources: Scanning through the source material for the article, you've got quite a few very short reviews from a small number of DJs and the like. Keep trying to find better source material, the more in depth the source material; that is longer reviews by respected music critics; interviews with the artist, biographical articles written about her, the better. What you have right now is a lot of really short, one- or two-sentence blurbs about one of her songs. That's fairly borderline in terms of establishing that she is a notable artist. If she is a notable artist, then reliable sources should cover her in some depth. I don't see much of that yet.

That's what I have so far. Good luck, and if you need more help, let me know! --Jayron32 14:46, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

You previously declined this article due to there not being many links to reliable sources, other than the BBC's website. I have now added links to Lyna's tracks which are featured on NME's website.
