See an issue needing an answer on my talk page that you could help with? Feel free to answer!

I will absolutely not respond to your comment unless you follow the following simple rules in placing a comment on my talk page.

  • 1)You have read my FAQ below and haven't asked a question answered by it.
  • 2)Appropriately post a new section (see button/link above) at the BOTTOM of the page
  • 3)Do not ask me to just generically fix your page without a specific question, I'm not interested in fixing everyone's page for them.
  • 4)You need to hyperlink to the page you are discussing, this is probably most important. If it's remotely difficult for me to figure out what page you're talking about, I'm not going to waste my time.

Sorry if those four things seem harsh, but I review and patrol hundreds of pages a day and can't keep up with all the replies.

FAQ You declined a page I submitted for AfC and have a question... If that question is directly answered by one of the hyperlinks posted after I reviewed it, I will not answer you. You'd be surprised how often it happens. The posted links are posted for a reason!

Why did you not leave a comment when you tagged my page? I typically won't unless I think the issue may be unclear. New page patrol is overwhelmed (~50,000 pages to be reviewed with only ~1000 being currently reviewed every week) and if I spent the time to explain every tag, I wouldn't be able to review even a third of the pages I do now.

I completely disagree with a tag you placed on my page!! If you disagree with a tag, please state why on the article's talk page and leave a note here for me to review it. If you think the tag was a blatant error on my part (it happens, sorry), then please revert the edit and leave me a message letting me know that was the case.

I don't see a conversation or message I posted on your talk page... Check the archives, conversations are typically automatically archived after five days. If you wish to comment on an archived section, please move it back to the main page. I do not regularly monitor my archive pages.

Why do you keep tagging my page? Do you have something against me? No. Occasionally after you address certain issues, more issues will arise on my re-review. For example, let's say I first tagged your page for having no references, after you add references I may go back and add a tag for no in-line citations (which would have been irrelevant before there were references). Also, if there are multiple, small issues with your page and I can see you're new, I might just tag a few things at a time instead of overwhelming a new user. Please do not take any of my tags personally. I do not target people. I go straight down the list on the new page patrol. I do however regularly watch pages I review, which is why you might see me come up often in edits on your page.

Will you help me fix issues you tagged on my page? Typically not, unless I need a break from new page patrol. Why? I used to do this and it got to be very overwhelming. I feel the actual new page patrol needs my help more than helping to fix things on already existing pages (not to mention there's others much more qualified than me for most fixes suchs as categories, copyediting, etc). It doesn't hurt to ask though, but please do not be offended if I do not help or don't respond. The tea house is your friend, use it. Note: I will always clarify on tags, though. All in all,don't hope the house will build itself!

I would like to give you an award, thank you note, or barnstar... Thanks! You're awesome. And I always love the support. But please put it on my user page, not my talk page. :)


Road Recovery[edit]


You posted on that the comments about Gene Bowen need to be sourced and cited. All information about Gene Bowen was written by the man himself. How am I supposed to cite that?

Thank you

Roadrecovery (talk) 15:53, 22 July 2015 (UTC) That's fine just use the same source to cite each statement.Sulfurboy (talk) 20:46, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

How should I cite word of mouth? Roadrecovery (talk) 15:43, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Declined- What exactly is wrong with my inline citations?[edit]

Hi Sulfurboy, Thank you for reviewing my page As the person aboved me has requested, do you mind specifically telling me what's wrong with my inline citations? I ask just so I know I am doing the write thing before I go through the process of adding and editing again. The facts (awards, education, ect.) are backed up by the citations I have, so when you get a chance please let me know the mistake I've made. Thanks, Keelsh01 (talk) 19:46, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Looks like you fixed the citations. Good job. There is one more issues we have with PRs. Please see the page for mroe info. Sulfurboy (talk) 21:25, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Sulfurboy, I fixed the sources that used press releases and added more reliable sources. Let me know how it looks now! Keelsh01 (talk) 13:14, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
Hi Sulfurboy, I have worked diligently to fix both citation problems. Can you please approve my article or direct me otherwise? Thanks, Keelsh01 (talk) 14:43, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Done. Sulfurboy (talk) 14:46, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Hi, I'm Hippychickali. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Miloš Milovanović, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. Hippychick (talk) 22:17, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

What was the purpose in unreviewing it? Sulfurboy (talk) 00:37, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

00:42:21, 25 July 2015 review of submission by Milkeung[edit]

Thanks for your comments about the submission. We are revising the submission and deleted unnecessary sentences. It would be great if you can advise us further in this process.

Also, do Wikipedia usually accept submission about industry collaboration project, like this one? Such initiative is beneficial to industry participants.

Milkeung (talk) 00:42, 25 July 2015 (UTC) Who is we? Wikipedia accounts should not be shared in the manner you seem to be suggesting by what you said. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:32, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

02:57:43, 25 July 2015 review of submission by Oliver.D-56[edit]

Hello Sulfurboy,

I have tried to correct the page, based on your inputs. Thank you for the reviewing of it. Please, can you help with the editing of the info box? I've looked around Wikipedia to learn how to do it, but I didn't find it.

Best regards,

Oliver.D-56 (talk) 02:57, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

@Oliver.D-56: It seems the infobox is fixed now and the article is neat and sourced but I would still add more further sources you have to fully establish independent notability. SwisterTwister talk 06:23, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Fun School Discussion[edit]

Greetings, I should like an additional opinion based on the Fun School series at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fun School 6 . You may wish to examine the articles what with the recent edits I made to establish notability. Any concrete suggestions you can give would be highly appreciated. Deltasim (talk) 08:50, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

From what I can tell, the best case scenario is to merge them into one, well put together article. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:31, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Peter Dangerfield[edit]

I think I have made the required improvements for this article. Could you please review again. Thanks.Gomach (talk) 08:51, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

For maintence tags, you can remove them yourself if you feel the issue has been resolved. You don't need my permission. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:30, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

13:34:58, 26 July 2015 review of submission by Omeradam1993[edit]


Hello Sulfurboy, I don't understand why you have declined my request for "Maharan Frozenfar" Wikipedia page. I have added multiply sources about his career and his important rule in the Israeli Defence Forces. I have added various sources from: DefenseNews, Jerusalem Post, Reuters, Globes, Haaretz and more, and information taken from his offical website - All of these sources confirm that all the information is currect, and represet his notablity. Furthermore, Maharan already has a page in Wikipedia in Hebrew and in Persian, that consider the same content:

Please consider approve the request.

Thank you,

18:28, 26 July 2015 (UTC) Review of submission by Reaason[edit]

Thank you for reviewing my draft (twice) at

I'm trying to establish, whether I should keep working on it or not. Basically, I've read the notability criteria for musicians and ensembles and asked for advice at the Teahouse (my question) and I'm still not sure.

As far as I can see, the subject of my draft meets (at least) the criteria defined in sections 1, 2 and 11. Would you agree with this and is it enough in terms of notability?

As for the sources, I think the ones used in the article are some of the most independent and reliable in the Finnish and Swedish context. Was the lack of sources in English(?) the/a primary reason for the rejection? Anything else that contributed to that decision?

Thank you, have a good day! :) Reaason (talk) 18:28, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

What sections are you talking about? Sulfurboy (talk) 00:24, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
I was referring to the numbered items under notability criteria for musicians and ensembles. Thanks. Reaason (talk) 10:35, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
I disagree on 1 and 11, but it does pass 2. I'll approve it. Thanks. Sulfurboy (talk) 13:41, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

08:25:43, 27 July 2015 review of submission by[edit]

Hi there, thanks for reviewing the article. To be honest I am a bit disappointed it didn't meet the criteria since I read all the rules and spent quite a bit of time on the life chat making sure it stands a chance of being published.

The first time I submitted, I was told that the references weren't strong enough, so I replaced them with independent media ones compared to blogger references. I though media such as 'The Telegraph' and the 'Independent' are fairly strong testimonials. I am really confused of why they are still not good.

In terms of the writing style, I used other, similar articles as a guide and I thought that the language is neutral. However I will review it again to make sure there isn't any promotional voice.

Please could you give me some more guidance on these points so I can edit them and resubmit the article. Your support is much appreciated.

Best, Dorotea (talk) 08:25, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

13:20:12, 27 July 2015 review of submission by TCVCJ[edit]

You have thoroughly convinced me that this proposed article should be a paragraph in the already published piece on SR16! However, I hesitate to edit the piece as much as it would need to include the paragraph. And I'm not exactly sure how to do the inclusion - must it be in the same form as an original article with the references included in the body? I would sincerely appreciate your help!TCVCJ (talk) 13:20, 27 July 2015 (UTC) TCVCJ (talk) 13:20, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Feel free to edit away on your own. If something you do is in some way wrong it will eventually be caught by another editor. Good luck. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:13, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Hkb (talk) 13:48, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback. In terms of notability, Ros Schwartz has been awarded Legion d'honneur (from the French government) and various national prizes (UK), and I have put references to all of these. In terms of her contribution to the field, the best way to show this is by her publications and representation in important organisations.

Those things don't auto qualify someone for an article. Please review my comments that I already provided for what needs to be done. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:12, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

13:58:42, 27 July 2015 review of submission by[edit]

Hello Sulfurboy, could you please elaborate why the included footnotes do not meet the minimal standard for inline citations. Please not that there is also a general publications list in the article, but the citations to support the claims made in the article are provided as footnotes in the References section. (talk) 13:58, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

The biography section, which could be considered most contentious has no inline citations. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:11, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I've added a few inline citations to that section, please have a look if you have the chance. (talk) 14:39, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Approved. Sulfurboy (talk) 14:43, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

14:48:47, 27 July 2015 review of submission by[edit] (talk) 14:48, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

My submission was recently declined because it does not show the subjects notability. I was just curious what I could add to improve it because currently it includes articles from INC 500, Bloomberg, and Boulderopolis.

Thank you!

Copyright issues[edit]

Dear Sulfurboy,

Thank you for your message about the page I've tried to create for Janus Pannonius Poetry Prize. I have some copyright issues, I fully understand why it is problematic; however, I would like to ask whether it is possible to leave the page and its contents as it is now if I have the written support of the Hungarian PEN Club that proves that I can use the booklet and its contents to create the site? I can attach the letter for you to read anytime you wish! The link: Thank you again in advance, Franciska78 (talk)Franciska78

I cannot help you with that, you need to provide the sourcing and permission rights via the proper channel. I don't do CV material reviews. But yes, your draft is safe and won't be deleted before it can be reviewed. Thanks. Sulfurboy (talk) 00:09, 28 July 2015 (UTC)


Dear Sulpurboy,

When an new article is submitted in draft, does it present for review automatically, or do I have to do something? Please see the below link for my new article, for review. Also, since I am sure there are many persons performing reviews for Wikipedia, I was wondering if there was a way to have you review this article, since you have previous experience specific to CMM, from your previous reviews of articles of this nature. CMM Cybersecurity

Thank you in advance, Sean Connors --Sean p connors (talk) 17:56, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

You don't have the formatted AfC box on the page. Reread the AfC guidelines to find it. And then yes you need to manually submit it. However I can tell you right now your article would fail. It reads more like a brochureSulfurboy (talk) 23:56, 27 July 2015 (UTC) and is highly advertismal.

07:56:01, 28 July 2015 review of submission by Rye Giggs[edit]

Hi, Sulfurboy.

Thanks for your kindly review of the article, please share me more information about what kind of the references do we need to provide to verify the information, or can you tell me more about which information do we need to add reference to verify.

Thanks in advance!

Rye Giggs (talk) 07:56, 28 July 2015 (UTC) Reviews by software review sites aren't really considered to show notability, as they are routine and done for any piece of software. We need to see independent coverage of the impact of the software and why it is notable and important enough to be in an encyclopedia. Sulfurboy (talk) 13:48, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

03:43, 22 July 2015 review of Creative Mobile - Draft page by RadRacer20xx[edit]

Hi Sulfurboy - Thanks for looking at the article draft on Creative Mobile The article was not accepted due to This submission's references do not adequately show the subject's notability

I've made some edits and included more reference citations, can you review and make any further comments on how to improve the article for approval?

I believe everything should qualify for approval in comparison to articles for similar game studios: Halfbrick Studios, Kiloo, Backflip Studios, Rovio Entertainment

Thanks! User:RadRacer20xx 13:27, 28 July 2015‎

Press releases need to be removed. They are not considered credible sources. Further we need to see independent, substantial coverage of the company itself, not just articles that mention it in pass or as a routine mention due to the games. Sulfurboy (talk) 13:47, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick reply, I've removed the press releases and have included more references from independant / international media coverage regarding the company specifically. If there are no further corrections needed I will proceed to resubmit. RadRacer20xx 11:21, 30 July 2015‎

Can you clarify what 'Please clarify between the references and sources so we can confirm this custom.' means? This isn't readily evident - I can assure you (as a Scot), it's a long established custom, and I'm very happy to link to additional video footage if needbe.

Meaning you should combine and format the reference and sources section. Sulfurboy (talk) 14:36, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

15:11:10, 28 July 2015 review of submission by Cary.tanaka[edit]

As was already stated in a previous decline, you need to remove the press releases. Also the tone of the article needs to be neutral and formal which it is not. Reads more like a company's about page than an encyclopedic article. Sulfurboy (talk) 15:12, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Afternoon Sulfurboy. I got some help from the Wiki community and made a good amount of edits on the RW3 Technologies page. Looking forward to your comments.

Draft Question[edit]

Hi Sulfurboy,

When you need a break from new page patrol, can you please advise me on how to better improve my draft? I took your recommendation and created a sandbox draft for it:

If you have free time, can you please let me know how to better improve it? Sjane214 (talk) 19:09, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

To start, you need independent, reliable sources that show substantial coverage of the center. Also, remove the external links within the article and either add them to an exlinks section if they're directly relevant, or otherwise just scrap them. Sulfurboy (talk) 19:12, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the response Sulfurboy! I have created an External Links section and found sources. Here is the link to my draft: Once again, if you have time, can you please let me know if I fixed the link/reference/any other type of problem? I know you don't have to review this draft so thank you for the first response! Sjane214 (talk) 20:03, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

20:20:45, 28 July 2015 review of submission by Aabbott[edit]

Hi Sulfurboy. I added the awards that Monica Brown has received and two additional sources to try to prove her notability. Before I put in further edits, could you point me in the right direction? Do you need quotes from and links to book reviews from industry periodicals (Kirkus/PW)? I don't want to keep barking up the wrong tree, but I do think that Brown is a notable author.

Aabbott (talk) 20:20, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

The problem is the primary nature of the sources. The first two are interviews which aren't wholly independent. The third one is completely primary as it is written by the subject. The fourth for some reason I am unable to see. We need to see INDEPENDENT, substantial and reliable coverage. Sulfurboy (talk) 21:31, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Draft now has Exlinks section and sources[edit]

Thank you once again for the recommendations:) I have incorporated the exlinks section and added additional sources. Is there's anything else I can fix before I re-submit my draft so it can become an article once more?

Here's the link:

Hello there, would it be possible to give me some assistance with this ? Can you give me an example of where "The content of this submission includes material that does not meet Wikipedia's minimum standard for inline citations. " so that I can understand where I have gone wrong with my first article?

Many thanks for your help. Tim

Tim B Haigh (talk) 21:23, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Hey Tim, with biographies of living people we have very strict standards when it comes to inline citations. Particularly, we would like to see a citation for each individual claim (usually at the end of a sentence or point) made about the person. Obviously, you can reuse sources as needed, we don't need a different source for each claim, but we do need to know where to look to confirm the claim being made. Good luck.

Request on 01:34:51, 29 July 2015 for assistance on AfC submission by[edit]

Hello Sulfurboy, thanks for your comments. I have been working on making the Wiki page for the book and used content from the book website. As I am the author I thought it would be Ok to use content from there. I have been working hard to make the page neutral, but didn't expect a copyright issue to occur. Do you suggest I change the language on the Wiki page slightly in order to ensure the system doesn't think there is a copyright issue?

I did try to source and link any word-for-word language whenever I used it from Amazon or the book website. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KJacobi1121 (talkcontribs) 01:45, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Many thanks for your help through this process

Ken wiki: KJacobi1121 (talk) 01:34, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Everything should be written in your own words. If you are referencing your own words, as seems to be the case, you should go through the proper CV channels to ensure that the source can be used verbatim without issue. Further, wikipedia tries to avoid WP:COI, or conflicts of interest and encourage people to not write about things they are directly connected with for issues such as this. I would advise for full clarity to post on the talk page that you are the author. Sulfurboy (talk) 04:18, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

What exactly is the criteria for passage at AfC?[edit]

I have to say, this is a bit worrying; I've seen your name pop up in two rather disparate topic areas (reality television and American politics) because of AfCs you've marked as passing. The first was Big Brother 18 (U.S.), a future season of a current series that are routinely left as redirects until actual sources exist to say more than "it will air". I had to take it to AfD to enforce a redirect against serial revert-warring IPs and SPAs The second, today, is Alleged Clinton Controversies (also at AfD, where most of the input so far is to speedy delete because it is so egregiously policy-violating). I'm sorry, but, what the hell? You just allowed a POV-pushing single-purpose-account to jam a fringe conspiracy nut-loving, BLP coatrack mess into article-space. Did you even read it? Like the part where there is a sub-header titled "Alleged Enemies List", which deceptively links to a "main article" that is actually a low-grade partisan novel titled HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton? Tarc (talk) 01:39, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

First, I just want to say I completely appreciate your class and tact in your critique. You've named two articles that might have been bad calls out of 700 or so I've approved with little to no issue. WP:TOOSOON policy varies greatly between shows, some series like it done immediately on show announcement as soon as it can pass WP:CRYSTALBALL. The Clinton article obviously had issues, but my job is to make sure it passes the bare minimum guidelines set out for AfC approvals. One of the biggest community consensus amongst AfC editors is that it's not the worst thing in the world for an article to immediately go to AfD, we'd rather wrongly approve and it be corrected without missing a net, instead of scaring away editors who seem to be acting in good fiath. I advise you review AfC policy before trying to derail someone. Sulfurboy (talk) 04:16, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
I also feel this is troubling - Tarc is not alone, as you can see at the AfD, consensus is strongly against this article being approved. Not only that, but why would you move something like this with all that garbage on top to main space? Another editor NorthBySouthBaranof deleted this section immediately, as it had nothing to do with the Clintons. This doesn't make any sense; it is like you did not look at the article. The editor who created it has been around since 2006, so I don't see that there was any chance of scaring anyone away by declining it. Nobody is trying to derail you here - we're just trying to figure out how this occurred. МандичкаYO 😜 12:09, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
If it was just the Big Brother thing, whatever, that's just a WP:TOOSOON tv show. But if you're letting egregious BLP violations into article-space, esp when they target a former president and a current candidate, then then you can expect to be challenged here. If AfC is beacing run like a fly-by-night diploma mill, then it may be time for a reevaluation of the process and its participants. Tarc (talk) 12:25, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Not to pile on but I also want to point out this article doesn't even have an introduction. Isn't there a basic AfC checklist? This article is now at the WP:BLP/N. Sulfurboy, Can you please respond as to what happened here in the AfC process? МандичкаYO 😜 13:40, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Not having a lead section is not a reason to reject a AfC an easy guide for the process can be found here. My intent (and what I thought I had done) is when I removed the remaining afc comments was to move the first section into a lead. Not to defend my decision (as I see now it was an egregious error) but instead to explain it...1) It was incredibly biased before and edits were made, I think seeing such a large improvement tricked my mind into think it was acceptable 2) If it did have continuing issues it would be caught by other editors and sent to AfD (the system worked fwiw). 3) Edits would be made other editors to counter or defend accusations in time. I did believe there was worth for convenience of research to compile the controversies, but obviously there was a better way to go about it. Please feel free to either copy and paste this response where applicable or ping me where I need to respond. Thanks. Sulfurboy (talk) 13:55, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
OK, I can see how that would happen (seeing the huge improvement led your mind astray I think). If you were still arguing this article was good I'd be concerned, but I'm confident there are no problems. Thanks for explaining. МандичкаYO 😜 14:08, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Due to conflict of interest issues, we highly encourage people directly related with a company or a subject not write an article about it. Beyond that, the article has a long way to go.

Draft Article[edit]

Hi, I have been working on this article for a while now and have had numerous comments regarding notability and references. If it wouldn't be a bother for you (and really only if it isn't), could you advise me on how I could get the article up to Wikipedia standard? With regards to notability, I have added all I can regarding his work etc. but can't reference anything other than the work on Emmerdale as all articles I can find on him now relate to the show as it's so popular and his most present work... I have been told I can't link to Wikipedia or the IMDb and when I referenced RottenTomatoes (which I believe to be independent and reliable), I was told it was only a mere name-drop and nothing else so was irrelevant though I only referenced the page to prove the role he played in the movie/series. Many thanks... Article -> JoshDunn98 (talk) 15:33, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

If you can't find the proper sources then that is evidence that this person is simply not notable at this time. Sulfurboy (talk) 15:36, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Based on your previous comment, the story and character breakdown were edited. Do you recommend that it is further condensed? Is there anything else in the article that should also be condensed?

Your kind assistance would be appreciated. (talk) 15:38, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Like I stated before the article looks (and still does) like a playbill. I would almost cut out the character descriptions and act and scene descriptions entirely. You would only see something like that on the most famous of plays or Broadway musicals and even then not usually or done as a separate page. This play is not notable enough for that at this time. The article should focus on a brief summary of the play, reviews and why it is particularly notable. Sulfurboy (talk) 16:18, 29 July 2015 (UTC)


Hello sir, There seems to be a problem with the reliability of the sources, In the field of collectible knives There are not many reliable sources beyond professional reviews and forums but not much beyond. And trust me - I looked.

Also, I use sources by subject only in cases where it is necessary to the technical description of the elements - such as work space.

What exactly makes it look like an ad? Perhaps you could direct me better.

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eytankey (talkcontribs) 16:13, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

The article is neither neutral nor formal. Also the amount of pictures needs to be cut down dramatically to what is completely relevant. There also is probably an issue of notability. If there is not reliable coverage beyond routine reviews than the subject is likely not notable. Sulfurboy (talk) 16:15, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

"If there is not reliable coverage beyond routine reviews than the subject is likely not notable" - on that matter I disagree, If you have pages on other companies, there is no reason not to be a page about this company. Most people in the field are not exactly "computer people" this is a way to expose them to another medium.

on the other issues - I will fix it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eytankey (talkcontribs) 16:33, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

It's not a matter of agreeing or disagreeing. It is wikipedia policy please see WP:42. Sulfurboy (talk) 16:36, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

If a person claims his own words he was a patriot and promote these values and preaches patriotism, it is enough to show the person as such. This means that the source of valid and reliable. That is what I am saying and displays. Quote sources.

And that's part of it. So that it meets the requirements.

Also, the wording refers to how the "he sees himself" and I do not place it as a fact. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eytankey (talkcontribs) 16:54, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) For a living person we have a high standard of referencing. Every substantive fact you assert, especially one that is susceptible to potential challenge, requires a citation with a reference that is about them, and is independent of them, and is in WP:RS, and is significant coverage. Please also see WP:PRIMARY which details the limited permitted usage of primary sources and WP:SELFPUB which has clear limitations on self published sources.
If you state that someone sees themselves as X then we must have citations to prove that thing. This is not susceptible to argument, it is simply something that we insist upon and which is enforced.

16:56:55, 29 July 2015 review of submission by HayMerchant[edit]

I have a question about your review of this page:

These are your reasons for rejection: External links should be removed from the article and either added to an exlink section or scraped. Other accomplishments should be made into a prose form and reduced to what is most relevant. Article should be formal and neutral, with all puffery removed.

I've fixed the first two, and I hope I've addressed the third, about puffery & neutrality. But, as a total noob, I'm not sure I've done an adequate job. For example, I (among other edits) replaced "kickstarting his career" with "beginning his career," removed information about some awards that he has won, and removed the name of another Hart spokesman as it's not relevant. Is that the sort of thing you're talking about or did I miss the mark?

HayMerchant (talk) 16:56, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Yeah all those things are great. The next thing you can do to help your chances is try to track down some sources that deal with Serafin directly, such as articles about him primarily or profiling him. It seems the majority if not all the sources only really mention him in passing. Sulfurboy (talk) 17:05, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Sulfurboy, I currently have four sources that are more or less profiles of him, do you suggest that I rewrite the article to rely more on these?

New album page for Gaelic Storm's album "Matching Sweaters"[edit]


You mentioned that this article needs additional citations for verification. I have added another from the band's webpage... not sure what else is needed (I am kind of a rookie). I built the page based on the others before it and I thought I had everything that was needed.

The tag wasn't meant to be a knock on you. The page is fine as it is, it doesn't have any worry for AfD or such.

I wonder if you will consider another thought[edit]

I have found that it is better use of my time to try very hard to review the same draft once only. This does, of course, increase the backlog if few other reviewers are active, but it provides a better experience for the new editor. One can also argue that further eyes provide a better review. I moved to, mostly offering comments rather than reviews when I'd reviewed a draft previously. Fiddle Faddle 19:30, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

I might do that more often. Although, I do like it when I establish a rapport with an editor who is making an effort to fix things. And also to prevent backlog it's easy to just reject articles of people who haven't made any effort. Sulfurboy (talk) 19:45, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
I try to work with the rapport folk and help them with drafting, simply because I will not re-review the draft. The second class, I find they react better to a different reviewer declining for much the same reason. I know what you mean, of course. Fiddle Faddle 20:57, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

question about AfC decline , Draft:Michael_Elliott[edit]

Hello Sulfurboy, thanks for taking a look at Draft:Michael_Elliott. I'm quite surprised you declined as WP:FAILN, however.

  • Yes, I read the FAQ.  :-) You claim the draft suffers from a failure to meet WP:42, WP:V, and WP:N plus for good measure WP:BIO. I've read them, and they obviously don't apply.
  • new talkpage section, check
  • not asking you to do the work, check, WP:CHOICE
  • link to page, Draft:Michael_Elliott#References

Are you seriously suggesting that this fails WP:42, specifically The Guardian 2007 and 2010,[1][2] Huffington Post 2010,[3] New York Post 2011,[4] Politico 2011,[5] 2015,[6] and NPR 2015.[7]

There are plenty of sources, with a range of many years, and considerable depth in terms of word-count / specificity / etc. I thought this was WP:SNOW for speedy-accept. Which refs do you dispute? (talk) 20:15, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome to resubmit and see what another editor thinks. But to me the first five are just routine coverage of a promotion. Would see this coverage of any person, doesn't make them automatically notable. Six is decent, but the only one out of the seven that's acceptable and it's not even incorporated into the article (neither are any of the seven for that matter). The last is a primary interview which can be used but doesn't help establish notability. Sulfurboy (talk) 20:21, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Apparently we are inherently going to disagree. Podunk Local Newspaper story about the promotion of the local Deputy Constable to their new job title of Assistant Sheriff, is routine coverage. Major national and international newspapers report *important* promotions. This guy was the #2 editor at TIME Magazine for five years, and his promotions started being real-world-notable when he achieved that status. I mean, you can argue that we have a presidential election every four years, yawwwwwn, who cares what the next president's name is gonna be... same old routine political coverage must not be REALLY notable right? ....but that's NOT what WP:RS actually means. I'll resubmit, talk to you later. (talk) 20:27, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

InstaSD (talk) 20:30, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi, the issue was with the fourth source which seems to be corrected. I would recommend though before resubmitting that you take out the promotional tone in the article and replace it with a neutral, formal tone. For example: " provides shoppers with an online portal to order groceries...", instead say " is an company that provides online groceries". The article should just be giving facts not giving an outlet for the company to speak. You also had issues with the headers, but I went ahead and fixed that for you.

Hi Sulfurboy, I have made some changes to the article on Alice Creelman. I tried to take out all subjective language.

Thank you for your review. You mentioned that the subject notability is not adequate.

I believed that further evidence of notability was the recognition and promotion of Blue Monday within 5 states. The listed citations include the Senate Proclamation, statistics from the American Cancer Society, and national media coverage including the Huffington Post.

Anyone can edit any wikipedia page. You just need to go to the draft page and manually change or edit what you want. Also it should be noted that autobiographys are highly discourage on wikipedia. Sulfurboy (talk) 14:27, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

References Help[edit]

Hi Sulfurboy, I'm an intern at and have been working on trying to create a page for Nicole Williams. I'm new to Wikipedia so I still have a lot to learn and have been trying to read through all of the guideline pages, but I'm still struggling with showing her notability. I use Wikipedia all the time and was surprised to see that she did not already have a page since similar career experts do. It seems like Nicole Williams is notable in her field since she has created her own career development company, has written three books on women in the workplace, and has been interviewed in numerous mainstream news outlets as a career expert. I know you're very busy reviewing/helping other people with their pages but if you could take another look at my draft and tell me which (if any) of the references are actually what you're looking for that would help me a lot. My struggle right now is that while there are hundreds of articles and TV show segments featuring her on popular outlets, not many are "independent"/secondary sources. Does this mean that she will never be considered notable? I tried to look through other similar people's pages but many of them have interviews or articles with quotes as references (Should I be using references like that? From what I've read I thought links like those wouldn't work to establish notability, or am I wrong about that?). Thank you so much for working with me on this. I hope I can fix it up for my next submission! Works712 (talk) 14:25, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi! I'm not sure what else I need to do to prove Jay is notable. Would you be about to please tell me the specific issue? This is my first article. Thank you- Stephanie :)

Please see WP:42. We need to see independent coverage of the subject themself. Not just coverage of the shows he has made.

Many thanks for editing my article. However, I am confused as to what I can add to have this article approved. I included footnotes and references inline with Wikipedia's guidelines. What details need citations that I did not already include? Archnotes (talk) 14:56, 30 July 2015 (UTC)Archnotes

First paragraph of teaching and research. Honors and awards. Exhibitions (which by the way should be moved just above publications) And also in the early education bits would be helpful too. Keep in mind you can reuse the same sources for inline cites, you don't have to find an individual source for each one of these claims. Page me when you've done this and I'll approve it.

Could you point me more concretely in which part of the text you think citations are missing? Thanks!

The biggest problem would be that they don't exist. Please read the linked articles on the page for information on how to create them. Sulfurboy (talk) 17:22, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Sulfurboy,

Thanks for reviewing the Alan Chebot page I submitted again. Can you please address my following comments replying to your "Any substantial coverage seems to be local. Can't pass it at this time. Would like to see coverage or articles actually profiling this person."

1. Alan was currently on NPR, which started at NPR's local station and went National on the air. 2. The Schlesinger Award was mentioned in the Hollywood Reporter - a national magazine. This award is huge and shared with celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg. 3. "Song for New Orleans" was written up in the Times Picayune in New Orleans AND in the Pittsburgh Gazette which are NOT local to Boston. 4. Alan was written up in the Boston Globe recently and although “local” to Boston, is one of the top 10 most important and influential newspapers in the country. 5. is a national and international news site, is read by thought leaders all over the country and has a readership of over 4 million per month. They reviewed the film Alan directed AND talk about him substantially throughout the article.

Thanks for reconsidering. Melissa_Marie
