07:53:55, 14 November 2017 review of submission by FriendlyB[edit]


Dear Thereodislong,

thank you for reviewing the draft "Dr. Petry Textile Auxiliaries".

For the sources, I cited independent sources, such as - http://www.genios.de/fachzeitschriften/artikel/MTB/20080617/umweltschutz-und-nachhaltigkeit-in-/060817061.html - https://www.biooekonomie-bw.de/de/fachbeitrag/aktuell/insektenchitin-macht-textilherstellung-nachhaltiger/

In order to have more evidence, I added information from further independent sources and references: - https://www.bloomberg.com/profiles/companies/6311207Z:GR-textilchemie-dr-petry-gmbh - https://www.bluesign.com/industry/chemical-suppliers/references/textilchemie-dr-petry

Thank you in advance for re-reviewing.

Thanks for your help![edit]

Thanks for your assistance with Draft:InnoCare. I have included

and noted it on your user page that I work for that company. They're not paying me to create this page, I just think it would cool to have a Wikipedia page. Let me know if there's anything else you can suggest to improve my draft. I appreciate your help!

05:44:48, 23 November 2017 review of submission by Lizzybunker[edit]

I've added the appropriate citations!

Hi Theroadislong I've edited the text - please let me know if it's better this way I appreciate your feedback!

00:53:26, 27 November 2017 review of submission by Cmolaro[edit]


I added more 3rd party sources that are verifiable and are independent, professional sources (not personal blogs or sites). I now have 15 citations.

Please let me know what else you think is required to have it accepted?

Hi there, thank very much for your care and consideration to to help build this page. I can understand why the review was rejected, as i hadn't cited enough sources on the first draft. I was wondering if you'd mind having a read over the latest draft and checking if it is better now thank you. SP

21:10:13, 6 December 2017 review of submission by Innocent Cuty[edit]


Dear Theroadislong

Hope you are fine and doing good.

I am requesting for a review again as the major comment for rejection/decline of this article was its Reference section or having less references. Now, the draft has been updated, and more than 20 solid references have been employed, with more historical details, and best possible bibliographic support in the light of the available literature. This single page article is now having over 25 appropriate references, and are strengthened with new data.

Your anticipation in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Sincere Regards

The objected references (facebook) has been udpated with the departmental URLS (links to the webpages). Thank you for the Prompt response and providing support to make this draft better.[edit]

Dear Theroadislong

Thank you very much for your prompt response.

The objected references (facebook) has been udpated with the departmental URLS (links to the webpages). I think, these were the most up to dated and regularly updating references. Moreover, the last paragraph was deleted, because the book describing the paragraph and the mentioned material is in press (which is written by Dr. Ikram), and once the book got published, the three to four lines paragraph will be inserted again.

I do hope, that the draft will get approved now and will get online, as after coming across other such articles, this one seems to be far better than those.

Your prompt and positive anticipation in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanking you in anticipation

Sincere Regards

The submission's referencing was improved as advised, and I added a few more. More information on his teachings and publications were added. The page exists in 3 other Wikipedia: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Russell https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Russell https://sk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Russell

In-depth coverage[edit]

I added RPG Site. Is that a reliable source?

Hi Theroadislong! I have recently uploaded a draft of the article "Admitad" here and you have declined it. Could you kindly explain what can I do to make it right? Is it possible to work with you as my mentor on the draft? Or, maybe, you can help with writing, could you kindly tell me what is the best option? admitad is a global company, it already helps over 630,000 people worldwide. I believe, that it needs to be on Wikipedia.

Thanks for the info[edit]

For the bio, is Nicholas Kaufmann's official website a good enough source? That's where the info comes from, anyway.

Typo in Title[edit]

Hi and thanks for approving my post for "Helgesias of Sinope." Unfortunately there's a typo in the title, which should be "Hegesias of Sinope" (no L). My apologies for that (it was my first post). I don't know how to fix a mistake in a title. Are you able to help me? Thank you, Budapest Joe

Images/Imágenes[edit]

Hi! As Images/Imágenes stated I am being paid to edit this page, but I am also working on this program as it is a work in progress. It was on the aire for over 30 years and pulled off in 2011. We are currently working on starting the project again but as this program began in the 70's there is not a large online presence. Is there anyway this page could be published for now, so we can show people that Images/Imágenes is coming back? Thanks, Alice

I have a lot of information from the Executive Producer but since none of it is available online, I cannot reference it. For example: (None of this is available online) Mission Images/Imágenes is a multi- Emmy award-winning television program series that creates, chronicles, and promotes the varied rich diverse history, culture, and life experiences of Hispanic/Latino communities in the state of New Jersey and the nation. Brief Organizational History For 46 years, the Images/Imágenes television series provided a voice and platform for New Jersey's diverse Latino population. The program series is known as the longest-running Latino community program in the history of PBS. Over the decades, the Emmy award winning series featured thought provoking round table discussions, interviews, profiles, documentaries and special topic episodes on the most prevalent issues pertaining to and for the Hispanic/Latino populations – the fastest growing demographic in New Jersey. Program topics ranged from lifestyles, business, education, legal matters, community affairs, pop culture/entertainment, the arts, sports and the health and sciences. Images/Imagenes was launched on January 6, 1972 than titled “Mi Casa Su Casa” on NJPTV hosted by producer, Diego Castellanos. The program made history as the first Latino television series on Public Television in New Jersey to air across the Garden State and surged as the nation’s number one market in New York and the number 4 market in Philadelphia. Since then the series is recognized as a resource for top Latino stories, both at local, as well as the national level. Award Winning Producer William Sánchez is the Producer/Director of Images/Imágenes since 1972, and is currently revitalizing a new series as its producer/director at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. He produced the series with the PBS NJ Television Network until the station was dissolved by the state on June 30, 2011. Within the first ten years Images/Imágenes became the leading contributor of programs for the PBS Series Presente hosted by Rita Moreno. Images/Imágenes competed with mainstream networks and was selected over ABC World News Tonight at the National Unity Awards in St. Louis. Then it rose to the top of the Latino Broadcasting Media when it was highlighted at the San Antonio Film Festival in the 1980s as a must see series on Latin Music alongside the films “LA BAMBA” and “STAND AND DELIVER.” National Recognition

For over 40 years, Images/Imágenes under the leadership of producer William Sanchez the television industry has recognized the series with four Emmys and nominated for twenty by National PBS. The series is distinguished having received numerous national acclaims from the White House, Congress, National PBS, the National Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), and three New Jersey Governors. The series represented PBS in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. It was distributed by the Department of Defense and with audiences including American military bases around the world. It was also national under the Latino Consortium’s series “PRESENTE” with host Rita Moreno. Now under the banner of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Images/Imagenes’ legacy continues for public viewing at the United States Library of Congress. Signature Shows There are a number of evergreen programs that were signature shows for the series and are timeless works of history and culture. A. Sembrando El Futuro/Seeding the Future (5-part Parent Education Series) Nationally acclaimed/ New York Emmy Award Winner 1985 B.

Productech Corporation draft reviewing[edit]

Dear Thereodislong,

thank you for reviewing the draft of Productech Corporation article. I was trying to do it objective aтв not an advertising, taking an article about JBL as an inspiration. Looks like I failed (( Would you please advise, what parts of the article require editing? thank you in advance!

References added[edit]

Hi, I filled up the draft with some useful references and also added some literature. I hope it could be enought. Thanks

Page : Reynolds Purackal edit[edit]

I have resubmitted the article for a re-review. Could you please go through that and let me know if it reads better now? If not can you guide me in writing it better or can you show an example?

Thanks, Tina Tinamariyam1990 (talk) 13:42, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes it reads much better but it's only three lines and I don't know that being a "servant of God" makes him notable? I'll leave it for someone else to review. Theroadislong (talk) 15:31, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Draft:TARGET_instant_payment_settlement[edit]

Dear Theroadislong, I'm writing you about the TIPS wiki page to ask for a clarification about the "Blatant advertising" issue mentioned in your review.

The page I've created has the pouropose of divulgating this new Eurosystem payment system (like the Target 2 and T2S. It has not the scope of promote it for commecial purposes or to sell something, bcause there is nothing to sell.... it a new way for European citizen to send money istantly (like other Instant_payment worldwide.

I've published the same page in the italian wikipedia (https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Target_instant_payment_settlement) without receiving such kind of comment.

I've declared a potential confict of iterests because I work in a Central Bank, but please consider that as mentioned before that thi article has divulgating purposes only.

I hope you woud appreciate this clarification and might reconsider the review.

Thank you in advance for any suggestion you woud give me in order to improve the quality of this wiki page. --Nicola Caione (talk) 21:16, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Sentences like this “The Eurosystem’s market infrastructure is evolving and many initiatives are ongoing to promote efficiency, innovation and integration in financial markets in Europe.” are blatant advertising! The fact that you have published the same page on Italian Wikipedia is irrelevant, it should probably be deleted there as well. Theroadislong (talk) 21:34, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Dear Theroadislong,
Thank you for the hint, I’ll try to rephrase the sentences that are sounding like the one you mentioned using a more neutral language, but please consider I’m not native English speaker. I’m not a representative of the European Central Bank and I’ve selected as references press releases and other independent and reliable sources.
The ECB itself, the Institution promoting the TIPS initiative, it is a public authority like Federal Reserve System, Bank of Japan, International Monetary Fund etc. All these Institutions are independent, reliable and not aimed at making profit from their activities.
Thank you all and best regards,
Nicola Caione (talk) 14:54, 2 September 2018 (UTC) @Kpgjhpjm: @Theroadislong:
Please note that press releases are NOT independent, reliable or suitable. Theroadislong (talk) 15:09, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
Generally speaking I agree with your statement, but Wikipedia is full of press release because they come from reliable source, and I suppose that International Authorities are reliable.....
To keep a positive approach I kindly ask you to provide me the references you presume are not reliable, I'll do my best to find better one Nicola Caione (talk) 15:59, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
@Nicola Caione: I recommend you to see other related articles , see how they are written and then re-write yours in an encyclopaedic way with reliable sources. Kpgjhpjm 15:38, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Aspergillus aculeatinus[edit]

I've long encouraged article creators to add projects to their article talk pages to foster collaboration. For consistency I guess I should also encourage you as the reviewer promoting the article to mainspace. Regards, Cabayi (talk) 14:12, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, good call, is there somewhere I can find a list of projects for future reference? Theroadislong (talk) 15:56, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Usually I copy from similar pages. For Aspergillus aculeatinus I went to the parent genus Aspergillus & copied from there. For the occasions where there's nothing to copy, there's a project directory at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory. Cabayi (talk) 16:04, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Some proposed changes[edit]

Looking to make proposed changes to Richard Borer profile. Please see below. I would also appreciate all templates being removed as there are no more issues unless you can tell me how I may correct them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Borer

Thank you kindly,

Kelly

H. Richard Borer is an former American politician and current nonprofit executive. Borer was the former mayor of West Haven, Connecticut, and member of the Democratic Party. He is currently President of Goodwill Industries of Southern New England in New Haven, Connecticut. In 1991, Borer was elected as the eighth mayor of the city of West Haven, a position he held for seven terms. During his tenure as mayor, Borer focused on the redevelopment of commercial areas including a new train station on Metro North line for West Haven, redevelopment of Sawmill Road, Savin Rock Conference Center and public safety with a new state of the art Police Station.[1][2][3] Borer serves on the board of directors for Goodwill International and formerly the Leadership Circle of Goodwill of Southern New England.[4][5] He currently serves on the New Haven Workforce Alliance, Gateway Community College Foundation and as commissioner of the Milford Redevelopment and Housing Partnership.[6] --Thehappyworkaholic (talk) 16:06, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

As repeatedly suggested, you need to discuss this on the article talk page not here. The templates stay until the issues are resolved, his notability is NOT established and you continue to edit the article as a paid editor so the COI notice remains in place. Theroadislong (talk) 16:09, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi There,

Draft:Ambleside International Schools[edit]

Theroadislong,

Thank you for your message. I wanted to reach out to you to give me some guidance on creating a page for Ambleside Schools International and their affiliate members. I am trying to sort out the world of educators connected to Charlotte Mason. ASI is a fast-growing K-12 organization, but there is surprisingly little out there by way of third-party informational sources. What advice do you have to making an encyclopedic on such an organization with so little additional information outside of the organization's own site? Thanks!Rkwestervelt (talk) 20:39, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

It's very simple, we only summarise what reliable, independent published sources have to say about a subject. If there are no such sources then we cannot have an article. Theroadislong (talk) 20:42, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

I have written an article which is about me as my life as an author. You have rejected it because of the references. Some of the references were about my latest book, 'Psomi' and some were interviews that I gave for lit magazines. I will resubmit without any references to see if the article passes.

Widespread pedophilia[edit]

Could point me those sources please? I would very much like to see them.UltimateHope (talk) 11:07, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

There are 330 sources in the Catholic Church sexual abuse cases article including these…

I will add some to the article if you like? Theroadislong (talk) 11:23, 10 September 2018 (UTC) That article says nothing about it being widespread, and widespread=/=prevalence, so even with those sources your original edit would still be problematic. I’ll check those sources first.UltimateHope (talk) 11:25, 10 September 2018 (UTC) “Widespread” would be a good word, but it should be in the body first.

Review of March Networks AfC draft?[edit]

Hello, Theroadislong -

I don't know if you remember me, but I just thought I'd pop around to see if you might be willing to take a look at the latest edits I made to the March Networks draft over at AfC. I've toned down some of the language, but would be interested in getting your take on whether it's enough. The draft has been awaiting review for some time now, and I want to do everything I can to make sure it meets NPOV and notability. I'm definitely open to any feedback and/or recommendations you'd be willing to offer.

Thanks very much!

“Western” religions[edit]

The reason why the sentence says “Abrahamic religions” even though three prominent Abrahamic faiths are crossed out as “Western” is because monotheism is an essential part of Western civilisation and the Abrahamic religions are monotheistic and Platonist in nature. Eastern Christianity is an exception because it is what created the East-West dichotomy in the first place.UltimateHope (talk) 21:18, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Ark Encounter[edit]

In terms of policy, I think you did the right thing here, but it feels wrong for Wikipedia to be stating things as fact that are factually incorrect. So I've posted to Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#How_do_we_deal_with_a_RS_being_factually_incorrect.3F to ask for advice on how to handle this. Please do chime in if you have any suggestions. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 08:36, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Too busy with routine editing to take on more responsibilities! Theroadislong (talk) 11:07, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
It's a volunteer thing. You need not busy yourself any more or less. If you're an admin and see something you can fix with your tools, you do. If you're not an admin, you have to ask someone else. There's no rule that admins need to stop editing. In fact, lack of content work is a regular reason for RfAs being opposed. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 12:10, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Request to review a submission at Articles for creation[edit]

Hi Theroadislong,

I have been editing on Wikipedia for sometime but this is my 2nd attempt to create an article. You can find my submission about The/Nudge Foundation here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:The/Nudge_Foundation

However, it has been more than 8 weeks and the review has not taken place. I have attempted to put multiple credible sources including Indian and international outlets to verify the notability of the subject. Additionally, I am in no way associated with the subject matter involved, and this is an attempt to increase my submissions and contributions on Wikipedia.

Please let me know in case this article is good enough to be accepted according to Wiki guidelines. In case I need to make any improvements, I would appreciate support from your end.

Thanks a lot, in advance. ParadiseStark (talk) 11:56, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Draft: Jeff Hunt (music producer)[edit]

Hey so I'm wondering what else I have to do to have this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Jeff_Hunt_(music_producer) at least turned into a non-Draft, full Wikipedia page. I've cited several reputable sources that link back to Jeff Hunt and prove his affiliation with the label Table of the Elements. I would love to make it live so that more people are aware of it and able to contribute.

Let me know. Thanks. Alaks Hovel 13:23, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Your draft Draft:Jeff Hunt (music producer) has only one sentence and a VERY long list, it would help if you added sourced content which explained why he is notable, awards, reviews in national newspapers, books, etc. It has also not been submitted for review. Theroadislong (talk) 13:34, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Ray Burrows[edit]

Hi there,

Thank you for your feedback in regards to my article. I will try to gather more content and sources.

Thanks again,

Doreen Virtue reversion[edit]

Hello,

I am curious as to why you considered the links to a Doreen Virtue interview as unreliable but have left other links to an interview standing. Please explain your rational for this.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.253.119.138 (talk) 16:21, 14 September 2018 (UTC) 
This link [1] doesn't mention her and we don't use Youtube as a source for anything, because it is considered unreliable. Theroadislong (talk) 16:34, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Submitting page[edit]

Please Do not assume it is my client by you saying politely, it isn't It is a way of me specifying the article not a person relationship or

WMO Information System[edit]

Hi, I am new to wikipedia. I have read some guidelines but apparently not understood them sufficiently. I wanted to fill a gap, because I have noticed that there is an article about Global Telecommunications System (GTS) but not about WIS that can been seen as its enhancement/evolution. I linked my article to documents at WMO (World Meteorological Organization) site - is this the problem? Do you consider it a non-independent source of information? Or do you consider the WIS not important enough to deserve a separate article? Josusky (talk) 09:32, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

We only summarise what reliable, independent published sources have to say about a subject. If there are no such sources then we cannot have an article. Theroadislong (talk) 09:37, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Aleged Edit War -- Sleeper[edit]

Please perform due diligence when advising someone of something as serious as edit warring. The item in question was brought to the talk page and yet the other editor continued to revert and not abide by the rules of WP.2605:E000:1301:4462:8C64:A6E3:E51C:CFEC (talk) 15:45, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes you took it to the talk page where you were told " The issue is that your writing is of poor quality and does not improve the article." and yet you still added it back. that is edit warring. Theroadislong (talk) 15:47, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
How is the writing not appropriate to WP standards?2605:E000:1301:4462:8C64:A6E3:E51C:CFEC (talk) 15:58, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
You would have to ask user:TheOldJacobite about that, but terms like “ washed-up lawyer, Danny Snyder,” and “The boys pull a prank with a hot dog cart “ certainly don’t read as encyclopaedic. Theroadislong (talk) 16:06, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Paul B. Harding[edit]

Hi -

I am not sure what the issue is with the resubmitted Wiki. We followed all of your guidelines. There is one blog post resource but it is an outside, reputable source - The Times Union. You have made this process almost impossible - we have submitted this post 3 times now and every, single time there is an issue. Clearly state what we do to make this an acceptable Wiki post, please. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RenderTribe (talkcontribs) 13:25, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

You say "we" Wikipedia accounts are for single person use only. The subject is not notable, you are being paid to edit and have failed to disclose this. Theroadislong (talk) 13:33, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

neutral point of view[edit]

Hello thanks for your advice "Please write about the topic from a neutral point of view in an encyclopedic manner."

Could you give me an example from the article to help me on my way?

Thanks

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Theroadislong, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Other
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Topsham[edit]

There may be other place called "Topsham" but the title is disambiguated from them, so a hatnote to the DAB is not needed as none are in Devon. Crouch, Swale (talk) 10:23, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Ah yes, you could well be right, sorry. Theroadislong (talk) 10:33, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your review of my article[edit]

I have used Wikipedia a lot to find out about things. You would think Wikipedia of all places, would be a resource for the things you need to stay safe and progress through life. I had a simple problem with a water faucet in my bathroom. Everywhere I searched on the internet and then even at hardware stores, plumbing supply businesses and even manufacturers, personnel did not give me the answer to what I thought was the most elementary questions, concerning a valve for my bathroom faucet. Once I bought numerous parts and assembled what little information I could gather, I got my answers. I just thought I should share it. I guess Wikipedia is not the place to do that. Do you have any suggestions. I know there are people out there with the same dilemma I had. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sheffield3exp (talkcontribs) 14:59, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Your article is original research which we cannot host. Articles on Wikipedia must be adequately supported by reliable sources so that information can be verified.

We only summarise what reliable, independent published sources have to say about a subject.If there are no such sources then we cannot have an article. You could upload your research to a blog or forum, but Wikipedia is not the place I'm afraid, good luck. Theroadislong (talk) 15:04, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Dave Roller[edit]

There was no COI in Dave Roller's original Wikipedia page. All information can be documented by articles and pictures. So how is that a conflict of Interest? Wikipedia should be glad to have all the information that Dave Roller provided. Also, Mr. Roller has asked that his birth date be removed from Wikipedia and it was removed but now that his information has been deleted and rewritten his birth date has been added back. Please remove his date of birth as that is sensitive information of a living person.

Thank you! Mmm1313 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mmm1313 (talkcontribs) 21:29, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

The conflict of interest arises because you are representing the subject of the article, you are welcome to suggest changes on the articles talk page, but all content has to be sourced, this doesn't have to be on line, it can be from magazines and newspapers. I can remove the date of birth but it is clearly freely available information on many websites that mentions him. Theroadislong (talk) 21:37, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for your feedback[edit]

Hello Theroadislong,

Thank you for giving feedback on my draft articles Draft:Natasha Mudhar and Draft:Sterling Media earlier this year following my post in Teahouse. Since then, I have been working to change both pages to better fit Wiki's standards based on the feedback you gave.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a look at the revised articles and let me know if you feel it is acceptable for approval or if you have further feedback?


Kind regards, DAL123 (talk) 08:54, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Daljitkundi sandbox[edit]

Hi Theroadislong

Hope your well,

Thanks for looking into my Wikipedia sandbox draft for approval, I would like to give my deepest gratitude for looking into this page, I currently edited a section on the biography and it seems the area beneath the 2nd picture when it was stated [Sinius] has gone missing, is there a way of getting that section back? As it contains information about past performances at the Mercury Prize Award Winner + OBE Talvin Singh Anokha Tent performance by Sinius & Atmospheric Research?

I look forward to hearing from you,

Kind Regards,

-Daljit

I have no way of knowing which article you are referring to and as you are logged out your edit history doesn't tell me either. Theroadislong (talk) 09:28, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Editor

please accept my apologies, here is the link as requested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Daljitkundi/sandbox?wprov=sfti1

i also notice my discography has gone missing, their seems to be a duplication.

deepest gratitude,

-Daljit — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daljitkundi (talkcontribs) 11:56, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

If you look at the edit history you can see that you removed these, your draft is an autobiography which is strongly discouraged it also has no sources and will not be acceptable without them. Theroadislong (talk) 12:21, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

thanks for the information theroadislong, deeply appriciate it, will have another re-edit later on this evening to correct it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daljitkundi (talkcontribs) 13:19, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
