Your submission at Articles for creation[edit]

Citation-needed-vertical.svg

I noticed your submission in Articles for creation, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Council for Higher Education in Newark, (CHEN). Thanks! It will be reviewed by a volunteer soon.

Before it can be added to Wikipedia, your submission should have references. All articles on Wikipedia should have inline, numbered references after facts, showing the 'reliable source' (a newspaper, book, etc.) where the information can be checked, so that all information is verifiable.

Here's a video tutorial - hit play, then right-click for "full screen".

Here's an example of how to add references:

Chzz is 98 years old.<ref> "The book of Chzz", Aardvark Books, 2009. </ref>

He likes tea.<ref> Smith, John. "[http://foonews.com/Article42 Interview with Chzz]", Foo News, 1 April 2010. Retrieved 2011-05-22. </ref>

== References ==

{{reflist}}

That makes the references automatically display as small numbers[1] which will link to the details in the section titled == References == at the end. You can see that example in action here.

Please add references to your submission, which will be reviewed as soon as possible. See also, Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners. If you need any help, just put {{helpme}} at the end of this page, followed by a question or get into our live help chat chanel at #wikipedia-en-help connect.

Council for Higher Education in Newark[edit]

Hello Nolelover, Thank you for your email. I have followed your instructions on submitting a revision. I am new to writing articles and didn't appreciate the issues that can arise. The first responce spoke about me not including any references which was operator problems on my part. later, I got dinged on close paraphrasing. In updating my article I went thru the list of items identified in the Duplications Detection list. Hopefully, i got them all.

thanks, Wrrsimone (talk) 02:02, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia! A412 (Talk * C) 06:16, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Hello A412, Regarding my article "Council for Higher Education in Newark", I am confused about two things: First I made numerous changes in the text since first posting the article but I still have the "close paraphrasing" heading over the article. Using the Duplications detector list, I've worked my way down the list to the point where the remaining items are mostly proper names, e,g, Rutgers-Newark, which obviously can't be removed. My question then is: How do I get the close paraphrasing critique re-evaluated, and if it is re-evaluated how will I know if it fails again? My second issue is that one reviewer cited my article as being redundant since such an article (mine) already exist, which only adds to my confusion.

If I was more experienced I would love to help in a process that led to a tighter process for evaluating candidate articles but I don't have the experience. Nonetheless, and speaking as a novice, I think such a tightening would go a long way in helping interested parties to get their feet wet in writing articles.

Thank You for your time Wrrsimone (talk) 20:20, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 6[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Newark Light Rail, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page PATH (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Relative time references[edit]

I've reverted your change to New Jersey Institute of Technology due to relative time references. The rationale can be found here: Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Words_to_watch#Relative_time_references. If you think I've made a mistake, please feel free to discuss it here. The entire section is inconsistent in this regard (which I assume is why you reworded it in the first place) and I hope to make some improvements soon. Or if you have some time, feel free! - Ginotech (talk) 23:34, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

NJIT Highlanders, direct link to athletics dept[edit]

I don't know who you are but your objection to the link I implement is inconsistent with general practice. For example, exactly the same type of linkage is implemented at numerous college wiki entries. There may be some obscure rule that discourages such linkage but either it applies universally or it applies not at all! Try typing MIT or RPI into the search box and see what you get. Again either the rule applies to all or it doesn't apply. I look forward to you (non-automated) response. Wrrsimone. Wrrsimone (talk) 16:25, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Wrrsimone, it would be better to discuss the use of that external link in the article talk page at Talk:New Jersey Institute of Technology so other editors can weigh in. Including that external link in the infobox does not seem consistent with WP:EL and how infoboxes are used. Also, other articles having those links in the infobox does not make it correct. Further discussion at the article talk page would be best. Thanks, Bahooka (talk) 16:46, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi Wrrsimone, I've also noticed that more than once you removed the wikilink to NJIT Highlanders, and messed up the formatting of the reference. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with editing on Wikipedia. There are many help pages and help forums if you are in doubt. To continue to make an edit that is clearly contrary to policy, after being cautioned in good faith by other editors, would likely be reported as disruptive editing. Thanks for your cooperation. Magnolia677 (talk) 22:48, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

I would remind the person who placed all the external links in the NJIT article at the end of the sentences in which the items are located that, while this is generally good practice, IT IS NOT MANDATORY AND WHEN IT MAKES SENSE, EXTERNAL LINKS CAN APPEAR MID-SENTENCE. Remember: bots are bots! Wrrsimone (talk) 16:03, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Please take a moment to read WP:ELPOINTS, which states "external links should not normally be used in the body of an article". Thanks again. Magnolia677 (talk) 16:10, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

ACHA[edit]

FYI, the NJIT hockey team may be Division II in the ACHA, but the NJIT team and the ACHA have nothing to do with the NCAA, so to link it to NCAA Division II would be erroneous. The ACHA structure has its own format, several lower level NCAA teams play in their Division I and many NCAA Division I teams (such as NJIT) play in lower divisions.UCO2009bluejay (talk) 00:02, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

You'd be better off using your sandbox[edit]

Hi. I don't want to sound discouraging, I really don't, but I've just seen your new 'article' on Sboxnjitawards at New Page Review. I realise it only went live a 15 minutes ago, and that you're still working on it. But, in future, please could I ask if you'd consider preparing articles either as a draft, or in your sandbox, right from the start? It's just nonsense as it stands, and another New Page Reviewer might well propose it for deletion at any moment. I'm hoping you're going to make some serious improvements to it in the next half hour or so, because, if not, I'm going to move it into draft for you to work on there. I'd like to ask you to consider that this is an encyclopaedia, and that all our mainspace articles do need to have a degree of quality and structure almost immediately. Any questions, just shout. Regards, Nick Moyes (talk) 22:18, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Too late. Another reviewer has now just draftified it. My comments above still stand though, and are offered in good faith to support willing editors who want to make good articles. Cheers, Nick Moyes (talk) 22:22, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Hello Nick, It's been a while since I used sandbox and obviously somehow I unintentionally produced a new "article". I appreciate your picking up on it so quickly. Regards Wrrsimone (talk) 17:31, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
