01:27:17, 22 September 2016 review of submission by Petertoi[edit]


Hi help desk!

Hope you can help. My wikipedia entry about a family operated apple orchard, which is a well known late-summer / autumn camp and school field-trip destination here in Ontario, as well as successful and noteworthy business, has been rejected twice.

The first reviewer provided very helpful advice on what to do to get the wikipedia entry posted, which I followed, but then was rejected by a second reviewer who rejected the post without any helpful feedback.

Am hoping to get some more constructive tips for improving the article so that it can be posted.

Feeling a little dejected here, especially due to the negative comments left by the latest reviewer.

Any other thoughts? Peter

Peter Toi (talk) 01:27, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Peter Toi, what is needed is to prove that people not connected to the Orchard are discussing it. This is done by including references to independent, reliable sources on the article. For example, here is an article in The Globe and Mail that significantly discusses the Orchard: As Canadian as selling apple pie to Americans. Find more sources like that, and it will show the orchard passes the company notablity threshold. Happy editing! -- 1Wiki8........................... (talk) 08:23, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

13:35:53, 22 September 2016 review of submission by Vicarage bobby[edit]


I am having trouble making the main heading "Leila Locke" appear in the larger text format.

also - as you can see, the majority of references are from very few publications - how can I make the numerous footnote links scattered through out the article all have the same reference number for the same publication?

thanks!

14:08:41, 22 September 2016 review of draft by Milo2u[edit]


I am curious as to the "right" stage of development to submit an article for review ? We have created an article that is 75-80% complete - needing image placement and references to be added to move very close to completion. Submit now or complete more of the details as mentioned ??? Thank You... Milo2u (talk) 14:08, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

An article is never ready for submission until the references are in place. The draft in question does not yet have the references in the form of footnotes. Also, the draft needs to have work done to make its formatting consistent. Images are not necessary to submit an article for review. They can be added to an article while it is pending review, or after it is accepted into article space. However, if the references are not complete, the article will probably be declined because of the references. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:42, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

16:12:19, 22 September 2016 review of submission by Villeneuveclaire[edit]


Hello , I am working for the company TECHNICOLOR S.A., which owns the license for the trademark THOMSON. We prepared inside the SANDBOX of our TECHNICOLOR colleague, Claire VILLENEUVE, (in copy of this message), the contents of the translation in ENGLISH: of the Wikipedia page, <THOMSON (Brand)> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Villeneuveclaire/sandbox#References_.5Bchange_.7C_modify_the_code.5D which already exists in FRENCH, under the name : <THOMSON (Marque)>: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomson_(marque)

However we received the following comments for this TRANSLATION: We should provide << significant coverage about the subject with content which must be verifiable information from third-party reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject>> We don’t understand this comment. Could you please tell us how to create a Wikipedia page that is just a translation in a language that does not yet exist: ENGLISH, of a Wikipedia page that exist already in FRENCH , and in which we could include the text in ENGLISH <THOMSON (Brand)> we have prepared in the SANDBOX above? Thank you in advance for your help Yours Stéphane


Villeneuveclaire (talk) 16:12, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Bonjour Villeneuveclaire. I'm afraid there are two problems here. One is that the different Wikipedias are all independent and have their own norms and policies. Just because there is an article on a subject on the French Wikipedia, it does not automatically mean there can be one on the English Wikipedia. Translating a Wikipedia article involves a bit more work than just translating the text: you also need to make sure the translated article fits the policies, guidelines and formatting of the new Wikipedia. For example, on en-wiki we tend to be more strict about notability and referencing than many other wikis, so you would need to make sure your translated article met our standards.
The second problem is that as an employee of Technicolor you have a conflict of interest and should not really be editing articles related to the company. I would suggest you use Requested Articles to request that somebody else does the translation. Joe Roe (talk) 01:08, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

18:19:23, 22 September 2016 review of submission by 83.101.67.8[edit]


The article may be abridged at will, but apparently it needs to be created in order to solve the Wikidata problem of two entries on the Wikidata: Corneille Cacheux (Q19921939) https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corneille_Cacheux and Cornil Cacheux (Q15967201) https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornil_Cacheux - Wikidata help suggested to create the English-language Wikipedia article to be able to merge the 2 Wikidata entries. They are really the same person!

83.101.67.8 (talk) 18:19, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

You can just merge them using wikidata's merge function, there doesn't need to be an English Wikipedia article. Joe Roe (talk) 00:59, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

The reviewer declined as not notable. But sent me wp guidelines that say that this person is notable - by competing in the Olympics. Is this reviewer sufficiently educated to perform reviews? Who else is being declined who should not be?

I agree in this case that the subject does appear to be notable because they competed in the Olympics. I suggest that you enter an AFC comment to that effect and resubmit. Robert McClenon (talk) 20:13, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Not every reviewer knows all of the details of all of the guidelines. User:MarkTraceur - Please read the sports notability guidelines and look at the Olympics sections. Robert McClenon (talk) 20:15, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
@Robert McClenon: I explained on my talk page to the submitter that I should not have declined for notability, but WP:RS, because the sources submitted did not seem reliable to me. I invited the submitter to re-submit, and I imagine they are going to. I won't re-decline. --MarkTraceur (talk) 20:33, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Even if someone is ipso facto notable, that notability must be confirmed by reliable sources. Robert McClenon (talk) 21:09, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
  • But it is.

I pointed out to Mark that just as his first decline reason was incorrect, his later second decline reason was also incorrect. Mark said that he decided it was not a reliable source without doing research. I pointed out that it is used as a source in over 39,000 wicki articles, many serving as the satisfaction of the persons notability (by being in the Olympics), and gave him a link to those articles. I also pointed him to 2 discussions on wp on a noticeboard. Those discussions say the source is reliable. I am concerned if we have people saying no to articles for bad reasons. This I think is an example. It cannot be a good way to encourage new editors.

I spelled this all out for Mark, giving him the links, here .. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:MarkTraceur#18:59:38.2C_22_September_2016_review_of_submission_by_2604:2000:E016:A700:9910:BEF0:88FC:B7A4

19:59:39, 22 September 2016 review of submission by Russellmclendon[edit]


I recently submitted an article for creation, and it was initially declined. I have since adjusted the way the article is built and sourced, based on Wikipedia's guidelines for notability and sourcing requirements. It now cites only reliable outside sources -- including a number of newspapers, magazines and published books -- and omits sources associated with the subject. But I'm not sure if these changes suffice, as there's a backlog in articles for creation. Is there a way to find out if these changes might help, or if there's more I should be doing while I wait? I understand this forum is for assistance in editing and submitting, not for requesting a review -- I just want to make sure I'm doing all I can from my end.

20:24:26, 22 September 2016 review of submission by Walrus Boot[edit]



It appears that someone made a change to the footnotes section. I can't tell what needs to be fixed. Thank you, Mark

In looking at your draft, the references do not appear to have been in the form of footnotes, and that is why it was declined. You need to make the references into in-line citations. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:46, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

A previous version of an article on this person was deleted following a deletion discussion. This draft should, in my opinion, only be accepted if the judgment of the reviewer is that it provides more evidence of notability than the deleted version did.

20:05:26, 23 September 2016 review of submission by Waltersobczak[edit]


Waltersobczak (talk) 20:05, 23 September 2016 (UTC) the reason why my article was rejected is not clear. those are valid url's and i am adding new citations, as i was initally instructed to. there are almost 20 citations with many of the subject covered by other wikipedia articles. what does "test edit" mean?

The draft in question is Draft:Walter Sobczak. There are two problems. The first problem is a conflict of interest, which is that you, Walter Sobczak, are trying to write about yourself, Walter Sobczak. Read the conflict of interest guideline and the autobiography guideline. The second problem is that the content was a copyright violation. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. In particular, while you argue that the page should not be deleted as a copyright violation because you own the copyright, that is not enough for Wikipedia. We require that copyrighted material be unconditionally released under a CC-BY-SA copyleft, not merely approved for promotional use in Wikipedia. Most copyright owners do not want to grant an unconditional copyleft release. Also, most copyrighted material that is on web sites is not neutral anyway. Robert McClenon (talk) 14:14, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
By the way, I think that the reviewer, User:KGirlTrucker81, made a mistake in declining your submission as a test edit, but that was not a major mistake, only a matter of declining using the wrong code. I would have declined it as promotional and conflict of interest (since I wouldn't have noticed the copyright violation, which was detected by one of our helpful bots).

Hello! I re-submitted this article on 24 Aug 16 in a much improved version (smiley face), and of course am waiting with bated breath for review. I noticed that my original reviewer, who declined the article, is on sort of a "leave" from wiki, so wonder if there is anything I can legitimately do to help the article along. Thank you all so much. Riknavpdx (talk) Riknavpdx (talk) 20:14, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

15:32:19, 24 September 2016 review of submission by Myoceantravel[edit]

I have not been this frustrated in a long time. I am trying to create a page about the Aircraft Electronics Association. You continue to reject it without valid reasons. I have read all of your policies and complied with them. There is no reason why you are rejecting my page, yet my sister trade associations in the general aviation have nearly identical pages created at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experimental_Aircraft_Association and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Business_Aviation_Association and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_Owners_and_Pilots_Association. Why are the following pages allowed and my identical page is being rejected? You are inconsistent in your judgement and being unreasonable. For example, look up National Business Aviation Association, the Experimental Aircraft Association and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Associaiton. Please be very specific as to why you are choosing to reject my page, yet have no problem with any of these other pages. We are a notable organization, and the reason we are creating a page is because we have received numerous requests as to why we don't have a page on Wikipedia. Do not ask me to read your terms and conditions again. I have done that numerous times and complied with them. I am quickly getting to the point where our organization will give up on Wikipedia and not be a productive contributor. This is very frustrating and you do not have a quick and easy method of communication. Do not send crypted messages and simply communicate directly with me as to why are you rejecting our page. It is NOT an advertisement!!! It is not for promotional purposes!!! It is simply for reference as a notable organization!! Myoceantravel (talk) 15:32, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

In your edit summary creating the article, and above saying "We are a notable organization", you refer to "we". Who is "we"? Wikipedia has a rule of one person, one account. The submission was declined not as promotional, although it clearly is promotional if being submitted by the organization itself, but as having inadequate sources to establish notability. Read the conflict of interest guideline. Robert McClenon (talk) 22:29, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Just to note that the article Aircraft Electronics Association created by the same user was speedy deleted from main space as promotional or advertising a few hours before the draft was created. MilborneOne (talk) 08:17, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Request on 18:25:13, 24 September 2016 for assistance on AfC submission by Brian9577[edit]


I'm trying to create an article on Jack Etienne, the founder of Cloud 9 esports organization, but I've been having trouble finding sources to reference. I could write an article from memory based on following the esports scene but I can't find many sources that have any reputability. Most things I can find are just interviews about the esports teams themselves without any info on the history or organizational side of the organization.

I'm trying to just make a short article summary similar to Hotshotgg or Andy Dinh, as they serve similar roles as founders of esports organizations.

Brian9577 (talk) 18:25, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Brian95777. Unfortunately, if there are no sources, there can be no article. Wikipedia is written purely based on existing published sources. If a person is notable (as I think Etienne is) but there hasn't been quite enough published on him yet, all you can do is wait for more to appear. Joe Roe (talk) 00:33, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

2600:8803:7A00:19:90D3:876A:C38A:6C10 (talk) 20:09, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Because of the way that you wrote, the content was not displayed. You wrote '2017-18 United states Television network schedule article needs to be created.'. You can create a draft article via Articles for Creation and submit it. See Wikipedia is not a crystal ball. We will only write about topics having to do with the future to the extent that there has been coverage in reliable sources. To that extent, you are welcome to contribute. You are more likely to get articles into Wikipedia by writing them and submitting them as drafts than simply by saying that they need to be created.

Hi Wikipedia Help friends

My Occupy London friends are keen that I reask permission to start a page on Co-operative Socialism. A thread in that regard can be found at:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:John_courtneidge

The term 'Co-operative Socialism' has both a history (eg in its usage by Robert Owen, by the Guana Co-operative Republic and now as a plan to develop the concept of both the Co-operative Commonwealth and the Co-operative Commonweal.

Please reinstste the page so that I, we and others can devolop an account of both the history and present use of this term.

Thanks, inand for co-operatio - and thus equality,m equity and peace

It appears that you have repeatedly created a draft on Draft:Cooperative Socialism, and that you then don't work on it, and it is repeatedly deleted after 6 months. At this point the administrators whom you are asking to restore your draft may be skeptical of you saying that you really plan to finish it this time. Why not just start it over from your own notes in 2016? Robert McClenon (talk) 17:42, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

13:49:13, 28 September 2016 review of submission by Vincent L Gilbert[edit]


Looking for clarification on why the page Vincent_L_Gilbert (Username Vincent L Gilbert) was declined. The reviewer suggested reviewing the "What Wikipedia is not" section which I have. I did notice that an advisement given to another user stated "Wait for someone else to create the article", I am assuming this is the reason. If this is the case, I am confused, the article here Wikipedia:An_article_about_yourself_isn't_necessarily_a_good_thing begins "Are you planning to write an article about yourself? Before you proceed" which is a strong indicator that the practice is allowed, of course lower down it does state "No auto biographies"...thus the confusion. I followed the COI policy very carefully, my page is factual and not biased. Certainly I am not the most notable musician to have been involved in the 80's metal explosion, but I am one of the few keyboardists, I am mentioned in multiple books recently published as well as films, and several of the people I am playing with at this time have Wikipedia pages. At one time I toured with what was at that time one of the biggest bands on the world. There is no self promotion, it is really simply a history. My page was annotated, far more than existing pages of individuals I know personally. So is it a matter of content editing, or am I not allowed to start a page?

Thanks in advance!

@Words1011: If there is not much info on your subject, it is not notable enough for a Wikipedia article. See WP:N for more information. Happy editing! JTP (talkcontribs) 01:14, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

September 29[edit]

00:56:24, 29 September 2016 review of submission by Solodev[edit]


Why is this being rejected? We are a legitimate US based software company that is selling unique software and have mentions across many various websites. We have had a page for a while and it was deleted last month due to not updating. We have added new references so why this happening? We are the first US based company to be listed on the Federal GSA contract and we are one of a few US companies Sold by Amazon. This page is very important to us. Please tell me what is wrong with it?

@Solodev: It appears the article was rejected for the following:
"This submission's references do not adequately show the subject's notability. Wikipedia requires significant coverage about the subject in reliable sources that are independent of the subject—see the guidelines on the notability of organizations and companies and the golden rule. Please improve the submission's referencing (see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners), so that the information is verifiable, and there is clear evidence of why the subject is notable and worthy of inclusion in an encyclopedia. If additional reliable sources cannot be found for the subject, then it may not be suitable for Wikipedia at this time."
In addition, you are writing an article about yourself, something that is frowned upon on Wikipedia. Please see WP:NPOV for information. If you have any other questions, please use {{ping|NotTheFakeJTP}} to contact me here or add a message to my talk page. JTP (talkcontribs) 01:04, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
Not sure I am replying properly, but the issue is we have had this page for well over a year and someone decided to delete it. Most of our references are from independent 3rd party sources. They are not from our website and they are written by other people other than ourselves. We are getting involved now to get our page back up. We are looking for help and not just quotes from WP. This is not pay to play and we deserve to have a page. Being the only US company to be on the GSA contract for selling CMS software is very notable. We are listed by the authority on CMS systems here: https://www.cmscritic.com/wordpress-joomla-and-drupal-are-not-the-best-cms/ At the bottom of the page as an enterprise CMS. There are so many other CMS systems listed on WP with less relevant links. Please help.

Also, please note this page which references our company: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Central_Florida_Board_of_Trustees. Seems like if other important pages reference our page we should have a page. Does this help? Solodev (talk) 02:34, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

My article draft has been declined because "The references are not in the form of footnotes" But I am confused because I think that the references are in the form of footnotes. I'm not sure where I'm going wrong here. Hotfeat2016 (talk) 02:56, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

My mistake. They are. Robert McClenon (talk) 03:15, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
However, I think that your draft needs expansion in order to establish a case for notability. Robert McClenon (talk) 03:19, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
