Request on 08:04:09, 17 April 2021 for assistance on AfC submission by Afí-afeti[edit]


Hello, Help desk team, I'm having an issue with my draft. I have edited to meet WP:NPOV as a sub. According to the last reviewer, the articles meets notability but written as an advert he says. I have edited the article and I would need assistance from the house to look into the article before I resubmit the AFC for review.

I created and published an article on Feb. 9th, 2021, which was declined right after its publication on the same day. I then modified the article according to what the reviewer had requested on March 4th, 2021. Nothing has happened since then and I wanted to inquire into whether there is another problem or why the article is not going online. Thank you very much. Kind regards

15:42:05, 17 April 2021 review of draft by Nicolaslemonnier75[edit]


Hi there, I have been working on submitting some change on a draft article that was refused months ago (not submitted by me at that time). The link to the draft article is the following : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Steve_Pascolo

I submitted the revision (with many changes compared to former submissions), but nothing is happening, and it seems that at least one of the two reviewers that refused the first publication is definitely blocked.

Could you make sure that the article could be reviewed by someone? Of course, I am not deeply experienced in Wikipedia, so I might have some corrections to bring upon request, let me know in that case.

Many thanks in advance, Best, Nicolaslemonnier75 (talk) 15:42, 17 April 2021 (UTC) Nicolas


Nicolaslemonnier75 (talk) 15:42, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

17:24:05, 17 April 2021 review of draft by BadSoden1[edit]


Hello, my submissionbgelent from @Gpkp with this reason "this submission is not adequately supported by reliable sources".

The same article in German, with the same sources was accepted by Wikipedia (GER) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa_in_der_Parkstrasse_28.

As proofs serve liste: 1 - State Office for Monument Preservation Hesse, 2 - List of cultural monuments in Bad Soden am Taunus.

And book Christiane Schalles, "Chewing Gum and Spa Concerts" and artickl in German Digital Library.

Of course all references are in German!

What else can I do to publish artickl?


BadSoden1 (talk) 17:24, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

@BadSoden1The German language and the English Language Wikipedias have different inclusion criteria. Even so I think it is likely, but not certain, to pass our notability criteria. Wikipedia:NBUILDING will tell you for certain. It would be worth discussing this with @Gpkp FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 17:43, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank you @Faddle. It is about a historic building in Germany, which is a listed building. Of course all sources are in German but they are fully linked as proof. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BadSoden1 (talkcontribs) 17:55, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

The sources being in German is not an issue. We accept citations to sources not in English. The issue is that de.wp and en.wp have different standards for inclusion, and it's not certain (though it is likely) that the article meets en.wp's standards, as Timtrent says above. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Jéské Couriano 23:14, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
@BadSoden1:; The drafts must be reliably sourced (with multiple citations). You can see the AfC guidelines here. There are many articles such as Miscellaneous centre, The New Democrats, Phạm Minh Chính which are created directly with a translation tag, but as far as the AfC review is concerned, it must be as per the guidelines. --Gpkp [utc] 06:51, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

I am working on an article about a long-running nightclub in New York City. Two videos (by different groups) were filmed at the club and offer an historic view of the unique interior. Both videos received wide airplay on channels like MTV. Is it appropriate to link those videos to the article? Or should they be placed in a “References” section? What is the proper way to do that? Thanks in advance.

10:05:29, 18 April 2021 review of draft by Triojan LLP[edit]


I want to publish an article about a conglomerate in Wiki, but it has been rejected, saying that it is sounding like an advertisement. I want to understand how I can make it sound more factual.

Triojan LLP (talk) 10:05, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Triojan LLP I only had to read the opening to see that the draft is an advertisement. Any and all language that is like "The company aims to provide high-quality products and services to its customers" needs to be removed. The draft should only summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about the company, showing how it meets Wikipedia's special definition of a notable company. Press releases, announcements of routine business activities, the company website, brief mentions, staff interviews, and other primary sources do not establish notability.

14:21:25, 18 April 2021 review of draft by Inspiress[edit]


  • I have not gotten any help asking this question over a day ago. Please help me!**

I have gathered evidence from all independent sources and many reliable sources and have written the article from a neutral point of view, I do not understand why my article is tagged as "read more like an advertisement"?? I am not advertising anything in the article, and I am totally independent from this person I am writing about. I would like more detailed response than simply "it reads like an advertisement", such as where I should reword, what I should add more, etc. This is a polite ask for help based on the review. I would appreciate it if any experienced editor can help me point out what I should change.

  • Note: I have gathered as much information about the person I am writing on as possible. As far as providing further detail on any topic, I am unable to gather more details about her.

Inspiress (talk) 14:21, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Inspiress: I can see why this was declined. There is a lot of WP:PUFFERY in the draft. Things like "She is known as the pioneer of Eldercare" Says who? Just her? The Career section is completely unreferenced and reads like that of a Resume/CV which is also a form of advertising. This is not neutral or stated by any source. Using her own articles as references to prove she wrote for certain publications is a form of WP:OR and can be considered advertising. Even listing each and every publication is a form of advertising, we generally don't care about newspaper or magazine articles they write unless they have made a major impact in her career. Listing highly cited academic writings may also be acceptable. This is the things I noticed from a precursory scan. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 19:48, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
@Mcmatter: Thank you for the helpful feedback, I will focus on improving upon the points you have mentioned - adding more citations to support the article. There are several points I would like to confirm with you in order to fully understand your response:
For one news agency, I have cited the person's profile page as posted in the news agency. As for the other news agencies, I managed to only find archived columns from the person and there was no online profile for her, what relevant citations other than her published columns could I cite? I have only used her own columns to cite proof of her being a columnist and when introducing what she wrote in her own columns briefly. In the career section, except for the first paragraph and the first sentence of the second paragraph, the rest of the section except for the first paragraph (which I forgot to cite) has citations placed for each statement from various interviews with her.
Again, thank you for your reply! User:Inspiress (talk)/(contrib) 20 April 2021 (UTC)
@Inspiress: If no one has written about the subject that isn't connected to her then she may not qualify, currently, for an article on the English Wikipedia. Unless you can prove she meets any of the criteria in WP:NACADEMIC or WP:GNG and even then it may be a very short article which we call a stub based just on basic information. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 22:59, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
@Mcmatter: Actually, from an academic side, she has been cited by many subsequent scholars in their journals and academic reports for her expertise, etc. so I could reference those for citations instead. Thank you for the idea! I think I'll focus on more of her academic accomplishments. And yes, it will most likely be a stub. User:Inspiress (talk)/(contrib) 20 April 2021 (UTC)

14:56:55, 18 April 2021 review of submission by Vajradiamond[edit]


Vajradiamond (talk) 14:56, 18 April 2021 (UTC)


This is a translation of the Mandarin article of 谷秀衡

Hi Vajradiamond. Are you trying to say that you think Draft:Thomas H. Ku should be accepted for publication because the topic exists at zh:谷秀衡? Each language version of Wikipedia operates according to it own set of rules, set by the community of editors who contribute there. So an article may be suitable for the Mandarin Wikipedia but not the English Wikipedia, or vice versa. Also the existence of an article somewhere does not mean it should exist there, it may only mean that no one has gotten around to deleting it yet.
The acceptability of the draft depends on the sources it cites. At present it cites no sources, so is completely unacceptable. When you translated the Mandarin article, you didn't copy the three sources it cites. If you wish to continue working on the topic, you could start by citing those sources in your translation. You also would need to find additional independent, reliable, secondary sources that contain significant coverage of him. Only two of the three sources from the Mandarin article are independent of him, and those two are both about his fatal fall from his balcony, so they don't demonstrate significant coverage over a period of time. If you find several suitable sources, you may ask the reviewer to reconsider the rejection of the draft. --Worldbruce (talk) 17:47, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

OK I understand. Thank you for letting me know.

14:57:51, 18 April 2021 review of submission by Vajradiamond[edit]


Vajradiamond (talk) 14:57, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

How do I do a translation of an Mandarin article in English?

@Vajradiamond: If you can read and write both languages, you read it from one and write a translated form in the other. We don't want to see machine translations as a machine does not always capture context and may missed key points in the translation. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 15:19, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Mcmatter OK I understand, thank you for your advice Mcmatter — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vajradiamond (talkcontribs) 15:29, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello Wiki,

My article is being rejected on regular basis,I would like to get some advice in this regard.

I have Good fan following who are interested to know about me and the works i have been involved, there are multiple interview telecasted about me on different platforms, so i felt wiki is best place where people can find complete details about me, in this regard i am adding my details here, would like to know what needs to change in my article to make this accepted.

Regards Preethi

Preethi srinivasa (talk) 16:55, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Preethi srinivasa: You shouldn't be writing about yourself, full stop. We are not interested in a rerun of the Seigenthaler incident. Every biographical claim that could potentially be challenged for any reason what-so-ever MUST be cited to a strong third-party source that corroborates the claim or, if no such source(s) can be found, removed wholesale. This is a hard requirement when writing any sort of biographical content on Wikipedia and is not negotiable.A little blue Bori v^_^v Jéské Couriano 00:34, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

21:37:25, 18 April 2021 review of draft by Delbarital[edit]


Sorry for bringing this up again but I feel like I'm stuck in a weird position. I checked the notability page and read the substantial coverage examples, yet they are irrelevant:

Examples of substantial coverage that would generally be sufficient to meet the requirement:
A news article discussing a prolonged controversy regarding a corporate merger, - this is irrelevant because although Next acquired two companies, there was no controversy.
A scholarly article, a book passage, or ongoing media coverage focusing on a product or organization, - this is irrelevant because the ongoing media coverage of insurance company is not something that happens, even for very large an well established insurance companies.
A documentary film exploring environmental impact of the corporation's facilities or products, - this is irrelevant because there is no environmental impact of next as an insurance startup
An encyclopedia entry giving an overview of the history of an organization, - this is irrelevant because we are talking about a startup
A report by a consumer watchdog organization on the safety of a specific product, - this is irrelevant because there are no potential safety issues when it comes to insurance
An extensive how-to guide written by people wholly independent of the company or product (e.g. For Dummies). - this is irrelevant for this type of service

Yet the company is one of the largest private companies in the world based on its valuation. The vast majority of startups in the list of "unicorns" have articles, while most have similar or less coverage compared to Next. For example: Ginkgo Bioworks, Stripe_(company), Carta (software company), Afiniti.
Furthermore, similar companies in the same space, such as Hippo (company), Root, Inc., Lemonade, Inc., all don't have in-depth references that follow the notability guidelines (as far as I understand).

I understand the guidelines, but it seems most articles about startups don't follow them, so I don't understand what am I doing differently that caused the article to be declined?

Delbarital (talk) 21:37, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Delbarital The issue is that a startup that does not have significant coverage (this list is a list if examples, not a definitive list) is not yet suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia.
Wikipedia:OTHERCRAPEXISTS is useful here. You are welcome, if you have a policy based reason, to nominate any and every article that does not meet the occlusion criteria for deletion. Over time Wikipedia has become tougher to get an article accepted in, Standards are being raised continually. Borderline articles where one turned a hair in, say, 2010, those would not be accepted today.
All you can do is concentrate on quality of referencing. Wikipedia:Too soon may well apply to your chosen corporation

I have been attempting to learn the ropes of article creation by submitting new pages about fashion labels not yet represented in Wikipedia. This submission was declined due to not being 'adequately supported by reliable resources' and as 'the submission appears to read more like an advertisement than an entry in an encyclopedia'.

Would it be possible to get some examples of where I am going wrong? I have only used mainstream media outlets as sources and as far as I can tell, the quality of my sources doesn't differ from other fashion-related Wiki pages.

In terms of language, all sentences basically paraphrase the sources, none of which are advertisements. It would be really helpful if you could point out some examples of particular words or phrases that are not suitable for an encyclopedic article; and also examples of sources that are not suitable. Thanks a lot for your help!

14:50:39, 19 April 2021 review of submission by Alhashish[edit]


I would like to create an English version of this Japanese article(https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/舐達麻). However my draft has been rejected as "not sufficiently notable for inclusion in Wikipedia". Actually this rap group is arguably one of the most famous rap groups in Japan at the moment. Some of its official music videos gained more than ten million views. I think this article is quite noteworthy for inclusion in Wikipedia. Alhashish (talk) 14:50, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

The article consists of links to YouTube videos and a link to the jawiki article about the topic. As it stands, this is not a properly referenced article and does not establish notability whatsoever. --Kinu t/c 15:48, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello! Sorry for the copy and pasted message below, but I have tried reaching out to reviewers about this question and am a little tired of typing it :(.


Question ---> Hello! Thank you for reading this and sorry for taking up your time. I have been working on an article with my partner for quite a while, but it has been denied multiple times. I believe you were one of the first reviewers on this article and I was hoping I could get some insight into how I can get this published.

First here is the article in question.

---> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Naoki_Terada

My first question is why has this article not been approved when the Japanese version has and is basically the same thing just translated?

Japanese article ---> https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%AF%BA%E7%94%B0%E5%B0%9A%E6%A8%B9

Also, I have been speaking with another reviewer, but I could not get a good answer from them regarding this. The other reviewer kept mentioning sources, but my partner found other similar articles that have much less sources than our article.

Article 1 ---> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arata_Isozaki

Article 2 ---> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazutoshi_Sat%C5%8D

Any insight or help you could provide would be great since my partner is really eager to have this published and we have been working on it for a very long time.

Thank you!

Hi Chatsha57. Each language version of Wikipedia operates according to its own set of rules, set by the community of editors who contribute there, so an article may be suitable for the Japanese Wikipedia but not the English one, or vice versa.
Wikipedia is forever a work in progress. It contains high quality articles and poor quality ones. The existence of an article does not mean it meets Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. It may only mean that no one has gotten around to deleting it yet. So it is not a good excuse to create similar articles. The essay WP:OTHERCRAPEXISTS may help you understand why. If you wish to learn from example articles, be sure to use only Wikipedia's best. --Worldbruce (talk) 17:36, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

16:15:43, 19 April 2021 review of draft by Acolytetchy[edit]


Hello,

I recently submitted the draft to the page Oded Kafri (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Oded_Kafri) for review, and it got declined with the following reason: "This submission appears to read more like an advertisement than an entry in an encyclopedia. Encyclopedia articles need to be written from a neutral point of view, and should refer to a range of independent, reliable, published sources, not just to materials produced by the creator of the subject being discussed. This is important so that the article can meet Wikipedia's verifiability policy and the notability of the subject can be established. If you still feel that this subject is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, please rewrite your submission to comply with these policies.".

I'd like to know more details about what I could change/add to the text to make this page possible to be submitted. Oded is currently a public person in Germany as an artist. Most of the information I could get were articles where his concerts / acts were taking place, some biography texts from interviews and relevant YouTube videos (over millions of views). I tried to take a good read at the requirements from Wikipedia, but it's been not so easy to understand how to do things correctly. It's my first time submitting an article and it's been a little bit overwhelming, but I wanted to do this for him, because as a street/studio performer the page would be of much meaning to him and to his career.

If there's a way of knowing more exactly what is sounding too "advertising" on the writing style, or what else is stopping the page from being accepted, that would be nice. Thanks, Acolytetchy (talk) 16:15, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Acolytetchy (talk) 16:15, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

This is an example of advertising "Oded has built a strong presence on YouTube mainly from videos made by spectators in the streets of London and Hamburg, where he used to play frequently." this is totally unsourced and YouTube videos confer zero notability unless they have been reported on in depth and with significant coverage in reliable sources.

21:15:56, 19 April 2021 review of draft by Maaj01[edit]


After my first draft of this article had been declined I added multiple secondary, international sources. However, the article has again been declined, which I do understand, as a Youtuber might not be in the primary scope of Wikipedia. The subject is unfortunately not very well covered by sources such as newspapers, thus making it a challenge to for me to confirm the article.

However, I do find the subject notable, as the reach is severe and comparable to other Youtubers who have been covered in a Wikipedia article. What can I do to improve the article and my editing- and researching skills? Thank you in advance!

Maaj01 (talk) 21:15, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

@Maaj01 all you can do is to look for references. 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. Providing sufficient references, ideally one per fact cited, that meet these tough criteria is likely to make this draft a clear acceptance (0.9 probability). Lack of them or an inability to find them is likely to mean that the person is not suitable for inclusion, certainly today. FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 21:54, 19 April 2021 (UTC)


Alright, loud and clear. Thank you for the help! I'll see if I can obtain more reliable sources and referencing. Have a good one! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maaj01 (talkcontribs) 07:22, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Help getting article approved. Why is the article being rejected in a matter of seconds? I made many changes from all the advise given, including changes from the person who rapidly rejected the article. Please help. I have met the Wikipedia criteria and have made all the changes suggested by everyone involved. Pilotmichael (talk) 22:08, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

@Pilotmichael as you have seen I nominated the draft for deletion before you submitted it for review. That discussion was already in train. I have rejected it for the same reasons in the deletion discussion, a discussion which you are wholly at liberty to comment in. You are advised to stick to policy based arguments since emotion almost never wins the day.
Why within seconds? I was looking at my watch list at the time you submitted it for review and it popped up as having been submitted. I rejected it because it is a blatant advert, and for completeness. Wikipedia is not a forum for you to promote your book. FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 22:15, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Why did you nominate it for deletion? Seems I was submitting at the same time and you were nominating for deletion. Why do you want it deleted, especially when I made the changes that you suggested. I have made numerous changes. Did you read them? I made the changes you suggested. Why would you reject it when I made the changes you suggested? This is not blatant adverting. The books are notable, and they meet the the Wikipedia standards. I have provided these facts surrounding this book series, including that they have received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. What more do you want? I and others have contributed to this article and have incorporated everything suggested. Pilotmichael (talk) 23:16, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

@Pilotmichael I have returned to look at this draft several times and to study the edits you have made. I saw that it was becoming a more and more highly polished advert, and I nominated it for deletion because I saw no hope of this draft ever passing our criteria. As a an editor with a conflict of interest you are standing far too close to what I am certain is the book series you have authored and have stated you receive no compensation from to be able to write a neutral draft about it. It is possible that I am mistaken, so I have chosen to let the wider community decide. Wikipedia works on consensus.
You are entitled to contribute to the discussion, where your views will be heard and weighed by the editor, usually an administrator, who closes the discussion and implements the will of the community. As I have said before, you need to argue based upon policy, not upon emotion. A deletion discussion is a process taking a minimum of a set period of time, unless certain criteria for closing it more quickly are met. You have ample time to marshal your arguments. Please join the discussion.
Looking at your contributions since 29 June 2016, all of them have been geared towards promoting this book. That is a long time to be an editor here without editing any other article. It can be concluded that you are not here to build an encyclopaedia, but are here solely for your own ends, and that your account is being used solely for promotional purposes.

00:12:54, 20 April 2021 review of submission by Vsk6-cs342[edit]


My submission has been denied twice because "my sources are not reliable." I genuinely just don't understand why my sources aren't reliable and I'm not sure what I can do to fix it. The sources I used were the only websites I could find that had biographical information about this person, and they seem like reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject to me.

Vsk6-cs342 (talk) 00:12, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

@Vsk6-cs342 yiu seem not to have understood fully the comments in the big pink decline boxes about references. You may find WP:42 a more digestible version. Each of the references you have chosen is an organisations "Flannel Panel" about Chapin, and is like provided by the person himself. These offerings often are. He owns the organisation that provided two of the faux references you have chosen. The book by Chapin is his work. His work can only be a reference in certain cases.
Let me try to explain. If they manufactured vacuum cleaners, the cleaners would be their work. A vacuum cleaner could not be a reference for them, simply because it is the product they make. So it is with research, writings, etc. However, a review of their work by others tends to be a review of them and their methods, so is a reference, as is a peer reviewed paper a reference for their work.

05:04:19, 20 April 2021 review of submission by Wikiboi77[edit]

I feel that Dallas' confirmation to the UM Supreme Court is worthy of being published in Wikipedia. You published an article on the Chief of Dallas' tribe (Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians) yet you will not publish his article. We are a sovereign nation and when our people accomplish things like being the FIRST NATIVE AMERICAN to be appointed, confirmed and serve on the SUPREME COURT of such a Prestigious University like the University of Miami it is news to us and many other Native Americans across the nation. I feel that that is wikipedia worthy. He is making strides for Native American Youth and blazing trails for young natives to get educated and better themselves. His story deserves to be told. Let the world see what a brave and bright young man that Dallas J. Bennett is.Just because his story and his success is not AMERICAN national news it is CHEROKEE national news and NATIVE AMERICAN National News. What's so wrong with letting him have a page on Wikipedia. Please reconsider your decision and please publish this article. It's not gonna hurt anyone. The second reviewer said it IS NOT notable and I do not believe that, the 16,000 people who belong to Dallas' tribe would beg to differ as well. I presented 2 reliable and independent sources that cover Dallas. I also presented one of Dallas' published works as an Associate Justice. I also included a quote from Principal Chief Richard Sneed commending Dallas and his accomplishments. He was recognized by the Chief!! His accomplishments are historical fo both the EBCI and The University of Miami. Please Reconsider your decision, this is not fair to Dallas or the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Wikiboi77 05:04, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

@Wikiboi77: this is not the place to tell that story. If others not connected to the subject write about it and it has a lasting effect that can be supported through reliable sources, then maybe an article can be written. What I would recommend instead of trying to tell us how great you are, try editing other articles and become familiar with more of the policies such as WP:AUTOBIO, WP:RS and WP:GNG. Other then that the draft has been rejected and will not be considered further. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 05:17, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

JASWANT SINGH 07 If you are writing about your company, you are a paid editor since the company compensates you with a salary. You do not have to be specifically paid for your edits. Your draft was rejected and then deleted, meaning it will not be considered further. Wikipedia is not a place for companies to tell the world about themselves; Wikipedia summarizes what independent reliable sources state about companies, showing how they meet the special Wikipedia definition of a notable company.

Hello, Sasha Yelaun is a producer (top billing) on multiple films. All of his supporting citations have sites linked with evidence and references. His name is also listed on several film titles in Wikipedia (we did not reference Wikipedia as instructed not to) The films included the Vanished , Monstrous, and River Runs Red. Please advise as I am his publicist attempting to get this approved and it is a noteworthy submission with many mentions available in top sources in the entertainment industry including Hollywood Reporter, Variety, etc.

Serial33$ If you are his publicist, you must review the paid editing policy to make a formal declaration; this is a Terms of Use requirement. You should also review conflict of interest. You also posted that you are him, so which is it?

The draft was drafted factually, and opinions and adjectives were excluded, but it is deleted twice. And it was also drafted similarly to many of the higher education institutes' pages in wikipedia. Could you help me on refining the draft so that it is good for submission please? Thank you. MZatNgeeAnnAcademy (talk) 11:11, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi MZatNgeeAnnAcademy. The draft must have been much more biased than you think to have been speedily deleted twice as unambiguous advertising or promotion. Having a close connection to the topic is a huge handicap when trying to write about it objectively. If you insist on continuing with the topic, try writing a draft using only independent sources, such as [1][2][3].
Ngee Ann Academy will not own any Wikipedia article created about it, and will not be able to control its content. If you don't write about NAA being a choice of students who can't get into public universities, and about NAA graduates having a harder time than public university graduates finding full time employment, then someone else will. Carefully consider Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations and the essay "An article about yourself isn't necessarily a good thing", lest NAA come to regret that there's a Wikipedia article about them. --Worldbruce (talk) 12:26, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

@Danielsuarez00:, you didn't ask a question, so I will guess you just want more feedback. The first thing you should look through is WP:GNG and WP:DIRECTOR and decide which criteria of the inclusion policy they meet. Then read through WP:RS to see what we need for references to verify the claims in the article. Of the references in the draft currently they consist on 1 press release, 2 that are discussing a music video that don't mention the subject. The last is an interview and does not meet the WP:INDEPTH requirements of the general notability requirements. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 18:14, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

DRAFT:Sabine Kacunko[edit]

Hello, I would like to re-make an attempt for an Wikipedia article about an artist from June 2020: It was rejected and later deleted with arguments of notability and references. Before I waste my time again, I would like to ask whether an updated translation of an existing Wikipedia-article (German) of the same artist would be better way to proceed. As I can see, the German article is not really updated (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabine_Kacunko)... I have also checked mentioning of the artist in some other notable artists´ Wikipedia-articles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ari_Benjamin_Meyers), so maybe this would be a more appropriate way instead of writing a new, more ambitious article? Thanks in advance for your feedback, and kind regards, Gimmeldal — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gimmeldal (talkcontribs) 18:21, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

My article was flagged "reads like an advertisement". I have gathered evidence from all independent sources and many reliable sources and have written the article from a neutral point of view, I do not understand why my article is marked as "reads like advertisement".

I am not advertising anything in the article, and I am totally independent of this person I am writing about. I need help to revise the article so it doesn't sound like an ad, such as where I should reword, what I should add more, etc. This is a polite ask for help based on the review. I would appreciate it if any experienced editor can help me point out what I should change.

Thank you so much!

Inspiress (talk) 19:31, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

I replied to this above so I will simply cut and paste the same text here. I can see why this was declined. There is a lot of WP:PUFFERY in the draft. Things like "She is known as the pioneer of Eldercare" Says who? Just her? The Career section is completely unreferenced and reads like that of a Resume/CV which is also a form of advertising. This is not neutral or stated by any source. Using her own articles as references to prove she wrote for certain publications is a form of WP:OR and can be considered advertising. Even listing each and every publication is a form of advertising, we generally don't care about newspaper or magazine articles they write unless they have made a major impact in her career. Listing highly cited academic writings may also be acceptable. This is the things I noticed from a precursory scan. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 19:48, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi Darzubair. Saying that Dar is notable doesn't make it true. The draft has been declined twice and finally rejected because, as one reviewer said, Dar "has not played or managed at the fully professional level (being an assistant coach at a professional football club is not a notable position, neither is being the head coach at a football academy)". You have repeatedly failed to show how you think he meets the notability criteria. Now you're effectively out of the game, having been shown a yellow card, and then a red card.

14:56:43, 21 April 2021 review of submission by Evgeniy Akimbaev[edit]

Hello everyone! I want to ask why my draft rejected? As an example, I used this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_P-06. But the only conceptual difference I see - my draft has straight links to some developer's socials, which by the way is also the main social platforms for the game itself. Will everything be fine if I delete these links or I need to fix something else? Evgeniy Akimbaev (talk) 14:56, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Evgeniy Akimbaev The draft tells about the existence of the game and its plot, but not much else. The draft needs to summarize what independent reliable sources state about the game. You have some links to what seem to be articles that potentially discuss the game, but don't otherwise mention them. The example article you cite(which isn't always a good thing to do) does discuss what independent reliable sources say about the game.
If you are associated with this game, please review conflict of interest. 331dot (talk) 15:11, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

How Can I make this so the submisison gets accepted?

You can't. It was completely unsourced; note that other Wikipedia articles are not sources, per WP:CIRCULAR, nor is Spotify. Please see Your First Article, and I might spend time editing existing articles first, to gain experience before attempting to create a new article, which is the most difficult task to perform on Wikipedia. 331dot (talk) 19:13, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

19:02:26, 21 April 2021 review of draft by John From AMRS[edit]


My article has been denied and flagged for speedy deletion because it was seen as only to "publicize and promote a business". In contrast, the article is a historical overview of the company that doesn't mention anything dealing with the sale or advertising of products, services, or the like. I would like to see how I can go about getting my draft proofread and revised rather than speed deleted. Thank you for your help! John From AMRS (talk) 19:02, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

John From AMRS Wikipedia is not a place for businesses to tell the world about themselves, and has no interest in what a business wants to say about itself or what it considers to be its own history. Wikipedia is interested in what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about a business, showing how it meets the special Wikipedia definition of a notable business. That means Wikipedia is interested in what others completely unaffiliated with your business consider its history to be. The sources in your draft are 1) the company website, which is a primary source, 2) an annoucement of a routine business transaction, 3) the company website again, 4) an announcement of a niche industry award- which while likely notable to your business, is not on the level of an Academy Award or Tony Award, and 5) a simple profile in a directory type website. None of these things establish notability. Please see Your First Article for more information. 331dot (talk) 19:10, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

I was wondering if there were any specific suggestions or areas of the submission that need worked on to be approved. I felt as though I had cited a variety of sources and based it on other wikipedia pages about experts in the same field that it should have been approved. Look forward to hearing from someone. Lmaher14 (talk) 01:46, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

The draft as written is a unsourced paragraph atop a cirriculum vitae. I should also note that, since drafting didn't exist in any serious form before 2011 and wasn't mandatory before 2018, not every article on Wikipedia went through the same process your draft has to. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Jéské Couriano 03:17, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi there, ezrawitsch here, author of Draft:Wade Graham (writer). I've added a few dozen new references and external links substantiating the notability of the subject. Graham and his works have been extentisvely covered in US and international news sources, and Graham has made dozens of television appearances both as commentator and subject, including as a guest on The Colbert Report in 2011 and an interviewee in several PBS documentary series.

What if any additional sources I should add, and are there are needed formatting changes before I resubmit for review?

If possible, I would request review from a user familiar with Los Angeles/landscape design/environmental history so that further comments are as specific and actionable as possible. Thanks and happy editing.

21:38:54, 22 April 2021 review of submission by Inspiress[edit]

I have proceeded to revise my article from the first help I got, and I got stuck on improving a few points of my article:

  • I was suggested to write about the person focusing on academic notability guidelines. However, upon working on it, I have noticed that it would go in the direction of her academic work having notability rather than herself as a person having notability. That being said, she has been interviewed by various newspapers as a person who came up with her theory, an entrepreneur of a consulting company, and an expert in her field. I need more help in determining her notability criteria because I believe she has sufficient reliable sources to cover more than one notability criteria. Additionally, please read the article and determine if she falls into any notability criteria (roughly is fine).
  • I would like to have an experienced editor to take a look at my article thoroughly to suggest on the article organization, any irrelevant/trivial information and check for any advertisement-looking aspects of my article.
  • I am stuck with trying to mention she is a columnist because there is no independent source mentioning her as a columnist other than her own articles being published by newspapers. Writing columns is also a major contribution of her in her career, and it's a pity that I cannot prove it via independent sources when there are officially published articles (published on the news agency website) & archived articles (since many are from 2009 where many newspapers did not have an online platform yet) online. Is it really impossible to mention her columnist aspect? It takes away one of her major contributions of publicly advocating.


NOTE: There are some things I would like to clarify about the article before anyone reads it.

  • I have not written a full-blown article of her (aka it's a draft) because I do not know which criteria I should dig deep into about her, please DO NOT bother about the lack of information at this stage. However, for your reference, I have already written out her major contributions, thus at this stage, there is nothing that I have not mentioned about her, to say the least.
  • Although the list of columns I have written out about her looks long, it is NOT all the columns she has ever written (I have so far found over 80, and it seems like she still has more that I have not discovered yet). I have titled the section "Selected columns" from the first but some might think I have listed all of her columns, which is not the case.
  • The following sections I can consider omitting, if necessary:
Role in the United Nations section
Honor and Awards section

I look forward to any experienced editors' help! Thank you!

Other wikipedia entries about living persons have far fewer references.

I have submitted this article for a novel multiple times. I have been repeatedly told it was unsourced even though this novel is a primary source according to Wikipedia's guidelines. I could not make any changes because an error was never identified and the people who rejected it were unable to explain what was wrong with it or how it needed to be changed.

Now for no reason I have been told this book isn't notable even though it's a book that can still be purchased and an episode of the TV show "Touch of Frost" was based on it. Something I did mention in this article. Just what criteria does a book have to meet to be "notable"?

Uanime5 (talk) 22:58, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Uanime5 Primary sources do not establish notability. To merit an article, independent reliable sources with significant coverage must show how this book meets Wikipedia's special definition of a notable book. The article should summarize those sources. 331dot (talk) 00:13, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

As this was first attempt at a Wikipedia article, I followed a Wikipedia page from another notable art fair (i.e. Paris Photo) to have this article be written similarly in a neutral point of view. However, it was not accepted as "This reads like a promo for the exhibition"(?) ~ Do I need to edit by removing adjectives or certain words as to me it reads almost similarly? Also, the references are in question, yet I am mostly utilizing sources from art publications (yes, they may not be the New York Times (I do have a Los Angeles Times though), etc. but as this is a notable art fair, it is odd that major art publications are not considered as reliable?).
