02:27:52, 8 August 2022 review of submission by SamanthaCola[edit]

I'm not sure why my page is being declined due to lack of notability. The musician has collaborated with other artists with similar catalogs that all currently have wikipedia pages (which I linked to) and he was part of a national copywrite lawsuit with Warner Bros, which I also cited. Thank you for your help! (talk) 02:27, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A musician is not notable because they associate with other musicians that have articles(not "pages"). For a standalone article about this musician, you must show that they themselves meet the special Wikipedia definition of a notable musician. 331dot (talk) 08:14, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request on 02:52:25, 8 August 2022 for assistance on AfC submission by Trit6611[edit]


My draft got rejected again for insufficient notability. However, I believe that I have fixed the first reviewer's request for proof of the use of the term "disease modifying treatments", "disease modifying therapies", or any other variations of that term by adding eight more examples of the use of that term beyond the scope of "disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs." These other examples included secondary source references of the "disease modifying treatments" term being used in various other medical literature such as HIV/AIDS, ischemic heart disease, and numerous neurological conditions that are beyond the scope of rheumatoid arthritis and have treatment classes beyond the scope of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. Therefore, I was wondering if I could get more guidance on what more I could do to make the article notable enough to be approved. Thank you very much for your help and time!

04:40:14, 8 August 2022 review of submission by Bennair[edit]

I specifically fail to understand why this page is being rejected and considered as promotional. This page is about Union Coop, which happens to be one of the largest Consumer Cooperatives in the UAE today and is prevalent among the Emirati community in Dubai specifically. I will really be thankful if the moderator could point out specific CONTENT which is going against Wiki policy. Thank you for your time and Kind Regards, Bennair (talk) 04:40, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bennair The entire draft is promotional. Wikipedia is not a place to merely tell about something and what it does(such as, among other things, listing its press releases). A Wikipedia article must summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about the topic, showing how it meets the special Wikipedia definition of notability- in this case, the definition of a notable organization. The sources you offered are entirely announcements of routine business activities, which does not establish notability. 331dot (talk) 08:11, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

19:39:24, 8 August 2022 review of draft by Notadean[edit]

Hi - this if my first submitted article and I'm actually not sure what I/we can do to convince the reviewer that the topic is appropriate for Wikipedia. There are numerous newspaper articles, including both local coverage and US-national news coverage, of the events discussed and outlined in the draft article, including both factual primary and secondary review/opinion articles. The article itself provides the history of an important academic program at one of of the two major universities in Montana, from it's creation in 2000 to it's dissolution in 2019. Over that period, the program trained thousands of students and performed nationally and internationally recognized biomedical research in the area of Neuroscience. In addition, the program was the first Neuroscience training program (undergraduate and graduate level) in the state of Montana, making it an historically important program.

I'm glad to take a stab at revising, but really not sure where to start -- any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Notadean (talk) 19:39, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey @Notadean! The first thing I notice while looking at the draft is that there are a lot of completely unsourced paragraphs. For example, the history section doesn't have any references. In general, you should try to make sure that at least every paragraph has an inline citation that supports it.
You can also try to look at similar articles to see how they are laid out. If you look at Department of Journalism, City University and Department of Law, University of Calcutta, you can see they are much shorter and just summarize the information. >>>; 19:52, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Notadean (ec) A Wikipedia article about a university department should summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about it, showing how it meets Wikipedia's special definition of a notable organization. It sounds like it could be notable, so you are partway there, but the sources and article content are the issue. Most of your sources seem to be either primary sources, which do not establish notability, or news reports that mention the department. What are your three best non primary sources?

August 9[edit]

00:56:48, 9 August 2022 review of submission by Joshua Grech[edit]

Hello reviewer, I am trying to submit my article 'Rolling Line' article for creation however I am having trouble with its acceptance due to lack of 'reliable sources'. This is not my first time publishing articles for Wikipedia as I have successfully published the article: 'Burnett_railway_bridge' however the article 'Rolling Line' article is about a video game which has different types of sources.

I have attempted to use secondary sources to achieve a neutral point of view, although due to the nature of the topic (being a video game) most sources would appear as if they were a promotion of the game. In spite of that, I had tried to use articles which would give feedback in both the pros and cons about the game. I had only referred to primary sources when regarding the development of the game and gameplay elements.

Please let me know how I can resolve this problem and perhaps which articles would be the best for citing. Cheers

Joshua Grech (talk) 00:56, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Joshua Grech: if you cannot find suitable sources to satisfy the WP:GNG notability standard, then you cannot publish an article on this topic, it really is that simple. (Okay, yes, there are some exceptional topics that are considered inherently notable, but alas video games isn't one of them.) -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 10:47, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pedroedugz I published an article twice but it keeps getting declined. I have followed all the criteria needed for drafting an article. Why does it keep getting declined?

Lucynder (talk) 07:40, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Lucynder: three of your sources don't work, one is used twice (as in, with a duplicate rather than named cite), one talks about the issue of human trafficking rather than the film, and the YouTube trailer is meaningless in what comes to supporting the draft; this leaves basically just one valid source, which is not enough to establish notability. And given the problems with some of the sources, this also means that much of the content cannot be verified. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:04, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How do I delete the duplicate of the first article (the duplicated one)? Can the sources (references) that do not work be highlighted? Lucynder (talk) 08:16, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have highlighted the non-working ones, marking them as failed (this shows up in the text, right after the source is cited, rather than in the References section).
You don't need to delete the duplicate source, I was just making the point that there is one less source cited than what is listed in the References. If you want to use named references, see WP:NAMEDREFS. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:32, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

18:48:33, 9 August 2022 review of submission by Livitshiro[edit]

I am wondering why the page was rejected, I am aware that the sources are fairly exclusive to the esport it belongs to but that is because they are the most relevant references and since all of his teammates have their own pages I think it should be accepted but if it's not I can work with more specific examples of what is wrong so that I may add or adjust as needed. Livitshiro (talk) 18:48, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Livitshiro: the problem with niche publications is that they (perhaps understandably) think everything in their space, in this case esports, is newsworthy; they also tend to accept a lot of press releases and other marketing material, without applying any real journalistic judgement. Furthermore, many of the sources cited in this draft are primary, and don't contribute to notability in any case.
The whole thing is also very promotional in nature, and quite informal in tone, and could IMO just as well have been declined for those reasons. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 06:47, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

20:58:51, 9 August 2022 review of submission by WarMagician[edit]

I'm seeking advice on how to get this page published. I have limited the page to the bare minimum to constitute a page. All of the sections are factually accurate, and I've included citations to external sources to back these up (such as Companies House details, Times Educational Supplement articles, government website list awards status, etc). I've avoided any language which would constitute an advertisement. Could I trouble a reviewer to advise on what I should do to get this one over the line. Any help gratefully received!


WarMagician (talk) 20:58, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WarMagician The draft was rejected, meaning that it will not be considered further. No amount of editing can confer notability on a topic. Wikipedia is not a place to merely tell about an organization and what it does. Any article about an organization must summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about the organization, showing how it meets Wikipedia's special definition of a notable organization. A small number of high quality sources is preferable to a large number of low quality sources. The reviewer rejected the draft because they think the changes of establishing notability are low.

My draft for a new article has been declined. However, I am not sure what I need to change in order to make it fit for publication. Cou you tell me some concrete things that I can change? (for instance: remove a particular source, or change a particular sentence)

@Panoramics: you may want to review WP:FRINGE, for starters. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 09:58, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
According to that page, wikipedia articles about fringe theories should be neutral, without original research, and verifiable. I am not sure which one is the problem for my article. Could you tell me which of those requirements fails for the draft?

Does the draft look neutral? Does the draft look like original research? Does the draft look verifiable? Panoramics (talk) 10:06, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Panoramics: there are many unreferenced statements, which immediately raises a possible OR red flag. And some of the sources cited are distinctly non-RS.

Selim31081993 (talk) 12:32, 10 August 2022 (UTC) Hi there,Reply[reply]

I'm just wondering what else I can do to get a Wikipedia page about myself published? I have made a start, and if you can take a look at my profile, suggest anything I can do further to increase my chance of being published. I do have quite extensive experience on my belt including involvement in the community, and would like to know what else I can do to get a page published for myself?


Selim C.

Hi @Selim31081993: to put it bluntly, you shouldn't, and (judging by the content of your draft, so far) almost certainly cannot, "have a page about [yourself] published". Wikipedia is a global encyclopaedia, not a social media platform or similar, and you do not create a 'profile' just because you would like one. Once multiple independent and reliable secondary sources have published significant coverage of you, an article can then be created summarising those sources, but even then this shouldn't be done by you.

@RealHamzaPlayz, your perception of fame has no bearing on whether someone meets our criteria for inclusion, we define as notability. If no one not connected to the subject has taken the time to publish in depth coverage on the subject in reliable sources then you are wasting your time trying to create one for him. Your time is probably spent elsewhere promoting him through social media you will only find frustration here trying to push it. McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 17:59, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  2. Cite several secondary sources that are reliable and truly independent of the subject, to demonstrate notability per GNG.
  3. Ensure that every material statement is supported by citation to a reliable source.

Please review the comments left by the last reviewer. Language like "Secondary Capital is aligned to a fundamental shift that companies are staying private longer" is just blatant advertising. Any article about this company must not merely tell about the company, what it does, and its strategy, it must tell us what others wholly unconnected with the company have chosen on their own, with significant coverage, to say about it, showing how it meets the special Wikipedia defintion of a notable company. It appears that several of the sources don't even mention the company, and that the article is more about their business strategy than the company itself.

Secondly, based on what you say, you must formally declare a conflict of interest (COI); I will post a note on your user page with instructions. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 11:10, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for reviewing this page. It would be helpful if you could provide some more information about why this submission was rejected - is it that the organisation needs more references in media articles? Or perhaps that I work with them and was the one who created the page.

Request on 15:30:04, 11 August 2022 for assistance on AfC submission by TravelingFollower[edit]

I have done my best to make sure I "refer to a range of independent, reliable, published sources, not just to materials produced by the creator of the subject being discussed" I haven't included any citations from Talisen's official channels besides one Twitter post mentioning the attendance of a conference. A majority of the sources are coming from the St. Louis Business Journal, clients and partners of the company, and official government records.

I have disclosed on my talk page that I have been working closely with Talisen Technologies. Is there any change I need to make on my talk page to get the warning of an undisclosed paid editor removed?

I did realize some numbers that were included in sources I had that I added made the article seem like an advertisement and I have since removed them. Any other advice that I can make changes with? Thank you in advance.

@TravelingFollower: clients and partners of the company, as well as most types of gov't records, are primary sources, and do not contribute to notability. looks like a secondary source, but trade press of this kind are notorious for accepting press releases, marketing materials, etc. without much scrutiny.
In any case, to save the reviewers having to plough through 40+ sources, could you please point out (eg. on the draft talk page) the 3-5 strongest ones in terms of being independent and reliable, secondary (genuinely), and providing significant coverage, per WP:GNG? Thanks.

Didn't realize that primary sources didn't contribute to notability. Added the top sources on the talk page. St. Louis Business Journal articles are all written by separate staff reporters over a 20 year long period without the hallmarks of similar press releases, I have reason to think they aren't PR.

(edit conflict) @TravelingFollower: Except for Twitter, LinkedIn and a press release, the sources seem independent (edit - with the caveats pointed out by DoubleGrazing). The problem is that the news is routine, and to a lesser degree, somewhat regional. There's nothing that suggests this company has done anything except but be a fairly successful medium sized company. The standards for notability are higher than ever. Even I just had an article deleted for a multinational software company covered in the Wall Street Journal that's valued at $5.6 billion. I think you should go back to your team and tell them there's just not enough non-routine coverage to get an article approved. TechnoTalk (talk) 16:07, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. First of all, I don't mean to cause any harm with my suggestion. I just simply believed it would be relevant to have a Wikipedia Article for the British/German actor. Articles exist in German and French and I believed an English on would be of interest. Given his English work. I don't not work for him nor do I represent him. I am just a film and series enthusiast. I am dazzled because I did not expect such a response but I obviously respect your guidelines.

Also, the interviews that seemed to be a problem include a paragraph which is third party speaking on his performance.I have added another article from the glamour magazine that is third party only.

Hi Team,

I'm not sure why the page is being rejected. not sure how to write it without sounding like advertising. They're the facts about the company and I don't even have any affiliation with them, I just know about them from my previous employment with a tech company, they wore using their services and since i edited similar companies I've noticed they're not liste.

I need to understand how to do this without it being declined. I mean I've read many other wiki pages about other companies and I used a similar language.

I will probably be writing about more tech companies and projects, they will be corporations and some non-profit research and projects.

Please help with some bullet point guide lines and directions.

Thank You.

@Neophytte: I looked at the difference between the previous decline and the more recent one, and you didn't really add anything new. Apple and Amazon links are not signs of notability, and the other three sources are just passing mentions. Scanning the other sources that were there already, it appears to be a large number of music web sites, showing him as a participant in a band or album, but not much about him specifically. Without profiles focused on him, it's hard to show that he's notable, at least as far as Wikipedia defines it. Take a look at WP:NMUSICIAN for more about the notability requirements for musicians.

Hello! I have submitted three drafts of an entry on the "dot big bang" video game. Each was declined. With each draft, I addressed the feedback with improvements – the first was a notability issue, which I believe has now been supported with the inclusion of substantial press coverage; the second had a tone issue, which I have carefully improved to adhere to the available guidelines; the third issue was a lack of "reliable sources", which I believe has now been addressed with official web pages, and coverage from market-leading games industry outlets. The third draft seems to me to have fully addressed all the feedback given, but was rejected again – I am now at a loss on how to continue improving the article, and would value additional feedback from an experienced mod/editor. The draft article is here: Thank you in advance for your help and feedback! I hope I can improve the article further and get the piece approved! :) (talk) 14:59, 12 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

21:43:20, 12 August 2022 review of submission by Pcwstallion[edit]

Thank you, I very much appreciate the feedback. The issue I have is that in wrestling, especially British wrestling, the commentary team will not have as much press about them as the wrestlers themselves, even though they add so much to the wrestling product. We are the people that make the connection between the wrestlers in an arena and the audience at home. We won't have "and starring..." in the credits as in wrestling we don't have credits because it would ruin the suspension of disbelief, however I have 20 years of experience, the last 10 have had a TV presence in one way or another having had or a hundred episodes/shows broadcast with me in them. Without wanting to sound like a diva with an enlarged ego, I think I am worthy of a page, especially with me branching out into other areas of entertainment. Not only that, but for the historical moments I have been a part of which may seem insignificant with regards to feats such as discovering a new species or curing a disease but within our sphere it isn't. Being the commentator for the first Pride wrestling event in the UK for example is massive within our circles but it is the wrestlers who, quite rightly, deserve the main headlines however this does does diminish my role within proceedings. I can certainly add in pages where I have my profile on their website but for the reasons I have listed, I cannot really add a lot more. Think of us as being a bit like weather presenters. We are part of the news team, but we wont get any glory or interviews (and there are weather presenters who have their own pages). I absolutely implore you to review my page again with all of this in mind. Thank you for your consideration.

SchinLBL (talk) 01:45, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @SchinLBL: whether one should go through AfC when creating an article depends more on the creator than the article subject. If you don't have the necessary user rights, you cannot publish directly. If you have a conflict of interest, you also should go through AfC. And even if neither of these applies, you may still prefer to use AfC, especially if you're not yet very experienced, so that you can have your draft checked, to reduce the risk of being deleted soon after publication.
In the case of an upcoming recording like this, there will almost certainly be a much wider choice, both in terms of quality and quantity, after it is released. Best, -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 06:09, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Four months (or more) for an AFC review? WTH?[edit]

I created an article last month on John E. Havelock, former Attorney General for Alaska and the author of the state's privacy amendment which protects (amongst other things) those seeking to terminate a pregnancy. He's been dead for almost a year. He was quite prominent in that state for many decades, running for the U.S. House in 1974 (finished second in primary) and U.S. Senate (finished second in general). It's a good article, well sourced, with a public domain photo, contributed to by another AK Wikiproject stalwart. For the first time ever I was diverted to AFC which contemplated a 4 month (or longer) delay in review. What's up? I contributed to another article, the attack on Salman Rushdie, which probably shouldn't even be an article, but I doubt it if was delayed by four seconds. P.S.

I don't know how that diversion occurred in my case. I've probably been creating articles on diverse subjects for a decade, and it had never happened before.
