Hi Penshurst Victoria - A decline always includes an explanation, you will find it in the pink box at the top of the page. The explanation also always includes links to relevant guidelines. If you have further questions after reading the decline and the linked advice you're welcome to return here. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 13:37, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Peter_Olsson_(Motorsports_driver)[edit]

We would like to get some information up about Olsson's expertise in chiropractic care. He has run a successful practice in Bedford UK for almost a decade now and can provide copies of his qualifications and multiple patient testimonials - but unfortunately hasn't been interviewed in local press or anything about it - so it's a little difficult to provide the types of citations we would like to provide.

What would we need to provide to include a few sentences about his practice? Thanks for any guidance you can provide. Mstephens01 (talk) 06:33, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

We do not permit this encyclopedia to be used for marketing and promotion of a medical practice or anything else. To whom does the "we" in the prior post refer, anyway? --Orange Mike | Talk 11:43, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Hussein Sabbour[edit]

Please I need to know why my article is declined while I am writing about a very notable character in Egypt who constructed many famous projects in Egypt. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FAcebook88 (talkcontribs) 12:31, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Your article was deleted four times, which suggests the community are generally not satisfied that the person is as notable as you think. For comparison of a subject who we do think is notable in Egypt and has designed famous projects, have a look at William Willcocks, who designed the Aswan Low Dam.

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Your submission name here[edit]

The spelling of Tzemach Feldstein was changed to Cemach which is incorrect. I changed everything back to the correct spelling of "Tzemach". I was not able to change the spelling in the article header. Would you please do it so that the article is correct? respectfully js luterman — Preceding unsigned comment added by Luterman (talkcontribs) 12:54, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Review of Draft:The American Association of Anthropological Genetics[edit]

I recently received the following comments on the rejection of a Wikipedia page that I authored.

"Though the organization is notable, the article is written as a press release, and was probably copied from a previously ublished source. We already have an on their journal Human biology (journal)--consider expanding it, and restricting this article draft to the information about the Society as such."

I am new to Wikipedia authoring, so I am not sure how to edit the page the address the concerns raised. First, I am not sure what is meant by "written as a press release." I have never written a press release or a Wikipedia page, so I am not sure how they should differ from one another. Any feedback I can get on this would be helpful.

Second, I assume the reviewed was trying to say that the article was "copied from a previously ublished>>>unpublished source." This is simply not true, so I am not sure how to fix that. I was interested in writing an article about the organization, so I contacted two of the founding members to ask them questions and get suggestions from them on further reading. I combined these sources with my own firsthand knowledge as a member of the non-profit science organization.

Last, the reviewer suggests expanding on the Human biology (journal), but I am not sure why. They are connecting organizations, but also separate entities.

This is my first Wikipedia page and I am very excited to improve it to meet the reviewers expectations. Any advice or feedback would be most appreciated. AJGenetics (talk) 15:10, 19 May 2014 (UTC)AJGenetics

@AJGenetics: I'd like to clarify: the wording sounds promotional, as if it were a press release. Often that sort of content is copied from somewhere else. It is as likely that you are too close to the subject and wrote this content yourself. I did notice the sentence "Annual AAAG meetings are held in conjunction with the annual meetings of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (AAPA)" is copied from unless they copied from Wikipedia. Citing content does not excuse violating copyright. The article's wording is too flowery and the detail is unnecessary. Without many independent, reliable sources, much of that content should simply be cut. The recommendation is that you merge content about the association into the article about the journal until there's enough to be spun-off into a separate article. Finally, the association doesn't have a definite claim to any notability. Chris Troutman (talk) 03:43, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Hilco Global[edit]

Hello, I recently submitted an article about Hilco Global for review and it was flagged as advertising. I am unsure why this happened and would like some explanation as to why this has occurred and possible how to fix it. We have found that many of Hilco's competitors are on wikipedia and we tried to use a similar template to draft our article. please advise at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Polacheck's Jewelers[edit]

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Polacheck's Jewelers[edit] Hi! I am new to Wiki, and I'm not sure how long the review process takes for articles? I think it's been stuck in articles for creation for some time now. Also, when i created the account, I thought that I was supposed to create the account under the article name, not my own. My email address is correct in there, but I can't change the username.

You will need to add references showing that the business has been the subject of significant coverage in multiple independent reliable sources. See Wikipedia:VRS for more information on this requirement. Once you have done so, you could resubmit the page for consideration by putting {{AFC submission}} at the top of it. There was previously a Resubmit button on the page, but you removed it in one of your edits. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 08:38, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

hi! i made the requested changes, can you let me know if there is anything else i need to do or if it's approved?

Review of User:GreenLips/sandbox[edit]

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Bill Haney

Need some help - trying to help an ex-client (currently retired) get posted. No- I am NOT doing this for money or pay. Just trying to get a guy on Wiki that should definitely be there. He's been involved as an author, publisher, or project mngr with over 200 books.

Also pinging User:Aggie80 to reply here please. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 20:54, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Pinged! See Talk The Ukulele Dude - Aggie80 (talk) 22:58, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for yours. I take the blame for giving people the impression that there is money being exchanged or that Mr. Haney is still an "active" client. He has been retired for some years now. That doesn't stop me from admiring him and being grateful for his mentorship to our company. He simply loves books and we create books. He has shared his vast knowledge, experience and to some degree, contacts with us all free of charge and out of the goodness of his heart and as previously mentioned, his love of books. Thanks again.

Review of Draft:Daniel James Brown[edit]

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Daniel James Brown

I've edited the submission for author Daniel James Brown in response to reviewer's Chris Troutman's feedback. Please verify that the second version has been correctly uploaded. The message for the initial submission is on the top of the page after the second submission, making me unsure if the second version uploaded properly. How are edited resubmissions handled? Do they go to the end of the queue? to the original reviewer?

Thanks for your help. I'll get the hang of this.

Granitedesk (talk) 19:44, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

They just go into the queue, not in any particular location or order, and anyone who wants to can review them.
I have this question, or comment, for you. Barnes and Noble is a bookseller, right? If so, how is their comment about this person's work of any use in proving the notability of this person, based on what you have already been told? --Demiurge1000 (talk) 20:50, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Turkish Philanthropy Funds[edit]

Hi, According to the reviews since I have last submitted the post, there has been corrections and new edits to the article that we have written. I would like to ask if the article will be submitted for submission and if there are any edits that need to be made in the meantime.

Thanks, Ipek Ib598 (talk) 21:13, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
