The 'conflict of interest' rule makes no sense in my case. Also it can easily be cheated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wouter Drucker (talkcontribs) 19:01, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 19 January 2015[edit]

There is currently a discussion at Template talk:AFC submission/declined#Template-protected edit request on 19 January 2015. Thought I should post about it here in case anyone watches this page and not that one (since the sibling templates’ Talks redirect here). — (talk) 11:15, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Create a separate "failure" page for notability from sources[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that if you state that your topic may not be notable, you are linked to this page with a large button in the middle stating "create new userspace draft". I think that the article wizard should not be encouraging new users to create articles that are not notable - the article was just get deleted/draft will get declined if submitted as a draft. Frankly, it's quite cruel to suggest creating a page about a topic that may not be notable, because the user may spend several months fruitlessly working on their draft about a non-notable person which has no chance of getting accepted anyway. This only drives them away from Wikipedia, while clogging the AFC workload with non-notable subjects, a lose-lose situation in the end. In fact, although I started this message with the idea of differentiating the failure pages for sources and notability, without sources a draft will have no chance of getting accepted as well. I think it would be a better idea to encourage new users to write about another topic, or edit a couple of existing articles instead. If people agree with this I can draft up a different failure page for both sources and notability. Thanks! Darylgolden(talk) Ping when replying 14:12, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

I support this, as we have a ton of people come into the IRC channel where we tell them their declined article will never be accepted. Cutting them off before they start seems like a good way to prevent people from wasting their time. Primefac (talk) 14:16, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Per this discussion, and my own opinion, I've BOLDly removed the "Create a userspace draft section". — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 16:04, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
