Gambling in Cuba[edit]

There appears to be no article for Gambling in Cuba, yet we have many articles like Gambling in the United States, Gambling in Mexico, etc. Here's an interesting article we could use as a reference.Zigzig20s (talk) 02:49, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Seeking feedback on draft article for James F. Allen[edit]


Hello, project members. Since editors here may be more familiar with industry leaders, I'm hoping I can get some additional feedback on a draft I recently submitted to AfC. Full disclosure: This draft article for James F. Allen, who serves as chairman of Hard Rock International and CEO of Seminole Gaming and has led the Seminole Tribe of Florida's gaming operations since 2001, was written on his behalf and as part of my work with Beutler Ink.

The draft was declined by User:SwisterTwister for being "Too suggestive of an advertised business profile for clients, notability cannot be inherited from others and the sources are largely consisting of simple announcements, local business journals, notices and similar." I posted a reply on the draft's talk page, and received a response in the form of an additional AfC comment that said the sources were "not significant weight-ful of notability, including because they include local business publications and similar". I'm not entirely sure what this means because I thought the sources used are considered major publications (for example, Forbes and The Press of Atlantic City); it would be helpful to get editors from here to take a look and point me in the right direction, or help confirm notability. My goal remains to have the draft deemed accurate and neutral, and moved into the main space.

I appreciate the AfC process and SwisterTwister's review of the draft, but this process has not really provided specific ways to improve the draft, so I'm casting a wider net and reaching out to people who may be 'watchlisting' this page for additional input. I've posted similar requests for feedback at WikiProject Biography, and on the Hard Rock Cafe and Seminole Tribe of Florida talk pages, but so far no one has responded. Is there anyone who is willing to review this draft and provide additional feedback? Thanks in advance for any help. Inkian Jason (talk) 17:45, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

I am marking this section as 'resolved' since the article has been moved into the main space. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 19:41, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Gambling, and what articles may be deserving of more attention.

"Professional gambling"[edit]

I don't think Professional gambling should redirect to Advantage gambling, since professional gamblers exist, and its a different topic from that covered at "advantage gambling". This needs an article or should be a redlink -- (talk) 02:58, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

BetStars - new page[edit]

Hi WikiProject Gambling,

I would like to instate a new page for BetStars, which is the sports betting brand of The Stars Group, ultimate owners of PokerStars, Full Tilt and other brands. I would like to propose copy which is based on the Group's annual information form, which necessarily does not contain any ambiguity or sales material. I am, however, reluctant to create the page myself because I am employed by the Group and am conscious of a conflict of interest.

Information from the annual information form can be found here, on page 6:

I would be quite happy to suggest the content myself, or help with any requests for relevant information you might have.

Wiki articles are based primarily on coverage in third-party reliable sources, rather than information directly from the primary source. You probably should read here, WP:COI, and then find a more general wiki talk page to ask about a good way forward. 2005 (talk) 01:35, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
