Things you can do

Saket Suman[edit]

I do not usually edit articles on journalists, so am a bit unsure about what to do with this article and the connected Beyond Books. It all looks pretty spammy to me, but i4d appreciate IT if one or more editors more familiar with this kind of stuff could have a look at these articles. Thanks! --Randykitty (talk) 16:23, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Beacon Reader[edit]

Requesting someone to take off the speedy deletion tag for Beacon Reader. I've barely started it. For the record, I have no connection to the organisation at all. Travelmite (talk) 15:01, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Searching sources for news sites[edit]

Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? I tried template:find sources but the barrier I'm running into is that when you search 'news' on a news site, most of the articles you find are from the news site itself. Is there a way to exclude a web site from the results so that you only see if the site is mentioned on other sites? Ranze (talk) 06:49, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

On google you can exclude specific websites with a minus sign. For example, if you wanted to find other sources covering The New York Times without the NYT website actually showing up in the search, you can use these search terms: "New York Times" -nytimes.com. Is that what you mean? PermStrump(talk) 07:48, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Rachel Bridge[edit]

The article on Rachel Bridge has been tagged for notability since 2008. I'm wondering if a member of the project can have a look and help determine if the subject is a notable journalist or not. K.e.coffman (talk) 00:54, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing attention to this. It is marginal at best and is written like an advertisement. I've nominated for deletion. I note that it was created by an SPA and is apparently self-promotion. These kinds of articles often fall through the cracks and I find are quite common as articles about publicists and journalists. Coretheapple (talk) 12:55, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Reliable Circulation Figures for Newspapers[edit]

For US newspapers, circulation figures used to be cited from the Audit Bureau Circulation. However, this source is no longer available, and I don't know if there is a good replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions for a reliable source for circulation figures? Thanks. Gamesmaster G-9 (talk) 01:18, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
