Catherine WilkinsEdit

Request on 17:04:07, 15 March 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by ChislouEdit

Hi. Can you let me know what 'Please connect the references to the article and do not leave them as embedded links' means? I am not sure what to do. Thanks

Chislou (talk) 17:04, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Chislou I've gone ahead and fixed the references. It needs to go into detail on what books she wrote and how they were received by critics. Were there any that were best-sellers, or did she get any rewards? When she ranked number one, was it a relative ranking, like hers was the best, or she was just listed among a bunch of other authors the newspaper writer recommended. Do you have any news articles that go into Wilkins's life and career in more detail? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:10, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Request on 18:32:57, 15 March 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by ChislouEdit

Thanks very much for amending the references and I'm sorry I didn't understand the instruction :)

I have the following link about her personal life and providing the citation for her marriage:

Her stand up comedy reviews are hosted on chortle which is a fairly official comedy source:

Aside from those two Guardian reviews all of her book reviews are by book bloggers which likely wouldn't count as proper sources

The Independent ranking was more a placement in their list, the first of its kind. She hasn't been in best seller lists, just ranks highly on amazon when they do kindle offers

She was nommed for a FAB book award:

Does any of this help?

Thanks again for being so helpful! Sorry to be such a wiki dunce :)

Chislou (talk) 18:32, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Chislou, those are helpful. I also found this from The List (magazine): although that's written by Wilkins. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:46, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Request on 18:52:05, 15 March 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by ChislouEdit

Thanks for confirming those sources help. Should I add them and submit again for review? Or is this something you are doing behind the scenes in reviewing? Thank you again for your time tonight

Chislou (talk) 18:52, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

See if you can find some sources that would meet WP:THREE and post them towards the top of the article in the AFC comments section If they are detailed and cover Wilkins's career, then those would be best. The book reviews are good, they should be talked about more in a career section, like "Wilkins released a children's book (book 1 title) in 2012. It concerns the (premise brief plot summary). The book became a (accolades and best-seller rankings if appropriate). (Critic) of (critic magazine) wrote that (quote)" I'm not really doing much else behind the scenes. The marriage and children stuff can be supported by other news articles that mention both her husband and herself. You don't need to include the references where her husband just passively mentions "my wife Catie", but there are some good articles that go into more details like Hope that helps! AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:01, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Request on 20:20:41, 15 March 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by ChislouEdit

Hi. I have gone into more detail about her comedy and about the podcast, and submitted the changes for approval. The Catherine 'Catie' Wilkins titling you have done is a good idea, as she works in equal amounts under both names. Thank you for your continued help.

Chislou (talk) 20:20, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Can you write up more about her comedy background and the subjects she covers? Same with the Drunk Women podcast. The comedy seems to be her main occupation, so I moved that up. Also had to tweak more of the references, please take a look. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:31, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Should her article be renamed to Catie Wilkins? That seems to be her stage name for her comedy act, where she uses the full Catherine in her books. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:33, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi. I have gone into more detail about her comedy and about the podcast, and submitted the changes for approval.

Thank you for your continued help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chislou (talkcontribs) 16:23, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi. Not sure if I posted correctly before so just posting again to say I have made some requested edits. Is it ok now? Thanks. Now adding this brackets and tildes thing to sign the post hopefully correctly :) (Chislou (talk) 21:07, 26 March 2019 (UTC))

Chislou, I bounced this back to you for more feedback. It needs to be organized more concerning the history of his career. It sounds like she is a comedian first, and then author and podcaster later. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:26, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, I have rearranged the text to make it flow chronologically. She started comedy in 2004 whilst working on her books, then got published in 2012 when she did her final Edinburgh show and took a break from comedy to be an author, then returned to comedy in the podcast in 2018. Hope it works better now. Thank you for the guidance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chislou (talkcontribs) 21:49, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Request for help with AfC submission by Leeuk01Edit


I've made the suggested changes to a new article I created after it had been declined but the re-submission hasn't done anything new since. Is this to be expected?

Thank you in advance!

--Leeuk01 (talk) 18:13, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Leeuk01, it usually goes back in the AFC submissions pool where any of the reviewers can take a look again. I added some more feedback. It needs more outside news sources that talk about the station. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:11, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi AngusWOOF, I've added some more external links to the page. I copied the same format as other radio station pages and added the same topics of content to make sure this page is also as relevant as they are. Thank you.

Leeuk01, those are press release kind of announcements that don't really go into detail on the station. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:04, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Crime JunkieEdit

Hey! It's Via and I wanted to let you know that I edited my draft article, Draft:Crime Junkie Podcast I took your suggestion and I was wondering if you could take a look? Thank you, --via (talk) 03:43, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Is my article needing any more edits before it can be approved for submission? I would appreciate more feedback on how I can approve the article. Thanks for your time : ) via (talk) 02:25, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Odeadiawashere, can you throw in more news sources? Right now it only has Rolling Stone, maybe Vulture, but could use more to back it up. Otherwise any of the AFC reviewers can take a look. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:06, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
Odeadiawashere, try these:

AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:14, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi AngusWOOF, its me again and I took a look at your sources and did my best to incorporate as many as possible into the article. Thanks for your help and for reformatting the article, it was looking rather messy before! If you don't mind taking another look at the article, I would definitely appreciate it. I hope it can soon be approved :) Thanks for your time! via (talk) 15:50, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Odeadiawashere, thanks, I sent it through. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:02, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

RADII: DRAFT Prior to Resubmission InquiryEdit

Hi there!

This is my first time pushing through an article and asking for help: I submitted a draft a while ago under Yina1999 about a new media outline focused on China and had some trouble finding mentions of it deep enough that Wiki would accept. I found 2 or three extras I could use, and am wondering if they would be sufficient to satisfy the issue raised with my draft submission of RADII. Would you be willing to review them briefly: and .

Thanks Lena Yina1999 (talk) 05:19, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Lena, both articles are written by RADII staff, and don't really discuss the company. What the draft needs are news articles that discuss RADII. The one currently on the draft only mentions the company in passing. The others are from the company itself or one of the key people's linkedin page. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:36, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Made desired changes to article please help publishEdit

Hi, I have made the desired changes to the page for Dr. Khurram Kayani. Kindly check and help me publish that. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drbadloti (talkcontribs) 22:08, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Drbadloti, please see my feedback on that page. Also identify WP:THREE of the best sources concerning this person up front. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:25, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Article rejectionEdit


I understand where you are coming from with your rejection but that guy lived 4500 years ago or so. The amount of data available is rightly scarcer under the circumstances, but he still got a place in the Giza cemetery. The intent was to document most of those persons who were the highest layer of the Egyptian society of their time to produce a whole mass of information which seemed relevant. I started to edit the Giza East field but there is too much for one page even if apparently there is too few for one page. Infraneka (talk) 12:00, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Infraneka, if there are multiple different sources that describe this person, then that should be okay. I wasn't sure given that the reference was pointing to the same document. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:07, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Infraneka, I've accepted the article and cleaned up its references. If you have more please add. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:52, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Paulo's many articlesEdit

Hi Angus! FYI, an AfC you declined a couple of weeks ago Draft:Paulo Victor Soares, which the author has re-submitted and is currently pending, is duplicative of an article we already have called Paulo Victor Costa Soares. The mainspace article (which was created after you declined the AfC) is at AfD, and the article's creator is currently blocked for creating too many unsourced BLPs and editing while logged out. Also note that the editor who is creating the draft also has another draft going of the same article, Draft:Paulo Victor, and has also !voted keep at the AfD of the mainspace article. I wasn't sure how to post a "heads up" to reviewers that these two drafts are duplicates, as I've never done anything in draftspace before, so I figured I'd give you the heads up. Please let me know if there's something further I should do, like post a template or something on the draft articles' talk pages. Thanks. Levivich 15:10, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Levivich, If they're created by sock evaders, you can CSD them for that. I'll comment that they are duplicates of the one that's currently in AFD. I think they can end up being redirects to that article if it stays and they can be deleted if the AFD results in delete. Or delete for housekeeping as the creating editor is now working on the mainspace article. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:06, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I guess I'll see how the AfD shakes out and go from there. Good to know it won't be taking up reviewers' time at AfC. Levivich 01:41, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Levivich Paulo's article survived AFD so I converted both of the drafts into redirects. Thanks again for tracking these down. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:42, 19 April 2019 (UTC)


Hi AngusWOOF, thanks for reviewing the draft article Draft:FutureBrand. I would be really grateful for some clarification on the reasons for declining the submission if possible?

The draft article includes references from AdWeek and Fast Company (detailed articles on their American Airlines rebrand), The Wall Street Journal (article on their acquisition strategy) CNBC, Forbes and Fast Company (describing their research and findings) and Creative Review (full feature of their work rebranding NatWest).

Sorry to ask but given the status of these publications, the nature of the content in the articles, and the focus on the company in question, can you help me understand why in your opinion they don’t establish notability or show more than a passing mention?

Having looked at other pages in Category:Branding companies for reference, could you also help me understand why the following examples show notability more effectively than this draft?

Moving Brands, Lippincott (brand consultancy), Prophet (company), Brand Union, Lambie-Nairn, Traction (company), Brand Institute, Master-McNeil, Tinsley Advertising, Saffron Brand Consultants, Interbrand.

Appreciate your help.

--Woollara (talk) 16:06, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi AngusWOOF, are you able to help clarify the above? Thank you.
--Woollara (talk) 10:19, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Woollara, I see a ton of passing mentions of the company as it collaborates with other companies, so need your help to identify WP:THREE articles that best cover the article. Forbes should not be from contributor section. You can post those three at the top of the article and resubmit. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:53, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

A response to the refusal of Zack Snyder's Justice League cut pageEdit

This page is separated from the main Justice League (film) page for several reasons:

- The main Justice League page is protected.

- This is an intial page, and it's planned to be expanded in the future, since there's alot of ongoing information about the cut; it's history and confirmed differences from the theatrical cut, for example.

-The search for Zack Snyder's cut of Justice League is trending, since it's confirmed by the director himself, therefore, there's a potential release for this cut in the future.

-The cut is speculated to be completely different movie from the theatrical cut - similar to Richard Donner cut of Superman II, which has it's own page on Wikipedia - for several reasons: -The cut uses different soundtrack, visual effects and tone (similar to those seen in first Justice League trailer, before the departure of Zack Snyder). -Several scenes are completely reshooted by director Joss Whedon (rather than Zack Snyder). -The cut has different length. -Several characters made an appearance in the cut, but did not appear in the theatrical cut (most notably: Darksied), additionally, the cut uses completely different design for the main vilain Steppenwolf.

Snake Fisher (talk) 16:41, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Snake Fisher, you'll want to discuss it at the main page's talk page then. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:43, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

AngusWOOF, Pardon me, I'm still a beginner, and I still don't know how to open a discussion in the main page.

Snake Fisher, go to Talk:Justice League (film) and click New section, and you can paste your plan to split off the Snyder cut and reasons. And then you can see what editors there think of that plan. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)


Hi angus hope you're great My article went live two months ago as it was reviewed by legacy as per your suggestion you told me to add more further links & references , i added three references from news site which was published last month, but someone put deletion tag, I'm not blaming him but it sounds like he don't like the content as the deletion tag guy looks like indian & the film is showing few anti indian scene such as befitting response to india over ceasefire violation. According to Wikipedia movies should have references & I've added three news references which is showing in google news then how come it is nominated for deletion? I see this article "evil marriage" it has two reference & not from news but from random website & it is live.

I'm dissapointed kindly suggest. MemonBhai (talk) 11:36, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

MemonBhai, you should go to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Operation 786 and show them why the film is notable, and the WP:THREE references that would indicate so. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 14:55, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Eren's name SpellingEdit

Hi, I've had to deal with a certain user who refuses to believe that non-english sources, even if they are from the episodes themselves, count towards it. ( for example: ) I've dealt with him before, but I can't do it by myself. May I ask for your help? --OmoriP (talk) 00:27, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

OmoriP, I asked about it in Talk:Suite_PreCure#Spelling_of_Ellen/Eren back in 2016. Any news since then? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:33, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

I've discovered since then that official info from canon sources (Official spelling from Toei: (in-show evidence), (commercial card game evidence) ) that it is spelled Eren, and that fansubs have called her that, before the official spelling was revealed. Again, this user has been harmful before, belittling me for being a new user. But I refuse to back down, since the article referred to her as Eren before he messed it up. --OmoriP (talk) 00:38, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

OmoriP, you can't use in-animation spellings as they can be Engrished. Is there other evidence they are using it as the English official spelling? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:49, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
OmoriP, are there official English subs, like released by Crunchyroll or Toei, that spell out the character's name? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:51, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

I showed you the other Spelling from the official card game, which spells it as Eren, Alongside an official book scan from the 10th anniversary special booklet. And guinness world records spells it as Eren, too.

There are no official subs yet, however. --OmoriP (talk) 00:57, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

OmoriP, those aren't English websites though, except Guinness World Records. And you'll need to convince Sk8erPrince, not me, about it. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 01:05, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

New Article RejectionsEdit

Review of Draft:Aerofly_FSEdit

Hello AngusWOOF, Thanks for your previous review, I fully agree your remarks. I hope my last edit will satisfy you. It's true that the article may look complimentary but it is not exaggerated. About the 3D engine for example, Aerofly is much much better than its competitors, it is just a fact. Thanks for your feedback, Vincent. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Turman (talkcontribs) 13:37, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

I have read your last review. I don't understand why I need to make a reception section for the reviews. I have never seen that. Could you please detail it or give a sample from an existing article ? About the other part of your review: in fact FS2 is the notable version as FS1 was more confidential. I'll try to explicit that in the article. Thanks, Vincent. Turman

See Sonic the Hedgehog (1991 video game) for example. It doesn't have to be from a video game review website, but from the other flight simulation / computing reviewers. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:11, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Initial D Wiki CitationsEdit

It's kinda hard to write episode names or volumes as sources for citations, as Funimation hasn't licensed Fifth or Final Stage (both are licensed to Avex Entertainment Inc.), and there are no Youtube videos that I'm able to link it to. I am a little new to Wikipedia editing now that it's been so long since I've edited anything(I had a previous account before this one a long, long time ago), so I'm unaware if there is a way to cite it without having to cite a Youtube video or other online video type, since Avex Entertainment blocks all videos including clips of Fifth or Final Stage. I also have no volumes of Initial D manga, so I'm unable to cite that either unless I can find what volumes certain scenes are from.

Hawk Studios Gaming (talk) 02:54, 5 April 2019 (UTC)Hawk Studios Gaming

Hawk Studios Gaming, you can cite the episode like this {{Ref|Anime|S1 ep 2}} for season 1 episode 2, which generates S1 ep 2. I'm going to move the others away from the older citation format in favor of this one. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:00, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

A bit confused. Whenever I try to copy/paste that into the page, it creates this box with the link inside of it instead of just the small attachment. A little help? (Also, I have the feeling you're using Source, while I'm using Visual Editor judging by the look of the thing I keep copying (S1 ep 2). (EDIT: Nevermind. I now see that you were using source.)

Draft:H&K Group, Inc.Edit

Hello; you previously reviewed and declined this draft on 2/25/19. I have made the changes you pointed out, and stripped the page down considerably. As I made the editorial changes based on the guidance of your specific notes, it should now be acceptable. I understand that it could take up to two months to be re-reviewed, as Wikipedia states, but with 3 weeks passing I figured it could do no harm to simply let you know that the page has been resubmitted.

Hi, I can't thank you enough for the help with my draft: Danny P. Dietz, It's greatly appreciated. I noticed that you stated possible glowing praise for the soldier, upon going through the draft with this perspective in mind, I realized you were right, I was showing a lot more support and nearly becoming somewhat biased. I have done some cleaning up of the draft, it would greatly be appreciated if you could go over it again and tell me if anything else is faulty. Thank you! User:Delta fiver (talk) 20:01 , (UTC)

My GRC webpageEdit

Hey, I was the one who requested the Green Run Collegiate page to be published. I just wanted to explain that there is a Green Run Wikipedia page but not a Green Run Collegiate page. They are located in the same building but are two completely separate schools so that is why I wanted to make a separate page . (Ina0124 (talk) 21:21, 10 April 2019 (UTC))

Can you find some more news articles about Collegiate, and expand upon the two different schools? See also talk page for Talk:Green Run High School. If it's going to be split, then the Collegiate stuff should not be on the High School page, unless they are affiliated, like students can attend either classes / programs?

Anil K. Chauhan PageEdit


I hope your day is going well. Thank you for taking the time to review my page. I am really needing some specific recommendations on changes that should be made so that I can get this page approved. I am open to any suggestions that you might have. Thank you! RYANMICHAELMILLER (talk) 22:30, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

RYANMICHAELMILLER, the main thing is that it should not read like a resume statement, but be more of a biographical description. It should also be supported by external references that are independent of the subject. If there are news articles that write up about him, use those, not the ones within his immediate research groups and communities. As it stands, it reads like it was copy-pasted from an academic profile, so of course it will contain a lot of resume-stuffing activities and positive things to say about the person.I suggest rewriting the career section completely and in somewhat chronological order. In (year), he worked at (place) where he studied (main topics). While there, he published several papers that were (recognition by the community). (further recognition). He also founded (organization) in (year). Have another paragraph on Try to explain briefly what topics he worked on and link those to other Wikipedia articles. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:53, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
RYANMICHAELMILLER, the article was deleted for being too promotional / advertising. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:00, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Robert W. StallmanEdit

Why isn't the Award reference and the items under References adequate for showing reliable secondary sources? I have also posted my COI on my page.

Dan — Preceding unsigned comment added by DanStallman (talkcontribs) 22:48, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Dan, the award page is a Wikipedia page so it can't be used as a reference per WP:CIRCULAR. The rest of the material you cited come from Stallman himself which is either WP:SELFPUBLISH or WP:PRIMARY. We need sources that are secondary and independent of the subject. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:42, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Ok, one last stab at this. Can the number of authors that cite his work count as "secondary and independent of the subject"? ........................................................................................ (I was thinking this is independent) - Referenced - Cited 35 times - College library - Harvard abstract search - Cited - Lecturer at MIT - Cited by Florida Geological Survey ..............................................................................

I found these after I searched for robert w stallman hydrogeology. My apologies for dragging you through the minutia, my attempt is to highlight his work without boring the reader with his technical content. I am beginning to think I do need to add content about how much he published and was cited.

Regards, DanStallman (talk) 00:23, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

"Wikipedia is not a memorial page. You need articles that are not self-published or the standard obituary to show notability." You are correct, I did not read this. Let me add the correct content, within 2 weeks.

Bradley Cooper (politician)Edit

you have rejected the publication of the article Bradley Cooper (politician) and you gave reasons such as not enough references and not proving him to be a notable politician. You said in a comment you made that him serving the school board doesn't make him a politician and I would agree but he has done a lot more than working for the school board he has worked with campaigns of some of the biggest politicians in Missouri and even the president would it help if it were to say political activist. and also how many sources would you say is enough to make it good enough? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smallman1093 (talkcontribs) 00:50, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

See WP:GNG and WP:NPOLITICIAN But if you have WP:THREE that you can clearly indicate are secondary sources independent of the subject, post those. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:56, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

would it help to change politician to political activist because brad is heavily involved in politics and the campaigns while maybe not being a politician himself he has been involved in them — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smallman1093 (talkcontribs) 01:06, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Smallman1093, when I look up "Bradley Cooper politician" or "Bradley Cooper activist" I get mostly political stuff concerning the actor, unless I add in Missouri, then I get "student" as occupation [1] [2] and it doesn't seem that notable. We need more sources that give him an occupation besides being a student that's appeared in the local news. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:58, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Well of course the actor is going to get more coverage than him and he is a student but the Kansas city star article talks about him being involved in the campaigns of both josh hawley and Donald trump and the columbiam article mentions him as a volunteer with the Greene county republicans neither of those are just saying student — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smallman1093 (talkcontribs) 03:22, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Smallman1093, I renamed the article to (activist) AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:08, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

DYK nomination for Sarlacc's Pit caveEdit

Hello, I have completed a DYK review for an article which you made substantial contributions to. I noted some questions at Template:Did you know nominations/Sarlacc's Pit cave. If you are interested, please respond there. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 15:33, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Miraculous: Is it distributed by Toei Company?Edit

Hey, I'm still thinking about Miraculous Ladybug being distributed by Toei Company. I know that I have been doing my past edit on Miraculous Ladybug being distributed by Toei Company because Toei Animation is owned by Toei Company. Should I use add a "citation needed"? Or what should I do? PascalMuganyizi (talk) 18:26, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

PascalMuganyizi, I'd just WP:DROPTHESTICK on that. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:09, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
What's that mean? Why'd you'd WP:DROPTHESTICK on that? PascalMuganyizi (talk) 15:33, 20 April 2019 (UTC)


Hi. You requested three sources to reference about wiki draft subject, Nora Herting. Here they are for your reference: 1. 2. 3.

I have edited the draft according to your feedback as well. Rhashiva (talk) 15:46, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Rhashiva, the second article is co-written by Herting, so it is considered primary. Do you have any others? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:26, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes, here's one Rhashiva (talk) 19:48, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Rhashiva, the Forbes one is coming from a contributor section so that doesn't meet reliable source per WP:RSP AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:50, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

My mistake, I missed that requirement. Please consider this one instead Rhashiva (talk) 20:04, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Rhashiva, please take some time to reorganize her career section as it jumps years back and forth and is rather confusing. Also list the WP:THREE sources up front there. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:12, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Draft ArticleEdit

Hello again AngusWOOF,it's been more than a month since I worked on the article Draft:Alliance School Kermanshah which you declined to take out of the draft, but it is still there and no one has touched it.I wonder if you could check this forgotten article again. It is good that you help me create better articles.Thank you Alex-h (talk) 19:03, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Alex-h, can you explain what you meant by "was". Is the school no longer around? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:07, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
AngusWOOF , I just added some information showing this school does not exist any more(after Iran's anti-monarchy revolution).If you take a look at my articles, the scope of my work is human rights and history. I don't know much about schools.I translated this article from Wikipedia Persian. It is now ready for your checking. Alex-h (talk) 14:35, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Alex-h, it's difficult to keep as a separate article when it could be added as a single paragraph in the Alliance Israélite Universelle article or can be expanded upon in a new [List of Alliance Israélite Universelle schools]] with an entry like:
But I'll let other reviewers check for this. WP:WITHIN suggests it be merged. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:18, 20 April 2019 (UTC)


Hi AngusWOOF,

Thank you for reviewing my submission so quickly. I'm having a tough time figuring out what it will take to get Draft:Audiodog to pass muster with regard to references and/or album reviews. I've modeled my article after one about another album by the same artist (Transformer (Bruce Kulick album)), and at this point mine parallels the example in most ways (including references and such); StraussInTheHouse seemed to think the beefing up I had done to my draft after he first declined it would allow it to pass upon resubmission (please see User talk:StraussInTheHouse#Draft:Audiodog for additional details).

Your comment was, "Need more album reviews." Would it suffice to add and cite an excerpt from the review here, and/or add a reference to the rating here in the Professional Ratings box? Can you say whether the Transformer article has something mine lacks, or suffers from the same problem?

Thanks for your guidance,
Lardofdorkness (talk) 19:10, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Lardofdorkness, it needs a paragraph section where it summarizes some of the major reviews by music journalists. Not just a corner rating box. Regarding allmusic you could write "Greg Prato of Allmusic said that (criticism detail)" Discogs is not a reliable source. You'll need more reviews. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:15, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Lardofdorkness, you can also add the Greg Prato part where they compare songwriting styles with the other members as per [3] That it's being reported from a Kiss Encyclopedia book is helpful. Also, can you can also add a paragraph about the origins of the title being named after his dog Joe, per [4], I know it's a primary source but still useful for background information. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 15:10, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Will do - thanks for the review and additional suggestions. Lardofdorkness (talk) 15:27, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I pushed the article through. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:27, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
I appreciate it, AngusWOOF -- thanks for your help getting my first article published! Lardofdorkness (talk) 18:03, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Examples of Concerns on Canada and the Armoured Combat Vehicle (ACV)Edit

Thank you for your comments on the subject draft article.

As this is my first ever article, could you provide some examples of where the draft fails to meet the following requirements?

       Submissions should summarise information in secondary, reliable sources and not contain opinions or original research. 
       Please write about the topic from a neutral point of view in an encyclopedic manner.

Thank you,

Bluenose Gunner (talk) 20:44, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Bluenose Gunner, please see WP:NOTESSAY, as the article is formatted like it's coming from someone's research and opinions on the subject rather than a description of the subject. If you want to talk about ACVs in Canada, then the intro paragraph should describe what that is, and then provide sections on history, reception, legacy (if no longer in used) AngusWOOF (barksniff) 20:50, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Bluenose Gunner, also note there is already an article on Armoured fighting vehicle and Tanks of Canada. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 20:53, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Request on 18:27:34, 15 April 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by GiantsarethebestEdit

Hey AngusWOOF - the sources are from independent and well established news orgs. The articles are also written about the subject and not just mentioning in passing. Jenny Lam will be running in SF's first ever special election for school board commissioner. Do I need more content + sources?

Giantsarethebest (talk) 18:27, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Giantsarethebest, is a primary source / press release, so it is connected to the subject. The other article is a secondary report on it, but attributes statements made about Lam from the mayor's statements and not from its own research, so it is echoing the press release. You need to find some more news articles that aren't either. But SF Chronicle otherwise is okay for one source. You need more. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:38, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

angusWOOF, Pulled some more sources but they all generally reference the same day/topic/events as Jenny Lam is new and there's not much published info on her.

Video game Article NotabilityEdit

Hi there. The game Heaven's Vault is notable despite being new. Urigamer (talk) 13:09, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Urigamer, can you add those into the article for Reception, especially any where the video game website meets WP:VG/RS as reliable? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 13:52, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Urigamer, it looks like Hahnchen pushed this into mainspace already and bypassed AFC together. Jovanmilic97 has since added a decent number of WP:VG/RS reviews so you can continue developing it there. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:19, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

virtual kitchen brandEdit

Thank you for your suggestion. I added it as category for ghost restaurant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Isybells (talkcontribs) 14:45, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Isybells, it needs to be condensed a lot more and not be as redundant as the main article. How are the three types defined? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 14:52, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Request on 18:10:42, 17 April 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by DoinashalaruEdit

I've edited the Dr. Beth Shubin Stein page a few times already and have also added the Creative Commons license on her site in order to use images from there. Is there anything else that I should do for the page to be published?

Thanks! Doinashalaru (talk) 18:10, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Doinashalaru, you need to rewrite the biography in your own words, not copy-paste it from her public profile at You also need news sources independent of their website to show Stein is notable. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:27, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Help with new pageEdit

Sorry, this is my first time attempting to do anything on Wiki. I'm trying to create a page for the Police Department for which I work. I know LOTS of facts and I personally am the Historian for the department but it's difficult citing facts.

For example, I cite the City Clerk of Owasso as the citation for when my Police Department was officially formed. When I cite Owasso City Clerk, do I need to specifically write her name at the time? Or how else would I cite that person/position?

Also, I list many facts regarding changes through the decades. I make statements based on photographs I have of the decades, for example I make statements regarding uniform changes because I have pictures to back it up, but how do I cite picture that I have?

Lastly, I make statements on the page I'm trying to create because I was here for them, or personally interviewed the people that worked here at the time. How do I make a citation based on an interview of someone that was here at the time?

Sorry for all the questions — Preceding unsigned comment added by Owasso940 (talkcontribs) 22:19, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Owasso940, thanks for drafting the page. A lot of the details are coming from within your organization and would be better suited for writing up for your organization's website. Wikipedia needs sources that are independent of the subject to show notability, so consider outside media such as newspapers or local television websites. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:40, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Owasso940, kindly check WP:PSCOI as well to help self-disclose your connection to the group. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:48, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Request on 13:01, 17/04/2019 for assistance on AfC submission by AlexChristofiEdit

Hi - the draft article for Max Porter (novelist) now has a couple of dozen references, very broad ranging from all the major UK news outlets, and reference to his numerous prize wins / nominations. This should be sufficient to establish that he is a prominent UK novelist and is often talked about without reference to any TV or film adaptation.

Hello, AngusWoof, which date is season 4 of Talking Tom and friends coming out? Oreratile1207 (talk) 06:23, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Draft:Trans Euro TrailEdit

Hey there, thanks for giving me hints on what was missing on my first article in the English wikipedia ( I added more information and references, and linked quite some text now. Better and acceptable now? Thanks and have a nice day, Schwenn (talk) 14:25, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Schwenn, you need more secondary sources that show the founding / naming / approval of the trail and its maintenance. As it goes across multiple countries, how is it maintained and managed? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 20:28, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

CrowdshippingEdit Hi AngusWoof. I've revised the page and updated the sources. For two of my main sources, the archive url is not working, and I seek your advice for the resolution. Other than that, please provide any feedback and recommendation and I will make the changes. Thank you very much. I'm looking forward to your feedback.


Hi Kate, it needs more background as to how the specific term came about and how widely used it is. See WP:NOTNEO and show how it is not just a recently made up term. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 20:24, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision) articleEdit

Hi... With respect to your rejection of my BSV draft, I note that there are standalone Wiki pages for both Bitcoin Gold and Ethereum Classic, other hard forks off existing blockchains, and both of those cryptocurrencies have significantly smaller market-caps than BSV. GorgeHoward (talk) 22:48, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

GorgeHoward, you'll have to convince folks at Talk:Bitcoin Cash that you have enough coverage on the Bitcoin SV for it to now have its own article. But it needs to be more notable than the most recent AFD which is less than a year old. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bitcoin SV AngusWOOF (barksniff) 20:22, 22 April 2019 (UTC)


Can you review and let me know if there are any options left.

I am new to wikipedia and I must say that it seems to be a very dangerous place for people that would like to contribute to the history of our world.

You have been very friendly and collaborative, but this is not the norm and it really should be.

Draft:David WelchEdit

Thanks for your feedback. Truth be told, I was not keen on writing about myself, but I was told editors of major journals in the field should have pages. But I obviously undersold myself :) I actually do meet the criteria (e.g., two named chairs and a University Research Chair), but I would rather someone else created the page anyway, so I have tagged it for deletion. Cheers, DW — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dwelch60 (talkcontribs) 19:25, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Dwelch60, no worries. If someone writes one up, you can make sure they follow WP:NACADEMIC and if they are connected to you or your research group, they should self-disclose. There's also WP:PROUD, which, if you have a public article, people could write stuff about you that isn't always positive but fair game. You can also make suggested edits on your draft's talk page.
