Please look at Artical I fixed the problem I think I have full use I am a soon to be student going to the school thanks God Bless --Amanda.useta (talk) 22:43, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Hmm can u tell what the hell do the Wikipedia required to get an * article Soloking.303 (talk) 13:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

See WP:BIO, WP:FILMMAKER and WP:GNG. You need to show that your producer is notable by providing secondary sources such as news articles. Also, does not need a filmography table of yes/no's unless he has had a diverse set of roles within production. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 15:48, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Draft Article RevisedEdit

Hi AngusWOOF You left me some feedback on an article I was creating for an Australian actor Alex Rathgeber. You rejected the article as it didnt have enough content or referencing to vallidate him being worthy of a Wiki page and enough reference validation. I apologise for the error. I am a new editor and I saw that the time to 'accept' and review a new article/page said up to 5 weeks so i thought I would input some of the info I had collated on Alex rathgeber and then publish so it would get into the queue for approval. I planned to go back and finish filling it all out with much more info and references - and obviously wrongly - assumed Id get to that before it was even looked at for approval. I have gone back and re edited the article and added in way more information and heaps more references. I do believe Alex rathgeber is eligible for a wiki page. He has won a national theatre award in Australia, headlined upwards of 10 professional mainstage productions and performed a lead role in the West End, as well as appeared on two world premiere cast recordings and his own album. I have re-submitted the page/article now that I have added more info. I was wondering if you were able to take a look at it and let me know if you think it needs anything else - or what else I may need to add - to get his page accepted. I am also wondering if you have any info on how to obtain a photo for the artist? I know there are strict copyright rules. Thank you so much again for your help. Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers Tim T E Mclean (talk) 06:00, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Tim, if you can find some more news articles that discuss Rathgeber's career, that would give him more notability. You need ones that focus mostly on Rathgeber himself, not ones where he is passively mentioned among the cast. In the comments, please highlight those articles. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:17, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Angus, Apologies - which comments section? DO you meant paste some articles here in response to this talk? Or is there a comments page I am overlooking on the Draft for Alex? Cheers T E Mclean (talk) 07:49, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Danyul Brown EDITEdit

Hi Angus Thanks for the comments. I have now made changes to the article and connected the references to the piece. Let me know if this is ok? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Assistantpage020 (talkcontribs) 22:33, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Assistantpage020, I've pushed it forward. You can keep on working on it so that it gives a biographical narrative on how he became famous. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 15:17, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Angus, will this now appear in google search engines as its own Wiki page or do I need to develop the article further for this to happen?

Assistantpage020, it's a regular Wikipedia article. Whether it gets picked up by Google search or whether, who knows, I suppose it should? That's up to Google. But keep working on it, and add more useful content, and sometimes down the line the subject might even mention the article in a Twitter or something.

Request on 21:54:28, 3 January 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Michael E NolanEdit

Hi. You recently rejected my article, "List of people from Morelos." Fair enough. I didn't even know there was a category for "people from" and have added it to the articles about "Morelos" and "Cuernavaca."

My first question is about the word "from." Does this mean "born in," and if so, why? Often times people are born in a particular place, but most of their lives and/or their most important achievements occur elsewhere. Three cases in point: The state of Morelos is named for Jose Maria Morelos because he won a key battle at the city of Cuautla during the Mexican independence movement. Yet he isn't mentioned in the "Morelos" page, and there is no list of "people from Cuautla." The second example is that the current governor of Morelos and past mayor of Cuernavaca isn't listed in either list. The third case is that a past president has lived in Cuernavaca since his retirement 40 years ago. None of these men were born in Morelos state, yet I think they are notable.

My second question is about adding people and/or localities to the list. Can I do this directly by going to the lists? Or will a 'bot' do it? Again, I don't know if people like General Morelos or President Echevarria belong on the "Morelos" list, but I believe Governor Cuauhtémoc Blanco does. He was an international soccer star before he became a politician but did not live in the state at the time. Should he go in the "athletes" category? What about an actress like Maria Felix? Or artist Diego Rivera, who lived in Cuernavaca for several years and made important contributions to the state?

Thanks for your help.Michael E Nolan (talk) 21:54, 3 January 2019 (UTC)MichaelENolan

Michael E Nolan (talk) 21:54, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Michael E Nolan, the list is okay, but should be organized better. As it covers the entire Mexican state, it should either be sorted as an alphabetical order list or by sorted by general categories instead of regions. Regarding your questions: 1) "from" typically covers notable residents whether born there or staying there, so yes, if a political leader retired there, you can add them to the list. If the list was intended to be only people born in state, then that's a different scope of the article. Regarding adding people to the list, are you talking about the draft list or the categories? If it's the categories, you can add the particular category to the individual's article. Hope that helps! AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:11, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Submission at Articles for creation: Camp Glenorchy - RejectedEdit

Hi AngusWOOF, I see that you declined my article about Camp Glenorchy. Would you be able to explain to me why? You mentioned that "Need more secondary sources independent of the subject" - what do you actually mean when saying that? Just wondering what you think I could do to improve my article so that it is accepted?

About the declined article on "Bullitt County (film)"Edit

Hi AngusWOOF! Thanks so much for the notes on my recent draft of a new article for the film Bullitt County. As per your suggestions, I have added a slew of additional sources related to the release and reception of the film as well as reference to more festivals than just the world premiere.

Celalettin-Field Quantum Observation Tunnel - Hey AngusWOOF, even you will be impressedEdit

I have re-written it encyclop style, remove the essay tone and the speculative wording, and added the header which break it up into certain areas. I am certain that you will be happy with it now...Polar115 (talk) 08:28, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Polar115, it doesn't explain when the theory was developed and publicized, or how it was received by the scientific community. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 15:16, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

It does explain it now after Special Conditions is added. It explains exactly how a tunnel is developed. And Has survived peer review. There's nothing promotional going on here as it is what it is - simply giving the phenomenon a name

There's quite a few extra articles on the tunnel due for publication this month which will be added. But we can't exclude a physical phenomenon once its been discovered and published - I just need to thicken up direct references over time. However does it not meet wiki's criteria as the subject is published?

Celalettin-Field Quantum Observation TunnelEdit

Hey Angus

Professor Liesl Folks, Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Buffalo (added links) was the first to receive it and as the global leader in quantum computing stated that it would destroy quantum computers.

I also added how he came up with the idea.

We ready to go? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Polar115 (talkcontribs)

It still needs to be structured better and have more outside sources. It still reads like promotional research activity by Celalettin-Field. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:16, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

It cant be - the phenomena is discovered and published by the physicist. Nothing to promoted other that the fact that the physicist discovered the phenomenon

Mel Heifetz article.Edit

Dear AngusWOOF,

Re: the Mel Heifetz article ( You declined the article, understandably, when there was only one sentence written.

Now, Heifetz's activism and life story have been detailed and cited with articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer,, and other sources.

Please kindly re-review the article. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by EditingandWriting (talkcontribs) 17:06, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

EditingandWriting, can you rewrite the article so it is more of a biography? It should go into his early life, then his career and advocacy, then a section on the awards and recognition. There should also be years as to when he did certain activities. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:24, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
EditingandWriting, also there doesn't need to be one sentence per paragraph. If there's not much to say about him, just combine it to a single paragraph or two for now. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:25, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Dear AngusWOOF, : AngusWOOF,

Thank you for all of your help and guidance. I have incorporated all of your feedback and I'm confident that the Mel Heifetz article ( deserves a re-review. Thank you very much.

AfC: N. AsokanEdit

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review Draft: N. Asokan.

Firstly, regarding the comment about the subject's first name: this is indeed known[1], but is a patronymic. I thought it would therefore be preferable to use the form "N. Asokan" for two reasons: 1) It is the form of the name he uses on all published academic papers[2]; and 2) he specifies on his personal website "In situations where you would normally use the firstname-lastname form (e.g., in semi-formal or formal written text), you can use "N. Asokan"". I have added the reference to his website just after his name to explain this, but please let me know if you have other suggestions for how to handle this.

Secondly, regarding notability: I believe criterion 3 of WP:NACADEMIC ("a fellow of a major scholarly society which reserves fellow status as a highly selective honor (e.g., Fellow of the IEEE)") applies in this case, since the subject is in fact a Fellow of the IEEE (citation 14) and also a fellow of the ACM (citation 12).

Ajpaverd (talk) 21:58, 6 January 2019 (UTC)


  1. ^ "N. Asokan - About Me".
  2. ^ "N. Asokan - Google Scholar".
Ajpaverd, that's fine; the article can still be titled N. Asokan as common name. It should mention his given name with that reference though. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:07, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Susan Stokes articleEdit

Dear AngusWOOF - Thank you for your review of the "Susan Stokes" article and your helpful comments on January 8, 2019. I have made the changes you recommended. When you have a moment, could you please take a look and see if you think the warning blocks at the top can be removed?

Draft of NL5 Circuit SimulatorEdit

Dear AngusWOOF, Thank you for reviewing draft of NL5 Circuit Simulator so quick. I am working on suggestions. However, I am a little bit confused: I looked at wiki pages of similar software packages (PLECS, PSIM), and in my opinion they are missing almost everything you are suggesting to me. Unfortunately I cannot review all their references, since the articles they refer to are not freely available. However, just looking at authors of some references, you can see that these are "materials produced by the creator of the subject being discussed", which is not allowed. Did I misunderstand something in your suggestions? Best regards, Alexei. A smi sim (talk) 22:39, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Alexei, the main thing is to provide secondary sources independent of the subject so that the subject meets notability. WP:GNG Some primary material (from program or website) is allowed, but it shouldn't be mostly that. PSIM seems to reference a lot of independent papers that show extensive use by researchers. References are not required to be freely available, but it helps if there's a reference that has maybe a freely-available abstract to read or sample that the reader knows the reference is going to go into depth on the subject matter. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 01:35, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, AngusWOOF, I understand your point, will do my best. Just to note, since your used PSIM as an example, out of 12 PSIM references 6 are not available online, 3 are Powersim company website, 1 has a simple link to PSIM [6] (I can provide tens of those), one is broken [8], and only one [9] is a real good one. Thank you, Alexei.A smi sim (talk) 02:12, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Submitting new revision. Still, I don't have comparison with other simulators, just because nobody (except myself) ever did it, and not likely anybody would do it in the nearest future. It's a "personal" tool, and users who are happy with it do not care much about sharing information. If it is still necessary, will think what else could be done. Thanks, Alexei A smi sim (talk) 06:15, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Dear AngusWoof,

I choose Ryoko Akama in response to the initiative ComposingWikipedia which put as a goal to increase the amount of female musicians on Wikipedia. I am a sincere admirer of her work. She won a lot of prices and she is very active on the contemporary music scene. ( Here you can find her lessons in Darmstadt: ) Thank you in advance for you help!

Hi Korin Rizzo, if you can comment on the talk page or the comments section of her draft on how she meets WP:MUSICBIO, that would help show the musician is notable. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:33, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Draft: BokashiEdit

Thank you for dealing with this draft. I only have one doubt about what's been done, and that is the dab (gardening). I heartily agree with avoiding (composting) but think (gardening) limits the interested audience. As you can see from the Uses section, it has wider applications, and I'm about to add a brief note on another one to do with sanitation. For now I'd be happier with (gardening and horticulture). I can edit everything else but I'm too inexperienced to know how to do this.

Thanks in advance, Malcolm Manofcarbon (talk) 09:44, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Malcolm, we can change to Bokashi (horticulture) if that covers the scope better. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 14:36, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for reviewing Draft:Solarization and suggested some things to do! FYI, on the talk page I proposed to split the already some 9 years ago and appart from a notice in 2017 that the confusion still exists, I haven't gotten any opposition to the split. I'll wait another 2 weeks before making the split. Again thanks for your time and suggestions. Photojack50 (talk|contribs) 16:14, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Photojack50, if you need to create Sabattier effect (no hyphen) and split off content, that would be fine. I think Solarization and Solarisation should go to the disambiguation page as there is no primary topic. Solarization (photography) can be created. Since Solarization (photography) and Sabattier effect are still related they can have some discussion of this in background or legacy sections of each article. Please make sure the split articles meet WP:GNG (significant coverage in multiple reliable secondary sources independent of the subject). AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:23, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again! I will used your suggestions and your advice. Photojack50 (talk|contribs) 16:32, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Photojack50, I've gone ahead and split the article. However, it should be clarified how they are different as it appears one (overexposure) naturally leads to the other (Sabattier effect, reversal of tones). I also removed the sentence about telling people not to mix the terms. It is not up to us to determine that, but to report that the terms are often interchangeable. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:46, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks !!! Solarization is caused by severe overexposure (normally in a camera). Pseudo-solarization or Sabattier effect is in the darkroom achieved (or inadvertently by mistake) by a mostly a short, non-imaging exposure during the development of the image . These effects are not related although there are cases in which the visual results are similar. Photojack50 (talk|contribs) 18:07, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Photojack50, also noting that I'm using the z spelling (American) over the s spelling (British), since the camera/photography research was done mainly in America. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:56, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Photojack50, can you find sources other than "", that one isn't reliable as it's just a random person/expert answering the question. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:10, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Greenhaven, Ga and Neighbors Against Greenhaven being removed from the pageEdit

  • You made a suggestion to add content for Neighbors Against Greenhaven to Greenhaven, GA, however, that content keeps being removed. New to Wiki and can you offer suggestions to the below. Please forgive and advise if going about this the wrong way
    • Unclear as to why the content from Neighbors of Greenhaven is being removed from Greenhaven, Ga. It has verifiable sources in that it has been mentioned in not only local media such as (the main metro paper), Decaturish (a local site covering Decatur, which is a city in the proposed Greenhaven) and in a national media outlet, CityLab, as well.
      • There is huge opposition to this which is why it has not been adopted into law and this all relates to the article. can you offer specific suggestions on why it keeps being removed and perhaps what can be removed to allow it? It doesn't appear that the content violates any rules.
        • the website address for Neighbors Against Greenhaven continues to be removed and yet Greenhaven's website is clearly a website about advocating for Greenhaven.

TravelinFool, please see the talk page for Greenhaven as to why it was continuing to be removed. It doesn't need an article section that is as big or bigger than the proposal. The other editors are amenable to a short paragraph section summarizing opposition. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:04, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

AngusWOOF per your suggestion content added to Greenhaven, ga. no new page set up. Content has been edited down and continues to be removed. Greenhaven website is for the pro Greenhaven side. Neighbors Against Greenhaven is the opposition and it's website is for the side against. Discuss on talk page before re-adding controversial material was reason for removal of all Neighbors Against Greenhaven content however nothing on Talk page as to what is considered controversial.

Please note that Wikipedia is not a battleground and it's not about who wins or loses in proposals. It should describe neutrally what is going on with the town proposal and give appropriate weight to the opposition. You should talk with the editors involved on that talk page on what is an appropriate section size for that. My point is that it doesn't need a completely separate draft article on the proposal.

RimaPOD2018, for the style, it shouldn't have bullet lists of mission statement verbiage. That makes it look like a copy of the website. As for sources, it needs ones that are not just from the immediate event (Oxford, All Events, own website).

Kalani Pe'aEdit

Aloha! New user here, I was instructed to move draft page into main space by user. I need more additional info from you on this. Also Kalani Pe'a first line edits - what does peacock stuff mean? Kalani has many links if that is something needed for this. I think your edit is ok the only thing is the draft page. You flagged the page for someone to move and merge pages but don't leave any additional info. Can you also send the instrutions or tag a admin that you have worked with prior? I appreciate your help! Allanbcool (talk) 01:33, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Allanbcool, the histmerge is for one of the admins to implement, so you don't need to worry about that. It's because the draft copy was worked on and then you copied it directly to the mainspace without letting it go through the AFC review, so it is merely trying to get to combine the edit histories of the draft and the current version into one page. As for peacock stuff, the article's lead was opening with "award-winning" verbiage so I was trying to remove that, to keep the tone neutral. See WP:PEACOCK AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:23, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes, if you check my talk page I was asking around then was instructed to do the copy and paste. Then I found out about the AFC move after. By then it was too late the page was already copied into the main space. What do I do now to erase the Draft:Kalani Pe'a page? The opening line is ok thanks for doing that edit. Allanbcool (talk) 07:41, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

The history merge has been performed HERE so all the edits are now on the main page. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:15, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Allanbcool, is there a way you can rewrite the career section? You can walk through his albums and singles and then whatever tours and major concerts he performed during those years. It doesn't need extensive discussion on what the Hawaii Bowl is. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:46, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

RugGear rejectionEdit

Hi there,

Thanks for the comments on RugGear draft page - I was wondering if you could be more specific on which bits have an advertising slant? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:36, 16 January 2019 (UTC), any of the corporate buzzword verbiage that promotes the company should be rewritten. For example: "The company has leveraged this previous industry experience to design and manufacture its own range of Rugged devices." What does this mean in layperson's terms? Also "has expanded its geographical footprint" Why not rewrite "has expanded operations". Also see WP:PEACOCK, WP:SOLUTION, and WP:NPOV. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 20:43, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Declined article about Ariadne Getty FoundationEdit

Hello Angus. I am writing concerning the recently submitted and declined article about the Ariadne Getty Foundation. I'm wondering if you can further illuminate why the article "does not have sufficient content to require an article of its own" and/or doesn't meet Wikipedia's notability standards. The article, while concise, is not extraordinarily short and it describes the major milestones of its subject. It includes citations to a number of major independent media organizations, including the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Times As for notability, the foundation has been in continual operation for 14 years and most recently awarded a $15 million grant to a prominent non-profit civil rights organization. So my question is, why is this subject not notable and what needs to be done to make the article worthy of a place on Wikipedia? Thank you.

List of films with high frame ratesEdit

Hi AngusWOOF. Your rejection of my submission Draft:List of films with high frame rates includes this statement: "This submission is not adequately supported by reliable sources." My impression of your review is that you saw an article created by an IP editor, with a link to a YouTube video and to an article at Forbes, and that this made you think the article is not properly sourced. I suggest you give the article another look. You will see not only references to Variety, TechRadar, The Hollywood Reporter (4x), Deadline Hollywood (2x), and the National Film Board of Canada; you will also see that the YouTube video, used for the claim in the lead, is a TWiT Netcast Network interview with TV historian Mark Schubin. (An informational video, by the way. Check it out.) The § Films section even includes this comment: "<!-- Please ONLY include entries with reliable sources (in the Ref. column). -->" That is how important inline citations are to me; I take pride in always using them. As for notability, see the discussion here. -- (talk) 21:27, 16 January 2019 (UTC), are any of those citations showing that a list is being made of all HFR fillms? Those only cite that a particular film is verified to be HFR and will justify that it can be on the list, but what I'm looking for is whether lists of HFR films are being put together by news articles or film websites that aren't IMDb user-generated. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:14, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
It appears that your reasoning is: notability not established -> information not available -> information cannot be verified. I believe you're mistaken, and you should have used just "nn" (reason2) and not "v". The latter creates a block

This submission is not adequately supported by reliable sources. Reliable sources are required so that information can be verified. If you need help with referencing, please see Referencing for beginners and Citing sources.

which is about verifying information. There's a reason it points to WP:REFB and WP:CS. This does not apply to my submission. With "nn" it already requests "additional references" to establish "significant coverage" and notability. -- (talk) 22:52, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

About the decline of the page for Vader Episode I: Shards of the PastEdit

What should I remove or add from this article? (I’m new to making Wikipedia articles by the way, so that’s probably why I failed enough for the page to get declined.)

Stinkyjaden, you need some film reviews and coverage from major news sources independent of the production. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:43, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
OK! Thanks for telling me. I’ll get right on that!
- Stinkyjaden (talk), 16 January 2019 (UTC)Stinkyjaden
Stinkyjaden, has the film been entered into film festivals? Has it won any major awards? That it is released on YouTube isn't anything special as there are millions of people who post to YouTube. Please read WP:NFILM for more criteria that would show the film is notable. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:50, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
It didn’t get to any film festivals I believe, or win any awards (not yet anyways). It has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from internet media outlets though (Gizmodo, GeekTyrant, Cinema Blend, etc.). Is that enough for Vader Ep. I to warrant it’s own page?
- Stinkyjaden (talk), 16 January 2019 (UTC)Stinkyjaden

Only one of those sources is notable. ―Susmuffin Talk 23:11, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
I wouldn’t call them Roger Ebert or Gene Shalit. I do have something else to add. Star Wars Theory, the guy who created the short, says he’s been invited to various conventions and comic-cons (which I’m assuming involves Vader Episode I). YouTube Link to the video. He says it near the end at time stamp 1:57. I don’t think that’ll be good enough though, so I’ll try to keep digging up more things.

Hi Silvervox325, regarding the paid subscription news articles, you can add subscription=y in the citation to indicate that the article is behind a paywall. Per WP:PAYWALL, those are still acceptable as references. If part of the paid material such as the title of the article or an opening summary/paragraph is accessible, you can add the link to it and that would help tell the editor whether it's going to have significant coverage of the company.

Ariadne Getty Foundation articleEdit

Hello Angus. I am writing respectfully (again) concerning the recently submitted and declined article about the Ariadne Getty Foundation.

The article, while concise, is not extraordinarily short and it describes the major milestones of its subject. It includes citations to a number of major independent media organizations, including the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Times As for notability, the foundation has been in continual operation for 14 years and most recently awarded a $15 million grant to a prominent non-profit civil rights organization. So my question is, why is this subject not notable and what needs to be done to make the article worthy of a place on Wikipedia? Thank you.Lena Coleman (talk) 21:47, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Please highlight which articles meet WP:GNG and WP:ORGCRIT. A lot of the articles mention Getty herself and the foundation in passing. You can also resubmit the article, maybe another editor will see things differently. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:57, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Lena Coleman, it's not that it's not notable. It's more whether it has notability independent from Getty herself. As it stands, it would be better as a section within Getty's article to explain the foundation. See Arthur Ashe where his Foundation is part of the main article. If she's highly active in the Foundation, then she's not really independent of it. If it's running itself and has other decisions independent of Getty's input, it's more likely to be separate. The news articles provided so far have her heavily involved. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:40, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Answer to comments: S-7000.A Real Property Tax Law in New York StateEdit

Hi AngusWOOF,

> Comment: Is this supported to cover S7000 or S7000A or both? AngusWOOF (bark • sniff) 20:50, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

There is only S.7000-A. I'm not sure what you are referring to in your question. That is the name that given to the set of property tax laws that affect the majority of people in New York State

> Comment: This is missing the general context of why Wikipedia should care about a specific state's property tax law. Compare to Prop 13 and how that has had impact that has been analyzed nationally. AngusWOOF (bark • sniff) 20:48, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

I will add more about the connection to Proposition 13. There is a national connection which is shown in articles such as

Can you help me understand how to improve this article? This article is only the facts and it shows exactly why each individual property is taxed the way it is. This is a big question here because there is wild variation between like properties. This is probably true in other locations/states/nations. This is one of the reasons that it is important for wikipedia. It would help people to understand the tax law with real history and reasons all in one place.

Also I am reading the article about Proposition 13 see

It seems to have a lot of guessing, is that what I should add to this article to make it more notable/useful. I was trying to stick to only the facts.

For example see the quotes text below from the background section:

There are several accounts of the origins of Proposition 13. The evidence for or against these accounts varies.
One explanation is that older Californians with fixed incomes had increasing difficulty paying property taxes, which were rising as a result of California's population growth, increasing housing demand, and inflation. Due to severe inflation during the 1970s, reassessments of residential property increased property taxes so much, that some retired people could no longer afford to remain in homes they had purchased long before. An academic study found support for this explanation, reporting that older voters, homeowners, and voters expecting a tax increase were more likely to vote for Proposition 13.[9]
Another popular explanation is Proposition 13 drew its impetus from the 1971 and 1976 California Supreme Court rulings in Serrano v. Priest, which somewhat equalized California school funding by redistributing local property taxes from wealthy to poor school districts. According to this explanation, property owners in affluent districts perceived that the taxes they paid were no longer benefiting their local schools, and chose to cap their taxes.
A basic problem with this explanation is that the Serrano decision and school finance equalization were actually quite popular among California voters.[9] It is true that Californians who voted for Proposition 13 were less likely than other voters to support school finance, but Proposition 13 supporters were not more likely to oppose the Serrano decision, and on average they were typically supportive of both the Serrano decision and of school finance equalization.[9]
Another explanation that has been offered is that spending by California's government had increased dramatically during the years prior to 1978, and taxpayers sought to limit further growth. The evidence supporting this explanation is limited, as there have been no studies relating Californians' views on the size and role of government to their views on Proposition 13. However, it is true that California's government had grown. Between 1973 and 1977, California state and local government expenditures per $1000 of personal income were 8.2 percent higher than the national norm. From 1949 to 1979, public sector employment in California outstripped employment growth in the private sector. By 1978, 14.7 percent of California's civilian work force were state and local government employees, almost double the proportion of the early 1950s.[10]
In addition, during the early 1960s, there were several scandals in California involving county assessors.[10][11] These assessors were found rewarding friends and allies with artificially low assessments, with tax bills to match. These scandals led to the passage of AB 80 in 1966, which imposed standards to hold assessments to market value.[12] The return to market value in the wake of AB 80 could easily represent a mid-double-digit percentage increase in assessment for many homeowners. As a result, a large number of California homeowners experienced an immediate and drastic rise in valuation, simultaneous with rising tax rates on that assessed value, only to be told that the taxed monies would be redistributed to distant communities. The ensuing anger started to form into a backlash against property taxes which coalesced around Howard Jarvis, a former newspaperman and appliance manufacturer, turned taxpayer activist in retirement.

Ryozzo (talk) 21:28, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Ryozzo, the point is whether a specific New York State Property Tax Law is that Wikipedia-notable. There are thousands of laws, but which have impact that someone in an encyclopedia would care about? It's not supposed to be a site map of New York State Laws. I brought up Prop 13 because that one has a lot of national attention and coverage. Does S7000A have something similar? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:49, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you AngusWOOF, but S.7000-A is part of that same movement during the period of high inflation of the 1970's. There are many New York Times articles about S.7000-A and many are cited in the article. It also was a movement that was organized by civic organizations here in Queens and Brooklyn. Are the New York Times articles not enough? Should I merge this into a larger topic? Should I simply abandon it? Let me know, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for your reply.

Ryozzo (talk) 21:58, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Ryozzo, you don't need a huge background section if it isn't backed up by news articles. It can always be expanded upon later if there is useful background information. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:23, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Current History: S-7000.A Real Property Tax Law in New York StateEdit

Hi AngusWOOF,

In addition, there are current history references that document the New York City Council members attempting the sue New York City.

Is this more useful information? Should I add more like this?


A property tax lawsuit was filed in April 25, 2017 against New York City and New York State by Tax Equity Now New York, a group that includes Jonathan Lippman, the law firm of Latham and Watkins representing homeowners, renters, real estate developers, the N.A.A.C.P., the Citizens Budget Commission and others[20].[21]
On Sept. 29, 2017 a group of New York City council members filed an amicus curiae brief in support of the Tax Equity Now New York lawsuit and the New York City Mayor argued that the tax case be dismissed — and that the members’ brief should not even be considered by the court.[22] On February 7, 2018 A Manhattan state Supreme Court justice ruled that five Council members, including two from Queens, cannot use a private attorney to file an amicus curiae brief backing the Tax Equity Now New York lawsuit challenging the city’s property tax system. Justice Gerald Lebovits said in a four-page decision that the members must use the city’s corporation counsel, who has already said he will not represent them, when acting in their official capacity.[23]

Ryozzo (talk) 21:50, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Ryozzo the tables of tax rates are excessive detail. You need to summarize the law's components. What are the major aspects of it? You don't need to rewrite the entire law text. There should be a Background and Proposal sections on how it was put together. What Senate or House bill was proposed, and by whom and when? When was the A version passed? What was the property tax law before. Then there should be a Reception section on how it was rolled out, and the reaction by the public. Then a section for amendments and a Legacy for pop culture references and other stuff. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:00, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
See also Prop 8 and the major sections involved there. Those are mainly to give you an idea how to structure the law part and the reactions as those are highly notable and controversial propositions/laws. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:02, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

King Monada MoveEdit

Dear AngusWoof, i am letting you know that i am moving the page Steven Khutso Kgatla into main space. An editor created it but did a terrible job. I then improved it and after doing so, I found there was two drafts of it already which I then nominated for deletion. User:RHaworth then directed my mainspace created version back to draft because of the other versions though there was no edit summary in his move. Also I see in your decline, you stated that there is another draft version as a reasons for the decline. The subject is a highly notable South African singer. I will thus clean it up and move it as well as nominate the other draft for deletion as it looks like some potent badly done article to me. Thank you Loved150 (talk) 05:34, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Quick question regarding sourcesEdit

Hello. I have a quick question with regards to the biographies of any actor/actress in general. On the website, they have information regarding the birth, marriage and death records. Newspaper archives also have information regarding wedding announcements, etc. With respect to the WP:BLP policy, do the records themselves or newspaper archives count as reliable sources? Thanks, Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 19:23, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

I would cite the actual newspapers themselves and use it as a primary source concerning announcements unless it's secondary coverage of the event. is not reliable as it is user-generated: WP:RSP AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:26, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
I see. Since isn't a reliable source, would the index records themselves (i.e. Texas, Birth Index; they're published by the Department of Health Services) count as primary sources for birthdates? Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 21:40, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
They're kind of in the WP:DOB privacy realm. See again the RSP article about the detail. If the person tweets "check out my birth certificate at" and gives a link, then it's probably not privacy. I know the California Birth Index is a no-go. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:42, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

My movie is a real movie. I made it, it is a genuine 2-hour movie with a trailer and credits. I am not putting it on Wikipedia for personal gain- only to make Wikipedia more complete.

My website and the movie itself are the most reliable sources I can provide. You have an article for NOTDOT on here. It was made by a relative nobody, James Riffel, on a low budget and it consists of nothing more than Night Of The Living Dead with a riff track. It was released to only 500 stores. I bet nobody knows it exists. Why can't my movie be on here? It is a movie. Again, here it is. I suggest you watch it all the way through. Fraction7 (talk) 22:08, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Draft:Carl Jack Miller - WikipediaEdit

Hi AngusWOOF, thanks for your note.

I would like to respond to your comment on how Carl Miller meets the notability criteria for creative professionals.

He coined ‘social media intelligence’ or SOCMINT , which is now in wide use by a large number of independent organisations and individuals.

His work has been widely cited by his peers within a significant number of independent and reliable secondary sources. His body of authored or co-authored work has received 652 citations within peer-reviewed journals, and is cited by the House of Lords Select Committee on Political Polling and Digital Media , the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee,, The House of Lords Select Committee on European Union , and by Hansard .

He has also been cited in

His published work has received significant coverage in independent and reliable secondary sources over a number of years. This includes interviews in Economist , Impact Magazine , reviews by The Sunday Times , New Scientist , The Register , and The Catholic Herald , and has been published by TheTimes Literary Supplement , The Sunday Times , and The Irish Examiner

It will be great to know if the above reassures you of Carl's credentials, and whether adding the references above to my draft will be sufficient.

Thanks Myafong (talk) 11:23, 21 January 2019 (UTC)Amanda

Myafong, of the ones here, which describe Miller's career in detail? Ones that are not mainly Q&A interviews. There's another article that focuses on the Centre over at Demos (UK think tank) so it appears a lot of the articles you listed are pointing to his work as a representative of that organization. Also according to the Centre, he was a co-founder of that group with two others. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:48, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

I can answer that for you. There's a fundamental policy that everyone must follow with regards to biographies: WP:BLP. You may want to look into that. Thanks, Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 01:28, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

About Draft:Union of Journalists of the Philippines - University of the Philippines (UJP-UP)Edit

Hi AngusWoof,

Thank you for your message. I would just like to know if there is a way that I can create a page for Union of Journalists of the Philippines - University of the Philippines (UJP-UP). As you can see, I also wrote the article that you can see in this link:

I wanted to create a wiki page for the said organization and include the logo in the page. Is there a way that I can do that?

Thanks for the help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by GTacadena (talkcontribs) 19:00, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

GTacadena, that depends on whether the school organization is notable. Please see WP:ORGCRIT. Usually university students organizations are not. If Union of Journalists of the Philippines is organized across multiple schools, that might be reconsidered. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:04, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Responding to concerns about article creation for No Good (Musician)

Hello AngusWOOF! I wanted to address your concerns before resubmitting the article so that there arent any issues and I can make any fixes necessary in one go rather than iterating on it.

You say that the submission appears to read more like an advertisement but I based this article on the pages of many other musicians that are on wikipedia currently. Please see for instance or . I think you will find that it reads the same and is not an advertisement at all for the musician.

In addition most of the material covered in the submissions reference show complete coverage of what is mentioned in the article as the text in the article is almost directly quoted from the references. I can change the majority of the text used to direct quotes if this helps you.

You state that there is a Potential COI but I do not personally know this musician at all so i'm hoping that that resolves that conflict for you. I have no employer, client, affiliation with respect to this contribution.

I'm unclear of how else to resolve the conflict so if submitting to you on your talk page is not the correct way to do so I apologize but things have changed a lot since the last article I wrote and this was the closes thing I could find aside of making changes to the article and resubmitting.

Theyrenogood (talk) 20:57, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for responding on the draft feedback. I will remove the COI tag; it was closely resembling the actual artist username. As for the article itself, it reads like it was from promotional material about the artist's style and approach on albums and singles. That verbiage should either be quoted and referenced or changed so it is more neutral. It also needs more sources that aren't from the website itself. Are there news articles or magazine reviews that cover the artist? Those should be in there to meet WP:MUSICBIO. Has he charted or won any major awards? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:07, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi again AngusWOOF! I definitly want to address your concerns so I may need some help here. I can throw out some suggested verbiage changes and maybe you can tell me if they are better or worse? I'm not sure if you got the chance to view the articles I liked about other musicians but I tried to follow the same format as in specific. I really don't feel like I'm being any less neutral when describing this musician then whoever wrote this article for her.

No Good is a smaller musician that I heard of through other twitch streamers so I don't see that he has won any awards when I search for him. I definitely did take the explanations of how he works on his music from his interviews and info sections of his websites and the websites of the labels that have released his songs so I can change these to quotes if that helps? perhaps something more like follows?

Does something more like what is below address your concerns? Am I on the right path here?Edit

No Good (born 1986) is an American musician, music producer, vocalist, DJ, guitarist, mixing engineer, mastering engineer, communications engineer, signal processing engineer, and avid cat owner.[1]. He started professionally releasing music in 2018 and created social media accounts on twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, and twitch to stay in touch with his fans and share insight into his production work. His music has been described as "juxtapositions that take different key elements from various genres and place them together in a cohesive way. Rather than being radical and drawing your attention, they are meant to be subtle and blend in".[2]

Early life and education

Born and raised in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii he started playing the piano, guitar and constantly writing new songs starting at a young age. As the son of a first chair violinist / classical pianist who’s brothers were Broadway musical singer/actors he has always been involved in music. Over time he has moved from performing and writing traditional band based music to electronica. He has been in music performance scene for over 17 years.[3] He has been part of various jazz bands, a few punk rock bands, had an EDM radio show in Idaho called Harmonic Drive, and was the resident DJ in CJ’s, a large nightclub in Idaho. He did two years of school in music at the University of Hawaii at Hilo before moving to Idaho to get his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering. He then moved to Phoenix Arizona to get his masters and PhD in Electrical Engineering.[1]

Career His debut release under the moncier "No Good" was a song called "H3LP" with Uninvented Records.[2] From the press release:
" Fresh off his one third life crisis, armed with his new approach to his compositions and life, he is excited to kick off his SAD (Song A Day) series with this single. The SAD series came about based on his desire to simplify the song making process, to creatively confine his productions and ideas so that the results were more focused, and to increase his productivity by making a song a day.


His SAD songs are subtle juxtapositions that take different key elements from various genres and place them together in a cohesive way. Rather than being radical and drawing your attention, they are meant to be subtle and blend in. Taking H3LP for example, this track was meant to give the feeling of his island roots and reggae to a doo-wop style pop song with future synths. It has been described by critics and record labels as unique and inspiring and as credible 8-bit future bass. Early access listeners called it an achievement and were intrigued to know more about the artist who could conceive of and perform an idea such as this. This single came about based on his desire to simplify the song making process, to creatively confine his productions and ideas so that the results were more focused, and to increase his productivity by making a song a day. H3LP has subtle juxtapositions that take different key elements from various genres and place them together in a cohesive way. Rather than being radical and drawing your attention, they are meant to be subtle and blend in. H3LP was meant to give the feeling of his island roots and reggae to a doo-wop style pop song with future synths. "

His second release was a collaboration with KVIII and was released by Eyes On You Records.[4] This was a deep house song that he did with a fellow member of a music producers discord group that No Good co runs.

His third release was a self-released Contemporary Doo-Wop song done using Horus_Music as a distributor.[5] As described in the information section on soundcloud:

"Darling Angel started out as an throwback doo wop song with lo-fi instruments and mastering to match the music of the 40's. After further thought though, based on the success of the juxtaposition achieved in some of his other works, No Good decided to move the song into a modern format and call it "Contemporary Doo-Wop".

The song is set to be bass heavy on purpose to give the feeling of a mix of reggae and 808's and heartbreak. On top of that there is a very punchy kick to help move the song a long and add some edge to the rhythm. The synthesizers are meant to be very sweet and candy like and take the place of the piano and guitar heard in traditional doo wop era songs that are not purely acapalla. The harmonies of the group are added through a vocoder to keep the song more modern sounding and the sound effects are meant to reminisce of an old soda shoppe.

The track, Darling Angel, is named after the female half of the love story that it tells about a young couple in college."

The quotes need context, like "In an interview with (magazine) concerning the album's music style, he said (quote)" or "(critic's name) of (notable magazine) said '(quote from the review) .. (critic 2) of (magazine 2) said (quote 2). AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:26, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
Also need secondary sources that are not just from that studio. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 22:32, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
Ok, i can definitely add context to the quotes like you say to. I really appreciate that feedback and help. I'll try and find more sources as well but I would say that quotes and references on other pages I find do not have multiple references for a single piece of information (like multiple references for 1 quote). In addition I quote from his soundcloud so that add a second textual reference to the article. I do not know if I can find more at this point until he does more or is featured more but I have seen articles that do not have very many references in the past so this shouldn't be an issue it seems. Are you saying I should just cut down on the amount of text in there until I can find more references and keep the amount of material from a single reference down? It seems like that really limits the page to be something different than what it should be. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theyrenogood (talkcontribs) 00:42, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
The main thing is to have secondary source references that are not connected to the subject, as that will enable the artist to pass notability. I wouldn't worry about beefing up the text with quotes until after it's become a notable article. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:40, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Article rejectedEdit

Dear AngusWOOF, Thank you for your recent review of my article - 'ChartCo'. Could you please just clarify what you mean by the article 'suffering from chemistry'? This would be really helpful so I can work on the copy and avoid this happening again in the future. Many thanks again, LHamstig — Preceding unsigned comment added by LHamstig (talkcontribs) 08:54, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Draft page for 12 Characters in Search of an ApocalypseEdit

Greetings Angus - thank you for your helpful comments and for continuing to track the progress of the page as I flesh it out. One comment you made was about the play's characters being in normal typeface, not bold, not italic. Looking at A Doll's House I see they, too, use bold. I think it really helps visually (but I did remove the unnecessary italics from my draft, thank you). I will change the DM cover to a photo from one of the performances, thanks for the advice. And I will ensure that any quotes I use are attributed. Thanks again!Jason.e.stewart (talk) 11:28, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Jason.e.stewart, if the character names are in bullet list followed by dashes then that will be good enough to figure out what the character name is. You can also put in the premise that each character is named after a common expression such as "I did the math". See MOS:BOLD, which also covers how to do italics. Also I think the touring list should be condensed into a paragraph or so highlighting like "27 cities across the United States and Canada, including (some super notable venue)". If you have more news articles critiquing the essay and the performances, please add those in a Reception section in order to help it meet notability. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:11, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
Jason.e.stewart, I'd also remove the quotes that are from "direct communication with Boyd" as that is original research WP:NOR. Whatever Boyd wants to say about his work should be documented with an interview or published on his blog / twitter, or better yet, covered by external news articles.

Sppedy removal of proposed article on ARH Dear Wikipedia editor Angus Woof,

with all due respect, I wish to ask for guidance with reference to your decision on the speedy removal of my first Wikipedia article, about a private corporation named ARH. Your judgement was that it qualified as "blatant advertising".

I took the liberty to copy the introductory passage of the proposed article. In my judgement, it contains facts rather than company promotion -- with the exception of the figures that I highlighted, which I could simply omit.

Many corporations -- including giants like, as well as relatively small enterprises like or -- have an article on Wikipedia, informing the general public that they exist and have a clearly defined profile.

I was wondering if my proposed article on AHR could qualify as appropriate for Wikipedia -- with major changes and omissions.

Kind regards, Gojko.F.Mitic (talk) 16:24, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Gojko.F.Mitic, any facts that you post should be supported by news sources. Also it shouldn't be structured like it is bragging about its products. "Over 12,000 satisfied partners...on every continent" has advertising bias and needs to be rewritten from outside-of-company perspective. It also shouldn't have all that verbiage about solutions, unless you're talking about mixing chemicals. See WP:SOLUTION That you're keeping the trademark symbol around makes it appear that you're trying to sell the product and company instead of presenting it neutrally. Having bullet lists makes it look like a brochure or a copy of their website. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:41, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
