Polling graphEdit

Hi Ar558,

I've had to remove your graph from Opinion polling in the United Kingdom general election, 2010, as there were a number of problems with it. It's a little arbitrary: you online confine yourself to this year, and you don't make it clear what your sources are. I assume that you're just averaging all the polls, but you can't do this, because it favours companies (such as YouGov) which poll more often. I suppose you could do this if every company's methodology was the same, but it's not, and they're are widely different results out there at the moment. Secondly, such a graph would be far better suited to a rolling average, rather than being separated into discrete weeks.

Also, please don't use a lossy format as JPEG for such graphics. It looks fine when maximized, but all the artefacts show up when it is resized for the page. It's far better to use SVG, or, if you must, PNG.

Serena's Protected rankingEdit

Sources that show Serena used a protected ranking to enter Wimbledon:

https://www.tennisworldusa.org/tennis/news/Serena_Williams/55312/wimbledon-entry-list-serena-williams-uses-protected-ranking/

"All the top 105 ranked players are committed to play Wimbledon from 2 to 15 July 2018. Three players used the protected ranking to directly join the main draw entry list: Serena Williams, Laura Siegemund and Saisai Zheng."

https://metro.co.uk/2018/06/27/serena-williams-handed-wimbledon-seeding-7663460/

"The American is ranked at 183 in the world after returning to tennis after leaving the sport to give birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia and is competing in the tournament using her protected ranking."

https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/tennis/wimbledon/wimbledon-2018-seedings-serea-williams-seeded-no-25-return-childbirth-daughter-top-seed-a8418891.html

"All tournaments on the Women’s Tennis Association tour automatically follow the world rankings with their seedings. While players returning from lengthy absences can use “protected” rankings to enter tournaments – Williams is actually ranked joint No 1 alongside Simona Halep in Wimbledon’s official entry list – they are not used for seeding purposes."

"After all, both had entered the Wimbledon singles draw on a protected ranking after a long break away from their respective tours. Williams was off for 13 months to have a child and, having returned in March without a ranking, is now No. 183. Murray, who missed 11 months with a hip injury that required surgery, is now ranked No. 156."

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/6187658/serena-williams-wimbledon-seeding-baby-pregnancy-penalty/

"Since returning to tennis earlier this year after giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia last September, Williams has enjoyed a protected ranking of No 1 that guarantees her entry into tournaments."

Citations neededEdit

Hi Ar558a,

After reverting an un-sourced addition to Lewis Hamilton, I noticed upon looking at your contributions history that you appear to have made a large number of edits to articles in which you have added content without sources or citations. All content on wikipedia must include sufficient citations.

  Please do not add or change content, as you did at Lewis Hamilton, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thanks. Formulaonewiki (talk) 22:37, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Baptiste (TV Series) moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Baptiste (TV Series), does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.
