Tocher and Tocher taxidermistsEdit


My submission was declined due to unreliable sources -I wonder if you could assist me I have cited Dr Pat Morris OBE the taxidermy expert who I have met in person supplied me with the Tocher and Tocher catalogues and price lists and he is in receipt of the originals I could ask him to email you confirmation of this.

Also Joshua Mathew the writer of The Last White Hunter interviewed Donald Anderson for his book in person and was told the information about Tocher and Tocher.

If a letter or email from both Pat Morris or Joshua Mathew would help please let me know , alternatively please could could expand on what you refer to a reliable sources as I don’t think there any previous articles about Tocher and Tocher on Wikipedia. I know of 2 daughters of Herbert Tocher who are still alive and they could verify that Tocher and Tocher Taxidermy did exist and there are also many auction websites that had items for sale which I could send you links to . Other than that I’m not sure how to provide reliable sources therefore please could you advise me further.

Here is another mention of Tocher and Tocher

Another link which mentions Tocher Taxidermy

Many thanks

Shane Royle, it is not about what you can prove with Wikipedia. It comes down to what reliable sources say about the subject. A WP:RS would be from a book, news media, etc. that talks about the subject in-depth. From what I see, there are only brief mentions showing the existence. Also, sources such as GeoCities and UrbanGeoFiction are not considered reliable so they cannot be used. Finally, a letter from someone would be considered WP:OR which is also not acceptable for Wikipedia. I would recommend reading through WP:FIRST and WP:RS to help you determine what is/isn't reliable. If that doesn't help, you can always solicit other opinions from editors at the Teahouse (see the link on your talk page). Good luck. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:00, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Skycoin pageEdit

Hi CNMall41. Thanks for commenting on the Skycoin page.

On the two occasions that the page was rejected for reading like an advertisement, the rejection notice said the page should be written from a neutral point of view, and should refer to a range of independent, reliable, published sources, not just to materials produced by the creator of the subject".

There was no other explanation given regarding how the article reads like an advertisement.

Since I have already addressed those stated issues (i.e. neutral point of view and independent sources), could you please be more specific about why you believe the article still reads like an advertisement?

I think it reads similarly to the other 40 cryptocurrency pages already on Wikipedia - refer to list here

I reviewed the ARTSPAM page and can't see where the Skycoin page breaches the guidelines.

Could you identify the specific guidelines that have been breached, with reference to specific sections of the Skycoin page that breach those guidelines?


Peak Debt (talk) 02:26, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Peak Debt, I can read your frustration above, but I don't make the rules here on Wikipedia. You're pointing out things such as [{WP:OTHERSTUFF]] while you haven't even begun to address some of the concerns addressed such as what is/isn't a reliable source. I just took the time to go through the draft again and will get right to the heart of it.......the topic simply doesn't meet notability guidelines in my opinion. That means even if you were to create a page void of advertorial tone, the topic still would not be suitable for Wikipedia. You are more than welcome to get a second opinion but that's my stance at the moment. This is what I would consider a case of WP:TOOSOON. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:04, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

(AfC) Requesting review for Draft:Moideen_Koya_K._K.Edit

I have made all changes suggested by reviewers including you. I believe the draft is in pretty acceptable state as of now. Please review the draft and move it to the Articles section. Thank you

Ubhasrk (talk) 13:00, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Ubhasrk, thanks for making the changes. I see it has been resubmitted and someone will review it in the normal course of reviewing AfC submissions. --CNMall41 (talk) 20:30, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
CNMall41, Thank you! But an you check once and let me know if any more changes are necessary so that when a reviewer comes by, the page doesn't get declined again. Thank you. Ubhasrk (talk) 22:14, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Ubhasrk, just a heads up, there is no need to ping a user on their own talk page as they will see it in their notifications already. I took a quick look at the content and I do see some issues such as the draft reading like a resume. Why do you use so many bullet points instead of WP:PROSE? Things such as this make a draft look more promotional than like a Wikipedia page. As far as the content itself, I will leave it to someone else with more knowledge of the topic to take a look. --CNMall41 (talk) 23:32, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Please excuse my ignorance. I am new to Wikipedia editing. I'll try to make the page look more like a Wikipedia page than a list. I am hoping that there aren't any other formatting or layout errors in the draft that I am not aware of. Thank you Ubhasrk (talk) 10:35, 27 August 2018 (UTC)


Hi there, You reviewed my entry previously and declined for various reasons. I hope I have addressed these now. Can you please take another look? Dani.Horton (talk) 14:00, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Dani.Horton, I left a comment on the draft page. --CNMall41 (talk) 20:31, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Jasonjot Singh KaliraiEdit

Hi CNMall41,

Thanks for the quick feedback on the page. I was sent the framework for a basic page from a colleague and asked to update it as he was surprised that I wasn't already on wikipedia. I tried to add lots of references and fill in some blanks, but the basic information is all public knowledge (and verifiable) There are lots of astronomers with wikipedia pages.
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.
Should I wait for a formal decision from the administrators after checking what is written, or should I ask my colleague to consider creating the page himself if he wants to?

Many thanks! Jasonkalirai (talk) 00:09, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Jasonkaliarai, thanks for the comment. You will need to disclose your conflict of interest in according with WP:DISCLOSE. That will notify reviewers of your conflict of interest so they can look closely at the content when they review. As long as you are transparent about your conflict of interest, it is fine to leave the draft for review by others. --CNMall41 (talk) 00:24, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi CNMall41...thanks for this very helpful feedback, and sorry that I did not initially do this. I've now added the COI to my talk page, as you suggested.

Orphaned non-free image File:Solo Cup Company logo.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:Solo Cup Company logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:33, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018Edit

Hello CNMall41, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Request on 10:26:42, 20 September 2018 for assistance on AfC submission by SavkapilEdit

This company has not been featured in any news websites. Rather it has been featured only in press release sites. There is not much references to the info than the website content. So what should be my next steps?

Savkapil (talk) 10:26, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Savkapil. In order to create a Wikipedia page, the topic must meet the golden rule which requires significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the topic. Since press releases are not considered independent, the topic would not qualify for inclusion in Wikipedia. The next steps would be to wait until the main stream media takes note of the company and writes about it. Once that happens and coverage is established that meets Wikipedia guidelines, feel free to come back and resubmit the draft. --CNMall41 (talk) 15:57, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Mophie for deletionEdit

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Mophie is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mophie (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. HighKing++ 17:17, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
