Reliable sourcesEdit

Hi, you declined Draft:Zenkit yesterday with the reason that the article of Forbes is not reliable because of its author. Is there another source that might not be reliable in this Draft? I can insert other articles but maybe they will be in German. I found out that non-English sources are allowed in combination with the translation but I don't know how to set this up. Is there a template for this sort? Thanks for advice. --Jessica Lu. (talk) 10:00, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Jessica Lu., Many of the references can be used, but they do not show notability. To show notability, the references must be in-depth when talking about the subject. They must also be independent of the subject. For instance, the same would apply to LifeHacker as it is user generated content, not independently written by the publication. You can review WP:ORGCRIT where there is a chart that will guide you through your search for reliable sources that show notability. As far as non-English sources, they are allowed as long as they meet the same criteria. The problem you may face is that many reviewers may only known English so they would not be able to review for notability based on those sources. In a situation like that, it would be good to go to the specific project with that language (WikiProject Germany, etc.) and ask on the talk page if they know a specific source to show notability. This will help you prior to implementing the reference in the draft. --CNMall41 (talk) 19:13, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
CNMall41 thank you for your recommendation. I will definitely have a look at it but the Draft is not about Zenkit as an organization. It's about the tool/software itself. Aren't there different notability guidelines? --Jessica Lu. (talk) 10:04, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Jessica Lu., just a quick note. There is no need to ping someone on their own talk page and they will receive a notification from Wikipedia already. It'll save you some time while typing. As far as the draft, what specific guidelines are you basing your draft on?--CNMall41 (talk) 21:22, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, Kirbanzo, but I am unsure of why you notified me instead of the user who the sandbox belongs to. --CNMall41 (talk) 02:18, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

@CNMall41: Pretty sure it was just Twinkle screwing up. Kirbanzo (talk) 16:26, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Kirbanzo, Ahhh, Twinkle. That explains it all. Thanks! --CNMall41 (talk) 05:02, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
