I try to answer all questions, but I also have a busy real-life - If you have a general question it may be quicker to ask at the Wikipedia:Teahouse

Alfa Theatre, Tel AvivEdit

I am trying to understand what kind of extra "sources" you required as to move my article on Alfa Theatre to draftspace. The theatre exists and operate for years, has reviews and is recognized by the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sport and the Municipality of Tel Aviv. Do you kindly care to tell me what "reliable sources" do you need to approve the article? Do you need a verification statement from the official Board of the Theatre? The Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sport or the Municipality of Tel Aviv, both of which recognize and support the Alfa Theatre? The police? If you have any specific questions regarding the article, I will be more than happy to provide answers; but I have contributed many entries to Wikipedia in the past, and I must admit I never seen such a general, unexplained requirement, so I will be grateful if you care to enlighten me. Sincerely, Dr Sarah Fine, New York and Tel Aviv. Sfine8 (talk) 13:42, 4 July 2020 (UTC)sfine8

And by the way, there is a published article on Alfa Theatre on the Hebrew Wikipedia, as there is a mention of Alfa theatre on the long existing entry on the English Wikipedia on the Academy of Performing Arts, Tel Aviv. Aren't those qualified as "reliable sources? 13:42, 4 July 2020 (UTC)sfine8

  • Hi Sfine8 all new articles on Wikipedia have to show they are notable (See WP:N) which in most cases requires significant coverage in multiple independent (WP:INDY) reliable sources (WP:RS). Draft:Alfa Theatre has no reliable sources just some links to YouTube videos. If it has reviews etc as you say then you need to add those sources. Sources are not to show some thing exists, but that it is notable. If you have been contributing and have not "seen such a general, unexplained requirement" see Wikipedia:Five pillars. Wikipedia:Notability and Wikipedia:Verifiability are key to all articles. Having an article on a different language Wikipedia is of no relevance as all Wikipedias have their own guidelines. Wikis including Wikipedia and other user generated content are not reliable sources. As for Academy of Performing Arts, Tel Aviv that is also not sourced, and could be moved to draft or nominated for deletion but for now I have just tagged to see if anyone improves.
