Draft:Hind AleryaniEdit

Hi Legacypac -- I just want you to re-check the above mentioned article along with its references. The last submission was declined for notability and I think she is a well notable activist. Three of the references put her name in the headline. If you put her name in a google search, tens of results will show her news, TED talk and her Arabic Wikipedia article page. --Mohammed.Almussaabi (talk) 18:54, 4 August 2018 (UTC)


Good day Legacypac

Requesting to review Draft:Bhagshesh.

Thank you



You deleted my page for Julie Carlson, noting that you didn't think the citations showed notability. However, there are several full-length profiles of Ms. Carlson cited throughout the page. Could you please let me know how I can improve the page to show you the notability, and re-submit?

Thanks so much for your help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rosied28 (talkcontribs) 00:05, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi, you rejected my article on the British band coldharbourstores. I based my article on a similar size British group, whose notability is also similar: Epic 45 - who do have a wikipedia page, which if anything has less notability. The sources for that band are almost identical. Why are the author for the Epic 45 page's sources and notability acceptable and mine for coldharbourstores are not? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks Coldharbourstoresfan Coldharbourstoresfan (talk) 19:49, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Legacypac,

This is the second time it has been deleted as abandoned. You'll need to follow the refund instructikns Legacypac (talk) 06:37, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

28 April 2018 submission review of the page Ben-Soussan T.D.Edit

Hello Legacypac, thank you for your message. It is the first I try to create a new page on the English Wikipedia and your suggestions and tips are very helpful. Thank you very much, sicerely Pasciutoale (talk) , 28 April 2018 (UTC)

Skycoin pageEdit

Hi Legacypac, I wish to contest the deletion of the Skycoin page as per reasoning below.

You need toEdit

know that checking for copy-vio is an integral part of your duty as an AFC reviewer, especially when you are accepting some stuff.See Thermogelling polymer.And, this seems to be a recurring mistake.WBGconverse 03:45, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Not a normal submission. I did check that page on earwig as I check all AfC pages. I could ask why YOU failed to find the copyvio about six months ago when (presumably during NPR) you sent the same page to Draft space questioning notability? It then rotted there until another user reviewing G13 eligible pages edited it to save it from deletion. I spotted it as a blue link in a sea of red on the Stale Draft report and returned it to mainspace for wider review by knowledgable editors on a technical topic. Kindly don't criticise me for not catching something you missed 6 months earlier. Any Admin can verify the page history. Cheers Legacypac (talk) 15:45, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Just as a note, Rosied28, your draft page at Draft:Julie Carlson has not been deleted, just declined. Primefac (talk) 01:24, 9 July 2018 (UTC) (talk page stalker)

Going to Wikimania?Edit

Hi Legacypac -- I just wanted to check in because I'm headed to Wikimania in a few days, and I'm hoping to meet some AfC reviewers. I'm wondering if you'll be there. Let me know! -- MMiller (WMF) (talk) 21:52, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

No, but thanks for asking. Legacypac (talk) 12:00, 13 July 2018 (UTC)


Hey Legacypac - I was reviewing which you had last looked at. I agree with your comments then that it would be better incorporated into the Vox Media article. Since then, however, the draft has been expanded and I'm now of the sense that it might be so long as to be undue for inclusion in the Vox article. I was going to promote it to mainspace but wanted to check with you first to get your sense/opinion. Do you have any thoughts? Thanks - Chetsford (talk) 19:30, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

The worst that could happen is someone merges it. Legacypac (talk) 12:00, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
Sounds good - just wanted to touch bases with you before I did anything. Thanks! Chetsford (talk) 13:44, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Galit Dahan-CarlibachEdit

Hi LegacyPac, I updated the above page with new material, added references, external links and categories. Do you think it can be returned from drafts into mainspace? Thanks, --Nachum Zitter Librarian (talk) 10:48, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

You don't need my permission to move a page. Legacypac (talk) 06:51, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion contested: Draft:CHEQEdit

Hello Legacypac. I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of Draft:CHEQ, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not unambiguously promotional. Thank you. Eastmain (talkcontribs) 14:51, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Request on 10:46:40, 20 July 2018 for assistance on AfC submission by ZEQFSEdit

Hi there. Can I get a bit of help on my first page creation? You've rejected my work saying that the content already exists. The problem is that the content exists in the wrong place (and there are several problems with that if you read the Jesse Brown page or its talk page). Aside from the very un-NPOV writing there, which I have attempted to fix, the Jesse Brown page is about the journalist who broke the Jian Gomeshi story and people in that page's talk section are complaining that Canadaland links to Jesse Brown when Canadaland and Jesse Brown are different things. Canadaland is also one of the top podcasts in the country. It would be like if This American Life redirected to a very badly written section in Ira Glass's page. That would rightly be a problem so that's what I'm trying to resolve here.

Jesse Brown =/= Canadaland and Canadaland =/= Jesse Brown. My intention was to do my best to fix the Canadaland content, get that page created, stop the Canadaland -> Jesse brown redirection and then link the Canadaland section in Jesse Brown's article to the Canadaland article I wrote.

What can I do to move forward with this? Can you help me?

ZEQFS (talk) 10:46, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Go to Canadaland and write the article. Just replace the redirect with your new content. Legacypac (talk) 00:01, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018Edit


Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

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

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

Vijay Lakshmann PageEdit

Hello! The page that I created for author Vijay Lakshmann was deleted a few weeks ago because it was considered an advertisement and not third party research. I have been trying to get it back but I haven't had any luck. The intention was not to promote the author but to write an unbiased page about hi m and his work that I enjoy. I have several sources as well to back up the information present in the article. I am new to wikipedia so I am still learning the rules and regulations as a content creator. Any insights you can give to help me get my page back will be much appreciated! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ashleyray121 (talkcontribs) 2 August 2018 18:37 (UTC)

Nomination of List of Polish supercentenarians for deletionEdit


A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of Polish supercentenarians 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/List of Polish supercentenarians 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.

You nominated this article for deletion the first time and have yet comment in the current AFD discussion, so I wanted to make sure you knew about it as a courtesy. Newshunter12 (talk) 01:34, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Fritz WinkelstroeterEdit

Dear Legacypac, thank you for reviewing the draft:Fritz Winkelstroeter. I will work on it. But I have a question: Originally I had made the draft under the title draft:Medhananda.Then somebody of Wikipedia changed it into draft:Fritz Winkelstroeter. But this person is known throughout the world under his spiritual name Medhananda, a disciple of Sri Aurobindo; he was a professor at the International Centre of Education at Pondicherry and a writer who has written several books about the old Egyptian psychology and many other books. His civil name Fritz Winkelstroeter is not known very much to the public, so my question is: will somebody who looks for "Medhananda" in Wikipedia find the article in Wikipedia when it is there only under Fritz Winkelstroeter? Or is it a fact that in Wikipedia spiritual names are not allowed? Thank you for your answer, GoldenerBall GoldenerBall (talk) 16:55, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Testing changes to New Pages FeedEdit

Hi Legacypac -- I wanted to get in touch directly to ask if you could take some time to try out the evolving New Pages Feed in the Test Wiki. AfC drafts are listed there now, with more changes coming in the next weeks. We're deploying our changes to Test Wiki first so that reviewers can bring up any issues before they go into English Wikipedia. We really value your opinion, of course. -- MMiller (WMF) (talk) 16:56, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Voted for speedy deletion: Ten MillenniaEdit

Article for Deletion:Ten MillenniaEdit

Hi Legacypac -- You approved an article I wrote after it had been rejected many times for the band not being notable. There are citations that prove the band has charted in the UK charts and has received radio rotation by the BBC. I have just received a notice that an editor feels the following 'Cannot see how this passes WP:NMUSICIAN or WP:GNG. Promotional article created by a WP:SPA with a likely COI'. I really don't know what more I can do to prove that the band is notable. I'd love some advice, if possible? -- Danielle2017! 18:04, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Just a noteEdit

The draft versions of creation-protected pages (such as Draft:George McConnell Davison) to not need a judgement call from an administrator. If any AFC reviewer feels the page is acceptable, they can ask that the protection be lowered so that it can be accepted. Primefac (talk) 15:41, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
