Request on 21:42:38, 30 July 2020 for assistance on AfC submission by LisalibrarianEdit


Hello Missvain,

I apologize for taking so long to follow up on this project. I only just realized that my proposed AfC on Design Institute of San Diego had been rejected due to a lack of reliable sources. Since the draft page has now been deleted, I just requested its reinstatement so that I can review the sources I used and attempt to correct the problems.

As I stated in my conflict-of-interest declaration, I am currently employed as the Librarian at Design Institute of San Diego. As a librarian, I appreciate Wikipedia's commitment to the use of reliable sources. I looked at the Wikipedia entries of many other colleges and universities as I drafted the DI page, and it seems that an institution's website may be used as a reliable source for basic information about the institution (for example, number of students, or campus facilities) but information that is really marketing material aimed at prospective students should be cited. If there is anything else I should know about the appropriate use of an institution's website as a source of information for that institution's Wikipedia page, please let me know where I can find additional guidance.

Once the draft page is restored, I will examine the sources I used. If you are willing, I would appreciate the opportunity to ask more questions about the suitability of specific sources in this context.

Thank you very much, Lisalibrarian (talk) 21:42, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I looked up the official website and the About >> regional accreditation; seems worthy of having a basic non-marketing'y Wiki article! If you can populate more of and also iron out just a few of the existing sourcings, like maybe some CA newspaper published am article when the school was incepted and/or had a Grand Opening, I think republication would go through. Cheers. -From Peter {a.k.a. Vid2vid (talk | contribs)} 06:49, 11 August 2020 (UTC).

Your inputEdit

I have an RfC going on at Talk:Gwar#RfC_about_GwarBar_vs_GWARbar regarding using all caps in an article and would appreciate the input of some long-standing Wikipedia editors who may be familiar with the policy, or at least be able to interpret the existing policy with some clarity. Thanks for your time! NJZombie (talk) 21:47, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Bwhahaha...not every day that GWAR comes across my talk page. I've seen then in concert a few times...last time was with the Misfits reunion tour in the early 2000s. Oy. Anyway, I'll go take a gander! Missvain (talk) 22:13, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I appreciate the input. Between 1990 and 2003, I think I saw them 30 times. These days, my fandom for them is bit more casual. haha! Thanks again! NJZombie (talk) 23:00, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
That's awesome, ha! I'm just impressed that the restaurant still exists. I never went when I was in Richmond. So funny... Missvain (talk) 23:33, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
