Good morning,

I recently noticed that a topic I created more than a year ago, now got deleted. Can you please help with this? A lot of research went into the topic at the time based on valued and reputable sources. I still believe that the topic adds value to Wikipedia's goals and mission.

Please assist me with the restoration thereof, if more editing needs to be done I am open to all suggestions.

Best regards, Annie

New Page Patrol newsletter September 2021Edit

 
New Page Review queue September 2021

Hello SL93,

Please join this discussion - there is increase in the abuse of Wikipedia and its processes by POV pushers, Paid Editors, and by holders of various user rights including Autopatrolled. Even our review systems themselves at AfC and NPR have been infiltrated. The good news is that detection is improving, but the downside is that it creates the need for a huge clean up - which of course adds to backlogs.

Copyright violations are also a serious issue. Most non-regular contributors do not understand why, and most of our Reviewers are not experts on copyright law - and can't be expected to be, but there is excellent, easy-to-follow advice on COPYVIO detection here.

At the time of the last newsletter (#25, December 2020) the backlog was only just over 2,000 articles. New Page Review is an official system. It's the only firewall against the inclusion of new, improper pages.

There are currently 706 New Page Reviewers plus a further 1,080 admins, but as much as nearly 90% of the patrolling is still being done by around only the 20 or so most regular patrollers.

If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be part of the New Page Reviewer user group, please consider asking any admin to remove you from the list. This will enable NPP to have a better overview of its performance and what improvements need to be made to the process or its software.

Various awards are due to be allocated by the end of the year and barnstars are overdue. If you would like to manage this, please let us know. Indeed, if you are interested in coordinating NPR, it does not involve much time and the tasks are described here.

Request on 05:15:41, 16 September 2021 for assistance on AfC submission by Fatlady903Edit


Hello,

I know its been over two months, but I've just completely forgot to reach out. I have a question about why my submission was declined. The reasoning was because my sources were found to be unreliable. My question is why are they unreliable? The major source that the article cites is part of an 8 volume encyclopedic archive of dominican art history written by a well known dominican painter and art historian. For easier referencing, the ISBN is 978-99934-913-1-6. I'm curious as to what is unreliable? The other two sources cited were from a reputable news source and a book about a comparative study between caribbean cities (ISBN: 978-607-9275-36-5 for referencing). Thanks, 

Fatlady903 (talk) 05:15, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

@Fatlady903: That wasn't the decline reason. It was "This submission is not adequately supported by reliable sources". I will approve it if you can add citations to the last paragraph. SL93 (talk) 05:17, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

Ah, okay now I understand. I've added the proper citations and resubmitted it just now. Also this is my first time interacting with a talk page so I don't know if I am replying to your message right. Let me know if there are any other drawbacks in the article. Thank you.

Prep setsEdit

Hey SL93, I'm sure you've been around at DYK much longer than I have, but I was told (and my experience has borne out) to leave a couple of slots in the last prep set open just in case a special occasion hook needs to be kicked in at the last second (or if an image slot hook has a copyright problem and needs to be moved out), and since it's easier to build whole prep sets at a time, i usually just leave the last prep set blank. I'm open to other reasoning, though—how do you want to approach this? theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (they/them) 00:38, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

Theleekycauldron I only filled it because the queues are in a backlog and we should be moving back to two a day soon per the DYK talk page. There is no need to do anything. SL93 (talk) 00:50, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
we're back to 120 already? oh boy, that won't be fun for the admins. theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (they/them) 00:56, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

Request on 09:59:50, 26 September 2021 for assistance on AfC submission by Mivida2021Edit


Hi I just submitted my article for the second time with added references from published sources like newspapers and e magazines.Yet the draft wasn't accepted. There were few citations too but my draft isn't passable yet. Can you kindly help me understand what's gone wrong again? I really need assistance in this to make my article accepted in wiki. can you help. my kind regards. Thank you.

Mivida2021 (talk) 09:59, 26 September 2021 (UTC)

@Mivida2021: The article is almost completely unreferenced. SL93 (talk) 14:22, 26 September 2021 (UTC)
Breakdown of the sources -
The first source only has "Canadian Chamber of Commerce: www.cancham.org.eg"
The second source is a press release so it is an unreliable source.
The third source only has one sentence of coverage about the organization in a three sentence article.
The fourth source is workable.
The fifth source only mentions the organization for a few sentences.
The sixth source is a home page.
The seventh source is a home page.
The eighth source is workable.
The ninth source doesn't have significant coverage of the organization. SL93 (talk) 14:22, 26 September 2021 (UTC)
Add at least one more source with significant coverage (companies and organizations are held to a higher standard for references that have significant coverage), source the article correctly, and remove all promotional language - "located in the heart of Cairo", "majorly working", "defined achievements", "They believe in the development of small businesses", etc. SL93 (talk) 14:22, 26 September 2021 (UTC)


Thank you. This is made clear. I will work on it. I have resubmitted it with another reliable source i could find. Not sure if you could look into it. but if possible can you say if the edit is fine to be passable. Would really appreciate if you could guide a bit further if possible. Thanks in advance.

Hi SL93Edit

Hi, I wrote an article about Dbvisualizer and got this: "This submission's references do not show that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia article—that is, they do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject. Before any resubmission, additional references meeting these criteria should be added (see technical help and learn about mistakes to avoid when addressing this issue). If no additional references exist, the subject is not suitable for Wikipedia."

What can I do to get this approved? Thank you

Best regards Hagelin-Linder — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hagelin-Linder (talkcontribs) 15:59, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

Hagelin-Linder Source review.
First reference - It is a description of the software with a download link and user reviews.
Second - A Disqus blog = unreliable source when the author isn't notable in that field.
Third - It is not independent of the subject and is a download page.
Fourth - It's a profile of the creator so it is not an independent source. It doesn't even verify the sentence that it is used as a reference on.
Fifth - It is not independent of the subject because it is from BEA Systems which partnered with DbVisualizer.
Sixth - A list of alternatives is not significant coverage.
Seventh - It doesn't mention the software.
Eighth - Unreliable blog.
Ninth - A simple description page for the software. Also not independent coverage.
Tenth - Not independent coverage.
Eleventh - YouTube. Not even from a reliable publisher.
Twelth - The official website = not independent.
The references are not even sourcing much of the content that it proclaims to be sourcing. SL93 (talk) 03:28, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

The Chestnut Man pageEdit

Hi SL93, you recently approved my submission of the draft for The Chestnut Man. While this submission was pending (I had to resubmit it twice), another editor created the same page, under the name The Chestnut Man (TV series). By this point, that page is more developed than the one I created, but essentially, there exists a duplicate of the same page. What is the easiest way to merge the two? Should I create a redirect, or is there a better way to go about it? Thank you. Revirvlkodlaku (talk) 01:52, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

Revirvlkodlaku I moved the article back to draft space and tagged the redirect for speedy deletion. Once that happens, I will rename the other article to The Chestnut Man. Though I am wondering how long you knew of the other article. SL93 (talk) 02:04, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

I have sent you a note about a page you reviewedEdit

yeesh, this automatic note thing sucks. give me a second to rewrite: hi! small question about the Spotify Kids article: I'm a little new to this, but I'm not seeing super sturdy sourcing—? business insider and tech crunch are "no consensus" at WP:RSP (the latter being specifically noted as less useful for notability), MakeUseOf isn't even notable enough for an entry, much less reputable, and I can't see how Adweek is reliable either. The verge is reliable, so that's some moderately in-depth coverage—what am I missing here? Help is appreciated theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (they/them) 04:10, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

Theleekycauldron Odd that it notified me. I marked it as reviewed due to there being no consensus of TechCrunch and Business Insider being reliable. I would say that Adweek is reliable based on its Wikipedia article and this. You could tag place a notability tag on it and get these comments to the creator. SL93 (talk) 04:27, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
I think of it as like AfD. A no consensus close defaults to keep. I also don't see any use in tagging the article when many sources like this can be found within seconds on Google. SL93 (talk) 04:37, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
oh, interesting. I always thought no consensus on an AfD defaults to keep, and no consensus on sourcing defaults to unreliable. but the variety source is solid, yeah—no reason to tag when the sourcing is out there. Thanks for the explanation! theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (they/them) 04:40, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
Theleekycauldron I think it of that way personally, partially due to TechCrunch being used as a reference in thousands of articles. SL93 (talk) 04:42, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
