07:57:50, 13 July 2019 review of draft by Falconite007Edit

Hello, I submitted my draft again after some revisions. It's been pending for about a month now. I'm just a bit confused since the last few times the reviews took about a week's time. Hope I did not make any mistake while submitting.

Falconite007 (talk) 07:57, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Falconite007. The draft is in the pool to be reviewed. The current backlog is 16 weeks. Reviewers are volunteers and are not required to go through drafts in any particular order. Some fish among the newest, perhaps looking for ones that can be quickly failed or accepted. That may explain why your earlier versions were disposed of quickly. Check back near the end of October. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:10, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

hi. why so long to review this edition of the draft? thx.

Hi GipsyG. The draft has been in the pool to be reviewed for 7 weeks. The current backlog is 16 weeks. Reviewers are volunteers and are not required to go through drafts in any particular order. Some fish among the newest, perhaps looking for ones that can be quickly failed or accepted. That may explain why your first version was declined on the day it was submitted. Work on something else while you wait (Wikipedia:Community portal lists ways to help) and try to find solace in the fact that there is no deadline. --Worldbruce (talk) 03:58, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

09:04:51, 14 July 2019 review of draft by GyllilaEdit

Dear Madam/Sir,

Could you tell me how to find out who decided to redirect the search for “convertible money“ to “gold standard”? As much as I know, the two terms are related, but not the same, thus I decided to create a page for “convertible money”.

My submission has been declined twice, because the reviewing users thought that “convertible money” is not widely used and not of public interest. However, if it were so, then nobody would have created a redirection page for “convertible money“ in first place. I guess that’s because they are different users and thus differently well informed, therefore I’d like to directly contact the user or users who have created the redirection. Maybe they can create a page on their own or give me more references so that I can better create the page.

Can you tell me how to find them? Many thanks! Gyllila (talk) 09:04, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

@Gyllila: - hi there. Skysmith created the redirect...and impressive 11 years ago. Most editors of that era aren't around, but Skysmith does occasionally edit, but only rarely. Have you tried setting out the specific differences talking to the reviewers. The sources would need to set out a fairly substantive difference to make it a distinct article - but additional sections to the gold standard article might be an alternate possibility. Nosebagbear (talk) 15:04, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
Strike that - much better answer underneath! (please no duplicate questions) Nosebagbear (talk)

11:51:37, 14 July 2019 review of draft by GyllilaEdit

Thank you for the reply. However, can you please be more clear about the reason? Is it declined because it only contains definition or is it declined because of lack of public coverage? For the first, it’s no problem to add the theory and modeling part, but to the latter, I don’t know how public is public enough for you. “Convertible money” is automatically redirected to “gold standard“ on your site, why did you create this redirection if it’s not of public interest? Maybe another user did that? Can you please tell me how to contact her? Because “convertible money” is only related to “gold standard “ but not the same, it would be misleading to cover them in the same page. In my previous research I never found any source which equates convertible money with gold standard, but I’m also open for different statements which fulfill the criteria you have mentioned to me.

Best regards Gyllila (talk) 11:51, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Gyllila. If you click on Convertible Money you'll be redirected to article Gold standard, but in the upper left corner of the page, under the page title, will be the text (Redirected from Convertible Money). If you click that link, you'll go to the Convertible Money page without being redirected. You can investigate its history like any other page, by clicking the view history tab near the top, to right of centre. The page was created in November 2005‎ as a one sentence definition. This suggests, incidentally, that the expression may not have been first introduced in Guo (2018). The page was turned into a redirect in May 2006‎ by an editor who now edits infrequently. You may leave a message on their talk page, but it's unlikely that you'll receive a quick reply or that they will remember one edit made 13 years ago out of their 23,000 edits.
A redirect does not mean that "convertible money" is equivalent to "gold standard". It only means that Wikipedia doesn't have an article named "convertible money", but that some relevant information can be found in gold standard. Redirects are not deleted if it is plausible that someone might search for the term. People do search for it, but very rarely, only 50 times in the past six months, and there's no way to tell what they wanted information about, perhaps convertibility, perhaps gold standard, perhaps convertible money. One can't assume from the existence of the redirect that there's a public interest in having an encyclopedia article dedicated to the term.
You may continue with the draft, but it would need to cite more than the work of one economist to be accepted. It would also be good if the draft were more than a definition, although a definition might be accepted as a stub article as long as it is clear that the expression is not a neologism. According to Google Ngram Viewer, the expression first appeared in books in the 1870s, its peak usage was from about 1905 to 1910, it saw a modest resurgence from the mid-1930s to about 1960, and a blip of usage in the 1990s. Writing a new encyclopedia article is one of the most difficult, time consuming, and frustrating things an editor new to Wikipedia can attempt. You would be more likely to succeed at it if you spent some time becoming familiar with the workings of Wikipedia, perhaps by editing existing articles in the scope of Wikipedia:WikiProject Economics, if that's your area of interest. You can always return to convertible money later. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:36, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

10:21:34, 15 July 2019 review of submission by Softball beastsEdit

Hi there. I'm trying to create an article for my softball club which has been declined due to unverifiable sources. The source I'm citing is the results printed on the website of the federal governing body for the sport in my country. I'm not sure what further source I can cite that would be more verifiable than this. Could you possibly help point me in the right direction? I was modelling my article based on another club in my town that has started this year and only cites news articles, yet their article for the club was accepted and published ( Basel Dragons AFC).

If you could help or suggest a route to investigate what sources are acceptable for a sports club it would be very much appreciated. Best regards, SB Softball beasts (talk) 10:21, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Softball beasts, Since you are one of the member of the subject, you have a conflict of interest here. Please note that Wikipedia strongly discourage editor with COI to create or edit the affected page as it is hard to write the content in nuetral point of view. Pls declare your COI in the article talk page and your user page. The sources we need are independent, reliable such as from the newspapers, books or reliable journals. The sources you provided are not independent since they associated with the subject. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 13:11, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Dear sir/madam --

I recently asked for help in getting a timely review of a draft Wiki page that has been pending for over 10 months, and I received this "sharp" reply from "Worldbruce." Please note that my message below was drafted in an effort to solicit help, nothing else. "Worldbruce" did not explain if the review can be expedited given the fact that it has been rejected multiple times over the last 10 months. If nothing else, can you offer guidance re: whether the current draft will stand a chance of being accepted?

@Pmurray123: - it was declined (not rejected, which is similar but indicates the reviewer thinks it's a permanent decision), on the grounds of notability.
In short, the sourcing you have isn't good enough - you need multiple sources that are secondary, reliable, independent and in-depth. Your sources don't meet all those conditions. The game may not be big enough to have generated that level of suitable coverage, I don't know. Nosebagbear (talk) 15:11, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to go over the article on Ljupčo Santov Gymnasium Kočani so quickly. Regarding the need to cite sources, I basically translated it all from the Macedonian page:

I do work at the school, but only in the capacity as a Peace Corps volunteer. A lot of the Macedonian page was NOT included, as it was quite subjective and contained outdated and false information. Is there something in particular that needs citation? I could do some research and try to get information from the ministry, but it's very hard to get that kind of stuff out here in Macedonia.

Request on 15:17:17, 15 July 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Ryn 112Edit

I have been advised that the detail I have placed on the wiki page that I have submitted for Mark Leake cannot be accepted as it infringes copyright regulations. The detail that has been written was taken from Mark's own university people page with his permission and run past him before placing on the webpage to ensure that he was happy with the content, is this not enough to allow it to be used? Thank you for your support

Ryn 112 (talk) 15:17, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Ryn 112. The source page states "© University of York", so Leake doesn't have the power to grant a license to reuse it. There are mechanisms by which the University could "donate" copyrighted material (see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials), but the effort probably isn't worth it. Material written for places other than Wikipedia was written for a different purpose, so it is rarely suitable for the encyclopedia. Such text almost always has to be rewritten anyway.
Also note that the bulk of any article should come from independent sources, so not from Leake or his employer. Furthermore, a draft should not be "run past him ... to ensure that he was happy" with it. It is not his article, but an article about him. If you're concerned about making him happy, you have a conflict of interest, and it would be a bad idea to write about him on Wikipedia at all. --Worldbruce (talk) 19:25, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Fede-isr (talk) 18:59, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Fede-isr The draft is full of empty marketing-speak used to promote the subject without imparting or plainly summarizing verifiable facts.
  • "advancing and creating opportunities for ... technology solutions to gain recognition in global markets"
  • "initiative presented financial technology companies, the opportunity to present and incorporate their solutions into Citi's core digital capabilities, accelerating the bank's development through Crowdsourcing solutions and generating an Open banking strategy."

Thank you for your response. If you believe, now that you've added a second reference, that the reason given for the rejection no longer applies, then you may resubmit the draft to have it re-evaluated. To do so, add {{subst:submit}} to the top of the draft. Wikipedia's inclusion criteria discount sources designed to hype an album release, and put a premium on critical analysis and objective post-release measures. Until the album is released, I think any article about it is likely to be redirected to the band article as "too soon", but I could be mistaken. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:45, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

I have submitted this article twice. When I resubmitted, I addressed the three comments made by the declining reviewer: (1) use of YouTube references - all are gone now (2) use of the subject's website as a source - removed (3) use of placeholders for photos - removed. I now have all independent, reputable sources not at all related to the subject. Yet now another reviewer has declined the article, telling me that I need independent, reputable sources not at all related to the subject. There is a comment about articles tangentially referring to the subject: that may be true of 2 or 3 out of 14 articles but certainly not all or even most. It seems that the goal post keeps on moving, reviewer to reviewer, and every time I comply with one reviewer's demands the next reviewer makes more of his/her own. This last reviewer's comments are simply not true, as if he did not read the sources and simply copied the grounds for declining. Is there any form of appeal?

Hi Colaguy101. Wikipedia's content is determined by previously published information rather than the personal experience of editors. You and any answers you might give to questions are not a source that may be used on Wikipedia unless that material has been published in a reliable source, such as a textbook, an academic journal, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Review of Books, etc.

However I believe that I have used plenty of reputable third-party sources to evidence my article, including Bloomberg, The Art Newspaper, Vogue, Christie's, and Antiques Trade Gazette.

Any advice that you can give on how I can improve the chances for my article to be accepted would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,

I'm assuming my draft was denied because I have a COI. If not, then why was it rejected? Either way, how can I still get a page created for the business I am interning for? Dnck26 (talk) 17:52, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Dnck26 I declined it because it was a blatant advert. Unless the company has been reported on in-depth in multiple independent sources we cannot have an article about it. Theroadislong (talk) 17:55, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Dnck26 - as a secondary note, I've dropped a notice on your talk page. As an intern you count as a paid editor (actually paid or otherwise) - as such you need to disclose your link on your userpage. Nosebagbear (talk) 21:03, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

18:14:08, 16 July 2019 review of draft by WilliamwordEdit

Hi - for the draft of GFP Real Estate, would like to understand how to change to get this approved or how it reads like an advertisement.

"Encyclopedia articles need to be written from a neutral point of view, and should refer to a range of independent, reliable, published sources, not just to materials produced by the creator of the subject being discussed. This is important so that the article can meet Wikipedia's verifiability policy and the notability of the subject can be established. If you still feel that this subject is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, please rewrite your submission to comply with these policies."

The topic is relevant and worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia.

The article is factual and references the following sources:

5 references for New York Times 4 references for Commercial Observer (notable real estate industry source) 3 references for The Real Deal (notable real estate industry source) 1 reference for the Financial Times 1 reference for POLITICO

plus assorted other industry articles and sources for 20 references total. One reference was to their company website to confirm the corporate address. Could that be the cause for rejection?

The article was written neutrally, conveying what the referenced articles outlined. Not sure what needs to be edited out to make it acceptable in this instance.

thanks much William

Williamword (talk) 18:14, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Draft is certainly not written neutrally, it is full of trumpery "one of the significant developers within New York City" "the firm has acquired 10 properties with the acquisitions comprising more than 2.7 million square feet and valued at over $1.3 billion" "visionary philanthropist" " industry's most influential people".

Request on 22:10:05, 16 July 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by TannerbyerEdit

To whom it concerns,

I submitted a draft of a Wikipedia page as mentioned above, but it was declined primarily because of notability purposes. I am confused because I included many reliable secondary sources. At this point, I am wondering if it is worth the effort to rewrite and resent a draft for potential publication if you don't like all the sources I have already provided. Looking for any guidance, thank you.

23:49:05, 16 July 2019 review of submission by Irish BirdcatcherEdit

Irish Birdcatcher (talk) 23:49, 16 July 2019 (UTC) My article was deleted, (on Trumpator the horse) and I know it was a short article but it has reliable sources and its a proven real horse. Its not a joke about Donald Trump.

Hi Irish Birdcatcher. I assume that by "My article was deleted", you mean Draft:Trumpator was rejected.
Your thesis seems to be that Trumpator should be included as a stand-alone article because he sired one or more major winners. One of the WP:NEQUESTRIAN criteria says horses may be presumed notable if they meet the general notability guideline (GNG) for being the sire of a major competitor. "If they meet GNG" means received significant coverage in multiple, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject.
More discussion and analysis is needed than is provided by a pedigree. Seek advice at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Horse racing about where to look for detailed coverage. They'll be familiar with the British racing / breeding press of that period. Perhaps something like this might be a start, although it isn't much more than a pedigree in prose form. If you can find three in-depth sources, ensure that they leave no claim in the draft unsupported. The only source in the current draft doesn't say anything about Trumpator being leading sire or siring Sorcerer. --Worldbruce (talk) 16:01, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Why did you decline the submission, is it because there's not much info?

EPICGAMER890 (talk) 09:02, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

@EPICGAMER890: - this was rejected because there wasn't sufficient secondary source coverage that was both reliable and independent. It was rejected rather than declined because the reviewer felt that you wouldn't be able to find enough (not just not enough atm).

First of all, I don't appreciate the rude tone of the comment left by the reviewer DGG on my page. I'm very familiar with what wikipedia is and how it works so their comment were completely unnecessary. I've provided ample verifiable and independent references for this subject and all of them are NOT just press as the reviewer mentioned. If someone can provide some actual assistance as to how I can improve this article and get it up to the standard to be moved to the live space instead of leaving potentially biased and condescending comments on my talk page, that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Viocox24. You also asked about this draft on the reviewer's talk page. That is the best place to start. They may say something that you hadn’t considered, or at least give a more detailed explanation that may prove useful. If, after discussing it with them, you think the reviewer was mistaken, then you may get a second opinion by resubmitting the draft.

@Dsmith167: - a re-review on the grounds that the initial reviewer was wrong is usually done in a couple of days. A re-review because an error was highlighted and a fix has been attempted is roughly treated as a new submission (time-wise). As such, we have some drafts that have been waiting nearly 100 days.

This article is still a work in progress and will be edited as time goes on and more information is available.

I believe this article deserves to be approved and moved to the article page since it satisfies every other requirement.

Tdurotoye (talk) 09:53, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

@Tdurotoye: - I question the reliability of the sources. If nothing else, functionally all the content between the 1st and 2nd sources are shared - they're just duplicating the feature list, rather than actually creating significant coverage of their own. At best they'd count as a single source. The 3rd and 4th sources definitely aren't sufficiently detailed. I concur with the reviewers Nosebagbear (talk) 10:52, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
You will need to remove all the external links from the body of the article, we don't use them. Then find independent reliable sources that discuss the topic in depth. It does not satisfy WP:GNG at the moment. Theroadislong (talk) 10:56, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

I have tried to create a wikipedia page that is not biased or advertising Simworx, however it is still being rejected. Do I need to remove some of the detailing even though they have sources? I need guidance on how to get our page accepted.

NicoleSangster (talk) 07:28, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi NicoleSangster. The draft doesn't demonstrate notability because it cites the wrong kinds of sources. It relies heavily on trade publications (Blooloop, Attractions Management (and other titles from The Leisure Media Company), NewsParcs, Park World, Leisure Management, Euro Amusement Professional, Insider Media, InterGame, InterPark (UK), and Live Design). Because of their limited audience and often too-cozy relationship with companies in the industry they cover, trade publications don't help establish notability.
Most of the other sources are companies which are partners with, or customers of, Simworx (Air Zoo, City of Dreams Manila, Groupo Parques Reunidos, iP2 Entertainment, RoboCoaster, Sun World Ba Na Hills). They are not arms-length. They have a vested interest in promoting what they got from you. These sources also suffer from a lack of depth about Simworx. Several don't mention it at all, and others mention it only in passing. Theme Park Construction Board is user-generated, so it is not a reliable source. Wisata Bandung is a trivial mention.
Scholarly sources (books and academic journals) are usually best. Notability can also be demonstrated by high-quality journalistic sources with a broad audience, such as The Guardian, The Financial Times, the BBC, and the like. The reviewer has rejected the draft because no sources appear to exist that would establish the notability of the topic. Consequently, no amount of editing will get your page accepted. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:47, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

More reference links added to the article as requested. Please review again and provide your feedback. Dalugama (talk) 09:09, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Dalugama. The draft has been returned to the pool to be reviewed. You may continue improving it while you wait (the current backlog is about 4 months). There are general suggestions in Help:Your first article and Wikipedia:Article development. Specifically, it's a bad idea to place more than about 3 inline citations after a single simple sentence. Either squeeze more content out of some of the sources, or eliminate the weaker sources (the non-independent ones, the ones from sources that don't have a solid reputation for fact-checking and accuracy, and the very brief ones). Also, one external link to the organization's home page is fine, but try to convert the other external links into references by expanding the article and citing them. There shouldn't be a large number of external links. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:29, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

My post was rejected with the response "Undefined" - it would be helpful if someone could tell me why it was rejected so that I can fix it. I have placed references in the document inline. I don't know what else I am supposed to do...

Jonnykaldor Your draft has zero reliable sources. Linked in and iTunes are not suitable. Theroadislong (talk) 11:35, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

11:31:59, 19 July 2019 review of submission by HHelvisEdit

Hello. So my review got stopped because of this reason - "Basically a press release" and no more explanation. How can I know that someone will think of it as PR when it's not like that? Other exchanges have the same type of Wikipedia text, but mine is a "press release" How can I improve it so by that user opinion it does not look as a press release? What should I do? HHelvis (talk) 11:31, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

HHelvis The topic is not sufficiently notable for inclusion in Wikipedia. Please wait until you can find multiple in-depth coverage in reliable sources. Theroadislong (talk) 11:37, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

How can I now re-submit for approval, I added more resources. I don't have an option to re-submit it. I see a STOP sign.

@HHelvis: The reason for the STOP sign is that rejection is meant to be final, to convey that the topic is not notable (not suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia). No amount of editing can fix that. There is no option to re-submit because volunteers do not intend to review it again.
What should you do? You are welcome to write about something else; we have nearly 6 million topics to choose from. In light of Wikipedia's general sanctions on blockchain and cryptocurrency pages, if you want to write about that sphere you may wish to explore alternative outlets. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:06, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Then tell me what is the difference between Binace exchange Wikipedia and ours - It the same type, then it's should be blocked also!

@HHelvis: - it's worth reading WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS on that, but I'd also note that Binance includes sources tech crunch, fortune, cnn and cnbc (the latter two are due to a major theft, but notability can be generated from bad coverage too) Nosebagbear (talk) 14:45, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Can you please tell me why my article on the London (Canada) Chamber of Commerce was rejected, but this on about the Guelph Chamber of Commerce is ok? Both use primary sources...

Or is it because the Guelph one is longer?
