06:31, 22 May 2024 review of submission by 2402:E000:51D:C1D3:0:0:0:1 edit

I have citation added. 2402:E000:51D:C1D3:0:0:0:1 (talk) 06:31, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

This draft has been rejected and will therefore not be considered further.
In the future, it would great if the citations you add actually supported something in the draft, or even just were in any way related to it. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 06:38, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
I've had a look at the draft, the deleted page and other parts.
Unfortunately, I can't see the rules around if someone is notable enough for an article being met here on the current sources avaliable online. Sorry. Mdann52 (talk) 07:05, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

i have sources only imdb and knowledge panel google, and two articles on medium about him, i have less sources, but whatever i provided is genuine. also he is new actor so that he don't have many articles about him. now tell me how i can give more info about him when i have this much info only, but his name is mentioned in ole aale cast on wikipedia. kindly request you to approve article . all information is valid and genuine. and if this article approve , more info about him get updated by the time, currently article need to approve . Editorharpsweetrolls (talk) 11:15, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Editorharpsweetrolls we cannot cite IMDb, as it is user-generated. (see WP:IMDB for more info) We also cannot cite Medium, as it is a blog-hosting service. The draft needs more sources about Poonia himself, not just the movies he acted in, especially when it's a small role like 'Guest'. (see WP:NACTOR) Nothing 'needs' to be accepted. This isn't a race.

19:30, 22 May 2024 review of submission by Alearzrsm edit

Hello, I have seen my draft declined for the Hybrid Practice band, but I have added a lot of information especially taken from the Encyclopedia Metallum Music Archive online. Furthermore, I am the founder of the band itself, so I can clarify further things if you need to know. Please let me know what to do. Alearzrsm (talk) 19:30, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Alearzrsm, as the founder of the band, you have a glaring conflict of interest. You must make the mandatory Paid contributions disclosure. Encyclopaedia Metallum consists of user-contributed content and is not a reliable source on Wikipedia. Vast swathes of your draft are unreferenced, which violates the core content policy of Verifiability. Your other references are not independent. The repeated red links are bizarre, distracting and unnecessary. Your draft fails to make the case that this is a notable band. Cullen328 (talk) 19:45, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Hello, Alearzrsm. Like many new editors, you have plunged straight into the challenging task of creating a new article without first acquiring the necessary skills - this is likely to lead to a great deal of frustration for you and others.
I always recommend new editors to spend (at least) several weeks making improvements to existing articles and learning how Wikipedia works before even trying this. Once you have understood fundamental principles such as verifiability, reliable sources, neutral point of view, and notability, then is the time to read your first article and try it - not before.
The fact that you are the founder makes it even harder to write an article - the thing to remember is that not one thing that you or your colleagues say or want to say about the band is relevant to the article, unless it has also been said by somebody completely unconnected with you (and not quoting you) and published in a reliable source; and that not one thing that you know about the band should go in the article, unless it has been published in a reliable source.
Basically, you will need to find several sources completely independent of you and the band, which contain enough material about the band to base an article on; and then you will need to forget everything you know about the band, and write a summary of those sources. Do you see why it is difficult to write with a conflict of interest? ColinFine (talk) 20:57, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Does this draft need anything before I submit it for review? OhHaiMark (talk) 00:07, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@OhHaiMark: you need to show that the book is notable, either by WP:GNG or WP:NBOOK, and a single source is not enough for that. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 06:45, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I need to be in Wikipedia so please accept my request even my profile in imdb please accept Sargunajames (talk) 00:26, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Sargunajames we don't have profiles here, only articles about notable topics. Your draft does not meet our notability guidelines for people; it's a promotional draft about yourself. '''[[User:CanonNi]]''' (talkcontribs) 00:30, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

05:02, 23 May 2024 review of submission by ArtAfg edit

The page keeps being declined due to concerns about the reliability of the sources. The sources include Voice of America, BBC, and Afghan channels. Please review. ArtAfg (talk) 05:02, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@ArtAfg: we don't normally provide on-demand reviews here at the help desk. However, this was such an obvious decline that I've just done that. You need to cite your sources inline, not just pile a bunch of external links in the 'References' section; see WP:REFB and WP:ILC for advice.
Please also remove all inline external links, and the excessive ones from the 'External links' section, as these are not compliant with WP:EL. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 05:28, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@ArtAfg: As I noted when I declined the draft, the majority of the sources appear to be articles written by the subject. They only indicate that the subject is a working journalist, not necessarily a notable one. The references need to by WP:RELIABLE media, but they also must be about Mr. Orokzai and must be intellectually independent from him. • Gene93k (talk) 15:33, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

11:52, 23 May 2024 review of submission by PslyKittenNameGame edit

What if this is new information that has not previously been cited in historical literature that can be translated? Some of this is ancient information passed verbally, written in Sanskrit, and hieroglyphics PslyKittenNameGame (talk) 11:52, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@PslyKittenNameGame: Wikipedia does not publish "new information". This is covered in the policy on orginal research. Specifically, "On Wikipedia, original research means material—such as facts, allegations, and ideas—for which no reliable, published source exists.To demonstrate that you are not adding original research, you must be able to cite reliable, published sources that are directly related to the topic of the article and directly support the material being presented.". So, if the "new information" has not been cited in literature, you cannot include it in an article. MarcGarver (talk) 11:58, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Can I get help from someone in improving the article quality? Gothicheights65 (talk) 15:02, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Gothicheights65: you need to be more specific – what help do you need? In any case, you've resubmitted this draft, so you will get feedback on it sooner or later, once a reviewer gets around to assessing it. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 15:09, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

19:51, 23 May 2024 review of submission by Valuenyc edit

Only a few hours ago, I requested help DELETING this page in order to allow someone else's newer draft to be considered. As I explained in my proposed deletion, he is being held up by the existence of this earlier draft. @GB fan: deleted my PROD saying it is not used in Draft space. This is something I feared, but I did hope for some direction about how to get rid of this thing. Minutes later, @Theroadislong: finally declined my draft. This is fine (really, a welcome development after about 6 weeks while someone else has developed something more substantial), but I'm still at a bit of a loss. How do I get this declined draft out of the way of someone who wants to get his new draft considered? It _does_ appear that there are now two drafts in the queue on this subject, but I can't speak with authority. So I'll repeat a central question: Should the person taking this project over just paste his new draft over my old submission? Will that provoke a new review? Or do we have to delete this draft page in order to get a new draft considered? and if so, how? Please accept apologies for creating complications, but I'm trying to set it right. I will be very grateful for any direction here. Valuenyc (talk) 19:51, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Valuenyc, Where is the second draft? ~ GB fan 20:05, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Valuenyc the declined draft is not in the way 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 20:48, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Continuing to apologize .... Before I posted the PROD, my successor author (@Mightythos77:) received a rejection saying "This appears to be a duplicate of another submission, Felix Albrecht Harta, which is also waiting to be reviewed. To save time we will consider the other submission and not this one." This is dated 18:10, 21 May 2024 (UTC).
Then as I said, in quick succession after I posted my PROD dated 15:44 on May 23, @GB fan: deleted my PROD and @Theroadislong: rejected my draft. So, trying to keep it simple here, is @Timtrent: saying that only Mightythos77's draft is now in the queue for review? or it is not? Since mine is still displaying in DRAFT space, is mine still occupying space in the queue? and his also in the queue for review?
@GB fan: and @Timtrent: : Many thanks for taking the time to try to sort thru this. I appreciate it very much. Valuenyc (talk) 15:46, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Valuenyc Do not tag team with your nephew. That is meat puppetry. 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 16:02, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Timtrent: If my response is not 100% on point, it is only because I do not entirely understand your post. If I understand meatpuppetry as explained on the page you linked, you're simply way off. Neither of us is promoting one side of a dispute or another, let alone causing "disruption" on wikipedia, with two drafts relatively hidden from view of the vast majority of users. What dispute would we talking about anyway? There is none.
I intended to suggest that @Mightythos77: simply paste his text over mine, leaving one draft in the queue and leaving me out of the picture. I still have no idea whether that was, indeed, the correct way to go, and so far, this Help desk hasn't illuminated much. But that question has become moot since he submitted before I knew about it. Such mis- and cross-communication happens between ordinary mortals.
I appreciate your comment that my draft is "not in the way" and I have finally found the second/later draft in the queue. Given the message Mightythos77 first received however, it was not an unreasonable question.
But I'm even more lost about what "tag-teaming" even means. I can only respectfully point out that this inquiry began with my attempt to simply delete my draft, thus extracting myself from a behind-the-scenes process on wikipedia. Just what are you referring to with tag-teaming? two users inadvertently submitting drafts on the same topic? or two users inquiring about status?
We have both apologized if ignorance has led to some redundancy or mis-guided questions. But accusations like meatpuppetery and tag-teaming are unwarranted. Valuenyc (talk) 14:50, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
What is your actual question, @Valuenyc? Can you précis in a sentence or two, rather than writing War & Peace? -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 15:16, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Globeltime: no, it most certainly is not okay, far from it. Most of your alleged references aren't references, they're just external links piled in the 'References' section. None of your sources are reliable, apart from maybe the last one, which is also useless as it supports nothing in this draft.

08:58, 24 May 2024 review of submission by edit

Hi there,

Could you please let me know what we can do to get this published? I strongly disagree with the lack of notability point - we've included independent sources from household-name publications, like the Telegraph, The Guardian, and The Grocer. None of these are paid articles, and those listed by our competitor, Union Hand-Roasted Coffee, are less independent and 'notable'.

We've done everything according to the feedback of your moderators, and this is now nothing like an advertisement.

For full transparency, I work for Pact Coffee, but the initial submission was done by an independent writer, and this has been cleaned up by your business team - we just want to get this over the line.

Happy to work with you if you feel anything else needs clearing up - we just believe this to be unfair in the spirit of competitive business when our competitor is being held by far less strict standards. (talk) 08:58, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

As this draft has been rejected, if you wish to appeal the rejection you should in the first instance approach the rejecting reviewer directly.
You may wish to read WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS before making your appeal, so that you don't rely too much on the arguments refuted in that.
Who is "we" in your message?
And finally, are you Asmith1990 (who has made a paid-editing disclosure)? If so, please log into your account whenever editing. (And if you're not Asmith1990, then have you made a similar disclosure?) -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 09:07, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I am the employee of this organization, my article about this organization is declined citing I had not enough resources, my question, what I kind of sources, reference I need to put in, in the scenario when I am writing this on behalf of that organization? Ejaz-Booni (talk) 11:49, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Ejaz-Booni As an employee you must declare this under the terms of WP:PAID. I am about to leave instructions on your talk page assuming someone has not already done so. The reviewer perhaps ought to have added to their review:
"We require references from significant coverage about the topic of the article, and independent of it, in multiple secondary sources which are WP:RS please. See WP:42. Please also see WP:PRIMARY which details the limited permitted usage of primary sources and WP:SELFPUB which has clear limitations on self published sources. Providing sufficient references, ideally one per fact referred to, that meet these tough criteria is likely to allow this article to remain. Lack of them or an inability to find them is likely to mean that the topic is not suitable for inclusion, certainly today."

Thank you for your input and attention, Mr. Marcus.

I didn't understand the specific reason why my article was declined, as the explanation was a bit generalized and ambiguous. Was it because it was too short?

I look forward to hearing from you and working together to find a solution for the publication of my article.

Thank you so much, sir. WikiSchlomo-08 (talk) 13:53, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@MicrobiologyMarcus WikiSchlomo-08 (talk) 13:55, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@WikiSchlomo-08 I'm not Mr. Marcus, but I suppose I'll answer anyway. The draft was declined for not meeting notability guidelines. Out of the 3 sources, 2 are from the company's website, and 1 is the software's docs. None of these sources can be used to establish notability. The draft needs independent, reliable sources that have significant coverage on the subject. And, after doing a quick Google search, no such sources were found.

Thank you for sharing the standards.
I did read it, and most of the sources seem to fail in the "Independent of the subject" parameter, as many of the listed sources either share the software or are its creators.
However, I did notice a source that I don't understand why it isn't considered "Solid"... is a large and reputable news magazine with millions of viewers, and I believe it meets the criteria listed.

You need to check that each one of your sources passes the triple criterion of reliable, independent, and significant coverage, as explained in golden rule.
Then, you need to forget everything you know about the subject, and write a neutral summary of what those sources say. ColinFine (talk) 20:52, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Regarding the material I did write, there was any part that did seem a bit biased? If there was, I appreciate your constructive criticism to point me that out (because that will help me to improve the work already done - and possibly to make a better work in future publications).

@WikiSchlomo-08: Medium is just a self-publishing platform, effectively a glorified blogging site, and is not considered reliable in the slightest because anyone can write there anything they want; see WP:MEDIUM. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 18:03, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
According to Wikipedia's own resources, that classification isn't 100% correct.
The platform is an example of social journalism, with a hybrid collection of amateur and professional individuals and publications, including exclusive blogs or publishers on Medium. Although it is often seen as a blog host, it is internally regulated with strict guidelines (similar to how Wikipedia operates).
Therefore, it could arguably be considered a reliable source. WikiSchlomo-08 (talk) 23:58, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
No, not really. See WP:MEDIUM; self-published content is generally not considered reliable. The source in question seems to be written by a herbs expert, which has nothing to do with antivirus software. '''[[User:CanonNi]]''' (talkcontribs) 00:08, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

That's the advertising. Wikipedia is not a product directory. Wikipedia wants to know what independent reliable sources say about a topic, with significant coverage beyond its existence and features- telling how the product is notable.
If you see other articles like your draft, that is only because we haven't addressed them yet. If you want to help us address them, please identify them so we can take action. 331dot (talk) 14:33, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Wikipedia has little interest in what the subject of an article says or wants to say about themselves, or what their associates say about them. Wikipedia is almost entirely interested in what people who have no connection with the subject, and who have not been prompted or fed information on behalf of the subject, have chosen to publish about the subject in reliable sources. If enough material is cited from independent sources to establish notability, a limited amount of uncontroversial factual information may be added from non-independent sources.

Writing an article begins by finding independent reliable sources which discuss the subject of the article in some depth.

Without analysing the sources in detail, it's not possible to say whether they're enough to establish notability. If you feel you've sufficiently addressed the earlier decline reason, then resubmit it and that way you'll get a proper review. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 06:39, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@CreatorOfMinecraftHerobrine We require references from significant coverage about the topic of the article, and independent of it, in multiple secondary sources which are WP:RS please. See WP:42. Please also see WP:PRIMARY which details the limited permitted usage of primary sources and WP:SELFPUB which has clear limitations on self published sources. Providing sufficient references, ideally one per fact referred to, that meet these tough criteria is likely to allow this article to remain. Lack of them or an inability to find them is likely to mean that the topic is not suitable for inclusion, certainly today. 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 07:35, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@CreatorOfMinecraftHerobrine: an individual aircraft would have to be pretty remarkable to be independently notable; just having existed doesn't make it so, and even having featured new technologies or acted as a testbed for them wouldn't really mean it has a lasting legacy etc. What is it about this particular flying machine that would justify its place in a global encyclopaedia? -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 07:42, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@DoubleGrazing. Then how is this article accepted? Only notable stuff here is that this is the first 737 ever built and that it was operated by NASA for flight testing. What else? CreatorMH (talk) 07:55, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@CreatorOfMinecraftHerobrine: please see WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS, which describes a common Wikipedia variant of whataboutery.
If you're unhappy with that article, you're welcome to improve it, or if it cannot be improved, tag it with appropriate maintenance templates, or possibly initiate deletion proceedings.
Now, returning to my question, what makes this aircraft noteworthy enough to be included? -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:18, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@DoubleGrazing. N767BA played a pivotal role in revolutionizing long-haul air travel by introducing advanced aerodynamics, avionics, and operational efficiency. Notably, this was the first Boeing twin-engine wide-body aircraft. N767BA also helped Boeing to reuse some internal and external design for future aircraft types like the Dreamliner, helping Boeing to save money. CreatorMH (talk) 08:28, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
The prototype, leading to other Boeing 767 variants, helped Boeing compete with Airbus's A300, A310, and A330-200. CreatorMH (talk) 08:31, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@CreatorOfMinecraftHerobrine: okay, thanks.
Why doesn't the draft say any/most of that, then? And according to which source are these the case?
And while I can see why being "the first Boeing" of a certain type, "helping Boeing save money", "helping Boeing compete", etc. would make this an important aircraft for Boeing, that doesn't really answer my question why this deserves its own entry in an encyclopaedia.
Anyway, the draft has been submitted, so we don't need to debate this here; you can just wait for the review to take place, and with some luck this may get accepted. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:39, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

What do I need to do before resubmitting? Thank you! ScruffyBoots (talk) 19:22, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@ScruffyBoots not a hoax as I first thought, but not an article. It's a meander through what appears to be a vanity title, just like all hereditary titles. Lacks references.
For a living person we have a high standard of referencing. Every substantive fact you assert, especially one that is susceptible to potential challenge, requires a citation with a reference that is about them, and is independent of them, in multiple secondary sources which are WP:RS, and is significant coverage. Please also see WP:PRIMARY which details the limited permitted usage of primary sources and WP:SELFPUB which has clear limitations on self published sources. Providing sufficient references, ideally one per fact cited, that meet these tough criteria is likely to make this draft a clear acceptance (0.9 probability). Lack of them or an inability to find them is likely to mean that the person is not suitable for inclusion, certainly today.

@Februarymay2003 Three experienced reviewers have now left you independent opinions and advice on the minimalistic draft.

That listing verifies that he is a post holder, no more and no less. This is a pedantic and real distinction.

Hello! This is my second attempt. I was unable to get anyone to respond when I originally posted this on May 17th.

01:42, 27 May 2024 review of submission by Xinxin Ming edit


This submission was rejected due to lack of notability.

Some of the citations are certainly dependent coverage, namely the references to the organization's website and one of the references to an article that was authored by a leader in the organization (Kate McCandless).

However, I have questions about why the other citations don't qualify. Two of the citations are to academic books, independently published by authors unaffiliated with the organization. The lengths of mentions in the books are about a paragraph each. To my eyes, this seemed like it would qualify as "multiple independent reliable sources" as described by Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies). Am I missing something here?

In addition, one of the articles cited was authored by someone unaffiliated with the organization (it was, however, published by a third-party, Northwest Dharma, that exists to promote other Buddhist organizations -- if that is still considered dependent coverage, fair enough, but I'd be curious to know for certain).

What are some concrete examples of additional citations that would help qualify this article for notability, if not independent academic publications?

Any other suggestions for how I might improve this article?

I have, for the record, declared a Conflict of Interest on the talk page that reads:

@Xinxin Ming: the draft has six citations, two to the organisation's own website (obviously not independent), two to Northwest Dharma Association (a primary source), and one to the Matthews book which makes only a brief mention of the organisation (literally two sentences, as far as I can tell). The remaining one I don't have access to, but no matter how good it may be, it alone isn't enough to satisfy WP:ORG; we typically require three sources meeting the standard outlined in WP:GNG.

The tittle of the page was changed and we think that the current tittle is not informative. The tittle seems to overlap with already existing tittles such as "Nanocluster" and "Thiolate-protected gold cluster". Furthermore, it is currently ambiguous and not totally aligned with the content. Is it possible to change the tittle to be more informative? We would suggest it to be "The crystal structures of monolayer protected clusters", because the crystal structures are the main focus of the page. Iridium27 (talk) 05:54, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Iridium27: technically speaking this is no longer an AfC matter, since the article was published a couple of days ago. You should go to the general Help desk or the Teahouse with editing queries like this.
I presume the current title was chosen by the accepting reviewer, because at the time of acceptance the beginning of the draft read:

Monolayer protected clusters (MPCs) are one type of nanoparticles or clusters of atoms. A single MPC contains...

The way encyclopaedia articles (unlike, perhaps, many other works) are written is that the title term (in bold), which defines the subject of the article, is typically the article title, and vice versa.

What should I do so that my article dosen't get rejected. being part of the same organisation on which I am writting article, I am feeling very helpless as even I have to justify that what I am producing is correct. Please help me out in updating the same. Abhi892 (talk) 08:36, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Abhi892: your draft (not yet article) has been rejected.
For future reference, what you should not do is just keep resubmitting without any attempt to address the decline reasons; that is a sure-fire way to end up with a rejection.
What you must also do is disclose your conflict of interest (COI). I've posted instructions on your talk page.
Are you involved in some sort of campaign to create articles on topics related to the Indian military? I'm only asking as we're seeing a lot of such drafts recently. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:41, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
I'm afraid that your feelings are fairly usual for people who attempt the challenging task of creating an article without first spending time learning the necessary skills.
My advice to you - as to all new editors - is to put aside completely the idea of crteating a new article, and spend at least a few weeks making improvements to existing articles and learning about basic principles of Wikipedia, such as verifiability, reliable sources, neutral point of view, and most importantly notability.
When you have an understanding of all those principles, you can read your first article and probably conflict of interest. ColinFine (talk) 13:43, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

09:03, 27 May 2024 review of submission by Musicabdmediaentgroup edit

I am very confused by the reasoning to deny my submitted article (subject: Rollin Jarrett). The submitted subject (article) CLEARY has honorable mentions worldwide and even mentions on wikipedia alone. All films mentioned in the submitted article (Rollin Jarrett) have their very own wikipedia articles and these films are written by Rollin Jarrett (the articles even reference ROLLIN JARRETT as the writer). All actors involved or associated with the films written by Rollin Jarret have their own articles and these articles show their roles in the films that are written by my submitted subject (Rollin Jarrett). Musicabdmediaentgroup (talk) 09:03, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Musicabdmediaentgroup like I said when declining the draft, it does not meet WP:NACTOR in its current state. We cannot cite IMDb or LinkedIn, and the 2 other sources do not mention Jarrett directly (i.e. no significant coverage). Also see WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. '''[[User:CanonNi]]''' (talkcontribs) 09:05, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Your draft has zero independent, reliable published sources and you need to disclose your paid editing status. Theroadislong (talk) 09:06, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for the quick response. I understand the cites you mentioned. But - you say the articles don't mention Mr. Jarrett directly? He's mentioned on them as the writer. For example: American Vampire (film) - Wikipedia
Any further help you can provide is appreciated. Musicabdmediaentgroup (talk) 09:15, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
We cannot cite other Wikipedia articles per WP:CIRCULAR. And are you being paid for your editing? If you are you must disclose it per WP:PAID. '''[[User:CanonNi]]''' (talkcontribs) 09:17, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
I'm not being paid to edit and nor do I know Mr. Jarrett personally. I mainly do music marketing and I have some involvment in film. After reading about his new release Daylight To Dark, I went to wikipedia to search for the subject. I thought it was increasingly odd and ironic that Mr. Jarrett did not have an article aleady but the films he has written does. Musicabdmediaentgroup (talk) 09:28, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
We don't need citations that just mention him- they must provide significant coverage of him, coverage that goes beyond just telling of the existence of his work, and goes into detail about what makes him important/significant/influential- how he meets WP:NACTOR or more broadly WP:BIO. 331dot (talk) 09:25, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Ok. I will locate the appropriate citations and sources. I appreciate your help. Musicabdmediaentgroup (talk) 09:30, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Musicabdmediaentgroup: it seems to me that you may think that simply doing one's job (be it as an actor, screenwriter, or other) makes one notable; this is not so. We're not doubting that Jarrett has been involved in films, we're saying that's not enough.
Also, there is quite a lot of unreferenced biographical information in this draft – where did all that come from? -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 09:29, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
All biographical information was found on various sites after reading about his latest film. Rotten Tomatoes, News articles, personal imdb page and sites interviewing him about film. There's many sites that reference him, I appear to only be referencing ones that aren't of credible nature on wikipedia. Musicabdmediaentgroup (talk) 09:35, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Musicabdmediaentgroup: I see. Be that as it may, you must cite your sources, it's not enough to say that sources exist somewhere out there. We have especially strict standards for referencing articles on living people (WP:BLP), for privacy etc. reasons. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 09:38, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
To be fair, "backstage" personnel such as screenwriters don't get much press unless they already have a reputation for the quality of their work (for better or for worse). Finding sources for the overwhelming majority of them is akin to finding a bone needle in a haystack. This isn't so much a critique on them as it is a consequence of lead actors and producers/directors getting the lion's share of the credit for a film while everyone else is lucky to be mentioned, let alone discussed. The best sources here are more likely to be industry-specific periodicals. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v threads critiques 17:09, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thanks RashidB123 (talk) 15:12, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@RashidB123: this draft was rejected three months ago, which means that it won't be considered further; therefore, no matter how much you edit it, it won't be reviewed anymore. If you now have evidence of notability which wasn't considered earlier, you may make your case directly to the reviewer who rejected it. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 15:18, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@RashidB123 You will not receive feedback. This draft was rejected way back in February. You might try discussing this with the reviewer who rejected it, and ask them to consider changing their mind. However this appears to be your autobiography. It looks to me as if you may pass WP:NPROF, but not with this draft, which has a peculiar dual reference scheme, and many unreferenced statements.
For a living person we have a high standard of referencing. Every substantive fact you assert, especially one that is susceptible to potential challenge, requires a citation with a reference that is about them, and is independent of them, in multiple secondary sources which are WP:RS, and is significant coverage. Please also see WP:PRIMARY which details the limited permitted usage of primary sources and WP:SELFPUB which has clear limitations on self published sources. Providing sufficient references, ideally one per fact cited, that meet these tough criteria is likely to make this draft a clear acceptance (0.9 probability). Lack of them or an inability to find them is likely to mean that the person is not suitable for inclusion, certainly today.

hey so, I gave evidence (The Medium qna which was stated where he said all these and even linked at the bottom) and it still got rejected? Chonny Jash himself also helped write this, so would there be any like advice? so I could resubmit to fix this? TideCTRL (talk) 20:03, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@TideCTRL I'm having trouble understanding what, with precision, you are asking for. If it helps I cam tell you that all the pictures you have decorated the draft with appear to be copyright violations. 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 20:13, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
And your draft has zero reliable, independent sources so zero chance of being accepted. Theroadislong (talk) 20:28, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Again, still confused. I understand the Steve-O image, but how is the images of Chonny Jash copyrighted if he's endorsing said page? Also how is me referring to an interview with him, and linking that interview not a reliable source? None of this is meant to sound like I'm trying to come off aggressive by the way, just curious on ways I could fix it. TideCTRL (talk) 21:02, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's not clear what you mean by " he's endorsing said page" the copyright of the photographs rests with the photographer, interviews confer zero notability as they are not independent. Theroadislong (talk) 21:06, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Chonny has helped with fact checking and rewording, that's what I mean by him endorsing this page. And how can I prove that the Interview is in fact him? I'm just needing some general like suggestions, as this is my first time with one of these. TideCTRL (talk) 21:19, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@TideCTRL, we don't doubt that the interview is him - the problem is you can't use interviews as evidence of notability. You can use them for basic, uncontroversial facts, like if Jash said in an interview that he was born on February 29 that would be fine. But you will need to find at least three good sources not including any interviews he's done. Because Jash is a living person, the requirements for an article about him are very strict, and every single statement you write needs to be backed up with a reliable source. It doesn't matter if Jash has looked over the article and agrees everything is correct; there needs to be a reference for each statement that verifies it is correct, and those references must be from reliable sources (apart from the basic facts caveat I mentioned).
If you want to have a look at a similar article, may I suggest WikiProject Music's Featured Articles? Featured Articles (best of the best) or Good Articles (a step below Featured) are the ones to use as examples, since they have been very thoroughly vetted by the community. Have a look at David Bowie, for example: the lede (introduction part before the table of contents) has no listed references because they're all in the rest of the article, so skip past that for the moment. Starting at 'Early Life', you'll see that basically every single sentence has a reference after it. (Bowie is sadly dead, but because his death was quite recent the Living Person requirements still apply)
When it comes to the photos, the problem is that they belong to the person who took the photo. So if you took the photo, then you can upload it to Wikimedia Commons and use it in the article. If Jash took the photo and is happy to upload it to Commons, that's fine too. Keep in mind though that when you upload an image to Commons, you are saying that anyone can use it or alter it in any way they like. Most likely the only time it will ever be used is in an article about him on Wikipedia, but it's also possible that it could be used in newspapers, or advertising, or by people who don't like him. This licensing tutorial might be helpful!
Although like you I am quite a new editor, I'd be happy to look at sources you find and try to help you work out whether they're suitable - there's a lot of resources available within Wikipedia to guide us but this is already a wall of text so I won't keep going. Feel free to comment on my talk page if you wish. Good luck and happy editing! StartGrammarTime (talk) 23:58, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Wikipedia has very little interest in what Chonny has endorsed, we base articles on what independent sources say and interviews are not independent so cannot be used to establish notability. Theroadislong (talk) 21:25, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Okay, yes, I get that, all I'm asking is if there's any way I can prove these sources as true and not have the images be labeled as copyrighted TideCTRL (talk) 21:27, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Dear sir, Thank you for your offers of help. The indexing services listed (please note that there are more than 40 of them on the Journal's website) testify to the popularity of this Journal. The Journal's website confirms this. It is visited daily by dozens of readers from 166 countries. Also, according to the WorldCat link, this journal is held in the archives of 159 libraries around the world. Therefore, this topic is of sufficient importance to be included in the Wikipedia. Please note that this journal may have been noted by various entities such as the ISSN International Centre and WorldCat. This is in line with the requirements of the WP:NJournals . The IJSA meets high scientific and ethical standards and is recognised worldwide. Therefore, the page deserves to be added to Wikipedia. Is it possible to move the article to the main space? Thanks a lot for your work.

Yurii Melnyk (talk) 21:06, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Yurii Melnyk: starting with your last question, whether or not this draft could be published, it shouldn't be you moving it into the main article space, given the conflict of interest (COI) which you have disclosed on your user page (and thank you for doing so).
Most of the factors you list, such as how many libraries hold this journal or how many countries visitors to your website come from, are not criteria in our WP:NJOURNALS or WP:GNG notability guidelines. The indexing services one could be, but not quite the way you put it across: it isn't the number of indices that matters, but rather their quality; 40 non-selective ones don't establish notability, whereas a single selective one may do.
That said, this is all somewhat academic (no pun), as the draft has been rejected, which usually means the end of the road. If evidence of notability is now available which wasn't considered earlier, you may approach the rejecting reviewer directly to appeal the rejection, but if you do, I suggest you build your case solely on policy-based arguments referring to NJOURNALS, rather than on irrelevant metrics or subjective arguments such as "deserves to be added to Wikipedia". -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:58, 28 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
