I have submitted my first original wiki page and received the notice that it may take two months to receive feedback. Then a person, Robert McClenon, sent me a message telling me to correct the titles in the proper formatting, which I have done. Do I now need to resubmit the article, or is it still in the queue? Thank you for your help. Dianahendricks (talk) 03:17, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

08:51:26, 13 May 2019 review of draft by Paul ZawilenskyEdit

Hi, I need help in understanding why exactly my draft for the article about the Dubblestandart band, has been rejected and what I can do to solve the issue. The article is in many parts based on the existing article about the Dubblestandart Band on the German version of Wikipedia. and has just been updated with new content. The Dubblestandart Band has a wide array of collaboroations with international known artists from the Reggae Scene as well as a huge back catalog and is signed for more than 17 years to the well known German label Echo Beach. There are countless mentiones in online and printed magazines for the last 20 years!

Please let me know, what exactly the issue is about, so I can update...

Many thanx

Hi Tollywoodcorns. Movie posters and other images used in marketing and promoting the film are copyrighted, so they may not be added to drafts. If the draft is accepted and published as an article, then a copyrighted image may be added to the article provided all ten of the criteria for use of non-free content are met. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:22, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

As there is a wikipedia page for Korean Englishman, there are two people who host this youtube channel who are Josh Carrott and Ollie John Kendal. As there already is a page created for Josh Carrott, I am making a page for Ollie John Kendal however it got declined and it saying to create a page like 'Smosh' or 'TwoSet Violin'. I want a page for Kendal as Carrott already has one. Asfabutt2001 (talk) 11:46, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Asfabutt2001. I agree with the reviewers that Josh Carrot and Ollie John Kendal are notable as a duo, but not notable individually. See The Briscoe Brothers and Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo for good examples of articles about duos in entertainment. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:42, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

I was told to include inline page citations for my page--I have done so, citing every claim with factual evidence from a third party source. Some sentences are personal/ biographical in nature and for reason that can not be cited, but it would be unusual to omit this information in a biographical article.

22:33:56, 13 May 2019 review of submission by DtwinlauserEdit

Respectfully, I just wanted to explain that I had thought that Joseph Lee's lead roles in the TV and film projects "The Miracle We Met" and "Searching," both of which have their own Wiki pages with Joseph listed in the primary cast, would be enough for establishing his notability. Am I correct in understanding that, as an actor and/or fine art artist, more noteworthy work and TV or film credits will be required? And that this page does not qualify as a stub (see link to Sean O'Bryan's page in the cast list of "Searching")?

Would adding the "notability|biographies" tag (with the appropriate brackets) on the draft article alert other writers that might be able to assist in making the article better over time?

Your advice is appreciated as I am still relatively new to this community and working my way through your tutorials.

Thank you! Dtwinlauser (talk) 22:33, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Dtwinlauser. With regard to WP:ENTERTAINER, the problem is that The Hollywood Reporter and Korea Times don't mention Lee at all, and Movie Insider mentions him only in the cast list. With regard to WP:CREATIVE, only two independent sources are cited, and they're both about the same mural. Perhaps you can find better sources that talk about his work as an actor more deeply and as an artist more broadly, but it looks like it is WP:TOOSOON, that as you say, "more noteworthy work and TV or film credits will be required".
Stubs are just short articles, they are supposed to meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines just like any other article. Drafts that need other types of cleanup may be accepted and tagged, but if it would have to be tagged for notability it won't be accepted in the first place. A notability tag is basically the first step on the road to deletion, and it would be perverse to accept a draft only to delete it. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:41, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

23:00:48, 13 May 2019 review of submission by Amgray19Edit

This is the third time I'm requesting a re-review. I worked for a long time to make edits as suggested by those who rejected the article before, down to a "T" of what they suggested. The reasons for rejecting are subjective and seem to be a moving target. What is notable to one person is not necessarily to another, and it sure seems that Wikipedia allows way more egregious items than the page I am requesting, which has an article about one of the exams offered, which wouldn't exist without this organization. I've cited every source in a professional journal, book, or otherwise I can find, as requested. Thank you for your consideration. Amgray19 (talk) 23:00, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

I am not associated with Sherpa CRM and was just trying to publish my first article and thought quoting the few things I could find about the company, including its officers explaining their vision was comparable to some other larger company pages, such as Apple, which I now realize I conflated with Steve Jobs personal page which describes his vision for Apple. I believe I have removed the offending sections and I would like to continue working on this entry. It's not meant to be promotional, only informational about a less well-known company.

As this is my first page, simply putting WP:Partial down helps me none. Since I was making this page to fix an issue with a link in another page, while trying to not cut away the page it went to. I do not see why it is called a partial when it covered the issue in question.

Dragon0562 (talk) 10:39, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Dragon0562. Thanks for trying to fix an inappropriate link. The reviewer is saying that creating a disambiguation page to fix it goes against the guidelines explained at WP:PARTIAL, that it's the wrong fix. If an article links to Decon when the intended meaning is Decontamination, then the link should probably be changed to the latter, or perhaps be piped as [[Decontamination|Decon]]. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:29, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Wp4321. The draft cites press releases, trade journals, and a newspaper article in which an executive says a few words about the company.

Hi Jessie Trapp. Even mentioning the company on Wikipedia is likely to be seen as promotional, especially when the draft cites zero independent, reliable, secondary sources containing significant coverage of the company.

20:30:30, 15 May 2019 review of draft by AsherdbwisemanEdit

So this was rejected because I copied and pasted the episode description from Channel 4s website? Would erasing that help? What's that stuff about reliable sources? it really is a TV show that airs on Channel 4.

Asherdbwiseman (talk) 20:30, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Asherdbwiseman. Just because something exists does not mean it is a suitable subject for an encyclopedia article. To demonstrate notability (suitability for inclusion), multiple, independent, reliable sources are needed that contain significant information about the topic. The channel's website (as well as the show's, the producer's, the star's, etc.) may be reliable, but are not independent - they have a vested interest in promoting the show. Reliable and independent sources would be something like reviews in The Guardian or The Times, or a scholarly book that contains a page or two about the show. --Worldbruce (talk) 18:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

What changes would you advise making? This article is not intended as "advertisement", simply an interesting record for an individual already referenced on two Wikipedia pages ('Greatest Britons' & 'Claire Goose'). Louisgm (talk) 13:26, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Louisgm. Many people are mentioned somewhere in Wikipedia, but are not suitable subjects for stand alone encyclopedia articles, so that's not a good reason to create this draft. I advise moving on to a different topic (we have nearly 6 million to choose from). If you pursue this one, look for more sources like the Evening Standard article, ones that go into some depth about Goose with a minimum of him talking about himself. Try scholarly books, academic journals, The Times, The Financial Times, the BBC, The New York Times, and the like. Better sources can sometimes help remedy tone problems, although your own writing experience - academic, journalistic, public relations, etc. - also plays a role. --Worldbruce (talk) 18:43, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

I made another attempt at editing this page, removing what might be considered buzzwords. I'd appreciate it if this can be reviewed again and considered. I disagree with the notability reasoning for rejecting the page, as they are well-known in their industry and many similar companies have pages on Wikipedia.

Paul.jonah.paul (talk) 23:00, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Paul.jonah.paul. The draft treats Shift4 Payments as if it's an extension of Harbortouch. Wikipedia favors large, comprehensive articles, which suggests it would be best to cover Shift4 Payments and Harbortouch in a single article, much as the British Oliver Typewriter Company is covered within Oliver Typewriter Company. In that case Draft:Shift4 Payments should be abandoned, and changes should be made (or, if you have a conflict of interest, proposed) to Harbortouch.

00:47:20, 17 May 2019 review of draft by THX1136Edit

I recently had an article reviewed which was declined for unacceptable sources by Wiki standards. I understand why one of my sources was not acceptable per the guidelines mentioned by the reviewer. There was a second source which I felt met the criteria along with a third source that was identified as a good source. I mentioned this to the reviewer who graciously gave things a second look. The reviewer thought the source in question was "self published" which disqualifies it, in a manner of speaking. I contend that the assumption the reviewer made was in error. Here is a brief description why I believe that.

The site that the article is on and the article itself are by 2 different and unrelated individuals. The site (Arf! Arf! Records) is administered by Aram Heller; the "info" article included on that site was written by Tom Tourville. Tourville is an author who writes about the music scene of the 60s in IA and MN and is not connected to the Arf! Arf! site nor the subject of my article in any direct manner. In short, I believe Heller "reposted/reprinted" Tourville's article on the Arf! Arf! site. To me that puts the article in the same category as an article included in a magazine or newspaper written as an op-ed or by a staff writer/reporter. I was wondering how I could get a second opinion on the source (Arf! Arf!)? If the same conclusion is made then I will continue to work to improve the sourcing of the article itself. Thank you for you consideration in this matter. THX1136 (talk) 00:47, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi THX1136. Can you figure out where Heller reprinted Tourville's article from? I suspect he reprinted it from the liner notes of the two parts of Arf! Arf!'s The IGL rock story - that Tourville was being paid to write something that would help sell a collection of IGL songs. The Johnston, Iowa, public library has the CDs. Can you borrow them through your local library or make a road trip to examine them?
Of greater concern to me is that the draft cites discogs and, both of which are on the WP:NOTRSMUSIC list. --Worldbruce (talk) 17:05, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

First of all I am the creator of the Bukura Somo article. Secondly, I was born and raised in Dawa Zone in which the sonal administration wasn't exist at that time. The whole region was called Sidamo Province. Therefore, I am writing about something I know at first hand knowledge of it. I believe the reviewer of my article has no current events in Ethiopia at all and Somali regional state in particular. I was there at the celebration Dawa Zone on March 22, 2016. I also, gave you a reference regarding information contained in Liban Zone,in Somali state. Someone has posted inaccurate information. Lahey, Qadaduma, Moyale, are no longer in Liban Zone, but Dawa Zone.

Pls note that what we need are multiple (at least 3) independent (secondary source), reliable sources such as from major newspapers directly talk about the subject in depth and in length for verification and not personal account the editor knowledge of the subject. (see the comment on the grey panel on top of the draft). Hope this help and btw the sources can be in any languages.. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 14:21, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for the review. I don't know why the article is contrary to the purposes of Wikipedia. It is written impartially, uses a number of reliable sources (including academic articles, museums, and musical archives) and links to a number of other notable composers and poets. As an academic myself, I've been very careful to avoid including any bias. Marthanewson (talk) 09:16, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

@Mlawsn: - we have plenty of articles both on the formation of modern law as well as Roman law. If you have content then please add it to one of these - if and only if you have suitable sourcing for your content. Nosebagbear (talk) 23:46, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

I hope that the review of this article is accepted by the community for these reasons: The article was corrected into a more neutral format. Any sales 'speak' was removed. Online and publicly available sources are referenced to back up key items. There are already references in Wikipedia to Pix4Dmapper but there is no Pix4Dmapper article. There are articles in Wikipedia for similar products (PhotoModeler, RealityCapture, Leica Photogrammetry Suite) and they were used as templates for the Pix4Dmapper article. Pix4Dmapper has been around for many years, is one of the first softwares for photogrammetry and is used in almost every country in the world.

Shieru2411 (talk) 13:39, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Hey Shieru2411. The article you created has been nominated for deletion as it includes essentially no content, and no indication why the subject should qualify for an article on Wikipedia. You may wish to review our notability criteria for biographies, and if the individual has been the subject of sustained in-depth coverage in reliable published sources (usually things like books, magazines and newspapers, and excluding routine directory entries, press releases, and official website), then you should include that content in the draft and submit it for review.

Request on 03:17:55, 18 May 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by DbexpertEdit

I recently submitted "". Before I submitted this article, I read carefully the various online documents that describe the submission process for Wikipedia.

The article submission was rejected. I can accept that in itself. The reviewer (Zanhe) left the reason "This topic is not sufficiently notable for inclusion in Wikipedia.". Again, I can accept that in itself, although I was hoping that this article would overcome the threshold. However, the reviewer left the comment "Article was previously deleted as not notable, see "".

Does this mean that the reviewer rejected this article because a different article with the same name but different content was rejected in 2010?The article that I submitted is completely different from the article that was rejected in 2010. There is no connection between the two articles except for the fact that they share the same name and refer to the same software.

If the reviewer actually made their decision based on the content of the article that I submitted rather than what happened to the other article in 2010, then I can accept that. However, from the comment that the reviewer left, it seems that this may not be the case.

14:40:22, 18 May 2019 review of draft by Innovative UsernameEdit

Hi there, I was wondering if I could have some help setting up the infobox and in particular getting PAL's logo in it. I've never filled out the fair use rationale before and don't totally understand it. I think it's super important to have the logo and a short infobox.

Innovative Username (talk) 14:40, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Innovative Username Greetings, you can use Template:Infobox organization. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 15:01, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your response. Do you happen to understand how to do the fair use rationale thing? I've now seen how to do the infobox - quite easy in visual mode even if it is a bit slower- better for me as a newbie, haha. But the fair use rationale seems really confusing based on the documentation online and in the help pages. Thanks. Innovative Username (talk) 15:08, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@Innovative Username and Nick Moyes: Hi Nick Since you are expert in image uploaded /fair use knowledge, would appreciate if you would lend a had to help Innovative User. Thank in advance. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 15:43, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@CASSIOPEIA and Innovative Username: Oh, I wish I was an expert - you flatter me. In fact, I've never needed to use the fair use rationale, either, with anything I've uploaded. But it should be straight forward for a logo for an organisation about which we have an article. First off, however, I can find nothing in Wikipedia:Non-free content, Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline or Wikipedia:Use rationale examples to suggest that a non-free image can't be added to a draft article. Yet, somehow such an image does nothing to demonstrate notability, so I might have expected these pages to state that a NFU-image is only suitable for use on an article once it is in mainspace. I presume the image is this one? (I've not been to the official website as I receive security warnings about both the English and Arabic versions, so I'm not going there, even thoughI think it's just the lack of an https: connection.) I think the example used at the top of Wikipedia:Use rationale examples seems pretty close to what you'd need, and I would reduce the file size to make it only just suitable for use on-screen on Wikipedia within an infobox. To help you, you can insert the {{Non-free use rationale logo}} template into the summary section of the image, as explained in that template's documentation (or you can simply copy and paste in the text from the section entitled 'Syntax'.) I think you would also add the {{Non-free logo}} template to the image description section so as to warn others not to use it elsewhere - again, its application is described in the documentation on that template's page.
Personally, I wouldn't worry about the logo right now. I'd focus much more on making your draft article sound more like a short, succinct encyclopaedia article than the long, overly-detailed and heavily promotional draft that it is at present. To do that, I would pare back all the trivia (e.g. the Key staff section), trying just to keep information which only explains what the organisation does, citing sources that show the world at large has taken note of it (and there's quite a bit of coverage in Spanish media, I notice) and cite only sources that talk about the organisation, instead of repeatedly citing content written by that organisation. Although I can only read the abstract, I would have thought this research paper might have help to demonstrate the organisation's notability had it not been written in such an essay-like and rather long-winded manner. I'm sorry I can't offer much more advice. Nick Moyes (talk) 21:24, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@Innovative Username and Nick Moyes: Hi Nick, thank you so much for taking the time and effort to answer the question and provide the advice. To note, my understanding is that if content or images or file which the non copyright free and if it is uploaded to Wikipedia irregardless in the draft space or main space, it is still considered a violation of copyright infringement (COPYVIO). I often tag draft page which the the content is COPYVIO and the article got deleted for such violation. Cheers and thanks again. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 08:23, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello, I am Houston, TX. I have edited my article and added further information on Dr. Manzar Kazmi. Please let me know what I need to do to initiate Dr. Kazmi on Wikepedia. He is the author of several books and articles. Thank you for your guidance and support. Waqif 16:37, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi S.H.Waqif. Having written several books and articles is insufficient reason for there to be an encyclopedia article about him. The draft cites a single source, which is not enought to show that he is notable as a writer or notable as an academic. Furthermore, Wikipedia is not the place for uncritical biographies written to praise or honour the subject. You may wish to consider alternative outlets with different inclusion criteria. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:33, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Gedgmoss. I've left a belated welcome basket of links on your talk page. Other links you may find useful are: Wikipedia:WikiProject Schools/Article guidelines and Wikipedia:Writing better articles. Articles for Creation is an iterative process. Drafts are often declined multiple times on the road to eventual acceptance. Use the time between reviews to improve the draft as much as you can by following the reviewer's advice and the applicable policies and guidelines. Spending time editing other articles can also pay off by building your Wikipedia skills. See Wikipedia:Community portal if you aren't sure where to start. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:52, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

19:40:19, 18 May 2019 review of submission by RobeatlasEdit

This article was rejected by User:AngusWOOF for the following reason

I created it because it struck me as very weird that wikipedia didn't have an article on someone who was a major character in the most popular british drama of the year (Line of Duty). I'm not really au fait with the exact ins and out of the wikpedia notability requirements, so it certainly might have been the right choice but I would like to ask for clarification of the reasoning here. WP:ENT states that someone is notable if they "Have had significant roles in multiple notable films, television shows, stage performances, or other productions". Now this is not especially clearly worded, but I took it as Multiple meaning 2 and that notability was meant in the wikipedia sense (that is, is eligible for a wikipedia article). If so, it comes down to what significant roles means, because as well as Line of Duty, Sandall was a main cast member in Love, Lies and Records, a drama series that is obviously notable. Broken (where she was a supporting actor) and Moving On (main character but one episode of an anthology series) seem more marginal. Robeatlas (talk) 19:40, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

i am wondering why Quick Tv Africa was deleted. Its one of Africa's fastest growing media house and the only one promoting Africa's art and culture globally I want that article restored

Hi Mcvicworld. The most recent version of the article wasn't deleted, it was moved from article space to Draft:Quick Tv Africa because it cites no reliable, independent sources. That's the same reason an earlier version of the article was deleted, see the linked discussion. None of the reasons you've given above ("fastest growing", "only one", and you "want that article restored") are reasons for Wikipedia to have an encyclopedia article on the subject.
You wrote "Victor Vote" on your user page. If you were trying to communicate that you are the founder of Quick Tv Africa, then you have a conflict of interest when writing about the topic, and should plainly declare that on your user page. Editing with a conflict of interest is a supremely bad idea, and is strongly discouraged. See WP:BFAQ#COMPANY for more information. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:26, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

16:48:36, 19 May 2019 review of draft by Jussi KarlgrenEdit


hullo reviewers,

i have been asked by some colleagues to improve this page draft which was declined earlier. i am not entirely comfortable doing so, since i am partially involved with the company itself and am clearly COI-ed, but the person who would be best suited to do so has recently left their position at the institution which understands the sorts of things we work with (and i would not want anyone on the staff of the company itself editing a text about their employer). i did fix some things that were clearly a bit less wikipedialike in style, added some further references, and clarified that some of the references indeed are third-party references and indepedent (which was not entirely obvious). i would rather not work more on the text without some guidance.

it appears the draft was declined by a wikipedian who now has been permanently blocked from editing, and thus i cannot easily ask them to peek at the page again. does the queue move forward even without the original reviewer? Jussi Karlgren (talk) 16:48, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Jussi Karlgren (talk) 16:48, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
