Tuesdaymorning20 (talk) 00:05, 18 October 2020 (UTC)


Sophie Santos is an American comedian and writer. There are notable references including on Amazon Publishing's site. I am a non biased individual.

Amazon is not an acceptable source under any circumstance, and a author's publisher is not a reliable secondary source. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Takes a strong man to deny... 00:30, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi! As I can see Sahnil Bhatnagar has more than a million followers as well as he is into acting. How can I get his page on wikipedia? could you please help me because his all other co-actors have their own wikipedia page and he deserves to be here. Please guide me.

I could find 7 news articles about him, I was able to manage to find his IMDB links. Please help! Thank you! Regards Aamira

Hi Zooden, I guess you are not from India but in India, Sahnil videos are very viral and he s having a good amount of fan following. I also got to know about him through my younger brother who is a big fan of him and then I searched about him and found his videos very cool. He is an actor I have started watching his show MTV Warrior high on youtube and he is doing great. I see all his co-actors having their wikipedia. I suppose you should give him a chance and keep him on wikipedia for sometime to see. My brother told me that on his live he mentioned that he is going to some web series soon. Anyways it would be great if you go through all of his videos,work and pictures. I saw a fan making a permanent Tattoo of his name that means he is notable. Because if someone is making permanent tattoo that means he is a notable person. Please have a look at these videos which i just found on his instagram handle https://www.instagram.com/p/B5pmRisAY5R/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BsdZnQLnTVj/ https://www.instagram.com/p/B1oMmP9AoaZ/ https://www.instagram.com/p/B_89uLhgoY4/ Wow! We done even need proof. These pictures and videos says it all. This guy deserves. Please let me know your advice. Generally I guess editors focus on news articles but videos and pictures are the best proof. Thank you for your time! Just sharing my feelings. Oone his profile is on wikipedia. I'll message him on instagram. I hope he replies. Best Regards Aamira HR Consultant

Aamirabusy (talk) 02:14, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

@Aamirabusy: I'm afraid that you have a common misconception about what Wikipedia contains. Wikipedia does not contain profiles, not a single one. Wikipedia has encyclopedic articles about topics that satisfy Wikipedia's special definition of notability, in this case a noteable person. Please also be aware that nobody "owns" a Wikipedia article in the sence they can say what's on there. Intagram and other social networks are commonly regarded as an unreliable source. The linked draft was deleted today morning. If you want to get it back, please ask at WP:REFUND. Victor Schmidt (talk) 06:43, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
Aamirabusy, the article you have re-created was the same one that the sockpuppets have persistently added and resulted in the draft space being create protected. See Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Draft:Sahnil Bhatnagar. AngusW🐶🐶F (barksniff) 16:44, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
Aamirabusy, why are you contacting Sahnil? This reeks of conflict of interest and paid editing. AngusW🐶🐶F (barksniff) 16:45, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

I am not paid to edit anything, I am just doing this for my younger brother because he admires him a lot. As I had mentioned above that I got to know about this through my brother. Sahnil doesn't even know me and I had said I will message Sahnil, I HOPE HE REPLIES , I wanted Sahnil to reply me if I am able to create his wikipedia because this is the only way my younger brother can talk with him. I am working as a HR Managar and I am earning good. I dont want this money Sir. You are taking me in a wrong way. I am a 28 years working lady. Since, This s all messed up here I just hope Sahnil doesn't gets to know about this. I still request you guys to reconsider his article. God bless you! Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aamirabusy (talkcontribs) 17:01, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Aamirabusy, you need to rewrite the article from scratch, not use the old ones that keep getting resubmitted and therefore deleted. Do not source IMDb. That is user-generated and not a reliable source. As I discussed in the MFD, he is borderline not notable. He only has one recurring role in that Warriors show. Wikipedia requires entertainers have multiple significant roles in major productions. This role is not discussed in detail in any newspaper articles presented so far. Elovator Pitch is not a major role, but a minor/guest role as a participant. Other than that, he had a brief event fame for dating a woman in Brazil over Likee. AngusW🐶🐶F (barksniff) 17:22, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
 AngusW🐶🐶 OK I will rewrite everything. Please open this draft so that I can rewrite again and I will just post relevant articles. Thanks for understanding! I will try again . MTV Elovator Pitch I have seen it was a great show and he was one charm in that show, as well as MTV Warrior high I am watching, even you can watch to see him. He is doing great there too. Talking about his LIKEE experience well yes I saw his videos and he is quite famous in India and Brazil. Now will you please allow me to make a new article from scrath here? Should It be a stub article only na? Because it will be a short article about him.

Please guide me! Best Regards Aamira

I reframed everything. please make the desired changes. Draft:Sahnil_Bhatnagar_(Actor) Thank you for your suppot. It means a lot, finally my younger brother will be happy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aamirabusy (talkcontribs) 21:58, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

I have created this page for Aryan Rao pippal and everything on this page is real and genuine, I 100% believe that if this page go live ,it will get the very good amount of attention because of the popularity of Aryan Rao Pippal in hong kong and India, so it is a humble request from the fans of Aryan Rao Pippal to allow this page.

(talk) 16:33, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Rbshadow You don't ask a question, but your draft was rejected, meaning it will not be considered further. This is because it is a blatant promotional piece for the colleges, telling about its offerings. Wikipedia articles must do more, they must summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about the college, showing how it meets the special Wikipedia definition of a notable organization. 331dot (talk) 20:30, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Aminuddinshroff (talk) 18:07, 18 October 2020 (UTC)


Moin-ud-din is my late father and notable personality. Unfortunately, there are no references available online than what I have mentioned in the article. Esmayeel Shroff is his brother and I had created his article as well which had references. You may check the films tagged under his name has his name on it. Any help in getting this page/article published would be helpful. It is currently sitting in my sandbox.

It would appear that, if that is the case, that your father would not merit a Wikipedia article at this time. If independent reliable sources write about his work, he might in the future. 331dot (talk) 20:33, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello! I have tried several times submitting my draft AfC, however the 'submission-received' box has not appeared at the bottom of the page. I believe that I have authored the article correctly with very notable sources, but it does not seem to be pending review. I just want to confirm it is on the waitlist to be reviewed.

Thank you for your time! Recyclingright (talk) 01:33, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

09:17:57, 19 October 2020 review of draft by Henry CuevasEdit


I would like to request support regarding an article that I wrote. The article is about a medical device company that develops and manufactures mesh nebulizers. I added references to describe events related to the company and information from websites and publications; however, the article has been rejected twice because references from news outlets and other websites are not considered valid.

I will very much appreciate some guidance on how to overcome this issue, as I have noticed that other articles contain the same type of references, but have been successfully published.

Thank you for your support.

Henry Cuevas (talk) 09:17, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Henry Cuevas Note that other similar articles existing is not a reason for yours to exist, see other stuff exists. As this is a volunteer project where people do what they can when they can, it is possible to get inappropriate articles by us. We can only address what we know about. Standards also change over time, so that what was once acceptable is no longer. If you'd care to point out some of these other articles, we can address them; we could use the help.
Regarding your draft, it is sourced to nothing but press releases or routine information. That does not establish notability as defined by Wikipedia, for companies that is defined at WP:ORG. A Wikipedia article needs to summarize significant coverage found in independent reliable sources that have chosen on their own to write about the subject. That does not include press releases(which are not independent), announcements of routine business transactions, or brief mentions(such as basic company information). Please see Your First Article for more information.
If you work for or are otherwise associated with this company, please review conflict of interest and paid editing for information on disclosures you could be required to make. 331dot (talk) 09:29, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Captilia (talk) 12:07, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

12:07:50, 19 October 2020 review of submission by Captilia

Hello I'm have hard times to publish any article .. Kindly advise

@Captilia: I assume this referes to User:Captilia/sandbox. I have so far seen the following problems:
  • The page reads like an advertisement, but Wikipedia does not host advertisements. It contains peacock terms. If I were to grab a red pen and mark everything that falls under this pint, there is not much left.
  • The page makes excessive use of <big>-Tags. Normally, you shouldn't need to use them at all.
  • The page makes excessive use of bold text. use it sparingly.
  • The page currently fails WP:V. If I were to determine where the information in the draft comes from ,I would need to grab google myself.
  • In conjunction with the previous point, the draft also fails to meet WP:NCORP or WP:GNG.
  • The draft uses external links in the article body. this is not allowed. Plain external links are only allowed in a specific section, usally called "External links".
  • Upon a routine investigation, I also determined that a substancial amount of text is identical to the organisation website. Please never do that. Even if we could get the legal aspects resolved, 99% of the texts not written for Wikipedia is also unsiutable for Wikipedia (see the first point).
For future attempts, try to follow these steps:
  • First, review our guideline on notability, our policy on Verifiability, and our general notability guideline (GNG). Consider whether your subject clearly meets the standards listed there. Also, check if the topic is already covered, perhaps under a different spelling or in a section of an article about a wider topic. You will waste a lot of time, if you create a new article, and then find that the encyclopedia already has an article about that.
  • Second, read how to create Your First Article and referencing for beginners and again consider if you want to go ahead.
  • Third, If you have any connection or affiliation with the subject, disclose it in accordance with our guideline on Conflict of interest. If you have been or expect to be paid for making edits, or are making them as part of your job, disclose this according to the strict rules of the Paid-contribution disclosure. This is absolutely required; omitting it can result in you being blocked from further editing.
  • Fourth, gather sources. You want independent, professionally published, reliable sources with each discussing the subject in some detail. If you can't find several such sources, stop; an article will not be created! Sources do NOT need to be online, or in English, although it is helpful if at least some are. The "independent" part is vital. Wikipedia does not consider as independent sources such as press releases, or news stories based on press releases, or anything published by the subject itself or an affiliate of the subject. Strictly local coverage is also not preferred. Regional or national newspapers or magazines, books published by mainstream publishers (not self-published), or scholarly journals are usually good. So are online equivalents of these. (Additional sources may verify particular statements but not discuss the subject in detail. But those significant detailed sources are needed first.)
  • Fifth, use the article wizard to create a draft under the articles for creation project. This is always a good idea for an inexperienced editor, but in the case of an editor with a conflict of interest it is essential.
  • Sixth, use the sources gathered before (and other sources you may find along the way) to write the article. Cite all significant statements to sources. Do not express opinions or judgements, unless they are explicitly attributed to named people or entities, preferably in a direct quotation, and cited to a source. Do not use puffery or marketing-speak. Provide page numbers, dates, authors and titles for sources to the extent these are available. A title is always needed. Submit the draft when you think it is ready for review. Be prepared to wait a while for a review (several weeks or more).
  • Seventh, when (well perhaps if) your draft is declined, pay attention to the comments of the reviewer, and correct the draft and resubmit it. During this whole process, if you face any unresolvable editing hurdles, or cannot comprehend any editing issue, feel free to post a request at the Teahouse or the help desk and ask the regulars. Repeat this until the draft passes review.

Congratulations, you have now created a valid Wikipedia article. Victor Schmidt (talk) 13:22, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello! I am requesting help for my draft "Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine". This Wikipedia page is for an emergency medicine journal. It is affiliated with another journal, Western Journal of Emergency Medicine (WestJEM), which has its own published Wikipedia page. I followed a similar format to that of WestJEM's and other medical journals, but the draft has not been accepted. What else can I add/change to the draft.

Hi Snowycats! Thank you for your feedback! I believe I have addressed the previous advice by adding the references under "Abstracting and Indexing". Those references are published journals and journal databases in which Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine journal is included.

00:43:42, 20 October 2020 review of submission by FutureEnterprisesEdit

I am trying to find the balance between the suggestion to not brag too much or make it sound like an advertisement, with also showing Davey Miller's importance to the surfing world. I wonder if someone familiar with the surfing world of the 80s and 90s might be found to review it and help me word it to match what would fit Wikipedia? It is my first time. Many of Davey Miller's contemporaries that he has actually ranked higher than and had shorter surfing careers have Wikipedia pages. He is sort of a top quarterback that made some amazing records that those in football world admire and respect, but he didn't ever win the superbowl. He is respected by the surfers in that he was after "some good surf" more than being the highest champion. Many of the surfers who tried some of the stunts he has done died, etc. I am waiting for the archives of the surfing magazines to get back to me. He was in the cover and had articles about him at least seven times that he remembers. I could show the covers, they are on his Facebook and Instagra, but we want to verify we have the rights to share them in the Wiki Commons system. When Davey Miller walks on a beach in California and Hawaii people still come up to praise him and tell him how amazing he is, so he is well known and has some "minor fame". His art is starting to become "a thing" in the art world, so I and many others think he is fitting of a Wikipedia article. Maybe we have to wait until the archives of the surfing magazines return our emails (if they have anyone employed to do that). Help and guidance and ideas on how to include or use the magazine covers with possible "rights" issues would be appreciated. If those covers would help establish he is worthy of a Wikipedia article. I see Alex Frey and other people I know have one and Davey Miller is just as famous, if not more. FutureEnterprises (talk) 00:43, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

We are not interested in a rerun of the Seigenthaler incident. Literally none of the claims your draft makes is cited to a credible secondary source, and it's due to that that your draft is getting declined. The citation requirement is not optional. The draft itself also reads like it's promoting him, which is not acceptable. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Takes a strong man to deny... 00:50, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Greetings, I need help just finishing this article up. The previous Article was created by another user and it was declined by the reviewer. I have edited the existing draft with some more notable references Including those of Lootcase, TVF Tripling, ad films, movie details, personal life[1]. The comment by the first Wikipedia reviewer was based on the first submitted draft by the other user. Yesterday when I submitted the article again, it got declined.

14:51:57, 20 October 2020 review of draft by DanishomEdit


Hi,

I am new to Wikipedia. I created an article about Prof. Shabtay Dikstein, a globally recognized scientist, innovator, scientific author, founder of the Unit of Cell Pharmacology at the Hebrew University Hadassah medical school, founder of international committees and magazines, with multiple medical drugs on the market, and on and on.

When I submitted the draft (I think; working with Wiki is quite unintuitive :( ), I received a bunch of comments (not from a reviewer) on unverifiable sources, and the fact that he was still alive, and so on. I tried to understand how can I verify biographical events of his childhood in Fascist, then Communist Hungary, but received no reply.

The 90 year old Prof. is now suffering from cancer and I don't know how much longer he will live. I was hoping to present to him the Wiki article before he is gone, but I don't know what to do now. I was so frustrated by the process that I abandoned it for many months. Now, that the prof is somewhat recovered from the cancer therapy, I hope that I can complete the process.

Please help me out Thank you Dani Danishom (talk) 14:51, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

We are not interested in a rerun of the Seigenthaler incident. I sympathise, but even if he were to perish at this very moment you would still be obligated to have a credible secondary source for every single claim the article makes, as our biographical requirements apply to recent decedants as well. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Takes a strong man to deny... 15:01, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

I added references, removed them when it was said that it was too commercial. I just want to add a piece of information about this software developer that is well known in the BIM industry and deserves to be part of the free encyclopedia, not ot mention that it is the most successful software developer in Italy in the AEC sector.

Hi :Snowycats, thanks for prompt reply. I don't know whether you are rerferring to my very last edit, but if you read the whole article, as I had submitted it at the beginning, you will notice a huge difference. Hence my request for advice and my suggestion of comparison with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphisoft What does sound like an advertisement? I described the field of interest, I gave info on the company's history...what kind of information am I supposed to supply? I have applied further modifications and added more reference to show that this company deserves to be part of Wikipedia. The issue I have now is that I don't know where to submit it again. Is it something I can still do? Thanks for your help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lewjon (talkcontribs) 13:40, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

I received a rejection of "Michal Alberstein" and revised according to the general comments - not enough citations and not a neutral tone. I changed the tone and structure and added numerous citations (over 41 citations from journals and websites), and it was rejected again with the same general comments. I would be grateful for more specific advice on how to fit the text to Wikipedia. Many thanks, Nofit Amir


Amirnofit (talk) 11:02, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Of those 41 citations, which three speak about Michal Alberstein, her life, her career, etc. in great detail? In order for an article subject to be considered notable by the Wikipedia community, we require that an article subject receive significant coverage in multiple reliable secondary sources that are independent of the subject. This means that for any article subject, we should expect to find multiple sources that are interested enough in Alberstein to have written detailed content about her personally, with little to no participation by her (i.e. not an interview, not a press release, not content written by her or by those close to her.)

We are not interested in a rerun of the Seigenthaler incident. You have no sources, and none of the external links in the article can be used as sources. Have newspapers, news magazines, and/or industrial journals written about him in some depth? —A little blue Bori v^_^v Takes a strong man to deny... 16:35, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
Sudhindra Athreya, since you are obviously related to this kid, you may lack the objectivity required to edit in this subject area, as you have a clear conflict of interest. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. It is not a social network site, nor is it a place to build monuments for people or pedestalise people. We care about notable people, and notability is established when you can demonstrate that multiple reliable independent sources have written about the subject in depth, without any provocation or participation from the subject or their relatives i.e. no interviews or press releases. I'm sure you can understand that winning "first place in cute participants" in a "fancy dress competition" would not make someone deserving of an encyclopedia article, nor would playing with LEGOs or singing songs and drawing. These all sound like run-of-the-mill activities for children. If you can demonstrate that the subject meets our general notability guideline, then we can re-address this. Until then, you are strongly discouraged from editing about this person, as your conflict of interest presents a significant ethical concern. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 14:55, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Dear Reviewer, I made significant changes and resubmitted my draft https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Guo_Shiyou. I was told that it would take 3 months for the second review. Is there a way to get feedback a little sooner? The first review pointed out that I needed reliable sources. I added several sources such as Baidu which is China's Wikipedia. I also added links to people who reviewed the works of the historian I wrote about. All the reviewers I mentioned are Chinese academics who have a solid reputation. All the works are published in reputable journals by reputable publishers. Mr. Guo's works have not yet been translated into English but he has readers in American universities and institutions on China studies. I modeled my draft on a wikipedia article on Mr. Guo's fellow historian in China https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zi_Zhongyun. Any advice to improve my draft is appreciated.

Thank you for providing an avenue for the AfC help desk. I have recently submitted Draft:Air_Squared for review and have received a "reads more like an advertisement than an entry in an encyclopedia" rejection. While I understand this is not the place to argue what should or should not be removed before resubmission, I am concerned that there were no details provided in the rejection. Specifically, apart from an external link to Air Squared's website in the Infobox and a link to Air Squared's Youtube channel, 26 of the 27 references meet Wikipedia's range of independent, reliable, published sources. If the concern in notability, other MOXIE partners including Ceramatec, Inc are represented on Wikipedia and I would argue that the commercial space industry should be represented on Wikipedia.

May I ask if the best course of action would be to edit the draft to make it read more like an encyclopedia article regardless of feedback or should I reach out to the user who provided the rejection for further details?

Request on 18:27:28, 23 October 2020 for assistance on AfC submission by JfritterEdit


Hi there! I don't quite understand why my article for submission has been rejected twice now. It's about a film sound designer named Sean Garnhart, and the reason it was rejected was because it apparently doesn't show that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia article through published, reliable sources that are independent of the subject. I included sources from credible entities like the Emmys (which he has won one of), Motion Picture Editors Guild, and the British Film Institute. I have seen other pages that have been published using similar award entities as sources - Skip Lievsay and Ren Klyce can be used as examples. I do notice the main difference is that those pages have references to sources from the Oscars - but my question would be: does a sound designer really need to have been nominated for an Oscar to be qualified to have a Wikipedia page? In my opinion, that should not be the only metric that would make a sound designer credible/notable. The Emmys are a similarly large award, as are awards from the Motion Picture Editors Guild and BFI.

My references are legit. You can visit the pages to confirm the authenticity.

We are not interested in a rerun of the Seigenthaler incident. Inline citations are expected to be in the text proper, used to verify claims the article makes. Search results are not acceptable sources. Trivial mentions (name-drops and sound bites) are not acceptable sources. Two of your sources 404 out. Three of your sources (would be four if one of them weren't a 404) are the exact same article, which makes all but one of those useless and implies a press release. Your sources are, frankly, not up to par. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Takes a strong man to deny... 22:25, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

@许木23: The decline notice says that you need to demonstrate that the subject has received "significant coverage". If you read our general notability guidelines, they will explain what "significant coverage" means. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:00, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

19:20:00, 24 October 2020 review of draft by MagitroopaEdit


Would there be a way of getting this draft merged or deleted altogether? I'm never the best with where/how to request things for deletion/merge. Seems like Mcnickleguy57 created it on October 18, and it was later moved to draftspace. There is already a draft at Draft:Santiago of the Seas that has been around since July, so I see no reason for this second draft to exist. Magitroopa (talk) 19:20, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Respected sir My article was vindictively and maliciously declined by a reviewer.

Please go through my coversation below with the previous reviewer and you will understand why I was in no position to fix the problem.

Copy of my conversation:-

"Please see a copy of my conversation with him below.

"The POV forks have already been fixed please check. Actually this is my first wiki page submission so I guess every place has its own style and language in which content is required to be written. Be it newspaper or websites :))

You cannot "fix" it. The whole thing is a POV fork. The answer was "no", and will remain "no" no matter how many times you repeat the question. Seraphimblade Talk to me 14:05, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that but a gentler tone would be appreciated. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bhumi2tandon (talk • contribs) 14:20, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Mr Seraphimblade At 14:20 I objected to a high toned message from you and requested you to use a gentler tone and within 20 minutes of my message you went ahead and declined my draft page submission and arbitrarily closed a discussion that was posted on the page with respect to the merger of the page which was started today morning only and in which only you had given your opinion so far. The page was supposed to remain open for atleast seven days as per guidelines. I find this act on your behalf highly vindictive and prejudiced. Let me remind you that while Wikipedia grants some discretionary powers such vindictive acts are not covered by that.

Had you deleted my page the first time you went through it and thought it to be a POV fork I would not have objected but the action was done within 20 minutes of my submitting a message respectfully objecting to you high toned message this is clearly a vindictive act and highly objectionable behaviour for a place like wikipedia. Let me remind you no one not even you OWN the Wikipedia and small editors like us are the reason the Wikipedia exists. I would really appreciate if you stay away from the draft page now."

How can I fix the reason for decline when the page was declined vindictively and arbitrarily after removing a discussion posted in the group with respect to its merger that had been opened in morning only and in which only the reviewer had given his opinion so far. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bhumi2tandon (talk • contribs) 00:01, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
