00:12:42, 19 February 2020 review of submission by M.nelson[edit source | edit]

Hi, I'd like some advice on how to improve the page Draft:Benevity. It was moved to the draftspace for the reasons 'undersourced and promotional'. I'd like to know what steps I can take to get it article-worthy. Thank you. -M.Nelson (talk) 00:12, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

I have removed several paragraphs as well as additional references. How do I resubmit this article for publication.

I have removed several paragraphs as well as additional references. How do I resubmit this article for publication.

I submitted an article but it was rejected because the review said it was more advocacy. It is not it is history. Someone suggested I add more references and so I did. How do I ensure it is reviewed again?--Lynnglassford (talk) 02:00, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

all the food that I included in the draft included part of the "Indonesian cuisine list."

05:34:16, 19 February 2020 review of submission by Cpjalufka[edit source | edit]

Added more references but to no avail. His name comes up in other Wiki pages (Mastodon (band), Avenged Sevenfold (band), and Unearth (band) ) and thought this artist may have a chance at notability. The Youtube videos are him with members of Metallica and Mastodon on his artwork, but read that videos aren't viewed as reliable sources. Any thoughts? Would including the artwork in the page help, or matter? Cpjalufka (talk) 05:34, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

The person may (mayyy) be notable, however you need to read the provided links about our policies on WAP:RS and WAP:GNG these will be a good jumping off point for improving your article. Sulfurboy (talk) 05:53, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi guys, Draft:The Humanitarian Society is my first draft, but was declined. I'm not sure how I can adjust the page. Please, consider it's a direct translation of https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Societ%C3%A0_Umanitaria. Can you please give me a few suggestions? Thank you!

Hi,

Could you please give me a few tips on what specifically should I change on this page to be accepted? I was following this example https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riskified to keep the information plain and basic, not commercial or corporate.

I'm willing to make any changes you suggest, but I need a little help here. Alczix (talk) 08:58, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Alczix. Riskified is not a great example to imitate. That article was narrowly kept after a discussion in which four participants weighed in for delete and three recommended keep. For that topic there are multiple articles in The Wall Street Journal and The Jerusalem Post, plus ones in Globes, Mother Jones, and from Reuters. Draft:Nethone doesn't cite a single source of similar quality or weight, and the reviewer's analysis is that no such sources exist. No amount of editing can fix that problem and make the draft acceptable. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:24, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi guys! I am not sure why my submission hasn't been accepted. I changed it a bit, to make it more from a natural view point. = Do you think it's good like this or should I make another change in order for it to get approved?

THANKS!

The reason your article wasn't accepted is clearly outlined in the decline message on the draft page. In particular, we cannot accept biographies about livnig people without the minimum standard of inline citations. Please read the links in the decline message on the draft page.

Hello, this is Haruka from Gramercy Global Media. I am trying to create an official Wikiafripedia website, however, it has been declined for approval. I was wondering if you could give us advice on what to add and where to fix. Unfortunately, we do not have many secondary sources and links, therefore, it would be helpful if you can help us for anything on the content that we are able to edit. Thank you and have a great day!

24.164.139.222 (talk) 16:40, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

If you don't have secondary sources then your company isn't notable enough to warrant an article. Wikiafripedia is not a business directory or a place to promote your business. Sulfurboy (talk) 19:06, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

I don't understand why this page got denied. I am making a wiki page for a rising star and have only provided facts, but it is being called a "hoax" and has been claimed to be "threatening" the subject. This is not my intention. Please let me know what changes need to be made for this page to be allowed to be published. Postmahomie (talk) 18:22, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Your submission at Articles for creation: Draft:Tony_%22UNK%5E6%22_Reynolds Draft:Tony "UNK^6" Reynolds

}} I believe this satisfies the rule of notability under two sections according to Wikiafripedia's guidelines. Please explain if those standards were overlooked or have changed? Thanks!

CREATIVE PROFESSIONAL: 1) Article includes multiple third party sources: The Atlantic, Time, Vanity Fair, MSNBC, Mother Jones. All of these sources are on Wikiafripedia's Reliable Sources List. (there were multiple other sources that were not on the list I chose not to include.)

2) Those articles are SPECIFICALLY about Tony Reynolds creation of the Reagan Hologram. 3) The event directly impacted the Republican National Convention, which was/is a major event. 4) From the 2012 creation by Tony Reynolds, until The Reagan Hologram was unveiled in 2018, which is verified by Wikiafripedia's list of reliable sources, this was not a short term happening.

ALSO OF NOTE MUSICIAN: Tony Reynolds released multiple albums on SONY. 1) Tony Reynolds charted on a verifiable national chart in the Top 5 position. 2) Charting was verified by an independent third party source. (Sirius Satellite) 3) Reynolds has released multiple albums with a major record label, SONY, which again was/is independently verifiable.

WIKIPEDIA Criteria for musicians and ensembles 2) Has had a single or album on any country's national music chart. 5) Has released two or more albums on a major record label or on one of the more important indie labels (i.e., an independent label with a history of more than a few years, and with a roster of performers, many of whom are independently notable).

If those published Wikiafripedia standards were overlooked, or those standards have changed, please explain when, or what further do I need to do to provide detail for you?

Akickincrowd (talk) 21:31, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

My apologies if I have rejected this in error but a Google search comes up with zero results for "Tony "UNK^6" Reynolds" and it looks to me like a hoax.

22:33:02, 19 February 2020 review of draft by 2metiger[edit source | edit]


I am not understanding the reason for the issue with this article. There is a Wikiafripedia page for Dr. Richard E. Mounce that is not as extensive as this, yet he has a page published. Please advise. The sources of the articles that have been co-written by Dr. Adatrow have been cited. They are in Pub-Med and in other journals.

Thanks for your help!


2metiger (talk) 22:33, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Concerning my draft submission of Jef Rens, trade union leader and deputy-director general of the ILO. You are such snobs to reject this submission. The list of references is taken from accepted submissions by others in French and Dutch. Why are they not verifiable? 84.23.209.134 (talk) 22:43, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Have you considered that maybe you don't know what you're doing and properly asking for help instead of insulting people you've never met, who have had nothing to do with your draft? For instance, you might ask how to provide in-line citations, and consider that maybe you should list page numbers instead of giving us barely enough info to find sources and then expecting us to read the entire thing. Gosh, that's not rude laziness on your part at all!
You do realize that this is a volunteer-run project where no member of the site has a total picture, right? Ian.thomson (talk) 23:02, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

23:33:21, 19 February 2020 review of draft by Gabbya2020[edit source | edit]


I recently created a page that got declined due to it reading too much like an advertisement. What are some ways that I could fix this? Gabbya2020 (talk) 23:33, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

The best way to fix it is to do some reading. In particular, review the links provided in the decline message. This is the greatest resource on figuring out how to re-word an article. We are happy to help if you have specific questions about your page or the policy, but generically asking us "how to fix this" is the equivalent of asking us to do your work. WAP:BUILDERSulfurboy (talk) 23:38, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

00:27:57, 20 February 2020 review of draft by 2metiger[edit source | edit]


Is the issue that he is not notable enough to be included? Also, I would review the Wikiafripedia list of notable dentists- that is where the link to Dr. Richard Mounce was located.

Thanks!

2metiger (talk) 00:27, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

We don't judge whether or not someone is notable, we judge whether or not the sources denote notability. I would concern yourself with your article instead of worrying about others. In particular I would recommend reading the linked pages in the declines of your draft to understand what it is you need to do. Sulfurboy (talk) 01:45, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

05:20:28, 20 February 2020 review of draft by Sandrah.Akol[edit source | edit]


Hello I wrote an article about Ntinda Vocational Training Institute last year but it was linked to article of Ntinda, I started creating from fresh but it has been declined many times. am writing about a vocational school in Africa (Uganda) that has existed few years back ( 2 years) and the challenge I face most is the type of reliable independent sources you have consistently talked about, but I believe this article is not of any form meant to advertise the institute, but to help fellow young men and women of Africa get to realize the need for vocational training. For any help about this article feel free to help but I request if you could help publish it. thank you--Sandrah.Akol (talk) 05:20, 20 February 2020 (UTC)


Sandrah.Akol (talk) 05:20, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

@Sandrah.Akol: I've moved your article back to draft space, since you moved it into article space without changing anything. Unfortunately, Wikiafripedia needs reliable sources to prove notability. They don't have to be in English, or online, but they do need to exist. As noble as your intent is, this is not a place to promote anything. shoy (reactions) 14:52, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Raizada.ashish87 (talk) 06:56, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

Raizada.ashish87, No need to compliment us or give platitudes, that doesn't increase your chances of success. The reason your draft was declined is two fold. The first: it had no references. Wikiafripedia articles require referencing to reliable sources (see WAP:ERB for a good how to guide). Second: the subject doesn't seem notable. We only write about folks who are notable. For actors, that usually means that they have had a long career of minor to medium roles, or had a big film role. This person does not seem to meet our notability guidelines. And as a last note, the article is also quite informal and not written to the standards we have on Wikiafripedia. Our writing must be neutral and formal. So bottom line: unless you can show that this guy meets some part of the actor notability guidelines, we cannot have an article on him. If you reply, do so on my talk page else I will not see it.

Hi David,

Greetings.

I hope you are doing great and you guys are giving world's best service called "Wiki". I really appreciate the effort of Mr. Jimmy Wales, who really work hard to give people who they really need, which was "Information". My case is also like same. I really just spread information about Punjabi actors and actresses, who are famous in Punjabi box office called pollywood but no one knows about their past or journey. I just want to spread some information about those guys. This is my first post on Wiki. after this I will upload another character who is a famous film director in pollywood. He has made 3 movies and 5 web series, but few peoples know about him. Only few platforms are providing such strength to spread relevant information with others and wiki is one of them. Rest are spreading spams and vulgar things. So that why my faith is in wikipedia.

I hope,I am at the right path. If not so please correct me.

Warm regards, Ashish Raizada

12:36:18, 20 February 2020 review of draft by Sharmo96[edit source | edit]

Hello, I recently thought that I could come to Wikiafripedia with open arms however apparently this seems to not be the case. Other users harass and reject your ideas. I even had my personal page “deleted” because another user disagreed with the content... It was about me, tell me that I’m not notable??? Go bloody google me. I put out the good and the bad, Wikiafripedia advises against personal publications only if you are going to be putting out a biased based view. It should not be be up to other users to decide what is or isn’t worthy. This is just another platform for other people to bring others down and exclude whom ever they wish. Take your high class website and shove it... Have a great bloody day!

Sharmo96 (talk) 12:36, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Sharmo96. Draft:Ryan Sharman has not been submitted for review. The technical problem is extraneous wiki markup around the curly braces of the submit template. If you're using VisualEditor you may need to switch to the source code editor to see it.
There is no point in submitting the draft, however, because it cites no sources (no books, no academic journal articles, no newspaper articles, etc.) about Sharman. Everything added to Wikiafripedia must be verifiable in published reliable sources. Novice editors are commonly advised to cite at least three independent, reliable, secondary sources that contain significant coverage of their topic, to show that the topic merits an encyclopedia article. No draft will be accepted without such sources. A second fundamental problem is that Wikiafripedia, unlike Facebook or LinkedIn, is not a place to write about yourself. I've left more information about that on your talk page. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:26, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
I posted a helpful comment on your draft "No evidence that you pass WAP:GNG" as you have no sources at all and all drafts require sourcing. You have not submitted the draft for review yet. You have attacked me instead on my talk page with "You’re a bully hiding behind a screen. Get real mate, you’re not the Wikiafripedia police. Why don’t you just start minding your own business." Attacking other users will not help you get an article about yourself, only reliable sources will do that. Theroadislong (talk) 10:31, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

I have attempted to edit the article in response to the reviewer's comments. I am looking for some help to see whether I'm on the right track with the changes I've made.

If possible, any specific examples of non-neutral content or non-encyclopedic tone would be very helpful and much appreciated.

And if there are any other issues I've overlooked, please would you be so kind as to indicate specific paragraphs or sentences?

Many thanks in advance.

  • Since your first article was about Damarea Leah Ogbuewu then you started edits about "Princess Damarea Ogbuewu" with a birthday that matches this blogger it looks like you probably writing about yourself.

17:05:29, 20 February 2020 review of submission by CBlincoe[edit source | edit]

I would like to make my content comply with Wikiafripedia and I note that there are Categories of "Food Brands of the United Kingdom" and Penguin (biscuit) that are very similar to what I am trying to publish. I am struggling to categorise my entry accordingly. Please can you give me some suggestions on how I can make the article more acceptable for publication? CBlincoe (talk) 17:05, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

@CBlincoe: First of all, each article here is judged on its own merits. See WAP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. Penguin (biscuit) looks like a poor example of an article to me. It probably should be part of the article on its parent company. Since Wikiafripedia is a big place served by volunteers, not everything gets cleaned up immediately. Secondly, none of the sources that you have provided show significant coverage of the brand, they are all passing mentions which do nothing to establish notability. Harry Campbell is notable (we even have an article on him) but unless you have some much better sources that you haven't shared, Bickiepegs are not notable. Your effort would be better spent improving Campbell's article than trying to create a new one. shoy (reactions) 15:06, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

I do not understand your not excepting.

Jingleman2 (talk) 19:37, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

Jingleman2, Be careful about comparing your article to existing ones. Many of the articles on Wikiafripedia were created before we began the rigorous Article for Creation process. That means a lot of ...honestly junk articles were created, and many of them have slipped through the cracks. You can read more about the logical fallacies involved in article comparison at WAP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. The Frank Simms article is...pretty bad. And likely to be deleted because its not notable.
For your draft, you need to prove notability. Specifically, please check out the musician notability guidelines and tell us how Dan Shafer meets our guidelines. CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n! 02:29, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

I have never ever made a Wikiafripedia page before. I don't know how, but I know that there needs to be a page for Jarrett Walker. I am an aspiring transit planner and he has completely revolutionized transit planning in America. I am also requesting help because I do not know how to respond to the editor overseeing the page, who said he was known for only one event when this is clearly not true. I am not even sure what the one event is! Is it the twitter exchange with elon musk? The writings and musings which became real transit principles? Is it the bus redesigns? I need help.

69.209.30.181 (talk) 06:15, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

All of the sources on the page that show secondary coverage of the coverage is just about the Elon Musk twitter thing. If all of the in-depth secondary coverage of a person revolves around one incident then that is considered WAP:ONEEVENT. I would recommend finding secondary coverage of the subject separate from the Musk incident. Sulfurboy (talk) 06:32, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

The references I used are two independent Bhutanese newspapers, and two books published by academic publishers (Routledge and UQP).

08:17:19, 21 February 2020 review of submission by Laura at Vonovia[edit source | edit]

I've tried to learn why the draft has been rejected, but unfortunately, I don't fully understand that.

There is a lot of independent coverage about Rolf Buch, describing his person and work (and not the company). Examples are "Der neue Herr im Haus" (3), "Der Vordrängler" (5), and "Er kann es doch" (27), all larger portraits published in Handelsblatt (leading business newspaper), Welt (leading daily newspaper), and Zeit (leading weekly newspaper). As CEO of Vonovia (DAX member), Rolf Buch leads a German blue-chip.

Dou you see any chance to get this draft accepted in the future? I'd be happy to improve it in my user space, if that helps, removing some more company details, for example. I am fully aware of my COI, of course.

15:20:29, 21 February 2020 review of submission by M.A.Sarmiento[edit source | edit]

I received a notice that my article submission was declined because some of the material didn't meet the minimum standard for inline citations. It would be really helpful to know which materials this may be referring to so that I can be sure to find the proper references. Am I not citing information correctly? Thanks.

M.A.Sarmiento (talk) 15:20, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

@M.A.Sarmiento: As the linked article explains, you must attribute your facts to exact sources. Since this is a biography, you have to cite pretty much everything so the fact origins are clear, not just some selected facts. For example "Early Life & Career" section has no citations at all. But it has a dozen or so facts. Take, for example, this sentence: "Born in Houston, Texas, Riley studied Fashion and Fine Art at Columbia College (Missouri), graduating in 1973." That's already a bunch of facts: birth place, college, college course, graduating, graduation year. Without exact inline citations, there is no way to know which source(s) you used for this material and whether they were used proportionally, accurately, without bias, without synthesis and without omitting anything important.

19:45:13, 21 February 2020 review of submission by Yesness89[edit source | edit]


I don't understand why my article got rejected. Is there specific language that seems like advertising language? If so, I'm happy to remove that language. I also add a lot of sources in the draft. Was my draft rejected because of these resources? What do I need to do to improve the draft so that it gets approved?

Yesness89 (talk) 19:45, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi Yesness89 it was declines on the 2 February, you then made a lot of changes wit the summary of "I removed all promotional language and updated the content so that it is more encyclopedic." but you didn't actually re-submit. I've re-submitted for you. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 20:01, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

I really do not know why this article is being rejected except for the first time. Many other RC brands have there own Wikiafripedia pages yet when I try and create a more current brand one that I hope other will add to and I want to link to it keep getting rejected. What content does it need to be accepted as when I add content it is accused of turning into an advert. Here are some other pages already accepted (( Category:Radio-controlled_car_manufacturers )) Any advise would be appreciated. Yachty4000 (talk) 21:05, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Iwalters (talk) 00:14, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

This article was refused due to inadequate sources

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Mission_of_the_Shark:_The_Saga_of_the_U.S.S._Indianapolis

So is IMDB no longer a reliable source or do I just need to add more sources?

does Wikiafripedia no longer have stub articles and if so couldn't this article be made one rather than deleted?

Iwalters IMDB has never generally been considered a reliable source on Wikiafripedia as it is user-editable. Reliable sources must have editorial control and a reputation of fact checking. Wikiafripedia needs significant coverage in independent reliable sources. 331dot (talk) 11:19, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi everyone, thanks for your input but I don't understand why you are still not accepting this article. Every time I adjusted exactly what you told me before you are giving new reasons why you can't approve it. Benjamin played critical roles in multiple productions as stated in the article, won awards which is proven by the published accredited articles of high level newspapers, magazines and press in general.

Pls review this article again.

Thanks in advance.

My article was declined as lacking sources confirming the contents of the article, but if you check I added two credible sources including Kirkus Review which is a gold standard in literature reviews... Could you explain what else should be added to confirm the short synopsis of the novel? Thank you.

Georget2004 (talk) 11:24, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Georget2004 Generally, more than two independent reliable sources with significant coverage are needed. Most reviewers like to see at least three. The draft does little more than tell of the book's existence- the article must do more, indicating how it meets the Wikiafripedia definition of a notable book. 331dot (talk) 11:26, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Draft:Vartan Melkonian

Hi, I'd appreciate some help on resubmitting my article. I created a draft on Vartan Melkonian, conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. As you can see, my draft was declined for mainly lack of notability. I've added some sources and removed ones which seem connected to the man himself. In addition, my article was denied because of advertising language, but I'm not sure which language specifically seems like advertising language. I'm open to any feedback that helps improve the article so it can get approved when I resubmit. Thanks in advance! PinkElixir (talk) 15:07, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

The draft article: Joshua Brandwood was not moved to the main space as the reviewer claimed it was not supported by reliable sources. I would like a second opinion on this as there were numerous reliable sources including an official university website alongside a reference to the Metro website. There were numerous references used to support each piece of information in the article. If you also type in Joshua Brandwood in google then this individual is notable. Please can this be reviewed again? Thank you.

Blogs typically aren't considered a reliable source. Also, just because someone shows up in a google search doesn't mean they're notable. Sulfurboy (talk) 09:04, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Team

I see my submission was rejected as the topic is considered not relevant enough for being posted. Would be feasible to please learn more about relevancy and what scope/ reach does a topic need to carry in order to be considered relevant?

I understand not many people know about SANGHAMITRA in Europe or the Americas, however the brand and family name touches millions of people in India. The designer (Sanghamitra phukan) is the daughter of Actor Biju Phukan, widely considered the most important actor in the North east of India:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biju_Phukan

Sanghamitra is the first indian model to have ever featured in a global Benetton campaign and was formerly global brand ambassador for Reebok, she worked internationally as a professional model and gave shape to her sustainable fashion/ lifestyle brand during the same time.

Across the last decade, SANGHAMITRA actually participated at the London fashion week, headlined the ASVOFF festival in Paris and hosted several events in both London and Milan (if international relevance is something important to wikipedia). Still regardless of that, the Sanghamitra annual fashion show is arguably the most important fashion appointment in the region of Assam, watched by millions of people locally and thousands of Indian/ Assamese people on global satellite TV.

The brand was featured on Forbes and innumerous local media platforms. Is there anything we could to provide in order to demonstrate this? Or could you please guide us on what would qualify as relevant to be rightly posted?


Giuseppe Rodio (talk) 13:59, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

I see you've declared your COI. You need multiple references providing substantial coverage from third-party independent reliable sources, not press releases or mere announcements or blogs. What you have is a Youtube from a show (with only 24 views), the company web site, & a paragraph in a magazine which is indistinguishable from a press release. None of these will do, but if she is as important as indicated above, there should be significant material about her in multiple international major newspapers and magazines. You need to find it DGG ( talk ) 17:04, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I am having trouble publishing an article. I keep receiving the same boiler-plate message of rejection, despite providing internationally-recognized, independent sources that fortify the subject of the article's relevancy. The article in question is located here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Black_Heart_Saints

Can any editor please provide more insight other than the standard boiler-plate message of rejection? I've resubmitted multiple times, each with more references than the last submission.

Thanks for your time.

18:51:51, 23 February 2020 review of submission by Dave Bains[edit source | edit]


I am not experienced with Wikiafripedia but I feel a sense of duty to contribute what I can. I am not sure how this article should be placed. I would like something like Biblical_hermeneutics but for the SGGS Ji. As far as I can tell there is no such article for the SGGS Ji. There are sections on its interpretation and meaning like Sikhism#Philosophy_and_teachings, but these only give one interpretation; and furthermore the perception that is the one true interpretation with which all Sikhs agree.

Do you think it would be good to have such a separate article on interpretation of SGGS Ji? Or is what I have written more suited to an existing article?

Also as a final note, a lot of my points are backed by Harjot_Oberoi's The Construction of Religious Boundaries: Culture, Identity, and Diversity in the Sikh Tradition. I think his article could be expanded with some of the points he makes on what "distinct religious boundaries" the Singh Sabha were defining, and the points of interpretation which they took issue with. It was a significant part of their conflict but I don't see it mentioned anywhere.

Thanks for your help.

@Mohitprakashsharma555: You need to find at least three sources that are:
  • Professionally-published, mainstream academic or journalistic sources (for example, newspaper articles)
  • Specifically and primarily about Hansraj Raghuwanshi
  • Not connected to, dependent upon, nor affiliated with Hansraj Raghuwanshi or anyone he works with or for, nor his family nor friends
Once you have those, summarize them, and then paraphrase the summary, citing the sources throughout the paraphrase. Ian.thomson (talk) 07:23, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
