@Elvin mail: You may edit Draft:Elvin Baruah and copy the above content to it, if you wish to develop it further, but nothing suggests that Baruah is notable (suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia). Also no draft will be accepted unless it cites reliable, independent, published sources, see WP:REFB for how to cite. --Worldbruce (talk) 02:16, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I submitted

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Proposed_Encyclopedias

For review. The submission-received box IS NOT SHOWING UP the bottom of the page, so it seems like I missed something and the system is not recognizing my draft as ready for review. What should I change to make it actually show up as submitted for review?


Thanks

Emoritz2017 (talk) 04:13, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

@Emoritz2017: your Draft is displaying the Gray "not yet submitted" box at top; have you tried clicking the Submit button located on the Gray box? That should enter your article in the queue and turn the box Yellow. MatthewVanitas (talk) 10:14, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

The article that I submitted for Louise Stanger was declined and erased ASAP. However, the text was 100% original because I worked together with Dr. Stanger herself. Could you explain me which part of the text was copied? Thank you! Lide Magde (talk) 07:56, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

@Lide Magde: I can't see the page since copyvio pages are hidden, but the deleting admin said the page was copied from https://www.allaboutinterventions.com/about-dr-stanger/ ; does that seem to make sense? MatthewVanitas (talk) 10:16, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

18:46:35, 21 May 2018 review of submission by Apricotnectar

The article was deleted as an unambiguous copyright violation, but its source code header is explicitly commented to identify the source, with note that (1) the article in question is a mirror of the original Wikipedia article (2) the entire site is covered under blanket C.C. BY 4.0 license. No copyright violation occurred. Apricotnectar (talk) 18:46, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

@Apricotnectar: To have a draft restored, begin by leaving a message at the bottom of the talk page of the administrator who deleted it, explaining why Draft:Christopher Altman shouldn't have been deleted on 21 May. That's usually enough to clear up any misunderstanding fairly quickly. --Worldbruce (talk) 01:46, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

I'm trying to figure out why this article was rejected in order to change it to meet Wikipedia guidelines. I provided source material for reputable news organizations. Is it the content? What exactly do you require because I don't understand the rejection.

Wlindars (talk) 20:17, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

@Wlindars: I've left a detailed comment on the draft. It may be impossible to make it meet Wikipedia's guidelines. If it is possible, it will take a lot of work. --Worldbruce (talk) 01:30, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I've just added some references to external sources to increase the relevance of this newly created article on the Nordic Africa Days. And I've made some textual adjustments. I hope you will find it of relevance for the wikipedia community. Please let me know if there are any parts of the description that you would like me to develop further. Best / Henrik

12:24:12, 22 May 2018 review of submission by Pk.sofsem


Dear reviewers, I would appreciate your help with the draft of the entry on International Conference on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Computer Science (or SOFSEM for short). This was rejected yesterday due to the lack of other than primary sources. I believe that I have resolved this issue. Could somebody, please, take a look?

In addition to "official" sources listed in the draft, you might also like to take a look, e.g., at the first answer to a question at StackExchange, where a list of notable TCS conferences is given. You can see that the SOFSEM conference is listed among other conferences, many of which already have an entry at Wikipedia (see also the page List of computer science conferences).

Many thanks in advance.

21:24:54, 22 May 2018 review of submission by Lkarpenk


Lkarpenk (talk) 21:24, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello. I have a an entry on "Shirley Willer" that is pending review. I understand it will take up to two months. But I have a question as the entry is pending review. I have a photo of Shirley Willer that I have explicit permission from the photographer to include on the entry. But I don't understand how to include the photo on my draft? Please let me know what to do.

Thanks.

Hi Lkarpenk. Having the photographer's permission to use the photo in Wikipedia is insufficient, so start with Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. To further understand what they have to give up, you may find it useful to read Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials as well. Once you have the correct permission, adding an image is a two-step process: first upload it, then use it in on a page.
Go to Commons:First steps and carefully step through the tutorial. When you get to "First steps/Uploading files", don't dive in too hastily. First follow the link on that page to learn about the different licensing options. Other useful advance reading includes Wikipedia:File names and Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Images, which will prepare you to answer important questions the upload wizard will ask you. If after that you have any questions or doubts, Commons has its own help desk.
Once you've uploaded an image, the picture tutorial can guide you through how to use it on a page. --Worldbruce (talk) 23:46, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Request on 13:48:14, 23 May 2018 for assistance on AfC submission by Thatguy1987


Hello, a while back I created an article for Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie, and it was declined due to some kind of copyright issue regarding word usage in the article. I changed what needed to be changed so that it would be more acceptable but it ended up being deleted anyway. I was curious is it possible for this article to be brough back? I would love a second opinion about it.

20:07:06, 23 May 2018 review of submission by MinskBel


Hello,

I asked the person who declined the article to help me editing the article based on the point described beneath. I have not received any response. I am asking any experienced editor to help me.

The submission was declined based on reason that there is virtually zero citation count on Scholar and it doesn’t meet criteria for reliable, secondary sources. Using citation counts from any west agencies for publications in opened societies cannot reflect significance of work which was done in closed societies (like Soviet Union) especially if the publications were done not on English and published in the Soviet Union. Please consider the following:

1. The author worked in Soviet Union where there were a lot of restrictions. Only government could decide what to publish on English for other countries. The criteria for citing on Scholar is hardly reliable for scientists who lived in communist countries and it does not reflect the importance of scientific work.

2. After Soviet Union collapse some information became available on Engllish.Thinking about reliable, secondary sources there is an evidence that such a scientist produced significant amount of scientific publications and inventions.

2.1. Some materials were re-published on English – Soviet (later Russian) Engineering Review - Scopus (please see independent source –https://www.scopus.com/authid/detail.uri?authorId=7004021962).

2.2. There is also independent source on German - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology(please see https://www.tib.eu/en/search/?id=198&tx_tibsearch_search%5Bquery%5D=Abugov%2C+A.L.&tx_tibsearch_search%5Bsrt%5D=rk&tx_tibsearch_search%5Bcnt%5D=20).

2.3. There is an independent source on Polish - Institute of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (please see http://www.ios.krakow.pl/sawios/expertus.php?KAT=%2Fhome%2Fwww%2Fsawios%2Fpar%2F&FST=data.fst&FDT=data.fdt&ekran=WIN&lnkmsk=2&cond=AND&mask=2&F_00=00&V_00=Abugov+A.L.)

2.4. The information about inventions can be found at European Patent Office (please see https://worldwide.espacenet.com/searchResults?compact=false&ST=advanced&IN=Abugov%20Aleksandr%20L&locale=en_EP&DB=EPODOC&PA=%5BSU%5D#!)

3. Since not all publications and inventions were available for different citing agencies and only small amount of publications were available for other than Soviet Union countries there is a full source of publications and inventions on https://independent.academia.edu/AlexanderAbugov This source contains scanned copies of original publications and author’s certificates for inventions on Russian which can be downloaded. Those copies reflect significant contribution to science which with Soviet Union collapse is available now for other researchers.

4. Please also take into consideration that in publications the name of author is written in Russian tradition as A.L.Abugov or Abugov A.L. There is a good amount of citations in publications on Russian which probably are not reflected on Scholar or other than Russian languages citation agencies.

5. All described above mentions proves that subject is notable and worthy.

Please help me. Thanks!

Hi Sdunham6 Greetings to you. For referencing/inline citaion, pls see Referencing for beginners page; however, your article has been deleted (the second time) as both times have been rejected and deleted under copyright infringement - see here [2] . Copy right infrienment is a serious issues and please DO NOT copy and paste material from source but summary the content intended in your own words. Press release is primary source and Wikipedia article content need to "directly" support by independent, reliable source for verification. All articles in wikipedia need to meet the notability requirement to merit a stand alone article in main space, and for organisations' notability requirements pls refer to WP:NORG. You could visit WP:Teahouse for any editing topics which you might need help. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 04:29, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi Sdunham6 I saw you place a conflict of interest tag (but incorrectly) on your user page. If you a paid editor for said company of the article you need to disclose it to Wikipedia.

How do I place my image on to my draft? Madamobile1935 (talk) 03:50, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Madamobile1935 - Hi, what you're trying to do is write your autobiography on here. That's a bad idea. Wikipedia's not a family history site and your draft doesn't show you would meet the Notability criteria for inclusion. Even if you do, it's still a poor idea to try to write about yourself, as you will struggle to be objective. As it stands, your draft won't be accepted. KJP1 (talk) 06:19, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Ashenbst - The issue, as the reviewer pointed out, is that it's a self-sourced advertisement with no indication of Notability. Five of the six sources are to the topic's own website and the sixth is a review on a blog by the website's founder. None are independent. There's no coverage, let alone significant coverage, from reliable, independent sources to indicate that the website warrants an article. KJP1 (talk) 06:24, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello, I would like to know why I can't link the English version of the 'Gunther Krichbaum' page to the other versions (DE;NO;RO;FR). I clicked 'Add link' on the left side of on the German page and then added the 'en' and name of the article (the languages have the bagde option there). The changes were saved, but I can't see the English version option when I go on any of the other pages (RO;FR;DE;NO). Iolandar (talk) 09:09, 24 May 2018 (UTC)


Iolandar - it is possible to create a link to an article from another Wikipedia language by adding a link such as: Polish article on WWE [[:de:Gunther Krichbaum]], however, there is incredibly rarely reasons to do this (Other than maybe in an external links section (I'm not familiar with the policies of the other wikipedias for this). However, on the English Wikipedia, we do not link in this way inside of articles (Save for Wikipedia space, and talk pages), and only then for hints on how to improve english wikipedia pages.

Hello I feel this article is considerable as I found the reference of his work, I know he is not notable actor maybe but we cannot deny the fact of his work, if we can give a chance to this article we might be able to get more correct reference in the future. for the first time I worked very hard to write such a article and also as I researched on this very much by watching each movie to get this under consideration to write.

I request assistance to make this article genuine as under the policies and request to move this to main article space from draft. thanks

Hi Ahanamirza. The subject is not a suitable one for a stand-alone encyclopedia article at this point in his career. Revisit the topic in two or three years, by which time more may have been written about him in independent, reliable, secondary sources. --Worldbruce (talk) 05:31, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

22:35:52, 24 May 2018 review of draft by 71.32.0.123


I have submitted a brief biography of Marcel Jurca, but cannot properly edit the article. He is mostly well known in Europe, but many americans know of him as well, and I was surprised to see that this entry is missing. Marcel was a notable aircraft designer (the european equivalent of burt rutan) so I made an entry.

Please look for the submission made a few minutes ago and publish it. There are already articles on his planes, but nothing on the man. I am not related to him and his company seems to have vanished, but this is important historical documentation.

71.32.0.123 (talk) 22:35, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello 71.32.0.123, the subject look promising, but you need improve the article a little - see below
  1. pls provide a few more independent reliable source from newspaper, major magazines, books.
  2. pls provide inline citation instead just copied and paste the URL on the "Reference section". Pls visit Help:Referencing for beginners and place the inline citation in the body text accordingly.
  3. pls provide all the planes he built/designed and wiki link them. I believe this are the planes he built - [3].
  4. have a look Burt Rutan as an example and try to section the in Draft:Marcel Jurca.
Please ping me, if you need further assistance. Cheers! CASSIOPEIA(talk) 13:06, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, I am needing help with my page 'Inspire Group'. On review it has been deemed too promotional, however I have tried my best to describe the company and what it does in a neutral tone. Can I please get some advice on what specifically to do from here? Or is there any way I can request for someone else to write the article for me? Thanks so much.

Learningisthebest (talk) 23:46, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Learningisthebest. You may request at Wikipedia:Requested articles that an article be written, but one reviewer has opined that Inspire Group doesn't meet Wikipedia's inclusion criteria for companies. If that's true, then no article will be allowed, no matter who writes it or how it is worded. Even the existence of an article can be promotional. --Worldbruce (talk) 05:21, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Just want to query what I should do. I had a book out from the library (The Striped Ships), and saw that the author wiki article linked to some articles for her individual books. The Striped Ships didn't have an article though, so I thought I might dive in and create it. It got rejected as not having verifiable references. I had put the book itself as the reference but maybe without enough detail in my citation of it? I've since put the ISBN and publisher etc in there. But what else should I do? I could maybe put in a 'Critical reception' section and link to Publisher's Weekly review, or something like that, but is that necessary to correct the faults with the article? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi DrThneed. Not every book is suitable for a stand-alone encyclopedia article. The official guideline that applies is Wikipedia:Notability (books). It calls for "two or more non-trivial ... reviews", but in practice Wikipedians often subject modern fiction to a tougher standard. I've seen drafts/articles citing five or six reviews declined/deleted if they aren't all full-length reviews by professional book critics in top-notch publications.
An alternative to creating an article about the book would be to expand Eloise Jarvis McGraw with information about the book. You may find it useful to study some of Wikipedia's best articles about authors: Enid Blyton, Mary Martha Sherwood, Nancy Mitford, and Olivia Manning, to see how their works are discussed in their biographies. --Worldbruce (talk) 05:08, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

I'm creating a company page but doesn't seem to meet the criteria regarding references. Would it pass with no citations at this point ? Thank you for your help. Bastien COTTE Fluigent (talk) 07:10, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello Bastien COTTE Fluigent, Your draft has been rejected as according to the reviewer it lack independent, reliable source to pass the notability reimbursements for organisation under Wikipedia guidelines. Pls check if the company meet the notability and if so provide more independent reliable source before resubmit. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 12:33, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

I am trying to create a page for Professor Ishfaq Ahmad who is a professor of Computer Science and well known for his contributions in multiprocessor computing and scheduling techniques. Another page exists with the title Ishfaq Ahmad which is for a renowned physicist. I had named the new page Professor Ishfaq Ahmad, but somebody removed the word professor indicating that it is not part of the name. Now I see an error message that the title of the page is not unique and another page exists with the same title. Please let me know how to handle naming of this new page. Thanks

Hi Zmunir, I have rename your draft article and you can find it here - Draft:Ishfaq Ahmad (computer science professor). "Services section" is not needed. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 14:45, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
"Ishfaq Ahmad is an IEEE Fellow" meets WP:PROF #3 - in fact #3 uses IEEE Fellow as the example. This should have been simply accepted. Legacypac (talk) 15:50, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello. This is in reference to the submission for CAN Capital, which was rejected because the "references do not adequately show the subject's notability." The reviewer specifically said that there should be "significant coverage into them, not the industry in general."

I've closely reviewed Wikipedia's notability guidelines and I would argue that there at least 8 sources (of 24 sources total) that meet the community's definition of notability. These sources, which are clearly referenced on the draft page, include:

  • "Dan DeMeo's CAN Capital Reinvents Financing for Small Business". Forbes. https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucerogers/2014/02/11/dan-demeos-can-capital-reinvents-financing-for-small-business/#61d585a62bf4
  • "Capital Access Network Raises $30M From Accel To Loan Small Businesses Working Capital – TechCrunch". TechCrunch. https://techcrunch.com/2012/02/07/capital-access-network-raises-30m-from-accel-to-loan-small-businesses-working-capital/
  • "CAN Capital: Beyond Hyperbole". deBanked. https://debanked.com/2015/12/can-capital-beyond-hyperbole/
  • "Small-Business Lender CAN Capital Replaces CEO, Promotes Sanz". Bloomberg.com. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-11-29/small-business-lender-can-capital-replaces-ceo-promotes-sanz
  • "CAN Capital Resumes Funding". deBanked. https://debanked.com/2017/07/can-capital-resumes-funding/
  • "Gauging Risk, In 24-Hour Increments". American Banker. http://www.americanbanker.com/magazine/121_9/small-business-lenders-risk-monitoring-electronic-payments-system-1041368-1.html
  • "Banks won't lend? Turn to these guys instead". CNNMoney. http://money.cnn.com/gallery/smallbusiness/2014/07/17/alternative-lending-banks/
  • "Forget the Algorithms. Get Me a Loan Broker!". Bloomberg.com. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2014-04-03/alternative-lenders-still-rely-on-loan-brokers

These sources are all legitimate, independent third-party publications with stories that are either specifically about CAN Capital (or as it was previously known, Capital Access Network) or mention CAN Capital multiple times throughout the article. Therefore, I am asking for clarification on why the submission was rejected and what more needs to be done to improve the page. Thank you for the community's time.

I would like to know if the following actions I have taken regarding a redirect issue with the title of my draft page are proper. I am also putting a copy of this on the talk page of the article for the benefit of the person who reviews this article, because I am not certain the issues involved will be readily apparent:

1. When I submitted the page for review, I was surprised to see "Warning: The page Tango Argentino (musical) redirects to Argentine tango. Please verify that it is not a copy of this submission and that this page does not need to be moved to a different title." Of course, the similar titles require disambiguation, so something like that would naturally show up.

2. The problem arose when I examined the page Argentine tango. There is an anchor in the wiki markup which I believe is causing a redirect with my draft page. The anchor appears on the following line in the page: In 1983, the dance show Tango Argentino, staged by Claudio Segovia and Hector Orezzolli, opened in Paris, France

3. The crux of my question is this: After looking through the page Argentine tango, I could find no reason for the {{Anchor|Tango Argentino (musical)}}. Therefore, I removed it. It does not seem to have affected the function of the page. If I acted improperly, please let me know.

4. I did check the history on the page and {{Anchor|Tango Argentino (musical)}} has been present on the page for some time. In my opinion it is a result of a copy and paste from another site that had the anchor imbedded for another purpose.

At any rate, if my actions were improper, please let me know. cc'd to talk page for the reviewer's benefit.

Hi there! I'm looking for some help to understand why this submission was declined, and what can be done to bring it up to WP standards. It looks like there were a couple of earlier submissions from someone with interest in the topic. I've gone through the article, cleaned it up, and also added references to well-known, credible sources with millions of daily views. But it looks like it was declined again.

I don't want to spam WP with article submissions, but I do believe this is notable, and it's sponsored by a reputable open-source organization (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Software_Foundation). There is in fact a link at the bottom of that page to an void page where this article can go.

Thanks for your help and advice!
