Your submission at Articles for creation: Arrest of Billy Hood (December 14)[edit]

AFC-Logo Decline.svg
Your recent article submission has been rejected. If you have further questions, you can ask at the Articles for creation help desk or use Wikipedia's real-time chat help. The reason left by Scope creep was: This topic is not sufficiently notable for inclusion in Wikipedia. The comment the reviewer left was: It is very well known that you can't take any kind of drugs into the middle east if your seeking work, such that if your caught you will get done for drug traffic. That is a universal law for the islamic societies in the middle-east, so trying to pass something off, particularly when it is almost trope, is really unacceptable. It is not news and has been an iron law for more 100 years. It is a clear WP:BLP1E.

Standard cryptocurrency/blockchain notice[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svgThis is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Due to past disruption in this topic area, the community has authorised uninvolved administrators to impose discretionary sanctions—such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks—on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, expected standards of behaviour, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on these sanctions. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

Hi @David Gerard:, thanks for this notice. I do wish to provide as much information as possible in the cryptocurrency field and try to do it from as much of a neutral point of view as possible. Having reviewed WP:CRYPCUR there doesn't seem to be a standard to follow in terms of guidelines on reliable sources. WP:RS is what I have been following and assumed that any decent-looking WP:SECONDARY sources which significantly cover the topic are considered reliable sources. Is there any more info I can school myself on regarding this? Thanks, GR86 (📱) 11:41, 29 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wikipedia:Notability (cryptocurrencies) should be of use. It's an essay, not an official guideline, but it does a good job setting out the consensus around sources. JaggedHamster (talk) 21:17, 29 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ways to improve StrikeX[edit]

Hello, GR86,

Thank you for creating StrikeX.

I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:

Most of the references appear to be press releases, or by Joe Jowett. We need independent secondary sources.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and begin it with {{Re|Stuartyeates}}. Remember to sign your reply with ~~~~. For broader editing help, please visit the Teahouse.

Delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

HipHopCanada moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, HipHopCanada, is not suitable as written to remain published. Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 23:24, 17 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On 2 November 2022, In the news was updated with an item that involved the article Takeoff (rapper), which you nominated. If you know of another recently created or updated article suitable for inclusion in ITN, please suggest it on the candidates page. Stephen 04:57, 2 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Screenshot overwrite[edit]

I reverted your overwrite of the Everipedia screenshot. An IQ.Wiki screenshot should be a different file name if there is a fair use rationale for including one. VQuakr (talk) 21:51, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Improving the Tezos article[edit]

Hi GR86, I work for Tezos and saw that you recently made an addition to the article. Thank you for that. Since you appear to be interested in the subject, I hoped you may be willing to weigh in on a discussion on the Tezos Talk page. I'd be happy for any feedback and for help implementing the requested changes, as I am not editing directly due to my COI. Thank you, Marko at Tezos (talk) 15:11, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Marko,
Will definitely find time to implement these changes in line with the Wikipedia guidelines. GR86 (📱) 16:09, 23 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks so much, GR86! Looking forward to your input. Marko at Tezos (talk) 11:55, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
