Archiving the sources[edit]

Hey, can you archive the Sources present on Surendra Prasad Singh Kushwaha. Though, these politicians are notable as per WP:NPOL, the Hindi sources becomes inaccessible after some time, due to broken link or other issues. Admantine123 (talk) 10:49, 9 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Admantine123: It looks like you found IABot yourself. Either manually, or using the IABot are the only ways i know to add archive links. Hope that helps. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 03:36, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question from Magfanforever (01:43, 10 May 2023)[edit]

Hello what do you like about Wikipedia besides editing. --Magfanforever (talk) 01:43, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Magfanforever: Welcome to Wikipedia. Editing is nice, but sometimes i go deep into rabbit-holes about certain topics. What areas are you interested in? Maybe i can suggest a few wikiprojects that you can join.
I've left you a message on your talk page. Go through some of the links when you find the time. I'd suggest that you start WP:TWA to get an idea of how wiki editing works. Happy editing! -MPGuy2824 (talk) 03:35, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, yes probably i did't to fast and i didn't read the topics about how to follow the norms for a good article, thanks for you help and advise is good to know certain topics before precede with the writing. I apreciate you help thank you. Metacontentweb3 (talk) 11:51, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question from Here Comes The Grump (21:02, 12 May 2023)[edit]

Hello. Would it be okay to add some information about Larry before he became an Atlanta Braves player? --Here Comes The Grump (talk) 21:02, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Here Comes The Grump: Welcome to Wikipedia. I'm not sure which Larry you are talking about, so could you please provide a wikilink. In any case, it would be ok to add information provided two conditions are met:
  1. It is encyclopedic (birth place, yes. 6th grade marksheet, no)
  2. you have a good source for it (i.e. not some random person's blog or facebook post)

Question from Metacontentweb3 (18:58, 14 May 2023)[edit]

Hello thank you --Metacontentweb3 (talk) 18:58, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Metacontentweb3: welcome to Wikipedia! It looks like you have some trouble starting off with wikipedia editing the right way. I'd recommend that you start WP:TWA, and read some of the links that AFC reviewers have left on your talk page. If you have any questions, you can ask me. Cheers. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 03:32, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, yes thank you i will read the topics before to procede. to the writing next time, i apreciate your help thanks a lot Metacontentweb3 (talk) 11:54, 15 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Draft EQC D1 2023[edit]

Hey MPGuy2824 you recently moved the page Draft:2023 European Quidditch Cup Division 1 to draft rightfully so but ive since edited a lot and wanted to ask if you can give some feedback. Matthijs1808 (talk) 07:38, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Matthijs1808: I've made some small improvements to the draft. The major problem, currently, is that most of the sources are not independent of the organisation that set up the event. The article is independent, but doesn't cover the subject in depth, since its just a couple of lines. Read WP:GNG: It is one of the fundamental ways that new articles are evaluated. Happy editing! -MPGuy2824 (talk) 08:04, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MPGuy2824 Yeah the big problem is that the sport is still to small to get that noticed. there is at times publicity or press but often there also is not. this makes it a bit difficult. any advise what the best route is? Matthijs1808 (talk) 08:10, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you're sure you've done a thorough search for sources, then you might have to give up on this draft. Hopefully, in a couple of years the sport will get enough of a following for a newspaper (or three) to cover it. I've had to abandon drafts before for lack of sources, so i know the feeling that is felt at the waste of time.
P.S. see if you get anything usable when you search for the winning team. Maybe a newspaper in Antwerp covered their win. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 08:21, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not giving up yet. Ima look around what i can find and try contact people if they know anything Matthijs1808 (talk) 08:53, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
P.S. @MPGuy2824 could also participating teams publishing things on their website be useful in this? Matthijs1808 (talk) 09:05, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Such sources might be useful if they contribute information that was not present in other refs, but they wouldn't contribute to the article's notability, since they aren't independent of the subject. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 09:08, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Draft:Ufa University of Science and Technology[edit]

MPGuy2824, please, review the page Draft:Ufa University of Science and Technology that you have moved to draft. Ruslan Sharipov (talk) 19:30, 19 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Did a quick glance, it looks ok. I'd prefer if it goes through WP:AFC. To help the AFC reviewer, you can choose the best WP:THREE references and mention them in a new section of the draft's talk page. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 05:40, 20 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since you are a new page reviewer. I don't know why my article Nilkamal Singh was nominated for delition.[1] It has a lot of reliable sources from important news sources.Articles about less notable Bhojpuri singers like Priyanka Singh is there. This guy has sung hundreds of song,yet, a newcomer joining Wikipedia 28 days ago nominated Nilkamal Singh for delition, despite having 15+ sources and more available on internet, which will be added by me after expansion in future. Admantine123 (talk) 07:09, 20 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Admantine123: A few points:
  2. It doesn't matter how old a wiki user's account is. What matters is whether their argument (for deletion) makes sense.
  3. Quality is more important than quantity when we are talk about sources for a wikipedia article. The sources have to be independent, reliable, and talk about the subject in-depth (e.g. the Times of India references don't meet the in-depth criteria). Since, this article has many references, you should choose the best WP:THREE and add them as a list to your comment on the AfD.
  4. You can continue expanding the article while the AfD is going on, but i'd suggest that you only add any sources that talk about the guy for more than 2-3 sentences. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 07:28, 20 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Signpost: 22 May 2023[edit]

Regarding an edit conflict on the article "Rattan Lal Kataria"[edit]


Two reverts have been made by you on this article and I'd like to address this issue with you personally. The article is a stub per Wikipedia:Stub, and the consensus among most Wikipedians is that a stub article is an article with less than 250 words. However, there is no set amount of words, characters or such made publicly official. Please note that the article doesn't meet the normal encyclopedic requirements to be a non-stub article, and refrain from making further reverts in the edit without any reasoning.


TwistedAxe [contact] 00:07, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Twistedaxe: We don't call that an edit conflict, but i get your point. In this case, I didn't realise that someone had reverted my removal of the stub tag, which is why i did it again without improvement to the article. Don't worry, I'll leave the stub tag alone for this article. Happy editing! -MPGuy2824 (talk) 02:02, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
