06:11:09, 2 August 2022 review of submission by Brakshit23[edit]

Hello Dear reviewer, revision user. Govind Dholakia is one of the people's person in the diamond industry of india. Top institute of India like ISRO, IIM-A, IIT-B, Indian Railway Institute and renown university ask him to visit them and give insight over his journey in industry and his social work. He is not a person of marketing he is the person of people at large in gujarat. He makes Solar village, committed to serve the people of Gujarat. He wants to give it back to society.

i don't know who earlier attempted to make page for him or start article for him. their writing i am not aware their choice of words i am not aware , who were there i am not sure. i am a proud citizen of Surat and we do hear him in college lectures and social gatherings i feel sad about people not able to read about him, know about him,

i don't take it personally what other wiki community members say, tag and rejects , they might be right but not 100% right. with good collaboration we can create bridge for people to reach right people and i as an individual want to be that bridge builder. i am also working over such other articles by which i can empower such articles and nake it more visible for people.

i have tried all mode and references of IIM IIT and prominent news paper like times of india, business standard, economic times being ignored. please help.

@Brakshit23: I'm not sure I quite follow what you're saying, but that doesn't matter — this draft has been rejected, and won't be considered further. If you wish to plead your case, you need to do so with the reviewer who rejected it. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 08:17, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
hello Mate, see i am trying to do what they are indicating, improving on those lines, trying to make it inline with wiki policies but still they find irrelevant. Requested them to relook, reconsider after change but no they have their very right opinions.. which i do respect but sometimes they do upset me. Brakshit23 (talk) 10:34, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Brakshit23 The only thing that you can do now is provide evidence that the reviewer grossly erred or violated policy, neither of which I think is the case- or show that the situation has changed since the rejection. If you can't show that, there's nothing more you can do other than revisit it when the situation changes(sources arrive in the future showing notability). 331dot (talk) 10:53, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dear 331d0t, i am not looking at other bcz while showing other's error you waste your time and work is still stuck. if you want to look at edits from 2022 Feb onwards many improvements are there , direct mentions are also there but failing what sort of mentions you are requiring? agree on passing mentions but how about the direct one? if someone will check thoroughly you get idea of what i am writing and trying to convey. You need prominent mentions i am not sure your country is having news paper times of india economic times divya bhaskar. Business related sourcing partner DeBeers but reviewers not finding it write.
Thus, here i sought for help which can help me to improve more on this article. and shift it to main space of article. i have seen many articles they have more marketing content or as similar as my draft they have content , website ref are same issue is they have regular article. here i am not able to generate that hurts. i not blaming other or doubting others but unable to understand the POV. Brakshit23 (talk) 11:44, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

i am now updated references for the given Draft article & few changes on draft. For notability as well made changes. Please have a look. Brakshit23 (talk) 11:03, 3 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Brakshit23 I've consolidated your post to here- please do not make additional sections and edit this existing section. Please read other stuff exists- the existence of other similar content does not mean that yours is permitted. It could be that this other content is also inappropriate. As this is a volunteer effort where people do what they can when they can, it is possible for inappropriate content to get by us. There are many ways that could happen. We can only address what we know about- if you would like to help out, feel free to identify this other marketing content you have seen for possible action. We could use the help.
Your changes are insufficient to establish notability. Again, the draft was rejected and will not be considered any more. 331dot (talk) 11:09, 3 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Montecampo: did you read the decline note?

Wahab98 Your drafts have been rejected and will not be considered further. Upcoming films generally do not merit articles. See the notability criteria for films. I suggest that you wait until the film is released, or you must show that there is something very unusual or noteworthy about the production itself (see Rust (suspended film) for an example). There doesn't seem to be. 331dot (talk) 14:08, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Before writing this page i read a lot about this person, i used to hear his podcast and i also read last both rejection about this page. Unfortunately I couldn't find a lot of resources about him but i see his IMDb rank is 295. So he deserve this wiki page, i collected all related data related to him from different wiki sources.

@Shirinsharmin: nobody 'deserves' a Wikipedia page, and certainly not on the basis of something like IMDb ranking. This draft doesn't cite a single source that would count towards GNG notability.

07:53:41, 3 August 2022 review of submission by Celeboyz[edit]

Stumbled on this page when going through the headies award, Nigeria's most prestigious music award, and then I saw the subject, in her category, they are all portable in the Nigeria music industry and have done something in their career that’s quite significant, when I went through the page I found out I can improve on the page and based on its creator that either lacks neutrality or perhaps fails COI and made it look like UPE according to which I can’t say

in my opinion, I think the subject could be considered for re-review or suggestions

01:59:49, 4 August 2022 review of draft by Senpei[edit]

Hello, please let me know what the criteria is for "reliable sources." One of the sources came from Newsweek, which is an accredited publication. I am confused as to what media I should include. Please clarify. Thank you.

Senpei (talk) 01:59, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Senpei: you should probably ask the reviewer directly; I couldn't see anything too obviously wrong with the referencing. (Except to say that, per WP:RSP, Newsweek is no longer considered categorically reliable, although to me this particular article seems okay, and I don't think that would have been the reason for declining in any case.) -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 05:51, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

06:47:19, 4 August 2022 review of submission by Zohaib Alee[edit]

This article is an entity of Neo News which is already published on Wikipedia. This article is about one of its main show "G SARKAR". The program does not have any articles which could state exactly about the program. That's why I am not able to reference it properly. I have also attached some links about the discussions in the program. The show is also available on YouTube and Facebook. Zohaib Alee (talk) 06:47, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Zohaib Alee: this draft has been rejected, and you've just explained why that is. Therefore, what is your question? -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 06:56, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, my bad. I thought you asked me why I want my article to be published. Can you please explain me where I am doing wrong and how should I reference it properly? So it can be published on the website. Zohaib Alee (talk) 07:30, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
By your own contention, it cannot be referenced properly, because, as you say, there are no appropriate sources available to demonstrate notability. Hence, the draft has been rejected and will not be considered for publication. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 07:56, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

18:45:40, 4 August 2022 review of submission by Friendly Engineer[edit]

Well my application to have this page posted was denied for lack of reliable sources. I quoted the daily star/express/mail and apparently they're not considered reliable by the person who reviewed my page. So, I've removed the bits including references to those newspapers and have slightly expanded the stuff quoted from Bustle (the only reliable source on the draft according the the reviewer). Aren't facts taken directly from the website reliable, also what about the stuff about the twitter account? That clearly states the number of followers so surely that isn't a questionable source. Also the reviewer didn't consider media bias fact check a reliable source despite a nature article and study commissioned by researchers into the fake news using it as a way to ascertain what's fake news and what's not. Nature article:

I should disclose that I'm a moderator for the DEFCON Warning system but it's a voluntary position. How can I get this article published? Advice would be welcome thank you.

Friendly Engineer (talk) 18:45, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is my first page so I'd appreciate constructive feedback thanks. Friendly Engineer (talk) 18:49, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also if the subject isn't worthy of a wikipedia page can you please tell me how to move it back to my sandbox so it doesn't get deleted because I'm kind of proud of the work I've put into it and don't want it to disappear into nothing Friendly Engineer (talk) 18:51, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Firstly, the reliability or otherwise of sources is a matter of community consensus, not individual opinion. If you look at WP:RSP, you will see that The Express has been deemed generally unreliable, and the Daily Star and The Mail are actually deprecated. So the reviewer was right to discount those.
Secondly, we need to distinguish between sources that are factually correct and reliable, and can therefore be used to support article contents; and ones that are independent of the subject, and can therefore contribute towards notability per WP:GNG. If an organisation says on their own website (or, at a pinch, their Twitter feed) that their CEO is Jane Doe, we can usually take that as read; similarly, if they say they are HQ'd in Singapore. (If they say they're the leading organisation of their kind in the world, we certainly cannot take just their word for it!) But the point is, however many times you cite their website to support such facts, this does nothing to establish their notability; for that, we need independent and reliable secondary sources.
Finally, thank you for disclosing your connection with the subject. I will post a message on your own talk page which gives instructions for how to disclose this more formally and permanently (this thread will be archived soon), and how to manage the conflict of interest arising from this.

Okay, that's still not a question, but at least we can get started now.
Firstly, your draft was declined, not rejected. This is an important distinction, as it means you can continue working on it, and resubmit when it has been improved.
Secondly, as much as it would give me pleasure to accept a new article, this draft isn't yet ready for that. Don't be discouraged, though; just continue working on it.
Of course, in order for any draft to have a chance of acceptance, it must demonstrate that the subject is notable enough to warrant a place in a global encyclopaedia. This is mostly a question of the quality and quantity of sources: please see the guideline at WP:GNG. Your draft was found lacking in this respect, so you will need to find and cite more and/or better sources.
The draft must also be written in a way which clearly and succinctly describes the subject and explains its significance. Again, your draft needs more work in this area.

Rishit.kumar.kundu You don't ask a question, but your draft was rejected, meaning that it will not be considered further. Wikipedia is not a place to tell the world about your book.

Can you please help me with my draft

Shayu.2511 (talk) 12:01, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Shayu.2511: you need to address the reasons why the draft was declined.
The first thing you have to understand is that writing a Wikipedia article isn't a question of you telling what you know about the subject; it's a question of your summarising what independent and reliable sources have said about the subject. So the first thing you need to do is find several such sources, as the sources you have listed so far are not sufficient. See WP:GNG for more detail on what sort of sources are acceptable.
As you go about summarising these sources, you have to cite each source against the information that it supports, so that reviewers and readers know where the information is coming from, and can verify it if needed. This should ideally be done by way of inline citations and footnotes, of which you currently have none. See WP:REFB for advice on referencing.
There are other things to consider also, but these two — namely, notability and referencing — are critical, so deal with them first and foremost. Best, -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 12:22, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request on 10:08:10, 6 August 2022 for assistance on AfC submission by Rayanfds[edit]

hi the above article was not accepted because of "WP:FILM-Lacks critical reception and no reviews from national critics". Actually it is a regional film spoken by only small community of people living in Mangalore-India .These films usually won't make it to national news.So how do i make it get approved?.I added almost all the detailed and citation availabe. Thank you.

Hi @Rayanfds unfortunately, if sufficient sources do not exist to support the film meets Wikipedia's notability guidelines there is nothing you can do to get the article approved. S0091 (talk) 16:33, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am trying to add Oasis Fertility on wikipedia and the platform is not accepting. Its one of the notable hospitals in India and there are many others similar to this that are live. I have submitted at least half dozen of times but its not getting approved.

It really taking lot of stress and pain to convince the wiki team to make this listing live.

Please help us in taking the company live. The company does CSR activities and has one of top3 hospitals in fertility space.

16:18:42, 6 August 2022 review of draft by Rafe1985[edit]

I inserted the references with sources but it still says no sources. The information in the content is all my own with information garnered in my academic years.

Rafe1985 (talk) 16:18, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Rafe1985: it doesn't say "no sources", it says "not adequately supported by reliable sources"; meaning, there are some sources listed, but they're either not enough, or aren't being used in a way that adequately supports the contents. Please see WP:REFB for advice on referencing, including how to create inline citations.
Also, you say "the content is all my own with information garnered in my academic years". This is somewhat problematic, as in order to establish the notability of the subject (per WP:GNG), we need to see what other, independent and reliable published sources have said about it, not (just) what you think about it. -- DoubleGrazing (talk) 17:05, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not sure why my page is being declined due to lack of notability.

A musician is not notable because they associate with other musicians that have articles(not "pages"). For a standalone article about this musician, you must show that they themselves meet the special Wikipedia definition of a notable musician. 331dot (talk) 08:14, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request on 02:52:25, 8 August 2022 for assistance on AfC submission by Trit6611[edit]


My draft got rejected again for insufficient notability. However, I believe that I have fixed the first reviewer's request for proof of the use of the term "disease modifying treatments", "disease modifying therapies", or any other variations of that term by adding eight more examples of the use of that term beyond the scope of "disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs." These other examples included secondary source references of the "disease modifying treatments" term being used in various other medical literature such as HIV/AIDS, ischemic heart disease, and numerous neurological conditions that are beyond the scope of rheumatoid arthritis and have treatment classes beyond the scope of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. Therefore, I was wondering if I could get more guidance on what more I could do to make the article notable enough to be approved. Thank you very much for your help and time!

Bennair The entire draft is promotional. Wikipedia is not a place to merely tell about something and what it does(such as, among other things, listing its press releases). A Wikipedia article must summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about the topic, showing how it meets the special Wikipedia definition of notability- in this case, the definition of a notable organization. The sources you offered are entirely announcements of routine business activities, which does not establish notability. 331dot (talk) 08:11, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

19:39:24, 8 August 2022 review of draft by Notadean[edit]

Hi - this if my first submitted article and I'm actually not sure what I/we can do to convince the reviewer that the topic is appropriate for Wikipedia. There are numerous newspaper articles, including both local coverage and US-national news coverage, of the events discussed and outlined in the draft article, including both factual primary and secondary review/opinion articles. The article itself provides the history of an important academic program at one of of the two major universities in Montana, from it's creation in 2000 to it's dissolution in 2019. Over that period, the program trained thousands of students and performed nationally and internationally recognized biomedical research in the area of Neuroscience. In addition, the program was the first Neuroscience training program (undergraduate and graduate level) in the state of Montana, making it an historically important program.

I'm glad to take a stab at revising, but really not sure where to start -- any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Notadean (talk) 19:39, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey @Notadean! The first thing I notice while looking at the draft is that there are a lot of completely unsourced paragraphs. For example, the history section doesn't have any references. In general, you should try to make sure that at least every paragraph has an inline citation that supports it.
You can also try to look at similar articles to see how they are laid out. If you look at Department of Journalism, City University and Department of Law, University of Calcutta, you can see they are much shorter and just summarize the information. >>>; 19:52, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ingenuity I would gently suggest that when you advise someone to look at other articles as a model, that you suggest they use those classified as good articles, to reduce the odds they will pick one that is not a good example. 331dot (talk) 20:00, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Notadean (ec) A Wikipedia article about a university department should summarize what independent reliable sources with significant coverage have chosen on their own to say about it, showing how it meets Wikipedia's special definition of a notable organization. It sounds like it could be notable, so you are partway there, but the sources and article content are the issue. Most of your sources seem to be either primary sources, which do not establish notability, or news reports that mention the department. What are your three best non primary sources?

Hello reviewer, I am trying to submit my article 'Rolling Line' article for creation however I am having trouble with its acceptance due to lack of 'reliable sources'. This is not my first time publishing articles for Wikipedia as I have successfully published the article: 'Burnett_railway_bridge' however the article 'Rolling Line' article is about a vastly different topic in which the sources.

I have attempted to use secondary sources to achieve a neutral point of view, although due to the nature of the topic (being a video game) most sources would appear as if they were a promotion of the game. In spite of that, I had tried to use articles which wou I had only referred to primary sources when regarding the development of the game and gameplay elements.

Please let me know how I can resolve this problem and perhaps which articles would be the best for citing. Cheers
