Mpura's date of birth!

I've added a very much reliable in the form of a YouTube video which confirms his date of birth. If you watch the video of him and the Kwenyama Brothers titled "Impilo Yami Sandton", you'll discover that at the end of the video, they mention his date of birth (which is 22 September). That video is actually authentic, so I don't see how that's an unreliable source. Even his Instagram page states that he was born on that date. Unless you're looking for a particular source, but so many source verify that's his date of birth! TB Chigz (talk) 06:17, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

@TB Chigz: YouTube is considered a primary source, furthermore we don’t use instances of social media to verify information here. Please see WP:RS.

You can further dispute this on the article’s talk page, if you still think otherwise. Xclusivzik (talk) 08:18, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

It's fine. I'll leave this page alone since I can't find a "reliable" source.

Your review of Draft:Nikita Kering

I personally worked with article creators to wikify the subject. And this was done after the last review. Kindly go through the editing history. I don't see any basis for declining the submission. HandsomeBoy (talk) 08:22, 6 December 2021 (UTC)

Hi, yes I’ve responded on the Draft regarding this. Xclusivzik (talk) 09:35, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
An article does not have to be perfect before it is accepted, there is also nothing stopping the reviewer from making the needed changes especially when it is minimal. While I agree with the previous declines, the last decline by you is very discouraging especially for the new editors involved. You can always remove the YouTube link, edit the minimal peacock sentences before accepting the article (they aren't even native speakers!). I have created more than 400 articles on Wikipedia, and for me, its current state is better than numerous articles in mainspace. HandsomeBoy (talk) 12:49, 6 December 2021 (UTC)

The article isn’t bad at all and the subject is notable. Tbf I was leaning on accepting the article myself. But if you say reviewers can make minimal changes such as peacock terms and remove unreliable/spam links then I’d be glad to review it once more if it’s re-submitted.

Thank you!HandsomeBoy (talk) 11:19, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

My article Abaasa

Hello, I would like to air my disappointment over how many of the articles I've created or tried to improve, have always been tagged. I sufficiently understand the whole notability issue and citations but I think this particular issue is used to stifle worthy people to be on wikipedia. I dont have any conflict here, I've created articles for the last 3 years but it seems wikipedia just favours politicians over other even more popular individuals of society!, all my articles about politicians in my country have never had a problem, problem comes when I try creating an article outside politicians, there all sorts of tags come up, for real its discouraging. I want you to know that in our case in Uganda, artists usually have limited newspaper coverage, it's a hustle, they have to pay to appear anywhere, the few that do write about them are those we cite!, otherwise, the only sources we find are what we include. For real am starting to think the guidelines limit many individuals especially in countries that that dont fully appreciate print media. We lockout individuals worthy of mentions on wikipedia. Otherwise thanks for yo work but am completely not happy at all!! Alvinategyeka (talk) 07:37, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Alvinategyeka Hi, there’s no favouring anywhere it’s just a matter of a subject being notable and appearing in reliable sources. If you create an article on someone who’s not notable or one that needs improvements, it’s going to be tagged for improvements. You as the author should improve the article to dismiss the concerns. Xclusivzik (talk) 09:01, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Ok thanks. Alvinategyeka (talk) 09:03, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Pleasure. Happy editing! Xclusivzik (talk) 09:09, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

El Payo (record producer)

Why was the article El Payo (record producer) nominated for speedy deletion? Motlatlaneo (talk) 14:40, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

Motlatlaneo El Payo doesn’t qualify for a stand-alone Wikipedia article. He didn’t meet WP:GNG and WP:NMUSIC. Xclusivzik (talk) 17:46, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

Young TeTeJohnwiki919 (talk) 19:30, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

Hello Xclusivzik,

Thank you for looking over my article. It says my article was declined because: "This submission's references do not show that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia article—that is, they do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject." However, I provided multiple examples of the subject being interviewed by various independent outlets. In all of those interviews, which include website, podcast and radio outlets, she was the subject of the interview, no just a "passing mention." The radio interview was with one of the biggest hip-hop stations in Atlanta, Ga. One of the YouTube outlets who interviewed her has over 1 million subscribers. Please advise.

Johnwiki919 we don’t use instances of interviews, they’re considered unreliable. Furthermore majority of the sources don’t seem to show how the subject meets WP:GNG as they’re just download links. Please use 4 tildes, i.e 4 of these (~) when writing on talk pages so people can reply to you easily. Xclusivzik (talk) 21:04, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

December 2021

I'm here to let you know that I have removed your {{Notability}} and {{Unreliable sources}} tags on Moneoa, if you think otherwise please explain to be what it is that made you mark it as poorly sourced and please DO NOT refer me to any 'Wikipedia guide' page Motlatlaneo (talk) 18:16, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

Motlatlaneo, the source you cited to verify her DOB isn’t reliable. Xclusivzik (talk) 16:30, 20 December 2021 (UTC)

Help with sources

Hi Xclusivzik,

Hope you are doing well.

You have marked Scorz for deletion, I've sent some arguments on the deletion discussion page and also added new secondary sources. The only primary sources were there ones from Armada Music website (record label Scorz is signd to) I believe? I've just replaced them. Could you check it and give me some feedback? Thanks! AnderNigro (talk) 18:26, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

AnderNigro, looks like Richard3120 basically summed up everything for you regarding the sources at the Afd discussion. Xclusivzik (talk) 16:24, 20 December 2021 (UTC)

Autopatrolled granted

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi Xclusivzik, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the autopatrolled right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. However, you should consider adding relevant wikiproject talk-page templates, stub-tags and categories to new articles that you create if you aren't already in the habit of doing so, since your articles will no longer be systematically checked by other editors (User:Evad37/rater and User:SD0001/StubSorter.js are useful scripts which can help). Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! – Joe (talk) 15:09, 18 December 2021 (UTC)

In need of aid

Hi @Xclusivzik, I've been around for some time now but I fail to understand one if not two things.

  • How does one know which sources are reliable and which ones are not?
  • How do I adequately write an article in a Wikipedia manner?

I'm asking the latter since you stated on Blxckie that the article is poorly written. Motlatlaneo (talk) 21:01, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

@Motlatlaneo: I notice that you oftenly cite unreliable sources i.e interviews. Please note that instances of interviews are considered unreliable here, as the subject can say whatever he/she pleases. Also where did you get Blxckie’s date of birth from because none of the cited sources mention it? Xclusivzik (talk) 22:53, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

@Xclusivzik: I somehow might have forgotten to Cite sources (which may also be unreliable) that states his birthday, I found on multiple sites like famousbirthdays using keywords "Blxckie biography" on search engines. I was afraid of citing unreliable sources.

By the way, maybe you might have noticed but the open discussion for Blxckie deletion is undergoing. Motlatlaneo (talk) 23:16, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

@Motlatlaneo: You mention “famousbirthdays”, it’s not a reliable source at all. You must remove information that isn’t supported by a reliable source or shouldn’t put it in the first place. Xclusivzik (talk) 12:12, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
