Request on 12:39:42, 17 November 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Ivor Speedwell[edit]

I would like help in knowing what kind of sources would be appropriate to make this draft article about Reginald Paul acceptable for publication. Much of the information I have about concert performances comes from concert flyers, posters or programmes, not published sources. The feedback from composers on his performances is in original unpublished letters. Some of the information could be referenced by the obituary of Reginald Paul written by his colleague Michael Head, and published in the Royal Academy of Music Magazine (No 207, Spring 1975). Apart from that, I have found a number of mentions on websites, for example in articles about other musicians with whom he played (Suggia, Forbes, Stratton, etc), or listings of concerts (e.g. the 1940s National Gallery concerts). There is also a mention of his Decca record of Walton's piano quartet on a Japanese website (the description and references of the record are in English). I'm not sure which if any of these would be appropriate as references. I would be grateful for any suggestions for making the article publishable.

Ivor Speedwell, my first issue was that there was in text citations, but no reference list with the full details at the end - see WP:ADR for information on how to do this.
The main rule for sources is that they should be verifiable, so should have been published. However, if they are published somewhere, how obscure the publication is doesn't really matter, unless more accessible alternatives exist for the same info. They also don't have to be in English. ~~ OxonAlex - talk 16:24, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

Request about RfC closure[edit]

There is an RfC present here which needs to be closed as commenting time has been elapsed. I request you to please close it with a decision as its no closure is leading to the addition of the content under dispute by it. U1 quattro TALK 18:12, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

U1Quattro. Apologies, I'm currently a bit busier than usual with uni work. Could you list it at WP:ANRFC#Requests for closure please, or ask another uninvolved user. ~~ OxonAlex - talk 16:29, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I will list it there.U1 quattro TALK 17:29, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Alex,

You had moved one of the pages I created to draft space due to insufficient citations and references. I have now updated all the information which can be verified through the cited links.

I would be very much grateful to you if you could publish this page after you review it.

Draft : Rinosh George

Thanks in advance.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!
