I have written an article in English for Wikipedia about a musician. In my first submission, I did not work hard on referencing, because I wanted reviewers to read and comment on all shortcomings. So I got a comment saying you should do citation (which I knew already). He even wrote that the article seems very promoting! (This one was interesting. He probably got this idea because it was a prevailing article with poor referencing.)

So for the second submission I spent a considerable while and improved the article. I gave references for all information I had used. The result became a nice article, I believe. After the second submission, another reviewer has commented: are there any links between the author of the biography and the subject? They can see which sources I have used. So I don't understand why they have this doubt.

I am confused now. I am not sure what to do to show them I am not promoting someone and I am just writing about an artist. Long story short, I want my article be approved. Please help me!

  • Would you mind linking to the article you're talking about? It can be very useful for understanding the situtation – arieljannai Apr 30 '18 at 10:32
  • The article is pending. It has not been approved to be accessible for public. – Vivianne Apr 30 '18 at 10:35
  • Is it accessible for registered users? – arieljannai Apr 30 '18 at 10:47
  • About their question - maybe they think it's not reliable enough? Any reason to suspect that the biography is biased? – arieljannai Apr 30 '18 at 10:49
  • It is accessible for reviewers. – Vivianne Apr 30 '18 at 10:49
