What is Notability?
Ambox ?.svg
If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to satisfy the inclusion criteria for a stand-alone article.

Thank you for using the Article Wizard!

Your proposed topic is not notable enough to have a standalone article. However, some topics may become notable in the future if they receive substantial attention in reliable sources. If this is the case, you can write an article about the subject at that point in time. Some topics are best covered by expanding existing articles. We encourage you to continue to participate in the project in other ways, such as working on improving existing articles.

Good sources
1. have a reputation for reliability: they are reliable sources

2. are independent of the subject

3. are verifiable by other editors

Sources are (nearly) everything

Your topic might be notable, but without good references, nobody else can review it and agree with you, or verify the information in your article. Most articles fail because they do not have enough sources of the right kind to establish notability and support the claims in the content. Check out the Wzard's sources page again, or read more about Reliable sources.

  • Look for more sources! Use an Internet search engine, or go to your local library as many Wikipedia editors do.
  • Remember that not every subject in the world meets the notability criteria – some that don't might do so in future, and some (probably) never will.
  • Remember that not every subject meeting the notability criteria is encyclopedic – items such as FAQs, video game guides, memorials, instruction manuals, directories, list of links, advertising, self-promotion, and dictionary definitions are not encyclopedic. See What Wikipedia is not.
  • If you're unsure whether your sources are sufficient, or how to write from a neutral point of view, ask at the Teahouse, our friendly, informal place for getting help, or click the blue button above to get help online.
  • If you're unable to find the sources to support an article, you could post a request at Wikipedia:Requested articles.
