Instructions for nominators[]

Create a subpage for your new DYK suggestion and then list the page below under the date the article was created or the expansion began or it became a good article (not the date you submit it here), with the newest dates at the bottom. Any registered user may nominate a DYK suggestion (if you are not a registered user, please leave a message at the bottom of the DYK project talk page with the details of the article you would like to nominate and the hook you would like to propose); self-nominations are permitted and encouraged. Thanks for participating and please remember to check back for comments on your nomination (consider watchlisting your nomination page).

If this is your first nomination, please read the DYK rules before continuing:
Official DYK criteria: DYK rules and supplementary guidelines
Unofficial guide: Learning DYK

To nominate an article[]

Read these instructions completely before proceeding.
For simplified instructions, see User:Rjanag/Quick DYK 2.
Create the nomination subpage.

Enter the article title in the box below and click the button. (To nominate multiple articles together, enter any or all of the article titles.) You will then be taken to a preloaded nomination page.

Write the nomination.

On the nomination page, fill in the relevant information. See Template:NewDYKnomination and {{NewDYKnomination/guide}} for further information.

  • Not every line of the template needs to be filled in. For instance, if you are not nominating an image to appear with your hook, there is no need to fill in the image-related lines.
  • Add an summary e.g. "Nominating YOUR ARTICLE TITLE for DYK" and click Save page.
  • Make sure the nomination page is on your watchlist, so you can follow the review discussion.

In the current nominations section find the subsection for the date on which the article was created or on which expansion began (or, if a new Good Article, the date on which it became a GA), not the date on which you make the nomination.

How to review a nomination[]

Any or who was not involved in writing/expanding or nominating an article may review it by checking to see that the article meets all the DYK criteria (long enough, new enough, no serious orial or content issues) and the hook is cited. Editors may also alter the suggested hook to improve it, suggest new hooks, or even lend a hand and make s to the article to which the hook applies so that the hook is supported and accurate. For a more detailed discussion of the DYK rules and review process see the supplementary guidelines and the WP:Did you know/Reviewing guide.

To post a comment or review on a DYK nomination, follow the steps outlined below:

If there is any problem or concern about a nomination, please consider notifying the nominator by placing {{subst:DYKproblem|Article|header=yes|sig=yes}} on the nominator's talk page.

Frequently asked questions[]


This page is often backlogged. As long as your submission is still on the page, it will stay there until an or reviews it. Since ors are encouraged to review the oldest submissions first (so that those hooks don't grow stale), it may take several weeks until your submission is reviewed. In the meantime, please consider reviewing another submission (not your own) to help reduce the backlog (see instructions above).

Where is my hook?[]

If you can't find the nomination you submitted to this nominations page, it may have been approved and is on the approved nominations page waiting to be promoted. It could also have been added to one of the prep areas, promoted from prep to a queue, or is on the main page.

If the nominated hook is in none of those places, then the nomination has probably been rejected. Such a rejection usually only occurs if it was at least a couple of weeks old and had unresolved issues for which any discussion had gone stale. If you think your nomination was unfairly rejected, you can query this on the DYK discussion page, but as a general rule such nominations will only be restored in exceptional circumstances.

  • @Narutolovehinata5: the page creator has added content, but much of it is in pidgin English. I suggest they apply at WP:GOCE for help with English grammar and spelling. Yoninah (talk) 01:17, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg @Mortee: The copy I requested has been completed, have your concerns been addressed? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 23:01, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Hmm. Narutolovehinata5 it's certainly a lot smoother now, so I feel a bit bad for having brought out the 'nope' cross. I see it's tagged as reading like a résumé, which I'm not sure is fair. The article's still quite thin, but if someone wants to review this and press ahead with a DYK, I won't stand in the way. › Mortee talk 23:06, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Noted. I can do a partial review at the very least: new and long enough, the nominator is QPQ-exempt, adequately sourced and Chinese references accepted AGF, no close paraphrasing found, and so on. I'll leave the hook and article prose issues to another reviewer, but I would suggest that the hooks be rephrased (which isn't really that hard to do to be honest). Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 23:26, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg New reviewer here. I copyed the article to remove the resume tag. Honestly, there's not much here. Does the fact that she sang a few songs make her notable? As I'm unable to read the Chinese sources, I am unable to verify her notability per Wikipedia guidelines. Neither of the two proposed hooks are in the article. Yoninah (talk) 20:44, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment: The nominator has not ed in the past 10 days. They have also posted similar articles (see Shuang Sheng) with similar notability and grammatical issues. I'm inclined to take this to AFD if the nominator doesn't respond soon. Yoninah (talk) 14:34, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Philippine Constitutional Convention of 1971

"The delegates to the Constitutional Convention who were deemed anti-marcos like Napoleon Rama, Voltaire Garcia, Teofisto Guingona, Jose Nolado, Bren Guiao, and Jose Concepcion were also detained." Duka (2008) Struggle for Freedom p. 307

  • ALT1: ... that the Philippine Constitutional Convention of 1971 was rocked in May 1972 when a delegate exposed a bribery scheme in First Lady Imelda Marcos was implicated, alongside 13 others? "In May 1972, before all the assembled members of the Convention, Quintero unexpectedly made a public disclosure that the media called a 'bombshell'. He had been receiving, he said, money in envelops, amounting to over P11,000 which almost certainly came from Marcos' wife. He set all the envelops aside, waiting for the right time for him to speak out. 'I want to do the correct thing,' he said." - http://www.bantayog.org/quintero-eduardo-t/

"On that day, delegate Eduardo Quintero of Leyte ... revealed that he and a number of fellow delegates had been receiving money from Marcos.... By his account, Quintero received envelopes containing money that were supposed to have come from the First Lady." - Magno (ed.) Kasaysayan. p. 133

  • ALT2: ... that oppositionist delegates in the Philippine Constitutional Convention of 1971 tried several times to add provisions disallowing Ferdinand or Imelda Marcos from staying in power after 1973? "Even as the law calling fro elections for the convention was being deliberated in Congress, anti-Marcos politicians tried to incorporate a 'Ban the Marcoses' provision.... Thereafter, anti-Marcos delegates to the convention tried to build the 'Ban Marcos' provision into the charter they were drafting." (The next two paragraphs detail the Rama resolution and the Manglapus committee resolution.) - Magno (ed.) Kasaysayan. p. 132
  • Reviewed: Chang and Eng Bunker, Nominated on July 18
  • Comment: DYK Check shows 11707 characters; Created 4 days ago; Made this myself, but also made sure Earwig's Copyvio Detector shows copyvio problems are "unlikely". I even tried to paginate the references I used for the specific facts. This is my first DYK nom, so I shouldn't need to QPQ review, but I reviewed Chang and Eng Bunker anyway. :D

Created by Alternativity (talk). Self-nominated at 07:19, 26 July 2018 (UTC).

Hi. I'll take a look at the unsourced statements as soon as I can - that's probably just a sentence layout oversight on my part, in most cases. I'm not sure how to address redundancies, though. Would you mind pointing me in a more specific direction, redundancies-wise? Thanks again for the review.- Alternativity (talk) 02:35, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Narutolovehinata5. Well, I've shortened the lede section where I suppose there might have been some redundancy, although I've tried to make sure it still serves as a summary of the rest of the article's outline. I've added a more definitive references for the arrested delegates and the rushing of the approval. I've tried to figure out which facts don't have citations yet, but mostly they're covered by the citation at the end of each paragraph, and I didn't want to overcite unnecessarily. If you have any more specfic suggestions, I think I can quickly make specific changes, but I think I covered it all already... I hope? - Alternativity (talk) 00:37, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@Alternativity: Unless the information in the lede isn't repeated in the article body, I'd suggest that you remove the references from the lede as redundant; just keep them in the article text. In addition, I'd suggest that you'd link to either Martial law in the Philippines or to Proclamation No. 1081 during the first mention of "Martial Law". Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 02:06, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Will do when I get to work in a few hours. Although I thought a big part of the point of the lede section was to provide a brief outline the contents of the rest of the article, including major themes/issues? Hehe. Maybe I've been writing ledes wrong all this time. - Alternativity (talk) 02:22, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
I meant the lede looks fine to me as it is right now, what I meant to say that the citations in the lede are unnecessary unless the information isn't anywhere else in the article. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 02:26, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Oh! Okay. Anyway. I did what I could to shorten it, and also linked the first mention of Martial Law to Implementation of Martial law under Ferdinand Marcos, which is the most specific article for the topic in question. I've moved references to outside of the lede section. Personally I'm scared that's going to leave the lede section vulnerable to POV pushing, but maybe I should trust the process a bit more. hehe. Anyway. Cleanup done, as far as I can tell. :D Do tell me if there's anything more I should try. - Alternativity (talk) 05:11, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
I suppose this is too late to request for 21 September? :S
Right now September 21 is already on queue. I suppose I can give a quick review now and then post at WT:DYK if this can still go up for tomorrow. If not, an alternative date could be September 23, which is the date Martial Law was actually announced. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 06:27, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg @Alternativity: Due to the pressing concern, I'm in doubt that this can make it to tomorrow or even on September 23, unless the requested changes are made immediately. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 07:56, 20 September 2018 (UTC) Hm. Yes, I agree it won't make it to Sept 23, not just because of time, but because the offline references are a bit hard to access, and they don't all necessarily contain the information you described. (Will start looking more closely at what's in Philippine Constitutional Convention election, 1970, though. Huh. This might take a while. :S = Alternativity (talk) 17:30, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Symbol question.svg Interesting life, on good sources, no copyvio obvious. - The image is licensed and a good illustration. I am not sure if the first hook matches the article, and think the second lets us think for moment that he was guilty. How about just saying that he was a national hero by ..., or that a stadion is named for him? - Article suggestions: write a lead that is a summary, amd move the water selling detail to the body ;) - Write a caption in the infobox, like the one here? The refs could be in numerical order. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:39, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
Added alt two, might need a bit of rewording. What do you mean by "The refs could be in numerical order"? Also, do you believe I should make a new (short) section for his early life? The water selling stuff doesn't seem to fit well anywhere else. Dat GuyTalkContribs 09:46, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
I think they mean instead of having, say ref 20 and ref 3 (like this: [20][3]), have ref 3 and then ref 20. RileyBugz私に叫ぼう私の編集 15:17, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

5x expanded by Gerda Arendt (talk). Self-nominated at 10:06, 3 August 2018 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg written neutrally, properly expanded, has referencing, QPQ done...ummm...I can't see anything about recent refurbishment in the article...and it'd be better to have dates of restoration than just "recently". How about a hook about some of the performances that have been there? Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 14:17, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
It doesn't have to be quirky. I don't want to reduce a long history to Nazi only. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:12, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
@Gerda Arendt: When you write the hook, please make it "hooky", that is, short, punchy, catchy, and likely to draw the readers in to wanting to read the article. Shorter hooks are preferred to longer ones, as long as they don't misstate the article content. Unfortunately, I don't think the hook right now meets this criterion. Not all hooks need to be a concise summary of the whole article, if anything, hooks focusing on only one aspect are sometime encouraged, as long as it's interesting. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 08:24, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the education. What in "I don't want to reduce it to Nazi alone" did you not understand? In a bio, I won't mention only one negative aspect, even if catchy. (Actually I would mention no negative aspect.) - I will have time for this next week, Debussy's birthday is over, but Bernstein 25 and Vaughan Williams 26 still need work. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:28, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
If you don't like my Nazi theatre suggestion, Casliber above said that a possible alternate hook could involve some of the works that have been performed there. And what I meant when I quoted that rule was your comment "It doesn't have to be quirky", as the hook as it stands is quite bland (it focuses on the restoration part, which isn't exactly that hooky). In addition, the DYK rules don't prohibit negative hooks, unless BLPs are involved. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 08:40, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Repeating: I will have time for this next week. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:46, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
"recently restored for several years" is not idiomatic - change to "recently restored over several years" or rephrase eg as "in restoration for several years", Johnbod (talk) 13:32, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
It has been a week when two more people tried whom I tried to get to recent death, on top of normal work. - The answer is yes, but today is another day with little time. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:12, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

ALT1: ... that the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz (pictured) in Munich, a royal theatre in the 19th century, became the only state operetta theatre in Germany when the Nazi regime cited operettas as particularly suited to connecting people with the theatre arts? Jmar67 (talk) 16:53, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't want to give so much prominence to Nazi ideology. Will look now - finally - at article and hook, sorry for the delay. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:09, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
Some refs and external links added. Combining performances, we could say:
ALT2: * ... that the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz (pictured), built in Munich as a royal theatre for operettas, played Die lustige Witwe as a Nazi State Theatre, and for the reopening after five years of restoration in 2017?
Casliber, do you remember this was open? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:50, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg You need to add its staging in Nazi era to the article. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 01:06, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I knew but forgot. Done now. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:20, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
No hook is promoted right now. ALT2 was suggested. The house has a history of 150 years, and I think it should show a bit, hooky or not. Casliber is the reviewer. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:17, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Yeah I'm sorry about that word, it was a typo that's now been fixed. As for the showing part, that's good to know, but that's what the article is for, a hook should instead emphasize something interesting, fascinating, or quirky about a subject. Yes the building may be 150 years old, but many opera houses are even older than that, so it's not really unusual in the grand scale of things. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 11:19, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Can you please strike, rather than making my comment look silly ;) - Casliber is the reviewer. (How I love it, after more than 1000 DYK, to be told what a hook should do.) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:40, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
DYKs can have more than one reviewer, though, particularly if consensus cannot initially be reached with one. With that said, I'm also interested in what Casliber thinks of ALT2. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 11:44, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
I thought it was interesting enough that it was performed in the nazi era and then now. Not earth-shattering but hooky enough to pique interest....happy to get more opinions without prejudice...Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 14:18, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Reviewed: This is only my third nomination for DYK. So I'm still excempted, although I've reviewed 2 DYKs already (Chang and Eng Bunker and Aya Hirano)
  • Comment: This would be ideal for publication on September 11, the date of birth of former Philippine Dictator Ferdiand Marcos (b, 1917).

Created by Alternativity (talk). Self-nominated at 06:12, 9 August 2018 (UTC).

  • Symbol possible vote.svg Full review to follow, but right now the article is in need of reorganization. The lede is very long, almost as long if not longer than the actual article text. It needs to be changed to a summary, while the other parts could be moved to the body. Some minor copys should also be made (like using emdashes instead of dashes).

Mein Gott, wie schön ist deine Welt

Cover of Kirchenlied

Created by Gerda Arendt (talk). Self-nominated at 14:44, 12 August 2018 (UTC).

Hook eligiblity:

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol question.svg The article is a good one, as Gerda's always are. Clean, well-written, sourced and admirable. I wouldn't expect the image to be chosen for the DYK lead. My only question is on the interesting-ness of the hook. Gerda Arendt, I respect you hugely, but I'm not sure there's a really "hooky" line to be pulled out of this. There doesn't seem to be much unusual about the hymn. Might this be a case where it's better to let the article attract its own admirers, without DYK involved? Of course if others see this as more intriguing than I do, or if there's a more arresting hook option, I'll gladly retract my quibble. › Mortee talk 00:58, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

It's not hooky but to write that song in Nazi Germany is unusual. Also, why not interest general readers in something they'd not normally read? Finally: I believe that we can't repeat the line often enough how beautiful our world is. I wrote the article after singing it ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:11, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
If the unusual-ness comes partly from it being written under Nazism, could the hook be altered to point that out more clearly? The dates are mentioned but I didn't make the connection myself. Perhaps other readers won't either. › Mortee talk 10:27, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
My point: the people who care about such things will make the connection. - I know that mentioning Nazi in a hook gives you 1000 extra clicks, but somehow don't want to do them the honour. Suggestions? Perhaps read Kirchenlied? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:48, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
That's a very fair thought, but I think the hooks do need something extra before they'll be broadly appealing. I'll try to think of an alternative. (And if another reviewer would like to comment on the interestingness of ALT0 and ALT1, please do). Thanks for pointing out Kirchenlied. I see it was featured at DYK already, mentioning the Nazis, so that's another good reason not to mention them here. It would be very close to a rerun. › Mortee talk 12:53, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
ALT2: ... that the 1936 German hymn Mein Gott, wie schön ist deine Welt (My God, how beautiful is your world) takes its title fromis reminiscent of a line inan entry in poet Joseph von Eichendorff's diary?
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg new reviewer needed to decide if this or the original hooks are broadly interesting. › Mortee talk 19:36, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Do you think more readers know Eichendorff than Kirchenlied. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:28, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
No, but I think basing a hymn on a diary entry is more interesting than the name of the book the hymn was published in. › Mortee talk 22:34, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Only that it's not just a name but a program, while I'm not sure that the similarity between incipit and diary note is more than incidental. Both exist, and are similar. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:37, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Ah... if it's just a similarity, and it's not known that the hymn is based on the entry, then my ALT2 is no good at all. I got that from the article, which says "The beginning of the song uses an entry of ...". If it might be coincidental, perhaps I should strike ALT2 and the article could be clearer on that point? › Mortee talk 22:43, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Not after midnight ;) - I didn't even remember the word "coincidental", struggling with subleties of the English language. Could we say "is reminiscent of the diary entry ..."? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:49, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Haha, fair enough. "Reminiscent" sounds like it would be accurate. It'd be nice to have something more direct to say. I won't stop thinking, but I think another opinion would help here. › Mortee talk 22:54, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I meant for the article, - off to bed. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:56, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Absolutely, I understood. Goodnight Gerda! › Mortee talk 22:58, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

New day. Ideas: we could link the years to something for background. It's kind of a protest song. Even without a background, exclaiming that line again and again is unusual. - This conversation is already longer than the article. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:41, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey thanks for the suggestion. I've added the ALT1, and I will soon fix the other issues. JC7V-constructive zone 18:22, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

And I now fixed the rest, thanks for the help. JC7V-constructive zone 18:26, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

I added what you suggested as an 'alt 1', I would like to use that as the hook. JC7V-constructive zone 20:16, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

@Szzuk: Hi Szzuk, thank you for commenting. Do you mean the article itself needs copying for flow or that this DYK statement itself needs copying for flow? If it's this DYK itself that needs those improvements, I just insterted Catriona's suggested wording of the DYK (after I first read your comment). He/she suggested it to me as a ALT 1 but it seems better than any wording that I can come up with. JC7V-constructive zone 20:27, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Women in Iceland

Created/expanded by Yellow.Umbrella (talk), Ipigott (talk), and Frayae (talk). Nominated by Frayae (talk) at 22:58, 7 August 2018 (UTC).

  • Hello, Frayae. Thanks for the nomination; the article is very interesting. It needs some attention for MOS:WTW; while I don't think it's non-neutral for Wikipedia's voice to imply that gender equality is good, as this reflects the balance of sources, we probably shouldn't say that a politician's lectures are amusing, even if a source does. The article uses very extensive quotes, and some fairly close paraphrases, and the English is clear but sometimes slightly non-colloquial. I've been copy-ing it and will do some more. There are a few confusing points.
Some information that is not there and would really improve it (see other "Women in... articles and redirects). It would be entirely acceptable to quote Icelandic-language sources, ideally with the quote added to the citation to make it easier to check.
While it misleadingly fails the automated DYK check, it was moved out of draftspace on the seventh, and so qualifies.
I think the fascinating part of this article is the equal-pay action, which also deserves its own article. I'd suggest a hook that brings it in, such as
....just as initial ideas. HLHJ (talk) 23:29, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Hello, Frayae. It looks as if we do have an article on the 1975 Icelandic women's strike. I've linked to it, and we might want to merge some of the content. The ALT2 hook would still work, but ALT1 seems more suited to the main article. It would be good to expand some other content, too. We might, for instance, include content on the history of women's sufferage, women's property, marriage law, parental leave (is there a father's quota?), proportion of housework done by men and women, alignment of school and working hours, childcare provisions, what professions have severe gender imbalances and how these have changed over time, affirmative action programs... Pre-20th-century history would also be good. HLHJ (talk) 04:36, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi HLHJ. These are all definitely things that should be done, I like both hook ideas you came up with as well. Although the article needs significant expansion, the DYK process is very time limited so I went straight for it. I hope you don't mind too much. — Frayæ (Talk/Spjall) 20:16, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi, Frayae, great infobox! The clock is on the nomination, and it's safely nominated; I don't mind at all, and I don't mind re-reading it. HLHJ (talk) 23:37, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Working Definition of Antisemitism

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol question.svg Created 8 August from redirect. Other creator not mentioned in the nom: Jonney2000. If/when this is promoted, I recommend page protection as this is a controversial topic. I cannot find NPOV in the article, though. Catrìona (talk) 16:34, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Catrìona: thanks for your review. I have now added the inline citations for the direct quotations. Onceinawhile (talk) 07:21, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
The citation refers to the 2011 UCU controversy in the UK and the 2011 AAUP-AJC controversy in the US.[3] You have kindly mentioned the 2018 Labour Party controversy in the UK. I could also add the 2016-18 controversy in congress regarding the proposed Anti-Semitism Awareness Act.[4] That’s already four separate controversies in two countries. The article contains further examples, and more could be added as necessary. Onceinawhile (talk) 20:22, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Here are two further sources: Professor David Feldman, Sub-Report for the Parliamentary Committee Against Antisemitism, 1 January 2015, page 4: "However, the definition itself rapidly became a topic of controversy rather than consensus. The points at issue included what the status of a 'working definition' actually was, whether the working definition was an effective and coherent definition at all, and, finally, controversy dogged the application of the working definition to debate on the State of Israel and its policies. The criticisms have been damaging and the EUMC working definition largely has fallen out of favour."; and The Times of Israel, [5] "Koren’s statement came as confirmation to reports, including by the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Jonathan Arkush, that Russia was the only country blocking the adoption of the definition, which is controversial because it lists some forms of hate speech on Israel as an example of anti-Semitism."
Onceinawhile (talk) 07:21, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Looking at the article again, I notice that it has a "Criticism" section but not a section for its supporters. For such a controversial topic, we should avoid even the appearance of partiality. I don't have enough knowledge of the subject to determine if the hook and/or the article are impartial, so I'm requesting a second opinion on NPOV. Catrìona (talk) 11:51, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
@Catrìona: FYI at Talk:Antisemitism#RFC: Should Wikipedia adopt the Working Definition of Antisemitism?, the user above (Icewhiz) made the same argument re his view that there is no controversy, which was his rationale here for asserting that the hook is not neutral. That RFC is benefitting from wide participaion, so once it has finished it should be possible to assess consensus not just on the RFC question but also on how many other ors share Icewhiz's view that there is no controversy. Onceinawhile (talk) 19:26, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Harry Kupfer

5x expanded by Gerda Arendt (talk). Self-nominated at 22:37, 17 August 2018 (UTC).

  • What's interesting about this? Do stage directors at the KOB not normally stage at Bayreuth? It sounds like something routine. Daniel Case (talk) 03:11, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
Today, yes. Then, it was The exception, someone from East Berlin in Bayreuth. I had the pleasure to see it because a friend who received the ticket after years of waiting didn't want to see that production, because of the stage director. Can't put all that in 200 chars, sorry. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:39, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
Wait until Monday at least, will be away. Bayreuth Festival is like the Olympic Games in opera, - no idea how to communicate that. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:55, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
Any answer to the Olympic Games of opera? I'd argue that whoever doesn't know that will not care about him, and the others don't need explanation. I looked at the achievements of a long life, and believe this is the most outstanding which made him known in the Western world. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:32, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
Right now, as it stands, Daniel is not happy with the current hook, and it might be for the best that a new hook be proposed here. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 15:36, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
Daniel, could you please look again? (Because I'd have a hard time suggesting something I'd think is second-rate.) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:29, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
OK, giving this a brief look before a too-late bedtime ... you mentioned something I hadn't known, that the KOB was in the East. That makes the hook interesting. Can we get it in there? Can we say he was the first or only East German opera director to direct at Bayreuth? Would that work and be supported by sources? Daniel Case (talk) 06:55, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
I'll see, but it may take a few days, RL. We just mentioned Barrie Kosky again, the first Jewish director, well supported, but news from the 1970s are harder to find. I saw the production because my friend wo had waited for years for tickets would not see his staging, nor Chéreau's who had opened the door for things like that to happen ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:12, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Daniel, I looked and found this review which says nothing about any "first" but goes in great detail to his way of interpreting Wagner's work in a psychological approach as Senta's visions and obsessions, which was not wanted by the Wagner traditionalists (and would not have pleased the composer). Trying, but not familiar with the terms, - German Psycho-Drama seems to be something completely different from psychodrama, - is there an English term for what is meant here?

ALT1: ... that when Harry Kupfer, for decades a stage director at the Komische Oper Berlin, was invited to stage Der fliegende Holländer at the Bayreuth Festival in 1978, he presented the work from Senta's psychological situation? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:16, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

For ALT1, I'm not so sure. It seems to be too overwhelming with information. Like the average reader might ask: "who is Stena?" "what do you mean by Senta's psychological situation?", and others to that effect. This hook might possibly work provided the hook is rewritten to state who Senta is, and what the psychological sitatuion was. Also, from what I can tell, the subject of this hook would be about presenting The Flying Dutchman, and I don't really see how the part about the Komische Oper Berlin fits with the rest of the hook, so that might have to go. Perhaps something like "... that when Harry Kupfer was invited to stage Der fliegende Holländer at the Bayreuth Festival in 1978, he presented the work from Senta's psychological situation?" Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 04:09, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
I didn't want to say "the heroine Senta" because she is nor heroic in his staging. The KOB is much more important to mention than the girl.
ALT2: ... that when Harry Kupfer, for decades a stage director at the Komische Oper Berlin, was invited to to direct Der fliegende Holländer at the Bayreuth Festival in 1978, he presented it as a psychological drama? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:15, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Like I mentioned, I'm not sure if the Berlin Opera is really important in the context of the hook since the point is that he wanted to present the opera as a psychological drama. The hook could simply say something like "that when Harry Kupfer was invited to direct...". But I digress and I will leave the final decision to Daniel Case. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:37, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5 and Gerda Arendt: As much as I understand how Gerda wanted to preserve that in the hook, it makes it too long at 206 characters with spaces. But the rest of it checks out, at least to the extent I can read and understand the Die Zeit article. Daniel Case (talk) 15:44, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
We can skip polite "invited".
ALT3: ... that Harry Kupfer, stage director at the Komische Oper Berlin for decades, presented Wagner's Der fliegende Holländer at the 1978 Bayreuth Festival as a psychological drama? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:56, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Mein ganzes Herz erhebet dich

Created by Gerda Arendt (talk). Self-nominated at 13:50, 19 August 2018 (UTC).

  • Style ☑Y, length ☑Y, timescale ☑Y.
  • Hook:
  • I can verify from ref 1 that the hymn may be used to open a Roman Catholic service, but I can't find any source for its derivation from a "French paraphrase" of Psalm 138 in the Genevan Psalter. Can you point me in the right direction?
  • The word "also" in the hook seems redundant
  • Referencing.
  • I've beefed up the referencing a bit and am happy it generally supports the article.
  • Do we mean the 1551 (not 1543) ion of the Genevan Psalter? That appears to be the version at reference 1. Bermicourt (talk) 19:29, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
Looking again, I can't find an exact date for this Psalm paraphrase to enter the Genevan psalter. 1551 is the melody. Commented out the year. This has also no specific dates, just that by 1562, all 150 psalms were complete in the Genevan Psalter. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:13, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
"also" seems not redundant, looking at the origin in the Huegenots, who were prosecuted by the Catholic Church. Perhaps "now also"? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:15, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
I know this may sound picky but, to me, the "also" appears redundant because the sentence doesn't mention what it also serves as. I wonder if auch in German can imply something else which is unsaid, whereas in English it implies something we have mentioned earlier. The nearest we have in English is the wordy "amongst other things" or the obscure inter alia. Why not change "serves also for" to "may be used as", which gets round the problem? Bermicourt (talk) 17:00, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
It doesn't say that it is in the official German Catholic hymnal, - about anything "may be used" in services these days ;) - Trying harder:

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── ALT2: "... that the hymn "Mein ganzes Herz erhebet dich", a paraphrase of Psalm 138 based on the Protestant Genevan Psalter, is also sung by Catholics in Germany?

Jmar67 (talk) 20:19, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Do you mean "in Catholic masses" (because any Catholic can sing it anywhere anyway), and do you want to say "in Germany, Austria and Switzerland"? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:25, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Did not know that GL also used in AT and CH. "in Catholic masses" or maybe "by German-speaking Catholics". I just wanted to get away from the hymnal discussion, which is not germane (!) to the hook. The point is that it is also a Catholic hymn. Trying to help. Jmar67 (talk) 20:57, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Yoninah, this works perfectly! Thank you for your suggested ALT hook! I made one minor adjustment, and that was to change great-grandson to godson.

Hook is short and sourced "To tell the truth, without tax breaks I’m pretty certain we’d be in Canada right now."
QPQ provided
The Squirrel Conspiracy (talk) 00:48, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Symbol possible vote.svg an issue was raised with the hook at WP:ERRORS2 (permalink). It looks like the wording of the hook, which implies the company would up and leave immediately if the tax breaks were removed, does not match the tongue in cheek nature of the conversation from the source. Cage also says in the same interview that "If there were no tax breaks… well the project would probably still go ahead, but a lot less money would be spent on it", which suggests maybe he wouldn't take the Canadian route. Needs some rewording or perhaps an alt hook I think.  — Amakuru (talk) 21:46, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

@Amakuru: There was no tongue-in-cheek. "the project" that would "probably" still go ahead is Heavy Rain. Only after this does he talk about the company as a whole: "To tell the truth, without tax breaks I’m pretty certain we’d be in Canada right now". "now" is referring to 2011, a year after Heavy Rain was published. The interviewer asks "Seriously?" Cage answers "Seriously." Also hard to believe he's being unserious when he goes on to describe the benefits of Canadian tax breaks. I want this hook repromoted. Cognissonance (talk) 00:43, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
No, it can't be stated as a fact. It might not move. Other things may happen. The best you could hope for would be to say that they said they'd move, not that they would. The Rambling Man (talk) 10:13, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
@The Rambling Man: You're moving the goalpost. You were wrong and are now looking for more reasons to disregard my hook. There is nothing wrong with the word "would". It represents a desire to do something. Cage stated his desire to move the company in factual terms. Cognissonance (talk) 10:44, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
No, I'm not. Would does not represent a desire to do something. It means it "would" happen. And that's not guaranteed at all. I'm done here, good luck. The Rambling Man (talk) 10:49, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
Yes, the way the hook is phrased, it sounds like we're saying in Wikipedia's voice that the move to Canada would follow the removal of tax breaks, as surely as night follows day. That is emphatically not what the source says. Cage is simply making a point about the relative advantage that he sees his Canadian competitor enjoying, and how he would seriously consider upping sticks if the French tax breaks disappeared. That's as far as it goes, but we don't know if he would really move under those circumstances. All manner of eventualities and compromises might emerge. So to suggest anything more than that is WP:CRYSTALBALL. I suggest rewording the hook to make it clear that this is something that Cage has said, rather than it being an objective fact.  — Amakuru (talk) 18:58, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
"I would do that" is not the same as saying "I will do that". The first is a statement of possibility, the second is one of certainty. "...according to the founder of the French video game developer Quantic Dream, the company..." defeats the purpose of having a hook. Ruins the flow.

  • Symbol question.svg I formatted the hook to add "(pictured)". However, there is number confusion between "a transcendental number" and "they" — should the end of the hook be "or merely proves it exists"? Yoninah (talk) 21:36, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
I'm not the submitter of this DYK, but in my opinion the meaning would be conveyed by changing the last two words of the hook. You could change "..they exist" to "..such numbers exist". EdJohnston (talk) 21:48, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
@EdJohnston: thanks, I like that. Waiting for the nominator to weigh in... Yoninah (talk) 21:53, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
@Yoninah: @EdJohnston: The singular in "how to construct a transcendental number" is appropriate since in this context one would construct them one at a time, and the plural is appropriate in "they exist" since the proof shows that many transcendental numbers exist, not just one. Whether it says "they exist" or "such numbers exist" doesn't seem immensely important to me, since the meaning of "they" seems clear from the context. I suppose erring on the side of caution one should be explicit and say "such numbers exist." Michael Hardy (talk) 23:14, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Thank you. Restoring tick per RockMagnetist's review. Wait a minute — the review didn't confirm that the five main DYK criteria have been met. Here is a full review: GA approved. New enough, long enough, well referenced, neutrally written, no close paraphrasing seen in online sources. Hook ref verified and cited inline. Images in article and hook are freely licensed. No QPQ needed for nominator with less than 5 DYK crs.
  • Tweaked hook wording:
  • ALT1a: ... that mathematicians do not agree on whether a proof in Georg Cantor's (pictured) first set theory article actually shows how to construct a transcendental number, or merely proves that such numbers exist?

@Alex Shih: By the "creator" do you mean those who created the page, as opposed to the DYK hook? By "nominator", do you mean the person who nominated it for DYK? (That's me.) By "creator/nominator", do you mean the creator _or_ the nominator? Or do you mean it needs both? An earlier posting to my talk page left me with an impression that the issues had already been addressed. Michael Hardy (talk) 20:55, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
@Michael Hardy: I think you meant to ping me, rather than Alex. I meant that someone needs to address the sourcing issues I have raised immediately above Alex Shih's comment. The article creator and you are the people best placed to do this, and the people who have an interest in fixing the issue so that the DYK nomination may move forward. This is entirely separate from the message Yoninah left you nine days ago; these are issues I raised two days previously. Vanamonde (talk) 21:17, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
@Vanamonde93: ok, I think that point is becoming clear. Just to be clear about something else: I am the original article creator, although by now RJGray is to a large extent also the creator. He knows more about the sources and history than I do. Michael Hardy (talk) 22:09, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
@Vanamonde93: Concerning the sourcing issue about which you state: "Indeed, I'm a little confused about how it passed the GA review, because though it's well written and I have no reasons to doubt its accuracy, the second half of "The development of Cantor's ideas" is completely unreferenced." In the GA Review, the issue of references for derivations and examples did come up with respect to the section "The Proofs". This issue is the same as the one you are raising for the second half of "The development of Cantor's ideas" (in this half of the section, I am comparing the derivations in two different proofs). Here is how I handled the issue during the GA Review (next 2 paragraphs I wrote for the GA Review):
Concerning "The proofs": My approach was to stay within the guidelines of WP:Scientific citation guidelines#Examples, derivations and restatements whose first paragraph states:
"Wikipedia is neither a textbook nor a journal. Nonetheless, in mathematics and the mathematical sciences, it is frequently helpful to quote theorems, include simple derivations, and provide illustrative examples. For reasons of notation, clarity, consistency, or simplicity it is often necessary to state things in a slightly different way than they are stated in the references, to provide a different derivation, or to provide an example. This is standard practice in journals, and does not make any claim of novelty.[1] In Wikipedia articles this does not constitute original research and is perfectly permissible – in fact, encouraged – provided that a reader who reads and understands the references can easily see how the material in the Wikipedia article can be inferred. Furthermore, copying extensively from a source with only minor modifications is not normally permitted by copyright law, unless the source has a free license."
After receiving my response, the GA reviewer dropped this issue from his list of issues. --RJGray (talk) 00:43, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
I don't know about that, RJGray. It's fine to simplify a proof, but even so you should cite the original. At this point, a reader who wishes to know where that proof came from has no way to find it, which is the basic purpose of WP:V. I'm not saying you should cite every sentence, but you should cite the proof. You can add explanatory footnotes with the source if required. Vanamonde (talk) 00:58, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

What is the current status of this thing? Is it in a queue to appear under "Did you know . . . ?" on the main page? Michael Hardy (talk) 22:31, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

@Michael Hardy: No, it is not. As I said above, the article needs to have references for all the proofs, to comply with our policy on verifiability. Once the required references have been added, I will place this in a queue. Vanamonde (talk) 01:26, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
@Vanamonde93:I have supplied the references for the proofs. Because Cantor was writing a research article for researchers, he left out simple proofs. To handle this, I did the same as I had done earlier on the proof of his uncountability theorem. I point out that he did not supply a proof and then provided a proof for Wikipedia readers. Of course, I do supply a reference to where he states the result that he does not bother proving. --RJGray (talk) 16:44, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
@RJGray: Okay, I've looked at your changes. They are an improvement, but they do not entirely address my concern. My point is fairly simple; Wikipedia is not a scholarly publication. We collate information; we do not provide new information. As such, if we are presenting a proof, it must be based on a proof published in a reliable source elsewhere. We cannot publish our own proofs, even if the or writing said proof is quite capable of doing so without error. It is possible that Wikiproject Mathematics sees this differently, in which case I'd like to see a link to that, but I cannot see how WP:V can be satisfied any other way. Please don't take this personally; this sort of mixup often occurs when content written and reviewed by ors familiar with a specific topic is brought to wider scrutiny. If you disagree with this, please feel free to request further feedback at WT:DYK. Also, since Michael Hardy has been blocked indefinitely, I'm afraid this falls entirely on your shoulders at the moment. Regards, Vanamonde (talk) 19:32, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the updates. I'm worried about the "single source" tag in the header and the "category" tag at the bottom. We generally do not promote articles that have tags, and removing them without consensus is not allowed. Now, I wasn't the one who added them (courtesy ping to Bbarmadillo and Rosguill, the two that added the tags).
  • Futurist110, do you think you can address these concerns in the following days? I'm open to give you more time, just as long as you can commit to a date so we can come back here and re-review. I really want to see this great piece of work on the main page.
  • Narutolovehinata5, do you have any further advice on how to proceed or any insight on what to do with tags raised in the middle of a review? MX () 23:57, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
From experience, I have removed orange tags without consensus before as long as the issue was resolved, like more footnotes (addressed by adding footnotes) or more references (resolved by adding more citations). I don't really have much experience with one source, but my suggestion could be to try to find another source that discusses the same subject matter, and use that to complement the original citation. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 01:53, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
I added the single source tag. I think it's somewhat self-explanatory: while the article has many footnotes and provides an in-depth overview of the subject, it has only two citations, to different pages of the same article on the website harpweek.com. Given the depth of coverage, it's going to take a considerable amount of work to add citations to other sources such that the article won't be dominated by this one source, although I have no reason to believe that this source is not reliable. signed, Rosguill talk 00:17, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
I have now added several other sources to this article and also added several other categories to this article. What else do I need to do right now? Futurist110 (talk) 00:29, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
I won't object to the {single source} tag being removed at this time, although I will point out that the sections on the 1868 DNC and the Campaign are still entirely reliant on content from HarpWeek. signed, Rosguill talk 00:37, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

ALT0. It's in the history. Originally it was in the text and sourced. I added an image of an appropriate coin and captioned it. And thought what a good DYK it would make. Before I could do my source check prior to GAN another or changed the wording and removed the, presumably inaccurate, source. But not the caption. When it was promoted I actually wrote the ALT before looking at the article - after all, I was the nominator and I hadn't changed it, and I had checked all the sources prior to nomination. I read what I thought was there - probably I was too busy admiring the image and reading the caption to that which supported my preconception. The text, which I clearly didn't read, was/is much blander about the implications of his naked sword. I have just amended the image caption to match. Thanks for picking it up. I am hacked off that I let it through, and alarmed that I was sloppy enough to get it into a DYK nom. Gog the Mild (talk) 23:55, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for the hook suggestion, though I prefer my original proposal.

  • Nice article. I've had a preliminary look at it. It's newly-expanded and Earwig informs me that you have copied the titles of the sources you quote, which seems fine. It will take a while for me to read the sourcing, as it is extensively-referenced. On content, it might be appropriate to mention the hazard to humans (and maybe the obsidian source) in the lede, as it is likely to be of interest to readers.
The sentence construction in the article often requires a reader to remember half a statement through several other clauses before reaching the other half of the idea at the other end of the sentence. I can't find the source I'm looking for here, but there's research like this, which shows that this sort of structure needlessly loads working memory and decreases comprehension.

Apologies, Jo-Jo Eumerus, I have neglected this. I have just done a through copy; I can describe the sort of thing I did and the reasons for it if you want to know. I hope I haven't written in my misunderstandings, but generally the text seemed unambiguous.
I have also added some more images, and requested a contrast adjustment on the otherwise excellent picture of a gryphon. I have not checked all your sources! I will try and check some more. You seem very conscientious, and checking them all is not a requirement. I have added names to the co-ordinate tags, and one of them, for Mullet Island, seems a bit off (see the OpenStreetMap link). You have accurately reflected the source, but it looks like the USGS is wrong. I can e-mail them and ask, unless you would prefer to do so?
There are some bits that I think are a bit too jargony, such as "The domes are formed by rhyolite,[1] which has an alkaline and calcium-poor composition[16] and defines a potassium-rich suite". I couldn't figure out a way to add wikilinks that clarified that, so a bit more in-text explanation might be needed. It's amazing that we have no geothermal field article, but that's by-the-by.

I'm not sure the ages are the best thing to have in the hook.

Problem with these two maps is that they need modifications and that the current map is really the standard for such maps. I've renumbered your ALT hooks, I think that ALT5 might be the most interesting (other than ALT1 which would cause complaints about WP:EASTEREGGs) but not really much more than the currently proposed one. As for the "The domes..." sentence you flagged as jargon, I don't think that such text can ever be plain - this is a natural sciences topic after all.

A salse bubbles carbon dioxide in the Nielsen Field
Thanks, I was pretty sure I'd misunderstand something. Good to have it fixed. I've requested a better map, and failing that will make one following the standard format for mountains, but cropped to the geology. The "Research history" section does a good job of listing what was estimated and how, but some information about why the estimates are different would be good. I've had another go at wikilinking that sentence about rhyolite composition, and requested a QAPF diagram on the linked page, not sure how helpful that would be but it's a start.
I've played with the dimensions of my window, but I can't make the paragraph formatting break. I can't see anything wrong with the markup. I may be missing something; if it's still bad, any details you can give might help. Do you think the salse image would be a better DYK illustration? The photo quality and interest are certainly high, but it's clearly not a butte, so it would need a modified hook.
I think in the DYK context, WP:EASTEREGGs are called "tease" hooks, and are acceptable; Wikipedia:April Fool's Main Page/Did You Know uses only tease hooks. But I could be wrong, and if someone more experienced could comment, please, that would be good. HLHJ (talk) 04:21, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

The Great Depression, the fall of the Weimar Republic, street violence, the Night of the Long Knives, and even the Holocaust are background to what would otherwise be the rather banal story of a short-lived cigarette company. Advice is very welcome. I'd like to add some better context to the article before it goes up. A warning, most of the sources are in German. HLHJ (talk) 00:13, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol confirmed.svg Interesting article! Suggest a shorter caption: "An ad for Nazi cigarettes". For me the picture is a bit borderline in terms of visibility, but OK. You might try reducing the size of some pictures in the article; on my small laptop screen it produces nasty sandwiching effects. Catrìona (talk) 01:03, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

ALT2: ... that, although the Nazi Party opposed tobacco smoking, the SA was funded by its own cigarette company?[13]

I've added some economic context to the bald statements of prices in obsolete currency, and a bit about Nazi tobacco policies. I made a stupid mistake yesterday; I accidentally implied that the entire population smoked, substituting population numbers for the number of smokers. I have fixed.
I've been reading some recent research (including the link you included, which I'd somehow missed; I have now added it). It looks to me as if the Nazi Party opposed smoking in the same way that they opposed monopoly, state ownership of businesses, supporting large private corporations, letting women work (outside home and farm), and restrictions of freedom of religion and worker's rights. When it was politically convenient to oppose it, they opposed it, and when it was politically convenient to do it, they did it.

ALT3: ... that, although Nazi Party ideology condemned tobacco smoking, the SA founded its own cigarette company?

ALT4: ... that the Nazis founded a cigarette company to fund their SA (while officially condemning smoking)?

The latter seems fair, as the founding was done by the party leadership, SA leaders, and private individuals who supported the Nazis, with all putting in money. Having the bold text make some sense on its own would be good. I'm not sure most readers will recognize "Sturmabteilung". "Brownshirts" might be more recognizable. "Stormtroopers" will probably evoke Star Wars. HLHJ (talk) 04:26, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Or, sticking closer to your source:

ALT5: ... that the Nazis founded a cigarette company to fund their SA (despite the party's anti-smoking faction)?

ALT6: ... that the Nazis founded a cigarette company to fund their SA (despite Hitler's dislike of smoking)?

I somewhat favour ALT5. Comments from anyone welcome. HLHJ (talk) 02:30, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
  • No problem, Catrìona, I initially forgot to ping you. Agree on the ideology wikilink , but Anti-tobacco movement in Nazi Germany might be an even better target. I'd like to fix some of its problems before linking to it from the main page, though (in progress). I like ALT2 too, I"m just uncertain as to whether the recent sources support the first clause. Some of the most powerful members and sections of the Nazi Party supported smoking, against Hitler and a faction within the party. "Nazis founded a cigarette company" does suggest that the article is about the founding. "...a cigarette company to fund the Nazi SA" might make a better boldfaced link, as it describes the target better. HLHJ (talk) 18:56, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

ALT7: ... that, despite the party's anti-smoking faction, a Nazi cigarette company funded the SA paramilitary?

( conflict) OK, as this is actually in the prep area, I've been bold and ed Anti-tobacco movement in Nazi Germany; despite a request to discuss changes on the article talk page, there seems not to have been any actual discussion since 2016, and s to the talk page and the article brought no response. We need to decide on a hook; I've tried to include all your recommendations, including "concise". HLHJ (talk) 04:08, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

I like ALT7. It is hooky and does not misrepresent the subject. However, "SA paramilitary" does not scan for me, since paramilitary is usually an adjective. I suggest instead "Sturmabteilung (SA)". Catrìona (talk) 04:32, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

ALT8: ... that, despite the party's anti-smoking faction, a Nazi cigarette company (advertisement pictured) funded the Sturmabteilung (SA)?

Thank you, Catrìona. It is often "paramilitary group" or "wing" or some such. I think I was sort of trying to say Freikorps, so "militia" might work better than "paramilitary", apart from sometimes being associated with the state. I'm OK with "Sturmabteilung" too, I'm just trying, probably uselessly, to shoehorn in a description of the SA for those unaware of what it was. I'm also happy with your original caption suggestion, unless you prefer something else. HLHJ (talk) 05:05, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

This seems to be in limbo, as it is not linked from anywhere in the DYK pipeline. Catrìona, Maile, I probably shouldn't move this into "approved" myself. May I ask one of you to move it?

  • At first I thought that ALT2 was good, but upon reading the article, I see the reason for the alert was more because of the shootout going on in the streets. I think you could make a better hook around the idea that the firefight broke out to allow Salazar's allies to escape undetected, or perhaps another, more vivid fact from the article. BTW I removed a number of boldfaced ref tags; not sure why they were there. Yoninah (talk) 13:20, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Hi Yoninah, thanks for the thorough review and copys. The boldfaced ref tags were my fault. I'm pretty sure I forgot to remove them while the article was still a draft. When I'm writing a large paragraph, I tend to bold certain sentences to remind myself that they need a source, as I usually find myself juggling 5+ sources at a single time (and I sometimes accidentally close out a tab with a source I've already used in by writing but haven't cited yet). So I bold the text if that happens to make sure I get back to it before moving the draft to the mainspace. See two bold sentences in the draft here.
  • Anyways, I'll provide a more vivid hook. Let me know what you think of this one:

  • Symbol question.svg New promotion to GA status verified. This appears to be the nominator's first DYK nomination, so no QPQ review of another DYK nomination is needed. Earwig found other sites that have copied from us, but no inappropriate copying in the other direction. However, to meet DYK standards (which are different from GA standards) we need a footnote giving a reliable source for the section "Fictional portrayals". Additionally, although the article hints at it (and of course it's true), it doesn't ever seem to explicitly say that he founded the Ptolemaic dynasty or that Cleopatra belonged to the same dynasty. For that matter the claim that his rank under Alexander was general, while stated explicitly in the lead, is neither sourced there nor expanded and sourced later; I'm surprised the GA review didn't complain about this, as it's a violation of MOS:LEAD (this time part of the GA rules) and in any case must also be sourced for DYK. The hook is a good one, but to use it the article needs to have a sentence or sentences containing the same claims, with a footnote on that exact sentence or sentences. —David Eppstein (talk) 06:22, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

The Kaiserin Elisabeth met Francis Ferdinand at Calcutta, and the voyage proceeded by way of the Dutch East Indies to Sydney, where the archduke again left the ship in order to tour the Australian outback. From Sydney the cruise continued through the islands of the southwest Pacific, then to Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan. The Kaiserin Elisabeth left Francis Ferdinand at the end of his Japanese tour and went on to show the flag in East Asian Waters before returning home by way of the Suez Canal later in 1893. The archduke continued his circumnavegation of the globe...In October 1893, he arrived in Vienna from Le Harve, to be welcomed home by Francis Joseph." (Sondhaus 1994, pp. 124-125)

I organized a weekly meeting for prayer and Bible reading among the wives of the chiefs, including the queen, who was well disposed to such endeavors, and I continued my Bible readings from house to house. Our increased income, adding comforts to our family life, did much for my health, and I could see that my departure from the mission had increased rather than lessened my ability to work."

Symbol possible vote.svg This appears to be only the nominator's fifth nomination, and given that the article itself is long (the problem is that the content is presented as a list while DYK's length requirement only applies to prose), this could still work as a hook. @Codrinb: I would suggest you expand the lede section to be a summary of the whole article, ensuring that it is at least 1,500 characters. Once this is done, this can become DYK eligible. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 05:00, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg Article is new enough and long enough. Where in the source is the birthdate? Source #1 does not give years as far as I can tell. There are a bunch of sources whose Spanish is above my language skills. Is deeperblue a reliable source? ALT1 is slightly more interesting but it's not entirely backed by the article. No copyvio or plagiarism that I can see. QPQ is OK. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 19:14, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Added a new source for date of birth (primary sources are acceptable for factual information like this). Also I corrected ALT1, as it was 2 days after, as per this source, which says "Just two days after Colombian Freediver Sofía Gómez Uribe set a new CMAS Freediving World record by diving 83m in the Constant Weight Bi-Fins discipline, she has furthered her grasp on the record by diving to 84m today." Joseph2302 (talk) 19:32, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Not sure if it is a reliable source, looks like it might be user submitted content. But it's also in the El Espectador article, in the paragrpah which starts "Atada a una línea de acero con un arnés". Joseph2302 (talk) 20:22, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Removed everything just sourced to Deeper Blue, and added different sources where I could find them. Joseph2302 (talk) 19:16, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
  • That source says she's a civil engineer, but I added a primary source for her education, which is permissible per WP:BLPSPS. Joseph2302 (talk) 20:21, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
  • SOurce #5 does not mention Trujilo or the Bolivarian Games. I don't think that "The record was beaten at the 2017 CMAS World Championships by Artnik and Ukrainian Nataliia Zharkova, both of whom dived 85 metres (279 ft)." is entirely supported either. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 06:47, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Added another source- the Bolivarian Games was in the sources that you told me to remove, which was why it temporarily became unsourced. And the 85m is clearly in the source. Joseph2302 (talk) 18:57, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

QPQ: Done.

Overall: This is good in every respect, ready to go. I didn't finish the review last night because I recognised the name of the article creator and wanted to look into that history; I also checked for copyvio in earlier versions before the recent expansion began.

However: I'm only an infrequent visitor to DYK, so may be off-track here, but I'd like to see more specific detail in the hook – the name of the lake, the flamingoes and microbes, the salt and arsenic all seem interesting to me. Of course, there's also the word-limit to be observed ... Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 14:54, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Is it possible to squeeze "Laguna Diamante" into the hook? Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 16:08, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
ALT1: ...that life in Laguna Diamante lake of Galán, one of the largest exposed calderas in the world, has to tolerate extreme environmental conditions such as radiation and arsenic?
ALT hook proposal @Justlettersandnumbers: Also re the concerns about the article creator I did remove the old article text wholesale when rewriting it. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 19:31, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Hey, Jo-Jo Eumerus, I don't want to lay down any law here – either hook is just fine with me ... but I do prefer the alt version. I tried "... conditions, with high levels of radiation and arsenic?" and still came out under 200 characters. Your call. Wl caldera? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:54, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

There was only one plane crash, I meant that he survived both a plane crash and a car accident.

The bridge over the M25

Created by Cnbrb (talk). Self-nominated at 12:22, 21 September 2018 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg Article had been created in the time specified by the nominator and, while very bare-bones and short, it has an adequate number of characters to satisfy the criteria; about 2,470. The nominator, Cnbrb, has had only four DYK crs as of writing, so a QPQ is not needed. There seems to be a lack of a consistent citation style, however, from bare URLs to Harvard citations. Some citations lack basic information, such as {{Cite web}} authors and {{Cite book}} page numbers. I like the premise of the latter part of the first proposed hook, and stress that we don't need two premises in one hook; we can cut out the subjectively less interesting factoid about who designed the bridge and when it was built, and instead focus on the fame and graffiti aspects. My proposal would be as follows,
ALT2: ...that the Chalfont Viaduct over the M25 motorway in England is famous for its graffiti? – PhilipTerryGraham (talk · articles · reviews) 15:45, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your input. The bare URL citation was added subsequently by another or, now fixed, along with some other references. BBC News articles never provide a byline, hence lack of author info. Cnbrb (talk) 15:59, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
