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.

  • At the top of that subsection (before other nominations already there, but below the section head and hidden comment) add {{Did you know nominations/YOUR ARTICLE TITLE}}.
  • Add an summary e.g. "Nominating YOUR ARTICLE TITLE for DYK" and click Save page.

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.

Jerry Masslo

  • Comment: No images available - itwiki has images, but those are specific exceptions in Italian copyright law, which cannot be used on enwiki. Article should be moved from Jerry Essan Masslo to Jerry Masslo. (improved hooks welcome!)

Created by Effeietsanders (talk). Self-nominated at 01:33, 11 June 2020 (UTC).

  • This is just a comment but I'm not sure if using the word "racist" in the hooks (as in "racist murders") is a good idea. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 09:02, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Just to clarify: are you concerned that the 'racist' is not an appropriate characterization, or do you feel that although it was racist, it should not be mentioned here (or maybe a third option)? I'm open to suggestions in general, just clearing up and possibly providing further context. effeietsanders 23:38, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
More of the second option. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 23:40, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Just to clarify my thinking here, and then I'll leave it to someone else to judge: the racist component seemed from the sources/context to be relevant as to how the Italians responded to the murder. The fact that Masslo was South African, makes this even more sensitive. effeietsanders 23:49, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
  • hiya i'll take this on for review and i think we can get there but it will take a bit of work. here's some issues i'm seeing on a quick look Mujinga (talk) 18:33, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
  • the hooks need to have a citation attached so it's easy for me to check the claims
  • every paragraph in the article needs to have at least one citation to a reliable source
  • obviously this can be an emotive issue but i don't think the word "racist" is suitable here. compared to racist murders such as Murder of Stephen Lawrence this doesn't seem like a hate crime to me, more a robbery gone tragically wrong. if the racism is more "how the Italians responded to the murder" then that isn't so much about the murder itself. ultimately, i don't think the hooks lose much by taking the word out.
  • QPQ does not seem to be necessary as this is a first nom, just checking that is correct
  • the page move mentioned above has been done, so that's no longer an issue
  • earwig gives no copyvio so that's good, paging @Effeietsanders: for a response to the other comments. Mujinga (talk) 18:46, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol possible vote.svg Mujinga (talk) 19:44, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol possible vote.svg The nominator has been pinged twice over the last 3 weeks. If these issues are not addressed within a week, by July 28, the nomination will be closed as unsuccessful. Yoninah (talk) 11:28, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Would a better hook be something like this? I think it acknowledges the important factor of race without using the phrase "racist murder" which frankly sounds unidiomatic to me.~ oulfis 🌸(talk) 03:17, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
  • ALT2:... that the South African refugee Jerry Masslo was granted a state funeral after his murder inspired Italy's first anti-racist demonstrations in 1989? Source: (see article for sourcing)

Hiya talk [Oulfis] thanks yes that hook seems better to me, do you want to take on the nomination shared with effeietsanders? My comments made above still stand, the article needs some work and the hook would need to be properly referenced on the relevant sentences before proceeding. Mujinga (talk) 17:31, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Thought I should ping - @Oulfis: Mujinga (talk) 17:39, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll see what I can do! ~ oulfis 🌸(talk) 17:40, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
@Oulfis: Have the issues been addressed? It's been almost two weeks since your last comments here. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 05:50, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Mary Carson Breckinridge

  • Reviewed: "QPQ exempt"

Improved to Good Article status by JECason (talk). Self-nominated at 21:11, 17 June 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg Nominated within 7 days of receiving GA icon. New enough, long enough, neutrally written, well referenced, no close paraphrasing seen. However, there are numerous statements that need sourcing, as well as a whole paragraph that needs citations per Rule D2.
  • ALT0 is interesting. Please tell me the page number on which the hook fact appears so I can check it. ALT1 and 2 read very technically and not so interestingly. I have struck ALT3 because it's a shame not to mention the subject specifically on the main page. No QPQ needed for nominator with less than 5 DYK cr. Yoninah (talk) 14:41, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
  • I will double check citations and respond very soon with more information.JECason
  • The citation to lowering infant and maternal mortality appears on pages 501-02 of Dye's article. The whole article narrates the intentional process of achieving that goal, but the goal is reported and cites to the historical record on those pages. I'm still a novice or going through this process of the first time. I'll check on placing a page number inside the article as well, but if I should be responding with a page number somewhere other than here, please let me know. JECason —Preceding undated comment added 21:21, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
  • @JECason: Thank you for the page numbers. Where does it say anything about low cost?
  • There are still a number of "citation needed" tags that need to be taken care of. Yoninah (talk) 20:38, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote.svg The nominator is no longer ing. Marking this nomination for closure as unsuccessful, although if the nominator reappears before the template is closed, we can continue. Yoninah (talk) 13:12, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
I think we should wait another week and see what happens. Two weeks since the nominator's last isn't really that long. I am curious how the article passed a GA review with multiple areas not cited. Flibirigit (talk) 16:28, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: I looked at the GA review and I wouldn't call it much of one. SL93 (talk) 23:47, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
Flibirigit, Yoninah, SL93 is absolutely right. This was a GA review by a first-time reviewer who passed it even having mentioned some issues in their review, which were not required to be fixed. Further, with a single paragraph lead section in an article of its size, it failed to meet MOS:LEAD, one of the GA criteria, in addition to the citation issues. BlueMoonset (talk) 13:43, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
The nominator ed yesterday so I left one final message for them. If there's still no response in a week this can probably be closed as unsuccessful. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 10:12, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Mooky Greidinger

Created by Philafrenzy (talk) and Edwardx (talk). Nominated by Edwardx (talk) at 22:41, 23 June 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg New enough, long enough, neutrally written, well referenced, no close paraphrasing seen. QPQ done.
  • The hook, however, is confusing. If you don't know that Mooky is associated with Cineworld, the two parts of the hook don't seem to go together. Could you make the hook clearer please? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 19:29, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
  • @Philafrenzy: thank you, but the source doesn't exactly say that, and they only own 29% of Cineworld at that. Can you come up with a better hook please? Yoninah (talk) 20:41, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
ALT2:... that Israeli cinema CEO Mooky Greidinger's family have been in the cinema business since the 1930s? Philafrenzy (talk) 21:25, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
ALT3:... that Israeli cinema CEO Mooky Greidinger's family opened their first cinema in Haifa in 1935? (It's implied that this was their first but not stated explicitly. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:29, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
@Philafrenzy: thank you for the alts. You know, the article is so skimpy that it's hard to find more to write. Have you looked for more sources? Yoninah (talk) 21:42, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
Edwardx did most of the expansion. There are other sources that deal with Greidinger as a person rather than Cineworld but they are behind paywalls that I don't have access to. Why can't we go with ALT2? Philafrenzy (talk) 22:16, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Because it's boring? Who would click on that if they didn't know who he is and what he's done? Yoninah (talk) 19:13, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Nippon Professional Baseball playoffs

  • Comment: NPB's season starts up again on Friday June 19 after being delayed for months because of COVID. If possible to get it on the main page on that day, that'd be great!

Created by Torsodog (talk). Self-nominated at 04:58, 18 June 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol possible vote.svg The article has several maintenance tags which need to be addressed before the nomination can pass. Please see the [citation needed] tags. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 12:40, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Policy compliance:

Hook eligibility:

QPQ: None required.

Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg Article created and nominated on the same day. Article appears neutral in tone and its length is adequate. No photo is used in this nomination, and all images in the article are properly licensed on the Commons. Nominator has less then five DYK crs, therefore QPQ is not required. Article has maintenance tags to be resolved. Article has several close paraphrasing issues as noted here and here. ALT0 is verified by the source, but I do not see it explicitly mentioned anywhere in this article. ALT1 is properly cited, mentioned inline and verified. Flibirigit (talk) 01:23, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

In addition, per User:Torsodog/DYK, it appears that the nominator actually has 10 prior DYK crs. Normally this would mean they will need to do a QPQ, but given that they have only had two QPQ crs after 2010 the requirement could be waived per WP:IAR. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:19, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Looking into this now. This info was sourced from the JA wiki but I couldn't find sources for it at the time. I intended to search more later. I might have to remove the info for the time being --TorsodogTalk 17:05, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. Please comment here when you're ready. Flibirigit (talk) 17:18, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
I added a reference for one and removed the sentence for another as I couldn't find a reference for it at the moment. Also, I didn't know about the QPQ as it's been quite a while since I've done DYK. Let me know if I need to do this? I'll try to do one when I get a chance in the future either way though! --TorsodogTalk 19:01, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
I will seek clarification at WT:DYK on whether a QPQ is neeed here. Flibirigit (talk) 19:18, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Per the discussion at WT:DYK it turns out that the nominator provided a QPQ on their last DYK so one will likely be required here. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 08:15, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
@Torsodog:, are you going to contribute a QPQ? --evrik (talk) 18:09, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
I note that Torsodog has ed only a handful of times since his last comment here. I'm fine with waiting a week or so if he's busy, as long as this nomination does not go stale. I'd rather see this nomination pass than be rejected. Flibirigit (talk) 18:23, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
As long as the QPQ is the only thing holding back the nomination and there are no other issues I'm willing to donate a QPQ. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 10:47, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
The article still has close paraphrasing issues as per the review above. The concern about ALT0 is still outstanding as per the review above. The maintenance tags for citations have been resolved. Flibirigit (talk) 15:12, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
I have posted a message at WT:DYK to see if anyone will adopt this. It would be ashame to reject the nomination when it really is not that far away from being successful. Flibirigit (talk) 17:57, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol possible vote.svg The reliance of this article on heraldry-wiki.com is concerning, as it does not immediately strike me as a WP:RS. Escutcheon descriptions appear to be (at least in some cases) direct quotes, which might make sense given the subject matter, but it needs to be clear they are direct quotes. Some lack sources. Some sources lack access dates. CMD (talk) 15:54, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Unfortunately, full blazons are technical descriptions which can't really be "changed", they're often the official description in the grant of arms. Coming up with a new blazon would be like coming with a new motto, inaccurate and pointless. Also, their length is short enough that in almost all legal traditions they are not copyright (see Wikipedia's information page).
I do agree Heraldry of the World (heraldry-wiki.com) is not the best source, and it has been avoided where easily possible, but even WikiProject Heraldry lists it as a possible resource (along with a forum so yes, not great). Would it be okay just to use information from preferable sources for the hook? Shadowssettle Need a word? 09:47, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
The full blazons don't have to be changed, but especially given they are direct quotes, they need to be sourced. If I as a reader look at the Aberdeen entry, I have no way to see where the matriculation date was found, where the motto and escutcheon are from, and therefore even where the image might be from.
I would be okay with the inclusion of heraldry-wiki in the article if the hooks themselves are better sourced. I would also prefer the hook not be from a primary source. Perhaps Patterson 2008 might be the best. CMD (talk) 10:01, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol possible vote.svg The hooks aren't thrilling. I might suggest using the dna tidbit and focusing on that school. --evrik (talk) 18:12, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Created by Slugger O'Toole (talk). Nominated by The Squirrel Conspiracy (talk) at 02:29, 23 June 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol possible vote.svg Date of creation and length both check out fine. The hook fact is interesting, and appropriately cited inline. Checks on ref #1, which is heavily used in the article reveal a few concerning similarities though: [6] Harrias talk 07:56, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Harrias, That source was very heavily used, but I tried not to paraphrase too closely. Could you point out one or two examples and I'll seek to rectify them? Thanks! And thanks also to Harrias for the nomination! --01:09, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
Harrias, Could you be a little more specific, please, and I'd be glad to fix them. --Slugger O'Toole (talk) 17:21, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
Slugger O'Toole It's all in the link provided in my original comment. Harrias talk 17:29, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
Harrias, Sorry about that. Not sure how I missed it. I have made some changes. A lot of the similarities are things that can't be avoided (e.g. "The United States," the title of her memoir, "Socialist Workers Party," etc.). Others are just two or three words that I don't think are too closely paraphrasing (e.g. "Hitler came to power," " the municipal physician," etc). Thanks for looking at it. --Slugger O'Toole (talk) 14:16, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Actually, it's a very long article with a very short lead. Slugger O'Toole, could you expand the lead to summarize the key points of the presentation? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 19:28, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Statue of Hans Christian Heg

Statue of Hans Christian Heg
Statue of Hans Christian Heg

Created by Another Believer (talk). Nominated by KAVEBEAR (talk) at 20:08, 30 June 2020 (UTC).

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol question.svg In the vandalism section, it should mention (and link to) the larger context of the George Floyd protests. Otherwise, a reader without background would be left wondering why there were random protests targeting the statue. The hook is missing a period at the end. The passive voice language in the hook can also be cleaned up. E.g. "to their view that Wisconsin is racially unjust." Ergo Sum 21:54, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Symbol possible vote.svg I am not sure we really know why the mob toppled and damaged the statues. Of the two citations for the alleged-reason for rioters attacking the statue, madison.com is blocked in Europe so I cannot check it,, Associated Press/Yahoo news does not mention the reason it is cited for. The latter says "it seems likely that few Wisconsinites know Heg's biography". It also says "Protesters said in media interviews that the state and city aren't living up to the progressive values represented by the “Forward” and Col. Hans Christian Heg sculptures that were torn down Tuesday night."

Other sources not cited give other views.

New hook. KAVEBEAR (talk) 09:41, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
It would be better to use the word "rioters" than "protestors". "Rioters" is a simple factual description. "Protestors" implies a degree of sympathy for them (i.e. non-neutral).-- Toddy1 (talk) 15:05, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Created by Webmz (talk). Self-nominated at 12:47, 25 June 2020 (UTC).

Symbol question.svg I can see a couple of issues immediately:
  1. The Personal section has no supporting citations.
  2. The suggested hooks do not seem accurate. As I understand it, the subject has not found evidence. What they seem to have done is build a model which extrapolates from examples in our own solar system. Such a theoretical model is not evidence; it's a hypothesis which would require more evidence to validate it.

Created by Legis (talk). Self-nominated at 15:11, 29 June 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg @Legis: Date and length fine. I prefer the original but I can't see an inline citation for the 85 years claim. QPQ not needed as this is the nominator's fourth nomination. No close paraphrasing. I wouldn't reccommend using the picture of Lord Hardwicke as he isn't even mentioned in the hook, the one of Penn would be more appropriate. Ping me when that's done and I'll have another look. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 15:09, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

O Jesu Christe, wahres Licht

Created by Gerda Arendt (talk). Self-nominated at 17:30, 12 July 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg New enough, long enough, neutrally written, no close paraphrasing seen in English online sources. Image is freely licensed. QPQ done. But I don't understand the hook. According to your article, the original title translates as "O Jesus Christ, true light". The English translation is almost identical. IMO this is not an appropriate hook. Yoninah (talk) 21:00, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
    ... but it saves us a translation in parenthesis as we have right now on the Main page, and I'm no friend of it.

    Here I'm back, Yoninah, having expanded the article a bit. I am not able to word the cutest thing about this hymn. The author wrote it, praying for those separated and delusioned, meaning the Catholics who opposed him and Protestantism in the Counter-Reformation, repeating: praying for their enlightenment, not fighting them. And today, it's also in Catholic hymnals. As that is too difficult to word, how is this?
    ALT1: ... that lines from the hymn "O Jesu Christe, wahres Licht" by Johann Heermann were translated by Catherine Winkworth as "enlighten [whom] dark delusion haunts and blinds"?
    The complete phrase "Enlighten those whose inmost minds / Some dark delusion haunts and blinds." seems too long, but would show her artisty better. Open for other ideas. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:07, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Gerda, lately you have been submitting hooks that focus on the hymn's wording, and it's really not all that interesting. I have suggested other hooks in the past and been immediately voted down, so I'm not willing to make the effort here. You can skip the translation in parentheses—we've done that before—and maybe say it was associated with a melody from Nürnberg dating to 1676, or that it's included in both Protestant and Catholic hymnals, or that the tune was used in other musical settings. Yoninah (talk) 16:29, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
    What you suggest would be pretty similar to Template:Did you know nominations/Das Jahr steht auf der Höhe, where it's truly unusual: a 20th-century text to such an old melody, but for a 17th-century, it's rather the normal thing, not worth mentioning, sorry. That Heermann asked to pray for those under whom he suffered is unusual, only I can't word it in the few words permitted. That a hymn appears both Catholic and Protestant is by now also rather usual, - unusual is that the Catholics were regarded as opposition when it was written, and now have it in their hymnal. We could use Paulus, sure, only then we point at Paulus rather than this hymn, and that article is in a sad shape, and I have no time to fix it right now. - Sorry, this article is one of the few articles connected to my topic of the year, which makes me want to say something about enlightenment. Please understand. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:44, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg New enough, long enough, well referenced, no close paraphrasing seen. But there is far too much linking going on inside sentences, which is why the Philippine Star ref (footnote 5) is cited so many times. Please move all the cites to the end of the sentence and eliminate the duplicates. For example:
  • He resumed his singing career[1] performing in clubs,[1][2][3] including in Ember's Club in Cubao[4][1] where he was earning 15 a night.[1]
  • This would be rewritten as:
  • He resumed his singing career performing in clubs, including in Ember's Club in Cubao where he was earning 15 a night.[1][2][3][4]
  • If you need help, let me know.

@Yoninah: I appreciate your feedback. Regarding that excerpt, I placed the citations in that manner (as with others) to maintain WP:INTEGRITY, and it looks fine to me. Nevertheless, I already made little changes to that specific part in the live version so it may look less cluttered. Here's two alts, the first so "Mathis" isn't overly repeated, while the second is a new, simpler hook.

  • Symbol question.svg This is not a full review yet, anyone else is welcome to comment. I have some general questions. Which sources are there that satisfy WP:LISTN? In other words, is just the these two articles here and here, which talk about the list as a whole? There appears to be no introduction according to WP:SALLEAD, and just a really long block of text which is difficult to read. Is there a reason why the list is not chronological as per WP:SALORDER? Is there a reason why the article is called "List", but the actual list is called "Table"? Again, these are general questions, not DYK failures. Overall it is an interesting list. Thanks for considering. Flibirigit (talk) 00:07, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Hiya thanks for the comments, I probably won't be able to respond until Monday at the earliest. Mujinga (talk) 09:07, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
  • So to reply:
  • "Which sources are there that satisfy WP:LISTN?" well i would go by the first criterion of WP:CSC, namely "Every entry meets the notability criteria for its own non-redirect article in the English Wikipedia" (although there are a few independently notable entries without their own wikipage). I'm not sure the list itself needs to be notable but if it does yes those BBC and Guardian links would serve.
  • "There appears to be no introduction according to WP:SALLEAD" - I did read and follow this guideline (as well as examining some featured lists) but it's my first proper attempt at a stand-alone list which I'd like to bring to featured status so any feedback is welcome, happy to change/add stuff on specific points. I do feel that I've given background info and the selection criteria in that first paragraph, as the guideline suggests.
  • "Is there a reason why the list is not chronological as per WP:SALORDER?" - this isn't currently a chronological list.
  • "Is there a reason why the article is called "List", but the actual list is called "Table"?" - this I did purely to avoid repetition, but I've changed the table title to "List". Mujinga (talk) 12:51, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
  • There has definitely been a lot of work put into this list and I see potential to become a featured list. I still feel that the list should have a lead section which highlights the criteria for inclusion into the list, and explains in a sentence why the list is important.

Symbol question.svg Interesting statue, both looks and history, on good sources, no copyvio obvious, quotes are marked as such. - The image is splendid and almost a must in this case. - I am not happy with the hooks, because both say something as fact which is one writer's opinion, and also can be seen in the image. I suggest to focus on her falling in the Rhine or whatever else unique. - In the article, there are too many sentences in brackets for my taste, but that's a matter of style, not in the way of approval. The first sentence in the body is a long-running mix of history and description which might profit from a split, perhaps even a separate section "Description", giving measurements and such. I don't think a statue is a "she", and doubt that "dedication" in the infobox is the right one for the allegory. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:36, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Other than the obvious similarity of the two sculptures on the article page (the medal and the Georgia Hall of Fame plaque), and the fact that the upper right is described in the literature as a "Navy pilot." I've sent you an e-mail with what my research has uncovered. 7&6=thirteen () 16:59, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
That is original research, we need a reliable secondary source that says it is McWhorter on the CGM. For DYK I suggest the following hook:

... that US Navy Commander Hamilton McWhorter III was the first Grumman F6F Hellcat pilot to achieve double ace status?

This can be cited to Dorr p. 16 and Stout p. 77, using exact page numbers, not ranges as it is now. I have ed the article lead. Dorr failed verification for what it was citing, as he says (only in a photo caption on p. 16) "the first Hellcat double ace" not "the first Navy carrier pilot to achieve double ace status" the two are not equivalent. The AFLJ says "the first naval carrier ace in WWII who later became a double ace", again not what was being cited. Stout (p. 77) says he "became the first Hellcat pilot to reach the double ace mark". Again, fails verification for the statement "the first Navy carrier pilot to achieve double ace status". I have adjusted the article to reflect the two claims that have been verified, 1) that he was the "first United States Navy carrier aviator to become an ace", cited to the AFLJ, and 2) the first Hellcat double ace (now correctly cited to Stout and Dorr in the article). The sources are not of the highest quality, but they seem ok. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 10:13, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
The AFLJ article appears to be incorrect as the 'first naval carrier ace' overall claim is not supported by any other source. Butch O'Hare is often cred as the first USN ace from long before McWhorter entered combat. (See for example, Ewing and Lundstrom, Fateful Rendezvous, p. 142) This is a significant claim and if true would be repeated elsewhere, but it is not, so it can be dismissed as an error by the AFLJ which is not an in-depth source. As for what can be supported: for example, Hammel in Aces Against Japan p. 129 says 'first carrier-based double ace of the war', Mersky's review in Naval Aviation News says 'first F6F ace and first F6F double ace, and Tillman in his U.S. Navy Fighter Squadrons in World War II, p. 33 says "not only the first F6F ace , but the first F6F double ace." The first USN carrier-based double ace claim is supported by Tillman 1979, p. 60: From this brief scrap, Ham McWhorter, with ten victories, temporarily emerged as the top scorer among carrier fighter pilots.. It is also repeated in Sears, Pacific Air and Cleaver, Pacific Thunder, p. 127. From this it can be stated that McWhorter was the first Hellcat ace, first Hellcat double ace, and first USN carrier-based double ace. The 'carrier-based' qualifier is needed because Ira C. Kepford was a Navy pilot who had reached double ace status a few weeks before McWhorter but Kepford flew land-based F4U Corsairs.

  • Symbol possible vote.svg I'm seeing substantial verifiability problems here. "Books on Demand" seems to be a self-publishing company, meaning it's not a reliable source. There are also large unsourced sections. I also feel there are concerns with neutrality; the subject of this article was a member of the SS, worked for the German army in World War II, which implies he was a Nazi, but the article doesn't even use that word. I'm not seeing the hook explicitly supported by the body of the article, and in the lead it's cited to the problematic source already mentioned. Article is new enough, long enough, etc, but if these issues aren't fixed I'm afraid I'm going to have to fail this. Vanamonde (Talk) 15:41, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Vanamonde93, Firstly, thanks for the review. In the section Period of National Socialism, the paragraph starts with In 1933 Weixler became a member of the NSDAP and the SS. The Wikipedia article NSDAP says The National Socialist German Workers' Party[a] (abbreviated in German as NSDAP), commonly referred to in English as the Nazi Party.

I've read through the article and it looks like a fascinating topic for a DYK, but there are a couple of minor concerns with C/E, such as "Major activist of the interwar period" and in the first para the use of "It had" or "It was" – it would be beneficial if these could be fixed. Apart from that, the hook looks good. The source doesn't seem to cover this DYK though; would you mind paraphrasing?

I've made a suggestion below.

  • Symbol question.svg Article is new enough and long enough. Earwigs did not detect any close paraphrasing. Assuming good faith for the hook sources as I can't access them right now. QPQcheck says that you have only three prior DYK crs with the most recent in 2014; can you please confirm this? I also have some questions about the article: firstly, why is her being the first licensed woman glider pilot in the U.S. only mentioned in the lede but not in the body? Secondly, is there any known information about her early life as well as her life after the 1930s? The article does not mention a date of death. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 11:19, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Thanks for the review! I have added a mention of the "first licensed woman glider pilot in the US" to the body. I think the QPQ tool is buggy, since around Jan. 2020, while submitting my last DYK nom, I reviewed several others (I can try to find them). Regarding death, I have a request in the Talk page for that info, since I haven't been able to find anything after her husband's obit in 1975, when she was 66 or so. I have also not been able to find anything further about her early life beyond what's in the article (i.e. available sources). If you can find anything about either, it would be great. Thanks again, Crum375 (talk) 13:49, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Maybe you can try asking where to find sources about her later life? Given the supplementary guidelines on completeness I have reservations of approving this without the early life and death issues being addressed. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 15:02, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: I have a subscription to newspapers.com which is fairly complete for all US papers, and can't find an obit for her there or any more recent mention. There is also nothing further in the 99's newsletters (she was an early and active member there). The last reference I found anywhere is that she survived her husband's death in 1975, when she was 66 yo. The usual tools just don't come up with anything (under any of her names) since that time (excluding historical reviews with no further info). If you know of any other resource that I have missed, let me know. Crum375 (talk) 15:25, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Are your "reservations" because every DYK article about a person must have early and late life material? If so, do you have a reference for that? I checked here and couldn't find anything pertinent, but I could have missed something. Crum375 (talk) 18:09, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
According to WP:DYKSG#D7, articles that appear on DYK are ideally expected have most of the essential information of a subject, which can include life information in the case of biographies. Nominations in the past have stalled or even been rejected for lacking important information. Biographies are not necessarily required to have information about early and personal life, particularly if no sources about it are available, but they are good to have when they are feasible. In this case, the lack of information about early life can be accepted since an effort was made to find sources pertaining to it, but a lack of a date of death does raise eyebrows since given the year she was born and her past at the very least a date of death is expected. If there's simply no information about a date of death out there and nothing can be done about it, the article can still be passed, but perhaps some kind of note or text could be added to the article reflecting that (while following WP:NOR), like maybe mentioning the thing about the death of her husband above is the last known information about her. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 23:49, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: I agree with you that the lack of date of death is problematic, so I tried your suggestion. What do you think? Crum375 (talk) 02:27, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
I think it could work, but I'm not sure if the "her year of death is unknown" part would count as WP:OR. I'll try to get back to you regarding that; once that's been resolved the nomination will be passed. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 03:23, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
I talked to some ors over at Discord (courtesy ping to MrLinkinPark333 and Epicgenius) and their advice was that the note wording (about her having no known DOD, assuming that she has died) might be OR. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 11:32, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Do they have any other practical suggestion? Do they think the nom can pass without it? Crum375 (talk) 00:01, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
MrLinkinPark333 said they wouldn't comment here, I'll ask Epicgenius if he wants to chime in. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 00:03, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
Regarding OR, it is original research to say the subject has definitely died if we're given only the fact that she was born in 1909. While it's unlikely she's still alive, there have been recorded instances of living 111-year-olds, and if there is a non-zero chance that something may not be true, it may be challenged. I also noticed that the current phrasing of the lead is also ambiguous as to whether Dunlap is alive or dead (which is a good thing in my opinion). The current wording, that Dunlap "was the first licensed woman glider pilot", is true in either case, since her accomplishment occurred in the past rather than being an ongoing role. For the footnote, I would suggest that, if there are absolutely no sources that mention a date of death, then the article need not mention it. There are just some things that escape newspapers, and not everyone chooses to have their obituary published in the news. epicgenius (talk) 00:14, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
@Epicgenius: I have modified the note to try to address your comment, as I agree that there is a minuscule chance she's still alive at 111. What do you think? Crum375 (talk) 01:00, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
@Crum375: Your current wording works. FWIW, I looked at newspaperarchive.com and other places, and can't find anything about her death, if it's happened. epicgenius (talk) 01:40, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
@Epicgenius: Thanks! Much appreciated. Crum375 (talk) 03:58, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
@Yoninah: Is it okay if you give the final approval for this? I haven't encountered a case similar to this one before and I'm not sure what to do here. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 22:52, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

@Crum375: if you are using clippings via Newspapers.com, one of the rules is to make a clipping and mark it "open access". I have done that for your Atlanta Constitution reference. I also added an existing clipping for Joseph Bennett's death. I found Maxine Dunlap Bennett listed as being from California in the 1940 US Census, so I added her information from the 1910 US Census, which gives us her birth year. It's weird that there isn't any more information about her, not in Newspapers.com, or in Find a Grave, or in the Social Security Death Index. Maybe she's one of the oldest living Americans? I think the article is worded all right but please disambiguate University of California. Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 19:04, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

@Yoninah: Thank you for all that work and review! Regarding the UC dab issue, it's another example of frustration with limited information. All I found about her education was one source saying she attended "University of California" with no further details. So instead of OR-ing and deciding "they must have meant campus X" (with X=UCSF most likely), I decided to link to the parent organization (which is not simply a WP dab page), as better (IMO) than no link at all (bearing in mind that UCSF only became independent in 1964 and only got its name in 1970). But I am open to suggestions, or any additional well-sourced information, as always. Crum375 (talk) 21:08, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
  • @Crum375: Thanks for the explanation. I've removed the tag. The hook is fine, but I have a question about the sourcing. On this template you've given the source as the Charlotte Observer, but you give two different (offline) sources in the article. (I'm also wondering if you can clip those 2 sources as I mentioned above.) Yoninah (talk) 21:31, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
  • @Yoninah: Thank you, will work linking to those clips per your suggestion. Re having two sources, I only have one source (the Charlotte Observer of 1939) for "lindberghitis", but multiple sources for "first woman glider pilot in the US", both of which are mentioned in the hook. I like the SF Examiner Apr. 29 for the latter claim, since it was contemporaneous, but I think it's best to have both. Crum375 (talk) 21:48, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
  • But it's confusing in the article. You're quoting the Charlotte Observer and then citing the Oakland Tribune and the San Francisco Examiner. Maybe after you link some clips it will become clearer :) Yoninah (talk) 22:35, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Will try to improve it. Bear in mind that some clips, even when written under a headline of event D, may recap events A, B and C, and sometimes add more info about B than we have in other sources. So the sequence of sources could be confusing if you just look at the titles or dates. This is where online sources are of course much better. I have also added a quote to the ref for the "first woman" part. Crum375 (talk) 00:24, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
  • I am not aware of any rule on either WP as whole or DYK specifically that requires everything to have multiple sources or dictionary entries. It is possible in this case that this term was coined by the author of the article (in a reliable publication, subject to orial control), or perhaps by Maxine herself. But either way, a single reliable source, even if we assume that the source actually coined the term (which is why it's in quotes) is sufficient for a WP article and a related DYK hook, AFAIK. Crum375 (talk) 18:23, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
  • I agree. It's reliably sourced, and quoted from the source. We rarely link to wiktionary in hooks. Yoninah (talk) 18:35, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
For what it's worth, I don't think "lindberghitis" needs to be linked to a dictionary since it's just a funny quote, only that the quote itself needs to be sourced. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 07:13, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Does anyone think that more offline (newspaper) sources need to include quotes (beyond the hook ones, which are already there)? I am having difficulties getting online links to the clippings, but would be happy to add more quotes if someone wants anything specific. Of course anyone with a newspaper archive account (or at a public library) should be able to access them for verification. Thanks, Crum375 (talk) 17:45, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
@Crum375: give me a list of the footnote numbers you want clipped, and I'll do it. There's no reason for all these quotes when the articles are free access. Yoninah (talk) 19:16, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol possible vote.svg YourUsernameWillBePublic, this is very interesting. Pity you didn't have this ready a week or two ago so we could have had it on the front page in time for the start of the hajj. Anyway, the article needs a good scrubbing. The opening sentence already has some issues, and I see problems with the references also--repeated references need to be consolidated, some are just bare URLs while others are fully cited, etc. So that's the first thing that needs to be taken care of. Timtrent, you helped move this--can you help get it ready for the front page? Drmies (talk) 01:25, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Drmies, I will look at some of the technical aspects, but the topic is entirely foreign to me. I was simply the reviewer at WP:AFC who accepted the draft. Fiddle Faddle 07:55, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
All redlinks I could target to articles are targeted. There are three left. I am not sure on DYK's needs, but two seem sensible to leave in order to seek to spawn new articles. The third is debatable.
All references filled and consolidated using reFill. One had to be done manually Fiddle Faddle 08:39, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • I think the "Alta" points to the correct place (I assume someone fixed it and I did not have it pointing there?), I am not sure what the ReFill consolidation/ manual talk means, and looking on Google it seems like the "Muslim Welfare Centre" is in Toronto East on McLevin Street and the Toronto Dawah Centre is in Toronto West on Bloor Street...so I would assume they are not related to each other, but I do not know for certain. FYI, Eid starts tonight. YourUsernameWillBePublic (talk) 12:59, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • YourUsernameWillBePublic, Thank you for correcting the Nenets issue. I did my best to remove all disambiguation links. I have tried hard to find targets for all redlinks, too. I am not sure if reFill is a gadget (preferences pane) or not, I have it in my tools segment of my left hand margin and use it to fill in and consolidate citations and references. I implemented it years ago and have forgotten how. Fiddle Faddle 13:17, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Drmies, I'm tempted to suggest we might look for several more ALT hooks. Meanwhile I'm trying to get reFILL to do some more work. Arcane stuff I enjoy. I must be odd. Fiddle Faddle 16:39, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Further hooks for consideration prior to forming into formal ALT hooks:
  • The first mass immigration of Muslims into the Northwest Territories were following the 1970s boom in Arctic petroleum exploration.
  • The Islamic Community Center of Anchorage Alaska was the first purpose-built mosque in the US state
  • At the outset of the 20th century, Finland was the only country in Northern Europe to have a native Muslim population
  • Norway's largest Arctic mosque is in Tromso, built in 2006
These are four that I can find that may be worth pursuing. I have not formed them into full hooks. They have varying merits Fiddle Faddle 16:52, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • @Drmies and YourUsernameWillBePublic: I've tried very hard to look at all the references and filled them out to the best of my now cross eyed ability. I have done all of them (probably). Please check that my work looks useful. One, plus its text, I have removed and migrated to the talk page in case it becomes useful later Fiddle Faddle 18:59, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • @Drmies and YourUsernameWillBePublic: I've just been through the references again and fleshed out those with less complete parameters. Author names had slipped in a couple of cases, and one incorrect cite template had been used. Who knew there was a {{cite conference}}? Very useful! Fiddle Faddle 07:34, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
  • YourUsernameWillBePublic, no-one expects you to stand back. If things are incorrect please correct them. Fiddle Faddle 22:56, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • YourUsernameWillBePublic, I'm not sure what you mean with "paragraph about Irkutsky". Irkutsk was mentioned, but that was incorrect: the 1914 mosque was planned to be built in Yakutsk, according to the source. I changed UAE back to Egypt; please see my summary. As for the title, I believe you are correct: Bkissin, I think we should move it back--thanks. Drmies (talk) 23:20, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
You're right, wow, I can't believe I confused Irkutsk and Yakustk in the ten seconds between reading the article and then typing the sentence...that's embarrassing for me :) Nevertheless my point stands, since Yakustk is also Arctic/FarNorth by Russian definition - so the detail on the pre-war mosque should still be included rather than removed. YourUsernameWillBePublic (talk) 02:08, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

Symbol question.svg Hi N0nuun, welcome to DYK. Your article is long enough and as this is your first DYK nomination there is no need for a QPQ. No significant copyright violation, article is long enough, and well-sourced. However, I have a couple things:
  • The "History" section looks kind of "list"-y, if you get what I mean. Maybe consider restructuring it?
  • The first sentence in the article says "were" - I thought the boycott is still ongoing? Juxlos (talk) 03:37, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Thank you so much. I have read your concerns and I will work on them over the next few days. As for your second point, by the time that the nomination would be accepted (if it does), the boycott would have already ended, as it only covered the month of July. So if it hits the Main Page in August, then most of the boycott would've already ended. Also, I would very much prefer if ALT1 gets chosen instead of the first hook, because I think it sounds better than the first. Once again, thank you very much. N0nuun (talk) 05:53, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
  • I would still recommend using present tense and replacing the lead with past tense once the boycott actually ends. But alas. Juxlos (talk) 08:59, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

This is taking too much of my time, sorry about that. Let's summarize: I can not support this DYK nom in any guise or form as long as the "Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust" article still needs so much work, that is, apart from content and reference issues (as mentioned above), also grammar issues and other typos. Imho this DYK isn't going anywhere. --Francis Schonken (talk) 11:39, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
I'm back. I said rather on top that my focus was elsewhere. I reviewed now Template:Did you know nominations/Corbin Building. I don't think the article needs reworking regarding popularity, - it says that it became popular as a Wanderlied, no more. How is this:
ALT3: ... that "Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust" ("To wander is the miller's delight"), a poem by Wilhelm Müller, became a German art song as the beginning of Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin, and a popular Volkslied set by Carl Friedrich Zöllner?
I will try to make Volkslied an article rather than the sad redirect. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:44, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Foreign funding of NGOs

Created by Buidhe (talk). Self-nominated at 02:07, 29 July 2020 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg @Buidhe: New enough, long enough, well referenced, neutral enough, no copyvio issue found. Hook appears in the article and is cited. QPQ is in order. For verification purpose could you quote the part of the study that asserts higher turnout for those countries? Based on my reading it seems the paper is more about proposing a reason why the restriction of foreign funding has that effect, not about finding the effect itself. Let me know if there is something I miss. In addition, suggest organizing the #By country and #Pros and cons section to better follow MOS:PARA, especially: "Short paragraphs and single sentences generally do not warrant their own subheading" and "The number of single-sentence paragraphs should be minimized". HaEr48 (talk) 21:22, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Exactly—in the abstract of the article, it states, "Drawing on the 2016 Afrobarometer survey (36 countries, 53,936 respondents), we find support for the argument that restrictive NGO laws reduce citizens’ electoral participation in national elections". In other words, in countries where it is allowed, voting is higher than where it is restricted. These are opposite conditions, one implies the other. DYK articles do not need to follow MOS and these paragraphs should be expanded with more information, not reduced into bullets. (t · c) buidhe 21:29, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
I understand, my point is, the passage you cited argues for one explanation for the effect. It does not say that the study is the one that found that effect (which is what the hook asserts). For example, if someone writes an article saying "We found that the sky is blue because ...", it does not mean that the author is the one who found that the sky is blue.

  • ☑Y Article is long enough (1987 characters), new enough (created 3 August, nominated 6 August), and is within policy
  • ☒N ALT0 has 2 issues: [46] is a primary source, a secondary source would be needed for the hook. More importantly, I don't believe the hook is correct anymore, as London got rid of its conductors on the Routemaster in 2016 ([47])
  • ☑Y ALT1 is short enough, interesting, and well cited
  • ☒N ALT2 is not at all interesting, as "clippies" is a common nickname for bus conductors, so not at all unique that they're called clippies on this route
  • ☒N File:Stagecoach LT312 (15517022428).jpg is freely licenced and looks good at low resolution (possibly with a slight crop off the top- at the discretion of the promoter). However, WP:DYKIMG says that the image "must already be in the article", which is not the case here, as File:Stagecoach LT312 (15702408625).jpg is used in the article instead. Also the image caption should probably highlight the fact that it's a bus that was formerly used on the 73 route, as it was a 3-month trial from Nov 2014 that ended
  • ☑Y QPQ done
  • Symbol question.svg PinkPanda272 ALT1 is the only acceptable hook in my opinion, if you would like another hook to run then feel free to suggest another. And can the image for the hook be added to the article as well? Joseph2302 (talk) 16:44, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Joseph2302: Thanks for the review. I appreciate the clarification regarding the rules about Primary Sources and images, I have now added the correct image to the article, and ed the caption to clarify the trial aspect. Regarding ALT0, I have reworded and linked to The Courier article that is used for the other two hooks:
I think this is accurate, as according to this BBC article [49], A small number of Heritage Routemaster buses on route 15 will continue to operate with conductors. Is this acceptable? I am fine to go with ALT1 if not though. Thanks again, PinkPanda272 (talk/contribs) 17:13, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Comment: This is something that piqued my interest - those who wanted to take down the statue of a slave trader from a long-gone era of different values were a right-wing party, while those who want it back up and are talking about "erasing our local history" are from the left. This is the opposite to what we have seen in the US and even in the exact same region as this statue. That would make good clickbait. However I'd be loathe to mention any political party in this hook, as that would seem partisan.

Symbol question.svg Attractive, well-sourced, - thank you! On good sources, offline sources accepted AGF. As we may not use the poster, I'd prefer the ALT, but could we describe a bit why? - I have a few questions regarding the article and its title, some need to be done, others just suggestion. Title: none of the sources uses that title, so why should we? I don't see "red" in a header, just "Swimsuit poster", probably capital as the name of one specific poster. Also, it doesn't belong to her, and she didn't make it, so why possessive? How about Farrah Fawcett Swimsuit poster. Even if it stays as it is, it will have to be moved because it's the wrong quotation mark for the English Wikipedia. Article: I miss an infobox, because at a glance it looks like a Faucett biography. {{infobox artwork}}, perhaps? - In the article, one thing that has to change is "we see" and "one" (man). "we" is a no-no-word in the English Wikipedia, DYK? - Perhaps read the article loud to yourself, checking for singular-plural match, word repetition, vocabulary ("assures herself"?) and such things. I confess to not understand the Monroe comparison, please try harder there. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:16, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
ps: Even if you move the article, don't move this template! Just adjust in the hook, and a friend will do the rest. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:17, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Hi Gerda, I deleted the "'s" from the title but I leaved the "red" in it. Chadwick Roberts writes "Farrah Fawcett’s ‘‘red swimsuit’’ poster" when he starts to speaking about it. There are several other websites that uses "red". I looked at the articles in the Category:Color photographs and there are many that have no infobox. Infoboxes are not used in the German Wikipedia as often as they are used here and I'm not a fan of them in most cases. So I would prefer to leave it out. I reformulated some of the sentences in the article (for example the Monroe part) and corrected some typos. I do not speak English at a near native level, so it would be very nice if you would change the mistakes you find yourself.
Thank you for explaining. A nominator's wishes are important to me. No need to say anything about the German Wikipedia here, - this is different. Thank you for moving, - I adjusted the hooks.
Mandarax, can you please work the article-was-moved-magic?
The article needs more copy-ing, but I'm not the right person. I'm also German, + not familiar with the topic. Not sure whom to ask. I'll do a round of ce, and then please check if it still means what you want. If you don't want an infobox, please make sure that all information expected there is in the lead: taken when, by whom, commissioned by whom, sales. Description: do you think someone blind reading the description would expect the photo to be as it is? I miss, for example, that her right hand is not in it, nor feet, and a description of the blanket. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:25, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! Redrobsche, I did my round, - possibly too much to still review, but if someone thinks so, they can do the review ;) - I also linked the article a few times, so people watching the other articles (company, designer, Charlie's Angels, some others) may see it's there, and work on it. Most of the other mentionings didn't have "red", by the way. - I read somewhere that it first appeared in Life & Style (magazine), - should that be mentioned? I feel that "Analysis" is too much one person's view, - are there others? - One more: should the article mention "known for Charlie's Angels" played later"? ... because we should not expect readers to know who she is, iconic poster or not. - See you tomorrow. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:45, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Statue of Francisco Franco (Melilla)

  • Comment: As I put in my summary for this article, I am aware that this title has a "disambiguation" which it looks like it doesn't need. However, as a fascist dictator, Franco had many statues, and I intend to write about some of the others soon. This isn't the most famous of them, just the last one in public.

Special occasion holding area[]

The holding area has moved to its new location at the bottom of the Approved page. Please only place approved templates there; do not place them below.

Do not nominate articles in this section—nominate all articles in the nominations section above, under the date on which the article was created or moved to mainspace, or the expansion began; indicate in the nomination any request for a specially timed appearance on the main page.
Note: Articles intended to be held for special occasion dates should be nominated within seven days of creation, start of expansion, or promotion to Good Article status. The nomination should be made at least one week prior to the occasion date, to allow time for reviews and promotions through the prep and queue sets, but not more than six weeks in advance. The proposed occasion must be deemed sufficiently special by reviewers. The timeline limitations, including the six week maximum, may be waived by consensus, if a request is made at WT:DYK, but requests are not always successful. Discussion clarifying the hold criteria can be found here: [60]; discussion setting the six week limit can be found here: [61].
April Fools' Day hooks are exempted from the timeline limit; see Wikipedia:April Fool's Main Page/Did You Know.
