Instructions for nominators[]

This page is for those nominations that have already been approved and are waiting to be promoted. If yours has been approved but has not yet been run on the main page, it should either be on this page or will soon be moved here, or already promoted to a Prep area or Queue ahead of an appearance on the main page.

If you wish to create a new nomination, please go to the Template talk:Did you know page; there are instructions there in a section similar to this one on how to nominate an article for DYK.

Frequently asked questions[]

Backlogged?[]

This page is often backlogged. As long as your submission is still on the page, it will stay there until someone promotes it to a preparation area. To alleviate this problem, if the approved page has more than 120 approved hooks, then sets will change twice per day (every 12 hours) instead of once per day (every 24 hours). When the backlog falls below 60 approved nominations set frequency returns to once a day.

Where is my hook?[]

If you can't find the nomination you submitted to the nominations page, and it also isn't on this page, in most cases it means your article has been approved and is either in one of the prep areas, has been 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.

  • @Muboshgu: I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but I'm afraid that the special occasion request will have to be declined. Six weeks after September 10 (the date of the nomination) is October 22, which is one week before October 29. Special occasion requests normally can't be granted beyond six weeks from the nomination date. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 04:38, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I knew it had to be roughly six weeks, and I took that as an approximate. We're really gonna be a WP:BUREAUCRACY here? Do not follow an overly strict interpretation of the letter of policies without consideration for their principles – Muboshgu (talk) 04:53, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol question.svg The article meets requirements and a QPQ has been provided. I also didn't find any close paraphrasing. The hook fact about him being the first to hit a Grand Slam in the World Series needs a footnote after the exact sentence (right now the reference for it is in the subsequent sentence). As for the special occasion request, while your comment is noted, I would have been more willing to approve the request if it was just outside by a day or two rather than a full week. As a compromise, I could perhaps suggest that the article instead go up on October 7, the start of the MLB playoffs, which is also within the six week period. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 05:40, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Respectfully, no, that doesn't work for me. There were no "playoffs" in 1920 aside from the one series, and I've had this DYK in mind for months. I delayed doing it until now to time it for the World Series. The spirit of the rule prevented me from doing it then because I understand that waiting months is too long.
I've been around here long enough to see various DYKRULES bent and broken at will because Wikipedia is not a bureaucracy. Case in point, I nominated Me and the Spitter for DYK on July 15, and it was suggested to be held for September 15, his birthday. Why can that DYK be held for promotion almost nine weeks after it was nominated, but this one can't wait seven weeks? I didn't care about that special occasion date, but I do care about this one.
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg I put a citation at the end of the hook fact sentence. I request other opinions on the special occasion date. Per The timeline limitations, including the six week maximum, may be waived by consensus, if a request is made at WT:DYK, I'll go there for that. – Muboshgu (talk) 16:19, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol confirmed.svg A very interesting article, congratulations. I found no substantive issues myself and the hook seemed interesting to me. As I value additional primary sourcing for direct quotations, I would suggest adding a direct cite to the NYT ([3]). One possible concern is that the NYT article is a tiny bit more nuanced than the direct quote suggests, maybe the direct quotation in the article itself could be expanded? If you disagree, I will still consider approving this is as it is.

However, Earwig picks up a likely copyvio from able2know.org/topic/196794-1. Could you address the similar phrasing?

PS: This is my first review, If I made a mistake, please give me a hint! WatkynBassett (talk) 06:43, 14 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi WatkynBassett, thank you for your review. The text on the able2know blog was taken from Wikipedia in 2012, specifically this version of the Jack Johnson article. I brought text from the current version of that same article with this , and in my comment provided attribution as required by the WP:CWW guideline. Thanks for finding the direct cite, which is definitely better than just having the Smithsonian version – I have added it the whole piece as an image (it is out of copyright), as it provides excellent context. Onceinawhile (talk) 10:29, 14 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Onceinawhile - Many thanks for addressing my points so quickly! I somehow missed that the able2know-part was a backwards copy, thanks for clarifying this in detail. Using the whole NYT-piece as a picture is a nice idea and well executed. In my opinion, this is good to go - I updated the DYK checklist above in this spirit. WatkynBassett (talk) 06:55, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Onceinawhile: Quick question: Did I miss something technical or is there another reason, why the hook is not being promoted? Sorry for the newbie-question by a first-time reviewer ...

@WatkynBassett and Onceinawhile: Symbol question.svg hi there! I had promoted this, but reverted after checking the length of the hook. At 203 characters, it weighs in (heh) a little too long. Might I suggest the shorter: theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (she/her) 09:21, 3 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Theleekycauldron: thank you for looking at this further. I had always understood there was some (minor) flexibility in the 200 rule ("…no more than about 200 characters…")

I do like the concision of your alternate, but I think it loses the deep significance of the event. Sounds more like it is an overconfident racist in a bar-fight. Actually it was the first time in history that a black person defeated the person considered (by white America) top of their field in any professional sport. I don’t have a written source stating that so directly, but the National Museum of African American History and Culture has a whole room dedicated to it which places it in that context. The NYT comment is the most impactful way of communicating its import that I could find. Onceinawhile (talk) 12:49, 3 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've raised a query at Wikipedia_talk:Did_you_know#Inconsistent_rules_on_hook_length about an inconsistency in the rules, but in the mean time to formally propose the suggested change and hopefully move this nomination forward: CSJJ104 (talk) 19:37, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A possibility might also to use NYT, if such abbreviations are allowed. –LordPeterII (talk) 22:03, 10 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Theleekycauldron: it's been more than a month since this was pulled from the queue, and we are only talking about how best to remove 3 characters from the hook. What would you recommend I do to help get this resolved? Onceinawhile (talk) 19:28, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Onceinawhile: well, the hook needs to be under 200 characters – ALT2 doesn't fly, we don't use first names that way. We could always take ALT0 and switch "African Americans" to "Black people", or something like that. theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (she/her) 19:37, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Theleekycauldron: that is a great solution. We use the same terminology in the first line of the Black Lives Matter article:
  • ALT0: ... that The New York Times claimed that if Johnson beat Jeffries, black people would "misinterpret his victory as justifying claims to much more than mere physical equality with their white neighbors"?

Created by KiraLiz1 (talk). Self-nominated at 22:57, 7 September 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]

General: Article is new enough and long enough
Policy: Article is sourced, neutral, and free of copyright problems
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol confirmed.svg @KiraLiz1 Ok, so I feel as if there are many problems with the article. Earwig, a copyvio finder, finds that there is a 76% chance that this article has copyright violations. This alone would immediately prevent the article from being approved. However, the article itself only has 4 different sources which is way too low for an article like this. Finally, The hook itself suffers from a lack of context. Although the fact that the payout was 526 times larger than the compensatory damages is interesting the hook doesn't tell how much those compensatory damages were which gives the hook a lack on context. I'm not gonna fail this immediately but these points have to be addressed in order for the hook to be approved. Onegreatjoke (talk) 21:26, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Onegreatjoke I did run the Earwig detector before submitting it and saw the same. However, the detected plagiarism is because the two high-chance sources are both the full text of the actual Supreme Court decision, which I quoted from in the article. There were unfortunately not that many scholarly sources on the topic.

Let's see if I can do a better version of the hook: ... that in 1993, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld West Virginia's largest punitive damages award in history, awarding ten million dollars - 526 times larger than the compensatory damages? Source: [2] KiraLiz1 | she/her 22:27, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Symbol confirmed.svg @KiraLiz1 Alright, I think I can approve the article with the new hook. The hook is definitely much better than before. I'm going to assume good faith with the copyvio and lack of sources if what your saying is correct. Though next time please put the page number for your hook citation. Onegreatjoke (talk) 14:41, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@KiraLiz1 and Onegreatjoke: Symbol question.svg I'm a bit concerned that so much of the article is cited to an SSRN preprint, including the hook – is there a published version that can be cited? theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (she/her) 20:01, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@|Theleekycauldron It looks like the paper was published by the University of Texas back in 1993 - the SSRN version was what I was able to access from behind a work firewall. I'm not actually sure what it is, to be honest. KiraLiz1 | she/her 20:16, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Symbol question.svg Interesting places, GA on fine sources, subscription sources accepted AGF, no copyvio obvious. The image is licensed and shows well. Two things regarding the image: it would not tell me what shielings are (and I didn't know), which the lead image could do, and if it is not taken, readers will be all on their imagination about the isolation and the experimentation. If you insist, I'll approve the hook as it is, but perhaps you could say just a little bit more about the kind of isolation meant. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:44, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's very kind. The isolation is simply that shielings were summer encampments up in the hills (with transhumance between valley and hill).

Bruxton Sky Harbor I don't see how the hook is interesting. She was a health official that studied childhood obesity. I have never heard of anything that would make a slim person studying obese people odd. If we're working with opposites, the hook could also say that she wasn't an obese child since it was childhood obesity that she specifically researched. That hook would work just as bad as the current one. SL93 (talk) 00:38, 25 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm also a little reticent to promote this hook – if only because obesity tends to come with an increase in height, and this hook suggests the opposite. Wouldn't want to give off the wrong image. And SL93 isn't wrong in his analysis, either. theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (she/her) 23:31, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for your input, EmilySarah99! If I understood you correctly, you find the original hook (about scheduling) "expected", not ALT1. That leaves ALT1, the one about Camilla's role, as the best hook in your opinion, right? Surtsicna (talk) 17:23, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Surtsicna it appears I did get the numbers mixed around. I would say the one about Camilla being crowned is the most intersting, I'm just not entirely sure the announcement in 2005 was 'official'. From my understanding, it was only the Princess of Wales title she refused, not the Queen. And Unlimitedlead you were right, I shouldn't have been so negative. EmilySarah99 (talk) 23:02, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Out of all the potential hooks, I actually find ALT2 to be my least personal favorite.

Hawkeye7 (discuss) 19:54, 16 September 2022 (UTC) One point: the opening sentence says "discussing how societies have developed, evolved, and collapsed".

Fan art of Gimli

Improved to Good Article status by Chiswick Chap (talk). Nominated by LordPeterII (talk) at 16:52, 20 September 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]

  • Erm, since Gimli was the only dwarf in the cited conversation where dwarvish heroism was expressed, it must have been him indeed. Like all dwarves he was into workmanship, which the (cited) gates of mithril and steel certainly exemplify. Chiswick Chap (talk) 20:12, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @Chiswick Chap: Hi there, the lead says "Scholars have commented that Gimli exemplifies dwarvish heroism and love of craftsmanship". I think the body needs to point to these comments, if that's the case. The fact that a scholar says all dwarves are into workmanship doesn't mean a scholar has said Gimli exemplifies dwarvish love of craftsmanship; the fact that a scholar says a conversation between Elrond and Gimli expressed dwarvish heroism doesn't mean a scholar has said Gimli exemplifies dwarvish heroism. I hope that makes sense. It's also good to be mindful of WP:SYNTH; even if a conclusion seems obvious from the text, we should be careful about drawing it. "A scholar said that in the conversation between Elrond and Gimli, Gimli expressed dwarvish heroism" is fine, but saying Gimli exemplified dwarvish heroism needs to be supported by a source that says that. Cheers, Chocmilk03 (talk) 20:24, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • The lead explicitly says scholars, i.e. the claim is not in Wikipedia's voice and never has been, and this is supported by the cited text in the article body. I am not the DYK nom for this item and do not wish to take on that burden by default; if nom wants my help it will be available to him. I have pinged nom already below. Chiswick Chap (talk) 20:29, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Sorry, I may not be explaining myself clearly (and will explain further in case it helps LordPeterII). I'm not saying the claim is in Wikipedia's voice. "Scholars say Gimli exemplified dwarvish heroism"; this isn't stated in the body. What is stated in the body is that a scholar says that in a conversation between Gimli and Elrond, "dwarvish heroism is expressed". That's quite a different thing. Similarly, scholars say Gimli "exemplified ... love of craftsmanship"; a scholar saying dwarves love craftsmanship isn't a scholar saying that Gimli exemplified it. If scholars indeed say Gimli exemplified these things, then that's great, but that isn't currently what the body of the article says. Anyway, I don't want to hold up the DYK approval and will leave it up to reviewer/nominator whether they agree with the point and think it needs addressing, I guess.

General eligibility:

  • "Using past tense when discussing the plot or any of its elements (except backstory), rather than the historical present tense." - basically all of it. The backstory "was born in" is probably acceptable, but not the events detailed in LoTR.
  • Done.
  • Done.
  • Fictography – a character description that is written like a biography - this one I can accept bending somewhat, since we do need the born, too young for Ereborn, Aglarond, sailed into the west bits.
  • Noted.
Second, I would also minimize the sentences that don't mention Gimli, which there are many of. This is a different one of the Wikipedia:Good article criteria, specifically "3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail" For example,
  • the fifth paragraph about Amon Hen has five sentences and only mentions Gimli once, I'd radically shorten, something like "The company was divided, and Gimli joined Legolas and Aragorn in pursuing Merry and Pippin who had been kidnapped by Orcs." We can leave Boromir out entirely, though a crucial part of LoTR, he has nothing to do with Gimli.
  • Done.
  • "Gimli and the others continued their search for the hobbits, finding a resurrected Gandalf in Fangorn Forest. He led them to Rohan's capital, Edoras, where he roused King Théoden to war against Saruman." - the word "He" is confusing. I've read the book, so know you mean Gandalf, but considering that the article is about Gimli ... Honestly, I'd again drastically shorten, remove both these sentences outright, and go straight from Rohan to Helm's Deep, which is important to Gimli's story.
  • Done.
  • We can probably even leave Gandalf's death and resurrection out, it's confusing and has nothing to do with Gimli. Gimli witnesses Gandalf casting out Saruman, that's enough, elide Gandalf's story before then.
  • Done.
  • Seventh paragraph, "Gimli accompanied Aragorn ..." Again, drastically shorten to just the parts that touch Gimli. Something like "Gimli accompanied Aragorn on the Paths of the Dead, and the battles of Pelargir and Pelennor Fields. He took part in the final battle against Sauron, the Battle of the Morannon in front of the Black Gate. There he recognized Pippin Took's feet..."
  • Done.
We don't need to retell the plot of LoTR in this article, just Gimli's part in it. I can understand we want to make sure readers have the opportunity to read that plot, but for that I'd put a Template:Main at the top of this section, referring readers to The Lord of the Rings#Plot.

Second, the GA criteria bits as above, I think they're very fixable.

  • GRuban, sorry for the mixup. It looks as if you and Chocmilk03 decided to do a full review of whether this is really a Good Article, while I accepted its promotion to GA status and just reviewed it for DYK. Is that really what we are supposed to do here - to second-guess whether it qualifies as GA?

  • Thank you! I agree with the expansion. I apologize as well, I could have marked that I was reviewing or something once I realized it wouldn't just be a quick pass or fail. Honestly, I didn't mean to re-do the GA review, I just read the article and recognized the WP:UNIVERSE criteria, which I was pretty sure were part of GA, and then had to look again.

  • @MelanieN: Hiya! I thought the expansion was good too, have suggested wikilinking to further assist. I wasn't reviewing the article as such, but in case it's helpful, in the reviewing guide, it does say "The fact that an article has been accepted as a Good article should not be considered an assumption that the article meets these criteria". You don't need to do a full GA-level re-review for each article, of course, but similar to other DYK nominations, it's good to check that there aren't any issues with the article (for example, I've seen GA-approved articles before that had missing citations, grammatical issues etc).

Overall: Symbol question.svg Good to go! I am basically approving, but I think ALT1 could be phrased even better: As I understand, 10 °C is not the lower, but already an upper bound. So you could say "below 10 °C" and "properly reproduce", right? I can also see both hooks being combined as one, if you want to highlight both facts. If not, I'll approve the current ones. –LordPeterII (talk) 14:10, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's not a great phrasing, but it isn't quite an upper bound, they did observe some reproduction at 15C and didn't test any temperatures between the two. "... that the Antarctic worm Scottnema lindsayae cannot reproduce at temperatures above 15 °C (59 °F)?" maybe? I don't quite like "cannot", the study found a single one of them managed to mature into an adult at the temperature, but I'm not sure of a pithy way to put it and 15C really does look like the upper limit so "above" doesn't feel misleading to me. I do like this hook better than the other one and can't think of a good way to work both of them into them it a single hook. Rusalkii (talk) 18:11, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, "upper bound" was bad phrasing. I meant that temperatures below 10C were better than those above 10C – at least that's how I read the article (the Wiki one, don't have access to Springer atm). As for a combined hook, I thought of something like this:
  • ALT2 ... that the reproductive cycle of the southernmost worm species, Scottnema lindsayae, is disturbed at temperatures above 10 °C (50 °F)?
To be fair, "Antarctic" might be just as hooky as "southernmost", I'd leave the decision on that to you.
Also, I see there is now an image in the article (File:NMNH-Scottnema lindsayi-000001.jpg), do you want to run with it? No guarantee it will be shown, but there's no harm in trying. –LordPeterII (talk) 20:50, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay so I think ALT0 should be tweaked to read as: "... that there was an internet challenge to eat Tide Pods?

ALT1: ... that Tide Pods have been were called likened to a forbidden fruit in Internet memes about eating them? Source: https://www.vox.com/2018/1/4/16841674/tide-pods-eating-meme-tide-pod-challenge

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it. Onegreatjoke (talk) 14:14, 18 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Approved, with the understanding that there might be further brainstorming/workshopping of hooks. Symbol question.svg Submitted to DYK on same day as GA, long enough, well sourced, neutrally written and informative (and no issues with tempting readers to do the wrong thing). No copyvio issues (everything Earwig flags up as possible problems are direct quotes, plus a direct match on WikiMD whose text most likely originated on WP). QPQ is not required. So, on to the hooks: I think ALT0 is the most problematic because it's hyping the Internet challenge, which is exactly what we don't want (plus it's a bit "so what?"). For that reason, I prefer ALT2 and ALT3. If you're keen on ALT1, I might suggest changing the verb tense from "have been" to "were" so that it's clear it's something that happened in the past (and if you're still quoting it in memes, you're so 4 years ago). If you're still up for brainstorming and workshopping more ALT hooks, how about one about the product's appearance and/or about Senator Schumer wanting to eat one (as a critique)? Soulbust is right that it still seems like there are many possibilities. Anyway congratulations on getting this to GA. Cielquiparle (talk) 10:34, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Onegreatjoke: @Cielquiparle: I like ALT1 the best to be honest. It adds a little bit of humor to the front page of Wikipedia which I'm a personal fan of, and I think it'd offer some real intrigue among those who stumble upon it. Perhaps we could also include an image (I included it below) to the DYK hooks to provide a visual component. ALT0, 2 and 3 are good with me too. Although I do get the concern about "so what" element of ALT0. Maybe it can be tweaked to include the consequences of that challenge, like increased reports of poisoning by the pods during the challenge's peak? Let me know what you all think. I do think an ALT about Schumer's comments can also be written up but I think because he is a prominent US politician it could kinda take the focus off of the pods? Idk maybe not, I'm just thinking out loud kinda about that.

@Soulbust: Sorry I wasn't clear. All the hooks are approved! So we can just leave them as is, and the DYK promoter will choose the one they like the best, which may very well be ALT0 or ALT1. We don't need to brainstorm any more hooks either, unless you really want to.
As for the image(s) used in the article: While I'm reasonably confident that the photograph of the Tide Pod which you took could be considered Fair Use at the very least, I'm not 100% sure if it actually is Commons-safe. In the case of the other image contained within the article, Wikimedia Commons specifically says not to upload images of product packaging here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Packaging. (Did this come up during the GA review?) For this reason, I've now changed my approval of this DYK to "pending" until we can get clarification on the copyright status for both images. (I will raise this on the DYK Talk page and ping you.) If it turns out that the photograph you took is "Fair Use" but not Commons-safe, we can keep it in the article, but we can't use it on the Main Page per Wikipedia and DYK rules. Cielquiparle (talk) 05:30, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Cielquiparle: I'm totally okay with running the hook w/o an image. I was just trying to guage if others maybe wanted to run it with an image, but I understand the copyright might not allow for that. I think the image of the pod itself is probaly fine but the other image does include the overall packaging with a logo so I'm unsure about that one. Soulbust (talk) 05:47, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Soulbust: Per the "De minimis" page on Commons, it appears the Tide bottle and product photo is fine! https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:De_minimis <- Search for "product" on this page. So now just looking for confirmation that the close-up product shot really is Commons-safe. (We recently had an issue with a photo of the IKEA shark having to be removed from the Main Page as a derivative work, so I just wanted to be sure.) Will post to the Talk page now.

Not to step on your review, SL93, but I don't think the hook is particularly interesting, unfortunately. If this were flat terrain, curving 18 times in 4 miles would be an interesting fact. However, many railroads in Connecticut are like this, and several railroad lines contain more frequent curves. Perhaps another hook could be suggested. Epicgenius (talk) 14:04, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Epicgenius It's fine. I value the input because I am not as familiar with the topic. I have updated the interesting part of the template. SL93 (talk) 19:34, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for the input Epicgenius, I'll draft an ALT1 when I get the chance.

SL93,This is only my fourth DYK nomination, I thought you didn't need to do a QPQ until after 5? Regarding TylerCityStation, yes, it is technically a self-published source. However, it's run by prominent Connecticut railroad historian Robert Belletzkie Here's a New Haven Register article from 2009 detailing his work. In addition, the material on the website is generally well-sourced to both primary and secondary sources. For example, the entry on the Ridgefield Station is sourced to this book], an article from the New Haven Railroad Historical and Technical Association's Shoreliner Magazine, and local accounts of the depot's restructuring. So in conclusion, I don't think the nature of the source's publication undermines its reliability in this case.--🚂Locomotive207-talk🚂 21:01, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Locomotive207 I updated the QPQ. I will approve the source as written by an expert in the field. I recommend including that information in the nomination whenever similar sources are used. Just waiting on a new hook. SL93 (talk) 22:44, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
