  • Symbol question.svg Replacing in suggestions area. Questions have been raised about the hook and referencing which need addressing. Espresso Addict (talk) 14:51, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

I raised the questions in Wikipedia talk:Did you know#Hook needs tweaking. I would suggest a hook similar to "... that the 15.4 metres (51 ft) long Anantashayana Vishnu (pictured) is the longest X in India?", where X needs to be replaced with a good description of what exactly it is the longest of. If there are aspects of the original hook that are not part of the definition of "longest in India", then these can be added at the front, e.g. " "... that the 15.4 metres (51 ft) long exposed rock cut structure Anantashayana Vishnu (pictured) is the longest X in India?" or whatever flows best and has all the necessary information.

Symbol question.svg This is an expansion article. Pre-expansion size was 811 characters of readable prose. 5X would 4,055. Right now, it has 2,755 characters of readable prose. — Maile (talk) 15:16, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Symbol possible vote.svg Confirmed: the article needs another 1300 prose characters to qualify as a 5x expansion for DYK. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:54, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Article is a five-fold expansion and is new enough and just long enough. The hook is appropriately sourced and the image licensed. Going with ALT1. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 14:11, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
