  • Symbol question.svg The article is long enough, timely nominated, and well/clearly written. There don't seem to be any copyright problems. The hook is interesting. There is one problem, however: the hook specifies three facts, and all three have to be specifically stated and cited in the article.
  • "who introduced Richard Wagner to Michael Bakunin": I didn't find this specified in the article.
  • "was arrested for his activity in the May Uprising in Dresden" - the article says he was "captured" but doesn't specifically link his capture to the uprising.
  • "was the last prisoner released" - this is stated in the article and cited so it is OK.

I don't have any doubt that these facts are true; however, they do have to be explicitly stated in the article with appropriate references. If you can provide those statements and citations we will be good to go. --MelanieN (talk) 23:22, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for reviewing so well. Of the three editors working, one said he has no access to the sources, nor have I, let's see what we can do. Drop Bakunin, for example:
ALT1: ... that composer and music director August Röckel, who was active in the May Uprising in Dresden along with his friend Richard Wagner, was arrested and was the last prisoner released? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:30, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg I've tweaked the alt hook slightly for readability, and this one is good to go! --MelanieN (talk) 08:49, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
