Elizabeth Wolley[edit]

  • Pictogram voting keep.svg The article meets all the requirements, but I would suggest amending the hook to make it clear that it refers to Queen Elizabeth I. Elizabeth I has been referred to as such since 1952, which is rather convenient since the country has had five queens named Elizabeth. Also, the subject should be referred to by her last name, as using the first name implies familiarity. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Biographies. Surtsicna (talk) 21:14, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
  • (edit conflict) ALT: ... that Queen Elizabeth I nicknamed Elizabeth Wolley, a member of her Privy Chamber, her "sweet apple"? And Surtsicna, you beat me to it, dammit. ResMar 21:24, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
    • I had a very strange feeling that somebody was going to beat me to it, so I hurried - but hey, the more the merrier. Surtsicna (talk) 21:51, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks to both of you. I take the competition as a compliment. :-) I've amended the hook to Elizabeth I, as both of you suggested. Res, I had considered the ALT hook before I submitted the DYK nomination, but as there is debate about exactly when Elizabeth Wolley entered the Queen's service, it's not possible to state with certainty that she was in the Privy Chamber in 1581 when Queen Elizabeth first referred to her as her 'sweet apple'. Res, I'm wondering whether you might consider reviewing my Walter Buckler article. It should be straightforward. I'm not aware of any issue with it now that the bare urls have been fixed. Surtsicna, when you get time, could you finish the review of my Sir John Wolley article? The issues you mentioned have been addressed. Best, NinaGreen (talk) 23:34, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
