Noah in Islam[edit]

hi Herald,

It's forbidden to illustrate images of prophets in Islam. I'm only taking out the images.

Please read this page. -The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 17:29, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Nirmala (novel)[edit]

The article Nirmala (novel) you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Nirmala (novel) for things which need to be addressed.

Hey, TH - I fixed all but adding a Reception section and expanding the Background. Ball is in your court. I'll copy edit whatever you write. AtsmeConsult 02:12, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether there was a reception comment or something like that in those days in India. Premchand was held in reverence then and now and none of his other novels have that reception section. Now with the background, the reason which failed it last time. I have tried my best to include the entire content available in the internet. I once spotted an excerpt, the dialogue between Nirmala and Rukhmini, when she was dying and handing over her daughter into her hands. I forgot the PDF and only have the Hindi version. If I could include it as an excerpt in background, its done. It actually summarizes the entire novel as well as the novel's message. I'm searching the full English version for months. -The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 02:24, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

@Jaguar and Atsme:..Thanks a lot for helping me to achieve my first GA, after 10000 edits. Thanks again and again.. -The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 11:31, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
YAY!!! *<:o) Congratulations, TH!! Great job!!! Keep 'em coming! AtsmeConsult 19:27, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

PS: If you hurry, you can nominate it for DYK because it is an expanded, recently promoted GA. AtsmeConsult 19:51, 18 April 2015 (UTC) DYK eligibility scan results:

  • Prose size (text only): 6048 characters (1014 words) "readable prose size"
  • Article created by The Herald on April 4, 2014
  • Article has appeared on Did You Know before <---I think because of expansion it can appear again - will check to be sure
  • Assuming article is at 5x now, expansion began 175 edits ago on April 5, 2014
Joint venture....? Lets do it..-The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 02:46, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Would love to take the lead but am embroiled in my essay User:Atsme/sandbox_Advocacy_ducks at the moment, not to mention the 14 Infallibles, Ismah, and the Taj Mahal. If you do move forward on it, I recommend using the following hook or something like it - The marriage of a young teenaged girl to an older man, the question of dowry, and consequently mismatched marriages and related issues set the stage for this novel.

Surya Bahadur Thapa[edit]

That's all I can do for today - have fixed the 70s, 80s 90s but out of time to tackle the more recent stuff. I hope you don't mind how much I deleted, but it's been hard to find references. Especially NB I took out the part about him being charged after the June 1985 bombings - I don't think that should stay unreferenced in a biography but I couldn't find a source. I may not be able to help for next several days; good luck with making further progress.Taknaran (talk) 04:13, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Pact of Steel as GA[edit]

Good morning, I just saw that you just gave GA status to the Pact of Steel article. I am sincerely puzzled about that decision. For me, the article is barely a start class article. The background section is a joke, there is nothing about the reasons that pushed Italy and Germany to sign the pact, the paragraph about Japan is at the best undue weight. Last but not least, there is nothing about the consequences of the pact, which were enormous. Thanks for your answer. Alex2006 (talk) 08:49, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for writing to me. I could see no such problems which would have stopped the article from a GA top icon. They are well referenced and meets all other GA criteria. Though I felt in the beginning like you about the missing of a consequences section, (see the review page please), a good amount of reasoning and results are given in the article. IMO, it's fine. Even then, if you feel that I was wrong, since you are more experienced in these, reassess it and please let me know. Thanks.. :) -The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 09:03, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I think that I'll do that. Nothing personal against you or the proponent, of course, but I think that this article still needs a lot of work before reaching GA status. Bye, Alex2006 (talk) 09:19, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi again Alex2006. I think it's sad that you didn't participate in the GA-review with additional comments if you think the article is far from reaching GA-status. Personally, I find words like "The background section is a joke" somewhat offensive, as I wrote that section. I too see no real or serious problems with the article, and I've written and reviewed many GA-articles. Best, Jonas Vinther • (speak to me!) 13:12, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Hallo Jonas, you should not feel offended, (and if you feel so, I beg your pardon: I respect your work here) it is just that I know the subject moderately well and, as I wrote you before the assessment, I think that the article lacked (and still lacks) a lot of necessary information. But you are right, I should have been there during the assessment, but unfortunately I noticed it only this morning. The other possibility, which I take seriously, is that I did not understand yet what "good article" means (I only collaborated to help reaching GA status to a couple of them, like this one, which now has FA status). I'll ask a couple of expert friends and, if they agree with my opinion, when I will have time to work seriously on it I will ask for a reassessment and collaborate to bring the necessary information there. Bye, Alex2006 (talk) 13:40, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
