Hi Harrias, thanks yet again for your support on the BR articles, looks like we'll just have the first and last to concern ourselves with in due course! In the meantime, do you fancy taking a look at Richie Benaud and if you're happy the sourcing concerns at ITNC has been largely addressed, would you consider adding it to RD? Cheers.

The Richie article looks in a decent state now, so I've posted that. I don't really know my way around ITN, so hopefully I've done it right! No worries with the Boat Race articles, just a shame that 1829 hasn't made it yet. I assume after 1829 and 2015, the parent article is the next challenge? Harrias talk 11:46, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Well I may try to at least get it to GAN by tonight, and hope for a review before tomorrow evening.... Then yes, 2015 to GAN then FAC while I'm working in the main article, all help grateful received!!! The Rambling Man (talk) 11:52, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
@Both: Would you be interested in conducting a review on this GAN? Vensatry (ping) 06:44, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Boat Race reviews[edit]

Sport Barnstar Hires.png The Running Man Barnstar
Hey Harrias, just a quick barnstar to say thanks for the many reviews of Boat Race articles you've conducted over the past year. As of this morning, I completed my (initial) goal of ensuing that every Boat Race had, not only its own article, but one that was either of GA or FA status: we now have 158 GAs and 3 FAs that we can all be proud of! It doesn't stop here, for me at least, I'm going to keep up with improving the quality of the GAs and look for more FA opportunities. Plus, there's the small matter of 70 Women's Boat Race articles to get up and running! But thanks again, and for your recent help on the inaugural race article... I couldn't have done it without your help. The Rambling Man (talk) 15:42, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

List of women's international cricket hat-tricks FLC[edit]

I finally responded to your review of my FLC, and went to review your list back... only to find I took so long it had already been promoted! I owe you one review, then- next nomination you have (at FLC or elsewhere) let me know and I'll take a look at it. --PresN 02:55, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks and ...[edit]

Jiang Biwei is the lead hook in the set you kindly loaded into the DYK queue, thanks. I think the hook should say "nude one" and not just "nude" as without this word it fails to have the intending meaning. This was the wording originally agreed. Could you assist? Victuallers (talk) 16:05, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

@Victuallers: I'm afraid I disagree, I think the wording works better as it is now, rather than the proposed hook. Harrias talk 17:26, 23 April 2015 (UTC) That's OK ... as long as makes sense to someone. Cheers 17:48, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

2nd person in DYK hooks[edit]

Sorry I didn't get a chance to respond to this before it got taken off the page. But ... I'm not aware of any discussion I could point you to. However, I know we've done similar hooks in the past that were not on April Fool's.

See Hypoalgesic effect of swearing. The hook that ran on Aug. 21, 2013 was "... that you should swear when you hurt yourself?" It got a lot of views, which is the idea .., you want people to clock on the bolded link, so (I have understood) we allow a little bit of deviation from our usual stylistic structures for that.

I suppose you could start a thread about this at WT:DYK if you want. Daniel Case (talk) 20:04, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Probably not worth the energy. DYK people are .... odd. Best for your mental state to leave it and fix things when they appear on the main page. As usual. The Rambling Man (talk) 20:59, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
