Solsbury Hill[edit]

Hi, Thanks for your review at Talk:Solsbury Hill/GA1. I think I've dealt with most of the comments, but could you clarify which citations you feel don't support the claims made - the numbering has changed - then I will try to address them.— Rod talk 16:58, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Fishing_Creek_(North_Branch_Susquehanna_River)[edit]

Thanks for asking. I would be glad to look at Fishing_Creek_(North_Branch_Susquehanna_River) but I am pretty busy in real life and it may take me some time.

@Ruhrfisch: Thanks for agreeing to do this. The article's talk page is the best place to comment. My internet access is pretty inconsistent now so it may be a while before I can respond. --Jakob (talk) 07:27, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Is there anything else that you'd definitively liked changed?842U (talk) 12:25, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
@842U: The few sentences are unreferenced. --Jakob (talk) 13:02, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
By Wikipedia guidelines, every sentence doesn't have to be referenced. Is there something of substance that you feel isn't referenced that I can provide a reference for?842U (talk) 13:53, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
@842U: By DYK guidelines, every paragraph must be referenced. --Jakob (talk) 14:03, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Can you please cite your source for that? 842U (talk) 02:48, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

You have noticed there are no uncited paragraphs? 842U (talk) 14:02, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
There are two uncited sentences. --Jakob (talk) 14:09, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

I added a reference to the Honours section on Paco Campos. Thank you '''tAD''' (talk) 00:28, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I don't know how to state what I said about making a DYK review any differently. This issue was also discussed on the DYK talk page. GA reviews are different from DYK reviews. I don't know why you're defending a novice reviewer submitting a half-baked review. If this is how he'll review future noms, someone else will certain stop him again. Best, Yoninah (talk) 18:34, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
True, but some of the criteria are the same. Neutrality is neutrality, reliable sources are reliable whether they're used for GAN or DYK, and if an article lacks copyvio at GAN, it still lacks copyvio at DYK. --Jakob (talk) 18:46, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't have time to search all my contributions, but I did have a spate of GA noms for DYK that did have close paraphrasing. Someone else made the same point you're making on the DYK talk page, but experience shows that the basic DYK criteria must at least be checked, not assumed. Yoninah (talk) 18:57, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
@Yoninah: You have a point there. --Jakob (talk) 12:42, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
