Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 16, 2015[edit]

You know the drill. I had to squeeze the summary down to around 1200 characters; was there anything I left out you'd like to see put back in? I'd appreciate it if you could check the article one more time before its day on the Main Page. - Dank (push to talk) 00:00, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

@Dank: Sadly, Sarastro1 hasn't been active on Wikipedia for about five months now. I'll try and have a look over this in his absence though. Harrias talk 07:05, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Ah I didn't know that ... thx much Harrias. - Dank (push to talk) 13:31, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
@Dank:, @Harrias:: I'm around a little bit, and have had look now. Cheers! Sarastro1 (talk) 21:30, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
I didn't want to say anything in case I scared you back off again! Harrias talk 21:34, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Oh no, it's HIM!!! Sarastro1 (talk) 21:36, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Tweaks look good. - Dank (push to talk) 21:38, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Now the article looks good, thank you! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:14, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello from the team at Featured article review![edit]


We are preparing to take a closer look at Featured articles promoted in 2004–2010 that may need a review. We started with a script-compiled list of older FAs that have not had a recent formal review. The next step is to prune the list by removing articles that are still actively maintained, up-to-date, and believed to meet current standards. We know that many of you personally maintain articles that you nominated, so we'd appreciate your help in winnowing the list where appropriate.

Please take a look at the sandbox list, check over the FAs listed by your name, and indicate on the sandbox talk page your assessment of their current status. Likewise, if you have taken on the maintenance of any listed FAs that were originally nominated by a departed editor, please indicate their status. BLPs should be given especially careful consideration.

Thanks for your help! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:39, 30 April 2015 (UTC)


It's good to have you back! I was tempted to buy the book, but I have so many books that I haven't found the time to read (and DVDs that I haven't found the time to watch) that so far I've resisted that temptation. I couldn't stop myself from buying Stephen Chalke's new history of the County Championship, though. JH (talk page) 09:06, 2 May 2015 (UTC)


Hello Sarastro, just saying welcome back from hibernation. If you do indeed keep YM's extensive library of cricketing contributions in order, that would be a fine thing. hamiltonstone (talk) 13:07, 5 May 2015 (UTC)


Don't know if you've noticed, but Ranjitsinhji has had a drive-by nom for GA. I know you did a bit of work on his article before, so wondered if you thought it was in a suitable state? Harrias talk 12:20, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
