Comment 1[edit]

First of all, I am not your assigned reviewer. But since I was developing another article Solid waste policy in the United States for V625, I was curious to look at your article. Very well developed article on the subject. But I would like to comment more on the wiki part of it. Well researched also.

Is this the wiki way of quoting directly?

I think your references are in notes and vice versa. I recommend you to post the article as soon as possible to the wiki main page for the public to view. There is a way to transfer the whole content on your page, you might want to ask your mentor to do that. --Brijesh Krishnan 14:08, 30 April 2011 (UTC) Brijesh Krishnan (talk)


I'm not sure about the direct quote Brij. I liked the format at the time, but it has since been changed by another user and I think it looks better without it. Also, that format doesn't seem to auto-adjust as well to different screen sizes, so I'd perhaps avoid it.

I'll post the article tomorrow after the reviews are supposed to be done just so it's not hopping around if someone needs to find it. NicEMyer (talk) 23:20, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

DYK instructions[edit]

This article should be eligible for appearing on the main page as a "Did you know" entry, if it is nominated it soon; it is supposed to be nominated within 5 days of being created or significantly (5x) expanded.

The instructions for nominating it are at Template talk:Did you know. Basically, all you need to do is take this code if you created a new article:

{{subst:NewDYKnom| article= | hook=... that ? | status=new | author=  }}

or this code if you expanded it

{{subst:NewDYKnom| article= | hook=... that ? | status=expanded | author= }}

and write the hook, a concise and interesting bit of info from the article beginning with "... that" and ending with a question mark. The info from the hook has to be present in the article and supported (in the article) with a citation. Someone will double-check to make sure the source says what it's claimed to say.

Once you've come up with a hook, fill in your username as the author and fill the title of the article, then add the above code, including your hook following the "hook=" part, to the top of the appropriate section for the day the article was started on the DYK template talk page. The code will produce an entry formatted like the others. After that, just keep an eye on the entry; if anyone brings up an issue with it, try to address it. I'll keep an eye out as well. If everything goes well, it will appear on the Main Page for several hours a few days from now.
