QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol confirmed.svg Please first check for copyvio in the sections which existed on 30 December 2018. Once you have sorted the copyvio, you will have a very worthwhile article, I believe. Storye book (talk) 18:11, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Hey, storye book -- the article was moved from draft space to article space on Jan 16. I'm out of town this weekend so won't be editing much, but I'll check the copyvio issues when I'm back (likely Tuesday). Thanks for starting review! valereee (talk) 13:27, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah, so it wasn't an expansion? Sorry, my bad. I misunderstood because the move must have brought all the article's editing dates with it to mainspace. I have corrected the review form above; there's just the copyvio left, now. Storye book (talk) 20:51, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
No worries! I did the exact same thing myself a few days ago. I'm unable to use Earwig to compare to the SHSMO article (that site won't load for some reason today) but I'll see if they're back up tomorrow after the long weekend here in the states. valereee (talk) 17:16, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
OK, no problem. Earwig has been working here in UK today, so good luck for tomorrow! Storye book (talk) 19:49, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Storye book Finally got SHSMO to come up for me, (wasn't Earwig, it was that organization's site that wasn't working for me) and you are so right. I must have copy-pasted that paragraph, planning to reword before moving on, and forgot to do so. My bad in the extreme. I've reworded; it's still coming up with a high correlation for that page, but it's all long names of organizations/publications. valereee (talk) 14:49, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
@Valereee: Thank you for that, we're nearly there now. There are still some little bits which might slow down your DYK nom, so let's sort them out. You can re-word or re-arrange these bits easily: "at a time when women's pages were," "editor at the" x 3, "assistant to the." That's all you need to do as far as I can see.

@Storye book: I changed the 'at a time when women's pages were' and changed "editor at the" to "editor for the" in those three uses but "assistant to the Press Representative of the Panama Canal" isn't so easy. Changing it to 'the Press Representative of the Panama Canal's assistant' is confusing and "assistant for the Press Representative of the Panama Canal" feels awkward. Can that one stay? valereee (talk) 16:03, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
@Valereee: Good to go. Thank you for your patience with this, and well done. I agree that last one has to stay as it is. I look forward to seeing this on DYK. Storye book (talk) 17:24, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
@Storye book: Thank you for reviewing! I appreciate the work! valereee (talk) 13:29, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome. Storye book (talk) 14:01, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
