  • Symbol possible vote.svg While an interesting hook, I have concerns about the article's writing. In particular, it reads like a promotional peace for Rosenbloom rather than an encyclopedic article. In addition, the sourced used is Mentalfloss, and I'm not sure if it's a reliable source for Wikipedia purposes. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 23:48, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Note: Susmuffin has since added an {{advertisement}} tag to the article, meaning the nomination cannot be approved until that is addressed. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 00:22, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
  • OK, I'll see if I can find someone to give the article a style read through. I changed the source link for the DYK to be a link to the project that Rosenbloom works on, I wasn't sure if that was too much like a link to her own web page (even though that is not her site). Thanks for the review. Jessamyn (talk) 01:13, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
  • I made some changes and others made some changes and I think the article reads much better now and not promotional. Jessamyn (talk) 01:00, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, the article looks better now. However, I do have some concerns about the coverage in the article. Specifically, the coverage in the article appears to be more about the project she's part of instead. There are some articles about her used as sources, but I'm not sure if they really establish her notability. I'll do the full review soon, but I'll need to ask for a second opinion on the subject's notability. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 00:17, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Death Salon[edit]

I can't prove it of course, but the death salons have been around much longer than stated in this article, and they were not created by "The Order of the Good Death". Funny story: when my brother was dying he figured it's be fun and informative to attend one of those salons, so that people would have a change to meet someone was doing the dying. He was quickly disinvited: "This is for people who are new to dying. We don't think they're ready for you." So maybe we can tone it down a bit with the promotion, OK?

I found an article that shows that "Death Café's" have been reported on as early as 2010. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/never-say-die-far-from-it-in-paris-death-caf233-2121850.html Vexations (talk) 03:30, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
My understanding is that the Death Salon is a brand that these people have put on their own unique way of having these conversations. I agree, death cafes and discussions are an older thing. Jessamyn (talk) 15:21, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
Jessamyn, my understanding is that this is a organization that has had a total of 5 events: Los Angeles (2013), London (2014), San Francisco (2014), Malibu (2015) and Philadelphia (2015). They have trademarked the name "as an attempt to maintain the integrity of the idea we have created". It just wasn't really their idea. It was their "brand".

No disagreement from me. I think you're right. Jessamyn (talk) 15:56, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

I could not find any birth details such as the date and place of birth. ThatMontrealIP (talk) 15:57, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
