12th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry[edit]

  • Comment: Please excuse me if I've formatted anything the wrong way, I've never actually done this before. I'd also like to note that the article does contain an image, specifically a bas relief carving depicting the regiment's assault on the Bliss Barn at Gettysburg. I'm not including it in my nomination because I didn't think it would be meaningful at DYK's image size, but if someone else thinks it would work, by all means, include it.--Fyre2387 (talkcontribs) 19:34, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol delete vote.svg Formatting is fine, however the article is not good for a DYK due to the fact that it is not new. It has been as a constant size of about 647 for many months till your recent expansion, which however brought it only to 876 words. If you look at the DYK rules, DYKs need to be either new (created within ~5 days) or expanded 5x within that period. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk to me 03:22, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I knew that, but I thought it would qualify under eligibility criterion 1D: "Articles that have been worked on exclusively in a user or user talk subpage and then moved (or in some cases pasted) to the article mainspace are considered new as of the date they reach the mainspace." I only moved it on May 7.--Fyre2387 (talkcontribs) 23:16, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Fyre is right, it does qualify (moved) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 11:24, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Article moved to mainspace on 7 May; new enough, long enough, well-referenced. No close paraphrasing seen, other than words commonly used in war articles. Hook ref verified; I tweaked the hook to indicate which side the regiment was on. My only question is why you didn't include mention of the number of soldiers who served in the regiment and how many were lost to bullets or disease? Yoninah (talk) 21:55, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
  • No particular reason, just an oversight really. I've added a line about casualties.--Fyre2387 (talkcontribs) 21:51, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Thanks. I just noticed the number of enlisted in the infobox. Good to go. Yoninah (talk) 06:03, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
