BL Telescopii[edit]

Created by Casliber (talk). Self nominated at 05:31, 16 July 2014 (UTC).

  • Symbol confirmed.svg The article is new, neutral, long enough (more than 650 words) and covers all the much needed information. The hook is pretty interesting, very straightforward, and well cited. SyFuelIgniteBurned 09:02, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Syfuel, did you check the sources for close paraphrasing? Yoninah (talk) 23:47, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Yoninah - I did, I noticed some paraphrasing, but to me, it doesn't seem to be too close, since a number of the sentences have been reorganized and restructured. Please note this is my first time I'm reviewing an article, so I'm extremely sorry if I made any mistakes. :( SyFuelIgniteBurned 07:27, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
  • There can be some words and combinations that are very hard to substitute without altering the meaning. HAppy to have a tweak if anyone can list any specific concerns. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 09:14, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
    I don't think closeness to the sources is a problem here; the language is too technical to write away from in most places and where it isn't there is no close paraphrasing (from the sources I can check). This line is dodgy though: "...too faint to be seen with the unaided eye.", as it doesn't make clear what is too faint (the shift? both the apparent magnitudes?) and the cited source says that a 7.09 apparent magnitude would be visible from the sites classified as 1 and 2. This sentence is unfinished: "This, coupled with its high velocity, indicates it is a runaway star, and that some violent event" Some violent event did what? (I like a good cliffhanger, but I can't wait until next week for the exciting conclusion to BL Telescopii. I bet some violent event is Bobby's half-brother and their blood types match so it can donate a kidney and save Bobby's life and he can then get to the airport before Diana gives in to Conrad's blackmailing and goes with him to be married in the Republic of Buenaguas.)

  • Ok - I clarified thusly. It is just visible when at its brightest on a really really dark night miles away from civilization....but otherwise it is to all intents and purposes not visible.....Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 13:02, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Symbol voting keep.svg OK, ready to go, per SyFuel's review and my supplementary checks for on the sourcing. (and 10 kudos points to Cas Liber for ignoring my imaginary soap-opera based sarcasm) Belle (talk) 13:18, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
