Carol I Mosque[edit]

Grand Mosque of Constanța

5x expanded by Birzee (talk). Self nominated at 03:35, 13 January 2014 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg New user with no prior DYKs so no QPQ needed. Article is fivefold expanded within the 5 last days and over 1500 characters. It is mostly properly sourced, but I think we should have a source for the second sentence of the lede (nick name for mosque). As for the hook, it is sourced to something that seems to be a travel agency site; so I would like the nominator to comment on the reliability of that source. (The article itself looks very serious; there was also an English version). It seems to me that the fact in the hook is also in reference 3 (Romanian Television), so maybe we could use that source for the hook instead? Regards, Iselilja (talk) 06:04, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
"is the first structure"==> "was the first structure"
I changed the hook as it was built quite a while ago. Victuallers (talk) 14:51, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Reviewer needed. It appears that someone modified the article to address the hook sourcing issue weeks ago, but didn't post here that it had been done. It turns out that the Romanian Television source also covers the mosque nickname, so I've added it to the appropriate point in the lede. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:16, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol voting keep.svg While the ref for the hook said - in my translation from Romanian) - that the mosque was built in reinforced concrete and that this was innovative, it didn't as far as I could see directly point out that it was the first time in Romania this was used. I addded the Romanian Television ref. which in my translation says that it was the first time in Romania. I wonder a bit about the "Konya Mosque"; Konya is a city and also a province in Turkey; and I can't through Wikipedia or Google find any mosques that are simply called the Konya Mosque; I suspect the mosque actually has a more specific name; but the name "Konya mosque" is used in the Romanian source, so I added that as reference. Overall, the article looks fine and I think it can be approved, having used Google translation for verifying some facts as I don't read Romanian. Iselilja (talk) 09:48, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
