Fish River (Alaska)[edit]

5x expanded by Rosiestep (talk), Nvvchar (talk), Dr. Blofeld (talk). Nominated by Rosiestep (talk) at 04:27, 28 March 2013 (UTC).

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Length and age check out. Hook is interesting enough. Source checks out. --Errant (chat!) 00:51, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote.svg Most of the expansion was material from PD sources - excluding PD material leaves the article well short of a 5x expansion. Nikkimaria (talk) 12:39, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
    •  :S is that a rule? Sorry I wasn't aware of that! --Errant (chat!) 11:20, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
      • Sorry about that, but yes. According to rule 2-b, text directly copied from PD sources (although this is allowed on Wikipedia) are not counted when calculating article length for DYK purposes, because it's not technically "new and original content". Chamal TC 14:08, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I have rectified by paraphrasing the PD sources. I have also added more text from other sources. Please see.--Nvvchar. 02:34, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Better, but there's still enough close paraphrasing of PD material to leave it short of 5x expansion. Nikkimaria (talk) 00:05, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Symbol redirect vote4.png Putting this sign here, because work seems to have been done on the article. —♦♦ AMBER(ЯʘCK) 18:42, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol voting keep.svg Original reviewer seems unwilling to get back here. Well, I can't check all the PD sources from my location, but seeing as lots of reconstruction has taken place I think it's safe to assume this one meets all the requirements now. —♦♦ AMBER(ЯʘCK) 08:21, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg I'll reiterate the call to Nikkimaria: 24 hours after such a talk-page notice before invoking "unwilling" seems awfully short to me. I'm also very wary of "I think it's safe to assume this one meets all the requirements now", since other people's like assumptions on close paraphrasing have proven problematic in the past.

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Sorry, thought I'd responded earlier. It's just barely over the line now. Nikkimaria (talk) 16:25, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
