Ghetto Baby[edit]

Created by Sauloviegas (talk). Nominated by Calvin999 (talk) at 13:57, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg The fivefold expansion appears to have happened from December 25, and a nomination for January 1 is more than five days away. So this doesn't appear to fulfill the newness requirement, unless you are invoking some exception. I'm not sure either if the inline citation directly supports the hook; the 1 May MTV source calls the song a "collaboration" with her, although Idolater says that the song is "penned by a certain notorious Saturday Night Live performer", which is probably a reference to Rey, but it could be clearer.

  • The DYK Check said that it had been expanded 5 times. Either way, Rey still co-wrote the song. Think I misinterpreted the DYK Check. AARONTALK 22:58, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
  • It looks like the problem here is a late nomination: with the expansion beginning on December 25, the submission should have been within five days of that, no later than December 30, but was made two days later on January 1. (DYKcheck, for reasons that escape me, reports based on ten days, but it's five.) The article is easily 5x expanded as of its most recent edit, which was on December 28. (I've pulled Till's name from the nomination, since creation of a redirect is not worthy of credit for DYK; Sauloviegas is the sole expander here (other folks just moved stuff around.)

  • Symbol redirect vote4.png As the contributor only has a single DYK credit, I think seven days is acceptable per DYKSG D9 (once known as the Swahili Rule). S/he could be told a bit more about DYK, because her/his other article was also not a self nom. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 22:39, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
  • What? AARONTALK 22:46, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Sauloviegas only has one DYK credit thusfar, and that was not a self-nomination either. Thus, I think the age of the article is not an issue. Saulo could be told about DYK, but that's it. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 22:54, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Hey, I didn't nominate it for DYK because I found the whole nomination procedure really confusing. I was going to do it with Something New (song) also, but I got messed up while submitting and in the end I didn't even do it. - Saulo Talk to Me 16:32, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg A lot of quotes in this article. If necessary, quotes (except from lyrics) need paraphrasing, especially from Reception section. --George Ho (talk) 16:20, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm unsure why this nomination is still here. I thought because I nominated it on the 6th day that that was it? AARONTALK 16:36, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote4.png . I came here from Wikipedia talk:Did you know#Old unreviewed DYK hooks and I read the article. An avalanche of quotes from the buttered-up media is in direct contradiction to our wp:spam policy/guidelines, i.e.: "classic Lana Del Rey; a beat-heavy number woven from kisses, stilettos and sultry speak-singing..." The article might need to be rewritten from scratch (as far as I'm concerned), or flagged. Thanks, Poeticbent talk 22:54, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I find that analogy quite offensive. AARONTALK 23:10, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Aside from it not being an analogy, Poetic is quite right. Considering you're working at getting some articles to FA status I'd suggest you learn from the editor's mistakes here. We should strive to use our own words, not weave together 100 different quotes. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:18, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I don't even know why this is nom is still here. A mistake of mine, I nominated it 6 days after creation/expansion, not 5. AARONTALK 10:47, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • You know as well as I do that article nominated a little late can still be passed. Is that a withdrawal? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:55, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Well I didn't know that, no one has said. I'll work on the article. AARONTALK 12:57, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • The applicable guideline is cited above... — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:58, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote.svg Nothing has been done in over 12 days. Given that this was allowed an exception, and has the significant issues pointed out by Poeticbent, some action should have been taken before now. Closing nomination. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:31, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
