  • Symbol question.svg There's a whole section about the hook fact, with several references. Easily passes the referencing criteria. GA pass was yesterday (my time), so new enough. No need to worry about length. Issue with the image though: if we don't know who the photographer is, and there's no indication what his or her employ was, how can this be Crown Copyright expired?  — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:06, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you for the review. I changed to another picture, similar type of license, and specifically saying it was taken by a "Royal Navy official photographer". Oceanh (talk) 16:25, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I'd crop that; doesn't show up well at 100px. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:27, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Agree. I am not familiar with how to crop images (and have also only mobile access this weekend), maybe someone would like to help making a cropped version? Oceanh (talk) 11:35, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I've cropped. Acceptable? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 11:52, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Ok, thank you! (My mobile phone display is not the best to judge from, but I guess it is better). Oceanh (talk) 12:17, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Symbol confirmed.svg May need to purge the cash. Everything looks good now. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:17, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
