This reviewer concurs with second review suggestions. Alt image is fine with me. Montanabw(talk) 18:56, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your review. Anne (talk) 19:19, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Second review completed

Comment: Gone for four months and the double reviews still continue. Anne (talk) 23:39, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol confirmed.svg The article meets all the DYK criteria of newness, length, neutrality etc. The hook is referenced and the image licensed, though in my view, the image is less interesting than the photo of the model of the battery used elsewhere in the article.

  • Thanks for your review. I also thought about the model pic... Now added Alt1 with the alternative photo. --Gibmetal 77talk 2 me 12:09, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your review. Anne (talk) 19:19, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Anne, great to see you back! BlueMoonset (talk) 06:00, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Thank you. In celebration of Downton Abbey (which my family just discovered this winter) and British aristocracy, I've been writing a bit the last few days on the Haggard family, including Godfrey and Vernon. Anne (talk) 15:39, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg These reviews are not quite complete. As it notes in the reviewing instructions at the top of this template, at least one reviewer must explicitly check for any conflict of interest or promotional concerns, and report on these in the review, and neither reviewer has done so. It shouldn't be difficult to complete that task, and I look forward to the review being completed. It isn't yet, however. BlueMoonset (talk) 06:00, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
I used the term "neutrality" in my review. This was supposed to encompass any conflict of interest or promotional content and I believe these are not present. Having said that, I looked at the article again, and have removed some duplication from the part about the leisure centre. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:50, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
I don't believe that "neutrality" is sufficiently specific given the restrictions: it should be mentioned that these particular aspects have been checked and are not an issue. If you think that after the duplications were removed the article is no longer promotional, a new tick would be in order to finish off the review. Thanks.

Symbol confirmed.svg I am accepting that all standard DYK compliance has been checked during the two reviews already completed; I have diligently gone through this article as someone totally uninvolved in the Gibralter DYK concerns of the past. I can detect no specific promotional nor COI problems in this article. (I hope it's okay for me to step in here and offer a third 'neutral' opinion on this?).
