  • Symbol question.svg Comment Looks good except that "In 1952, the club was reorganized and restarted, and population numbers began to climb" doesn't seem to be supported by the reference. This article was started in 2011. Is this a 5-fold expansion?[1] Star767 (talk) 01:29, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the review. I'm not sure what 2011 has to do with anything? I am nominating it under a 5x expansion. In the course of my work over the past few days, it's gone from 321 to 4656 bytes of straight size and the prose has gone from 57 B (11 words) to 3105 B (523 words). Which part of the sentence are you questioning? The source says "By 1951...the Lilac had lost most of its breeders; only 6 were shown at the National. In 1952, a few breeders reorganized the Lilac Club... The 1973 National Convention in Detroit, Michigan had 31 Lilacs entered, which made it the largest shown by 8 exhibitors." I hope this answers your questions. Dana boomer (talk) 13:13, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svgOK, sorry! (Wasn't sure how to calculate that, so thanks.) The hook is catchy and supported in the article. Article length and age are fine, no copyvio or plagiarism concerns, reliable sources are used. GTG! Star767 (talk) 15:10, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Awesome, thanks! To the person promoting this, as I said above, please save for Easter (we're working on putting together some Easter sets, including rabbits and chocolate and tradition and all that fun stuff!). Dana boomer (talk) 15:35, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
