Liu Hui (politician)[edit]

  • ... that Liu Hui, a Hui, is one of the few women among China's high-ranking officials?

Created by Zanhe (talk). Self nominated at 16:52, 9 May 2013 (UTC).

  • Created new on 9 May
  • Hook is appropriate length and style.
  • Facts verified in cited sources, & present in lead.
  • Article is long enough and uses encyclopedic tone (though I wish there were more information available!)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Good to go.

  • Symbol question.svg Article is currently short of 1500-character minimum. Nikkimaria (talk) 14:25, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Hmm. Interestingly my browser counted 1502 characters. Anyways, I just added several sentences (a few hundred characters) more. Now it's comfortably above the minimum. -Zanhe (talk) 12:24, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg Whats so interesting about it to feature as a hook? The hook itself says that there are other women too. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 05:15, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Does she have to be the only woman to be interesting? And besides being a woman, she's also a Hui, another rarity among Chinese leaders. -Zanhe (talk) 06:16, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Of course the hook has to showcase something interesting. That's the basic criteria before new/5x/1500 characters and all that. If there are many other women and many other Huis, our subject doesn't showcase anything interesting. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 06:35, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Please read the hook again. I'm not saying she's interesting just because she's a woman or Hui, but because she's one of the few women leaders of China, who also happens to be a Hui (a Muslim minority). AFAIK, she's the only female Hui leader in China or the world (although I can't find a source that explicitly says that). How is that combination not interesting? -Zanhe (talk) 06:44, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Besides, this hook was already reviewed and passed before. It was only pulled from the queue because it was maybe a few characters short of 1500, which has now been fixed. -Zanhe (talk) 06:50, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Okay! If you think she is the only Hui-woman-politician then thats interesting. And even without a proper ref to that particular combination i can pass it as this is good enough clue. Anyways... reinstating the original tick. Prose is now quite more than 1500. (Note that once passed and pulled out is no reason to stop it from being pulled out again.) §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 07:52, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your review. -Zanhe (talk) 08:10, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
