Rebeca Cofré[edit]

Cofré in 2010.

Created by Küñall (talk). Self nominated at 01:29, 4 December 2013 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg Two extra days is acceptable, but why haven't you edited the article since you nominated it for DYK? A QPQ has not yet been done.
  • I have some questions about the content:
  • The article is long enough and well-referenced with Spanish-only sources. But I'm wondering why you're printing the original, Spanish-language text in the notes and references. As this is an English Wikipedia, it would be more appropriate to translate these quotes into English so we could understand what it says.
  • The article doesn't say much about her political career other than her election results (I removed some platitudes from the government website). Could you describe or list her accomplishments over the last 5 years in office?
  • The hook isn't so interesting – many politicians lose one election and win the next. Could you come up with another hook?
  • Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 23:00, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi there, thank you for reviewing this nomination! I did edit it afterwards :-). Regarding the Spanish-language quotes, it's been kind of my 'regular procedure' since Agustin Ross Cultural Center became my second (?) GA, and the reviewer suggested me to do that. Another translation is not needed because the quoted text is in English in the article text, and then cited in Spanish. It could be a bit difficult to add more information on Cofré, given that most info is in print, and there's little access to it online, but if I find something worthy, I'll surely add it to the article. Perhaps another hook could be:
  • I'm sorry, I don't see the same extensive Spanish quoting in the references on Centro Cultural Agustín Ross, and IMO it doesn't belong in this article. And per Rule D7, Articles that fail to deal adequately with the topic are also likely to be rejected. This article devotes several paragraphs to her election results and says one thing – that the city council had to meet somewhere else due to earthquake damage – about her 5 years in office. Has she done anything for the city? Has she made any major decisions? Is she controversial? This nomination can wait until you find more material. You could find newspaper references on Google Scholar. Yoninah (talk) 15:01, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I had almost forgotten about the nomination. Thanks User:BlueMoonset for reminding me. I have added some content about her work as a mayor, from a local newspaper. Regards, Küñall (talk) 18:11, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol voting keep.svg Thank you, it looks much better. Article is new enough, long enough, well-referenced. Hook fact cited inline and foreign-language hook AGF. QPQ done. Image is public domain. ALT1 good to go. Yoninah (talk) 16:57, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Please help me here: I can't confirm the part about an NGO. Is Mujeres Empresarias an NGO, please? --PFHLai (talk) 04:00, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Will add a ref for that later today(sorry for rollbacking your previous edit, I'm on the phone) Küñall (talk) 04:43, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

  • I have added a note describing what Mujeres Empresarias is, according to their website. An NGO might not be the most accurate description, but it is the best that I can think of. Küñall (talk) 03:49, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Why not just shorten the hook?
  • ALT2: ... that in 2013 mayor of Chépica Rebeca Cofré (pictured) was named one of the 100 Leading Women of Chile by El Mercurio newspaper? Yoninah (talk) 10:12, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Symbol voting keep.svg Sure. Simple. That works! Blue tick based on earlier review above. Thanks. --PFHLai (talk) 12:05, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
