Run (Snow Patrol song)[edit]

  • ... that during the filming of the video for Snow Patrol's song "Run", people from the county of Kent called the police because of several distress flares were being used during that night?

5x expanded by Calvin999 (talk), Tbhotch (talk). Nominated by Calvin999 (talk) and Tbhotch (talk) at 01:18, 31 March 2013 (UTC).

  • Reviewed: None yet.
  • Note The article has not been completed, and it still being expanded as it exists too much information. As suggested by Allen3 (talk · contribs) at my talk page, it was a better option to be nominated as it is now and not to wait until later. The hook I posted is a tentative hook; the information is not in the article but it can be sourced. If other hooks are created, they will be included as alternatives. Tbhotch.

  • Symbol delete vote.svg Assuming expansion began March 25, and allowing for a slightly late nomination just after midnight the end of March 30, this is far short of the required 5x expansion. The article started with 8,974 prose characters, and is currently at 20,121 prose characters, a 2.24x expansion. The article would need to be 44,870 prose characters in all, requiring another 24,749 characters. So far, 11,147 characters have been added, so more than twice what's been added in the past 16 days still needs to be added for the article to qualify. I just don't see how that can happen.

  • Sorry I didn't know this even existed. To be honest, I think this is achievable. Leona's bit hasn't actually been expanded that much yet. I've only done the Live performances.  — AARONTALK 16:19, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I knew I forgot something. As Aaron said, Lewis version is not complete, the chart performance can be expanded as well as the critical reception. Snow Patrol re-released the song in 2010, and the article doesn't have information or reception about it. It was also added to their tours, and the lead can be expanded as well. I haven't edit it because I am busy during the week, and our mistake was maybe to work in the article rather than a sandbox, so that's why the nomination is here. We expanded almost the halve in a week, it is possible to do a 5x before older nominations are approved/declined. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it!

  • Symbol delete vote.svg A week and a half has passed since the previous review, and this article has increased in size by only 400b worth of characters. I'm not convinced at all this can be done.—♦♦ AMBER(ЯʘCK) 17:41, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
  • And again, the song was rereleased in 2010 with more reviews and performances done. As I said, I am busy during the week, or what do you want me to do, to drop out the school just for an article? Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 17:48, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm going to quote BlueMoonset here, a senior DYK reviewer. In another nomination last week, when a nominator provided a response similar to yours, he said the following:
  • This is what will happen here as well.—♦♦ AMBER(ЯʘCK) 18:21, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I will get as much done tomorrow as I can. I'm back at uni now.  — AARONTALK 22:17, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Aaron, I'm sorry, but time is up. Tbhotch has had three full weekends to expand this article since it was nominated, and under 1000 prose characters have been added in that time, none of it this weekend or last. Another 25 times that number has been needed and was not supplied. BlueMoonset (talk) 05:11, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
