Note to Scheduling admin There are 6 alternatives here. The original multiple hook and ALT 5 both only name the nominees of an award, which is generally a type of hook that is failed as too dull. ALT1-ALT4 all refer to a non-trivial fact, that also makes the hook eligible to be the main image. This is the type of hook that would likely make the All-time page view leaderboard for reasons presented below if scheduled as a main hook in accordance with the date request. I am not demanding that this be a main hook, but just calling this to your attention since there is a lot of text to get lost in below.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 15:19, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
It has come to my attention that since the four nominees got nearly 25k hits last year without any of them being featured in hooks at DYK to my knowledge and that since main hooks get about 3 or 4 times as many view as other hooks, that if we can get the foursome as a main hook, we might have the first 100k hook. This might be a bit of a shoehorn, but feel free to make a suggestion.
ok I am confused, this was begun May 1 - are we counting it as a new or a 5x expansion from some point? It is a great idea to have all four plays in one hook. Hook is cited....article looks ok, except can we please explain why/what/how the person is "off medications" - it is a weird nonsequitur as is. FWIW my preference is for ALT5...I feel a bit uneasy about giving one undue weight given it's an awards night...but maybe I am being a bit overcautious.

These are all suppose to be new. As noted in my P.S. above, I started to do a couple of separate ones. Those were nominated at DYK in time for newness, and I want to merge them into this single nom. Maybe I should have put this on one of those pages. I am not sure. If there is no policy way to roll hooks together, then isn't there something about allowances (beyond 5 days) when hooks are in short supply as they have been in recent weeks?--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 07:11, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
In regards to ALT5, it is clearly the type of hook that is generally considered way too dull to be on the main page. Why do you prefer a hook that has no intriguing fact? I don't know about undue weight in terms of policy. Is there some policy that you can't have a picture of someone on DYK at the time they are in the news? I thought that is what we sort of hoped for. All of the most-viewed hooks of all-time had pictures on the main page when they were the most newsy.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 07:09, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Very well, if no-one sees it as a problem, then I don't really mind. I don't have a strong preference for any other ALT hook. I can see it was nominated 5 days after beginning. Whoever loads it up can choose. Cas Liber (talk·contribs) 14:18, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
