Instructions for nominators[edit]

Create a subpage for your new DYK suggestion and then list the page below under the date the article was created or the expansion began or it became a good article (not the date you submit it here), with the newest dates at the bottom. Any registered user may nominate a DYK suggestion (if you are not a registered user, please leave a message at the bottom of the DYK project talk page with the details of the article you would like to nominate and the hook you would like to propose); self-nominations are permitted and encouraged. Thanks for participating and please remember to check back for comments on your nomination (consider watchlisting your nomination page).

If this is your first nomination, please read the DYK rules before continuing:
Official DYK criteria: DYK rules and supplementary guidelines
Unofficial guide: Learning DYK

To nominate an article[edit]

Read these instructions completely before proceeding.
For simplified instructions, see User:Rjanag/Quick DYK 2.
I.
Create the nomination subpage.

Enter the article title in the box below and click the button. (To nominate multiple articles together, enter any or all of the article titles.) You will then be taken to a preloaded nomination page.


II.
Write the nomination.

On the nomination page, fill in the relevant information. See Template:NewDYKnomination and {{NewDYKnomination/guide}} for further information.

  • Not every line of the template needs to be filled in. For instance, if you are not nominating an image to appear with your hook, there is no need to fill in the image-related lines.
  • Add an edit summary e.g. "Nominating YOUR ARTICLE TITLE for DYK" and click Save page.
  • Make sure the nomination page is on your watchlist, so you can follow the review discussion.
III.

In the current nominations section find the subsection for the date on which the article was created or on which expansion began (or, if a new Good Article, the date on which it became a GA), not the date on which you make the nomination.

  • At the top of that subsection (before other nominations already there, but below the section head and hidden comment) add {{Did you know nominations/YOUR ARTICLE TITLE}}.
  • Add an edit summary e.g. "Nominating YOUR ARTICLE TITLE for DYK" and click Save page.

How to review a nomination[edit]

Any editor who was not involved in writing/expanding or nominating an article may review it by checking to see that the article meets all the DYK criteria (long enough, new enough, no serious editorial or content issues) and the hook is cited. Editors may also alter the suggested hook to improve it, suggest new hooks, or even lend a hand and make edits to the article to which the hook applies so that the hook is supported and accurate. For a more detailed discussion of the DYK rules and review process see the supplementary guidelines and the WP:Did you know/Reviewing guide.

To post a comment or review on a DYK nomination, follow the steps outlined below:

  • Look through this page, Template talk:Did you know, to find a nomination you would like to comment on.
  • Click the "Review or comment" link at the top of the nomination. You will be taken to the nomination subpage.
  • The top of the page includes a list of the DYK criteria. Check the article to ensure it meets all the relevant criteria.
  • To indicate the result of the review (i.e., whether the nomination passes, fails, or needs some minor changes), leave a signed comment on the page. Please begin with one of the 5 review symbols that appear at the top of the edit screen, and then indicate all aspects of the article that you have reviewed; your comment should look something like the following:

    Article length and age are fine, no copyvio or plagiarism concerns, reliable sources are used. But the hook needs to be shortened.

    If you are the first person to comment on the nomination, there will be a line :* <!-- REPLACE THIS LINE TO WRITE FIRST COMMENT, KEEPING  :* --> showing you where you should put the comment.
  • Save the page.

If there is any problem or concern about a nomination, please consider notifying the nominator by placing {{subst:DYKproblem|Article|header=yes|sig=yes}} on the nominator's talk page.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

Backlogged?[edit]

This page is often backlogged. As long as your submission is still on the page, it will stay there until an editor reviews it. Since editors are encouraged to review the oldest submissions first (so that those hooks don't grow stale), it may take several weeks until your submission is reviewed. In the meantime, please consider reviewing another submission (not your own) to help reduce the backlog (see instructions above).

Where is my hook?[edit]

If you can't find the nomination you submitted to this nominations page, it may have been approved and is on the approved nominations page waiting to be promoted. It could also have been added to one of the prep areas, promoted from prep to a queue, or is on the main page.

If the nominated hook is in none of those places, then the nomination has probably been rejected. Such a rejection usually only occurs if it was at least a couple of weeks old and had unresolved issues for which any discussion had gone stale. If you think your nomination was unfairly rejected, you can query this on the DYK discussion page, but as a general rule such nominations will only be restored in exceptional circumstances.

Instructions for other editors[edit]

How to promote an accepted hook[edit]

  • See Wikipedia:Did you know/Preparation areas for full instructions.
  • Hooks that have been approved are located on the approved nominations page.
  • In one window, open the DYK nomination subpage of the hook you would like to promote.
  • In another window, open the prep set you intend to add the hook to.
  • In the prep set...
    • Paste the hook into the hook area (be sure to not paste in that that)
    • Paste the credit information ({{DYKmake}} and/or {{DYKnom}}) into the credits area.
    • Add an edit summary, e.g. "Promoted [[Jane Fonda]]", preview, and save
  • Back on DYK nomination page...
    • change {{DYKsubpage to {{subst:DYKsubpage
    • change |passed= to |passed=yes
    • Add an edit summary, e.g. "Promoted to Prep 3", preview, and save

How to remove a rejected hook[edit]

  • Open the DYK nomination subpage of the hook you would like to remove. (It's best to wait several days after a reviewer has rejected the hook, just in case someone contests or the article undergoes a large change.)
  • In the window where the DYK nomination subpage is open, replace the line {{DYKsubpage with {{subst:DYKsubpage, and replace |passed= with |passed=no. Then save the page. This has the effect of wrapping up the discussion on the DYK nomination subpage in a blue archive box and stating that the nomination was unsuccessful, as well as adding the nomination to a category for archival purposes.

How to remove a hook from the prep areas or queue[edit]

  • Edit the prep area or queue where the hook is and remove the hook and the credits associated with it.
  • Go to the hook's nomination subpage (there should have been a link to it in the credits section).
    • View the edit history for that page
    • Go back to the last version before the edit where the hook was promoted, and revert to that version to make the nomination active again.
    • Add a new icon on the nomination subpage to cancel the previous tick and leave a comment after it explaining that the hook was removed from the prep area or queue, and why, so that later reviewers are aware of this issue.
  • Add a transclusion of the template back to this page so that reviewers can see it. It goes under the date that it was first created/expanded/listed as a GA. You may need to add back the day header for that date if it had been removed from this page.
  • If you removed the hook from a queue, it is best to either replace it with another hook from one of the prep areas, or to leave a message at WT:DYK asking someone else to do so.

How to move a nomination subpage to a new name[edit]

  • Don't; it should not ever be necessary, and will break some links which will later need to be repaired. Even if you change the title of the article, you don't need to move the nomination page.

Articles created/expanded on February 17[edit]

Koo (social network)

  • ... that the Koo App shot to prominence after Twitter got into a weeks-long standoff with the government of India? Source:Japan Times article
    • ALT1:... that ...? Source: "You are strongly encouraged to quote the source text supporting each hook" (and [link] the source, or cite it briefly without using citation templates)

Created by Aman.kumar.goel (talk). Self-nominated at 11:00, 17 February 2021 (UTC).

Collapsing prior review from Bahnfrend. DanCherek (talk) 22:36, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

  • Adequate sourcing: Red XN - I checked only three of the sources, and two of them didn't support the relevant assertion. So, eg, where did the assertion that the messages are known as "Koos" come from? Similarly, where was the list of intended further languages sourced?
  • Neutral: Green tickY
  • Free of copyright violations, plagiarism, and close paraphrasing: Red XN - Can't tell yet, as the sources for some of the content are unclear.
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation

QPQ: Red XN - Not done
Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg I've added a link and made a minor amendment to the hook. Bahnfrend (talk) 12:22, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

@Bahnfrend: I have addressed above issues with my recent edit. I don't think QPQ is needed because I have less than 5 nominations. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 11:23, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg It has been more than two weeks, and reviewer Bahnfrend has not returned; new reviewer needed to check the issues previously raised and see whether they have been addressed so the DYK criteria are met. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:08, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
New review by DanCherek
General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

  • Adequate sourcing: Red XN - need sources for "first launched in Kannada", "Hindi", and all of the future languages. The Japan Times source says that Koo installs increased by 901,000, not that there were 901,000 installs
  • Neutral: Green tickY
  • Free of copyright violations, plagiarism, and close paraphrasing: Red XN - it would be great if the first two sentences of paragraph 3 (about Koo vs Twitter) could be reworded a little to make it more different from the source
  • Other problems: Red XN - there are concerns on the talk page about the article's title, and whether it should be moved to Koo (app) or Koo (social network), these should be addressed (whether or not the page is ultimately moved) prior to approval. (FWIW, I think I agree that it should be moved since the name of the app is just "Koo")
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
QPQ: None required.

Overall: Symbol question.svg @Aman.kumar.goel: Thanks for your patience with this nomination, sorry for the delay. See comments above, there are a few remaining things that I think should be resolved before approval. Let me know if you have any questions. DanCherek (talk) 22:36, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

@DanCherek: Fixed these issues except the last one. The concern over the title might be outdated because it was 2 months ago and this microblogging service is referred to as "Koo App" in the sources that we have used. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 12:01, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
@Aman.kumar.goel: While the headlines say "Koo App", the prose in all of the sources call it "Koo", "the Koo platform", "the Koo app", etc., with no capitalization in "app". Reference [7] says: It is named just “Koo” on the App Store with Bombinate Technologies Private Limited as the provider. I think it's similar to how we have articles titled Twitter and Snapchat rather than "Twitter App" and "Snapchat App". Also, "first launched in Kannada", "Hindi", and all of the future languages should be sourced — I'm being annoying about this because if the unsourced material is removed it starts to approach the 1,500-character minimum DYK threshold. Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or if you want me to open it up for more opinions from WT:DYK. DanCherek (talk) 20:14, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi Aman.kumar.goel; are you going to return to make the changes that the reviewer asked you about? It's been nearly a month now. If we don't hear from you in the next few days, this nomination will have to be closed. MeegsC (talk) 21:04, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5 and MeegsC: I have resolved all issues now. Let me know if any problems exist. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 05:20, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
DanCherek, how is it looking now? Do you approve it, or are there still issues? MeegsC (talk) 08:11, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Symbol possible vote.svg Sigh... it's undergoing a big expansion by another user which is great for the article but always complicates things here. @Aman.kumar.goel: With the new content added by Badassboy 63637, there are now sections that need further copy-editing (e.g. capitalization issues, external links removal) and sources needed (e.g. "Most Followed Accounts" is unsourced). I also note the three editors on the talk page who are in support of a title change. DanCherek (talk) 12:31, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

@Aman.kumar.goel: Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 06:07, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Article has been moved to Koo (social network); I have adjusted this page to reflect the move except for the hook, which I'm not sure how to adjust beyond the link to the article. BlueMoonset (talk) 14:57, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
Does this need a GOCE copyedit? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 05:46, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
The prose is generally fine and GOCE is probably not necessary; DYK-compliant sourcing is the only thing preventing this from being approved right now. DanCherek (talk) 14:13, 30 May 2021 (UTC)
After all the recent edits to the article, I don't see any serious issue with the article right now. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 10:56, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
There are two paragraphs in the article that are unsourced (in "Format, interface and features" and "Most followed accounts"); they need to be sourced per WP:DYKSG. DanCherek (talk) 22:07, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
@Aman.kumar.goel: Could you source the remaining unsourced paragraphs? Thanks. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 05:27, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: I have. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 07:31, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
Pinging DanCherek to see whether the latest changes solve the sourcing issues. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 02:21, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Thanks for the ping! All paragraphs sourced now so approving. DanCherek (talk) 02:26, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg The article refers to the app as Koo, Koo App, and Koo app. Which one is it? The hook doesn't sound that great with "got into a". Maybe ALT1 ... that the social network Koo became prominent after a weeks-long standoff between Twitter and the Government of India? SL93 (talk) 05:21, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
ALT1 looks fine to me. Thanks. DanCherek (talk) 14:37, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Unreferenced contact was just added to the article. SL93 (talk) 06:05, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Already removed by other editor. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 14:34, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Aman.kumar.goel Can you make the article consistent with what the subject is? SL93 (talk) 16:56, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote.svg Some sections read like an advert, others like a howto. Desertarun (talk) 21:23, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
Symbol possible vote.svg I don't think those issues necessarily make this nomination ineligible, rather it merely means that additional work is needed to bring the article up to standard. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 04:04, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Articles created/expanded on March 27[edit]

The Great Seljuks: Guardians of Justice

Improved to Good Article status by Limorina (talk). Self-nominated at 08:25, 27 March 2021 (UTC). Review comments to Chidgk1 please as Limorina has now retired from Wikipedia according to their user page

  • No, you have to link and bold the article in each hook. Also, neither of these hooks are particularly interesting or unusual. It isn't strange for a government official to visit a major production and actors probably celebrate birthdays on set all the time. (t · c) buidhe 14:26, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
  • I think there's some potential in ALT3 but right now it needs to have some grammatical fixes. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 04:34, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
  • The Turkish word "plato" does mean "plateau" in geography but here it means "set". I submit the following - but fear it will be assassinated due to exclamation marks! Chidgk1 (talk) 18:03, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Comment Perhaps "plato" could be translated as backlot? Chidgk1 11:23, May 12, 2021
  • @Limorina: and/or @Buidhe: - hope you are well - let me know if you would like me to continue with this Chidgk1 (talk) 18:34, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
  • I think that ALT4 is an in-universe hook, which is not allowed by our rules. (t · c) buidhe 18:40, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Comment. I agree that the hooks are not very interesting. Might I suggest that the name of the film be given in English, and I suggest a plot based hook. How about;
Alt 5 ... that the 2020 Turkish historical drama The Great Seljuks: Guardians of Justice tells the story of Malik-Shah I's struggle against Hassan-i Sabbah, leader of the Order of Assassins?4meter4 (talk) 20:24, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
@Limorina: and/or @Buidhe: - hope you are well - Alt 5 looks good to me - can we go with that? Chidgk1 (talk) 19:38, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
  • I like Alt 5. Just saying. --evrik (talk) 22:27, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg As it seems the issues with the nomination have been resolved. I am relisting this for review. --evrik (talk) 22:35, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
  • If this is being DYK nominated on the basis of passing GA, I would like to see a GAR before it goes anywhere (first order: move to official English title). If it was also 5x expanded within timeframe, switch the nom to that and we can proceed. Alt 5 is PLOT, more hook suggestions needed, though fixing the English of some of the original hook proposals could work. Kingsif (talk) 23:21, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
Perhaps a reworded version of ALT3? ALT3a ... that the production of the film Uyanış: Büyük Selçuklu employed 350 décor employees, 100 carpenters and a team of 60 people? It's not a great hook but it seems to be the best option among the ones proposed so far, unless someone could think up of a better hook fact. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 05:03, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
We'd have to find out what a "décor employee" is, and what that extra 60 person "team" is doing, before approving that. I was thinking of the birthday one - assuming this is recent, why would a whole family be invited to a COVID set for a birthday? Kingsif (talk) 05:26, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

OK guys as @Limorina:'s user page says they have retired (feel free to take it back if you wish Limorina - otherwise I hope you enjoy your retirement) as discussed on my talk page I hereby take over the role of editor responding to reviewers comments. I will respond to the above - hopefully soon - and is anyone willing to be the reviewer? Chidgk1 (talk) 12:15, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

@Kingsif: Thanks for useful suggestion - I hereby switch the nomination to 5X expanded Chidgk1 (talk) 12:28, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

@Kingsif: I don't see any problem with ALT5 - it is not really giving away the plot so I don't think it is a spoiler. I have not watched any of it yet but the mention of the assassins makes me more interested. Are you taking on the role of reviewer? If not whoever is the reviewer - are you happy with ALT5? Chidgk1 (talk) 12:49, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

It's not a spoiler, it's just only PLOT - it says "X tells the story of Y". Most works tell the story of something, so it's an empty hook. There's nothing about the real world. If you want me as reviewer, I would call this nom no hope and close it as a "no"; it wasn't 5x expanded in the 7 days before nom and the GA status is dubious at best, so I don't think it even qualifies, but even then the article isn't good and the hooks are nonsense or empty. Kingsif (talk) 12:58, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
Oh sorry I misread your comment about 5X and did not see the "If". I won't be offended if you or anyone else wants to do a GAR - if it does not take too much time I will attempt to defend it as GA - but will abandon if too much work. Meanwhile I hereby switch back to "good article" as the basis. I don't mind who reviews so long as it is clear who that is. Chidgk1 (talk) 13:08, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
To be on the safe side it probably does need a GAR. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 03:15, 20 May 2021 (UTC)

As I am representing the author I cannot be a reviewer - thanks for all your helpful edits and comments - would anyone like to officially be the reviewer? Chidgk1 (talk) 07:17, 22 May 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Ooh, a nice quadruple hook here! Each article looks good for the main page, were made on May 1 or 2, and are at least 1500 characters; for some odd reason I'm being told that Marie-Adolphine is a stub by DYKcheck, not sure why. QPQ is all good and hook is a catcher. See you at WP:DYKSTATS! Also did they all go by "Mary"? 7 Mary's sounds like an Abbot and Costello skit hah! - Floydian τ ¢ 15:53, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Symbol possible vote.svg There is some significant overlap in text among these articles. Since the overlapping text can only be used towards the character count of one article, this drops the other three below the 1500 word threshold for DYK. They'll need to be expanded a bit to qualify, so I'm putting this nom on hold until the issue has been resolved. MeegsC (talk) 09:22, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

@MeegsC: They now pass a 2000 char limit and I have paraphrased the areas of duplication. Victuallers (talk) 12:57, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
Pinging also Nikkimaria, who is an experienced judge of just this kind of overlap. BlueMoonset (talk) 21:48, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
Keep in mind that minor rephrasing doesn't make the content new - it still doesn't qualify towards the count, so we're still short here. In addition to the interarticle duplication, I'm concerned that other articles have been closely paraphrased without sufficient attribution, eg Boxer Rebellion. Are there others? Nikkimaria (talk) 00:01, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
I can't say that I agree, but nevertheless I have recast the hook to contain only one article, as adding another 500 chars to each may still be disputed. Can this be assessed please. @MeegsC:@BlueMoonset:@Nikkimaria: Thanks Victuallers (talk) 09:33, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
I'll defer to Nikkimaria's expertise, as this was the first multiple nom I've dealt with when promoting sets. I'm learning more every day! MeegsC (talk) 13:11, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Moving down to one article sidesteps the duplication issue, but I would still like a response on the issue of copying from other articles - this needs to be properly attributed. Nikkimaria (talk) 13:54, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
That's correct Nikkimaria, but it is not relevant to this approval, and I'm quite willing to address the issue, without sidestepping, but not while the nomination is held to ransom. I hope you can see that this is reasonable if not your preferred route. This particular article had 1580 characters on the 4th May before I nominated it and I don't believe there is any duplication in this article that needs to be addressed. If you can identify some then I'd be pleased to remove it. Victuallers (talk) 15:32, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Articles created/expanded on May 2[edit]

Norman K. Risjord

  • ... that historian Norman K. Risjord worked in counter-intelligence in Berlin before he obtained his Phd and pursued a career in American history?  Sources: • Norman K. Risjord: University of Wisconsin, biography;   • Memorials: Norman Risjord, Omohundro Institute

Created by Gwillhickers (talk). Self-nominated at 18:42, 5 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg I am willing to review it, but first, the subject's notability is not clear. Could you elaborate here or on the article's talk how they meet WP:NPROF/WP:NBIO and ping me? The current sources for the article are low-key obituaries from his Department and funeral home, hardly independent (one presumably written by his colleagues at work, the other by his family and friends). I'll continue the review once the notability is made clear. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:37, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
@Piotrus: -- Risjord is noted in the academic and historical community for having authored more than twenty books on American history. That he worked for US intelligence before pursuing a career in history also makes him interesting, imo. The article is for reference, as Risjord's name occurs from time to time in other works of history. I wouldn't go so far as to say he's famous, but he is noted among historians and the like. -- Gwillhickers (talk) 23:01, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
[Add] Risjord's studies and writings about the birth and development of US political party system that emerged after the American Revolution were published in six separate volumes, and are considered standard works on the development of the early American party system. There is no other historian who has written in this important area of study nearly as much as Risjord has. -- Gwillhickers (talk) 20:38, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Gwillhickers, Hmmm, I am still seeing those assertions as made by a Wikipedian but not backed up reliable sources. I will ping User:Randykitty here for a quick sanity check. What do you think, Randy? AfD or am I missing something? If you think it is notable I'll be happy to finish reviewing this. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:55, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
@Piotrus and Randykitty: Thanks. We should keep in mind that 'notability' is usually based on one's accomplishments and that any notability is usually limited to those interested in the subject. For example, an article on a given video game is only notable in the eyes of video-gamers. Risjord is noted in the American history historical world for his many Works|works on history, esp where it concerns the US party system that emerged after the American Revolution - a very important component of American history, often ignored. Like other accomplished writers this is Risjord's claim to notability. Hope his many scholarly accomplishments will be notable enough. Risjord is often referenced by other writers so if need be I can add these items to the narrative. I'll continue looking for other sources. -- Gwillhickers (talk) 17:28, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Actually, that is not correct. Notability is not based on accomplishments, but on being "noted" as evidenced by in-depth discussion in reliable sources independent of the subject. I see here only 2 independent sources: the Hickey book and an article from the same author. I checked the book and there a only a handful in-passing mentions, nothing coming close to the coverage needed for notability. The article is even worse, mentioning Risjord just once in a list of sources. If Risjord was indeed as valued as you claiam, then there should be sources certifying that. If this is all (Goodreads, seriously?), then this is not only unsuited for DYK but ripe for AfD. Sorry for being so harsh, I understand and appreciate the time and effort that you have invested in this... --Randykitty (talk) 18:58, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for being candid. Yes, we need more than one independent source that indeed says Risjord is a noted scholar in his field. Hickey maintains Risjord's works on the US party system are the standard reference on this subject. I only meant to say that accomplishments come first, and then, maybe, notability follows. Apparently it hasn't in this case, even though Risjord's name appears in the Bibliographies of many books on the history of the US government in the early days. As I said, I will look to other scholarly accounts which mention Risjord's distinguished accomplishments in the study of early US history. -- If I come up with any such independent sources I'll ping you and we can go from there. Otherwise, I'll just withdraw the nomination and hope the AfD axe doesn't come down on the article. -- Gwillhickers (talk) 20:00, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
Gwillhickers, I really dislike being a party-pooper or the resident "deletionist", particularly as I believe we are suffering from systemic bias against academics (or pro-celeberities). Nonetheless, I think there is no middle ground. If he is notable, this is eligible for DYK. If he is not, this is not eligible for an article (and your effort can be at best userfied, waiting for a day sources about him appear - it is possible, some scholars are written about by their peers and students and such, but it can takes years or decades). For the record, I do believe we should have articles about such people who should be notable, but it is not up to us to say they are - his peers and colleagues and so on need to go through the effort of writing at least one (and preferably three articles about him). That is the requirement for one to have an entry in an encyclopedia. Until such sources exist, he may not be notable. (That said, see also supplementary notes at WP:PROF, maybe he can squeeze by one of the other criteria; not that long ago I AfD an Asian vice rector of a minor university with no citations / research who got kept per consensus that vice rectors of all Commonwealth countries are automatically notable due to meeting some aspect of PROF...). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:55, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
Asking for three complete articles on writers it would seem is a bit much, considering that the guideline referred to only says Significant coverage is more than a trivial mention, but it does not need to be the main topic of the source material. Also, I am more concerned with 'what' an independent source says, rather than how many sentences or paragraphs, so I'm hoping we don't use a 'word count' of sorts to measure the weight a source may lend to Risjord. Having authored dozens of books, Risjord's area of expertise is distinguished and some of his works are considered the standard authority, so there's a likely chance there are others besides Hickey who definitively say so. I'll continue to search through the other sources. Risjord's names occurs in many works on American history, and in particular, Thomas Jefferson and post Revolutionary War developments, so there's still hope here that there's some ample coverage about the person himself. Will be prompt about the search. -- Gwillhickers (talk) 19:05, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
  • I suggest you start looking for reviews of his books, those might be more substantial than those Hickey sources (which in one case are just a citation and in the other not even a complete sentence). In the field of history, books are the way to publish and many journals will publish reviews of books in their field of interest. If no reviews of his books can be found, then I'd say that more or less proves non-notability (insofar as a negative can be proven, of course). --Randykitty (talk) 22:11, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Gwillhickers, FYI, one article would make me not bother with AfD. Or even a detailed paragraph. Heck, a sentence calling him or his work significant would be of use too. Believe it or not, I do have (what I consider) relaxed standards when it comes to academics, it is just that they are still not met here - we are missing even one, independent, in-depth source about him. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:23, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
I've come across these book reviews of Risjord's work so far. In terms of recognition and praise given to Risjord, these reviews don't come right out and say that Risjord's works are a standard authority, but they do support the idea that Risjord is a well recognized, accomplished and insightful writer in his field.

    Book: Chesapeake Politics, 1781-1800, by Norman K. Risjord (1978)  ISBN 9780231043281
Cox —– "Risjord's Chesapeake Politics will be the classic work on the early politics of Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina for years to come, and all new work will be compared to it.[1]

    Book: Builders of Annapolis: Enterprise and Politics in a Colonial Capital, By Norman K. Risjord. (1997) ISBN 0-938420-60-7
Breslaw —– "This is good popular history. The author chronicles the development of Annapolis in the eighteenth century through the lives of nine families who contributed to the architectural and institutional development of the town. Risjord, now retired from the history department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, is best known for his description of Chesapeake Politics, 1781-1800 (New York, 1978) and a series of biographical sketches of Representative Americans.[a] Drawing on an array of secondary sources, he brings to this portrait of elite Annapolis colonials a wealth of human interest stories and insightful observations."[2]
  • Review: By Harry Hellenbrand, University of Minnesota, Duluth
    Book: Thomas Jefferson, by Norman K. Risjord (1994)  ISBN 9780945612391
Hellenbrand —– "Norman K. Risjord's brief biography of Jefferson is the work of a seasoned professional who has devoted his scholarly career to the study of the Jeffersonian period in American history. While modestly describing his book as a brief outline of Jefferson's career for a general audience, Risjord actually presents an insightful analysis of Jefferson's character and beliefs and an incisive account of his impact on his times. Risjord is especially strong in showing how Jefferson managed to combine strong elements of classical republicanism and Lockean liberalism in his political ideology and in tracing how the balance between them constantly shifted in response to changing circumstances. Firmly in command of the sources, Risjord, in slightly more than 200 pages, leads the reader authoritatively through the main stages of development in Jefferson's career and provides a convincing assessment of his place in American history."[3]

American Pre-Raphaelites

  • ... that the American Pre-Raphaelite painters had an obsession with depicting birds' nest still lifes? Source: "It would appear more than coincidental that the emphasis upon informal stilllife elements, the accidental, humble object found in nature, precisely, meticulously rendered, began to appear in American art at just the time when the first major show of English painting was presented to the American public. Moreover, we have noted the profusion of Bird's Nest subjects in American painting after this time." [2]
    • ALT1:... that the American Pre-Raphaelites rebuked Albert Bierstadt's The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak by saying "20 times the study ... would not have justified him in attempting to fill so large a canvas"? Source: "Six years later, The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak was criticized by American pre-Raphaelites who thought that "twenty times the study that the artist has given to this picture,-study represented by actual sketches, built upon a previous ten years ... would not have justified him in attempting to fill so large a canvas" (New Path, April 1864, 161, quoted in Anderson and Ferber 1990, 194).

  • Article new enough, created on May 7, the same day it was nominated. Long enough at over 4200 characters.
  • There are major problems with the references in this article; many don't support the statements made. For example, ref1 does say that Ruskin's book struck a chord with the Transcendalists, but p. 44 says nothing about plein air painting. Ref3 doesn't mention Emerson or Norton at all, and it doesn't mention Ruskin's painting. The last phrase in the last sentence of the fourth paragraph of the History section isn't supported by any source. Ref9 has the wrong page number; the article states that Richards became a marine painter on pp. 5 and 14. I'm sure you get my point, so I'll stop here. I'm unable to verify the sources in several refs because they're inaccessible, but I wouldn't be surprised if they suffered from the same issues. At any rate, this is a concerning issue with this article.
  • The first hook is fine, but there's nothing in the article about Bierstadt's painting.
  • There are major issues with the prose, which is secondary to the problems with the utilization of sources. The paragraphs are too short, probably because not enough information from the sources are included, giving this article a problem with comprehensiveness.
  • I can't pass this article in its current state. I recommend that you remove the nomination, give up the DYK, and work on how you use sources. Symbol delete vote.svg Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 21:01, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
To your citation criticism: Ref1 was to connect Ruskin to Transcendental ideals, not plein air painting. Both the use of plein air painting and the popularity of Modern Painters are established by Ref3. Ref4 is to establish that Norton and Emerson in fact read Modern Painters. In Ref8 (I assume you meant), the relevant information is on the 12th page of the pdf—a mistake, yes, but a small one. As for the 4th graf of the history section, you'll notice that ref10 also establishes that the American Pre-Raphaelites criticized Bierstadt. The specific claim about the criticism of manifest destiny is verifiable in the Ferber 2019 source, which I have not had time to track down IRL. To me, none of this adds up to a "concerning issue" that fails to meet WP:V and can't be resolved w/ 1-2 edits. (As an aside, I wish you had phrased your criticism constructively instead of throwing your hands up.)
I do not believe the article's paragraphs are too short, and their length is not a result of "not enough information". I break paragraphs often because they help structure information for a reader. As far as I know, DYK does not have a comprehensiveness criteria, so I don't know why "a problem with comprehensiveness" is even part of the rationale for failing this nomination. At ~4200b, this article is well over the 1,500b requirement. —Wingedserif (talk) 02:17, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
Having taken a quick look at this, I'm as baffled as User:Wingedserif as to why User:Figureskatingfan has reacted this harshly. I don't see "major issues with the prose"; what issues there are are minor enough to be addressed as part of this review. The paragraphs aren't unduly short and a "problem with comprehensiveness" would be relevant at Good Article Review but is odd grounds for denying a DYK. I urge the reviewer to give the author a chance to resolve the minor problems with the article. This could be a constructive and positive process, resulting in better quality articles, if we choose it to be. MartinPoulter (talk) 14:21, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
Sorry that I came across as harsh, I was trying to help make the article better. Yes, my comments about comprehensiveness are more general than what's needed more DYK, but I think that if the nominator followed my suggestions, it would improve it. I said that I couldn't pass it for DYK based upon the issues with the references and the utilization of sources; sorry if that wasn't made clear. I also was concerned that the same issues would appear in the sources that aren't accessible, which I suspect they do. My point is that your references need to support your statements and claims. I see that your statement about plein air painting is supported by ref3, but putting ref1 after the word "ideals," makes it look like the ref is supporting the entire phrase, including the claim about plein air painting. The solution, I think, is to put ref1 at the end of the sentence. Yes, this is being picky, but it was easy for me to assume that ref1 supports both claims when it doesn't, so the simple solution is to move the ref. I think that if an article lands on the main page, it needs to be accurate. If you fix the above issues, I'll assume that you fixed the issues about the inaccessible references and sources and will pass this for DYK. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 17:09, 1 June 2021 (UTC)

I see that you've resolved the above issues, so I'm passing this for DYK. Unrelated to this DYK: I think that this article has great potential for improvement, so I suggest that you work on it some more. I also suggest that you remove the "Legacy" section and put the one sentence in another place in the article, until you add more content about the American Pre-Raphaelites' affect on American art. That way, you can remove the tag. Thanks, best to you. Symbol voting keep.svg Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 16:31, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

@Figureskatingfan: yay, thank you! (And thank you for looking through the additional edits; I do appreciate the time and care you've taken with this review.) I'm glad that adding the quotes for the supporting citations helped clarify what of the existing text is supported by each source.

You're welcome. I know that it's annoying when DYK reviewers review more than what's necessary, but for me, it's because I sincerely want articles (especially those that'll appear on the main page) become as good as they can. Sometimes we need to clarify the difference between comments made for the review and the comments made for improvement sake.

  • Symbol question.svg the hook reads a little awkward to me at the moment ("in respect to"? And I'd straight up say what the scandal was--marijuana and drug overdose?) and seems to present the reason for the switch as a concrete "fact", whereas in the article itself, the phrasing is more tentative ("for reasons not immediately disclosed", "many observers have speculated").

  • The article is long enough and new enough. It is written in an encyclopedic style with inline references. There are a few cases of bare URLs being used as references (ref 5, 8, and 23 in the current version); please express them as formatted citations. I think ref 23 should be treated carefully: this is a "newsroom alert" by a law firm, so it is written by a professional expert but it is effectively self-published. I think the text should attribute it as the analysis of one particular firm rather than stating it as fact.
The copyvio detector finds a lot of text common between the article and existing sources, especially in the sections on Commercial speech and Exceptions, where you've reproduced some of the legal code. If we are dealing with legal text that is in the public domain, then it would be okay to reuse it: I don't know if that's the case with California State law as opposed to Federal law, so I welcome clarification on this. In the lead, the phrase "speech made in connection with an issue under consideration or review by a legislative, executive, or judicial proceeding, or any other official proceeding authorized by law" seems to be verbatim from an existing source, maybe itself drawing from the legal code. It needs to be rephrased unless the legal code itself is in the public domain, in which case the source needs to be cited. You've helpfully provided web links for most of the legal documents cited, and I have to assume good faith on the rest: if you provide web links for more of the citations, that's welcome but not mandatory.
I think the original hook is a bit hard to take in with its multiple clauses referring to three different courts, but ALT1 expresses an interesting and digestable fact. This fact is expressed in the article with a suitable inline source. A QPQ seems to be not necessary in this case as the nominator has not made 5 DYK noms. You've done good work creating an accessible overview of a piece of legislation and there are just small changes needed to get this to the required standard (fix citations and clarify the copyright status, or rephrase text where necessary). Symbol question.svg MartinPoulter (talk) 14:04, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
Having looked up [4] it seems that the legal code on that site is in the public domain, so there isn't a copyright issue, but I ask you to just make sure that every time public domain text is used there is a citation to attribute it: the Commercial speech/ Exemptions sections look okay in this regard, but there is also that "speech made in connection with..." part of the lead which needs citation or rewording.

My Review:
  • New Green checkmarkY Yes – indeed was published on May 16
  • Long enough Green checkmarkY Yes – far more than the minimum of 1,500 characters
  • Within policy Red X symbolN No There are concerns here. The table under "Products" does not include inline citations for all entries. Also, some very close paraphrasing picked-up by Earwig here These need to be remedied before I can approve this nomination.
  • Format – Not sure whether it is a problem that most people might not be familiar as to what the term "unicorn" means, as it relates to finance. Might limit the only proposed hook's interest to a "broad audience".
  • QPQ – Irrelevant, as this indeed is verifiably the editor's first nomination for DYK
Conclusion: I cannot approve it at this time. There are aforementioned issues with the article that must first be remedied. I'd also suggest, perhaps, that a better hook be proposed.

As for the example above, do you think that "BigID's data intelligence platform includes such features as cataloging, correlation, cluster analysis, and classification, that assist their customers to protect, make sense of, and infer value out of the data stored in their systems" still constitutes close paraphrasing? If so, can you please suggest another paraphrasing? Thanks again. הסיסמא123 (talk) 19:59, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
Earwig doesn't check for close paraphrasing; it can only assess whether there has been word-for-word copying. Close paraphrasing is assessed by direct comparison. If paraphrasing is not possible, you can always use a direct quote. Nikkimaria (talk) 23:32, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Symbol question.svg Hi Ktin! Unless I'm mistaken, Caroling Dusk had four articles and QPQs have been used for Jarnail Singh (doctor), Wolfgang Clement, Enuga Sreenivasulu Reddy, and S. G. Neginhal. Could you therefore provide another QPQ for this one? (I know these multi-nomination reviews are challenging to keep track of!) Thanks, DanCherek (talk) 00:07, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
Profound apologies. I was busy off-wiki and totally missed this comment. Thanks to BlueMoonset for posting a message on my talk page. Thanks DanCherek.

  • ... that the deputy mayor of Jerusalem explained that the Sheikh Jarrah eviction cases are part of a municipal strategy to create “layers of Jews” throughout East Jerusalem? Source: Evictions in Jerusalem Become Focus of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, May 7, 2021: "But Mr. King, the deputy mayor, said “of course” they are part of a wider strategy of installing “layers of Jews” throughout East Jerusalem. That policy, Mr. King said, “is the way to secure the future of Jerusalem as a Jewish capital for the Jewish people.” “If we will not be in big numbers and if we will not be at the right places in strategic areas in East Jerusalem,” he added, then future peace negotiators “will try to divide Jerusalem and to give part of Jerusalem to our enemy.”"

Hook eligibility:

  • Cited: Green tickY
  • Interesting: Green tickY
  • Other problems: Red XN - The framing of King explaining what the eviction cases are doesn't seem quite right, since it implies without sourcing that that's what they really are. How about "...described the Sheikh Jarrah eviction cases as part of...", or something like that?

Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg I am concerned about the "WilliamBouguereau.org" reference (currently ref 2). The site is described as a "personal website", not affiliated with a reputable organization or museum, an author is not given, and the site seems to be a store for buying prints of the painter's work. Therefore, I do not think it is a reliable source. Reliable sources can be found at WP:LIBRARY, Google Books and Google Scholar; I suggest that the author looks in those databases, expands the article, and suggests some new hooks.

5x expanded by GC2021 (talk). Self-nominated at 07:14, 26 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol delete vote.svg Sorry, GC2021, but this isn't eligible for DYK. It needs to have been 5x expanded in the previous seven days before nominating. Beyond that, we can't use Discogs or the company website as a source for these claims. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 14:49, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol possible vote.svg Reopening after far-too-quick rejection. The nomination, by an editor new to DYK, was made on an expansion that began on May 16, when the article was 2022 prose characters, and the article is currently 9426 prose characters, only 684 prose characters short of 5x. We typically allow an IAR exception for new nominators if they're a little late (only three days in this case), and we typically allow any nominator a chance to make up the difference if they come up a little short in the expansion department, since many don't know how to count prose characters. What is more serious is that the article will need to be edited to deal with getting better sourcing and encyclopedic tone—both these issues will need to be addressed before the nomination can proceed, and the resulting article will need to be at least 10110 prose characters. Pinging Rhododendrites (given how close this was to a 5x expansion, the "X" was probably not appropriate) and Desertarun (seven days is standard to allow for issues like this to be noted before rejecting a nomination). BlueMoonset (talk) 04:25, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

  • That's the first I've heard of any IAR leniency for newbies at DYK (for allowing them to fix things, sure, but not when it comes to the deadline). In fact there have been multiple new users I was working with who nominated a day or two late and had it rejected (and in those cases, sourcing, the article, etc. weren't a problem). If allowances are made routinely IMO that's not IAR but something that should be documented so we can actually tell me users what to expect. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 13:27, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
Usually we do allow leniency for first-time nominators provided the other requirements are met or if any issues are easily surmountable. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 02:19, 1 June 2021 (UTC)
It'd be great to get that documented somewhere. Like I said, I've worked with newbies who were rejected, and it'd be good to be able to point to what's actually going to happen before going through the process of creation the nomination. That aside, I've left a message for the nominator following up on some of the issues. The deadline certainly isn't the only issue -- it's a good faith/probably-not-COI article, but extensive use of the official site (and collaborators' official sites) makes it pretty promotional. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 01:49, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
It's a relatively common occurrence, and even with veterans we usually accept a one-or-two-day delay if it's for good reason. Usually outright rejection happens when the lateness is too long (anything more than a week). It's not really a guideline, but more of a common application of IAR.

    @Narutolovehinata5: what is needed? It's not new enough (but we can make an exception); it's long enough; the hook isn't properly sourced, and there are major policy/guideline problems with the article. Additional details at User talk:GC2021, but they haven't edited since May 28. Also left a message for the professor, just to suggest they talk about independent sourcing next time around. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 04:38, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Desertarun didn't check all the requirements, which is why I was asking for a more complete review. While the nomination date can probably be excused per IAR, that doesn't touch upon the rest of the article. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 05:32, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Halston (film)

Created by Isaidnoway (talk). Self-nominated at 09:44, 17 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Without doing a full review, I can tell you that this needs a different hook proposal. The article is about a film, not about Halston the person. You have to say something about the film. Kingsif (talk) 00:23, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
    • The article is a film about Halston the person, and he talks about it in the film (archival footage). How do you create a different hook proposal? Do I need to start the nomination over again? Otherwise, my thoughts about a different hook would be ... that ALT1: ... that in the documentary film Halston, the American fashion designer tells the story about how First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's iconic pillbox hat that she wore to her husband's presidential inauguration in 1961, ended up with a dent in the top of it? Isaidnoway (talk) 09:48, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
      You simply write something preceded by ALT2 below. Making people expect a biography and than take them to a film is regarded as Easter egg, - better make clear in the wording that it's about a film about Halston. - I may help and/or review, but not right now, - I trust that you can do a hook. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:30, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
      ALT2: ... that Halston is a documentary film about the American fashion designer who designed the iconic pillbox hat that Jacqueline Kennedy wore to her husband's presidential inauguration? - I don't think she was First Lady then already, as he wasn't President yet. We could add a link to the designer if you wish. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:26, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Documentary or not, Alt1 is PLOT. Alt2 boils down to nothing more than "Halston is a documentary about Halston" which... duh? If the point is supposed to be he designed the pillbox (rather than the doc being about him) then it's still a hook about him, not the movie, and if it's about Jackie wearing that hat then it's completely unrelated. How about these?
  • ALT3: ... that the director of documentary film Halston didn't want to tell the story of its subject until he learned there was more to him than just extravagant partying? Source: [8]
  • ALT4: ... that the niece of designer Halston had over 200 tapes of archival footage of him, thought to be lost, which were used in producing the documentary film Halston? Source: ditto
  • ALT5: ... that in planning the documentary film Halston, its writer-director created a database of Halston's life events in order to rate their importance for inclusion? Source: ditto
  • ALT6: ... that documentary film Halston is framed as a film noir? Source: [9]
Or if you really want to talk about the hat, you have to relate it to the movie's production;
And, of course, it would be greatly appreciated if that detail was moved out of the footnote and into prose. Kingsif (talk) 22:22, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
No comments on your hook, and thanks for the offer, but - in defense of my rewriting what was proposed (my hook would again be different from all of these, but I try to help the nominator): the J. Kennedy fact is not plot in the sense we want to avoid as something fictional, but may be the common ground to connect to Halston. - Now, if he is famous and I'm the only one whom the name alone told zero, forget this ;) - Halston - "its subject" - could have been a place, a ship, ... - a hook should not rely on people already knowing what it is. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:59, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
No, I got you. So, Halston is a famous fashion designer, very famous for the pillbox hat incident, but we can't assume anyone would know him. Nobody needs to know him to understand a hook about a movie. Because it shouldn't be about him. He's not the bold article.
And I think this is an important thing that is ruled out by PLOT, so let me explain. My point was, your entire hook is a very long-winded way of describing him, not the movie - and whether he's "the American fashion designer" or "the American fashion designer who designed the iconic pillbox hat" or "the American fashion designer who designed the iconic pillbox hat that Jacqueline Kennedy wore" or "the American fashion designer who designed the iconic pillbox hat that Jacqueline Kennedy wore to her husband's presidential inauguration", it is just an ever-more wordy way of replacing his name. He could be a complete unknown and it would be the same point - say it was a fictional film with a brand new character nobody knows, we wouldn't say "X movie is about Y character", even if you spun it into "X movie is about the person who did Y with Z who did A". Either it's saying "film is about main character" in a far too convoluted way, or it is summarizing the PLOT (i.e. it's what the character does in the work - fiction or not, you will know the hook fact by merely watching the work, thus it doesn't have anything "real life" i.e. outside of the film content. The hat is in the movie, it is PLOT).
Basically, we don't assume people know who the film is about, but it's not hooky to simply tell them who that is, no matter how many details of that person you give. Like, would you say "Mission Impossible is about an American spy who famously hangs from a rappel wire in an impossible mission he survived"? No. Nor would you say, if you want to challenge how I see PLOT applying, "that Mission Impossible stars the American actor known for his short stature, wonky smile, and Scientology". Why use such lengthy descriptors and avoid a name, why describe a person instead of say anything about the boldlinked movie? We can write plenty of interesting hooks about movies without ever needing to identify the subject, and simply "fashion designer" is an adequate descriptor of Halston, if he is mentioned, for those that don't know. Kingsif (talk) 09:57, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
You're right, Halston could be about anything, and while your point seems to be that we should just tell people what that is (and in a way that establishes the notability as if it was the opening sentence of his article), my point is that it doesn't matter at all whether people know what a movie is about or not. It's hooky to say "that Jaws deliberately avoided showing a shark, both to create suspense and because the production did not have a waterproof model", and not "Jaws is about three men on a small boat who are scared by a shark". A documentary example for perhaps better comparison: hooky is "that one of the interviewees describing violence towards trans women in Paris is Burning was killed in an incidence of this during production", and not "Paris is Burning is about the American drag queens and trans women from the New York ball scene". Kingsif (talk) 10:06, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
  • And since I've added so much, I can do a review not considering my proposed hooks. The good: article new and long enough, written well enough, interesting and sourced. Second nom so no QPQ needed. Hooks are sourced inline (well, in footnote) and check out...
  • Symbol possible vote.svg And the bad: but the article sections are all out of order and "Production notes" is non-standard ("Production", it should be). This should be easily solvable. Hooks ALT0 through ALT2 are a mix of Easter egg and PLOT violations, with some plain "so what?" I am concerned with potential copyvio and certain at least close paraphrasing shown here from throughout the first two paragraphs of the "Production notes", the close para shown here, and I'll note that the article uses quotations so lengthy that they are +20% of their original sources, a similar concern. I'd like to ask @Isaidnoway: about the close paraphrasing, and someone else can look at the hooks. Kingsif (talk) 11:13, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
  • There is absolutely no copyvio. The short phrases in the production section are limited, minimal and clearly attributed to Frédéric Tcheng, the director of the film. The Vogue passages are direct quotes supported by a reliable souce. Per - WP:PARAPHRASE - Limited close paraphrasing is appropriate within reason, as is quoting, so long as the material is clearly attributed in the text. Limited close paraphrasing is also appropriate if there are only a limited number of ways to say the same thing. There are no easter eggs in any of my hooks, (a message, image, or feature hidden in a video game, film, or other, usually electronic, medium). My preferred hooks are the original one and ALT 2. If those are not acceptable, I'm fine with that. If another hook is developed and used, I'm fine with that. If the DYK is declined, I'm fine with that as well. This was my first attempt at a self-nomination, and I definitely learned something for any potential future noms. Isaidnoway (talk) 14:01, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
  • You're wrong on both accounts, and I'll assume it's misunderstandings: linking to the film when you're referring to the person is an Easter egg, where DYK is the medium, and there are clear instances of whole fragments or sentences that are prose from the sources - not quotations - either directly lifted or only slightly rearranged. That needs fixing: above, I linked comparisons of source and article text, and the worst is even highlighted, so you can't credibly deny it. Hooks about works aren't always easy to write, but not mentioning the film when the article is the film isn't going to pass. I'm trying to give extensive feedback to be helpful to someone new to DYK, rather than just say "no", so assuming your last sentence isn't spitefully sarcastic, you're welcome. Kingsif (talk) 14:34, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
  • No, there is not any misunderstandings, just disagreement. I linked to the most common definition of an easter egg in relation to the media (which I assumed we were talking about, and not the Easter Bunny) and most frequently seen in films, like 16 of the best movie Easter eggs, surely you recognize that terms you've hijacked for use in the DYK medium, don't necessarily reflect the mainstream view. I just assumed you all were using the common definition incorrectly. My bad, now I know. And I also linked you to the relevant policy WP:PARAPHRASE. And the analysis of the text vs source, shows 69 out of 501 words in that particular section, and when you subtract commonly used words that can't be avoided like "a" "to" "the" "that", the number is even less. So it is limited, fair use and attributed to the person who said it. I will add to that section the publication that interviewed Frédéric Tcheng and the date of the source as well. Thanks for your feedback. Isaidnoway (talk) 16:39, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Let's see if you'll cooperate with someone else, needed to review alt hooks anyway. Remember, highlighting only shows up words that are used in long sequences unchanged, which is copyvio - close paraphrasing you actually have to read and I assure you is much more than 11% of the source (69/501 is still high anyway) - and this also means that all those auxiliary words should be counted because their placement contributes to direct copying.

Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol question.svg I conducted a copyedit of the article, which I think removed most of the paraphrasing concerns. Please review the changes to ensure I didn't change the meaning of sentences. I am concerned that the critical reception section is basically a series of quotes from reviews and MOS:QUOTE says Wikipedia should not overuse quotes. I'd recommend that editors try to paraphrase some of the reviews, although I will not deny approval for this hook because of this.

I added a "cn" tag and a "who" tag to the article that should be resolved before approval. As for the hooks, all of them are cited by their respective sources, but ALT 5 isn't exactly in the article, so I crossed it out. My preference is ALT 6, as it is short, hooky, talks about the documentary and is the most intersting to me. I also like ALT 7 if slightly reworded. Please ping me when the cn tag and who tag are addressed so I can re-review the article. Z1720 (talk) 23:30, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

Double Tenth Agreement

5x expanded by Apot8511 (talk). Self-nominated at 07:55, 25 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol possible vote.svg The article has been expanded enough and I assume good faith on the references that I can't access. The sentence in the lead - "The agreement was signed at what is now the Red Rock Village Museum in Chongqing." - should be referenced and it would probably be best for it to also be in the body of the article. The first paragraph in the China in 1945 section needs citations. "The battles resulted in a victory for Mao and the CCP which skewed the negotiations to Mao's favour." under the Events section needs a citation at the end, but I do see that the information is in the citation in the next paragraph so it should be easy to just repeat it up above. The last two issues are that the 5th reference and the 36th reference have formatting errors. SL93 (talk) 18:23, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

English Building, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

  • ... that according to campus legend, the English Building at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is haunted by the ghost of a female student who drowned in the building's pool? Students using the building have reported mysterious phenomena and the faint voice of a woman sounding from nowhere." Source:[11]

Created by Chevsapher (talk). Nominated by JustinMal1 (talk) at 13:46, 17 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol possible vote.svg Article new and long enough, generally well written but poorly sourced. I would go so far as to say most of the article is unsourced or the sources aren't clear. I also highly recommend moving the article to English Building, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Just about every university will have an "English building", and many of them will be officially called that, let alone all the buildings named after people called English, or representing England at various events. It needs the disambiguation unless you think it's undoubtedly the main thing in existence referred to as "English building" (the answer is no, it isn't). What sources are used appear to be almost entirely primary sources, not indicating that it has outside notability. I am also concerned that Chevsapher has undisclosed COI (editing behavior)? Similarly, I would like more information on the licenses for the images in the article. But you and JustinMal1 still have a few more days to work on the article before it would even be too late to nominate for DYK, and I'd offer a grace period for improvements after that date (24th) too. Kingsif (talk) 17:27, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the helpful feedback. To address your points:
  • ~95% of the article is sourced, and the few statements that are not sourced are common general knowledge. If I need to change the citation style, I am happy to do so.
  • I like the suggestion about creating disambiguation page, and I saw that JustinMal1 just moved the article to the suggested namespace.
  • Concerning the potential COI, I am a student at the university, but I am not affiliated with the units that occupy the building. If this is still qualifiable as a COI, I will stop editing University of Illinois articles.
  • The images' origins and licenses are explained on their Wikimedia pages. The photos I personally uploaded are photos I took myself.
  • I tried to avoid primary sources, but I will agree that many of the secondary sources are internal to the university. To add more external sources, I would need to dig more into two main reasons why the building is externally relevant, which are (1) it was designed by the pre-eminent architectural firm of the Beaux-Arts era, and (2) it was the home of one of the most influential early home economics departments in the U.S., whose research helped drive the early-20th-century revolution in domestic efficiency. I would love to flesh out this article more fully, but unfortunately, my time is limited. I cannot yet commit to spending a few full days with a stack of books.

  • I've checked the hook refs and I'm finding it tricky. Sachs says "THE MOUTH ORGAN (Chinese shêng, Japanese shô) was originally made with a gourd. Today the gourd is replaced by a piece of wood cut in the same" and later "In China the mouth organ is said to have been invented by Emperor Nyu-kwa in the third millennium B.C. as an imitation of the bird Phoenix" and "In the most highly developed form of the raft-shaped mouth organ, in Middle and South Laos, the two rafts, sometimes as tall as twelve feet, are laid on top of each other and this double raft pierces through an elongated, wooden windchest". Sachs is discussing mouth organs not specifically gourd mouth organs, making me wonder if these refs are applicable or not. I don't know? Desertarun (talk) 19:07, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg @Kavyansh.Singh: The main hook is incorrect. I remember that campaign well. They called him "Jimmy who?" because most people had never heard of him outside of the US State of Georgia. Even Carter joked about himself as "Jimmy who?" He was popular enough to win the nomination for the Democratic candidate, and popular enough to win the election. His popularity as President took some hits because of national issues he had to deal with. But it was never an issue in the 1976 Presidential campaign. — Maile (talk) 18:05, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
  • @Maile66: Hi, thanks for your comments. By saying unpopularity, I ment the same that he was not popular or less known throughout the nation except Georgia. If you think the hook needs rephrasing, kindly suggest as it is almost 200 characters. Also, alt 1 can be considered. Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 18:23, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

 Comment: "lack of name recognition" or "unfamiliarity to voters" might be the phrase you are looking for that first hook, not "unpopularity". "Unpopularity" would be misunderstood to mean that he had low-approval. SecretName101 (talk) 15:46, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
Hi @SecretName101: Thanks for your comments, I have made the changes, but that makes the hook slightly over 200 characters. What else can be changed to make it under the limit of characters. Also, I have made some changes in Alt 1, which makes it better. Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 15:59, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
I'd rephrase ALT2 as "mocked for his unfamiliarity". The missing "his" makes it grammatically incorrect. SecretName101 (talk) 17:25, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
@SecretName101:  Done But the issue is that the image doesn't relate with the hook of Alt 1. I'd still prefer cutting short main hook by removing "Jimmy who?" part. Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 17:34, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

GRuban Just to be clear, I did not upload the original image, just cropped a image already available on commons (File:Jimmy Carter Library and Museum 16.JPG). It was uploaded almost 11 years ago by Piotrus which is licensed as user's own work (under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license) It states "Jimmy Carter Library and Museum" in description, so I guess that the image has been photographed by the user from Carter Library.

Other material, such as donated items and White House Communications Agency news videotapes, are subject to copyright law."

  • New enough (just barely), long enough. QPQ done. While Earwig picks up this as almost identical to the German article, I find it more likely that they were the ones stealing. Slight neutrality issues ("impressive", "fascinating" shouldn't be stated in Wikipedia's voice). The "Roles" section is entirely unsourced. Caption for the grave picture should be translated, and I don't quite see the point of the ad. Thesis title is mixed German/English and not in the source cited. (Untranslating the English part probably fixes that, see the thesis). I find it fascinating that he had a PhD and an abortive academic career before becoming a singer. But your hook works (may want to add "pictured"), and is within the rules. Symbol question.svg as some points about the article should be improved (neutrality, unreferenced section). —Kusma (talk) 23:22, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
    Thank you for looking into this, a tough one, long, translated from German not by me! - I avoided the two words. I'd just drop the roles list, if it wasn't to not leave the images without something on the left. No idea yet where to look for a ref. The ad tells me that this person will have attracted listeners by just his name, but sure, I know that only from being able to read German. Caption translated. - We could drop the roles and those two pics and be done, right? On the other hand, that's an impressive list. I'll try, help welcome. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:42, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

    Thank you, this is better. Without any sourcing, I am not a fan of the Roles section: we know nothing of the context (they could all have been private viewings for the Duke of Meiningen, or they could be on his international tours). In the classic style of the German Wikipedia, we are given a list with dozens of places where sources might be, but no indication of what the sources of the article truly are. —Kusma (talk) 10:18, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

  • New enough, promoted to GA on May 22. Long enough, at over 10,000 characters. Assuming sources were checked at GAN. Neutral, no plagiarism. Hook cited, interesting. No copyvios with image, used in article. QPD done. Is there a reason there's no second hook? If so, and since the one hook that's here is fine, I'll pass this to DYK if you make a good case for suggesting only one hook.
  • Here's my suggestion for your hook: ... that in the song [or hymn] "Die güldne Sonne voll Freud und Wonne", the poet found a new metre, and the composer a new melody, to reflect the difficulty in getting up in the morning? It's under 200 characters and although it doesn't exactly follow the wording in the article, I think a slight rewording is fine for DYK. It also makes it more relatable; I mean, which of us has experienced not wanting to get up in the morning?

Portrait of a Woman with Mask

Created by JeBonSer (talk). Self-nominated at 23:31, 23 May 2021 (UTC).

Symbol question.svg JeBonSer, that's an interesting painting, on few but good sources, no copyvio obvious. The image is licensed, and a DYK without it would miss the point. I find some things unusual in the article. I reduced overlinking myself, but please help me:
  1. The lead should be a summary! Not details about dimensions. Please have everything from the lead also in the body, with the ref in the body, and have only important facts in the lead.
  2. The link to the current city of Venice is not helpful, - what we need is a link to the Venetian art of a former period, and best with a year or two. At present, what the hook claims is not even in the article: that her work looks like something earlier. Not every reader will be versed in art history enough to know without being told.
  3. I believe that you could use the pdf for a reference.
  4. I don't read Italian besides being able to order from a menu, so can't tell if the English ref is just a translation of the Italian, in which case we'd need only one.
The hook has a bit of the same problem (as 2. above): as the painter is not named, an unprepared reader will not even see two periods in the pastel, at a glance at least. Best advice I can give: try an easier hook. The picture alone will attract, - it doesn't have to be super fancy. In article and hook, I'd like to see sooner that the creator was a woman, but that may be just me. I'd prefer her name in the hook rather than in the already long image caption. I will not approve a hook that says "us", - "we" and "us" don't belong in Wikipedia (unless in quotes). I removed a comma in the hook that broke the sentence. Please word a new hook below. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:04, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
Comment Gerda, the lead is EXACTLY the right place to put dimensions! Venetian painting could be linked, to the appropriate section. I agree the hook is odd. As usual with this nominator, the terrible English should be the first thing to mention " it is now currently displayed..." and so on. User:JeBonSer, "now" and "currently" mean the same thing. Johnbod (talk) 16:55, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

ALT1: ... that the Portrait of a Woman with Mask (pictured) by Rosalba Carriera has no exact date when it was being painted, but through a label at the back of the portrait this gives help to its keepers to trace its origins?

@Gerda Arendt: Resolved. JeBonSer (talk | sign) 09:14, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for offering a new hook, but I confess I find it wordy. Perhaps I should leave reviewing to a native speaker. "date when it was being painted" is long for nothing, "gives help" could be simpler, and why mention "keepers" at all? Actually, the same is true for the article, just look at "The extraordinary skill of Carriera in arts can be easily seen in the portrait including Venetian painter's influence of the 18th-century Venetian style of paintings that can be easily recognised on this portrait." - duplications and saying something such as "extraordinary skill" as if a fact. I'm afraid if the article is trimmed to a concise style - in this case drop repetition of "Venetian", and use less flowery language, it might be too short. Do you want to continue with me, or rather ask for a different reviewer". --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:45, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

I wouldn't bother you if this was the only one, but I see a flood of pretty portraits, and they get pictured, and other art is supposed to go without. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:52, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Gerda, I think command of English is the major stumbling block here; many of the claims are so garbled that checking them against the sources is futile, unless reviewers committed to fully rewriting the article, basically from scratch. In fact, as this has obviously taken up a lot of your time, and I see there were other similar noms, would even to as far as suggesting a Wikipedia:Competence is required ban from DYK.

  • Symbol delete vote.svg The article, after being edited, is currently at 1153 prose characters, too short for DYK. The prose is not up to DYK quality, the new hook is not interesting, and I find it extremely telling that two of the article's three sources attribute this painting not to Rosalba Carriera but to Charles-Antoine Coypel (who is French), and the third, a Google page, references an external link (artgate-cariplo.it) that says it's Coypel rather than Carriera. I see no point in continuing this nomination any further given so many problems with the article. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:07, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
  • I don't understand the original hook: "... gives us a clue that the portrait was painted during the artist's own era"? Every artist paints during their own era. If the domino mask is supposed to pinpoint a specific era, then the hook should say "... gives us a clue that the portrait was painted during the early 18th century" or something like that. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 02:58, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Wyiu06 did a little over a threefold expansion, which is a good job, but unfortunately that isn't sufficient for this article to run at DYK. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:26, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

Uncited sentence at the end of the history section, not seeing where the facts in ALT1 are in the article unless I totally missed it, and the direct quote for ALT0 needs to have a citation directly following the sentence in the article containing the quote.

  • Symbol question.svg Article is new enough and long enough. It is well sourced, but I did add a citation needed tag that needs to be addressed. The article appears to be written neutrally, I think it would be aided by merging some of those one-sentence paragraphs, but that's not a DYK requirement. Hook facts are in the article and cited. ALT0 is supported by the second paragraph of "Aftermath", ALT1 has its own subsection, ALT2 is there too but a little less visible (I see a mention of tension in the lead and a "tense car ride", the "failure to cooperate").

China–Pakistan Free Trade Agreement

5x expanded by S2102sa (talk). Self-nominated at 08:36, 7 June 2021 (UTC).

  • General eligibility:
  • New Enough: Red XN - Nominator started to significantly expand the article on 11 May, 27 days prior to nomination. The second phase started on 25 May, but all edits on 25-31 May cannot be considered a 5x expansion (they were, if anything, a 2x expansion). Also, per the fivefold rule, the seven days start from the day you started expanding the article, not when you finished doing so, so you have placed the article under the wrong date (should have been 11 May).
  • Long Enough: Green tickY

Policy compliance:

Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
QPQ: None required.

Overall: Symbol delete vote.svg The article fails the "newness" criterion for eligibility by a wide margin (I'd not pay that much attention if the article was a day too late, but 27 days is a little too long). The article should have been nominated under the 11 May section. The length is good (ca. 9.5K characters, 1.5K words). Sourcing is pretty good, though addition of (more) news articles from reliable sources would be great. Even as the consequences for China are mentioned, the article is focused much more on the Pakistani side of the deal (evaluations/criticisms, for instance, do not mention any Chinese reactions at all). That is a pity, because the hook is very good. Anyway, there is a lot to work on the article, and next time be tighter with your schedule. Your edits are very much appreciated and the article looks certainly better than the version from late April, so keep going. Cheers. This is my second DYK review. Szmenderowiecki (talk) 00:17, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

@Szmenderowiecki: Thanks for the feedback! Since this is a fairly new topic, sources are limited. I exhausted pretty much all of the reliable journal articles and the news articles are reporting the exact same information, making it redundant to use more of them. Criticisms/evaluations/reactions from China was not apparent in any of the journal articles nor the newspapers, so I wrote the article with what reliable information was available. It might simply be that Pakistani scholarship has been more inclined to report on the CPFTA, or sources that are in English are written mostly by Pakistani scholars. When more information arises on China's p.o.v. on the FTA as it progresses, I'll be sure to update the page. Thank you again for the feedback! S2102sa (talk) 09:39, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Theeelman (talk) 22:27, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
  • @Theeelman: The nomination looks great so far, thanks for updating it! Definitely prefer ALT1 hook. The article is long enough and new enough relative to the nomination date. The sources are from Library of Western Belvedere, which says on the website has connection with Fuzhou University and the source page itself has inline citations, so I assume it's reliable. This is your first nomination and first five nominations, QPQ is irrelevant. However, there's still one another problem. DYK rule of thumb is that the article should have at least one minimum inline citation per paragraph excluding the lead. Can you please add citations to uncited paragraphs?

The article cites sources (although there is CS1 error in reference [9]). A QPQ is done. The hook is under 200 characters (43 characters), is cited (1), and meets the formatting guidelines. But I guess the hook isn't interesting to a broad audience. The source shows that "the leopards were extinct or on the verge of extinction in Turkey towards the end of the 20th century, but recent photographic evidence proves their survival." The fact that leopards live in the forest in Turkey needs to be rephrased to make the hook interesting. Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 04:41, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for reviewing. Have reworded hook with a better verb. I am not American myself but a lot of readers are and I guess ALT1 would be now be surprising for them as it was for me as a Brit - any USA readers like to comment.

Hi Chidgk1, thanks for your contribution, but I am still concerned about hook, which is not interesting to a broad audience. Leopards living or roaming in forest of Turkey doesn't grab attention, until they have been recently found, and were previously considered extinct. I suggest the following hook:
"... that recent photographic record confirms existence of leopards in Turkey's forest, which were considered to be extinct in late 20th century?"

Symbol possible vote.svg New enough, long enough, the "Distribution of forests" section has many uncited paragraphs and statements; these need references before a hook can be approved. No plagiarism or paraphrasing concerns. QPQ completed. ALT 2 and 3 are not in the article, so that information needs to be added. I suggest a reworded ALT below:

This alt wikilinks extirpated and says the animal was spotted in a forest in Turkey, which I think is better phrasing as there is more than one forest in the country. Please post your thoughts below. Z1720 (talk) 18:04, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

It is very rare but not just in one forest (just added another cite to show that). If "researchers spotted" also includes camera traps then ALT4 is fine by me. In which case I would not need to add ALT2 and ALT3. Chidgk1 (talk) 18:11, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

  • Suggesting "oldest hotel", because "thought to be" already conveys that it's a good guess, but a "oldest known hotel" suggests that there are some "unknown hotels" knocking about. Bogger (talk) 19:35, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
@Bogger: The problem with that, is that from my experience, somebody will probably complain at WP:ERRORS that "oldest hotel" is not sufficiently verified when this hits the main page. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 20:00, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Will review...@Ritchie333: & @Smirkybec:...in meantime check Woodenbridge Hotel. Firsts and oldest are sometimes difficult. Whispyhistory (talk) 12:51, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
The source says the Woodenbridge Hotel was founded in 1608 as a coaching inn, which is not quite the same thing, although particularly archaically the term "hotel" has been used for what we might today call a "pub". Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:05, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Good discussion @Ritchie333:. What is the difference between "inn" and "hotel"? "The Royal Hibernian Hotel had been there for two centuries, beginning life as a coaching inn." [31]... Another first...Old Glenbigh Hotel[32]? Otherwise so far...new enough, no copyvio issues, long enough, QPQ provided. Whispyhistory (talk) 19:12, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Well I'm not a reliable source, but as I understand it, an "inn" is somewhere you stayed overnight as part of an overall journey, while a "hotel" is somewhere you stayed as a temporary accommodation at the end of it. Since you can nowadays drive from Malin to Mizen in a day, this distinction has fallen out of use. As for what to do with the hook and the article, ALT1 : ... that the Royal Hibernian Hotel is thought to be one of the oldest hotels in Ireland? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 21:41, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg Sorry for delayed reply. Did they all start as inns? Are these correct: The Royal Hibernian Hotel started in 1751 as a coaching inn [33]. Woodenbridge Hotel was founded in 1608 as an inn. The Glenbeigh Hotel dates back to 1792 when it opened its doors as a Stage Coach Inn [34]? I consider you very reliable btw...but who says it was the first? The source says when they closed, the Royal Hibernian Hotel claimed to be the first hotel in Ireland. If anyone else would like to help, please do. Whispyhistory (talk) 15:39, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
There's a transcript of a paper on public dining in Ireland (which the main source used in the article is an extract from) that says "The origin of the Royal Hibernian Hotel, Dawson Street, goes back to 1751, which makes it the oldest known hotel in Ireland (Corr, 1987, p. 5)." I've got no idea what source is "Corr, 1987" but it does mean the claim to be oldest known hotel is a little more verifiable (as opposed to actually true). I think I'm going to need Smirkybec's collection of Irish book sources at this point to progress further. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:52, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
Found the paper you mentioned "The origin of the Royal Hibernian Hotel, Dawson Street, goes back to 1751, which makes it the oldest known hotel in Ireland" [35]. You could add to the article as a source. What is "known hotel"? Does that mean the Woodenbridge Hotel was the first unknown hotel? Let me know what you find. This reminds me of the articles I did on first transplants...or first successful transplant... or first transplant in a human etc. Sorry for nit-picking.

Mandau Talawang Pancasila

Source: van Klinken, Gerry (2006). Colonizing Borneo: State-Building and Ethnicity in Central Kalimantan. KITLV.

"The Buntok attack had been launched, the attackers now revealed in a letter, by a movement called Telabang Pantjasila Sektor Dajak. Telabang (or telawang) is a shield; Pantjasila was the Indonesian national ideology, a term that clearly conveyed loyalty to Jakarta. The attackers explained that they had been motivated by grievances, such as their dissatisfaction with government corruption and the cancellation of the marsh drainage scheme. The group added (no doubt with an eye to attracting potential sponsors in Jakarta) that it was ready “to die for” Pantjasila. The next day, the group rebaptized itself in even more florid, but slightly less overtly Dayak, terms as Mandau Telabang Pantjasila (mandau refers to a Dayak cutlass). It announced that its leader was Ch. Simbar, alias Mandolin, a Ma’anyan Dayak tribesman. Most importantly, it declared its opposition to the loosely allied anti-Jakarta rebel movements, KRJT, Darul Islam, and the Tentara Islam Indonesia"[1]
"The gang allegedly burned houses, raped women, then ran off with gold and diamonds they had robbed from the locals, as well as materials stolen from government offices. The marauders headed north to Kuala Kurung, along the Kahayan River, apparently intent on a repeat performance. They always left leaflets in their wake—this was a modern movement!—promoting the creation of Central Kalimantan province, asserting Dayak commitment to Sukarno, and declaring opposition to an Islamic Indonesia. "[2]


"The issue of Central Kalimantan was no doubt on the agenda of an important military meeting set to discuss martial law and regional autonomy in mid-April 1957. Security conditions in the region were now ideal, Tjilik Riwut and the new military commander of Kalimantan declared. Indeed, after having done his part, Simbar had been eased out of the picture. He and Embang came out of the jungle and were taken to meet acting Kalimantan governor, Sarkawie, and his entourage in Banjarmasin in March. Simbar told them he had “ten thousand” men committed to him all over Central Kalimantan. The group then travelled together to Buntok and to Bundar to witness four hundred Tentara Lawong members in each place take a symbolic oath of loyalty to the state. The following month, the gang members figured as guests of honor at official celebrations repeated in each of the three regencies that were to join the province. Simbar and Embang’s gangs were rebaptized the Youth Front for the Development of Central Kalimantan; the group was still led by Simbar, who was subsequently counted among the heroes of Central Kalimantan."

Source: "The New Age movement has essentially recast Joachim de Flores's twelfth-century 'Three Ages of History' theory into astrological terminology ... On the other hand, with its essential distance from both Christian terminology and astrological reinterpretation of the ages of history, contemporary Paganism does not entertain the notions of either literal apocalypticism or metaphorical millenarianism."

  • Symbol possible vote.svg I quite like that we have this article now, and it technically passes DYK shape, but it seems to have some noticeable gaps, and I'm not sold on either proposed hook. In particular, there's no discussion of how outsiders to both often use "New Age" as a blanket term for a cluster of faiths including both Neopaganism and what the article defines as New Age, including the Pew Research Center's classification of faith in America. (I think that could be grounds for a decent ALT2 when added, although I'm not currently focusing on alternative hooks until the other issues are resolved.) I particularly think you should expand on the New-Age-as-insult description, if the sourcing exists to do so; this is something I see a lot, to the point of treating it as outright charlatanism. Although, to counter that -- I also think this article scans as written rather more from the Neopagan perspective, and that there isn't quite enough weight on the New Age perspective. I also see a fairly homogenous idea of what "New Age", a heterogeneous term if there ever was one, is (particularly noting the "battle between light and darkness" idea, when many LHPers are much closer to New Age than they are to Neopagan!). I think there are neutrality and weight issues as you stand, in addition to the matter of not being sold on the current hooks. Vaticidalprophet 09:56, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
  • I expanded a bit using the entry on "Paganism and the New Age" from Brill's Handbook of New Age, which hopefully gives more of a New Age focus (although it's written by "a scholar of Wicca", Harrington p. 438). But the pagan emphasis is somewhat unavoidable; as the article explains, New Age material is less inclined to address distinctions, so much of the useful material here will be about pagans pointing out differences. As for using New Age as an umbrella term that includes paganism, this is covered in the "Relations" section, and described in the sources as less common in the 21st century. I've expanded on it now and given it its own subheading. But I'm reluctant about using it in a hook, because recent academic sources don't really do it.
The sources mention New-Age-as-insult, but don't really go into detail about it, but I've added it to the lead section now. I added left-hand path as a "see also" link but couldn't find sources that address it within this discourse; it might fit better in an article comparing occultism to either New Age or modern Paganism, if that's notable, or maybe an article on occulture. There are several subjects that are related in similar ways: Theosophy, renaissance magic etc, but if they aren't explicitly compared in the sources there isn't much we can do without WP:SYNTH. Ffranc (talk) 14:07, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
All good. I've been thinking about this; it's a hard topic to confidently come up with a hook for. I'm still not convinced the 'average reader' looking at Wikipedia's main page knows that these are different concepts (or that outside researchers are even in the 21st century as inclined to treat these differently at the article posits), and I think it'd be important for the hook to highlight that in a way I don't think either current hook does. Some alts?:
ALT2: ...that modern Paganism and New Age religions can be distinguished by their focus on collectivism and individualism respectively?
ALT3: ...that Michael York, contrasting modern Paganism and the New Age, argued the two are "rival theologies" on opposite ends of a "Gnostic-Pagan divide"?
I've asked around a bit about hooks, because I think this might do well with having someone who doesn't know much about the topic look at it to find what stands out as hooky. Vaticidalprophet 00:50, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
I struck ALT2 because the dichotomy isn't as clear as that, neither in the sources nor the article, and the terminology is politically charged. The hook with the York quotes work, although I think it's less hooky than the original two. Ffranc (talk) 08:51, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
Comment A DYK article does not need to pass a GA style review. It needs to be a "start" class and this article is.

No attempt to perform a GAN intended. I had concerns about the article's neutrality/balance, and putting such on the main page is a move to be cautious about. I also didn't spot a hooky hook out of the two proferred. Vaticidalprophet 00:50, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

The ref William Davenport, the Slave Trade, and Merchant Enterprise in Eighteenth-Century Liverpool by Nicholas James Radburn (2009) says on page 13: "Throughout his thirty-eight year career as a ship owner, he invested in 163 slaving ventures, more than any other merchant in the history of the Liverpool slave trade. These vessels carried nearly 40,000 Africans to the Americas, and involved a personal investment from Davenport of £127,000, equivalent to £10 million sterling today. Davenport‘s lengthy involvement in the slave trade, coupled with his substantial personal investment made him one of the largest and most ubiquitous slaving merchants of his day."

Rizzle13, I'm surprised that you think "appalling" is not neutral, but "slave", as a noun, is. There was already one example of "enslaved people" or "enslaved person" in the article, and I've tried to change as many as I could. We should not essentialize the personhood of a victim of kidnapping and enslavement down to a single word. Anyway, there is another problem: the "Abolition" section really is not connected to the subject of the article--and so, the image (which was never simply the image of an enslaved person) isn't connected to the subject either. Nor do I see, given what the article says about the subject, an easy connection between the subject and the Society for Effecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Desertarun, maybe there is more in your sources. I do think that the two Alt hooks are great, but I don't think putting that image in there is appropriate. Sorry.

ALT1: ... that the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, which is the world's most expensive street-legal new car, will have only three cars built?

@Andrew Davidson:Modified the hook. Pretty sure the Lunar rover was not street legal. I have also removed the celebrity owner parts (they were added by some IPs). The backward copy template has been added. I have added all the information I could salvage into the article though because it is an ultra luxury car - the engineering parts also ended up sounding luxurious. I am not able to find a relevant image, not even one of the old boat tails (which are copyright free). I will try to add some more information to make it more neutral by the time you revisit the article. Best. Jupitus Smart 16:29, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
  • I browsed for sources myself to look for one that wasn't just churnalism – recycling a press release or other people's reports. I found a first-hand report which seems to ring true. One point made by this is that these vehicles are custom coach-built and so there's not a standard list price. The price will be individual to each client and RR aren't saying what it is, just as they aren't saying who the clients are. So, it seems difficult to make firm claims based on an unknown variable.
  • As for the street-legal idea, this would need confirmation. Sometimes, high-end cars are not street-legal and so can only be driven on race-tracks or private roads. And even some more mundane cars may not be legal in certain jurisdictions – see Illegal Vehicles Banned in America, for example.

@Andrew Davidson: How about a new hook like the one above?. Jupitus Smart 18:02, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
Listing the various items of bling might make a good hook but we should avoid suggesting that these are standard production items as they are tailored to each client and there's only one example so far. I suggest "the first Rolls-Royce Boat Tail..."
As for the issue of price and client confidentiality, you might emphasise this by saying that the rich client and exact price are not being divulged by RR so people are making guesses and estimates. This might give the hook an element of excitement and mystery...

Review: article created 13 June, article exceeds minimum length; many sources are offline but I had a look at some of the online ones and there didn't seem to be any overly close paraphrasing (there's not much that can be done with the lists of lines to be considered and conclusions of the commission); hook fact is interesting and mentioned in the article, happy to AGF on offline sourcing; a QPQ has been carried out; my only hold-up is a few missing citations in the first and third sentences of the "Report" section and the second sentence of the "Afterwards" section - Dumelow (talk) 07:00, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Thanks Dumelow, this commission covered a lot of ground in a very short time. I've added a citation for the first and third sentence of the "Report" section. The Minutes of the committee which is what I was referring to are in the bibliography, but were not referenced.
The second sentence of the "Afterwards" section is not possible to cite directly. The North Kent Railway never came into being and L&SWR did not extend to London Bridge. The SER did extend from London Bridge to Waterloo East and Charing Cross in 1864 - the first item in the bullet list - which is cited.

  • ALT1: ... that Blacks are the fastest-growing demographic of vegans in the United States, with twice as many identifying as vegan as compared to the general population? Same source, "The fastest-growing vegan demographic is African Americans."
  • Comment: Apologies if this is nit-picky, but my understanding is that "African Americans" doesn't necessarily mean the same thing as "Black people in the United States". It might be good to ensure that the wording reflects the sources in that sense, both in the hooks and the article. ezlev (user/tlk/ctrbs) 20:01, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
ezlev, not at all. The sources in this article seem to use them interchangeably. Blacks is a bigger group than African-Americans, and since Black includes (for example) many people from Jamaica (which AA doesn't always), I think Black is probably correct here? Open to other arguments. —valereee (talk) 20:23, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
I think you're right that Black is probably the correct/ideal term to use here, I just worry that it might not align with the meaning of the sources – for example, the Pew Research Center survey referenced in the source for ALT0 may really have been discussing African Americans in the sense of "Black American citizens" or something else that's semantically different from "Black people in the United States". That's why I'm not sure of the best course of action here. ezlev (user/tlk/ctrbs) 20:29, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
Ezlev, sorry, how is Black Americans different from Black people in the US? —valereee (talk) 22:10, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
It's different because one can be in the US without being American. Again, nitpicky, and unfortunately the ambiguity lies in the sources themselves, which is why I suggested that it might be good to just use the same terminology they do although it's probably fine either way. ezlev (user/tlk/ctrbs) 22:28, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
So you're concerned the researchers were talking to a significant number of Blacks who were at the time in the US but weren't actually American citizens? —valereee (talk) 22:47, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
I wouldn't go so far as "concerned"... I was scrolling through the noms, saw what looked like a possible source–content inconsistency, figured I would point it out. Now that I've done that, I don't feel a need to keep discussing it unless you'd like to. You're probably right that the discrepancy wouldn't be significant. ezlev (user/tlk/ctrbs) 23:05, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Mahmud Jamal

  • Comment: In Canada, Supreme Court justices do not need to be confirmed in order to sit on the Supreme Court (as they do in the United States), so his assumption of his Supreme Court seat is merely a formality. Also, "visible minority" is the technically correct term in Canada (see the wikilink); "person of colour", while used in the source articles, is a relatively rare term in Canada, being used mostly in the United States.

  • Comment: Written by Rizzle13. Moved to mainspace by QuakerSquirrel. I know that there is some disagreement on whether "first to" hooks are of general interest. In this case, it's impressive/interesting that two members of a couple both served as presidents of higher ed institutions and that they were both the first Black person in that position, so I hope we can use that hook or something similar.

Hugo Marchand

  • ... that Hugo Marchand was named an étoile of Paris Opera Ballet at age 23, after he made an unexpected role debut when the company was touring in Japan? Source: "The preternaturally elegant Hugo Marchand has done just that at the Paris Opéra Ballet. In Pierre Lacotte's La Sylphide, the ballet that earned him a promotion to étoile at just 23...

  • Symbol possible vote.svg Article has more than 1,500 characters in prose. Sources have been cited properly and I found no copyright violations. Hook is interesting and good to go. User has yet to complete a QPQ and the article is below the 5x expansion requirement (started at 8,599 characters and currently standing at 35,261). If these issues can be fixed, then I see no problem with being put up for DYK. lullabying (talk) 21:19, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

  • ... that Maria Simon met her husband through the Jewish youth group Hashomer Hatzair in Austria but married him only when they were both living in exile in the UK? Source: "Nur ein junger Mann habe ihr gefallen, erinnert sich die heute 100-Jährige, »das war Josef Simon, den ich später in England geheiratet habe«. Der Skikurs entpuppte sich als Tarnveranstaltung der sozialistischen Mitschüler-Organisation, die zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon verboten war. Dort sei sie politisiert worden, sagt Simon rückblickend. [... ] In dieser Zeit trifft sie auch Josef Simon wieder, den sie 1944 heiratet." and "Also in 1944, she married Joseph Simon, who she had already known from her time in the socialist youth movement in Vienna."
    • ALT1:... that the Austrian centenarian Maria Simon became a Senior Representative at the World Federation for Mental Health after retiring from her job as a sociologist? Source: Even after retirement in 1983, Maria Simon maintained her international ties and active involvement in social work, for example as Senior Representative at the United Nation’s World Federation of Mental Health (WFMH).
  • Comment: In the first hook, the interesting point is that they knew each other in Austria, lost contact, and reconnected only after both fled to England.

  • Thank you for this wonderful article, Ashleyyoursmile. I must say that the proposed hook is rather underwhelming. Serbian Wikipedia claims that she was still performing at age 100, which would be far more interesting in my opinion. Surtsicna (talk) 09:50, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Hi Surtsicna, thank you for the comment. Unfortunately, I cannot find a reference that supports the claim. Here's an alternate hook though.

  • Let me know what you think of ALT1. If you can think of a better hook, please feel free to propose one. Ashleyyoursmile! 10:22, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
I have found references, including [58] and [59]. I would suggest something like the following:
ALT2: ... that Serbian actress Branka Veselinović (pictured), whose career started in 1938, still performs aged 102?
Surtsicna (talk) 11:01, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Thank you very much, Surtsicna. ALT2 is great and I have added the hook statement and references to the article. Feel free to strike out the other hooks. Ashleyyoursmile! 12:51, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
  • The article is brand new (created today), long enough (c. 2,300 characters), neutral, well-sourced, and free of any copyright issues (which I can attest to as a Serbo-Croatian speaker). QPQ done. All that is left is to approve the hook, which might not be appropriate for me to do given that I proposed it :) Surtsicna (talk) 13:23, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

Packaged Pleasures

  • ... that the 2014 book Packaged Pleasures investigated the history of consumer culture and how the rise of packaging for products created "transmissible packets of pleasure" for popular consumption? Source: "This shift in consumer culture is convincingly explained by the fact that “fleeting and sensory experiences” were transformed into “reproducible and transmissible packets of pleasure” (p.7) thanks to the design of new technologies that enabled the pleasure-giving substances of a product to be intensified, produced in larger quantities, attractively packaged, and peddled to the masses via the marketing and advertising industry."
