DYK promoter question[edit]

Hi there,

Just a quick question about this. Don't think I've seen someone promote on behalf of someone else, and wondering why? Not that I think something fishy is going on, btw — Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:32, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Rhododendrites, AlexShih did the actual promotion—that is to say, he added that hook (and a number of others) to a prep set, but didn't do the also-required step of substituting the nomination's template, which is what causes the "promoted" wording and the closure of the template. So, as does happen sometimes when the promoter forgets that particular step, someone else has to close it so no one else will attempt to promote the same nomination later. That's what I did here; I left a note on AlexShih's talk page, because it's been quite a while since he's worked at DYK, and there have been significant changes since then. It wouldn't have been appropriate for me to leave my name as the promoting editor, since I didn't promote it, but it gets added automatically as part of substituting the template, so I had to correct it to the actual time AlexShih did the promotions.

Thanks for clarifying. There is much that happens in the background of DYK (outside of nomination pages themselves) that I do not know about. :) — Rhododendrites talk \\ 20:01, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Re: Changes in DYK promotion process[edit]

Thank you for correcting my careless mistakes! I did try to read about new changes but as you pointed out apparently totally missed the final step. Will be more careful. Alex ShihTalk 06:06, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

The Fountainhead now GA[edit]

Template:Did you know nominations/The Fountainhead was closed because of a faulty GA review. It's now a GA again. What needs to be done to re-activate the nom? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:31, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Gerda Arendt, it cannot be reopened, but a new page can be created at a different name, such as Template:Did you know nominations/The Fountainhead 2. If you'd like, I'll be happy to set up the page for you, or you can do it yourself. Let me know. BlueMoonset (talk) 23:34, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Re: Special occasion hooks being promoted on the wrong day[edit]

The reason why I could not promote prep 2 is because I assembled the set. I reshuffled so the special occasion is in order now, thanks. Alex ShihTalk 23:04, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

Sega Rally[edit]

I nominated it because someone I was talking to wanted to, but didn't know how to, so I did it as a favor. But I understand and agree with everything you said. Will keep in mind. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:24, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
