DYK for Farouk Afero[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 20 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Farouk Afero, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Indonesian film actor Farouk Afero shaved his head in protest at how cinemas treated domestic productions? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Farouk Afero. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Farouk Afero), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Cover image[edit]

In In a Chinese Temple Garden, we have a digital score, with the front page. Could we have the cover as an image, like for other of the composer's works? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:49, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

  • I don't see any images. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:03, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
The one I'd like is on page 2 of this. A comparable one is this, found with the composer and the piece. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:14, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
Hm. 1923, but we could check for copyright renewal. Adam Cuerden (talk) 16:16, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

I've made some changes per Sca's comment - mainly just pushing up the contrast in the lower half of the brightness a little more. Adam Cuerden (talk) 16:15, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Haven't received your email yet, but I think it should be perfectly clear that I think your method of "reviewing" is both against the letter (WP:FP? and spirit of FPC. So long as you keep it to comments, I can keep my peace. But when you oppose nominations with what boils down to "I just don't like it", rather than mentioning actual issues which can be addressed (i.e. disrupt the process), I will say exactly what I think of your "reviewing". In the spirit of "A picture's encyclopedic value (referred to as "EV") is given priority over its artistic value", I have voted for, and even, in the case of paintings, nominated, images which I personally felt were boring. Nocturne in Black and Gold – The Falling Rocket does nothing for me, and yet I nominated it because our scan was clearly "among the best examples of [that] subject that the encyclopedia has to offer". If you want to judge pictures solely on their aesthetic values, then please feel free to go to Commons' featured pictures process; they have a "wow" criteria which we don't, and which you would find quite welcoming.
Now regarding the pictures in question, As NickD said, and I can testify to from my own experiences as a semi-regular visitor of military museums (I think I'm at eight in three countries, but it might be more), military uniforms are central to military museums. Every Indonesian military museum I have visited has had at least one room especially for uniforms (and often another for standards), and the Australian National War Memorial has several in prominent positions. Uniforms, aside from serving a functional purpose, also represent and project the constructed identity of the nations which use them, as well as their priorities at the time the uniforms were used. In these two images we have a uniform on an actual person (rather than a mannequin), in the context of what has unfortunately been the most common battlefield environment for Britain in the 2000s. That the image is posed does not detract from it; rather, it allows the image to only show the uniform, without the eye being distracted by (for instance) a possible enemy combatant or the lines of (ruined?) houses reaching into the distance. The images are thus, in other words, perhaps the best encyclopedic tools to depict what they set out to depict. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 15:35, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Would you consider grabbing Priscilla Horton from this? Though, honestly, there's a lot of good stuff in that volume, and I'll happily do anything you grab, especially the colour images. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:11, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

  • I think I remember how to get those. I'll see what I can do later. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 11:08, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

DYK main page move late: queues empty and preps full[edit]

Chris, I'm not sure whether you or Cas Liber will see this message first (I'm doing the same on both your pages again)—I just logged in and found that the DYK promotion to main page is overdue, the queues are empty, and the preps (surprisingly) are all full. If you get there first, thanks for anything you can do. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:45, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/August 8, 2016[edit]

My past questions to music wikiprojects haven't gotten responses, and I don't have anyone to ask questions for this one. It was promoted in 2007, and the nominator is long gone. The lead says: "the band's second highest U.S. chart position to date". Below the lead: "this ranked as the band's highest chart position to date". The lead says: "Lyrics, particularly in the song "Jihad", describe the September 11 attacks from a terrorist perspective. A Mumbai-based Christian group, the Catholic Secular Forum, was outraged by this and thus demanded a recall." Below the lead, the concern was for "the sensibilities of the Muslims...and secular Indians ...". Thoughts? I'm not sure I can write TFA text for this one that I have confidence in. - Dank (push to talk) 03:09, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

  • I only selected this after checking User:Dweller's subpage. User:Casliber took a look at this one last February and said it looked ready, and I didn't see any major referencing gaps. I read "to date" as being "until that time", and we can probably implement the change in the article as well.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 04:25, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
    • Changed to as of 2015, per Slayer discography — Chris Woodrich (talk) 04:28, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
      • Thanks. I might be getting sick (norovirus maybe) ... if so, I'll have another look in a few days. - Dank (push to talk) 09:15, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
