  • Oceanh, it has been over two weeks since you said you'd work on this nomination, and while you've been actively editing, it hasn't been on this article. Action is needed soon, otherwise the nomination may end up being closed. I hope you'll be able to give this attention in the next couple of days. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:36, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you EagerToddler39 for a thorough review. To fix all issues is a non-trivial task. This should preferably be done by someone with both in-depth knowledge of the English language, and access to the cited sources (and minimum one of these). To BlueMoonset: The other edits I have done lately are, from my perspective, relatively straightforward tasks. Oceanh (talk) 13:24, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Oslo byleksikon[edit]

Hi! Do you have Oslo byleksikon at ready hand? Could you check out a detail about Anton Tschudi's ownership of Økern? When did he buy and sell? Thanks in advance, Geschichte (talk) 16:05, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! My edition of Oslo byleksikon from 1966 does not have much about Tschudi's role at Økern. The entry on Økern has a section with focus on ownership of the farm until mid 1800s, the building of apartments in the area after World War II (Økernbråten etc), and further plans for business areas which were then not yet finished. The entry on Anton Tschudis vei briefly mentions Tschudi's role in parcelling out the farm, but no date information is given there. The encyclopedia Store Norske Leksikon mentions that smaller houses in the northern part of Økern date from 1910-15 onwards. It might be worth to check whether later editions of Oslo byleksikon contain more details. Oceanh (talk) 08:52, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Modesta Avila and Piute Ponds[edit]

Hi, you might be interested in nomming these.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:06, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Avila is at GAN..♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:08, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Both are interesting articles. I had a closer look at the Piute Ponds, and it appears that I have problems with accessing the google books references. As for Modesta Avila, I might wait until the outcome of the GAN, and if it has not already been dyk-nominated I might try to do it (provided I am still in "dyk modus" by then; the process may take anything from one day to several months).

Krefting infobox?[edit]

Hi Oceanh. What type of infobox do you think Kristian Krefting should have? Sportsman, military officer or businessman? Manxruler (talk) 20:33, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Great contributions to the article on Kristian Krefting! I also wondered what kind of infobox would be suitable, without conclusion. So you may freely decide what you think is best. Oceanh (talk) 21:31, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Interesting type. I'm at doubt myself, with the Olympic participation and championships, a sports infobox wouldn't be out of place. Then again, nor would a military infobox, with the wartime service and all. And, he was a businessman. Think I'll have to think about it for a little while. How about we take it to DYK too? Manxruler (talk) 22:00, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Agree that the article is suitable for DYK. I can provide the QPQ review, as I have a few "unused" reviews. Do you have any ideas for the hook? Oceanh (talk) 23:26, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I think I can think of a couple. Let me sleep on it a couple of hours, and I'll get back to you on it. Manxruler (talk) 00:00, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
How about: "... that Olympic footballer Kristian Krefting served as a liaison officer with British forces fighting in the 1940 Norwegian Campaign?" Manxruler (talk) 11:38, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good! Oceanh (talk) 11:50, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
By the way, as we speak I'm adding a military userbox. I tried the footballer one, but the military one gives much more room for various details relating to other sides of his life. Hope you agree with that call. Manxruler (talk) 12:18, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
That's fine. Oceanh (talk) 12:40, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Goody. As always, it's nice to collaborate with you. Cheers. Manxruler (talk) 12:51, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Oceanh, you nominated this GA, and the editor of it posted about some issues with your proposed hook and made some suggestions. As nominator, it's up to you to take these further: formalize new version(s?) of the hook and so on. Please visit this soon; there's no point in my calling for a reviewer given the nomination's current state, and it has been sitting for over three and a half weeks. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:48, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the notification, and for your continuous efforts on keeping old nominations alive. I have written out Ojorojo's suggested hook as alt1, and supplied an additional alt2.

Eurasian eagle-owl[edit]

Just pointing out that the chunk of plagiarised text you removed from Eurasian eagle-owl was not added by me but was present before I started working on the article. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 04:59, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, yes, I know, I tracked down that the text stems from edits made 3 1/2 years ago. There is of course also the possibility that the other website has copied text from Wikipedia. I considered asking for your advice on how to handle this, but decided to just remove the problematic text (according to the duplication tool, there also seems to be some problematic text left, in other sections, which I have not taken care of yet). I found it hard to rephrase this particular text, because it contains a large number of technical terms. But some of the removed information should probably be reinstated in a different form, in order to make the description more complete. What do you think? Oceanh (talk) 07:43, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I plan to rewrite and reinstate the information. What duplication tool do you use and where did this text come from? Cwmhiraeth (talk) 08:52, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Good. As pointed out by User:Nikkimaria in the DYK template, the article contained text identical to content from this source, Eurasian Eagle Owl - Bubo bubo. The Duplication Detector showed originally, and currently. Oceanh (talk) 10:34, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I'll have a look. I didn't know the article had been nominated for DYK. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:15, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I thought that the mention of a user in the nom template ("Improved to Good Article status by ...") was similar to pinging, so I normally do not inform extra about nominations. Note that I have also nominated Alnus glutinosa for dyk, hope that is ok. Oceanh (talk) 13:00, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Reviews and nominations[edit]

Thank you for reviewing a large number of my recent DYK nominations. With the end of the WikiCup, the number of new nominations I make will now decline and thankfully I won't feel constrained to expand articles about European departments and towns! Thank you also for the nomination of a number of GAs, mostly on birds and insects. Some of these I might have got around to nominating myself but others I would not. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:18, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Cwmhiraeth, Congratulations with the WikiCup! I can not handle too many ongoing DYK-reviews with unresolved issues, so it is a pleasure to review your nominations, in particular those on biological subjects. Also, I nominated a pile of new GAs for DYK the last month, and the number of GAs from you recently is impressing! Oceanh (talk) 18:02, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Thank you for your recent articles, including Weronika Gawlik, which I read with interest. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. For example, WikiProject Poland relies on such templates to generate listings such as Article Alerts, Popular Pages, Quality and Importance Matrix and the Cleanup Listing. Thanks to them, WikiProject members are more easily able to defend your work from deletion, or simply help try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information about using those talk page templates. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:29, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 12:02, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Oceanh, I don't mean to pour cold water on your efforts, but some of the DYK hooks you have proposed haven't been particularly inspiring. I'm sure I could have come up with a better hook for bootlegs, such as the occasion "Rubber Dubber" (?) managed to narrowly get busted by some very deft social engineering (making the local police look like chumps) and I was still thinking of something when I got the notification it was on the main page. Similar problems have occured at Template:Did you know nominations/Passenger pigeon and Template:Did you know nominations/Richard Wright (musician), and while Template:Did you know nominations/Oxford Street wasn't problematic per se, it wasn't too hard to find a better ALT. I see a few other people have commented as such on your talk, such as Template:Did you know nominations/Isaac Folorunso Adewole. I'm not sure what advice I can give other than "be creative!" (which sounds too much like buzzword bingo), but try thinking of hooks as newspaper headlines - something that will really grab the reader's attention.

Ritchie333: Thank you for bringing interesting articles up to GA. I also appreciate your efforts on finding better hooks. And of course, I will try to avoid nominating your GAs for DYK, if you prefer so. As for your suggestion to "be creative!", my answer is that I can only take what the article already offers. I am quite satisfied with my hooks in November, when four of them attracted >10,000 views, while only two other hooks seems to have reached that limit in November. December was less satisfactory, when of my hooks only Bicycle kick passed 10,000 views (in addition Frank Sinatra and Jean Sibelius attracted many readers, but that was due to the extra fuzz around their anniversaries).

I think you've misunderstood - I certainly wasn't proposing you avoid DYK nominating any articles I helped pass GAN, rather I just feel that occasions there are more attention grabbing or quirky things that can sometimes be pulled up. For now, provided I get the notification that the nominations are happening, I'll make a point of seeing what ALTs come to mind, and hopefully you'll see where I'm coming from after a few more examples. User:EEng might be worth reading, just for a chuckle. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 12:19, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
That's ok. Sometimes it is hard to find a particularly good hook, but if the article is important or interesting enough, and of good quality, I might still nominate it with a poorer/straightforward hook. Once nominated, the hook can be improved. Those who worked with the article might have something special in mind. Or the reviewer might request a more interesting hook, and hopefully the creator or others can help find a better hook. I haven't seen much from EEng lately, he used to contribute a lot to dyk hooks. He he, I remember he nearly killed one of my favourite hooks: ... that there ain't no more? (12,641 + 3,386). Oceanh (talk) 00:31, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
