DYK nomination of Lynching of Wilbur Little[edit]

Hiya I made a review at Template:Did you know nominations/Lynching of Wilbur Little. There's just one issue about sourcing then it's good to go. Mujinga (talk) 22:11, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

DYK for Rattlesnake Creek (Bronx)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 26 July 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Rattlesnake Creek (Bronx), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that New York City's Rattlesnake Creek was named after the rattlesnakes that once populated the Bronx? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Rattlesnake Creek (Bronx). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Rattlesnake Creek (Bronx)), 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.

Mr Little[edit]

I imagine you are watching the article about Mr Little's lynching carefully with a DYK pending, so you will have noted my reversion a few minutes ago and the discussion I have started on the talk page. What you are unlikely to have noticed is this discussion on my talk page.

I had not noticed until after I reverted the change that a DYK was imminent, and I have no horse in this race. I was simply the reviewer who approved the AFC draft. The reason I am showing this to you is because I imagine y9u ay wish to enter into the discussions (on the article talk page, my talk page seems like the wrong venue). I have no desire to take further part in them, having no horse in this race. I think the editor made the wrong edit for the right reasons. Fiddle Faddle 23:07, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Timtrent, Hmm, actually, no, I hadn't been watching it very closely. So, thanks for alerting me. Also, pinging BTV55 who deserves most of the credit as the original author. -- RoySmith (talk) 23:46, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

I have clipped three images of the April 5, 1919, edition of the Chicago Defender, showing the story and its placement on PG1. I do not own the copyright and cannot figure out how to present the images to satisfy the request of Gulbenk. BTV55 (talk) 09:47, 4 August 2020 (UTC) BTV55

DYK for Seton Falls Park[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 29 July 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Seton Falls Park, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Seton Falls Park went from being one of New York City's best parks to one of its worst in the span of two years? You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Seton Falls Park), 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.

Draft:Erbprinzliches Palais Dessau[edit]

Hi Roy - Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, with exception of the article referred to on the draft page, there is no in depth information on the heretidary palace of Dessau. I have contacted the local archive and local history club, who confirmed. The sites you can find on Google are either Postcards or short texts saying that the palace stood on the location where is now the Stadtpark.
