Hey there and I'm sorry if I get anything wrong, I'm still new to this Talk Page thing. Is there anything special I have to keep in mind for a Did-You-Know nomination? Cheers and thank you for the nice words! @DannyS712: Ted52 (talk) 13:58, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

@Ted52: I couple of things. The biggest one is that you have 7 days from the 27th, when the draft was accepted, to nominate it for DYK. You can see the instructions for nominating at Template talk:Did you know#Instructions for nominators, but if you'd like any help writing a hook, etc just let me know. --DannyS712 (talk) 17:06, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Right, thank you for the explanation! I'll abstain from seeking a nomination, as I do not really see that mind boggling a thing that is interesting to anyone outside of this very specific niche of military historians. Once more, thank you! Ted52 (talk) 17:11, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ted52: in that case, is it okay with you if I nominate it for DYK later today? --DannyS712 (talk) 17:13, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Wow, I am honored. By all means, be my guest! I appreciate it! Ted52 (talk) 17:31, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ted52: Please see User:DannyS712/sandbox#DYK for my draft. Can you help me with the sourcing? Feel free to edit it --DannyS712 (talk) 20:26, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
@DannyS712: What do you think about that one? Your original DYK fact wasn't quite correct, as the unit wasn't as much disbanded as it was renamed, which isn't nearly as impressive. I instead went for the fact that they took only ten days to cut across their assigned operational area. Ted52 (talk) 14:13, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ted52: absolutely! The new one is more interesting, and also corrected, and has a reference! With your permission, I'm going to nominate this for DYK. Just let me know --DannyS712 (talk) 17:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Yes, I am totally on board with this. Now you got me invested and I hope it's good enough to be accepted, haha :) Ted52 (talk) 18:02, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ted52:  Done. See Template talk:Did you know#XIX Army Corps --DannyS712 (talk) 18:11, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

DYK nomination for XIX Army Corps[edit]

Ted, I see you have put a lot of work into the XIX Army Corps article. I want to help move it forward at Template:Did you know nominations/XIX Army Corps. I hope we can get this featured in DYK. Thanks in advance. Flibirigit (talk) 02:09, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@Flibirigit: Hey there! Thanks for the offer. They didn't really care for it the first time around, so I don't have much hope for the second time. But sure, sounds fun. Ted52 (talk) 05:19, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Ted, do you have any information you can add to the XIX Army Corps article? There are a couple sections without text that we should either complete or delete. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 21:29, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

DYK for XIX Army Corps[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 19 July 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article XIX Army Corps, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the XIX Army Corps represented Germany as it ceded Brest-Litovsk to the Soviet Union in the German–Soviet military parade (commanders pictured)? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/XIX Army Corps. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, XIX Army Corps), 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.

Great work, your first article. It's also lead hook (and will be until the next pictured one comes) on Portal:Germany. I haven't seen such a detailed ref list as your user page. Danke! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:29, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

@Amakuru: @Gerda Arendt: Cheers, glad to see it worked out in the end although I had already given up on it. I acquired some new books recently and I'll see if I can add new stuff to the article. The pressure is really on now. Ted52 (talk) 09:57, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Congratulations on the DYK, and keep up the good work - hopefully we'll see a lot more from you in the future!  — Amakuru (talk) 10:01, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Go ahead, don't feel pressed, please. I am sure it will make the stats ;) - I think you should proceed to Good article (GA, my initials). - Anyway, how do you feel about an infobox, such as XLVII Panzer Corps has? To make it a bit easier to know at a glance where to put it in time and place. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:05, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
@Gerda Arendt: Oof, I'm a noob, chief, I don't know how to do infoboxes. But I'll try, having one would probably be cool! I'll look into it, thanks for the tip. Ted52 (talk) 10:14, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
I can do it for you, just tested the waters. Some find infoboxes detestable ;) - What I did was finding more links to the article, my habit on DYK day (and I don't have a DYK today while I have one more days than not, tomorrow Rolf Riehm). I think we need some disambiguation page for all these XIX Army Corps (disambiguation) in different countries, - what do you think? Wir können auch deutsch sprechen, aber es sieht für andere etwas nach Geheimnis aus. So German only with translation, I suggest. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:29, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Whatever language works. That said, I initially even submitted my article under "XIX Army Corps (Germany)", and someone else moved it onto the one without any parentheses and made "XIX Army Corps (Germany)" into a redirect. It is not obvious to me why, but I must admit I didn't bother to check back with them. I have no issues with moving it back and creating a disambiguation page. Also, on another tab I'm editing the article right now and have set up an infobox. You can tell me what you think in a few minutes when it's all ironed out - so no need for you to do it yourself. Seems to work well enough. Ted52 (talk) 10:35, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. Article name: while I think that (Germany) or (Wehrmacht) would help, don't move today!! (Or we'll have to add statistics, and my math is bad.) I wouldn't even move tomorrow, because this 19th corps may be the primary topic for them. (It's usually JHunterJ who does such muves, saying "precise enough".) Just create the dab eventually, or I can do it. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:42, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
I won't, no worries. I'll let the veterans do it. Have a great day. Ted52 (talk) 10:46, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
(ec = edit conflict:) One more: Panzer Group 2 is bolded like a redirect, but isn't one. Two options: change the redirect to point here, or replace the bold name by a link. - After ec: understand, will see what I can do. - I saw that the name was changed when someone moved it from draft. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:50, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Disambiguation: I added it to XIX Corps. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:38, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Ted52, thanks for sticking with this nomination even though it took almost seven months to reach the front page. I know the original hook wasn't chosen, but I the alternate hook with the photo did get 7,601 page views yesterday. I hope you keep on writing! Flibirigit (talk) 04:05, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Here are the complete page view statistics for all six of the wikilinks: Flibirigit (talk) 04:16, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
I only looked at the main aricle, stats as I predicted ;) - I entered it there, and next time you can do it yourself! (Sorry for typos.) Two things you might want to do when finishing celebrating: add infoboxes to other related corps, and get rid of "more citations needed" tags in some of them, because I bet you have the citations to be added. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:45, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Anti-Comintern Pact, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Invasion of Manchuria (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

A bowl of strawberries for you![edit]

Erdbeerteller01.jpg Great job on the Bérard-Jordana Agreement article! It's rare to see relatively new users writing such great articles. TheAwesomeHwyh 00:41, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
