New year, new decade, new page[edit]

To make the first tracks in this new-fallen snow Face-smile.svg ...

... I have another DYK nom I hope you can expedite for an upcoming anniversary: Murder of Artemus Ogletree, written with 5 January in mind. I probably should have let you know yesterday, but then again it was New Year's Eve here when I got it to that point. I don't think it's too late, although if we don't use the picture I can understand. Daniel Case (talk) 04:36, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Daniel Case, I don't enjoy being a Grinch at this season, but if you want to expedite this, I'd like to suggest that you provide another QPQ review, this time a complete one that addresses all of the DYK criteria, not just the three you listed in the review you did submit, which missed some issues that have since been noted. Length, time, and hook citation do not a full DYK review make, and it would really help if you would mention how article and hook(s) match up with all of the criteria in every review you do, including neutrality, copyvio/close paraphrasing, and so on. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 05:28, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
@BlueMoonset:  Done See Governors Island. Daniel Case (talk) 06:14, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Psalms[edit]

Wow, you simplified your page even more than I did ;) - I programmatically started the year with Psalm 103, and 85 still needs work. Happy 2020! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:16, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

To be more precise, Psalm 85 would need expansion today to qualify for DYK or not, and I'll start Psalm 31, also quite short, mentioned in a DYK nom, so not really needing a nom of its own. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:24, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

@Gerda Arendt: OK, I'll try later today. Yoninah (talk) 13:26, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, and we are "long enough" now. Just a question: what is Psalm of communal lament? - I can't see a source, so am reluctant to use it. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:56, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
@Gerda Arendt: all done on Psalm 85. I have no idea what a psalm of communal lament is, and have tagged that page for lack of sourcing. Yoninah (talk) 23:24, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
Great what you did! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:27, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Moisés Tuʻu Hereveri and Enrique Ika[edit]

Hello, can I request that Template:Did you know nominations/Moisés Tuʻu Hereveri and Enrique Ika be promoted on January 8 since it is the anniversary of Enrique Ika's proclamation as king? That is when the review is finalized. KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:40, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR: Sure. Just ask your reviewer to move it to the special occasions area when it's finalized. (Or ping me if that doesn't happen.) Best, Yoninah (talk) 21:20, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Happy New Year![edit]

Invitation to the 2020 WikiCup[edit]

Happy New Year, Happy New Decade and Happy New WikiCup! The competition began at the start of January and all article creators, expanders and improvers are welcome to take part. If you are interested in joining, you can add your name here and the judges will set up your submissions page. Creative editors like yourself seem to enjoy taking part, and many return year after year. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will move on to round 2. The judges for the WikiCup are Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email), Godot13 (talk · contribs · email), Vanamonde93 (talk · contribs · email) and Cwmhiraeth (talk) 07:39, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Muriel[edit]

It needs Youth in Bondage Yoninah. That was the whole point of the hook. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:32, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

@Philafrenzy: OK. Yoninah (talk) 00:08, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I wonder if it should go at the end? William Verbeck isn't particularly quirky. Philafrenzy (talk) 09:41, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
@Philafrenzy: you're right again. Yoninah (talk) 13:40, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
Imagine if I used my powers for evil... Philafrenzy (talk) 13:42, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Prep 6[edit]

I try not to show disappointment about DYK pic placement too often, but ... - The photo for Laura Aikin is not only artistically good, but also shows readers who don't know Zimmermann's Die Soldaten (who will be many I assume) a bit what that is, while the Mandarin duck, pretty as it is, just looks like any mandarin duck to me. Can Aikin come later, with image? Even the reviewer noticed. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:10, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

@Gerda Arendt: thanks for mentioning it, and you're right! I was also bothered by the darkness of the other woman's image, so I swapped the hooks between Preps 6 and 1. Yoninah (talk) 23:22, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
... same intro ... - now prep 1: I don't believe that the rather unspecific mushroom caps are a more interesting image than the artist who died. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:25, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
Gerda, that orange cast on the person's face is very weird. Yoninah (talk) 12:05, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
sorry, don't know "cast" in this context --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:17, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
"Cast: A slight trace of color; a tinge." Plainly: His face is orange. Yoninah (talk) 12:48, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

WikiProject A Cappella[edit]

Hi! I noticed you indicated interest in the a cappella wikiproject on the proposal, I just wanted to tell you it's been created, you can find it here. Thanks! Puddleglum 2.0 01:53, 8 January 2020 (UTC) Puddleglum 2.0 01:55, 8 January 2020 (UTC)

Your next DYK promotions[edit]

Yoninah, I was hoping that the next time you went to promote hooks, you'd take a look at the November 2 and 5 ones (Hazeltine and Cassington), since both were reviewed by Cwmhiraeth and she can't promote them. Thank you.

I've also just looked at the Template:Did you know nominations/Maria Krönung (Lautenbach) nomination, which was approved at the end of the year, and proposed an ALT3a that omits the rood loft, since I rather suspect Cwmhiraeth has been reluctant to promote ALT3 while the rood loft was in it, given HJHJ's "probable" as to whether it, too, was Gothic—I'd want something more definite than that before I promoted, too. I'm hoping the ALT3a version will do the trick. BlueMoonset (talk) 19:02, 10 January 2020 (UTC)

Is this ready?[edit]

Hi Yoninah, hope you're well. I have done the remaining changes and also some questions for you at the DYK for Wellacre, if you could reply there when you get the chance, would really appreciate it, thank you :) Steven (Editor) (talk) 01:07, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

@Steven (Editor): Hi, thanks for the reminder. I didn't have a computer for a few days. Yes, the page looks great. I have restored the tick and promoted the hook to Prep 5. Yoninah (talk) 11:35, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
Welcome and ohhhh I see, that's okay and thank you so much :) Steven (Editor) (talk) 20:50, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Francis Dzierozynski[edit]

FWIW, the character counter I used put it at 221. ⌚️ (talk) 17:49, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

@Trillfendi: how could that be? Were you counting in the source information at the end of the hook? Even counting it manually turns up a lower character count. I use Javascript. Best, Yoninah (talk) 18:09, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

MP image size[edit]

I am sure you meant well but this was too big. The general rule of thumb is 120 for portrait orientation, 140 for squarish, and 160 for landscape orientation. --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 13:21, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

@Coffeeandcrumbs: thanks for letting me know. I think I'll leave it to you and David Levy from now on! Yoninah (talk) 13:23, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
I was about to resize the image, but I noticed that we have actual photographs of the model mentioned in the hook. (It appears that the drawing was placed on the nomination page before the specific fact was selected.) I've switched to one of those images instead. —David Levy 13:27, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
@David Levy: yes, I agree that's much better. Yoninah (talk) 13:28, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

ITN recognition for John Altobelli[edit]

Ambox current red.svgOn 27 January 2020, In the news was updated with an item that involved the article John Altobelli, which you updated. If you know of another recently created or updated article suitable for inclusion in ITN, please suggest it on the candidates page. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 15:17, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

DYK for Psalm 85[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 28 January 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Psalm 85, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that a verse from Psalm 85 inspired artworks depicting the kiss of Justice and Peace (example shown)? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Psalm 85. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Psalm 85), 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.

 — Amakuru (talk) 12:01, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! - I expanded Psalm 31. Do you want to nominate? DYK check is not quite at 5 times, but you can argue that it counted in this version before expanding an unbulleted lone entry in Bibliographhy as prose, and the real prose at the time was 1.168 chars. - If that doesn't work, I could still expand further, but not right now. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:19, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for pushing me to improve this DYK hook, I think I would have taken the lazy path otherwise. --Muhandes (talk) 16:18, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Shivas Ha'amim[edit]

Hi Yoninah. I started to write an article about Shivas Ha'amim it was just a stub but it was suddenly moved to Draft:Seven Nations (Bible). Can you help out? Thanks, IZAK (talk) 00:37, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

@IZAK: I dropped a line on the editor's talk page. Yoninah (talk) 00:44, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! IZAK (talk) 00:53, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Ten tests of Abraham[edit]

Hi Yoninah. Thanks for your recent help. Could you help create a new article on the Ten tests of Abraham that would be informative. Thanks so much, IZAK (talk) 00:52, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Follow up comment[edit]

Hi Yoninah, just to say here without cluttering up the Psalms talk page with personal comments, I did not think you were intending to be condescending, just that that was how your words could be read. Thanks for your gracious response - tone is difficult to communicate in text! Cheers, Melcous (talk) 01:36, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Dev Dley[edit]

Yoninah, please stop by this nomination when you get the chance; the nominator has responded to your comments. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 02:50, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hallo, I have a question: is it correct that this DYK nomination is void since the article appeared already (as a link) on "in the news" section? Thanks! Alex2006 (talk) 12:46, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

(watching:) no, not correct, replied in the nom --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:59, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

DYK for Dirshu[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 9 February 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Dirshu, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that participants in one of Dirshu's intensive study programs are tested on their knowledge of all 2,711 pages of the Talmud at the end of the seven-and-a-half-year Daf Yomi cycle? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Dirshu. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Dirshu), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Template:Did you know nominations/Yeinot Bitan[edit]

Yoninah, Ynhockey has responded to the issues I raised with this nomination. I was wondering whether you could take another look at it, so that I would still be able to promote it. (Cwmhiraeth can't, so it might otherwise sit a while.) BlueMoonset (talk) 03:03, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Bessie Van Vorst[edit]

Yoninah, the nominator has made some text changes that may have dealt with some of the close paraphrasing, but I rather suspect (since you gave two examples) that only the ones you mentioned were dealt with. Also, there's a request for you to suggest other hooks, if the two new ones don't do the trick. Please stop by when you get the chance. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 07:15, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

DYK for John R. Countryman[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 14 February 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article John R. Countryman, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Shirley Temple's mother tried to get the "notably talented and cute" Johnnie Russell fired from the set of The Blue Bird so that he would not share screen time with her daughter? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/John R. Countryman. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, John R. Countryman), 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.

GA nomination of John R. Countryman[edit]

Yoninah, I noticed that you manually added this nomination to the WP:GAN page. In future, please don't do that. It didn't hurt anything, but the bot takes care of it, based on the GA nominee template that gets created when you subst the GAN template on the article's talk page. The bot runs every 20 minutes and regenerates the GAN page, so new nominations get listed pretty quickly. As a general rule, nominators and reviewers should never edit the GAN page. In this case, the bot updated the timestamp from what you'd originally done in your edit, since the GA nominee template is what controls the nomination entry on the GAN page. (The review information is based off the top section of the review page.) Probably more than you wanted to know; sorry about that! BlueMoonset (talk) 03:52, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

@BlueMoonset: thanks for the reminder. I guess I didn't read the rules through this time. Best, Yoninah (talk) 13:40, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/The Country Without a Post Office[edit]

Yoninah, has DTM's edits done the trick here, or are there still more issues? It would be nice to get this one moving again. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 18:41, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Croydon[edit]

The first hook is totally dull IMHO. Wouldn't Alt2 and 3 be better? Philafrenzy (talk) 07:41, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

@Philafrenzy: no problem, I substituted it. I was only going by the reviewer's comment. Yoninah (talk) 12:52, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
