Divine Comedy illustrated by Botticelli DYK[edit]

Hi Yoninah. Sorry for disturbing you again, but this is a rather unusual case. The DYK has passed but I would like to ask your opinion regarding the picture of the DYK. It is the picture of a medieval manuscript and its quality is not great, although its importance is high. If you think it cannot be used as a DYK image, then perhaps, I may have to change the hook, or try to adjust the picture further. Please see the nom page. Any advice would be very welcome. Thank you again. Dr. K. 23:33, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

@Dr.K.: IMO the thumbnail image is very faint. We have so many other sharper and more colorful images that I personally wouldn't promote it. You could ask at WT:DYK to get other, more expert opinions. Best, Yoninah (talk) 19:22, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you Yoninah for your opinion. I may have to find another picture or leave it as is, to be promoted without a picture. Dr. K. 19:26, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Prep 1[edit]

Hello Yoniah, is there anyway you can bump Template:Did you know nominations/John Henry Wise to Prep 1 with the image? I just realize I got the date of the Super Bowl this year wrong. If not it is fine. Thanks.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 04:43, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

I came to your talk page to enquire how the John Henry Wise nomination got moved from its special occasion slot to today, but now I see why! On another matter, what do you think of Template:Did you know nominations/Al Zab with regards to neutrality? Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:15, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: the problem I see with the article is that it reads like a news report. For an article about a town, it doesn't say anything about the town. I'll post something on the nomination page. Yoninah (talk) 18:57, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Yoninah Easy fix, in this is just a copy and paste from the other editor's talk page. That's all any of these manual notifications are. The DYK Update bot has been dead for the last two updates. However, I went by the nominations template rather than whatever was on the queue, since I had nothing to do with the queue, and the bot died before it got around to distributing the credits. You don't show up as a co-editor on the nom template, and I don't know the background on why it was out there since May 2016. But hope this works for you. — Maile (talk) 19:49, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
@Maile66: I added myself to the co-creation credits after fixing up this nomination that was never transcluded. Thank you for taking care of this. Yoninah (talk) 20:02, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

No inclusion criteria specified for the inclusion of this non-free image in this specific article (AGAIN)[edit]

Template:Did you know nominations/Susanna Elm[edit]

Yoninah, this is now on the Nominations page under January 23. The reason it isn't on the Approved page any more is that it was promoted from there to Prep 2 despite your "/" being the most recent icon; so I restored it to Nominations after I pulled it from prep to avoid it happening again. (My feeling is that pulled nominations should go to the Nominations page anyway, since they should have an icon on them indicating that the nomination is not, at the moment, approved or eligible for promotion.) I imagine that, given a bit of time, a hook that satisfies everyone will be proposed and approved. BlueMoonset (talk) 07:58, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

@BlueMoonset: I thought you said in the WT:DYK announcement of the new approvals page that nominations that have been approved but still need work should stay on the approvals page. But it makes sense to return them to the nominations page. Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 09:41, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
No, that was EEng. I don't agree with him, but ultimately it's a consensus call, assuming we come to one. Softwarewise, they do stay: the bot doesn't move them back from Approved to Nominations (so they don't automatically get moved back), but once an approved hook is promoted and subsequently pulled, it needs to be added back somewhere; I personally think the Nominations page is best, since a manual step has to be done regardless. I also wouldn't object if someone decided to manually move hooks back once it's determined they need more work. BlueMoonset (talk) 19:26, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

ninas → NINAs[edit]

I've reverted your lowercasing of these in Al Hirschfeld. As I wrote in the edit summary,

These refer to the name "NINA" written all in capital letters. That's what most people know them as; lowercase "nina"/"ninas" just looks weird and wrong.

If you Google Hirschfeld NINAs, you'll see quite a few references to "NINAs", lots to "Ninas", and few if any to "ninas". Only the crossworders seem to use that form, and with their specialized meaning. I've kept (restored after the reversion) your link to wikt:nina, refining it to point to just the English sense (wikt:nina#English), and quoted the definition in an explanatory note. --Thnidu (talk) 05:04, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Yoninah, in an unfortunate bit of timing, your review of this nomination on February 16 was completed two hours after TempleM's most recent Wikipedia edit; it's been three and a half weeks since then, and there has been no response, nor is there likely to be. Did you want to try addressing the hook issues yourself, or find someone who is willing to try? If not, we're rapidly approaching the point where we'll need to give a deadline for settling the matter, and if it comes to that, marking it for closure for having an inadequately supported hook.

Thank you! Glad it's set. BlueMoonset (talk) 23:27, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Maymie[edit]

Your comment that it wasn't cited, makes it seem as if the file should not have qualified for DYK, i.e. "to qualify for DYK, the hook facts must be cited in the article". It never occurred to me that Madame would even be questioned, as in my part of the world, this is common knowledge. When she became Mrs. Aiken, it was cited, with a source that tied in all of her names. Madame Aiken is Mrs. Aiken. "Madam ... used here as the title for married/widowed women of social standing." [1], "madame (the equivalent of 'Mrs')" [2] This is why I find the venue so frustrating. What you see as an uncited claim, I see as one that was already adequately cited. I have zero problem with ownership or actual critique that adds something, but DYK just seems like too much nitpicking. That isn't aimed at you personally, it repeatedly occurs from multiple participants. I get that you are just trying to prevent problems later down the road and I appreciate that it isn't easy, but it is why I have pretty much stopped contributing to DYK.

Freeman family murders[edit]

Really. I am away all weekend and I come back to find you've deleted my article Freeman family murders. I spent hours developing it and putting in research. You don't need to delete the article do you? If there's copyright issues then tell me before deleting it so I can correct them. I don't see how this can be when I retrieved the perpetrators D.O.B.s from prison records that are not available in any news site or article, this is all original research. Please revert the article to how it was so I can correct the minor copyright issues rather than just disabling the page completely... The article was getting 100+ views a day https://tools.wmflabs.org/pageviews/?project=en.wikipedia.org&platform=all-access&agent=user&range=latest-20&pages=Freeman_family_murders. It is a well known case and I don't appreciate you just deleting it without giving me a chance to fix it. A serious topic like this that needs wiki coverage is not a good thing to just remove all of a sudden. Please revert it or allow me to and I'll fix it tomorrow. Inexpiable (talk) 21:01, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Well why can't I just change it now then on the normal page and problem solved? No need to go through all this is there. Tell me personally about the copyrighted stuff and I can fix it starting tomorrow. So can I delete the note and just start removing the copyright stuff? Inexpiable (talk) 21:56, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

@Inexpiable: you can try, but I'm not sure you're allowed to. I went through each source using this tool. Yoninah (talk) 21:57, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
@Yoninah: Ok thanks useful tool. 65%. Most of it is related to one particular sub section in the page which isn't even mainly about the murders. Lol come on man I can fix that in 10 minutes was all of this really necessary? Not having a go but maybe something to think about in the future, at least give a user a chance to change it when it's something so simple. Inexpiable (talk) 22:01, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
@Inexpiable: Sorry. It didn't look simple. And you didn't seem to be bothered by it when the DYK reviewer mentioned it. Yoninah (talk) 22:06, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
@Yoninah: I meant in terms of it being featured in DYK, not the copyright violations. I've made a start now and got it down from 65% to 49%. I don't know what's considered acceptable, I'm assuming this isn't good enough and it needs to be under 40? A lot of it is to do with quotes stated by the suspects however rather than what is written in the article. Surely quotes from the suspects themselves should not count as copyright issues? The earwig tool doesn't seem to pick up on that. Inexpiable (talk) 12:49, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
@Inexpiable: "Acceptable" means that word-by-word and sentence-by-sentence copying is not present. WP:LIMITED is allowed for things that cannot be described any other way, such as the murder instrument or the criminal sentencing. The previous version, however, copied whole paragraphs describing the murders verbatim from the sources. You are allowed to reprint short quotes, or put quotes around sentences you pull from a source, but the quoting should not be extensive. When I review an article for copyvios, I do not rely on the Earwigs percentage, but look at each source. Even something that gets a 15% on Earwigs can contain copyvios. Yoninah (talk) 13:48, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Really don't see how I'm meant to rephrase "the car he was driving ran out of gas in Missouri". We're under 50% now surely it's good enough? The other descriptions are good and factual so they can't really be reworded. Inexpiable (talk) 21:13, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Inexpiable No, they're copyvios. If you can't figure out how to reword things, ask at WP:GOCE. Yoninah (talk) 22:09, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Could I trouble you to have a look and give your two cents? Much appreciated. —Bloom6132 (talk) 15:25, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the review, Yoninah! Just one question – how did you get the 2,681 character count? When I said I increased the article to 2,733 characters, I wasn't trying to inflate the amount. That's the number I got after inputting javascript:importScript('User:Dr pda/prosesize.js'); getDocumentSize(); into my URL bar. Just wondering what tool/script you utilize and whether it'd be more accurate for me to use it in the future. Cheers! —Bloom6132 (talk) 13:01, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Women's History Month DYK hooks[edit]

Yoninah, I moved three more hooks into that section the other day, but I think that may end up being too many: the just-completed Prep 2 is led by one of the older ones, but none of the new three were selected. That leaves only one more set, Prep 3, which will run on March 31, before the month is over.

I can always move them back, though of course I'll wait until Prep 3 has been filled to do that. One of the hooks there was approved by Cwmhiraeth, so she won't be able to promote it if she's the one building Prep 3... Just thought you'd want to know. Thanks.

DYK for Bonfils Memorial Theatre[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 29 March 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Bonfils Memorial Theatre, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that President Dwight D. Eisenhower sent a congratulatory telegram upon the opening of the Bonfils Memorial Theatre in Denver? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Bonfils Memorial Theatre. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Bonfils Memorial Theatre), 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.
