Outstanding American by Choice[edit]

User:Gerda Arendt, User:Yoninah, User:Cwmhiraeth: I don't want to be accused of spreading pro-American propaganda, but I created Outstanding American by Choice a while back and I think it could be interesting to a "wide audience." I was wondering what it would take to turn it into a successful DYK. Would I need to add more referenced content to the paragraph at the top? Or flesh out the bios of each recipient?Zigzig20s (talk) 14:44, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

As you know, you will need about twice as much prose as you currently have (lists don't count), and every item sourced. Shouldn't be too hard, expanding example bios in the lead. Women Disobey ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:51, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
As far as I can see, it was created on June 21st so would not qualify under the newness rule. It is currently 753 B in length, and that would have to be expanded fivefold for it to qualify under the expansion rule. Only the current lead paragraph is counted for this purpose as bullet points don't count. It's up to you whether you think this achievable. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:42, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Re "interesting to a broad audience"—this is referring to the hook, not the article. Catchy hooks are what you're aiming for. Yoninah (talk) 18:43, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
User:Yoninah: Good point. I think I would highlight their diversity of origin and occupation in the hook.Zigzig20s (talk) 14:54, 23 July 2018 (UTC)


You've been contributing so much on difficult subjects that a break will probably be good, but we'll miss you. It has been good to work with you. I've been getting back to WP after a long trip and am deciding which topics to tackle. Parkwells (talk) 14:33, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Telfair Hodgson[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 19 August 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Telfair Hodgson, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Telfair Hodgson was the original financial backer and first managing editor of The Sewanee Review, the oldest continuously published literary quarterly in the United States? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Telfair Hodgson. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Telfair Hodgson), 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.
