Instructions for nominators

edit

This page is for those nominations that have already been approved and are waiting to be promoted. If yours has been approved but has not yet been run on the main page, it should either be on this page or will soon be moved here, or already promoted to a Prep area or Queue ahead of an appearance on the main page.

If you wish to create a new nomination, please go to the Template talk:Did you know page; there are instructions there in a section similar to this one on how to nominate an article for DYK.

Frequently asked questions

edit

Backlogged?

edit

This page is often backlogged. As long as your submission is still on the page, it will stay there until someone promotes it to a preparation area. To alleviate this problem, if the approved page has more than 120 approved hooks, then sets will change twice per day (every 12 hours) instead of once per day (every 24 hours). When the backlog falls below 60 approved nominations set frequency returns to once a day.

Where is my hook?

edit

If you can't find the nomination you submitted to the nominations page, and it also isn't on this page, in most cases it means your article has been approved and is either in one of the prep areas, has been promoted from prep to a queue, or is on the main page.

If the nominated hook is in none of those places, then the nomination has probably been rejected. Such a rejection usually only occurs if it was at least a couple of weeks old and had unresolved issues for which any discussion had gone stale. If you think your nomination was unfairly rejected, you can query this on the DYK discussion page, but as a general rule such nominations will only be restored in exceptional circumstances.

Instructions for other editors

edit

How to promote an accepted hook

edit
  • See Wikipedia:Did you know/Preparation areas for full instructions.
  • In one window, open the DYK nomination subpage of the hook you would like to promote.
  • In another window, open the prep set you intend to add the hook to.
  • In the prep set...
    • Paste the hook into the hook area (be sure to not paste in that that)
    • Paste the credit information ({{DYKmake}} and/or {{DYKnom}}) into the credits area.
    • Add an edit summary, e.g., "Promoted [[Jane Fonda]]", preview, and save
  • Back on DYK nomination page...
    • change {{DYKsubpage to {{subst:DYKsubpage
    • change |passed= to |passed=yes
    • Add an edit summary, e.g., "Promoted original hook to Prep 3", preview, and save

How to remove a hook from the prep areas or queue

edit
  • Edit the prep area or queue where the hook is and remove the hook and the credits associated with it.
  • Go to the hook's nomination subpage (there should have been a link to it in the credits section).
    • View the edit history for that page
    • Go back to the last version before the edit where the hook was promoted, and revert to that version to make the nomination active again.
    • Add a new icon on the nomination subpage to cancel the previous tick and leave a comment after it explaining that the hook was removed from the prep area or queue, and why, so that later reviewers are aware of this issue.
  • Add a transclusion of the template back to the nominations page so that reviewers can see it. It goes under the date that it was first created/expanded/listed as a GA. You may need to add back the day header for that date if it had been removed from the nominations page.
  • If you removed the hook from a queue, it is best to either replace it with another hook from one of the prep areas, or to leave a message at WT:DYK asking someone else to do so.

Score: A Hockey Musical

  • Source: "A high-shticking breakaway", Rick Groen, The Globe and Mail ProQuest 749452350 "In 339 films from 59 counties, TIFF the vast festival is so pluralistic it entrances; in this one film from the host country, Score: A Hockey Musical is so Canadian it hurts."

  •   5× expansion of 4 March 2024‎ version completed from 1,888 characters to 20,402 and nominated on the same day. No copyvios detected (high confidence of violation due to direct quotes from reviews that have all been cited; AGF sources which can't go through Dup detector). Article is well-sourced. Main hook is 74 characters long (ALT1 is 113; ALT2 is 141); all three are under 200 character max. and are interesting. Refs 46 (verifying the main hook and ALT1), 54 (verifying ALT1), 66, 69, and 72 (verifying ALT2) are reliable sources. QPQ done. Looks good to go! —Bloom6132 (talk) 00:21, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
    • Reidgreg, I don't see the WP:SOHA connection to July 1, other than that it's just a Canada-related hook. Can you expand? ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 22:51, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
      • @AirshipJungleman29: I thought the connection is fairly strong and "sufficiently special" for the date: Multiple sources (five sources in the second paragraph of critical reception, and others elsewhere) talk about the film being chocked full of Canadiana and a "love letter" to Canada and Canada's national sport. Not just to hockey, but to hockey as Canada's national (winter) sport. – Reidgreg (talk) 01:03, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

  • Article moved to mainspace the day it was nominated. Article is long enough, well-cited to reliable sources, presentable, and with no policy issues detected. Hooks are formatted and of good length, hook facts cited in article, verified from sources, and interesting. QPQ verified. ALT0 is probably the more interesting of the two. I'm going to hold the tick for a bit while I think about other hooks (per nom). (I had something interesting about the Quebec (provincial) list, as voters outside the province were more likely to vote "no" on sovereignty.) BTW, would you like to request this for Canada Day? – Reidgreg (talk) 16:36, 28 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

  •   Article new enough and long enough. All sections well sourced and neutrally written. Hook one is verified. hook two and three are source, but we need citations directly after each in the article per DYK rules.--Kevmin § 16:19, 3 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • All three hooks now cited for DYK. Sources for each are neutral and hooks are accurate to sourcing. Work is needed on the article and hook wording for Alt2, which as it is right now is too close to the source The Oxtongue River flows through an ancient glacial spillway, which drained meltwaters from the Algonquin Highlands into glacial Lake Algonquin. for our policies.--Kevmin § 14:33, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • @Kevmin: I have rewritten the statement in the article, but struck out ALT2 here, because the new wording is too contrived IMO. -- P 1 9 9   18:49, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  •   Fixes look good. I'm not seeing any other close paraphrasing issues, so I do believe we are good to go.--Kevmin § 16:06, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • I understand that the hook is about a Canadian topic, but is it really so relevant to Canada that it needs to run on Canada Day? It would be nice of course but the connection to Canada Day seems rather tenuous at best. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 22:43, 4 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • @Narutolovehinata5: Well, if we're going to limit DYK hooks specifically to Canada Day, good luck getting even one! In fact, the 2 hooks in the holding area now are also not related to Canada Day, but just Canadian topics. As you say, "it would be nice of course"... -- P 1 9 9   12:45, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • I agree with P199 Canada related in general is better then no Canada Day hooks at all and looking like stuck up Americans.--Kevmin § 16:06, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I won't use that image per WP:DYKIMG. Just noting here that, while the hook should technically have an end-of-sentence citation, ALT0 is clearly a summary of the rest of that paragraph and the alternative's potentially a {{clump}}, so I'm minded to IAR - but is there a source available?--Launchballer 18:26, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

  - @Launchballer, Davest3r08, LunaEclipse, and Schwede66: I've removed this from the queue again, as it doesn't look like the issue of the video's copyright has been resolved yet. I think before this runs, we need to either (a) remove the video from the article, or (b) ascertain that there's a consensus somewhere that its copyright status is valid. As far as I could tell from the discussion last time, we were minded to reject the video's certification given that Lapitsky recorded it, not Karim. I'd think without definitive knowledge that Lapitsky's intention was to release it under that licence, and with it not even being under that licence any more anyway, this is pretty dubious...  — Amakuru (talk) 20:11, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

  •   New enough, long enough, well written, hook is verified and interesting, no plagiarism, QPQ done. I'm not entirely sure that the image is correctly licensed, but in any case it is not used with the hook. Dahn (talk) 09:29, 3 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

  @Juxlos, Dahn, and AirshipJungleman29: sorry for last minute pull, I checked this set earlier today but only just had access to a computer to edit... anyway, the issue is there seems to be a chronological issue with this hook, based on what's in the article. The hook begins with "that during a period of religious tensions...", with a link to Maluku sectarian conflict, which is described as being from 1999 to 2002, but then it says he was "selected as the mayor of Ambon, Indonesia, to placate local Christians", something which took place in 1996. So it can't have been during the Maluku conflict. The article goes on to say that this was during his tenure. If there was already tension in 1996, then we probably need to spell that out in the article to use it in the hook and also not link to a specific conflict that took place later. Cheers  — Amakuru (talk) 21:55, 16 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Amakuru: I suppose that will count as OR in the hook. Maybe we can go with a half-hook instead?

  Approving new hook, and sorry for not catching that. Dahn (talk) 03:45, 10 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Z1720: my only query would be whether placate is the best word here... The article text reads "to prevent alienating Christians in the city" which sounds quite benevolent and inclusive, whereas placate means "make (someone) less angry or hostile". Were the Christians angry and hostile before Tanasale's selection?  — Amakuru (talk) 07:53, 10 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Juxlos and Dahn: no worries, hope your trip went well. How's this? I've modified your proposal slightly to prevent the alienation of... rather than prevent alienating, it sounds slightly more grammatical. Other than that, this seems fine to me, Dahn can feedback if they approve this version.

Florida Hospital Oceanside

Catfurball (talk) 15:57, 8 May 2024 (UTC).Reply

General: Article is new enough and long enough
Policy: Article is sourced, neutral, and free of copyright problems
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
  • Cited:  
  • Interesting:  
QPQ: Done.

Overall:   * Ormond Beach should probably be wikilinked.

  • Source [3] says the renaming happened on May 15, 1998.
  • The Oct 1, 2000 renaming to Florida Hospital Oceanside does not appear in any of the three sources listed.[2][6][7] But it does appear in source [1]. The sentence "On October 1, 2000, Florida Hospital officially to over the management of Memorial Hospital Peninsula" lacks a verb and it's not clear what "Florida Hospital" refers to in this sentence. Did you mean Adventist Health System?
  • "To make the rehabilitation rooms on the second and third floors private." Dangling clause.
  • "In early March 2018, the rehabilitation facility at Florida Hospital Oceanside moved to Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center. This left the hospital with 17 acute-care beds." - This seems to misunderstand the source. Prior to Irma, there were already only 17 beds, then Irma damaged Oceanside to the point of closing and moving service to Memorial Medical Center. This source is also about the whole hospital, not just the rehabilitation facility.
  • "From the site AdventHealth was keeping 2.44 acres for future use by Florida State Road A1A." The article says "future endeavors", not for use by State Road A1A. That's a completely separate point.

Overall, I think the writer could do with some more careful reading of the sources to verify all claims in the article. I'm happy to pass it if the above points are addressed. I think HOOK1 should be used, considering the alleged crime did not lead to a conviction. Axem Titanium (talk) 17:51, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Axem Titanium: Ormond Beach is linked in the articles introduction. And I have made improvements that you suggested to the article. Catfurball (talk) 18:23, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I'm not asking you to withdraw the nomination; I'm asking you to address the issues I identified above, some of which you implemented and some of which you did not. The clause is still dangling. It's the whole hospital that closed, not just the rehabilitation facility. The 2.44 acres are not going to be used by Road A1A. These are specific and easily addressable issues.

Overall:   The provided source only gives one player's opinion, but the article cites a second opinion, allowing for "players". If the promoting admin feels that support for this is weak, there's the possibility of using something about the caps being required for use in practice despite third-party research not showing their efficacy.

  • @Crisco 1492: "Most positions" wouldn't really be appropriate. This is 7 of the 11 players on defense (cornerbacks and safeties not required based on article) and 6 of the 11 on offensive (quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs not required apparently). However, I recalled hearing that these were rolled out more since 2022. Based on this source, "the only positions not required to wear the caps are kickers, punters, quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs." – Still not enough to say "most" in my opinion. Hey man im josh (talk) 13:13, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • "Most positions" is based on the article: four in 2022, two in 2023, and two in 2024 (eight position groups) versus three not mandated. However, I'll be the first to admit that I have very little knowledge of or interest in football, hence my deferral to Soulbust.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 13:22, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
I would describe 'most' as 'more than half', so even six out of 11 would count. I'd include an 'as of' in the hook, but this should check out, although I'd like to hear from Soulbust before I promote this.--Launchballer 13:18, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
It just feels disingenuous to state most since at least a quarter of the players on the field at any given time wouldn't be required. The "three groups" are actually broken down as well, so it's actually four groups (safeties and cornerbacks were lumped in as defensive backs). Perhaps if there's a caveat about it being required of the players who make the most contact... but that gets too wordy. Where's the source on questioning the effectiveness? We'd want sourcing on that to consider including it given the stigma that goes along with questioning the usefulness of safety equipment in regards to the NFL.

Jerzy Kosinski: A Biography

Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:52, 20 May 2024 (UTC).Reply

  • Article is well sourced and neutral. It's new enough and long enough. QPQ looks to be underway at Template:Did you know nominations/American Colossus: Big Bill Tilden and the Creation of Modern Tennis. I agree that the hooks could be more interesting, and I think it's because it glosses over why this person is notable. (Both in the hook and in the article body.) Following the links the article about the man himself, there's probably a way to describe at least one aspect of what earned him coverage in reliable sources. Either his fiction, his personal life, or both. Shooterwalker (talk) 15:57, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • Shooterwalker, Sorry, my watchlist is not usable (too big), so I can see only pings. Do you have any suggestions for a more interesting hook? I am open to ideas, but as I said, I can't think of anything better, and I think the proposed hooks are "good enough" for DYK rules. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:51, 6 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
That's ok, Piotrus. I think it's hard to come up with this because the article doesn't really summarize the contents of the book. The article summarizes several reviews of the book, but we don't have the context of what they're reviewing.
Not to create too much more work, but would it be possible to get a short summary of the book in the contents section? It could be similar to the main Jerzy Kosinski article, plus even one sentence about the viewpoint/thesis of the author. If that's too much of a pain, plan B would be to scrape something from the review section. I can do my best to come up with something, but it would definitely be easier with more about the contents of the book. Shooterwalker (talk) 00:28, 7 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Shooterwalker, The problem is that the reviews do not, as far as I recall, provide any comprehensive information on the book's contents, which I assume is a biography of Kosinski, and the reviewers assume everyone will figure that out, I guess. They do not talk about chapter structure or such, just occasionally engage with some parts of his biography presented in the book the reviewer found interesting. And there is the issue of trying to make this article (and hook) be about the book and not about Kosinski's biography, which after all is a different article... --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:40, 7 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
That's okay. We can work without it. I think the hook would end up overlapping with aspects of the subject of the book, but let me see what I can come up with. Shooterwalker (talk) 15:01, 10 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Piotrus How about this:
  • ALT1a: ... that Jerzy Kosinski: A Biography described its subject as a "liar", and yet, one reviewer felt that the author's "studiously neutral position ends up sounding like an apologia for Kosinski".
It leaves out a lot, but hopefully refines the original idea to invite more curiosity. Shooterwalker (talk) 15:15, 10 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Shooterwalker, Sure, it's likely more interesting that what I came up with. I've no problem "adopting" it so you can approve it :) --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:04, 11 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Piotrus and Shooterwalker: An article comprising of one lead sentence, two single-sentence sections and one six paragraph Reception section comprising 92% of the article is a unmitigated WP:DYKCOMPLETE fail.--Launchballer 07:57, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Launchballer, Nope. The article pretty comprehensively covers the topic; there is not much else to write about it. I scoured the sources for anything relevant and it is already here. You can't call an article incomplete if there is no source covering other stuff, whatever that other stuff would be. Catalogue bibliographic information + reception is all that exists on this and all that we can therefore include. PS. That said, I'll expand the lead a bit more, since it is too short and did not cover the aforementioned reception. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:31, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
That's a bit better; I've knocked together the two short sections per MOS:OVERSECTION. I'd question whether merely stating the obvious is enough given "an article about a book that fails to summarize the book's contents [...] is likely to be rejected as insufficiently comprehensive", but I'll hear from another promoter. I also don't see how any of the hooks on this page meet WP:DYKINT; I can suggest the following: ALT2: ... that a New York Times reviewer felt that Jerzy Kosinski: A Biography was perhaps "written in unusual haste" despite being written five years after Kosinski's death?, but you'll need an end-of-sentence citation.--Launchballer 08:59, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Launchballer, Citation added but isn't repeated the same footnote in two consecutive sentences also against MoS? And tnx for the hook idea, it is fine and we can consider it as well. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 13:13, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
I know this might take a significant amount of research, but is it possible to skim the primary source, and offer some more detail about the book's contents? I imagine it overlaps with his actual life story, and we wouldn't need a full read to gather that. Reading the bio would be more to look for a few examples of the author's overall thesis and tone. A couple sentences in this article would do it. Shooterwalker (talk) 16:33, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

  •   New enough. Barely long enough prose length (but definitely long enough when the bridge list is included). Well written. Citations check out. (I used Google Translate for the Japanese sources.)

Overall:   The article was created on 22 May 2024. It has a readable prose size of 3211 characters. QPQ not yet done. WP:EARWIG shows now copyvios. More comments later.

Each paragraph has a source. Some parts of the lead and the section "Early life and education" sound very similar to the text in Moulton 1893, p. 722. This needs to be rewritten to avoid WP:CLOSEPARAPHRASE. I didn't check the rest of the article so please make sure that the problem is not found in other parts as well.

Hi @Phlsph7: thanks for your evaluation. Some parts of the lead and the section "Early life and education" sound very similar Because they are similar. I've used it as a source material, and "the article merely presents standard facts for a topic like this in standard sequence. The article does not copy any creative words or phrases, similes or metaphors." And a direct comparison with the Moulton source shows no violation. However, all of these becomes irrelevant here because the dictionary is in public domain and properly attributed in the source section. Regardless PD or not, the article does not closely paraphrase, rather presents standard facts in an orderly sequence. WP:LIMITED exists. Although redundant, I've now added a PD template as well in the ref section (which is usually done if it's a case of somewhat direct copy-paste, although this isn't the case here). Re the blurb's lentgh, while nominating I made sure they are under 200 characters. And yes shorter blurbs would be better. We may simply remove the "American educator" bits: ALT0b ... that Lois E. Trott (pictured) ran the first lodging house for homeless girls in America, providing shelter and support for over 1,000 girls annually, all without receiving any payment? ALT0c... that Lois E.

Let me know which one you prefer or if have your own opinion. Regards. X (talk) 07:24, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

The template should solve the close-paraphrase problem. I wasn't aware that the phrase "(pictured)" does not count towards the character limit (per WP:DYK200), which means that the original hooks pass the test. I think all that remains is the QPQ. Phlsph7 (talk) 07:55, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Xoak and Yue: It is short of the 5x expansion by my computation. Expansion start:2190 finish:9508. For a 5x expansion it should be 10950 characters. So 10950-9508=1442 characters short. I will see if editors are ok with an IAR exemption. Bruxton (talk) 18:56, 19 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Bruxton: I calculated based on prose size, per WP:DYK5X. I used the prose's word count, which was 296 words before my edits and 1501 words after my initial expansion. I now see that the criteria is characters and not words, which I would be short by 73 (1905 × 5 = 9525; 9525 − 9452 = 73). However, I would argue that, whether it be 73 by my calculation or 1442 by yours, the article has been significantly expanded in the spirit of the guideline. Yue🌙 20:03, 19 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Zwei Gesänge, Op. 1 (Schoenberg)

 
Schönberg, 1905 portrait
  • ... that the two songs of Op. 1 by Arnold Schönberg (pictured), "Abschied" (Farewell) and "Dank" (Thanks), were first performed in Vienna in 1900, with Zemlinsky at the piano, to a hostile reaction of the audience? Source: Gerlach
    • Reviewed: Alexandru Talex
    • Comment: We are in a Schönberg year. I couldn't believe his Op. 1 (not 12-tone yet, rather expressionist but no room for that in a hook) had no article. Planning to write more about text and music but busy the next few days. I believe we should picture him this year ;)

  •   Great work as always on these pieces. QPQ, article eligibility, source, and general presentation checks out. The hook seems like it could be condensed just a tad to ease readability; maybe something along the lines of "ALT1 ... the first public performance of two songs from Arnold Schoenberg's (pictured) Op. 1 was met with hostile reactions from the audience?" The picture is pretty nice! Generalissima (talk) (it/she) 23:23, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
    Thank you fort the review! Yes, it could be condensed, but what would be left had much in common with other pieces, and I find the position of pictured awkward. We should also not say that in Wikipedia voice when it was the wording of one critic, also the ridicule in the other's wording was perhaps a bit more unique. "two songs from" is correct but misleading, because the opus is exactly these two songs. Please give me some more days to write about text and music, both loaded with emotion which the titles suggest a bit, I think. (But Schönberg knew why he didn't call them simply lieder (songs) but - like Brahms sometimes - Gesänge, a more sophisticate form for which English has no word, or has it? Then we could use that.) - You could also listen. I did, see the Liviu Holender hook. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:39, 28 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
    Zemlinsky was not only the pianist, but Schönberg's teacher, the dedicatee of the songs, and to become his brother in law. Some will associate that with the name. He is also one of the composers whose music was banned by the Nazis, see the Holender hook. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:42, 28 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
I have to agree with Generalissima here. The original hook has too much detail and is thus too dense. The alternative wording proposed is direct to the point and makes the point of the hook clearer. Readers might get lost with the first hook, the second hook is much more understandable. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 03:43, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
While all this is true and not new: we celebrate 150 years of Schönberg and his music, and it's nothing new and no surprise that people react to it with hostility. I was surprised that his first works were songs. I was surprised that they were recorded by four of the greatest names singing and playing (but you may not know them so I dropped the idea of saying that). I was surprised to learn how close Zemlinsky was to him, not just teacher but friend and later family. - Did you listen? - The music of these two composers were banned by the Nazis, - we could do a bit more positive for it than saying the reaction was hostility, no? - On 29 May The Rite of Spring was premiered to an almost riot, DYK? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:23, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
As a compromise, can't we just go with Generalissima's wording? It basically says the same thing as the original hook except more concisely, and if the point is to promote Schoenberg, they still do it. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 09:28, 30 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
MONTENSEM is in the process of expanding. We'll see what material we'll get. This is a substantial composition, and just to say that the ignorant public didn't like it seems too little, on top of too unspecific.--Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:44, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
ALT2: ... that Alma Mahler described the two songs of Op. 1 by Schönberg (pictured) as "lavished with incredible pomp but without any concession to the ear that is accustomed to gentle melodies"? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:12, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  •   I still think Generalissima's wording is the more interesting option here compared to the quote so let's just go with that. I've taken the liberty of labeling that proposal as ALT1, and relabeling the new ALT1 as ALT2. I've verified ALT1 in the source and it's the one most likely to get readers to click on the article. The rest of the review is per Generalissima. With that said, this is without prejudice towards whatever new hooks come out of the expansion, and this does not preclude approval of said hooks depending on how they turn out. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 10:40, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
    We talk about a key composer's Opus one, a piece of significance. Can you - anybody - please explain to me why we would find a fact interesting that this piece shares with hundreds of other compositions?? Instead of saying something that is unique to this piece? - "lavished with incredible pomp but without any concession ..." - composing without any concession is what Schoenberg would do for life ;) - Alma Mahler, - I dropped the pipe in ALT2.

  •   Article looks good -- created within the window, long enough and generally in a good state. All statements are sourced and I can see no BLP or copyvio issues: the article does err on the positive side, and there might be some relevancy questions about e.g. the volume of his notes or his high-school disciplinary record, but none which represent serious problems or should prevent a DYK appearance. I do however think that His 2018 interview with Quincy Jones, in which the subject ... revealed an affair between Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor, went viral on social media needs a rephrase: revealed means that it was absolutely factual, whereas it seems that the claim is far more contentious and a serious matter to at least one living person. It hardly needs saying that ALT0 is the stronger hook: there's a WP:SELFPUB question-mark over it that would be solved by changing it to "once claimed to have..." or similar. UndercoverClassicist T·C 19:24, 31 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
    • @UndercoverClassicist: Thanks for the review! In regards to the Brando/Pryor sentence, let me know if the phrasing (alluded to an alleged affair) looks more solid — I also added another reference to substantiate the whole topic a bit. Also cut the suspension sentence, I was wavering about whether to include it. To couch the hook a little bit, how's this below?

QPQ: Done.

Overall:   My first time reviewing a dual-article nomination, and I appreciate the effort which must have gone into it!

Both articles moved to mainspace yesterday. QPQ is done. No plagiarism detected via Earwig. For both articles, length, referencing and image licensing are all good. For the insect, I think that the first paragraph of "Description" and of "Paleoenvironment" are both a bit long and ought to be split up a bit, and that "Paleoenvironment" should have at least one image - even the location map over at Klondike Mountain Formation would be really helpful. For the plant, you really should move the distribution images a couple of paragraphs down to avoid MOS:SANDWICH, and the last sentence of the lead is missing a period. Still, I would not hold up the nomination for those reasons alone.

To me, it is the hook which has multiple significant issues. It may not be grammatically correct (shouldn't it be named after the same place, not named from the same place?), it is really confusing and vague, as you have no way to tell what place is actually being referred to without clicking on both links, and I feel that a lot of readers would just say "So what?" when they see it as currently written. Suggested wording: Alt1 "...that extinct plants and damselflies from the Eocene were discovered and named after Republic in Washington?"

I also think that both articles should have a sentence which makes this connection between the two more explicit than the mere hatnote at the top. Lastly, you should at least add DOI and ISBN links to your DYK citations. Right now, there is no way to tell which citation refers to which fossil without going through the articles' references, and we should not have to do that. InformationToKnowledge (talk) 13:05, 31 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

InformationToKnowledge The hook as written is a play on the hemihomonym use of the genus name Republica for both a plant and an animal, but I like alt1 as well. I've added the dois for each source and a map to Republica weatbrooki, plus added splits in the Description and Paleoenvironment sections. A sentence calling out the hemihomonymy has been added to each article under classification. The image/map placement for Republics (plant) is more problematic though. I edit on a wide screen desktop monitor, and my view of the article has the maps already almost all the way down to the start of References. Ideally I was wanting a single map, but I wasn't able to find one I could make work for the West coast sites plus Alaska.--Kevmin § 18:37, 31 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Taking conciseness into account and a matching the details of the articles:

Alt2 "...that fossil plants (pictured) and damselflies from the Ypresian were named after Republic in Washington state?"

    • Comment: Hook: technically LACE was launched alongside another "Star Wars" satellite as a dual payload on the same rocket, however, LACE was deployed first so it still was the "first" satellite launched/deployed in the mission

AltHook: I would love to say that these were the longest booms *ever* deployed in space, but I haven't found any up-to-date sources or papers stating that.
AltHook2: "Star Wars" is the popular nickname for the Strategic Defense Initiative program

The article in general has a lot of red links and I think that, if there are no plans on creating those articles, they should be removed.

@Lullabying and Narutolovehinata5: Hi both. I based the original hook on a previous DYK of mine. I think it's also fair to say it's difficult to find an interesting fact about a grassroots football team that isn't also about football. However, if we prefer Naruto's suggestion, how about: ... that Gedling Town F.C.'s nickname "The Ferrymen" was inspired by the name of a pub located next to the team's stadium?

  •   Sampling/interpolating other people's tracks is a common practice, so I don't see anything unique/interesting about Eminem doing so here, especially when it isn't the first time he's done so in his career. Try coming up with something else. Page length and QPQ are all set, though. I also don't see any neutrality or copyright issues. SNUGGUMS (talk / edits) 23:06, 12 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
That hook was intended as an April Fools' joke, I was trying to suggest that Harry Houdini makes use of abracadabra - hooks on that day have a little more license to violate WP:EGG. ALT1: ... that Eminem promoted "Houdini" with a video in which David Blaine ate a glass of wine?--Launchballer 08:50, 13 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
It wasn't a funny joke, and while ALT1 is much more intriguing, that isn't supported by the given link. You'll just need to add a ref backing that up before we can move forward with this. SNUGGUMS (talk / edits) 12:12, 13 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
I just watched the video, and what actually happened was a little less dramatic: ref #4, which is what I'm using, says "downing a glass of wine and eating the glass". I've amended the article to that effect.--Launchballer 12:24, 13 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  That aligns quite well with the link used, so I'll now give my approval for ALT1. SNUGGUMS (talk / edits) 03:35, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Overall:   New enough, long enough, sourced and plagiarism free according to Earwig. The hook has been previously approved and everything seems to check out with me.

@Ornithoptera and Valereee: I find it concerning that both the source given for the hook and the source in the article for the marriage don't actually name the father/husband. I see it in [8], which is used in the articles, so that source should be replicated. Noting also that the relevant Bjarne Store-Jakobsen sentence has not been adapted to note the film has two stars.

Well, I'll complete the review since I've somewhat started, pretty much confirming the work of Ornithoptera, and I echo the appreciation of the quick work here. Since it's in the hook, also a quick note of appreciation to Ornithoptera for the detailed article on what seems quite an impactful person.
This article is new and long enough. It is adequately sourced. Running a few spotchecks I found no plagiarism (unless "a member of the Kainai First Nation" is not a common phrasing, which I feel it is but this is not an area I am highly versed in). I mentioned one sourcing quibble above, and noticed but did not mention the far too short lead, but Launchballer handled both of these. On the hook itself, I do not have access to two of the sources used across both articles, but it is backed up by the source I mentioned above which is already in both articles. Before approval, I note the Bjarne Store-Jakobsen article and the Esther Tailfeathers article frame the hook sentence a bit differently, either they are joint focuses or he is the main focus. The wikilinks to the Esther Tailfeathers article should also be adjusted on the Bjarne Store-Jakobsen article, as they don't seem to reflect the page creation. I would also like to know which source mentions the divorce, as I didn't find that in my spotchecks. Best, CMD (talk) 11:53, 6 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Hey, Chipmunkdavis, thanks for the review! I've asked Ornithoptera to take a look at those three sections, as they have seen the film while I don't have access to it. From the reviews it looks like we could possibly tweak to

ALT0a: ... that the "mythical love story" of Sami politician Bjarne Store-Jakobsen and Blackfoot physician Esther Tailfeathers is a focus of the 2014 film Bihttoš?

As the film deals not only with his and his wife's relationship but also with that of him and his daughter, and the film investigates how his experiences in the residential schools informed those relationships. Valereee (talk) 13:30, 6 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Works for me as an alt. It doesn't sound like the whole film is easily encapsulated in 200 characters, but the mythical love story aspect is hooky and prominent in the relevant sources. Waiting for Ornithoptera to confirm, I am copying over the relevant DYKmake coding here which should™️ ensure it gets copied over when this is promoted to my understanding. CMD (talk) 13:38, 6 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Hi @Chipmunkdavis:! Thank you for taking the time to go through the article. There are a few questions that are raised in this discussion that I have missed that I will do my best to answer. Stofjell's article Elsewheres of Healing: Trans-Indigenous Spaces in Elle-Máijá Apiniskim Tailfeathers' Bihttoš is the primary source in terms of mentioning the divorce ("Tailfeathers uses Bihttoš totell the story of her parents’ marriage and divorce against the backdrop of agrowing global Indigenous rights movement") and Elle-Maija's mother ("The interspersed archival photographs are well-lit, but the liveaction sequences, featuring Elle-Máijá, her Kainai mother Esther Tailfeathers") and father ("Among other things, it is also very much a film honoring her father (“Áhčči”), Bjarne Store-Jakobsen"). If I have missed any other questions that require addressing please let me know and I'll do my best to adjust accordingly! Ornithoptera (talk) 16:52, 6 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
  Thank you, and thanks all for the edits made to the articles. Go for ALT0a multi-hook then. Best, CMD (talk) 00:14, 7 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

  The DYK check tells me this article was created on June 7 and nominated a week later, which satisfies the seven-day requirement. The article has 4,408 characters of prose according to DYK check, well above the 1,500 needed. The Ringer source cited backs up the statement in the hook. Earwig states that a copyright violation is unlikely, and a quick check reveals the 27.0% rating to be from attributed quotes. Hook is very interesting. QPQ has not been done, and it's been a week since the nomination, but I like this hook so much that I'll donate my own QPQ for Katie Nimon under Template:Did you know nominations/Vanessa Weenink.
