  • Comment: While I did edit the article, I wasn't a huge part in the expansion. All 3 of my edits were relatively minor: capitalizing the first letter of the short description, adding a line break so an image file wouldn't mess up a section heading and fixing a misspelling (contary to contrary). Basically, what I'm saying is that I don't think my inclusion is all that important among all of these other editors who contributed so much more to actual content expansion.

  • Comment I included all of the recent contributors. It takes a village to raise a child. Credited those who helped to improve it in the recent campaign! WP:DYK is not a Zero sum game. 7&6=thirteen () 17:01, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
    • Comment Okay, I'm okay with your explanation. I usually try to improve the TAFI if I'm around and I can, but I take no issue with recognizing every recent contributer; gradual improvements by numerous editors is one of the reasons I like TAFI so much. Clovermoss (talk) 17:21, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
I totally agree. WP:TAFI Having the community get together and collaborate! It's a Barn raising in the finest sense. 7&6=thirteen () 17:30, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Sorry folks, this article is an expansion of an existing article and does not meet DYK requirements in that it has not been expanded five-fold. It was 1060 characters before expansion and is currently 3637, so it has way to go! Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:14, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
User:Cwmhiraeth When I moninated it, it was much larger. Thereafter material was removed. I'll try to expand it. 7&6=thirteen () 13:36, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
It has been over three weeks with no work on expanding the article; the minimum expanded size is 5300 prose characters, which means an extra 1663 characters need to be added. It will be a month on 12 August, a week from now; if nothing has happened by then, this will be marked for closure. I hope we see some progress soon. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:42, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
  •   There have been no edits in the past nine days, and no additions for over a month. Marking for closure as unsuccessful; 5x expansion has not been achieved (only about 3.5x). BlueMoonset (talk) 14:43, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
