Frequently asked questions

How do I write an interesting hook?

Successful hooks tend to have several traits. Most importantly, they share a surprising or intriguing fact. They give readers enough context to understand the hook, but leave enough out to make them want to learn more. They are written for a general audience who has no prior knowledge of or interest in the topic area. Lastly, they are concise, and do not attempt to cover multiple facts or present information about the subject beyond what's needed to understand the hook.

When will my nomination be reviewed?

This page is often backlogged. As long as your submission is still on the page, it will stay there until an editor reviews it. Since editors are encouraged to review the oldest submissions first, it may take several weeks until your submission is reviewed. In the meantime, please consider reviewing another submission (not your own) to help reduce the backlog (see instructions below).

Where is my hook?

If you can't find the nomination you submitted to this nominations page, it may have been approved and is on the approved nominations page waiting to be promoted. It could also have been added to one of the prep areas, 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 reviewers

Any editor who was not involved in writing/expanding or nominating an article may review it by checking to see that the article meets all the DYK criteria (long enough, new enough, no serious editorial or content issues) and the hook is cited. Editors may also alter the suggested hook to improve it, suggest new hooks, or even lend a hand and make edits to the article to which the hook applies so that the hook is supported and accurate. For a more detailed discussion of the DYK rules and review process see the supplementary guidelines and the WP:Did you know/Reviewing guide.

To post a comment or review on a DYK nomination, follow the steps outlined below:

  • Look through this page, Template talk:Did you know, to find a nomination you would like to comment on.
  • Click the "Review or comment" link at the top of the nomination. You will be taken to the nomination subpage.
  • The top of the page includes a list of the DYK criteria. Check the article to ensure it meets all the relevant criteria.
  • To indicate the result of the review (i.e., whether the nomination passes, fails, or needs some minor changes), leave a signed comment on the page. Please begin with one of the 5 review symbols that appear at the top of the edit screen, and then indicate all aspects of the article that you have reviewed; your comment should look something like the following:

    Article length and age are fine, no copyvio or plagiarism concerns, reliable sources are used. But the hook needs to be shortened.

    If you are the first person to comment on the nomination, there will be a line :* <!-- REPLACE THIS LINE TO WRITE FIRST COMMENT, KEEPING  :* --> showing you where you should put the comment.
  • Save the page.
  • After the nomination is approved, a bot will automatically list the nomination page on Template talk:Did you know/Approved.

If there is any problem or concern about a nomination, please consider notifying the nominator by placing {{subst:DYKproblem|Article|header=yes|sig=yes}} on the nominator's talk page.

Advanced procedures

How to promote an accepted hook

At-a-glance instructions on how to promote an approved hook to a prep area
Check list for nomination review completeness
  1. Select a hook from the approved nominations page that has one of these ticks at the bottom post: .
  2. Check to make sure basic review requirements were completed.
    • Any outstanding issue following needs to be addressed before promoting.
  3. Check the article history for any substantive changes since it was nominated or reviewed.
  4. Images for the lead slot must be freely licensed. Fair-use images are not permitted. Images loaded on Commons that appear on the Main Page are automatically protected by KrinkleBot.
  5. Hook must be stated in both the article and source (which must be cited at the end of the article sentence where stated).
  6. Hook should make sense grammatically.
  7. Try to vary subject matters within each prep area.
  8. Try to select a funny, quirky or otherwise upbeat hook for the last or bottom hook in the set.
Steps to add a hook to prep
  • In one tab, open the nomination page of the hook you want to promote.
  • In a second tab, open the prep set you intend to add the hook to.

Wanna skip all this fuss? Install WP:PSHAW instead! Does most of the heavy lifting for ya :)

  1. For hooks held for specific dates, refer to "Local update times" section on DYK Queue.
    • Completed Prep area number sets will be promoted by an administrator to corresponding Queue number.
  2. Copy and paste the hook into a chosen slot.
    • Make sure there's a space between ... and that, and a ? at the end.
    • Check that there's a bold link to the article.
  3. If it's the lead (first) hook, paste the image where indicated at the top of the template.
  4. Copy and paste ALL the credit information (the {{DYKmake}} and {{DYKnom}} templates) at the bottom
  5. Check your work in the prep's Preview mode.
    • At the bottom under "Credits", to the right of each article should have the link "View nom subpage" ; if not, a subpage parameter will need to be added to the DYKmake.
  6. Save the Prep page.
Closing the DYK nomination page
  1. At the upper left
    • Change {{DYKsubpage to {{subst:DYKsubpage
    • Change |passed= to |passed=yes
  2. At the bottom
    • Just above the line containing

      }}<!--Please do not write below this line or remove this line. Place comments above this line.-->

      insert a new, separate line containing one of the following:
      To [[T:DYK/P1|Prep 1]]
      To [[T:DYK/P2|Prep 2]]
      To [[T:DYK/P3|Prep 3]]
      To [[T:DYK/P4|Prep 4]]
      To [[T:DYK/P5|Prep 5]]
      To [[T:DYK/P6|Prep 6]]
      To [[T:DYK/P7|Prep 7]]
    • Also paste the same thing into the edit summary.
  3. Check in Preview mode. Make sure everything is against a pale blue background (nothing outside) and there are no stray characters, like }}, at the top or bottom.
  4. Save.

For more information, please see T:TDYK#How to promote an accepted hook.

Handy copy sources:

  • To [[T:DYK/P1|Prep 1]]
  • To [[T:DYK/P2|Prep 2]]
  • To [[T:DYK/P3|Prep 3]]
  • To [[T:DYK/P4|Prep 4]]
  • To [[T:DYK/P5|Prep 5]]
  • To [[T:DYK/P6|Prep 6]]
  • To [[T:DYK/P7|Prep 7]]

How to remove a rejected hook

  • Open the DYK nomination subpage of the hook you would like to remove. (It's best to wait several days after a reviewer has rejected the hook, just in case someone contests or the article undergoes a large change.)
  • In the window where the DYK nomination subpage is open, replace the line {{DYKsubpage with {{subst:DYKsubpage, and replace |passed= with |passed=no. Then save the page. This has the effect of wrapping up the discussion on the DYK nomination subpage in a blue archive box and stating that the nomination was unsuccessful, as well as adding the nomination to a category for archival purposes.

How to remove a hook from the prep areas or queue

  • 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 this 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 this 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.

How to move a nomination subpage to a new name

  • Don't; it should not ever be necessary, and will break some links which will later need to be repaired. Even if you change the title of the article, you don't need to move the nomination page.

  • @Blaylockjam10: I studied the source and cannot find the hook. Can you lead me to it? Bruxton (talk) 02:56, 1 May 2024 (UTC)
@Bruxton: It’s under “Regular Season (Complete Stats)”. It looks like it may only be visible on a computer. Blaylockjam10 (talk) 11:33, 2 May 2024 (UTC)
Looks like I need a premium membership to view. I will leave this to another reviewer. Bruxton (talk) 04:02, 4 May 2024 (UTC)
If "S TEAM LEAGUE GP GD GAA SV% GA SV SO W-L-T TOI" and "2022-23 Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg KHL 1 4 - - - - 0 0-0-1 0:00" means what I think it means, then a) you don't need a premium membership to view and b) I think the hook checks out with the source, depending on what "W-L-T" means, although I haven't yet looked at the article. I'm a bit worried about the phrases "submit stats/facts" and "edit profile" I found on the source - what makes it reliable?--Launchballer 11:57, 4 May 2024 (UTC)
Launchballer I saw the same, which made me feel like it was a contributor site. Honestly I was just lost on that page. I think W is win L is loss and T is tie. It is a clever hook which drew me to the nomination, but then I found myself lost for a half hour clicking on pull down menus until I got to a paywall. @BeanieFan11: may be able to help. Bruxton (talk) 14:55, 4 May 2024 (UTC)
I'm not seeing the TOI part of the Elite Prospects link but based on how he played in the game that would make sense. NHL says that he was the goaltender for only the shootout portion in his only game, which would mean that he "officially" had zero minutes since the shootout isn't timed. (Also, I've come across Elite Prospects a number of times – they seem pretty reliable (don't think I've seen an incorrect stat, although I've only used them in writing ~10 hockey articles) and seem to have a staff – also cited ~20,000 times). I'd say it's good for approving as long as the article itself is fine. BeanieFan11 (talk) 16:08, 4 May 2024 (UTC)
  •   Blaylockjam10 I located the minutes played after being guided. Earwig determined that there is some minor WP:CLOP which needs to be addressed. Also probably not a DYK issue, but consider that we probably do not need a section for three words - it should be combined somewhere. Also the lead should introduce/summarize more of the article; right now it is a single sentence. The hook is interesting and the article is neutral with the correct inline citations. Created on April 19 nominated April 26 so the article is new enough and with 2344 the article is long enough. Bruxton (talk) 18:52, 4 May 2024 (UTC)
  •   Sorry for the delay. Earwig is at 16.7% - clop was addressed. Personal life was expanded a bit more and the lead is now two sentences. Two sentences are close to a source, but I think we have addressed enough for a pass. Might make a good   This might make a good quirky hook.(?) Bruxton (talk) 18:57, 30 May 2024 (UTC)
@Blaylockjam10 and Bruxton: As written this article would deserve {{prose}} and {{subsections}}, and single-sentence WP:PARAGRAPHs should be avoided - could this be remedied?--Launchballer 14:28, 1 June 2024 (UTC)
Its not written in list format? I also don't see the need of having a bunch of subsections in this brief article and how one would appropriately do it? BeanieFan11 (talk) 14:55, 1 June 2024 (UTC)
It reads like one, see WP:PROSELINE.--Launchballer 15:04, 1 June 2024 (UTC)
@Launchballer and BeanieFan11: I agree that the article could be improved by combining sentences and I usually push for MOS changes, but many are not required by WP:DYKCRIT. Regarding sections, we sometimes feature single paragraph articles at DYK. I will go through it and also ping AirshipJungleman29 to see if they have an opinion. Bruxton (talk) 20:12, 1 June 2024 (UTC)
Articles should be free from dispute tags. If an article deserves one, it can't run per WP:DYKTAG.--Launchballer 20:19, 1 June 2024 (UTC)
None of {{prose}}, {{subsections}} or {{too many sections}} are listed at Wikipedia:Template index/Disputes; I think Bruxton's alterations are sufficient. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 20:21, 1 June 2024 (UTC)
My concern has been resolved.--Launchballer 20:55, 1 June 2024 (UTC)

@Blaylockjam10, Bruxton, and AirshipJungleman29:   I'm not quite happy with the sourcing on the hook and article here. A fair amount of this article is sourced to this non-independent source and this stat block, both of which feel very less-than-DUE. theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 09:21, 8 June 2024 (UTC)

  • I think his statistics and how he performed with his different teams is absolutely worth being mentioned in the article – whether or not its sourced to NHL.com. If we remove everything sourced to those we'd end up with only random portions of text without an accurate summary of his career – which I don't think would make sense. BeanieFan11 (talk) 20:34, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
    • If you're right that the secondary independent sources don't come near giving a cohesive picture of the subject, I would honestly question how they could confer notability. theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 20:42, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
    • From a source analysis, sources 1 and 7 are non-independent, while sources 2–6 and 8 (5 is borderline) don't provide significant coverage. I've notability-tagged the article. theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 20:46, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
      • I don't think there's a question of notability – he's an NHL goaltender and there's a decent amount of coverage, e.g. this – what I am saying is that by using solely news sources we wouldn't get nearly as good a picture of his career as we would by also using sources such as NHL.com, which help paint the fuller picture. BeanieFan11 (talk) 21:35, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
        • Fair enough, but I think that we can't reasonably call this article a pass unless we use as many of the SIRS as are helpful and then use the non-independent sources to fill in the gaps where we have to. theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 22:20, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
          • What exactly do you mean by SIRS? Blaylockjam10 (talk) 20:28, 9 June 2024 (UTC)
            • secondary, independent, reliable sources :) theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 20:40, 9 June 2024 (UTC)

  There is a problem with this - that many readers (myself included) will not have a clue as to what a 'shootout loss' is. Is there at least somewhere on WP which can prode a useful link for this? I couldn't find one. Surely a DYK should be at least widely comprehensible as it stands.Smerus (talk) 13:52, 18 June 2024 (UTC)

    • @Soulbust: pinging. BorgQueen (talk) 20:20, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
      • @BorgQueen: didn't see this notif for some reason. I personally don't find the financials/monetary aspect of these sorts of things interesting at all. I thought ALT1 was kinda conceptually funny, the fact that the team was still so freshly signed when they won the tournament that DZ hadn't even given them player bios on their website yet. Idk. I'll see what I can do, but will be adding the $500,000 win into the actual article as that info is currently not included. Soulbust (talk) 01:44, 21 May 2024 (UTC)
  • @BorgQueen: Does the above satisfy your concerns? If not, are there any other aspects that you think Soulbust can create a hook from? Z1720 (talk) 00:31, 10 June 2024 (UTC)
  • @Z1720: I'd like another reviewer to take a look. BorgQueen (talk) 00:49, 10 June 2024 (UTC)

  Per the above request. Z1720 (talk) 00:51, 10 June 2024 (UTC)

What about
  • ALT2: ... that when DarkZero contracted Xynew, his teammates highlighted his "communication skills and game brain", which they deemed unusual for a controller player?
(Hook) review still needed, I just suggested another hook. And maybe the hook could be shortened a bit. As a side note, I don't like the phrase "Covid-19 scare", as it's not clear to me that he tested positive – I read it as if there had been some sort of "panic" around him. (But maybe that's my non-native English misreading it.) –LordPeterII (talk) 13:24, 13 June 2024 (UTC)
Used "scare" as it is what the Dot Esports source referred to it as. If I recall correctly, in my research of sourcing for the article, I came across an interview of the player where he mentions that he received multiple tests for it: one positive, one negative, and as a result of that had to miss playing. Soulbust (talk) 04:04, 14 June 2024 (UTC)
  @Soulbust: ALT2 checks out, though should probably be unpiped for context. I'm happy-ish with scare, however it might be worth adding your multiple tests explanation to the article. "the organization has not fielded a Valorant roster since" is unsourced and could date, so I recommend yeeting at least that clause, possibly the whole sentence.--Launchballer 11:39, 24 June 2024 (UTC)
@Launchballer: Fixed the COVID-19 info to include multiple test info, removed "scare" from its wording. Also yes the Valorant info did date. Another editor added info of their very recent re-entrance into the Valorant scene, so I just right now removed the "not fielded since" part. Soulbust (talk) 19:02, 24 June 2024 (UTC)

  •   What a ride that article was. QPQ not needed. Earwig has a high score for copyvio detection, but that's entirely due to Messi's paragraph-long statement in the "Departure and Japan trip" section, which has an inline citation to the flagged source. Referencing is adequate and length/newness criteria fulfilled. Hook is definitely interesting and cited in source, not cited inline as exact phrasing but separately so. Good to go. Juxlos (talk) 10:13, 1 May 2024 (UTC)
    •   @Cypp0847 and Juxlos: I have tagged the article for copyediting, as there are grammar-related issues throughout the article (tenses, for instance, are very often incorrect). This needs to be resolved before a DYK run. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 01:39, 9 May 2024 (UTC)

      • Okay, finished my copyedit. I removed the flag icons per MOS:FLAG and shortened one of the really long quotations. The infobox image, while taken from a video released under CC, contains elements which are definitely under copyright. I suggest taking a low-resolution version (100k pixels) and moving it to en.wiki with a fair use rationale, and using that.

    •   New reviewer needed to check the above hook (combining Luiysia's proposed rewrite with Femke's request as ALT1a) and to take a look at the Globalize tag in weight fraud to see whether it's an issue that needs to be addressed prior to approval. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:51, 7 June 2024 (UTC)
    • I also just realized that Luiysia's review refers to "article", singular, but there are two articles in this nomination, weight fraud and meat diaper. The new reviewer should check both articles rather than just one, unless Luiysia can confirm which article was reviewed. Thanks again. BlueMoonset (talk) 02:00, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

  • Adequate sourcing:   - Meat diaper is fine, but the lead section of Weight fraud contains details not cited anywhere in the article, e.g. the sentence about self-checkout machines. Weight fraud also needs a citation for the first paragraph under "Food fraud".
  • Neutral:   - Globalise tag is present in Weight fraud.
  • Free of copyright violations, plagiarism, and close paraphrasing:  
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
  • Cited:  
  • Interesting:  
QPQ: None required.

Overall:   @GobsPint: Checking WP:DYKTAG only dispute tags are an issue, and the globalise template does not seem to fall into this category as described by WP:DT, instead coming under Wikipedia:Template_index/Cleanup#Neutrality_and_factual_accuracy, so I don't think that should block the nomination, although others may disagree. Earwig is not working for me right now but spot checking sources in articles showed no concerns. Only concern is with the uncited sections of Weight fraud. CSJJ104 (talk) 01:33, 13 June 2024 (UTC)

Sorry, I just rechecked WP:NPOV and see that the globalise tag is defininitely something which needs to be fixed. I have updated my review above. I did find some possible sources though, not sure if these are of any help in adding examples from outside the US, specifically Bangladesh and Norwegian fisheries. I will let you know of any others I may find. Again, sorry for the confusion in my review. CSJJ104 (talk) 01:57, 13 June 2024 (UTC)

I guess that's okay too, but do you have any additional suggestions? Article itself seems long enough and new enough at least. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 09:08, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
Not from this article, no. This is in itself a hook that has "international appeal" given it's a Hollywood debut for a Filipino actress, which is a rarity. Pseud 14 (talk) 15:27, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
  •   The article is new enough, long enough, is free of close paraphrasing, and is adequately sources. ALT1 (the only hook under consideration) is verified in the source and mentioned in the article. A QPQ ahs been done. I'm still not 100% sure if ALT1 works out in terms of interest or if additional hooks are needed, so I'm passing judgement on ALT1 to a third-party editor. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 09:02, 21 May 2024 (UTC)
    • I would argue that there's nothing too unusual about a Filipino actress in Hollywood; the fact that she's not American is something, but foreign actors aren't exactly, well, foreign. (signed, an Angeleno, for what it's worth) theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 02:40, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
I'd probably have passed ALT1, but after reading Liza Soberano and this, I can suggest ALT2: ... that Liza Soberano (pictured), an actress described by media publications as among the most beautiful Filipino actresses of her generation, played an unattractive exchange student in Just the Way You Are? - but you would need to add that bit from Liza Soberano.--Launchballer 09:29, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion Launchballer, I am unsure if adding the latter would work because it takes context out of the main article, instead of the nominated article for DYK, and honestly, I see little value of adding that bit on her roles and awards (as those publications are mostly listicles and generally don't count as awards). Having said that, Alt2 may be another iteration of Alt0 - which is a just another role she played. Thoughts? Pseud 14 (talk) 20:57, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
I'd have thought the juxtaposition of a beautiful actress playing an unattractive exchange student would be interesting.--Launchballer 08:24, 27 May 2024 (UTC)
  •   List is new, long, well sourced, neutral, and copyvio-free, as well as supported with a licensed image (which I doubt will make it to the Main Page). I concur with Narutolovehinata5 that none of the hooks is interesting; on ALT1, for instance, boldlinked article refers to the subject's acting credits, among others, yet only her so-called Hollywood breakthrough is singled out here, which makes her domestic roles inadequate in a way. This can be an interesting hook for a Lisa Frankenstein DYK, but certainly not for this one. Although QPQ has been given, another compelling hook is needed. Nineteen Ninety-Four guy (talk) 07:44, 27 May 2024 (UTC)
I can suggest some variant of "that Liza Soberano started her career as a teenager".--Launchballer 08:24, 27 May 2024 (UTC)

  • Alt3 seems interesting, but could use some tweaks,
Alt3a: ... that Liza Soberano's early acting roles include playing the third wheel in romance films? Source: [2]
  • If this is OK with you, just add an end-of-sentence citations on it so I can redirect this to another reviewer. Nineteen Ninety-Four guy (talk) 21:43, 27 May 2024 (UTC)

  ALT3a is short enough, sourced, and interesting. Let's roll.--Launchballer 23:11, 27 May 2024 (UTC)
  I do apologize for the comment given that the nomination has already been approved, but I'm not very confident about ALT3a to be honest. If you're a Filipino (Soberano is a big name over here), ALT3a might be surprising especially for people who may not have followed her career as closely as super fans. However, to me at least, ALT3a is a bit reliant on knowing how big Soberano is, and an international reader might not get that context. Honestly I do think ALT2 was actually a better option. Yes it was a role hook, a kind of hook I have mixed opinions about, but the contrast does seem to catch attention and isn't as reliant on knowing about Philippine entertainment as much. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 02:09, 28 May 2024 (UTC)
The argument doesn't make sense at all. You're looking from the lens of someone who knows Soberano and not from the POV of an unfamiliar reader. If you're a Filipino (Soberano is a big name over here), ALT3a might be surprising especially for people who may not have followed her career - this is exactly what the hook is for–to peak the interest of non-familiar/somewhat familiar readers about the article. This is not to cater to someone who already knows her or to "superfans", which makes your justification completely ironic, since your comment is from the perspective of someone who knows the subject. Having said that, the article is about her "roles and awards" and I don't see the relevance of incorporating her "perceived beauty" in it, which makes Alt2 a no go for me. The hook is supposed to be about her acting career not Soberano in general (or whether she is considered desirable or her appearance in a particular role). It should be fact about something interesting that she had done as an actress and I trust that the non-Filipino reviewers who have weighed in seem to think the latter alternative works. Pseud 14 (talk) 12:36, 28 May 2024 (UTC)

@Narutolovehinata5 and Launchballer: To avoid lengthy discussions about which hooks are the most interesting, can someone indicate which hooks above are approved (ie pass the other criteria of DYK) and indicate their preference of interestingness? If there are multiple approved hooks, the promoter can decide which hook is the most interesting after reading the arguments above. If anyone has other hooks they would like to propose, they can do so below. Z1720 (talk) 00:39, 10 June 2024 (UTC)

Right now the only approved hook is ALT3a. I thought ALT2 was a better option, but the nominator objected to it and in any case it's not supported in the article. The issue I had with ALT3a is that it's somewhat reliant on knowing that Soberano is currently known for doing leading roles but she started out doing third-wheel roles. That might be interesting to fans of her or those familiar with Filipino entertainment, but without that particular context the post isn't as obvious or as surprising. Having said that, despite the nom's comment above I still have reservations about ALT3a and would suggest not promoting or re-approving it without alternative wordings to ALT3a and/or additional hook proposals being proposed (this includes addressing the issue with ALT2). I'm not necessarily opposed to ALT3a's hook fact but I'm not a fan of it as currently worded. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 01:16, 10 June 2024 (UTC)

Turns out I am missing something, a ping to @BeanieFan11:.--Launchballer 19:40, 11 June 2024 (UTC)
@Launchballer: I'm guessing you're referring to the part that reads having no offers to play college football? I think you're right – I had initially wrote that after reading Two words stand out on Jarrett’s recruiting profile: No interest. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound high schooler held no Division I offers, no Division II offers, no Division III offers – but I forgot that community colleges (like Ellsworth) can also offer athletic scholarships (meant by 'offers'). Maybe it could be changed to having no offers to play NCAA college football? Or something else? BeanieFan11 (talk) 23:21, 11 June 2024 (UTC)

    You can't have "recently" in a hook per WP:DYKHOOK, the hook's fact must not be likely to change. In theory, you could include "who died in April 2024" to get around this. However, I would expect a more merciless prepbuilder to take it out per WP:DYKTRIM.--Launchballer 16:26, 20 June 2024 (UTC)

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

    Overall:   @Makeandtoss: The article is new enough, having been created May 5 and nominated May 9. At 5,139 characters it's long enough. Every paragraph and quotation is sourced, and I was able to verify the hook information and spot-checked throughout the article. The article is written neutrally, avoiding sensationalism and properly attributing noteworthy subjective reactions and assessments to institutions, individuals, communities, etc. as appropriate. The hook is interesting; there are plenty of doctors who advise sports teams (sports medicine, after all), even national sports teams, but I don't generally expect someone so prominent to die in prison. What brought on this circumstance, a reader is prompted to wonder—and thus was I drawn to this hook and article, and so also I expect a main page reader will be drawn.

    However, before approving, there is some close paraphrasing I noticed using Earwig that I'd like to see resolved:

    From the article: Al-Bursh's wife and six children also refused to move south and instead took shelter in one of the UNRWA schools in the northern Gaza Strip: This strikes me as too close of a paraphrase of His wife and six children didn't leave either, and they are currently taking shelter in one of the UNRWA schools in the north of the Gaza Strip, in The National News.

    From the article: injured while at the Indonesian Hospital while he was in the operating room: This seems too close of a paraphrase of injured while we were at the Indonesian Hospital as Israeli forces surrounded us for four days, while he was in the operating room, in The National News.

    If these could be rephrased or reorganized to be more distantly phrased, that would be ideal. Otherwise, I'm ready to approve the nomination. Hydrangeans (she/her | talk | edits) 00:12, 21 June 2024 (UTC)

    @Hydrangeans: Thanks for the detailed review. I have rephrase the parts you mentioned, but self-reverted in case of 1RR situation, if you could revert me then this issue would be solved.

    Also, as you said, his torture was the cause of death, and should be mentioned uncontroversially since this is what all RS had reported on. I would suggest this: ALT2b: that doctor Adnan al-Bursh, who died from torture in Israeli prison in April 2024, had served as an adviser to the Palestine national football team? I prefer ALT2b but wouldn't object to ALT2a if there is more agreement to it. Makeandtoss (talk) 13:56, 21 June 2024 (UTC)

    @Makeandtoss: Thanks for the rewrite of those sentences. I performed the requested revert of your self-revert (I'll admit that this particular intersection of rules is arcane to me and I don't entirely understand). I didn't bring up torture being the cause of death, and I think putting it in the hook is to your detriment; it removes questions and curiosity by providing too many answers up front. I also think it might read better if reordered. The most surprising information is his passing in prison, but you place that before him being adviser to the national football team, making it so that rhetorically the hook seems to be trying to make the latter the 'punch' (or the surprising bit) even though it's not as surprising or interesting. I realize we've gone through a couple drafts of this hook already, but would it be possible to rewrite the hook to set up who he is first and then finish the hook with what happened? Hydrangeans (she/her | talk | edits) 16:10, 21 June 2024 (UTC)
    Good points, then ALT2c should be GTG: that orthopedic surgeon Adnan al-Bursh had also served as an advisor to the Palestine national football team before dying in Israeli prison in April 2024?Makeandtoss (talk) 16:14, 21 June 2024 (UTC)
    @Makeandtoss: It would need to be 'in an Israeli prison'. Hydrangeans (she/her | talk | edits) 16:53, 24 June 2024 (UTC)

Long enough, new enough. "Great bulls of fire" is not in the source and the other two ALTs feel a bit object-does-its-jobby. In addition, "Toro de fuego (Ayerbe) [es] (Huesca) or Fuente de Pedro Naharro (Cuenca). Depending on the location, carts or frames carried by one or more people, with pyrotechnics, are used." needs a source. Given that Evrik's block will take this nomination well past the two month mark (and there's an argument, given that nominations could become problematic at any point and can be closed after a week without action, that any user blocked for more than a week should forfeit their active nominations anyway) I am rejecting this; any other editor is free to adopt this nomination, else Evrik is free to renominate once this is a GA.--Launchballer 12:34, 24 June 2024 (UTC)

    • Comment: Regarding ALT2/ALT3: the sources say that it was "Pyongyang Radio". That sounds like a government/state-run program, especially since, if I remember right, the only media in North Korea is state-owned. Let me know about your thoughts on whether it is correct to describe it as the NK government/state making the claims.

    • I highly doubt his notability based off a previous AfD discussion, but since the article expanded a lot, I think it is worth a shot. Unfortunately the source you gave is unreliable as it is a tabloid. And not that interested in "X is going to take over Y" kinds of facts. Otherwise, DYK would be filled with statements like "Did you know that Disney+ is going to take over Netflix as the top streaming service"? Brachy08 (Talk) 04:44, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
      • @Brachy0008: The prior AFD was very poor as none of the editors looked at Newspapers.com or discussed the fact that he's one of seven players whose life story is chronicled in the film The Game of Their Lives (SIGCOV) or that failing all else, this clearly passes WP:NBASIC (but features like Han Bong Jin-he dribbles like Garrincha, shoots like Charlton are clearly SIGCOV for GNG).
        As for the sources itself, being a tabloid alone is not enough to disqualify a source as far as I'm aware. Neither does the Grimsby Evening Telegraph even appear to be a tabloid(?).
        Regarding the hook, I still think it interesting as an extremely obscure player being allegedly better than possibly the greatest ever (this isn't "X is going to overtake"); that its a nation's government making the claim only adds more interest (and North Korea another added twist).
        Should I request another reviewer to analyze? BeanieFan11 (talk) 13:04, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
      • You can if you like. However, even if the player is very obscure, and yeah he is, still doesn’t really spark any interest. Brachy08 (Talk) 13:09, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
        • @Brachy0008: Thought of another one, in case the others don't work – what about:
    Alt4 ... that footballer Han Bong-zin trained in the military every day for four years in preparation for the FIFA World Cup? BeanieFan11 (talk) 14:10, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
    ALT4 can pass. Seems a lot more interesting than the rest. Also, source? Brachy08 (Talk) 00:04, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
    My unsolicited comment. I think the article meets the DYK criteria, and the Alt 3, or something like that is the most interesting. --evrik (talk) 15:44, 17 May 2024 (UTC)
    @Brachy0008: See Liverpool Daily Post: For the last four years of his football career Han Bong Jin — like the rest of his colleagues -- has been preparing for the 1966 World Cup. When the North Koreans reorganised their football organisation he was one of those taken from his club and added to a squad of 40 players to be employed by the Army ... who trained for football twice a day.

    @BeanieFan11: unfortunately, that is a tabloid, and thus unreliable. Brachy08 (Talk) 00:18, 18 May 2024 (UTC)

    @BeanieFan11: searching it up. tabloids are usually unreliable bc they put stuff in a sensationalist light. Brachy08 (Talk) 00:18, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
    @Brachy0008: I meant, how did you determine that the Liverpool Daily Post is an unreliable tabloid? BeanieFan11 (talk) 00:19, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
    @BeanieFan11: tabloids are usually unreliable on wikipedia standards. Brachy08 (Talk) 00:20, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
    I'm aware of that, but I'm not seeing that this paper specifically was a tabloid? BeanieFan11 (talk) 00:21, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
    See Liverpool Daily Post. The infobox says that it is a tabloid. Brachy08 (Talk) 00:25, 18 May 2024 (UTC)
    That links to the newspaper size tabloid, not necessarily that they engaged in tabloid journalism (though some do both). It doesn't seem the paper is at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Perennial sources or has even been discussed at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard. I'll request another opinion on this. BeanieFan11 (talk) 00:29, 18 May 2024 (UTC)

    Without speaking to the specific reliability and usage of Liverpool Daily Post in this instance, BeanieFan11 is correct. "Tabloid" has two different meanings, of which the infobox usage is very different than the secondary use by Brachy0008, which is shorthand for tabloid journalism, which in turn used to refer to specific tabloids with red mastheads, known as red tops. Our article on tabloid journalism makes this distinction a bit more clear: "Not all newspapers associated with tabloid journalism are tabloid size, and not all tabloid-size newspapers engage in tabloid journalism."

      • I do think it’s a significant proposal that will continue to be mentioned years from now. For example, consider the Palestinian proposal at Camp David, which was eventually replaced by an Israeli proposal. Initial media coverage was mainly focused on the Israeli proposal, but as the years passed by academic literature began to pick up on the Palestinian proposal and we can see evidence of WP:SIGCOV in 2003, 2006, 2007, 2012, 2017 etc.VR (Please ping on reply) 04:13, 31 May 2024 (UTC)

    • Issue with hook 2 (and maybe hook 3 as well): The claim may be factually incorrect or misleading. Another reliable source claims that Hamas is not ready to give up its weapons: ""Hamas will not surrender its guns or sign a proposal that asks for that,” Arab mediators said Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar told them in a brief message they received Thursday, as two top U.S. officials, including Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns, hold talks in the region aimed at jump-starting long-stalled negotiations." Vegan416 (talk) 18:38, 6 June 2024 (UTC)

Culture of Domesticity and separate spheres go into further detail, but in brief the "traditionality" of domesticity is not clear-cut, as it has varied between cultures and time periods; as such, it may be a weasel word in this instance.

That's pretty different from ALT3 on close examination (particularly the fact that ALT3 talks about time signature where the source seems to focus on drum fill). I don't particularly think ALTs 0–2 are interesting, but I'm not going to contest that more than pulling out of queue and leaving this comment. theleekycauldron (talk • she/her) 07:35, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
    Googling ""silence is loud" "nia archives" "four to the floor"" gives me a few results that say that the title track used a four-to-the-floor kick drum, but Petridis is slightly less specific. I've amended the article to that effect.

The article uses sources sources I cannot access, so I am going to assume good faith. The ones available are okay and mention what it is sourced. The picture is clear and free. No QPQ required; this is the first nomination. I am not approving it due to three queries. 1st: sourcing; I added a citation needed tag, that's the only issue. 2nd: neutrality, several sentences are written as promotion sentences written in a WP:Wikivoice tone: For example: "By having a strong main theme and a high profile, the festival is popular and relevant to locals who support this event with their community energy" or "The Taste of Summer highlights the region local produce". It is not the same as saying this: "According to The Writer / The Source, [text]", "The Writer / The Source considers that [text]". I recommend you to re-read the article as if you were the reader rather than the writer and identify these sentences and quotes and attribute them to the source." 3rd: the hook.

    • @Lautreca11: Sorry for the late response, this page got lost on my watchlist. As a tip, you can see the template {{ping}} and the editor so they can be notified. Back to the review, I re-reviewed the article, but point three above is still missing. The hook reads: Did you know that there is a seasonal festival in Tasmania that has received yachties from all around the world for the New Year's celebrations for more than 30 years? The article doesn't establish this automatically, you can assume it if you read the whole page. For example.
    • "Did you know that there is a seasonal festival in Tasmania" → The Taste of Summer Festival, previously known as the Taste of Tasmania, is an annual event held in Hobart, Tasmania
    • "that has received yachties" → One of its main goals was to entertain the competitors of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race
    • "from all around the world" → drawing in both locals and tourists from around the globe.
    • "for the New Year's celebrations" → Hobart's waterfront is the place where New Year's Eve festivities are celebrated, including the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race
    • "for more than 30 years" → Its origins back to 1988 when the Hobart City Council introduced it as part of the Hobart Summer Festival
    • As we can read, this is implied, but the DYK rules require the hook to be present in the article and backed up by a source. We have multiple implications that do not necessarily back up the original hook. The all around the world statement is not mentioned anywhere (the word "world" is mentioned twice, but not in this specific context), and "for more than 30 years" is vague because the article doesn't establish that the Taste of Tasmania was the event "the Hobart City Council introduced it as part of the Hobart Summer Festival"; the infobox says that the Taste of Tasmania/Summer has been active from 2003 to 2024. You need to back up the hook in the article with a respective source. Otherwise, you need an alternate hook. You can leave alternatives below with a bolded ALT1, ALT2, etc. (CC) Tbhotch 22:52, 7 June 2024 (UTC)

    • Hiya. The article was new enough at time of nomination (DYK nomination on 24 May, having been moved to the mainspace on the same day, and has not appeared on the Main Page) and is long enough (1737 characters of readable prose and is not a stub). ALTs 0, 1, and 3 are interesting, sourced, and formatted properly, though I would have reduced some of the detail (such as the dates) to increase intrigue. It is up to you if you want to retain the current level of detail (the character lengths are currently 154, 180, and 198 respectively, which are within policy but are pushing its boundaries). I am not approving ALT2: "one of a kind" is too broad and implies that there is something unique about the event, not that it occurred as a one-off.
      As the listed quid pro quo was used in a previous nomination, I believe that a new one is needed – my interpretation of you must complete a full review of one other nomination (unrelated to you) for every subsequent article you nominate‍ ... A review does not need to be successful to count as a QPQ is that they cannot be reused even if the nomination is unsuccessful (maybe seek clarification at WT:DYK). Please also note that full reviews are needed to count as QPQs.
      With regards to core content policies such as copyright, neutrality, and BLP, I did not detect any violations (there is some close paraphrasing, such as the first sentence of the second paragraph of "Background", but there is a limited number of ways to say the same thing). However, there are some verifiability issues with the article:
      • I think that the basis for initiated by the Obama administration in that White House source is a little shaky; while it is probably true, it doesn't seem to be explicitly supported.
      • Is there a better source than that Forbes profile for Futurism helping to organise?
      • More than 20,000 attendees were invited in the article ≠ More than 20,000 were nominated in the source.
      • General comment about the article (expressly not a DYK issue, more a bugbear): I don't really understand the citation structure – the frequency is very dense when it doesn't need to be (eg technology and music[1] festival[2], one-day event[7] hosted on the White House South Lawn[8], and climate[12] documentary Before the Flood.[13]). You're free to ignore this comment if you wish.
      • Another general comment: if you want, there are some nice public-domain photos here that you can add.
    • As DYK eligibility requires additional work, I am marking the nomination with  . Please address these issues before I can approve this nomination. Sdrqaz (talk) 04:04, 20 June 2024 (UTC)
    • @Sdrqaz: I never got a notification on my talk page from the usual bot about there being a problem here. Weird. The sub-heading of this White House page says that it is "A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action". Does that help any? The Forbes entry is staff written, as are the Forbes 30 Under 30 picks, therefore falling under WP:FORBES rather than WP:FORBESCON. They're not explicitly mentioned in this staff article but if you follow the "media" link for that category of the 2017 30U30 present in the article, the profile is half way down the linked page. I don't think that that source should be a problem there. I have adjusted the 20,000 attendees line. Thanks for the link on public domain pics! I will go through those when I have some more time and add a few.   --TheSandDoctor Talk 15:55, 20 June 2024 (UTC)
      @TheSandDoctor: I don't think that there is a bot that notifies you if there are issues – it is up to the reviewer to leave such notices if they wish. I'll ping you to comments I make here instead, if that's okay. I did see that for the Obama administration issue; maybe I'm being too picky, so I'll leave it. I'll give you some time to find a full QPQ (see my comments at the start) or find clarification at WT:QPQ WT:DYK if you disagree. Would also like to hear your thoughts on the hooks. Sdrqaz (talk) 22:38, 20 June 2024 (UTC)
      @Sdrqaz: Swapped out to Template:Did you know nominations/Wan Abubakar. My mistake re the bot -- I thought that there was one but clearly I'm mistaken. Pings are just fine! For ALT0 would that the South by South Lawn festival was modelled after and "organized together with" the South by Southwest festival? work? Would you suggest any detail reduction for ALT1? Curious what you had in mind for shortening ALT3; I think it is interesting enough as is but I feel creating a sense of intrigue could be improved, just not sure how. (Silly me thought I'd saved this comment last night but apparently not...) --TheSandDoctor Talk 14:53, 21 June 2024 (UTC)
      @TheSandDoctor: That is an improved ALT0, in my opinion  . Take what I say with a grain of salt as hook-writing is not a precise science, but I would advise thinking about the purpose behind every included detail. As the author, it depends on what you want to highlight about the article. I would caution against writing hooks like sentences in normal articles: too much detail may not leave the reader wanting to know more.
      Part of the appeal for ALT1 as written is to attract readers who have heard of Adam Savage or MythBusters. However, there's also the risk that people get distracted by the link and click on him instead to find out more. The team from Baltimore may be extraneous detail if you take a more ruthless approach. For ALT3, the same consideration applies: if you wish to highlight the climate change element of it or Katherine Hayhoe's work, then inclusion of her article is a respectable decision. However, as above, it may lead to distraction: as DiCaprio and Obama are much more well-known, then it may not be necessary to have detail about her. Other ways to make it shorter could simply be just removing "actor" or "Canadian" etc.
      I will emphasise that these are just things to think about and you are absolutely free to disregard them as I will be approving the nomination either way. Sdrqaz (talk) 03:55, 23 June 2024 (UTC)

    I'm not an expert on Bollywood so I'm probably not the best person to ask about this; besides, I didn't get much ideas from a quick skim of the article, but it could just be due to unfamiliarity with the subject. Launchballer has experience proposing ALTs for entertainers so maybe they'd have some ideas. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 01:09, 10 June 2024 (UTC)
    ALT2: ... that Rashmika Mandanna was reluctant to accept her first Hindi cinema role as she disagreed with her character's views on spirituality? jumps out, although there may be others.

    General: Article is new enough and long enough

    Policy compliance:

    Hook eligibility:

    • Cited:  
    • Interesting:  
    • Other problems:  
    Image: Image is freely licensed, used in the article, and clear at 100px.
    QPQ: Done.

    Overall:   @Xoak: The article is new enough, as it was created on May 16 and nominated on May 17. It is long enough. There is a source appended to every paragraph. It is written with a neutral, encyclopedic tone, and the hooks are cited properly and are interesting. (The angle of ALT0 is evidently that Cole being devout, a contemporary reader might expect her to support church control of the university; instead, she considered the university's independence important enough to financially support. The angle of ALT1 is simply that she was a fiscally abundant benefactor.) I am presuming good faith about content cited to Tinling (1986) to which I don't have ready access as well as about content cited to Cole (2007) as I don't have a means of accessing the work's first volume (I checked Open Library but was only able to borrow volume 3 of Dictionary of Women Worldwide: 25,000 Women Through the Ages ). There are, however, seven six matters about which I seek resolution prior to approving the nomination:

    First, Cole (2007) is credited to Anna Russell Cole according to your citation. Is the content on page 413 of Dictionary of Women Worldwide a (posthumously published) autobiography by Cole? Or is the name of the author just a particularly unusual coincidence? Or is this a citation reference formatting issue?

    Second, Upon returning to Augusta, Cole taught French and German at a local girls' school may constitute close paraphrasing of On returning to Augusta, Russell taught French and German at a local girls’ school (Turner 2000). If you consider this information necessary to include, is there a way to rephrase or reorganize so as to not so closely paraphrase?

    Third, the article states Edmund Cole had five children from a previous marriage. However, Radcliffe College (1971) calls him a widower with seven children at the time of his marriage to Anna Russell Cole, sounding like he had the seven children at the time of the marriage.

    Fourth, I can't help but think that the article should explain that"Colemere" was the name/nickname of Anna Russell Cole's house in Nashville. I also think her death place should just be given as Nashville; infoboxes seem usually just name municipal locations, not the specific buildings of one's death.

    Fifth, the sentence Cole supported international peace efforts, attending a conference in Vienna in 1916, writing an editorial for the Nashville Tennessean in support of Woodrow Wilson, and donating $2,000 to the Democratic National Committee in 1920 makes it sound as though the Wilson editorial and DNC donations were a subset of her international peace efforts. However, Turner (2000) frames it almost the other way: her international peace activism was a subset of her support for Woodrow Wilson. I'm also concerned that this may be too close a paraphrase and would be grateful for some alternative presentation of the information.

    Sixth, She also had an interest in the arts and was a patron of various cultural institutions. is cited to Turner (2000) but I can't seem to verify it in that source. I can accept the possibility that my eyes are somehow glazing past it; I just would appreciate the verification being pointed out to me, or a quotation provided.

    Seventh, I have questions about the copyright status of the image selected, as it appears to be a portrait painting hung on a wall. As WP:PUBLICDOMAIN explains, [b]ecause an artwork is not published by being exhibited, and also neither by being created or sold, one needs to know when reproductions of the artwork (photos, postcards, lithographs, casts of statues, and so on) were first published. That constitutes publication of the artwork, and from then on, the work is subject to all the rules for published works. The upload on Wikimedia Commons was certainly made in good faith, but it doesn't establish when the work was published in a manner that would clarify its copyright status. Although works created by creators who died more than 70 years ago fall into the public domain if they are only first published after 2003, the source for the image, the Tennessee Portrait Project, reports that it was digitally compiling portraits as early as January 2003, meaning it's not for sure whether the work was published during or after 2003. Evidence for the image's public domain status needs to be provided, or it needs to be relicensed as fair non-free use (because Cole is dead and it is not possible to get a better image of her without just copying this portrait which would be worse to do) and excluded from the hook. [I have struck the seventh matter on discovering I slightly misread c:File:PD-US_table.svg and WP:PUBLICDOMAIN, which states that works by creators who died more than 70 years ago fall into the public domain if they are first published after 2002. As the Tennessee Portrait Project's earliest documentation of portraits was January 2003, this places it after 2002 and therefore means the portrait is in the public domain.

    While these matters are several, the article's in otherwise good shape. I'll be happy to approve the nomination once these are resolved.

    Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
    • Cited:  
    • Interesting:  
    QPQ: Done.

    Overall:   Article properly expanded, no copy vio. Sources used appear reliable. I've done some minor copy edits. ALT0 is rather uninteresting and dull, ALT1 in the hook it is mentioned as "subscription library" and this term has been used in the lead as well, but with no citation although the fact is cited later on in the History section. But as DYK hook rules suggest, the terms used in the hook should be cited in the article somewhat as is. Currently, the cited description in the history section does not mention the word subscription, and the sources do not mention it directly, which is fine here as we can calibrate that easily from the stated info. But it'd be better if you made a mention of that word in that section as well. ALT2 is the most interesting of the bunch. However, it needs a bit of rewording. The source cited mention "due to concerns over Asbestos" but the hooks states directly "due to asbestos". This should be reworded. Moving to ALT3, it feels rather mundane. Ping me once you've made the adjustments. Regards. X (talk) 02:50, 18 May 2024 (UTC)

    • @Xoak: I've decided to lean into ALT2 and ALT3. Reworded ALT2 as you suggested, and clarified what I was going for with ALT3 (the interest part was that it was only added after it was closed). Half-considering adding an ALT4 about how the Modern building was the first such building to be added to the Register, but I'm banking mainly on ALT2, which I agree is the most interesting. I was also thinking of adding another hook about how the 1877 fire originated from Fox's American Theatre considering it was in DYK recently, but I can't find a source that clearly states the connection and I doubt it would be particularly interesting to anyone except Philadelphia architectural historians.

    •   Article is new enough, more than long enough, and very well sourced. Hook is interesting and well-sourced, with a minor problem: while the source is Taiwanese, the article does not actually state that the worship actually takes place in Taiwan. Maybe just drop "in Taiwan", especially since the article mentions other countries like Malaysia as well? ALT1 is a bit dull, ALT2 is otherwise OK but "is said to have" is a bit weak.

      • Thank you for the review, TDogg310 (talk · contribs). Wikipedia:Did you know/Guidelines#External policy compliance says (bolding added for emphasis):

        The article must be based on reliable sources, which must be cited inline. All content that could reasonably be challenged, except for plot summaries and that which summarizes cited content elsewhere in the article, must be cited no later than the end of the paragraph (or line if the content is not in prose).

        Every paragraph in the article is cited except for the lead. This complies with the guideline because "that which summarizes cited content elsewhere in the article" does not need to be cited. The guideline Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lead section#Citations says:

        Because the lead usually repeats information that is in the body, editors should balance the desire to avoid redundant citations in the lead with the desire to aid readers in locating sources for challengeable material. Although the presence of citations in the lead is neither required in every article nor prohibited in any article, there is no exception to citation requirements specific to leads. The necessity for citations in a lead should be determined on a case-by-case basis by editorial consensus. Complex, current, or controversial subjects may require many citations; others, few or none.

        The subject is not complex or controversial (and none of the material in the lead is contentious), so the guideline does not require citations in the lead. Cunard (talk) 10:25, 5 June 2024 (UTC)

    • Drive by comment: "forcibly have marital relations" should either be changed to "rape and forcibly marry" or attributed to a source, this is far too euphemistic to have in Wikipedia's voice. Rusalkii (talk) 05:03, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
    Okay, I'll make the change, although I do think that it is a bit too strong.Davidbena (talk) 11:44, 29 May 2024 (UTC)
    Comment: I don't see how the word "rape" can be in the hook if it isn't in the article. I also think "traditional" may be misleading, unless they are still in effect or only recently stopped being active laws; if they haven't been in effect for hundreds or even thousands of years, then that should be clear as well. Note to Davidbena: rather than edit hooks in situ, please show any revised wordings as an alternate hook (i.e., ALT1, ALT2). I've done so to restore your original hook and show the requested revision as ALT1. Thanks. Also, don't forget to supply your QPQ review (see WP:QPQ); you're supposed to do so within seven days of nominating, and definitely within seven days of being reminded to do so. BlueMoonset (talk) 22:18, 9 June 2024 (UTC)
    @BlueMoonset:, thanks for your comment. Sometimes it is common practice among writers to use "euphemisms" in Belles-lettres and in prose, rather than use a word having the exact same meaning, but viewed as repugnant (e.g. "to forcibly have marital relations" instead of writing "to rape"). Would it help if I put, in the article, the word "rape" in parentheses, immediately following the words "to forcibly have marital relations"? If so, an alternate reading of the hook can be this:
      Done - Davidbena (talk) 22:25, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    Alt3 (see below) is my preferred hook, as it clarifies everything. I will also go ahead and add "rape" in the main article. As for your question about use of the word "traditional," the word is still applicable today, since Jews in Israel recognize these ancient customs as being bona-fide Jewish traditions. They, in fact, could still be upheld today if we had an active Sanhedrin, which, in this case, we don't. Another option might simply be to write, instead of "traditional," the word "obsolete." This word, however, is tricky, because if the Sanhedrin were ever to be reinstated, these laws of warfare would still be applicable today. See, for example, Modern attempts to revive the Sanhedrin. Finally, I do not understand what you mean by saying that I must supply my QPQ review. Give me time to read-up on this.Davidbena (talk) 23:06, 9 June 2024 (UTC)

    • I have begun the review process of this DYK, and the hook seems good and accurate, based on the sources cited. The article is also new enough, having been created on 21 May 2024.

      Article length and age are fine; no copyright violations or plagiarism concerns; reliable sources are used. The article, however, can be improved by using the common spelling "archaeological" (instead of "archeological"). This will bring uniformity in spelling, as, currently, both spellings are used in the article.Davidbena (talk) 00:50, 10 June 2024 (UTC)

    • A suggested improvement might be to add the word "underground" in the hook, even though the link explains what is meant by "hiding complexes." Most editors will not click onto the link, and therefore it is helpful to add this clarification at the very outset. For example, ALT1 ... that underground hiding complexes from the Bar Kokhba revolt were found in Khirbet el-Qutt and other places in ancient Samaria?

    • Comment (not a full review). Per the spirit of WP:BLP, I do not think an article about an autistic boy who became an internet meme is suitable for the Main Page, especially if the full name is mentioned. (The original media reports used 羅先生 (Mr. Law) or 羅同學 (Classmate Law); I do not know when and which HK media started using the full name). The article itself mentions doxxing and negative attention; posting on our Main Page has the potential to lead to further harm. I would suggest not to post this without clear consensus otherwise from a place like the BLP noticeboard. —Kusma (talk) 16:07, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
    @Valereee and Kusma: I'll consolidate my response over here so as not to split the discussion too much and cause any confusion. For the person name, while the person is indeed referred as 羅同學 or 羅先生 a lot in Chinese media, the ones I found in English (SCMP and The Standard in particular) refer to the person by the full name Jason Law: [14][15][16][17]. In fact The Standard included the romanization of 哲琛 as well, but I decided against including it since it isn't really a critical detail in this case. My reasoning for the usage of the full name is based on WP:COMMONNAME, which states that we "generally prefer the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable, English-language sources" (emphasis added in italics). Yes this isn't an article title but nonetheless since "Mr Law" or "Classmate Law" isn't as widespread in English I don't think it'll be helpful in this case.
    I'm not opposed to a discussion on WP:BLPN or somewhere else, but respectfully I'm not sure whether it still matters. As in, it's been three years since the phrase was first said. During these three years, not only has the person made further appearences and interviews [18][19], he has even appeared in an official MTR video re-enacting the scene [20][21]. I'm very sympathetic to his experience of being doxxed, but I genuinely think that given the time passage it isn't particularly as big of a deal as we may think. Him opening up about being doxxed was in 2021; he is still making appearences thanks to the notability from this phrase in 2022. If there was so much of a worry, he could've rejected any further publicity and we wouldn't be seeing him in the MTR video. In addition, there's been far less coverage about the doxxing as far as I can find compared to the more positive aspects, meaning most media (and in turn WP:RSes) don't think this is an important aspect to cover either. I hope I summed up my perspective well enough, and I'm open to any objections.
    Regarding a possible merge as suggested on WT:DYK, my opinion would be oppose. The article easily passes WP:GNG with the number of sources covering the subject, and the MTR video shows that it still has a lasting effect even one year later. Plus, I'm not sure how the article can be merged. I already had a hard time finding articles to link to my article on existing content, and (at least for me) it's quite tough to add details of this event into other articles.

    •   Probably needs a new hook as readers who aren't NFL fans or very familiar with American football may not see the interest of this hook. If a reader does not know what an "AP All-Pro" is or its significance, they won't find the hook interesting.

      Will probably have to disagree here. Readers might still not necessarily get what it means to be an "All-Pro" or how it is a big deal. Historically, our sports hooks have tended to underperform and be criticized as only appealing to sports fans, and I can't see how this hook or angle is any different.

    • Thank you for the extra ALT hooks! I originally had something similar to ALT4 drafted up, but I rewrote it because the source doesn't explicitly state that it was the fourth episode to omit it. While I don't dispute it's a fact, we only have two separate sources that previously three other previous episodes that exclude it, but not that those are the only three. It was a slight case of WP:SYNTH and should probably be re-written in the article, unless such a source exists.

Mr Graur imagines himself a ferocious fella when he says that 'Mr Sergiu Dan continues to express solidarity with his colleagues'. I confess that I would not have established links of solidarity between some of Graur's comrades of the dictatorship-era fascist gazettes and other people who have collaborated on those gazettes, but sure, if it pleases the Educational entrepreneur [Graur], I hereby declare myself responsible for the articles of inveterate, unreformed Hitlerites, such as M.

Propaganda comunistă în școala primară. Clișeele manualelor (II)", in Observator Cultural, Issues 165–166, April 2003: Dadacirea naturii capata accente patetice in sceneta Pomisorul de Stefan Tita (Caiet de lectura pentru clasa I, autori: Cella Aldea si Viniciu Gafita, EDP, Bucuresti, 1974), unde trei copii cu inima nobila si nume melodioase (Tulache, Lica si Culai) planteaza un pomisor si il ingrijesc pina la sacrificiu: in fata atacului iresponsabil cu pietre azvirlite de o ceata de derbedei, Tulache „a alergat sa apere pomisorul cu trupul lui“ (p. 14). Protejarea isterica a copacelului de catre pionierul cu spirit civic si educatie socialista e urmata de un moment de acalmie psihosomatica, in care cei trei cavaleri ai demnitatii vegetale aplica niste cunostinte de medicina pe cit de rudimentare, pe atit de ineficiente: „Udara pomul si-i lipira rana cu pamint“ (p. 15).

The hysterical defense of that tiny tree by a civically-minded, socialist-educated Pioneer is followed by a psychosomatic calmness, with those three knights committed to defending the dignity of plants make use of medical expertise that is as rudimentary as it is inefficient: 'They watered the tree and glued its wound with dirt' (p. 15). How would this ecological 'glue' have looked like in the author's imagination, and for how long would such a (rather evidently useless) 'bandage' of dirt have held on, these are the two mysteries of that sketch, capable of confusing even the most imaginative readers.")

    • ... that the 1846 book The Stars and World History by Felix Eberty, which contemplated a faraway observer seeing "the earth at this moment as it existed at the time of Abraham", inspired a young Albert Einstein?
    • Source: "By the time that Felix Eberty, a German jurist and amateur astronomer, anonymously published “The Stars and World History,” in 1846, it was well known that light had a finite speed... Eberty was particularly fascinated by what this delay meant for a faraway observer of our planet. Perched on a distant star, he wrote, such a person might “see the earth at this moment as it existed at the time of Abraham.” Furthermore, by hopscotching across the cosmos, “he will be able to represent to himself, as rapidly as he pleases, that moment in the world’s history which he wishes to observe at leisure.” Eberty had witnessed great gains in the speed of transportation and communication during his lifetime, and he believed that humanity might soon be travelling even faster than light.

    Among the impressionable young Germans who read Eberty and Bernstein was one named Albert Einstein."

    • Pinging David Eppstein if he could contribute to the nomination (either as a reviewer or to suggest hooks) as the current hook seems very specialist or complex and thus may not be easily understood by general readership. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 00:54, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
    I'll also note that the article would be better with a bit more prose to contextualize what is going on here. Currently the article itself is very inaccessible to the average reader, it would be nice to have a background of why this equation is important (I see the term "Diophantine equation" being used, maybe you could include a few sentences on how this relates to the article) and some prose (as opposed to proofs) to convey the methods being used to solve it. Sohom (talk) 01:10, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
    According to our DYK rules, "Hooks should be likely to be perceived as unusual or intriguing by readers with no special knowledge or interest". I don't think that is the case for the proposed hook. Also, I think the hook is misleading: as far as we know, it could be the case that all solutions of the equation are the single solution 1+2=3, unrelated to the log(2) calculation. And calling this an "application" is dubious when it is just a mathematical calculation used to support another mathematical calculation. I have generally interpreted this rule as requiring that the hook connect the subject to some real-world topic beyond mathematics (just as we require that hooks about fiction connect the subject to some real-world topic beyond the plot). Unfortunately I see no non-mathematics at all in the article, on which to build a hook. It's kind of interesting to me that the known lower bound on a second solution is such a huge number, but I don't think I represent a general reader for this purpose. I do also agree that the walls of equations make the article hard to read (not just to the average reader), but that is not really a DYK criterion. —David Eppstein (talk) 01:22, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
    To be honest, as a non-math guy, this hook is remarkably uninteresting. Though that is obviously my opinion, it shows that it is likely not a suitable one, or the article as a whole as a matter of a fact. TheBritinator (talk) 01:43, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
    How about "... that the only known solution for the Erdős–Moser equation is "1 + 2 = 3" ? DS (talk) 21:21, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
    I think it's better. It still doesn't relate to non-mathematics at all, but at least it's (1) at a level understandable to the general reader, and (2) kind of intriguing how something so basic-looking as 1+2=3 could be the basis of something where we don't know if there is another solution. The question is whether it's enough better to pass the interestingness test. —David Eppstein (talk) 21:27, 5 June 2024 (UTC)

The outstanding issue is that much of the article, including the hook, are not reliable sourced: dignitymemorial is in no definition a reliable source, and, for that matter, neither is tributearchive (per WP:UGC).

      • Thanks for the feedback you gave me since it is the first time I have submitted a DYK nomination. Unfortunately, the only sources that mentioned his age when he became the ambassador to the US and his wife are from User-generated content websites. Sometimes, finding reliable sources of Central African politicians is quite difficult since the country has few online media news. Hence, I have to cite from UGC websites. However, if I remove those sites, the article will still be long enough since it only covers a small portion of the content. Also, it still implicitly states that he was 27 when he became the ambassador by counting the age from his birth and the date he was appointed.

      Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 10:46, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
      ALT1 will not get my consent. Here we have the woman who was at her prime the leading stage actress of the GDR, and that hook doesn't give her any place nor time in history. ALT2: it's not "one review", but in the obituary by the then chief of the German Academy of the Arts. It's again too low-key for my taste. For the benefit of a reviewer. The quote is good, but looses in translation (and omits "beautiful"). --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:42, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    Gerda, there have been multiple discussions, as well as comments from several editors (not just myself), that you need to move away from the style of hook that ALT0 does. The "Performer performed X role" style has consistently resulted in among our worst-performing hooks and has been the object of concern for years not just by myself but by others. If your point is that she was the leading stage actress in the East Germany, that might actually work better as a hook if a source can be found for it and it be added to the article. ALT0 is far too specialist and will appeal to very few readers other than yourself. It's an issue that has repeatedly been brought up in your nominations and at WT:DYK and it would be in DYK's best interest to follow that advice and move away from it. We do not have to go with ALT1 or ALT2 if you do not want, but ALT0 should be a non-starter. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 11:47, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    Remember that the change to WP:DYKINT that requires hooks to be "perceived as unusual or intriguing by readers with no special knowledge or interest" from the original "interesting to a broad audience" wording was a result of one of your own nominations. In the RfC that resulted in it you even voiced your support for it. ALT0 simply does not meet the guidelines (it does not appeal to non-specialist audiences and requires knowledge that either most readers do not have, or the importance of the hook fact is not obvious or clear) and thus should be rejected. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 11:58, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    And then you struck ALT0. I reverted that part. For the benefit of the reviewer. Better no DYK than saying what she studied before she became great without saying how great she became. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:47, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    ALT0 simply does not meet WP:DYKINT. It is acceptable to strike hooks that are unsuitable for DYK if they do not meet guidelines and that is the case here. I have restruck the hook: if you want that particular angle, you will need to propose a different wording. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 14:06, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    ps: We could instead of the roles in ALT0 say that her repertoire spanned from Greek tragedy via German classical drame to 20th century expressionist drama, but that would not only be longer than the three roles saying the same, but also less precise. These three pieces were a series, but I didn't find room to say that also. The character of Medea, a mother who kills her children, is widely known, or am I mistaken? Saying that Paryla played such a character well says more about her abilities than "doing her job". --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:54, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    •   Might as well give this a review. The article is new enough, adequately sourced, and free from close paraphrasing. Everything is adequately sourced; with regards to ALT0, the source is German, but I was able to verify the information with Google Translate. The source for ALT0 is the Akademie der Künste which she was a part of so it's a primary source; however per WP:PRIMARY it should be acceptable here as there is no reason to doubt its reliability and it's not making extraordinary claims. Still waiting on a QPQ.
    QPQ aside, the article itself is suitable for DYK in terms of meeting the technical requirements. The issue is that that ALT0 as currently written simply does not meet WP:DYKINT. It does not matter if the idea is to highlight her achievements or discuss her roles. In the end, that guideline states that a hook must be interesting to non-specialist audiences, and that hook simply does not meet the guideline as it is reliant on information or context that the majority of readers do not get (who is Lang, why is he important, what is the significance of the Deutsches Theater Berlin?)
    The nominator has declined to propose non-specialist hooks or endorse other hook proposals, saying she would prefer "no DYK than saying what she studied before she became great without saying how great she became." As such, the nomination is marked for closure per lack of a suitable hook, unless a hook that meets DYKINT can be proposed. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 14:03, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    In the interest of the nom not being closed just yet, I am offering a compromise here that still focuses on the Deutsches Theater Berlin aspect while highlighting an aspect that may not need reliance on familiarity with classical music or performances.
    ALT3 ... that Katja Paryla (pictured) often played leading roles at Deutsches Theater Berlin with Alexander Lang, who became her partner and the father of her son?
    I personally do not think it is the best angle here and I have some reservations about the "leading roles at the Deutsches Theater Berlin" angle, but if we have to go with that angle, this is the best option I can think of. Rather than highlighting her roles specifically, it is instead highlighting the personal relationship between Parlya and Lang. More eyes might be interested in an actress being directed by her partner/husband/equivalent than being overwhelmed with roles. The other facts are still probably a better option, but ALT3 would probably be preferrable to ALT0 or at least be more likely to meet WP:DYKINT. Narutolovehinata5 (talk · contributions) 14:12, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    My memory must be faulty, recalling that you said you'd review my nominations only after weeks when nobody else does. Paryla is intended to be one of my GA noms in June for Women in Green. It needs more content which will come but not today. Patience please. - I read further about the trilogy of passions (Trilogie der Leidenschaften), thinking about feeding trivia interests more, but only two of the plays were part of it, and the third has no article yet, and she didn't play in it. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:45, 16 June 2024 (UTC)
    ALT2a ... that an obituary of actress Katja Paryla (pictured) described her as, "a beautiful, powerful and sensual presence with a great sense of comedy?"
    ALT2b ... that actress Katja Paryla (pictured) was said to be, "a beautiful, powerful and sensual presence with a great sense of comedy?" Storye book (talk) 17:15, 18 June 2024 (UTC)
    •   I'm fine with ALT2a/ALT2b so I've struck my original ALT2. As Storye book and I both proposed hooks/introduced hook facts, a new independent reviewer will need to give final approval. For reference, the hooks for consideration are ALT1, ALT2a, ALT2b, and ALT3 (although given the choice between ALT2a and ALT2b I would prefer the former given it gives attribution); ALT0 and ALT2 are struck.

    • Starting Review--Kevmin § 17:02, 8 June 2024 (UTC)
    •   Article new enough and long enough. The sections are all cited, and sources are all of good quality and neutrally represented. The description section is a little close to the translated source text and should be massaged into smoother flowing prose. As an alternative to hook, you could go with
    • Alt1 ... that the primary pollinators of the parasitic Scybalium fungiforme plant (pictured) are saruê possums?--Kevmin § 16:30, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
    • Hi @Kevmin:! Thank you for taking the time to read through the article, and I will definitely take into account your suggestion in a moment (just reworded in accordance to your suggestion, if you have any more suggestions to help with the flow, you are welcome to share them!). I appreciate the alternative hook, but to me it feels a bit dry. I would like to emphasize in the hook how the flowers are torn open by possums. Matter of factly telling people that an animal pollinates plants (both of which they might not know) feel a bit dry to those who are not familiar with plant pollination. To folks who are familiar with pollination, knowing that mammals pollinate flowers is an uncommon pollination method and thus interesting, but its too niche to be hook-y to me. Including the idea that the flowers are essentially hidden away until they are torn open could be quite interesting to someone unfamiliar with the subject area. Ornithoptera (talk) 19:29, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
    • @Ornithoptera: I can respect that. With the original hook, its long feeling, we should be looking to streamline it. None of the sources used so far have called the inflorescence scales "sharp", as a note. The Amorim et al 2020 paper specifically uses the terms "scrap and remove" and "desquamate" so maybe going with a peeling analogy. Also did you see there is a Dec 2002 paper also lead by Amorim which details bat visitation to the flowers doi:10.1002/ecy.3935 and documents two possum species and a second major scale removing group in the ruby-crowned tanager, Tachyphonus coronatus?--Kevmin § 20:21, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
    • Alt2...that before they can be pollinated, flowers of Scybalium fungiforme need to be forcefully peeled open by possums or tanagers?
    • @Kevmin: Hi! I did not! Fascinating resource though! It sounds like a much improved hook, and I didn't notice that article while I was doing my research! You are very much welcome to insert it into the article, but it sounds good to me! Ornithoptera (talk) 20:57, 12 June 2024 (UTC)

    •   no issues with the article. original hook is bad, taking a quote out of context. alt1 is boring. alt2 is confusing, and made me think that there was a hotline you could call in the documentary. ltbdl (talk) 02:07, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
      Rating this article as a Start seems ... pretty low (is it "developing but still quite incomplete"?). If I may be frank, this review is seems a little harsh. ALT0 was not taken out of context: the reviewer is saying that the documentary was funny, no (see the quote)? I don't know how to address the charge of ALT1 being boring (I thought that something being unnerving and making a reviewer regret watching was interesting), and as for ALT2, I don't really follow: I believe that they did call the hotline in the documentary. Sdrqaz (talk) 14:54, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
      of course the review is harsh, this is going on the main page. as for alt2, the wording is unclear. perhaps say something like "they call an automated hotline"? ltbdl (talk) 16:35, 12 June 2024 (UTC)
      I've added ALT0a, which hopefully addresses the concern of "original hook is bad, taking a quote out of context", given that it is the same formulation as the source. Sdrqaz (talk) 22:58, 19 June 2024 (UTC)

    Radiosoul

    • Source: From Rolling Stone UK: "While debut album Mellow Moon was written entirely alone during the pandemic, work on Radiosoul began when Templeman was in the process of moving out of his parents’ house and to London with his partner. Album highlight 'Beckham' playfully details his struggles with London’s exhausting rental market, as he details all the neighbourhoods he tried to live in. [...] He ended up living in none of them, but has now set up a new life in the capital that feels as representative of his move into adulthood as his new album. [...] After the pandemic lifted for most people, Templeman’s lung condition meant he had to isolate further, missing out on more pivotal teenage years. 'Everyone was coming out of their shell, whereas I was waiting,' he recalls. 'Things are about to change, and it’ll all be really amazing, but I can’t think about it too much. It was the same case with the album.'
    • ALT1: ... that Alfie Templeman described the style of his studio album Radiosoul as "incohesively cohesive"? Source: From Dork: "Radiosoul pinballs around as many genres as possible in eleven tracks without it feeling like you’ve got whiplash when the song changes. 'The whole idea of it was to essentially make a double album in a single album,' says Alfie of his motive this time. 'Just make as many different kinds of songs and piece it all together and make it sound somewhat cohesive. I always said it was incohesively cohesive, even though that makes no sense whatsoever. I had so many different genres in my head that I wanted to go to.'

    General: Article is new enough and long enough

    Policy compliance:

    Hook eligibility:

    • Cited:   - Offline/paywalled citation accepted in good faith
    • Interesting:  
    • Other problems:   - Multiple dates are given for feast days, and the significance of 8 July is not clear.
    Image: Image is freely licensed, used in the article, and clear at 100px.
    QPQ: Done.

    Overall:   @Evrik: Noting the request for 8 July it may be desirable to include in brackets something like (feast day today) after the subjects name, presuming this won't bring the hook above the 200 character limit. I also wondered how you wished to include the picture in the hook, e.g. (reliquery pictured)? CSJJ104 (talk) 20:22, 23 June 2024 (UTC)

    Samuel Herbert Maw

     
    La Cité de Montréal (1942) by Samuel Herbert Maw
    • Source: "Maw was also the author of a masterpiece of Canadian cartography, a bird’s-eye view of Quebec City, begun in 1926 and completed in 1932, in which he accurately rendered every single building in the Old Town and surrounding area, complete with a hand-drawn cartouche and historical notes on the significance of the buildings shown. Published by the Alexander Litho Co. Ltd. of Toronto, this map, measuring 27” x 35”, was reproduced in thousands of printed copies sold to tourists and visitors to Quebec for nearly three decades. A copy of the map can be found in National Map Collection, NAC, Ottawa. The popularity of this map led to another commission in 1939 for the Royal Tour of Canada. Entitled "This is Canada", it consisted of a full colour folio of maps of all nine provinces, printed in a spiral coil edition by The Macmillan Pub. Co. of Canada, and drawn by hand by S.H. Maw. The original folio was presented to King George VI & Queen Elizabeth by the Prime Minister of Canada. Just three years later, in 1942, he prepared an equally impressive Map of Montreal for the Tercentenary Celebrations of that city. It was placed on public display in the concourse of Windsor Station for several months. Yet another commission for a map was given to Maw in 1944 by the City of Ottawa, and he prepared a historical pictorial map of the Capital, unveiled at the National Gallery in Ottawa in 1944. This original map was later mounted on the north wall in the foyer of the Convention Hall in the Chateau Laurier Hotel."

    • Very interesting. The article is long enough, it's new enough. It seems to be well-sourced, neutral, BLP-compliant, and copyvio-free. The other criteria seem to be met, except as follows: First, how is the image PD in the United States? And second, basically, I just have a quibble. The source certainly indicates his works were well known, but was he? The proposed hook does not make that clear.--Wehwalt (talk) 01:29, 18 June 2024 (UTC)
      • Thanks @Wehwalt! Frankly, I know very little about licensing and have no idea how to figure out what the map's American licensing is. Is there a database to search through or something? Your other quibble is also fair, "well known" might be a stretch for the current context, if we're talking about him specifically. I do believe he was locally well known (or, at least, known) during his career, judging from the historical media coverage I've read. I found this obituary from the Ottawa Journal which I think shows he was notable in his field(s). So, maybe change "is" to "was", "well known" to "known", or both?--WikiFouf (talk) 16:19, 18 June 2024 (UTC)
    Notable has a meaning in wiki-talk, see WP:GNG for example. Maybe we could focus on the fact that his works had thousands of reproductions?
    As for the image, it was, under Canadian law at the time, protected for fifty years after death. Per this, however the copyright may have been extended per WP:URAA. This is not a field in which I am expert. Do you know if the maps were also published in the US at the same time?

    • I have begun the review process of this DYK, and the hook seems good and accurate, based on the source cited. The article is also new enough, having been created on 9 June 2024.

      Article length and age are fine; no copyright violations or plagiarism could be found; reliable sources are used. Since, according to the sources cited, there are several suspected identifications for these graves, it is perhaps best to add in the lead paragraph: “Although disputed, these graves are attributed to the engineers of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, who, according to Jerusalem legend, built the city's wall.” The hook should also clarify this point. For example:
