Instructions for nominators[edit]

Create a subpage for your new DYK suggestion and then list the page below under the date the article was created or the expansion began or it became a good article (not the date you submit it here), with the newest dates at the bottom. Any registered user may nominate a DYK suggestion (if you are not a registered user, please leave a message at the bottom of the DYK project talk page with the details of the article you would like to nominate and the hook you would like to propose); self-nominations are permitted and encouraged. Thanks for participating and please remember to check back for comments on your nomination (consider watchlisting your nomination page).

If this is your first nomination, please read the DYK rules before continuing:
Official DYK criteria: DYK rules and supplementary guidelines
Unofficial guide: Learning DYK

To nominate an article[edit]

Read these instructions completely before proceeding.
For simplified instructions, see User:Rjanag/Quick DYK 2.
I.
Create the nomination subpage.

Enter the article title in the box below and click the button. (To nominate multiple articles together, enter any or all of the article titles.) You will then be taken to a preloaded nomination page.


II.
Write the nomination.

On the nomination page, fill in the relevant information. See Template:NewDYKnomination and {{NewDYKnomination/guide}} for further information.

  • Not every line of the template needs to be filled in. For instance, if you are not nominating an image to appear with your hook, there is no need to fill in the image-related lines.
  • Add an edit summary e.g. "Nominating YOUR ARTICLE TITLE for DYK" and click Save page.
  • Make sure the nomination page is on your watchlist, so you can follow the review discussion.
III.

In the current nominations section find the subsection for the date on which the article was created or on which expansion began (or, if a new Good Article, the date on which it became a GA), not the date on which you make the nomination.

  • At the top of that subsection (before other nominations already there, but below the section head and hidden comment) add {{Did you know nominations/YOUR ARTICLE TITLE}}.
  • Add an edit summary e.g. "Nominating YOUR ARTICLE TITLE for DYK" and click Save page.

How to review a nomination[edit]

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.

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.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

Backlogged?[edit]

This page is often backlogged. As long as your submission is still on the page, it will stay there until an editor reviews it. Since editors are encouraged to review the oldest submissions first (so that those hooks don't grow stale), 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 above).

Where is my hook?[edit]

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 other editors[edit]

How to promote an accepted hook[edit]

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

How to remove a rejected hook[edit]

  • 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]

  • 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[edit]

  • 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.

Created by Aman.kumar.goel (talk). Self-nominated at 11:00, 17 February 2021 (UTC).

Collapsing prior review from Bahnfrend. DanCherek (talk) 22:36, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

  • Adequate sourcing: Red XN - I checked only three of the sources, and two of them didn't support the relevant assertion. So, eg, where did the assertion that the messages are known as "Koos" come from? Similarly, where was the list of intended further languages sourced?
  • Neutral: Green tickY
  • Free of copyright violations, plagiarism, and close paraphrasing: Red XN - Can't tell yet, as the sources for some of the content are unclear.
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation

QPQ: Red XN - Not done
Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg I've added a link and made a minor amendment to the hook. Bahnfrend (talk) 12:22, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

@Bahnfrend: I have addressed above issues with my recent edit. I don't think QPQ is needed because I have less than 5 nominations. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 11:23, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg It has been more than two weeks, and reviewer Bahnfrend has not returned; new reviewer needed to check the issues previously raised and see whether they have been addressed so the DYK criteria are met. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:08, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
New review by DanCherek
General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

  • Adequate sourcing: Red XN - need sources for "first launched in Kannada", "Hindi", and all of the future languages. The Japan Times source says that Koo installs increased by 901,000, not that there were 901,000 installs
  • Neutral: Green tickY
  • Free of copyright violations, plagiarism, and close paraphrasing: Red XN - it would be great if the first two sentences of paragraph 3 (about Koo vs Twitter) could be reworded a little to make it more different from the source
  • Other problems: Red XN - there are concerns on the talk page about the article's title, and whether it should be moved to Koo (app) or Koo (social network), these should be addressed (whether or not the page is ultimately moved) prior to approval. (FWIW, I think I agree that it should be moved since the name of the app is just "Koo")
Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
QPQ: None required.

Overall: Symbol question.svg @Aman.kumar.goel: Thanks for your patience with this nomination, sorry for the delay. See comments above, there are a few remaining things that I think should be resolved before approval. Let me know if you have any questions. DanCherek (talk) 22:36, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

@DanCherek: Fixed these issues except the last one. The concern over the title might be outdated because it was 2 months ago and this microblogging service is referred to as "Koo App" in the sources that we have used. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 12:01, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
@Aman.kumar.goel: While the headlines say "Koo App", the prose in all of the sources call it "Koo", "the Koo platform", "the Koo app", etc., with no capitalization in "app". Reference [7] says: It is named just “Koo” on the App Store with Bombinate Technologies Private Limited as the provider. I think it's similar to how we have articles titled Twitter and Snapchat rather than "Twitter App" and "Snapchat App". Also, "first launched in Kannada", "Hindi", and all of the future languages should be sourced — I'm being annoying about this because if the unsourced material is removed it starts to approach the 1,500-character minimum DYK threshold. Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or if you want me to open it up for more opinions from WT:DYK. DanCherek (talk) 20:14, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi Aman.kumar.goel; are you going to return to make the changes that the reviewer asked you about? It's been nearly a month now. If we don't hear from you in the next few days, this nomination will have to be closed. MeegsC (talk) 21:04, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5 and MeegsC: I have resolved all issues now. Let me know if any problems exist. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 05:20, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
DanCherek, how is it looking now? Do you approve it, or are there still issues? MeegsC (talk) 08:11, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Symbol possible vote.svg Sigh... it's undergoing a big expansion by another user which is great for the article but always complicates things here. @Aman.kumar.goel: With the new content added by Badassboy 63637, there are now sections that need further copy-editing (e.g. capitalization issues, external links removal) and sources needed (e.g. "Most Followed Accounts" is unsourced). I also note the three editors on the talk page who are in support of a title change. DanCherek (talk) 12:31, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Li Qiaochu

Created by CRau080 (talk). Self-nominated at 20:10, 23 March 2021 (UTC).

  • Hi CRau080 thanks for the submission, I'll be doing the review. Please see below.


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

Image eligibility:

QPQ: None required.

Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg This is a well-written, well-sourced article, new, neutral in tone, and with no copyright issues found. The hooks are interesting and I would accept either of the two. However, there may be a chance of increasing the "hookiness" by trying something like:

  • ... that Chinese activist Li Qiaochu was detained 31 December 2019 and spent New Year's day in handcuffs in relation to the "12.26 Citizens Case", while her partner Xu Zhiyong was still in hiding?

Finally, the image comes from a screen capture of a PEN America YouTube video, which I understand is not allowed without the proper license permission from the original author. Perhaps a second opinion from an editor with more experience in Commons could be useful. Alan Islas (talk) 14:37, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi Alan Islas, thank you for your feedback on this article and its nomination. I have adopted your suggestion for the extra words in the first hook. Regarding the copyright issue of the photo, I have been alerted to the insufficient copyright through recent feedback of a Wikimedia staff, and I have asked PEN America to send in a copyright release statement compliant with the norms; I believe that the matter may be possible to clear rather quickly.--CRau080 (talk) 17:13, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks CRau080, sounds good, I will leave this submission in the current hold status, awaiting the image license permissions. I hope this can be resolved successfully because an article is always better with pictures. Alan Islas (talk) 00:02, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Hi Alan Islas, I see that the status of my DYK submission has not changed. I presume that this is because the licensing issue has not been cleared yet. If that is the case, could you please let me know? I will then try again to obtain the relevant permission from PEN America.--CRau080 (talk) 21:08, 27 April 2021 (UTC)
@CRau080: I see the image is still being used in the article's infobox; this DYK nomination is unlikely to be promoted as long as the article contains this potential copyright issue. Would you like the image to remain in the article and if so, any updates on the permissions? DanCherek (talk) 17:28, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
@DanCherek: Thank you for your reminder on this. I have just emailed again PEN America and hope for the necessary steps to be taken soon.--CRau080 (talk) 17:48, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
@DanCherek: The permission has been sent to Wikimedia (with me being copied in) just now. I therefore believe the nomination process can soon be resumed.--CRau080 (talk) 22:46, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
Cool, I suggest waiting for the official OTRS confirmation and then the original reviewer can be pinged to pass this. DanCherek (talk) 00:16, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
Hi @Alan Islas: I can now confirm that the permission issue that blocked the progress of this DYK nomination, has been resolved, i.e. PEN America has kindly granted the permission needed.[1] I would therefore like to ask for this nomination to be further processed.--CRau080 (talk) 20:07, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Created by TJMSmith (talk). Self-nominated at 03:00, 18 March 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol possible vote.svg @TJMSmith: Most of the article is taken from a public domain source [3]. This is allowed, but this text dcount towards the 1500 character requirement. I only count about 1100 characters of new text, so it needs a little more expansion.
There are also sourcing issues. The non-copied text of the article is also entirely based on sources that aren't independent, so there really needs to be more text based on independent sources, preferably more than half the article. The copied text does have some added independent references, but they are popular media articles and one needs to be careful since these aren't considered reliable for biomedical statements (see WP:MEDRS). Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 06:53, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
Antony-22, I wasn't aware that the text doesn't count towards the 1500 requirement. Is that policy stated anywhere? I agree it would be preferable for there to be more independent sources. Academics are not always covered as frequently as other notable figures (like entertainers and athletes). I'm not sure if that this point alone disqualifies a DYK nomination. The majority of the content of this article is cites a reliable (but not independent) source. Thanks for the review! TJMSmith (talk) 14:24, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
It's part of Rule 2b. You can still add text or rewrite the PD text to satisfy the length requirement.
Generally these kinds of institutional biographies are "reliable" in the sense of being factual, and they can be used as sources, but they shouldn't be most or all of the citations. It's as much a neutrality issue as a verifiability one. Academics are sometime tricky to find independent sources for, but sometimes you can find news/perspectives articles like this one [4], or a piece in an alumni magazine or hometown newsletter, or even other journal articles that talk about their work. So how about this, do a search and see what you can come up with, and if there really isn't anything out there I'll say it's good enough since the article's only making straightforward factual statements anyway. Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 21:40, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
I very much appreciate your thoughtful feedback/constructive criticism. An ongoing work emergency is limiting my Wikipedia editing time. I wanted to acknowledge that I've read your response and will work on this Zhang article as soon as I can. I think I should have some time between now and 4/19. TJMSmith (talk) 02:04, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
That's okay, no rush! Antony–22 (talkcontribs)
I added content. What are your thoughts? Thanks! TJMSmith (talk) 02:09, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
@Antony-22: SL93 (talk) 05:31, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

@TJMSmith: Sorry for the delay. The article is fine now, so on to the hook. Per WP:MEDRS it's not good practice to feature a result from a single study out of context. Could you provide another hook? Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 03:04, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Drive-by ping of TJMSmith - it has been almost 3 weeks since Antony's ping above. Are you intending to continue with this DYK? ♠PMC(talk) 22:44, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Daisy Myers

Created by NoonIcarus (talk). Self-nominated at 13:43, 31 March 2021 (UTC).

General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

Hook eligibility:

  • Cited: Green tickY
  • Interesting: Red XN - hook is fine but I would just cite THR and say "inspired" instead of "partly inspired"
  • Other problems: Red XN - kind of long, I don't think the "African American" specification is needed in the hook as it's obvious given the "racially-charged harassment" in an all-white town
QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol possible vote.svg @NoonIcarus: see above. The major issue is the copyvio which needs to be remedied before this can be approved. Let me know if you have any questions. DanCherek (talk) 21:02, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

  • @NoonIcarus: You need to address the close paraphrasing issues, or this nomination will be closed. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:18, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Thank you very much for the reminder! I forgot this was due for correction. @DanCherek: I have written a different hook hoping to solve the issues at hand and done my best to solve the copyvio problems. Please let me know if there are further improvements left. Best regards! --NoonIcarus (talk) 15:04, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
@NoonIcarus: I looked at this diff to see the changes since March; it looks like you went through and substituted some words within each sentence but the overall sentence structures remain the same. I'm afraid this still has parts that are very closely paraphrased from the sources. While facts are not copyrightable, creative elements of presentation – including both structure and language – are. As an example:
Source: Levittown police failed to enforce the court ordered protection for the Myers, prohibiting more than three people from assembling near the residence at once. Mobs consequently gathered in this fashion each night, only finally subsiding due to interference from the state police.
Article: The town's police failed to enforce the court ordered protection for the Myers, which prohibited that more than three people assembled close to the house at once. Mobs consequently gathered similarly each night and only finally subsided due to the intervention from the state police.
There are other passages that similarly follow quite closely. It's hard to avoid close paraphrasing when you start from content pasted in from elsewhere; the best way to revise it is to rewrite from scratch to avoid infringement. Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing has some tips for doing that. DanCherek (talk) 15:26, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
@DanCherek: Hi. Many thanks for sharing WP:CLOP with me, I wasn't aware of it before. Based on the same diff, I have tried to change the structure of both the mentioned paragraph as well as the other sentences which words have been paraphrased. I'll look forward to do the same with any other possible sentences in the same conditions. --NoonIcarus (talk) 19:01, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
No, there is still close paraphrasing / copying of phrases from sources. For example:
Source: This led to an injunction and criminal charges against the harassers while Myers and their supporters refused to surrender and received national acclaim for their efforts.
Article: The police intervention led to an injunction and criminal charges against the attackers; the Myers and their supporters refused to give up, receiving national acclaim for their efforts.
DanCherek (talk) 00:12, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Comment. The cited reference for the hook does not state that Levittown was all white. That demographical assertion in the hook and the article is problematic.4meter4 (talk) 00:13, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Improved to Good Article status by Limorina (talk). Self-nominated at 08:25, 27 March 2021 (UTC).

  • No, you have to link and bold the article in each hook. Also, neither of these hooks are particularly interesting or unusual. It isn't strange for a government official to visit a major production and actors probably celebrate birthdays on set all the time. (t · c) buidhe 14:26, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Improved to Good Article status by The Ultimate Boss (talk). Self-nominated at 22:51, 6 April 2021 (UTC).

  • @The Ultimate Boss: Before I review, may I suggest that you completely re-write this hook. You make it seem as if 50 Cent was shot and killed in a home invasion. Also, phrases like "debut posthumous studio album" which are mandatory in articles, are considered superfluous in DYK hence why they don't need to be included. Consider writing this hook: "... that after Pop Smoke's sudden death during a home invasion, 50 Cent took it upon himself to finish the former's debut album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, on his behalf." or something along those lines. HeyitsBen talk 08:22, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Hook eligibility:

  • Cited: Green tickY
  • Interesting: Red XN - This hook simply states the executive producer of a posthumous album and the reason of death... nothing much. I suggest that you spice it up by including the fact that 50 Cent "curated" Pop's album "took it upon himself" to finish it after his death, which the Billboard source supports already.

1928 Austin city plan

  • ... that the 1928 Austin city plan recommended segregating the city's African American residents in East Austin? Source: "The "Schools" chapter concludes: "It is our recommendation that the nearest approach to the solution of the race segregation problem will be the recommendation of this district (just east of East Avenue and south of the city cemetery) as a negro district" (https://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2010-02-05/953471/)

  • Symbol question.svg @Bryanrutherford0: This article is new enough and long enough. The article is neutral, and I detected no copyright issues. A QPQ has been done. With regard to the hook, the plan did not recommend segregation, but tried to achieve it in other ways. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 09:34, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the review! The exact words of the plan are included in the source given above: it recommended the creation of a "negro district" and the relocation of the black population into it, which is precisely what is meant by the term "housing segregation". It didn't recommend bringing segregation about through the zoning code, which is what had been recently prohibited by Buchanan v. Warley, but rather through other techniques of city planning. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 15:37, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol voting keep.svg Well OK, but I still think the plan did not recommend segregation (because this was prohibited), but instead made recommendations that if put into effect would result in segregation. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:20, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg This needs a different hook. The article text suggests segregation, while the source provided explicitly says the plan wanted to get around segregation with something that would still have the same result. There can be differences in interpretation, but such a semantic point is too controversial to just pick one interpretation (which, like Cwmhiraeth, I personally think is inaccurate) to go on the main page. Kingsif (talk) 21:02, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Hmm... I'm sorry, but I don't understand this feedback. Regarding Cwmhiraeth's comment, I'm not sure how it could be clearer in the sources that the 1928 Austin city plan *did* recommend the racial segregation of housing in the city. As this source says, the 1928 city plan "institutionalized racial segregation. It recommended a plan to move 'the negro population' east of East Avenue." Or, as this source says, "the 1928 City Plan was aimed at relocating and segregating blacks." There is no controversy about this fact, nor is there any need for "interpretation". As for Kingsif's feedback, I actually can't parse your sentence: what does it mean that "The article text suggests segregation"? Neither the Wikipedia article about this plan nor any of the news and journal articles cited in it "suggest" segregation, in the sense of "recommending" it (though the 1928 Austin city plan, the topic of this Wikipedia article, explicitly does). The source I linked in the hook proposal does not in any way say that "the plan wanted to get around segregation"; on the contrary, all of the sources cited in this Wikipedia article explicitly say that establishing racially segregated housing in Austin was a specific goal of the 1928 Austin city plan, as in the two representative quotes I've included earlier in this paragraph. I'm not sure what "semantic point" you feel is being made here; there's no "interpretation" for us to do when the sources say that "the 1928 City Plan was aimed at relocating and segregating blacks." Or are you just saying that anything related to race and segregation is too "controversial" to go on the Main Page? I don't understand what part of the hook you don't like. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 02:06, 27 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Are you being deliberately obtuse? Why would I say an article recommends segregation when we were talking about phrasing regarding the plan that's the subject? Did it need restating that we were talking about phrasing because what else would I be saying... The phrasing article text suggests that the plan says segregation, while the source explicitly says - in fact, let me take from the part of the source you have quoted above - "the solution of the race segregation problem"; they weren't allowed to segregate, and to get around the "problem" they came up with a solution that was segregation by another name. Kingsif (talk) 13:37, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, but I honestly don't understand what "The phrasing article text" means; what is a "phrasing article"? Anyway, I think I see where the confusion is, so let me again clarify: you and Cwmhiraeth both seem to be writing under the mistaken assumption that housing segregation was somehow illegal in 1928 USA, but that is not the case. There was no law against "segregation" (indeed, racial segregation was almost universal in the South at the time); there was a SCOTUS ruling prohibiting explicitly racial zoning laws from mandating housing segregation, and the "race segregation problem" the writers of the city plan refer to is the problem of how to bring about racial housing segregation (perfectly legal) by some means other that mandating it through municipal code (unconstitutional under Buchanan v. Warley). Their recommendation, as I believe this Wikipedia article spells out, was to "advise that the city concentrate all public amenities aimed at black citizens in this region, so as to draw the black population to it", since Buchanan v. Warley prevented the city from explicitly forcing black people to move to a designated ghetto. The 1928 city plan explicitly, specifically aimed to segregate the city's black residents in a designated "Negro district", and all of the cited sources specifically and explicitly confirm that this was its goal, and that it succeeded.
If you'll read the rest of the page where you (Kingsif) drew your quotation, page 57 of the plan says, "... in regard to the race segregation problem. This problem cannot be solved legally under any zoning law known to us at present..." (emphasis added). There was nothing illegal about citizens living in racially segregated patterns of housing; the "problem" the city plan writers were approaching was how to bring about racially segregated housing without using the zoning code. The hook I proposed above is beyond dispute factually correct, as explicitly confirmed in all the relevant sources included in the article (I quoted two clear examples above). If you have some other problem with the proposed hook, then let's discuss it; but, there's no serious argument to be made that the 1928 Austin city plan wasn't in favor of housing segregation. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 14:39, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
Your explanation is exactly what I already understood. They wanted to segregate, couldn't do it X way, came up with solutions that forced segregation. That is the concern Cwmhiraeth brought up, also; I pointed out that it can be interpreted both ways. And yes, I think you're being obtuse if you refuse to acknowledge that it may not strictly meet definitions of segregation as the hook and article imply. And so the point is, though you can argue your side and we can argue ours, the mere fact it's debatable means we shouldn't be picking a side to put on the MP. Because that would be user debate deciding how racist this plan was, rather than just presenting the source facts for people to read. Kingsif (talk) 14:47, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
What two ways are the "both ways" you refer to? What other "interpretation" are you advancing? I wish you would just say what you don't like about the hook. Again, here's what the "source facts" say: the 1928 city plan "institutionalized racial segregation. It recommended a plan to move 'the negro population' east of East Avenue" (source, emphasis added). "The 1928 City Plan was aimed at relocating and segregating blacks. ... The plan to relocate Austin’s black population to an area across East Avenue ... was the City Council’s way to accomplish segregation without running afoul of the Constitution" (source, emphasis added). "The 1928 master plan legally segregated African American citizens into their own community east of East Avenue" (source, emphasis added). "Austin’s first zoning code ... enshrined legal segregation by race and ethnicity" (source, emphasis added). Is the word "recommend" the word you don't like? Are you saying that you would only support a hook that uses the exact words used in the sources? I'm not aware that WP or DYK have required verbatim quotation from sources in the past, but we could certainly change the hook to say that "the 1928 Austin city plan aimed to segregate the city's African American residents in East Austin", so that it would then use precisely the words that one of the sources uses. Would that help? The proposed hook doesn't say that the 1928 Austin city plan "was racist", so it leaves the reader perfectly free to "decide how racist this plan was"; the proposed hook says only that the plan aimed to establish segregation, which all of the sources also explicitly say. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 15:18, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
  • I don't want to get into all the back-and-forth discussion above, but I would recommend looking at Civil Rights Act of 1968. Prior to that, and even for decades afterwards, cities and communities in Texas and other parts of the USA practiced segregation of communities. If there was an insidious way of segregating out non-whites, towns, cities and counties did it. You might just be arguing over semantics here. I'm not going to read all the text and sources above. I don't have a problem with the original hook. — Maile (talk) 20:50, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Giant pumpkin

Giant pumpkin
  • ... that while the current record holding giant pumpkin weighed 2,323.7 lb (1,054.0 kg), a scientist at Georgia Tech calculated that an ideal pumpkin could grow up to 20,000 lb (9,100 kg)? "In fact, mechanical engineer David Hu and colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology have been investigating pumpkin growth....Hu thinks they can get even bigger. To figure out how much bigger, he and his colleagues placed pumpkins of various sizes in a vise-like instrument and subjected the fruits to pressure until they cracked. These force measurements led them to estimate just how big a pumpkin might get in a perfect world. The answer: 20,000 pounds." [8], [9]<

Also, I think your revision for 5x expansion is technically Special:Permalink/593046794 or possibly Special:Permalink/283405360, but am not sure. Eddie891 Talk Work 18:03, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
  • @Eddie891: Interesting, didn't realize the page was once larger. Looks like it had been about "Atlantic Giant", but then got changed to be about Giant Pumpkin and all the material was removed. So thus I came across a single sentence article, not sure if that counts or not. With regards to giantpumpkin.com, I have no reason to doubt its validity. However, I will endeavor to find individual articles for each record. That may understandably take a bit :) CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n! 20:47, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
  • @CaptainEek and Eddie891: I do find that the question about whether 5-fold expansion was achieved to be quite interesting. At first I thought the article was ineligible, because e.g. supplementary rule A4 states that it is calculated from the previously existing article, no matter how bad it was. But then Wikipedia:Did you know/Fivefold gives an example, which seems to indicate that only the previously existing version is compared against. I do find the latter stance to be more reasonable, as it's quite hard to check every single revision of a page back to 2006 or so. And if you miss just a single instance were the article was vandalised with a wall of text, your hard work becomes ineligible? Doesn't make sense.
  • So unlikely cases of "cheating" aside, I think only the recent revisions should be checked against. And since the article had essentially been a one-liner since at least 2018 (and several revisions since), I would argue that this makes it eligible for DYK under the 5x expansion rule.
  • But I must say I agree about giantpumpkin.com. Might be reliable, might be not; I'm a bit sceptical since there is no one named as "responsible" for the information. Is this the official site of a pumpkin weighing organization? Or is it just someone's personal homepage where they collected these stats? Maybe I am overlooking it, but I couldn't find that. --LordPeterII (talk) 13:57, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Created by Remando (talk). Self-nominated at 23:55, 19 April 2021 (UTC).

Welcome to DYK, Remando! I haven't looked at the article yet, for lack of time, but just some hopefully helpful hints:
  • You can bold "outside" the brackets of links which makes it easier, - done for you here.
  • In such cases, an apostrophe needs a template, - done for you.
  • The hooks are too long, not only formally, - they also tell too much. You want to make people get curious, not give the :impression they know it all when reading the hook.
  • External links - like to the book - are a no-no, not only in hooks, also in article prose.
Please word a new hook, and I recommend to build on the ALT. I'll watch, and possibly review when I have time. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:44, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

--Remando (talk) 17:38, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
Remando, thank you for the offers, with good ideas, but none ready to be approved. They'd all need "... that" at the beginning. I don't think hiding her gender is a good idea, and therefore suggest to give her her name. My simple idea for a hook would be just repeat what the lead says. - Some concerns in the article:
  • I'm not sure about Professor vs. professor, and Psychology vs. psychology. Please go over that, leaving only titles capital.
  • Why not use the lovely image here?
  • The grammar of "modulate basic emotions using the body and particular breathing patterns" - somehow doesn't work for me.
  • She is very cautious about no birth year, but can anything please have a year, like graduation, move to France, whatever?
  • I'm particularly curious where Arendt comes from
  • Please avoid constructions such as "It was there she and ..." and "It was this collaboration ...".
  • Please avoid - generally - to have a full date in md-format as an adjective, as for the Chilean coup d'état. I fixed it here.
  • Check for repetition of "working".
  • "where she continues to devote her time to teaching, developing new practical applications in various areas and internationally, and writing about her work" - that doesn't need any "devotion of time", and is unclear where "and internationally" connects to.
  • I had no idea that "sexuality" and "tenderness" are emotions, - does that come from translation?
  • "genuine, organic emotion" - what's that?
  • Books and Awards need references.
  • I wonder if some detail from the references should be quoted in the article, because going back and forth is tricky.

  • Symbol possible vote.svg I have some difficulties with this article. Please see my edit summaries. The article has many features of a BLP puff piece, including all the sourcing from press releases (many of which I have removed), but it also has the "Controversies" (a title that is discouraged by the MOS; that section should probably be integrated in the section about his conversion, and that section then should be retitled). But besides what I've already cut, I have other concerns: much of the article is sourced to a Bisnews article, which is not accessible to me, but I don't have that much faith in them as a reliable and independent source. For instance, it's telling that none of the "negative" information is sourced to that article. The same goes for the Post article from a trade journal, the Engineering News-Record. So there's work to do here, I think, and it has to start with rigorous sourcing, as behooves a BLP. Drmies (talk) 20:54, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

For what it's worth I think the image of him in the article could probably be used instead, since it appears to be public domain and still shows the company's sign, plus "founder pictured" is shorter than "advertisement flyer pictured" should we decide to use the image. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 02:53, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
The picture of Kalevi Keihänen standing on the doorstep of his company would work just as well. There are precious few pictures of Keihäsmatkat available either on Wikipedia or on Commons, mostly because the company went bankrupt decades before Wikipedia was invented, or the Internet came to Finland in the first place. Should the picture be fixed already on this nomination page or will it be taken care of if the nomination is accepted? JIP | Talk 22:58, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Policy compliance:

Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation

Personally, I know the hook is true as every New Year news broadcast mention it, and because of that, I think the fact "that the Gilbert Islands were a full day ahead of the eastern islands [...] When the Republic of Kiribati was founded in 1979" is even more interesting, especially because they lived like that for 24 years.

@Anonymous 7481: You can write "ALT1: ... that ...? ALT2: ... that...?" and so on. For the tags, the idea is that this specific article will be featured on the main page, so this will be the one that people will read. If the sources are elsewhere, you can copypaste them here, there's no problem at doing that. If you click any of the bolded DYK links, you will see that none have unsourced statements because verifiability is one of the DYK rules. (CC) Tbhotch 14:44, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

  • Here's my review...
  • 1935 New York anti-lynching exhibitions - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally. Problem - the spring of 1935 violates MOS:SEASON, please correct. I do see the sentence at the end of the "Organization and background" section, that should be put towards the start of the section.
  • Lynching of George Hughes - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally
  • Death (statue) - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally, appears to be written neutrally
  • Aaron Goodelman - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally, Earwig is happy with the online sources not being plagiarized
  • This Is Her First Lynching - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally
  • The Law Is Too Slow - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally
  • Lynching of Henry Lowry - brand new article, long enough, citations in every paragraph, appears to be written neutrally
  • Sources - most of these articles are sourced to the Apel and Heid books, which I was able to read some of on Google Books. I'll AGF for any detail that I may not have seen in those snippets.
  • Image - present in The Law Is Too Slow and Lynching of Henry Lowry, is relevant to the hook and listed as being donated to Wikicommons, so PD, and shows up well enough at this size
  • The hook - Removing the bolded characters from the hook for the purposes of counting, this hook is still over 200 characters. WP:DYKSG C3 says that we can make exceptions for multiarticle hooks, if it is reasonably compact and readable. The hook could be made more clear. Does the hook benefit from mentioning the lynching of John Carter? How was the NAACP "using" the lynching of Henry Lowry?

Muboshgu, I appreciate you. I know I got some more QPQs to do, but man, I'm watching this documentary on Betty Davis and it is quite something. Anyway, SEASON was new to me, and I can't say I like it, but I fixed it--put in the dates, added a journal article to verify. Here's a tweaked lead--the first lead was actually a lot longer, and John Carter was in there but I submitted him separately I think. Drmies (talk) 00:04, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

  • Great. I see one more minor issue though, a small discrepency in dates. In the 1935 anti-lynching article, section "Organization and background", it says in the first paragraph that the NAACP exhibition was Feb 15 to Mar 2, and the second paragraph says the Artists' Union exhibition was Mar 3 to Mar 16. Then the last sentence of the section says they were Feb 15 to Mar 1 and Mar 2 to Mar 16, respectively. – Muboshgu (talk) 23:43, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg Query: Article is new enough, long enough, neutral, fairly well cited, and free of copyvio (The Movie Outlet appears to have plagiarized from this article). QPQ verified. Hooks are formatted and not too long. However, I don't find the hooks particularly interesting, and the article is so short that there isn't a lot of material to work with. (I wouldn't mind seeing the article expanded a bit with some higher quality sources, if that can be done in a timely manner – Whatsondisneyplus.com describes itself as an "unofficial fan site".) ALT0 almost looks like an advertisement (product A, which is associated with acclaimed B, can be purchased at C). ALT1 is more suitable though I feel it could use a rephrase – perhaps 'featured' instead of 'starred' and remove the year?

General: Article is new enough and long enough
Policy: Article is sourced, neutral, and free of copyright problems

Hook eligibility:

  • Cited: Red XN - See below.
  • Interesting: Green tickY
  • Other problems: Red XN - The hooks are equally interesting (I myself prefer ALT0) but there are some strange things with the sources.
    • For ALT0, the Riverside Church article says the total weight of the ensemble is 500,000 pounds, which would be 250 short tons. See page 7 of "The Riverside Church" (PDF). New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. May 16, 2000. According to this article (citing the church's website), the bells weigh over 100 short tons or 200,000 pounds, a figure corroborated by The New York Times. This apparent discrepancy will have to be fixed before ALT0 is approved, but it is clear that the 500,000 pound figure refers to the equipment holding the bells along with the bells themselves, while the bells are about/over 200,000 pounds. I fixed this in the church article already, though.
      • Typically carillons are measured by the weight of the just its bells because the rest of the ensemble is frequently replaced and the data on their weights are not available. In the case of Riverside's carillon, they measured everything else to really hit home how much weight is sitting in the tower. I do like the fact about the total weight, though, so I included it in the article. What if we combine the two facts together? See ALT3.
        • @Thrakkx: I had just realized there was no conflict between the 226-metric-ton equipment and the 91-metric-ton bells. Sorry for creating the confusion, I only realized afterward that the weight of carillons doesn't include the equipment from which they are mounted. ALT3 looks interesting and falls within the length limit (170 characters), though I think we can smooth it out a bit. How about something like "... that the world's heaviest carillon, weighing over 91 metric tons by bells alone and over 226 metric tons in total, is at Riverside Church in New York City?" This comes out to 155 characters (159 if you include "the" before "Riverside"). Epicgenius (talk) 00:31, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
    • For ALT1, the 150,000 figure is not in the carillon article.

    • For ALT2, sourcing is fine, but it says 15 collections with music from the heyday of the carillon. I'll assume good faith that the "heyday" refers to before 1900.

Spot-checked sources, with thorough check of hook facts and quotations, all good except for following. Query: Regarding ALT2, the quotation from the source was actually larger than presented. I've fixed that presentation in the article, but the quotation in the hook needs to be extended or partially paraphrased (generally, I feel that quotes in hooks should be as short as NPOV allows). I'll wait for changes to ALT2 before giving the tick, unless you want to scratch ALT2. – Reidgreg (talk) 21:54, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Love Has Won

Created by Hemiauchenia (talk). Self-nominated at 01:33, 9 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg Article hits on size and newness. I did a little copyediting of the wording in the history section, including tweaks to the "cult" description which is always contentious. Sourcing is solid and thorough, however a few issues give me pause. The phrasing "told The Daily Beast he had been expecting his mother's death" is directly from the Daily Beast article and should be reworded to avoid copyright concerns. Same with the phrase "a fixed set of beliefs, instead" from the BBC article (yes, I am a CV stickler). Also, right now the article states in Wikipedia's voice that the death might have been due to colloidal silver, but out of an abundance of caution, particularly since it hasn't been officially ruled yet, I would reword that to say who exactly has suggested that.
    IMO the current hooks are not that uniquely interesting - lots of people have made wackadoo claims about their ancestry or past lives. I don't know if it would be prohibited by rules against hooks based on negative info about BLPs, but to me the most interesting and hook-worthy things about this article are a) the leader being found as a Christmas-light-draped glitter mummy just recently, and b) the fact that they were driven out of Hawaii by locals after a mini-riot. If we do stick with the current suite of hooks, I think they should be tweaked to include a brief description of "Love Has Won" for context - something like "new religious movement Love Has Won" would be fine. ♠PMC(talk) 23:49, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg @Tbhotch: Both pages have received new enough and large enough expansions, and a double-QPQ is present. The source in both articles (identical text) checks out and supports the claims in the article. I did have to improve both pages to make the writing more idiomatic, and the hook needs the same treatment. I'm particularly wondering if "Superior Auditor of the Federation" (which I had personally used in my work before) may be a better translation for the ASF, though I note that English-language published material is absolutely all over the place, for instance this OECD report uses three different translations (and I'm contemplating writing the missing article).

Writ of mandate (California)

  • Created by Amitabho (talk). Self-nominated at 06:10, 12 May 2021 (UTC).
  • @Amitabho: I suppose this is a uniquely appropriate article for me to review. Looks good; just two simple things: 1) The paragraph beginning An alternative writ and order to show cause needs a citation, per supplemental rule D2. 2) Per rule 3b, each fact in the hook needs to be in the article with a citation no later than the end of the sentence. So, just tack on a citation at the end of the following sentences: As such, the only way for most interlocutory decisions to be reviewed before trial is through ordinary mandate. and ...against the trial court as respondent, naming the other party as the real party in interest. Once you've fixed those minor issues, the article should be ready. Cheers, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 22:32, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
  • @Amitabho: One more thing: Would you mind adding in "immediately" to the hook, e.g. "the only way for litigants to immediately appeal..."? Of course, one can challenge pre-trial rulings on appeal by simply waiting until after final judgment, as the source notes. I think adding "immediately" would remove any chance of misunderstanding.

Sather Professorship of Classical Literature

Created by Modussiccandi (talk). Self-nominated at 08:34, 12 May 2021 (UTC).

  • Symbol question.svg Article creation date versus filing date okay. Article length meets the requirement. QPQ done.
  • But I don't like the hook at all. I'm all for off-beat attempts to draw reader attention, but this hook is trivial at best and diminishes the subject at worst.
  • I'm also concerned about the sourcing/neutrality of the article, in the sense that three of the four sources used are publications of Berkeley itself or its university press. Those sources can be used, but if this professorship is as important as the article makes it out to be, surely there are other outside sources that can be employed. In particular, an outside source might clarify if the professorship lectures themselves, and the books that come from them, have been influential in terms of their ideas and themes. Or rather is it that the professorship is prestigious because it is a reward for prior scholarly work. Wasted Time R (talk) 01:55, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
@Wasted Time R: I agree that the sourcing has too much UC Berkeley in it to be entirely neutral. I'll look out for more sources and ping you once that's done. Chances are a new hook will surface, too. Best, Modussiccandi (talk) 09:04, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
  • @Wasted Time R: I've added an "Impact" section sourced from newspaper articles about the lectures and books deriving from the professorship to address neutrality concerns. Here is a suggestion for a new hook; let me know what you think. Modussiccandi (talk) 13:58, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
  • ALT1 ... that the Sather Professorship of Classical Literature was named after Jane K. Sather although her husband had accumulated the money to fund it?

[...] But still, the name on the cornerstone of the tower is hers alone; the professorships are named for Jane, not for Peder. Dow (1965) 31.
@Modussiccandi: The article is much better now. (As a minor point, I'm not sure what the criteria is for a cite going into the Bibliography versus being done inline in a footnote, but that doesn't matter for DYK.) While the ALT1 hook is better than the original one, it seems a bit underwhelming. What about a hook that is based on the impact the Sather lectures/books have had?

@Wasted Time R: on your observation regarding the bibliography: the sources that have "authors" I put in the bibliography, those that are written by anonymous staff writers I leave in the refs section (like a website, essentially). I will provide a hook on one of the publications below. I was reluctant to do so because I felt that it wasn't sufficiently interesting to a broad audience.

  • ALT2 ... that Helene P. Foley's Sather Lecture on the reception of Greek theatre in the United States was described as "something of a milestone" in bringing the subject closer to the mainstream? Source: Most have been published, and Reimagining Greek Tragedy on the American Stage, based on the lectures given by Helene Foley in 2007-08, is the seventieth volume in the series. It is remarkable - yet unremarked - that these were the first ever Sather Lectures to come under the broad umbrella of "Classical Reception". During the past twenty years or so the exploration of what has been made of and out of the classical cultures in modern times has moved from the margins into the mainstream. The incorporation of "Reception" under the Sather banner is, however, something of a milestone. And it is appropriate that this is devoted almost exclusively to American reception. Taplin (2013).

Overall: Symbol question.svg @No Swan So Fine: thanks for creating this. Coincidentally I had a flick through this book a few months ago, and at that time read many of the same reviews you have summarized in the article. The article is new enough, long enough, passes Earwig (the only things showing up are quotes), and the image has a good free use rationale. My only comment is that it doesn't mention Wilson's apparent one-sidedness vis a vis the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict; this can be easily solved with the addition of the excellent The Spectator review by Paul Foot: [47]. Foot's review makes for a fascinating read – almost 40 years to the day that it was written, very little has changed. Onceinawhile (talk) 21:12, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for finding that review. I've tried to paraphrase it in my recent addition. Do you have access to the Guardian/Observer archive? No Swan So Fine (talk) 22:13, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

That policy, Mr. King said, “is the way to secure the future of Jerusalem as a Jewish capital for the Jewish people.” “If we will not be in big numbers and if we will not be at the right places in strategic areas in East Jerusalem,” he added, then future peace negotiators “will try to divide Jerusalem and to give part of Jerusalem to our enemy.”"
