Frequently asked questions
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).

Articles created/expanded on December 23
1966 anti-cow slaughter agitation
Overall: Positive points: On 19 December the article had 6,518 bytes, on 26 December (nom date) it had 33,708 bytes. It was therefore expanded 5x in good time. The copyvio detector is timing out at the moment, so I have given the benefit of the doubt. The source for the hook has a paywall, so I have taken that in good faith. The nominator appears to have two DYKs, so I understand that there is no need for a QPQ here. Negative points: (1) I agree with above comments that the leader needs to be rewritten and shortened. (2) A number of citations require corrections (newspaper article titles missing). (3) The article needs to be checked for neutrality, e.g. the use of the words "mob" and "saints" in the leader, and the words "tremendous," and "brazen," in the main text. (4) There are questions/tags about verification and neutrality in the Cow slaughter and religion section. Conclusion Overall, I fear that the article in its present form may appear to show disrespect to those who revere cattle. The hook might well be good clickbait, but the use of the word "mob" may be likely to offend a large section of the people of the Hindu faith. With all these problems, and the fact that the nominator has not responded to the above comments, in my opinion this nom should be closed as suggested above.

Overall: Most of the comments especially some lengthy ones in each boxes have no sources. You need to add sources for each comment even something as simple as "Copy from 1298" either inline or as a separate notes column. See

2020 Venezuelan National Assembly Delegated Committee election
Overall: By the way, I noticed there was never a proper DYK review (all comments were by the nominators), and this is the first time this is being formally reviewed.

Salgo v. Leland Stanford Jr. University Board of Trustees
Overall: The article was new enough to mainspace when nominated and is easily long enough (~9,000 characters) and otherwise eligible. The article's claims are supported by suitable citations; I'll assume good faith with regard to the paywalled sources, which are substantially supported by the ones I can access. An additional citation is needed. The content is presented in an appropriately neutral fashion, without e.g. taking one litigant's side. I don't see any signs of plagiarism from online sources; the high-scoring hits on the Earwig tool are all matches on the names of cases and institutions and other stock phrases not easily paraphrased. The hooks are both supported by citations, and ALT1 is the more interesting.
A good guideline is to try to include some sort of citation for each paragraph of text, so the article needs to make clear the source for the second paragraph of "History". Wikipedia style frowns on including

Articles created/expanded on February 17
Overall: This seems pretty short for an intersection of this much renown, and especially for a Good Article. But it does meet all of the criteria. Incidentally (as a fun fact), you could've just claimed this as a 5x expansion and it would still have been eligible (expansion would have been calculated from 12 February).

Arthur R. M. Spaid
Overall: The hook feels too long, even though it's still within the limit. Perhaps a slightly changed like ALT2, above? Other than that, this is an amazing article. Very well done! ···
In the "Early life and education" section, what is the source of the last two sentences of the second paragraph which outline his education? I have struck ALT0 since I agree with the above comment that it is cumbersome. I have struck ALT1 since I agree with the above cmment about using "hundreds" ALT2 looks plausible to use.

Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts (Purcell)
Overall: I don't see this one going forward, because there's no compelling reason to waive/relax the newness standard in this case. Still a great article, just not one well suited to DYK to begin with.
Old City of Hebron
Overall: The article complies with almost all the requirements for DYK, but I see two problems: the first is that at the moment it is out of scope: it does not deal about the historic center of Hebron, but above all about the Israel occupation of the historic center of Hebron. It is not even explained why UNESCO considers it as a World Heritage Site. I think that first of all we need an "history" section where to put the info about the occupation, and then the article needs to be expanded, or to be renamed. Moreover, it is not completely neutral; for example, in the last sentence of the introduction, the source used (haaretz) is a liberal, left wing Israel newspaper. It would be good to know also the point of view of the government about the reason for the expulsion of the Temporary International Presence in Hebron.
How can we address your POV concerns without turning this into a very long and complex article and without duplicating all the information at Hebron?
Comment Nothing really has changed the article use the same POV language usage of partisan sites like +972 and Betzelem while no sites with opposites POVs provide only half truths for example it does mention IDF security measures and the Hardship of Palestinian Arabs but didn't say why they where in force. IMO in current form the article could not be promoted --

Al and Barbara Garvey
Source: Beth Winegarner (December 2003). "How Marin County Became Synonymous With Hot Tubs."
Source: Duncan Campbell (July 2002). "From hot tub to hot water", The Guardian.
Overall: Article was created on February 23 and nominated within seven days. Questions on sourcing and citations listed below. ALT1 is interesting and has potential. It is verified with the source provided, but the phrase "started Marin County's hot tub culture" or similar are not explicity mentioned or cited in the section "Hot tub culture". Plagiarism is borderline since some direct quotes are rather long and include multiple sentences. Article is neutral in tone. Length is adequate. QPQ requirement is complete. Overall the article is in decent shape. Please don't be discouraged with the questions listed. The Commons discussion on the photos needs to be resolved. This article would be much better with photos than without. I am also open to considering other hooks.

No trouble. It's not a tourist destination whatsoever! If and when the national reserve status goes through that'll presumably change. It's good to have a decent article for it, though. I've finished working through the feedback; thanks heaps for taking so much interest. The article is all the better for it.

Article: "Objects found inside the settlement attest to the strong ties with southern Mesopotamia. Contacts with Ubaid centers in Mesopotamia are evidenced mainly by a large number of imported pottery, both richly-decorated luxury vessels and undecorated storage vessels. Small objects of fired clay, possibly personal adornments, are also typical of the Ubaid culture. However, Bahra 1 also yielded objects typical of the so-called Arabian Neolithic: pottery (so-called Coarse Red Ware)"

Overall: No QPQ necessary as nominator has 0 DYK credits per QPQ check. Hook is great and very interesting, but the article lacks the necessary recent expansion to qualify for DYK. Sourcing is also a bit dodgy, it'd probably be good to avoid having so many "citation needed" tags in an article featured on the main page.
