Instructions[change source]

Did you know? (DYK) entries are interesting facts that not many people may know. On this page possible entries are listed and members of the DYK project assess the nominations for the DYK section. DYKs are listed on the Main Page.

How to enter a DYK[change source]

List articles on this page under the Nominations area, below. The newest nominations go at the top. If you would like to make a nomination, you should read the rules below.

If there is a picture that you would like to see used with your nomination, please add it with your nomination as shown below. Any user may nominate a DYK suggestion.


Rules[change source]

  • Only one article can be nominated for a Did You Know hook.
    • This does not mean there can only be one link in the hook. It means the hook is to feature one article.
    • This main article is the link which is in bold. This article must meet the DYK rules.
    • Any other links in the hook are minor links.
  • Information presented in any article nominated for DYK should be verifiable and unbiased. There must be a citation of a credible source to support the fact contained in the hook.
    • Articles that are tagged for bias with {{NPOV}} or for lack of accuracy with {{Disputed}} are not suitable for DYK.
    • Articles where facts are questioned with {{fact}} tags may not be suitable.
  • The article linked should be easy to read.
  • Articles nominated for DYK should not be too short.
    • Three-sentence stubs are not suitable.
    • The text of the article must be at least 800 characters. The number of characters can be measured with this tool .
  • The hook used to encourage people to read the article should be interesting to read. Information mentioned in the hook should be in the article text (not in a footnote, or in a linked reference, or in an infobox).
    • Whether a hook is not interesting should not be a matter for only one reviewer to decide. The first reviewer marks as {{DYKalmost}} if they feel the hook is not sufficiently interesting, with wording like "Is there a more interesting hook?". If 2 assessors (including the initial one) agree that the hook is uninteresting and no alternative has been put forward, the nomination is rejected with {{DYKno}} and advice to the nominator that "2 reviewers feel that this hook is not interesting, please suggest an alternative hook."
    • Articles may be re-nominated, but a different hook must be chosen. Also, two different hooks of the same article should not be added to the same update or updates that follow each other.
  • DYKs should not be very good articles (VGA) already as VGAs already get their own spotlight on the Main Page as the "Selected article".
Proposed facts should
Suggested facts (also known as hooks) should be
Suggested pictures should be
Have in-line citations Interesting From Wikimedia Commons
Articles on living people must be carefully checked to make sure that no unsourced negative information is in the article Short (less than about 200 characters, including spaces) Small (100x100px)[1]
Articles with good references and citations are needed. Neutral Already in the article
  1. Formatting for pictures is: [[File:image name |right|100x100px]] and placed above the suggested fact.
  • Editors may only nominate up to four hooks at any one time. If more nominations are desired, existing nominations must either be removed, promoted to one of the DYK queues or placed in the holding area.
  • Hooks cannot be moved to a queue or removed from the nominations page until they have been there for a minimum of three days. The only exception to this are hooks that can be "snowed". Hooks can also be removed if there has been no input from the nominator after five days from the last review. Unreviewed hooks however cannot be removed until there has been a review.

I don't fully understand what this hook is trying to say, can you maybe re-phrase it? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:54, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Alexis Kennedy[change source]

  • ... that Sunless Sea, the first video game by Alexis Kennedy, got the last ever 10/10 rating from video game magazine Eurogamer? Vaticidalprophet (talk) 04:58, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
    Hi Vaticidalprophet, I think the hook and page are both great. Maybe you could shorten or simplify the explanation on browser games, since it's not directly related to Kennedy? The wording on the misconduct allegations is also a bit odd and vague, especially when you compare it with enwiki's version. These are minor concerns though. Sorry to get to you 3 months after posting this! Aranya (talk) 18:27, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

@Eptalon: "The auction house at first thought that the paintings would not sell for more than 600 to 800 pounds." - do we have a source for this...I will say 3rd one seems the best as 1st can be ambiguous as there can be other animals that can draw, like an elephant or etc...2nd seems alright but then people may not know the value of the art which makes it sensational, I can buy a painting for $1. Last one seems the best but I will say is it possible to add in that it was in an auction? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:20, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
The field is vast, look at en:Monkey selfie copyright dispute (no, we don't have it yet. 'Ape does selfie, who owns the copyright?')--Eptalon (talk) 12:28, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, but the general consensus at commons is that the person with the device own the copyright if I remember correctly. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:25, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
