Challenge to the US note[change source]

There is currently a note Since on average about 50% of hooks on the suggestions page are U.S. related, it is usually appropriate to have roughly half the hooks in any given update on U.S. topics. Thanks

I am doing my best to challenge any such bias but trying I gues not to introduce an Aussie or any other bias in its place. How about we just say it is good to have a balance of subjects covered by the hooks? --Matilda (talk) 05:58, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

The note was copied from en:T:DYK/N. Sorry, I guess I forgot to remove it. Your idea sounds better. – RyanCross (talk) 20:59, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Some fixes to proposed hooks[change source]

  1. Does % need linking or something? Maybe not.
  2. After the novel should be a comma (',').
  3. "Founder" isn't simple.

I just noticed them, I may be wrong. ;) -- American Eagle (talk) 01:24, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm... I don't think that Number 1 is necessary, but perhaps... Number 2 there is a comma, and number 3 have you any suggestions? ;) Cheers, BG7even 10:22, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps, "...that the first Chess boxing champion was the person who started it, Iepe Rubingh? -- American Eagle (talk) 17:47, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Yep that would work. I'll take it over. (Just a note, in future please remove the hook and restore the original discussion if there are discrepancies - don't bring it here as it's not very high profile!) BG7even 18:03, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Croatia[change source]

How come the fact about Croatia being part of Hungary isn't here? User:Bluegoblin7 said he would add it to the next update. Tharnton345 19:22, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

It was Shapiros who said that. Give it some time. Synergy 19:26, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Uniteresting[change source]

There is an uniteresting hook. TurboGolf 14:47, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Which one? Juliancolton (talk) 14:50, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
About Venus. TurboGolf 14:51, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I disagree. I find the Venus hook quite interesting, even though I have known it for a while. Some people may not know that other planets are different from the Earth. Best, BG7even 15:08, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I knew it befor the nom. TurboGolf 15:12, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
As did I, but I don't see why it is uninteresting. The approver didn't think so either - hook stands. BG7even 15:22, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
OK then, it's just because I'm clever. TurboGolf 15:39, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, not everybody is clever. :) Juliancolton (talk) 15:42, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Yet you think that "Jupiter has rings" is interesting? Hmm... Either way (talk) 18:04, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, some people might not know that. TurboGolf 18:09, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
And some people might not know the atmosphere components of the planet (I being one of them). Either way (talk) 18:14, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
