Errors with "In the news"

Needs to be updated to say "leaving 11 crew members dead, with 6 having been identified, and 18 others missing." to match the article. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 22:43, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, the source says that the 5 new bodies found have not been positively identified.[2]Bagumba (talk) 15:09, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh. Well then the article's wording needs to be changed. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 19:57, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ignacy Jan Paderewski

1918 – A public speech by famed Polish pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski in Poznań sparked the Greater Poland uprising against Germany. Is not supported by the source cited. The closest it gets, according to Google Translate is: "When, after Poland regained independence, Paderewski returned to the country, he was greeted as a symbol of the rebirth of his homeland. His arrival in Poznań became a pretext for the outbreak of the Greater Poland Uprising" - Dumelow (talk) 08:13, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Added cite (which includes "from which Ignacy Jan Paderewski spoke in December 1918, igniting the insurrectionary spark.") to Paderewski. JennyOz (talk) 10:47, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Today's POTD

Rose O'Neill

"She built a successful career as a magazine and book illustrator and, at a young age, became the best-known and highest-paid female commercial illustrator in the United States. O'Neill earned a fortune and international fame by creating the Kewpie, the most widely known cartoon character until Mickey Mouse" in the blurb and article are identical to the source. Unless we can prove they copied from us, this is a copyright violation - Dumelow (talk) 06:59, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

According to Earwig there are similarities to other sites too, though many of these could have copied from us - Dumelow (talk) 07:06, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
First Earwig hit is a false positive. The lines you quote above were added in 2019 by a newcomer (diff) and it's very likely copyvio. Going to bed now, but unless someone turns up evidence that I've got it backward, I highly recommend removing that from the article in blurb. I'd err on the side of pulling the picture based on this and Dumelow's other issues. Firefangledfeathers (talk / contribs) 07:08, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually, I think the issues in the article are all fixable, and that I can get to them before the deadline. An admin will need to fix up the blurb itself. I'll be able to recommend language before the deadline as well if no one else gets to it first. Firefangledfeathers (talk / contribs) 16:04, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Copyvio now removed. Firefangledfeathers (talk / contribs) 16:04, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"O'Neill was raised in rural Nebraska", Nebraska is only mentioned in the lead and is uncited - Dumelow (talk) 07:00, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"sought a career as an illustrator in New York City at age fifteen" is stated in the lead, uncited. The first mention of New York in the article is in 1893 and which point she would be 18-19 - Dumelow (talk) 07:01, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"later manufactured as bisque dolls in 1912 by J. D. Kestner, a German toy company" is cited in the article to this source which states the dolls were patented in 1913 and does not mention Kestner - Dumelow (talk) 07:07, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Couldn't find which part of the cited source supports "considered to be one of the first mass-marketed toys in the United States" - Dumelow (talk) 07:11, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Thanks for you work on this Firefangledfeathers. I've cut the copyright violation sentences from the blurb and trimmed out the bits that I found were not supported above. Bit of a hatchet job as I am short on time and this will be on the main page in about an hour - Dumelow (talk) 22:49, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Looks fine to me. The bit about NY at 15 is probably untrue, and the detail on the Kewpie dolls isn't particularly relevant to the picture. If you're looking to restore a statement on overall notability, "She was for a time the highest-paid female illustrator in the world upon the success of the Kewpie dolls" is verified.
