This list of DYKs is awesome.

I'm going to include a link to the list on the Women on Wikipedia Month page. And speaking of that...

I was thinking that instead of just letting the 8th pass by with nothing, why don't we use it as the kick off day for the month and more long term projects (if they emerge)?

I was going to rework the Meta page today, so let me know your thoughts or (even better) just dive in too!

Yeah it's going to be a great group of DYK's, my Dana Claxton article it going to be up as well..

I wrote her for a photo and now she's telling me she wants to be removed from Wikipedia.

Been talking with GLAM folks and some others about this (so no need to go into how that works here, fyi)..she's telling me this and she's going to be a DYK (she doesn't know that)..

Semi related, it looks like my article about a women's sport (netball) being played in the Cook Islands might make the Did You Know. It just won't make it for a purely women's issue.  It will make it because men dress as women and play the game on a specific holiday.  (Any help improving would be appreciated.  Any help with the good article review process at would also be appreciated.)

What an amazing coincidence ... I was the one who reviewed that as per my DYK submission of [[Waterbury Municipal Center Complex]]. I was quite impressed ... can we possibly get a picture of this?

Life is full of strange coincidences. :)  I was thinking of trying to get the netball in South Africa improved today to see if I can't get it up for a DYK before the article was a week old.  It is at and is really, very much a start article that has some huge issues at the moment.  It has a lot of potentially interesting information that could go into it.

The whole thing is a bit of a learning curve as I've never really written Wikipedia articles before... and netball seemed like a good place to start as it is a women's sport and getting attention to women's sport seems like a good goal.
