I saw "I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold... "[edit]

Hi David notMD,
And it was a DYK on 21 February 2018. Splendid! I was quite unaware that it had been included as part of a stamp set.
Thank you so much for improving the article: this sort of collaborative work is why I so enjoy being a Wikipedia editor.

Growing up, a print was in my father's study, so long-time familiar. I regret having not yet been to the museum to see the original. David notMD (talk) 12:51, 12 May 2018 (UTC)


DYK nomination of Vitamin deficiency (declined)[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Vitamin deficiency at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Yoninah (talk) 23:49, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Expansion of length of existing article did not qualify for DYK because it did not take into account that some of the expansion was content copied in from other articles (content copied in separately has to undergo 5X expansion to qualify). David notMD (talk) 14:11, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Summaries[edit]

Why is it bad to not put edit summaries? Millions of others dont
