London Stages Václav Havel's Leaving as First Place Outside Czech RepublicEdit

Hi Okino. Thanks the article. The reason why nobody reviewed your article until now is that we tend to wait until the author of the article places the {{review}} tag on it. I just reviewed it and it was a very good article. Thanks again. --PatrickFlaherty (talk) 22:44, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

First Czech Winter Olympics champion Jiří Raška dies at age 70Edit

Published! A long wait on the review queue, and honestly it was very difficult to review through the language barrier to the Czech sources (I'm not sure if some things failed verification just because of the translation problem); but it looks like practically all English coverage was from just one article, by AP, so I'm hoping some of this may be nowhere else in English.

Note my use of template {{translated quote}}. See also the detailed history of edits during review, and review comments. --Pi zero (talk) 16:21, 21 January 2012 (UTC)


Just had to fail Miloš Forman receives Directors Guild's lifetime achievement award because it is no longer newsworthy. Sorry about that. I know how much it sucks when that happens: I've had plenty of my stories fail for the same reason. If you can refocus it on a current event, it'd be possible to revive it. Again, my apologies. —Tom Morris (talk) 14:42, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for info. Seeing such humble explanation makes the disappointment a lot smaller. --Okino (talk) 23:26, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
