Want to also mention that in the 8 hour window Bryan & Baxter was on the front page it received 1,933 views. These are mostly just the curious not necessarily skeptics. This is not preaching to the choir, this is real outreach.
The last page I submitted to DYK was for James Underdown. That page hit over 5K views during the 8 hour window. In that case I got a picture as well as the hook to appear on the main page. You never know what kind of hits your going to receive. It depends on other articles that are competing at that time, news events happening in the world, and the time of day the page hits.
I always forget how to go through this process, so I will be referring to this next time I launch a page. Our goal is to try to get a DYK for every article we launch. Also all of Wikipedia uses DYK, so no matter what language your writing in, we need to try and get the DYK.
Rick was very successful this week, he is also a wonderful editor and a much better writer as you will see.
