 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. We have a whole section on Allegations of adultery, what are you looking to add? Cannolis (talk) 21:10, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Improved to Good Article status by BeLucky (talk). Self-nominated at 22:08, 23 July 2023 (UTC). Post-promotion hook changes for this nom will be logged at Template talk:Did you know nominations/Martin Luther King Jr.; consider watching this nomination, if it is successful, until the hook appears on the Main Page.Reply[reply]

  • Comment' BeLucky, the article was listed as GA in 2013, so it does not appear to be new enough for DYK, where the nomination should be made within 7 days . TSventon (talk) 22:45, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Comment' @TSventon (talk) Found out a interseting fact and added it to the page. But unable to understand the category under which we can list. Can you suggest another category to list it under DYK? --BeLucky (talk) 22:51, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • BeLucky DYK is for articles created, expanded at least fivefold or promoted to good article status within the past seven days, so this nomination is not eligible and expanding the article fivefold would be challenging. I can recommend DYK, but you do need to read the rules at WP:DYKRULES. TSventon (talk) 23:24, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • @TSventon (talk) Kindly explain what is the meaning of fivefold (5x). As unable to find any explanation on it. --BeLucky (talk) 23:30, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

BeLucky, fivefold means expanding 1,000 characters of prose to at least 5,000. There is guidance about how to measure length in WP:DYKRULES and WP:DYKSG. If you have more questions the DYK talkpage is probably the best place. TSventon (talk) 00:31, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@TSventon Thanks for pointing out. Still learning. New to DYK thing. --BeLucky (talk) 00:34, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Martin Luther King Junior was an important staple to the civil rights movement Organicmaterr3499 (talk) 09:17, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not done, since the lead has "who was one of the most prominent leaders in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968." in the first sentence. --Mvqr (talk) 09:49, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Add Martin Luther King Jr. to the category of American Anti-Capitalists: Jeusebi (talk) 19:28, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done ––FormalDude (talk) 22:08, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Randy Kryn: [3] There are six citations in the article that support it. From the article: King believed that capitalism could not adequately provide the necessities of many American people, particularly the African-American community. King expressed that "the evils of capitalism are as real as the evils of militarism and evils of racism". ––FormalDude (talk) 23:02, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Support, check in politics section for any doubts. C0137Hatt (talk) 01:21, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
