Nominator's comments: Though this process typically takes a year, its the intention to withdraw during the middle of a pandemic that makes this notable. Nice4What (talk · contribs) – (Thanks ♥) 19:47, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
*Oppose for now As per Spengouli's comment, there is some missing in-text citations. Once these are added, this is good to go. *Support Looks good to go now, thx Bloom6132 Dantheanimator (talk) 19:16, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
*I am going to reinforce my oppose on this (note to closer: I have opposed further up in the discussion, this is to reinforce the position, given the citations added since yesterday). Although citations are being added, we now have c.14 refs pointing to Discogs.com and a few using IMDB. Neither of these are considered reliable for any articles, so why they are being used on a BLP is beyond me. - SchroCat (talk) 09:51, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

*Oppose for now Missing some in text-citations. Once the sources are referenced, I will support this. No other issues. *Support Looks good now. For the record though, I was still sleeping when you fixed this and when this was posted. Dantheanimator (talk) 18:04, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
"The presence of citations in the introduction is neither required in every article nor prohibited in any article."Since all the info in this lead is repeated in the main text (and cited there), and it does not contain material that is challenged (or likely to be challenged) or any direct quotations, it is redundant to repeat them. —Bloom6132 (talk) 19:46, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Chilean archaeologist and activist, detained and tortured during Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship. Mother of former Chilean president and current UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet. Jamez42 (talk) 14:52, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Ukrainian-born Russian pianist and composer, playing jazz when it just resurfaced after being banned under Stalin, composing jazz sounds in classical forms, and recorded by leading pianists. The article was tagged for needing more sources, but - nice surprise - rich sources including two dissertations were hidden in the external links. - So far, the date of death appears only on his official website, but Discogs and YouTube picked up the year. I was shocked for a moment by seeing the exact wording of our article in a book (and reworded some), but then saw that the book even mentions Wikipedia as a source.

*Strong Oppose Missing multiple in-text citations, doesn't have a separate section for the individuals death, and only has one section. All in all, this article needs a lot of work. Dantheanimator (talk) 19:10, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Updated and well sourced. The author was awarded the Guinness World Record for her book Wonder Crystal in March 2020 for the most number of alternate endings. Abishe (talk) 15:22, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: death toll expected to rise, possibly significantly. Last count is 120, but recovery efforts have been halted due to conditions with bodies in field. The accident itself is a significant loss of life, Myanmarese lives matter. Eostrix (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 11:12, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Legendary West Indies Cricketer. Lead may need some expansion but the article looks to be in generaly decent shape, and for a change is well sourced. Ad Orientem (talk) 20:11, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Nominators often include links to external websites and other references in discussions on this page. It is usually best to provide such links using the inline URL syntax
[http://example.com] rather than using
<ref></ref> tags, because that keeps all the relevant information in the same place as the nomination without having to jump to this section, and facilitates the archiving process.
For the times when
<ref></ref> tags are being used, here are their contents:
