en:Saint Panteleimon, Ohrid[edit]

(Net support = 3; Against = 0%) (Group 1)

Saint Panteleimon (Macedonian: Свети Пантелеjмон, Sveti Pantelejmon, pronounced [pantɛlɛjˈmɔn]; Greek: Άγιος Παντελεήμων) is a monastery in Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia situated on Plaošnik. It is attributed to Clement of Ohrid, a disciple of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius. Archaeologists have come to believe that the monastery was the site where the first students of the Glagolitic alphabet (used to translate the Bible into Old Church Slavonic) were taught.

  1. No verificable sources online: the only one ref in the very long incipit is just a 2009 blog (self-published source, not good for wikipedia). --Holapaco77 (talk) 21:05, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Comment Comment Several of the article sources are well known Medical Journals like "Muscle Nerve", "Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America" and "Foot & Ankle International".

I repeat: these sources are not verificable online. Then, the long incipit has only 1 ref and it's not good.--Holapaco77 (talk)`

en:Egg tapping[edit]

(Net support = 2; Against = 0%) (Group 1)

Egg tapping is a traditional Easter game. In English folk traditions, the game has variously been known as "shackling", "jarping" or "dumping". The rule of the game is simple. One holds a hard-boiled egg and taps the egg of another participant with one's own egg intending to break the other's, without breaking one's own. As with any other game, it has been a subject of cheating; eggs with cement, alabaster, and even marble cores have been reported.

  1. The article has a relatively small extension, so it would be easy to translate into other languages. The Canary Islands is a place of tourist interest and is full of history. Enjoy :) --Vinicius10 (talk) 09:41, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
