Need help on expansion[edit]

I don't think I have enough time to expand the article. Later time, the subject will be old news. I welcome your collaborations please. --George Ho (talk) 19:20, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

@George Ho: the article is fresh until tomorrow. The current revision seems to be fine. Do you want to submit the current draft?

Review of revision 4322242 [Passed][edit]

10th or 11th for one Rolling Stone article[edit]

Acagastya, whether the dating issue is minor or not, I think the time zone difference must have prompted you into reverted the change. The publication is American, and I verified that at the start, the source is from the 10th. May you please amend the date? --George Ho (talk) 19:51, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

I didn't know how to judge this when I first saw the pending edit, as I don't trust these sites not to do strange things when rounding to a whole number of days. However, looking at the page html,
"datePublished": "2017-06-10T16:08:00.000Z",
"dateModified": "2017-06-10T16:08:00.000Z",
That would be Zulu time; so, yes, given the hour, it would be June 10 anywhere in the US. --Pi zero (talk) 20:24, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
George Ho changed June 11 to June 10 at 18:29, June 14, 2017 (UTC). It is 03:32, 15 June 2017 (UTC) now, and still RS says four days. Now, here is the strange thing. 18:29 UTC = 11:59 PM IST. So, it was June 14 here and that website said 4 days ago. It is 9:02 AM IST and it still says four days ago. It is odd. Rolling Stone's website, as far as I know, is located in the US, and should not say four days ago. So, the best way to deal with this should be the date of access.

This is why I don't like to base these things on those silly "x days ago" messages; you never know if they're rounded up or down. I think the publication date-and-time is clearly marked on the page, June 10 at 1608 UTC (which would be 12:08 east-coast US time, 9:08 west-coast US time); in fact, I suspect the "x days ago" thing is generated from that (further investigation would be required); but, whatever. --Pi zero (talk) 10:57, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Update: The Rolling Stone article gives out the date of publication, so I changed it. --George Ho (talk) 14:36, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
