Review of revision 908012 [Passed][edit]

Number dead[edit]

The number of dead was briefly reduced from 12 to 11 and then back to 12, the confusion is that there were 11 victims killed plus the gunman.--Doug (talk) 22:24, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

One perp identified[edit]

as Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan - MSNBC. Scott Sanchez (talk) 22:32, 5 November 2009 (UTC) Hasan is identified as being dead. Scott Sanchez (talk) 22:38, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

This may already be out of date/ or known misreporting by now. --220.101.28.25 (talk) 00:27, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Ft Hood Website[edit]

Ft Hood Website was on-line a few minutes ago. Loading may be a bit slow --220.101.28.25 (talk) 01:25, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Are you sure? When i follow the link all i get is a "Service Unavailable" message. Tempodivalse [talk] 01:33, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you've got me there That exact link still seems out of service. I was actually at this URL http://www.hood.army.mil/ link. Here much general info still seems to be available. Whether they deliberately took it down themselves, or just too much traffic to the site? --220.101.28.25 (talk) 03:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Hm, the link you provided (http://www.hood.army.mil/) was also down a few hours ago, i checked (now it's back up, but loading slow). I'll bet they removed or moved http://www.hood.army.mil/fthood because i get a 404 error (which, iirc, don't result from heavy site traffic). I'll change the external link to the functioning web page. Tempodivalse [talk] 04:22, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Other Suspects Released?[edit]

Thirteen dead, thirty injured[edit]

According to this BBC article, thirteen people are dead, and thirty injured. I presume this means that one of the injured people has now died. Should we update the article? Dendodge T\C 16:10, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

The 24 hours maximum for updating an article isn't yet expired, i think we could update it if it is done fairly soon. Tempodivalse [talk] 16:12, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
