@Dylan Smithson: could you please add the photo of Bassam Talhouni to the article?

We should also mention what was the permissible limit of people. (mentioned in Reuters)

@Dylan Smithson: I appreciate you resolving this swiftly. However, while the article is under review, please do not edit the article. Instead, leave a note here, like, "please add [[File:Example.jpg|left|thumb|Caption here]] to the article". This is because any edit conflict will lead to significant amount of reviewer's work to go in vain (it didn't happen this time, though)

Thank you, I will. Your care and diligence does not go unnoticed, thank you again for your feedback. --Dylan Smithson (talk) 04:09, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Why this source?[edit]

@Dylan Smithson: I am almost done verifying all the facts. I don't understand why thenationalnews was used, can you please tell me which information comes from it?

The official titles translated in English, which vary in the sources ("Minister of State for Legal Affairs" or "State Secretary for Legal Affairs"?) are ultimately pulled from there. --Dylan Smithson (talk) 04:08, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dylan Smithson: In that case, this might be useful in future. Government's websites often list these things. Face-smile.svg

Thanks! Updated. These types of translations are always so tricky, I can't say I haven't been put off from writing a few articles because of inconsistent wording. --Dylan Smithson (talk) 04:22, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I do find it interesting the Jordanian government website misspells Kreishan's name, by the way. --Dylan Smithson (talk) 04:24, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Dylan Smithson: I understand these things can be tough. I have had similar experiences too. It would be a shame to not have articles because of the official titles. However, if you face such problems in future, just let me know, via talk page or via IRC (I will be on wikinews channels under the nick "acagastya" almost always). I might be able to help you figuring out how to find reliable sources -- which is a skill we learn as we gain more experience writng articles.

Also, re Kreishan's spelling, Jordan is an Arabic speaking country. That name is Arabic. And transliterating Arabic to English is a difficult task. There are many various spellings of the same Arabic words. (For example: Muhammad, Mohammed, Mohammad, Muhammed, Mohamed, Mohamad...) you see, it is the way one speaks.

Review of revision 4608255 [Passed][edit]

Minor unclarity[edit]

Second paragraph, second sentence: "Current capacity is limited to 20 people." — Capacity of what? Is this sentence referring to a general limit on number of individuals per gathering, or a limit on how many individuals can be at a banquet (as the current context seems to imply)? It may be helpful to clarify. Audrey (talk) 02:35, 3 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

If the limit of 20 is on how many individuals can be at a banquet, that would indicate the general limit is at least 20.
•–• 03:39, 3 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This is correct. A maximum of 20 are allowed at events. --Dylan Smithson (talk) 05:49, 3 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
