The lead needs some work. The first two sentences are OK. Everything after the first two sentences needs to be moved into a new section AFTER the lead called "Background". Then the lead needs to be expanded so that it includes a comprehensive summary (not details) of the entire article.Done
Also when you write the lead leave out the citations as leads do not normally use citations since the lead is a summary of cited text in the body of the article. There are exceptions to this guideline but that is the general rule.Done
Very nice quality illustrations with suitable captions. However the image of Presidents signature is too big and falls outside the boundaries of the section. It either needs to be reduced in size or moved to a different section.Done
7. Overall assessment.
Overall a very nicely written, well sourced article with wonderful illustrations. After the above changes are made I would be happy to give it GA status.-- — Keithbob • Talk • 21:58, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for a speedy response and edits to the article. There are still a few more items:
This exact sentence appears twice in the lead "The fifty euro note is the fourth smallest note measuring 140x77mm with an orange colour scheme."Done
We shouldn't have info about the founding of the euro or about the ten euro note in the lead. This may be related info for the Background section but the purpose of the lead is to define the topic and summarize the main points of the article per WP:LEAD.Done
The word "euro" is wikilinked twice in the lead (MOS says we wikilink just the first time it appears in the article)Done
I don't see why we need a subsection called "Changes" for two sentences of text. Changes in design are part of its History. WP:LAYOUT says "Short paragraphs and single sentences generally do not warrant their own subheading"
Unless this is an historical event....consider moving this sentence out of the History section and into the Background section: "Both the European Central Bank and the central banks of the eurozone countries have the legal right to issue the 7 different euro banknotes. However, the national central banks of the zone physically issue and withdraw euro banknotes. The European Central Bank does not have a cash office and is not involved in any cash operations."Done
The changes in the Design section look good. We are almost there. Cheers! -- — Keithbob • Talk • 16:20, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for reviewing it. And 4 days! I think that is a personal record on GA Improvements! – Plarem(Usertalkcontribs) 18:26, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
"The changeover period during which the former currencies' notes and coins were exchanged for those of the euro lasted about two months, until 28 February 2002." should include the start date which was 1 January 2002 ✓Done
"Their aim is to record is to ascertain details about its spread and to generate statistics and rankings for various notes." needs to be reworked. ✓Done
