Untitled[edit]

As the last reviewer said- you should create sections for this article. I also noticed that the latest edit drastically changed the design of the page- you added a lot of content but be sure not to forget to incorporate everything into the wiki! For example, my article, The Hobby Horse is directly related to yours, and I linked to your page. Just look at the previous edit to see how this is done- to be honest I'm not sure why you changed what was there. Also, the bold introduction paragraph is confusing and unnecessary- maybe that could function as your stub? Also consider adding information under the image in the info box.


EDIT: I took the liberty of getting you started by fixing a few grammar mistakes in the beginning. I also added what was there previously as a stub, because it's a general summary and seemed to be the most useful thing on the page for a general reader. You may undo these changes if you wish but I don't recommend doing so. MYoung1030 (talk) 11:32, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

You have good content and a lot of information. However, you might want to break down the information into sections (i.e. Biography, His Work,Accomplishments, etc.) instead of having everything in one column. If this were sectioned properly, it would be a good page- not saying it’s not- and it’ll make it a lot easier for readers to search for information that they might want to find out about. Nonetheless, good job and keep working! Jckulas (talk) 01:47, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
