Substantial changes are in the works for the ADS. They will make much of the current article obsolete[edit]

The ADS project is building a totally revised system, both the back end software and the user interfaces will be completely different. The prototype UI can be seen at adsabs.org/ui The current schedule is that a beta version, similar to the prototype, will be released on 1 Jan 2012, and this will replace the current system on 1 Jan 2013. At that time the current Wikipedia article will be fully outdated. MJKurtz —Preceding undated comment added 03:02, 20 July 2011 (UTC).

This article within the scope of the WikiProjects Systems[edit]

Hi, I have put this article under the scope of the WikiProject Systems because of the formal relation, but more because of the inspiring and motivating example this article can give our project and it's participants (to come). We are still a small and beginning group, and working to get our own toko going. In due time I hope we can also deliver a valuable contributions here from our point of view. In the mean time I wish all of you all te best. Best regards - Mdd 21:39, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

This article needs to have improved referencing[edit]

There are several sections that have no citations per WP:CITE of WP:RS. Is there someone watching this article that could fix this and update the article? —Mattisse (Talk) 17:26, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Michael Kurtz contacted me on my talk page and requested that unreferenced material be tagged, so I have done so. I have notified WikiProject Systems that this article needs updating to maintain its FA status. —Mattisse (Talk) 16:46, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
I have also notified WikiProject Astronomy and WikiProject Physics.
I have replaced the tags with references, but the article needs to be checked for the correctness and appropriateness of my added references. —Mattisse (Talk) 17:00, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Linking to ADS on wikipedia[edit]

The template {{Adsabs}} can be used to link to the ADS page given the articles bibcode. --Salix (talk): 21:24, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

FYI: {{citation}} can be used with proper |bibcode= code instead of {{Adsabs}}. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 15:22, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Layout concerns[edit]

At present there are multiple single-paragraph sections (Wikipedia:Layout#Headings_and_sections) and multiple single-sentence paragraphs (Wikipedia:Layout#Paragraphs). These would likely have been raised as issues during an FAC. I think they should probably be merged or expanded, where possible.—RJH (talk) 16:28, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

References need checking[edit]

I have replaced the fact tags with references, but the article needs to be checked for the correctness and appropriateness of my added references, as I am not confident of them; they were suggested on my talk page by a major author cited in the article. I have asked the opinion of others, but would feel better if they were checked.

Also, the article remains somewhat under referenced. More citations are needed and from wider sources. —Mattisse (Talk) 17:04, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
