Mercer Human Resources Consulting named Bangui as the second worst city out of 221 in their 2010 quality of living survey. Baghdad was the only city to be ranked lower than Bangui.
What a slanderous thing to say about a city that, from 1976 to 1979, was one of only two seats of government in the entire world to host an Empire! Bangui's status in the world was once equal to that of Tokyo! 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:15, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Iran was also an Empire at the time. СЛУЖБА (talk) 23:24, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
And considering that hosting an Empire, which in itself doesn't mean anything, bankrupted the CAR so much, it's no wonder it hasn't recovered yet. -Albertonian (talk) 14:37, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
1a. the prose is clear and concise, respects copyright laws, and the spelling and grammar are correct.
In the history section, what does "Bangui conference of public health officials" mean?
I am not sure I understand what this sentence means (in the "Customs" sub-section): "When a person dies in Bangui, a representative from his/her village always attends the funeral to show to the dead soul the way to his/her village to retain the bond to the day."
Revised with a quote to make it clear
These sentences from the "Music" sub-section needs correction and/or clarification: "The rich music tradition of the country is showcased in Bangui and also musicians also perform in many countries abroad." and "The innovative music based dance bands with their adaptation of Congolese music with electronic medium are rhythmic and they blend the rumba, cha-cha, and merengue."
I believe that "the river" mentioned in the "Sports" sub-section and the linked picture refer to the Ubangi river? In that case, please mention the name of the river.
Please mention that in the caption to the picture too.
What is the significance of this quote in the "History" section: "it was the only place in the world where I have seen almost the entire French community drunk at 10 o'clock in the morning".
No citation provided for this (in the "History" section): "Bozizé went into exile in Chad but later ended Patassé's presidency when he assumed power in the country in a coup in March 2003 and the situation in the city, sometimes called the 'Republic of Bangui', had improved." Also, what is the point of the latter part of this sentence?
Revised with more text and referenced
The lead mentions that Bangui "was named as one of the most dangerous cities in the world". Which organisation named it? Also, this is not included in the main body, and does not have a source.
The book source published in 2009 was referred. It is now included in the history section and date has been changed to 1996. It could be deleted also at both places though the ground situation in CAR even in 2012 was very tense
In the history section, the statement "His successor, General André Kolingba, suspended the constitution and implemented the transition to the Military Committee for National Recovery, but he established a de facto military dictatorship." is unsourced. This seems like an important piece of information, so what happened after that?
Fixed reference and elaborated. The health conference part has been shifted to health section and the population statistics shifted to Demographics section
In the "Transport" section, the sentence "There are plans to connect Bangui by rail with the Transcameroon Railway and maintenance of the communications infrastructure." is both unsourced and confusing.
Additional comment: Any reason why the three sentences on health care are provided in the "economy" section? --smarojitHD 16:04, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Shifted to a separate section on Health.
Dr.Blofeld and myself were involved in the DYK. I also edited and enlarged the bibliography section and corrected some other sections before it was posted on GA. I have replied to all the observations. I hope it is ok now.--Nvvchar. 23:16, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Comment: Please ensure that there aren't any instances of overlinking in the prose. Currently, there are several such instances. Also, the third and fourth mention of "AIDS" has been wikilinked, while the first one hasn't been. So please link only the first occurrence of the word. --smarojitHD 02:19, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the review. Hopefully, I have removed extra links and addressed all other issues.--Nvvchar. 04:39, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Will come back later in the day after finding new sources for the dead links.--Nvvchar. 15:04, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Addressed all other issues raised by you.--Nvvchar. 19:28, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Good job. I am passing the article. :) --smarojitHD 05:31, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
