Good article! I think you covered her relationship with Nero quite well. I have only a few suggestions. 1.) There are a few spelling/grammatical errors throughout the article, which can be fixed quite easily. The ones I noted were "she may have belong to the emperor Claudius" (I think I know what you mean, but could you clarify?); "fonder of her"; "increasin." 2.) Do we have any information on her earlier life/how she came to know Nero (besides being a slave of Claudius')? Great job, again. Cfrontz 19:19, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Hey.

Looked pretty good to me too, a couple things: 1) I corrected the 'increasin' typo, so don't go looking for that. 2) Is there an (approximate) date of birth or death? I'm guessing not, but if you happen to stumble across it, it might make a nice addition. 3) Do we know anything about her relationship to Claudius? It gets mentioned at the beginning, but I didn't see anything else after that. It might be easier just to take it out and make the article about Claudia Act vis-a-vis Nero.

Otherwise it looks fantastic, good work with the links in the body, especially. That makes it really easy to find pertinent background info.

I won't restate the issue others have pointed out. This is overall a good article. There are couple things I would like to know though. Is there anymore information on her background i.e. her family and her birthplace? Also, if possible, clarify why she was taken as a mistress of Nero. The layout looks fine. The "In Literature" section seems empty to close your article. Maybe considering removing that section and add the information to the top of the article. The reference section is very clear, which is good. Good job on the article. *Augustus Tsai

This article is quite solid, but you need to cite your references more clearly within the text, especially with regard to Acte's property. The initial paragraph about Acte's meeting with Nero is confusingly written and in general, some of your thoughts are hard to follow. Nevertheless, it's a good job and you clearly did significant research.
