Early comment[edit]

We really need a better image of the group. The current image only shows three of the group members. Ten Pound Hammer(((ActionsWords))) 01:07, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Rewrite made[edit]

I just gave this article a serious overhaul. Feel free to let me know what y'all think of it. Ten Pound Hammer(((ActionsWords))) 04:36, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Fantastic. It looks like an actual article now. Matt Yeager (Talk?) 21:09, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Meetinthemiddle.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Meetinthemiddle.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

GAN on hold[edit]

  • Infobox...quite a few fields not filled in...origin, etc. Check the template's page and see if there's anything you can add to it
  • "Since its foundation..." - wlink the instruments in this section
  • "Due to a series of health issues" - for everyone in the band? Or else, who was sick?
  • "has also recorded seven studio albums" - also isn't necessary
  • Ref 3: format=html isn't necessary as this is assumed
  • "In 1993, Diamond Rio also contributed..." - unsourced paragraph :(
  • "Also in 1994" - this could read a bit better..."later in 1994" perhaps? (if it was later)
  • "This cover, which peaked at #48 on the country charts, also received a music video; the video won a Video of the Year award from the television network CMT." - needs ref
  • Some of these sections are really short...is there no more information on how the album was produced, what happened outside of recording...nothing?? If not, just merge some sections...these regular headers looks bad
  • "the only exception is on the band's later albums" - this could be more than a minor exception...best to say which ones
  • "and "One More Day" -- songs which" - change to an en dash (–)
  • Biographies section should be renamed to "Side projects", I'd say

Looking mostly good. Leave a note on my talk page when done. Cheers, dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) 09:22, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

This GAN has passed, and this is now a good article! If you found this review helpful, please consider helping out a fellow editor by reviewing another good article nomination. Help and advice on how to do so is available at Wikipedia:Reviewing good articles, and you can ask for the help of a GAN mentor, if you wish.

'70s band also called Diamond REO[edit]

There was also a hard rock band called Diamond REO who apparently had the same idea for their name. 98.246.183.207 (talk) 19:17, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
