  7. Overall:
    a Pass/Fail:


I made many changes to the article per WP:MOS. Grammar and spelling was an issues in places, as well as the use and placement of punctuation, or lack thereof. Dashes should be in accordance with WP:DASH, refs should be placed directly after punctuation with no space before and no punctuation after, see WP:CITE.

  • The lead does not adequately summarize the article per WP:LEAD. For the length of the article, there should be at least three paragraphs for the lead.
    • Her full name should also appear in the lead (I do believe), although, considering the length, I would avoid the optional embolding.
      • Done - added basic summary about Zita's life.--Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • The article could use some additional wikification. I did some, but I still feel that certain terms could be wikified for context.
    • Done - wikified as much as I thought sensible --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Titles, such as emperor, should only be capitalized unless followed by a name.
    • Done --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • There needs to be a consistency with the use (or not) of the serial comma.
    • Done Been through every damn comma in the article and I think it's been fixed. --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Any images tagged as fair use need to be accompanied by fair use rationales. This is actually a quick-fail criteria, although I don't know why, because they can just be deleted. They are currently hidden, but they will be deleted in 7 days if there is no adequate fair use rationale added.
    • Done Images deleted. --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Several of the quotes use improper grammar. Someone needs to verify these quotes to the source and ensure that it's properly quoted.
    • All the quotes from the Brook-Shepherd book are properly quoted. The rest were added by someone else. --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
      • All the quotes from the books:Empress Zita ,A Heart for Europe and Imperial Twilight are properly quoted. I added them Miguelemejia 23:28, 23 July 2007
    • They also should not be italicized per WP:QUOTE, which I corrected, but those corrections were reverted.
      • Done.That was my attempt at consistency. I wasn't sure whether they should be or not--Lec CRP1
  • Ensure dates are formatted per WP:DATE. I also corrected this, but those corrections were also reverted in many instances.
    • Done --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Redlinks are appropriate as long as they are relevant to the topic (which all in this article are), and as long as they are notable within themselves to have their own article. If the latter is not the case, the wikification needs to be removed.
  • I think "old people's home" could be replaced with something more appropriate.
    • Done--Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • References also need to be consistently formatted. Use WP:CITE as a guide. Spaces, colons, periods, etc. should all be consistent in their use in the refs.
    • For those references which are exactly the same (same page of same book), name the ref.**In the case of the same ref being used multiple times with different page numbers, consider using {{rp}}.
      • I have to admit I'm utterly baffled by references, notes and the formatting and code and tags thereof. I really need help on this. --Lec CRP1
        • Done I helped with that Miguelemejia 01:50, 24 July 2007
          • Thanks. I did try and do it, but the preview came out trashed. Logic is not my strong point --Lec CRP1 02:24, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
  • (unindent) I had almost every ref for Brooks-Shepherd formated using the {{rp}} template when my computer crashed. I could cry. I started it again and did just a few so that hopefully you all can see how it's done. A ref at only one occurrence (typically its first) is written out normally, ie. (ref name="Doe")((cite book |author=Doe, John |title=Words about Jane |etc... )){/ref}((rp|24)) Using brackets and tags, of course. Subsequently it would be (ref name="Doe"/)((rp|26)) - That's it. LaraLove 06:03, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
    • I've followed your example the best I can with all the references. Is this how it's supposed to be done? --Lec CRP1 06:45, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Considering I am not familiar with the topic, I don't understand all aspects of it. This is most likely the case for other readers as well.

  • What does "HI&RM" represent as a title?
    • Her/His Imperial and Royal Majesty. Wikilinked in the infobox.--Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • "In the war that followed, Charles was promoted to General in the Austrian army, taking command of the XXth Corps for an offensive in the South Tyrol." - Is that supposed to read "XXth Coprs" or are the exes place holders?
    • XX is Roman Numerals meaning '20th', I changed it so people didn't get confused as you did--Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • What does "had issues" mean in reference to her children?
    • It means they had children. It's standard terminology in geneology. I've changed it to 'children' to again avoid confusion --Lec CRP1 22:17, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
      • I tell you, I would have never thought that. I'm thinking, "We all have issues. What kind of issues could this possibly be referring to?" As a mother of two, I am frequently frustrated by my children, but I'm not sure I'd refer to them as issues. Interesting to know, however, that it's standard terminology in genealogy, ha. Anyway, I'll look back over the article. LaraLove 05:15, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Because the issues with the article are fairly minor and can be fixed within a few days, I am putting this article on hold for no more than seven days. If you have any questions, bring them up here or on my talk page and I'll help you out. Regards, LaraLove 20:11, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Or, if you would rather undo a great deal of my work that I did to bring the article in accordance with the Manual of Style, which is a GA requirement, I can just fail the nomination and save everyone time and trouble. Let me know which you prefer. LaraLove 20:15, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Good work. The article is now listed as a Good Article. In improving this article, you have improved Wikipedia. LaraLove 16:17, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

GA Sweeps[edit]

This article has been reviewed as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles/Project quality task force. I believe the article currently meets the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article. This article is excellent, and but for the slightly odd form of referencing, would almost certainly make FA. The article history has been updated to reflect this review. Regards, Jackyd101 (talk) 01:20, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I have had an academic colleague totally flummoxed by the bizarre referencing system used in this article. It is neither standard for Wikipedia or anywhere else. It would be far more helpful if, for example, you could see where page 8 of a source was being cited in the article. (talk) 22:39, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
