A barnstar for you![edit]

Really interesting article, thankyou, and congrats on your well-deserved GA! Keep up the great work! ♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 12:45, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Face-smile.svg! It's a very interesting book, and I definitely recommend it if you enjoyed the summary. Thanks again, Hayden120 (talk) 12:56, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
I think it has FA potential. If you are interested in taking to FA at some point I'd be happy to help you.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 13:58, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, that would be excellent! I'm slightly intimidated by the FA process; do you think the article would need to change at all/much to pass? Hayden120 (talk) 15:07, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, FA is gruelling, a lot of editors will throw everything at you and you'll find yourself bending over backwards on the most trivial of issues. However, it is very rewarding if you go through the process working with others and earn an FA at the end of it as so few articles make it. Mother India is my next FA nom. For FA it needs to be as comprehensive and widely sourced as possible, as I haven't researched the book I wouldn't know just how many sources are available but the coverage of the book is more than adequate. Perhaps for FA it would need a bit exploration and analysis of some of the issues discussed in the book from a scientific perspective, I'm not sure, but my own feeling is that this has potential for FA without too much further work and I'm usually right when I've taken articles to FA. I'll ask Tim riley what he thinks, it might be a good idea to peer review it to get some suggestions.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 10:20, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Excellent. I have scoured the internet for sources on Before the Dawn, and I believe that I have included all of the reliable ones available. Before the GA review, I originally included a bit of a background on the issues discussed in the book. The GA review found it to be a synthesis, though, which I think is true in retrospect. To write about issues in the book from a scientific perspective would require that the issues and the book be explicitly mentioned together in scientific sources. Since so few sources are available, it probably would not be feasible. Thanks, Hayden120 (talk) 10:37, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

I've spoken to Tim but he confesses to not be knowledgeable of scientific book FAs and feels it is probably best left at GA for now. However, in light of what you've said, and my own opinion of it and awareness of the standard of other books we have on here I'd say it would be worth opening a peer review and requesting wider input.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 14:53, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Ah, okay. For now I'm quite happy with its GA status, but I'll consider opening a peer review when I'm less busy outside Wikipedia. Many thanks for the help, Hayden120 (talk) 04:27, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
