The Signpost: 23 July 2014[edit]

Your GA nomination of The Harrowing (Inside No. 9)[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article The Harrowing (Inside No. 9) you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. 23W 21:35, 26 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi J, I'm afraid your help on "His Last Vow" was so good I've come to ask you something else... Please can you give Ernest Radcliffe Bond a thorough going over/tell me issues as if it was a peer review, as I would really like to get him to FA sometime. I would be happy to review Inside No. 9 if you wanted in return (bearing in mind I am currently doing a GA review for a Cup contestant)? Thanks, Matty.007 16:13, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Matty.007- I'll certainly take a look, but it's not a subject I know anything about. Small world, though, as I'm currently visiting my parents, so I'm actually staying only a few miles from Barrow, where Bond was born. J Milburn (talk) 14:57, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Do you want me to review Inside No. 9 at some point? Thanks, Matty.007 16:03, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
I certainly wouldn't object- it's been in the queue a long time! J Milburn (talk) 16:06, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid it may be a few weeks, but if it's still there I'll definitely take a look (taking a holiday from 15 August till end of month so want to get points for things before then). Thanks, Matty.007 18:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Primary Colours (Eddy Current Suppression Ring album)[edit]

I have addressed most of the concerns left from your GA review. It seems I can never remember how hard it is to pass a GA nomination! If you could have another look and tell me if you still think anything needs to be changed, that would be great. Jinkinson talk to me 00:43, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the comments on my talk, most of which I have now addressed as well--I uploaded a better cover image, expanded the reception section, and added the missing person under "personnel" I had a hard time finding interviews, though. Do you think it's ready for another GA nomination now? Jinkinson talk to me 19:17, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Apologies for the delay. I'm taking a look now, and will hopefully get back to you later. J Milburn (talk) 18:35, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Jinkinson: I still don't think it'd sail through GAC, but it's much better. Here are a few more things you may want to change:

  • Original release date in the lead?
  • So it was released only in those three countries? That's what "finally" implies.
  • Two paragraphs of lead would probably be best.
  • Don't be scared of redlinks- if the topic's notable, link away. (See WP:REDLINK)
  • "They recorded Primary Colours in a single day—from August 3 to 4, 2007—" ??
  • There's a little editorialising, which potentially compromises neutrality. "in just four hours" and "a cost of only", for example.
  • Also be aware of undefined jargon- 8-track, overdub, guitar chopping
  • You've got some very short sections- most album articles don't need a whole section for the title or the release.
  • "colors are made by combining primary colours" What's the Australian spelling?
  • ""It's like sounds as well - drums and guitars - you get four dudes together and they come up with this," he added.[7]" Editorialising.
  • Be aware of MOS:LQ
  • The Fall and The Pixies, surely

Feel free to strike/reply inline/whatever. I think it would now probably be best for me not to be the GA reviewer if you renominate so that you can hear another voice. J Milburn (talk) 19:30, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
