Piccadilly Circus[edit]

Self-nomination (kind of). Reasonably stable topic, should meet FA criteria. --JuntungWu 06:37, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Support I enjoyed reading this. It's a good length, well-written, good references section, nicely illustrated. One small point: when you quote Dickens' son, it would be good to know where you're taking it from. You have the Dickens's Dictionary of London in the references section, so I assume it's from there; my own preference is to say e.g. In his Dickens's Dictionary of London, Dickens wrote that . . . But that's just a suggestion, not an objection. Also, I believe you wrote Dickens Dictionary," but apparently it's Dickens's. [1] SlimVirgin 07:46, Mar 6, 2005 (UTC)
No you didn't: you had it right. SlimVirgin 07:48, Mar 6, 2005 (UTC)
Comment: The "correct" writing of singular possessives ending in -s has been, and still is, the cause of numerous religious wars between punctuational sticklers everywhere. Tread carefully and don't feed the zealots! ;-) --Plek 14:11, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Object, I'm afraid. This article looks very good, comprehensive, and is nicely illustrated. However, I think it needs a map to show where Piccadilly Circus is in London. Jeronimo 18:30, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Do you want a map relative to London boroughs, or geographic, or a street map? JuntungWu 06:00, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Support — This article is about the right length and is written in a good, readable style. I agree that a map would be an important addition, as many readers will find it difficult to place Piccadilly Circus by the geographical referrences in the text (however obvious they seem to be). Take a look at Wikipedians/Cartographers for assistance. Gareth Hughes 11:56, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Not sure about this sentence: "It is topped by Alfred Gilbert's winged nude statue, officially known The Angel of Christian Charity the mythical Greek God of Love. It is popularly known as Eros." Should this be : "It is topped by Alfred Gilbert's winged nude statue, officially known The Angel of Christian Charity. It is popularly known as Eros after the mythical Greek God of Love" or "It is topped by Alfred Gilbert's winged nude statue, officially known The Angel of Christian Charity the mythical Greek God of Love. It is popularly known as Eros." Otherwise support. Grinner 12:07, Mar 7, 2005 (UTC)
  • I'll change it to the former. JuntungWu 05:29, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)
