Hopefully this article is going to have a hard time in this nomination. Abisharan (talk) 21:55, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Maybe the article is excellent, I don't know, but FAC rules state that "Nominators who are not significant contributors to the article should consult regular editors of the article prior to a nomination." Was this done? Brianboulton (talk) 22:32, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Oppose: Further to my remark, above, a quick check using the toolbox on the right reveals a great many dead links, evidence that the article has not been prepared for FAC against the Featured Article criteria. Request withdrawal. Brianboulton (talk) 22:41, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Also noting External link farm that needs pruning, bare URLs in citations, inconsistent date formats in citations, newspapers not in italacs-- suggest a peer review. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 00:02, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
