In the eight years since the last Featured Article Review in 2006, the article has been greatly changed. The 2014 version has the following problems based on Wikipedia:Featured article criteria:

  • Comprehensive. The article fails to tell the reader about significant viewpoints.
  • Neutral. The article fails to represent the balance found in published literature.
  • Lead. The lead section fails to adequately summarize important points found in the article body.

Therefore I am starting a new review to more closely identify problems, and to rectify them. The first part of the process is to compare the present version of the article to past versions, to see what might current text might be changed or deleted, and to see what past text might be restored in some form. The second part of the process is to look at modern writings on the topic and see how the article can be changed to better reflect the literature. Binksternet (talk) 17:42, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

FARC commentary[edit]

The review section attracted extensive commentary, but was inconclusive. I am opening the FARC section to get more focused discussion of whether this article should or should not be an FA. Please keep comments constructive and focused on the FA criteria. Nikkimaria (talk) 01:36, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Delist. I can't support an article that is listed in seven clean-up categories:
Category:Articles to be expanded from March 2014
Category:Articles with inconsistent citation formats
Category:Articles with specifically marked weasel-worded phrases from September 2014
Category:Articles with unsourced statements from January 2014
Category:Articles with unsourced statements from March 2014
Category:Articles with unsourced statements from September 2014
Category:Wikipedia articles needing factual verification from February 2014. DrKiernan (talk) 08:02, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Please specify any remaining unsourced statements and inconsistent citation formats, so that they can be revised accordingly in order to avoid delisting, DrKiernan. JLMadrigal ... 04:29, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
