I am nominating this for featured list because I have made substantial changes to the list and numbering, something that I was responsible the first time around. Substantial changes have been made to the listing, and the current list takes in consideration both local and international audiences, explaining all the intricacies that revolve around the history of the Office of the President. Having this list be a Featured List would provide a guide for the improvement of over 100 articles related to the presidency and the president of Colombia (presidents, vice presidents, designates, first ladies, etc). I'm also hoping that by going through this process, issues that may have escaped me can be addressed, and that other more experienced users can suggest changes or improvements. mijotoba (talk) 03:19, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
No need to list what redirects there unless there's a disambiguation to be noted.
The lead gives the impression this is a random list related to places named Columbia, I presume that some continuity of existence is seen by the current Colombia that goes back to 1819 but it is not clear why these should not be seperate lists.
In the image caption it uses the term administration can it be made clearer is this just the Presidents office or something bigger, not sure you need current it is not very encyclopedic, perhaps something like official residence since 19XX.
RoC 1819-1831 the first sentence mentions the consititution of 1831 taking effect in 1821 which is a bit confusing.
RoC 1819-1831 has 1819-1831 in the title then starts to use 1821-1831 was a bit confusing.
Not sure about the big blue blocks used table cells, I can see that they are not applicable but are very distracting.
RoC 1886 "For Colombian leaders before this, see the above lists." not sure it is needed as it is a bit obvious.
I did get a bit confused about acting presidents and why they exist but that may be down to my ignorance of South American politics and government!
An interesting article but it gets a bit wordy in places, it may be my lack of previous knowledge on the subject but I will have another read later in the week and see if I have any mnore comment. MilborneOne (talk) 19:46, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Hi MilborneOne, thanks for the comment. It is true the lead was confusing, because someone changed it from the original, I changed it back so the lead should make sense now if you want to take a look at it. And yes, the Presidential system in Colombia is very confusing, I myself had to navigate through dozens of books to understand it properly, and that is why it is a bit wordy, because there are some people who are mistakenly called "president of Colombia" when they actually never held the title, so the individual leads is to avoid any controversy, and to clarify why the individuals included or excluded are so. mijotoba (talk) 20:17, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
We don't start lists with "This is a list..." any more (haven't done for a couple of years now).
Lead is too short and should summarise the whole list.
Tables need to meet WP:ACCESS, particularly with regard to MOS:DTT which allows screenreaders to announce the table. I suggest these complex tables are reviewed by an expert, perhaps User:RexxS if you can get the time from him?
Large paragraphs of text are entirely unreferenced.
Not sure about the mix of normal and small font, what's the point?
What does an entirely grey cell represent?
Using colours alone for the party representation is another contravention of MOS, per MOS:COLOUR.
Large blocks of unreferenced text, most of which is not a summary of the referenced tables
No explanation given in the lead as to why these distinct administrative regions are in fact continuations of the same Columbian state
Lead does not summarize the text/tables
Poor distinctions between acting presidents and regular ones- the first one is mentioned as being elected in the text, and the second one is not even mentioned. I'm confused as to what "acting presidents" are supposed to be, and the text isn't helping
If there is nothing in a cell, it should have a — there, not a eye-catching gray block
I don't like how the presidents have their birth-death dates beneath their names, in the same format that the vice presidents and acting presidents have their reigns
The living former presidents section seems out of place
