GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:1st Brigade, 7th Infantry Division (United States)/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.


There's some confusion about the brigade numbers; they should be 13th and 14th. And clarify that the brigade HQs were not active from 1940 until the division was reorganized under ROAD. Other than that looks good. Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 15:52, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Fixed both. -Ed!(talk) 02:05, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
This sentence needs to be fixed on all 3 articles. By 1994, the garrison closed the Division subsequently relocated to Fort Lewis, Washington. And the other comments that I copied from the 3rd Brigade article: There's some confusion with tenses and stuff regarding the BRAC plan for the division and what actually happened. I think that the 2nd and 3rd Brigades formally deactivated in 1993 at Ft. Ord, while the division deactivated later. Is that correct? If so please clarify that in the article.

Lot of content removed after GAN review[edit]

@Sturmvogel 66, Ed!, and Buckshot06: The article is fairly good enough while it was reviewed at GAN in 2009, but after that a lot of prose content from the article was removed. I am very much concerned about present state of the article compared to revision reviewed at GAN.--Regards, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk • mail) 16:11, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Buckshot06 removed the material because it was not about the brigade itself but rather about the wider operations of the 7th Division. I some of the removal was justified as such information should be only on the main division article. However, I question the necessity of removing information about the actions of the division headquarters in the World Wars, given that HQ 7th Infantry Division is part of the brigade lineage.

I'll take a look at this later.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 18:47, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
This is a question of whether the article follows the official lineage of 1st Bde, 7th ID, or the formation that is the article title. That is why I would have removed the data about the division HQ - the data should be at the division page. This is an issue we've just faced at 90th Guards Tank Division and numerous USAF articles. The approach is inconsistent across en:WP. Hope this explains why I did what I did, and open to comments and thoughts. Happy New Year!! Buckshot06 (talk) 20:06, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
