Neighbours?[edit]

Did I not read somewhere that the businesses adjacent to the fish bar were annoyed at the long queues that snaked from it on the weekend, hampering access to their premises? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.45.132.96 (talk) 13:48, 12 February 2007 (UTC).

This article looks like an advert. --Nicholas 14:33, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
I disagree. It has a long history and is well known enough than a simply chip shop.

GA failed[edit]

I have failed this article according to the GA criteria. Although the article has no grammar or POV issues, it fails the broad requirement. The article is equivalent to a start at best and needs more expansion to qualify for GA. Consider getting a peer review for some people to suggest what other sections could be added or expanded upon. One section that could be added is History: when was it built, type of architecture, etc. It would also benefit on more inline citations for information that may be questionable to the reader. It's great that you have a free image for the article, but maybe see if you can also get one of the interior of the restaurant as well. This isn't a requirement, but would help to enhance the article. Once the article is expanded further to meet the broad requirement, and has addressed the rest of the criteria, please consider renominating again. If you think that this review is in error, see Wikipedia:Good article review. Let me know on my talk page if you have any questions. --Nehrams2020 04:20, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Pictures might theoretically be possible - although I'd have to take them personally, and explain to the owners why. I'm not up for that. The rest of the requirement, well, in theory that's great, in practice, no reliable sources exist. So, I guess either the GA requirements suck, or the implicit intention is that certain articles, even when the best they can be, intrinsically are unfitting for GA. Oh well.--Docg 07:16, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Edinburgh "blog"[edit]

Please can people stop removing links to this without discussion. Yes, I'm well aware that WP:EL says links to blogs are "discouraged". However:

  1. We don't mindlessly apply guidelines are hard and fast rules. We decide what helps the reader. So, please make a case either way.
  2. Blogging is discouraged (but not prohibited) in links as it is notoriously unreliable, and biased, however, although this site is called "The Edinburgh blog" it is in fact not really a blog but a substantial and useful source of local tourist information.
  3. The links are NOT being offered as sources. They are being offered as places the reader can go for further information. Nothing in the article relies on them. (Although given that some of the other sources are unqualified journalists in tabloid newspapers, the Edinburgh Blog is probably just as reliable.

Oh, and I have no vested interest here, this is not my website. If someone can make a sane arguement as to why these links are better removed fine. I'm happy to be convinced that they weaken the article, but please make a case and don't just revert mindlessly per some guideline. Thanks.--Troikoalogo (talk) 22:01, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
