GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

This review is part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles/Project quality task force/Sweeps, a project devoted to re-reviewing Good Articles listed before August 26, 2007.

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    Examples such as "Multiple innovators contributed to the history of the bicycle by developing precursor human-powered vehicles" and "Several why-not-the-rear-wheel inventions followed" are not exactly up to par.
    B. MoS compliance:
    Introduction- Intro is too short, please see WP:LEAD for more info. List incorporation- Lists should be avoided, it is my opinion that the "Uses" section should be presented in prose instead of a list. Construction and parts- A section devoted to a single sentence is most certainly not MOS compliant. The "parts" section also violates this guideline.
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. References to sources:
    B. Citation of reliable sources where necessary:
    Whole paragraphs and sections are uncited.
    C. No original research:
    Uncited statements may contain original research.
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    B. Focused:
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
    Too many images clutter the article.
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
    After careful consideration, it is my opinion that this article should be de-listed immediately. Uncited statements are the issue of major concern, secondary issues include unacceptable prose and image clutter. --ErgoSumtalktrib 22:56, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
