This article is in decent shape, but it needs more work before it becomes a Good Article.|}}

  1. Is it well written?
    A. The prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct:
    {{subst:#if:In the Plot, "When Bart discovers Lisa busking on a street corner, and offers to help her kick her pin-collecting addiction", is the "and" needed? In the Production section, this is me, but, this sentence ---> "...feel that the exposure the sport will receive will be beneficial", reads odd.
    Check.|In the Plot, "When Bart discovers Lisa busking on a street corner, and offers to help her kick her pin-collecting addiction", is the "and" needed? In the Production section, this is me, but, this sentence ---> "...feel that the exposure the sport will receive will be beneficial", reads odd.
    Check.|}}
    B. It complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation:
    {{subst:#if:Question: Why isn't "Bart" linked in the Plot? In the Reception section, "With or without the timeliness of the story and setting, "Boy Meets Curl" was a fast and funny episode certain to be a highlight of the season" ---> "With or without the timeliness of the story and setting, 'Boy Meets Curl' was a fast and funny episode certain to be a highlight of the season". Same section, "The A.V. Club" needs to be italicized.

  2. Is it verifiable with no original research?
    A. It contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{2acom}}}|}}
    B. All in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{2bcom}}}|}}
    C. It contains no original research:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{2ccom}}}|}}
    D. It contains no copyright violations nor plagiarism: [[File:|16px|alt=|link=]]
    {{subst:#if:|{{{2dcom}}}|}}
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. It addresses the main aspects of the topic:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{3acom}}}|}}
    B. It stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style):
    {{subst:#if:|{{{3bcom}}}|}}
  4. Is it neutral?
    It represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{4com}}}|}}
  5. Is it stable?
    It does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{5com}}}|}}
  6. Is it illustrated, if possible, by images?
    A. Images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{6acom}}}|}}
    B. Images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{6bcom}}}|}}
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
    {{subst:#if:Not that much to do! If the concerns above can be answered, I will pass the article. Good luck with improving this article!|Not that much to do! If the concerns above can be answered, I will pass the article. Good luck with improving this article!|}}

You are welcome for it, just doing my part. Thank you to Scorpion for getting the stuff I left at the talk page, because I have gone off and placed the article as GA. Congrats. ;) --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 15:47, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Factual errors[edit]

I believe the article should be edited to highlight glaring factual errors, such as the announcement of nations as 'not competing but observing', and the inclusion of a women's pole vault competition in the 1952 games. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.64.134.67 (talk) 11:31, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean with the first part, but you are right about the second part. There were no pole vault event for women in 1952 (only men). --Maitch (talk) 12:36, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
