the section on sections in the girls' brigade only applies to certain countries. putting them there makes it seems like it's the same across all countries. it's very obvious that it's following the england and wales system, where companies are based in churches. for example, in singapore, the companies are based in schools and the syllabus and sections are different. in that case, how do i change it? anyone has any suggestions?

i think renaming this as a youth organisation is better than putting it under scouting. the girls' brigade is not a scout organisation.

i've changed the names of the links to The Girls' Brigade <country>. The Girls' Brigade is not like the Boys' Brigade where they use The Boys' Brigade IN <country>. Mindlesslysiao 13:01, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

The Scouting Wikiproject has in it a large number of youth organisations that in part follow the Scouting method. It is also a very active project so keeping this article in that project is likely to lead to more support, interest etc than taking it out. There is no project for youth organisations in general and some of the list artciles of youth organisations (I forget their name) are a real mess.

GA comments[edit]

A few statements were unsourced, please source them. Please sort the section according to their importance: for example, "Girls' Brigade principles" seems to be more important than "Sections in Girls' Brigade". Also, maybe "Motto" and "Girls' Brigade principles" could be merged (?).

Please also fix the lead of the article per WP:Lead, "The lead should be capable of standing alone as a concise overview of the article, establishing context, explaining why the subject is interesting or notable, and briefly describing its notable controversies, if there are any. It should be between one and four paragraphs long, should be carefully sourced as appropriate, and should be written in a clear and accessible style so that the reader is encouraged to read the rest of the article. Small details that appear in the full article should be avoided in favor of a very brief overview of the article." --Aminz 07:55, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Also, please add more images. A small version of the "The Girls' Brigade crest" might be appropriate in front of its relevant section. --Aminz 07:59, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Good work BTW! --Aminz 08:02, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I can see many improvements. If you think it is easy, can you please add some statistical information about the Girls' Brigade (e.g. number of members, some statistics on its achievements, funding sources, etc etc); if it has been commended by any organization/person, that information would be also very useful. Cheers, --Aminz 09:35, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Asics, in the "International" section, I can see some numbers written in front of countries (e.g. Botswana (149), Ghana (6000), etc etc.) What does these numbers mean? (number of members?) Can you please provide some explanation for that. Thanks --Aminz 10:09, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Okay. One last thing. I think we are giving undue weight to the "Arise" project in the intro. Can you please make a section on Girls' Brigade's projects and move the stuff there. Also, please add a shorter summary of the project to the intro. Thanks.

Also, as soon as you reference the unsourced sentences, we can upgrade the article to the GA staus. --Aminz 07:43, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

I can't find any citation for the South Africa Conference, so I will leave it out for know. However, I know it is 100% true, but wp:or forbids this, so I will wait until I can find some citation. Apart from that, I believe it is as good as it could be! Asics talk Editor review! 18:07, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Some of the images need fair use rationales, without them, the article can't pass as a GA. --Nehrams2020 00:07, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Are the rationales alright now, I think that's what was needed? Asics talk Editor review! 18:00, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

I think this article passes the GA criteria. Congratulations!! --Aminz 07:10, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Girls Brigade.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Girls Brigade.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
