GA Review[edit]

Nominator support. This article has been substantially expanded, improved, and rewritten. I have submitted it for a copyedit, but I think that with minor changes, it could even qualify for a FA. It has been a FAN in the past, probably prematurely (I wanted to pass it before Angelou's 80th birthday in April), and I've followed the suggestions made at that point. I think it's well-referenced with top-notch sources. I'd like it to go be upgraded to FA in time for the book's 40th anniversary in 2009. --Figureskatingfan (talk) 04:58, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Figureskatingfan, I'm confused as to why you, as the main editor to this article, began the GAC review and added your "support" -- are you reviewing this article? From the GAC page: "you cannot review an article if you have made significant contributions to it prior to the review, nor can you review an article if you are the nominator". Also per the instructions, the reviewer is supposed to begin this review subpage (step two under "How to review an article"). As for the "support", keep in mind that GACs do not work the same way as FACs; there is no support/oppose !votes, only a review from an impartial editor. So...?

Sorry, please chalk it up to carelessness and enthusiasm. I was going by the FAC process; I was also confused by the GAC changes. Please forgive me, and disregard my comments. Oh, and please don't let my stupidity get in the way of this article's review. --Figureskatingfan (talk) 03:39, 17 June 2008 (UTC)


Hello. I'll be reviewing this article, and don't worry...I won't let your stupidity get in the way of this article's review. :) Here are some suggestions for improvement:

Thank you. You're such a dear. ;)
I believe that I've fixed this, by dl'ing another version of the image and replacing it.
  • The image bunching in publication history makes it align in the middle of my screen (just to the left of the infobox). It looks odd, but it might just be my screen (as I have a widescreen comp.).
I think that's probably what's going on. I've tried to use the fixbunching tool, but I haven't been able to tweak it. On my screen, it looks fine. Someone else who knows what they're doing needs to work on it, I suppose.
  • There are several instances of like references in the reference section needing to be combined. For example: 26 and 28; 32 and 33
Fixed, pretty sure that I got all of 'em.

Other than that, this article is very well written. I'll put the article on hold for seven days to allow for these minor improvements. Nikki311 21:32, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much! --Figureskatingfan (talk) 05:21, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Cool. Great job. The image bunching thing isn't a big deal, like I probably is just my screen. Pass. Nikki311 23:56, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
