Final comments[edit]

Several problems that I notice, need a hard work, so I put the article on hold on until June 28, 2010. (UTC) TbhotchTalk C. 18:30, 7 June 2010 (UTC)


Thank you for this very informative review. I've gone through (and i think i've addressed the issues). Lil-unique1 (talk) 18:30, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

  • I'll tick (Yes check.svg) what was done, I'll cross (Pictogram voting delete.svg) what still wrong. TbhotchTalk C. 18:41, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Many things were done, several more were ignored also new changes generated some typos throughout. I extended the revision time until June 27. TbhotchTalk C. 19:29, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry i wasnt aware of the latter issues, just been through and copyeditted the article. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 20:45, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
Well, all(most) comments were resolved, I'll check it again in case I forgot something. TbhotchTalk C. 22:16, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Further comments[edit]

  • Lead
WP:ALT -> Personally, "Whitney Houston" written in the alternative caption text, is too specific, maybe "an afro-american woman" or "a woman with wavy hair" or something like that, of course I won't fail the article for this comment. TbhotchTalk C. 02:09, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
then August 31, 2009 -> typo
...based on an aggregate score of 70/100 from... I noticed that this is not on the "Critical Reception" section.
beating her previous career best first-week sale of 205,000 units with Just Whitney (2002). -> beating her previous career best first-week sale of 205,000 units with Just Whitney (2002) in the chart.
  • Background
In February 2009, Houston made her official public comeback at Davis's "Pre-Grammy Gala", her first major live appearance since 2004 -> Source does not says that
Ref 2 has a typo: (E!Online)
rousing -> WP:Peacock?
Ref 1 and 6 need consistency.
  • Music
R. Kelly contributed two songs -> Did you mean R. Kelly contributed writing two songs
In the song Houston -> In the song, Houston
Reference 10 has a typo (Latest activity 2 days ago).
Also released in UK and US -> Consistency needed
Houston hosted a listening party with Clive Davis in New York -> Davis was already mentioned.
and Vivica A. Fox[12] as well as many representatives from the American press -> Source?
September 14 and 15 and featured -> September 14 and 15, and featured
On October 18, Houston performed "Million Dollar Bill" live on -> Since "Million Dollar Bill" was used in the last line, perhaps -> On October 18, Houston performed the same song live on
Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany,[23] Switzerland,[24] Austria,[25] Belgium,[26] Italy[24] and Australia.[27] -> Germany,[23] Italy, Switzerland,[24] Austria,[25] Belgium,[26] and Australia.[27] and do not need Wikilinks and remove unsorced countries.
  • Singles
"Million Dollar Bill" which was written and produced by Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz was -> "Million Dollar Bill", which was written and produced by Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, was
giving Houston her 13th number-one dance single -> Source
was originally lined up to be the lead single, but was succeeded by the album's title song. -> I'm confused, didn't was "Million Dollar Bill" which was released as the first official lead single, morover, where is the source?
Furthermore, following its performance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the song charted at number 66 on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. -> source?
on the UK X Factor which resulted in the song charting at number 38 and 44 on Irish Singles Chart and UK Singles Chart respectively.[32] It also charted on the Japan Hot 100 at number 16.[33] -> why it is italicized?
"Nothin' But Love" was set to be released as the album's third single to coincide with the tour but was only released to UK radio stations. --> [citation needed]
  • Commercial Success
week sales of 51,632 -> full stop missed

I've re-reviewed the article, those are new problems. TbhotchTalk C. 02:09, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

I have done half of these. Aim to do the rest tomorrow and day after. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 15:49, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

I am failing the article, I'd gave it a final date (28 June), and it is today. If you feel this is in error, you may request a Good article reassessment or a re-nomination. TbhotchTalk C. 19:06, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Why is there a time limit on this process? If Lil-unique1 finishes this up 4 hours from now, why can't it be a GA? Does the "G" spoil if it's not put back in the refrigerator right away?
And anyway, it's still the 28th as I write this, an hour after you rang the terminal buzzer, so the deadline you picked (from where?) hasn't even passed yet. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 21:07, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
As I said before If you feel this is in error, you may request a Good article reassessment or a re-nomination. I'd been waiting 3 weeks and Lil is busy with another article. TbhotchTalk C. 22:08, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Sheesh! Sorry if i cant be on wikipedia as much as I'd like to. I didn't realise GA's were specifically time-restrained. It takes time to search for appropriate sources and to fix deadlinks. But nevermind... i'll work on it in my leisure and nominate when I feel that I've done all I can that way I don't have to feel pressured to work towards a deadline.
