Copyvio[edit]

Most of the Manager section is a copyright violation taken from the team's official website. As per WP:COPYVIO infringing content should be removed so I commented it out. --> Chris Ssk talk 22:22, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

Why was this article moved to Kenny Roberts Sr.? I would argue that Kenny Roberts (the motorcycle racer) is far more well known than Kenny Roberts (the country singer). A simple search on Google yields a lot more results for the racer. There should be a page called Kenny Roberts (disambiguation) with Kenny Roberts being the racer's article, much the same way Brian Williams is the article for the journalist and Brian Williams (disambiguation) lists the "lesser known" Brian Williams'. People searching for "Kenny Roberts" are likely looking for the racer. ♫ ψadems ♫ (talk) 23:28, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

If there is more than one Kenny Roberts in Wikipedia, there should be a disambig page. Steelbeard1 (talk) 01:18, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Wadems and have reverted this move, because it created a big mess; almost all the articles (100+) linking to Kenny Roberts were looking for the motorcycle racer (Sr.) and now suddenly pointed to a dab page (see Special:WhatLinksHere/Kenny Roberts). Which article the majority of readers are expecting to see when they type "Kenny Roberts" in the search box and hit Go? Since his son is primarily known as Roberts Jr., and Roberts is the primary meaning over the musician with the same name, linking the dab page as a hatnote in this article makes sense to me. Another solution would be to use {{two other uses}} and skip the dab page until there is a fourth meaning. If you still think the dab page should be at Kenny Roberts, I suggest starting a requested move. Prolog (talk) 03:54, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

I will begin this review shortly. MathewTownsend (talk) 01:30, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

GA review-see WP:WIAGA for criteria (and here for what they are not)

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose: clear and concise, correct spelling and grammar:
    B. Complies with MoS for lead, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation:
    *"and as a racing team owner and constructor" in lede - what does this mean "constructor"? constructor of teams?
    *The result of his earlier application of the throttle was that, he was able to attain top speed faster than his competitors. - Suggestion: Because of his early application of the throttle, he was able to attain top speed faster than his competitors?
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. Provides references to all sources:
    B. Provides in-line citations from reliable sources where necessary:
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Main aspects are addressed:
    B. Remains focused:
  4. Does it follow the neutral point of view policy.
    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:
    *one fair-use
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
  • Very nice article. I have only a few nit-picks. I made the following edits which I think were needed.[24]
  • I will put this on hold for seven days. MathewTownsend (talk) 01:36, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
  • All nit-picks fixed. Article passes GA. Congratulations! MathewTownsend (talk) 20:33, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

Thanks for your help. I've made the edits you suggested (clarified the definition of constructor). Since this is my first GA nomination, I'm not sure what edits I am supposed to make on this page.Orsoni (talk) 04:46, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Nothing further is required from you. It's listing as a GA will happen now. MathewTownsend (talk) 04:07, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
