    Article is stable.
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:


  • Some captions have full stops, while other do not. Ensure that this is consistent.
ALl should now have full stops. Dr. Blofeld White cat 11:54, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • "(First century AD is also mentioned)" - What does this mean?
Nvvchar has addressed this. Dr. Blofeld White cat 12:01, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • There are punctuation issues. Long sentences need proper punctuation.
I've reduced a lot of them and have merged some of the problematic short sentences into one. if you can still spot any problematic ones that I missed please be specific. Dr. Blofeld White cat 11:56, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Numbers greater than nine should be written numerically.
Nvvchar has addressed this. Dr. Blofeld White cat 12:01, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • There are low-level grammar issues, e.g. "...Airavata in Sanskrit language...", "...also mentioned as images of Hindu god Shiva...", etc.
I believe Nvvchar has addressed this. Dr. Blofeld White cat 12:01, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • "Now, it is part of the Mandalay city." - What does this mean?
Removed. I think he meant it was once outside the city but the city grew through urban sprawl. Dr. Blofeld White cat 11:32, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • "After the fall of the monarchy, under British rule folowing the annexation of Upper Burma in 1885, and to this day the deep veneration of the Mahamuni image has continued among pilgrims of the region; the Rakhine, Mon and Burmans constitute the main pilgrims." - There are major grammar issues with the construction of this sentence.
reworded considerably. Dr. Blofeld White cat 11:32, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Measurements need to be converted, see WP:CONVERT.
Nvvchar has addressed this. Dr. Blofeld White cat 12:02, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • (" Book of Conditional Relations..." - Extra spacing before "Book".
I reworded that sentence anyway. Dr. Blofeld White cat 11:56, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
  • References are not complete, e.g. Schober.
The references are complete. Looking at featured articles like Ming Dynasty. It is appropriate so only list the author and book page in the notes and then list the book in the bibliography below. This is accepted and is actually the way it should be done. Dr. Blofeld White cat 10:01, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, my fault. I somehow missed it on the bottom. It is fine as it is. -- S Masters (talk) 10:05, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Summary: This article has the potential to become a Good Article. However, it has numerous issues (listed above) that need to be resolved first. I will allow up to seven days for these issues to be addressed, before making any further decision.

Hi. Thanks for your comments. Hopefully it can be improved in the comming week. Dr. Blofeld White cat 15:21, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

OK, please let me know once all of the changes have been completed. Thanks. -- S Masters (talk) 10:48, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Refs added. Should be OK now. Dr. Blofeld White cat 12:34, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
