So there is an extensive article on a cycle centre but no Cycling in the United States article. Balanced content in WP overall is probably more important than acheiving FA status for this article. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 03:09, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't work on Cycling articles. I am the director of WP:CHICAGO and work on Chicago articles. If you would like to bring Cycling in the United States to FA-status you are free to do so. I will continue to work on Chicago articles and as they benefit other projects, I hope those projects will assist.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 03:24, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Wikipedia cannot make editors work on certain topics. Editors will work on topics in which they take an interest. Also, it is harder to write articles about broader subjects. For example, we have 124 Featured articles and 32 Featured lists on video-game-related topics, but the article Video game is in a shoddy state. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:44, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Should these be in quotation marks as they sound like direct quotes: Pro-cycling and environmentalist journalists in publications well beyond the Chicago metropolitan area have described the Cycle Center as "exemplary", "impressive", "unique" and "ground-breaking".Ruhrfisch><>°° 04:43, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Checking refs for the copyedit I saw a photo of the Cycle Center in the dusk, lit from within. It was a really nice shot and I imagine it would not be too hard to duplicate (need a tripod). Would something like that work for the Critical review section (where it is described as gem-like)? I would need to hunt to find the picture, but can if it is needed. Just an idea, Ruhrfisch><>°° 20:55, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks - just to be clear it is no hurry - just saw the area without an image and thought it would be a good shot. Ruhrfisch><>°° 21:11, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
This is something I can definitely do. I'll try to replicate the photo ASAP (and since this is actually a photo at dusk, I can take it after work instead of having to wait until the weekend like usual!). I'll probably wait until this rain finally clears up though, so give me a couple of days. --TorsodogTalk 21:51, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks so much - as I said it is no hurry, but I look forward to seeing the image. Ruhrfisch><>°° 02:40, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I couldn't replicate the photo exactly (I'm not really sure how that got that angle, actually), but I did what I could. Is this what you had in mind? Also, I moved around the images a bit and removed the aerial view that really didn't add anything to the article. Thoughts? --TorsodogTalk 04:27, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I think it looks great - both the new image and the layout. I just thought it would be nice to have an image of the center lit from within at night. I like it better than the one in the website I originally saw - more focus on the center itself. Thanks, Ruhrfisch><>°° 05:10, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I have marked the "If McDonald's is serious, menu needs a makeover" reference as being a dead link. I checked the Wayback Machine, and it doesn't look like there are any archives of the relevant page. The link will need to be removed, but then the citation information for the reference will be insufficient, so the page number in the physical copy of the article in the newspaper will need to be retrieved and added. Do you have access to the physical newspaper, Tony? Neelix (talk) 02:56, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
