I rated this article a stub class because it is a stub. While it may contain multiple subheaders, that does not mean it is considered a start class. Please refer to this chart. Acidskater 04:40, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I just referred to the criteria that said:

Has at least one serious element of gathered materials, including any one of the following:

  • a particularly useful picture or graphic
  • multiple links that help explain or illustrate the topic
  • a subheading that fully treats an element of the topic
  • multiple subheadings that indicate material that could be added to complete the article

The first, perhaps the second and fourth criteria seemed to fit the bill. CloudNine 06:37, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

I can maybe see the first and fourth, definitly not the second as there are no links in the article(I assume link referring specifically to external links). If you really see it fitting a start rating you can change it but I'm still iffy on it. Either way this article needs a lot of attention, especially from the music venue wikiproject.

I just expanded the types information and now think it to be a start class, mainly fitting the fourth criteria listed. Acidskater 06:53, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

This is coming along really well. Everything still needs expanding but it is a lot better than when first tagged. Keep up the good work! Acidskater 02:12, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

External link[edit]

I do not understand why CloudNine deleted an external link (.. second criteria) to a Music Venue named "The Venue, London" I added on 23 May 2007. Gerdami 19:06, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Because it advertised a specific venue, which was off-topic for the article (otherwise we would have to have a link to every venue in the world; we can't favour specific venues). It would be more suited to the The Venue, London article. CloudNine 19:10, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
I could agree with you. However, when a music venue has actually the name Venue, I thought it had to be quoted. I must add: I am Belgian and I have no interest at all for any advertising... Gerdami 17:50, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
