I will review this article. StringTheory11 04:46, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

I am sorry, but I will have to quick-fail this article due to a SEVERE lack of sources and bad prose. I feel that I have to downgrade this article to a C, which I have done. StringTheory11 18:01, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    B. MoS compliance for lead, layout, words to watch, fiction, and lists:
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. References to sources:
    B. Citation of reliable sources where necessary:
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    B. Focused:
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
    Requesting semi-protection due to vandalism
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:

A few preliminary points to work on:

  • There is a citation needed in the lead. This will need to be fixed.
  • The references in the "further reading" section are not complete.
  • Refs 1, 2, 8, 10-13, and 17 need to be more than bare URLs.
  • Many refs need access dates.
  • This article has many unreferenced paragraphs. I am of the opinion that every paragraph should have at least one reference before an article is a GA.
  • I would rename "sources" to "natural sources", and move all artificial source info into "production". Also, the section needs to be expanded.
  • Many subsections in "intrinsic properties" are too short to comfortably be sections. I believe that if a section only has one paragraph, it is not worthy of a section. Either expand these or merge then with other sections.
  • "Neutron compounds" should be a subsection of "intrinsic properties".

More to come later. StringTheory11 04:21, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
