Talk:New Jersey Route 38/GA1
Hey Dough, you've been doing some wonders on this article; I don't see much room for improvement should this cross the threshold into GA status, although there are are few things.
Here's what I see:
- The most glaring problem I see with this article, to tell the truth, are all the redlinks. This should be dealt with accordingly; per the redlink guideline, all redlinks that you feel you can create stubs for (that would be expandable and notable, rather than a permastub or something that would end up going meeting WP:CSD) you should. Otherwise, you should remove the redlinks that you cannot create stubs for.
- According to the Route description criterion in the Standards portion of WP U.S. Roads, third-level headers are not necessary when discussing intrastate routes, such as this one. I personally believe that it helps out when organized in this way, so I'll leave the decision up to you.
- Something that mentions how it services the Philadelphia metro area should be added into the article; I am not from New Jersey or Pennsylvania, and I only realized it was in the Philadelphia area when I saw "Camden" listed.
- I understand that the lead can go into "considerable detail," but for an article this size I think three paragraphs is too much. I nominated a city article once with ten sections and placed it up with a three paragraph lead, and I got nailed for it. Is there anything that you can shave off?
Once those are fixed, in my honest opinion, I think this will be ready.
- Cool; it appears that all my concerns have been sufficiently addressed. I hope you do not mind if I call in a mentor to check my review over, and to make sure it is watertight; I am trying to get warmed up to the GA reviewing process. --Starstriker7(Dime algoor see my works) 04:22, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
You're doing well, Starstriker. I also think this article is ready for GA. The only thing that I think could be changed is this:
- "The route is a four– to six–lane divided highway for most of its length and passes through commercial developemnt, residential development, and some farmland." I don't think that the endashes are needed.
