Checking against GA criteria[edit]

GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    The lead is too short, it should fully summarise the article, see WP:LEAD Not done
    His grandfather from the father side, Ludwik Beynar, fought in the January Uprising, and married a Spanish woman, Joanna Adela Feugas "paternal side"? Done
    His granfather from the mother's side, Wiktor Maliszewski, fought in the November Uprising Spelling "grandfather", "maternal side" Done
    Beynar's family lived in Russia and Ukraine Use the subject name as in the article name. Or move the article to his real name leaving a redirect. Not done
    ...he also worked as a speaker in the Polish Radio Wilno "on" Done
    He also begun his career as the writer and essayist ungrammatical Done
    In 1935 he debuted as an amateur historian Clumsy, suggest simpler "IN 1935 he wrote a book about.... Not done
    In July 1944 he took part in the operation aimed at liberation of Wilno from the Germans "aimed at the liberation..." Not done
    After recovering from his wounds, 1945 Beynar decided to leave the resistance, and instead begun publishing in an independent Catholic weekly "began" Not done
    OK, I am guessing that your first language is not English. You need to get someone to copy-edit this article throughout. It should not have been nominated with this poor prose. You could try the WP:Guild of copyeditors, although their results can be variable - the Poland project may be able to help.
    MoS criteria appear OK
    List of works There should ideally be ISBNs for all post 1974 publications Not done
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    Refs #8 and #9 (same target failed verification.[2]
    Other references check out and appear to be RS, no evidence of OR
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    Reasonable coverage
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  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):
    One image used, with correct license and caption.
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    OK, on hold for seven days for above issues to be addressed. You may wish to consider using Template:Infobox writer in the lead, but this is not a GA criterion. Jezhotwells (talk) 00:54, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
    Still several outstanding issues with the prose so I shall not be listing at this time. Jezhotwells (talk) 16:37, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
  • I fixed the refs and asked others to help with copyediting. I may be a bit busy over the next few days, and will check out your response as soon as I can. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 04:03, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
How is it going, do you want me to take another look? Jezhotwells (talk) 00:34, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
I think we are mostly done, but another day or two may help, if I dig anything else up (just today I stumbled upon a useful web reference, for example). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 01:20, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
OK, I will leave it for a few days. Jezhotwells (talk) 01:22, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
I thought others would've fixed the grammar issues. I addressed the remaining points, with the exception of the first one. Till his name change, I believe he should be referred to under his old (birth) name in the article. As his new name is much better known, the article should not be moved. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:12, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
