The Unsourced tag and Expand tag are obvious, the NPOV tag is because there are many claims which do not fit into NPOV, like "most prestigious" and "recognizing the brightest minds". Acidskater (talk) 13:47, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I've tried to source most of the statements in the article and have removed any claim that is not a quotation from an article or a society document. Is this sufficient to remove NPOV? Tjarrett (talk) 20:20, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Nice job. I think this should be expanded in a lot of places. The Raven Award could definitely use more information on how they define "outstanding" as well as any famous recipients or famous members of the society (not sure if there are any, but being over a hundred years old there must be at least a handful of notable recipients/members).

I've now added a partial list of notable recipients of the award. I think other cleanup that needs doing would include:
  • Poe related activities e.g. sponsorship of the first production of his only play Politian
  • Notable members
  • Other historical information
  • Perhaps, society traditions
