Good article nomination on hold[edit]

This article's Good Article promotion has been put on hold. During review, some issues were discovered that can be resolved without a major re-write. This is how the article, as of September 14, 2010, compares against the six good article criteria:

1. Well written?: Writing appears pretty good, at least, good enough for GA at this time. Would strongly suggest a peer review prior to going forward with other steps, where editors should enlist the help of previously-uninvolved-copyeditors.
That's good advice, I will most definately request a peer review or two before FAC.
2. Factually accurate?: Duly cited throughout. Per WP:LEADCITE, citations can be moved out of the lede/intro, and defaulted down to the main body text of the article itself. Note: I have added a few {{fact}} tags, these must be addressed.
I removed the cites from the lede.
I addressed the cite tags, and added proper citations.
3. Broad in coverage?: Roger_Waters#Achievements seems a tad bit odd, unless this can be shown to have been used at a few WP:FAs, I would suggest something like a table such as at the FA article, Cillian Murphy, working it into the main body text, like at the FA, Maynard James Keenan, and Kylie Minogue, or better yet, a different table, like at the FA John Mayer.
I worked the achievements section into text.
4. Neutral point of view?: See above, regarding Achievements sect, for different style presentation.
5. Article stability? No recent issues upon inspection of article edit history, aside from some IPs to keep an eye on. Question: Please state here a brief description of the talk page conflict I spotted which was commented on in the prior GA Review, and if this has been resolved to satisfaction of the parties?

"Please state here a brief description of the talk page conflict", the party that was making the arguement that Waters never left Floyd was soon banned for similar reasons. The last comment on the article's talk page was July 21, 2010.
6. Images?:
Removed image, replaced it with one from commons.
It is already there, I just cropped it to fit. Should I still upload a redundant image already on commons? — GabeMc (talk) 23:05, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
  • File:Coachella pigstage.jpg - Image missing verification of permission. This image must be removed, and/or the permission issue resolved.
Removed image, replaced it with one from commons.
Removed image, replaced it with one from commons.

Please address these matters soon and then leave a note here showing how they have been resolved. After 48 hours the article should be reviewed again. If these issues are not addressed within 7 days, the article may be failed without further notice. Thank you for your work so far. -- Cirt (talk) 20:13, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
