GA Re-Review and In-line citations[edit]

Note: This article has a very small number of in-line citations for an article of its size and currently would not pass criteria 2b.
Members of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles are in the process of doing a re-review of current Good Article listings to ensure compliance with the standards of the Good Article Criteria. (Discussion of the changes and re-review can be found here). A significant change to the GA criteria is the mandatory use of some sort of in-line citation (In accordance to WP:CITE) to be used in order for an article to pass the verification and reference criteria. It is recommended that the article's editors take a look at the inclusion of in-line citations as well as how the article stacks up against the rest of the Good Article criteria. GA reviewers will give you at least a week's time from the date of this notice to work on the in-line citations before doing a full re-review and deciding if the article still merits being considered a Good Article or would need to be de-listed. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us on the Good Article project talk page or you may contact me personally. On behalf of the Good Articles Project, I want to thank you for all the time and effort that you have put into working on this article and improving the overall quality of the Wikipedia project.

GA Reassessment[edit]

This discussion is transcluded from Talk:Social contract (Malaysia)/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the reassessment.

I'm reviewing this article for GA sweeps. After looking through it, I'm finding several major issues:

  • Most of the citations are deadlinks. Clean them up per [1].
  • The amount of citing is poor. 13 inline cites in the whole article is unacceptable. At least a citation per paragraph is needed.

I'll put this on hold for five days. If progress is made I'll give a full review. If not the article will be delisted. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 03:29, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

No progress, so article delisted. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 14:14, 25 February 2010 (UTC)


Please be reminded that non-Malays does mean more than Chinese and Indian communities, it can be Orang Asli, Siam, Serani, Bumiputera of Sabah and Sarawak who are most of them being non-Muslims. The term non-Malays depicted in this article do not refer to the races I've mentioned, instead it has more emphasize towards Chnese and Indian communities. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pinangjawa (talkcontribs) 01:44, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

"Socio-Economic Apartheid"[edit]

While no-outright violence occurs against non-Malays, Non-Malays are being subject to a form of economic apartheid and until recently, a negative social-apartheid based on propaganda war of disenfranchisement and demoralisation which was quite pointed. The non-Malays assented to 15 years of Special Privileges for Malays, 4 times the period have passed and no review was made as promised after the 1st 15 years. Minority politicians in the mainstream BN coalition have been bought off and will not address this apartheid, while opposition PR coalition (partly bonded with, of all things LGBT hate, excepting PKR party) has chosen to (or fearfully decided to) use racism of the existing Malay electorate to their advantage by not addressing apartheid either. A 3rd Force political coalition is in formation that may address this to raise all citizens to equals and do away with the Special Privileges which have become a rent seeking system that parasites off all malaysian with the bulk of monies going into GLC crony proxies and Vehicular AP or Toll Booth type laws.
