Article quality[edit]

Is this original work? -- Zoe

Blimey, yes, I see what you mean. I rather liked "three rude villains and two good fellows" mind you. But it is hardly contemporary English. Come on author, tell us please? :) Nevilley 20:57 Dec 4, 2002 (UTC)

The language doesn't seem appropriate for a Wikipedia article, and is simply confusing in some places. I haven't read the novel, so I'm guessing that a line like "But in the middle of this felicity, Providence unhinged him at once, with the loss of his wife." means that Crusoe's wife died. Will Dockery April 30, 2008 —Preceding comment was added at 08:05, 30 April 2008 (UTC), I'll give you a few days to respond to my comments regarding this. If you don't let us know that this is your own work, I'm going to delete the contents and apply for this article to be deleted. Also, the article just sort of runs out at the end without any denoument. -- Zoe


Sorry about the flurry of edits and saves. I wanted to compare 200.x's latest version with the last save, and could not because of a formatting problem which made each para go on for miles to the right. I didn't realise (until just now) that it was caused by ONE SPACE!! at the start of one para, which makes it go into fixed width and affects the whole layout. I hope that the last thing I did, of reverting to Zoe's last (the 2nd ever save) and then to 200's last (the 3rd save) has been helpful in making it possible once again to compare the two.

Finally I note that 200 has supplied loads more content but not replied to Zoe's query about the source, which would have been very helpful and interesting. Nevilley 18:05 Dec 10, 2002 (UTC)

The author is Zoltan Simon, zasimon/at/hotmail/dot/com, and he has contributed original works by himself to Wikipedia. --Eloquence 11:47 Apr 22, 2003 (UTC)

Name of page[edit]

This page is misnamed. It should be the Farther Adventures, not the Further Adventures. See original title page I downloaded onto the page. Awadewit Talk 08:05, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
