Former good article University of Nottingham was one of the Social sciences and society good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Couple of changes[edit]

I have moved the pic of the downs to the bottom of the page as it was causeing a gap to appear between paragraphs. I have also included the name 'London University' in the info box so people reailise that it was a university prior to 1948.

Article Tone[edit]

Aside from a few controversies at the bottom, this article feels more like something written by Nottingham's PR department than a wikipedia or other encyclopedia article. The article is full of unverifiable value statements and PR-style text. Nottingham is "leading". A recent architect who designed buildings for Nottingham is "great". "Nottingham's research excellence was confirmed". "Family-friendly". "Unique". "a year-round programme of high quality". "prized and unique". "hospitality spaces specifically designed to be flexible enough for a variety of needs.". Obviously, any good article should express the positive aspects of its subject, but this article seems more like propaganda than an encyclopedia article. Other top world university pages are generally written in a more neutral fashion. -- July 5, 2009
