Failed "good article" nomination[edit]

This article failed good article nomination. This is how the article, as of February 9, 2007, compares against the six good article criteria:

1. Well written?: The article appears well written, with proper English and providing wikilinks to outside terms related to the topic.
2. Factually accurate?: For the most part it looks accurate, with a couple of inline citations. I would recommend adding more sources more inline citations for your information as a good start for Good Article. Three is not enough.
3. Broad in coverage?: This is the main reason I am not passing the article. It may be difficult to find information, but I'm sure there are several architecture books out there that cover vestibules. Perhaps you can elaborate on their current usage, if it adds to the value of homes/the cost of the room, benefits, vestibules in other countries, etc. Look to other architecture articles and get examples from there or consider getting a peer review of people more knowledgeable in architecture who may be able to help you.
4. Neutral point of view?: The article appears NPOV, keep it that way.
5. Article stability? Appears stable, I don't foresee any problems with that in the future.
6. Images?: Good use of images, I would keep all of them. If possible attempt to get an image of a current day vestibule or any historic paintings/drawings of the Roman/Greek vestibules.

When these issues are addressed, the article can be resubmitted for consideration. Thanks for your work so far.

This has a good start to it, but it needs to go broader in coverage with more sources. It just needs some more sources and possibly more help for ideas to improve it. Improve on the above issues before nominating again. --Nehrams2020 22:50, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
