Dab links[edit]

Please stop adding dab links to the top of the article for other uses of the word Wigwam. One purpose of dab links is to help users find the correct article if the title could refer to something else, so if there were multiple uses of the term "Wigwam (Chicago)" then there should be a dab link at the top to take the user to either a dab page or the other possible page if there's only one other possible article. The other purpose is where there's a redirect that will bring users to this page but where they might have been expecting another page. So if this was the most common use of the word Wigwam and the page Wigwam was actually a redirect to this page, then again there should be a dab link at the top so that users who have searched under "Wigwam" can find the page they are actually looking for. HOWEVER, in this case there are no other uses of "Wigwam (Chicago)" (and if there were, the dab link would go to other uses of "Wigwam (Chicago)" and NOT other uses of "Wigwam"), and Wigwam doesn't redirect here. SO PLEASE STOP ADDING DAB LINKS. They are not intended as a kind of ornamentation, and should only be used where needed, not as something pretty to clog up the top of the page with.

GA on hold[edit]

This is a well-supported article but it suffers from some of the problems that a lot of the recent Chicago GA nominees have had, including:

  • Far too many sections. Consider combining "name" with "the building", and I would turn "history" into a tripartite section with subheadings for "conventions" and "today" - as it stands, the sections are out of order chronologically, anyway.  Done 22:37, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Choppy sentence structure. Consider copyediting for smoother prose. Commas are desperate for attention. Done 17:49, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
  • I think the phrase "enthusiastic swell" is rather unencyclopedic - perhaps a tamer description (more detail welcome in the Convention section about this, by the way) is appropriate.  Done 22:37, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

GA nomination on hold at this time. Chubbles 20:03, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I think I'm done fussing with it - Do you want to give it a last once-over? Chubbles 22:51, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
