User:Robth/Citation spot checks

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

As of late June '06, I'm starting an experiment in which I will be sampling around five random inline citations from featured article candidates that are sufficiently well referenced to make the effort meaningful. I will then check these references to see if the cited source contains text supporting the claim to which the citation applies. I will then post the results of this sampling on the article's talk page, comment appropriately on the FA nomination page, and place a link to the results on this page.

I will be opposing FACs which lack sufficient inline citations, lack sufficient detail in their citations (page numbers are key), or which I find serious problems with while doing the spot check. In other cases, I will comment on the results; I may oppose or support for other reasons. Or not, as the case may be.
