  • This poor orphan of an article was written by someone who knows nothing about art (yours truely) because it was requested. Right now, it's pretty sad - but on the bright side, there's plenty of room for growth. PLus, it's a pretty interesting topic. →Raul654 05:59, Jun 20, 2004 (UTC)

    • Point taken - and it is filling up anyway. Support withdrawn. -- ALoan (Talk) 21:37, 3 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • I would be the first to agree that this article needs work. It needs a lot of work, & considering just how complex a topic it is, what is curretnly there can, in good faith, be considered a stub. (Consider if the articles United States, France, or Soviet Union were nothing more than what appears for Roman Empire.) But I don't think the place to fix it is by listing it as an "Article of the Week": there is just too much to be done to make a decent impact in the process of a week. Is it possible to find a way to gather some interested people to consider this problem, & together make the article somewhat better? I have some ideas for how this should be done, & would like to help fix this hole in Wikipedia's coverage. -- llywrch 01:11, 4 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • Tourism in Egypt used to redirect to Luxor, now it redirects to Egypt. There are many places outside Luxor for tourists to visit in Egypt, right ? There may be Wikipedians willing to share photos taken from various tourist attractions in Egypt to make this a pretty page without worrying about copyvio. Someone may also want to write about the importance of tourism in the economy of Egypt, a page which so far has little info on tourism. PFHLai 15:02, 2004 Jul 10 (UTC)

  • A tremendously important work of world literature, famous for the very strict structure of Pushkin's sonnets, maintained over the novel's entire length. Russians have been known to memorize the entire book; its translation has been a tremendously controversial issue as well; Vladimir Nabokov claimed that it was impossible to translate into English verse. I know next to nothing about the Russian language, but the book deserves more than it has right now. grendel|khan 04:21, 2004 Jul 6 (UTC)

  • This is a really basic anatomical topic. It deserves more than a four-sentence stub. It also has a sizeable "what links here" list, so it's likely to be frequently traversed.
    • My only concern would be that anatomical topics aren't necessarily easy for non-specialists to work on - that was the problem when situs inversus was AOTW.-- ALargeElk | Talk 12:07, 7 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Haute couture (1 vote over 1 week)[edit]

Support

  1. PFHLai 05:53, 2004 Jul 14 (UTC)

Comments

  • So far, just a brief history, and an incomplete list of fashion houses .... Couturier is also rather stubby ....
  • It's hardly stubby---at least a printed page and a half of real article text. I think there's too much in haute couture to be AotW. Couturier is definitely short enough, though. grendel|khan 07:21, 2004 Jul 14 (UTC)
  • Whether it's an AOTW or not, it needs some help. The problem is figuring out which fashion houses are only ready-to-wear and which actually do custom dress-making. The custom dressmaking is a loss-leader for the ready-to-wear, perfume, shoes, handbags, etc. and some fashionistas, like Ralph Lauren I believe, just skip the custom part. I've read Vogue for years and I still can't tell which of the touted dressmakers do real couture and which don't. The fashion industry seems to want to blur the distinction. If there's anyone in the Wikipedia community who's in the fashion industry, or knows someone in the fashion industry, please help! Zora 21:14, 16 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • Then this belongs on pages needing attention, not here. There's already an article there, and it doesn't belong here. grendel|khan 17:52, 2004 Jul 17 (UTC)
    • It belongs as long as someone nominates the article, with the aim "to have a featured-standard article by the end of the week, from widespread cooperative editing." The fact that the page needs attention (though not really listed at WP:PNA, as indicated above) actually means that are things to add to the article, making it a reasonable candidate. I was hoping to learn more about haute couture apart from the brief history. Anyway, there is a lack of votes. Never mind .... -- PFHLai 18:50, 2004 Jul 17 (UTC)

  • Not a stub, but a pathetic attempt to address a subject of such importance.
  • Yes, I noticed this a while ago...a lot of things you could put on there (i.e. descriptions of various genres, types of art) already have pages of their own though, so I don't know how much we could write about "art" as an abstraction. It needs work, nonetheless. --Tothebarricades.tk 07:03, 16 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • All the above and more. Of all these subjects listed, this is the largest and most sweeping omnibus subject that has such a truly inadequate article for it. It's just terrible, and a real shame. If I had the time, I'd sit and rewrite the whole thing myself, but I can't for at leastthe next few months. It's pretty easy to write about Art as an idea, if you are flexible in your discussion, and willing to propose competing and contradictory ideas. It MUST be fixed. Truly.

  • This absolutely deserves something more exhaustive, akin to Quebec sovereigntism, for example. Scottish independence is a very interesting, important subject and it has centuries of information to be drawn from and to be clarified. Furthermore, to find information about it all in one place with a more thorough coverage would be much more usefull than having to dig through the history pages every time. --Liberlogos 17:21, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • For such a crucial event in the civil rights movement, this is a pretty cruddy stub - and a fairly large hole in Wikipedia's coverage. I think it'd be perfect for AOTW - there's so much that could be added. Ambivalenthysteria 15:09, 17 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Nice photo at Little Rock Nine. Let's merge and take the pic. -- PFHLai 19:05, 2004 Jul 17 (UTC)

  • It's an important topic in the history of multicultural Britain and deserves much better than my pitiful stub. It needs to talk about why they came, why they were needed etc. Secretlondon 11:59, 19 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • Would be interesting to learn how people in different cultures welcome new babies into their communities. -- PFHLai 06:40, 2004 Jul 29 (UTC)
  • If that's what you want to cover, the article would certainly need to be renamed. Baby shower is a very Americanism I believe. - Taxman 17:46, Jul 29, 2004 (UTC)
    • There shouldn't be any problems with renaming and redirects, but it's the same topic: we all "shower" the "baby" and the new mother with gifts. The timing varies. Traditional choices of gifts also are different. Some cultures may have interesting and unique foods at the party, too. -- PFHLai 18:44, 2004 Jul 29 (UTC)
    • Anyone know a more generic term for this? There must be one somewhere.... -FZ 13:05, 30 Jul 2004 (UTC)
      • The term "baby shower" is used in Australia so I wouldn't know a more generic term --John Lynch 08:19, 3 Aug 2004 (UTC)
