Originally this was up for WikiProject A-class, but to paraphrase Giano, if it's good enough for that (well, he was talking about something else, but...), it's good enough to come here, and I'll get more feedback even if it doesn't pass. Nousernamesleftcopper, not wood 01:00, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Rather short; is it comprehensive, as required? And the prose needs a spruce up, preferably by someone else.
I double checked against three of my sourced and it contains all the information fit for an encyclopedia in them.
"During this period of time, he published an article in the local journal Nouvellee Annales de Mathkmatiques discussing properties of the triangle." Remove "of time". *I presume the "k" is not a typo; commas either side of the title, then "which discussed the properties ...".
"In 1870, a laryngeal disease forced him to discontinue his teaching. Instead, he turned to publishing his mathematical research. He also participated and founded several mathematical societies and journals, such as ..."—the disease seems to be the theme of this paragraph, but that sits awkwardly with the subsequent ideas.
The theme of a paragraph is his turning to mathematical research, actually. Do you have an idea for a better topic sentence? Nousernamesleftcopper, not wood 22:57, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
"best-known" is hyphenated further down; why not at the top?
Comment: Image:Lemoine.jpg may have licensing issues. The tag sets forth that the author is an “anonymous photographer”, yet the licensing tag is using the “life of the author plus 70 years” criterion (i.e. if the author is anonymous, how do we know when (s)he died?). Given time frames, this is likely indeed true; however, in France, when the work is anonymous, the criterion roles over to 70 years after the work was first published (not counting extensions for the world wars). Coming into existence and being published are different things; given that this is from a website, if this was scanned from a private collection and uploaded, the publishing date could be as recent as the 1990s (i.e. it would not be PD). Do we have more information about this photo and/or its source to make a proper determination? ЭLСОВВОLДtalk 19:26, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I've scoured the internet and I can't find anything else about this anonymous photographer. If worst comes to worst, I suppose it could be transferred from Commons to the English Wikipedia. Nousernamesleftcopper, not wood 15:45, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
OK, it's much better. Ref 11—the link won't open. TONY(talk) 12:48, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
