Belgrade[edit]

Article is close to perfection. I can't see anything that hasn't been covered, so hopefully we'll all agree it deserves FA status.--estavisti 23:20, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Support - It is a really great article to read. The article improvement drive helped the article as well. --Krytan 23:26, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Weak Support - Granted it is well written, but as the peer review indicates, some of the lists should be either re-arranged or written out. Other than that, I think that this article is worthy of FA status --Хајдук Еру (Talk || Cont) 23:30, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose - WAAAAAY too many lists. Too few inline citations. I would like to see a photo in the infobox as well.--DaveOinSF 23:49, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose: Poorly referenced, should be written in summary style, overwhelmingly large ToC.
  • Comment I don't really see why a lot of people seem to be obsessed with lists. There are a few, but some things are better laid out in lists than in paragraphs. If you feel that strongly about it, would you consider helping me out with them? --estavisti 01:27, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
    Here's a few cities which have achieved FA: Cape Town; Hong Kong; San Francisco. They all have few or no lists. Look how they dealt with the sections you claim work better as lists.--DaveOinSF 04:04, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Object. Listy, one-sentence and stubby paragraphs, and poorly referenced. Sandy 18:13, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Support Per nom -- Nathannoblet 23:35, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Object. Per Sandy+wrong linking to external links. I strongly recommend a new peer-review and a thorough study of the FA criteria.--Yannismarou 07:25, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Object Nine references for a 60 Kilobyte article, with entire sections completely unsourced. "By the beginning of 2008 Belgrade will start construction of a light rail transit system." Says who? "The bridge was destroyed in 1941 and rebuilt after the end of World War II as a single span bridge, at the time it was the longest bridge of that kind in the world." Where is that stated? The "Middle Ages" section could be completely made up, and I wouldn't have a clue. -- Kicking222 19:58, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
