Claus von Stauffenberg[edit]

Not a self nomination. I think it’s quite ready now to be a FAC. GeneralPatton 23:28, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

  • Object for now. Small problems:
  1. The mention of the July 20 Plot in the lead is just that - a bare mention. I know it is expanded later, but I don't know what the plot was, and so would be disinclined to read on as it doesn't say what Claus did and what the plot entailed.
  2. Can't you think of a better section heading than "The plot"? Harro5 23:32, May 25, 2005 (UTC)
  • Object - inadequate two-sentence lead; I also suspect that it is not comprehensive: it would be worth asking a German-speaker to compare and incorporate any material from de:Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg, particularly the references. -- ALoan (Talk) 10:18, 26 May 2005 (UTC)
    • OK, I have written a better lead section, but I still object until it is cross-checked with the German version and filled out. -- ALoan (Talk) 13:53, 26 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Object - to short, as mentioned above. This is an ok article, but fails short of FA. I could give you many examples of similar articles, which are close - but not close enough to our modern standards. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 13:16, 26 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Object: An interesting subject, but there is a lot more to be said here. Giano | talk 21:29, 26 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I agree that it should be more comprehensive. Also, resist the tendency to parrot the hero myth of this guy, who was really just another fascist—although at least the article isn't too bad in that regard. Don't count my comments as a vote. Everyking 05:41, 27 May 2005 (UTC)
