Taking a lesson from A bastard's guide to writing a featured article this is a cookie cutter subject - a run-of-the-mill town near to another previously FA'ed place. Actually, it is located between two FA'd places, Dawson Creek and Chetwynd. The difference is that this town has dinosaurs! maclean 07:53, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Support. Very nice article. Karanacs (talk) 16:29, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Support. Can't see any problems. Epbr123 (talk) 23:23, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
There is a disconnect between the way Notes and References are organized, making it hard to locate the Ref that matches each Note. Sample edit left. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 00:41, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Fixed. That was a good point, I never saw that. And 'Thank you' to those above who read the article, I appreciate it. --maclean 04:23, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Unlike a few other BC articles, which were pretty bad, this is quite well-written. But why not polish it? Here are very random examples:
"Population projections made in 1977 estimated there to be 3,568 residents in 1981,..."—"Population projections in 1977 were for 3,568 residents in 1981,..."
"Population level in T" --> Population of T
"an English only mother tongue"—bizarre.
The "with" connective, poor at the best of times, appears here twice in a row, without even preceding commas: "The town experiences a continental climate with arctic air masses moving predominantly southwestly from the Mackenzie Valley towards the Rocky Mountains. These southwesterly winds move through the mountains north of town. Much of the precipitation is lost in the mountains with the town itself in a rain shadow behind Mount Bergeron."
And more. Recruit someone new to run through it, and make it a great article ... Tony(talk) 09:08, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the input, Tony. I did your "How to satisfy Criterion 1a exercises" a few months ago. I believe my writing has improved over the years thanks to writing WP articles. Since your second point deals with an image, that point will take a day or two to fix. --maclean 19:59, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
Support well written and tightly knit. Just a suggestion: could the town hall image be moved in the infbox (or some other picture of the town be inserted in the infobox)?--Qyd (talk) 20:15, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
