There are hints at controversy, for example 'The country of Dayuan is generally accepted as relating to the Ferghana Valley.' Does this mean that there are people who think it wasn't? Is there any archaeological evidence?
Fundamentally, the article fails to answer the question: Who were the Dayuan people?
The current map needs work. A map such as this is the first thing a read will look at, and at the moment it is hard to follow - my first impression of the map was that Ta-Yuan was simply the name of a city.
Not enough other references, and citation not correctly done within the text.
Agree with above post - the article does not clearly say what/who the Dayuan are. Appears to half portray the Dayuan as a nation, and half as an ethnic group.

Suggested FA criteria concerns are comprehensiveness (1b), sufficiency of references (1a), image (3).Marskell 06:14, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Delist. I know I'm supposed to help fix up the article as much as possible, but my knowledge about this subject does not extend very far. The muddled nature of the article makes it difficult to fix in any case.--Nydas(Talk) 08:49, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Delist. Too muddled. Needs a bit of work. - 52 Pickup 21:25, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
Delist Not comprehensive. Note that it does not conform with WikiProject Ethnic Groups' article topics template. Also, no inline citations. -Fsotrain09 21:33, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
