I am nominating this featured article for review because it appears to be lacking a significant number of citations, don't think it is up to FA quality any more. Also, lots of trivia without citations, Sadads (talk) 19:09, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
CommentWP:DYKCHECK indicates that the current prose is 5735 characters (7613 words) "readable prose size" however at FA it was Prose size (text only): 75995 characters (12694 words) "readable prose size". Although the number of references has remained at 47...it seems that some of the content may have been removed?Smallman12q (talk) 23:14, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Comment: Were these issues brought up on the talk page first before being brought to FAR? Lambanog (talk) 03:30, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
This article was promoted to FA status in 2005, and it hasn't been review since. JJ98 (talk) 13:42, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
That was my thought as well, noone has been doing actual work on it for years. See dashboard graphicalization, Sadads (talk) 13:49, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I'll take a look:
Stray one-sentence paragraph in intro: "The title is the name of a fictional, eccentric, electronic travel guide, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, prominently featured in the series."
Plot section's only four lines. I don't know much about this work, but I'm pretty sure the plot can be explained far more elaborately even with the individual plot breakdowns further down.
Third paragraph of "Background" is unsourced.
Four paragraphs in "Original radio series" are unsourced.
"Novels" has only one reference, and OR statement in "Eoin Colfer, who wrote the sixth book in the Hitchhiker's series in 2008-09, used this latter concept but apparently none of the plot ideas from "The Salmon of Doubt".
A section on "Analytical works" was unsourced and entirely redlinked, so I excised it.
"Related stories" has multiple short paragraphs.
Entire "Other Hitchhiker's-related books" section is unsourced.
"Radio Series three to five" contains no references after the first paragraph.
"LP Album adaptations" has no sources among the first three paragraphs.
"Many science fiction fans and radio listeners outside the United Kingdom were first exposed to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in one of two ways: shortwave radio broadcasts of the original radio series, or by Douglas Adams being "Guest of Honour" at the 1979 World Science Fiction Convention, Seacon, held in Brighton, England, UK. " — Unsourced.
Overall, a huge lack of citation throughout.
This, an open wiki, is fine as an external link, but not an inline reference.
The references use "ibid." which the MoS frowns upon.
