Volkswagen Type 2[edit]

Article is no longer a featured article.

Review commentary[edit]

  • Introduction is too brief and vague, it doesn't mention the specific models/variants at all.
  • Many stubby paragraphs that only introduce a topic without discussing it.
  • The "Variants" section is only a list and doesn't talk about each of these different types in detail.
  • An almost complete lack of references (the two that are there are done improperly).
  • Excess bolding of words.
  • The article ends "open-endedly" at the end of the history section, leaving the reader to say "so what makes these cars special?" --SCHZMO 03:20, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

FARC commentary[edit]

Main FA criteria concerns are LEAD (3a), comprehensiveness (2b), and citations (2c). Marskell 16:48, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Remove—Not much activity since listing for review [[1]]. It passes 2a, IMV, but can someone fix things such as:
    • Grammar: "just like the Beetle has".
      • Sentence has been rearranged, improving grammar but not changing the basic content. - 07:22, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
    • A snake to chop up: "Kombi, however, is not only the name of the passenger variant, but is also the Australasian and Brazilian term for the whole Type 2 family in much the same way that they are all called VW-Bus in Germany, even the pickup truck variations." Tony 02:47, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
      • Holy shit—what a sentence ;). Marskell 16:46, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Remove - the lack of references and insufficient lead is enough to warrant removal. Pagrashtak 01:31, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Remove lack of refs Jaranda wat's sup 19:10, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Remove Is not even up to par for a good article. misses the FA mark by a mile. Karrmann 23:14, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Remove I must say I have been wondering what is this doing among FAs for a long time now, but I didn't want the one to blow the whistle. But now that even Karrmann says so, I feel free to say it loud :D Bravada, talk - 00:07, 17 July 2006 (UTC)
