I am nominating this for featured list because I believe it meets all the criteria. Unfortunately there are limited sources for this article and limited information known or printed about it so the referencs are a little lean. Other than that I think its good.Kumioko (talk) 03:14, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
The lead needs to be expanded to summarize the list itself. (Eg. First ACMC, most AMCMCs of a certain ranking, etc.) Yes each section has a prose about the list, but the lead needs to have a brief summary of that.
Before the official title of "Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps" was adopted in 1946 the title of the position was known as the Assistant to the Commandant and prior to 1918, only a billet "Duty in the office of the Commandant". -- 1)Comma after 1946 2)Per consistency, add quotes around Assistant to the Commandant 3)the last part seems a bit awkward, wouldn't it be only a billet known as the "Duty in the office of the Commandant"
You need to be consistent with the formatting of the dates, either (Day Month, Year) or (Month Day, Year)
Template:dts automatically sorts the dates in the tables to (month day year), while the only dates in the prose are all (month day year), except for the one in the lead that I have fixed. bahamut0013wordsdeeds 05:27, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
From April 29, 1911 to October 16, l946 19 men were assigned to assist the commandant including 5 that eventually went on to become commandant themselves; John A. Lejeune, Wendell C. Neville, Ben H. Fuller, John H. Russell, Jr. and Alexander A. Vandegrift. -- 1)Comma before 19 men 2)The semicolon should be a colon.
As with the Commandant the Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps is appointed by the President based on advice and consent of the Senate and once appointed will received the grade of General. -- 1)Comma after As with the Commandant 2)Comma before and after and once appointed 3)received -> receive
Done. An officer doesn't recieve a new rank anyway, so I changed that to "promoted". bahamut0013wordsdeeds 05:27, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
When there is a vacancy in the office of Commandant of the Marine Corps, or during the absence or disability of the Commandant the Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps shall perform the duties of the Commandant until a successor is appointed or the absence or disability ceases. -- Comma before shall
Sure about that? I figured the comma went between "disibility of the Commandant, the Assistant shall..." in this case. bahamut0013wordsdeeds 05:27, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Generally, most lists have the General ref first and the inline citations afterwards.--Truco503 02:40, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Done. Although I think I need to expand some there is at least something there. --Kumioko (talk) 03:37, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
I think maybe you overdid it a little bit... :P "a photo of XXX" probably would have sufficed, although I never noticed before just how the ACMC (and the CMC) were all white males. bahamut0013wordsdeeds 04:56, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
Actually, "Photo of XXX" is actually what not to say when specifying alt text. Dabomb87 (talk) 13:37, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
Maybe I over did it a little but they how do you descibe a picture in a dozen words and have it be descriptive enough to be meaningful? The problem is if I just put something like "Image of a man in his military uniform" what does that tell you if you can't see it? Nothing, and you'll have a lot of pictures with the same text not descriptive enough to tell them apart. As I see it this is one of the problems with putting alt text on the image, which I agree with, is putting eoungh to make it useful but not too much without POV. Because we are dealing with a list of individuals, all white, all in a similar style military uniform, if I didn't put the names in the description how would you know which is which?. --Kumioko (talk) 13:55, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
"No records exist prior to the outbreak of World War I about this position, possibly because the Commandant likely had only administrative staff and no deputy." The inline citation provided does not back up "possibly because the Commandant likely had only administrative staff and no deputy". I'm assuming this is sourced from the general reference?
Parts of the second paragraph in "Assistant Commandants of the Marine Corps" are too close to the source. Please use quotes or paraphrase. Dabomb87 (talk) 01:42, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Dabs; please check the disambiguation links identified in the toolbox. Dabomb87 (talk) 15:42, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
I checked that. It looks like a DAB link but its not. If you check the page it links to the first paragraph explains it. If you prefer I can delink it though. --Kumioko (talk) 19:58, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
Delink or wikitionary link would be fine. Dabomb87 (talk) 23:53, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
Done. I dee-linked it! --Kumioko (talk) 00:32, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
Sources look good. Dabomb87 (talk) 01:42, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
