Result: No consensus for delisting. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 11:05, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

I think this article is well below GA standards today. There are several unsourced passages and others are clearly outdated. (Things which are "obvious" to people who own a certain type of computer quickly become non-obvious and require sourcing as the years pass and the user base diminishes.) After the new 2013 Mac Pro was bolted into this page, it has be come very confusing, e.g. the Software and Add-on hardware sections almost certainty doesn't apply the new/2013 one "as is". If someone can muster satisfactory cleanup even in the "no consensus to split" situation, please do so. Otherwise I think this should be delisted as quickfail GAR, but given that there's no consensus about the state of the article, I've opened this as a community review...

So you propose a quick fail before even seeing if anyone wants to do cleanup? Hmmm. If you don't mind, might you spend a few moments and make a detailed list of the problems? I would be happy to fix them all. Maury Markowitz (talk) 23:38, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Also, this article has about zero content in the way of reception/reviews for the new (cylinder) series. And it's not like RS reviews are lacking for it... Someone not using his real name (talk) 02:34, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure what an "RS review" is, is that "real something"? Again, it seems you have identified the problems you wish to see addressed, if you can list them, I offer my time to fix it. Or, perhaps, as the person most familiar with the problems, you might just take a stab at it yourself? The thought of delisting and then re-running GA is too much to contemplate.

  • Closing: It appears not one else could muster the time to weigh in here. In the meantime, at least some of the issues identified above have been addressed. It could still do with some reviews/reception, but that doesn't seem like a delist issue. Maury Markowitz (talk) 16:37, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
