Algerian Civil War[edit]

I'm not really targeting this for FAC yet, since the serious dearth of pictures is unlikely to be solved for some time, but I've pretty much written it all myself, and I think I'm too close to it to see how it reads to others. So I'd love to get some input on what needs doing and whether it's readable. - Mustafaa 23:07, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • The article is very well written and I found it easy to read through. A couple of things to consider before taking it to FAC would be expansion of the lead section up to three paragraphs, for example from the current lead its not clear that this is an ongoing conflict, the lead should be a good summary of the rest of the article. Consistent use of an inline refernce system would be good idea, especially where you have quoted specific numbers and quotes, some already have intext references, but others like the bombing of the Algiers airport claimed 9 lives and injured 128 people don't, you should move the existing in text refernces to a list and add refs for the missing ones, I suggest using Footnote 3 or Footnote 4. As far as images go it would be nice to see some more, you could probably claim fair use for Presidential images and so on depending on where you get them from--nixie 01:02, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Thanks, these are good points. I've started footnoting it now, and I'll try expanding the lead shortly. - Mustafaa 20:40, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
