Point Park Civic Center[edit]

New article, looking to improve it. Please tear it apart. Christopher Parham (talk) 09:41, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Sorry for being brief, but I would like to see more external links. Computerjoe's talk 16:05, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Unfortunately, there are no external links I can find besides the reference that is already used which would add usefully to the article. Christopher Parham (talk) 20:38, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
Starting to tear it apart with a batch of minor issues:
  • Dates should use either 0 or 2 commas, depending upon the subject of the article; American-related articles should use 2 commas, while British-related articles generally used 0 commas. For example, for two commas: In January 15, 2006, this and that happened, while for zero commas, use: In January 15 2006 this and that happened.
  • Per WP:MOS#Headings, headings generally do not start with the word "The". For example, ==The Biography== would be changed to ==Biography==.
  • Per WP:MOSNUM, at Units of measurement, numbers with SI units of measure should have conversions in US customary units and vice versa. These conversions should keep to similar values of precision. For example, "the Moon is 380,000 kilometres (240,000 mi) from Earth". Note that the converted unit of measure uses a standard abbreviation, while the source unit is spelled out in the text.
  • Per WP:MOSNUM, there should be a no-break space -   between a number and the unit of measurement. For example, instead of 18mm, use 18 mm, which when you are editing the page, should look like: 18 mm.
  • Per WP:CONTEXT and WP:MOSDATE, years, decades, and centuries without full dates generally should not be linked. For example, January 2006 should not be linked, instead change it to January 2006. Also, please note WP:BTW and WP:CONTEXT, which state that years with full dates should be linked. For example, February 28, 2006, should be come February 28, 2006.
  • One of the footnotes, the Strong one, isn't working
  • Please link the first occurrence of a dollar sign to United States dollar (like $)

    • All now addressed, as far as I can tell. Let me know if I have missed something. Thanks, Christopher Parham (talk) 21:52, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
