Triceratops[edit]

Hi, this article is scrubbing up OK on its way to FAC. We worked on Stegosaurus and Diplodocus , both of which are now Featured Articles. Anyone see some other issues before having a tilt at FAC? cheers Cas Liber 10:36, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Some issues at hand:
  • header: ...collected for over a century can it simply include what century?
(OK, rewritten that one to sound less vague)
  • POV: Triceratops is the best known... (statement unsourced).
  • "this beak may also be have been used in self-defense." (unsourced) speculative in nature.
(I've created stubs for Rudolph Zallinger (solved a few redlinks that one :)), Schlaikjer and Erickson - the individual Triceratops species prbably shouldn't have them. Will go down the page. Time for breakfast now...)
  • use of comma
(commas are generally considered better to use thn parentheses, however it does cause confusion sometimes. I'll try and split or tweak a few sentences)
  • typo error
  • "Triceratops is also the official state fossil of South Dakota, and the official state dinosaur of Wyoming"; "It is a common pop culture dinosaur" (unsourced).
(thanks for pointing out that sentence, I have rewritten it - as far as it being unsourced, I figured the length of the pop culture refs would be self-explanatory in highlighting its commonness in use)
  • i'm not sure if there's a common english use for the term: Triceratops to merit the italics format. if there's none, i'm not sure if it should be so, please correct me if i'm wrong. --RebSkii 19:03, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
(As they are scientific names, the standard practice on all the dino pages has been italics)
