No longer meets A-Class criteria at this time Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:17, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

American Civil War[edit]

Nominator(s): Anotherclown (talk)


Current A-class assessment: Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Assessment/American Civil War/Archive2.

This article was awarded A-class by a WP:MILHIST review on 28 March 2007 (see above). It went through a few GARs and was kept, but was later delisted as a GA on 28 July 2012 (see Wikipedia:Good_article_reassessment/American_Civil_War/2). Despite this it looks like it kept its A class rating by default. The article would seem to fail our A class criteria on referencing alone as there are quite a few paragraphs without citations. As such I request this be reassessed / demoted. Anotherclown (talk) 02:23, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Demote as it stands on, as AC indicates, referencing alone. Formatting-wise, there's also lots of Harv errors to be tidied up. I'd love to see someone rescue the article before next year's sesquicentennial of the end of the war but it doesn't do WP any good to claim it as a MilHist A-Class article in its current state.

Demote on A1, there are sections with no citations at all. Which is a shame given the importance of the topic. Agree that the number of Harv errors is very ugly, and the See also section is not MOS-compliant. I haven't checked the images, but doesn't even look B-Class in its current state.

Demote: per nom and others, this doesn't meet the A-class criteria at the moment. AustralianRupert (talk) 11:10, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Demote: I did some copyediting, but it really didn't make a dent. - Dank (push to talk) 13:59, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
