Probably the best essay around. --Sulmues Let's talk 20:24, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Not at all! I appreciate the sentiments, but this essay is far too cautious, unrealistic, and extremist. Keeping an article out of mainspace until it has strictly met all the policies! That almost sounds like waiting until it has reached Featured Article status! An article can still be useful, and in a suitable state to be edited by others (after all, Wikipedia is a collaboratively-edited work, and benefits from being so), without being 100% in compliance with policies.--greenrd (talk) 21:23, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
The article might not need to be finished, but a foundation should be in place. it should be clear where the page needs to go and how it is going to get there. V0X HUMANA ELEVEN (talk) 21:18, 17 January 2011 (UTC)


"Too many students have failed tests and assignments because that little stub someone wrote on the topic they were researching"

What about that little stub? The essay doesn't finish the sentence. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:58, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
