Cathedral of Magdeburg[edit]

Recently on the front page as a new created article. Comprehensive and well organised. Deus Ex 23:21, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • I think the tourst info needs to be taken out or reformatted. But overall it's a good article. Support. JOHN COLLISON | (Ludraman) 00:16, 3 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • Changed the tourist info into a table. -- Chris 73 Talk 10:48, Oct 8, 2004 (UTC)
  • Object. I would support if this article got any references. (If possible, some written references would be great, or otherwise list some as further reading.) There are also some small outings of POV, e.g. "fortunately", "interesting", but these are not a big problem. Jeronimo 17:00, 3 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • I understand why lack of references is a problem, but the use of Fortunately is hardly POV- 'Fortunately the fire brigades were able to extinguish all the firebombs in the roof structure in time' and the use of interesting - 'This makes the sculpture interesting to look at from all sides.'

      • Hmmm yes, the "fortunately" was a bit unfortunate, but the "interesting" qualifies the sculpture as interesting, which is an opinion, not a fact. But, like I said, not a big problem for me. Jeronimo 07:07, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)
        • I will add references shortly. I am on a trip, and will be back on Thursday with access to my paper sources. -- Chris 73 Talk 23:39, Oct 3, 2004 (UTC)
          • Added a number of references (most in german) and external links. I also changed the This makes the sculpture interesting to look at from all sides. into a more neutral wording -- Chris 73 Talk 09:39, Oct 6, 2004 (UTC)
        • Great! Support. Jeronimo 11:31, 6 Oct 2004 (UTC)
