Talk:Pump leak and fire shuts down nuclear reactor in France

Active discussions

Style issuesEdit

Two style issues that immediately caught my notice (alas, the review queue is likely to be sluggish atm, as we're unusually shorthanded for the next week or two).

  • The headline is a noun. Headlines really should be sentences (in headlinese, of course), preferably in active voice; see WN:headline.
  • The article should start with a lede answering the basic questions about the news event, followed by paragraphs expanding the story in inverted pyramid style. Occasionally it turns out, when reviewing an article with a too-long first paragraph, simply inserting a paragraph break after the first or second sentence can fix the problem; this can be done by a reviewer, but much more than that could not be done by a reviewer since the reviewer has to remain sufficiently independent to review.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll work to address these issues soon. This is my first article, so I was expecting to have a lot of style work to do. MyNameWasTaken (talk) 04:19, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Review of revision 1461452 [Not ready]Edit

San Onofre nuclear plant.Edit

I know this is not in France or your immediate focus, but coincidentally a California plant was also just shut down and could be mentioned with sourcing. France makes use of nuclear power to a greater degree than the United States. Interesting. Crtew (talk) 19:31, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Extremely helpful suggested updateEdit

Where the original contributor to mark, using htlp comments, what facts/quotes within the article are to be found in which sources, this would significantly easy completing a review. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:41, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Good suggestion, done. MyNameWasTaken (talk) 18:05, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
Anymore updates? Still a few hours out of date, but if not I think it's good to go. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 20:40, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
