I decied to edit the story because it was only like 5 lines long. If anyone wants it changed, I won't be offended.
Tone and content
- Can you give us an example of any problems and how to fix it? King Zeal 16:57, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
- If you follow the above link the the Stone of Tears talk page you will find an explanation of the problems. To sum it up the page doesn't read like an encyclopdic entry, it reads like a publishing blurb and a essay or story. If you would like I can dig up some articles that display a more appropriate tone in example. NeoFreak 17:00, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
- That would be appreciated, since I don't really see the issue. King Zeal 19:18, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
- Read the plot summary of Brideshead Revisited. Notice its concise and factual tone. It lays out the major point and doesn't do so in a "story telling" format as if just recounting the book. Diamonds Are Forever (novel) is another example. Notice how it doesn't use a narrative tone and there is no first person or "we's" and "I's" and "you's". It just summarizes the plot. Are you starting to understand a little better when I say the tone and format is wrong?
What about the article, exactly, sounds like an advertisement? King Zeal 13:50, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
I don't quite get the second tag (story). The section is NPOV, provides a good outline of the book, and barring any general grammatic/spelling errors I don't see anything wrong with it. Why the tag? Omnilord 04:14, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
The fifth rule is listed here. It would be nice if there was a place where they were all listed together, and this also linked to that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:32, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
