Croatia national football teamEdit

Nominator(s): Animation is developing 02:50, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

This article is about the Croatia national football team and I think that this place has drastically improved since it was last reassess in 2008 and with stricter guidelines this might have a shot at being promoted via the hard work that @Domiy: has done to put it back up to the status that it is today.

Comments by Kees08Edit

Not really intending on doing a full review and providing a support/oppose at the end of it. I did a quick read through and glanced at the sources and had a couple comments:

  • It would be nice (not sure if required?) if the sources used the trans-title field
  • One of the sources has some JavaScript jibberish and is clearly broken
  • Multiple links to Croatia Football Federation (one example, you should fix all that have multiple wikilinks)
  • Another citation has 'Daily Maildate=10 October 2006.', which is clearly an error with the citation template
  • The graph of FIFA ranking over time seems upside down; I would expect 1 to be at the top of the chart.

These are some generic examples to show you should go through the sources with a fine toothed comb and expand them as much as possible, verify they are working, and that they have no obvious errors. Kees08 (Talk) 03:18, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Coord noteEdit

Matt, the FAC instructions state that nominators must be among the article's main editors, and I can see only one recent edit from you. Nor can I find any discussion re. a FAC nom on the article talk page that involves you. Normally I would simply remove this as out-of-process but as Kees has taken the trouble to make some comments I plan to archive it so they remain. Note also that several statements in the article are unsourced; FAC standards require that at the very least every paragraph end in a citation (implying that everything in the paragraph prior to the citation is supported by the source -- more granular referencing may be required).
