Revision as of 19:34, 19 April 2007

Here is a survey of ten random pages:

5 good articles: 1, 2, 3. 8, 10
2 stubs: 4, 7
1 useless: 5
2 sabotage: 6, 9
This is interesting, but leaves questions unanswered. How does this compare to Wikipedia? What type of sabotage was it? 5 good articles out of 10 is probably better than Wikipedia, in my experience.
The analysis below is like the approach taken on Wikipedia: judge an article by how long it is, with more words meaning a better article. That's not our approach here, where we value conciseness as a true encyclopedia and learning resource does.--Aschlafly 13:45, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Was it copied from Wikipedia? (original work) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Ussher

I assure you, it was not. I did not even consult the Wikipedia version, because the last time I had seen it, it contained a section essentially holding Ussher's chronology up to ridicule.--TerryHTalk 15:15, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
