Result: Delist Clear consensus to delist AIRcorn (talk) 08:35, 25 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Unfortunately, I believe this article should be stripped of being listed as a Good article due to the fact that there are multiple additional citations tags in a lot of the article's sections, which IMMEDIATELY disqualifies it according to the third GA criteria. It was listed over a decade ago, in 2007, so I don't know if the rules were extremely lenient back then? Because though I haven't checked a lot of the sources, I know that it needs a lot of fixing up with updating prose with reliable citations.

There is also an issue with people simply adding free-use pictures of their labradors for the heck of it rather than with an image matching commentary reflecting the section's information. Doubt that's a GA issue though, just something I should mention. -NowIsntItTime(chats)(doings) 02:56, 4 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Sad to see. ..but this needs lots of manpower to fix up. Will research sources soon.--Moxy 🍁 04:16, 7 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Glad to hear it Moxy! -NowIsntItTime(chats)(doings) 18:54, 8 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Agree. This is the English-speaking Wikipedia, and for us the Labrador Retriever is arguably "the flagship dog". It should be at FA standard. The same old problem - overweight labbies again! Quick solution? Axe everything that is unsourced or dubious. That text will either return again fully cited, or simply be removed and leading to a weight reduction. I am in favor of a reclass to quality=B. Even after the axing! I would do both right now, but will be guided by your consensus. William Harristalk 11:14, 16 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Agree. I call WP:CONSENSUS. ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 11:30, 16 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
  • Speedy delist I say WP:IAR and delist it now. There are way too many maintenance tags and image-spam issues for it to even need to sit in a queue any longer. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 22:00, 16 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@NowIsntItTime, TenPoundHammer, Moxy, William Harris, and Cavalryman: I am speedy delisting . I guess if you want to start a reclamation drive, the article's talk page would be a good place to do it. Cheers. ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 01:09, 17 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you... we can now clean it up without people say ..."no no dont remove its a GA article". I am up for helping this weekend.--Moxy 🍁 01:21, 17 October 2019 (UTC
Well done Lingzhi2. Also, whether an article is at GA or even FA, that should not deter editors from ensuring that it complies with WP:POL. I will place my watch on the LR page for a week in support of the efforts here - there may be some biting necessary. "Let the games begin!" William Harristalk 04:39, 17 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]


would this study be useful as a source? https://az.repo.nii.ac.jp/index.php?action=pages_view_main&active_action=repository_action_common_download&item_id=4258&item_no=1&attribute_id=20&file_no=3&page_id=13&block_id=17

Popularity of the breed[edit]

The breed is said, early in this article, to be popular in "the European world". Is this the same as Europe - if so it should be shortened to that. If not, what does it mean? Whatever that is, it could be said more clearly. ShropshirePilgrim (talk) 14:56, 21 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
