Is the article comprehensive?[edit]

A bit on the short side, a bit out of date.--Eloquence 03:28, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • I think I agree with Eloquence, but given how new the project is, the time issue is fine. Lyellin 03:31, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

The grammar must be checked. I think that my English can be improved here. --carlosar.Nov 15 17:52:28 UTC 2004

I corrected some grammar and removed the bit about Robson's goals, since I don't really see how this is relevant to the kidnapping of his mother... Foeke 17:58, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Thank you for your colaboration. I think the information about the goals is important because we can't assume the reader knows the player. I think something must be said about the player and the team, and how the player is important to team. I think it is important saying about Real Madrid interest because that says how relevant is the information at the world sport scenario. Maybe should I put some information about Robinho in Wikipedia. I am waiting another comments.--carlosar Nov 15 18:08:37 UTC 2004


It is ok saying Little Robin but you must say Robinho too, because the player is known around the world by the name Robinho.--carlosar Nov 15 18:08:37 UTC 2004


Since the incident, Robson De Souza ('Robinho') has not appeared in public. >> I think this is not exactly a correct information. What I am sure(and I can prove) is that Robinho is not playing anymore. --carlosar Nov 15 18:08:37 UTC 2004

What is the best way to say Robinho is not playing for Santos since the incident? Or: is it really correct saying:Since the incident, Robson De Souza ('Robinho') has not appeared in public.?.--carlosar Nov 15 18:12:37 UTC 2004

I changed it to "has made few public appearances", which seems to be more accurate.--Eloquence
