If anyone can think of any ways to improve the formatting that would be particularly welcome. --Kelpan 19:53, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Actually any kind of help would be nice. --Kelpan 18:27, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Please? --Kelpan 16:54, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Humour: 6 It has a slow start, but the rest of it is pretty good. "Sheepie the Doll" is funny, but the article really gets good with the "Moral issues" section.
Concept: 7 I'm surprised we didn't already have an article about this.
Prose and formatting: 5 Not so good. The header section is in bold text, which is kind of distracting.
Images: 8 The images do a good job of enhancing the article.
Miscellaneous: 5 Russian reversals, red-linked quotes, etc. These make me sad.
Final Score: 31 Formatting is easily fixed, but you will eventually have to decide if the article is an advertisement for EasyChangeAGene ltd. or a general exposition on the wonders of genetic engineering. May I also suggest connecting the article to Transhumanism in some way?

Thanks for the tips. I was originally hoping to make two articles linked together (genetic engineering and EasyChangeAGene) but didn't have enough material so combined them into one. As to the russian reversal quote, I put it in because it increases the likelihood of people getting the joke with the sheepie the doll quote. Both are taking the piss out of uncyclopedia in jokes; personally I think an article can get away with one or two of these as long as the rest of the article is accessible to the average IP. I'll see what I can do about the red links and formatting but I'm no expert on the finer details of editing wikis.
