Article style

There is a lot of good information here, but as an encyclopedia entry it should be written in prose rather than listed in the form of a timeline. -- Eric Winesett 12:14, 9 May 2007 (CDT)

Molinier's Biography will be ready in a prose form within a few days. Pierre Petit 08:11, 21 May 2007 (CDT)

Dr. Petit has requested that we help with copyediting (and dividing into paragraphs, no doubt). --Larry Sanger 09:16, 10 July 2007 (CDT)

Can do.--Robert W King 09:16, 10 July 2007 (CDT)
This is the first revision of the entry. If there are any mistakes, comments, errors, then by all means let me know. --Robert W King 12:52, 10 July 2007 (CDT)
Well, for one thing, the present tense ought to disappear! Hayford Peirce 10:19, 11 July 2007 (CDT)
I heavily edited the original to remove the present tense and to make it more "readable"(in terms of flow) and less "timeline", but it was Dr. Petit's preference to change it back and I am in no position to question that.--Robert W King 13:54, 11 July 2007 (CDT)

Text here was removed by the Constabulary on grounds of civility. (The author may replace this template with an edited version of the original remarks.)

I defer to an editor.--Robert W King 14:15, 11 July 2007 (CDT)
In most occurrences, I have replaced present tenses with past tenses, according to standard English style ; I have used lower-casing for family names and " " quotes instead of « » quotes. Thanks to all for your help.Pierre Petit 05:15, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Second copyediting?

While in my opinion this article is already quite readable, in the opinion of a couple of our resident copyeditors, who are very busy with their own projects these days, the article could use another copyediting or, in some places, light rewriting. Please be civil in your remarks here on this talk page, though. --Larry Sanger 22:52, 14 August 2007 (CDT)

Timeline too

You could move the timeline in the article to a timeline page, too. --Larry Sanger 22:27, 17 November 2007 (CST)

Further Work (1)

At the request of the author, further changes have been made to the Biography section. Also, some suggestions have been communicated directly to the author, where the text was enigmatic and/or the author's intention was unclear to me. --Perry Spiller 04:32, 4 February 2008 (CST)
