You had good information and a lot of detail. But some sentences are very confusing and in the Importance to Russia paragraph you did not finish the last sentence. You linked to some things but you did not link to others, like you linked to Novosibirsk and Barnaul but you did not link to Mogochin and Akademgorodok. I would give this page an 82.

I think that you could have put in more content, which would make the page better. I also think that you should have put in more links to other places than Wikipedia and Answers. I liked the table of contents and the interesting facts section. Also the content you have is good content. You had a few grammer and spelling mistakes. I think that you could have put in more links. I also think that you could have put in more pictures too. Overall I would give this page a 80.

I think this page is pretty good but wasn't as good as I think it could have been. First of all,there were some spelling and grammer errors that should have been edited. Second of all, the majority of the links went to wikepedia. Something I liked about this page was that I thought the facts were very good. I would give this page about an 80.

If I were to score this page I would of probably given it around a 79-80 because I like the table of contence but you have very little content.But a very good thing that you did was put up the interesting facts subheading.You probably want to put a few more links or something in to make it better.

you guys needed to wor on this a little bit more. It seems like you did it on the last daay it was due because you need more content, you have a little to much pictures/bubble shares, and you dont really have to much links at all on your page. You guys should really check out the Gulags page.

Guys....I think the biggest strength of your piece is the formatting. I especially liked the section at the end where you included interesting facts about the river. That was a good idea.

But the weaknesses were many. In particular, I noticed many, many sentences that just seemed to end with no ending. It was strange to see so many of those. I also thought you had a lot of spelling errors.

I noticed in the page history that the work on this page was not fairly balanced. One member of the group did much more than the others....

I think your page is very good. I think your formatting is pretty good. I noticed the interesting facts heading, and I think thats a great idea. I think you should add some more links to your page. An issue I see is there are a couple grammar problems on your page. I think your paragraphs need more info.You did a great job and I think your work deserves a 3! ~Alexia C.

I realize that there aren't many information in. And not too many pictures which makes it kinda dull. Some of your fonts are incorrect. But there are a lot of links. So, that's on strength. It proves that your information is accurate with lots of links. If I would to grade this, I would grade it a 80%-81%. Try to put more
information, 'kay? Keep up the good work!
