Instant view page not generated for this article
Inés
This iv must not be generated with the table 1
Declined by admin
Complex tables are unsupported content.

(We will accept this issue if you include a link to a template that fully supports the content in question.)

This iv shouldn't be generated with this table
Matteo Cajani
The content of the table is part of the article and the IV supports it by reorganizing the content in readable lists

This iv must not be generated with that table
Declined by admin
If a part of an article is not available in the Instant View format, an IV page must not be generated. They way to 'support' the table in this template (https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/alistapart.com/template4/?url=https%3A%2F%2Falistapart.com%2Farticle%2Fpersuasion-applying-the-elaboration-likelihood-model-to-design) is not clear and not supporting the page at all seems a better idea.

Issue for pages with unsupported content may be considered if they provide a link to a template that supports this content.

Reporter's template is missing blocks 'AIRED' and 'Featuring'

It is acceptable to generate no IV for pages that contain tables if these tables can't be reworked perfectly.
Template #11 Issue #1
Jun 17 at 10:47 AM
Although you can generate a list from pretty any table, not any table requires it. For me a good detection can be if aListAppart itself thinks table can be represented as list.
Compare: http://imgur.com/a/6NSip
Also, you may want to reread the rules:
Checklist 6.8.1
Three-column tables and more complex tables should be tagged as @unsupported.
This table obviously has 3 columns)

Your template looses in readability.
Matteo Cajani
A similar issue has already been rejected, first column could be made more readable but none the less the whole table concepts can be completely understood by reading from this IV page listing.
Accepted by admin
Template #11 Issue #2
Jun 17 at 10:59 AM
Missing so much: format, aired, anchors, images, participants (at the very bottom)
Matteo Cajani
Aired date is not missing: it is in IV page date, format is not so relevant (since the event already happened), participants are already listed in the featuring paragraph and participants images are not so relevant and whould reduce readability
Accepted by admin
Template #10 Issue #2
Jun 17 at 11:51 AM
Too big images that reduce readability and that are not so relevant (participants faces can be seen in the video itself)
‏werreour
Yep, and transcript does not needed, since all this can be heared in the video itself. C'mon original page have it for some reason (maybe because not everybody will see the video, maybe because it is normal to show avatars near names))
Declined by admin
Template #10 Issue #3
Jun 17 at 11:52 AM
This should be IV page's published_date
‏werreour
Please do not confuse the date of event and the date of article about event written. Aired block is essential as admin said

Declined by admin
Template #10 Issue #4
Jun 17 at 11:53 AM
This paragraph is relevant for future events but not so relevant for past events
‏werreour
Hey, I don't believe you are an admin of aListAppart to decide what is relevant and what is not. There is such a block on original page, there should be such a block on IV page
Declined by admin
Template #10 Issue #5
Jun 17 at 11:55 AM
Past "events listing" and "about our events" sections are not part of the essential content
‏werreour
I think you should reread the rules carefully before writing new issues.
https://instantview.telegram.org/checklist#6-6-read-also-read-more-more-on-this-topic-links
It is so annoying to copy past links from it to you.

About our events is not stated in checklist, however there is
https://instantview.telegram.org/checklist#4-content-to-be-removed

Do you think it is a banner, or it is a ad, or partner link? It is not so essential, but it cares information, it can be shown, since it is available to be shown it.
Sorry for being rude, but 4 issues at a time? Maybe next time you will add a link to rules with them?
Declined by admin
The author is right, it is optional to keep this block. Similar to "Read more" articles, it contains general info related to the article section and it doesn't affect readability in any bad way when it's placed like this.
Template #10 Issue #6
Jun 17 at 4:33 PM
IV page not generated for this event report
‏werreour
It is an internal error of website. Page can't be displayed correctly as it would be displayed in browser. I don't think I should fix it.
Accepted by admin
Template #17 (as well as the current version of this template) is handling the page better.
Template #12 Issue #1
Jun 17 at 4:38 PM
Missing aired block (I know it is displayed as date, but this is wrong, since you confuse the date of event with the date of publishing the article)
Matteo Cajani
This article is the transcript of an event... so the article date and the event date can be considered as the same thing

IV must be generated. Template 3 was declined for this issue: https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/alistapart.com/template3/issue3/
‏werreour
So... you send me my issue as argument?
I really do not know what to do with this page. Let me explain my position:
Telegram does not generate articles with imgs with no src for some reason which I do not know. But this can be a good reason. So if IV does not want me to do it, I shouldn't do it. Sure, I can be wrong.

participants descriptions are missing

Participants sd is the biography of the authors of the event. And therefore is not part of the article

Please, read the checklist. An admin declined your issue when you opened it in template 3 because a table with three columns is NOT supported. https://alistapart.com/article/persuasion-applying-the-elaboration-likelihood-model-to-design

As there is no perfect implementation presented, the issue is not valid.

Missing the cite
Inés
This is optional because it belongs to the code block that is used on the web for additional information (read more, for example). https://instantview.telegram.org/checklist#6-6-read-also-read-more-more-on-this-topic-links
Accepted by admin
Inés
I think this cite is optional, it's additional information as a nice cite to decorate the article. The block of code is used to write "nice cites" or "read more". I think this is an introduction for the article, not a real content.
Declined by admin
It is related to the article, it is part of the article, it should not be omitted. Remember also that the blocks of "Read more" are optional, so it would be better to leave it, than remove them and remove content from the article.
Accepted by admin
(Sorry, it should have been accepted)

Authors' pages should have IV pages
‏werreour
Dinamic list (Also from this author)
Declined by admin
Biography pages that may or not be updated in the future are fair game for IV. That said, there’s no active template that handles it better. Template #17 was declined due to another valid issue, and it also used a small photo as a cover on https://alistapart.com/author/jeremy-wagner, so it didn’t really handle the page perfectly.
Template #8 Issue #5

I'm sorry, but it seems that the same issue appealed was declined.
https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/alistapart.com/template17/issue2/
Declined by admin
It appears the blog section is deprecated, it hasn’t been updated since 2015 and isn’t linked from the website, so it isn't a critical issue to generate no IV for it. This issue will be declined, sorry for the confusion.

Blog is a dead section, no longer linked by alistapart.com pages and menus
Accepted by admin
Matteo Cajani
The last blog article is from year 2015 (https://alistapart.com/blog), the whole blog section and its articles are not maintained nor linked anymore from any public page of the site itself, so I don't think that it's actually needed to support a dead section.
Declined by admin
This is true. It's OK not to support this page.
But as there is another valid issue the template won't be returned to the contest (https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/alistapart.com/template17/issue1/).

Pusblish date is missing. Since this is the transcript of the event itself, publish date and event date are pretty much the same thing.
Inés
I already answered that issue: https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/alistapart.com/template13/issue2/

In case you still do not understand, I will explain it in detail:
The date that appears on the web is the beginning of the event. If an event lasts two days, the future can not be written. In the code there is no date of publication.
Declined by admin
Template #13 Issue #7
Jun 19 at 9:59 PM
This article, even if it has tables in it, should be readable in an IV page. And it should have a link preview, at least.
Inés
Again... PLEASE, read the checklist. Tables with 3 columns are NOT supported.

It's the third time that you open this issue and the first time, the admin declined your issue.
