Classes & Races Edit

I think we should have classes in there, just a a bit of help, and races for a bit of lore. I am not very good at making suggestions, but there is my idea. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shigamori (talk · contr).

I've looked at your suggestion and have viewed every class and race page separately. Here's my report:

The druid article is good
The hunter article is badly lined out
The mage article is short, and the section weren't done good enough
Paladin, I dislike that black table, and an article with a cleanup template can not become featured until its prose is reworked
Priest; this article has a redundant quest section, and it doesn't have external links
Rogue, also no no external links section, and the title isn't bold
Shaman, *gasp* no pictures of totems?, also, the section headers were poorly done
Warlock, the section 'Macros' needs to go, and an external links section needs to be created
Warrior, too short
Human, nice
Dwarf, rather short
Night elf, nice
Gnome, the big quote is unprofessional, and the section names aren't logical
Draenei, section "Controversy, confusion, and retcons" has gotta go
Orc, no WoW screenshots
Undead, "Opinion and analysis" should be removed
Tauren, nice
Troll, nice
Blood elf, get rid of "Dark Destiny" and "Controversy"

I hope that helps. IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 04:36, 9 April 2007 (EDT)
I'll look at those and try to make them good enough to feature Shigamori (talk · contr)
The info from dark destiny section of blood elves simply needs to be merged somewhere else in the article, not elimited entirely. It is a valid piece of information.Baggins 16:05, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

For further discussion of any of the above listed articles, please make a new section! Kirkburn talk contr 14:07, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

European forums Edit

Good enough ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kos (talk · contr).

  • Oppose. "She's cute. What else can you say about her? Well, she's witty, atleast more often than not. She's also very often quite irritating. She might be some kind of a cross between a Gnome and a Troll." That quote should sum up what kind of horrible POV and non notable information is in that article. This article is definetely not good enough. Also, it wasn't necessary to mess with the layout of this page. IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 13:34, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes, but isn't this the place of featured articles? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kos (talk · contr).
Yeah, the nomination in the correct section now (I moved it), but for future reference please don't list new nominations on the bottom of the page and use level 3 headers (===) as opposed to level 2 headers (==). Otherwise, welcome to the wiki :) IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 15:26, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose As per Apollo. Kirkburn talk contr 05:29, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose As per Apollo, also --Sky (t · c · w) 19:40, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose Irrelevant to WoW as a whole, article is disorganized, offers no new and/or interesting information. -- TUSVA ~ T | C 19:54, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
It doesn't have to be relevant to WoW. It just has to be well put together, which it obviously is not. :P --Sky (t · c · w) 20:00, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Doesn't have to be relevant to WoW? What's this Wiki called again? :P -- TUSVA ~ T | C 14:40, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
From the main page, and I quote: WoWWiki is a wiki dedicated to cataloguing Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft Universe (with a focus, though not priority, on World of Warcraft), covering the entire Warcraft series of games, RPG reference books, strategy guides, novels and other sources. It would seem it doesn't have to be about WoW. However, this is a moot discussion, for the page hardly meets FA standards. ;) --Sky (t · c · w) 14:44, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Melean Edit

I just made this page it isnt about my half-elf character Melean it tells how that character inherits the name from the ancient Night Elf General of the Kaldorei resistance in the War of the Ancients. Its not just mere coincidence that he picks up a name like that since it belonged to an ancient Night Elf General.

Mainly this one is about the Ancient Night Elf Warrior and at the end it tells how it became that the half elf inherits his name.

--Melean 00:58, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose: Needs a bit of work.
    • Fanfic/PlayerCharacter tag needed.
    • Rename without the (night elf), unless you have other characters named Melean.
    • Reorganize the headings (it shouldn't be in increasing levels of headings)
    • You have your character as an "almighty" renowned person. RP no-no.
    • Not to mention the images colliding and making the paragraphs wrap around images. There's an issue of style here.
Pzychotix (talk · contr) 01:07, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I have just now a few questions. 1: How do you make the Fanfic character tag 2: What do you mean by reorganize the headings 3: And what do you mean of images colliding

Now stuff I state 1: Night elf part means he is the night elf form. I have another character named Melean as a half elf thats why i have the (Night Elf) tag. 2: What you you mean as im making him an almight renowned person Melean 02:26, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Strongest oppose you could imagine. Apart from the problems Pzychotix raised, I don't think that this article should even be in the main namespace. This character is roleplay-based and hasn't been introduced into any of the Warcraft franchises by Blizzard. And no, unless you can pull a Leeroy Jenkins or Alamo, your character is unlikely to become "renowned".IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 08:55, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. I just don't think Rp characters should be featured. Stopa 16:14, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Grollok Edit

I am making a video on WoW Model Viewer and this is one of my major characters, the great Orc warrior Grollok, what do you guys think, he is not renowned as like "The Greatest Warrior since Grom Hellscream" in the story he is a hero but not like Thrall, what 'da ya guys think?--Melean 00:39, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose: - Fanfic, silly, and speculation articles do not belong as featured articles, regardless of quality. Yet again.--SWM2448 00:57, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Fucking NO already: People, noone thinks your fanfic characters are important/funny enough to get them on the front page, get over it already IconSmall Tauren MaleStöpa(talk) 20:12, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
