Netherwing dragonflight

The article itself needs a bit of work, but I think it could be a good FA =) --ρςұκε®7 talkcontr 22:22, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

  • Oppose. This article actually needs a lot of work. It doesn't have a bold title, it has capital letters where they shouldn't be, it doesn't have a picture but does cite one as a source (which by itself is already kinda weird) and lacks a lot of lore info. My three suggestions are: 1) wait until 2.1 comes out watch as more and more information on the Wing becomes available.. 2) improve the article and 3) please don't nominate articles for FA if they 'need a bit of work' (which is an understatement in this case). Featured articles should display WoWWiki's finest work, which this article really isn't (yet).IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 02:52, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
  • Oppose Stressing what Apollo said: ...needs a lot of work. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 03:02, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
Changing my stance to neutral, as it doesn't hold any special importance above any other faction page. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 01:55, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment I've given Netherwing a big update, and merged in stuff from the nether drake article. It needs fleshing out, but should be a readale guide now. Kirkburn talk contr 22:51, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
    • An update on this - the only problem is that too many red links makes this unusable atm. Kirkburn talk contr 13:39, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Comprehensive and tidy - though could do with more of an introduction. Kirkburn talk contr 19:49, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Still opposing, but for a different reason. This article now encompasses an awesome guide, however there is no lore information at all. Can't someone dig through all the quest dialogs and come up with something decent?IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAMBER(RΘCK) 08:11, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose: I agree with AMBER(RΘCK). --IconSmall DeathknightBuraisu (Talk · Contr) 10:34, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. Remarking as support - there's now an intro, and the page is pretty tidy. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:10, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Teron Gorefiend

This article might need a little clean up, but this is a great character with lots of lore behind him. He is the focus of (imo) the best BC quests, and he is boss in the newly released Black Temple. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mlucero (talk · contr).

  • Oppose. The article has no references, doesn't clarify why Gorefiend ended up in service of Illidan, has a section which contains only one sentence and lastly it has images that say "(before patch 2.1)", but doesn't clarify what the post-patch 2.1 situation is.IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 17:13, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment. Definately needs an overhaul, but could certainly be a future candidate. Kirkburn talk contr 05:30, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment. It doesn't clarify what the post-patch 2.1 situation is? yes it does. Read the text of the last pic.--SWM2448 20:39, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Neutral: needs to be cleaned up and reworked in some areas. --IconSmall DeathknightBuraisu (Talk · Contr) 10:41, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment: I'm not sure if this was what you were looking for, but I fleshed out the biography a bit (based on in-game and book info) and also explained the meaning of "pre-Patch 2.1" and "post-Patch 2.1". Hope this is satisfactory. --Joshmaul 02:59, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Support: The article has been improved massively since I last commented on it. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:12, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Gem

I am new to the whole FA thing. However I find this article well laid out, and extremely useful. I'm not sure exactly the qualifications required to become a FA, so I thought I would just nominate and see what others think Tecnobrat t/c 14:40, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

  • Support. Useful, useful, useful. Three hoorays for this article.IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 05:08, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose Useful... and not much else. It's more of a link farm than anything that could possibly be improved, except with the addition of more gems, or a patch changing the existing ones. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 05:14, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment - note that this page is already linked on the sidebar. Kirkburn talk contr 05:23, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose The very first paragraph is basically wrong: A gem is generally an item that can be placed into a socket of another item to give that item additional bonuses, powers and/or procs. A gem is not an item that can be placed into a socket, but may be an item that can be placed into a socket. It was supposed to be called a jewel. Strictly speaking, a gem is a raw ingredient from mining or prospecting. --Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7:10 PM PDT 24 Oct 2007
  • Support: I agree, it is useful and would make a good FA. --IconSmall DeathknightBuraisu (Talk · Contr) 10:50, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Support: Switching to support, due to the new way features articles work. It's pretty clean and concise, even if a lot if just links. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:13, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

What Wrath of the Lich King is not

Feedback? :P --Adys 19:51, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Support - I am very amused. It's definitely different from the sort of articles I've seen here before, but seems pertinent to the immediate post-BlizzCon 07 WoW fan environment. --Jiyambi t || c 19:48, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose: - Fanfic, silly, and speculation articles do not belong as featured articles, regardless of quality.--SWM2448 20:04, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment - I like it, but I worry that it could become a focus for vandalism. Kirkburn talk contr 20:01, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Per Sandwich. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 21:22, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support: Many People Blaming this Game Sucks Its a fun artical and its NOT Vamdalism Dragonnagaofthewater 19:53, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment - He did not say it WAS vandalism, he said because it has no factual grounding it could easialy BE vandalized. --SWM2448 17:22, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment - Ok But it Can be become a focus on Vandalism but we dont know yet because it isn`t featured Yet. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dragonnagaofthewater (talk · contr).
  • Oppose I love this one too much too see it vandalized! Perhaps if it could be made uneditable, to preserve it's originality from random people trying to "improve" it, then I would accept this. -Ose 22:03, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Neutral Hah! Its great, funny and indeed truthful. The problem: Is it really worth frontpage time and that informative in regards to overall WoW lore or gameplay? I thought not.
  • Oppose Not exactly the type of article WoWWiki would want as their feature article. Silly articles are nice, silly articles are funny, but WoWWiki isn't about silly articles... Vampyrefyre (talk) 18:48, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Death knight

Though most of it is still speculation (and will be until someone gets to the point to make one), there seems to be a lot about the Death Knight (that will be) in-game. I think this is the biggest piece of info since the announcement of Outland and the new races - everyone seems to be talking (and debating) a lot about what to expect...so why not put it on the front page, eh? --Joshmaul 07:31, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose Just not good enough yet by the fact that we have nearly nothing on it; how runes work, what the other spells will be, etc. Iirc, it already is featured on the front page in the news box, just not in the FA box. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 01:52, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose It seems that, at this point, a lot of information about this new hero class is still in speculation rather than fact. It would be great if there are solid info present. Maybe some time in the future when there are more confirmed information - Constarcy, US: Fenris 2:30PM Aug/28/2007
  • Comment Revisiting this - the article is much improved now, any opinions on the current copy? Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:02, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose I'm oppose to this until the expansion goes live. SuperN (talk) 13:54, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Support: Seems like a fairly appropriate time to add it. It's pretty well fleshed out, though could possibly do with a bit of cleanup. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:15, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Siege weapon

There have been worse suggestions. It is coming in WotLK. It is one of my favorite topics and I wrote most of it. Who does not like siege?--SWM2448 20:44, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose. There is not enough in-game info, maybe it will be good enough when the expantion comes out and you know for sure about them and how they are played. It is too much of a bullet-pointed list, too.--SWM2448 20:44, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
  • What the fuck? You propose an article, only to oppose its nomination afterwards? I don't get it. Oh, and yeah; naturally I opposse because this article is not elaborate enough.IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAMBER(RΘCK) 09:17, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Temporary Oppose :Just not Enough Game Info lets wait until it comes out K? Dragonnagaofthewater 21:16, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Weak support: There's not a huge amount of info, but there's only so much you can say. It does however, importantly, link to and describe the various types found in the expansion. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:17, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Roleplaying age

It'd help alot of roleplayers figuring out there Age, Weight and Height for other Races -- Chaosweaver 12:48, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Interesting - but part of the problem would be the fan-aspect of the article. At the moment it is essentially a personal article - for featuring it needs citations and to be less "personal". Kirkburn  talk  contr 22:08, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
    • Comment There's an age article around here somewhere for the majority of the races... Hmm. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 23:21, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
    • Oppose: Still unsourced, too "fanfic-y". Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:19, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian

Very good lore, plus it may become relevant when Naxxramas returns in the upcoming expansion- -- Ose 21:36, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Oppose Not good supporting reasons, for one, and two, not really enough to feature it with. --Sky (talk | con | wh) 23:04, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose: The way you describe it, you think it will still be there when Naxxramas is moved to Northrend. How do we know this? --Joshmaul 01:50, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment: the information could probably be improved. It also needs a better "background" style section, plus info regarding the above. Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:56, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
    • Comment: To expand on the above, the "Information" section is waaay too many unrelated bullet points. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:20, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Lunar Festival

It's topical. How about it? --Eirik Ratcatcher 17:18, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Comment - unfortunately missed the boat this time. Closer to the time next year would be a good plan. Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:20, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Support: Features are now on a rotation, so I don't see a problem with including this now. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:28, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Valiance Keep

WotLK is a hot topic now. Look at all the citation on this page!--SWM2448 00:31, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Oppose until we have more info. Great choice when it's filled out :) Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:19, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

PLAYXPERT

Why on earth is this featured? Its barely any tekst, it doesnt look all that great and its about something unreleased! It seems more like paid advertisement then a really featured article, as much as I want it to be released... --Pimmeh (talk) 05:06, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Agree Removed from FA rotation. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 21:46, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment: The reason was that Playxpert supports Wikia and WoWWiki (we are a built in default option). Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:23, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Highborne

Just perfect article! Great FA. Large, neutral and informative. -- M1330 (talk) 07:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Support Very good idea, it has great information and I have often refered to it, well...sometimes... :)--Pimmeh (talk) 08:47, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Support: Agreed, it's pretty good. Lots of images, easy to read and not a common topic. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:30, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Ragefire Chasm

It is one of the first dungeons in Wow for many Horde players co it should be mentioned.

  • Weak support: It's fairly short, but it covers everything it needs to. The instance itself is just ugly and boring though :P Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:33, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Weak support:Only cause I can't think of a reason not to oppose it.SuperN (talk) 17:36, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Murloc

Everyone's favorite monster to encounter, also Blizzard's mascotte, murlocs deserve a reference on the homepage!

Support I agree that this page should be added to the FA. Also please sign your posts. SuperN (talk) 14:02, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Oppose The article starts with a 'Cleanup' tag. That's never a good sign. Alltat (talk) 13:25, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment: Good topic, but cleanup tag needs to be dealt with first. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:34, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Gul'dan

I've never done this before but the whole article seems pretty well done to me, it doesn't have anything missing that I know of or grammatical errors. BobNamataki (talk) 18:06, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
