**'''Oppose''' for now. Needs more in-line citations to indicate information sources (some of the information presented I don't recognise from any Borg episodes). Some minor content problems have only just been raised on the talk page (by [[User:Pd THOR|THOR]] himself!) - these issues must be resolved before it can be supported. -- [[User:DarkHorizon|Michael Warren]] | [[User talk:DarkHorizon|''Talk'']] 17:20, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)

**'''Opposed'''; basicly the same reasoning, I merged this with [[Borg assimilation]] a few weeks back and I didn't give it a hard [[canon]] check. Until the info can be clearly referenced I think it should stay unfeatured. [[User:Tyrant|Tyrant]] 18:23, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)Tyrant

* [[Klaa]]. Minor charcter, self nomination. Written in five edits or less (!!), several months ago; upon recent review, the quality still seems to stand. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 20:16, 27 May 2005 (UTC)
 
** '''Oppose''' -- due to several spelling and grammatical errors. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 08:37, 29 May 2005 (UTC)
 
*** Why did I not see this coming? This is just petty. There are '''no''' spelling errors, much less "several" and the grammar is better than a lot of other stuff that has successfully passed through here. In fact, the more I look at this, it ''almost'' seems to be something of a ''personal attack'', which I do believe is uncalled for in M/A. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 08:56, 29 May 2005 (UTC)
 
** I '''support''' this article, but if the two of you could stop throwing mud it would make me happy. [[User:Tyrant|Tyrant]] 12:54, 29 May 2005 (UTC)Tyrant
 
** '''Support''', but I'm not sure why the second or third images of Klaa are needed (with respect to the [[Memory Alpha:Image use policy|image use policy]])... the third one in particular is not very clear and they really don't show anything new that can't be seen in the first image. -- [[User:SmokeDetector47|SmokeDetector47]] // [[User_talk:SmokeDetector47|''talk'']] 04:43, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
*** I've removed the last picture -- despite the poor quality, it ''was'' the best image of [[Todd Bryant]]'s character from ST6, which is mentioned in the article. Additionally, I still think the 2nd picture of Klaa at the scope balances the article out -- as in: the article ''is'' long enough to support a second picture of Klaa placed in it to balance the article out from being too "top heavy". The fact that Klaa is sitting at the weapons scope goes along quite well with the theme that he was "thirsting for a target that would fight back." But I do have an alternative in mind as well to put in it's place. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 06:47, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
:::*Re: Tyrant -- Frankly, I agree. But then again, I've made no personal attacks here. All I've done is simply state that the "oppose" is ''purely'' based on a ''personal'' nature and that there are '''no''' spelling errors, nor any ''glaring'' grammarical errors to warrant an obviously ''biased'' vote. In reality, that alone should void the vote. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 06:47, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
::::*Sorry, but neither have I made any personal attacks. I wouldn't oppose a nomination unless I could back it up. If you want me to list grammatical and spelling errors found in this article, I'd be quite happy to do that. Just tell me where, and I'll get started! --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 10:37, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
:::::*You're welcome to do so, but I think it would be much more useful if you went in and attempted to fix the errors on your own. :) -- [[User:SmokeDetector47|SmokeDetector47]] // [[User_talk:SmokeDetector47|''talk'']] 19:07, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
::::::*I've corrected most of the errors, but I still have a problem with the article - in quite a few places, Klaa's actions are stated, not his ship's. For example, "he made his intentions to attack clear, by approaching the ''Enterprise'' fully [[cloaking device|cloaked]]." His ship was cloaked, not Klaa himself! I don't know how to change this, however. The errors that I knew how to correct, I have. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 20:22, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
:::::::* How's - "As his ship approached the system, Klaa made the intentions to attack clear, by approaching with his cruisers cloaking device engaged and it's weapons fully charged." sound? It sound to me more in the ballpark. And although it did somewhat sound like Klaa had a cloaking device, it is awefully difficult to talk Klaa without mentioning his ship. (Also, just a minor observation but <nowiki>[[United Federation of Planets|Federation]]</nowiki> is unnecessary, as both [[United Federation of Planets]] and [[Federation]] end up at the same page...so its somewhat redundant. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 22:31, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose'''. I would like to see a table with biographical information before this becomes a featured article[[User:Jaz|Jaz]]
 
** Not all characters that have been nominiated in the past have tables, nor is it written anywhere that they are required. Unless it is for a major character with a lot of history, it tends to add more clutter to the page than help it. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 22:31, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' - Added the table and divisions (the divisions I'm not perfectly happy with, could someone maybe rename them?) but for some reason, in my opinion Articles always look better with divisors. Was thinking of the last one as "Demotion". - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 01:00, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' [[User:AmdrBoltz|AmdrBoltz]] 01:18, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. On a sidenote, I would like to add that the two only objections I've read so far just don't make any sense. 1. The spelling and grammer seems perfect. 2. A sidebar with "biographical information" would just end up with a lot of "Unknowns". We don't know Klaa's birthdate, nor his place of birth, nor the names of his parents, etc. Such a sidebar wouldn't add any value to the article, therefore. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 17:14, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
:: The only grammarical errors in the article were a few issues with tense or plural, nothing big. So how does one known when a consensus has been determined? The supports clearly outweigh the opposes, especially in respect to what ''was'' opposed. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 17:47, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
**Will those opposed please re-evaulate. There is no reason we cannot make this a featured article with this much community interest. If anyone still has problems, fix them! [[User:Tyrant|Tyrant]] 18:25, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)Tyrant
 
*Frankly, I am insulted by this remark - "On a sidenote, I would like to add that the two only objections I've read so far just don't make any sense. 1. The spelling and grammer seems perfect." The spelling and grammar have been changed since the opposition was made. Why not research the history of an issue before ignorantly stating that it doesn't "make any sense"!
 
*However, I now choose to '''support''' this article since problems with the spelling and/or grammar in the article are now much more minor than they were when I originally opposed the nomination. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 23:50, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)
 
 
'''Support''' to end this discussion. [[User:Excelsior|Excelsior]] 12:27, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)
