'''Self nomination'''. I think I've turned what was once a run-on single paragraph into a fine example of a Memory Alpha article. Not only does it cover all the onscreen facts, and is there by "Complete", but I believe it is worthy of the grand title of Featured Article. - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]]

'''Self nomination'''. Nomination was previously objected because there were far too many images on the page. That number has now been reduced to an acceptable figure for a medium-sized page. The page featured all available information on her history (with information from nearly all episodes she made a notable appearanced on) as well as an extensive "Personal relationships" section.

*'''Support'''. It looks much better now. I've corrected a few of the spelling and grammatical errors. I also corrected the glaring error of Picard giving Guinan a bottle of [[Saurian brandy]] when it was in fact [[Aldebaran whiskey]]. I think that a bit can be added on Guinan attempting to teach Data about humour but other than that I think the article is easily worthy.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 21:54, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' very complete well written.

::I suppose as my only problem with the page is the pictures, I'll '''Support''' the article, and the picture issue can be resolved after it's featured, or in process, but shouldn't affect the process. I support it for the content. - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 10:13, 20 Jul 2005 (UTC)
 
** Edit conflict resolved, save for slight dispute over image. This should be resolved on [[Memory Alpha:Images for deletion|Images for deletion]] as I nominated the [[:Image:Guinan beats Worf at phaser range.jpg|image AJHalliwell uploaded]] for deletion.

* Contrary to the image issue, a picture of young Guinan from "[[Rascals]]" still does not appear on the page. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 05:46, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)
 
:*Not any more it doesn't. I added a picture of her as a child in the appropriate section.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 07:59, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

*I've added a lot to this by expanding, adding sections, and making sure that a lot of the links had articles created. There's still several areas that could be expanded, I think, and some links that need creating. But by and large I think this is a pretty good summation and description of a species, and could be more so with community effort. It's certainly one of the most complete species pages we have from a post-TOS era (which means Klingons, Romulans, and Vulcans don't count). [[User:Logan 5|Logan 5]] 20:54, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Neutral''' Good job, but it seems to me that while there is a lot of information, it isn't nessessarily well organized. Futz around with the prospect of consolidation. [[User:1729|1729]] 23:16, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)

:*[[Rom]], not Nog, ascended to Nagus. Where would that go? Society, or Government? And it seems like we'd have to significantly expand either one to accomodate both the previous history of the Nagus and future reforms. Which leads me to think that might be better placed in the Nagus listing with only some slight, not significant, mention here. [[User:Logan 5|Logan 5]] 15:32, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''' I feel the information on society and culture can be expanded. [[User:Jaf|Jaf]] 15:43, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)Jaf

Nominations without objections

Xindi-Aquatic

Self nomination. I think I've turned what was once a run-on single paragraph into a fine example of a Memory Alpha article. Not only does it cover all the onscreen facts, and is there by "Complete", but I believe it is worthy of the grand title of Featured Article. - AJHalliwell

  • Support - I've corrected the spelling and grammar errors so pedantry won't get in the way of support for this article. Wonderfully written and exhaustive with a good choice of pictures to supplement the article.--Scimitar 22:28, 19 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Sirna Kolrami

  • I came across the article and after reworking some ordering and wording in the article I really think it qualifies as a Featured Article. — THOR 15:54, 15 Jul 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose - it may be complete but I just don't feel that it's an example of MA's best work.--Scimitar 22:47, 15 Jul 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I agree with Scimitar, this is just like the Quantum Torpedo, among many other things. A featured article doesn't only have to be complete, and informative, it has to be "Above and beyond the call of duty". This just doesn't seem to be to me. - AJHalliwell 02:16, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose Ditto. This is really concise and, though this is not likely the fault of those contributed and instead a lack of canonical intel, it just isn't worth "Featured" status.
  • Oppose. Same reasoning. --AmdrBoltz 21:02, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Journey to Babel

Self nomination, for the summary anyway. The summary appears very clear and concise, complete without reiterating the entire episode verbatim. The background information appears complete as well, and very informative (particularly on the Tellarites!). The page could well do with a few pictures (could anyone help, please?), but otherwise does not appear lacking. --CMO 19:35, 15 Jul 2005 (EST)

  • Oppose. For an episode or movie to be considered worthy I'd expect an extensive (but not overkill) summary before I'd consider nomination. As you said pictures could supplement the article. The background information is informative but I question the subjective comments such as the look on Shatner's face being convincing or saying that the guest actors were "uniformly excellent".--Scimitar 01:28, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I know, recently it's been said that it's unfair to have to have episode articles up to "Defiant-class" standards to become featured, but this one could really use some work. Although, with community help, I look foreward to what it could become ;-) - AJHalliwell 02:16, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)
