I'd like to renominate this article. It has not only been nominated once previously, but has now had two peer reviews (the latter of which was last commented upon 2 weeks ago), so I reckon that, by now, it should be up to scratch. I still personally believe the article is well written and thoroughly covers the topic of Gorkon. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to it. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 10:50, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''', as I did before.--[[User:31dot|31dot]] 11:35, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''', I did so before the "tinkering", only fair I do so after it;)--[[User:Sennim|Sennim]] 12:27, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 18:16, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. [[User:ThomasHL|Tom]] 21:17, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''': Much better, though perhaps we could also include a quotes section? He did have some good lines in the movie. Regardless, my support stands. --| [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] <sup>[[User Talk:TrekFan|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Open a channel</span>]]</sup> 22:30, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
 
:'''Comment''': Why you didn't bring this idea of a quotes section up during the multiple peer reviews or the earlier FA nomination beats me. But that's okay (besides, maybe you just thought of it, or something). Aside from the point of wanting to avoid an issue of lack-of-stability, I personally find it hard to see what the quotes section would add that isn't already available in either the in-universe portion of this article, or in the "memorable quotes" part of the page about {{film|6}}. Thanks for the votes already cast. If there's anyone else who would also like to contribute their say to this (even if it is an "oppose" vote), please feel free to go right ahead. :) --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 00:19, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
 
::What's with the attitude? Could it be that I possibly haven't been on Memory Alpha for two or three weeks and thus didn't have a chance to comment in the peer review? I was just making a suggestion and you will notice that I still offered my supporting vote. Next time I won't bother. --| [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] <sup>[[User Talk:TrekFan|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Open a channel</span>]]</sup> 01:12, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
 
:::Defiant, TF still supported it despite his suggestion; and even FAs can be improved after the fact. TF, the last nomination of this article was (in short) derailed by another user who was here intermittently without participating in peer reviews or other requests for comment so Defiant might be feeling a bit frustrated. In any event, further comment not related to this nomination should take place elsewhere.--[[User:31dot|31dot]] 01:28, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
 
:Yeah, I'll admit that's the truth of the situation (though, in all honesty, I tried my utmost to not let that frustration seep into my reply, which was very hard). I did try to relate that I'm happy you made the suggestion, TF, and thanked everyone (including you) for having voted. I recognize that the suggestion has ''very'' little to do with the last FA nomination process, and I feel quite grateful for the idea having been submitted, as 31dot's right again &ndash; it can potentially help progress the article after-the-fact, which I was aware of at the time of writing the reply. All in all, no offense was meant, TF, and I did appreciate you contributing the suggestion. I'd suggest, though, that nitpicks and/or further ideas not be submitted here, unless to back-up an "oppose" vote. Any other suggestions can be posted on the talk page. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 01:39, November 17, 2011 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support'''. This is a well-rounded article and a worthy candidate for FA status.&ndash;[[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] <small><sup>( [[User talk:Cleanse|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Cleanse|contribs]] )</sup></small> 01:58, November 17, 2011 (UTC)

:Returning the topic to this particular nomination, I also consider CzechOut's comments to have been helpful (I did thank ''everyone'' who has contributed to the article, implying that I was also including him/her). I still have a problem of unnecessary duplication regarding the idea of a Gorkon quotations bit, since he's in only one movie, so any and all quotes that could be arranged in a dedicated section on this page would (or should) already be available on the ''Star Trek VI'' page. We try to avoid unnecessary duplication, between pages, wherever possible/suitable, which I think ''is'' applicable in this matter. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 10:23, November 17, 2011 (UTC)

Memory Alpha  AboutPolicies and guidelinesFA policiesFA criteria → Featured article nominations

This page is for the nomination and discussion of articles that may be potentially included in Memory Alpha's list of featured articles. A featured article is an especially well-written, informative, and comprehensive article that covers all available information on a subject. If you feel one of our articles meets this criteria, you may suggest it here in accordance with the nomination policy. For a list of articles previously nominated, see the archive.

To nominate an article, start a new discussion under "Nominations without objections" with a heading containing a link back to the article you want to suggest. Provide a two to three-paragraph summary of the article (usually the article's lead-in if possible) with an appropriate picture, this will be what is displayed in the portals if the nomination is successful, followed by a brief reason why you feel the article should be featured. If you are nominating an article that you have worked on, please note that the nomination is a self-nomination.

Sample format:

=== [[ARTICLE]] ===
[[File:<image>|thumb|<caption>]]
<summary>
----
<reasoning> - <signature>

Once this is done, a notice that the article has been nominated as a featured article candidate should be added to the article in question by inserting {{fan}} at the top of the page, above any other templates except the article type template.

When you are commenting on a nomination, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the nomination. Nominations with objections should be moved to the appropriate section until they are resolved.

When supporting or opposing an article, please use a bullet point (by adding a * before your comment) without any indent so these will be easy to find later. General comments should be indented as usual, and, as always, please sign your nominations and comments with "~~~~".
