Seems like there are articles with less work put into them that are featured, so this one definitely deserves it. I like the navigation for the mirror universe episodes, too. [[User:Coke|Coke]] 21:06, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

'''Self-nomination (sort of)''' Possibly the first actor page to be nominated as a featured article, the page for our pal [[Odo]] is about as complete as it gets. Although I did not create the initial article, I have throroughly rewritten and expanded the article to its present state. As you can see, it not only describes his roles on ''Trek'', but also throroughly covers major his non-''Trek'' credits, including those which also involved other ''Trek'' alumni. All necessary biographical information is present, as well, and it also includes a Trivia section. I wish I could take credit for the nifty "Additional characters" montage, though. --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 08:08, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
*Great job with the actor page, now how about giving Odo himself a makeover? Come on, the [[Odo]] page looks shorter than some of the one-episode characters! But seriously, great job on the page. I'll read it tomorrow - I just had to rant about Odo's page before I go to bed. :) I would do it myself, but I'm not familiar enough with the later seasons of DS9, plus I have the [[Occupation of Bajor|Cardies]] to deal with first. --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 08:36, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' Shran and others have created a good article there. [[User:Tough Little Ship|Tough Little Ship]] 13:13, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. Definitely well researched, and even some Jeopardy info like the part about his relation to Napoleon. --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 15:01, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
** Most of that was found on IMDB, so it didnt take much digging. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 04:36, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
::* ''Hey!!!'' I take offense to that. :P --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 09:09, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 00:13, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
:*I changed the article ''slightly'' since I nominated it. I think it looks better this way. It shouldn't affect any previous votes, but I just thought I'd mention it. --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 02:05, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
::*You misrepresented yourself! The article should be put up for deletion! But actually, I think it's distracting to get through all that info about him and then see the TOC. Maybe it will flow better if you make a separate section(s) for the bio info. --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 02:16, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
:::*Hm, I dunno, I'll try it. Oh, and I'm assuming you were kidding about the deletion thing. ;) --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 02:23, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
::::*Okay, how's it look now? :-) --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 02:32, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
::::*Much better - and as for the deletion comment... Hmm, I plead the fifth. --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 02:40, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
* Oh, why not...'''support'''. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 05:56, 10 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
:*That's it? Is that a good "why not?" or a bad "why not?" :P Did I disappoint with my nomination? --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 10:04, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
:**Well, I don't have any reasons to reject it, but at the same time, I'm really not sure I want to see a zillion featured articles like this either...so lets say I'm being generous ;) --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 04:36, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
::*I'm sure it thrills you to no end to see another episode nominated. :P --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 04:46, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
* '''Support'''. Hey Shran, I think I told you once that it'd be unlikely that an actor/actresses page would get featured. :P I take that back. Although, for future reference, "current whereabouts" should be monitored cause ya never know when a show will get canceled, or something. None the less, Great work! (I could swear I've voted on this already) - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 06:41, 10 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
* I completely '''Support''' this article to become a Featured Article. It's very in-depth for an Actor's Page. [[User:Tacticalogre|Tacticalogre]]
 
* '''Support''' on the basis of quality, but I don't know if actor pages are really the best thing to feature. [[User:Coke|Coke]] 21:13, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
:* Actually, I was wondering about that, as well, but they told me on the [[Memory Alpha talk:Nominations for featured articles|talk page]] that there's no reason why actor/actress articles can't be nominated, so I went for it. :) --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 02:39, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
::*Actually, I think ''that's'' where I wrote it. Hm, but it turns out not; guess I imagined it ''blue skin'' x_x - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 22:50, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Nog

I think this article has come a long way with a lot of work from different users. It's a good character, and a chance for at least one aspect of the Ferengi to be represented in the FA lists. I was the anon. user who originally added the structure to the article and since then a lot more has been done. Most major events are there, including his participation in several key events of the Dominion War, notably the The Siege of AR-558. All in all, I think it deserves consideration. Logan 5 02:27, 9 Sep 2005 (UTC)

  • it reads well, but i'm wondering because it links to The Siege of AR-558 as an event in the article. should there be a separate page called Siege of AR-558 for that? the link points to the episode page. Makon 04:03, 10 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • I wondered about that myself. I think a short term solution would be to change the link to AR-558, as I'm not sure how an article on the event would differ too much from the content there. Logan 5 04:29, 10 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Tobyk777 04:20, 10 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment The format of this article is like a timeline; we definitly know enough about him to have it in the usual character format don't we? I know I'd personally like to see it that way. (ie: Beverly Crusher, William T. Riker, T'Pol) - AJHalliwell 02:39, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Indeed, where's the section about his relationships with Jake, women, Sisko, and even the Klingons? Remember how they ignored him at first? -Coke 02:44, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The lack of information about Nog's relationship with Jake is the killer for this article. It would almost be like doing Will Riker's article without mentioning his relationship with Deanna Troi. I also think that his personal character development with making himself heard in front of the Klingons was pretty important too.--Scimitar 07:11, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose for same reasons stated by Scimitar. --From Andoria with Love 10:40, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Ferengi

perfect in every way BajoranBrouhaha 09:06, 4 Sep 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose. It's an extensive article but hardly perfect. I'd personally like to see a bit more on their culture. I don't think that the references are complete either.--Scimitar 00:57, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose Yes I am oppsoing this one contrary to popular belief that I support everything. There is no list of appearances. The article has no link to the rules of Aquisition that I can find. The refrences are incomplete. There is no list of Ferangi, or at least a link to another aticle with a list. Tobyk777 02:11, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment - Did you read the article? There is at least one link to the Rules, and there is a link to a list of Ferengi (see the People section). And the references are pretty darn near complete, at least from all of the major Ferengi episodes on DS9. I'm sure there are some missing but most likely they are off-hand references in episodes that don't focus on the Ferengi. If they are missing, I'm hoping someone like yourself will put them in. A list of appearances would be good though... Logan 5 16:23, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
      • I did read the article completely. I didn't see a link to the rules or to a list a ferangi. I might have glaced over it while reading. Let me also point out that in the comment ;preceeding this one you used the phrase "I'm sure there are some missing" that means that it's incomplete. Tobyk777 00:16, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
        • "that means that it's incomplete." Uh-huh, which is one of my stated reasons for opposing it below. I was only pointing out that two of your reasons were inaccurate. Logan 5 03:34, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
          • I think that someone went in and revised it. now I count 3 links to the rules. I didn't see any before. Tobyk777 04:30, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment - I think this should be removed, based on the fact it was nomiated by a blocked user. --Alan del Beccio 05:35, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
      • How can a blocked user nominate something? They're blocked, right?
        • Well, that would be because they were blocked after they nominated it because they turned out to be a vandal...also, please remember to sign your comments with --~~~~. Thanks, Alan del Beccio
  • Mild Oppose. I did a lot of work on this page myself but I feel like it's a bit wordy and probably does not capture many references from episodes that don't focus on the Ferengi (though I'm almost positive that all of the major eps are there). I'd feel more comfortable supporting the nomination after some other users had a go-round on the article to make sure there aren't important pieces of info missing. Logan 5 16:23, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment. You know, even though I have a slight opposition to this article in its current state, I have to wonder how Bolians can be a featured article with such relatively little content and almost nothing in depth, and yet Ferengi is not worth it? The Bolian article is almost entirely anectdotal and yet certainly there is more known about the Ferengi, and the article is more complete, than many we've seen as FAs. I'm just starting to wonder if people just don't like the Ferengi. Just a thought/observation.
  • Mild Oppose. It is an extensive, well-written and well-researched article, but it just seems... incomplete to me. As Scimitar pointed out, more info on their culture would be nice. And as Gvsualan pointed out... this was nominated by a now-banned user. --From Andoria with Love 02:57, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
