****''Any'' article can be a featured article, as long as it's good enough. The length of an article should not be considered here, it's about the quality of the writing, and of course all available information should be included. Since I don't remember the episodes referred to, Michael could be correst as far as I know in saying these references do not support "facts" written here. That should be checked by those who ''have'' seen the episodes. As last remark, I would suggest not using the two symbols of the powers involved in this conflict in such a fashion - IMO it looks rather akward. I don't think there are any images of the actual conflict available, though... For now, '''opposed''', but could make a well FA in the future. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 16:24, 23 Feb 2005 (GMT)

* [[Cloaking device]]; Excellently written article, makes good use of images. Makes superb usage of available information, as well as duly noting inconsistancies. | [[User:Pd THOR|THOR]] 23:24, 13 Feb 2005 (GMT)
 
**I don't seem to miss any information. Good references, nice accompanying pictures, extensive write-up. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 16:27, 15 Feb 2005 (GMT)
 
**'''Supported''' [[User:Tyrant|Tyrant]] 17:10, 15 Feb 2005 (GMT)Tyrant
 
**'''Supported''' - All the important points are there. Solid effort! -- [[User:Balok|Balok]] 18:36, 15 Feb 2005 (GMT)
 
** '''Support.''' -- [[User:SmokeDetector47|SmokeDetector47]] 00:53, 16 Feb 2005 (GMT)
 
**'''Needs More'''. A few things come to mind that are missing, upon further review, such as references about [[chroniton]]s, and a passing reference to "[[Past Tense, Part I]]". Also, "[[The Die is Cast]]", "[[Let That Be Your Last Battlefield]]", "[[When the Bough Breaks]]" and "[[The Emissary]]" all contain useful references, or at the least, unexplored references to cloaks.--[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 17:48, 18 Feb 2005 (EST)
 
***What does "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" say about cloaks? There is an invisible budget-saving ship, but it does not use a cloak. The info on that is already at [[stealth]], where it belongs. As for the others, I either haven't seen them ("Emissary", "Bough Breaks") or don't recall any relevance ("Past Tense" and "Die is Cast"). -- [[User:Steve Mollmann|Steve]] 21:01, 23 Feb 2005 (GMT)
 
:::: Just because you haven't watched an episode, does not mean it's information is void. For specific reasons, they all possess nuggets, or the seed to other areas or abilities yet unrevealed in said article. All I am saying is that more research is required. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 23:32, 23 Feb 2005 (GMT)

Nominations with objections

  • Federation-Cardassian War. Self-Nominated. Think I've got all references to this conflict. Tyrant 19:19, 21 Feb 2005 (GMT)Tyrant
    • Oppose - I'm sorry, but I really don't think this is good enough to make it as a featured article. Compared with other FAs of the same type, it's of significantly lesser quality. Whilst I recognise that this is because it has only been referred to in dialogue and snippets over half-a-dozen seasons, and may be comprehensive in terms of its coverage of what has been said, it doesn't feel like a Featured Article. In addition, the sectioning of the article is awkward, and indeed, poor. The small size of the article makes such sectioning unnecessary (and an "Overview" section is always frowned upon - such information should just be the initial paragraph, and not starting with a section header). Moreover, the content isn't correct - there has been no explanation as to the cause of the war, the references provided offer no evidence to support the paragraph. -- Michael Warren | Talk 21:15, 21 Feb 2005 (GMT)
      • Can an article of this type be featured? As it cannot have the quality of the other events because the necessary information simply does not exist. The sectioning has been removed, as has the misinformation, which for the record came from Maquis, I trusted it because that article is currently featured. Still maybe lacking feel. Tyrant 19:29, 22 Feb 2005 (GMT)Tyrant
        • Any article can be a featured article, as long as it's good enough. The length of an article should not be considered here, it's about the quality of the writing, and of course all available information should be included.
