'''Comment''', without changing my vote, there is one minor style format issue that I just remembered, Is it not customary to have the BG/Apocrypha sections of in-universe articles (which this one is) start with bulletpoints (each paragraph starting with *)? I remember one of the admins reminding me a few years back, that while this was not policy, it had become the most commonly used format..--[[User:Sennim|Sennim]] ([[User talk:Sennim|talk]]) 10:09, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

:I believe that bullet points are the norm for episode summaries but in character articles and the like, we use paragraphs. I too used to use bullet points, but all my edits kept getting reverted by Sulfur with edit summaries along the lines of "use paragraphs". --| [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] <sup>[[User Talk:TrekFan|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Open a channel</span>]]</sup> 10:20, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

Notice
It has been suggested that this article should be renamed to Memory Alpha:Featured article nominations.
You can discuss this suggestion on the talk page.
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 on the main page 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 "~~~~".

William Ross

WilliamRoss2375
William Ross (2375)

William J. Ross was a human male who served as a Starfleet officer in the mid- to late-24th century. As an Admiral, Ross took command of military operations during the Dominion War and led the Allied forces during the Battle of Cardassia, later presiding over the signing of the Treaty of Bajor, which ended the war.

A seasoned Starfleet officer, Ross was stationed at Starbase 375 from 2374 and played an active role in the co-ordination of Starfleet and Allied forces in the region. He was present for, and endorsed, Captain Benjamin Sisko's plan to retake starbase Deep Space 9 from Dominion forces and was involved in the planning for the First Battle of Chin'toka.

The following year, Ross was placed in the middle of a dispute over Romulan plasma torpedo]]es on the Bajoran moon of Derna which led to a blockade of the moon by Colonel Kira Nerys. He was later instrumental in avoiding armed conflict by convincing the Romulans to remove the weapons. Ross later commanded Starfleet forces in the final battle of the war, the Battle of Cardassia, resulting in victory over the Dominion.


I would like to nominate the William Ross article for consideration as a featured article. I have done a considerable amount of work on this over recent weeks with regards to adding missing in-universe information and the addition of what I believe to be a comprehensive background section. Following this, I placed the article on a peer review which has since concluded and I now believe that it is a stable, complete and interesting article on one of Deep Space Nine's most memorable recurring characters. --| TrekFan Open a channel 09:22, March 3, 2014 (UTC)

  • Support, impressive re-write, though in-universe stuff is not quite my forte, it seems to be as complete as memory serves, also organization of article is top-notch...--Sennim (talk) 12:43, March 3, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Sennim! --| TrekFan Open a channel 17:51, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
