Pre-July

Fifth Aenderian Republic

Nominator: User:Jaydenfromcanada 6:28PM 2 January 2019 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Tsar Stefan I (talk) 3:20PM, 5 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE For such a large page I would expect more citations. There are areas I feel could be condensed and others that could be expanded greatly, such as an expansion of the foreign affairs section and condensing of the history section User: Gb555 8 jan 2020 3:32pm
    • COMMENT Hey, thanks for the feedback! This is quite the average amount of citations for a page of that size in MicroWiki at least, but at the final note it is your opinion and I will respect that. Regarding the expansion of the foreign affairs section, it is that short for a certain reason; Aenderia does not have many diplomatic affairs with other nations (though we are improving!) and for the history section, Aenderia has a lot of information; a majority of the information in the history section is already condensed. Thank you through for the feedback! -User:Jaydenfromcanada 12:11AM 8 January 2020 (ET)
  • SUPPORT --ThatMLGDorito (talk) 05:08, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT --Simmascoppe 05:09, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE So close! Just a few spelling mistakes and things I would phrase better. For example, "It failed pretty badly and thus was unsuccessful" could simply be "The impeachment was unsuccessful", and if it was a known event for being a failure you could state so after that. I forgot which part it was in otherwise I would fix it, but somewhere it says "undemocratic-ally" but undemocratically is a word. Other than that, sources? Check. Images? Check. Nicely expanded? Check. So close!
    • COMMENT Hey, thanks for the feedback! All issues should be fixed. User:Jaydenfromcanada 11:48PM 17 January 2020
  • SUPPORT Chau Khang (talk) 11:04am, 22 January 2020 (ICT)
  • SUPPORT --Emperor Anthony I (talk) 07:44, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT meets the criteria. -ricky sup? 18:50, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Definitely a good article, I just find the formatting around some places to be quite awkward. I would remove the history in the etymology section, make the formatting of images in the Lycon's First Term, the Second Aenderese Political Crisis: Resigning Crisis, the The Fifth Republic and the Degense sections a bit better, look for a way to better represent text conversations in Discord (an example of a template I'm working on for conversation with MSN messenger is located here), remove the history in the Parties and Election section, replace the "Коммунистическая Партия Республики Андерии" name with a translation and that in small next beneath it, merge the Official Name, English Name, French Name, Vietnamese Name, Russian Name and Spanish Name columns into one, remove the Special Administrative Region and Federal Dominion sections and make the National Holidays section a bit better. Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:15, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
    • COMMENT Thanks for the feedback, will definitely take a look at some of your recommendations. Regarding your statement with the Коммунистическая Партия Республики Андерии party, that is the official name. It does not uses an English name. User:Jaydenfromcanada 22 January 2020
    • APPROVED Austenasia (talk) 10:34, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Arms of the Aenderese Republic

Nominator: User:Jaydenfromcanada 6:28PM 2 January 2019 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Tsar Stefan I (talk) 3:20PM, 5 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE I will say that I love the design of the Arms very nice! However I would expect more information and citations if you're going to do a page like this. User:Gb55 8 Jan 2020 3:33pm
  • SUPPORT --Simmascoppe 05:11, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Chau Khang (talk) 11:04am, 22 January 2020 (ICT)
  • OPPOSE while it is a well-written and well-structured article, some of the formatting makes it look rather awkward and there just isn't enough content to fill all the sections properly. -ricky sup? 18:50, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE as above Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:16, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Grand Republic of Cycoldia

Nominator: User:Summi Imperatoris 17:20 07 January 2019 (CST)
  • OPPOSE: There is not enough citations on the page. The whole page needs fine tuning and expansion. The section regarding 'Entry into the Nation' is no needed and can be Incorporated into other areas of the page. Also the pages formatting needs a re-tweak, it doesn't flow very well. I do appreciate the infobox that is very well put together. But overall not worthy of GA status in its current form User: Gb555 8 Jan 20 3:26pm
  • SUPPORT: Nice article, good amount of references and information. Would add a photo in the history section if possible. -User:Jaydenfromcanada 2:30AM 10 January 2020 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Tsar Stefan I (talk) 4:15PM, 10 January 2020 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Good article, non-biased, straight to the point, and written clearly -User:Luke825015
  • SUPPORT meets the criteria. -ricky sup? 18:50, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Excessive details in some places and awkward formatting in others. Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:18, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
    • REJECTED A difficult one, as it's really not a bad article by any means. However, the two who voted in opposition raised some good points and articles with a 2:1 support:oppose ratio have almost always been rejected in the past. I noticed a few other things, too; taking the Diplomacy section as an example, the statement "Cycoldia has been recognised by the United States Department of Education" must be changed to something like "Cycoldia claims to have been recognised...", some of the nations have been given flags and some haven't, and the Entry into the Nation section is written like an advert rather than an article. Overall not bad, but needs some work imho. Austenasia (talk) 09:35, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Republic of Viadalvia

Nominator: --A chap from Phokland (talk) 14:55, 9 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE: Nice amount of photos and information, but there are no references, a photo is broken, and a few grammar mistakes. User:Jaydenfromcanada 2:24AM 10 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE: A bit too much red links Tsar Stefan I (talk) 4:13PM, 10 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE Red links, grammar mistakes, and none of the sentences even have periods. Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 15:31, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Enough red links to even drive me off, grammar issues, and around enough periods only to supply one chap for 5 milliseconds. HIM Christina I of Cycoldia (talk) 23:08, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE: It looks as if it was poorly translated from another language, too many red links and whomever wrote this must have some sort of full stop phobia. Aenopia (talk) 20:36, 13 January 2020 (UCT)
  • OPPOSE as above. -ricky sup? 18:50, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:18, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Empire of Aenopia

Nominator: Aenopia (talk) 22:05, 9 January 2020 (UCT)
  • SUPPORT: Nice amount of information and photos. Work on your references, otherwise it is a pretty good article! -User:Jaydenfromcanada 2:26AM 10 January 2020 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Tsar Stefan I (talk) 4:13PM, 10 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE There isn't exactly a bias as such, but sections of the article don't read neutral. I would also like to see an expansion of the History and Government sections. User:Gb555 12 Jan 20 10:20am
  • SUPPORT Good article. There are a few areas I'd change but that are fully allowed within the criteria. Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:20, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Small changes needed, overall very good. Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 20:49, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Tsar Stefan I (talk) 2:51PM, 15 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE Fix the weatherbox. Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:22, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
    • COMMENT Fixed, and I redid the geography section and added tons of links where needed. Nicolás Millán 8:48PM, 26 January 2020 (CST)
      • REJECTED: I'm sorry, not enough feedback. Overall not that bad but I do agree that a bit more information could be added--Guess I never Miss (talk) 04:21, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

J16

Nominator: Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 04:06, 20 January 2020 (UTC). Comment: Made a lot of changes since the last nomination.
  • SUPPORT a man has fallen into the river in lego city User:Jaydenfromcanada 11:08 AM 20 January 2020
  • OPPOSE Too short. Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 15:24, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
    • COMMENT It is slightly longer than the shortest good article (within twenty bytes). And is, in my opinion, expanded upon enough. Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 20:49, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Not bad. --Emperor Anthony I (talk) 02:44, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Good article Ari Telford (talk) 02:11, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Rather short, however informative nevertheless. Aenopia (talk) 22:45, 25 January 2020 (UCT)
  • OPPOSE I do not believe it is important enough for GA. Remember, the ga status is meant to demonstrate the best that the wiki has to offer and i feel as though this has been forgotten in recent times. --Guess I never Miss (talk) 04:34, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
    • REJECTED I'm sorry, I just thing that this particular article is too short and miscellaneous to be GA at this time.--Guess I never Miss (talk) 15:41, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

Repeal of GA status of Grand Unified Micronational

Nominator: User:Jaydenfromcanada) 8:03PM 24 January 2020 (EST). Am I legally bilnd or is there no references? Also, should have more photos imo
  • OPPOSE Articles do not require references. And in any case, references can easily be added; removing and re-adding GA status would just be an unneeded hassle. Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 01:38, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Ari Telford (talk) 02:22, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE: References are not required. Tsar Stefan I (talk) 9:58PM, 24 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE as above -ricky sup? 08:13, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Fails the "accurate" criterium via its lack of references. Mahuset (Emiel Sebastiaan Hardy, also known as Oxocero) (talk) 14:46, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Articles do not always need references. Other good articles do not have them, we can add them in the future but taking it away wouldn't help. NickRandouler) (talk) 05:42 PM, January 25, 2020 (EST)
  • RENOUCED fixed thanks to the epic Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I)
  • CLOSED Repeal denied due to popular vote, and references being added. cameron (talk) 20:09, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
  • COMMENT I call BS Cameron, you cannot just close a thread, you either APPROVE or REJECT. I get this is rejected but saying "COSED" just seems like a poor choice of words in my opinion. Also this is the GUM so obviously there will be discourse (this last part is drected at the proposer). --Guess I never Miss (talk) 21:28, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
  • JONATHAN gave me the ability. Take it up with him, not me. "BS" smh cameron (talk) 02:41, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Kingdom of Baustralia

Nominator: His (Imperial) Majesty, John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia, and the Dominions, Emperor of Tentacion 17:22, 26 January 2020 (UTC). I've improved the article since my second-last nomination. The last nomination I don't believe was seen by many.

Kingdom of Coria

Nominator: NikolaJovanovic (talk) 18:44, 26 January 2020 (UTC) Great article imho.

Nikola I of Coria

Nominator: NikolaJovanovic (talk) 18:44, 26 January 2020 (UTC) Great article imho.
  • OPPOSE There's no references, no worthy pictures or interactive items (graphs, tables, ect.) and there's nearly nothing there. Aenopia (talk 19:22, 26 January 2020 (UCT)
  • OPPOSE Tsar Stefan I (talk) 2:55PM, 26 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE Stuuuuuuuub Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 02:37, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Ned Gunderson

Nominator: NikolaJovanovic (talk) 18:44, 26 January 2020 (UTC) Great article imho.

  • OPPOSE Tsar Stefan I (talk) 2:55PM, 26 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE Stub Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 20:43, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE stubby sized Jaydenfromcanada (talk) 01:42, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I like it though my only recommendation would be to add an image.--Guess I never Miss (talk) 21:31, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Small, not much told about the person other than offices, religion and awards... His (Imperial) Majesty, John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia, and the Dominions, Emperor of Tentacion 21:46, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
  • REJECTED Stubby! cameron (talk) 02:40, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Rushymia (original kingdom)

Nominator: NikolaJovanovic (talk) 18:44, 26 January 2020 (UTC) Great article imho.
  • OPPOSE Literally only has one image, no references and has a biased tone. Also it literally consists primarily of a History section and an awards section (a half-arsed one at that). No way is this GA worthy. Aenopia (talk 19:25, 26 January 2020 (UCT)
  • OPPOSE Tsar Stefan I (talk) 2:54PM, 26 January 2020 (EST)
  • OPPOSE as above Jaydenfromcanada (talk) 05:42, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

New Llandudno

Nominator: Aenopia (talk) 20:09, 9 February 2020 (UCT)

  • SUPPORT FTFcz (talk) 07:26, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Looks great, a good amount of information for a city! NickRandouler (talk) 11:55, 12 February 2020 (EST)

Kingdom of Baustralia (No. 2)

Nominator: His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia King, Emperor of Ostreum (talk · email) 14:48, 10 February 2020 (UTC). I've improved the article since my third-last nomination. The last two nominations I don't believe are being seen, sadly.
  • OPPOSE Decently written, images are perfect, and the references are nice. And although it is not bad by any means, I feel like it does not really qualify for GA status; nine red links, and some areas could be written better, for example "... there are currently thirteen administrative divisions of Baustralia, or provinces, and number 82 in population ..." unless the number changes very often it should ideally not have 'currently', and I feel like "and number 82 in population" should just be "and a total population of 82". Just my thoughts however. --Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  05:29, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
@Z. Luna Skye: I've followed through with your suggestions. Would you wish to re-review? His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia King, Emperor of Ostreum (talk · email) 15:08, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I really enjoy this article anytime i see it. The page has to be one of the best if not the only good written article on this wiki. At the moment the article has a few grammatical mistakes around the article. In conculsion if fixes are made i see no reason for this to not to get GA status in the future -Cookieman1.1.1 (talk) 14:33, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
    • Changed to SUPPORT Changes were made and fixed. -Cookieman1.1.1 (talk) 03:47, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@Cookieman1.1.1: I ran the article through Grammarly to remove these mistakes! His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia King, Emperor of Ostreum (talk · email) 15:08, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT As stated above, corrections were made. I see no reason why not to add this page. -Guess I never Miss (talk) 14:56, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Certainly improved. Tsar Stefan I (talk) 2:13PM, 12 February 2020 (EST)
    • APPROVED Adding tags now! cameron (talk) 02:27, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

TOES

Nominator: Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  2:55 am (01:55), 13 February 2020. References, well-written, I think it qualifies.
  • SUPPORT What Zarel stated above. --ThatMLGDorito (talk) 03:37, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE It is well written and all but I'm not sure if it should be taken seriously or not. It does use a good amount of refrences however some seem like 'filler refrences' that do not actually provide support to the validity of the article. The seriousness of this too makes it hard too. Especially with the banned members part and the validity of that, and all of the blue links. Yes blue links are good but I feel like in some parts its an over load. Someone could probably persuade me and change my mind but what I have to say. NickRandouler (talk) 11:53, 12 February 2020 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Lots of references, pictures to complement article and overall a goog article. Aenopia (talk) 15:56, 13 February 2020 (UCT)
  • OPPOSE No. Austenasia (talk) 21:38, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Saspearian Declaration of Independence

Nominator: Emperor Anthony I (talk) 02:09, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Quite well made. Tsar Stefan I (talk) 9:20PM, 18 February 2020 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Well written, good amount of references, and overall a very good article. Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  3:19 PM (15:19), 19 February 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Too many grammatical mistakes, unfortunately. Otherwise not bad! Austenasia (talk) 21:38, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Indonesian sector

Nominator: Nabil nordamdie (talk) 16:03, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE There are a few grammar mistakes and very few references for an article its size. Aenopia (talk) 18:08, 22 February 2020 (UCT)
  • OPPOSE As above Austenasia (talk) 21:38, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

July nominations

Union of Millania and New Granada

Nomintator: Nicolás Millán 10:54PM, 6 February 2020 (CST)
  • SUPPORT (Please if you support consider giving feedback) Very well-written and expanded upon, a generous amount of references, and a nice amount of images. There is some minor sentences which could be phrased better and in my opinion all I would add is another image or two but it is not needed. Z. Luna Skye (Prince Zarel I) (talk) 23:07, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Austin Jaax (talk) 11:48, 6 February 2020 (EST)

  • SUPPORT FTFcz (talk) 12:38, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Aenopia (talk) 19:36, 9 Febuary 2020 (UCT)
  • SUPPORT Has a perfect amount of information, and at some parts which are kinda short, it has separate articles for, so that can be excused Anthony Dickson (talk 05:52, 10 February (EET)
  • OPPOSE A generally good article with many pictures and detailed sections. The issue is, with a page as expansive and detailed as this, it only has 14 references, half of those (7) are statements relating to documents, bodies, and areas which the reader does not have access to. William I (talk) 09:18, 11 February 2020 (CST)
  • SUPPORT The page looks fine the way it is, plenty of description, not too much, it's a great one. Sluke91 (talk) 03:04, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Commonwealth of Naveria

Nominator: GDC Navārdia (talk) 16:03, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

I’ve been considering nominating my article for several months, but I decided to take time to improve it (particularly after all that happened as a result of the dissolution of Phokland). I’ve done all I can to improve it, at least for the time being, so I’m ready to nominate! GDC Navārdia (talk) 16:03, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Commonwealth of Dracul

Nominator: --Guess I never Miss (talk) 06:16, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Sluke91 (talk) 06:53, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Lack of sources and doesn't consistently use 'academic-style' prose which should be used in a wiki page. Certian sections, for example the President and Vice President sections, should have their own pages, as the information stated is enough to secure that those particularly new pages aren't stubs. --Billiam Bilson 17:07, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
    • COMMENT Sources are not a requirement for GA on MicroWiki, additionally many other GA's have more detailed sections then this one... seems a bit brash to oppose a page because it's TOO descriptive. Guess I never Miss (talk) 09:21, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT The history section is somewhat outdated but that’s any easy fix. Overall, a pretty good and detailed article in my opinion! —GDC Navārdia (talk) 19:04, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE It needs easy fixing however it might take some time so I have to oppose it for now: it is far too descriptive, like 'Awards and Certificates', 'Foreign Relations' and sections of 'Government' like 'President' could be added into their own articles. Having the lyrics of your National Anthem also reads weirdly. Furthermore, 'Geography' and 'Economy' are pretty short, merging 'Economy' with 'Business' could work. And also, remember to add links to various pages on MicroWiki and Wikipedia.

Flag of Aenopia

Nominator: --Aenopia (talk) 14:08, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

For while I feel like it isn't 100% complete, please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions on what needs improving.

  • SUPPORTGuess I never Miss (talk) 09:26, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE It is good so far however I feel like it needs a slight touch of grammar - and like you said, it is not complete, however if it is made longer (because I feel like you can squeeze in a lot more info) it could well meet the criteria. Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  3:28 pm, 14 July 2020 (UTC+1)
    • COMMENT I have improved the page a bit with some more stuff to bulk it up a bit longer and bigger. Aenopia (talk) 21:53, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Seems a little cluttered with graphics and tables and stuff, and I think it could be just a tad bit longer. aydan (talk) 03:22, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I think micronations, not flags, should be nominated. It is also very cluttered. Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite

  • OPPOSE Like Aenopia cited, there is indeed a lack of content, such as 'Administrative divisions' and 'Cooperatives' being completely empty. And for what is there, there is a number of redlinks, and although some sections read perfectly (see culture for example), the grammar could overall be improved in some parts.

    • COMMENT Hey @MissEDconexion: 1) time is not a criteria; 2) I mean it's in the name "good article", the articles are not necessarily judged on quantity but rather its quality, how good it is. If it's a good article, I don't see why it shouldn't receive GA status. New Eiffel Main Route 1 is a prime example of this. aydan (talk) 15:54, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE It is true that short articles can be accepted as long as they fully meet the criteria, however I have to agree with MissEDconexion that it should have a little more time to be expanded upon, as some sections are rather short, like 'Media and Culture'. I would say adding 'Climate' and 'Territory' into a 'Geography' section and perhaps including things like 'Natural history' could help. Also improving 'National symbols' to perhaps include the flag and other symbols if possible.

I feel like this is nicely written and expanded upon well enough, if it needs to be copyedited into British English that can be an easy fix.

  • OPPOSE: Very few references for an article of its size and numerous parts (mainly the Membership section) do not represent the Organisation at the time of dissolution. Aenopia (talk) 22:11, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE The various article sections seem pretty short and a lot of it consists of lists. It is informative and has a lot of references, though it has some grammar mistakes like improper capitalisations, and there are some areas which could be worded better; i.e. "(GUM for short)" could be simply "(GUM)".

  • SUPPORT Doesn't have many references and there are a few redlinks but otherwise it's a pretty detailed page. Aenopia (talk) 10:26, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE The layout is great; nice formatting, and plenty of detail. The reason I've opposed is that there are just too many little errors in grammar. "It's" instead of "its", "have" instead of "has", and "withdrawal" instead of "withdrawing" - and that's just in the introduction! I appreciate that English isn't the first language of the author, but it should be thoroughly checked for little grammatical mistakes like this before being nominated. Once these are cleared up, I really see no obstacle. Austenasia (talk) 09:06, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Meets the criteria for Good Article Status. Emperor Anthony I (talk) 01:08, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE For now; the article is really good, however there are a few instances of sentences which can be worded better and a few unneeded capitalisations, such as "De Facto" and "Hate speech", which should both be uncapitalised. I also feel like the 'Political views' section seems to list a bunch of said views in an unorganised manner, however it is pretty short and could perhaps be expanded a bit if possible. Either way, very good so far, and with a few changes to the grammar and spelling it can be GA status.

Overturn GA status of Empire of Aenopia

This is not a bad article. There's plenty of information, pictures, good use of wikitables, etc. However, before featuring this article I decided to skim through it to quickly check for any glaring problems, and I soon realised the number of mistakes in the text. Admittedly, these mistakes are relatively minor - incorrect capitalization, a few instances of informal language, minor grammatical errors - but cumulatively they do make me think that its status as a Good Article should be reconsidered. I have made some slight changes to the introduction, but the thought of doing this for the whole article is quite daunting, and the GA process is to find Good Articles, not make them. I'm always reluctant and sorry to propose the overturning of GA status for an article, but given we've rejected ones in the past which (to be blunt) were better written, I feel it's only in keeping with the standards we've set. Austenasia (talk) 14:57, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Austenasia (talk) 14:57, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I'm going to try to be as unbiased as possible with this for obvious reasons. I do agree with the point you've made regarding the fact that the GA process is to find Good Articles, not make them, however I do believe that the article can be improved sufficiently to bring it up to these standards. I would be more than happy to spend the next few days sifting through the article to remove any mistakes and whilst I'm at it, improve it further. Aenopia (talk) 18:19, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT I agree with Jonathan. Good Article nominations are for already Good Articles, not ones that need improvement.. King Thomas I (talk) 17:59, 6 September 2020 (CDT)
  • OPPOSE While there is indeed room for serious correction to the article, seeing how minor the errors are and seeing how they don't take too much away from the article, I feel that removing GA status is unwarranted so long as the errors are corrected soon.--Guess I never Miss (talk) 17:35, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT It's my article, and it has some good information.
  • OPPOSE: Well, if you are looking for feedback; the article has instances of improper capitalisation, uses the wrong date format (i.e. '28th of February 2019' should be '28 February 2019', like every date format), and the headings should not be capitalised. The article seems pretty long and mentions very specific things, such as the 'Identification', 'elections' or 'Symbols' section, which could be split into its own articles. It could also use some minor grammar copyediting. Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  3:14 p.m., 14 September 2020 (UTC+1)

  • SUPPORT It is one of the better articles in the microwiki community and is a very serious micronations. Isaiah Burdette
  • OPPOSE Only 2 references, incorrect date format and lots of sections have little to no information to name a few. Also the statement by the previous user about being a serious nation has nothing to do with the page. Aenopia (talk) 14:45, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Nothing against the nation itself, but there are only a handful of references, several unfilled sections, and weird formatting in a few areas. The article is definitely a work in progress and right now I don't think it's good article material. User:Player Piano (talk) 16:05, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE As the writer and leader of Matachewan, the page is literally no where close to even be considered a GA, there aren't enough citations, formatting is incorrect in some places as well as the dating. So even though it is my creation and I'd support it being a good article I'm going to strongly oppose till it is actually ready to be a GA. Brandon Mierzwa (talk) 15:50, 15 September 2020 (EST)

Ebenthal

Nominator: Arthur Brum (talk) 03:37, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

The article is well-structure following Wikipedia's patterns on country articles, well-illustrated, it presents all of the micronation's relevant information with cohesion, it provide links to related articles, although not in a repetitive way, it provide sources. English errors were overwhelmingly or totally corrected. Arthur Brum (talk) 03:37, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Karnia-Ruthenia (talk page) 09:36, 2 October 2020 (UTC) This article is well written and reports an impressive micronation with the potential to be one of the greatest of this decade among the micronations created in Latin America. Recognizing it as a Good Article transcends the obvious fact that the article is far superior to some other articles with the same label, but it is also a matter of fairness for a very interesting micronational project.
  • OPPOSE: It is without a doubt that the article is very well written. I however take issue with the fact that large swathes of the article are unreferenced, and as such the information present is unverifiable.
    If before the voting process is completed the article gets its references, this will be my number one candidate. Sertor (Chat) 13:54, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Sildavia 11:27 2 October 2020 (UTC) This is a very well written and detailed article, showing great micronational potential within the Brazilian and Latin American Sector.
  • SUPPORT Cobra Kai 16:30 2 October 2020 (UTC) The article is truly excellent, as it fully exposes the relevant information on micronation. Even if we not consider it to be a foreign-speaking micronation, its writing is very good. It complies with the integrality, to the point that its reading can be perfectly learned what is necessary from Ebenthal. He uses appropriate sources in this context, and none are even doubtful. Although it is understood that in this wiki the same heads of state collaborate many times, the article does not show a sezgo, and describes Ebenthal without exaggerating the qualities or importance of micronation. The images are excellent, and they illustrate correctly, without going too far. The landscapes were well chosen, and give the reader an idea of ​​the representativeness of territories, culture and personalities of the micronation. The order of the sections also seems very good to me, and beyond any doubt. I agree with user User:Sertor Valentinus that it would indeed be an even better article with more sources, hopefully external and in the press. However, if so, this article should also be on Wikipedia. But for a micronation wiki I think it deserves this nomination. An extra point of relevance is that this is a particularly good article on a micronation that is not English-speaking, which obviously contributes in diversity.

Finally, forgive my mistakes in grammar. This is not my mother tongue.

  • OPPOSE Though the article appears to be well expanded upon, the article has very few references, certain parts of the article are very obscure. Emperor Anthony I (talk) 03:21, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Church of the Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion

Nominator:Citizen-Premier Sophia Albina (talk, 03:59, 2 October (EST)

This article is a well-written and detailed article on the Church of the Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion, a highly developed Church present within the Republic of Nordale and the Commonwealth of New Virginia. The antecedents to the creation of the Church culturally can be seen in the now Shoreline which was once Terentia within the Empire of Austenasia. This article documents a major accomplishment of micronational culture that I think is nearly unmatched within the community. Stella Blue I has put much effort and thought into the development of this religion which one can easily see within the article. For all of these reasons, I believe this article deserves to be a good article. Thank you for your consideration, my friends.

    • Comment: The article is given the "silly things" tag, describing the page as "MicroWiki is a serious encyclopaedia for micronations, however from time to time, non namespace pages, such as MicroWiki:Unusual articles have popped up, which are meant to be comedic. It's good to laugh every now and then, and most humor articles don't cause much damage to MicroWiki as a website." Given the article itself asking readers not to take it seriously, I feel this alone would disqualify it from GA status. Sertor (Chat) 17:37, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

  2. Comprehensive, the wikipage details the affair leaving no details but being reasonable in its size.
  3. Accurate, you've got various references detailing what GTA V is, letters sent to leaders, messages, etc.
  4. Neutral, a majority of POVs are factored in this article
  5. Illustrated, has images of Leon's account playing GTA, Leon planning to re-install the game, that letter I sent to Trudeau and the M rating for which the ESRB rated the game. This supports the article and at the same time doesn't overwhelm the article.
  6. Well-structured, goes from background, to the main event, to aftermath and reactions. Enough headings for the article for an incident like this

    • REJECTED To be fair, this is very well written, but as others have pointed out, the subject matter alone effectively disqualifies it. Austenasia (talk) 17:44, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

I thank you for reading the following texts and your volunteer work throughout MicroWiki. I have received the notice of rejection for the article titled "Grand Theft Auto V affair". As you know, despite you stating that the article is well written, the article was rejected due to its subject. I humbly wish to object and overturn this decision.

The clause "This project is designed to help improve article quality on MicroWiki and reward good article editing and creation." listed on the page "MicroWiki:Good articles" implies that the system is in place to recognize quality articles. In my opinion, the topic matter on such a subject should not affect the quality of the article. In my opinion, quality articles generally mean a few things, including good grammar, effective use of photos, and others that create an engaging article that effectively presents the topic.

The sentence "If an article is rejected, the articles does not satisfy the initial criteria and an explanation of why will usually be provided by the reviewing users." listed at the opening paragraphs in the page "MicroWiki:Good articles/Nominations" implies that pages which do not mean the criteria listed further down will get rejected. Nowhere in that criteria list that a subject matter affects one's ability to attain the Good Article score. I refer to my previous statement of this article fulfilling all the criteria, including its usage of photos, references, points of view in a neutral sense, structure, etc.

The clause "A nomination with several blank "support" votes and only a few "oppose" votes may still be rejected if those "oppose" votes make very good arguments against it" listed under the good article page is not justified here either. Various reviewers praised the article based on being highly detailed, usage of images, and references. Mr. User: Sertor_Valentinus’ argument on the usage of the humour template in my opinion does not affect the criteria listed and should be ignored. Mr. User: Isaiah Burdette did not add any other points besides “No just no”. Both users failed to reply with any additional criticism.

The topic of one’s article is not listed upon criteria at the time of nomination nor should, in my opinion, affect the quality of one’s article. Noticing all the arguments above, I urge you to appeal the rejection.

I've just done a week's worth of substantial editing to the page. I annotated what I could the best I can, and will likely be annotating the article further as I read through it for spelling and grammar I may have missed. As it is rather long.

  • OPPOSE Not structured well (i.e. using heading 1 instead of heading 2), goes too in-depth on various things including Ministries and Relationships which could be separated. Can easily be improved and will be a good tender for GA! Jaydenfromcanada (talk) | Sent from Mail for Windows 10 | 02:43, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
    • COMMENT Sections heading depth was easy enough to fix, that is already done. As for ministries, culture, and army content, do you think that it would benefit by being moved to their own separate pages? Maybe including a navigation box? SoaringMoon (talk) 02:59, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
      • COMMENT Yes, this is about a general overview of the nation, not about what is the remistace ministry. I'll also recommend shortening the starting sentence (e.g. removing what Technocracy is). Furthermore, I'll also recommend you to add references to areas like Economy, Government, etc, where there are few. Jaydenfromcanada (talk) | Sent from Mail for Windows 10 | 04:52, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
        • COMMENT I trimmed some serious fat on the article. Can you look at it now, and give me some feedback on what else I should change? I have excepted the fact that I will have to submit this as a GA at some later time. SoaringMoon (talk) 11:48, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The article goes into far too much detail about some things that would be better suited to a website or in some cases a different page. For example I wouldn't say that the advantages and disadvantages of the currency section is necessary on the main page, neither is relationships. Also the head of state section doesn't appear to be completed, with almost all of the table full of N/A. I'd say in that case you would be better off mentioning the positions rather than filling a table with N/A. The mission statement section is also rather biased and unnecessary imo. For while I feel like this page isn't ready for GA status yet with lots of improvement and maybe even sifting through to choose what needs its own page/is very useful for a wiki page it could reach GA status.

  • NEUTRAL The article is detailed, but I feel that some sections can be looked into. Like History can be shifted above Basic laws (which might come into the Government/Parliament section), moreover, Climate seems to be a sub-section of Holidays, you can look into it.

  • OPPOSE The article is fairly well-written, and I am fond of the lead section, however it is kind of short and there is a new paragraph every three lines which looks odd. The 'Personal life' section also seems to take up a large amount of the article compared to 'Reign', which I would argue is more important. I would also recommend giving 'Military career' its own section out of personal life. Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  11:00 p.m., 17 November 2020 (UTC)
    • Thanks @Zed, I've tried to make a few fixes. I didn't touch the lead, I'm not sure what else to add, however, I do agree it looks a bit odd. I separated 'Military career' into its own section, and expanded on 'Reign'. --His Majesty John I by the Grace of God of Baustralia King, Emperor of Ostreum (talk · email) 03:01, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Well-written, informative and gives all information that one would expect to be available. The prose is clear and precise.

  • OPPOSE. The lead section is poorly-structured—the pronunciation guide is poorly-integrated, a fifty-word full name is present in bold, there is a non-standard cross-reference, there are unnecessary upper-case letters on "See" and "Constitutional Monarchy", and the logic for what merits inclusion is confusing and renders the lead section a poor summary of the article at large. There is a good amount of content but the structure, grammar and prose are consistently mediocre. Three particularly grating flaws running through the article are the constant wiki-linking of Christinia I after the first instance, the deluge of unnecessary upper-case letters and the unnecessary wiki-linking of years. The references are inconsistently formatted—the date is actually shown in no fewer than three different ways (see references 9, 10 and 14). In addition, your little swipe at Zed in the nomination, complete with passive-aggressive ellipses, is completely unmerited. He said when rejecting this article that it was "quite good" but that it needed copyediting; you ignored this recommendation and relisted it with a comment implying that the fact he said it was "quite good" should have qualified it for GA status. I suggest that this time you act on Zed's suggestion and copyedit the article before nominating it a third time. —Ives Blackwood (talk) 20:46, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT I'll just keep it simple: beautiful. aydan (talk) 18:03, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Eh. It's extensive and illustrated, but the structure is questionable, the images are too big, the prose is poor and feels unedited, and in places, it reads like an advert. The main problem, though, is that it's laced with grammar and style errors — too many to list, but three particularly jarring problems include the headings in title case, the wikilinks, and the inline citations to unformatted Google Docs links. It would need an extensive copy-edit before it would be suitable for GA status. —Ives Blackwood (talk) 13:44, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Better! Though not there yet - the article is really not bad, but it does not stand out either. As Blackwood points out, the grammar and spelling overall needs improvement, and many sentences could just be worded better (i.e. The article uses "later" way too much where just using "erstwhile" instead of later or replacing it with "renamed" would be better). It also needs a touch on its neutrality. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 04:10, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Personally, I think it fills all the criteria, and out of my articles is the one I worked on hardest and that I like the most. Thus, I believe it is ready for GA status. Cristi (talk) 18:18, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT This page is well referenced, has no redlinks, is highly detailed and uses media in an acceptable amount. I am in support of this for GA status. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 00:18, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This article is well very written, edited and referenced. Moreover, it is to be noted that it's the article of a political party, and such beautifully written. It should definitely receive GA status. Oritsu.me (talk) 9:20, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Jesus, that's a bloody good encyclopedia entry. Full support. —Ives Blackwood (talk) 13:37, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This is a great article it's well written and has all the information anyone could ever need, I think is very worthy, and should receive GA status. Isaiah (Chat) 21:42, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Just thought it looked nice. My friend made it and I believed it filled out all the guidelines and it seemed he's been working on it for months updating it and refining it trying to make it look good. I think his work has paid off to the point where his article may be worthy of "Good Article" Status. User:Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 18:25, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Thank you for submitting my article. I read the criteria and also believe my article is worthy. Charles (talk) 18:50, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I'm going to be honest the page is all over the place the date formats are wrong, relatively few references and grammar mistakes. Isaiah (Chat)
  • OPPOSE As above. A large amounts of the article consists of stubby sections, zero references and the article is quite a mess to name a few problems.

  • OPPOSE Let's keep this short. The sections have little to no bulking out, they are very basic and do not convey a lot of information, the article is not referenced enough, and there is contested information e.g. (It is a common belief that they are discriminated against by admins and moderators of the MicroWiki@Discord Server.). It's a no from me. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 00:22, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

The hope is that this meets the criteria above. —Ives Blackwood (talk) 23:33, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

  • NEUTRAL This page is well detailed and meets all criteria, however it could benefit from having more references. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 00:23, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I'm going to lean oppose if more references are added I'd change to support. Isaiah (Chat)
COMMENT I concede that I did mostly write this page with one source, Glastieve: A History, but said source is literally book-length (ca. 50,000 words iirc). I have also cited three other sources, one of which (the Skovaji wiki entry) is over 10,000 words worth of content. I would be grateful if you would expand on what the problem is with the references, as tbh, I feel like I'm having this conversation once a week at the moment and I feel like there's a disconnect between the GA criteria and each of your comments. Nothing in the article is not verifiable. —Ives Blackwood (talk) 13:54, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
AMENDMENT Following reading this, I hereby amend my previous verdict from 'Neutral' to 'Support'. Good luck in your bid for GA! Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 13:03, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I have no clue why the above editors think an amazing article, expansive, fascinating, well-written article, completed with images and references at the bottom of the page think it should be rejected until more unreliable self-sourced links to Google Sites or Wordpress get added. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 10:16 a.m. (1016), 2 December 2020 (UTC)
    • REJECTED I really love this article and truly believe it should be a GA, but unfortunately two supports is not consensus - I would advice renominating it next month. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 04:14, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT For what it is, and for the amount of information available, this is an excellent article, and deserves GA status. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 02:35, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Looked over the article, looks fine to me.-MissED the Target (talk) 03:04, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I don't believe there's anything wrong with the article, however I feel as if sections could be a bit longer and maybe feature other sections such as expanding the history section into different parts e.g Pre-History, Annexation, Bonumland era, ect. with the same for Culture. I also feel as if it could do with a few more references however it's otherwise a good article.

COMMENT I forgot to nominate this before my hiatus Now, aside from it simply being a huge detailed and cited summary of events, that is not the sole reason I think it can be a GA, I do believe it is itself well-written and proficiently worded, neutral, has a good prose and enough sections to not be unnavigable or too long, and it is expansive enough with notable, sourced entries and excellent images. Of course, you know the drill so I do not really have to say it, but, feedback welcome! :3

  • SUPPORT Indeed it is an amazingly done article, not to mention it must have been very difficult to put this all together in a way that it is undertandable. It really deserves a good article status. Arthur Brum (talk) 23:23, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE The article seems incredibly cramped, there's a lack of reference and some sections are rather short. Not exactly necessary however I feel like adding a see also section would make the article better.
