Aleunnic Czardom

Nominator: Tsar Stefan I (talk). 2:40PM, 1 January 2021 (EST)

I know it isn't much, but since the Aleunnic Czardom is relatively new with relevant info and references, it could work. Any comments on how to improve it is appreciated.

  • WITHDRAWN From the comments received, I've decided to withdraw this article and probably renominate if more info gets added. Tsar Stefan I (talk). 3:03PM, 2 January 2021 (EST)

Overturn GA status of State of Berin

Nominator: Tsar Stefan I (talk). 2:40PM, 1 January 2021 (EST)

Not a lot of info, no pictures other than flags, and the lack of references.

  • SUPPORT For good articles you do not only look for articles that meet the expected criteria for an article of its category—i.e. the necessary images, expansive and well-written information, citations—a good article should encompass above average material which defies expectations; while information/length is not an issue for this article, as neither is references, and it is of historical importance, there is nothing exceptionally amazing about the article. In fact, it would be improved with at least one physical image, and the text could nevertheless be expanded a bit and do with some refreshing for grammar and spelling, such as the unnecessary bold text for its flags. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 23:49, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT As above. ricky sup? 02:30, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I believe that I was initially going to oppose this, but I decided to support this call because even though I think it could be updated, Good Articles are meant to stay as.. good articles. Unfortunately, this one isn't right now. (User:ReesesPuffs, Puffs I)
  • COMMENT I the believe that this article must have been worthy of being a good article by the time it was created, and its historic relevance, when it comes to good articles, should be preserved. But I understand that for today's standarts the article isn't by far a "good article", it is too short and simple, although well done. I'm just not fond of the ideia of witch-hunting older good articles which, for today's standarts, aren't that good, otherwise we might start something that could end in chopping the list of good articles by the middle, hypoteticaly speaking.

Ebenthal

Nominator: Arthur Brum (talk) 19:59, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

I believe the article fulfills all the required criteira. It is well-written (specialy if one takes into account that the micronation isn't natively English-speaker), it speaks coherently and reasonably in all of the micronation's facts and matters without going into unnecessarily detailed mega-texts, it provides a fair amount of sources, quality images providing detailed descriptions with no false/simulationist claims, it does not magnifies the micronation, it is honest on its position, and its structure follows the Wikipedia countries' articles' pattern. Arthur Brum (talk) 19:59, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Ebenthal's article is one of the most elaborate on entire MicroWiki, especially considering that it's from a relatively recent micronation. Without wishing to dwell on Ebenthal's regional importance as a micronation of preponderance, the work done to create a first-rate article has been achieved a long time ago, surpassing several articles accepted as good and which, due to elegance, should not be mentioned. However, once the quality threshold has been established, it's undisputed that this article far exceeds expectations and that failure to recognize its quality is more a political or xenophobic statement than a sincere opposition for some failure in it. This article has already been submitted for consideration and has been rejected; fair or not, the author dedicated himself to perfecting the article and now, there is little to criticize negatively, being more than apt to receive qualification, but being truly worthy of being placed in a differentiated rank, being an example for articles to be written in the future. Karno-Ruthenian Imperial Government (talk) 18:17, 01 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This is a great article, being a template for detailing a micronation, and with a high level of information, details and references, the Ebenthal article reflects the great nation that is. Sildavia Government (talk) 17:26, 01 January 2021 (UTC−3)
  • SUPPORT Tsar Stefan I (talk) 3:31PM, 1 January 2021 (EST)
  • SUPPORT This is by far the most well written article at this website, it is rich in information and content and I think it deserves the title of 'Good article'. Villa Alicia Government (talk) 22:03, 01 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This is one of the best written articles on Microwiki, that still does not have a GA tag. I would like this article to be a Good Article on Microwiki. Oritsu.me (Oritsu.me) 7:08, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I have absolutely no idea what Karno-Ruthenian Imperial Government is talking about but I am sure somewhere in there are good reasons to support. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 23:36, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT As above. ricky sup? 02:30, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Ela'r'oech

Nominator: Ela'r'oech Charles (Ela'r'oech Charles). 12:00Am, 3 January 2021 (CDT)
I think it's grown a lot since the last time it was submitted. Some "biased" things were removed. Yadda Yadda, let's see how it works this time. If y'all gonna oppose, please lemme know why and give feedback.

  • SUPPORT I like the article, it's informative and explanatory. Kaiser-Koenig Christoph I
  • SUPPORT Should note that in foreign relations it should state the name of the nation. Overall, it's good. Tsar Stefan I (talk) 12:00PM, 1 January 2021 (EST)
  • SUPPORT Yes! I think this article is honestly amazing and provides a lot of information useful to any micronationalist. It's fairly a "new" micronation but it's got a good-looking article and I believe it's worthy of GA status. Not to go off topic, but I was really disappointed to see it get revoked the first time, especially when someone used "MW@D Discrimination" and claimed it to be biased, when it is just in the Elarian culture that unfortunately it is believed they are discriminated against. And that person who said it was biased... was a moderator! Really? Proving the point of that sentence right there. But now that I'm done with my little rant, I really do think that this article is worthy of the GA status especially with more informational changes with the map and such on the infobox. User:Anthony Ramirez 3rd 3:12PM, 3 January 2021 (CDT)
  • OPPOSE Sections are rather stubby and some parts are worded rather badly. The Civil War section embodies these problems whilst also making absolutely no sense to the reader without context. Some dates utilise an incorrect date format and the article seems rather biased (and again make no sense) in sections . There are also a few spelling and grammar mistakes sprinkled throughout the article whilst some parts are written in both past and present tense AND first and third person. Some sections go into far too much detail and are quite messy such as the foreign affairs section - instead of having a defined section for recognition, organisations, foreign relations, ect. these groups are needlessly clumped together.Empire of Aenopia flag.png Logan (Aenopia)  Terry Tibbs talk to me  Look at what I've done. Empire of Aenopia flag.png 22:27, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
  • WEAK OPPOSE Article is stubby in certain sections like Ela'r'oech after Charles and MW manual of style is not followed so it is a no from me. it doesn't even have a government section like a MW about a nation should. Isaiah (Chat)
  • COMMENT May I be informed as to which sections you believe are stubby? As said If you oppose giving Ela'r'oech the GA status please inform me of what I can do to amend this especially regarding bias. I am currently editing the article still as I was during the last time the article was submitted to hopefully amend anything I notice myself and add details.(Ela'r'oech Charles)
  • COMMENT Thanks for the info. Will update to amend. Please check it afterwards and perhaps consider changing your position.(Ela'r'oech Charles)
  • OPPOSE Much improved since last nomination, good prose, well-written in most parts and perfect images, though some sections are rather confusing, such as "It was founded accidentally by Charles Madgett in 2018, then in 2019 he made another nation which went defunct for a while until 2020, when on 15 August, it was purposefully established", which should explain more on how it was accidentally and later purposefully founded. Some subsections of its history are short, and I would remove the ones under "Pre-Ela'r'oech" - I would also move Locations and Climate into its own section titled "Geography". I agree with Logan (Aenopia) on the foreign affairs section. Furthermore, all date formats should be dd/mm/yyyy, so not September 16, 2020 or 16th of September 2020, but rather "16 September 2020". Also contains mild spelling mistakes or sentences that can be better worded. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 02:11, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
  • COMMENT I am confused though as to why there are any people necessarily opposing the GA Status of this article for the reason of Charles is listening to them and this article is continuously updated. I feel like a good amount of reasoning for these "oppose" views have been amended. (1/2) (User:Anthony Ramirez 3rd)
  • COMMENT (2/2) Charles has been waiting and patiently amending this all listening to the opposition, which is one thing I really respect and I have seen votes change before so I stand with him with reminding you and advising you to change your vote. Do not look at Ela'r'oech's article once. Look at it every day or a few times a day. There's many changes to it constantly. I see it as ; you're never voting for the exact same article in this nomination. Please listen to Charles when he advises you to change your vote. Please look at this article constantly, study it's changes. (User:Anthony Ramirez 3rd)
  • SUPPORT I always liked Charles, however it won't give me any bias when saying this article genuinely blew me away first reading it. Looking at the "OPPOSE" section it would say that there are incorrect date formats (there are none), stubby sections (there are none, maybe one or two I didn't catch), and bad grammar (which I'm admittedly not too good at so I wouldn't know), but at face value without nitpicking I really liked the article. But I'll also admit GA status is for those nitpicked articles that are still good. Could use some more work but I'm gonna support this one, since I really agree with Anthony, but I also agree somewhat with Logan (Aenopia) on the Civil War section. I'm sure it was worse before anything was said about it, but maybe that section could be removed or just expanded upon. I also don't think it fits in History/Ela'r'oech Era. Maybe Domestic Forces/Civil War would have been a better area for it. (Puffs I)

Kingdom of Burdette

Nominator: Isaiah (Chat)
I would like as much feedback as you can give I also wanna see how good the article is.

  • SUPPORT I wrote it and think it's good quality. Isaiah (Chat)
  • OPPOSE Zero images, lack of references, sections need expanding such as Economy, could probably do with a few more blue links and overall the article could do with expansion. Empire of Aenopia flag.png Logan (Aenopia)  Terry Tibbs talk to me  Look at what I've done. Empire of Aenopia flag.png 10:41, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Definitely could use more images, but I helped expand the economy area and it doesn't look too bad. Could use more work but it does look like a good article. Charles
  • COMMENT I added quite a few images. Isaiah (Chat)
  • COMMENT The opening is good, Etymology could be worded better, Geography is a bit short, and Climate can be expanded (i.e. "In general, the climate of Burdette is cool and often cloudy, and mid-year temperatures are generally warm, sometimes hot."), Government and Law and order have minor sentences which could be worded better and can have more blue links. Also if possible images of the land would help improve the overall feel of the article. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 03:43, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

Kingdom of Trebor

Nominator: Ives Blackwood (talk) 19:23, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

RESPONSE It's slim pickings for images about the golden toilet joke nation that lasted for about a month, but I've added an image of Trebor mints — with which the country shares a name and a colour scheme — and of Glastieven E. I did think about adding the Myré flag to the 'Position in Glastieven history' section but I don't want to encourage the confusion! —Ives Blackwood (talk) 09:08, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

It got passed the first stage last time I want to see how it does this time.

Flag of Australis

Nominator: Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 01:35, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

I believe this page is worthy of Good Article status. I have expanded it to be as expansive as a flag page can be, included references, images, and a great amount of detail. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 01:35, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Gymnasium State

Nominator: AtomCZ (talk) 07:41, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Rather than actually aiming to get Good Article status right away, I'm interested in ways to improve it, but if it was approved I wouldn't complain.

  • OPPOSE Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely page and definitely has potential as a Good Article. However I feel as if a majority of sections are too short and could do with some expansion. The culture section could also do with a few images but otherwise it's a great article. Empire of Aenopia flag.png Logan (Aenopia)  Terry Tibbs talk to me  Look at what I've done. Empire of Aenopia flag.png 09:29, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I love this article! It's got loads of references, which is good, includes lots of images which is also good, but the main place where this article is brought down are the stubby sections. For a nation established in 2016, the history section could be exponentially expanded. Also, go into more detail on how the Government works. Other than that, it's pretty good. Look forward to seeing the edits! Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 11:51, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Amazing article and only requires a few fixes as mentioned above. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 13:36, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The article has potential but as per Logan Ross some sections are stubby. Isaiah (Chat) 13:44, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I think the article is on the right track towards reaching GA status, however, the history section could use some work in the sense of an expansion. Also, a few illustrations would help reach the article towards Good Article Status. Other than that, it's very good. Emperor Anthony I (talk) 20:25, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Sough2020

Nominator: Empire of Aenopia flag.png Logan (Aenopia)  Terry Tibbs talk to me  Look at what I've done. Empire of Aenopia flag.png 09:27, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

I believe that the quality of this article is close enough to warrant GA status, excluding improvements that I'm going to continue making. Always open to improvement.

  • SUPPORT Because everyone else seems to be supporting their articles. Empire of Aenopia flag.png Logan (Aenopia)  Terry Tibbs talk to me  Look at what I've done. Empire of Aenopia flag.png 13:35, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This article is quite good, and about as detailed as you can get for a convention article. However, I feel like more detail should be put into the Content section. Other than that, good work! Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 11:53, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT i see no issues with the article. Isaiah (Chat) 13:59, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Emperor Anthony I (talk) 21:55, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Upon closer inspection you notice that some of the text of some sections may be rather confusing to readers. For instance; "In total, 6 meetings took place between 11 October 2020 and 21 November 2020, lasting 42 days in total" should explain that the meetings were for the creation of the convention. It also links to articles that have already been linked throughout (which is redundant), minor spelling mistakes, and some sentences can generally be worded better to be made less redundant. Also what constitutes a "notable nation"? I do not disagree with it, but it is certainly subjective and rather odd to include it. Should be a very easy fix, than I can fully see this gaining GA status. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 19:04, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Glorious Anthean Republic

Ives Blackwood (talk) 13:19, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

I reckon that this meets the criteria. The ostensible lack of detail on some matters (e.g. culture, party politics) reflects the fact that the information does not yet exist — the entry is about a nation that is fewer than two hours old. —Ives Blackwood (talk) 13:19, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE While this article is very detailed, it lacks sufficient references which are generally a requirement for such long pages about micronations. Also, I would possibly recommend re-nominating once the nation has been around long enough to have the party politics and culture you mentioned. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 13:30, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Considering the fact that the nation is quite literally a few hours old, I think that it should wait a bit longer to develop itself more in order to bulk up the page before the article is approved. Empire of Aenopia flag.png Logan (Aenopia)  Terry Tibbs talk to me  Look at what I've done. Empire of Aenopia flag.png 13:34, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The culture section is a bit stubby but it has a lot of potential. Isaiah (Chat) 13:57, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
  • COMMENT I do feel like it is too new and the page may be rapidly changing as the nation further develops; generally most GAs should be complete. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 17:05, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE I think this article is well referenced, and very detailed in some areas. However, I find the lack of consistency with that detail to really bring this page down. Sections such as History need to be updated to even include the year 2020. In addition, the Government section could go into more detail on how the Government works and how the different branches interconnect with one another. Also, the Diplomacy section could be improved in aesthetics, as well as better explaining the foreign policy. Also, make sure to go over and proof read the page, I found a couple of grammatical and spelling mistakes here and there.

  • OPPOSE This article could get up to scratch easily with your editing skills. However, the main issue which jumps out at me is that the page has a lot of stubby sections. If at all possible try and expand these sections by filling relevant information in, and this is going to sound like I'm telling a primary schooler, but consider who, what, when, where, why and how for expanding these sections.

Well, I for one don't think it is worthy of being a GA just yet, but I would like tips! What should I add? What should I change?

  • OPPOSE Definitely needs more references, and one thing I noted is that the article flips between Snagov, the nation and the country. I'd recommend sticking to one instead of changing. Some sections such as the ones in Demographics are rather stubby and could do with some expansion. There are far too many redlinks, and some sections could be worded a bit better. Other than that it's a very good article that with a bit of work could be worthy of GA status.

  • OPPOSE I would wait a few more weeks, considering you just finished adding a large amount of content, and some sentences need closer inspection; several sentences could be worded better, as some are needlessly long or may be confusing to readers, and articles which have already been linked continue to be linked throughout. Some sentences use apostrophes ('for the foreseeable future', 'The Reform Act', 'Year micronational anniversary'), and I do not see the need for them. There are also several other minor grammatical mistakes. The article also uses a needless amount of citations just to reach a high amount, as for instance "[...] Ross would sign the constitution of the Glorious Anthean Republic alongside 17 other micronationalists." uses four; one citation, preferably the news article from Home-made Crown Journal would be ideal in that case. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 13:49, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
    • COMMENT Expanding on redundancy a bit more, the sentence "Ross served as a key figure in the Sough2020 project, acting as the author of the treaty and leader of the Sough2020 convention" should it not read; "Ross was the author and leader of the Sough2020 convention [...]" instead? Also some factual inaccuracies, I am not sure if it is phrased in the wrong location but Statistic-Dime had no involvement in the 19th Microwiki Influence Survey. Also on the "Trio" incident, Cameron Koehler claims (I have a screenshot of the message somewhere) he vandalised the MicroWiki article of Tom Kap, after being pressure to do so by Ellis and Charles Ross, so that sentence should be rephrased. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 00:52, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE Still needs work; opening is pretty short and can be expanded. I also noticed several grammatical, format and spelling mistakes, such as "May of 2019" which should just read "May 2019", occasional uses of the wrong there/ir/'re, and improperly capitalised words; some sentences can also just be worded better. Furthermore, some sections are rather short, like Ministries (could expand by adding the Ministers), Provincial Departments, Climate and Transportation, which is a pretty large industry in Wegmat. I also think the article should expand on animal citizenship, such as how animals are able to obtain it. Furthermore, the sentence "[...] “education” channel Wormhole TV" may also confuse some readers on why education is under quotations.

  • COMMENT As far as grammar goes it is very well written, and the images are perfect, but it has minor formatting issues, such as the date format which should be spelled "1 February 2021". On the part about the four battles with the Blackpink Forces, I think it should explain more who the Blackpink Forces were or how the battles took place and what happened. Also, some sections are a bit short (like Gadinagar and the history on the State of Indradhanush), but Indradhanush is new so I think it should wait as it will expand with time. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits) 13:37, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

There should also be some more details on the Boundaries Commission and background section in general, as well as on what the Beti scandal actually was. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits) 21:18, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT I've detailed why I like this article many times. Why stop now I guess? Really like the changes made to the first few paragraphs. They were sorta scattered but now they make more sense and have better organization.

  • SUPPORT Very nice article Isaiah (Chat) 14:07, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The History part has a lot of sections that are each just sixty words long each, I would consider merging them. For instance I would have only the Post-Charles Era, and remove 'The Leave' and 'The Return' as they seem a bit redundant. There are some issues with the tone, such as "Of course they also are taught to appreciate war and the good and bad it can do, as well as acknowledging it isn't always needed." I see MicroWiki under "Foreign Relations", which is odd since MicroWiki is a website, and MicroWiki@Discord is a social media, and neither of which really make sense for a section on foreign affairs, unless you mean the "MicroWiki Sector" (which in that case should be added). I do like the number of citations, lengths of the other sections, images and the spelling and grammar is not actually half-bad. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits) 14:50, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE It is a quite nice article, just it seems like it has some bias in some of the terms such as stating if something was a good thing for the nation or not. Also it has multiple sections that are extremely short and should probably be expanded or removed. Also subject areas that are blank other than their subsections don't really look too good graphically. Though the article is coming along really well I don't personally think it is GA yet.

  • OPPOSE "Background" could be expanded, such as the part on 18768 First Avenue which may be confusing; "[...] who in turn gave the property to the Church of Spiritual Technology in 1993, with construction beginning in 1997." was it the construction of a building itself or renovations to one to better suit the Church of Spiritual Technology? I also do not see the point in claiming the solider is anonymous and likely Montan, when it clearly and evidently was him. The article is of good length, though I believe it could have more detail, like who L. Ron Hubbard is and why Montan claimed to be him, as I believe in scientology it is believed he will return? ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits) 20:48, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE The article is certainly very well-written, however it contains some improper capitalisations and formatting issues. The section "Emperor Anthony I Era (2017-2021)" also contains some sentences which could be worded better (i.e. "In March of 2019, Jaiden Diaz became the second citizen, marking the end of the country having only one citizen [...]") and it is quite long, perhaps it could be trimmed down a bit.

  • OPPOSE The article still suffers from several problems I mentioned in its previous nomination; it takes itself too seriously for a jocular event, such as the image description "The location of the main battle" and claiming New Eiffel and His Royal Army of New Eiffel were involved, which neither were in any official capacity as the article implies. Also, the statement; "James Frisch, Rector of the Serene Beaconite Republic, did not care" is not relevant to the article in any way - several micronationalists responded in a jocular manner but they do not get a mention, whilst Frisch not making any acknowledgement of the event does, which is odd, and Lycon did not even approach him for a statement. As far as the wording goes, several sentences could be worded better or overall improved (particularly the sections Film adaptation and 911 Operator expansion). Additionally, the citations are mostly worthless (screenshots of Discord messages and edit revisions) or clumped up just to achieve a high amount. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits) 04:29, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
COMMENT Thank you for your response.
  1. Info relating to New Eiffel has been updated
  2. I am not aware about other responses, feel free to add them to the article
  3. Last time I checked other micronational leaders can add their opinion to something without first getting my opinion- that is called free speech
  4. Frisch's reaction technically is a neutral stance, since he bothered to edit in the article but did not declare any affiliation
  5. The article describes the incident in detail, I suppose the image subtext can be edited
  6. Photos and even Twitter and YouTube can be considered citations- if Twitter can be considered an appropriate citation then I suppose Discord could considering it's messages on a internet forum. What should be considered a worthless citation? Jaydenfromcanada (talk) | Sent from Mail for Windows 10  these signature styles are terrible | 07:06, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Overturn GA status of Sixth Aenderian Republic

Nominator: addison (talk) 04:06, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
  • COMMENT This article isn't bad. In fact, it's one of my favorite on the entire site. Upon having a closer look, though, I can see a number of mistakes; namely, some sections are written as though it were for a personal blog rather than a wiki, there are random caps in the middle of some sentences, and dead links all over the place (which are purposeful, i.e. "Main article: Government of the Aenderese Republic v. Jamez" where there is a dead link). Admittedly these mistakes are relatively minor but it does get me thinking that maybe its status as a Good Article should be reconsidered. addison (talk) 04:06, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
    • COMMENT I would like to add that the article is also very outdated by several months. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits) 04:47, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Over half of the article is devoted to the History section -- this should be moved into its own article, and summaries should be written for the main article. As well, regarding the History section: it is inundated with quotes and screenshots of chats. The Statistics "section" is a single short sentence. There's a large, mostly empty table in Administrative Regions.

It is time to return one of MicroWiki's first Good Articles to its rightful place. (The only reason this article lost GA status in the first place, was because it got mangled during the moves from MicroWikia to Referata to MicroWiki.org.uk.

    • COMMENT Some context on "will never truly be complete": The article itself is a completely and fully comprehensive treatise on the features of the Theodian language. The language itself is managed by the Linguistics Jury of the Technocratic Republic of Theodia, meaning that it will always be changing as time goes on. It's not a fixed language, if that makes sense. And to be fair, no language is. And because of that, no article on the topic can ever truly be considered "complete". /swέna/ 💬 16:10, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
    • COMMENT The benefits in the Benefits to learners section are self-evident. As well, the whole article was written by an actual linguist with degrees in the field; this article is the definitive source for information on the language. It is the source, so-to-speak. That said, I agree that the way the benefits section is written is not encyclopædic. I will revise it to emphasize how these are the claimed/intended benefits of learning the language. /swέna/ 💬 16:10, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Even if not complete, this article is expansive and covers the topic in pretty much any area you ever need to know. I see no mistakes and there are plenty of graphics.

Problematic issues raised during the initial GA discussion remain unfixed. The article as a whole requires a copyedit, for which the relevant template was removed in an edit war. Several sections such as the Constitutional convention and the First elections are rather poor. Whilst this certainly isn't a poor article, it certainly isn't befitting of good article status.

It's not a stub, either; that's where an article's too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of a subject and is capable of expansion, and I don't think that's the case here. Unless we're saying that some topics simply can't have GA articles written on them (and I'd actually agree with that, but I don't think a geographical feature is one of the those topics), how would you suggest the article be improved to make it GA-standard?

Remove GA Status from Kingdom of Ebenthal

Nominator: Flag of Wendatia.svg jonas | talk 17:41, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

I am pretty convinced most of the article is false. I will give a quick rundown on why, but I recommend you read through this. One of the old images featured an American Exit Sign. Remember that Ebenthal is located in Brazil. When another user mentioned it, the author of the article had changed the image to something else. Doesn't help that he cleared that section of the talk page.

  • OPPOSE Ebenthal's article is one of the best examples of a well-written article and also one of the few to achieve good article status despite being written by an user of whose English is not the first language. I would request @WeaponizingArchitecture: to simply not contribute highly in criticizing other's works and efforts, but to contribute highly to improve your works which lacks efforts. Vishwamitra flag icon.svg  • Oritsu.me  • Let's talk here  • Contribs
  • OPPOSE Again, this matter when ONE guy accused the article of being fake was extensively debated in the discord server after a conflict, it got the attention of three administrators and mods, and it was solved, until you resolved, for whatever reason (which doesn't seems to be an act of good faiht, if one ask me) to dig in the the article's excluded comments (which were excluded following months the matter was settled, for being purposelesly there; If I would hide something, I wouldn't delete it literally 8 months after the matter was solved, would I? Out of nowhere?). I mean, with what purpose dig in if not find hypothetical reasons to mess with the article? I won't discuss the whole RESOLVED affair with that ONE wrong image which was changed precisely for correction and accuracy AGAIN and after DISCUSSION involving administrators Zed and Luxor you are not aware (because it does not concern you) and simply making accusations without knowing the full facts. Honestly, this is getting really tiresome. Based on such accusation, shall I pin articles as dubious when they have no sources or as little as three, four sources? For God's sake... live your own life and leave my micronation alone. Arthur Brum (talk) 18:06, 6 June 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Despite the matter being resolved, it's interesting to note the particular judgment of some people and the resources they employ to try to harm other people, even under the guise of improving the site, which the nominator himself doesn't do, as seen in articles that the nominator contributed, as an example, the Co-operative Republic of Wendatia. The criteria that would eliminate the article under analysis would certainly also disqualify the nominator's article; this, of course, if the article was reasonable enough to dispute the Good Article label. The best thing would be, in the first place, to discard this childish attempt to harm other people efforts. Second, should be abolished this opportunity for anyone, without criteria, to decide what suits the site in terms of standard and excellence. It's ok to have a right to indicate articles to be Good Articles, but the decision should be made by minimally qualified people. This privilege MicroWiki has given its users has been used regretfully by some individuals. Karno-Ruthenian Government (talk) 15:19, 6 June 2021 (UTC-3)
  • OPPOSE Ebenthal's article is one of the best articles on the wiki, the best of its own government's knowledge, and in no way should it lose its good article status which has been achieved by its merit of a very well written, articulate and totally truthful article.

      "Pedro II College noble room, designated as one of the three usable rooms by the Tribune of Truth, along with the UNESA court room and the UFRJ Noble Saloon.[e] These rooms are theorically of free use by alumni. Nonetheless, the Tribune of Truth has never used any of those." was a VERY SIMILAR caption to the previous, with the previous being "Pedro II College conference room, designated as one of the three usable rooms by the Tribune of Truth, along with the UNESA court room and the UFRJ Noble Saloon." It just makes it harder for me to believe the article if they changed the image 3 times and the caption has mostly remained the same for 2 of them.

You are simply ignoring every explanation, you are completelly ignoring the fact that this discussin has already happened before, you are ignoring that this discussion had already been taken to adminship, you are ignoring that there have been a whole talk on this in the Discord server months ago, basing your claim on the deleted talk page which was the beggining for the further discussion which took place at the Discord server, and which was only deleted MONTHS after the matter was solved, because there was no reason to leave it there. And the worse part is that you are cementing your claim to falsity based on a "fake imagem" that is no longer in the article since last year, and, again, ignoring my explanation of why it was there and why it was removed. You are actually ignoring everything to support your narrative, which is clearer now given how you said "the author wiped out", while occulting the facts behind it as I mentioned. Worth notice, you are doing this after, for some reason, give yourself the trouble to check not the article's editing record, but the talk page's editing history/record. I mean, who does this with no purpose? And you stay wanna say that people can't talk of you acting out of jealousy. Why not, when it seems exactly this? Arthur Brum (talk) 00:06, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

    • COMMENT And even so, Emmanuel Paiva is a known photographer from Rio de Janeiro who takes photo of every street possible since 2005. He took photos even of my house. Also, about the Itatiaia photo, you can see I've made no false claims since on its description it is written that the photo pre-dates Ebenthal's existence as it is from Itatiaia National Park, where part of Ebenthal came to lay claim later: "Rare occurrence of snow in the geographical region where the city of Novesfora is currently located, pre-dating Ebenthali independence and the city's foundation" is what is written. It wasn't anything like "Photo of Ebenthal in 1984". Furthermore, the one wrong photo which had been PREVIOUSLY on the article was added: 1. when I was creating the article, as a matter of illustration as the article was being created and constantly edited. 2. It was removed upon noticed and substituted correctly and have been unchanged since. an you noticed well, Mr. Jonas wants to remove the GA status of the article over a photo that is no longer present at the article for months, even before the article was nominated for GA status. It makes no sense. Arthur Brum (talk) 12:43, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Nominator: Indradhanush Flag.jpg User:Indradhanush 2:30, 14 June 2021

One of the original Good Articles of MicroWiki, lost its status during the MicroWiki- MicroWikia transfer mess. Regarding the article, it is the successor of Þeûdspråxa that got stripped of its GA status after popular opinion. It is one of the highest quality page on language in MicroWiki and can be comparable to language pages in Wikipedia.

  • SUPPORT I forgot to write this before but this is a true gem of an article in MicroWiki. User:Indradhanush
  • SUPPORT Chancellor.jaredbarker (talk) 02:59, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This is a really shocking article. Yes, shocking, for the effort put not only onto this, but to create the language and to display it so well, in so many details in an article top-level. Equals, in some aspects even surpass, articles on languages in English wikipedia. Astonishing. Really deserving GA status. Arthur Brum (talk) 20:22, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Apart from the minor TODO issue, this should be the model for what articles about languages should look like. Luxor (talk) 08:26, 21 June 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT While this article will never truly be complete, it is far and away one of the highest-quality articles on the wiki. It is time to return one of MicroWiki's first Good Articles to its rightful place. (The only reason this article lost GA status in the first place, was because it got mangled during the moves from MicroWikia to Referata to MicroWiki.org.uk. I fixed that mangling many, many years ago; but never reapplied for GA status, out of misplaced perfectionism.) /swέna/ 💬 04:34, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT This is a pretty good biographical article I feel, the only issues I noticed looking through was that the 163rd reference has an error and I believe that for dates with manual of style if you have the same year mentioned in the same section twice then you only include the year in the first one. Example: On 6 May 2020, Mark lost his shoe. On 7 May he found it." and then you only include the year again if the year has changed, I could be wrong on that but that's what I remember, other than those small things this is pretty good.

If you have any reasons to oppose the article, list them in your opposition and they should be fixed in the next 24 hours since you had posted it.

  • SUPPORT This is about the fourth time it's been submitted and honestly I don't know if it's going to achieve GA. Though, it has improved a lot since last time and is an amazing article. After Burdette got removed, I'm not sure that Ela'r'oech would make it this time around, even if I still sort of want it to. Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 13:21, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE There are still a large amount of issues scattered across the article, and I do not believe this article will be ready for GA status without a compete copyedit. For starters, dates either flick between [month dateth] (eg. May 9th), [month date, year] (eg. April 18th, 2021) or [date month] (eg. 9 May), with the first two being the incorrect format for Good Articles. Secondly, there are still issues with formality, such as "Runnymeden War *DID NOT COME INTO EFFECT* - Was an attempted war" or "had considered attempting to join the Grand Unified Micronational, however it decided they may not have been accepted" - the latter is unnecessary detail which should be omitted.

    Some details such as "Note: Brandon Jacobs is not included as his membership in Parliament was a posthumous award, not considered to be a legal assumption of office. However, Charles Madgett is included as the King does have an Independent spot in Parliament, mainly to act for no internal conflict." should be formatted as an actual note instead of their current formatting. In addition, almost all sections seem rather short (although only a handful constitute as stubs, almost all of them are merely short - on their own this wouldn't be an issue however when almost the entire article has been formatted in such a manner it creates an issue). Another issue relating to the dates are a lack of specific dates - for example, the Military section features "In early October," without a year - if a reader was to take a look at this, they (and myself) would not know when it was specifically - was it a previous date? a future date? when specifically?

    One of the biggest issues that I have noticed whilst reading the article are poorly written sections, such as "are examples of that" in Art. This also reflects on the SPaG issues scattered throughout the article, with one of the most common issues that I've seen on this article, and indeed across MicroWiki, is the random usage of "it's" instead of "its" (eg. "it overhauled it's political system" instead of "Ela'r'oech overhauled its political system"). Finally some sections should either be expanded (such as Art), or completely omitted (such as Structure Rating System or Media Rating System) - I feel like sections such as Structure Rating System should be omitted from a main article and included in its own, high-quality article instead.

    I must finally add that there is absolutely no reason why this article cannot reach Good Article status - the fact that it has been submitted 4 times indicates that the authors are fully committed to improving this article, and is respectable to say the least. However, there are lots of issues that need to be ironed out before it can reach Good Article status, especially including a copyedit. If the nominees wish for some help to improve this article, then I would be happy to provide assistance. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 15:42, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

    • COMMENT @Aenopia: What would those issues be? Matt talk ☼ 00:35, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
    • COMMENT For starters, the website link is placed in the centre of the introduction and strangely enough has a reference which is literally just the website link. The use of references throughout the article seems to be incorrect, such as reference#4 on the Ohřevian National Television section. The website link could be moved to the infobox using "|notes =". Some parts are worded awkwardly, such as "It was choosen because of the origion name of river that flows through country and was named by it". The date format used is also incorrect, with sections featuring "27th of April 2021" when they should instead be "27 April 2021". I also noticed that some words in the Governance section are highlighted in bold - this also seems to occur in sections throughout the article such as National Symbols.

Nominator: .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 22:16, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

This is an article that I have spent a while on by ensuring that it is a decent article. Originally I was going to have it as its own article about Aenopia's position within the MW community, however I decided to merge it with the pre-existing Foreign affairs page. Overall, I feel like it's a decent page - it's got a decent amount of references, images, links, infographics, etc. I have compressed some parts which may be a difficult rad, such as the foreign affairs and list of sessions attended by Aenopia in the CA, into smaller portions and added collapsible tabs where applicable. Although I feel like some sections will require improvement, especially the foreign affairs and NADU sections, I still feel as if it's reached a quality worthy of GA status.

Specifically in the sections "Sister cities" and "Organisations". Personally, I also think that a gallery should always be preceded by text (or in this case, the Multiple image template at the start of the article body). I do not think these are criteria for rejection, just that by approving a submission as a good article we are establishing some conventions people will usually consult during their edit process, and I am not sure if these two practices are the best to adopt.

  • OPPOSE The main reason I am opposing this is due to the frequent use of bold text throughout the article. Bold text should only be used to highlight the title of the article in the first sentence. However, you should avoid using bold to add emphasis to the article.
There are no non-flag images or graphics throughout the article, which could be used to enhance or clarify the content. If you are going to have a resources section, don't organise it using referencing tags, and if you are going to do references you should reference them using a consistent referencing style. This has the potential to become a good article in the future, just it needs some work before it gets there. Matt talk ☼ 00:02, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
  • REVISION Thank you for your feedback, I adjusted the article and reduced bold text and added images. Thanks User:Matt. Devinpurcell (talk) 18:29, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Okay, I'm here with my second OPPOSE comment and I'm not sure I am allowed to do this. Anyway, there are multiple stubby sections that require expanding, such as History and Culture. The Micronational Recognition table is incomplete. Matt talk ☼ 01:05, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

Ela'r'oech

Nominator: Ela'r'oech Charles The article has been being submitted somewhat for months this year and the year before. It has had work on it continuously and with very few surges of inactivity since August 2020. I am still working on it as well. Opening it to be judged and voted upon yet again. My goal really isn't to get GA at this point, it's more or less just a way to get feedback for me but I don't see that as a bad thing. If I get Good Article along the way, then good. Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 21:23, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Looks nice overall, didn't read every word but it looks nice. GA worthy. Devinpurcell (talk) 12:50, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Ela'r'oech is a great article and has been for quite a while. Definitely GA Worthy. Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 19:29, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Many of the issues still remain since the last time this was nominated, especially the fact that a majority of sections are stubs. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 22:09, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE What Logan said. These issues have to be taken into consideration before it can be nominated for Good Article. Matt talk ☼ 00:59, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
  • REVISION I've expanded some of the sections and merged another. The issues have been taken into consideration and solved as far as I am aware. Please inform me of any other problems so you can change your votes. Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 16:38, 21 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The History section has too many short sections. Merge them into larger periods of time. The Geography section is quite short. What is the foreign policy of Ela'r'oech? Your foreign relations section is just a list of recognised nations, some of which have dissolved long ago, such as Naveria. Some parts don't really belog on a main article, such as media classifications. Also, the "Part of a series on Charles Madgett" doesn't really belong on this article. Several smaller issues have also been mentioned by other users. Best of luck in your attempt to get GA, I believe you'll achieve it soon. Swannian Flag.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 03:14, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
  • REVISION I've reformed many sections and subsections, notably the new "Foreign Policy" subsection has replaced the "Foreign Relations" subsection and the "Elarian Eras" subsections has gone down from 7 to 5. I have also removed the "Part of a series on Charles Madgett" module. The rating systems have been removed and will possibly be added to an article dedicated to Ela'r'oech's Culture, which has had a growth of it's own with a bigger first paragraph. The entire "Economy" section's subsections have been merged into the simple Economy section alone. The Geography section has also expanded. Please inform me of any other problems so you can change your votes. Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 04:09, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

Saspearian Declaration of Independence

Nominator: Emperor Anthony I (talk) 02:11, 13 September 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE The article is very short and relatively disorganized with low-quality images. Devinpurcell (talk) 12:39, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
  • COMMENT @Devinpurcell: The article is well expanded upon and I think the article is also well structured. I don't believe that the quality of the images affects the requirements for a Good Article. - Emperor Anthony I
  • OPPOSE I wrote oppose last month, for the following reason: "This has been on the nominations for a few months now and has received relatively little interest. Overall pretty well detailed for an article of its kind, but there are still some issues with grammar, and some sentences go on for too long. They'd benefit from being broken up into smaller sentences." Since then, the nominator has not even edited the page in line with suggestions. No edits have been made to this page since APRIL 2021. Stop nominating a page to get it to GA without putting in the work to make it better. It's shameful, and it's an insult to everyone who actually puts hours and hours of work into pages to nominate them here. Swannian Flag.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 03:36, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
  • COMMENT @Australis: I've made a few changes, and I believe this article is just barely worthy of a Good Article. Feel free to discuss this further. border-style="color:black" addison (talk) 16:03, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The article, along with the other criticisms presented, has grammatical issues and confusing sentences "Thus, the document a unilateral declaration of independence." There are also sections that are written vaguely and without specifics, this is most notably in the Document section which says things like "At around noon CST the same day," and "It was likely a few minutes after" and other vague statements not relating to time like "Saspearian likely had some internal and external activity" and "most of the founding fathers" who are not been specified in the document. Information is also presented in confusing ways, such as in the document section which seems to imply that the document was finished on three separate occasions, before Anthony got to school ("It was likely a few minutes after the creation of the document that Anthony had to arrive at his then middle school.") at the school lunch table, ("he presented several people with the document, with most of the founding fathers signing the declaration during this time.") and then once get got home after school ("Around 5-7 PM CST, Anthony came to what is now known as Unueco, Saspearian... The final touches were added to the declaration.). The idea of this article being just good enough shouldn't be the standard for if an article get's good article status, especially if the article hasn't been given the care to get it to that point. If it is felt that not much more can be added, and that's why it keeps being renominated in its current state, I would suggest adding information about the legacy of the document and criticisms to extend and expand upon the article.𝄞 StrubberContributions02:13, 6 December 2021 (UTC) 12:21, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
  • COMMENT

@Strubber: I've made some changes to the article and I hope that my recent edits on the page resolved these issues. Emperor Anthony I (talk) 01:13, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

Oscar I, Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia

Nominator: Matt talk ☼ 03:04, 17 September 2021 (UTC) I stumbled across this article today. This is not my article and it is quite old, but I believe it will be a good canidiate.

  • SUPPORT A well-detailed article, however, I think the Portrayals in literature section should be expanded or merged with another part of the article. Swannian Flag.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 03:43, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE This article is rife with grammatical errors. Even just reading the second paragraph of the "King of the Ruthenians" section I was able to find numerous issues such as "His reign was essential to make Ruthenia, even young, a thriving micronation" and "and banning totalitarian doctrines in Ruthenian territory, like Fascism and Communism, which was an ardent opponent." These are present throughout the article and should be fixed. The introduction section should also be expanded, which is common in other personal articles that have reached good article status. The entire "Reign after the Compromise" also doesn't mention Oscar by name at all, which would be nice to specify what "his" is being referred to post section break. 𝄞 StrubberContributions02:13, 6 December 2021 (UTC) 12:32, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

Federated States of Gapla

Nominator: Wyatt400 (President of the Federated States of Gapla) 16:39, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

I have worked on this article for a long time, and has substantially been updated since the last nomination. Would love constructive feedback, is a lengthy but well-written article (in my personal opinion). Wyatt400 (President of the Federated States of Gapla) 16:39, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE Many parts of this article only exist to lengthen it. Several sections, such as the elections section, should be in its own article. I normally like tables, but I feel like this article overuses them to make the article seem longer. Some sections also seem a bit short.

Bartonia

Nominator: Jak123 talk ☼ 09:32, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE Almost entirely filled with stubs, no references, some sections should either have their own page or be grouped together better such as rankings, incorrect date formatting and very few pictures. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 15:12, 23 September 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE As above, also has a number of grammatical errors that make the article pretty hard to read. border-style="color:black" addison (talk) 15:52, 23 September 2021 (UTC)

Alexander I, Basileus of Cimbrun

Nominator: ImperatorofOrini 10:48, 27 September 2021 (CST)

This article, alongside many others, has been worked on extensively. I believe this article about myself, though brief, is well-written and informative enough to warrant Good Article status. I request constructive criticism so that I may add onto this article even if it gets accepted.

  • OPPOSE Stub article, the writer does not appear to be a native English speaker/writer, so a native English speaker must revise this article, which I will assist with. Otherwise, it is a stub and there is only one image, which is low quality at that. Devinpurcell (talk) 13:39, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

November

2021 Georgienstinian presidential election

Nominator: Alexandre Olivier, Majority Leader of the National Congress of Georgienstine

This page was made in the past year as the Presidential Election was happening. With the election over, in my opinion, the page is detailed enough to be a Good Article. Thanks!

  • OPPOSE Not much has changed since it was last nominated 2 months ago. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 21:16, 17 October 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I Personally see it as a well done article of good quality. MSTarget (talk)
  • SUPPORT Personally, I see one or two little things to change, as the size of images and their position in the text for example, but in general seems to me a good article. Karno-Ruthenian Government (talk)
  • OPPOSE Not necessarily a bad article by any means, but I can see quite a bit which should be fixed before it's GA-worthy. The article doesn't need to be broken down into so many small sub-sections (some of which are only a sentence or two long), and some parts about past events seem to be written in present tense. Also, do make sure that references at the end of a sentence go after the full stop.

Winterspell

Previous Nominator: Chandrachur Basu. Current Nominator: King Petrus I
  • SUPPORT It's a great article. Matt talk ☼ 01:40, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Activly improved over the years, I like where it is now. MSTarget (talk)
  • SUPPORT this article is extremely informative and easy to read. I feel like I belong to Winterspell having read the article. (Ameristralia talk) 09:37, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Informative, a good amount of images. Perhaps is a good idea to padronize the size of images, but is a nice article anyway. Karno-Ruthenian Government (talk)
  • SUPPORT Austenasia (talk) 12:11, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

Ela'r'oech

Nominator: Charles
  • SUPPORT Because of course guys we already know I'd vote on this. Great article. Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 05:39, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT It is a good article and also a functioning state. It also fits the Standard for MWiki Good Articles. Mtonna257 Flagicon D.C.R. Melite.png 20:16, 13 November 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The stuck record is here to point out that almost none of the issues that I pointed out the last time this was nominated have been fixed. For more info on these, pleas check back to previous nominations. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 16:24, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  • REVISION The History section was revised for era "groups," of which there are two. There's no real stubs other than those era sections though as far as I'm aware or would count. Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 19:08, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This article has been meticulously reviewed and edited for years, and deserves GA status, for it has achieved what this site considers greatness. .User:Andrew I of Pontunia
  • SUPPORT Charles has clearly worked very hard on this page and it deserves GA. The sections are instresting to read and I can easily find information for Ela'r'oech there. One small issue with the page is that some sections are too long. User:TheMilesWiki
  • SUPPORT Charles and Bryce have spent countless nights restless, leaning over their computers to fix and edit this article. However there are various errors that I would deem minor. Fix those and it'll be a solid 10/10. Christoph Billung
  • OPPOSE Yes, this article still has the issues it had last time it was nominated. They really need to be fixed before it is acheives the title, no matter how minor they are. I apperciate the effort that has gone into making this article, but a mit more time to fix the minor issues will be worth it. Matt talk ☼ 22:43, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Not bad --MSTarget (talk)
  • SUPPORT It looks quite good, though would suggest a bit more copy editing work on it, and a lot of stuff on the dispute I think could use some other terms rather than how it is phrased at the moment, though otherwise it is a quite long article. --𝙷𝙸𝙼 𝙲𝚑𝚛𝚒𝚜𝚝𝚒𝚗𝚊 𝙸 𝚘𝚏 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚘𝚕𝚍𝚒𝚊 Flag of Cycoldia Real.svg (𝚝𝚊𝚕𝚔) 10:18, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE As above; hasn't fixed previous issues pointed out on previous nominations. At first glance date formatting isn't to standard in introduction.
    • REJECTED Please remember that a simple majority of votes isn't what we take into account when deciding these. "They worked hard" and "Not bad" aren't really of the same weight as "problems previously noted haven't been fixed". Even some of the supports are pointing out problems.
