you can't nominate one of your own articles, but I'll nominate it if you want. Tfoeflag.pngB.C.E.R Neil, President of T.F.o.E, Copy Editor and Patroller.(Talk) 10:59, 25 March 2011 (GMT)
You can now, the rules have been changed.  aldy@wiki:~$ _  11:02, 25 March 2011 (GMT)
  • OPPOSE, still too many short sections for my liking, especially near the end.  aldy@wiki:~$ _  11:02, 25 March 2011 (GMT)
  • SUPPORT, it's not perfect, but good enough § Fishy § (TalkContribs) 11:05, 25 March 2011 (GMT)

Republic of Ultamiya

Nominator: Better flag ultamiya.png His Lordship, David Salapatalk 01:50, 12 April 2011 (GMT)

I am tired of reading none so I'm going to nominate this just to see what people think of its quality. Better flag ultamiya.png His Lordship, David Salapatalk 01:50, 12 April 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE On the right track and getting there, but needs more images mainly. A bit of copyediting for style, cohesion and conherence wouldn't be amis too. This is close, but not close enough. § Fishy § (TalkContribs) 10:02, 12 April 2011 (GMT)
  • SUPPORT It is a quite good article, and should ergo be labelled thus Tfoeflag.pngB.C.E.R Neil, President of T.F.o.E, Copy Editor and Patroller.(Talk) 11:22, 12 April 2011 (GMT)
  • OPPOSE The article currently has too many subheadings under History which could be condensed into less than half a dozen. Government needs expanding upon, Geography could probably be put into one paragraph (without the subheading Climate). In fact, for most of your paragraphs which only consist of two lines, they should just be merged with another paragraph to make them actually substantial. For numbers less than ten, write out the word (dates excluded, minor thing only). As Fishy said, include more images, perhaps of districts or something if you can't find anything more suitable. Overall, needs moar desu. ;)  aldy@wiki:~$ _  09:07, 14 April 2011 (GMT)

  • SUPPORT Also a quite good article Tfoeflag.pngB.C.E.R Neil, President of T.F.o.E, Copy Editor and Patroller.(Talk) 11:22, 12 April 2011 (GMT)
  • OPPOSE The whole article is literally just full of one or two line paragraphs, needs a more substantial introduction and more detailed descriptions needed throughout.  aldy@wiki:~$ _  09:07, 14 April 2011 (GMT)

Changed the formatting quite a bit to take up less room and added a longer description. Any possible suggestions for further improvement?  aldy@wiki:~$ _  11:42, 12 April 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE Again, close but no cigar. More analysis would be good and the arrangement of the article could do with a bit of tidying up. § Fishy § (TalkContribs) 10:04, 12 April 2011 (GMT)

  • AGAINST Needs to be rewritten entirely to show that the entire thing was a fabrication and that all characters were merely personas of Lethler, infobox needs to be updated, history section needs to be updated to include the latter half of 2009, all of 2010 and a lengthy section about the dossier and the subsequent aftermath. Economic section should probably be removed considering it's all made-up and hence far more sections are needed to make the article substantial.  aldy@wiki:~$ _  06:15, 28 April 2011 (GMT)

New Guinea

Nominator: Archangel Talk * User 18:29, 7 June 2011 (GMT)

Comment: I made two rounds of the staff to get opinions on the article and a *LOT* of changes were made! The article is completely different from the one originally written. I took a leap of faith and took up every suggestion from those kind enough to critique the article. In cases where suggestions contradicted, I made a judgement call. I hope that the end result will get that GA status I am hoping for, if not, at least the article has had MAJOR improvements, and I thank everyone who critiqued and contributed in advance regardless of how the consensus goes. Thanks so much for all the help! Archangel Talk * User 18:29, 7 June 2011 (GMT)

  • SUPPORT Though I don't think the national bird needs its own section. Perhaps putting it in a Symbols article, if you have one, would work better in my opinion. :) Better flag ultamiya.png His Lordship, David Salapatalk 04:32, 8 June 2011 (GMT)

  • CONDITIONAL OPPOSITION - the article itself is flawless, but too many unlicensed images are included, and this needs to be rectified (hopefully by licensing the images under a free licence, as their use in the article is lovely) before I can support the nom. RCALABY TC 12:06, 8 June 2011 (GMT)
To my knowledge I either own the licenses or they are public domain. I will check on them to see if I messed up the license when I uploaded or something like that. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention.--Archangel Talk * User 17:31, 8 June 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE As much as I would like to support this, it just isn't up-to-date. It could use some more photos, perhaps photos of the secretaries or something. It would also be nice if there were a list of links to some of the more important legislation. I believe it fails criteria 2,3,and 5, and needs to be made to meet them. If that could be done, this would have my support.--Archangel Talk * User 02:41, 17 June 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE I know this is an important page, like the OAM page, but it just doesn't have any wow-factor. It isn't interesting. I am a big fan of photos, perhaps some photos of the key players. The more important the article, the higher are the standards to which we must hold it, and this is a very important page.--Archangel Talk * User 02:41, 17 June 2011 (GMT)

Nominator: Austenasia 17:43, 18 June 2011 (GMT)
  • OPPOSE On the good side, it has nice use of pics and graphic imagry, good length, and a lot of potential. However, it also has issues with red links, Some serious formatting problems, as well as some spelling and grammatical errors. The massive Awards and decorations section seriously needs to be on it's own list page, or in microcommons, or SOMETHING. The article has good potential, and I wouldn't mind seeing it come up again when the issues are taken care of. --Archangel Talk * User 01:19, 19 June 2011 (GMT)
So that I can improve it, can you tell me which spelling and grammatical errors and which formatting problems? Red links are slowly but surely being worked on. Austenasia 05:47, 19 June 2011 (GMT)
I did a bunch of them for you, but ran out of time. There are a ton more. The best course of action I would suggest would be to compare my edits to get an idea of the types of errors that are common on the article, or perhaps find someone who does a lot of proofreading to assist. Alternately, I'll keep at it for a week or two until I get them all. :) --Archangel Talk * User 07:15, 19 June 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE WHERE are the photos? As much as I would like to support this, it needs to have a few photos of the guy that the article is about or it is simply incomplete. I also noticed that there were no references or outside links sections, those are important. There are also too many wikipedia links, this isn't a wikipedia article, and all those links make it look like it was just lifted from wikipedia. The article could be lacking in other ways as well, I didn't even bother to look because there were no photos of the subject of the article. PS. I also corrected a mispelling for you, you should check for more. --Archangel Talk * User 23:21, 24 June 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE It is probably not your fault, as English appears to be your second language, but there are a lot of mispellings, such as "recognizement" should be "recognition", etc. English is very difficult that way. You can go through it with an English dictionary, or fancy spell checker, but it might be easier if an English speaking person just spent a little time to nail those down. Other than that, it is a decent article from what I saw so far.--Archangel Talk * User 04:06, 25 June 2011 (GMT)

I think that the article about the flag is great in itself and I like flags. As the New Buggs Bunny(from New Looney Tunes) would say "I like it". Flag of Burkland.jpg ComradeMr I · my user page · My "other" user page · My contribs 20:48, 21 July 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE - Some time ago my Diplomacy article was nominated and it was struck down because all it was was a paragraph and some tables. I oppose this because this is the same: Two paragraphs and some pictures. It's good for a flag article, but it doesn't need good article status. Also, the choice of wording could be a bit better in some places. Better flag ultamiya.png His Lordship, David Salapatalk 01:21, 22 July 2011 (GMT)
  • OPPOSE - I've seen better flag articles in my day. The content here is very scarce. It looks good, format-wise, but considering how many flags are in it, a lot more information could be given.--Sebastian Linden 09:42, 22 July 2011 (GMT)

The LBPOM begins to vandalize and damaging the governmental properties such as the border sign, the roadsigns, and also their started to make a grafitti texting the word was insulting the government."

In fact, I still think it deserves and I will write an essay-ish on why it deserves to be a GA.

  • SUPPORT I've checked it, corrected a few grammar mistakes and must say that I am really impressed by what you came up with.

Fits all the criteria as far as I can see. Sebastian Linden 00:18, 4 December 2011 (GMT)

  • OPPOSE - Doesn’t adequately meet the criterion for illustration, in my opinion, and consists of too many one-sentence paragraphs. Msander 01:01, 4 December 2011 (GMT)
    • Note the "where possible". We don't have any more images, nor can we currently make any. We might be able to make more in the not-so-near future, but for the meantime this is the most amount of images possible.--Sebastian Linden 13:36, 4 December 2011 (GMT)
      • The ‘and consists of too many one-sentence paragraphs’ part of my criticism still applies. Msander 23:01, 6 December 2011 (GMT)
        • Also, I take the ‘where possible’ bit of the illustration criterion meaning illustration where it is suitable, not where illustrations exist.

  • OPPOSE - Remember people, "it's well good" hardly counts as a valid reason for supporting a GA nomination. Read and address the criteria. In doing so, this article comes close to meeting the criteria. There are still some fairly major spelling and grammatical errors (e.g. "...Vian joined nemkhavia as the Kingdom of Vian..." and "Later in the month they officially applied and were excepted on September 25th 2011") which are my main gripes. Also, perhaps taking a leaf out of the Nation Page Guide would be a good idea with regards to sections, especially the 'military', 'economy', 'culture' and 'see also'. § Fishy § (TalkContribsWebsite) 23:18, 6 December 2011 (GMT)
