  • GUYS - the GA process is not supposed to be a strawpoll (MW:NOTDEMOCRACY etc). When voting, state your reasons for doing so, especially if you oppose. The point of this process is not a majority vote but for people to scrutinise the articles and for the staff to them determine whether or not they should be included as a GA based on the discussions that are had. tl;dr version: don't just put 'support' or 'opppose' - state the reasons for your vote because that's the whole point of this process.

  • TENTATIVE SUPPORT Pretty good and generally meets the criteria, but I'd like to see the history section perhaps moved to its own article and a 1-2 paragraph summary on the main article, just to cut down on the visual effects of the large blocks of text in this section.

  • SUPPORT BarnabyHands 12:05, 3 January 2013 (GMT)
  • SUPPORT meets all the criteria well - the only one that's a bit iffy for me is the comprehensiveness of it, but I don't think that it's reasonable to expect more detail on such a topic. Besides, that would probably make it too long... Dr. Freeman (TalkContribsWebsite) 22:45, 3 January 2013 (GMT)

  • COMMENT: the fact it's in "Cleanup" means little actually, since we don't have a standard for deciding when to denote articles as needing cleanup work. I cannot even tell why they placed the "outdated" template there, so it doesn't matter. If the article is good, that someone randomly put up a template at the top doesn't discourage me. ~Signed by: HRH James E Wilary I (Prsanea Flag.png Grand Duchy of Prsänëa) 17:40, 3 February 2013 (GMT)

Overturn GA status of Yablokogate

Nominator: Dr. Freeman (TalkContribsWebsite) 10:31, 15 March 2013 (GMT)

I would like to make a strong case for the declassification of the Yablokogate article as a GA. It fails three criteria: 2, 3 and 4. It is not comprehensive. The article totally neglects to mention Aldrich's second response to the accusations levelled against him, which was a major part in this entire affair, given that the dossier authors removed their authorship (save for Bradley and Lethler). The 'Legacy' section, which should include quite a bit of information on its numerous effects on subsequent goings on, consists of a single sentence. The proposed commission section also needs work. For Criterion 3, there were neutrality disputes from the time it was written that were never resolved. See the article's talk page for more information. Same goes for Criterion 4. This article was well on the way to becoming one of the best articles on MicroWiki, but it still needs a heck of a lot of work. If anyone gets around to actually doing it one day, then it will become one of the best GAs that we have. Until then, it clearly fails on three out of the six criteria for a GA, so I would strongly commend this to everyone concerned.
