Nominator: Source.png User:Leylandiistan:Hello-About me 17:33, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Overall, this is a very well-written and comprehensive article. I've made a few minor changes, and am personally happy for it to become a Good Article. Austenasia (talk) 16:06, 18 April 2015 (BST)

Principality of Lomellina

Nominator: --AGMVieira (talk) 11:14, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Several spelling, grammatical and formatting mistakes, numerous red links, and some paragraphs which are far too short; one (Nobility) is a single sentence long. Austenasia (talk) 16:06, 18 April 2015 (BST)

October 2015

Taihan

Nominator: --His Majesty, Ruler of the dragons, Head of the Pegasus race, the Island Landlord Que Wu-huang (usertalk) 11:14, 21 July 2015 (BST)
  • OPPOSE I suppose it's well written, but a) there are a lot of red links, and b) I wouldn't say that "its claims are verifiable and not in dispute", especially as the IP of the author traces to the UK instead of east Asia. Austenasia (talk) 14:22, 21 July 2015 (BST)

Nominator: --His Majesty, Ruler of the dragons, Head of the Pegasus race, the Island Landlord Que Wu-huang (usertalk) 11:14, 21 July 2015 (BST)

People's Republic of Hashima

Nominator: --Fabriziodg91 (talk) 10:49, 13 October 2015 (BST)
  • SUPPORT The article is well-written, spelling and grammar are correct, comprehensive, accurate (news are updated almost in real time, after being published on the official website and/or official twitter), neutral, illustrated (for example with images of ID card, currency, ecc...), and well-structured in useful sections. I hope the good article status will be granted, the article deserves it. --Fabriziodg91 (talk) 10:49, 13 October 2015 (BST)
  • OPPOSE There are numerous minor spelling and grammar mistakes, the History section is more a large unwieldy timeline (the majority of which seems to focus on diplomatic affairs) than an actual summary of the micronation's history, there's only a single photograph in the entire article, the tables in the National Corps sections take up a large amount of space which isn't really necessary, the Foreign Relationships section could be made into a separate article, and - most significantly, in my opinion - the article gives the impression that the micronation actually controls this island, when several things make it quite clear that it doesn't actually operate there.

    • Comment The numerous minor spelling and grammar mistakes have been fixed (if there are still, i invite you to highlight them, so i can fix, or you can fix by yourself too, i'm ready to bet that the article under this point is better that the average article in the MicroWiki portal), the History section has been changed and fixed, more pics have been added to the article, the tables of the national corps have been fixed and don't take a very large amount of not necessary space, the foreign relationships section has been made into a separate article. For your impression, i don't know what to reply. Is like to don't recognize Tibet because the Dalai Lama and the Govern don't operate there, or is like to recognize the Islamic State just because they effectively operate inside their borders. The People's Republic of Hashima has also at today 32 foreign embassies (de facto), from where every aspect of the Micronation is dealed. Plus, the Parliament works everyday, and We are proud and sure to declare that the People's Republic of Hashima and its population deserves more the island that the Japanese government that leaved the island to its deathly faith since the 1960th. I hope you will grant the status of good article, being objective and impartial. Fabriziodg91 (talk) 11:55, 19 October 2015 (BST)
  • OPPOSE Numerous spelling mistakes are found, which make me weep for the bad grammar in the article. "National Days" needs a wikitable in order to look professional, I admit that the spacing in the text is ridiculous. The Geography section is almost empty and needs more pictures to describe the geography. Culture and Sport is almost empty and it needs to be filled up. Some areas of the article it has an unusual amount of white space that needs to be cut out. History section is fixed but needs to have proper grammar added to it. As Jonathan said, "the article gives the impression that the micronation actually controls this island, when several things make it quite clear that it doesn't actually operate there." --Dallin L.

    • Comment The "numerous" spelling mistakes and bad grammar have been fixed (again, if there are still, i invite you to highlight them, so i can fix, or you can fix by yourself too), the Geography section has been fixes, including adding more pics to itself. Culture and Sport have been fixed, media has been created, new pictures have been added to the Culture section. "National Days" has been fixed and moved under "Culture" section. White spaces have been deleted. About your impression, i'm not of the same opinion and i also invite you to review the "Criteria" for a good article, where your "impression" is not mentioned. Again, I hope the status of good article will be granted, being objective and impartial.Fabriziodg91 (talk) 11:49, 20 October 2015 (BST)
      • REJECTED - I'm sorry, but there are still numerous spelling and grammar mistakes. I understand that English may not be your first language, but there are plenty of people you could have asked to help (remind me and I will get round to helping correct mistakes, but the process on this page is for finding good articles, not making them). You have added more pictures, but all of them seem to be the sort you could have just found on the internet; there's none of "Hashima in real life" like citizens or events. Furthermore, the article still doesn't go far enough in specifying that Hashima doesn't actually control its territorial claims, but reads as if the island is actually under your control.
