Nominations

Mercury-class Destroyer

  • Writer — Sev40
  • Nominator — Sev40
  • Date of Creation — October 12th, 2015
  • Date of Nomination — February 11th, 2016
  • Description — A class of ships which served humanity's armed forces well for many decades, until the dark days of the Insurrection forced its retirement.
  • Why — The last ship article I submitted for the GA panel has bothering me for some time, as some of the feedback couldn't be incorporated into the article because of its strange theme. For that reason, I took that all onboard when I was writing this, going into more detail about the technical details than the history emphasis of its predecessor, including the possible modifications and the shortcomings of its many systems. With all that said, I hope I've managed to craft an article worthy of getting Good Article status.
  • Status — GA status granted.

Voting

  1. Support Support — Well, remember your Writer template, first of all. Free-use or not, it's still gotta be there. Period at the end of quotes. "Rouge" asteroids? So they're off-red? Neat that you've incorporated the different images you've found into an explanation within the article, being that they were so often modified. If these were built in the late 2400s up to 2510, it's kinda odd to say they're bigger than Marathon-class cruisers and call it "a massive achievement at the time" when the Marathon-class was just replacing the Halcyon-class at the time. Might make more sense to compare it to Halcyon-classes like the Pillar of Autumn. You spend an unusual amount of time describing the decor, but I kinda like it. Fresh angle to take. All in all, I like it. That Damn Sniper 05:38, February 11, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — The amount of variety and history in this article really sets it apart from others of its kind. During my first read I was really impressed by all the different functions it had. That sort of versatility really adds some realism to the article. Props for all those Nebulon-B frigate images, too. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Support Support — It's certainly an interesting article. You rarely see ship pages that predate the Human-Covenant War, let alone the Insurrection, and this is very well done. Brodie-001: Here to help
  4. Support Support — Per above Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 02:28, March 18, 2016 (UTC)

Sev40 - Do you know the difference between an error and a mistake, Ensign? Anyone can make an error. But that error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it:
TALK - 17:13, February 11, 2016 (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
Err Sniper, the Halcyon was designed in 2510, the first Mercury was built almost fifty years before in 2463. But I'll consider the fact the Phoenix was in use during its early production stages when I do a read-over.

Ah, so it was. But, the Marathon-class then replaced it, so although we don't know the dates it was designed and produced, we can assume sometime after, since it was widespread by 2525. Sounds like Phoenix is a good alternative.



Nathaniel-A143

  • Writer — Sierra-A143
  • Nominator — Coolbuddy379
  • Date of Creation — June 24, 2013
  • Date of Nomination — March 3, 2016
  • Description — A well-written article about a Spartan-III of Alpha Company who survives Operation: PROMETHEUS and continues his war against the Covenant.
  • Why — One of the best Alpha Company Spartan articles on HF, Sierra has gone to great lengths and put a lot of effort in making this article what it is today. I feel it deserves some more recognition other than FotM
  • Status — Nomination failed.

Voting

  1. Oppose Oppose — While the standard of writing is absolutely worthy of GA status, the main bulk of the text is littered with incomplete sections or sections lacking any real substance, as well as being lacking in pictures. Personally, I've never been a fan of an exhaustive combat history because it can weaken the article as a whole; instead I'd recommend condensing it so only the key battles in this particular character's narrative are addressed. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs)
  2. Neutral Neutral — You might want to explain how Nathaniel got aboard a ship when at 1 year old, they're only starting to learn their first steps. You can argue that in the future kids are taking pre-algebra in 5th Grade like Admiral Cole, but there are certain innate limits for humans at that age; someone else would've had to take him to the transport if his mother was killed, 'cause he'd have barely been done with breastfeeding at that time. Given that, I'm glad you mention him having little recollection of his parents. Remember to italicize ship names. There's a lot of content here, and of sufficient quality for GA, but I have to agree with Chak. This is in the style of some of the older S-II articles, with an expansive history, but not all of those events are critical. Keep what you have, and if you're determined to expand the events Alpha Company went through like the Bonanza Asteroid Belt, go for it, but you could probably cut down on the headers for post-war, especially those without any content yet. For those headers that aren't expanded but you do want to keep, at least take out the "In progress..." under each one, as those look kinda unprofessional. You've already got the Under Construction template to tell us those parts aren't done yet. Clean it up a bit, and yeah, I think it's suitable for GA. That Damn Sniper 19:32, March 6, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Oppose Oppose — I'll have to side with the others on this one. While it's certainly a quality article, it feels far too unfinished to really warrant the award even if it does pass the minimum requirements. I know Sierra's not been around for a few months at the time of writing, but it could do with a bit of fixing up to really shine. Brodie-001: Here to help
  4. Oppose Oppose — As per the others, this is a quality article that is hampered by short, inconsequential combat sections and "incomplete" addendums throughout. Normally I'm not bothered by incomplete biographies in articles, but in this case the incomplete sections really drag the article down. I would also recommend making the images larger, as the present size makes it very hard to make out the pictures. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together

Project SIGMA

  • Writer — Brodie-001
  • Nominator — Sev40
  • Date of Creation — December 16, 2012
  • Date of Nomination — March 9, 2016
  • Description — A little-known offshoot of the SPARTAN-II Program, intended to create supersoldiers who would embark on more secretive missions than their famous peers.
  • Why — For what is the central meeting place for many of Brodie's HCW characters, its surprising to see how little recognition it's received despite the obvious effort put into it. Its interesting to note that unlike most supersoldier project-articles, this article focuses solely on its operational history, reading more like a character article or an informative novel as a result.
  • Status — GA status granted.

  1. Support Support — Format's a little unusual, not incorporating an intro. Making some of the Overview section into an intro would fix that problem, though, since GA requires an 80-word intro at least. Writing quality's up to snuff, though, and there's plenty of content with some images to bolster it. That Damn Sniper 02:07, March 10, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — As per Sniper. Personally would like to see more images, though. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs)
  3. Support Support — A superb article, but I'm withholding support until there's a couple more images here to flesh it out. The second half of the article just feels very bare without image supplements. My issues have been addressed.Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support Support — I think I've made it up to par. Brodie-001: Here to help

Gamma Company

  • Writer — Ahalosniper
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — April 4th, 2014
  • Date of Nomination — May 11th, 2016
  • Description — An effort to give a robust expansion of the last Spartan-III class for use by the community as a common history and class list to prevent tag conflicts, allowing Gamma characters from disparate universes to interact without necessitating entire alternate universe character biographies.
  • Why — In addition to meeting the requirements for length, images, and formatting, the article serves a purpose for the site community as an open resource enabling easier collaborations.
  • Status — GA status granted.

Voting

  1. Neutral Neutral — Unless one of the other judges fails to respond timely. That Damn Sniper 05:12, May 12, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — A unique blend of canon expansion and community collaboration headed off by a veteran user. Definitely earns my vote. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  3. Support Support — A very detailed canon expansion with an amazing amount of effort put into not only incorporating as many users' work as possible but also to create a handy on-site resource for future Gamma work. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support Support — An excellent example of how to properly integrate canon and fanon materials. Definitely deserves the award. Brodie-001: Here to help
  5. Support Support — doesnt deserve anything because my spartans arent given the centre stage Joshua (Talk) (Contribs)

Halo: ENSIGN

  • Writer — KingOfYou115
  • Nominator — KingOfYou115
  • Date of Creation — February 17, 2016
  • Date of Nomination — August 15, 2016
  • Description — Halo: ENSIGN is a game that follows the story of the Spartan-III team, ENSIGN. With a variety of level design and a large focus on multiplayer, it is much different than any other previous Halo game, without losing it's Halo roots.
  • Why — After putting months of work into the concept of Halo: ENSIGN, I feel that the article has reached the point that it is considered "good." I have messed around with different concepts and storylines, and finally settled on this version of the game. With a lot of planning and creative concepts that went into this article, it is my most detailed article so far. I will continue to expand and elaborate on the article after the submission, so if it doesn't get approved this time, I can use your feedback to improve it and hopefully get it approved in the future.
  • Status — Pending

  1. Support Support — While in my opinion it could do with a few more pictures - controller layouts or character images, perhaps? - the page does meet Good Article standards. I do feel like the page could do with more detail in general, though it's not a deciding factor in my vote. Brodie-001: Here to help
  2. Support Support — In the opening paragraph, might want to say "early stages of fighting the Covenant Remnant", so it doesn't sound like they joined up with the Covenant, and "similar to previous Halo games" or the like instead of "unlike Halo 5", since Halo 1, 2, and ODST all cloned their protagonist for co-op play (though 3 did have Arbiter and the two Elites...). You might want to italicize the on-back description text, since it's something found on the theoretical item, so it's kind of a quote. Articles don't have to be finished, but I'd strongly suggest at least finding a better name than PLACEHOLDER, even if whatever name you use is just a placeholder. I would also raise the point that making the 'frisbee' known in the first bit of your story and only show up again as an end-credits scene makes it kind of irrelevant to the rest of the plot, and I'd find a way to incorporate it better instead of making it an unrelated teaser. I think the images in the gallery could be better used spread throughout the article to balance text with images, but all in all, it's well formatted, meticulously checked for conventions, and makes use of a little wikia coding in its own style, setting itself apart by not inheriting everything from previous game articles on the site. I think it's got my vote. That Damn Sniper 01:50, August 18, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Support Support — Most of my complaints with Halo: ENSIGN would be with it as a game. As an article, however, it meets and exceeds GA standards. Although I do concur with the criticisms put forward by Brodie and Sniper. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  4. Support Support — Not a fan of game articles in general, but as per the others this is a fully-fledged concept that meets Good Article standards. I appreciate that you take your idea and go all the way with it, looking into various different parts of the imagined game to create a coherent and believable whole.

TALK - 22:30 EST. Today is Wednesday, August 24, 2016.
Thanks for the input guys. Brodie, more images are on the way. :P

Ahalosniper, I'll mess around with the wording in the opening paragraph, see if I can word it well. As for the "frisbee" (two reasons i call it that: 1.) still coming up with a definitive name for it, and 2.) to keep it's purpose mysterious for now), I can probably reference it in the cutscene levels between the main parts of the game (Reassignment and New Recruits). As for the images, I will be getting more that I will spread throughout the page, it's just a matter of getting the images in the first place (currently can't play Halo Reach). And the PLACEHOLDER thing, I'll look into it.

Thanks again guys!

I mean to say the 'frisbee' is just a bit irrelevant at the moment; it's just an excuse for a sequel teaser. Usually something like this would be something important to the plot that was left over, say the Ark of the Covenant from Indiana Jones. So it needs more than just a mention here and there, some hint at what the danger it could do is, and where the story may go based on it.
