Bailey-132

  • Article Name — Bailey-132
  • Writer — Anonymous ONI agent
  • Nominator — Anonymous ONI agent
  • Date of Creation — March 18, 2011
  • Date of Nomination — August 22, 2013
  • Description — The ongoing story of an especially aloof class 1 SPARTAN-II who begins to realize that he isn't the inhuman killing machine he seems to be.
  • Why — Despite being my flagship article, it has gotten no real recognition over the past three years, despite the character having coming a long way from being a poorly thought out self insert to being a developed character with his own dinstinct personality, morals, and desires.
  • Status — Granted Good Article status

  1. Support Support — I was very surprised to find that this article had won no awards yet. It's very well-detailed, tidy, and most of all, interesting. So I think it's about this this article is recognized as such. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email 14:50, August 22, 2013 (EST)
  2. Support Support — While I think this article is up to snuff for GA as it is, there are some things I'm sure are already planned for the article that I wish were there now. For example, a filled-out training and Chi Rho sections, which would keep the article from having an abrupt shift from early life to Spartan career. I like the fact that the early life and brother relationship is taken from real experiences, but if they were both at the same age to be conscripted together, it should be made clear that they were twins (or born very shortly apart, at least). The one other thing is that there's an imbalance of image use, with several clustered near the bottom while none exist within the expansive Harvest Campaign section. Get on it, Bailey! That Damn Sniper 23:14, August 23, 2013 (UTC)
  3. Support Support — Had to think about this one for a few minutes, but in the end I'd say that you've made Bailey into a great character and an interesting read and have put a lot of work into it. This is certainly up to Good Article standards. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  4. Support Support — I support this with the caveat that while it is up to par for GA status, I strongly recommend reviewing the biography section and coming up with a better story arc for the character. As things stand now, there isn't much to differentiate him from the dozens of other Spartan articles that pass through the GA panel. While this in no way stands in the way of it obtaining GA status, it may prevent the article from garnering further success in the future. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  5. Support Support —I have never been able to write proper SPARTAN articles, and therefore have respect for those who can. Well written and generally laid out. I would like to see a more even spread of images and blocks of text, but that's if I'm being really picky. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles

Doug-103

  • Article Name — Doug-103
  • Writer — Stellar Elite
  • Nominator — Stellar Elite
  • Date of Creation — June 4, 2010‎
  • Date of Nomination — August 24, 2013
  • Description — An epic odyssey around the exploits of a most peculiar SPARTAN-II, who, infamous among his peers for his proficiency with heavy weapons, learns that the galaxy holds far greater dangers than a vicious alien armada.
  • Why — For three years has Doug-103 been unpolished and quite shoddily made, so when I finally made my return to Halo Fanon, one of the first things I did with Doug was make him as big a character as Stel was. In the space of a few months he's gone from a borderline psychopathic sniper with no character at all to a heavy turret-toting joker with some actual character development. Originally, a shameless self-insert, as the same with Stel. Now? He's grown into his own, and I think he deserves something to indicate his worth.
  • Status — Granted Good Article status

Voting

  1. Support Support — On the one hand, I really like this article because it has a different organization and style that breaks the mold where a lot of my own SPARTAN articles have a very repeated setup, but I get the feeling that just one more rewrite would really make this article stand out. Some of the things that are mentioned should go into more detail, for instance explaining more clearly why there's a connection between Doug's discovery of K7-49 and why it brought him to the Battle of Kholo. His three years on Kholo are also prime for expansion; how did he gather this group of survivors, where did they settle or did they stay on the move, who among them stood out? Add a section for his time on Kholo after the battle itself and tell a short story with it. I love some of the little notes Stel's put into this, like the Mini-Slayer gametype, and while I would have chosen to put Early Life under a wider Biography heading, making it separate and equal to his military career is an artistic choice that is great because it's different from normal, and that's what's fantastic about this article. Expand it in some areas a little more, and it absolutely has my support. That Damn Sniper 02:53, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — While Sniper's points are indeed valid, I'm going to support this nomination due to the fact that Stel has really put the effort into improving the article's quality recently. It has enough to qualify for GA status, looking at the requirements, though adding more to it as per Sniper's advice would definitely go a long way in making Doug's page even better. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  3. Support Support — I must say that I've been waiting a very long time to see this article receive the attention it was missing, and now that I've read it again after such a long period of time, I will say that I'm very impressed. Well done, Stel. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email 0:56, August 27, 2013 (EST)
  4. Support Support — As per the others. A few story flaws as observed by Ahalosniper, but for the most part a very well-done article. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  5. Support Support — A nicely improved, well presented article. I would like the article's tone to be more in-universe 'encyclopedic', but I appreciate this is a personal choice and doesn't affect the article's quality. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles

  • In response to Sniper; I'm gonna get on to the short story with Doug's time on Kholo when I have the time to. It's something I've actually had planned for a while. I'll expand on the conundrum with K7-49 when I can. Just need the motivation. Stel goldenzealot Don't touch anything. Move along, citizen.

Melissa McKay

  • Article Name — Melissa McKay
  • Writer — Sonasaurus
  • Nominator — Laconia
  • Date of Creation — May 5, 2013
  • Date of Nomination — October 13, 2013
  • Description — A thoughtfully and artfully constructed expansion of the character Melissa McKay, detailing her origins and career throughout the Human-Covenant War.
  • Why — The character the article describes does not deviate from her depiction in Halo: The Flood, and this fanon backstory is a fitting one. McKay is one of my favorite ladies from the Halo universe and to see her given a proper life story pleases me greatly. Sona has accomplished what I had thought of doing myself, and I doubt I could have done a better job!
  • Status — Granted Good Article status

Voting

  1. Support Support — I remember Sona bringing this up before he started on it, and the idea's turned into a great article that crosses paths with a number of other stories within the AAO universe. It fits the bill for Good Articles to me. That Damn Sniper 20:05, October 13, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — As per the nomination. It's a shoo-in for the award. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  3. Support Support — I'm quite flattered that Ell thinks so highly of my article. Even though I'm still in the process of finishing all the sections, she was quite insistent on nominating it now. Still, I can't say that I haven't work hard on it, so much appreciated. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  4. Support Support — An excellent canon expansion article that I've read over a few times since its creation. Definitely worthy of good article status. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  5. Support Support — A detailed and well executed character expansion of the sort the site could use more of. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles

Halo: Pursuit

  • Article Name — Halo: Pursuit
  • Writer — Spartan 501
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — February 11th, 2013
  • Date of Nomination — October 13th, 2013
  • Description — A short story about a Spartan-IV Fireteam pursuing the elusive Codename: EGOR.
  • Why — The contrast between the capabilities of a four-man Spartan-IV team (incidentally including one S-III) and just one Spartan-II makes for quite a read, and I was especially intrigued because that S-II is Leonid-144, a character who has existed since the site's early years and has been included in some renowned projects. But that aside, the it's a well-written story and fits the requirements for a Good Article.

Richard Mack Sr.

  • Article Name — Richard Mack Sr.
  • Writer — Brodie-001
  • Nominator — Sonasaurus
  • Date of Creation — June 6, 2012
  • Date of Nomination — October 15, 2013
  • Description — A soldier of Project: ORION who went on to later become a hero in his campaigns against the Covenant.
  • Why — For one of Brodie's most badass characters, Richard Mack the First has received surprisingly little recognition as such. He has worked tremendously hard to flesh out such a lifelike character, and I think it'd be a shame to let that go unrecognized.
  • Status — Granted Good Article status

Voting

  1. Support Support — As per nomination. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  2. Support Support — Every section is thoroughly detailed and frequently manages to cross over with other characters, though I'd give the intro and first section or two one more read-through. A couple unnecessary apostrophes and awkward sentences stuck out to me while I was reading. That Damn Sniper 08:01, October 16, 2013 (UTC)
  3. Support Support — Mack Senior is an article that I've been working very hard on for quite some time now. I'm quite pleased with the progress I've made on it, and flattered that you guys think it is worthy of nomination. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  4. Support Support —A new personal favourite of mine. Odd though it sounds, I particularly like the fact that he is given an end, and the realism his death confers. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles

Roger-341

  • Article Name — Roger-341
  • Writer — Spartan 501
  • Nominator — Sonasaurus
  • Date of Creation — August 7, 2010
  • Date of Nomination — October 15, 2013
  • Description — A SPARTAN-II who fought in the Human-Covenant War and later parted ways with them to sell his services, and later train a new generation of SPARTAN-IIIs.
  • Why — This article is huge, and I mean huge. It wasn't brought to my attention until today, but now I can't believe I've overlooked something so thoroughly written. Roger is deeply rooted in many of 501's works, as well as those of his recurring collaborators, and as such his story is very rich in quality as well as quantity.

  1. Support Support — As per nomination. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  2. Support Support — Quite a long read, but well worth it and definitely deserving of the award. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  3. Support Support — As per the nomination, I'm surprised an article like this has slipped under the radar for so long. I was especially surprised to see that one of my own articles had been its inspiration when I (at long last) reached the trivia section. That being said, this article is an excellent demonstration of both the strengths and weaknesses of hyper long and detailed articles: it is very long, which can often be a deterrent for the casual reader. That being said, the (substantial) content is very good, telling the character's story in a way that invites us to understand the character's emotions and motivations rather than just his actions. Expansion on this unfinished article would be highly welcome, but as things stand now this more than deserves the GA. Actene:[Just trying to survive]

  • Writer — Spartan 501
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — January 6th, 2008
  • Date of Nomination — October 25th, 2013
  • Description — An extensive Spartan article about a character known to few, and feared by all among them.
  • Why — Of the famous flagship Spartan-IIs from HF's past, Leonid is the best-written in my opinion thanks to its recent rewrite, and is a nice piece to show how far back the site stretches and how it's progressed.
  • Status — Granted Good Article status

  1. Support Support — As per nomination. That Damn Sniper 22:36, October 25, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — To me, Leonid was one of the legendary figures in Halo Fanon's hall of Spartan characters. One of the classics who I greatly admired when I was merely an aspiring new user to Halo Fanon. And to see that 501 has given the article a repolishing is quite commendable. So of course, it has my wholehearted support for GA status. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  3. Support Support — While there isn't much I can say that hasn't already been expressed by Sona above, I have to say that this article was a pleasure to read and is certainly deserving of GA status; I'm surprised that it hadn't got it sooner. This is how you write a Spartan. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man

  • Writer — Laconia
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — September 30th, 2013
  • Date of Nomination — November 2nd, 2013
  • Description — A canon expansion of Jorge-052 that gives explanation to his particular attachment to Dr. Halsey and looks to detail his survival of the events of Halo: Reach.
  • Why — A canon expansion early in its building yet, but already filled with loving attention to detail and a solid number of images with signs of a clear future plan. I don't doubt that Laconia's going to go farther than just doing justice to one of her favorite Spartans.
  • Status — Nomination failed

  1. Support Support — As per nomination. That Damn Sniper 19:05, November 2, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — Maybe I've said it before, Ell needs another award like Halo Fanon needs another incomplete RP. But every time I read her work, I just somehow can't say no. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  3. Oppose Oppose — I'm going to shock everyone here by voting against this time around. It's not that there's anything wrong with the article, quite the opposite. It's great, definitely one of my favorites within the last few weeks, believably fleshing out the backstory and giving Jorge good, believable relationships with the other Spartans. There's plenty here already; however, I feel that the meat of the article, that is Jorge's survival and post-war activities is missing here. As it stands, this is a great article that is only hampered by its incomplete feel. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  4. Oppose Oppose — I had to think about this one for a long time, and in the end I've got to agree with Actene's point above. The work that has been done so far is great, but I'm afraid that it does feel rather incomplete overall and could do with having a few more sections finished to make it just that little bit better for GA status. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  5. Oppose Oppose — The parts of this article written thus far are superb, but the obvious gaps in its narrative prevent me from classing this as a 'good article' as a whole. I very much look forward to granting this a well earned yes vote when it has been more thoroughly fleshed out. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles

  • Date of Nomination — December 7th, 2013
  • Description — A pre-spaceflight alien civilization humanity encounters before the Covenant, but plays a small enough role that their existence would not create massive problems with canon.
  • Why — Now that it's up to the two-image minimum, Leo's most recent effort has certainly made it complete enough to fit standards. History, biology, and culture of the species have all been well-fleshed-out, and I still can't get over the style of the references.

  2. Support Support — I can't say the concept itself thrills me, as I'm traditionally against fan made species and general and this one is well, in and of itself special. That being said it is a well written article that fulfills the requirements. Actene:[Just trying to survive]

  • Article Name — M324 Self-Propelled Artillery
  • Writer — Lieutenant Davis
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — June 11th, 2013
  • Date of Nomination — December 10th, 2013
  • Description — A tank developed by the UNSC post-war to replace the dated Cobra.
  • Why — This article surprised me, as I hadn't seen it until it was at its current length. Usually I find technical articles long and tedious, but this one manages to have a pleasant organization with many sub-headers and broken-up paragraphs instead of textwalls filled with abbreviations and numbers. Its history has interesting tie-ins as well to current canon events, mostly with the Infinity and also with the Chalybs Defense Solutions rebuilding as a company after the war. Image and length requirements met, I'm for it.

  • Article Name — Rat Pack

  • Nominator — Actene
  • Date of Creation — January 10th, 2011
  • Description —A gang of child soldiers who fought during the Second Mamore Insurrection; central to the development of Simon-G294.
  • Why — I don't want to make a habit of nominating my own articles, but I make an exception here. Like its subject material, this article is easily overlooked amidst a sea of much grander characters and concepts, yet the work I put into it developing each member as an individual rather than a statistic easily matches what I've put into any one of my major character articles. Every time I consider cutting the lengthy Mamore backstory out of Simon's article in the name of a more fluid read, this article is what convinces me to keep it in.
  • Status — Granted GA status.

Voting

  1. Support Support — As per my nomination. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  2. Support Support — Most certainly agreed. While we've seen various pieces of the rebellion on Mamore through rewritten drafts and flashbacks in Actene's work, this article is probably what makes it hit home the most, because of each individual member's prior losses and ultimate demise. That Damn Sniper 08:56, December 17, 2013 (UTC)

  • Description — An Unggoy who made his way as a lowly serf in the Covenant during the Human-Covenant War, surviving the wrath of his Sangheili overlords and slowly advancing in status over time.
  • Why — One of only a handful of Unggoy articles on the site, Samcha is both an interesting character in his own right and a good take on the Unggoy's position at the bottom of the Covenant totem pole.

  1. Support Support — As per my nomination.
  2.

  • Date of Nomination — January 30, 2014
  • Description — A very interesting tech article about an aircraft meant to compete with the iconic Longsword. While performing well against human insurgents, it lacks in engagements with the Covenant, and is thus retired, only to be used by the same insurgents it was used against. It also almost won an Annual Award, which I think means it can at least win Good Article.

  1. Support Support — As per the nomination and the addition of an additional image to bring the article in line with the requirements. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  2. Support Support — It's thought out, it's detailed, and makes itself relevant to current Halo events through Venezia. I also like that Lancer's made it inferior to the canon Longsword, in keeping with the long-held idea that Insurrectionist forces are at a huge disadvantage against UNSC armies, while still being useful by being the vector for rebel air attacks when opportunities present themselves, in addition to holding their own when there's a highly-skilled pilot character in the cockpit. That Damn Sniper 04:41, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
  3. Support Support — As per the above. It's an interesting read with a lot of effort put in by Lancer to make it a canon-friendly aircraft used by his rebels. Great job here. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man

The article could very well be on its way to a GA status, but information articles have a two image minimum. Give it an extra image or few for bonus points, and we'll look over it again shortly.

As a follow up to Sniper's comment, as I realize it's probably hard to get multiple images of the same craft, you could throw in an image of someone who was a key part of the fighter's design process, or someone in a pilot outfit who could be one of the UNSC personnel manning it, or maybe a generic picture of a factory where the fighter might have been made. Just about anything can fit if you provide a quick reason for it.

  • Date of Nomination — February 2, 2014
  • Description — An article that details one of the many rebellions witnessed in the history of the Covenant, led by the strategically gifted Kyrin 'Forus and was prominent enough to launch the Covenant into a new age.
  • Why — I believe that since the Grey Rebellion took place in a time period of the Covenants' history where there's virtually no canon, it could easily fit right into the history of the two millennium or so old hegemony. I think that (for a first timer at least) that the battles and conflicts that took place are realistically written, and while I haven't written much for the characters in their own articles, they're also believable (to a point). As someone very new to the Halo Fanon scene, I'd like to think I've done a semi-decent job.
  • Status — Nomination failed.

  1. Oppose Oppose — This is a great concept with a cast of good characters and a lot of effort put into creating a hub conflict around which a lot of smaller articles can center. I would really like to see this achieve GA status, but as it stands now I can't support the nomination just yet. A few grammar mistakes show throughout the piece and the short text blocks (most are only about two or three sentences) make bits of the article seem rushed or too short, which is a shame because there are a lot of great details to be found within the text. I suggest going over the article and carefully proofreading it while also condensing some of the paragraphs together to create a more solid-looking article. The potential for GA is definitely there, it just needs a bit more honing in order to shine through completely. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  2. Oppose Oppose — It is indeed a fantastic article for a user with less than a month under his belt, but the article does have its problems. The need for more robust paragraphs is forgivable to me, but some sections just need more content before it's a Good Article. For instance, the Liberation of Balaho outlines a plan and begins to go through how the plan was executed, but doesn't seem complete yet. Another flaw to me is that the article can't quite decide if it's a unit or an event. There are both types of infoboxes, but what really perplexes me is the Notable Individuals section; it includes the High Prophetess of Reconciliation, but she was not a member of the rebellion, so it seems more like an event article. The combination is really neat in some ways, but its organization needs to be a little bit changed before it acquires GA standing. But if this is what HoratioWinters can accomplish in one month, I'm eager to see what he can do given a year so long as he sticks around. That Damn Sniper 21:01, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
  3. Support Support — In my opinion, this is a well written, detailed and cohesive article that absolutely qualifies for GA status. Far lesser articles have been granted the Good Article badge. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles
  4. Oppose Oppose — I think this article was a decent choice for an FotM nomination, but I don't feel like it's quite up to scratch for GA in its current state. It's a pretty good start and is definitely a promising article, though. I may get back to nominating this if it's expanded on in the future. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email

Jackson-A104

  • Article Name — Jackson-A104
  • Writer — Nanosoldier
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — April 2nd, 2011
  • Date of Nomination — February 2nd, 2013
  • Description — An Alpha Company SPARTAN-III whom leads a Noble-like team, explaining his absence in Operation: PROMETHEUS, and goes on to live and serve for decades into the post-war.
  • Why — Article is quite extensive and incorporates an impressive variety of images, including live-actors, color-modified screenshots, and even a custom candidate record. There is a conversation excerpt which takes up quite a bit of length, but far exceeds minimum even without it, and it adds further variety to the media used in the article.
  • Status — Granted GA status.

  1. Support Support — As per nomination, though on a personal note I would like to see the news of Operation: PROMETHEUS affecting him somewhat as long as he escapes it. That Damn Sniper 19:35, February 2, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — Jackson was an article that I've been meaning to nominate for a while now. It's a great piece of work. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  3. Support Support — A well written, interesting and visually appealing SPARTAN article. Only thing I don't particularly like is the fourth wall-smashing reference to parallel universes, but that's a very minor point. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles
  4. Support Support — Jackson has definitely been an article that Nano has worked very hard on for a long time. Now that its quality has been polished to a tee, I'd be happy to support this article for GA. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email

  • Date of Nomination — February 2nd, 2014
  • Description — A UNSC Marine officer who later serves in the 105th Shock Troops Division until his death in 2549.
  • Why — A well written article that ties in well with a canon expansion by Sona.
  • Status — Granted GA status.

  1. Support Support — I very much enjoyed reading this original and detailed article, topped off with good use of images. I would recommend a proof-read though, as on occasion the article mentions Corellia rather than Coral. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles
  2. Support Support — Stalker and I have had long time plans with this character and my McKay article, and it's nice to see that he's working to build up the article into a good one. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  3. Support Support — It's definitely got enough content of high enough quality to make a Good Article. A couple personal suggestions, I usually dislike using an image of a canon character like Madsen for another fanon character. While it's not impossible for two people to look alike, it's just odd when it happens in fiction. Also, Reaver joining the military to be with his friend seems a bit of a stretch because it's a life-changing decision. If he had some sort of crush on her at the time, which wore off while he was on Kerkobe considering leaving the military, that'd make it more believable to me. That Damn Sniper 20:39, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
  4. Support Support — I'm surprised I overlooked this nomination, so now that I've got to it there's not much left to say. A few of the paragraphs could benefit from either being joined together or expanded upon; I hope this nomination provides the encouragement to continue working on the article, as the personality section should definitely be written as well. That being said, it's a strong article that is worthy of GA status. Actene:[Just trying to survive]

  • Status — Granted GA status

  1. Support Support — There's still a bit of polishing and details to straighten out, but I've put a lot of work into it and was happy to be able to take the construction tab off one of my articles for once. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  2. Support Support — Yes. Emphatically. At first, I thought the name of the article sounded like a bit of an audacious concept, even for Actene to be able to pull off, but it turns out the event is the result of a tragic accident from a risky mission. Also happens to fit GA requirements. That Damn Sniper 19:07, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
  3. Support Support — This is one of Actene's more consistent efforts in article-writing, and it certainly does not disappoint. 54px-Zealot.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs Email
  4. Support Support — An excellent article that has been greatly improved with each edit. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  5. Support Support — I was initially skeptical that the concept could be pulled off believably, but Actene has managed this and more. Thoroughly deserving of recognition. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles

  • Description — A UNSC warship class in service during the Insurrection, Human-Covenant War, and Swarm War.

  1. Support Support — As as per nomination. That Damn Sniper 04:30, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — It's well-written and expertly done. There are one or two redlinks on the article at the moment, but nothing that detracts from this article's overall quality. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man
  3. Support Support — I very much enjoyed writing it, and I'd consider it my flagship article, but it casts a long shadow over my subsequent work. In the two years since I completed it, nothing else I've written has even come close. Swarm War Icon2 Athena32 - talk | contribs | email | articles
  4. Neutral Neutral — I very much want to support the nomination of what is arguably the best ship article on the site, but I can't give the go-ahead until a few red links are removed as this remains a part of the requirements for GA. Actene:[Just trying to survive]

Russell-041

  • Article Name — Russell-041
  • Writer — The Pale Kestrl
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — July 28, 2013
  • Date of Nomination — March 30th, 2013
  • Description — An original SPARTAN-II character which treats the Human-Covenant War
  • Why — Survival of the Fittest's submissions also serve to draw our attention to the character articles which users are most proud of within their individual pantheons, and Russell's been recognized before in FotM for being a new flagship SPARTAN-II character, like the Leonidans of old and Marco-025, Bailey-132, or Colin-142. It does have a long way to go - I think Kestrl could enlist the help of someone to read it through and fix a number of minor grammatical errors, and I anticipate a number of suggestions will come from the panel for small changes to improve it, but that's exactly why I think it needs to be viewed - it's an article with plenty of quality content, which could seriously benefit from some feedback by the panel reading through it even if it doesn't attain GA status its first time around.

  1. Neutral Neutral — Pending at least a grammatical proofread. Things like sentences without a subject, and "Halsay" replaced with "Halsey". Have you thought about having Russell being one of those interviewed by one of Halsey's subordinates rather than she herself, since Halsey only handled the candidates in Sector Four? That Damn Sniper 19:16, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Oppose Oppose — Nothing is wrong with the article per se; there's some good characterization and some interesting stuff here. As with Sniper, I agree that it should be proofread a few times in order to clear out some awkward sentences and maybe make a few formatting changes before it's ready for GA. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  3. Oppose Oppose — It's great so far, but could really do with some more work to improve its quality further. Just some proofreading and additions here and there will have it ready for GA in no time. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man

Isaac-039

  • Article Name — Isaac-039
  • Writer — Ahalosniper
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — January 7th, 2011
  • Date of Nomination — March 30th, 2014
  • Description — An expansion of a minor SPARTAN-II detailing everything from childhood and training to a confirmed death during the Fall of Reach.
  • Why — Before I rewrote Vinh, I rewrote Isaac so his article would not be in some sort of pitiful half-finished state, and at last he's cast off the Under Construction template. At some points, I fear he may be a truncated duplicate of Vinh, but I assure you that they were written separately, even if they do cover the same events. My point in nominating this article is to say that it is fine to nominate your own articles to GA, because there may be articles of in your own category that you know is worthy of consideration, but are waiting eternally for someone to notice it and go through the trouble of writing a nomination. Enough dawdling! Let the panel see it so it can be approved or given the constructive criticism needed to reach that point, so your work can be recognized.

  1. Support Support — The nomination says it all, really. It's hard to write a full article for supporting characters, particularly when you've already covered them in the main character's article, but Sniper's pulled it off with a good read that makes for an excellent blend of action reports and character development. Actene:[Just trying to survive]
  2. Support Support — I've always liked these canon expansion articles; it's a great piece of work for one of the many underappreciated SPARTAN-II's characters in the Haloverse. Your friendly neighbourhood Halo Man

  • I'll abstain from voting for now, because if it does come off to readers as a duplicate, I don't want to be nominating myself for two awards for the same work. If the other four judges allow it, so it shall be. That Damn Sniper 19:16, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
