  • Writer — CommanderTony
  • Nominator — CommanderTony
  • Date of Creation — April 27th, 2010
  • Date of Nomination — June 9th, 2010
  • Description — Commander Carter M. Christiansen is a Human senior officer of the UNSC Navy during the Great War. He was a SPARTAN-III Commando and the commanding officer of BETA-5 Alpha Company and Noble Team throughout the war, leading special warfare missions all across the Milky Way galaxy.

  • Why — Though I feel like i've done a great job creating the early life and awards & decorations for NOBLE ONE and hoping this article would serve as a model for those wanting to do character and/or canon expansions, I mainly nominated this article to see how our panel judges use their new position as a member of the project.
  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

  1. Support Support —Great article with a ton of information about the early life on one of the Halo franchise's next hit characters. While not finished, nor is it closed to completion, the author has nonetheless made a expansion article seeming worthy of recognition as the canon background for Carter-A259. CT Sig small
  2. Support Support — Despite the rather... egocentric nomination above, I must concur. This article is extremely well written - definitely at least FotM status - and is most definitely a good article. Hopefully the author can complete their creation before the Annual Fan Fiction Awards. -- Sergeant Major Arnold Lewis, UNSC Naval Special Warfare Development Group[COM]
  3. Support Support — As per the above posts. This article is a creative expansion of a character with almost no canon backstory (so far), and while the "Childhood and family" section of the character's biography requires some stretching of the imagination, the rest of the given history is very interesting and well written. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support Support — As per above. The article fits all the requirements, is of high writing quality, and is a very imaginitive take on the character. It has high detail and great flow. Like Johnson said, egocentric, but still excellent. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  5. Support Support — So, apparently we can nominate our own articles? Or is this the sample nomination? Bah, either way... good article, no matter how you look at it. SPARTAN-091[Bureau] TemplarBlaze [Talk]

  • Description — a user-created upgrade to the prolific Halo-era Orbital Drop Shock Trooper armor kit, showcasing several upgrades that follow a logical path after the end of the Human-Covenant War.
  • Why — This article deserves the honor of "Good Article" for several reasons.

Being one not too inclined towards equipment and technology articles myself, I'm just that much more impressed when someone else manages to pull off a good one. Now let's start scouring the wiki for articles by non-committee users. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  5. Support Support — As per the above posters. The article is of good length, is highly detailed, had good grammar and spelling, makes good use of pictures, and basically does all of the neccessary things right. Lets get some non panel judge articles now. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//

Cassandra-075

  • Article Name — Cassandra-075
  • Writer — Matt-256
  • Nominator — Actene
  • Date of Creation — September 12, 2009
  • Date of Nomination — June 09, 2010
  • Description — A user-created expansion of the canon Cassandra-075, who had a cameo letter in the Conversations From the Universe booklet included in the Halo 2 Limited Edition.
  • Why — The third canon-expansion article in a row, I'm afraid, but it's a very creative example of a user taking a canon character who manages to have almost no information known about her and turn it into a fleshed out article. I'll be the first to come out and state that there are a few grammar/spelling/word format problems embedded in the text which should be proofread and corrected, but the actual story that's conveyed is very creative, especially in the way it connects the character with both canon and fan-made characters. It's the first canon-expansion character I've seen to have a fleshed-out relationship with a completely fan-made article, and to me that's the best sign of the linkage between canon and fanon.

One thing I've failed to find in the Good Article rules is the number of supporting votes an article needs in order to be confirmed as a Good Article. So far, the only articles to have been confirmed are the ones that received no opposing votes at all. In the meantime, there are a few nominated articles that have received a majority (three votes) support from the panel but remain unconfirmed. Does the panel need to be unanimous in its support of the article, or have these just been disregarded up till now?

  • Description — The article is a history of the Light Cruiser UNSC Las Vegas, a survivor of the Human-Covneant War, and later a monument to the Human-Covenant War.
  • Why — This article has been fantastically done, and the writer has received a notable lack of attention writing it. It is also the only UNSC vessel voted as the Best Starship of 2009 in the Second Annual Halo Fan Fiction Wikia Awards.

  1. Support Support — One of my favorite articles [that nobody else cares to remember about]. Good detail, original artwork, and he's got the credentials to back it up as an excellent Good Article candidate.

  1. Support Support — As per nomination. Article is of high quality, fits all of the prerequisites, and is fully deserving of the Good Article award. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  2. Support Support — For one thing, I did list it as one of my examples of a Good Article candidate when I submitted my name for this panel, and for another this article has just blown me away since I first saw it, which (to the best of my memory) wasn't long after I joined this site to begin with. Great concept (created before Bungie breathed a word about H3:ODST), great details, and an all around great article. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together

  • Writer — Another Poetic Spartan
  • Nominator — Another Poetic Spartan
  • Date of Creation — June 23rd, 2009
  • Date of Nomination — June 9th, 2010
  • Description — This article features the history of SPARTAN-057, a person who fought in the Human-Covenant War and was able to survive. Later on, he would participate in several exploration missions but on his last journey, he mysteriously disappeared, only to be found several decades later. After being rediscovered, he would discover that the UNSC was in a middle of a war with a foreign race.
  • Why — This article is extremely well done as well yet it has largely been ignored by the community. Although it doesn't have any nominations, the user wishes it to be recognized as considerable time has been put into it. Sadly, I would like to note that the article is not finished the development of the character's personality and story is ongoing.

  1. Oppose Oppose — Just temporarily... There are a few spelling and grammar errors on the page and a few incomplete sections. The introduction is really nice, but rather long, and could be incorporated into the body of the article better. Also, there's an incomplete quote template down there at the very bottom. Fix those things, which is not too hard, and you have my support. SPARTAN-091[Bureau] TemplarBlaze [Talk]
  2. Oppose Oppose — From the feedback I've received from the mixed response to my last nomination, I've concluded that spelling and grammar should be a key factor in determining an article's eligibility for this award. I'm not of the opinion that it should be fully completed before being nominated, so just fix the spelling/grammar/formatting issues and you've got my vote. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Oppose Oppose — As per above. It's a strong article, but the spelling and grammar needs work and a significant section is incomplete. Finish up the article, make the necessary changes, and I'll reconsider. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  4. Oppose Oppose — As per the others above. Needs work in the areas of: spelling and grammar and the article's appearance. I suggest you move A LOT of the article's introduction into the article rather than keep it above the table of contents. CT Sig small

  • Writer — Athena32

  • Date of Nomination — June 12, 2010
  • Description — An article about the chief foe in the author's fanon, The Swarm, a violent and unrelenting extragalactic insectoid species.
  • Why — Despite being around for over a year, it is only in the last few days that I've begun fleshing out what is one of the most integral articles to my universe. The page is one of my best in terms of writing quality and I'm rather pleased with the transformation under which the article has gone in a short period of time. I'm not fully comfortable with self-nominating but I know that the page would otherwise be overlooked (there are 15,000 other articles on this site).
  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

Voting

  1. Support Support — Like Athena stated in the behind the scenes section of the article, "The Swarm" is clearly influenced by multiple science fiction entities...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Good fleshed-out content and nothing too much to scare away people with short-attention spans. Only thing i'd recommend the author does would be to create a somewhat larger introduction and add a couple more images. CT Sig small
  2. Support Support — This one had somehow slipped under my radar till now, but and I'm severly dissapointed I hadn't noticed it yet. It's a great article, with interesting, fleshed out contact, good spelling and grammar, and enough images to qualify. Though more images would be great, I think it's still a very strong candidate for good article status. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  3. Support Support — Saw this one in the works, and I really liked it then. It's only gotten better. I have one thing to point out, though, and that is that this article should be the standard of how to write a race inspired by other series. Not direct copying and pasting, but an original concept drawn from the roots of the others. Bravo Zulu, Athena. SPARTAN-091[Bureau] TemplarBlaze [Talk]
  4. Support Support —While somewhat lacking in pictures, this article more than makes up for this by being well written and thought out. Having to rely on walls of text without pictures to support an article is hard, but the author pulls it off with very few errors (the only legitimate ones I could find were really just regional differences in how certain words are spelled). Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  5. Support Support — As per the others. This is how you use an inspiration from another series (television, video game, book) and make it your own. -- Sergeant Major Arnold Lewis, UNSC Naval Special Warfare Development Group[COM] 06:46, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

He was much more than a SPARTAN-I however, he had been augmented by a forerunner artifact. As insurrectionist boarded his ship, he froze himself in a cryopod, only to be discovered sixty years later. He would go on to discover the aft section of the Dawn along with John-117 and Cortana.

Thanks for your support! I'm planning on improving and expanding on this article in the future as my stories reveal more about Felix. They'll probably address the concerns you've had about the article.

AJ: I'm not done unveiling everything concerning Felix's involvement in ORION. Duties and Desires will cover that.

They are comprised of multiple echelons with various specialities, but mainly focus on the Insurrectionist threat during the post-HCW era.

  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

  1. Support Support — Although the idea and content behind the article is great, it seems like the author/nominator waited until the article just barely made it over the 15k byte mark before nominating it. The only thing I suggest is that you flesh out the article far more, especially in the Echelons, Operations, and Technology sections, where the latter two have more pictures and tables than actual content. I'm going to give my support, but I do recommend that you add more content as per my reasoning above. CT Sig small
  2. Support Support — Like Tony said, it seems like it could use some more content, but I still feel it is a good candidate. It has a well written backstory and some unique pictures, and is very well organized. Flow is interrupted in some areas by templates, but that's more of a personal preference thing and doesn't really factor into consideration. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//

  3. Support Support — FOTM winners really speak for themselves in cases like this. Personally, this article was what made me want to write longer articles in the first place, so it has my full support. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Oppose Oppose — While it has been accepted as a Fanon of the Month character and is a great read, there are a few things i'd like to see changed prior to it earning Good Article status. It seems WAY too much like a file i'd pull off of a UNSC database chronicling the life of Riker from every single battle. Things i'd change are the removal and condensing of many of the "battle/operation" sections into a few groups so the table of contents isn't longer than most articles on the wiki. Another thing that, in my opinion should go, is the equipment section; this is something I absolutely despise on most articles on the wiki, and especially those from the active Necros writers. It makes the article seem more and more like a trading card than an actual biography piece and does more damage concerning keeping the user engaged in reading. The strength and weakness sections aren't needed at all, and should be explained throughout the biography section rather than it's own separate space. Also, the mental report and relationship section doesn't need to be that long. Lastly, the mission listing template is probably the only worthless thing that I can see on the article, like I stated for the strength/weakness section, it should be explained throughout the biography in a summarized fashion. While there are many things I find that need to be changed on the article, it's content nonetheless inform me that you put a lot of work into the page, though I would appreciate you considering the above and/or taking my advice from the reasons I stated in the vote above. CT Sig small
  5. Oppose Oppose — While I feel that it is most likely one of the strongest articles on the site, I cannot recomend this for Good Article status. While the pictures, length, and link requirements are easily satisifed, there are substantial parts of the article unfinished. While I have no problems with the length of the battles (I myself used this practice on my absurdly long Connor-338 article) and have no issues with the weapon and/or mental report, I feel that the unfinished sections really bog the article down. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//

Support Support — A good article that I intend to read in the future, though it's a bit on the side of a "story character" article where the contents seem to be taken directly out of a book rather than a summary of the characters' life. Nothing serious though, you still have my approval. CT Sig small
  5. Oppose Oppose — While the article is very professional and is a great piece of creative writing, with excellent use of templates, pictures, and quotes, i don't feel it is ready for good article status. There is a significant section of the article still unfinished, and I feel this should be filled in before it is ready. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//

  • Article Name — Scott Brooks
  • Writer — SPARTAN-118 and Maslab
  • Nominator — SPARTAN-118
  • Date of Creation — November 28, 2009
  • Date of Nomination — July 13, 2010
  • Description — The biography of one of the most prominent admirals during the Necros war. It discribes the early life, and the naval career of Vice Admiral Scott Brooks, UNSCN.
  • Why — It uses a picture of Chester Nimitz, thats why! But seriously, it's a nice biography, combined with a pair of pictures. Grammars good, and I am adding a quote now to make it eligible. Definitely an example of how to write articles on high-ranking flag officers.
  • Comments — As the Necros war slowly grows larger, more of his war career will be added. Until then, though, any ideas are stuck in limbo. Darn the slowness of Necros.
  • Status — Nomination closed.

  1. Oppose Oppose — I'm liking that you used Fleet Admiral Nimitz as the infobox picture, though unfortunately, that's the limit to what I actually like about the article. Though it does seem to have some potential, i'd very much like you to consider the following recommendations. The biography section is a bit too small to earn Good Article status, add the "early life" section into the military career section (then renaming it "Biography"), splitting parts of the military career section into particular parts of his life, and then expanding on each and every "part". The "assignments" section should be condensed from it's current state by removing all of the editable rank sections, placing a template onto the page and listing each assignment, then listing the rank and dates by each assignment. You may also want to expand on the personality section, or remove it entirely. Anyways, good luck! CT Sig small
  2. Oppose Oppose — I'd like to start off by saying the article is very well done, looking quite professional and accented by strong image choice. However, like CT, I feel the length of the article is a real detriment. I feel that the article is simply to short in it's current incarnation to warrant good article status. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  3. Oppose Oppose — As per CT and 501. I'd suggest either clearing some non-RP Necros events with Ajax and then incorporating them in or just inventing non-Necros events to make the biography section a little more interesting. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together

  • Description — An article about the Invincible-class, a warship type employing a novel all-missile main armament and several innovative design features.
  • Why — An in-depth and superbly written article, definitely deserving of recognition as a Good Article.
  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

  1. Support Support — A pretty good starship article full with complete and detailed descriptions of main parts of the ship class including pictures :). Only thing i'd recommend the authors doing is placing the "History" above the "Description" section. CT Sig small
  2. Support Support — I feel this is an excellent example of an article deserving good article status. Good length, interesting pictures, lots of links, and no unfinished sections make it a great candidate. In addition, reading through the article, it has strong writing and excellent flow, making it a real pleasure to read. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  3. Support Support — Ship articles aren't really my forte; I tend to find walls of text regarding tech details as tiresome as some users find the lengthy character articles myself and others write. However, there's no discernible spelling or grammar issues so I can't find anything of value to complain about. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support Support — Dudes, the word "novel" was deployed in the nomination reason. It must be good. In all seriousness, though, this deserves some recognition. SPARTAN-091[Bureau] TemplarBlaze [Talk]

MA5 rifle

  • Article Name — MA5 rifle
  • Writer — The All-knowing Sith'ari
  • Nominator — CommanderTony
  • Date of Creation — June 20th, 2010
  • Date of Nomination — July 14th, 2010
  • Description — The MA5 is a family of assault rifles in use with the UNSC Defence Force. The MA5 rifle fires the 7.62MM cartridge and can produce massive wounding and hydrostatic shock effects when the bullet impacts at high velocity and yaws in tissue leading to fragmentation and rapid transfer of energy. However, terminal effects can be unimpressive when the bullet fails to yaw or fragment in tissue.
  • Why — While one of the more "Wikipedia-ish" articles on Halo Fanon, it nonetheless represents what others and myself look for in a good article concerning equipment used by the various factions of the Halo universe. Features a good history section, a well detailed "variant" section, and a very description design section.
  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

  1. Support Support — As per my statement in "Why" above. CT Sig small
  2. Support Support — While the article is slightly short for my tastes and has whole sections which seem almost copy pasted from wikipedia, I feel that it is still a good contender for good article status. Its fully finished, has an in depth description, and a strong writing quality. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  3. Support Support — While I'm beginning to grow a little weary of "canon expansion" articles, there's really nothing wrong with the article to prevent it from being accepted as a Good Article. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support Support — Kinda like my M56S, but more words in bigger sections. Still good, though, if a tad "tl;dr". SPARTAN-091[Bureau] TemplarBlaze [Talk]

  • Description — The original ONI SPARTAN, Jared-091 is a sniper/reconnaissance expert that was kidnapped by the Office during the augmentation phase and spirited away. He has a long career of black operations and less-than-honorable deployments against numerous enemies, both Human and Covenant.
  • Why — Not that I'm big on ego, but I actually really want someone (or someones) to run over this with a fine-tooth comb to make sure it's good. This guy was one of Halo Fanon's founding SPARTAN articles, not to mention one of the oldest articles on the site period, and I feel that over 300 or so edits renders this a good article. Plus, he won FoTM and I want to collect another Era icon.

  1. Support Support — I'm in an interesting predicament: I can either say that there's nothing that needs to be said about this article or I can spend ten minutes typing up everything I like about it. The only things I can really say against it are the at the grammar is a little awkward here and there and that a few of the missions don't really seem to do much more than flesh out his resume. Other than that, I think this article is pretty much what just about every character article should aspire to be like. I've been inspired by this article, and I'm sure lots of other users have been as well. This article is one of my favorite on-site characters and I'm surprised it hasn't been nominated until now.

  • Article Name — Benjamin Dansen
  • Writer — Ahalosniper
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — January 29th, 2010
  • Date of Nomination — August 3rd, 2010
  • Description — Joining the ODSTs after his parents were killed in the Fall of Reach, Dansen would be put to the test several times in his first days of active duty alone. Showing uncommon valor and perhaps a bit of luck, he survived missions in the years after that by rights should have killed him. He would go on to lead a company of troopers til the turn of the century and perhaps beyond.
  • Why — I'm a little unsure of my ability to create a properly formatted article, and my recent edits to his page were in an attempt to meet Good Article guidelines. If he meets standards, I hope I've created something original enough to be called good. If a picture of him out-of-armor is preferred, I hope to use Mass Effect sometime soon to get a model for the character.
  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

  1. Support Support — While i'm giving it a support, there's a number of things i'd like to see changed prior to it becoming a Good Article. Namely, some of the section titles concerning major events in his life and career with the UNSC Marine Corps. Secondly, the Covenant species names should largely be switched to their actual names except when concerning quotes. Last off, there is a hell of a lot of "ODST's" in that biography, i'd suggest you try some alternate names instead such as "Marine", "Troopers", and "Helljumpers". CT Sig small
  2. Support Support — I'm going to support this, but I suggest you look over what you've got written in the article. Apart from the things Tony already pointed out, there are a couple of spelling errors within the text that should be fixed. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Support Support — As per Tony and Actene. SPARTAN-091[Bureau] TemplarBlaze [Talk]
  4. Support Support — It's a little short for my tastes, but it has good content and an interesting story.

I've changed the section titles to ones more suited to the operations he is taking part in, and alien race names changed, save once to avoid being repetitive. ODST has also been changed in several places. However, could you point out where I've made spelling and/or grammer mistakes that annoy you?

Since it'd be annoying on both of our parts for me to just list out the handful of misspellings I found (there weren't that many, or I wouldn't have supported the nomination), I suggest just copy and pasting the whole article onto a word processor, ignoring the various words it will say are misspelled just because it doesn't know them, and correct the ones that are legitimately misspelled. It shouldn't take any longer than five minutes at the most.

  • Writer — Actene
  • Nominator — Actene
  • Date of Creation — October 2nd, 2008
  • Date of Nomination — August 5th, 2010
  • Description — Infamous amongst his comrades for being both one of the worst-performing members of Gamma Company and for being the first SPARTAN-III to knowingly betray the UNSC, Simon-G294 is a conflicted traitor who ultimately seeks and wants little more than his own survival.
  • Why — My reasons for nominating this article are pretty much identical to 091's for his own article. This was my first character on the wiki, and since then I've grown very fond of him. He's progressed a lot since I first created him, and though I'm not as fond of the long-article style that most of his page is in as I was a couple months ago, I still think it conveys his story fairly well. So yeah, like 091 I want someone to look this over to make sure it's good, and an extra Era-icon would be a nice addition to the collection I've got at the top of this article's page.

  1. Support Support — Since I'm guessing those of us on the panel aren't supposed to refrain from voting, I'm going to vote as per my nomination. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  2. Support Support — As Actene said of my article, this is definitely in my Top 5. There are a few unfinished sections that could likely be merged together with others or fleshed out, but overall this article has plenty of illustrative pictures and grammatically-correct writing. Not only that, but it's an enjoyable read. Actene really worked his character's psyche into the article, so it almost seems like this article was written by a biographer listening to Simon tell his story.

Great candidate for good article. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//

  1. Support Support — It does seem like I'm becomming a bit of a yes man, but I blame it on all of the nominators for picking such good articles. This has got to be one of my favorite new articles on the site, and it has been one of my major inspirations in recent times. Despite a few minor problems I have with it, includng it's layout being somewhat confusing and it's visual style a little difficult to read, I think it's strengths make up for it.

  • Status — Nomination closed until article meets standards.

Voting

  1. Oppose Oppose — I'm very close to approving this article, because there are several things I like about it. However, there are just a few too many problems with it. I believe that character articles should both summarize their character's personality in a "Personality" section while also reflecting that summary over the course of the whole article. While this article does this in a couple places, there are so many other sections that don't that the ones that do show character come off as somewhat forced. I'd also consider adding some more personality quirks where they'd be relevant as well; as it is, I really can't find anything in here that makes the character particularly interesting or memorable. You don't have to make him a psycho or anything else extreme, but just give him some more facets to his character. Give him some good habits and some bad habits, stuff that fleshes him out and makes him more "real." I hate to come down too hard on this, but this is a real pet peeve of mine with a lot of articles on the wiki. My advice is to flesh out the character, both in your head and the Personality section, and then go through the History section and write that fleshing out into the heart of the article. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  2. Oppose Oppose — As per Actene. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  3. Oppose Oppose — As per Actene, however, i'd like to see a bit more expanded on his Early Life and also his time with the UNSC-AF during the Insurrection. Also, it would be wise to turn a lot of the content into more proper paragraphs. CT Sig small

  • Why — I'll admit that I'm partially motivated to nominate an article in order to stimulate the Good Article process, but this, in my opinion, is an article that should have been nominated months ago. It's a lot shorter than most veteran character articles on the site, but its brevity just makes it an easier read and it isn't condensed enough that it demands expansion. The content itself is well thought out and the layout is one of the best I've seen in a character article. Its personality section could use some expansion, but that is no reason that it shouldn't be named a Good Article.

M45A Compact Ranged Weapon System

  • Article Name — M45A sniper rifle
  • Writer — Athena32
  • Nominator — Athena32
  • Date of Creation — July 10, 2010
  • Date of Nomination — August 12, 2010
  • Description — The M45A was a compact, long range weapon intended to fulfil a long-range anti-personnel role, essentially a cross between a battle rifle and a dedicated sniper rifle, with the ability to act as either in combat. The M45A utilised the 11.4x60mm round, which filled the capability void between the lighter 9.22x55mm and larger 12.5x77mm rounds.

  • Status — Earned Good Article status.

  1. Support Support — I was a little hesitant on this one, but in the end, I think it meets the neccessary standards. The article is in depth and detailed, with good conventions, and interesting pictures & quotes. Though I feel it could be improved with "strengths and weaknesses" section, to combat any hints of godmodding, I think it still qualifies for good article status. //Your screams blacken my soul// //I am shadow, I am death// //I am alone in the dark, but not afraid//
  2. Support Support — As per 501. While I can't say I could imagine such a weapon being added to the canon Halo arsenal, its description is well-thought out enough and the images are so highly detailed that I could imagine it being a real-world or near-future weapon. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Support Support — Considering he let me use the M45A for my CA7 carbine article, there's no way I can't vote in support. Great writing and content, as well as pleasing graphics on the page! CT Sig small

Comments

I think I'll remove the automatic function and the HMG variant with it, just for sanity's sake. In regards to hints of godmodding, for a weapon designed in the 2660s and used well into the 2900s by a supposedly Tier 1 race, I'd go so far as to say that it's decidedly underpowered. As for a strengths and weaknesses section, I'll add that in due course. And thanks for the suggestions. :) A Million Stars StoneGhost - talk | contribs | email | articles
