  • Date of Nomination — May 26, 2011
  • Description — A biography detailing the long life of Marco-025, a SPARTAN-II of Sigma Division.

  • Status — Nomination failed.

  1. Support.png Support — The article has improved a lot since its previous nomination. I personally think it's deserving of GA status. One suggestion though, use quote templates, and try not to clump parts of the article with too many images. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. Oppose.png Oppose — While the content is great, the page formatting is something not to be desired. As well, it felt as if you tried to cram as much in as possible to beef up your article towards the end, especially with the little communique documents. I suggest you turn those into subpages and simply work on beefing up the biography content instead, in addition to reformatting. CT Sig small
  3. Oppose.png Oppose — It's got good length and nice images, but I really can't forgive the many errors littered throughout the text itself. There's quite a few formatting errors (i.e. giving numbers in numeral form rather than spelling them out) that make the article just downright hard and rather unpleasant to read. My advice is to go through and really read the article as an outside observer, then go back and fix what stands out to you. That way people can focus on actually reading what you have to say rather than keep being torn away from the story by bothersome stylistic errors. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support.png Support — Seems to be based on the best examples of SPARTAN articles on the site in terms of layout and content and, while this isn't a bad thing, it doesn't quite make it into that category. Nonetheless, I do think it is worthy of recognition here. A few minor things bug me, however, such as formatting and spelling/grammar; namely number and positioning of images and awkward sentence structure. This was a difficult one but overall I think the article's good qualities redeem it sufficiently. A Million Stars.png StoneGhost - talk | contribs | email | articles
  5. Oppose.png Oppose — As Tony and Actene have stated, the article suffers from formatting issues. As Tony elaborated, you have put a lot of content into this character article, too many I suppose.— subtank (7alk) 00:16, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

I've put the Interviews into a new page, and I'll be continuing work on the biography as soon as I can. I'm also going to try and merge the Mental Report and the Career Service Vitae. -Brodie-001

Sorry, do you mind explaining to me what these formatting errors are, exactly? I'm currently going through the article and making changes in regards to the number problem and updating other things. If I could have some examples it would really help, thanks. -Brodie-001

In my view, it's mainly the organisation of sections. It's a bit messy as it throws content all over the article. I also suggest try using the Quote template for all quotations you placed in the article. :) — subtank (7alk) 00:16, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

  1. Support.png Support — Good article, the detail clearly shows the amount of work Nanosoldier has put into polishing it. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. Oppose.png Oppose — As per Sona, plenty of interesting and rich content in there, not to mention killer visuals. However, the extra content such as dossier materials, communique documents, etc. outshine the biography of the article and overpowers the beauty of a good article. Reformatting the article, beefing up the biography, and writing a longer introductory piece above the table of contents is what you should be working on. Cheers! CT Sig small
  3. Support.png Support — While I agree with Grizzlei that the format leaves a lot to be desired, I've put my approval stamp on articles of lesser quality than this in the past. The different format doesn't exactly work, but it is a nice experiment that deserves recognition for its overall writing quality. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Oppose.png Oppose — While the article is undoubtedly highly impressive visually, the language/writing style used is not without its flaws, and phrasing is awkward in places, with some sentences being too short/long and others needing reformatting. I'm also of the opinion that the opening paragraph should sufficiently summarise the subject of the article, which I don't feel this one does. While I acknowledge that this is a decent article, ultimately I believe written content comes before visual appeal and can't support this nomination; though with a bit more effort I'm sure that would change.

  5. Neutral.png Neutral — In agreement with Athena32, but I think there's more room for growth for the content. Nice work with the presentation, though please close all unclosed tags.

  • Description — A fanmade version of Halo: Reach's iconic Noble Six, who displays the knack and capability of a Spartan but also the raw emotions from a sophisticated human being.
  • Why — Written by one of the most promising newer users of our wiki, Tess-B312 stands as a well-developed character not only in her article but also in the stories Ladylaconia has placed her into. The quality of the article alone shows the commitment and thought that she has placed into writing this. In my honest opinion, I believe this is the best Noble Six article I have seen on the wiki.

  3. Support.png Support — I'd disagree with Grizzlei as far as the introduction goes, as I've always considered long introductions a weakness in my own articles.

  4. Support.png Support — As per the above; I concur that this is one of the best Noble 6 fan expansions on the site, and particularly like the author's writing style. I'm going to state the blatantly obvious and say that finishing incomplete sections would improve it further- I would also otherwise suggest a longer introduction, but seeing as it seems to succinctly summarise the article in its present length, I think this is unnecessary.

Regardless of images, it's an awesome article, and thoroughly deserves GA status. Szepasszony

  2. Support.png Support — I like this article, and I definitely agree that it is worthy of Good Article status. I feel the article would greatly benefit from a longer character service record/biography to bulk out her history, and perhaps an image or two.

  4. Oppose.png Oppose — Perhaps I'm a little more critical because of this concept's close ties to my own character, but I'm in agreement with LOMI here. My main complaint is that the core idea of the article--the rogue S-III element--is missing entirely from the biography. Since that's the real eye catcher, I want to know more about why Sepia turns on her friends and how that whole drama plays out. Aside from that, I'd suggest a couple proofreads of the article to make the sentences flow a bit better, as well as the removal of a couple red links. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  5. Oppose.png Oppose — While the article is well-written enough, it lacks significant areas that I believe would thus qualify it for GA status - further explanations for her actions, more insight (and perhaps logic) to her father's decision, and all in all, more character development beyond the fact that she's a traitorous pyro. I like the concept behind the character - I just don't think the article's developed enough to be a Good Article yet. ONI Seal 1.png Strength through paranoia.

While I'm grateful for the nomination, I agree with the ruling. I've been waiting to expand until after RP:Dwindling Flame concludes, so until then it might be considered a potential GA candidate.

  1. Oppose.png Oppose — I'm very sorry to have to say this, but I truly dislike this article. 'Heavily inspired' is another way of saying 'more or less plagiarised', and I'm uncomfortable with the noticeable similarity between this article and the wikipedia one on the person it is based on (as someone on the IRC points out, the introduction is essentially lifted from wikipedia). Furthermore, the UNSC seems to have changed from 'the USA in space' to the UK, with references to Sandhurst, the Black Watch Regiment, MID, the Parachute Regiment, etc. Not to mention he's born in Scotland, marries a reporter for a London-based newspaper, and dies on Westminister bridge (the universe is bigger than Britain). This is just too British for me, and I'm British myself. And while swords and bows may have worked in World War two, the Nazis weren't using impenetrable alloys and energy shielding. It's essentially the entire concept of the article itself that I have to take issue with. A Million Stars.png StoneGhost - talk | contribs | email | articles

I can understand being too close to the historical person, but "being too British?" That's like me saying I don't like most of the main characters in the Halo series because they're too American. Sith'ari and I have tried to inject a bit of Commonwealth love into our articles to try and balance out against the traditional US influence, but that as a criticism just sounds...weird. Specops306 Autocrat Qur'a 'Morhek 10:48, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

That's a fair enough point, but there still remains the fact of gratuitous red links and the rather glaring detail that the character fights hyper-advanced aliens with a sword and bow as a matter of course. I'm fairly surprised it hasn't been smacked with an Unrealism template by some of our more zealous realists. As this flaw (and yes, I consider it a flaw) is a key part of the article's premise, that alone disqualifies it from GA status in my eyes. If that's fixed, the character can be as British as he wants to be and I'll happily reevaluate it based on its merits (good grammar and structuring are two of the article's strengths). Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together

I'm not defending the article. I was just saying that the British influence sounds like an odd thing to take exception to. Specops306 Autocrat Qur'a 'Morhek 22:15, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

  2. Oppose.png Oppose — This is definitely a well-written article, and well on its way to GA status. However, I can't vote for it for a couple reasons that are very glaring to me. The first is grammar: while above average, there are still several places that need work. On top of this, the articles feel rather incomplete: it's broken down into numerous short, almost stunted sections that could probably be compiled into larger ones for better effect. This is coupled with some missing details, such as Vihn's entry into the program as a major point. Overall, it's very good, but not quite good enough for me to say yes. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner? The Lost Books 21:46, April 3, 2012 (UTC)
  3. Support.png Support — I'm a bit torn on this one, as I can see a few of the spots LOMI is taking issue with and I've always prided myself on holding GA nominees to high grammar standards. However, these spots ultimately don't outweigh the good concept and the genuine effort to convey a story-driven narrative even in the info article format. I'll have to simply suggest a quick authorial proofreading for the grammar issues, as well as a few eyebrow-raising details (personally, I don't see why rebel officers, even in the early Insurrection, would have sabres; a service pistol or rifle would be just as effective a plot device). Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. Support.png Support — While the article could benefit from improvements along LOMI's suggestions, I believe it meets the requirements in its current form.

  1. Support.png Support — So what's the story here? A Sangheili child witnesses the death of his entire family, slaughtered by a Jiralhanae Chieftain and his pack, and as the only survivor, is taken in by an old swordmaster. Now that he's old enough, he feels a desire to find the Chieftain and avenge his kin. Sounds pretty cliché, right? Wrong! If you've read this story as far as I have, you would know that Actene doesn't do cliché; just keep reading until you're about a quarter of the way into the story, and you'll agree with me. But it won't be until near the end that you find out what the real purpose to the story is. But I won't say any more and let you decide. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. Support.png Support — It feels a bit weird to be supporting my own project like this, but there you have it. I spent a year writing this, and my plans for it changed countless times over that period. In that regard, I think some portions, particularly its plodding middle act, are unnecessary and/or rushed. That being said, this was an excellent introduction for a good number of my main and supporting characters into AAO and in that regard it is very much a success.

  2. Oppose.png Oppose — Take a look at the way most articles are formatted here, then run through and break the huge blocks of text into sizable chunks. As per Sona's suggestion, read through the actual writing and do some proofreading to improve the quality of the writing itself. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Oppose.png Oppose — Like the others have said above, definitely a lengthy article, but it needs more work on the formatting and grammar. Keep trying though. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner? The Lost Books 22:27, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

@Actene: Which skin do you use? The article looks fine in Monobook (as far as I know, it is split into paragraphs, unless that's just my screen).--Shade 00:59, April 14, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Support.png Support — The article feels like there could be more content added to it. But what I see right now looks nice. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. Support.png Support — As far as I can see, the only thing keeping this article from being more widely read is the rather down to earth (no pun intended) subject matter, which is a shame since this is so well written. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Oppose.png Oppose — To be honest, it's a rather thought out article that's nice and different. However, I just can't get around the sparse pictures and 'block-o-text' look to the page, which makes reading it very difficult to me. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner?

  4. Support.png Support — Conditional support. Definitely an interesting idea inspired by then-current events, and a subject that's not done all too often on Halo Fanon, nevermind done well. Very interesting and detailed. One thing though, I would definitely say a requirement for GA status is removing references to AJP Taylor. He can't be writing books in 2578 when he died in 1990 :) A Million Stars.png StoneGhost - talk | contribs | email | articles

I'm not sure this article is quite up to standards, but if you say so.

Sergeant Gabriel was inspired by a machinima from a while back. I had planned to make sort of a Halo-ween article of him when the time comes around, having reports of him pop up now and then, especially as the 'Ghost of Onyx.'

Support.png Support — I'll admit, this article's a little hard on the eyes. When I sat down to read it, I found myself getting lost on more than one occasion in a sea of text that was swimming with dates and capitalized operation titles. That being said, when you actually read through it it's a very well thought out article with good canon ties. My one real complaint is the lack of many personal stories within the narrative. As it stands it's a well-written but somewhat dry recounting; this isn't necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but it does keep it on the level of just a good article rather than one I find myself coming back to for inspiration.

Tyraxus Tribe

  • Article Name — Tyraxus Tribe
  • Writer — Ajax 013
  • Nominator — Ahalosniper
  • Date of Creation — August 11th, 2012
  • Date of Nomination — December 29th, 2012
  • Description — The history, culture, and martial strength of a Jiralhanae tribe, detailing everything from its most notable members to its position in the balance of galactic power.
  • Why — I found just about everything in this article cool, from the breakdown of a tribe into clans and packs to details like traditional clothing for people of particular stations. It stands out as a unique approach to an article, reminding me a lot of a role-playing game's campaign setting, and in that way is serving as part of the foundation for Hammer Fall. The only possible faults I could find with the article are a few long paragraphs and a lack of images to help break up the effect, but given the blandness of Reach‘s Brutes and 3‘s offlined file share, it's understandable. Consider images of their equipment from the many linked articles, or its planetary holdings.

  • Writer — Sonasaurus
  • Nominator — Sonasaurus
  • Date of Creation — August 15th, 2009
  • Date of Nomination — January 9, 2013
  • Description — A story on the last days of the old Covenant, told from the perspective of Autel 'Vadam as he begins to make a name for himself among the Sangheili.
  • Why — While I don't normally self-nominate, this is one of my early works on Halo Fanon that I feel never quite got the recognition I wanted it to have. I feel that I've put in quite a substantial effort to completing it and it took a lot of planning to fit this story into the events of Halo 2 and Halo 3 and even introduce several of my own ideas to the canon plotline.

  2. Support.png Support — For the sake of testing the GA requirements and because I haven't enough time right now to give it a properly thoroughly read-through, I'm going to run this one by the numbers. A story article, exceeding 5,000 bytes. It lacks an introduction, but as that requirement stands it seems to have had information articles in mind. It should still apply, however, and I recommend adding a preface in place of an introduction that introduces its writer, expanded universe, and place within its EU in a similar way to the infobox. Feedback template should be above the infobox. Created at least two weeks prior to nomination, very yes. Reading the first chapter, I find no glaring grammatical or spelling issues, and I trust Sona's perfectionism enough to believe this continues throughout the story. No red links, but contains only one image which is in the infobox, not counting the AAO image behind the text. Properly categorized and has no history of breaking canon, in fact retelling it quite well with Thel's trial. While I am in favor of the nomination, I humbly suggest to the panel that our requirements have a few tweak revisions to better accommodate nominated story articles, of which there have been few.

  • Why — Brodie's worked diligently towards completing this over the past few months, and his efforts show with well-written prose, good attention to detail, and a story that manages to connect itself over the timeframe of a decade, with the article including selectively chosen music in every chapter to enhance the reader's experience. As deserving a story as any that have already attained GA status.

  • Why — So maybe Ell needs another award like Halo Fanon needs ten years of bad luck, but this story really stuck out to me in particular. Maybe it's interesting to draw the parallels between John's conscription with another SPARTAN-II's. Maybe I like to amuse myself imagining Jorge as a kid (child's body, adult face, by the way). Or maybe I just like this story. But yeah, it's time to revive this project (again), and after thinking over a potential list of nominees, this was one of the first to pop into my head.

  1. Support.png Support — As much as I dislike voting for myself, I have to follow the advice LOMI once gave 091 about getting off one's own high-horse. I co-authored this with lancer (sorry Minuteman, but that name'll never stick for you) because he'd shown improvement leading up to it, and because he had a genuinely good concept that could help to prove it. Also, I really want Sona to read through this 'cause it might just kill him. XD That Damn Sniper 01:46, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

  3. Support.png Support — I raise one complaint against this article, and it is that I wish this were an original Freelancer character rather than a canon one. The character is so radically different from the one in RvB canon that I actually found it hard to go back and watch him in the older episodes. That being said, this is a character that has stood out as an excellent player, first within the confines of RP and now as an article in and of itself.

  2.

Victoria's page goes a long way towards explaining the origins of Project: FREELANCER, and ties in with the SPARTAN program in ways both professional, with MJOLNIR augmentations and armor used in FREELANCER, and personal, with several ties between Victoria and parts of both factions. I can only hope we see more articles with backgrounds as unique as this in RvB: Revolution and the site as a whole. That Damn Sniper 08:58, August 23, 2013 (UTC)
