Featured Article Nominations

Waddle Doo (April 22nd, 2019 - June 17th, 2019)

A very thorough article about one of the more iconic enemies in the Kirby series. I will be adding more locations tables as time goes on, but I believe this article to be suitable for featuring in its current state. --Fubaka (talk) 02:05, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

  1. Iconic enemy, follows writing guidelines, no improvement tags...I don't see why this can't be featured. -YFJ (talk · edits) 16:32, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
  2. Agree with both supporters now that the tag is gone Pinkyoshifan (talk) 21:23, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Would the "It has been suggested that this page or section be split into" box at the top count as an improvement tag? Pinkyoshifan (talk) 12:12, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Looking at the page history, that tag seems to have been put there just last night. There were no improvement tags when this nomination was put up, and none when I made my vote. Guess I'll go over to the talk page and see what I can do. -YFJ (talk · edits) 17:23, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

I agree with Pinkyoshifan that it depends if this article is split or not - Waddledee10 Special:Contributions/Waddledee10
Two of the requested splits were done and the last was declined. With the split tag gone now, I believe that this article is all set to be featured. -YFJ (talk · edits) 20:51, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Kirby Super Star Ultra (March 12th, 2019 - May 24th, 2019)

This is one of our larger articles, and it definitely does not mess around with its content. I think this would be a good feature. --Fubaka (talk) 04:49, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

  1. Agreed, and the chart organization is great. Pinkyoshifan (talk) 21:58, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
  2. A nice and meaty article that's well-organized. I see no reason this can't be featured. -YFJ (talk · edits) 04:47, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Kirby's Dream Land 3 (February 7th, 2019 - April 2nd, 2019)

Finally finished my long-standing project to improve this article! When I first saw it a few months back, it was already pretty well-written, but it lacked some necessary sections and images. But I've fixed those problems since then, and now I'm happy to say it looks more than deserving of featured status. -YFJ (talk · edits) 22:09, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

  1. The article is indeed extensive and well-written. I especially like how each of the playable characters has their own section and quote, which I wish more Kirby games would allow for. --Fubaka (talk) 23:54, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  2. I agree that it's big and well- written -Pinkyoshifan (talk) 22:22, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Kirby (January 15th, 2019 - March 12th, 2019)

I know this seems silly, but we really ought to feature the most important content page on our wiki at some point. I and others have done a great deal of work to renovate it, so it is definitely deserving as well. --Fubaka (talk) 17:04, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

  1. I can't believe we haven't done this yet. --SapphireCutterSS.png Everone123, that one from SmashWiki (talk - contribs) 03:28, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
  2. Believe it or not, there's actually a character article that's well-written! And not only that, but it actually covers every game appearance of Kirby, rather than simply the most notable ones. This article definitely deserves to be featured, no question. -YFJ (talk · edits) 22:13, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Kirby: Triple Deluxe (October 28th, 2018 - January 15th, 2019)

This article has received a lot of care and attention recently, and it would be a good one to feature on the main page for a while. What do you all say? --Fubaka (talk) 08:49, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

  1. It definitely seems complete without being too long -Pinkyoshifan (talk) 15:00, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

City Trial (August 2nd, 2018 - October 22nd, 2018)

It is my intention to work on this article just a little more, but I am putting it here preemptively as a nomination, as it is already one of our better articles, and could use some recognition as such. --Fubaka (talk) 02:37, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

  1. I don't see any immediate issues. Pretty well written, and helped me find the machine parts, too :) Alex95 (talk) 02:41, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
  2. I have no problems nice to see that we are going to change the featured article more often Camerongiotto 7:57 August 2nd 2018

Whispy Woods (May 9th, 2018 - July 30th, 2018)

I want this article to be featured because it's a well-formatted article about one of the most well-known characters in Kirby.-Ghist (talk) 12:48, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

  1. A lot of work has been done on this article since it was first suggested to be featured, and now I think I can safely support its nomination. I do think a bit more work is needed, but it is much better now I think. --Fubaka (talk) 05:16, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

President Haltmann (June 22nd, 2017 - April 8th, 2018)

A comprehensive and relatively new article describing a villain from a recent Kirby game. Plenty of images and sources from the game provided, and much detail regarding the boss fight. ~~~~Fubaka (talk) 19:53, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

  1. A well-written and detailed article that has every right to be featured. Per the reasoning in the nomination, it meets all the featurement criteria. I support this article’s featurement. -YFJ (talk · edits) 06:11, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

It’s really a shame that this nomination has existed for nine months, and still I am the first voter. With only two active users on this wiki (those being the nominator and myself), this nomination will never pass nor fail. Can’t we change the rules in some way? Because if we don’t, this nomination will go on for decades. -YFJ (talk · edits) 06:11, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Kirby's Dream Land 2 (3 October 2010 - 2 February 2011)

A long and exhaustive Kirby game article covering all the major gameplay elements, information is split up into sections and organised into tables where it makes sense, images are used to illustrate the subject, sources are cited where necessary and possible.--Vellidragon 15:15, 3 October 2010 (CDT)

  1. Excellent work. This article is thorough enough to stand as an example for other game articles.Axiomist (talk) 20:38, 2 February 2011 (CST)

The box-art image looks very dark. Sounds a bit minor, but it wouldn't make our wiki look good if we had a dark picture on the main page. Also, some sprites look cut-off. AphelocomaMario.pngAphelocomaマリオ BirdonSuperstarUltra.gif 23:32, 4 October 2010 (CDT)

The box-art is the same that's used by Wikipedia atm. If anyone can find a better version though, feel free to upload it. Also, I'd like to know what sprites those would be. Apart from Whispy Woods, who has to be "cut off" because not all of him is seen in the game, I ripped all the sprites in their entirety.--Vellidragon 08:41, 5 October 2010 (CDT)
