  1. I know I nominated him once long ago and he got taken off the list but his artical is waaaaaay better now it has more info more Images and is very well written thus why I say this artical should be featured. Luigibros2
  2. I added some sentences to Doopliss' intro, perhaps now he can be a featured article. I think his article is well written and detailed, and deserves to be Featured--Fantastic Mr. L 18:36, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
  3. I think this is written very well. It should be a Featured Article. Storm Warrior
  4. It has a trivia section, a powers and abilites section, a biography, etc. Seems pretty good to me White Knight (talk)
  5. Per all. It feels great to have an article you actually did something in be featured... :P Gyroid X (talk)

  8. Doopliss is an awesome character series! One problem, though, is if he was undead, wouldn't he have the ability to um, like, go through walls and stuff? Just a question.--<<Super Doopliss Fan>> 16:31, 18 October 2008 (EDT)last2dream
  9. This is a great artcle! It is lengthy with a lot of information, especially for just a boss. Crystalbamonsig.png Crystal Batamon 16:00, 4 November 2008 (EST)

Well, one thing I noticed is that the introduction is only two sentences. FAs need good leads, so I say that the intro needs to be a paragraph at least. I didn't read the entire article, but does appear to be nice, detailed, and lengthy. WK

@Stumpers' vote: Almost all more notable characters from the Mario series have appeared in Super Mario-Kun. And there are many more Japan-only mangas which feature Mario series characters. But most people here (except for Garlic Man and a few other) don't have access to them. Yoshi's article is featured despite there's not a word about Super Mario-Kun in the article, and Yoshi is one of the main characters there. I don't think that the inclusion of information about Japan-only material should be a requirement for FA status, because of obvious reasons. --Grandy02 14:04, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

I understand, but keep in mind that one of the FA status requirements is that the article needs to be complete. As it stands Doopliss's article is not. Couldn't you ask one of those users for a favor? Stumpers! 14:48, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
Okay, I put a message on Garlic Man's talk page. However, if this is a requirement, then most of the featured articles on characters and species had to be unfeatured, because they have (almost) no information about Japan-only manga appearances. --Grandy02 15:39, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
Point taken. I think RAP is also a good go-to guy for Mario-Kun. Stumpers! 14:13, 20 September 2008 (EDT)

I took a look at a base for online Super Mario Kun comics and then found a small comic strip with Doopliss in it so I tried to determen it and joted down what I got in an other apperance section.--Luigibros2 18:16, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Awesome! Removed my oppose. Stumpers! 18:25, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Maybe I'm missing something obvious here, but shouldn't this be a featured article by now? White Knight (talk)

Whoops! Indeed, it should. Missed this one. Thanks for noticing. Time Questions 07:28, 30 November 2008 (EST)
