Kiddy Kong[edit]

Remove featured article status[edit]

  1. Yoshi the Space Station Manager (talk) Back in 2011, this page was put up to be unfeatured. It failed, but now I think it is time to have it unfeatured. I found this article while looking at the upcoming FA. I went to look at it, and found that it has a rewrite template on it. This was put on by a patroller who knows that feature articles aren't suppose to have these marks. It has been since August of this year since the rewrite has been placed. There may be more to this article that falls under FA requirements, but this is extremely noticeable. Summary: This can't be a FA according to the one of the rules.

Keep featured article status[edit]

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) The length is a point of contention, but otherwise I have fixed the writing problems that not only were specific to the rewrite template, but to the entire article. I say unless there's more discussion regarding the length, we keep this article featured.
  2. Alex95 (talk) It appears Baby Luigi has fixed the writing issues. Per her.
  3. Luigi 64DD (talk) The issues have been fixed, so per all.

Removal of support/oppose votes[edit]

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) The rewrite template no longer exists
  2. Luigi 64DD (talk) Per Baby Luigi.

Comments[edit]

Any reason that said patroller put it up? BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 16:00, 24 December 2016 (EST)

Yoshi876 (talk) was the one to include it, though no specific reason was given. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:03, 24 December 2016 (EST)

I've discovered that the section rewrite template isn't enough. The entire article is poorly written. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 22:34, 29 December 2016 (EST)

The talk page isn't that great either. Mainly because the image is very big. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 19:22, 31 December 2016 (EST)
Talk pages have next to no bearing on the status of the featured article BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 19:24, 31 December 2016 (EST)
I know. But, it needs to be done too. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 19:27, 31 December 2016 (EST)

I'm slightly skeptical on size, but then Miracle Book is a shorter article, and still featured, so I think this one can probably pass. Yoshi876 (talk)

I wouldn't compare those two articles, they passed with different merits BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 15:58, 1 January 2017 (EST)
I don't think length matters either, but a majority of the Miracle Book page is pictures. I don't think that's a good comparison. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:17, 1 January 2017 (EST)
Length does matter to an extent, but Miracle Book was featured as a "Featured List" and falls under that category which has different criteria than Featured Articles. This has to pass writing guidelines that other featured articles have, and one of those include length. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 16:19, 1 January 2017 (EST)
