Genderswap

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on November 19, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Very comprehensive article about a popular trope, and deals with the controversy around it well. enchantedsleeper (talk) 17:59, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes. MPH
Maybe. It's an interesting page, but I don't think it's ready yet. Parts of it seem very outdated in terms of examples and what follows the word "recent". See the Trans Issues section. I also added comments to the talk page about confusing language and disorganization.--aethel (talk) 01:32, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
Not yet. I agree with aethel. Oxymora (talk) 14:41, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes It has great potential, but it is in need of an update.^^^ Victorywings (talk) 20:23, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes It definitely needs some updates, but that can be part of the Featured Article promotion. Mlemley 04:02 8 January 2018 UTC

Holes in My Yard

Nominated by Mrs. Potato Head on December 3, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Maybe... I like this article, but by itself it feels lacking in context as it's just one piece of the wider MZB fanfiction debacle. But I followed a link to the Marion Zimmer Bradley Fanfiction Controversy main article and my god, it's extensive. What do you think about featuring that one instead? --enchantedsleeper (talk) 21:40, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
I was wary of nominating the main page due to.... reasons. One of the many reasons is the MZB contro page needs to have some very focused eyes on it that are not mine. It is a complicated page, and I picked the "Holes in My Yard" page as kind of a back-door entrance to the topic. I hope others will weigh in with their opinions. Mrs. Potato Head on December 4, 2017
Yes, I think it's a neat page and links to the more complex/controversial stuff. Oxymora (talk) 14:46, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Whoosh!

Nominated by MPH on December 11, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Yes I tweaked a few things; otherwise good.[1] --aethel (talk) 22:07, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
Yes. Made some tweaks here too. A very interesting corner of 90s internet fandom! --enchantedsleeper (talk) 17:34, 01 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes --Oxymora (talk) 20:29, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, maybe could something be added about the prevalence of the website? Article says it's extensive and was updated in 2006 (which isn't bad considering how long the Xenaverse has been off the air. WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 13:36, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

News for the OBSSEsed

Nominated by MPH on January 10, 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Being totally unbiased (Not. ;-). Yes! WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 10:47, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, interesting article. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 16:51, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes -- Oxymora (talk) 20:36, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Interrogating the text from the wrong perspective

Nominated by MPH on January 14, 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Yes It's always interesting when creators engage in such a way (because it usually never goes well for them). The further readings Industry and Journalism links are especially interesting. WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 10:47, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes!--aethel (talk) 16:21, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, a classic. Oxymora (talk) 20:36, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Hobama

Nominated by User:aethel on 4 February 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Needs improvement. The page has empty sections on it - which I think were added since nomination, but it does seem like it needs fleshing out a fair bit before it can be featured. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 09:10, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
Maybe as long as its still missing significant content, I added some links, as well the {{Expand}} content flag WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 13:36, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

chemicalromance

Nominated by User:aethel on 4 February 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Yes! A very interesting piece of fandom history and a comprehensive page. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 10:04, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes Looks good and has lots of information WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 13:36, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
