Snitch!

Nominated by flyingthesky on 8 Dec 2021. As of this writing, the page has a good intro, with no content flags.

I believe it's been a while since we had a Harry Potter nomination and with the 20th anniversary coming up, I figured now is an especially good time to feature one of the very first Harry/Draco fics! - flyingthesky (talk) 11:48, 8 December 2021 (UTC)
Hesitant Yes: I think the intro needs to be improved a little bit first, because it is was one of the very first Harry/Draco fics maybe a little could be added about it's influence or importance in the fandom. -- Kingstoken (talk) 16:57, 8 December 2021 (UTC)
Changing vote to yes becuase of changes made to introduction -- Kingstoken (talk) 15:38, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
I've added a bit more to the intro about what made it noteworthy, as well as its fandom classic status. Let me know what you think? --enchantedsleeper (talk) 18:45, 1 January 2022 (UTC)
Thank you, that does look better -- Kingstoken (talk) 15:38, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: While I agree that there could be more about this fic’s influence/importance in the pairings history I do think the rest of the article is good and I found the information on how readers reacted to a slash pairing at the time interesting. Also the 20th anniversary reunion is showing in the next few days so a HP article would be timely. --Emma M (talk) 22:02, 30 December 2021 (UTC)
Yes: A well-rounded page about an interesting fanfic. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 18:45, 1 January 2022 (UTC)

Fandom Ghost: Created Out Of Wholecloth By Fanon

Nominated by Auntags on 4 January 2022. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and is reasonably comprehensive, with no content flags. An interesting meta from 2016 about unconscious bias in shipping preferences.

Yes: I remember this post and think it would be fun to feature in the wake of another tumblr snafu. - flyingthesky (talk) 13:12, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: -- Kingstoken (talk) 20:06, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: Can't believe I never thought to nominate this myself. (Also it's weird because I was thinking about the Fandom Ghost like... earlier today...) Lots of interesting responses to read here and the intro is very nice as well. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 23:33, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: same as ES I think about this article all of the time and it DESERVES a feature --Mozaikmage (talk) 23:51, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Nomination approved.

Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do

Nominated by OMAW on 10 December 2021. As of this writing, the page has a good intro, with no content flags. I'm never quite sure how long articles need to be, so whilst it's relatively short, it seems pretty decent.

Not Yet: I think it needs a little more meat to the article, and a few changes should be made for it to ready, for example, the intro includes the story's summary, which should be it's own section, but if you take the summary out that leaves the intro a little scant. I would like to see more reactions and reviews (I'll try and see if I can find some). Plus, were there any fanworks, aside form the big bang art, inspired by this one? -- Kingstoken (talk) 02:16, 11 December 2021 (UTC)
Yes: changed vote because of changes made -- Kingstoken (talk) 00:35, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
To try and flesh the page out more, I've added a dedicated section for the additional pieces of artwork, plus one for follow-ups & fanworks inspired by the fic. I don't think there's a lot more that can be added as this isn't one of those fics that inspired a ton of fanworks, but I think it does make the page more rounded? --enchantedsleeper (talk) 23:31, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: There could probably be more added, but I think it's fine as it! - flyingthesky (talk) 13:12, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: Short and sweet, and more reviews have been added since December. Patchlamb (talk) 22:20, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: I added a couple of sections (see above) as the page still felt a bit thin, but I'm happy for this to be featured now. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 23:31, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Nomination approved.

S.T.A.R.

Nominated by PictoChatCyberBully on 31 Oct 2021. As of this writing, the page has a good intro, with no content flags. — PictoChatCyberBully (talk) 23:38, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Yes: -- Kingstoken (talk) 12:55, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
Hesitant Yes: I feel like the sections could be renamed to be slightly more clear about what the section is and the first section expanded to a paragraph or two so the reader gets a better sense of the linked page. - flyingthesky (talk) 23:35, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

:Almost: I'm confused by the "Explosive Growth, Overreach, and Its Demise" section which, if I'm not mistaken, is pretty much just a redirect to a section lower down on the same page? --Greedy dancer (talk) 23:29, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Yes Changed my vote following edits by Mrs Potato Head! Looks good to me now. -- Greedy dancer (talk) 18:53, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
Almost: Interesting article but I agree with Greedy dancer that this section, in particular, is confusing. It essentially links to a later section, but even that one doesn't fully cover the explosive growth or overreach part of the title, just the demise. This leaves the article feeling like it's missing something. --Emma M (talk) 18:52, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
Yes Also changed my vote following edits by Mrs Potato Head, thanks for the work! —Emma M (talk) 19:03, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
I tweaked this page quite a bit. MPH (talk) 23:22, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes Really like the changes made to this page. It would be a good feature. --Auntags (talk) 23:58, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes: Lot of work done on this page since initial nomination in October. Looks good to me! Patchlamb (talk) 02:29, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
Nomination approved.
