A simple, detailed article about a simple elegant character. What's more to ask for? - BlueSpeeder - "The Die is Cast" 02:45, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

  1. It's an Archie Comics page they have thier own wiki let's focus on pages that don't have thier own wikis for featured articales. Amyrunhammer Sonamyfan666 Follow me inside, outside, through the stratosphere... Amyrunhammer
  2. I believe there are more worthy articles to be featured and the information in this article is not substantial for it to be featured. SilverPlays 97 14:15, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

  • Amy, your opposition makes no scene. Our wiki is supposed to cover all aspects of Sonic, including Archie comics. Are you referring to the 'It must have been written primarily by Sonic News Network users' rule? If so, this was made by blue without using the writing of another wiki. If you are going to oppose, make your reasoning about the article it's self (Also, you might want to check your grammar). SilverPlays 97 14:15, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
  • It does all I'm saying is that it's a page about the Archie Comics which have the Mobius Encyclopedia as a wiki all about it what I'm saying is lets focus on articles that are from series that don't have their own wikis I would say the same about a Fleetway article as well. If we are going to make an article a featured one let's give it to a page that doesn't have a wiki all about it such as Sonic Underground or the Main series. As to my grammar I do apologies but I care more about saying what I have to say then how nice it looks if it does make it a problem then I do fix it.

  • Amy, 9 Archie-related articles have been featured in the past. This is not an issue and it will never be. SilverPlays 97 14:31, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
  • That doesn't change a thing it's happened and may happen again the whole point about nominating an article is to see whether or not the users think it should be featured. My point for disagreeing is why I think it shouldn't be a featured article. If their wasn't an Archie Comics wiki I wouldn't mind but their is, so I say no so that other series can get their articles featured so more people can learn about them.

  • I obviously can not convince you, Amy, to change your stance. I can, however, inform other users not to oppose for the same reasons as you. It makes no sense to have a bias against Archie articles just because Moubius Encyclopedia covers the same topic. All that should matter is the body-of-work of the article.

  • As long as you can respect my stance and the stances of others I am fine with that. As to the body-of-work for the article if it has been nominated then it is obviously well enough made that it is a quality article in the eyes of some people. Also to return your kindness about my grammar the correct word thier would be advise not inform you are adviseing them not informing them.

  • I'm a bit picky but references 1 and 2 need to be properly cited with {{Cite web}}. Then I might consider. The Passionate Musician 22:15, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
