This is another article featured a while back that has a nearly citation-less background information section, despite containing numerous claims. Gvsualan added incite tags back in February, but many still remain. Unless they are resolved this article should be removed as a Featured Article. &ndash; [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] <small><sup>( [[User talk:Cleanse|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Cleanse|contribs]] )</sup></small> 11:22, October 19, 2010 (UTC)

Articles nominated for removal

Prototype (episode)

Prototype (episode)

It's got a rambling summary and a bg info section that, (at least) in my opinion, is not written from the right perspective; it's the episode that's under discussion, not the robots! So, I suggest changing the headings & possibly rearranging some of the info, but the info itself can (at least more or less) stay. --Defiant 09:45, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

I cleaned up the background section a bit by putting the more traditional "Story", "Production", "Continuity" etc. headings. Feel free to improve on these. I added a couple of citation requests because some information appears to be assumed rather than based on production info. If they were cited, I'd say the background section would be reasonable enough for a Featured Article; not every episode has as much interesting stuff as say, "The Best of Both Worlds". I agree that the wall of text makes a mockery of the term "summary", so unless that is trimmed, and the background cited properly, I support removal.– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 10:29, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
Support. or Conditional Support. The summary section is way too long. Unless that is shortened to be more concise, this article should not be FA. – Distantlycharmed 17:51, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

For the same reasons as the Dukat article (although Dukat is worse): lacks organization, the personal relationships section is missing for nearly all folks and his relationship to most of the crew members are somehow jumbled into one section. It goes on. Overall, this article does not represent "the best example of the Memory Alpha community's work". – Distantlycharmed 17:51, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose: I believe the article is fine and gives enough detail into Sisko's life, relationships, and career as depicted in DS9. Granted there is room for improvement in the personal relationships section, the necessary work doesn't warrant it's removal as a featured article. --Nero210 19:15, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Well, duh, if it needs that kind of improvement requiring a pna incomplete add, then there is obviously something lacking; it also means that it does not meet "the best example of the Memory Alpha community's work" criteria. By the way, everyone, when was it nominated? I cant find the nomination. – Distantlycharmed 19:35, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Well then add the fricken info and be done with it! If that's all it needs....-- 16:43, October 30, 2010 (UTC)
Let's keep this civil guys. Also (assuming this is Nero210), please log in when commenting. Thanks.
Anyway, I found the nomination and posted it on the talk page.– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 02:00, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Cleanse!! You are good. How did you find it? I couldnt find it in the 2004 archives :(– Distantlycharmed 04:50, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Glad to help. :-) It was buried in the history of Memory Alpha: Nominations for featured articles. I had a hunch it would be towards the beginning; some of those earlier entries were done before there was a formal archive process for successful entries (as far as I'm aware).– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 08:23, October 31, 2010 (UTC)
