Since it <nowiki>{{featured}}</nowiki> status in November 2004 a lot of information is added to this article. In my opinion this article does no longer qualify as "featured". Some information in it was dead wrong (already changed this) and some text needs to be wikified. I also believe that this article should be written from the Borgs POV, like the [[Vulcan]], [[Andorian]], [[Klingon]] does. All it does now is sum up the dealings the Federation had with the Borg. I also finds its structure not the way it should be. The Origins are part of the Borgs history and should therefore be place under it. The same goes for some of the information now placed under the Quadrant headings. All in all this arcticle could do with a good overhaul. -- [[User:Q|Q]] 23:24, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)
* '''Disagree'''. This article just nees some cleaning up. If an article has been featured, its done. That is the way it goes (in my opinion). It just needs to be monitored and tended to more. --[[User:Galaxy001|Galaxy001]] 22:21, 15 Jan 2006 (UTC)
* '''Agree'''. If the article needs to be cleaned up and tended to, that necessitates removing its featured status. I do see a lot of red links towards the bottom, which while not part of the official criteria is an indicator that something needs attention. I wouldl ike to see the part about the Borg's ultimate fate moved into a separate section, for one. But as for the POV, I think I understand where Q is coming from: it needs to talk about ''the Borrg'' encountering ''the Enterprise'' not visa-versa, and so on. Overall a very good article, but as both pointed out, it needs work (which justifies removing the {{tl|featured}}, at least for now). --[[User:Vedek Dukat|Vedek Dukat]] <sup> [[User talk:Vedek Dukat|<span style="color:red">Talk</span>]] | [[MemoryAlpha:User:Vedek Dukat/Episodes|<span style="color:gold;">Duty Roster</span>]]</sup> 22:36, 15 Jan 2006 (UTC)
**Now I '''Agree'''. After cleanup, however, it should be considered to be added back to the featured list. --[[User:Galaxy001|Galaxy001]] 01:13, 17 Jan 2006 (UTC)
*'''Agree''' - once cleaned up it can be re-nominated for FA, but for now it's not looking its best. - [[User:Hayter|Hayter]] 11:45, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
* '''Agree''' - The reason I agree are the many articles to be created/edited under the "Drone Technology" area. Once these articles are given suitable information I would reconsider this article for FA. [[User:Nwo4life|nWo 4 Life]] 05:13, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

This article is currently rewritten in its entirety. As far as I am concerned when a <nowiki>{{featured}}</nowiki> article is rewritten it loses automatically its featured status. If a article like this undergoes a major rewrite it needs to be checked again if it is up to MA standards, one could argue that if a featured article needs a major rewrite is was not ready to be featured et al, but that is debatable. Because an article was featured, does not mean the rewrite can stay featured also. -- [[User:Q|Q]] 19:42, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
:'''Comment'''. Actually, AureliusKirk had the exact same thoughts as you concerning the article's featured status. I told him he didn't need to nominate it here automatically and that someone else would if they thought the quality was lower because of his work. As far as I'm concerned, that should be the case; if the changes mean it no longer qualifies, take it off, otherwise it should be left alone. Unfortunately I don't know enough about this topic to judge it one way or another. --[[User:Vedek Dukat|Vedek Dukat]] <sup> [[User talk:Vedek Dukat|<span style="color:red">Talk</span>]] | [[MemoryAlpha:User:Vedek Dukat/Episodes|<span style="color:gold;">Duty Roster</span>]]</sup> 19:49, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
::'''reply'''. It is not really a matter of better or worse quality. When the initial feature status was given it was done so at the account of the then present article structure and wording. When a major rewrite is done this all changes and it should again go through the peerreview/nomination proces. At least as far as I am concerned. -- [[User:Q|Q]] 21:38, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
:'''Support''' - It was my intention to nominate this article for Featured removal, you guys just beat me to it. It is substantially different. Even if everyone thought the latest version was clear improvement, I'd still nominate it based on the radical change. If I thought removing the featured tag was within my "rights" I would have done so, but I thought this was the proper forum. --[[User:AureliusKirk|Aurelius Kirk]] 19:57, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
::'''reply'''. It is within you "rights" so to speak. Everyone can place an article on the removal list if they find it does no longer qualify as <nowiki>{{featured}}</nowiki>. Removing the featured status without letting it go through the removal proces is not done. -- [[User:Q|Q]] 21:38, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
