Dragonfly

With the overhaul WS gave this article at the beginning of this month, I do believe it's worthy of A-class status. There is little left to be improved upon. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 21:53, November 8, 2017 (UTC)

Support Support — The content is as comprehensive as it could possibly be. The only thing to elevate the article further would be to add more images to the anatomy/behaviour sections, but there really are very few good quality screencaps of dragonflies.

I looked into that before nominating the article, but there aren't any good images available (from the show, I don't know about the artbook or something). One of the few other suitable images is of the dragonflies inside the cage, but that doesn't seem all that useful (unless you think otherwise?) or the dragonflies harassing people, but those aren't really that closeup, making the focus more on the people and on Aang dealing with them than the animals themselves. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 06:44, November 10, 2017 (UTC)
I came to the same exact conclusions :P I was also considering the cage pictures, but the dragonflies are very obscured by the bars so it's not the best addition either. If the cage was less imposing then it would've definitely worked to highlight either lethargy in captivity, social behaviour, or wing resting habit, but in my opinion the image isn't the most ideal for any of those so I would say it's better to just stick with the profile image.

Per Lady Lostris' explanation. Just making it an official nomination for an A-class article rather than B-class. Bolin spriteZiryerxPainted Lady (wallcontribsfanon) 21:45, November 1, 2016 (UTC)

Support Support — Considering that since the nomination, the article was tweaked even further and received an image update, I'm even more in favor of awarding this article A-class status. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 11:25, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
Support Support — It was very well-written when I got to the article and I further modified it to have more specific anatomy and behavior sections. Waterbending emblem Water Spout 22:53, November 12, 2016 (UTC)

Since its promotion to B-class nearly a year ago, this article underwent a rewrite by Inmyplace and myself, smoothing out the wording and tweaking the sentence formation. As such, I believe it is now deserving to be bumped to a higher class. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 11:47, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

Support Support — I have completed minor rewording of passages and believe the article to be of sufficient quality for class promotion. Waterbending emblem Water Spout 00:20, October 7, 2017 (UTC)

Unagi

While this article was undeserving a week ago, the rewrite that it underwent by several users, including LL and myself, has earned it the honor of B-class nomination in my opinion. It is now an extensive article that contains essentially all relevant information about the specific creature encountered as well as the species in general; however, it does yet seem shy of A-class quality. Bolin spriteZiryerxPainted Lady (wallcontribsfanon) 23:53, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

I gave it a lookover, made some tweaks, and would even consider this to be of A-class quality: it contains all accessible and relevant information and is written in an eloquent, encyclopedic style. So I definitely support it for B, but also nominate it now for A. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 11:47, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

To keep it short: this episode page is easy to read, sufficiently details what happens in the show without going overboard, and has a nice balance between text and images. It is of good quality to be highlighted, though perhaps not up to A-class standard. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 10:32, October 14, 2015 (UTC)

Still some room for improvement here and there, but it is definitely of a high enough quality to be promoted to B-class. HAMMEROFTHOR 21:50, October 15, 2015 (UTC)
Agreed, overall it is a fairly well-written article with some minor wording tweaks needed, so a B-class promotion seems appropriate. Bolin spriteZiryerxPainted Lady (wallcontribsfanon) 09:51, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
