Accepted Nominations 2008

Missing Pieces

  • Nominated by:--Mc peko 06:20, 20 November 2007 (PST)
  • This is what is going on in Lost-land at the moment. And I think there should always be a featured article. There is currently none.
  • I second or is it third this piece of the feature article--Reena511 11:36, 14 January 2008 (PST)
  • Yep. It's almost over, ought to be featured. Froglars 06:20, 20 January 2008 (PST)

Richard Alpert

  • Nominated by: Sam McPherson
    • This is a very well-written article, and contains information about one of the most enigmatic and mysterious characters on the show. In my opinion, it is very worthy for featured article. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  07:54, 27 July 2008 (PDT)

Agree: I love the character, and it's a great article. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 21:19, 3 August 2008 (PDT)

  • Agree: Its nice and crisp, to the point. --Nickb123 (Talk) 06:11, 6 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree: A nicely written article, with very interesting subject matter. --Blueeagleislander 01:15, 7 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree -Mr.Leaf 18:06, 7 August 2008 (PDT)

"Maternity Leave"

Mystery Tales No. 40

  • Nominated by:Nickb123
  • I always enjoy literary references on the show, and although the article is not the longest, I think its content is reasonably laid out but more importantly very interesting. In particular, if you actually read March Has 32 Days (there's a link in the article, and come on its only 4 pages and with pictures!) - you'll notice great overlaps with Lost which I think could potentially be very important. So it would be nice to reference this, and feature this on the front page, with interest as opposed to necessarily fantastic prose. AOTW should be about interest as well as exceptionally well written pieces. --Nickb123 (Talk) 16:09, 10 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agreed: I hadn't really looked at this article until now, but it is very well written, and I think it has many tie-in's to Lost, especially about Desmond's "Flashes Before Your Eyes" experience. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  16:15, 10 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agreed: A great example of Lostpedia's depth and awesome original research articles. --Blueeagleislander 02:06, 11 August 2008 (PDT)

Michael Dawson

  • Nominated by: CTS
  • Michael has been through a lot of history on the Island, including building the raft, captured by the Tailies, and leading a rescue mission for Walt. He betrayed the survivors in one of Lost's most shocking moments, and then left on a boat (leaving Jack, Kate, and Sawyer in the Others' hands). He later returned on the Kahana to redeem himself for his actions (which he did by saving the Oceanic Six). Michael's story-arc is very unique too: he was a main characters in Seasons 1 and 2, and he wasn't seen throughout Season 3, but he came back for his long-awaited return in Season 4. This is one of the best-written character articles I've seen, and Michael should definitely be featured.
  • Agree. Michael is one of the more complex characters in the series. The plot could not have been advanced without "a" Michael or a collection of people doing the things he did.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 13:02, 11 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree: Wonderfully written article, I think. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  15:21, 11 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree: Great character article, although we have had two in a row, so not straight away. --Blueeagleislander 01:13, 12 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree: A character that is very intricate and has a lot of depth. Even though I think Sayid should have thrown him overboard for betraying us.:P The article obviously has great quality and should be showcased.--JinxTalk Contribs 11:45, 19 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree: Several major plot points have revolved around Michael. BETTYFIZZW (Talk) 14:49, 30 August 2008 (PDT)

Pilot, Part 1

  • Nominated by: Sam McPherson
    • Several other episodes, such as "Through the Looking Glass," and "The Man Behind the Curtain," have obtained featured article status. I feel, that in this long break ahead, we should look back on the episode that started it all. The article is also very well written. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  19:45, 20 July 2008 (PDT)
Yes: I like this one, it sets a good example of how episode articles should be formatted - the prose summaries are not too detailed or therein lack of, the pictures are well organized in the zig-zag fashion to render well on all web browsers, and content is in line with episode manual of style policy. So yeah, I like it. --Nickb123 (Talk) 06:07, 6 August 2008 (PDT)
Yes: This episode was one of the best Lost episodes out there, and the article is a great reflection of this. --Blueeagleislander 06:13, 6 August 2008 (PDT)
Agree - Can't see why not. -Mr.Leaf 18:06, 7 August 2008 (PDT)

DHARMA booth video

  • Nominated by  Sam McPherson  T  C  E 
  • A very interesting and current article, is well written as well.
    • Agree - This is a good article. It produced some very spirited discussion/theories and is better because of that. It was fun to work on.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 17:06, 25 October 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree The best part of the DIRP, and currently LP's best article on it. --Blueeagleislander 17:01, 7 November 2008 (PST)

Beach camp battle

  • Nominated by CTS
  • I think this is a fantastic article, and is written on a very memorable event in the Lost timeline. I think all the battle articles are good, but I like this one the best. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 14:50, 15 December 2008 (PST)
  • Agree But with bias, as I wrote the first version of it, and it hasn't been changed much. --Blueeagleislander 05:10, 16 December 2008 (PST)


Rejected Nomination 2008

Muffin drop

  • Nominated by Froglars 05:24, 8 March 2008 (PST)
  • No, a featured article shouldn't be on a userpage. --Mr. Crabby (Talk) 06:07, 8 March 2008 (PST)

ISLAND HISTORY

i'm new at this, but how about the worlds first ISLAND HISTORY... http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Island_history Nominated by 08:52, 18 April 2008 (PDT)

Frog

  • Nominated by: Dharmacakra Kevrock   talk  contribs   09:36, 16 June 2008 (PDT)
    • This has been an enduring mystery on the show for quite some time. The frog mission brought together Sawyer and Hurley in a very emotionally gripping event. Plus it's summer hiatus, so we should breathe some life into these old scenes.
STRONG DISAGREE: this is far from AOTW material. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 11:24, 16 June 2008 (PDT)
True, but they're not as funny.  :) Dharmacakra Kevrock   talk  contribs   18:30, 16 June 2008 (PDT)
'Strong Disagree every other nomination deserves AotW over this, its mainly just quotes! --Blueeagleislander 05:20, 17 June 2008 (PDT)
But that is the joke. The frog article is great because, 1) it highlights the thoroughness of the wiki - we track things down to a freakin frog from a throw away/filler scene, 2) it is a great example of the obsessiveness of fans over the slightest details like, oh, maybe the fact it isn't actually a tree frog, 3) it is a good example of the group-dynamic of wikis, since there was an actual discussion if the article should be named "tree frog" or "frog", "But what happens if there's another frog on the show, then we need a 'frog' disambiguation page!", etc., and 4) its just plain funny to have the AOTW to be about a frog! But maybe that's just me, comedy is subjective. Dharmacakra Kevrock   talk  contribs   07:58, 17 June 2008 (PDT)
Disagree: Despite the "humor," this frog has little relevance to the overall storyline, and is not material for a featured article. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  08:37, 2 July 2008 (PDT)

F-Missions

Background cast/middle section survivors

Body Count

  • Nominated by: Orhan94
    • This is a great article which I redid the past week, and I think it should be a featured article soon. Now it's looking better than Deceased islanders, because it's features a list of characters that left, joined a group or left the Island, as well as a list deceased characters.--Orhan94 00:52, 7 June 2008 (PDT)
      • I would appriciate that some of you replied to this sooner.--Orhan94 00:52, 7 June 2008 (PDT)
  • First of all, don't ask for an immediate reply. It will take time, like any wiki discussion, for a decision to be made. But, Disagree, as its just a list. A good list, yes, but we have better articles. Good job on the refurbish though. --Blueeagleislander 01:18, 7 June 2008 (PDT)
  • Disagree. Like Blue eagle islander said, it is just a list. As for the reply thing: you nominated this today and you expect to get a reply that fast? I nominated Eko and So It Begins weeks ago and there hasn't been any reply, so it obviously takes time. --CTS 10:14, 7 June 2008 (PDT)
  • No. Style over content. The tables take up far too much space compared to the few details they contain. It actually makes it harder to read the information than simpler lists would.--TechNic|talk|conts 20:28, 7 June 2008 (PDT)
  • No: It's a list, basically. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  12:45, 14 July 2008 (PDT)
  • No - While interesting for the Lost fanatic it has no real information and is IMO not got the content needed to be AOTW. -Mr.Leaf 18:06, 7 August 2008 (PDT)

The Other 48 Days

  • Nominated by:  Bringlibbyandcharlieback  Talk   Contribs 11:16, 30 June 2008 (PDT)
  • Besides this episode being brilliant and the best in season 2, it is neat, tidy and easy to follow. It laid down the building blocks for Ana Lucia, Libby, Eko, Bernard and other tail section survivors. The episode is like a season within an episode with unimportant and boring details left out.
No: The summary's not really good enough, in my opinion. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  08:38, 2 July 2008 (PDT)
No: Maybe in the future but not now. Sentences like "A Zach with a teddy bear points out his sister floating in the water." need work. -Mr.Leaf 18:06, 7 August 2008 (PDT)
