Good alliance page nominations

This process is just meant to identify good alliance pages (example: link TBD) from bad alliance pages (example: United Global Order). There's no defined close out period at the moment for nominations.

New Pacific Order

  • Nomination - Very in depth alliance article including alliance structure, culture, government, brief history with founding, treaties and gallery. additional links to charter, history, gov history.   Rogal  talk   03:44,9/11/2012 (UTC)
Abstain - In general, I feel the page is well within the necessary requirements content-wise for this distinction. However, I think some of the formatting could definitely be improved to make the article as a whole more æsthetically pleasing. It's also my personal opinion that things like the news template present in the introduction, which are not encyclopædic in nature, would be better suited to inclusion in a relevant portal than the article.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Comment - the news box was put there because we got rid of the portal since it was so out of date and too much work to keep updating content there as well as across the wiki. It's kind of a compromise. Maybe not entirely encyclopedic, but it's always updated. What don't you like about the formatting?  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 18:04, Tuesday, 11 September 2012 (ET)
Support - I personally like my alliance's wiki page, it works well and is updated regularly. We have made improvements over time, our latest one being a "Recent News" section where we can inform in public of all the recent events. We also have a lots of great information explaining each of our departments and many pages about our culture and history.  Dan100 | Talk | Nation 09:02, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
Support - I like the fact that it expands on each role in government and contains links to pages on its publications and history. I love the "Bringing order to chaos" graphic on the top box. However, I think that its companion history page Pacifica Monogatari could use a few images, just like that of a history of a good nation page.--LoganYeo (talk • contribs) 13:40, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Support - Well-structured pages with lots of information. A definite top-runner. - Arrnea (talk • contribs) 14:39, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

The Legion

  • Nomination - Good description of the alliance as a whole (structure, government, war history/ribbons, history, treaties) and aesthetically pleasing from colored templates usage on the page. With links to charter, history, gov history. The departments could use a bit of an expansion is the only thing I'd say that would need to be worked on.   Rogal  talk   03:44,9/11/2012 (UTC)
Oppose - My issues with the Legion's page are somewhat opposite my thoughts on Pacifica's; specifically, while I find the article well-formatted, I'm not certain it contains enough content. While information on history and admissions is well fleshed-out, I agree with Rogal's thoughts on the government departments, and furthermore think it definitely needs a more substantial introduction.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Oppose - Although I do like the graphics on Legion's page, I agree with Michael in saying that I don't think the information is quite there. They do have a good level of colour and links which saves their page in some ways but I still don't believe it is there yet.  Dan100 | Talk | Nation 09:02, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
Comment - They do have links to separate informative pages about their history and one on their charter. Question: Are we voting based on the main alliance page solely, or should we also consider related pages that it links to?--LoganYeo (talk • contribs) 13:45, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
These are nominations for individual pages, not alliances as a whole, as I understand it, so only the main page would be considered (though of course, one could argue the fact that it does link to other related pages is a plus).   Michael von Preußen | talk

The Imperial Order

  • Nomination - Great in-depth history, government, treaties, war history, image gallery. Additional links to charter, awards, gov history, TIO announcements.   Rogal  talk   03:44,9/11/2012 (UTC)
Support per nom.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Support - My only suggestion would be to maybe have more colour in the middle of the page rather than a wall of text.  Dan100 | Talk | Nation 09:02, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
Support - for the reasons outlined above - --LoganYeo (talk • contribs) 13:47, September 12, 2012 (UTC)


  • Nomination - Very in-depth history, government, alliance structure/departments, good use of templates, alliance treaties. Additional links to war history, charter, government history.   Rogal  talk   03:44,9/11/2012 (UTC)
Tentative Support - As a former alliance, I think the article should be reformatted to use past tense consistently when referring to the alliance.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Support - Needs a rewording but a pretty well done wiki page  Dan100 | Talk | Nation 09:02, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Mostly Harmless Alliance

  • Nomination - Good description of alliance structure, culture, government, war history/ribbons, and international relations. good use of thumbnail images throughout article. brief summaries of history/charter/government positions with additional links to all.   Rogal  talk   03:44,9/11/2012 (UTC)
Support per nom. Article does an excellent job of providing all relevant information without being unnecessarily verbose. Images are also used extremely well.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Tentative Support - The page has been done reasonably well. I wouldn't have two places where treaties are displayed and that many government members showing but the page is reasonable.  Dan100 | Talk | Nation 09:03, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
Supportn - per nom. - sign your name LoganYeo (talk • contribs) 13:48, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

New Polar Order

  • Nomination - alliance charter, good alliance history, war history/ribbons, image gallery, international relations, alliance structure/departments as well as department head history and good use of dept images/templates throughout the article. Only slight against it would be a rather small / not-up-to-date alliance history section compared to the alliance's life   Rogal  talk   03:44,9/11/2012 (UTC)
Tentative Support, providing the alliance history could be updated as Rogal suggested.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Tentative Support - I think that the wiki page needs a little reformatting. I also agree with what Rogal has said.  Dan100 | Talk | Nation 09:03, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Bulk Nominations

Umbrella While it is does not include history, it does have a massive amount of available information, policies, etc.

Orange Defense Network This one includes a lot of relevant information pertaining to ODN.

The International This one has more directly included info than Umbrella, but less than ODN.. still very informative.

Global Alliance and Treaty Organization This one is very informative.

Hooligans Informative, could use some slight adjustments to make it more easily readable.

Anarchy Inc. Not necessarily one for the record books, but definitely one to keep an eye on

Mushroom Kingdom It's informative, but could use some layout restructure.

This en-mass nomination could have been formatted better, but I'm on a time crunch at the moment.
