Drakie

  • This is a good article, well-written, I think. Astronix
  • This is a really good article. Indiales1 (talk)
  • Support - A good article, it should be a featured article. Green partyhat.png Mobbit Talk

Comments - I think it has a long way to go before it becomes feature-worthy material. Just a few observations:

  • The first sentence refers to him as one of the most popular players in the game. It's really difficult to judge this, considering there are so many famous players and each of them could be very popular. Thus, I think this claim is likely to be disputed and should be backed up by a reliable source, or removed if that's not possible, per Citing sources.
  • The prose could be improved. For example, this does not flow well in the article:
"Drakie devoted considerable time to a clan called Legends Of Glory until the clan closed. He has 200 million experience in Cooking. As of 2012, he does not appear in the hiscores."
  • Under the "RuneScape career" heading, it states "In late 2011 he quit playing RuneScape, explaining that he thought "RuneScape was getting very boring and easy"." Per the Citing sources guideline linked above, quotes need to be cited.
  • The lead mentions information that the body does not. For example, it says that Drakie started playing in 2003 after a friend showed him the game. The lead is supposed to summarize the body of the article per RSP:LEAD, and the one in the Drakie article doesn't.

There are still some grammar issues that need sorting out, but the article looks much better than before. Smithing (talk | contribs) 23:30, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

More comments - The article has good coverage, although there are some confusing parts.

  • "He also has a friends chat named "Drakie" in which he can sometimes be found." Not included in the body of the article.
This can be removed, many players have friends chat (Zezima, Gertjaars, etc..)Green partyhat.png Mobbit100Talk 17:05, September 29, 2013 (UTC)
  • "In his time in the game Drakie was known for his performance in training skills easily and fast, same that most of the time he was joking with other players wherever he went." The meaning of this is unclear.
  • "Fact that generated several comments where he passed." Unclear
  • What do you mean by "emerged as one of the largest clans in the Brazilian scenario of the minigame"?
