Merchers

Well written informative, one of the few articles with references + plenty of images to grip the reader. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.22.128.22 (talk contribs)

Support-Nice article and I believe it would be a decent featured article.--Lord zezima (talk) 09:57, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose - I think not Green partyhat.png Mobbit100Talk

Oppose - There are just too many problems with this article. For example, the article contains questionable claims, such as the claim he created the first merchanting clan, that are not supported by reliable sources. The article cites Gameolosophy, which allows user-submitted content and a blog, which has the same problem. Out of the list of references, only his YouTube channel would be considered a reliable source by our standards. The article also contains several grammatical errors and does not fully conform to the Manual of Style. The article needs a lot of improvement before becoming featured.

Support- could be featured--Bezza160(talk)

Oppose - It just doesn't compare to Zezima and Larryr. Take a look at those two, and then Merchers. It's not FA material, and there are a lot of unsourced claims. Haidro Talk 00:25, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

Support - I know him he is a nice person and featuring would be great. Hunster50(talk) 18:04, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral - In terms of potential it could be a good featured article, you would then get a breadth of featured articles, skiller, most famous runescape player ever and famous merchant. Merchers could have the potential to bring in interest from merchants however there are some improvements, Runescape forums should be cited there are multiple posts in 2007-2008 that could be used if someone had them. In addition some more information on his current position should be included and possibly quotes from Merchers himself using a reliable youtube video would create more interest. In the future I think it has the potential to be featured however I think there are too many flaws at the moment and as smithing says I would say 3 references are reliable, but in all fairness Larryr could be better sourced as well.Zebez20 (talk) 16:32, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Note: I crossed out deceiving comments made by the nominator. Smithing (talk | contribs) 06:15, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Closed - There is no consensus to feature this article. The main concern brought up is the article contains unsourced claims and some of the references it contains are unreliable. Zebez20 also brought up the point that the article could be expanded. Smithing (talk | contribs) 02:54, April 1, 2013 (UTC)
