Witch-king of Angmar

This article was brought to my attention, and it turned out to be surprisingly strong. It has good segmentation, well-illustrated, good references, with a strong section on portrayals. It would make a very strong addition to our new FA collection.--Theoden1 19:43, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

  • I whole-heartedly agree. This is a very long article which buckets of information and I think really shows us our ability to make long, detailed, accurate and engaging articles. --Mith 11:50, 24 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Agree. I go along with both of you and think that it would be a perfect "Featured Article" due to its richment of details, good illustration and good style. -- Eldarion Telcontar 05:19, 25 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Agree. I think more people should read it and as the "Featured Article" many would do it. loved to read it. -- Bombur Ironfoot 15:04; 27 June 2008 (EDT)


I know it's scandalous, ego-pleasing self promotion, but I personally think my preci... Glamdring article would make a great Featured Article. -- Ederchil 16:13, 29 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Agree. It is an impressive article for a weapon, with complete information, both from inside and outside the imaginary world, which gives the reader a more complete image. Great references section! The pleasant writing style is on the plus side as well. ~~ Þelma 15:55, 28 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Agree. It is well cited. For that alone goes my vote. ~~ nikolet 03:33, 8 July 2008 (EDT)


It's a pretty impressive article, and well deserved for my favourite character and such an interesting character.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  07:14, 6 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Agree. If I'm not mistaking, Gandalf has already been FA once. That doesn't mean it can't be again, but it's near the end of the queue. Oh, agree, btw. but the sourcing needs to be a bit better. -- Ederchil 08:01, 6 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Agree. This article is extensive, appears complete, well-referenced, and lavishly illustrated. It is a prime example of what an FA should be.--Theoden1 13:31, 7 June 2008 (EDT)
