Star Fox[edit]

A neat layout of pictures, of which there was certainly many, and a nice flow through the older games to the present day. Oh, and lots and lots of body text! --GreenReaper(talk) 06:09, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures[edit]

A nice polished article produced by some fans of the series. Certainly worth of featuring, even if a lot of it came from Wikipedia - I believe they'd written it there as well. --GreenReaper(talk) 06:08, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Werewolf: the Apocalypse[edit]

Another fairly obvious choice. A little dry in some places (lots of lists, few pictures), but full of information about the game, and what pictures were there worked well. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:57, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)


The factuality of parts of this article were dubious. The topic was of questionable importance. But counterbalancing that, it was a great article in terms of flow, layout, comprehensiveness, interest and pictures, and that's what being a featured article is (almost) all about. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:15, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Burned Furs[edit]

Another not-quite-compelling choice. The topic was good, but the article could have been better. Unfortunately, I didn't know enough about it or have time enough to research enough knowledge to improve it. At least most people with an acquaintance with the fandom will have heard of them, unlike the next topic. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:11, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Tapestries MUCK[edit]

This was another of the "ack, no featured article options, I'll have to use one I've worked on" choices. Worse, a lot of it was copied from Wikipedia. For shame! Still, Wikipedia content is really as good as original content if people haven't seen it, and making that happen is the important part. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:09, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

The Prancing Skiltaire[edit]

This is one I was tempted to feature just for the topic. Fortunately, the writing was great as well, and it had lots of neat trivia - a good historical source. I managed to get Mark Merlino onto WikiFur as well, and he added some further interesting stuff. --GreenReaper(talk) 04:58, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Now this was interesting. Initially unpromising, the majority of this article just popped up as a collaboration by Skippyfox and Rama. It was immediately obvious that this article was feature quality. Of course, a few days later people got into a squabble about just how sexual it was, but eh! --GreenReaper(talk) 04:52, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)


This was one of my early projects, reading through the history and learning a few interesting tidbits. To be honest, I didn't enjoy having to feature this article - I didn't think it had reached its potential (and I still don't, though the improvements to the locations are encouraging). Nevertheless, it had a picture (of sorts), good layout, and was certainly long enough. --GreenReaper(talk) 04:46, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)[edit]

Now this was a tricky choice. A bit short, and a lot contentious, but again, one of the better laid-out articles, and it had some good links. And heck, I've always been a fan of the work presented by the site, although sometimes they're a bit raw. --GreenReaper(talk) 04:44, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Two nice pictures, a lot of text (perhaps too much - I think at the time it could have done with being more broken-up). Some good linking. I didn't write it. All good things! --GreenReaper(talk) 04:43, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)


A controversial choice, to be sure (particularly by those who had been hurt by goons in the past, and who mistrusted the person represented), but at the time it was a no-brainer, being by far the most professionaly-designed article, both rich in relevant content and a pleasure to read. My only concern was that people would think I was featuring the user, not the article, as indeed occurred. --GreenReaper(talk) 04:41, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

World Tree[edit]

Good picture, and at the time it was one of the longest articles on WikiFur. I was a bit cagey about putting this on the front page (as I always am when featuring pages I significantly contributed to), but nobody complained. It's interesting to watch the list of red links in the artists section slowly turn to blue links over time. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 04:33, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Ninja High School[edit]

This page had good layout, a set of good pictures including one usable on the front page, and was obviously written by a fan, including quite a bit of trivia. --GreenReaper(talk) 04:29, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
