Pictogram plus.png Hoog support How the BLU article didn't get into featured article? How pootis happen? Hoog support TheGuy299 04:05, 24 December 2012 (PST)
Pictogram plus.png Support Given that a merge proposal has been made regarding the RED and BLU articles, I think it appropriate to revisit the FA status of RED and BLU. The argument for merge is that the articles are redundant. A counter-argument is that that very redundancy is fundamental to the themes of the articles. If the two articles are intentionally so similar, and if the decision falls against the merge, then BLU should have at least a brief, if long overdue, stint as featured article if only to complete the intended symmetry.

The merge discussion is closed. The result of the discussion was "do not merge". MIKADO282 oOOOOo oo oo 15:19, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Pictogram plus.png Support So, there is just as much reason for BLU to be a Featured Article as there ever was for RED. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (Help Wanted!) 03:49, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Pictogram plus.png Support RED was, BLU should be too. Calcium fiend (talk) 17:11, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Pictogram plus.png Support If Reds have the featured article why can't the Blu boys have one too? Lolimsogreat21 (talk) 20:49, 9 April 2021 (UTC)Lolimsogreat21

Pictogram plus.png Support it's about time we had a new featured article, and this one is exactly as good as RED. I know I just suggested Pyro, but that was before I noticed that this was actually a reasonably recent discussion. Kestrelguy (talk) 19:56, 19 August 2021 (UTC)

Mannpower

The new mode in development. It has a lot of great information on the mode, powerups, and others. Plus, we really need to change the Featured Article. It's been stuck on "Mann vs Machine" for so long. --Dr. Scaphandre (talk) 17:08, 23 June 2015 (PDT)

Pyro

I think Pyro meets all the criteria for a featured page.

  • All the information one would expect it to have
  • (to my knowledge) As accurate as it gets
  • Same style, tone, and level of detail as the other class pages
  • Appropriate use of media
  • As well-connected as any other class page
  • Soldier has been featured for an eon and a half now
