Niccolò Machiavelli

Meets the majority of the criteria. Yes, no inline citations, but it clearly mentions the chapter/book name etc. etc. and the quotes are simple. I'll like to see what is needed to get it featured. Pmlineditor  Talk 10:19, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Lead should be sourced, although i have no problem with the quotes not having inline refs since they're sourced directly from the book. Also, could do with another image or two to help spice it up a bit. Tempodivalse [talk] 19:24, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Our first VGP (very good page)... —§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 08:15, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

The article has 11 sourced quotes, a sourced lead, an image, and is simplified. —§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 08:20, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Just the one problem, most links to Wikipedia are dead. I'll try to simplify few quotes and that should be fine. Great work on it. PmlineditorTalk 08:22, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Looks ok. PmlineditorTalk 11:39, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support seems good 'nuff. –Juliancolton | Talk 01:06, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Steve Jobs

This article looks very promising as a VGP. —§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 08:21, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Lead is complex, too short and refs are incorrectly positioned. PmlineditorTalk 08:23, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
    • I simplified the lead a bit. If you feel it is still complex, feel free to simplify it furthur, including the quotes. Also there are 11 quotes, all sourced and simplified; the article is not short. —§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 08:28, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
      • The lead look ok now. 1 or 2 more sentences would have been good, but it is ok. PmlineditorTalk 08:29, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
