Nominator's comments: A high-ranking military authority died in the crashed. Lieutenant general, and the commander of the 8th Corps. Seems major enough. --► Sincerely: SolaVirum 17:47, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: I know this is already in ongoing, but I believe today's developments with 38 dead protestors is sufficient to return this to a blurb. The article has not yet been updated, but I expect to see the article updated within the next twelve hours or so, and perhaps nominating this will bring some additional attention to the article.

Nominator's comments: Shocking death from a very famous singer in Spain. I've just created his article, most of the paragraphs are referenced, although there's a section that I'll work on after dinner. Cleaning is needed about grammar.. Alsoriano97 (talk) 19:50, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Very influential civil rights activist and Democratic Party insider. I recently got this photo of him to FP status. Article appears to be in good shape. AllegedlyHuman (talk) 16:09, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
In 1998 Jordan helped Monica Lewinsky, a former White House intern, after she left the White House.Helped her with what? If my memory of 1998 is correct, he helped her find a job, but given the nature of that situation, we should be spelling it out more clearly. – Muboshgu (talk) 21:29, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: British art historian. Article requires some work, but, definitely worth the investment of effort. I will get to it later tonight. If someone wants to get to it before me, please feel free to do so. Ktin (talk) 18:35, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Nicolas Sarkozy's article is good (Not much info on the trai/arrest though), the trail's article is current event stub. This is notable for ITN, but article qualities are bad. I would recommend Wait !Votes until articles are improved. Elijahandskip (talk) 13:50, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: English footballer and manager. Article has some unsourced statements. Black Kite (talk) 17:50, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
Articles should be a minimally comprehensive overview of the subject― which it does. 2405:201:4013:80D0:4908:75E8:B326:830D (talk) 13:21, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
Nominators often include links to external websites and other references in discussions on this page. It is usually best to provide such links using the inline URL syntax
[http://example.com] rather than using
<ref></ref> tags, because that keeps all the relevant information in the same place as the nomination without having to jump to this section, and facilitates the archiving process.
For the times when
<ref></ref> tags are being used, here are their contents:
