Status quo[edit]

  1. I'm actually going through the whole article in detail. This should have been done by someone (@Monet) before making the proposal for demotion. The main problems are the citations: some failed and needed to be replaced. There are two entire sections without a citation; this needs to be fixed before demotion, and I'm not likely to do it.

    There are also several dead links to JAXA/SELENE that I have now marked. Unfortunately, while there are archived copies of these pages, the archived copies do have the images, thus rendering the archives less than useful for our purposes. This also needs to be fixed before demoting the page in addition to the "citation needed" places that I marked. I have now completed my read-through of the page. See: [1] for my post-nomination changes. @Monet, CircularReasoning, and GeeJayK I'm disappointed that people think that moving a page to a cover story when there were/are obvious problems with it.

  • Sure this article covers the breadth of the counter arguments? I feel it's really good as a base but just making sure all pooular debunkings are here. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 01:45, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Yeah, agreed with above. Wouldn't be upset if it was demoted though. Correkt (covfefe) 18:31, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
  • It needs work, but it can get there soon. What I'd really like to see in general is evidence from everyone who votes for demotion that they have read the whole article by way of recent edits. Bongolian (talk) 04:59, 25 June 2021 (UTC)

    Not the best reason for demotion. Bongolian (talk) 20:52, 25 June 2021 (UTC)
