I've mominated this article because I reckon it's pretty decent, and also because Jack Sparrow is the main character in the Pirates of the Caribbean universe, so it makes sense that his article is one of our best. If this fails to become a featured article, could someone please make a list of what work needs to be done? ~ Hermione's Gone Asian 05:46, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
The article clearly does not fill in the FA criteria given above. The importance of an article's subject to the storyline does not matter here. El Chupacabra 12:43, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I think that this article should be a featured article since it's good and well written. Plus it makes sense and you can actually imagine the details of the Kraken's appearance in the film, and it doesn't make you bored reading it.Lily23 18:40, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Theodore Groves

I believe Groves is one character who deserves a spot to be recognized. He's one secondary/background character whose more stronger than many other British characters...especially with knowing more characters than just Jack(he's known Barbossa and Gibbs). Plus he's a British officer, and we don't have many Britishmen as featured articles, so why not pick Groves? --J Fan SigBlack Pearl, HMS Interceptor, Queen Anne's Revenge 11:10, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with CJSFan. Not many British Royal Navy characters have been featured. Groves is one of six returning characters in On Stranger Tides. And it is undeniable that, despite being a supporting character, Groves has come to be one of the most liked characters. ARC Trooper Tal 12:20, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
The article is well written, but we should add more references in it. UskokSea Queen, Nemesis 14:41, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
Added all references I could(not entirely sure how I had to do it in this case, but I've done it). --J Fan SigBlack Pearl, HMS Interceptor, Queen Anne's Revenge 16:03, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

As there have been no objections as well as approval of all available members of the POTC Wiki Brethren, I say this vote is complete. --J Fan SigBlack Pearl, HMS Interceptor, Queen Anne's Revenge 02:38, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hernán Cortés

Support

I believe Cortés had the potential to be a featured article. He was mentioned in the first film, his treasure is without doubt legendary, and also (in the expanded universe at least) had a part in one of Jack's first adventures. If chosen, he would become the second historical figure and the first conquistador to be chosen as a FA. OK, and another reason worth mentioning, Cortés may be the best featured article to use next month...with it being the 10th anniversary of CotBP and all. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 22:33, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Nobody disagrees, so I guess it's a go. I believe we have our new FA...at least when we update the Main Page and stuff. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 17:52, June 22, 2013 (UTC)
