New featured article

I, 12Lightningtheif, Think that a big, well known section shouldn't nominate a big article. We should nominate a page most people don't look at, like the Oracle Turret, who is not even mentioned on the turrets page. Most people would vote for caroline because they like that character, or wheatley. Thats not me. I vote for the Oracle Turret. –12|Lightning|theif: Zap! 01:20, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

The featured article has been changed not too long ago, but I agree that this should be the next one — Wind 05:39, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

This Article is big ,informative and has lots of diagrams showing the evolution of this character. It also thoroughly describes her personality and her backstory. I vote for GLaDOS

I can't really argue because it's my article. I just wanted to see if you all think that it worths a featuring. I think it passes the criteria.
