Hey. Multiple points.[edit]

Hey SchroCat. I just saw that Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of awards and nominations received by Lorde/archive3 was promoted, and even though my initial comments had been carried out by the nominator, I've just seen that as a result I had issues with how the new lead was written, but the nomination has been promoted before I got a chance to go back to the nomination as I've been away for 3 days (a notice was on my talk), and thus only just seen it. I was on the way to supporting, but I still feel that the lead has multiple issues and has been promoted prematurely (was only nominated on April 18) and with very little comment and very little support (what I mean is, only three supports), and, as such, I would not have supported until further work was carried out on the lead. This leads me on to me next point. My own nomination, Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of songs recorded by Ariana Grande/archive1, has been open since March 8 (two months tomorrow), has six supports, and has had all issues presented by Crisco, Rambling and Harrias addressed, and yet prior to today, had no activity between April 26 and yesterday, despite all issues by those three editors being implemented, which I would have thought would have resulted in the list being promoted at some point since April 26. Which leads me back to Lorde's nomination, as I'm surprised at how quickly that one was pushed through, with very little input from other editors, and when my comments hadn't been fully addressed.  — ₳aron 12:14, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Aaron, I didn't see your part thread was still ongoing (and I wouldn't have checked a reviewer's talk page anyway). It's not the end of the world: FLs and FAs are not set in stone, so you can still continue the discussion on the talk page, or dip in and edit yourself if you feel like it. In terms of the Grande list, as I've already told you, I have recused myself from delegate action on this, so it's up to PresN or Giants to take the appropriate steps when closing. Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 12:55, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. But if I was to edit the lead myself, I think I would be changing it too much from what was originally deemed as worthy of promotion. I'll ping Giants2008 and PresN save me copying and pasting and explaining two more times.  — ₳aron 13:46, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
There's no golden handcuff on any form of the article: you can edit any of them, even if it is recently promoted. Discuss the changes with the nominator on the article's talk page: he'll see that you're acting purely in good faith for the benefit of the article and you can agree on the changes there. Feel free to point this thread out to them if it helps. - SchroCat (talk) 14:00, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
I'll take a look at Grande today or tomorrow; I wanted to wait until I had enough time to read through the list before deciding to promote. --PresN 14:51, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
