There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Request for update on FBI database[edit]

The project started in 2006 with a $425 million budget. After several delays, new leadership, a slightly bigger budget, and adoption of agile software development methodology,[2] it was completed under budget and was in use agency-wide on July 1 2012"

Current mention in article is outdated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:02, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Cleaned-up Image[edit]

I cleaned up the image a bit. The noise around the edges of the clipped badge bothered me. For some reason it wouldn't let me just upload the image, so here's the direct link:

Hi Trevor Sears. For changing images you can go directly to the image page on wiki commons. You can get there by clicking on the image, and then either a link to wikipedia commons or "more info". I have uploaded the fixed badge but it might take some time for it to appear on this page. Best, BananaCarrot152 (talk) 17:51, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

OK! Looks like it's updated now. Thanks for doing that, and thanks for the info! Trevor Sears (talk) 20:40, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Who goes where?[edit]

There is a minor typo in the 2nd paragraph of the Personnel section. It should be "69 agents who have died". It's locked otherwise I would do it. (talk) 18:05, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks for pointing this out. - SantiLak (talk) 18:58, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

I have made a couple changes (see diff), but this could use more eyes. The section may need to be edited, however, I don't see any reason to remove it. The NYT and WaPo have the same report indicating the two sources state Comey asked for more resources (i.e. personnel). Note the WaPo url appears to show that the title of their article may have been changed from "Comey sought more money for Russia probe days before he was fired officials say" to "Comey sought more resources for Russia probe days before he was fired by President Trump, officials say". -Location (talk) 05:17, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Heads up about RFC[edit]

There's an RFC about whether Wikipedia should mention anywhere that the potential firing of FBI Director Comey was publicly discussed by both Democratic and Republican politicians before Trump fired him. Anythingyouwant (talk) 16:34, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
