I don't know much about whales, but this topic looks pretty together, and it includes 5 FAs. The Weak points are Baleen whale and Balaenoptera omurai, but I think this is justified because the former just serves the role of a list for the subject, and the latter is a newly found species that has no more information to put in an article. --Arctic Gnome 00:49, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Conditional support. I think the main topic should have a bit more references and more content first. Hurricanehink (talk) 00:55, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Object Humpback whale does not meet current FA criteria; Right whale barely passed a recent WP:FAR, the articles are inconsistently named (is whale capitalized or not?), so besides the three strong FAs, the rest of the topic is not in good shape. Why not point out to Wikipedia:WikiProject Cetaceans how close this could be to a featured topic, and encourage them to bring the other articles to at least GA standard, and cite the older FAs before they come up at WP:FAR? The topics that are legitimate *featured* topics got that way because of involved Projects or editors (usually one or two; for example, Saffron) - has the Cetacean Project been consulted about improving this category ?
