    • Judge's comment: If the article weren't still under development I would approve. Please publish the article if it is indeed ready. Cllewr 02:34, 2 September 2005 (UTC)
    • Judge's comment: I left a note on the talk page about the article, but as it is still under development I will hold off on the approval. Mrmiscellanious 02:37, 2 September 2005 (UTC)
    • Judge's comment: It looked ready to me, I am guessing they just forgot to publish, so I went ahead and published it. I've reviewed it and vote to approve and grant a joker. StuRat 04:21, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

      • Judge's comment: This azertus article may be disqualified, if we can't find a Dutch-speaking editor to be a judge in a few days. If this happens, they are welcome to submit it, or any other article, translated into any language for which we have a judge. StuRat 15:27, 1 September 2005 (UTC)
      • Judge's comment: I reviewed the article for preliminary approval, (awaiting a Dutch-speaking judge for final approval) but none of the source links appeared to be functional, so I can't approve it. StuRat 23:05, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
        I've fixed the last 2 sources (the links change when they're moved to the archive). The first source was "quicknews" by a newspaper. They place all their (paper-)articles in their archive, but the quicknews (exclusive to the website) doesn't seem to be saved, so I removed it. --azertus 09:35, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
        Judge's note: I've re-reviewed, but now both sources point to a page labeled "Video voor iedereen", which is not the title listed in the article for either, so I still can't recommend preliminary approval. If this site keeps moving things around, perhaps you need to find another, more reliable, source ? Let me now when you want me to take another look. StuRat 15:44, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
        Judge's note: Ok, I think I see what's going on now. The first time you follow the link it redirects you to a page that says something to the effect of "you haven't defined your screen size, please select below". When you select a screen size, it doesn't take you to the source, however. But, by going back to the article and clicking the source link again, it then finds the correct source. The author should add a note in Dutch under sources to explain this behaviour to the reader, then ask for article approval again. StuRat 15:44, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
      • Judge's comment: Article reviewed and preliminary approval granted. Final approval depends on finding a Dutch-speaking judge. StuRat 17:15, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
      • Judge's comment: I approved this article - Puckly 15:49, 10 September 2005 (UTC)
