- @Pendright: G'day, Pendright. Good to hear from you, I hope you are well. Per your request, I have nominated this for FA now. The review page can be found here: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/WAVES/archive1. Please rewrite the nomination statement to suite your desired wording, as you see fit. Good luck!

- @AustralianRupert: It was good of you to nominate the article. I left your statement pretty much intact, while adding my own as well. I hope that’s okay. Thanks kindly for sharing your time and talent (again) on my behalf. I’m well and trust you are too. Regards! Pendright (talk) 20:38, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

for indicating the peer review at AWNB - too often milhist material about oz doesnt even get a mention - even if it is oz material, appreciated JarrahTree 10:07, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
- No worries, happy to help. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 10:18, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
- In the end even if none of the oz editing community turn up - it is at the least indication of the notification within the scope, that really I find quite impressive, as in cfd territory for instance whole sets of oz (or directly related) cats can and have in the past dissapeared without a murmur as no one even thinks of notification at project level.
