Removing Featured lists in Wikipedia

This page is for the review and improvement of Wikipedia:Featured lists that may no longer meet the Featured list criteria. FLs should be kept at current standards regardless of when they were promoted. Any objections raised in the review must be actionable.

The FLC director, Giants2008, or his delegates, PresN and The Rambling Man, determine the exact timing of the process for each nomination. Nominations will last at least 14 days, and longer where changes are ongoing and it seems useful to continue the process. For a nomination to be kept, consensus must be reached that it still meets the criteria. Consensus is built among reviewers and nominators; the delegates determine whether there is consensus. A nomination will be removed from the list, archived and added to Former featured lists if, in the judgment of the director who considers a nomination and its reviews:

  • actionable objections have not been resolved; or
  • consensus to keep has not been reached; or
  • insufficient information has been provided by reviewers to judge whether the criteria have been met

Nominations may be closed earlier than the allotted two weeks if, in the judgment of the FLRC delegate, the list in the nomination:

  • has a clear consensus to merge or redirect to another article or list. This consensus may be shown in Articles for deletion, a discussion on the article's talk page, a discussion on the relevant WikiProject(s), or other community venues that present a tangible consensus to merge or redirect the article; or
  • contains a clear copyright violation and removal of the copyrighted material would severely degrade the quality of the list.

Do not nominate lists that have recently been promoted (such complaints should have been brought up during the candidacy period on Wikipedia:Featured list candidates), or lists that have recently survived a removal attempt – such nominations are likely to be removed summarily.

A bot will update the list talk page after the list has been kept or the nomination archived; the delay in bot processing can range from minutes to several days, and the {{FLRC}} template should remain on the talk page until the bot updates {{ArticleHistory}}. If a nomination is delisted, editors should take adequate time to work on resolving issues before re-nominating at Featured list candidates.

Nomination procedure

  • Place {{subst:FLRC}} on the talk page of the nominated list.
  • From the FLRC template, click on the red "initiate the nomination" link. You will see pre-loaded information; leave that text. If you are unsure how to complete a nomination, please post to the FLRC talk page for assistance.
  • Below the preloaded title, write your reason for nominating the list, sign with ~~~~ and save the page. Please note which of the featured list criteria that the list fails to meet.
  • Place {{Wikipedia:Featured list removal candidates/name of nominated article/archiveNumber}} at the top of the list of nominees on this page by first copying the above, clicking "edit" on the top of the page, and then pasting, making sure to add the name of the nominated article.
  • Notify relevant parties by adding {{subst:FLRCMessage|ArticleName|archive=# of archive page}} (for example, {{subst:FLRCMessage|List of Presidents of the United States|archive=1}}) to relevant talk pages (insert article name). Relevant parties include main contributors to the article (identifiable through article stats script), the editor who originally nominated the article for Featured List status (identifiable through the Featured List Candidate link in the Article Milestones), and any relevant WikiProjects (identifiable through the talk page banners, but there may be other Projects that should be notified). Leave a message at the top of the FLRC indicating whom you have notified and that notifications have been completed.

Lists nominated for removal

List of Vancouver Whitecaps FC players

Notified: Mikemor92, Nurmsook, Walter Görlitz, One95, Canuck25, WP:Football

I am nominating this for featured list removal because... the list is drastically out of date and the article hasn't been updated with regularity since 2012. There are players that have been retired for several years (e.g. Jay DeMerit) that are still listed as active. Jay eyem (talk) 04:03, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Support The primary editor has not kept it up-to-date, and it's not my strong suit. There may be someone who wants to maintain it, but it will take work to bring it back to FA status and keep it there. Walter Görlitz (talk) 04:36, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Delist looks like it's four years out of date. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:12, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

List of Prime Ministers of Canada by time in office

Notified: Arctic.Gnome, WP:Canada

This is a very old nomination that doesn't seem to pass modern standards. Firstly, it is a wp:cfork of List of Prime Ministers of Canada. The table can easy be tagged at the end of that list, and would make that FL nicer by providing a way to sort ministers. The referencing is also very, very thin, containing things like "He was only in power during an election campaign, making him one of two prime ministers, and perhaps the only one, who never served as a Member of Parliament or Senator during any point of his tenure as prime minister" that are neither referenced, nor decent examples of featured content. Nergaal (talk) 13:47, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

  • This nomination has received no attention at all, so I suggest it's closed as stale, some seven weeks later. The Rambling Man (talk) 18:11, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Delist. The referencing is very poor. Dudley Miles (talk) 18:37, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
