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 it was 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.
Nominations urgently needing reviews
edit · history · watch · refresh

The following lists were nominated for removal more than 14 days ago and have had their review time extended because objections are still being addressed, the nomination has not received enough reviews, or insufficient information has been provided by reviewers to judge whether the criteria have been met. If you have not yet reviewed them, please take the time to do so:

Lists nominated for removal

List of works by Sax Rohmer

Notified: WikiProject Bibliographies

I am nominating this for featured list removal because it contains a section of entirely uncited information reliant on nothing but original research. An editor is insisting that it remains, which means that this article now fails the criteria necessary to be classed as one of WP's best. - The Bounder (talk) 11:25, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

List of films that received the Golden Film

Notified: Awards and prizes

This list suffers from severe neglect. It has not been updated in almost 8 years, and the lead needs to be completely rewritten as it is in a style that is no longer considered appropriate for featured lists. Specifically "This page is a list"... "This page shows,"... "In the following tables".... The tables themselves are also broken, and there has been an update tag since 2014... Mattximus (talk) 18:31, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Delist per nomination. Nowhere near our current standards. The Rambling Man (talk) 22:03, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist The list requires a near total overhaul to make current standards. Cowlibob (talk) 14:32, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

List of Olympic women's ice hockey players for the United States

Notified: WikiProject Ice Hockey

This list has sadly been neglected for about 6 years. Almost all the links have rotted away (12/23 links are dead, including all major links), and the list hasn't been updated to reflect the 2014 Olympics (!). The formatting of the tables and placement of images could also use work. This requires major work to bring up to FL status. Mattximus (talk) 17:42, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Delist unless nominator's comments are addressed. The Rambling Man (talk) 22:03, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist List needs significant amount of work on referencing, has not been updated for many years. Cowlibob (talk) 14:37, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Golden Eagle Award for Best Foreign Language Film (Russia)

Notified: Tomcat7, Awards and prizes

This page simply fell into disarray due to lack of upkeep. It has not been updated for almost 5 years, thus missing significant content. Almost all the links have rotted away, and I count 39 dead links. Which means the page is almost entirely unsourced and would take quite a bit of effort to properly source them again and updated the table. Mattximus (talk) 17:37, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Delist sadly the mass of dead links and the foreign-language sourcing required to bring it back up to date is way beyond me. Not an FL by current standards. Maybe the film project could help? The Rambling Man (talk) 11:37, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Delist Important list but very poor sourcing, not up to date, lead needs to be revamped. Cowlibob (talk) 12:12, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
