Featured and Good topics in Wikipedia

This star symbolizes the featured topic candidates on Wikipedia.
GA icon symbolizing Good topic candidates on Wikipedia.
A featured topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles).

A good topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles) with a less stringent quality threshold than a featured topic.

This page is for the nomination of potential featured and good topics. See the good and featured topic criteria for criteria on both types of topic. If you would like to ask any questions about your topic and the featured topic process before submitting it, visit Wikipedia talk:Featured topic candidates.

Before nominating a topic, nominators may wish to receive feedback by listing it at Featured topic questions. Nominators must be sufficiently familiar with the subject matter and sources to deal with objections during the FTC/GTC process. If you nominate something you have worked on, note it as a self-nomination. Nominators who are not significant contributors to the articles of the topic should consult regular editors of the articles prior to nomination. Nominators are expected to respond positively to constructive criticism and to make an effort to address objections promptly.

The featured topic director, GamerPro64, or his delegate Juhachi, determine the timing of the process for each nomination. For a nomination to be promoted to FT or GT status, consensus must be reached for a group to be promoted to featured or good topic status. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates topic and archived.

Nomination procedure

To create a new nomination use the form below (e.g., Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Saffron/archive1) and click the "Create new nomination" button.

Once the nomination page is created, remember to transclude it in the appropriate section below, to leave nomination templates on the talk pages of the articles nominated for the topic, and to create appropriate books (see Book:Jupiter for a good example). For detailed instructions on how to nominate topics or add articles to existing topics, see Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Nomination procedure.


Supporting and objecting

Please review all the articles of the nominated topic with the featured topic criteria in mind before deciding to support or oppose a nomination. Following the creation of the book, Cyberbot I will create a book report (see example) containing details about cleanup issues (only those that have been flagged with cleanup templates, so it may not pick up everything), and various tools to inspect external links or resolve disambiguation pages. It can be a good idea to check the report and inspect links to see if certain articles need some cleanup (doing this before the nomination is even better).

  • To edit nominations in order to comment on them, you must click the "edit" link to the right of the article nomination on which you wish to comment (not the overall page's "edit this page" link).
  • If you approve of a nomination, write '''Support''' followed by your reasons.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write '''Oppose''' or '''Object''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a specific rationale that can be addressed. If nothing can be done in principle to fix the source of the objection, the objection may be ignored.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

For a topic to be promoted to featured topic status, consensus must be reached that it meets the criteria. If enough time passes without objections being resolved (at least one week), nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. Nominations will stay here for ten days if there is unanimous consent, or longer if warranted by debate.

Tuvalu at the Olympics

Tuvalu has not participated in many Olympics, and has participated in Summer Olympics at that. Not only has no one medaled, they have never made it past the first round in any event. This is primarily due to poor facilities and training.

Merged the flagbearers article into the lead article, expanded the NOC article into a GA, and expanded all the individual Olympic articles into GAs --Kees08 (Talk) 03:12, 21 January 2018 (UTC)


Support - looks great thank you! 87Fan (talk) 18:19, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment A few minor issues I found:
  • the topic should include a book page (currently does not)
    • The book tool is currently undergoing massive changes, and I am unable to get it to work. I noticed several other topics did not have a book, so I assumed they had issues too. Is it still possible to make a book with the tool in the state it is in? Kees08 (Talk) 20:20, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
      • I think the books themselves are not as important as the talk page reports that show how the articles in it are. Anyway, made that for you. igordebraga 01:45, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
        • Oh...duh. Thanks, I will do that next time. I will address your other comments later. Kees08 (Talk) 04:59, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
  • please standardize the categories for the pages - for example some articles are part of the 'Tuvalu at the Olympics' category, and some are not. Shouldn't they all be?
    • In {{:Category:Tuvalu at the Summer Olympics by year}} (which contains all three individual Summer Olympics articles), it says "The main article for this category is Tuvalu at the Summer Olympics." I believe the categories are correct based on that, did you have any thoughts? Kees08 (Talk) 19:50, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Sounds good to me - it felt like things were uneven but if you've taken a look and it makes sense, I'm good with that. Thank you!! 87Fan (talk) 16:01, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
  • not sure why the 2016 article doesn't have a table of contents when the 2008 & 2012 do? (maybe it has too few sections?)
    • Too few of sections, requires three. Kees08 (Talk) 20:21, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
  • the 2020 Tokyo Olympics are listed in the 'Tuvalu at the Olympics' page but there's nothing in the article that talks about the 2020 Olympics - it's not clear if they've even qualified? I realize this probably should have been addressed in the GA review of the page but I figured this is good a time as any to address that too. Thanks! 87Fan (talk) 17:45, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Technically, no one has qualified for Tokyo yet... it's still over two years away. Not one competitor is qualified, and won't be for at least another year to 18 months. Courcelles (talk) 23:37, 26 January 2018 (UTC)


Saint Kitts and Nevis at the Olympics

Good article 2005 FA Cup Final
Contributor(s): Lemonade51, PeeJay2K3, VEO15

I'm nominating this as a complete topic, an account of the rivalry between Arsenal and Manchester United. The articles selected for this topic are ones which have shaped and defined the rivalry, hence why the 1979 FA Cup Final and 1948 FA Charity Shield are omitted. It begins with the Old Trafford brawl and ends with the 2005 FA Cup Final. --Lemonade51 (talk) 19:53, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Support because this has gone quiet and I can't see any issues! 94.15.181.120 (talk) 16:29, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: Well, the main topic and games that fit the category, seems complete. (no need for the clubs themselves as it's only about a part of their history) igordebraga 18:57, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

Featured article Love. Angel. Music. Baby.
Good article Harajuku Lovers Live
Good article The Sweet Escape
Good article This Is What the Truth Feels Like

I am nominating this topic due to it failing to meet criterion 3.b with You Make It Feel Like Christmas not becoming a Good Article several months after the album came out. Aoba47 (talk) 18:20, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Demote since YMIFLC isn't a GA unless that changes anytime soon (which I doubt will happen) Snuggums (talk / edits) 02:31, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

I am nominating this topic due to it failing to meet criterion 3.b with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales not becoming a Good Article three months after the movie came out. GamerPro64 16:36, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

While it probably will be easier next month, when the Blu-Ray arrives, will work on solving this quickly. Edited Dead Men Tell No Tales a bit and put it on the GA - you're welcome to review it in any case, @GamerPro64:. igordebraga 18:48, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
