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, NoomBot 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.

Good article Hitman: Sniper
Good article Lara Croft Go

(GT nom) Believe this set is complete, with articles about each of Square Enix Montreal's four games. There aren't any other products or figures from this entity that would need/warrant separate articles. czar 01:01, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Good article "What You Want"

Good article "Lost in Paradise"
Contributor(s): DANNYmusicEDITOR, My love is love

I think you'll all agree this is a good topic. In the event that I retire and the band does in fact get their asses back in the studio and make another proper studio album, and I'm not here to make another GA on them, I can say that this good topic will definitely stand the test of time. Perhaps one day I will get the other two albums this way too, only one of the articles related to them is particularly difficult. I am crediting My love is love for "What You Want", as they promoted it in 2014 before I had much experience. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 19:31, 14 August 2017 (UTC) --dannymusiceditor Speak up! 19:31, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Oh, that's right, I didn't consider that this was part of it, that's totally my bad. Would you consider it anywhere close to GA? I have never done this before. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 00:35, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
  • No worries, and it is difficult for me to say as I have never worked on a tour article before. There is definitely good work there, as there already citations/references. I would look to tour-related good articles as a point of comparison if you decide to prepare the Evanescence Tour article for GAN. Aoba47 (talk) 02:34, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Macedonia (ancient kingdom)

5 articles
Featured article Macedonia (ancient kingdom)
Stag hunt mosaic, Pella.jpg

Good article History of Macedonia (ancient kingdom)

Good article Government of Macedonia (ancient kingdom)

Good article Rise of Macedon

Good article Ancient Macedonians

I am nominating Macedonia (ancient kingdom) as a Good Topic. The main article Macedonia (ancient kingdom) is now a Featured article, whereas History of Macedonia (ancient kingdom), Government of Macedonia (ancient kingdom), Ancient Macedonians, and Rise of Macedon are all Good articles. To the best of my knowledge all the images used in these articles are either public domain or otherwise licensed appropriately. I believe the articles also meet the basic criteria for a Good Topic at the very least. There are several other articles about Ancient Macedonia and Macedonians, although the articles listed above are more central to the theme of the state and kingdom. I would entertain the idea of including Ancient Macedonian language, Ancient Macedonian army, Antigonid Macedonian army, Argead dynasty, Antipatrid dynasty, and Antigonid dynasty perhaps at a later date, after any one of these should succeed in passing as Good article nominees. Any articles dealing specifically with Alexander the Great can be excluded from the topic, seeing how they are tied to only one monarch, whereas my topic is more about the kingdom itself. --Pericles of AthensTalk 17:08, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Pirates of the Caribbean films

Good article Pirates of the Caribbean films
Captain Jack Sparrow (5763467649).jpg
Good article The Curse of the Black Pearl
Good article Dead Man's Chest
Good article At World's End
Good article On Stranger Tides

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)
