Removing Good and Featured Topics in Wikipedia

If you feel a topic on Wikipedia:Featured topics or a topic on Wikipedia:Good topics should no longer be there, then this is the place to nominate it for demotion. Only topics that do not adhere to the good or featured topic criteria should be listed. Objections raised must be actionable.

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

Once a topic has been nominated on this page for ten days, it will be removed from the list of featured topics if the consensus is to remove, and added to the list of former featured topics. All discussions will be logged at Wikipedia:Featured topic removal candidates/archive.

Nomination procedure

  1. Place {{FTRCmain|ExampleTopicName|X}} or {{GTRCmain|ExampleTopicName|X}} (as appropriate) on the talk page of the main article of the topic, where X is the desired archive number.
  2. From there, click on the "add a comment" link.
  3. Add ===ExampleTopicName=== and the topic's box copied from Wikipedia:Featured topics/ExampleTopicName.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the topic. Note which of the featured topic criteria that the topic fails to meet.
  5. Place {{Wikipedia:Featured topic removal candidates/ExampleTopicName/archiveX}} (again, where X is the desired archive number) 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.

Supporting and objecting

Please read all the articles of the nominated topic fully before deciding to support or oppose a nomination.

  • 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 to remove, write '''Delist''' followed by your reasons.
  • If you oppose of a nomination to remove, write '''Keep''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a justification why the topic does not violate the listed criteria.
  • If you want to delay the nomination while another nomination takes place, such as adding new items to the topic or nominating member articles for Good Article status, write '''HOLD''' with a link to the relevant nomination and this nomination will not be closed until after the other one.
  • To withdraw a support or objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

Consensus must be reached for a topic to be removed from featured status. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. As a general guide, new topics will remain on here for at least 10 days to allow for comment, and must have at least 4 remove votes (although consensus and lack of major objections are also important) for removal.

I am nominating this for Good Topic removal since not only has Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 failed its GA review, but Thor: Ragnarok is also not on GA level and hasn't even been nominated one month after its February 3, 2018 deadline. Snuggums (talk / edits) 23:21, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

For the record Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a current GAN and Thor: Ragnarok has until one month after its March 6, 2018 home media release.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 00:16, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
It looks like this misled me for Thor, but we'll see how GOTG2 comes out. Snuggums (talk / edits) 00:19, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
No, it needs to reach GA status 3 months after the films' theatrical release (not one month after home media release). Armbrust The Homunculus 09:29, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
I recall it being granted this extension to allow for the plethora of additional information that usually follows the home media release. @Favre1fan93 and Adamstom.97: they might be able to better answer this.—TriiipleThreat (talk) 10:09, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi all. Yes, there was previous discussion to adjust GT retention until 1 month after physical home media release. The initial discussion occurred at the Age of Ultron talk page here with the directors of the FT project, GamerPro64 and Juhachi, and then the discussion moved over the the Featured topic candidates talk page here, where again, it was determined that these films would have 1 month after their physical home media release to be nominated for GA. To the removal nom, GotG Vol. 2 has since been renominated for GA after its first failed GA, Homecoming is good to go, and Ragnarok will be nominated by April 6, as it's physical home media is releasing March 6. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 18:29, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
In that case, I'll update the retention subpage accordingly to avoid further discrepancies. Snuggums (talk / edits) 21:02, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you SNUGGUMS. Should the "1 month after home media release" retention also be added to the prose at the top of Wikipedia:Featured topic criteria#Retention, so we don't encounter this again for the next MCU film (and I guess this would apply for the James Bond films and Pirates of the Caribbean films too)? - Favre1fan93 (talk) 21:28, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
I definitely would support including that, but will let FTC coordinators answer whether it should be added. Snuggums (talk / edits) 22:16, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Featured article Gwen Stefani albums
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)
  • Thank you for the comments. Aoba47 (talk) 19:32, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment – I can't promise anything, and nor should my word make any difference, but YMIFLC is currently an article I plan to expand in my sandbox and then eventually nominate for GAR. Carbrera (talk) 05:52, 28 February 2018 (UTC).
  • Good luck with it! Even if this gets demoted, it can always be brought back up later when your work on the article is completed and it is put through the GAN process. Aoba47 (talk) 06:13, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Good article The Curse of the Black Pearl

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)

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)

  • Demote as the GAN for Dead Men Tell No Tales has failed. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:43, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Demote per Snuggums. Armbrust The Homunculus 09:24, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Demote I am sure you will get it to GA, you can just renom it then and we can make it a GT again! Kees08 (Talk) 07:56, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
