Now, I like a challenge, and one Good Topic that has been on my radar for years is Pink Floyd. A lot of articles have been taken to GA and FA already, but there's plenty more to do and a lot of the remainder can be tackled by the same core 4-5 book sources. The articles above are the ones I think we could not possibly meet the GT criteria without - the core article itself, the band members, all the major albums (I've left off a few compilations like A Collection of Great Dance Songs but that might be a mistake), songs that were either major hits or have achieved major critical acclaim, and essential lists. My question really is, what else are we missing? The book has a lot more content, but to be frank some of the individual song articles on the lesser known albums don't really meet WP:NSONG and could be reduced to redirects (though doubtless somebody will moan). Paging the Wikipedia:WikiProject Pink Floyd regulars @Parrot of Doom:, @Pigsonthewing:, @John:, @Yeepsi: for comment. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 17:28, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Peer review Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite

I've been working on getting these articles up to GAs for the past couple years, and this will be my first attempt at a GT nomination. Before I proceed, I'd greatly appreciate any feedback/constructive criticism about the articles or the topic as a whole. Thank you! Wani (talk) 15:58, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Infinite has to be included in the topic, since it's a part of this series; as it's unreleased, per WP:FT? it has to be an "audited article", which means a completed PR and as solid as it can get without the game being released. It also needs to get bumped up to GA+ within 3 months of release. --PresN 16:36, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
Okay. I already have a completed peer review for Infinite. Which icon do I use for it in the topic box? Wani (talk) 16:45, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
Peer review --PresN 17:06, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
Fixed. Wani (talk) 17:13, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
@PresN: Should I just go ahead and list the nomination, or should I wait a week or so for more feedback? Wani (talk) 02:02, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
@Wani: You'll need to make a Book (sorry, forgot about that- just check any other VG topic for an example) but then I think you're good to go for nominating. --PresN 14:46, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Spanish conquest of the Maya

5 articles
Good article Spanish conquest of the Maya
Lienzo de Tlaxcala Tecpan Atitlan.gif
Good article Chiapas
Featured article Guatemala
Featured article Petén
Good article Yucatán

This became a Good Topic just over two years ago, and I have since then been steadily increasing the geographical area covered by Spanish Conquest articles. Honduras and El Salvador both had a "Maya fringe", although the majority of the territory now included in these countries was non-Maya. The Spanish conquest of Honduras article in particular details the conquest of Maya parts of the country, with named Maya leaders, battles etc. The Spanish conquest of El Salvador article mentions the presence of Maya groups in the conquered area, but without any detail. Both of these articles have passed GA. Should either (or both) of these articles be included in the topic? Thanks, Simon Burchell (talk) 08:54, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

17th century papal conclaves

Never done this before, so the template syntax is causing problems here, but I created a book at Book:17th century papal conclaves, which lists all of the articles that would be a part of the proposed topic. I've done 4/12 of the 17th century ones to GA, and I should have two ready for GAN within the week, bringing it up to 50% that are at GA or in progress.

Realizing that, I supposed its about time to ask questions on the technical nature of the criteria. My main question here is re: the lead article. Papal conclave is already at GA status, and seems like a good lead for the topic. In terms of feedback, do people think that would be a good lead or would it be necessary to make a featured list of the 17th century ones? @Ritchie333 and PresN: pinging the two of you since you seem to be the most active on this board. TonyBallioni (talk) 23:33, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Having reviewed the Papal conclave article, I think that a list article of 17th century papal conclaves (hence implying that a per-century division is appropriate for other papal conclaves) would really clean up and sharpen Template:Papal elections and conclaves from 1061. Seems like 10-15ish per (completed) century is a really good number per sub-topic. On the other hand, List of papal conclaves already exists and is already FL, so that might be a good parent article as well, even though it extends well beyond this specific century. Do we have precedent of one "list" article ever being used for two or more, potential or actual, constituent, discrete and non-overlapping featured/good topics? Jclemens (talk) 21:08, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Just using an expanded list as the lead is not uncommon; starting from the top of WP:FT I see Grade I listed buildings in Runcorn, whose lead list is actually about all of the listed buildings in the area, not just Grade I ones; it potentially could also be used for e.g. a topic on Grade II buildings in the area. I couldn't find anywhere where two topics actually used the same list as the lead, though that's likely just an artifact of how few areas actually have multiple topics. I believe prior "precedent", as far as it stretches, would be that you could use List of papal conclaves as the lead list for multiple single-century topics, though if you actually ever got every conclave promoted the topics would all get merged into a single mega-topic, as happened to the German Battleships FT. --PresN 02:33, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
I would suggest using List of papal elections, rather than creating a by-century sub-list, which is perhaps unlikely to pass FL as it risks being regarded as an unnecessary content fork. BencherliteTalk 07:48, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Thanks all for the advice. Never done this before, so the help is appreciated. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:50, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Group 3 elements

I haven't looked too much into the process, but could Group 3 elements become a good topic? The main issue I see is that there is no consistent definition. It could include Scandium, Yttrium, Lanthanum, and Actinium, or Scandium, Yttrium, Lutetium, and Lawrencium. Or all of them? What about Unbiunium? --Hameltion (talk, contribs) 18:00, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
