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 procedureEdit

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 objectingEdit

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.

The newly created CMLL World Mini-Estrella Championship has been passed for GA and can be added to this Feature Topic to make sure it is comprehensive. MPJ-DK (talk) 02:02, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Comment Support: Something strange is going on here. CMLL World Mini-Estrella Championship is not newly created and did not recently pass GA, but rather it is already a FL and already part of this topic since the topic's creation in 2017; it's already the top article in the right column that you just added it to a second time. Did you mean to add a different article? -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 03:24, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Bryanrutherford0 - what is going on is a brain fart on my part, I copied the link, but forgot to change "Mini" to "Micro". I am asking to add the CMLL World Micro-Estrellas Championship... and and I'm apparently a barely functioning idiot at times. Fixed the nomination, glad you are on the ball.MPJ-DK (talk) 04:39, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
Got it, this looks like an appropriate addition to the topic, at GA quality. Supporting. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 15:12, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Third Margaret-related article just got promoted to FL and with the main article being a featured article I think it's time "Margaret" is a featured topic. --ArturSik (talk) 17:32, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

  • Support per nom. KingSkyLord (talk | contribs) 01:59, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Support - hits the criteria and topic looks to match the format of other similar topics. MPJ-DK (talk) 02:05, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Good topic nominationsEdit

Battles of the Uganda–Tanzania WarEdit

17 articles
  Battles of the Uganda–Tanzania War
  Invasion of Kagera
  Battle of Mutukula
  Battle of Simba Hills
  Battle of Gayaza Hills
  Battle of Masaka
  Battle of Tororo
  Battle of Lukaya
  Battle of Sembabule
  Battle of Entebbe
  Fall of Kampala
  Battle of Jinja
  Battle of Bombo
  Battle of Lira
  Battle of Karuma Falls
  Battle of Bondo
  Air campaign

I am nominating Battles of the Uganda–Tanzania War to become a Good Topic. One of the member articles is an FA, and the rest, including the mother article, are all GA. I have spent over a year researching this topic with User:Applodion and I do believe that I've exhausted all potential article options, and thus I think it's reasonable to say this selection of articles is comprehensive for the topic. If accepted, it would become one of the few Africa-related Good Topics and the second only African military history good topic (after the Mauritius campaign of 1809–1811). -Indy beetle (talk) 14:11, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Getting the process going as Yo (album) became a Good Article on 23 September. Armbrust The Homunculus 16:10, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

  • Support: Looks like a straightforward addition, and the Discography featured list has been updated to cover this, as well. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 16:17, 28 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Aoba47 (talk) 01:03, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Support main article on the topic has been updatd to include "Yo" and it has the appropriate quality too. I suspect another subtopic coming at some point? MPJ-DK (talk) 02:08, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

The 2016–17 Formula E season was the third season of the FIA Formula E Championship, a motor racing championship for single-seater electrically powered cars.

Lucas di Grassi for the Audi Sport ABT team won the Drivers' Championship, finishing 24 points ahead of his nearest rival Sébastien Buemi. e.Dams-Renault successfully defended their title in the Teams' Championship for the third consecutive season, using the Spark Renault Z.E 16.

Have spent the best part of almost three years ensuring all articles within the topic are of the necessary quality and am confident this in compliance with the GAT guidelines. MWright96 (talk) 15:07, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Support: Well-defined topic, and it looks like all the races are present at GA quality. Excellent work! -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 16:55, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment should it be New York City ePrix per the target article? Kees08 (Talk) 03:45, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Topic removal candidatesEdit

Red Dead RedemptionEdit

4 articles
  Red Dead Redemption
  List of Red Dead Redemption characters
  John Marston
  Undead Nightmare

Sadly, I am nominating this good topic for removal for it not being criterion 1.d. ("There are no obvious gaps (missing or low-quality articles) in the topic."). This is becuase List of Red Dead Redemption characters and John Marston (Red Dead) are not WP:FL or WP:GA respectively and encompass the topic. (pinging contributors @Rhain and Czar:)  Spy-cicle💥  Talk? 19:26, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Remove per nominator, it's not a complete topic of GA/FA/FL articles. MPJ-DK (talk) 02:09, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Remove per nom, no sign that either article is in the process of being improved. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 03:30, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Comment - In Lane's case I would argue that the final tropical cyclone report is not yet out (see Page 1), since the CPHC has not yet completed its analyses of Lane in the central Pacific where it peaked.Jason Rees (talk) 15:30, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
It is out now. Nova Crystallis (Talk) 18:23, 9 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Remove, even if some allowance for timing was made for Lane, Hurricane Willa is not a GA at this point. MPJ-DK (talk) 02:14, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
