Crécy campaign

On 12 July 1346, nine years after the start of the Hundred Years' War, an English army landed in Normandy, taking the French by surprise. The English marched south and then east, devastating the countryside, until the French attempted to halt them at Caen. The town was stormed in a morning and the English continued towards Paris, burning villages to within 2 miles of the city walls. Confronted by a French army they headed north, fought their way across the River Somme at Banchetaque, and turned to face the French in a prepared position at Crécy, where the French suffered a major defeat. The English then besieged the strongly fortified port of Calais; the French were unable to either relieve or supply it, and it fell after 11 months.

Edward III's famous campaign, the three significant military clashes during it and the 11-month siege with which it ended. --Gog the Mild (talk) 09:49, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

@GamerPro64 and Juhachi: The name of the lead article, and so of the proposed featured topic, has been changed - to Crécy campaign. I am unsure what, if any, changes need to be made to the nomination to reflect this. So, rather than risk making a hash of things, I am leaving it and flagging it up here. If there are things which I need to do, I would be grateful if you could let me know. Thanks. Gog the Mild (talk) 13:25, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Support: Well-defined topic, with GA or better articles covering the four major engagements of the campaign. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 13:40, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Support: Comprehensive nomination in that it presents the four major confronts on French soil that are covered in the main article. So it's the full set, all at GA or above. Maybe just change to "Battle of Crécy" for the sake of consistency with the articles' text? Nitpicking, I know. RetiredDuke (talk) 21:10, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Well spotted. Done. And thank you. Gog the Mild (talk) 21:25, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Question: @Armbrust: Should the topic be renamed since the main article's title has changed? NoahTalk 16:00, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
It is, it is. Done. Gog the Mild (talk) 00:18, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Also, I support on its comprehensiveness. NoahTalk 22:49, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

1988 Pacific hurricane season

  Tropical Depression Seventeen-E
  Tropical Storm Miriam

All storms of the 1988 Pacific hurricane season have become good articles, so I have nominated this for good topic. I did a brief run-through of all four articles and found them to be in good shape. As such, I think this merits good topic. NoahTalk 02:58, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Support. Fixed the dead links, should be good to go. ~ KN2731 {t · c} 04:05, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Support: Well-defined topic and scope, with all articles in the category at GA. The lead section of the overview article could stand to spell out the notable storms for the year. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 23:07, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
    @Bryanrutherford0: I added in information regarding deaths... Just note that this year was not very notable. Only 3 storms caused deaths and none had damage totals severe enough that they were reported to global organizations. NoahTalk 23:36, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
    Right, I just mean that those three storms' names should probably be stated and wikilinked in the lead section; Seventeen-E/Debby isn't currently named or linked, as far as I can see. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 12:35, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
    @Bryanrutherford0: Included something about Joan and Debby being successful Atlantic crossovers and stated what their names were after they did so. NoahTalk 21:57, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

A family of eurypterids, one of the most diverse, numerous and longest lasting of them. I'm not sure what to do with the genus Unionopterus (also a GA), which may or may not belong to this clade. Super Ψ Dro 12:24, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Support: Well-defined scope, with all the genera covered at GA quality. I'd leave out Unionopterus unless and until it is more clearly established to belong to this group by subsequent studies. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 13:33, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Okay, then I won't include it. Super Ψ Dro 14:05, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

All articles have been passed to GA status throughout the past 2 years. --Cartoon network freak (talk) 05:44, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Support: Seems to include all the singles that made it into the final round at GA quality, with a FL main article. As a comment, I think the songs in the topic box are out of order, since, according to the list, "Zaleilah" should come before "It's My Life". Also, I find it confusing for the sequence to run across rows rather than down columns; I would arrange the entries the other way. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 15:28, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

London station group

The London station group is a group of 18 railway stations served by the National Rail network in central London. Most are terminal stations, either serving major national services or local commuter routes. A small number are through-stations that are considered terminals for ticketing purposes. All current stations in the group fall within London fare zone 1. A ticket marked "London Terminals" allows travel to any station in the group via any permitted route, as determined by the National Routeing Guide.

We had an abortive attempt at a good topic a few months back, because I'd only taken the current set of London station group entries to GA, and some of you wanted the entire lot. Well, with great assistance from Amakuru, we've done it. Everything ever legitimately classed as a London terminal station, past and present. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 14:39, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

This topic comprises all of the torpedo cruisers built by the Italian Regia Marina from the 1870s to the 1890s. They are in most cases, experimental vessels, and all were superseded by later light cruisers that provided the same torpedo armament with better speed, armor, and gun armament. Many of the vessels were either in reserve or scrapped outright by the time Italy fought its first major war of the period, the Italo-Turkish War of 1911–1912, but a few of the vessels saw action, primarily as gunfire support vessels. Several were still in service during World War I, albeit mostly in secondary roles like minelayers and training ships, and all were discarded in the early 1920s. Thanks to all who take the time to review the topic. Parsecboy (talk) 11:54, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
