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)

Does anyone have any ideas about this? @The Rambling Man:, @FlightTime:, @Dr. Blofeld:? Does anyone even like Pink Floyd these days? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:57, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Mabbett does! :-)♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:46, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
@Ritchie333: Are you asking if we should create article's of their less notable works ? - FlightTime (open channel) 23:51, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Not so much that as - is the list above going to be suitable for a good topic ie: if I took every article (that's not at least already there) to GA / FL, and then nominated the lot for GT, would somebody say "aha, what about 'x'"? Everything in Category:Top-importance Pink Floyd articles absolutely has to go in, but for Category:High-importance Pink Floyd articles we've got Pink Floyd World Tour 1968 which isn't particularly important, and Bob Klose who is only a footnote in Floyd's history. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:49, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
It would be easier if you just focused on their studio albums like other topics have done at Wikipedia:Good topics/Music#Discographies. That removes any possibility of any articles missing, and gives you less articles to work with, improving the chance of the topic passing its nomination.-- 21:51, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
They've been—naturally—extensively bootlegged; that article should probably be in there (or is it a list?—if so and IRC then it should be beefed up). >SerialNumber54129...speculates 12:20, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Central Link light rail stationsEdit

20 articles
  Central Link stations
  University of Washington station
  Capitol Hill station
  Westlake station (Sound Transit)
  University Street station
  Pioneer Square station
  International District/Chinatown station
  Stadium station (Sound Transit)
  SODO station (Sound Transit)
  Beacon Hill station (Sound Transit)
  Mount Baker station
  Columbia City station
  Othello station
  Rainier Beach station
  Tukwila International Boulevard station
  SeaTac/Airport station
  Angle Lake station

I've been working on getting these station articles up to GA for just over three years now, and will soon be ready to nominate the topic. I chose to go with the line article as the lead, rather than the list of stations, since the other stations are basically streetcar stops and are a long distance away from the closest Central Link station. Would that be able to pass GTC? SounderBruce 07:10, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

@SounderBruce: I think so, as its more narrowly focused on just this line, though I'd also pipe the articles like so:
20 articles
  Central Link stations
  University of Washington
  Capitol Hill
  University Street
  Pioneer Square
  International District/Chinatown
  Beacon Hill
  Mount Baker
  Columbia City
  Rainier Beach
  Tukwila International Boulevard
  Angle Lake

Dhammakaya movement seriesEdit

I'd like to consult about submitting the articles about the Dhammakaya movement as a good series. There's a template with all the articles here. There are four articles which aren't GA yet, and I'd like to ask your opinion as to whether it'd be required to bring them all to GA level. Specifically, I'm in doubt whether the articles Luang Por Dhammajayo and Dhammakaya Movement UK have GA potential. If i don't include these two articles, do you think the series can still be submitted?--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 20:13, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Any thoughts, PresN?--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 20:02, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

Sonic Gems CollectionEdit

4 articles
  Sonic Gems Collection

  Sonic CD

  Sonic the Fighters

  Sonic R

This topic would comprise articles about games that were featured in the 2005 video game compilation Sonic Gems Collection. The compilation's three "featured" games are all GAs. However, there are nine other bonus games in the compilation, but the only one that is beyond B-class is Sonic Spinball (an FA). My question is, would this not be able to become a good topic unless the other articles are worked up to standards? JOEBRO64 00:54, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Every single game in the collection would have to be included, including the unlockabables and the Japanese exclusive games to satisfy the criteria for completeness, 1(d). 1(c) would also be an issue at present, as there is no navbox or category that includes all of them.-- 01:22, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Sounder commuter rail stationsEdit

15 articles
  Sounder commuter rail stations
  Everett Station
  Mukilteo station
  Edmonds station (Washington)
  King Street Station
  Tukwila station
  Kent station (Sound Transit)
  Auburn station (Sound Transit)
  Sumner station
  Puyallup station
  Tacoma Dome Station
  South Tacoma station
  Lakewood station
  Tillicum station
  DuPont station (Sound Transit)

Quick question about this topic I'm working on: the last two stations aren't scheduled to open until 2036, and have extremely limited information available. Would they still need to go through peer review? SounderBruce 05:25, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Not sure why those would need their own article, could be wrapped up into Sound commuter rail article for 15 years or so until there is enough coverage to fork? Kees08 (Talk) 06:30, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
