FT criteria clarificationEdit

For anybody watching this page I would appreciate some further input at Wikipedia_talk:Featured_topic_criteria#Intro_para_as_requirement_for_FT. Nergaal (talk) 19:16, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Alkali metalsEdit

Is Category:Wikipedia featured topics Alkali metals featured content supposed to exist? It has a couple of members, but the page doesn't exist. SpinningSpark 15:55, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

That was an oversight on my part. Took care of it. GamerPro64 17:10, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Topic criteraEdit

It's been over a year since the suggestion to have a paragraph has been implemented and it seems to me it is not a major obstacle. I propose to add another criteria explicitly requiring "topics promoted from 2017 on to have a descriptive paragraph explaining how the topic is linked together, which mentions most of the articles covered in the topic".

ps: I'll merge the other dead talkpages Nergaal (talk) 09:56, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

I've merged most of the talkpages hereEdit

Since there is little activity, whoever might still be following this, I've merged almost all the talkpages here and linked the relevant archives. Nergaal (talk) 17:30, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Parent article requirementEdit

I'm trying to get the macroraptorial sperm whale articles–Livyatan, Zygophyseter, Brygmophyseter, and Acrophyseter–to GA or higher, but I'm wondering, in order to nominate for this, the necessity for a macroraptorial sperm whale parent article? Does a parent article absolutely have to exist?   User:Dunkleosteus77 |push to talk  02:38, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured topics/Asteroid beltEdit

I have to point to point this out. Wikipedia:Featured topics/Asteroid belt fails the 3.a.i WP:WIAFT criteria and therefore it should be moved to WP:GT. 2A02:2F0D:81D:1E00:954:823D:C85A:D42A (talk) 11:45, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. GamerPro64 02:18, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Proposal for featured topic boxEdit

On the talk page of the template used for good and featured topics, I have proposed that a parameter be added. If interested, please comment here --DannyS712 (talk) 06:19, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Good topic Question(s)Edit

Hi. I've been doing work around Children's books articles and have a few Good Articles to my name. I am curious, admittedly for purposes of the WikiCup, whether a topic like 2010s Caldecott Medal Winners (e.g. the 10 books from 2010 - 2019) would meet the eligibility criteria for a good topic or whether this is too much a cherry picking. Similarly what about Year X Caldecotts which would encompass both the medal winner and honor books (generally 3 - 7 books per year)? Thanks for any feedback and Best wishes, Barkeep49 (talk) 22:13, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Potential Snooker Good TopicsEdit

Hi! I'm hoping you can help me with information as if the following is a suitible good topic, or if I would require different articles; rather than the ones I have illustrated. The good topics would be on the Triple Crown (snooker) events, per season. Obviously there is a lot to do on this, but if someone could let me know if this is suitible or not, I will know what to work on.

3 articles
  201/18 Snooker Triple Crown events
  2018 Masters
  2017 UK Championship
  2018 World Snooker Championship

Would I need to also work on Snooker season 2017/2018? Or is this not a suitible topic? Sadly, there's no article on the Triple Crown per season, but arguably the season article covers this. I've never done a GT before, so I'm a bit lost, sadly. Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 16:09, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

As per this above, any ideas if this is suitable? Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 15:30, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Featured topic categoriesEdit

Why are there categories for each featured topic for both the good and featured content? Before opening a mass cfd, I wanted to see if there is something I'm missing. I'll note that there are currently 406 empty categories in the form "__featured topics__". Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 06:42, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Article merged as part of GTEdit

Meteorological history of Cyclone Leon–Eline was a part of Wikipedia:Featured topics/1999–2000 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, until I merged the article today per editor consensus. I think I know the answer, but what's the proper procedure for updating the topic? ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:04, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Moving a good topicEdit

The Central Link stations Good topic will need to be moved to accommodate the lead article's subject being renamed to the Red Line (Sound Transit) this week. Is there anything special that needs to be done or would a regular pagemove suffice? SounderBruce 06:43, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
