Removing Featured lists in Wikipedia

This page is for the review and improvement of Wikipedia:Featured lists that may no longer meet the Featured list criteria. FLs should be kept at current standards regardless of when it was promoted. Any objections raised in the review must be actionable.

The FLC director, Giants2008, or his delegates NapHit, Crisco 1492 and SchroCat—determine the exact timing of the process for each nomination. Nominations will last at least 14 days, and longer where changes are ongoing and it seems useful to continue the process. For a nomination to be kept, consensus must be reached that it still meets the criteria. Consensus is built among reviewers and nominators; the delegates determine whether there is consensus. A nomination will be removed from the list, archived and added to Former featured lists if, in the judgment of the director who considers a nomination and its reviews:

  • actionable objections have not been resolved; or
  • consensus to keep has not been reached; or
  • insufficient information has been provided by reviewers to judge whether the criteria have been met

Nominations may be closed earlier than the allotted two weeks if, in the judgment of the FLRC delegate, the list in the nomination:

  • has a clear consensus to merge or redirect to another article or list. This consensus may be shown in Articles for deletion, a discussion on the article's talk page, a discussion on the relevant WikiProject(s), or other community venues that present a tangible consensus to merge or redirect the article; or
  • contains a clear copyright violation and removal of the copyrighted material would severely degrade the quality of the list.

Do not nominate lists that have recently been promoted (such complaints should have been brought up during the candidacy period on Wikipedia:Featured list candidates), or lists that have recently survived a removal attempt – such nominations are likely to be removed summarily.

GimmeBot will update the list talk page after the list has been kept or the nomination archived; the delay in bot processing can range from minutes to several days, and the {{FLRC}} template should remain on the talk page until the bot updates {{ArticleHistory}}. If a nomination is delisted, editors should take adequate time to work on resolving issues before re-nominating at Featured list candidates.

Nominations will be removed on Tuesdays and Saturdays, just before User:GimmeBot's scheduled run at 00:00 UTC Wednesday and Sunday mornings.

Nomination procedure

  • Place {{subst:FLRC}} on the talk page of the nominated list.
  • From the FLRC template, click on the red "initiate the nomination" link. You will see pre-loaded information; leave that text. If you are unsure how to complete a nomination, please post to the FLRC talk page for assistance.
  • Below the preloaded title, write your reason for nominating the list, sign with ~~~~ and save the page. Please note which of the featured list criteria that the list fails to meet.
  • Place {{Wikipedia:Featured list removal candidates/name of nominated article/archiveNumber}} at the top of the list of nominees on this page by first copying the above, clicking "edit" on the top of the page, and then pasting, making sure to add the name of the nominated article.
  • Notify relevant parties by adding {{subst:FLRCMessage|ArticleName|archive=# of archive page}} (for example, {{subst:FLRCMessage|List of Presidents of the United States|archive=1}}) to relevant talk pages (insert article name). Relevant parties include main contributors to the article (identifiable through article stats script), the editor who originally nominated the article for Featured List status (identifiable through the Featured List Candidate link in the Article Milestones), and any relevant WikiProjects (identifiable through the talk page banners, but there may be other Projects that should be notified). Leave a message at the top of the FLRC indicating whom you have notified and that notifications have been completed.
Nominations urgently needing reviews

The following lists were nominated for removal more than 14 days ago and have had their review time extended because objections are still being addressed, the nomination has not received enough reviews, or insufficient information has been provided by reviewers to judge whether the criteria have been met. If you have not yet reviewed them, please take the time to do so:

Lists nominated for removal[edit]

List of Governors of Arkansas[edit]

Notified: Golbez

I am nominating this for featured list removal because the governors' term start & end dates are missing citations. I tried to resolve the issue, but the main author didn't do anything to address it. Синкретик (talk) 08:33, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Surely there is a single source containing the start and end dates for all governors. Sounds like a quick fix? No need to have a citation for each date. Mattximus (talk) 02:14, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
    • Before writing on the list's talk page I googled & found just 2 tables; one of them has discrepancies with the some governors' term dates (e. g., [1] & [2]). Another lacks acting governors. --Синкретик (talk) 06:44, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

List of awards and nominations received by Kanye West[edit]

Notified: Spellcast, WikiProject Hip hop

Another featured list from 2007 which has aged. Lead needs to be rewritten and expanded to represent a summary of the list. Many awards are unreferenced as well as the text describing the awards. Tables are not accessible. Cowlibob (talk) 17:54, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Delist most awards for this gay fish are not referenced. Nergaal (talk) 16:07, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Delist DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 04:48, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Delist lead is too short and article needs more references Snuggums (talk / edits) 06:07, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

List of awards received by U2[edit]

Notified: Agüeybaná, WikiProject U2

Another featured list from 2007 which isn't in good nick. Lead needs to be written and expanded to better summarise the list. Many awards are unreferenced. Tables aren't accessible. Much of the text is unsourced. A lot needed to be done to retain featured status. Cowlibob (talk) 17:26, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Delist per above. It's been almost two weeks and substantial issues remain. Snuggums (talk / edits) 18:09, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

List of Manitoba general elections[edit]

Notified: Wikipedia:WikiProject Elections and Referendums

I am nominating this for featured list removal as part of a series because it appears to lack all citations and the lead needs a complete rewrite. Being nominated so long ago, I don't think it ever had citations. The citation warning has been on the page for 5 years, and about a month ago I posted to the talk page and Wikipedia:WikiProject Elections and Referendums but nobody has come forward. Numerous delists are found below, and I assume they should all apply as well to these nominations. I have asked permission from the FLC director, Giants2008, to nominate these all at once. Mattximus (talk) 21:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Delist all Significant refwork needed to update these pages to reflect results post 2006, leads needs to be expanded and rewritten. Althought my "vote" is only present here, consider it to be also for British Columbia, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. Cowlibob (talk) 13:24, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Delist all DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 04:47, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Delist all as per Cowlibob Snuggums (talk / edits) 06:09, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
