"Cleaning up the Featured List process, one bug at a time."
Shortcuts:

The Featured List Sweeps task force is a co-ordinated effort to clean up Featured Lists and the associated process. More will be added to this page eventually.

Goals[edit]

  1. To clean up the Featured List process and make sure all FLs are up to the standards of the recently revised criteria.
  2. To provide a collaborative environment so that we can review all FLs in depth.
  3. To (eventually) take any FLs that don't meet the criteria to FLRC
  4. To identify formerly featured lists that we may be able to bring back up to standards.

What this project is not[edit]

  1. An attempt at vote-stacking.
  2. The chance to bad mouth any FL nominators or reviewers. Our purpose is to clean up the FLs, not criticize people. The nominators were simply doing their job by improving content and the reviewers were basing their decisions on the criteria, which allowed such lists.
  3. An evil organization with aspirations for global domination... Yet...

Lists compared to the revised criteria[edit]

Based on my audit findings, please note that not every list from that page was included here. Bolded lists indicate that they appear here more than once. Lists that have been struck through have been demoted from FL status.

Not up to current standards[edit]

The majority of these have a small lead, few references, poor formatting and aren't up to the standards of recently passed comparable lists.
