I have worked on this project for over four years, and it is finally complete. Parsecboy (talk) 12:39, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Support a 62 article Good Topic with a quarter of them FA class. Jim Sweeney (talk) 13:15, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Support, although I'm not sure if the sub-topic version is preferable. This is visually very impressive, but rather bulky.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 13:49, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Well, there is precedent for a topic this large - Wikipedia:Featured topics/Governors of Kentucky has 60 articles in it. Parsecboy (talk) 14:15, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Support for the big version, not only because it looks grand and majestic and more visually appealing but also because it is far more illuminating and has a more cohesive and encyclopedic feel to it. Also, it is equally well logically set up as the shortened version. Great work by Parsecboy. - DSachan (talk) 09:44, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

If we're going with the 62-article version, should we still have the many subtopics for this one? Wizardman Operation Big Bear 18:01, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Comment, apparently SMS Ostfriesland has some broken references. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 02:39, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean? There's only one online reference and it's working fine. Parsecboy (talk) 12:49, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Support the single-topic version, and merge in all the smaller topics. Ucucha 23:59, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Support the single topic and merger of smaller topics. Rreagan007 (talk) 15:15, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Support the single topic. I wasn't a fan of having the different topics in the ultimate form, although I think that worked great for the development of the entire topic. I may have to steal that idea for the hurricane project. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:01, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Support single topic. Gage (talk) 05:31, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Just to note that I will likely do this promotion in two parts. The first will be to cut the 11 merged topics and turn them into former ones, the second will be promotion of the big topic. It may be over the course of a couple days, so don't panic if it looks like I'm just removing a bunch of topics. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 15:52, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Consensus to promote as single topic, will handle merging issues tonight and officially promote tomorrow night. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 02:32, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
