Good articles in Wikipedia
Currently, out of the 4,613,115 articles on Wikipedia, 20,584 are categorized as good articles (about 1 in 225), most of which are listed below. An additional 4,380 are listed as featured articles (about 1 in 1,060) and 2,731 as featured lists (about 1 in 1,690). Because articles are only included on one list, a good article that has been promoted to featured status is removed from the good articles list. Adding good and featured articles and lists together gives a total of 27,695 articles (about 1 in 167). A small plus sign inside a circle () on the top right corner of an article's page indicates that the article is good, unless the appropriate user preference is set.
The process for designating an article as a good article is intentionally straightforward. If you find or contribute to an article that you think meets the good article criteria, you can nominate the article on the good article nominations page for an impartial reviewer to assess. The article will be added to the list of good articles here if the article is accepted by the reviewer. Similarly, anyone can propose that an article which no longer meets the good article criteria be delisted by following the delisting instructions. If an article's nomination fails or if an article is delisted, an explanation and suggestions for possible improvements should be provided on its talk page by the reviewer or delisting editor.
If the article being nominated has an editor who has been its primary contributor, it's a good idea to get them involved in the GA process. Of course, no one owns an article, but the active participation or cooperation of the primary contributor should help to make the GA process less problematic, while failing to do so can lead to hard feelings and make cooperation more difficult.
