The following are nominations to become a today's article for improvement (TAFI) entry. Please do not nominate an article unless you are fairly certain that it meets Wikipedia's notability guidelines. Any nomination of an article that does not meet this criteria may be removed. Any user may nominate and support or oppose an article below, however only members of this project may close nominations as successful or unsuccessful.

Successful nominations have few or no objections and at least 3 supports. They are then moved to the holding area and from there into the schedule. Please add new entries to the holding area at the end of the section lists, to maintain chronological sorting (so that older entries there are scheduled first). Unsuccessful nominations can be archived after 10 days of no discussion.

Please be sure to sign nominations with four tildes: ~~~~
