Articles and lists nominated here can be about any topic on Wikipedia. Topics that are likely to appeal to a wide variety of editors are encouraged. Stub-Class, Start-Class and C-Class articles are ideal for nomination, as they often have potential for improvement. Topics are presently categorized using the 10 topical areas listed under Peer review, with one additional category. These current areas are:

  • Arts
  • Applied Sciences and Technology
  • Natural Sciences
  • Everyday Life
  • Geography
  • History
  • Language and Literature
  • Mathematics
  • People/Companies/Organisations
  • Philosophy and Religion
  • Society and Social Sciences

Nominations should include an article's currently assessed Class Rating, as well as the average number of daily hits (see www.stats.grok.se). Successfully nominated articles are moved into the Holding Area, until they are added into the Schedule.

Articles[edit]

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: ~~~~

Major rock band, 60 million albums sold worldwide including 5 platinum, active for nearly 45 years. I have recently identified problems on the talk page and downgraded its assessment from B to Start, but in summary, the article needs major work on sourcing and POV. I would ultimately like to see this reach GA status, but even a day's serious work will help. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 11:24, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

After finding the article quality going backwards again due to IP edits, I have had to put a {{fanpov}} tag on this article, which has been edit warred over with by IPs. I think the need to stop this article descending further into start-class quality has increased. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 09:56, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
