The following is a list of Featured articles from the first half of 2006 and prior that have not been processed at the Featured article review (FAR). The list is in two parts:

  • The original few or no citations list. These are articles which, as of June 2006, had few or no inline citations. Generated in that month, it originally comprised 523 featured articles that had less than ten inline citations; while partly arbitrary, this was compiled under the general assumption that such articles would not meet the evolving referencing standards of the Featured article process. The initial list was created by User:The Disco King and was maintained by User:SandyGeorgia until September 2010.
  • Other unreviewed featured articles to June 30, 2006. These articles, totalling 315 313,[1] had 10 or more citations at the time the original list was generated and thus were not included. FAR and the old Featured article removal candidates were merged in June 2006; thus this section widens the original pool of unreviewed FAs to include every article promoted prior to the "modern" review process. It was compiled by User:Dr pda and User:SandyGeorgia in September 2008.

As FAs with citations problems lose status through the Featured article review process, they are to be struck through (example) on this list. See the statistics below for the total number with problems at the initial drafting of the two sections and subsequently.

As not every article has been read in compiling this list, it is possible that some articles featured Harvard-style inline citations rather than footnotes. If so they may be removed when the inconsistency is discovered. It is likely that several entries on this list should not be here for this reason; if you spot any that use the Inote template, leave a note on the talk page and someone will investigate.

This list is not canonical, a policy, a "punishment" for articles, or a proxy for the regular Featured article review; it is meant to aid people in tracking featured articles that may have citation issues, and not more than that.

Featured article criteria have changed over time and inline citations are now expected for new featured articles; ideally, all older FAs will add them where appropriate, either as parenthetical references or footnotes: see Wikipedia:Citing sources. Generally, articles were included in this list if they had fewer than 10 citations; this is partly arbitrary, but the standard article passing FAC typically has a minimum of 20 or so. References are required for quotations and for material likely to be challenged: see Wikipedia:Verifiability.

Stats[edit]

Data for the original worklist from June 2006 of 523 featured articles with no in-line citations.

  1. ^ a b c In March 2010, it was discovered that Chola dynasty (previously reviewed) and Schabir Shaik Trial (previously defeatured) had been included in this list in error. The tally of unreviewed articles was adjusted to 313. See Wikipedia talk:Unreviewed featured articles#Schabir Shaik Trial.
  2. ^ a b c The general condition of this article seems to be sufficient to meet current FAC requirements. There may be minor maintenance issues required but nothing worth starting a FAR over.
