REVIEWING IS COMPLETE.

NOMINATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR VERSION 0.5.
PLEASE NOMINATE ARTICLES FOR THE NEXT RELEASE VERSION.

All outstanding nominations will be considered for Version 0.5.

This symbolises a Wikipedia 0.5 nomination

Here, we determine which entries will compose an initial test release (called Version 0.5) as part of the overall project of producing a fixed version of Wikipedia. This could be released on CD, DVD, paper, or some combination. Nominations closed on August 31, 2006, and work remaining is shown on the "To do" page.

These entries will be selected based on importance and quality.

Nomination categories (strikeout when finished)[edit]

Eligibility for inclusion in Wikipedia 0.5[edit]

For a detailed description of what we are looking for, see the release criteria. Being a test release, the number of articles is expected to be fairly small. We are looking to include the following in this test release:

  • Core topics, a list of about 150 important articles
  • Further core articles considered as a supplement to the above, as discussed at WP:CORE
  • Continents, countries and global cities
  • Vital articles
  • Key articles (topics considered by WikiProjects to be essential for subject coverage in their area). Not all key articles will qualify.
  • Featured articles if these are on significant topics (see Wikipedia:Version 0.5 FA Review.
  • Featured lists if these are on very significant topics.
  • Articles rated as "A-Class" if these are on very significant topics.
  • Good articles if these are on very significant topics.
  • Articles needed for completeness - for example to complete a set of articles on US Network TV stations or chemical elements - even shorter/weaker articles of this type will be considered, as long as they are written coherently without POV. Usually, these should be nominated at the set nominations page.

Entries that are nominated will then be considered for inclusion on releases of Wikipedia Wikipedia:Version 0.5, as outlined below.

If you nominate something you have worked on, note it as a self-nomination. You may wish to receive feedback from your WikiProject before nominating an article here, or you may wish to list it at Wikipedia:Peer review. If the article is of high quality, you may want to nominate it for Featured article status.

See also Wikipedia:Articles eligible for Version 0.5.

The approval process[edit]

The approval process is designed to be simple, as is appropriate for a test release. Approval will simply involve one member of the editorial team reviewing the article using the criteria outlined above. The reviewer must not have been a major contributor to the article. You may sign up as a reviewer for the team here. If there are quality objections raised, the nomination will be removed from this list and archived. Once the objections have been addressed, you are encouraged to renominate the article. Articles deemed by the team to fail only on the criterion of "importance" will be listed at the held nominations page, for consideration in later releases. Articles that are approved will automatically be submitted for nomination at Wikipedia 1.0 (still under development).

Disputes[edit]

If you disagree the decision to include or exclude an article, please use the disputes page.
