This page is closed for nominations. Please add new nominations at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations.

All nominations after October 20th will be considered for the following release version. Nominations submitted but not reviewed by October 20th will still be considered for Version 0.7.

This symbolises a Wikipedia 0.7/release version nomination

Here, we determine which entries will compose the next offline Release Version, 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 here are ongoing, for whichever version is planned next, and nominations will be moved over to the next version page when it becomes available. Links that have a strikethrough are unavailable/defunct at present.

These entries will be selected based on importance and quality.

Nomination categories[edit]

Miscellaneous | Arts | Everyday Life | Geography | History | Language & Communication | Life Sciences | Mathematics | Philosophy & Religion | Physical Sciences | Social Sciences & Society | Technology and Engineering

Eligibility for inclusion in the next Release Version[edit]

See the release criteria. Being a test release, the number of articles is expected to be fairly small.

Entries that are nominated will then be considered for inclusion on releases of Wikipedia the next offline release version of Wikipedia, as outlined below. Previous offline releases include:


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:Core topics - 1,000.

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.

  1. The Host (film) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) B-Class, core article for WP:FILM PC78 (talk) 12:45, 2 October 2008 (UTC) NOTE: We're currently considering the entire core films selection en masse see talk. Walkerma (talk) 04:15, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Visual arts project: The following were selected after discussion by the project here. I would point out the project is handicapped on the auto-selection because we have few very active editors, and do not rate for importance, nor very often for quality (the ratings VA articles have are normally Biography project drive-bys, often inappropriate, and not updated). We only rarely do GAs either, & few FAs. These would all be Top-importance & are good quality. Looking at the other submissions around, in terms of subject importance, and hit rates, I think we are being too modest & should add more later. We have also suggested a number of removals on the other page. Johnbod (talk) 20:58, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

  20. 1795-1820 in fashion - more could be added, but we go to decade articles after this. Johnbod (talk) 19:41, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
I passed all of the XXX in fashion because (a) they are very nicely done, (b) as a series of articles, they form a very good overview of the history of Western fashion and (c) they give us some coverage in a subject area where we are otherwise weak. My main gripe is that non-Western fashion is not covered at all - what were the styles found at the court of Ulugh_Beg, the Yongle Emperor, Akbar the Great or Dawit II of Ethiopia? I think perhaps the articles should add the word "Western" (or European?) into the titles. The last one in the selection also needs the citations formatting. Otherwise a very nice collection. These represent the kind of article SelectionBot may miss, because the lack of interwikis is merely due to a difference in how the material is covered - I'm sure that the French, Italian etc. Wikipedias cover this same content, they just break it down differently. You mention the problem with the decade articles - yes, perhaps it would be good if there were some summary articles. It may seem hard to describe all of C20th fashion in one article, but all subjects face this type of problem in writing overview articles, and these often make up some of our most useful content because material is shown in a wider context. Regarding jacket, etc. I think the fashion project should make an effort to bring these very basic topics up to a decent standard - they are clearly important topics, but the content in each of these looks like mainly "drive-by" content on random things rather than a coherent, comprehensive description of the topic. Thanks for a great set of nominations, Walkerma (talk) 08:26, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Fair comments, & sorry we were so late. The bot selected Han Chinese clothing and sari etc, but we don't have as much on non-european clothing, though generally these changed much less rapidly in these periods (see Fashion). Johnbod (talk) 11:59, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for all the feedback. It's unfortunate, but I think the edits of (for example) coat (clothing) have reduced the comprehensiveness of the article over the last few months (from a historical perspective, jacket is probably best addressed as a subset of "coat"). But perhaps we need to find some editors who want to do solid research on fundamental topics like shirt. I do plan to go back through the History of Fashion series and bring the citations up to snuff; working forward through time on that, very slowly. - PKM (talk) 20:22, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

  2. Dungeons & Dragons (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) An FA of top importance to its own Wikiproject, with an overall score of 1,843 - although I'm wondering if we even need to nominate anything on this page?

# Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) Lord High Chamberlain of England under Queen Elizabeth. One of the most intriguing characters ever to rise and fall from grace. Equally interesting, he is the leading alternate candidate for the authorship of the works of Shakespeare.

Skinny87 (talk) 08:59, 13 October 2008 (UTC) PASSED - with newer data, probably would have been selected via WP:Germany.
  9. USS Nevada (BB-36) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) FA; her sortie is very well-known and is one of the hallmarks of the Attack on Pearl Harbor...(obviously behind Arizona '​s sinking). PASSED

Mathematics[edit]

  1. Mathcounts (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) - GA, top importance to WPMC, mid for WPMATH. It's more of a household name (at least in the United States) than already-included International Mathematical Olympiad. Quality mathematics articles are hard to come by anyways. Finally, it's the only mathematics competition that has non-mathematical sponsors, which arguably makes it the most well-known (though a bit US-centric, I admit).

    I'll punt this one, as it satisfies the criteria for inclusion based on importance, but it is lacking a lot of detail on the impact of the iMac on Apple, which is one of the primary reasons given in the nomination. I'll revisit this in a while, and I'll decide whether to pass or fail on quality at the time. Titoxd(?!? - cool stuff) 04:00, 23 October 2008 (UTC) HELD based on Titoxd's comments - though could have been categorised as FAIL on quality, but we should definitely review it next time.
