Version 0.7 test release nominations: held articles

In this page, articles being considered for the current Release Version cycle are debated, if a member of the Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Review Team has a concern about the importance of a topic. Articles placed on this page are reviewed by a larger group of users, which then decide whether to include the article to the current release, to hold it for a future release cycle, or to fail it completely due to quality concerns (which entails a new nomination after improvements have been made).

Contents

Nomination procedures[edit]

I
Add nomination

Copy and paste the following template to the bottom of the list of nominations on this page and fill it out.
Please be sure to spell the article correctly, THE NAME IS CASE-SENSITIVE!

Under "comments" section put explanation of what work is needed. Please remember place a vote when you nominate the article.

II
Notify

After submitting the new nomination, go to the nominated article and put a message confirming the article's held nomination on the article's talk page (use {{V0.7held}}).

How to vote[edit]

There are three sections under which you can place your signature (~~~~). There is the hold section, for articles that you believe do not merit inclusion in the current release version cycle due to importance concerns only. If you believe an article satisfies both quality and importance criteria, comment in the include section.

If you believe an article has issues with quality only, please use the fail section. Ideally, these articles should not come to this page; members of the 1.0 review team are encouraged to fail the articles directly, to allow them to be fixed up for inclusion in the current release cycle.

Don't forget to add a reason to why you commented the way you did, whether it be with your signature, or ideally, in the discussion section of each nomination. The discussion is the most important part of the review process.

I voted fail because of the two maitenance tags,the one on OR especially swayed my vote. §hep¡Talk to me! 21:21, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

I think it's something that should be included on importance, but it is not up to standard in terms of quality. The tags were also a factor in my vote. Ncmvocalist (talk) 08:23, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

The article still has a maitenance tag. More citations are required. AdjustShift (talk) 17:53, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Voyage: Inspired by Jules Verne (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

 Number of votes: 3/0/0

Original nomination: This article has recently been upgraded to A-class and is almost certainly going to be upgraded to FA-status. It is currently undergoing FAC and all comments have been addressed, as have those from the WikiProject CVG assessment, which gave it A-class. While some may say that it is not of the utmost importance, the number of really good adventure game articles is quite lacking, so having some good adventure game articles is probably a good move. Quality wise the article is excellent.--Paaerduag 13:13, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

  1. No interwikis, very few links in, and this does not seem to be a particularly important game. I'd like to see us eventually make a DVD on computer games - let's hold it until then. Walkerma 02:48, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Sherlock Holmes (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

I think this is a good article to add to version 0.7. Because of Sherlock Holmes novels are widely known in England.

  1. Just look at how many interwiki links are FA. That tells you how important this article is. OhanaUnitedTalk page 15:01, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
  2. Bernstein2291 (talk) 01:38, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
  3. The bot listing indicates this is a VERY important article to have, and it is already included under the Novels listing. I suspect the relative lack of inline citations reflects the fact that the article was already very well developed when inline citations began to be used widely. We have much worse articles than this one, which is inevitable if we want a collection of 30,000 articles on non-obscure topics. Walkerma (talk) 04:01, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I voted hold just because I wouldn't feel safe passing an article that barely has any inline citations. There's no way to tell if there's any original research included. §hep¡Talk to me! 21:28, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

No in-line citations - a quality factor rather than importance. Ncmvocalist (talk) 08:32, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

  • I think this is borderline. If it is expanded a little more and its quality is maintained, I can be convinced that this is important enough for inclusion. However, it is not quite there at the moment. Ncmvocalist (talk) 11:03, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
