Four Freedoms (Norman Rockwell)[edit]

Would it be sufficient for a Four Freedoms (Norman Rockwell) GT to promote Four Freedoms (Norman Rockwell), Freedom of Speech (painting), Freedom from Fear (painting), Freedom to Worship (painting), and Freedom from Want (painting) or would I also have to promote Four Freedoms and Norman Rockwell?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 10:24, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

It would be sufficient with Four Freedoms (Norman Rockwell) and the four paintings that encompass it. This would be exactly like the case of Wikipedia:Featured topics/Four Quartets.-- 12:23, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
I agree with 十八. --PresN 19:32, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
A 5-article topic would be the correct format here. Nergaal (talk) 10:55, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Topic talk pages[edit]

Should Wikipedia talk:Featured topic candidates/Timothy Blackstone/archive1 and Wikipedia talk:Featured topic candidates/Washington Park, Chicago exist? Why didn't Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/Millennium Park have project tags before I just added them?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 13:41, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

For the first question, those are candidate talk pages, so they shouldn't exist. For your second question, it may not always have been common practice to add project banners to topic talk pages.-- 20:36, 4 May 2014 (UTC)


I am not motivated to nominate my own topic, but now Wikipedia:Featured topics/2008–09 Michigan Wolverines men's basketball team should be an 8-article topic given 3 additional player articles and an assistant coach. It looks quite pitiful being included as a GT.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 13:52, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this up Tony. I'll start a GTRC for it soon. GamerPro64 21:09, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Potential good topic[edit]

G'day all, this is my first foray into good topics, so I would appreciate some guidance from the veterans. Is there anything about this topic that raises eyebrows or begs questions?

3 articles
Good article 1st Army Group
Invasion of Yugoslavia lines of attack Why We Fight no. 5.jpg
Good article 4th Army
Good article 7th Army

Any and all feedback appreciated. Regards, Peacemaker67 (send... over) 00:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Looks good. A small suggestion - Make the 4th Army and 7th Army articles to be part of two different columns so they appear side by side. Also, are these two the only articles related to the main article (1st Army Group)? The number of articles is not an issue, but just make sure that all articles/lists connected to this topic are included. I will definitely support this once you formally nominate it. Just fix that red link that appears on 1st Army Group's lead (in fact red links seem to plague all the articles) --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 18:02, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Editor with two nominations[edit]

Hi. I was wondering whether an editor can have two GT nominations at the same time? Right now I have a GT nomination for Sale el Sol. I think, or rather I am hoping, that I'll have another GT candidate ready soon. Then can I have two nominations at the same time? Is it possible or is it prohibited? --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 17:58, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

That would be fine.-- 20:34, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

GT->FT promotion[edit]

Now that Freedom from Want (painting) was passed, 3 of the 5 topics in the Four Freedoms (Norman Rockwell) topic are featured. What is the protocol for FT promotion?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 02:17, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Once the article officially becomes a Featured Article, and the topic is at least 50% featured, the topic automatically goes from Good Topic to Featured Topic. Rather simple, really. GamerPro64 03:27, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
The FAC has been closed by the delegate, but not officially updated and closed procedurally.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:08, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Now, everything is official. What should happen now?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 03:02, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Hopefully more Featured Topics be made? :-) GamerPro64 01:06, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Greg Wohlwend topic[edit]

7 articles
Good article Greg Wohlwend
Greg Wohlwend headshot full frame.jpg
Good article Solipskier
Good article nominee Puzzlejuice
Good article Gasketball
Good article Hundreds
Good article Ridiculous Fishing
Good article Threes!

I'm preparing this topic for candidacy and am curious how I should handle it. Wohlwend is an indie developer and the topic scope was meant to be the things he has worked on, and the above topic would comprise all of them. He was one part of a two-person team, Mikengreg (also a GA), that worked on his first two full titles (as well as some smaller stuff) but I didn't think that it fit the scope unless perhaps it was the parent for Solipskier and Gasketball within the topic. Thoughts? czar  00:06, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Okay, it's up: Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Greg Wohlwend/archive1 czar  00:10, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
