Working definition[edit]

The working definition for this topic is pretty simple, "all aspects specific to Final Fantasy VIII", including the spin-off game Chocobo World.--Pharos 01:41, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Vital improvements[edit]

This topic does not meet current Wikipedia:Featured topic criteria, and will be eligible for removal after 1 January 2008 if this situation is not rectified. In particular, criteria call for at least three featured articles in a topic, while this topic has only two such articles.--Pharos 01:41, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Actually, the criteria say at least three articles, not three featured articles. — Deckiller 02:45, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Hmm... currently the wording on Wikipedia:Featured topic criteria is that "several" articles be FA; and "several" usually means more than two. Perhaps I should raise the issue there.--Pharos 03:05, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Either way, I would probably object to a three FA minimum, especially with respect to smaller Featured Topics. — Deckiller 03:09, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
OK, I'm striking this out, you're right enough – there is no such explicit statement there. Perhaps indeed there was some confusion between the two criteria in my mind. Anyway, I hope we can work out something more useful than "several" at the criteria page.--Pharos 05:45, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

It can now be removed March 5, three months since the article Chocobo World was demoted. Zginder (talk) (Contrib) 03:04, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Would it be possible to just remove Chocobo World from the topic, since it's not a major part of Final Fantasy VIII and only slightly related? — Deckiller 21:12, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
We can't just arbitrarily remove articles from the topic, I don't think there is really a process for it. And besides, it could get ridiculous if we have to keep removing and re-adding articles, it would just be a waste of time. I vote we rally and fix it. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 22:37, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure it's even possible to fix it at this point, which is why I propose removing it from the topic. Doesn't the article needs references that don't exist? — Deckiller 05:26, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
If that is the case, I think we should merge it, and then update the topic. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 00:33, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree with Judge. Since the refs most probably can't be provided, it would be a lot better to merge the article into FFVIII. The Prince (talk) 16:30, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

What refs are needed exactly? The article seems like it has improved since 3 months ago. FightingStreet (talk) 17:20, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Potential improvements[edit]

Of course, GA articles should be tried to be improved to FA status. It is vitally important that at least one such additional article is promoted (see above).--Pharos 01:41, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Possible additions[edit]

I am not aware of any possible additions to this topic.--Pharos 01:41, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
