What is a good article?[edit]

A good article is—

  1. Well written:
    (a) the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct; and
    (b) it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation.[1]
  2. Verifiable with no original research:
    (a) it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline;
    (b) all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines;[2] and
    (c) it contains no original research.
  3. Broad in its coverage:
    (a) it addresses the main aspects of the topic;[3] and
    (b) it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style).
  4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each.
  5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.[4]
  6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:[5]
    (a) images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content; and
    (b) images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions.[6]


  1. ^ Compliance with other aspects of the Manual of Style, or the Manual of Style mainpage, is not required for good articles.
  2. ^ Either parenthetical references or footnotes can be used for in-line citations, but not both in the same article.
  3. ^ This requirement is significantly weaker than the "comprehensiveness" required of featured articles; it allows shorter articles, articles that do not cover every major fact or detail, and overviews of large topics.
  4. ^ Vandalism reversions, proposals to split or merge content, good faith improvements to the page (such as copy editing), and changes based on reviewers' suggestions do not apply. Nominations for articles that are unstable because of constructive editing should be placed on hold.
  5. ^ Other media, such as video and sound clips, are also covered by this criterion.
  6. ^ The presence of images is not, in itself, a requirement. However, if images (or other media) with acceptable copyright status are appropriate and readily available, then some such images should be provided.

Reboot NEWS[edit]

White actors and actresses will be excluded from the cast.

Headline-1: Fox to Reboot ’24’ with ‘Diverse’ ‘Jack Bauer’

ARTICLE SUBTITLE: In the name of racial diversity, another major TV network has announced that it will exclude white actors from participating in the casting process of a major series reboot.

QUOTE: "While producers on the potential show would prefer to cast a black actor in the lead role, Walden did not rule out the possibility of filling the slot with a Latino actor.

“Whether that’s African-American or a Latino actor, we’ve been really excited about some of the people we’ve been seeing throughout our internal process,” she said.

24: Legacy will revolve around military hero Eric Carter’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him. Carter reaches out to ask CTU for help in saving his life and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

Walden also revealed Legacy will deal with sleeper cells radicalizing Americans and will feature an entirely new cast." -- AstroU (talk) 09:40, 19 January 2016 (UTC) -- PS: FYI for future editing.

article title change[edit]

Hello, I currently live in India and there is an official television series aired in India known as 24. all things that the English 24 series follow like the genre of the series is followed by the Indian series too. It Is like the INDIAN VERSION OF THE ENGLISH 24. (It is not violating any copyright issues as it took permission before making an Indian version) THEREFORE I WOULD LIKE THAT THE TITLE OF THIS ARTICLE BE CHANGED TO "24( AMERICAN TV SERIES)" SO AS NOT TO CONFUSE WITH THE INDIAN SERIES WHICH DOES NOT HAVE AN article at present but will soon have as I am working on it. --VarunFEB2003 (talkcontribs) 09:13, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

24 (TV series)#Indian adaptation links to 24 (Indian TV series) which has existed for three years. "24( AMERICAN TV SERIES)" is a hopeless suggestion. If we move it then it should be to "24 (U.S. TV series)". There are already hundreds of articles with "(U.S. TV series)" in the name.[1] See Wikipedia:Requested moves for how to start a discussion properly. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:08, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
ok thnx solved VarunFEB2003 (talkcontribs) 10:14, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
I would say that we should keep the titles as they are. The American version of the show went on for several seasons and is widely known. I feel that if a random person is looking for an article on the 24 series, they are overwhelmingly going to be looking for the American series. Meanwhile, the Indian series only went on for one season. Although it has been brought back for another season, I'd say it's too soon to know if any further disambiguation is necessary.
And finally, please don't start another article for the Indian version. We only need one article on it. Please put your efforts into the existing article. Dismas|(talk) 10:57, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Oppose move. Per Wikipedia:Partially disambiguated page names#List of partially disambiguated article titles it is possible to just say "(TV series)" about the primary TV series. In addition, the Indian TV series also has a section here. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:54, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
