Removing Featured lists in Wikipedia

This page is for the review and improvement of Wikipedia:Featured lists that may no longer meet the Featured list criteria. FLs should be kept at current standards regardless of when it was promoted. Any objections raised in the review must be actionable.

The FLC director, Giants2008, or his delegates NapHit, Crisco 1492 and SchroCat—determine the exact timing of the process for each nomination. Nominations will last at least 14 days, and longer where changes are ongoing and it seems useful to continue the process. For a nomination to be kept, consensus must be reached that it still meets the criteria. Consensus is built among reviewers and nominators; the delegates determine whether there is consensus. A nomination will be removed from the list, archived and added to Former featured lists if, in the judgment of the director who considers a nomination and its reviews:

  • actionable objections have not been resolved; or
  • consensus to keep has not been reached; or
  • insufficient information has been provided by reviewers to judge whether the criteria have been met

Nominations may be closed earlier than the allotted two weeks if, in the judgment of the FLRC delegate, the list in the nomination:

  • has a clear consensus to merge or redirect to another article or list. This consensus may be shown in Articles for deletion, a discussion on the article's talk page, a discussion on the relevant WikiProject(s), or other community venues that present a tangible consensus to merge or redirect the article; or
  • contains a clear copyright violation and removal of the copyrighted material would severely degrade the quality of the list.

Do not nominate lists that have recently been promoted (such complaints should have been brought up during the candidacy period on Wikipedia:Featured list candidates), or lists that have recently survived a removal attempt – such nominations are likely to be removed summarily.

GimmeBot will update the list talk page after the list has been kept or the nomination archived; the delay in bot processing can range from minutes to several days, and the {{FLRC}} template should remain on the talk page until the bot updates {{ArticleHistory}}. If a nomination is delisted, editors should take adequate time to work on resolving issues before re-nominating at Featured list candidates.

Nominations will be removed on Tuesdays and Saturdays, just before User:GimmeBot's scheduled run at 00:00 UTC Wednesday and Sunday mornings.

Nomination procedure

  • Place {{subst:FLRC}} on the talk page of the nominated list.
  • From the FLRC template, click on the red "initiate the nomination" link. You will see pre-loaded information; leave that text. If you are unsure how to complete a nomination, please post to the FLRC talk page for assistance.
  • Below the preloaded title, write your reason for nominating the list, sign with ~~~~ and save the page. Please note which of the featured list criteria that the list fails to meet.
  • Place {{Wikipedia:Featured list removal candidates/name of nominated article/archiveNumber}} at the top of the list of nominees on this page by first copying the above, clicking "edit" on the top of the page, and then pasting, making sure to add the name of the nominated article.
  • Notify relevant parties by adding {{subst:FLRCMessage|ArticleName|archive=# of archive page}} (for example, {{subst:FLRCMessage|List of Presidents of the United States|archive=1}}) to relevant talk pages (insert article name). Relevant parties include main contributors to the article (identifiable through article stats script), the editor who originally nominated the article for Featured List status (identifiable through the Featured List Candidate link in the Article Milestones), and any relevant WikiProjects (identifiable through the talk page banners, but there may be other Projects that should be notified). Leave a message at the top of the FLRC indicating whom you have notified and that notifications have been completed.
Nominations urgently needing reviews
edit · history · watch · refresh

The following lists were nominated for removal more than 14 days ago and have had their review time extended because objections are still being addressed, the nomination has not received enough reviews, or insufficient information has been provided by reviewers to judge whether the criteria have been met. If you have not yet reviewed them, please take the time to do so:

Lists nominated for removal[edit]

List of MetroLink (St. Louis) stations[edit]

Notified: Millbrooky, WikiProject Rapid transit, WikiProject Trains

I am nominating this for featured list removal because it has had very few updates since its nomination in 2008. The ridership information is outdated, many of the reference links are dead, and there are no individual references for the stations on the list (i.e. "city" column, "opened" column). –Dream out loud (talk) 19:35, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have completely restructured the page: rewritten lede, all information fully cited with live links, and the most recent data available. It appears that the BSDA only takes ridership counts every 4-5 years so the FY2011 data is the most recent available; however, with the other problems fixed, I don't believe that alone requires delisting. All currently open stations have ridership counts, and the year-to-year change is not likely to be substantial. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 22:23, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Looks great, thanks for cleaning it up. I definitely think it's back to FL status now, so I don't see a need for delisting anymore. –Dream out loud (talk) 17:11, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

List of post-confederation New Brunswick general elections[edit]

Notified: Wikipedia:WikiProject Elections and Referendums

I am nominating this for featured list removal because it appears to lack all citations. Being nominated so long ago, I don't think it ever had citations. The citation warning has been on the page for 5 years, and about a month ago I posted to the talk page and Wikipedia:WikiProject Elections and Referendums but nobody has come forward. This nomination may set a precedent, as there are 10 or so more featured lists in this series that all fail to meet citation guidelines and probably should be delisted. I also think that given it is a series (for each province) they should be standardized before considered for featured list status again. Mattximus (talk) 16:48, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Delist, no references at all for anything later than 2006, multiple prose and MOS problems (e.g. the opening sentence "This article provides a summary of results for the general elections to the Canadian province of New Brunswick's unicameral legislative body, the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick" has random bold links as well as being an awful start to an FL by current standards; the tables should run in chronological not reverse chronological order). Way below the standards of our best work. BencherliteTalk 10:31, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

List of schools in the Marlborough Region[edit]

Notified: Gadfium, WikiProject New Zealand schools

This is a six-year-old list, and it's showing the sign of earlier standards a little too much, unfortunately. There is unsupported information in the lead, and only one reference in both tables. Seven references for any featured page is insufficient, and the fact that one of those is a dead link is concerning. There are inconsistencies other more minor MoS fails too, but the lack of supporting citations is the main worry. (Please note that this FLRC wuld be running regardless of whether the column of external links was in the table or not: that was also an MoS fail). SchroCat (talk) 06:40, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

List of schools in the Northland Region should probably also be considered here as it was promoted at a similar time and has a similar history.-gadfium 07:27, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Both the nominated list and the Northland Region list need some work, delist as I agree with the nominator's rationale. Gloss 18:33, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
