Featured and Good topics in Wikipedia

This star symbolizes the featured topic candidates on Wikipedia.
GA icon symbolizing Good topic candidates on Wikipedia.
A featured topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles).

A good topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles) with a less stringent quality threshold than a featured topic.

This page is for the nomination of potential featured and good topics. See the good and featured topic criteria for criteria on both types of topic. If you would like to ask any questions about your topic and the featured topic process before submitting it, visit Wikipedia talk:Featured topic candidates.

Before nominating a topic, nominators may wish to receive feedback by listing it at Featured topic questions. Nominators must be sufficiently familiar with the subject matter and sources to deal with objections during the FTC/GTC process. If you nominate something you have worked on, note it as a self-nomination. Nominators who are not significant contributors to the articles of the topic should consult regular editors of the articles prior to nomination. Nominators are expected to respond positively to constructive criticism and to make an effort to address objections promptly.

The featured topic director, GamerPro64, or his delegate Juhachi, determine the timing of the process for each nomination. For a nomination to be promoted to FT or GT status, consensus must be reached for a group to be promoted to featured or good topic status. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates topic and archived.

Nomination procedure[edit]

To create a new nomination use the form below (e.g., Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Saffron/archive1) and click the "Create new nomination" button.

Once the nomination page is created, remember to transclude it in the appropriate section below, to leave nomination templates on the talk pages of the articles nominated for the topic, and to create appropriate books (see Book:Jupiter for a good example). For detailed instructions on how to nominate topics or add articles to existing topics, see Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Nomination procedure.

Supporting and objecting[edit]

Please review all the articles of the nominated topic with the featured topic criteria in mind before deciding to support or oppose a nomination. Following the creation of the book, NoomBot will create a book report (see example) containing details about cleanup issues (only those that have been flagged with cleanup templates, so it may not pick up everything), and various tools to inspect external links or resolve disambiguation pages. It can be a good idea to check the report and inspect links to see if certain articles need some cleanup (doing this before the nomination is even better).

  • To edit nominations in order to comment on them, you must click the "edit" link to the right of the article nomination on which you wish to comment (not the overall page's "edit this page" link).
  • If you approve of a nomination, write '''Support''' followed by your reasons.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write '''Oppose''' or '''Object''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a specific rationale that can be addressed. If nothing can be done in principle to fix the source of the objection, the objection may be ignored.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

For a topic to be promoted to featured topic status, consensus must be reached that it meets the criteria. If enough time passes without objections being resolved (at least one week), nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. Nominations will stay here for ten days if there is unanimous consent, or longer if warranted by debate.

We are nominating it as it is a comprehensive topic of popstar Katy Perry. Thank you. -- Frankie talk 18:05, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

  • I'll support if you can tell me when she's gonna release her next album. :P (regular support, just being snarky)Hurricanehink (talk) 18:16, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Support for all the hard work and the wonderfully organized articles. —IB [ Poke ] 10:41, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Support because you gave yourself and worked really hard to make it happen. Btw, we just need one more article to make a FTC for Gaga!!! GagaNutellatalk 03:06, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment - I can't support this nomination because I'd be as such supporting some of my own work and I'm not sure if that's appropriate for me to do. But it's a great topic. Well done.  — Calvin999 18:57, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Support due to the dedication Snuggums has demonstrated throughout the construction of these articles. More than deserved. pedro | talk 00:03, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Look who's back from the dead :P! In all seriousness, I very much appreciate your support. Snuggums (talk / edits) 00:15, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Good article 1st Army Group
Invasion of Yugoslavia lines of attack Why We Fight no. 5.jpg
A-Class article 4th Army

This is a good topic nomination, consisting of all divisional and larger sized formations directly commanded by the 1st Army Group. Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 01:18, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Thanks, they are all largely my work. It is not usual for a commander to be part of a formation/unit GT as far as I am aware. Regards, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 06:14, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

1933 Atlantic hurricane season (1st supplementary nomination)[edit]

This topic is already featured. It is being re-nominated to add additional items. See Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/1933 Atlantic hurricane season for discussions of the topic's previous nominations. The additional items are:

  1. 1933 Florida–Mexico hurricane
9 articles
Featured article 1933 Atlantic hurricane season
Good article 1933 Trinidad hurricane
Good article 1933 Texas tropical storm
Good article 1933 Florida–Mexico hurricane
Good article 1933 Chesapeake–Potomac hurricane
Good article 1933 Cuba–Brownsville hurricane
Good article 1933 Treasure Coast hurricane
Good article 1933 Outer Banks hurricane
Good article 1933 Tampico hurricane
Good article 1933 Cuba–Bahamas hurricane

@CapeVerdeWave: recently created a new article in the 1933 Atlantic hurricane season, which was quickly copyedited, expanded, and reached A-class. It might even be a future FA candidate. The article is just as substantial as the other storms, and so it should be added to the topic. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 20:51, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Support - good addition; do you anticipate any others? --PresN 01:48, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

There is an outside chance that Hurricane 13 of that year could get an article. Is was deadly but short-lived, and it affected Mexico, where info is hit or miss. Hurricanehink mobile (talk) 02:24, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

Pretty straightforward nomination as usual from the WikiProject Tropical Cyclones crew. All notable storms are covered appropriately with sub-articles and are of GA or higher quality. There used to be a few more articles (Alvin, Erick, and Ivo), but a project-wide article purge took place a few years after this season when we established a more restrictive notability policy. Timeline articles are considered optional within the project–in essence, they are a content fork, but done in a specific manner that can be useful to readers such that they fall under WP:SPINOFF–if they exist we'll improve them to featured status for a topic nomination, but if they don't we'll leave it be. --~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 19:53, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Support - Nothing we haven't see before. Do wish you guys could find a guideline on when to have a timeline vs. not, though. --PresN 01:49, 25 December 2015 (UTC)
