Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates
Featured and good topics in Wikipediafeatured topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles).
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 Sturmvogel 66, 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.You may want to check previous archived nominations first:
Good and featured topic tools:
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
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, Cyberbot I 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).
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.

I am nominating director Quentin Tarantino as a good topic since many of his films have reached good-article status, along with his filmography, and his film's Inglourious Basterds accolade list as they have both reached featured-list status. Horacio Vara (talk) 19:40, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
- Director Comment - there are numerous articles missing from this topic. Pulp Fiction isn't even here. GamerPro64 21:17, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
- Oppose: As Gamer points out, there are lots of Tarantino's notable films left out of the current proposal, and a GT/FT proposal can't cherry pick only article that happen to currently be at high quality. More fundamentally, the inclusion of Quentin Tarantino filmography makes this into an overview topic proposal and means that the proposal need not include any articles at all about his individual films, since they're all covered under that FL. If you could take the biography and filmography and add Featured List versions of List of awards and nominations received by Quentin Tarantino and Quentin Tarantino's unrealized projects, together with a GA/FA version of A Band Apart and maybe Rolling Thunder Pictures, then I think you'd have a G/FT to propose. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 00:06, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
- Oppose - I suspect this is a case of misunderstanding the criteria for a FT/GT as "group together any articles relating to a topic which are at GA/FA status", which isn't how it works........... -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 10:02, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
