After nearly three and a half years of work I am proud to present to Wikipedia the first attempt at a Featured Topic nom for ships, in this case the legendary Iowa-class. This is my first nomination for Featured Topic, so I apologize in advance if I goofed on anything. I state clearly for the record two important points that must be addressed with this nom: First, several of the articles are at the moment undergoing peer reviews. These reviews will not alter the outcome of the articles quality, nor do they threaten the stability or FA rank of any articles in question. The peer reviews are opened by me on a yearly basis to ensure that any changes in criteria since the last formal review are incorporated into the articles. Secondly, I am officially a college senior now, and managed for the first time ever to line up 15 credit hours, but the classes and work load at senior level are intense. I therefore want to explicitly state here that if I appear slow to respond to requests, comments, or opposes have patience, it is likely that school work has me tied up.

  • Support as nominator. TomStar81 (Talk) 06:21, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. I was the primary editor on USS Iowa turret explosion, but was not involved except for some minor editing in most of the other articles for this topic. TomStar81 has done really excellent work in leading the construction of this topic and the articles included in it and I fully support its inclusion as a featured topic. Cla68 (talk) 06:37, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - (Disclosure, I collaborated with Tom on Illinois and Kentucky) -MBK004 06:43, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Wow, can't see anything to oppose here, very comprehensive! Skinny87 (talk) 07:56, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support — Although Tom has included me in the above nomination as a major contributor, I think that's giving me too much credit. Nonetheless, I believe this meets the FTC criteria. (But shouldn't the topic be pluralized?) — Bellhalla (talk) 13:48, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
    (Yes I think it should be too, I'll be bold and make the change - rst20xx (talk) 12:04, 10 February 2009 (UTC))

    You are welcome. TomStar81 (Talk) 16:16, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - agree with Bellhalla, with the difference that I know he is giving me too much credit, but this definitely meets all of the FT criteria. Cheers, —Ed 17 (Talk / Contribs) 18:19, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Shouldn't United States Naval Gunfire Support debate be included too? Nergaal (talk) 18:48, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
    • I made a conscious decision to omit that article for two reasons: first, the core articles here are those related directly to the battleships. In real terms that means all six battleships, their weaponry, and the class article. The gunfire support debate involves the battleships, but is not exclusively concerned with the battleships, and on top of that there are surviving FAC issues (including NPOV complaints) that have yet to be addressed. In light of this I felt that it would be best to omit that article until the complaints were adequately addressed. In real terms, the article is not actually missing from the set: the class article contains a summary of the debate including the key points from the debate article, and this allows for an overview of the debate without bring an article with issues into the set. In fact, the entire debate originated on this page and was spun out so that the Arleigh Burke and DDX-class articles would have a link to a dedicated debate page rather than have to link to a subsection of the Iowa-class. Having said all this, if consensus is to include the article, I will add it to the lineup. TomStar81 (Talk) 19:08, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
      • Support, but you should note that the debate article can easily pass GA criteria so it can be technically added quite soon (only problem being the apparent dislike of GAs inside the MilHist project). Nergaal (talk) 19:50, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support I think that United States Naval Gunfire Support debate should be included at a latter date, but this topic is fine for now. Zginder 2009-02-09T19:12Z (UTC)

Previous nomination was withdrawn due to concerns over the broadness of the topic. Nevertheless, the criteria for overview topics were clarified, and I believe that the topic does pass those criteria. The only article that may deserve addition is Good articleTapeworm (band), but it seems that it is only a minor part of the topic to really deserve inclusion. Cheers! Nergaal 05:44, 8 February 2009 (UTC) & Drewcifer3000

  • Support - I supported before, I'll support now. Let's hope the overview rules prevent what happened last time from happening again - rst20xx (talk) 14:47, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - also supported last time. The NIN articles always impress me, let's hope the FTC passes this time. igordebraga 00:24, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Ok, this should all be in order. Content from The Cole Protocol added as addendum to the List of Halo media (and the plot details to be added to the series topic). This would replace Wikipedia:Featured_topics/Halo_trilogy, but I figured since it's a new name and larger scope it would be best to simply delist and redirect if this passes. --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 19:53, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Comment - I think it should be nominated for removal properly. As for me, I'll hold off on supporting til you're done with The Cole Protocol - rst20xx (talk) 20:55, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Then if this one passes I would be happy to do so (I'm not familiar with FTC, so that's why I didn't think about it.) As for The Cole Protocol, I've added notes into List of Halo media and Halo (series). --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 20:19, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
      • Actually upon reflection I've changed my mind, I think it would work better if this is considered a supplementary nomination of the existing topic (albeit a very big one). Then the other one would not need to be removed, and the history of the two topics can be combined. Would this be alright by you? rst20xx (talk) 12:19, 10 ~ 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - I don't think Halo 3 marketing really belongs in this topic, and I think it would be better for Halo (series) to be the lead article and List of Halo media to be a non-lead article in the topic. Rreagan007 (talk) 20:59, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Halo 3 marketing contains information about various Halo media that isn't found elsewhere, i.e., the Iris ARG, and promotional trailers that I believe fall into the "media" scope. That said, changing the media lead article to the series article changes the scope from simply media to halo in general. --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 20:19, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
      • The scope of a topic is not dictated by the lead article. The scope is defined by the collection of articles that are in the topic. The lead article does need to be appropriate for the topic, but it does not have to bind the topic together perfectly. If you really want the list to be the lead I won't oppose on that, I just think it would make the topic have a better structure. It's more a matter of personal preference anyway. Rreagan007 (talk) 20:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment I tend to agree with Rreagan here, I feel that the series article would make a better central page than a list. To me, its an easier introduction to the topic for the general reader than the list, especially with the more comprehensive coverage of things like the cancelled projects, film and cultural impact—elements that aren't that well covered in the list. The series article, after all, is written as a complete and intentional summary of the franchise. I don't see it as changing the scope of the topic at all, a series is the media that comprises it. Having the media list as a standard part of the topic would still be reasonable. I don't agree Rreagan with removing the Halo 3 marketing article though; as already said by David, I think it provides some insight into other more specific parts of media. -- Sabre (talk) 21:37, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support, it all looks good to me now. -- Sabre (talk) 10:50, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. I think that works much better now. I still don't think the marketing article really belongs, but it's a minor issue. Rreagan007 (talk) 15:28, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - meets WP:WIAFT.--TRUCO 18:12, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Question shouldn't the characters article be included too? Nergaal (talk) 05:51, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I preferred the old lead. Contrary to Rreagan, I do not think the scope of the topic fits closely enough with the scope of the lead, whereas before I think it was a pretty good fit - very easily equatable to a discography topic for a band. The topic is after all called "Halo media" and not "Halo", so contrary to what Sabre says, the lead shouldn't serve as an introduction to Halo as a whole, but to its related media! rst20xx (talk) 15:15, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Argh!!! --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 15:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
      • I agree with rst20xx. Gary King (talk) 16:36, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
        • Sorry! I agree with your original argument that many bits of media are in the marketing article though, hence it should be included. Also I would argue that marketing is a form of media, just less physically tangible than other forms - rst20xx (talk) 19:04, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
        • Oh, and also, Rreagan did say "If you really want the list to be the lead I won't oppose on that"! rst20xx (talk) 19:20, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
          • The series article covers the video games, music, books, and movie. What halo media is the series article lacking? Rreagan007 (talk) 01:34, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
            • Well, my point would more be that the series article also covers characters, factions, etc., which aren't included in this topic. Hence, the scope of the lead is too big for the scope of the topic. (Okay, I'm sure someone would parallel this to the "titles" topics at this point, but actually only StarCraft and Zelda have comparable list articles that could be used, so they are the only two that go against what I'm suggesting, but neither of them have ALL the media included in their topics, so the lead wouldn't perfectly fit the topic there whatever they used!) - rst20xx (talk) 13:21, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
              • You're right it does have extra stuff besides just media in the article, but Halo media is the core of the series article with some extra things added in that relate to the media. And as you point out there are other topics that do the same thing. Just look at the current Halo Trilogy topic. The series article is the lead for that topic, but it clearly contains a lot of information that does not pertain to the trilogy. So if you're correct then the current Halo trilogy topic does not have an appropriate lead either. Also if you are correct and the series article exceeds the scope too much to be the lead article, then it's also too broad in scope to be a non-lead article in the topic. And the Halo 3 marketing article (and maybe other articles in the topic) is too broad as it does not contain just the media. Rreagan007 (talk) 19:45, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
                • But marketing IS a form of media! ...But yes, I would advocate removing the series article from the topic altogether. Anyway, I don't think any of us want to stop this nom over the choice of lead, so shall we put this to a vote, and let whichever side wins be the deciding factor? I vote media - rst20xx (talk) 22:56, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
                  • I'll go along with whatever the majority votes for. I vote series. Rreagan007 (talk) 01:22, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • (reset) - alright, well, it seems Sabre would agree with Rreagan007, and Gary King would agree with me. Does anyone else have an opinion? David Fuchs? rst20xx (talk) 13:25, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
    • It depends. If Halo media is the main article, then I think it's a tad disingenuous to have this FTC as a supplementary nom as we're not only adding articles but changing the lead (and scope). --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 18:00, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
      • It's not unprecedented to have supplementary noms/removal candidates remove articles, this has happened a few times actually - eg here (removal candidate), here (sup nom), here (sup nom). In fact in the second case the lead article was changed from media to series! (Because media got demoted from FL, not because of suitability considerations)
      • The only reason I said this should be a sup nom is because procedurally it's easier to carry out, but this can always be considered a fresh nom if the nom type's gonna have an effect on your decision on this - rst20xx (talk) 00:39, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
        • My vote is for media, and I would prefer in that case to have it be a separate nom--if it's too much trouble for you though, just disregard that :) --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 01:38, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
          • OK, I'll separate nom it - rst20xx (talk) 16:48, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment - sorry that I'm saying this so late in the day (got a bit sidetracked by the main article discussion) but I'd like to see more from The Cole Protocol added elsewhere. At the moment The Cole Protocol gets no more a mention in List of Halo media and Halo (series) than the rest of the books do, but as it doesn't have its own article I think it should get more coverage, probably given its own paragraph in the books section of Halo (series). I think this paragraph should be a combination of the lead, background, overview and reception sections that were in the Halo: The Cole Protocol article - rst20xx (talk) 14:08, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
    • But the background section was no more than a minor note that Nylund had been interested in telling the story of Grey Team, per WP:NOT#PLOT it seems a poor idea to add a plot summary beyond the minor mentions; the reception was just a list of bestseller lists, which has been added to the series article. Given its lack of coverage it's kind of undue weight to give the book a bigger treatment than the others. --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 14:24, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
      • OK, you have a point that the lead/background/reception are largely integrated already but I'd still be inclined to add more to the series article. You say that that it'd be undue weight to give this book more coverage than the others, but I'd argue the opposite and point out that at the moment this book has significantly less coverage than the others, because it doesn't have its own article, whereas they do! I guess the difference then is you're thinking of weighting within individual articles whereas I'm thinking within the overall set of all the articles - rst20xx (talk) 14:54, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
        • My thoughts exactly. I just don't see why we should make special provisions and alterations to the structure of an article to accommodate what couldn't stand on its own. --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 14:57, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
          • OK well I guess I just figure including the information somewhere provides more useful information for the reader than not including it, but anyway, I should have struck my oppose long ago now and I certainly don't want to hold the nom up over The Cole Protocol - rst20xx (talk) 19:56, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I just did a quick scan, but Halo Wars is not up to par for even B-class standards, IMO. It's Peer Review was absymally short and took place over seven months ago, when practically no information was there. There are sentences in the article like "Units are built, buildings upgraded, and special abilities utilized by using resources that are simply known as supplies," which is a lead topic sentence. The Audio section is just a list of the songs; it does not have any information about song length, and is not formatted well. Halo: Chronicles and Halo: ChroniclesHalo:ODST (whose AfD closed as merge) are also much the same. NuclearWarfare (Talk) 23:46, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I assume you mean Halo 3: ODST as the merge reference? (That AfD was before the project actually had an official name.) I don't see what's the issue with Halo: Chronicles, as it's pretty much the same as it was after the PR; same with ODST. Halo Wars is in the middle of being expanded in preparation for launch; I can guarantee it will be FA within 3 months or whatever the retention period is. --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 00:04, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Also, if you checked the citation, you would see that the actual lengths of the tracks for audio have not yet been released; it's just a press release before the soundtrack comes out after the game. The gameplay section was mangled by vandalism; I have reverted it. --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 00:05, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Halo Wars seems fine then, though ideally, I would have liked to see more work done for it. Chronicles and ODST simply seem too short for me now. I know that there is probably nothing you can do about it, but I'd really prefer if they were expanded somehow, as I don't think that Start-class articles really cut it. NuclearWarfare (Talk) 00:38, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Nope, not much I can add. Stop by sometime soon for Halo Wars though, I'm adding info on the audio :) --Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 00:52, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Weak oppose - I think the scope of this topic probably constitutes cherrypicking by scope reduction (from a topic for the whole of Dutchess County). I know the main article is an FL but I have no idea how that managed to happen, there's nothing listy about it, it's simply a summary style article of four other articles, and (unsurprisingly!) very short at that - rst20xx (talk) 17:37, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    It isn't cherry picking. And, as far as I am concerned, this was more to split a topic on Amenia (CDP), New York, which could have too much of a broad scope, not dutchess county itself. (Meaning this isn't following the others).Mitch32(Go Syracuse) 22:16, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    I guess then I'm at a loss as to why a hamlet of 1100ish people deserves an article on the roads going through it! Seems like it's not notable to merit an article separately from one on the roads in the whole county - rst20xx (talk) 23:08, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Self-nomination for featured topic. These articles detail Sharp's life, his murder by Beauchamp, Beauchamp's possible motives, and his execution for the crime.

Good article Washington Park Race Track
Good article Washington Park (Chicago park)
Good article Washington Park Subdivision

On its second go around, this topic now includes both National Register of Historic Places listings in Chicago properties in the neighborhood. I believe it is now complete with respect to the wishes of the discussants at the first nomination (note the last three articles listed in the box are newly minted WP:GAs). I anticipate a subtopic to evolve with Washington Park (Chicago park) as the main article and DuSable Museum of African American History and Fountain of Time when the latter makes its way through the WP:GAC process (hopefully on its first attempt). The subtopic may also include Bud Billiken Parade and Picnic, depending upon commentary. I do not think any of these belong in the main topic here.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 14:43, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

It should be noted that I am aware that the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid will be evaluated on 2 October 2009. If successful, there will surely be articles under names to be determined for 2016 Olympic Stadium and 2016 Olympic swimming venue. These are both buildings that may very well have articles in October 2009 but not be completed until October 2016. It would be possible that neither article can achieve WP:GA until 2016. I am not sure whether either will belong in this topic or the subtopic, but these will have to be audited articles for several years in all likelihood.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 16:06, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - this is a very impressive topic, much better than last time around. I find it amusing that we have here a topic where 5 of the 6 articles all have the same name!

  • Comment Support. First of all, I must apologise for never coming back to this discussion after voting oppose last time. It must have slipped my mind, but was very rude of me. secondly, I think this is much closer to completion than the last one was. However I am reluctant to support because I see a problem in the lead article: the In literature section consists of two unconnected sentences and I am not be satisifed that this is compliant with GA standards. Can this section be expanded into a full prose paragraph, or if not at least presented in a more appealing manner? --Jackyd101 (talk) 07:21, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Comment - I assume the community area is named after the park? And the park is named after George Washington. Is it possible to say that somewhere in the community area article? rst20xx (talk) 22:22, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment (again) - would a navbox be merited? rst20xx (talk) 11:34, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
    • How common are navboxes linking GTs? Is it mandatory? I could do one pretty easily, but is it warranted? I don't know.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 15:56, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
      • No it's not mandatory but it's pretty common, due to 1.c). I'm not sure if it'd be appropriate here because it's not very common to have navboxes on places like this, but here you've clearly defined what articles are in the area already and so I thought it would be worth asking you your opinion. As for whether it's useful, I would say yes, it makes navigating the articles even easier. Not going to change my vote based on this though - rst20xx (talk) 18:37, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Supplementary nominations[edit]

Yamato class battleships[edit]

4 articles
Good article Yamato class battleships
YamatoClassBattleships.jpg

Good article Yamato

Good article Musashi

Good article Shinano

It is indeed ironic (and fitting) that this is the first MILHIST Topic Nom (though Belhalla has 4 on top of that) to follow after the legendary Iowa-class battleships—the two mightiest classes of warship to have ever existed who ironically, due primarily to logistics and fuel consumption, never met one another in combat. Having worked on this general topic for the last two months, I have finally brought all four of the articles within the project's scope to GA-Status (two others are also A-Class with MILHIST). All articles are GA or higher, and as such I believe that this topic qualifies for GT-Status. Also, since this is my first time doing a GT nom, I apologize in advance if I have goofed in any way.

  • Support Zginder 2009-02-10T05:20Z (UTC)
  • Support. Meets the GTC criteria. (Full disclosure: I performed the GA review for Japanese aircraft carrier Shinano, and participated in the A-Class review for Japanese battleship Yamato.) — Bellhalla (talk) 05:21, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support -MBK004 05:25, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - and I guess the separate but related class Super Yamato class battleship could be a possible later addition? rst20xx (talk) 12:03, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Possibly, but I doubt it. The Super Yamato class wasn't really related outside of the name and that it was going to be the next class of battleship after the Yamato class. —Ed 17 (Talk / Contribs) 16:11, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Meets GT criteria. Parsecboy (talk) 12:54, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - Bring on the competition! :) In all seriousness though, everything checks out. Well done! — Preceding unsigned comment added by TomStar81 (talkcontribs)
  • Support - good work Cam, this meets all the criteria. (disclosure: I helped write part of Yamato-class battleship, and reviewed Yamato for GA.) —Ed 17 (Talk / Contribs) 16:11, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. Great work by Cam. Of course a never-ending debate goes on between battleship otaku as to what would have happend if the Yamato battleships had met the Iowa battleships in battle, which almost occurred at Leyte Gulf. I'm sure the result would have been fun for everyone except, of course, the sailors involved. Cla68 (talk) 02:50, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - the name might need a plural though. Nergaal (talk) 00:43, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
