Peer review X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Major contributors: Alientraveller and Wildroot
Note: X-Men Origins: Wolverine was not added until 12:05, December 23, 2008

Alientraveller brought the main article, X-Men (film series), and X-Men: The Last Stand to GA-status. I brought X-Men (film) and X2 (film) to GA-status, with Alientraveller contributing with minor help. Every film article is of GA status, which fulfills all criteria for a Good Topic. Also, concerning X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which is an upcoming film. Wikipedia's stance on adding articles like that to this Good topic gives the major contributors three months after release of Wolverine to get to GA-status. That's why X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not listed, yet. Wildroot (talk) 17:57, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I was not aware of that, but how do you exactly peer review an article that is Future-class? Wildroot (talk) 21:57, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Same as any other article. Just open a peer review and ask for input from other people. Gary King (talk) 22:08, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, but that peer review won't happen for another five-six months, so how does it affect this current nomination? Wildroot (talk) 22:09, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
It can be peer reviewed even if the film is unreleased. Issues that can be brought up include: prose, more information to add, etc. Gary King (talk) 22:11, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
But will it affect the current nomination? Wildroot (talk) 23:53, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, criterion 3c of the FT criteria mandates that "Items that are ineligible for featured or good article status, either due to their limited subject matter or due to inherent instability, must have passed an individual quality audit that included a completed peer review, with all important problems fixed." (italics are mine). The topic cannot be promoted until that article is peer reviewed. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:03, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
I see. Alright then. I will get X-Men Origins: Wolverine peer reviewed, and then I shall re-nominate. Therefore this is Withdrawn by nominator, and since I'm not an administrator, I can't archive this page, so an administrator reading this message right now should do something about that. Wildroot (talk) 01:25, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Doesn't have to be an administrator that does that. Anyone can do it; preferably someone who knows what they're doing though, of course. Gary King (talk) 02:50, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
If it's just one PR, this article can be put on hold until it's done. That way it saves having to include failed FTCs in all the article histories. --Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 03:41, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good Gary King (talk) 03:43, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, sounds good to me as well. We'll put this nomination on hold for a couple of weeks to wait for X-Men Origins: Wolverine to get peer reviewed. I've already started. Wildroot (talk) 05:34, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Also, is there a free use image that this topic could use? Always cool to have one! :) Judgesurreal777 (talk) 05:51, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment - can we rename the topic to "X-Men feature films"? The current name doesn't cover its entire scope due to Generation X (film) - rst20xx (talk) 01:35, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't know. Generation X was more of a backdoor pilot, and has no continuity with these four films. Generation X is just one of those weird awkward things that I'm not sure of. Wildroot (talk) 02:00, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
It is an X-Men film, though, per a few things including this. Gary King (talk) 02:27, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't think that's really necessary either. "Film" can have different definitions. One very common definition of a "film" is a theatrically released feature film. I think just using "film" in this way as a shorthand is perfectly acceptable. Rreagan007 (talk) 15:17, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. Wildroot (talk) 19:14, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Alright: X-Men Origins: Wolverine has finished its peer review. Let the topic candidacy continue. Wildroot (talk) 18:07, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
