Removing Good and Featured Topics in Wikipedia

If you feel a topic on Wikipedia:Featured topics or a topic on Wikipedia:Good topics should no longer be there, then this is the place to nominate it for demotion. Only topics that do not adhere to the good or featured topic criteria should be listed. Objections raised must be actionable.

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

Once a topic has been nominated on this page for ten days, it will be removed from the list of featured topics if the consensus is to remove, and added to the list of former featured topics. All discussions will be logged at Wikipedia:Featured topic removal candidates/archive.

Nomination procedure

  1. Place {{FTRCmain|ExampleTopicName|X}} or {{GTRCmain|ExampleTopicName|X}} (as appropriate) on the talk page of the main article of the topic, where X is the desired archive number.
  2. From there, click on the "add a comment" link.
  3. Add ===ExampleTopicName=== and the topic's box copied from Wikipedia:Featured topics/ExampleTopicName.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the topic. Note which of the featured topic criteria that the topic fails to meet.
  5. Place {{Wikipedia:Featured topic removal candidates/ExampleTopicName/archiveX}} (again, where X is the desired archive number) 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.

Supporting and objecting[edit]

Please read all the articles of the nominated topic fully before deciding to support or oppose a nomination.

  • 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 to remove, write '''Delist''' followed by your reasons.
  • If you oppose of a nomination to remove, write '''Keep''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a justification why the topic does not violate the listed criteria.
  • If you want to delay the nomination while another nomination takes place, such as adding new items to the topic or nominating member articles for Good Article status, write '''HOLD''' with a link to the relevant nomination and this nomination will not be closed until after the other one.
  • To withdraw a support or objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

Consensus must be reached for a topic to be removed from featured status. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. As a general guide, new topics will remain on here for at least 10 days to allow for comment, and must have at least 4 remove votes (although consensus and lack of major objections are also important) for removal.

Captain Marvel (film), Avengers: Endgame, Spiderman: Far From Home have not been made GA, are not in the process, and are outside the grace period. Additionally, Black Panther (film) has been delisted. Kees08 (Talk) 07:00, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Support removal, regrettably Tragically, this valuable collection of articles on a series of mostly very good (and certainly very popular!) films never really met the criteria for good/featured topic status.
Most of the articles scraped by GA review without a thorough source check, which would have revealed too much of the text to be closely paraphrased or copy-pasted, and when not that the information is often not verified by the sources at all. The cast sections are uniformly poorly written (they are formatted based on poster billing rather than reliable secondary sources, leading to glorified cameos being given more emphasis than major players) and filled with OR (the character descriptions are often mish-mashes of what can be gleaned from various films in the same franchise), while most of the production and reception sections are barely-readable WP:QUOTEFARMs. Many of the articles only appear "stable" because of WP:OWN and WP:TAGTEAM behaviour on the part of a small group of editors who maintain them. A lot of the blame for this mess can probably be placed on the GA review process, where reviewers have a vested interest in passing the articles regardless of all else (Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stand out as examples that definitely never should have passed).
These and other reasons aside, I cannot support the maintenance of this group of articles as a featured topic at this time.

This topic is no longer complete. An article for Nagato (Naruto) was created in July 10, 2019‎ and has not been passed as a GA. Nagato is a Naruto character, and the article would need to pass a GAN for this topic to be complete. Aoba47 (talk) 18:08, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Delegate comment The same would also apply to Madara Uchiha.-- 20:25, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Thank you. I missed that one so thank you for including that one too. Aoba47 (talk) 20:54, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Remove topic I originally planned to make Nagato a GA but I think I ended busy with another article in the process. While I find potential for both Madara and Nagato since both present real world information, it might take too much for them to become GA.Tintor2 (talk) 14:22, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
Comment I would say oppose, but both Nagato and Madara Uchiha seem like GA worthy articles. KingSkyLord (talk | contribs) 02:07, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Since neither of them are nominated for a GAN, it does not seem like they will be GAs in the near future though. Aoba47 (talk) 01:01, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

I am nominating this topic due to it failing to meet criterion 3.b with Matt Taven not becoming a Good Article after more than 14 months since becoming champion. Armbrust The Homunculus 13:44, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

  • As the orginal topic creator I will not have the time for focus to get Taven to GA so I do support this removal. MPJ-DK (talk) 15:08, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
