This page is an effort to bring the Asian tallest building lists up to Featured topic status. It is based on WP:HOCKEY/FTD, a recent Featured Topic Drive that similarly focused on Hockey Award FLs. The purpose of this page is to make the tallest building lists of the 20 largest skylines in Asia into individual Featured lists and then the entire subject into a Featured topic.

If you have any questions, simply leave a note on the talk page. If you would like to participate, please add your name to the Participants list below.

Tasks[edit]

There are several ways you could participate in this process. Here are just a few:

  • Work on building lists covered by the FT drive, and help bring them to FL status.
  • Review FL candidates at WP:FLC, and help indetify problems with the list candidates so that they can be addressed and the list can be passed.
    • Note: It would generally not be a good idea to vote support in building list candidacies nominated by another member of this drive. This may appear to be vote fixing, and is discouraged at WP:FLC and could hinder attempts to get the FT passed at WP:FTC. However, if a user who is a prt of the drive bring up concerns at the candidacy (i.e., you originally Oppose based on some issues), and they are addressed, then this would be an acceptable situation for that user to offer Support.
  • Take photos of prominent buildings for use in the building lists, if you live in one of the cities.
  • Identify articles below you are interested or willing to "claim".
  • Nominate and review already featured building lists at Wikipedia:WikiProject Architecture/Peer review.

Candidates[edit]

FLCs[edit]

FT Criteria[edit]

  1. The articles should have a clear similarity with each other, should be in the same category, and should be grouped under one collective name that does not arbitrarily exclude items.
  2. The topic should have a lead article (List of tallest buildings in Asia), which introduces and summarises the topic.
  3. There must be at least three separate articles.
  4. All articles in the series should be linked together, preferably using a template.
  5. There should not be any obvious gap (missing or stub article) in the topic.
  6. Each article should be of a good quality, including references. Not all articles need be featured class, but several should be. The rest must be all Good Articles or A class except where achieving such a class is impossible. Expect an audit of all articles not Featured or Good status to ensure that they are of a quality consistent enough with the other topics.

Recommendations[edit]

As well as these requirements, the following are recommended:

  • The structure of the articles should be similar, having the same section titles and order where possible.
  • The articles should use a common infobox when reasonable.
  • Each article should have been peer reviewed.
  • The topic should not be too big. There is no maximum number of articles, but as a rule-of-thumb any topic with more than 20 entries can likely be broken down into sub-topics. For example, Science fiction movies would be too large a topic, but Star Trek movies would be good. This rule-of-thumb does not apply to items in a series. For example, every article from 1st Canadian Parliament to 39th Canadian Parliament could be included in one topic.
