The following is a list of Featured articles from the first half of 2006 and prior that have not been processed at the Featured article review (FAR). The list is in two parts:

  • The original few or no citations list. These are articles which, as of June 2006, had few or no inline citations. Generated in that month, it originally comprised 523 featured articles that had less than ten inline citations; while partly arbitrary, this was compiled under the general assumption that such articles would not meet the evolving referencing standards of the Featured article process. The initial list was created by The Disco King and was maintained by SandyGeorgia until September 2010.
  • Other unreviewed featured articles to June 30, 2006. These articles, totalling 315 313,[1] had 10 or more citations at the time the original list was generated and thus were not included. FAR and the old Featured article removal candidates were merged in June 2006; thus this section widens the original pool of unreviewed FAs to include every article promoted prior to the "modern" review process. It was compiled by Dr pda and SandyGeorgia in September 2008, and has been maintained by DrKay and Maralia since 2010.

As FAs lose status through the Featured article review process, they are to be struck through (example) on this list. See the statistics below for the total number with problems at the initial drafting of the two sections and subsequently.

This list is not canonical, a policy, a "punishment" for articles, or a proxy for the regular Featured article review; it is meant to aid people in tracking featured articles that have not been reviewed, and not more than that.

Stats[edit]

Data for the original worklist from June 2006 of 523 featured articles with no in-line citations.

Summary: in June 2006, 523 articles (52% of the FAs at the time) were identified that needed to be checked for the new requirement for in-line citations on FAs. The final article was checked at FAR in February 2012; 356 of the original 523 were defeatured (68%) and 167 were kept (32%).

FA status removed[edit]

Brought to standard[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c In March 2010, it was discovered that Chola dynasty (previously reviewed) and Schabir Shaik Trial (previously defeatured) had been included in this list in error. The tally of unreviewed articles was adjusted to 313. See Wikipedia talk:Unreviewed featured articles#Schabir Shaik Trial.
  2. ^ The general condition of this article seems to be sufficient to meet current FAC requirements in January 2012. There may be minor maintenance issues required but nothing worth starting a FAR over.
