Nominations list: 457 articles (19 of them are on hold) as of 01:00, 5 September 2018 (UTC) | edit


This Good article nominations backlog elimination drive is a one-month-long effort (originally organized by the GA nominees taskforce and other users) to reduce the backlog of Wikipedia:Good article nominations. It is a continuation of May's backlog elimination drive. Please make sure that you read the whole process of Good Article review before starting to review an article. The co-ordinators for this drive are: OhanaUnited, Nehrams2020 and Epbr123. If you have any questions, leave a message in the drive's talk page. This drive ended on August 12, 2007.

Attention: Consider using {{ArticleHistory}} instead of {{GA}} so that others can follow the article's milestones (such as peer review, FAC, etc.) in addition to GAN. If you added {{GA}} on an article, please go back and replace it with {{ArticleHistory}}. Be sure to follow the syntax properly to allow the template to display correctly.

To receive an award, please include your name and the number of reviews you have completed as part of this drive. Please keep a running total next to your name. Awards will be given by the co-ordinator after this drive ends.

This is the scheme for the awards:

  • 5 for The Working Man's Barnstar
  • 10 for The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
  • 25 for GA medal of merit

Running total[edit]

Only pass/fail will be recognized as completing a review. If necessary, you can put the article on hold if the article needs to be edited further to be passed. Once you have passed or failed the article after putting it on hold, then include your review below. Quick-fail will not be counted. Article reviews completed after July 1 are eligible to be counted into the running total. Please state if the article is a pass, fail, or on hold. Make sure you follow up on holds.
