Make a /summary[edit]

I make a summary, to make the page only content featured articles page. Nhatminh01 (talk) 10:26, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

External links[edit]

I have been adding comments on the talk pages of articles, some better classed including FA, concerning "External links". Sometimes things can "creep in", and incremental edits can produce a longer list than desirable, but some articles have over 15 "External links" and over 20 "Further reading" sections. I have only been focusing on articles containing "more" than 4 links but certainly those articles with an enormous amount of overlinking like 15 t 25. I haven't looked but if this is not addressed as a criteria during class assessment it needs to be. If it is then things have just drifted along and a good reason to check back in.

MoS compliance is part of the FA criteria so an examination of external links should be included inline with WP:ELMIN and other guidelines. In my opinion anything more than links to an official website and maybe 1–2 other major sites related to the subject should be the max. Further reading can contain more, but WP:RS applies and there should be good reason why those sources aren't cited in the article. --Laser brain (talk) 01:01, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

FA cleanup[edit]

Didn't there used to be a page listing FA's that have maintenance tags on them? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 00:32, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

British-related articles in featured space[edit]

I've noticed an excess of British-themed articles have made it to the front page in the featured articles section. Its like a regular thing, beyond what is due to their population. I'm wondering if some of this is just because there is some tendency for British editors to work on British-related articles to get them up to featured article standards, or if not that, then its a kind of deliberate promotional coordination. -Inowen (nlfte) 04:57, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
