Better definition for rules
I think that the following criterion could be defined more clearly:
The featured topic director, GamerPro64, or his delegate Juhachi, determine the timing of the process for each nomination. For a nomination to be promoted to FT or GT status, consensus must be reached for a group to be promoted to featured or good topic status.
I am going to recommend that we follow the WP:FPC guidelines of:
For promotion, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers in support and the consensus is in its favor, it can be added to the Wikipedia:Featured pictures list. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator and/or creator of the image; however, anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets.
Rephrased for our project:
For promotion, if a topic is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers in support and the consensus is in its favor, it can be promoted. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator(s) of the topic; however, anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets.
- A hard ten day limit is going to be very problematic here, given how long it can take to draw attention to even the most well-qualified of topics. I'd suggest a month, as that seems to be how long a normal nomination takes around here. Courcelles (talk) 21:04, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
- Yeah, 30 days seems more appropriate. 19:21, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Nomination needs closing
Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Type 1934-class destroyers/archive1 was promoted but the nomination is still open. Brad (talk) 00:43, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
- GamerPro64 closed it last January...--十八 01:08, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
- There was still a template up saying it was still nominated. I removed the template. GamerPro64 16:01, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Month-old addition page still open
This nomination for three additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe films good topic has been open since April 8 and currently has six votes of support (and in the interest of transparency, one is from me). I wanted to request a user to review this addition and close it as either added or not, as I personally think it has remained open longer than necessary. Sock (

Greetings, shouldn't Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Naruto characters/archive1 be closed? It's almost a year old with no comments and two standing opposes. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 19:36, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
- It says its been closed. GamerPro64 20:21, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
2 Topics listed as good topics, say they are featured
Quick question: there are two topics that are listed on the good topics page, but not the featured topic page, that both claim (on their talk pages) that they are currently featured topics. They are Wikipedia:Featured topics/Battlecruisers of Russia and Wikipedia:Featured topics/1st Army Group (Kingdom of Yugoslavia). Which are these? And, if they are only good topics, how can I nominate them for featured status? The only thing that's changed since they were promoted to good topics is that they now meet the requirements for featured topics.
- Good topics become featured topics automatically if at least 50% of the articles in the topic become featured, so there is no renomination process. I moved the two topics to the featured topic page.--十八 00:28, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
