FT criteria clarification[edit]

For anybody watching this page I would appreciate some further input at Wikipedia_talk:Featured_topic_criteria#Intro_para_as_requirement_for_FT. Nergaal (talk) 19:16, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Alkali metals[edit]

Is Category:Wikipedia featured topics Alkali metals featured content supposed to exist? It has a couple of members, but the page doesn't exist. SpinningSpark 15:55, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

That was an oversight on my part. Took care of it. GamerPro64 17:10, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Topic critera[edit]

It's been over a year since the suggestion to have a paragraph has been implemented and it seems to me it is not a major obstacle. I propose to add another criteria explicitly requiring "topics promoted from 2017 on to have a descriptive paragraph explaining how the topic is linked together, which mentions most of the articles covered in the topic".

ps: I'll merge the other dead talkpages Nergaal (talk) 09:56, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

I've merged most of the talkpages here[edit]

Since there is little activity, whoever might still be following this, I've merged almost all the talkpages here and linked the relevant archives. Nergaal (talk) 17:30, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article. AIRcorn (talk) 23:22, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Parent article requirement[edit]

I'm trying to get the macroraptorial sperm whale articles–Livyatan, Zygophyseter, Brygmophyseter, and Acrophyseter–to GA or higher, but I'm wondering, in order to nominate for this, the necessity for a macroraptorial sperm whale parent article? Does a parent article absolutely have to exist?   User:Dunkleosteus77 |push to talk  02:38, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured topics/Asteroid belt[edit]

I have to point to point this out. Wikipedia:Featured topics/Asteroid belt fails the 3.a.i WP:WIAFT criteria and therefore it should be moved to WP:GT. 2A02:2F0D:81D:1E00:954:823D:C85A:D42A (talk) 11:45, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. GamerPro64 02:18, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Proposal for featured topic box[edit]

On the talk page of the template used for good and featured topics, I have proposed that a parameter be added. If interested, please comment here --DannyS712 (talk) 06:19, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
