Community areas in Chicago[edit]

78 articles
Start-Class articleCommunity areas in Chicago
Flag of Chicago, Illinois.svg

I know this is a bit ambitious and a long shot, but I was wondering if these articles themselves would be enough to make a Good or Featured Topic, or would there need to be additional material such as Neighborhoods in Chicago? FWIW, all these articles have the navbox {{Community areas of Chicago}} in common. Thanks! – John M Wolfson (talkcontribs) 07:32, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

John M Wolfson, this looks perfect! That would be amazing if many of these were brought up to GA! That's absolutely fair to do a topic of the officially-defined areas: there are far too many neighborhoods, many of which are appropriately just sections of the community area articles anyway.

@Wikiman5676, Vami IV, Paul 012, Joshua Jonathan, Javierfv1212, Chiswick Chap, and JimRenge:, comments are welcome.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 15:53, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

Yes, why not. Chiswick Chap (talk) 15:54, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Chiswick Chap! I am having doubts about the main title index article, Ten Principal Disciples. Not sure if it is notable enough.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 16:01, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
"... of Buddha"? Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:03, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Farang Rak Tham, good idea. Like Chiswick Chap I prefer Ten Principal Disciples of Buddha. JimRenge (talk) 17:37, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Fixed, thanks. Still, the question remains as to whether Ten Principal Disciples is a sufficiently notable topic.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 23:20, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Yes. Absolutely. –♠Vami_IV†♠ 01:24, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
I have done my own assessment of the start-class biographies listed and found all but one to be C-class. –♠Vami_IV†♠ 12:10, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
Much appreciated, Vami_IV!--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 07:14, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
Vami_IV How about the main index article, Ten Principal Disciples? Is that still at start level, you think?--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 12:08, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
Oop, hadn't thought to check that one. C-class. –♠Vami_IV†♠ 20:03, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
Great, Vami_IV, thanks!--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 10:01, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Operas by Claudio Monteverdi[edit]

7 articles
Featured article Operas by Claudio Monteverdi
Bernardo Strozzi - Claudio Monteverdi (c.1630).jpg
Featured article Claudio Monteverdi
Featured article L'Orfeo
Featured article L'Arianna
Featured article Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria
Featured article L'incoronazione di Poppea
Featured article Lost operas

If those more familiar with the process could assist: After Gerda Arendt and I recently got List of operas by Claudio Monteverdi to FL, a featured topic with Monteverdi's operas seems like the next step. The opera articles were all brought to FA by Brianboulton, who has since passed away. Should Monteverdi's article itself be included, as it is FA? We spoke with the main contributor other than Brian, Smerus, and he was unsure as well. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Aza24 (talk) 21:51, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

No- The topic as listed is "Operas by Claudio Monteverdi", and Monteverdi himself is not one of those operas. The status of any given article does not affect whether it is in a topic. Monteverdi would need to be the lead article to be included, and that won't work as the non-opera articles aren't GA+. That said, while I'd be fine with it, it should be noted that you're excluding two child articles of L'Orfeo, which is a little suspect on a 6-article topic. --PresN 15:33, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
@PresN: Leaving Monteverdi out sounds good to me, thanks for your input. I certainly wasn't cherry picking in this topic and purposely leaving the List of items and Possente spirto out. I would be hesitant to promote and then include them since, as you say, they are not one of Monteverdi's operas. My assumption is that they would be more appropriate as a subtopic of L'Orfeo.

Mainline 3D Sonic games[edit]

Good article Sonic Adventure 2
Good article Sonic Heroes
Featured article Sonic the Hedgehog (2006 video game)

Could this potentially qualify as a good topic? There is not really a main page for these games, but they are all still heavily related. How do I approach this as I am new to this part of Wikipedia.(Oinkers42) (talk) 18:50, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
