Featured and good topics in Wikipedia

This star symbolizes the featured topic candidates on Wikipedia.
GA icon symbolizing Good topic candidates on Wikipedia.
A featured topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles).

A good topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles) with a less stringent quality threshold than a featured topic.

This page is for the nomination of potential featured and good topics. See the good and featured topic criteria for criteria on both types of topic. If you would like to ask any questions about your topic and the featured topic process before submitting it, visit Wikipedia talk:Featured topic candidates.

Before nominating a topic, nominators may wish to receive feedback by listing it at Featured topic questions. Nominators must be sufficiently familiar with the subject matter and sources to deal with objections during the FTC/GTC process. If you nominate something you have worked on, note it as a self-nomination. Nominators who are not significant contributors to the articles of the topic should consult regular editors of the articles prior to nomination. Nominators are expected to respond positively to constructive criticism and to make an effort to address objections promptly.

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. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates topic and archived.

Nomination procedure[edit]

To create a new nomination use the form below (e.g., Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Saffron/archive1) and click the "Create new nomination" button.

Once the nomination page is created, remember to transclude it in the appropriate section below, to leave nomination templates on the talk pages of the articles nominated for the topic, and to create appropriate books (see Book:Jupiter for a good example). For detailed instructions on how to nominate topics or add articles to existing topics, see Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Nomination procedure.


Supporting and objecting[edit]

Please review all the articles of the nominated topic with the featured topic criteria in mind before deciding to support or oppose a nomination. Following the creation of the book, Cyberbot I will create a book report (see example) containing details about cleanup issues (only those that have been flagged with cleanup templates, so it may not pick up everything), and various tools to inspect external links or resolve disambiguation pages. It can be a good idea to check the report and inspect links to see if certain articles need some cleanup (doing this before the nomination is even better).

  • To edit nominations in order to comment on them, you must click the "edit" link to the right of the article nomination on which you wish to comment (not the overall page's "edit this page" link).
  • If you approve of a nomination, write '''Support''' followed by your reasons.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write '''Oppose''' or '''Object''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a specific rationale that can be addressed. If nothing can be done in principle to fix the source of the objection, the objection may be ignored.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

For a topic to be promoted to featured topic status, consensus must be reached that it meets the criteria. If enough time passes without objections being resolved (at least one week), nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. Nominations will stay here for ten days if there is unanimous consent, or longer if warranted by debate.

I am nominating this for featured topic because I believe it exemplifies some of Wikipedia's best work, especially in the area of Minor Leagues Baseball. All articles and lists are featured except List of Nashville Sounds no-hitters, which has too few items (it has been peer reviewed). NatureBoyMD (talk) 01:34, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Good topic nominations[edit]

6 articles
Good article NWA World Historic Light Heavyweight Championship
Rey Bucanero.JPG
Good article Diamante Azul
Good article Rey Bucanero

Getting the process going as Stuka Jr. became a Good Article on 14 September. Armbrust The Homunculus 22:30, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Support: Seems like a straightforward addition of the new title holder. Stuka Jr. needs to be added to the topic box, and when you do I'd recommend putting the articles into some sort of order (they don't currently appear to be either alphabetical or chronological?). -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 00:42, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

1966 NASA T-38 crash[edit]

Two astronauts crashed a jet into the very building that housed the spacecraft they were to fly in.

Good article 1966 NASA T-38 crash
The Original Gemini 9 Prime Crew - GPN-2000-001352.jpg

Characters of Halo[edit]

5 articles
Good article Characters of Halo
Guilty-spark minor.png
Featured article Master Chief
Good article Cortana
Featured article Arbiter
Good article Gravemind
Contributor(s): KingSkyLord

I am re-nominating this topic as a good topic because the article for Cortana has been promoted to Good article status. --KingSkyLord (Talk page | Contributions) 23:53, 28 August 2019 (UTC)


  • Support: Seems to cover the indicated scope, including all articles in the category at GA or better. I don't feel qualified to assess whether these are indeed all of the Halo characters who are notable enough to merit articles, but assuming it should be just these four, then the topic looks ready to me. -Bryan Rutherford (talk) 16:14, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Support: Nice work getting Cortana promoted to GA status. The topic is fully covered so there is no reason to not promote this imo. Aoba47 (talk) 18:03, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Great job in restoring this topic. Maybe this more complicated one can get the same treatment? igordebraga 02:48, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support. No issues apparent that prevent this. Nice job. - Bryn (talk) (contributions) 02:51, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

This Good Topic nomination comprises all of the screw corvettes built by the Imperial German Navy from the 1860s to 1880s, used first as front-line warships before the type was superseded by more modern cruising vessels, at which point they became training ships for naval cadets. A couple of the ships saw action during the wars of German unification in the 1860s and early 1870s, but only two were sunk, both accidentally in storms. Thanks to all who take the time to review the topic. Parsecboy (talk) 12:12, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Support: Looks like a well-defined topic, with all the classes and ships covered at GA-quality and tied together by a navbox template. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 12:48, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Support per Bryanrutherford0. Gog the Mild (talk) 15:12, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

This topic is no longer complete. An article for Nagato (Naruto) was created in July 10, 2019‎ and has not been passed as a GA. Nagato is a Naruto character, and the article would need to pass a GAN for this topic to be complete. Aoba47 (talk) 18:08, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Delegate comment The same would also apply to Madara Uchiha.-- 20:25, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Thank you. I missed that one so thank you for including that one too. Aoba47 (talk) 20:54, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Remove topic I originally planned to make Nagato a GA but I think I ended busy with another article in the process. While I find potential for both Madara and Nagato since both present real world information, it might take too much for them to become GA.Tintor2 (talk) 14:22, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
Comment I would say oppose, but both Nagato and Madara Uchiha seem like GA worthy articles. KingSkyLord (talk | contribs) 02:07, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

I am nominating this topic due to it failing to meet criterion 3.b with Matt Taven not becoming a Good Article after more than 14 months since becoming champion. Armbrust The Homunculus 13:44, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

  • As the orginal topic creator I will not have the time for focus to get Taven to GA so I do support this removal. MPJ-DK (talk) 15:08, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
