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.

Good topic nominations[edit]

London station group[edit]

The London station group is a group of 18 railway stations served by the National Rail network in central London. Most are terminal stations, either serving major national services or local commuter routes. A small number are through-stations that are considered terminals for ticketing purposes. All current stations in the group fall within London fare zone 1. A ticket marked "London Terminals" allows travel to any station in the group via any permitted route, as determined by the National Routeing Guide.

The last time I put together a good topic for the List of London Monopoly locations, The Rambling Man said, "I want to see mainline stations of London next." Well, since he asked so nicely, who am I to refuse? So here is a list of all of them, together with a featured topic to tie them altogether. There are more London terminals than you think; some are well known such as King's Cross, some such as Old Street would make you think "that's a London terminus, really?" Still, they're all here for your perusal and comments. --Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 20:21, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

I wasn't sure about whether or not to include them, but I don't think it's immediately obvious that the criteria would mandate them given the lead in the list article talks about "18 stations". In any case, if people want to say "no, go and get Kensington Olympia and Kings X Thameslink to GA" then I'll see you in six months to a year. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 21:20, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Emirates Cup[edit]

The Emirates Cup is a pre-season association football invitational competition hosted by English club Arsenal at their home ground Emirates Stadium, in Holloway, London. The two-day competition was inaugurated in 2007, and is named after Arsenal's main sponsor Emirates. It has been held every summer except 2012 due to the London Olympics, and 2016 because of pitch renovation work.

Seasons of Adventure Time[edit]

Adventure Time is a popular cartoon that aired from 2010 to 2018 on Cartoon Network. The show follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape and size at will. Finn and Jake live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo, where they interact with Princess Bubblegum (Hynden Walch), the Ice King (Tom Kenny), Marceline the Vampire Queen (Olivia Olson), BMO (Niki Yang), and others. This submission groups together the ten season pages, and the featured list of episodes. --Gen. Quon (Talk) 20:44, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment: This should probably be called "Adventure Time seasons" instead since it doesn't include all the individual AT episodes. - Brojam (talk) 07:55, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
  • A good suggestion. I'm not sure how to re-adjust the naming suggestion through this portal, though.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 16:55, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Support - Brojam (talk) 22:59, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment: seconding the above, the articles in this proposal seem to be the seasons of AT, rather than the episodes; is there an appropriate top-level article for that topic? Is the currently proposed "list of episodes" a close enough match to what these articles actually cover? -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 15:16, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
    It seems from other FTs that it's close enough. See for example Wikipedia:Featured topics/Seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender or Wikipedia:Featured topics/Seasons of Veronica Mars. However in that case the three miniseries are probably out of the scope of the topic (miniseries≠season). Armbrust The Homunculus 15:29, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
    You could also name it "Adventure Time seasons and miniseries" or "Seasons and miniseries of Adventure Time" if you really wanted to include the three miniseries. - Brojam (talk) 18:44, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
    @Bryanrutherford0: How does this look? @Armbrust: I went ahead and removed the miniseries.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 02:12, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
    To match the already accepted examples given above by Armbrust, the title of the topic needs to change to "seasons of" rather than "episodes of"; apparently it's acceptable to pipe that link to point to the "list of episodes" article. I've edited the proposal to match the examples, as near as I can tell; someone probably needs to move this proposal to the corresponding name, if everyone agrees. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 14:05, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
    @Bryanrutherford0: How about this?--Gen. Quon (Talk) 14:49, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
    Support: the proposal now seems to fit the pattern established by the other examples noted above. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 14:55, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

It is also to remove the "List of accolades received by The Avengers (2012 film)", as it is felt be the active editors of these articles that, as we continue to add new film releases, an "accolades" articles is not really in the scope of this topic. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 04:00, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment The "Marvel Cinematic Universe film actors" article seems a little bit out of place.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 02:14, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose for now Can we not talk about this until the current copyvio concerns have been cleaned up? One of the main contributors to these articles is currently at CCI (and I've just been informed that CCI typically requires at least five examples, so I'm gonna go make sure it does that) and Black Panther (film) is currently tagged as having a large amount of close paraphrasing -- it's only one section, but that's because most of the rest of the article is a WP:QUOTEFARM. I see no reason to believe the rest of these articles aren't similar, since I picked Black Panther because (a) that's where a single instance of blatant copyvio recently occurred (I reverted it and got an admin to revdel) and (b) I really like that movie: neither of these are particularly "unique", and the editor in question is an established, respectable one, so we have no reason to assume that edits like the revdelled one haven't slipped through the cracks in the other articles.

All articles in this topic has actually been "Good Articles" for a while, I simply was too busy with other stuff to realize it. This topic is about the Lucha Libre, professional wrestling championship, the CMLL World Lightweight Championship and include Good Articles for the wrestlers to hold the championship to create a complete topic here. Only champions not covered do not have articles at all. There is a navigation box that unites all subjects under one and I believe this hits all the marks for a Good Topic. Note: In Mexico the championships usually do not change hands very often (current champion won it in 2016) so it is a pretty stable topic. --MPJ-DK (talk) 12:40, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Gascon campaign of 1345[edit]

Between August and November 1345 Henry, Earl of Derby, conducted the whirlwind Gascon campaign of 1345. Commanding an Anglo-Gascon force he carried out "the first successful land campaign of... the Hundred Years' War" against the French. He defeated larger French armies in open battle at Bergerac and at Auberoche, taking numerous noble and knightly prisoners. In the border region between English-occupied Gascony and French-ruled territory morale and prestige swung England's way following this campaign, providing an influx of taxes and recruits for the English armies. The French lost numerous towns and fortifications and their remaining, large, field army fell apart and was disbanded.

This is my first nomination of a Good Topic, so I doubtless have some things wrong; I hope that these will be considered sympathetically. The proposed GT covers a specific geographic area and time span and includes an article on the campaign and separate articles on each of the two main military clashes during it. There are no other articles within this period and area and no other separately notable events. I have worked up the articles covering the two battles from start class over the last three months and wrote the campaign article myself in October. Two of the articles are currently undergoing ACR at MilHist. --Gog the Mild (talk) 18:05, 18 November 2018 (UTC)


  • Support - Looks like the topic is complete and up to quality. MPJ-DK (talk) 23:49, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment Looks complete from a battle perspective, but I'm left wondering whether key commanders should be included in such a GT? Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 01:40, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
    @Gog the Mild: What do you think of Peacemaker's idea to include key commanders? Kees08 (Talk) 07:44, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @Peacemaker67 and Kees08: Apologies, I seem to have been asleep at the wheel on this one. Interesting point, and probably not one I am up to speed enough to have an informed opinion on. IMO the only "key" commander was the Earl of Derby, who is already a GA (not my work), so I don't think that it makes much/any difference to this nomination. However, I am unconvinced that key commanders are needed in military campaign good topics. I will try to outline some of my thinking below. (Going out, so I will post this as a place holder and come back to it when I can.) Gog the Mild (talk) 16:13, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @Peacemaker67 and Kees08: I think that I am correct in saying that no other GT (nor FT) covering a campaign includes an article on a leader, with the exception of Peacemakers's 1st Army Group GT which has been promoted since I made my nomination. This seems to be a well established precedent. If there is to be a new requirement requiring commanders to be included, will all of the existing topics need to be reviewed? In most cases there is a more clear cut chain of command than existed in 14th century Gascony, so I assume the answer would be "yes".
  • In Gascony the situation was not at all clear cut. The French operated on a regional command basis - arguably one reason why they lost. In addition the repeated death, capture and replacement of commanders means that there is either no commander{s} to nail down or a plethora of stubs, several of which sprang from red links created when I wrote these article. Overall command was a royal prerogative, and Philip's son, Duke John, was appointed to nominal overall command late in the campaign. But he never saw action, nor came particularly near it, nor, so far as the sources I have show, made any notable decision which was actually carried out. The English situation is more clear cut, with the English King's commercial contract with Derby laying out reasonably clearly that he was in command, a role which he filled in practice.
  • This may not be a good reason, but I am also concerned that for earlier periods adding a requirement to include the commanders, and leaving aside discussion as to whether they can be unambiguously identified, will create a requirement to promote articles about figures for whom military activity was a small part of their notability. (This would certainly deter me from writing about them.)
  • While I understand that many GT noms will spark a debate as to just what should be included, I can forsee quibblingly detailed debates requiring "expert" knowledge to ascertain just who to classify as leaders in, for example, Wikipedia:Featured topics/Battles of the Greco-Persian Wars.
  • Leaving campaign GT and FTs as needing to cover a specific geographic area and time span and include an article on the campaign and separate articles on each of the main military clashes during it seems to me to be clearer, as well as more appropriate.
