FANDOM


The Featured Articles of the wiki are articles that meet a certain requirement and show the best that the Western Wiki, has to offer.

What makes a featured article or what article should you nominate to feature? To answer that, we've prepared a list just in case someone should ask that, and it is as follows.

An article must...

  1. ...be well written, and detailed
  2. ...be unbiased, non-point of view
  3. ...be sourced with any and all available sources
  4. ...follow the Western Wiki's Manual of Style
  5. ...not be the object of any ongoing edit wars
  6. ...not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags (i.e. more sources, expand, etc)
  7. ...have a sufficient proper lead that can be used for the front page featured box
  8. ...have no, to little red links.
  9. ...have a complete, detailed biography if it's an article about a person

How to nominate:

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of featured status, putting it at the bottom of the list below; see criteria above.
  2. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is good enough; they will then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article (errors, style, organization, images, notability, sources).
  3. Supporters adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied
  4. The article is placed on the featured article list and added to the front page queue.

How to vote:

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterwards, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination.
    1. If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved.
  3. As stated above, any objections will be looked upon by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to please the objectors.
  4. Once all objectors' complaints have been solved (or the article has 5 supports and no objections after at least a week), the article will be added to the queue and be officially known as a "featured article".

Also remember to add {{nominated}} at the top of the article you are nominating.

In addition, put the number sign, #, next to your name so the votes can be counted. Please sign your posts as well!!

Every Sunday the next article in the queue will be highlighted on the Main Page as featured, marked with the {{featured article}} template and removed from the list of nominations. The beginning of the article then appears on the Main Page via the {{Main Page/Featured article}} template. Nominees that are inactive for a month will be eliminated from the nominations list.

Current StandingsEdit

These standings are determined by who has the most votes. This may, however, not be the way the winner is determined. Also, oppositions will lower the amount of votes you have, as long as they're for a good reason. Neutral does nothing.

NominationsEdit

There are no nominations currently.
