MicroWiki:Good articles

From MicroWiki, the micronational encyclopædia
Jump to: navigation, search

Good articles are considered to be the best articles on MicroWiki as determined by MicroWiki's editors. Before being listed as a good article, articles must be nominated and voted upon for accuracy, neutrality, comprehensiveness, structure and style. This project is designed to help improve article quality on MicroWiki and reward good article editing and creation. At present, there are 46 good articles out of a total of 10,943 articles in MicroWiki. A small green star (This star symbolises good content on MicroWiki.) on the top right corner of an article's page indicates that the article is of good quality.


A good article is one that is:

  1. Well-written: its prose is engaging, coherent, clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct. There should be a minimal number of red links.
  2. Comprehensive: it neglects no major facts or details, is of substantial length but does not go into unnecessary detail, remaining focused on the main topic.
  3. Accurate: it is well-researched and its claims are verifiable and not in dispute.
  4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias.
  5. Illustrated: it should, where possible, be illustrated with appropriate images with succinct captions.
  6. Well-structured: it should have a concise introduction that summarises the topic and a system of hierarchical section headings with a substantial but not overwhelming table of contents.


Before nominating an article, nominators may wish to receive feedback by asking Austenasia, Joseph Kennedy, or another administrator. Nominators must be sufficiently familiar with the subject matter to deal with objections during the GA process. Nominators who are not significant contributors to the article should consult the author and/or regular editors of the article prior to a nomination. Nominators are expected to respond positively to constructive criticism and to make an effort to address objections promptly.

If a nominator feels that an article satisfies all the criteria, the article can be nominated by any user on the nomination page making sure that they provide the title of the article, a link to it and the signature of the nominating user. The article will then be reviewed by the community and voted on over a period of seven days after being nominated, with nominators and authors of the article being encouraged to respond to constructive criticism and to address objections promptly. While the number of votes in support or opposition are the main thing taken into account, the arguments on each side will also be considered.

Following the seven day period, Austenasia, Joseph Kennedy, or another administrator will determine consensus of the community and it will either be approved or rejected. If an article is approved, the community deems that it satisfies the criteria and it will be listed as a good article. If an article is rejected, the articles does not satisfy the criteria and an explanation of why will usually be provided by the reviewing users. Rejected articles should only be nominated again after one month following the previous nomination, if progress has been made to improve the article since.


To use the good article template, add {{GA|revision=123456|date=29 April 2017}} to the top of the article. The correct revision and date are the ones that are most recent, just prior to the article being approved. For help on how to use the template correctly, contact an administrator.

Please can people read through an article properly before supporting it; if you had done, you'd probably noticed some of the numerous mistakes I've just had to fix to bring this article up to scratch. However, those now gone, there's really nothing wrong with it, so approved. Austenasia (talk) 08:58, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Virtual Football World Cup 2016

Nominator: Tom 01.45, 06/2/17 (GMT)

Comments from archive 7 taken into account. Definitely improved the article and believe it to be more professional. Lots of effort gone in and if rejected appreciate more detailed feedback.

  • OPPOSE The article starts off by mentioning things like the FISA and DRF; it's not explained what these acronyms stand for, and there's not even a link to their pages. There's irregular use of capital letters and numbers ("Official Stamp", "two clubs/16 teams"), and - most importantly - there's no explanation of how the football games described were played. It says they were virtual, but was this via an online game, a simulator...? Austenasia (talk) 09:58, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE As above. Additionally, the introductory section is a mess, and there are no categories. There is still much room for improvement. ricky háblame 03:56, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE As above. Many organizational issues. Nathan | Kingdom of Florenia | 17:00, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
