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 76 good articles out of a total of 27,272 articles in MicroWiki. A small blue symbol (This symbol symbolizes good content on MicroWiki.) on the top right corner of an article's page indicates that the article is of good quality.

Criteria

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.

Process

Before nominating an article, nominators may wish to receive feedback by asking an 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. A user should only nominate one article each month. 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. A nomination with several blank "support" votes and only a few "oppose" votes may still be rejected if those "oppose" votes make very good arguments against it. Neither will a simply majority be considered; broad consensus needs to be reached, which will be decided at the discretion of the administrator who closes the vote.

Following the seven day period, an 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 officially be listed as a Good Article. If an article is rejected, the article 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, and only if improvements have been made to improve the article since.

In the last week of each month, all Good Articles approved that month or the previous month will be voted on by the community. The approved Good Article with the highest number of votes (with admin consensus providing a deciding vote in the case of a tie) will be Featured on the Main Page for at least the first fourteen days of the new month (the Featured Article for the remainder of the month will be a previously approved Good Article decided by consensus of the admins, to ensure articles are not only ever Featured once).


Template

To use the good article template, add {{GA|revision=123456|date=24 July 2021}} 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.

I've nominated this page before however it unfortunately never passed the final vote. Personally I believe that it is of a decent quality and fit for Good Article status. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 14:53, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT This is a pretty good biographical article I feel, the only issues I noticed looking through was that the 163rd reference has an error and I believe that for dates with manual of style if you have the same year mentioned in the same section twice then you only include the year in the first one. Example: On 6 May 2020, Mark lost his shoe. On 7 May he found it." and then you only include the year again if the year has changed, I could be wrong on that but that's what I remember, other than those small things this is pretty good.

  • Note: I have been working on this page a good couple years up to this point, besides maybe adding a couple more references to other mw articles (so Hardly references at all) and maybe fixing the austenasian infobox at the bottom to put it below references, which I can’t figure out how to do, I think it qualifies for a GA status. As always while I’d like support, all feedback and constructive criticism is welcomed and encouraged. —MSTarget (talk) 03:14, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Nominator: Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 11:58, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
  • Note: I've been working on it for months in an attempt to help it get to where it is, it's almost reached consensus last time it was submitted. If you have any reasons to oppose the article, list them in your opposition and they should be fixed in the next 24 hours since you had posted it. I am constantly working on this article when I find ways to improve it, especially when others give me reason to do so. Every time this article is submitted I'm working on it constantly as per your suggestions until the nominations are voted on. If you have complaints with the article, list them in your opposed then please take a look at the article again a good while later, because your issues may be gone. - Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 11:58, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This is about the fourth time it's been submitted and honestly I don't know if it's going to achieve GA. Though, it has improved a lot since last time and is an amazing article. After Burdette got removed, I'm not sure that Ela'r'oech would make it this time around, even if I still sort of want it to. Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 13:21, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE There are still a large amount of issues scattered across the article, and I do not believe this article will be ready for GA status without a compete copyedit. For starters, dates either flick between [month dateth] (eg. May 9th), [month date, year] (eg. April 18th, 2021) or [date month] (eg. 9 May), with the first two being the incorrect format for Good Articles. Secondly, there are still issues with formality, such as "Runnymeden War *DID NOT COME INTO EFFECT* - Was an attempted war" or "had considered attempting to join the Grand Unified Micronational, however it decided they may not have been accepted" - the latter is unnecessary detail which should be omitted.

    Some details such as "Note: Brandon Jacobs is not included as his membership in Parliament was a posthumous award, not considered to be a legal assumption of office. However, Charles Madgett is included as the King does have an Independent spot in Parliament, mainly to act for no internal conflict." should be formatted as an actual note instead of their current formatting. In addition, almost all sections seem rather short (although only a handful constitute as stubs, almost all of them are merely short - on their own this wouldn't be an issue however when almost the entire article has been formatted in such a manner it creates an issue). Another issue relating to the dates are a lack of specific dates - for example, the Military section features "In early October," without a year - if a reader was to take a look at this, they (and myself) would not know when it was specifically - was it a previous date? a future date? when specifically?

    One of the biggest issues that I have noticed whilst reading the article are poorly written sections, such as "are examples of that" in Art. This also reflects on the SPaG issues scattered throughout the article, with one of the most common issues that I've seen on this article, and indeed across MicroWiki, is the random usage of "it's" instead of "its" (eg. "it overhauled it's political system" instead of "Ela'r'oech overhauled its political system"). Finally some sections should either be expanded (such as Art), or completely omitted (such as Structure Rating System or Media Rating System) - I feel like sections such as Structure Rating System should be omitted from a main article and included in its own, high-quality article instead.

    I must finally add that there is absolutely no reason why this article cannot reach Good Article status - the fact that it has been submitted 4 times indicates that the authors are fully committed to improving this article, and is respectable to say the least. However, there are lots of issues that need to be ironed out before it can reach Good Article status, especially including a copyedit. If the nominees wish for some help to improve this article, then I would be happy to provide assistance. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 15:42, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

Nominator: Strubber (talk) 16:26, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

I believe that this is a good fit for good article status, this is my first time nominating an article so I appreciate any feedback,. Strubber (talk) 16:26, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT A very nice article throughout - ample references, images, infographics and a generally well written article. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 16:34, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT A very well detailed article, written keeping in mind of every small details related to the nation. It may be advised that for the section on foreign relations, either a table be made or a separate article on "Foreign relations of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon". Otherwise it's just fantastic.. love it and love the nation, and the peopl associated. Vishwamitra flag icon.svg  • Oritsu.me  • Let's talk here  • Contribs 13:17, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
    • COMMENT Thanks! For the foreign relations section I am not planning on letting it get any longer than it is now and instead making a dedicated page for it and thinning the main page to only include important and notable relations. The formatting for it on the page I believe looks good currently, but definitely won't if the current formatting it maintained as the list continues to expand.
