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 66 good articles out of a total of 24,769 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.

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 initial criteria. If an article is rejected, the articles does not satisfy the initial 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.

In the last week of each month, nominations which have been approved by an administrator either that month or the previous month will be voted on by the community. The approved nomination with the highest number of votes (with admin consensus providing a deciding vote in the case of a tie) will officially be listed as a Good Article.

Good Article status is thereby reserved for the very best of the best articles, with no more than one per month being granted the status.


Template

To use the good article template, add {{GA|revision=123456|date=2 March 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.

For while I am currently re-writing and improving some sections as of this moment in time, I feel like it would be appropriate to nominate it now - even if it doesn't get through the suggestions would be pretty useful anyways.

  • SUPPORT Wow. Now this is a good article. Over 100 references, and each section goes into detail. Flag of Australis.svgDaniel RoscoeEnquiriesMy Work 23:57, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This is great! A variety of templates, photos, sections, refrences and more really completes it all. I agree with Daniel on this one. Good work! Atiera flag.svg] Liam Munroe  My Talk Page  Contribs  00:16, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I would wait a few more weeks, considering you just finished adding a large amount of content, and some sentences need closer inspection; several sentences could be worded better, as some are needlessly long or may be confusing to readers, and articles which have already been linked continue to be linked throughout. Some sentences use apostrophes ('for the foreseeable future', 'The Reform Act', 'Year micronational anniversary'), and I do not see the need for them. There are also several other minor grammatical mistakes. The article also uses a needless amount of citations just to reach a high amount, as for instance "[...] Ross would sign the constitution of the Glorious Anthean Republic alongside 17 other micronationalists." uses four; one citation, preferably the news article from Home-made Crown Journal would be ideal in that case. ★ ♥︎ Zed 。 (talk | edits | full) 13:49, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
