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 83 good articles out of a total of 29,278 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=3 December 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.

Nominations

2021 Georgienstinian presidential election

Nominator: Alexandre Olivier, Majority Leader of the National Congress of Georgienstine

This page was made in the past year as the Presidential Election was happening. With the election over, in my opinion, the page is detailed enough to be a Good Article. Thanks!

  • OPPOSE Not much has changed since it was last nominated 2 months ago. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 21:16, 17 October 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I Personally see it as a well done article of good quality. MSTarget (talk)
  • SUPPORT Personally, I see one or two little things to change, as the size of images and their position in the text for example, but in general seems to me a good article. Karno-Ruthenian Government (talk)
  • OPPOSE Not necessarily a bad article by any means, but I can see quite a bit which should be fixed before it's GA-worthy. The article doesn't need to be broken down into so many small sub-sections (some of which are only a sentence or two long), and some parts about past events seem to be written in present tense. Also, do make sure that references at the end of a sentence go after the full stop.

Winterspell

Previous Nominator: Chandrachur Basu. Current Nominator: King Petrus I
  • SUPPORT It's a great article. Matt talk ☼ 01:40, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Activly improved over the years, I like where it is now. MSTarget (talk)
  • SUPPORT this article is extremely informative and easy to read. I feel like I belong to Winterspell having read the article. (Ameristralia talk) 09:37, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Informative, a good amount of images. Perhaps is a good idea to padronize the size of images, but is a nice article anyway. Karno-Ruthenian Government (talk)
  • SUPPORT Austenasia (talk) 12:11, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

North Atlantic Diplomatic Union

Nominator: .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 20:09, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

Ela'r'oech

Nominator: Charles
  • SUPPORT Because of course guys we already know I'd vote on this. Great article. Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 05:39, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT It is a good article and also a functioning state. It also fits the Standard for MWiki Good Articles. Mtonna257 Flagicon D.C.R. Melite.png 20:16, 13 November 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The stuck record is here to point out that almost none of the issues that I pointed out the last time this was nominated have been fixed. For more info on these, pleas check back to previous nominations. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 16:24, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  • REVISION The History section was revised for era "groups," of which there are two. There's no real stubs other than those era sections though as far as I'm aware or would count. Ela'r'oech Charles (talk) 19:08, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT This article has been meticulously reviewed and edited for years, and deserves GA status, for it has achieved what this site considers greatness. .User:Andrew I of Pontunia
  • SUPPORT Charles has clearly worked very hard on this page and it deserves GA. The sections are instresting to read and I can easily find information for Ela'r'oech there. One small issue with the page is that some sections are too long. User:TheMilesWiki
  • SUPPORT Charles and Bryce have spent countless nights restless, leaning over their computers to fix and edit this article. However there are various errors that I would deem minor. Fix those and it'll be a solid 10/10. Christoph Billung
  • OPPOSE Yes, this article still has the issues it had last time it was nominated. They really need to be fixed before it is acheives the title, no matter how minor they are. I apperciate the effort that has gone into making this article, but a mit more time to fix the minor issues will be worth it. Matt talk ☼ 22:43, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Not bad --MSTarget (talk)
  • SUPPORT It looks quite good, though would suggest a bit more copy editing work on it, and a lot of stuff on the dispute I think could use some other terms rather than how it is phrased at the moment, though otherwise it is a quite long article. --𝙷𝙸𝙼 𝙲𝚑𝚛𝚒𝚜𝚝𝚒𝚗𝚊 𝙸 𝚘𝚏 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚘𝚕𝚍𝚒𝚊 Flag of Cycoldia Real.svg (𝚝𝚊𝚕𝚔) 10:18, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE As above; hasn't fixed previous issues pointed out on previous nominations. At first glance date formatting isn't to standard in introduction.
    • REJECTED Please remember that a simple majority of votes isn't what we take into account when deciding these. "They worked hard" and "Not bad" aren't really of the same weight as "problems previously noted haven't been fixed". Even some of the supports are pointing out problems. Austenasia (talk) 12:11, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

Revoke GA status from Federated Republics of A1

Nominator: Flag of Australis.svgDaniel HamiltonEnquiriesMy Work 23:42, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

This article has way too many short sections to be a Good Article these days. I recommend that GA status be revoked.

Penn Federal Republic

Nominator: User:Devinpurcell ([[User talk:Devinpurcell])

My second month requesting good article status for the Penn Federal Republic page. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please leave me a comment on my talkpage. Thank you! Devinpurcell (User talk:Devinpurcell) 13:22, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

    • REJECTED I'm not sure why nobody voted! Austenasia (talk) 12:11, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

David Brooke, Lord Mayor of The Sovereign Municipality of Ameristralia

Nominator: User:Ameristralia (User talk:Ameristralia) 14:27, 13 November 2021 (UTC)

I look forward to the feedback and constructive criticism from the community. Thank you for your consideration.

  • SUPPORT Really nice Devinpurcell (talk) 14:20, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPPORT Matt talk ☼ 00:49, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT There are a few things that could do with improving. Some sections need expanding, 'Mr Brooke' should ideally be changed to simply be 'Brooke' imo whilst more images are needed. However, this is nonetheless worthy of GA status. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 15:32, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

/thank you User:Aenopia I had had that thought but was not sure if I wanted to. I have edited and the article does read better. Thanking you - David Brooke comment added by Ameristralia (talkcontribs)
