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 71 good articles out of a total of 26,778 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=25 June 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.

  • OPPOSE This article is far too long to read or navigate comfortably. I'm sorry but the amount of detail it goes into is completely unnecessary. Have those voting in support actually looked through the whole thing? "Nations unilaterally recognized by Vishwamitra" alone is a list of almost every macronation in the world with a large paragraph saying pretty much the same thing next to each and every one. Under "bilateral relations", the section on Karnia-Ruthenia is longer than the "Main Article" it's ostensibly a summary of. This is just far, far too long going into unnecessary, repetitive detail and could be substantially shortened. Austenasia (talk) 14:04, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE As per Jonathan. It fails on the first two criteria given for good articles. It's highly repetitive, near-impossible to navigate and read (some cells contain 300+ word paragraphs), and goes into far too much detail. An article's quality isn't directly proportional to its word count. In particular, the content in the 'notes' cells would be far better presented in short bullet points or similar.

Remove GA Status from Kingdom of Burdette

Nominator: Sertor (Chat) 20:32, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Problematic issues raised during the initial GA discussion remain unfixed. The article as a whole requires a copyedit, for which the relevant template was removed in an edit war. Several sections such as the Constitutional convention and the First elections are rather poor. Whilst this certainly isn't a poor article, it certainly isn't befitting of good article status.

I recently nominated this article a few months ago however it unfortunately didn't stand up well to the final vote.

  • SUPPORT It's clear that this article has had a lot of effort put into it. I would go as far as to say this is the best article about a micronational convention on this site.

  • SUPPORTI wonder how this even got good article status Chancellor.jaredbarker (talk) 04:37, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Tbf it does fulfill all the criteria. Certainly in regards to being well-written, worse articles have been approved. It's not a stub, either; that's where an article's too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of a subject and is capable of expansion, and I don't think that's the case here. Unless we're saying that some topics simply can't have GA articles written on them (and I'd actually agree with that, but I don't think a geographical feature is one of the those topics), how would you suggest the article be improved to make it GA-standard? It's a garden path; what more is there to write? Austenasia (talk) 06:58, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Per Jonathan Jayden Dagsa (talkcontribsuploads) 23:46, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

Remove GA Status from Kingdom of Ebenthal

Nominator: Flag of Wendatia.svg jonas | talk 17:41, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

I am pretty convinced most of the article is false. I will give a quick rundown on why, but I recommend you read through this. One of the old images featured an American Exit Sign. Remember that Ebenthal is located in Brazil. When another user mentioned it, the author of the article had changed the image to something else. Doesn't help that he cleared that section of the talk page.

  • OPPOSE Ebenthal's article is one of the best examples of a well-written article and also one of the few to achieve good article status despite being written by an user of whose English is not the first language. I would request @WeaponizingArchitecture: to simply not contribute highly in criticizing other's works and efforts, but to contribute highly to improve your works which lacks efforts. Vishwamitra flag icon.svg  • Oritsu.me  • Let's talk here  • Contribs 02:55, 25 June 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Again, this matter when ONE guy accused the article of being fake was extensively debated in the discord server after a conflict, it got the attention of three administrators and mods, and it was solved, until you resolved, for whatever reason (which doesn't seems to be an act of good faiht, if one ask me) to dig in the the article's excluded comments (which were excluded following months the matter was settled, for being purposelesly there; If I would hide something, I wouldn't delete it literally 8 months after the matter was solved, would I? Out of nowhere?). I mean, with what purpose dig in if not find hypothetical reasons to mess with the article? I won't discuss the whole RESOLVED affair with that ONE wrong image which was changed precisely for correction and accuracy AGAIN and after DISCUSSION involving administrators Zed and Luxor you are not aware (because it does not concern you) and simply making accusations without knowing the full facts. Honestly, this is getting really tiresome. Based on such accusation, shall I pin articles as dubious when they have no sources or as little as three, four sources? For God's sake... live your own life and leave my micronation alone. Arthur Brum (talk) 18:06, 6 June 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Despite the matter being resolved, it's interesting to note the particular judgment of some people and the resources they employ to try to harm other people, even under the guise of improving the site, which the nominator himself doesn't do, as seen in articles that the nominator contributed, as an example, the Co-operative Republic of Wendatia. The criteria that would eliminate the article under analysis would certainly also disqualify the nominator's article; this, of course, if the article was reasonable enough to dispute the Good Article label. The best thing would be, in the first place, to discard this childish attempt to harm other people efforts. Second, should be abolished this opportunity for anyone, without criteria, to decide what suits the site in terms of standard and excellence. It's ok to have a right to indicate articles to be Good Articles, but the decision should be made by minimally qualified people. This privilege MicroWiki has given its users has been used regretfully by some individuals. Karno-Ruthenian Government (talk) 15:19, 6 June 2021 (UTC-3)
  • OPPOSE Ebenthal's article is one of the best articles on the wiki, the best of its own government's knowledge, and in no way should it lose its good article status which has been achieved by its merit of a very well written, articulate and totally truthful article. Sildavian Crown and Government (talk) 15:23, 6 June 2021 (UTC-3)
    • COMMENT @Jaydenfromcanada: Also the photos don't have any metadata.

Flag of Wendatia.svg jonas | talk 03:52, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Unless nominator provides examples of dubious photos it seems like the article is fine. For example: photo relating to snow in Novesfora relates to "METEOROLOGIA PREVÊ NEVE PARA ITATIAIA, NA DIVISA DE MINAS COM O RIO. Likewise, seat of Minsitry of Foreign Affairs relates to a very similar but different image by Emanuel Pavia, seen here. The photos accused of being dubious are not present in the article.

    • COMMENT I also find it suspicious that they changed the image 3 times since then, however the caption has remained the same on 2 of the images. For example:
      "Pedro II College noble room, designated as one of the three usable rooms by the Tribune of Truth, along with the UNESA court room and the UFRJ Noble Saloon.[e] These rooms are theorically of free use by alumni. Nonetheless, the Tribune of Truth has never used any of those." was a VERY SIMILAR caption to the previous, with the previous being "Pedro II College conference room, designated as one of the three usable rooms by the Tribune of Truth, along with the UNESA court room and the UFRJ Noble Saloon." It just makes it harder for me to believe the article if they changed the image 3 times and the caption has mostly remained the same for 2 of them. Flag of Wendatia.svg jonas | talk 12:04, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
      • COMMENT This claim can't be warranted for removal of one's GA since that can be rendered as an opinion, they don't really relate to an article being dubious or not and we would then have to review all the past GAs for changed images with the same subtitles.

You are simply ignoring every explanation, you are completelly ignoring the fact that this discussin has already happened before, you are ignoring that this discussion had already been taken to adminship, you are ignoring that there have been a whole talk on this in the Discord server months ago, basing your claim on the deleted talk page which was the beggining for the further discussion which took place at the Discord server, and which was only deleted MONTHS after the matter was solved, because there was no reason to leave it there. And the worse part is that you are cementing your claim to falsity based on a "fake imagem" that is no longer in the article since last year, and, again, ignoring my explanation of why it was there and why it was removed. You are actually ignoring everything to support your narrative, which is clearer now given how you said "the author wiped out", while occulting the facts behind it as I mentioned. Worth notice, you are doing this after, for some reason, give yourself the trouble to check not the article's editing record, but the talk page's editing history/record. I mean, who does this with no purpose? And you stay wanna say that people can't talk of you acting out of jealousy. Why not, when it seems exactly this? Arthur Brum (talk) 00:06, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
    • COMMENT @Jaydenfromcanada: The link to the talk page archive has the evidence to back up my claims.

    • COMMENT And even so, Emmanuel Paiva is a known photographer from Rio de Janeiro who takes photo of every street possible since 2005. He took photos even of my house. Also, about the Itatiaia photo, you can see I've made no false claims since on its description it is written that the photo pre-dates Ebenthal's existence as it is from Itatiaia National Park, where part of Ebenthal came to lay claim later: "Rare occurrence of snow in the geographical region where the city of Novesfora is currently located, pre-dating Ebenthali independence and the city's foundation" is what is written. It wasn't anything like "Photo of Ebenthal in 1984". Furthermore, the one wrong photo which had been PREVIOUSLY on the article was added: 1. when I was creating the article, as a matter of illustration as the article was being created and constantly edited. 2. It was removed upon noticed and substituted correctly and have been unchanged since. an you noticed well, Mr. Jonas wants to remove the GA status of the article over a photo that is no longer present at the article for months, even before the article was nominated for GA status.

Equals, in some aspects even surpass, articles on languages in English wikipedia. Astonishing. Really deserving GA status. Arthur Brum (talk) 20:22, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Apart from the minor TODO issue, this should be the model for what articles about languages should look like. Luxor (talk) 08:26, 21 June 2021 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT While this article will never truly be complete, it is far and away one of the highest-quality articles on the wiki. It is time to return one of MicroWiki's first Good Articles to its rightful place. (The only reason this article lost GA status in the first place, was because it got mangled during the moves from MicroWikia to Referata to MicroWiki.org.uk. I fixed that mangling many, many years ago; but never reapplied for GA status, out of misplaced perfectionism.) /swέna/ 💬 04:34, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you Indradhanush for re-nominating this, and thank you to everyone for the kind words. /swέna/ 💬 02:08, 23 June 2021 (UTC)
