Process

Nominating an article

A user can only nominate one article per month. Nominations should NOT be made just to ask for advice on improving an article.

  1. Click the tab above the page labeled "Add topic" to create a new post.
  2. Do not add a post subject!
  3. Add the following template and nothing else, supplying the parameters for your signature, the title of the article you're nominating, and optionally, a comment:
    {{subst:Gan|Article name|~~~~|comment = Optional comment. ~~~~}}
  4. Save the page.

If you see a new level three section with the name of your nominated article as well as your signature (and a comment, if you included one), then you've successfully submitted a good article nomination.

Voting on nominations

Please familiarise yourself with the following criteria prior to voting. 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.
  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.

To vote or comment on a nomination, start your reply in one of three ways:

  • * '''SUPPORT:'''
  • * '''OPPOSE:'''
  • * '''COMMENT:'''

This should be followed by your message, and a signature. There is no need to ping the nominator.

  • SUPPORT Fine article. I assume the current red links are going to be created pages relatively soon so that's fine. Only thing I wonder is if there is a better substitute for circa in the infobox like something that means by. That's not even a minor problem though in fairness. 𝄞 StrubberContributions 22:56, 30 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • SUPPORT Seems good enough to me. It says what it needs to say, without adding too much fluff for the sake of length. Shiro Mephistopheles (talk) 16:25, 5 July 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • @Diegg24: Oo – this is quite good, but before I leave my comments I have to ask: the last major edits were made in October 2023; is everything still up to date history-wise? The history section also mentions elections for 4 November 2023—did those ever occur? :] Template:ZedSig (talk contribs) at 14:17, 14 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @Noone: I don't know ; I asked the creator and they haven't responded yet. User:Diegg24 (talk contribs) at 10:21, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    … I just found out that it was rated 29/30 according to the Hubbard System, which according to Matthew, should be a Good or Featured article. Diegg24talk 14:11, 19 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • COMMENT: Agreed, it hasn't been updated in months. The odds are very high that it's likely out of date. I crawled around the creator's sandbox, and as of May 4th, seemed to still be in progress and in the middle of an update. Until they respond, I am disinclined to vote in support.

New Eiffel and the Micronational Olympic Federation

Empire of Pacifico

Nominator: Diegg24

Comment by nominator: It is quite short but in my opinion it is quite good. Diegg24talk 15:37, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • OPPOSE: The comment by the author sums it up: it's too short in many of its sections. Comprehensiveness is one of the marks of a good article. That is not seen here enough for me to warrant putting my vote of support at this time. Shiro Mephistopheles (talk) 16:11, 5 July 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I agree that it is short in many sections, but the information provided is worded very well Diegg24talk 17:04, 5 July 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Comment@Diegg24: It is definitely well-written – and there is nothing inherently wrong with short articles – but there is definitely some room for expansion in this case! For instance, Geography could use some more content, including the addition of short sections (if applicable) on the most notably different geographical features of each administrative division. See, for example, Republic of Molossia#Geography; and for a good example of a decent climate section, see Geography of New Eiffel#Climate. Also, this could use a Culture section.. even if it is similar to its macronation, it is still worth noting. It could even be a single section with two or three large paragraphs. Republic of Molossia#Culture and Abeldane Empire#Culture are decent examples of such a section. Best of luck and happy editing, Template:ZedSig (talk contribs) at 23:15, 6 July 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Landopia

Nominator: ZuppaDiCarlo (talk contribs) at 20:36, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • COMMENT: Has quite a few red links here, but it's not bad overall. If the red links are fixed, I wouldn't mind people putting on their stamp of approval. Shiro Mephistopheles (talk) 16:16, 5 July 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Since they are not a "work in progress", I have to remove them, however they will be reinserted as I create the pages in question (for example the page on the Armed Forces of Landopia, on the Insula Maiestatis, on the Order of Merit of the Kingdom of Landopia). Thanks for the comment. KingCarlo (talk) 18:46, 5 July 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Flag of New Eiffel

Nominator: Template:ZedSig (talk contribs) at 18:28, 26 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • SUPPORT: A fairly comprehensive article about the New Eiffelic flag. Its not enough to sway my vote, but the article will need a look around with a minor edit or two: there are a few redlinks to speedy-deleted articles, and some sentences are worded a bit clumsily.

May 2024 Malusian Federal elections

Nominator: --X (talk) 04:56, 1 April 2024 (UTC) (contribs)Reply[reply]
  • OPPOSE Before going deep into the article itself there is the glaring problem that this article is about an election that has not yet occured. While that is fine for this article as it has quite a bit of background at first glance, rather than being a redlink saver like other articles, I don't think it would be appropriate to give this good article status when it is still ongoing. There is still over a month of activity that will be going into this election, let alone the results, that could radically change the content and what is in it. While it seems to be in a decent state now, making it a GA with the understanding that it is still going to be under development for a little bit of time isn't something I am comfortable with. I think the election this article is about should run its course and then it should be renominated again once all possible content is added to it. 𝄞 StrubberContributions 14:37, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Understandable. X (talk) 14:52, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • COMMENT: Page appears to have been speedy deleted under MW:G8 on 7 April 2024. I cannot find any trace of similar pages/intended pages, leading me to assume that the page as a whole no longer exists. As such, I think it would be fair to automatically disqualify this nomination.

  • COMMENT: Page was redirected to multiple titles within the span of a week, before being deleted on 22 April under MW:G9. I think this is fairly reasonable grounds to automatically disqualify this nomination. Sertor (Chat) 23:08, 12 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
