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 92 good articles out of a total of 30,299 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 January 2022}} 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.

Order of the Golden Sun of Melite

Nominator: Mtonna257, President of  Melite 14:04, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

First GA nomination of the year 2022 I guess :) ...
I am trying this for the first time, even though I'm accustomed to using the MicroWiki. Of course, I will welcome all criticism, as a way to improve the article. Thank you very much for your consideration and Happy New Year! Mtonna257, President of  Melite 14:04, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT I support the nomination for Good Article, it is very well structured and uses good grammar. It is also categorized nicely. Sauce (talk) 15:19, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT reason why the article is good, it is structured, and it is also very good itself.President of Rhodesia —Preceding unsigned comment added by President of Rhodesian Republic (talkcontribs)
  • SUPPORT I support the nomination for Good Article, good structure and very well written Jdcasdf (talk) 16:46, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I wholeheartedly agree that this article deserves good status, The King-Emperor of Haskaria
  • OPPOSE Only two sections of this article are longer than two sentences, it is not long enough or detailed enough to warrent good article status. Much more about the history, importance, culture, and other aspects of the order should be added before this becomes good article in my opinion. 𝄞 StrubberContributions ♩ 20:09, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I support it. A very beautiful and informative article, made at a first-class level. Ulmis (talk) 01:42, 2 January 2022 (UTC +2)
  • SUPPORT I fully support the nomination for Good Article, the page is linguistically developed, informative and provides a plethora of information. Rafe Burfield (talk) 22:53, 2 January 2022 (GMT)
  • OPPOSE This needs a lot more content before it can be accepted as a good article. Most of the sections really need to be expanded. In my opinion, the recipient section is a bit messy, maybe once there is more to the article then this could be moved to a different list article? Matt talk ☼ 23:44, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I fully endorse the nomination for Good Article. Said article is well structured, easy to read, features well-organised tables and could serve as a 'template' for future decoration articles. Padzim (talk) 21:37, 3 January 2022 AD (UTC+2)
  • SUPPORT I support the nomination for Good Article. It's detailed, clear, easy to read and well formatted. NewAthens (talk) 20:03, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE A brief glance shows that every section is a stub. In addition, there are very few references, whilst sections of the article are formatted incorrectly, ie. "Recipients of this grade of the Order are automatically Grand Masters of the Order." This should ideally use {{efn|name="name"|Words here}} In addition, I'm debating as to whether the images actually contribrute to the article - out of the two featured, both are portraits of recipients, which in my view doesn't add much to the article at all. .Rush gif.gif. Logan >w<  • .Terry Tibbs talk to me . 22:15, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Everything is stubby, even worse than my own Penn Federal Republic. Devinpurcell (talk) 17:48, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE The article would greatly benefit from expansion. As it stands, the majority sections on the article are very poorly expanded. Sertor (Chat) 00:24, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Many updates since last nominated.

  • NEUTRAL To be quite honest, it has way too many redlinks and needs to be spell-checked as well as a check to grammar and capitalization. The content is not bad, that is why this isn't an opposition. User:Devinpurcell (talk) 15:17, 11 January 2022 (UTC)

Nominator: Devinpurcell (talk) 15:12, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

After many restructuring and changed from the gracious opinions, suggestions, and criticism from the community, I am yet again nominating this article. I hope that you can provide feedback if applicable with your vote. Thanks! Devinpurcell (talk) 15:12, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT Nice article, is a touch stubby but I like it. Good luck! Youraveragecontributor (talk) 15:18, 11 January 2022 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Well written and accurately portrayed history and information. Easy to read through. Sluke91 (talk) 06:17, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Nominator: Anthony Ramirez 3rd (talk) 04:06, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE Not very well organized, I suggest in a Sandbox just rewriting it, the content is fine, however the organization is terrible. User:Devinpurcell (talk) 16:36, 13 January 2022 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT Exceptional detail in the article, with my only reservation being that it could be organized a bit better, otherwise, it's very good. Mtonna257, President of  Melite 20:13, 13 January 2022 (UTC)
  • NEUTRAL It's alright, nothing special. Youraveragecontributor (talk) 20:16, 20 January 2022 (UTC)
