Fire Emblem Wiki:Featured Articles

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem Wiki information. By Fans, for Fans.
Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the Featured Articles page. This is where editors of Fire Emblem Wiki nominate pages for featured status on the front page of this wiki. Featured articles should include the following:

  1. Proper American English. That means everything must be written in American English (ex: color and not colour) and have proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
  2. Lengthy and detailed, but not contain repeating information to make it appear longer (aside from templates).
  3. Well organized so each information flows nicely.
  4. Cite sources and cite them properly.
  5. Properly categorized. No category? No nomination.
  6. Contains the most up-to-date information about the article.
  7. No notice templates. No template should be included on the page that marks it or a section as a stub, nor should any section. As well, no page should have a grammar template on it.
  8. NOT be copied from Wikipedia nor Fire Emblem Wikia or other Fire Emblem wiki.

There are also specific rules to nominating an article which are as follows:

Rules

  1. A minimum of four (4) votes in support of the article are needed for a page to become featured.
  2. You cannot vote in support for the article you have nominated.
  3. All votes should be placed properly under the support or oppose sections, with your vote starting off with #, and explaination on why you think this is a page worthy of being featured, and finally ending with your signature (~~~~). For instance: "# I really like the Ike page. It has a lot of information about the character! ~~~~." Any vote without a proper signature will be removed. As well, any vote that merely says: "I approve" "I like this page" or anything similar will be removed too. A perfect example of a vote would be: "I think this page has a lot of helpful information and it is clear enough to assist me on knowing about cavaliers."

Opposition Guidelines

  1. You cannot use an opposition vote simply because you hate the subject (like you hate a certain villian).
  2. Opposition votes should only be used when the article does not meet the requirements above.

If an administrator deems that a particular opposition does not follow these guidelines, it will be negated.

Current Nominations

Zelgius

Well-written article, fairly complete as to his story and stats, plenty of references and images throughout. I don't think the spoiler notice counts under "no notice templates", and we don't necessarily need to put the spoiler content on the main page if that would be an issue. Looks good to me. --Moydow (Support) 06:41, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Support

  1. A very detailed article with many clear sources, and certainly one of the best articles I've seen on the wiki. An amazing page for an amazing character! Fastesthe1 (talk) 01:08, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
  2. Definitely one of the better-built and better-polished articles we've got. Certainly a lot of work has gone into this top-class article...--Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 02:09, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Oppose

  1. Strongly oppose. There are MASSIVE unmarked spoilers on his identity on the very top of the article that are impossible, literally impossible to avoid. That is, the portrait of the Black Knight, the second paragraph of the abstract, and his infobox below his portrait. A reader who clicks on the article without prior to completing Radiant Dawn will find their enjoyment of the story SEVERELY degraded.
    1. Considering that the purpose of a featured article is to showcase something new to an audience who would not have known about it previously, this is an absolutely terrible idea. The spoilers within that page need to be moved and reformatted in such a way that a reader can avoid reading it if they do not wish to.
    2. The spoiler warning at the top does not count. That is merely adding insult to injury, as the reader will inevitably have noticed the Black Knight portrait before reading the warning box.
