Nookipedia:Featured Articles

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Nookipedia has a system in place to recognize some of the best articles ever created.

A list of all articles that have been featured can be found here. You can recognize featured articles by the featured badge that appears to the right of the article title, and above the article content.

The random feature article system is not dependent on the Featured Article status and is done manually. If you notice a flaw in the system or want to make a suggestion, stick it on a talk page of an active bureaucrat.

Only staff members can award the featured badge to an article, but members may nominate articles to be featured by sending a private message to an active administrator, preferably Jake, on the forums. An official method of recommending featured articles is currently in development, below.

This page is an official policy page This is a proposed and possible future policy. Please leave comments and suggestions on the talk page.
Voting
This page uses voting to decide about featured articles. To use the voting method, you will need to know these template codes.

Adding a comment is optional but all users must use their signature with it to prove who's voted. Only one vote is allowed per editor. As a general guideline, if the vote goes past +3 then it is successful, but if it goes past -3 then it is denied.

Support Support {{Support}} This is used to show support in favor of a nomination.

Oppose Oppose {{Oppose}} This is used to oppose or counter a nomination.

Neutral Neutral {{Neutral}} This is used to show that a user is neutral about a nomination.

Comment Comment {{Comment}} This does not count as a vote and could be commenting on a user's comment or on the nomination.


Featured articles are top-quality articles presented in the main page. They are chosen by our editors. If an article meets or exceeds Nookipedia's featured article quality standards, it can be nominated to be featured. Here are the standards articles must meed or exceed to be considered featured.

The article must...
  1. ...be well-written, standard, and encyclopedic. This means there is good grammar, proper spelling, no bias, and no opinions,.
  2. ...cover information from all appearances in the Animal Crossing series. Otherwise, the information must be complete.
  3. ...be free from all improvement tags (such as {{construction}}, {{cleanup}})
  4. ...contain a reasonable amount of good-quality images.
  5. ...have a minimal amount of red links.
  6. ...have a long enough lead paragraph to present in the main page.
  7. ...have a reasonable length.
  8. ...adhere to any article-related policies

Nomination process

As long as editors are autoconfirmed, they can nominate articles to be featured by submitting a nomination in the section below. The voting process works similarly to voting on featured images; registered users may use the templates above to vote or make comments. Once they have voted, they must sign their comments with ~~~~.

Nominations will be held open for at least a week for users to vote - at the end of the voting period, a Administrator, Bureaucrat, or Director will determine the result and close the vote, and will feature the article if the nomination passes. Votes that are inadequately supported or irrelevant may not be included for the sake of consensus.

Once the article is featured, a {{feature}} badge is placed on the top of the article.

Articles can also be removed from their featured status if there is a major flaw or if the article does not maintain changing standards. Staff members also reserve the right to remove any nominations that are made in bad faith or poorly justified.

A list of featured articles can be found here.

Nominations

Gabi

I think the page for Gabi, the peppy rabbit, is our highest quality page on any villager, and has more and current info then the other villagers with featured articles. ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 20:01, October 15, 2016 (EDT)

Comment Comment I noticed a broken file link on the article. If you could fix that (and maybe add some house information for New Leaf), I'd be willing to support. Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 13:10, October 16, 2016 (EDT)
Comment Comment I just added NL house info, but I don't know where to get a good quality image of Gabi's client image from Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (The broken file link Red was referring to). Apart from that, everything else looks good I think. ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 03:13, October 18, 2016 (EDT)
Comment Comment I think any problems this page had (including the broken file link) have been fixed, so if everything looks good to everyone else, I think this page is ready to be a featured article now. ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 05:20, January 7, 2017 (EST)
Support Support Due to the fixed problems and general completeness of the article, I now most definitely will support this nomination. Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 11:10, January 7, 2017 (EST)

Comment Comment Missing an image? Particularly, the Wild World picture frame with her in it. Mario Signature.png 00:46, January 8, 2017 (EST)

Comment Comment We don't have any pictures of the WW villager pics on here or any other source, and Project Villager states that WW villager pics aren't necessary. Additionally, none of the other villager pages that are featured articles have them either. ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 00:44, January 9, 2017 (EST)

Comment Comment I think this nomination should be closed, it has been going on for nearly a year. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 08:01, September 28, 2017 (EDT)

Comment Comment We only have one vote on this nomination. Are you sure you don't want to give your opinion before I close it? Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 12:43, September 28, 2017 (EDT)
