What makes a Good Article good?

An article must…

  • …be well-written and detailed.
  • …be unbiased, non-point of view.
  • …be sourced with all available references and appearances.
  • …follow the Manual of Style, Layout Guide, and all other wiki policies.
  • …not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags.
  • …have a proper lead, with a undetailed résumé of the article's contents.
  • …have no more than 6 redlinks and none in the introduction, infobox, or any templates.
  • …have significant information from all sources and appearances, especially a biography for character articles.
  • …provide at least one quote on the article.
  • …preferably include a "personality and characteristics" section on all character articles.
  • …include at least 2 images of sufficient quality to illustrate the article, if said images are available.
  • …pass review by the Bureau review panel.

If the article meets at least 5 of the prerequisites, the article is permitted to be held for nomination.

How to nominate:

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of Good status, putting it at the bottom of the list below.
  2. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is not good enough; they will then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article (errors, style, organization, images, notability, sources).
  3. Supporters adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied.
  4. The article is placed on the Good article list and categorized as such.
  5. Also, if, at least a week after the article's nomination, that article has 3 Bureau supports and no objections (or the objections have been stricken or overridden), it will be added to the queue, and will be officially known as a "Good article."

How to vote:

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterwards, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination.
  3. Please note that in order for your vote to count, you must have at least 50 mainspace edits.
    1. If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved.
  4. As stated above, any objections will be looked upon by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to please the objectors. Do not strike other users' objections; it is up to the objector to review the changes and strike if they are satisfied.
  5. Once the article has at least three supporting Bureau votes and no outstanding objections after at least a week, the article will be added to the queue and be officially known as a "Good article." Non-Bureau members are also encouraged to review articles and participate in the process.

Also remember to add {{NomG}} at the top of the article you are nominating.
