FANDOM


Nominations for featured articles is for nominating the best articles on the entire site. The articles are expected to be complete, and examine the point thoroughly. It is expected that spelling, citations, and standard style problems have already been fixed, and a picture never hurts if it is available.

At current, the Memory Beta is still building its database from the ground up, so there probably won't be many fully complete articles in the near future. We're also still building on our list of members, so the voting process may be slow if it is ever gotten around to, please be patient with us during these times.

Any user may nominate an article for featured status, and you may nominate an article contributed to solely by you, how ever you must be a signed up member. IP users are not permitted to nominate, nor vote in this process. Please do not forget to sign your nominations, so we can confirm this.

This is the discussion and voting page for featured article nominations. After an article has entered discussion, {{featuredcandidate}} should be placed on the article. Once an article is approved, change the template to {{Featured}}.

How to nominate:

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of featured status, putting it at the bottom of the list below; see criteria above.
  2. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is 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 featured article list and added to the front page queue.
  5. Also, if, at least two weeks after the article's nomination, that article has 3 supports and no objections, it will be added to the queue, and will be officially known as a "featured 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.
    1. If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved.
  3. As stated above, any objections will be reviewed by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to satisfy the objectors.
  4. Once all objectors' complaints have been solved (or the article has 2 supports and no objections after at least a week), the article will be added to the queue and be officially known as a "featured article".

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

Each month the next article in the queue will be highlighted on the Main Page as featured, and removed from the list of nominations. The beginning of the article then appears on the Main Page via the {{featured}} template. Nominees that are inactive for two months will be eliminated from the nominations list.

I'm surprised there aren't more references to this character, so would anticipate there could be something missing. However, as far as my knowledge goes this is a pretty complete article. --8of5 14:28, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
Looks good to me unless there is a reference that got missed entirely.--Long Live the United Earth 02:37, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
I would support the nomination for a featured article, but I feel some work needs to be done as the Myriad Universes gives a different version of events with a different Klingon becoming Baris. --The Doctor 12:00, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
My copies of the Myriad Universes novels are currently buried, so I can't add the additional information. If someone else is capable of adding it that would be nice. :) But yes, I agree that until that information is added we should hold off.--Long Live the United Earth 05:14, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
  • I think the article will be appropriate and attractive for the main page with the addition of even a short, spoiler-free summary to illustrate the theme of the source, and a format cleanup. The attention gained on the main page featured article section will probably lead new users to complete sections. -- Captain MKB 03:41, February 4, 2017 (UTC)
