A featured topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles).

A good topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles) with a less stringent quality threshold than a featured topic.

This page is for the nomination of potential featured and good topics. See the featured and good topic criteria for criteria on both types of topic. If you would like to ask any questions about your topic and the featured/good topic process before submitting it, visit Wikipedia talk:Featured and good topic candidates.

Before nominating a topic, nominators may wish to receive feedback by listing it at Featured and good topic questions. Nominators must be sufficiently familiar with the subject matter and sources to deal with objections during the FTC/GTC process. If you nominate something you have worked on, note it as a self-nomination. Nominators who are not significant contributors to the articles of the topic should consult regular editors of the articles prior to nomination. Nominators are expected to respond positively to constructive criticism and to make an effort to address objections promptly.

The featured and good topics delegates Aza24, MaranoFan and Gog the Mild determine the timing of the process for each nomination. For a nomination to be promoted to FT or GT status, consensus must be reached for a group to be promoted to featured or good topic status. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates topic and archived.

To contact the FTC director and delegates, please leave a message on the FTC talk page, or use the {{@FTC}} notification template elsewhere.

Nomination procedure[edit]

To create a new nomination use the form below (e.g., Wikipedia:Featured and good topic candidates/Saffron/archive1) and click the "Create new nomination" button.

Once the nomination page is created, remember to transclude it in the appropriate section below, to leave nomination templates on the talk pages of the articles nominated for the topic. For detailed instructions on how to nominate topics or add articles to existing topics, see Wikipedia:Featured and good topic candidates/Nomination procedure.


Supporting and objecting[edit]

Please review all the articles of the nominated topic with the featured and good topic criteria in mind before deciding to support or oppose a nomination.

  • To edit nominations in order to comment on them, you must click the "edit" link to the right of the article nomination on which you wish to comment (not the overall page's "edit this page" link).
  • If you approve of a nomination, write '''Support''' followed by your reasons. Supports that clearly evaluate the criteria will be weighted more than those that do not.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write '''Oppose''' or '''Object''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a specific rationale that can be addressed. If nothing can be done in principle to fix the source of the objection, the objection may be ignored.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

For a topic to be promoted to featured or good topic status, consensus must be reached that it meets the criteria. The FGTC delegates are usually the ones to assess this consensus and close FGTC discussions. If there is a consensus to promote, the promote instructions are located here. If enough time passes without objections being resolved (at least one week), nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. Nominations will stay here for ten days if there is unanimous consent, or longer if warranted by debate.

Featured topic nominations[edit]

Dwarf planets[edit]

A dwarf planet is a small planetary-mass object that is in direct orbit around the Sun, massive enough to be gravitationally rounded, but insufficient to achieve orbital dominance like the eight classical planets of the Solar System. The prototypical dwarf planet is Pluto, which was regarded as a planet before the "dwarf" concept was adopted in 2006.

Demoted in 2020 once Ceres lost its Featured status, that article getting its star back, along with how all the nine that appear atop the Dwarf planet article are Good or better, should be enough for this topic to be restored. --igordebraga 05:25, 23 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Good topic nominations[edit]

Black Mirror (1st supplementary nomination)[edit]

This topic is already featured. It is being re-nominated to add additional items. See Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/Black Mirror for discussions of the topic's previous nominations. The additional items are:

  1. Joan Is Awful
  2. Loch Henry
  3. Beyond the Sea (Black Mirror)
  4. Mazey Day (Black Mirror)
  5. Demon 79

Spy-cicle and 2pou have already been involved in directly adding the series 6 episodes to the template, but I figured this should go through the official supplementary process. Since the topic's promotion in 2021, five new episodes have been released, all of which are now GA. The main article, Black Mirror, as well as List of Black Mirror episodes and other articles have been updated as appropriate with information about series 6.

Thanks to the new GA reviewers, OlifanofmrTennant, BennyOnTheLoose, Premeditated Chaos and Sammi Brie. — Bilorv (talk) 21:38, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adelophthalmidae (1st supplementary nomination)[edit]

This topic is already featured. It is being re-nominated to add additional items. See Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/Adelophthalmidae for discussions of the topic's previous nominations. The additional items are:

  1. Pruemopterus

I've just found out there is a procedure for adding new articles to already existing good topics. Pruemopterus was promoted earlier this day, so I am nominating it for its addition. Super Dromaeosaurus (talk) 20:19, 28 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Comment: I support the addition of this article to the group, but shouldn't Archopterus also be included? It was only created on January 31, so it's not been around for a long time, but I wanted to bring it up to make sure this topic ends up completed (or delisted eventually, hopefully not). Hey man im josh (talk) 21:09, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Anybody that wishes to can nominate this GT for delisting. I am completely burnout on this topic area and will not try to get Archopterus to GA status. I just wanted to follow the bureaucratic process and include Pruemopterus. Also a very slim hope that maybe someone could see this and decide to work on Archopterus to prevent a delisting which is unlikely. If this leads to the inevitable delisting of this GT to take place, so be it. Most of these were promoted back in 2018. Super Ψ Dro 21:36, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Should Unionopterus be added to this as well? It's already GA. User:Super Dromaeosaurus, it seems [1] would be the only authoritative source available on Archopterus? Since it's such a new discovery I'm not sure how that could possibly become GA from a single publication, but I'd think it should qualify for criterion 3c for just a peer review. I'd hate to see this delisted over that so I'd be happy to help if you have ideas though I've never edited in the fossil space! Reywas92Talk 22:32, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I had asked about Unionopterus on the original nomination of the whole GT [2]. One user said we probably should wait for new studies to bring certainty to know if the genus is a certain member of Adelophthalmidae. Such a study could take decades or more to come. I am in favor of including it though, as the genus is mostly discussed in the context of its relationship with Adelophthalmidae and its morphology would indicate it was indeed a member of it. I'd like the opinion of more users on this topic.
Yes, Archopterus could perfectly become a GA even though there's only one main source to draw information from. Pruemopterus is one such case, discovered recently in 2020. The reviewer also had this doubt and asked about it and it was fine [3]. Appreciate the help offer, it encourages me. A possibility could be to start a joint draft and write the article from stratch. I could coordinate it and give you some indications so that you can help despite being unexperienced. All eurypterid articles (so that you understand, if dogs and wolfs are canine mammals, Pruemopterus, Archopterus etc are eurypterid arthropods) follow a four-section model and I can tell Archopterus's article would end up similar to Pruemopterus's meaning it can be used as a model (as you can see, the article and all its sections are short). It is actually easier than it looks like. I wouldn't be willing to participate on this draft despite your generous offer if it is only the two of us because of reasons I realized were sounding very lazy and selfish as I tried to elaborate on them. I am willing though to do this is we are four, perhaps three. Super Ψ Dro 23:18, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Better Call Saul (season 6)[edit]

The sixth and final season of the AMC television series Better Call Saul premiered on April 18, 2022, in the United States, and concluded on August 15. Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, it serves as a spin-off of Breaking Bad, taking place both before and after the events of the series. It consisted of 13 episodes and was broadcast in the U.S. on AMC, and its streaming service AMC+, with Netflix releasing each episode the next day to certain international markets. It was split into two parts consisting of various storylines; the first consisting of the first seven episodes and concluding by May 23, before resuming with the second half of the six final episodes on July 11. Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, Tony Dalton, and Giancarlo Esposito all reprise their roles from previous seasons. The first nine episodes depicts Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk)'s increasing involvement with the illicit activities of meth cooks Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), and his transition into the eponymous persona "Saul Goodman" as he and his wife Kim Wexler (Seehorn) execute their plan to resolve the Sandpiper case by ruining Howard Hamlin's career (Fabian). Simultaneously, it also depicts Lalo Salamanca's (Dalton) attempts to disrupt Gus Fring's (Esposito) operations and expose his disloyalty to the drug cartel. The final three episodes take place after the events of Breaking Bad, showcasing Jimmy living in Omaha, Nebraska under the alias of "Gene Takavic", hiding from the authorities after Walter's demise. It received critical acclaim among critics, being praised for the cast performances, writing, visuals, emotional weight, and connections to Breaking Bad.

I believe that topic meets all the criteria for numerous reasons. First, all the articles have been promoted to the GA status and the relation is clearly enough, considering that the articles are both the master Season 6 article for Better Call Saul and also encompassing each episode in the season. The episode articles have a consistent layout and the overall topic contains the entire scope of its intended subject, the sixth season of BCS. I also believe that Season 6 is among the best BCS content on Wikipedia, as the entire production process was covered extensively due to its popularity and success among audiences. --Dcdiehardfan (talk) 04:02, 25 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Support (I'm listed as a contributor but just reviewed some of these for GA). The articles meet the GA criteria and form a complete topic with a main article. They should serve as model articles for those who write episode articles. Excellent work! — Bilorv (talk) 12:06, 28 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2004–05 Arsenal F.C. season[edit]

The 2004–05 season was Arsenal Football Club's 13th season in the Premier League and their 79th consecutive season in the top flight of English football. The club ended the campaign as FA Cup winners, but failed to retain their Premier League title as they finished second to Chelsea. In the UEFA Champions League, Arsenal made an exit in the knockout stages to Bayern Munich.

Contributor(s): Lemonade51, PeeJay

I am nominating this topic because I believe these articles now collectively constitute a complete topic. The topic was nominated in January 2019, but was not listed because the articles overlapped with another topic. However, this topic has since been delisted due to its incompleteness; it is also my opinion that that the rivalry topic should not have existed. Nonetheless, I think this should be a straightforward addition. See also: 1991–92 season & 2002–03 season --Idiosincrático (talk) 07:09, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Asteroid belt[edit]

The asteroid belt is a torus-shaped region in the Solar System, centered on the Sun and roughly spanning the space between the orbits of the planets Jupiter and Mars. It contains a great many solid, irregularly shaped bodies called asteroids or minor planets. The identified objects are of many sizes, but much smaller than planets, and, on average, are about one million kilometers (or six hundred thousand miles) apart. The asteroid belt is the smallest and innermost known circumstellar disc in the Solar System. About 60% of the main belt mass is contained in the four largest asteroids: Ceres, Vesta, Pallas, and Hygiea. The total mass of the asteroid belt is estimated to be 3% that of the Moon.

Demoted in 2020 once Ceres lost FA status, the article has since gotten its star back, so there are no impediments for a restoration. --igordebraga 17:11, 24 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Emirates Cup[edit]

The Emirates Cup is an annual pre-season friendly association football competition hosted by Arsenal F.C. at their home stadium, the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal won the first edition in 2007, which featured Paris Saint-Germain, Valencia and Inter Milan; the two-day tournament brought in 110,000 spectators over the four matches. The tournament has been frequently cancelled and since 2019, the format has moved to a single exhibition friendly match between Arsenal and another team.

I am nominating this these articles as I believe together they constitute a complete good topic. This former good topic was delisted in 2020 as the 2019 edition had not reached recognised status in time. However, this article has recently been redirected to the lead article per this discussion, thus restoring the topic. It was also noted here that single-match editions (which has been the format since 2019) were not noteworthy enough to constitute individual articles. --Idiosincrático (talk) 02:59, 21 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@AirshipJungleman29: I too was concerned about this. When the list originally passed as an FL, it was more "list-like" and no concerns were brought up then, nor in the previous GT nom. However, I agree with you and I think it should have an article rating. I'd be happy to nominate it for GA status if you'd be willing to review it? Just to help streamline both the GA and GT noms. It's a pretty straightforward article and should be a quick nomination as the article has already passed an FL nomination. I'll wait for your response before doing so :) Idiosincrático (talk) 07:35, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Topic removal candidates[edit]

Wanderers F.C.[edit]

The list of FA Cup-winning players is an obvious addition to this topic; without the inclusion of this list, the topic fails criteria 1d and 1e and the topic should be delisted. Idiosincrático (talk) 02:02, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd completely forgotten I had even created that. Should be possible to get it to FL status - I will start work right away! -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 08:26, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The article is now at FLC -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 21:21, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lists of UEFA club competition winning clubs[edit]

The UEFA Europa Conference League is a relatively new competition and did not exist at the time of the 2008 FT nomination. Additionally, the Intercontinental Cup list did not exist at the time of the nomination either, it should be included as it was jointly administered by both UEFA and CONMEBOL, and the competition is included in the lead article tallies. Without these lists reaching recognised status, this topic fails criteria 1d and 1e, thus it should be delisted. The UEFA Women's Champions League list is not included as the lead article only outlines men's competitions. Idiosincrático (talk) 01:13, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Overview of Katy Perry[edit]

The live performances constitute a gap when it comes to criteria 1d and 1e, as it is not an FL and is also not "within the scope of a non-lead article that is included in the topic".--NØ 07:02, 10 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
