Removing Good and Featured Topics in Wikipedia

If you feel a topic on Wikipedia:Featured topics or a topic on Wikipedia:Good topics should no longer be there, then this is the place to nominate it for demotion. Only topics that do not adhere to the good or featured topic criteria should be listed. Objections raised must be actionable.

Do not nominate topics that have recently been promoted (such complaints should have been brought up during the candidacy period on Wikipedia:Featured and good topic candidates), or topics that have recently survived a removal attempt—such nominations are likely to be removed summarily.

Once a topic has been nominated on this page for ten days, the discussion will be assessed for consensus by one of the FGTC coordinators, who will close the discussion. If there is consensus to remove, it will be removed from the list of featured topic, and added to the list of former featured topics. All discussions will be logged at Wikipedia:Featured topic removal candidates/archive. The removal instructions are located here.

Nomination procedure

  1. Place {{FTRCmain|ExampleTopicName|X}} or {{GTRCmain|ExampleTopicName|X}} (as appropriate) on the talk page of the main article of the topic, where X is the desired archive number.
  2. From there, click on the "add a comment" link.
  3. Add ===ExampleTopicName=== and the topic's box copied from Wikipedia:Featured topics/ExampleTopicName.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the topic. Note which of the featured topic criteria that the topic fails to meet.
  5. Place {{Wikipedia:Featured topic removal candidates/ExampleTopicName/archiveX}} (again, where X is the desired archive number) at the top of the list of nominees on this page by first copying the above, clicking "edit" on the top of the page, and then pasting, making sure to add the name of the nominated article.

Supporting and objecting[edit]

Please read all the articles of the nominated topic fully 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 to remove, write '''Delist''' followed by your reasons.
  • If you oppose of a nomination to remove, write '''Keep''' followed by the reason for your objection. Each objection must provide a justification why the topic does not violate the listed criteria.
  • If you want to delay the nomination while another nomination takes place, such as adding new items to the topic or nominating member articles for Good Article status, write '''HOLD''' with a link to the relevant nomination and this nomination will not be closed until after the other one.
  • To withdraw a support or objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

Consensus must be reached for a topic to be removed from featured status. If enough time passes without objections being resolved, nominations will be removed from the candidates list and archived. As a general guide, new topics will remain on here for at least 10 days to allow for comment, and must have at least 4 remove votes (although consensus and lack of major objections are also important) for removal.

Topics nominated for removal[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]

  • Remove: per nom. Idiosincrático (talk) 10:37, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delist: per nom. Live performances has been tagged with "This article needs additional citations for verification" since January 2019 so I guess no real effort has been made to bring it up to FL standards since then. BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 00:08, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delist per nom. -- ZooBlazer 07:42, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
