List of UAAP Final Four results should be sent to FLRC. (talk) 01:34, 2 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Nomination limit requirement[edit]

@WP:FLC director and delegates: – I was just curious why don't we have a limit requirement for number of nominations at any given time? I see that Wretchskull has nominated 5 lists for removal—Darwin Medal, Royal Medal, Gabor Medal, Rumford Medal, and Sylvester Medal—all of which are Medals of the Royal Society. These nominations are very correctly made; the lists indeed are problematic. But, the latter four nominations were made within span of 24 hours. I had expressed my interest in fixing up the issues of Darwin Medal, and have made quite a few changes. I do intend to fix these other lists as well, but am not sure if I would be able to do so within a reasonable period of time, given that they all are nominated together.

WP:FAR has a limit for nominations of each user by week. Should be have a similar approach? The Featured list removal candidates page is much less active than that WP:FAR. I propose the following requirement:

  • Nominator and other relevant Wiki Projects should be notified at-least one week before the nomination is made,
  • No more than one nomination per editor per week, and
  • No more than three nominations here by the same user at any given times, except if permission taken from the FLC director or a FLC delegate.

This is just a rough draft, feel free to comment/suggest further requirements. Thanks!

Potential list that doesn't meet criteria[edit]

I randomly came across List of Texas Tech Red Raiders head football coaches, and noticed that it was a Featured List article. I don't have any pertinent experience with Featured Lists, but just from an intuitive level, it doesn't seem to be anywhere near what I would expect in terms of quality compared to other lists I've read. Would someone with more experience be able to take a look? Yitz (talk) 16:35, 15 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

That list was promoted 12 year ago. Yes, it has uncited text in the lead and (maybe) in the table as well. But apart that, there aren't much issues. The references at a glace look fine. The initial nominator has left Wikipedia. Would you or anyone else like to fix these issues. It is salvageable, but needs work. – Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 16:45, 15 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I think List of Golden Martín Fierro Award winners needs looking at as a potential candidate for delisting.
