FANDOM


Featured articles are examples of the best content on The Lion King Wiki.

If an article has been featured on the Main Page, it will have a featured article template at the top of the page. In addition, a short synopsis of the article will appear on the Main Page for a time.

The rest of this document covers what type of articles should be considered, the criteria they should be judged by, and the nomination/promotion/rejection procedure, as well as lists of current and past featured articles.

Articles

In order to be a featured article, a page must adhere to the following criteria:

  • It must be of a reasonable length.
  • It must have good grammar and spelling.
  • It must feature quotes or images, where appropriate.
  • It must have sufficient references.

Users

In order to nominate a featured article, a user must adhere to the following criteria:

  • The user must have been a member of the wiki for at least three months.
  • The user must have made at least 100 constructive edits (this does not include blogs, talk pages, etc.).

Nominations

Nominations should be proposed on the official nominations page. Each nomination will have a seven day period from the date of nomination to be either promoted or rejected.

Voting

Voting is limited to registered users only. Users must have made at least 100 constructive edits and been a member of the community for three months.

After seven days, articles must be promoted or rejected depending on their vote total. A clear three votes in favor/against will decide if the nomination succeeds or fails.

After the waiting period is over, each article will be promoted or rejected. For a few days, an archive of the voting shall remain on the nominations page. Afterwards, a record of the nomination must be entered on the former nominations page, regardless of success or failure.

Promoted articles will be featured on the front page and should be tagged with {{Featured article}} at the top of the page.

Rejected nominations/Improvement drive

Rejected nominations can become the subject of a community improvement drive/collaboration project in an effort to get them up to standard.

Re-nomination

Articles cannot be re-nominated unless significant improvement has been made to them.

Duplicate nominations

Any nominations that are already Featured Articles should be removed from the list immediately.
