This page is for the nomination of Good articles. This is not a way to showcase the articles of your favorite characters, creatures, or the like. For a list of Good articles, see Category:TESWiki Good Articles.

A Good article is an article which is a candidate for becoming a Featured Article but has not yet become one. Prior to the Consensus Thread decision on October 20th, 2018, The Circle reviewed and voted on all nominations. Since then, the old system has been put back in place, allowing for regular users to vote as well after a discussion, if needed.

An article must…

  1. …contain all appropriate infoboxes, navigation templates, and categories.
  2. …be well-written and detailed.
  3. …be unbiased, with a neutral point of view.
  4. …be sourced with all available sources and appearances.
  5. …follow the Manual of Style, Layout Guide, and all other policies on TESWiki.
  6. …following the review process, be stable, i.e. it does not change significantly from day to day and is not the subject of ongoing edit wars. This does not apply to vandalism and protection or semi-protection as a result of vandalism.
  7. …not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags (i.e. more sources, expand, etc).
  8. …have a proper lead that gives a good summary of the topic and can be used for the front page featured box.
  9. …No redlinks.
  10. …have significant information from all sources and appearances, especially a biography for character articles.
  11. …not have been previously featured on the Main Page. Otherwise, it can only be restored to featured status.
  12. …be completely referenced for all available material and sources. See TES:Sourcing for more information.
  13. …have all quotes and images sourced.
  14. …provide at least one quote on the article. A leading quote at the beginning of the article will be required only if there is quotable dialogue by or about the subject. Although quotes may be placed in the body of the article, a maximum of one quote is allowed at the beginning of each section.
  15. …include a "Personality" section on all character articles.
  16. …character articles should include all relevant dialogue.
  17. …include a "powers and abilities" section on all relevant character articles, especially for God characters where said powers and/or abilities are stipulated.
  18. …include a reasonable number of images of sufficient quality to illustrate the article, if said images are available.
  19. …contain at least one link to the article subject in another language.
  20. …contain a lead and must be, counting the introduction, at least 1000 words long (not including captions, quotes, headers, etc.)
  21. Text and images in the article must not violate any current policy of the wiki or any policy that was in place at the time of the good article nomination. If policy changes, the article must be re-reviewed to ensure it matches the Good Article criteria.

How to nominate:

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of good status, putting it at the bottom of the list below. Nominated articles must meet all seventeen requirements stated above.
  2. Add {{GAnom}} at the top of the article you are nominating.
  3. 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).
  4. Supporters adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied.
  5. Be sure to place sign in the "Nominated by" line when the nomination is posted for voting.

Oppose

  • Voting-oppose.svg Oppose – I believe that this page is great but, i believe that there is a little problem with this page. The number of dupps. links in the page is pretty amazing. There's lot of them. Also, you may want to add:the gadget of show dupps links. I think it would help you.Emperor Jarjarkine Aldmeri Dominion.png Senate Hall 02:35, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Neutral

  • Voting-neutral.svg Neutral – I've not played ESO, so I don't feel I have the requisite understanding to determine if the page is a good reflection or not. DaBarkspawn (talk) 15:58, August 30, 2020 (UTC)

Oppose

  • Voting-oppose.svg Oppose – I know it is better to discuss, but there are some glaring issues that cause me to vote immediately. I personally don't think this meets a number of the standards for a decent article, much less a good one. There are pieces of a good article here; for instance, some portions are descriptive enough to be good, and the lead appears to be decent; however, that's about all that is good besides having no redlinks and an interwiki link. The description itself seems to become inconsistant at the end; I assume that there is combat against the enemies, yet it is barely described and it feels like it is rushed-through. Overall, the size is just under the cusp of being acceptable, although since more can be added and because it is technically less than 1000 words (around 800 at the moment), I would say it fails this. The page in general is lacking all relevant dialogue, and surely would benefit from a number of images. The journal is missing as well, which for a quest page is pretty important. Overall, this is a nice start, but needs heavy improvement to be considered a Good Article. Ottoman Hold Message Me My Action 05:37:36 August 12, 2020
  • Voting-oppose.svg Oppose – It feels like it isn't quite there yet. This page describes a lot about what happens, but it really needs dialogue and some images to feel like a proper walkthrough. Poisoned apples (talk) 06:27, August 30, 2020 (UTC)
  • Voting-oppose.svg Oppose – This is nice for an ESO page, but it doesn't have any dialogue or other images beyond the infobox image. It also doesn't have a quest journal. —Atvelonis (talk) 18:36, August 30, 2020 (UTC)
  • Voting-oppose.svg Oppose – The article is not interesting enough beyond just an Online quest article. It does not engage the reader. Many Skyrim quest articles are better. Burning Snow 03:28, September 30, 2020 (UTC)
