Now that we are officially implementing the Canon/Legends tab system to articles, we need to determine how we will handle status articles (Featured, Good, and Comprehensive articles). At the most recent Inq, AC, and EC meetings from this past weekend and the weekend before, all members present to discuss the matter were in unanimous approval of treating each tab of a single article as separate status articles. So, for example, Wampa and Wampa/Canon will be treated separately. What happens to one tab will not affect the other, and each tab will undergo separate status reviews by the reviewing panels (Inq, AC, EC). So that's what I'm proposing here. The specifics are very basic and are as follows:
Canon and Legends tabs of a single article will be treated as separate status articles.
Each tab will be nominated for status as usual on the FAN, GAN, or CAN page. This means that:
A) Both tab versions will be nominated for status together on the same page rather than making separate nomination pages for Canon articles (Just to clarify in case this is confusing, by "together" I meant that Canon and Legends tabs will be nominated on a single page. We won't have separate nomination pages for separate tabs. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 00:11, May 20, 2014 (UTC) )
B) Canon and Legends articles will therefore be governed by the same set of nomination rules found on the FAN, GAN, and CAN pages. This means that most Canon articles probably won't be eligible for FAN immediately, since they won't be able to reach 1000 words in length. I don't anticipate needing to revise these requirements for Canon articles. If someone wants to see changes made here for some reason, I ask that you please reserve that for a separate discussion thread.
The three community-approved reviewing panels (Inq, AC, and EC) will review both Canon and Legends articles as they always have both on the nomination pages and at meetings
Status article nomination milestones will be recorded on each tab's respective talk page. For example, when Wampa undergoes status review, its milestones will be recorded on Talk:Wampa. When Wampa/Canon undergoes status review, its milestones will be recorded on Talk:Wampa/Canon.
I'm a little confused. Does an article have to both tabs nominated at the same time? Fe Nite (talk) 23:45, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
Does an article need to have both tabs nominated at the same time? No. That's why this proposal is to treat them separately. Both tab versions, when they're nominated, will be nominated on the same FAN page. So it's conceivable you might have, for example, Luke Skywalker and Luke Skywalker/Canon nominated at the same time.

I think what you're trying to say is there will not be separate nomination pages for Legends and Canon articles. All nominations (whether for a Legends article or a Canon article) go to the same respective (FAN, GAN, or CAN) nominations page. Right? - Esjs(Talk) 05:07, May 20, 2014 (UTC)
That's correct. Something like "FAN/Canon" and "FAN/Legends" would just be nonsensical. CC7567(talk) 05:09, May 20, 2014 (UTC)
Will the "no redlinks" rule be extended -- i.e. will you require that subjects appearing in canon and Legends sources have both articles existing and properly linked, even if only one is being nominated? (Maybe the Legends one would be an FAN while the shorter canon one is a CAN.)—Silly Dan(talk) 02:57, May 22, 2014 (UTC)
