article nominations

This page is for the nomination of "comprehensive articles." For a list of "comprehensive articles," see Category:Wookieepedia comprehensive articles.

What is a "comprehensive article?"

A "comprehensive article" is an article that contains all information regarding the topic. Often, "comprehensive articles" cannot reach Featured or Good Article status due to their limited content. This process is intended to recognize articles that contain all relevant canon information, yet are still under the 250 word limit required for a Good Article. The purpose of this is twofold—firstly, to help users distinguish what is a stub, and what is merely a short article with no further relevant material to be added, and, more importantly, to highlight for the reader when they are reading something that has been judged definitely "comprehensive"—that is, a guarantee to the reader that whatever they are reading contains the sum total of all available content on that topic.

Nominations and promotions of the Comprehensive article process are overseen by a collective of users known as the "EduCorps," which is made up of the Inquisitorius, the AgriCorps, and various other experienced users who are considered qualified to adequately judge the nominated material.

Lucasfilm Ltd. and its many licensees continue to expand the Star Wars universe. Since new information might become available, it may be necessary to revoke a "comprehensive article's" status. A forum will be used to nominate articles that have fallen out-of-date. Members of the EduCorps will then post a warning template on that page, and a grace period of at least one week will be instituted in which the article can be improved. If there is a significant amount of new information, it is likely that once updated, the article will become eligible for Good article status, and thereby ineligible for Comprehensive article status.


An article must…

  1. …be well-written and detailed.
  2. …be unbiased, non-point of view.
  3. …be sourced with all available sources and appearances.
  4. …follow the Manual of Style, Layout Guide, and all other policies on Wookieepedia. This is, of course, within reason. If a topic only has a very limited degree of content that cannot be divided up into the relevant article sections, it is not required that it follow the Layout Guide precisely. This is to be judged on a case-by-case basis.
  5. …following the review process, be stable, i.e., 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.
  6. …not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags (i.e. more sources, expand, etc).
  7. …have no redlinks.
  8. …have all relevant canon information presented.
  9. …be completely referenced for all available material and sources. See Wookieepedia:Sourcing for more information.
  10. …have all quotes and images sourced.
  11. …provide at least one relevant quote on the article if available.
  12. …include a "Behind the scenes" section for in-universe articles.
  13. …counting the introduction, the article body, and "Behind the scenes" material, must not exceed 250 words in length (not including captions, quotes, or headers, etc). Any articles exceeding the limit should be taken to the Good article nominations page for consideration.
  14. …if the nominated article reaches 200 words or greater, the nominator must either provide an intro or draft an intro and provide a link to the revision in the nomination, showing that the intro does not elevate the article over 250 words. Exceptions can be made for articles wherein the majority of the text is in the "Behind the scenes" section.
  15. …if an article approaches the 250-word length for Good article nominations, it should not deliberately shortened in order to avoid meeting that word limit.

How to nominate:

  1. First, find an article you find is worthy of comprehensive status. Nominated articles must meet all seventeen requirements stated above.
  2. Add {{CAnom}} at the top of the article you are nominating and save the page. NOTE: If the article you are nominating has been nominated for CA one or more times previously, you will need to specify a new subpage name as a parameter in the template (e.g. {{CAnom|Lorum ipsum (second nomination)}}).
  3. Open the redlink (in a new tab or window, if possible) and fill out the form according to the instructions provided.
  4. Copy the code provided to the bottom of this page.
  5. Purge the article to update the template.
  6. 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 in accordance with the established rules.
  7. Nominators and supporters will adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied. Objectors may also make alterations—if there is any reason for contention on a given point, it should be settled in a civil manner in the nomination field itself.
  8. Users may not vote on their own articles.
  9. Each user shall be limited to four active Comprehensive article nominations at any given time. Any additional nominations beyond four will be subject to immediate removal.

How to vote:

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterward, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination.
    • If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved.
  3. As stated above, any objections will be looked upon by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to please the objectors. Do not strike other users' objections; it is up to the objector to review the changes and strike if they are satisfied.
  4. There are several ways in which an article can receive the required number of votes. Within a 48-hour period of nomination, only EduCorps votes will count towards the total, although anyone may choose to vote in that window. If four members of the EduCorps support a nomination in that window [0 to 48 hours post-nomination], and there are no outstanding objections, the article can be considered a "Comprehensive article" and be tagged with the {{Eras|comp}} template 48 hours after the initial nomination. The talk page will also be tagged with the {{CA}} template. When the 48 hours are up, any user's votes will contribute towards the total. If two EduCorps member has voted for an article after a week, three regular votes will be required. After a week, an article can also pass with just three EduCorps votes.
  5. Once a nomination is successful, it will be placed on the Comprehensive article list. Note: Only members of the EduCorps, which includes the members of the AgriCorps and Inquisitorius, are allowed to archive comprehensive article nominations.

All nominations will be considered idle and are subject to instantaneous removal by EduCorps members if objections are not addressed, or at least not answered, after a period of 1 week.

  • Khypes' article states that the destruction of the fleet astonished both the Sith Empire and Republic. Worth mentioning here? Supreme Emperor (talk) 02:42, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

  • From what I can see of the codex entry, there is nothing to say how the escorts were destroyed.
    • Bah, fixed.
  • The codex entry does not mention that the Republic negotiated with the Voss.
    • Correct.
  • The entry gives a lot of information about how the Empire and Republic did not know what happened. Please include this information.
    • Well then, I was clearly half-asleep when I did this for Supreme above, because.... wow. Done.
  • Could you link to battlecruiser in some way in the main article?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 15:17, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • The Imperial Attack on Voss has a quote that seems to indicate that the Voss destroyed the ship. I'm not sure about all of the details though. If nothing can be confirmed, you could at least mention that the Force-sensitivity like you do in the Khypes article.
  • The Khypes article gives the rank of general, while this article says admiral. Please correct this.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 04:36, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
