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 A forum will be used to nominate articles that have fallen out-of-date.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.

  2. ECvote Although I noticed that the use of an accent on "creche" is inconsistent. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 00:37, December 8, 2014 (UTC)


  • Context for the Yuuzhan Vong War. Ayrehead02 (talk) 15:37, November 22, 2014 (UTC)
    • Added.
  • A bit nit-picky but is the last sentence worded correctly? Shouldn't it be something like "leading Yim to realize that it was her own personality that had been imparted onto Veila during the shaping". The she herself bit just sounds slightly odd. Ayrehead02 (talk) 15:37, November 22, 2014 (UTC)
    • Tweaked, as it was reading weird. Thanks for the review. 501st dogma(talk) 02:03, November 23, 2014 (UTC)


Galactic gourmet

  • Nominated by: ProfessorTofty (talk) 11:48, November 8, 2014 (UTC)
  • Nomination comments: I believe this one is good. Everything is fully explained, everything is linked up, behind the scenes, quote and picture included. Only question is whether "Infinities" should be included in "Eras," this was recently added to another article from the series and I've been trying to get a clarification.

  1. ECvote Note I've moved the quote from the History to the top of the page. This is because you only have one quote. 501st dogma(talk) 21:52, December 7, 2014 (UTC)


  • There needs to be a description section. This would state that the title was a culinary title and so forth.
  • Intro needs mention of Gammy directly, and Gammorean needs to be linked to in intro. Also, the tidbit about Gammoreans not being able to cook should be added to body, as it is currently intro exclusive. 501st dogma(talk) 01:18, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
    • Thank you for reviewing the article! Those things are now done. ProfessorTofty (talk) 07:57, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
  • " they were generally porcine individuals..." They were generally porcine? I'm pretty sure that they were always porcine. Also, that sentence could use some reworking.
  • " It is unknown which institution issued this title, nor what standards were required in order to be awarded it." No need for this - if there isn't any info, just leave it out. If you want to keep it, add it to the BtS.
  • "This was perhaps of rather little surprise, as Gamorreans were generally known as renowned warriors, not chefs." I'd rather if this was removed, and a tidbit about the Gammoreans being warriors and not cooks added in the first sentence, when you mention that Gammy is a Gamorrean. This will mean we can get rid of the "little surprise" part, which is not very-encyclopedic.
    • Now you have "Gammy, a Gamorrean, a species known for being renowned warriors rather than chefs,..." It would be best if you could combine the Gamorrean and the info about them so that there is no comma between them. Just saying "Gammy, a member of the Gamorean species that did so and so, earned...." would do it. With the commas the way they are, its awkward. 501st dogma(talk) 19:11, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
      • Alright. Took care of that. Looking okay on that part now? ProfessorTofty (talk) 19:19, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • The article is currently at 253 words, but revisions will probably take it under. 501st dogma(talk) 15:11, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
    • Alright, those things are done along with a bit of other minor rewording. As you noted, with those changes, the article is back within the word limit. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:57, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
Master of the universe

Hey Professor, good to see you. A couple things here:

  • Remember that things are linked once in the infobox, once in the intro, and once in the body. Currently "chef" goes unlinked in the body. Come to think of it, you could probably fit in "the galaxy" as well.
  • Please find a way to include the release date for Return of the Padawan.
  • Also, I believe Padawan is pluralized with an -S. This is missing in the body.
  • Other than that, it was a good read. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 00:33, December 8, 2014 (UTC)


  1. Fellow EC: Wookieepedia is not a source, so should the Wookieepedia:Interview/Jeffrey Brown be only listed in the references? Also, I thought we didn't usually write sentences like "the only known individual"? Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 00:33, December 8, 2014 (UTC)
    • As for the former, I believe its correct in this case as the interview is not accessible elsewhere. As for the later, I was wondering about that as well, and I do agree that it should probably be cut out, as there is no definite proof that Gammy was the only known gourmet. 501st dogma(talk) 00:54, December 8, 2014 (UTC)
      • All objections handled, I believe, except for the source thing. I would tend to agree that it should be a source since it's only here, but I'll let you guys decide that one. Oh, and one other thing, "Padawan" is pluralized as "Padawan" in the book. Should it be kept as "Padawans" on the article, or listed as "Padawan" with "[sic]", and a reference?

  • The "Behind the scenes" section is currently unsourced in its entirety. Please be sure to source it. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:36, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
    • Fixed. - AV-6R7User talk:AV-6R7 05:41, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
      • Not quite yet. The first sentence is still unsourced. Additionally, I'm not sure of the relevance of the second sentence. You definitely need a reference to the fact that this was in Legends, so that's good, but I'm not sure why talking about the planet would be needed. A better bit of information would be to say that Holowan Laboratories was first introduced in Legends, say which Legends story it was first introduced in, provide a source for its first appearance in Legends (which is the same source you already have, so that's good), and then say which canon source it was re-canonized in (that being the Rebels Visual Guide). - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:57, December 15, 2014 (UTC)


  • Not here to vote but the second sentence of the BTS has a typo. Also, the sentence is kinda knarly to start with. Might want to rephrase. Fe Nite (talk) 14:23, December 12, 2014 (UTC)
