This page is for the nomination of good articles. This is not a way to showcase the articles of your favorite characters, spaceships, or the like. For a list of Good articles, see Wookieepedia:Good articles.
A Good article is an article that adheres to quality standards, but cannot reach FA status due to its limited content.

READ THIS FIRST!

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.
  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 a proper lead that gives a good summary of the topic if the length of the article supports it. This may not be appropriate on articles with limited content.
  8. …have no more than 1 redlink for articles less than 500 words, no more than 3 redlinks for articles 500 words or more, and no redlinks in the introduction, infobox, or any templates.
  9. …have comprehensive detail with all information covered from all sources and appearances.
  10. …be completely referenced for all available material and sources. See Wookieepedia:Sourcing for more information.
  11. …have all quotes and images sourced.
  12. …provide at least one quote on the article if available. A leading quote at the beginning of the article would be preferred, though not required if no quotes are available. Although quotes may be placed in the body of the article, a maximum of one quote is allowed at the beginning of each section.
  13. …ideally include a "Personality and traits" section on all character articles if information is available.
  14. …ideally include a "Powers and abilities" section for Force-sensitive characters and a "Skills and abilities" section for non–Force-sensitive characters, where said powers and/or abilities are stipulated.
  15. …include a "Behind the scenes" section for in-universe articles.
  16. …include a reasonable number of images of sufficient quality to illustrate the article, if said images are available.
  17. …counting the introduction and "Behind the scenes" material, be at least 250 words long (not including captions, quotes, or headers, etc). Alternatively, a good article cannot exceed 1000 words. Articles that do so should be nominated for Featured status.

How to nominate:

  1. First, find an article you find is worthy of good status. Nominated articles must meet all seventeen requirements stated above.
  2. Add {{GAnom}} at the top of the article you are nominating and save the page. NOTE: If the article you are nominating has been nominated for GA one or more times previously, you will need to specify a new subpage name as a parameter in the template (e.g. {{GAnom|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. Per AgriCorps consensus, nominators are restricted to four nominations on the GAN page at any one time. Once one nomination is removed from the page as either successful or unsuccessful, another can be added.

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. Once a nomination has a total of five votes, with at least three votes coming from AgriCorps or Inquisitorius members—two of which must be AgriCorps votes—after at least a week since it was nominated (beginning the day of its nomination) and no objections (or the objections have been stricken or overridden), the article will be considered a "Good article" and tagged with the {{Eras|good}} template. The talk page will also be tagged with the {{GA}} template. Alternatively, if a nomination receives a total of five AgriCorps/Inquisitorius votes—three of which must be AgriCorps votes—with no outstanding objections before one week has passed, the nomination will be considered successful.
  5. The article is placed on the Good article list.


All nominations will be considered idle and are subject to removal by AgriCorps vote if objections are not addressed after a period of 2 weeks.


Good article nominations

To nominate an article for Good article status, place the {{GAnom}} template on the top of the article and then follow the instructions above. Nominated articles must meet all seventeen requirements stated above. If an article has a total of five votes, with at least three votes coming from AgriCorps or Inquisitorius members—two of which must be an AgriCorps vote—after at least a week since it was nominated (beginning the day of its nomination) and no objections (or the objections have been stricken or overridden), the article will be considered a "Good article" and tagged with the {{Eras|good}} template. The talk page will also be tagged with the {{GA}} template. For complete instructions on archiving nominations please see here.

  • That image still needs to be replaced with one of higher quality. I asked around and confirmed that this is a valid objection.
  • You should have a game mechanics section saying that a Jedi Padawan successfully defeated the droid.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 00:14, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

We'll see about that :P
  • Are the —— 's really necessary? Is that how the quotes are like in the book?
    • I'm afraid so.
      • It's so ugly though >.>
  • In the P&T, you mention a clone army, but before that, there is no specification that the GA's troops are clones save for a pipelink. It would be best if you could state it out right. 501st dogma(talk) 18:00, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

  • Based on the size of the article, I think that the intro could use a short expansion.
    • What would like to see in there? I can see no really needed info that would fit.
  • Why is Sephi a separate affiliation in the infobox? I do not think that species are listed as affiliations, as species are rarely an entirely unified body.
    • The Sephi themselves appear as one united enemy in this comic and are always referred to as such.
  • For the date reference, you need to provide information stating the month and year when the Battle of Geonosis occurred, as the reference currently does not fully support the 21 BBY date.
    • Have a look.
  • You should probably mention his aide in the body.
    • IMHO, that would only generate unnecessary fluff. They only speak one or two sentences before being bombed too dust.
  • Although it will be short, the armor is enough to warrant a separate equipment section.
    • Added.
  • Does the comic provide the full date of when it was released? If not, you will need to source the date differently.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 18:37, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

  • Can any of the standard Lancer-class frigate information (like length) be added to the article?
    • Bah, forgot to add length. Apologies.
  • The introduction makes it sound like the New Republic captured the ship, but the body shows that this cannot be the case.
    • Tweaked it a bit to make it more clear.
  • Could you section the history section?
  • Is the entire last line of the quote in the history section supposed to be unitalicized?
    • Nope - that's due to forgetting a period and some ''.
  • Does the source say who captured the frigate?
    • The only info we have is that is was captured during the Rebellion.
  • "It and the rest of a New Republic task force waited until the captured Yuuzhan Vong vessel Trickster signaled them before jumping to the star system to make it appear as if they were tailing the frigate and were caught unawares by the Yuuzhan Vong fleet there." Just reading this, it is impossible to tell which frigate is being chased. You never call the Yuuzhan Vong ship a frigate until the pipelink, so it sounds like the Whip Hand is being chased.
    • That should alleviate the confusion.
  • "Following the battle, the New Republic's base was shifted to the planet of Kashyyyk" Shifted from where? You never mentioned a base before this.
    • The book doesn't specifically say.
  • Please break up the first sentence of the second paragraph of the history section.
    • Doesn't the semi-colon do just that currently?
      • Yeah, but the sentence is still really long.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 04:23, October 19, 2014 (UTC)
        • Not seeing how the sentence is too long. I've got longer ones in the body, namely paragraph one sentence 2.
  • Just checking, but was the cruiser damaged during the same battle mentioned earlier?
    • Yep, it took a pounding at Obroa-skai.
      • Could you try and make this more clear. With the mention of shifting the New Republic base, it is hard to tell whether the escort mission was immediately following the battle, which makes it unclear whether the fighting is the previously mentioned battle or simply speaking of the war itself.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 04:23, October 19, 2014 (UTC)
        • There.
  • Surely there is enough information to say that the frigate had engines in the description and infobox.
    • Added.
  • Could you make it clearer that the New Republic tender was present for the battle before saying it was destroyed?
    • There, tweaked "New Republic ships were attacked" to "three ships were attacked" to clarify that the tender stuck with them.
  • "after Twin Suns Leader Jaina Solo had the frigate modify its position briefly to help in catching the coralskippers unaware" Is there any more information on this?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 14:06, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
    • Added a little more. Thanks for the review, and sorry for the stupid errors (Lancer-length etc). 501st dogma(talk) 15:18, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
      • Does the last part with the Whip Hand hiding Twin Suns Squadron happen first? If so, I think it would be better to mention this first.
        • It does, but that's why I say they make the pass "after" the hiding part happens.
  • Intro: "and despite managing to drive the starfighters off with the help of two squadrons of their own" This makes it sound like one of the two ships launced the fighters, which I assume is not the case looking at the body.
    • Tweaked.
  • Does the source say where the shuttle came from?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 04:23, October 19, 2014 (UTC)
    • Nope. 501st dogma(talk) 13:47, October 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • Lacks sourcing throughout.
  • Linking really needs to be checked.
    • Still lacking throughout, particularly past the intro.
      • This still isn't fixed. 1358 (Talk) 22:29, October 8, 2014 (UTC)
  • I'll review it again once these glaring issues have been fixed. 1358 (Talk) 20:22, October 4, 2014 (UTC)
    • I have added additional references on Behind the scenes and added what links I could find. There is really only one reference and one appearance for the main content: Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan. Are you just saying that I should link it in more places? I do seem to recall though reading that it doesn't need to be referenced in the intro. As for the linking, I think that's about all that can be done, unless you believe that certain items mentioned in the article are worthy of their own articles that haven't been created yet. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:43, October 5, 2014 (UTC)
      • You need to source everything. Every paragraph, every infobox item, needs a reference. See other GAs for examples. 1358 (Talk) 08:46, October 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • Please use the same layout for pets as for individuals (see Gor for precedent).
  • References go after punctuation. 1358 (Talk) 14:59, October 7, 2014 (UTC)
    • Done and done. Doesn't really have much in the way of a personality, sort of a Star Wars tribble, but I did what I could. As for the linking, again, I really think that's about all that can be done, unless you think maybe something like Roan's journal or the care center would be article-worthy. ProfessorTofty (talk) 18:01, October 8, 2014 (UTC)
      • Still present in the infobox.
  • Please use bullet lists for infobox fields with multiple entries.
  • You don't need to source the name in the infobox.
  • To be honest, I think most of the big glaring issues in this article could be fixed by reading other Good Articles. They should give you a general idea of what a GAN should look like. 1358 (Talk) 22:29, October 8, 2014 (UTC)
    • Objections regarding punctuation and using bullets taken care of. Well, actually, the latter really took care of the former. As for your latter point, I'm looking at Ceasar right now, and it actually seems like you're holding me to a higher standard, as that article has no references or sourcing whatsoever. Anyway, I've answered all of your objections, save the bit about the linking. Again, unless you feel that more links should be added because other subjects are article-worthy, I don't see anything else to be linked. I can't just conjure them. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:34, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
      • Just interjecting here, Ceasar is an anomaly with the lack of sourcing which will be fixed. All GANs need to be sourced. 501st dogma(talk) 22:49, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
      • Actually, Ceasar gets away with that for historical reasons. A year or two ago, articles with a single source didn't require referencing (although it was still recommended), but that was changed a while ago. Thanks to your observation, it'll probably be on the agenda for the next AgriCorps meeting, as it definitely needs to be fully referenced now. However, look at any other GA and you'll see that they're all (hopefully) completely referenced as they should be. As for linking, what I'm trying to say here is that the intro and the body should work independently. That isn't the case right now—if you disregard the intro, the biography starts off completely abruptly. You should make sure to rewrite the beginning of the intro to properly introduce who Voorpee actually is. As for the linking, since the intro and the body are independent from each other, every subject needs to be linked both in the intro and the body. 1358 (Talk) 22:50, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
        • Okay, sorry that I seized on Ceasar (heh), but I was looking for an example of another named pet that was a good article, and that was the one that came up at the top. Anyway, I think I'm really starting to get this now. I've made updates to both the intro and main body and I think, hope, that all problems should be squared away now. ProfessorTofty (talk) 18:54, October 12, 2014 (UTC)
  • Does Coruscant really count as homeworld in the infobox if he was only on loan?
  • Is there any sort of timeline given in the source material? If yes, specify. If no, how do we know it's Rise of the Empire era?
  • A lot of things are mentioned in your article with any sort of context. As a general rule, most things require at least some context. I'm just looking at the intro right now, and the first sentence requires context for Coruscant and Roan. Please go over the article and give context to things when they're first mentioned. 1358 (Talk) 20:30, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
    • Regarding the first point-- well, he spent nearly a year there, if not longer, so it really became a sort of home. The article for homeworld states that it could be a world that one migrated to. Still, if you feel it's stretching the point, I could just remove it. Regarding the second question-- yes. In the first book, it is stated that Yoda is 700 years old. So we've sort of been running with that for articles related to the series. In any case, the series does clearly depict a pre-Clone Wars Yoda. I can try to add a more specific citation, though, if you feel one is necessary. (Edit-- never mind, I just went ahead and added the direct reference.) Last point-- all right, that one I'll work on, should have done in a couple days at most.

  • I thought that Sith Pureblood was supposed to be capitalized.
    • Apparently not, according to the Codex.
  • You cite a lot of the first part of the biography to the time citation. Shouldn't another reference be used here?
    • Yeah, added.
  • Could you make it clear how the Knight found out about her mission in the biography?
    • Well, you don't have to tell her when she asks, so I left it vague.
  • Do you think it would be appropriate to link to this somewhere?
    • Not really, since she's not really friends with her pets...
  • "such a trance caused her to float above the ground and generated a sphere of lightning around her" Could the lightning simply be a protection measure and not necessarily a part of the trance?
    • Changed.
  • Could you change one of the uses of "trained" in the last sentence of the Powers and abilities section?--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 14:25, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

  • I notice that the article for the settlement has it at Lake Brell colony without a conjecture tag. If this is correct, you should mention this name in the article.

  • Death needs to be mentioned in intro
    • Alright. Wasn't sure because of game mechanics. Wasn't sure if it was needed in the infobox either.
      • Well, other articles with game mechanics have it in intro and infobox. See Cha'nagh.
  • Is there any way to get a better image color wise? You can't tell that he's brown skinned with purple eyes.
    • It's the image provided in the game guide. I thought about color, but wasn't sure how it would look "accuracy" wise. Also, getting the game to run on Windows 8 is a pain in the ass. If you think it's really necessary, as I understand the reasons as to why, I'll try and see if I can get to it.
      • Well, how did you find out that his skin was brown and so forth?
        • Because I've been playing the game for years. Also, the Gran are clearly lighter colored in this picture compared to this Gran (Yes, he's a live action actor, but his in-game model reflects his color scheme). Again, depending on my luck with the game, I might be able to get an in-game group screenshot. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 23:48, October 17, 2014 (UTC)
          • If you can get it to work, then get a new picture, but otherwise, if it's being a big pain, don't bother. 501st dogma(talk) 12:51, October 18, 2014 (UTC)
  • Article for the bartender?
  • Shouldn't his infobox affiliation be Imperial, as he was hired by them? You can add a {{c|hired by}} maybe.
    • Forgot about that. Added, although I was wondering if it should use a {{c}} or say "Hired by X"
  • "Katan then collected any supplies in the bar before leaving." Collecting any supplies doesn't work here, and I don't think that this needs to be in the article. 501st dogma(talk) 00:24, October 17, 2014 (UTC)
  • In the intro, you have the Grans attacking Katarn, while the body has them only turning their attention to him. Which one is correct? 501st dogma(talk) 12:29, October 17, 2014 (UTC)
    • I kinda meant it as the same thing, but it should read clearer now. When you enter the bar, the Gran (sometimes) stop fighting and attack you. It is possible for them to not notice you, however. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 01:11, October 18, 2014 (UTC)
