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. The Circle reviews and votes on all nominations. Users can comment on the articles below with their opinions.

An article must…

  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.

  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 - include relevant dialogue that does not fit better on other pages, such as, for example, on quest pages.
  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.)

Nominations

Hel Ra Citadel

I personally spent some time running through the article and the trial both, and I'm convinced this can be a Good Article. The walkthrough is detailed and helpful enough for the common The Elder Scrolls Online player to utilize.

Support

Voting-support Support – As nominator. The Dagonator (talk) 19:17, October 20, 2018 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – In my eyes, this fits under the categories required to be a Good Article. My only issue, however, is in the #Walkthrough section, the dialogue boxes seem to merge under the image of the Celestial Warrior. Otherwise, full-out support. —Nehpys ("AlyMar1994") (Talk) 13:18, November 3, 2018 (UTC)

Neutral

Oppose

Voting-oppose Oppose – I believe I oppose nomination of a page by the person who did 99% of the edits on the page. DaBarkspawn (talk) 18:21, October 22, 2018 (UTC)

Comments

Voting-comment Comment – I'd like to note that many people nominate articles that they add to. It's up to us (now the full userbase rather than just the circle) to decide if it's good or not. Ottoman Hold Message Me My Action 09:57:56 October 22, 2018

Voting-comment Comment – Sure, I totally agree with that. But I think there is a difference between adding to an article and writing the entire thing. To me, the point of the process is Community appreciation, not self-congratulation. DaBarkspawn (talk) 23:02, October 22, 2018 (UTC)
Voting-comment Comment – I'd like to comment on this supposition.
I. I did not write the entire article. The article saw the help of the illustrious MHInf, who have added a better screenshot than any I, or the other users for that matter, could ever take. I had utilized images uploaded by Idel sea Qatarhael, a reputed editor from the Russian wiki, whom HAD basically edited the entire article in, and expertly so.
II. You're opposing a nomination based entirely on your own viewpoint, strictly outside of the guidelines and requirements for a Good Article.
III. Finally, going by that logic, DaBarkspawn, you would have to refute Atv's "The Queen's Decree" article nomination because Atv did "99% of the work." If you truly believe in "community appreciation," I dare you to go ahead and oppose its most appreciated user.—The Dagonator (talk) 14:41, October 23, 2018 (UTC)
Voting-comment Comment – Responses as follows:
I. I went by https://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Hel_Ra_Citadel?action=history . I did not say you wrote all of it or that no one else contributed. I said that you wrote 99% of it, which as a rhetorical approximation is correct. In the above, on reread, I should have written "nearly the entire thing" if you want to be picky about it.
II. Yep, I am. You want my vote, you need to satisfy my criteria and that includes not engaging in self-praise. Or are you telling me how to vote?
III. I wasn't here when that was put up for nomination, but yes, I would have made the same complaint. Dare accepted: I choose to be consistent about I feel about this process, regardless of who engages in it. DaBarkspawn (talk) 14:27, October 23, 2018 (UTC)
Voting-comment Comment – There is nothing in the good article criteria against users nominating pages which they have significantly contributed to. —1857a (talk) 21:10, October 28, 2018 (UTC)
Voting-comment Comment – I am not saying there is. I'm stating why I oppose the nomination. Look, if the nomination should succeed on purely mechanical criteria such as checking off a checklist in the criteria, there is no purpose in having a vote - it either matches the criteria or it doesn't. If there is some opinion by the voters involved which transcends or is in addition to the criteria, then a vote is reasonable. I assert the latter case here. DaBarkspawn (talk) 21:23, October 28, 2018 (UTC)
Voting-comment Comment – Editors are supposed to confirm whether or not the article meets the criteria. We decided recently that the best way to do this is through a discussion and then a vote to solidify said discussion (we're not actually supposed to vote yet, btw). It does not have the same level of subjectivity as a staff vote but we still need to formalize it somehow.
Personally, I don't see any real issues with the article, nor do I see an issue with a user nominating an article they've written for a status. If it meets the requirements, it should receive it. I would be fine with this one getting GA. —Atvelonis (talk) 01:33, October 29, 2018 (UTC)
