Featured articles of Zeldapedia are articles that represent the best articles Zeldapedia has to offer. For articles to be featured on the main page, see the queue. For previously featured articles, see Zeldapedia:Previous featured articles.

Criteria

So just what makes a featured article? Well, we've prepared a list just in case someone should ask that, and it is as follows.

An article must...

  1. ...be well written and detailed
  2. ...be unbiased and have a neutral point of view
  3. ...be factual and not incorporate theory presented as fact
  4. ...be properly sourced if controversial information is entered into it
  5. ...not be tagged with any sort of improvement templates (i.e. cleanup, expand, etc.)
  6. ...follow the Manual of Style.
  7. ...have a succinct proper lead that can be used for the front page featured box
  8. ...have a complete, detailed biography if it is a character article
  9. ...not be the subject of any ongoing edit wars

See here for a list of current featured articles on Zeldapedia. For more information on what makes a featured article, see Wikipedia:Wikipedia's treatise on featured articles.

How to nominate an article

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of featured status, putting it at the bottom of the list below; see criteria above. In addition, add {{nominated}} to the top of the article you are nominating so other users will know of and vote on the nomination.
  2. Certain users may object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is good enough; they must then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article (errors, style, organization, images, notability, sources). If no reason is supplied, their vote will not be counted until they do this.
  3. Supporters adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied.
  4. The article is placed on the featured article list and added to the front page queue.

How to vote

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes. Edit and fix these if you have time.
  2. Afterwards, 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.
  4. Once all objectors' complaints have been solved (or the article has 5 supports and no objections after at least seven days), the article will be added to the queue and be officially known as a "featured article".
  5. If a page reaches 5 supports, excluding the nominator, in at least seven days, without any opposes, it will be added automatically to the queue.

When an article garners the necessary supports for the nomination and any opposes are solved, the nomination will be archived, the article will be marked with the {{featured}} template, and eventually be highlighted on the main page as a featured article using the template {{Featured Article}}.

When an article is removed from the main page, {{featured}} will be replaced with {{FFeatured}} to indicate that the article has already been showcased on the main page.

Featured article nominations

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons

With the Oracle games coming to 3DS virtual console at the end of the month I figured there's no better time than now for the pages to be featured. Basically, my way of thinking is that we'll do the nomination for both articles under the same heading but feature them separately. Mainly because the nominations would look similar. Ages brings back the whole "Let's travel through time" thing and also focuses on those puzzle that all us Zelda fans love! Seasons on the other hand, focuses on action more instead of puzzles, so if you don't like making your brain work you can go around and kick some butt! Seasons lets us travel between two worlds as well! I'm not that knowledgeable of the Oracle games so I sound stupid... But Nayru and Din are featured in the games! Once again, Farore gets jipped.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

Spirit Tracks brings a new method of travel to the series that we all can complain about. Traveling by rail. Phantom Hourglass was featured and we all know that Phantom Hourglass is lesser than Spirit Tracks. However, Spirit Track's train system is a travel method that we never had before. Traveling by horse has been done as well as traveling by sea. Yeah, the Tower of Spirits is a nuisance and they shouldn't have brought it back after Phantom Hourglass, but they did, and I feel they did it far better than the Phantom Hourglass one. And the page isn't crap. And we need a good feed through of articles since we only have one for this month and June so we might as well get started suggesting!

Gibdo

This article is very well written and the pictures look nice and are placed equally well. This was one of the first pages I had read, and if I hadn't read it, then I probably wouldn't have made an account and gotten into a Zelda phase. Gibdo is an interesting creature and I honestly think that it would be great to have featured. I am VERY sad that it is not in Spirit Tracks. --Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help!

  1. Why not? It's a nice page (and a seriously intriguing first picture). -Skyward Sword Freak (talk) Slice of Pie 22:22, October 19, 2013 (UTC)
