Awful Movies Wiki:Featured Article

From Awful Movies Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

"Featured Articles" are pages on the Awful Movies Wiki chosen to be highlighted on the wiki's main page because of their quality, their importance as a work or concept, or just because they're fun to read. Whenever a user opens the wiki's home page, an article feature will be selected for display. Part of the purpose behind Featured Articles is to direct new or infrequent users of the wiki to "the best of the best".

While the wiki moderators chose the initial set of articles, any user can nominate an article for Featured Article status.

Nomination Process

Articles are nominated by adding them to this page in the section below. Periodically, the moderators will go through the list that has accumulated, evaluate the nominations, and add those pages they think make the grade to the list of pages to be displayed. Then the nomination section of this page will be blanked to await new suggestions.

Please note that once a page is on the featured list, it is there permanently -- there's no need to flog a page by submitting it over and over again after it's already been selected. On the other hand, it's always okay to resubmit a page that didn't make the grade previously -- it may have been dramatically rewritten since the last time it was nominated, and might pass muster this time around.

What Qualifies an Article as a Feature?

  1. The most essential element of a featured article is the fact that the section criticizing the film/company must be very extensive and long, where almost every possible pointer shouldn't be short, which would ultimately be at risk of disqualification. Also the page should definitely be finished.
  2. The page should have at least the correct grammar and spelling.
  3. The page should definitely use punctuation marks, for example a dot at the end of a sentence.
  4. The pages should be free from sentences written in unnecessary bold, italics or caps.
    • Bold is only used for the name of the element being discussed by the page, which can only be used once; by the way, you can add to critic sections, so as not to overuse.
    • Italics are only used when providing a title, for example a film, except to add it in other cases.
    • Caps shouldn't be used in many unnecessary places, for example, in the middle of a sentence, unless something is mentioned, such as title.
  5. It must contain an infobox that should be legible.
  6. The article should contain references in certain sections.
  7. The "Reception" section is a necessary element to prove to the reader how the game/hardware was actually received from beyond the perspective of the author of the article.
    • While if you can't find any source that has reviewed it, you can add reviews from YouTube to the "Videos" section, if there is any video.
  8. You can optionally add a "Trivia" section, depending on the popularity of the criticized element in question. If it's something obscure, it's easy to let go of.
