Here, users can nominate and vote for Zelda Wiki's next featured article. Any article worthy of being featured exemplifies the Wiki's quality standards, and goes above and beyond what is expected in a normal encyclopedia entry. Featured articles should:

  1. Have exceptionally fluid American English grammar and spelling.
  2. Be lengthy, yet detailed.
  3. Be well organized (as in subdivisions).
  4. Cite sources, and cite them properly.
  5. Be properly categorized.
  6. Contain the most up-to-date information possible.
  7. Have no template requesting improvement, merging, deletion, or any template that may in some way state the article is not of excellent quality. In this respect, there should be no duplicate of the nominated article, nor should the article be a duplicate of another page.
  8. NOT be copied from Wikipedia, or from any site that does not run the Wiki, under any circumstances!

For help on the correct format used to add nominations or votes, see the Featured Content Help.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Ishinomori)

This page is quite well done. It's heavily reffed, and it covers the full story of the comic in a professional and exceptional manner without any supposititions or theorizing. I think it would make a nice addition to the featured article collection.User:Justin/sig 11:30, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

  1. This page is excellently written, very informative, and includes a more than adequate number of references. It's very hard to find an article of this caliber that covers a non-canon topic. It's got my vote. Dannyboy601Talk 15:43, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
  2. Definitely gotta agree with this. All articles on the site should use this as the standard for good citing and informative content. You can count my vote -- Bwar (talk) 15:59, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
  3. This certainly a well written article, I can't think of any reasons not to feature it. William (Talk) 19:57, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
