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.

Rules:
Scoring and conditions for passing a nomination:

  1. All nominations start with an initial score of zero.
  2. A supporting vote adds 1 to the score.
  3. An opposing vote subtracts 1 from the score.
  4. An article needs to achieve a score of +5 within 4 months of the nomination date in order to be featured.
  5. A nomination automatically fails if the score drops to -3.

Voting:

  1. You may only vote once on any particular article.
  2. You may not vote on any articles you have nominated.
  3. Votes should be added beneath the relevant header (either support or opposition), with # at the beginning of the line. The current score must be updated to reflect this new vote.
  4. Supporting votes should include a brief message stating why the article should be featured.
  5. Opposing votes must specify how the article fails to meet one or more of the qualifying criteria described above.
  6. All votes MUST be signed using ~~~~ If you do not sign, your vote WILL NOT be counted!


Currently Nominated

Medli

A really good article with lots of refrences.--Link hero of light 17:46, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

  1. This article has lot of references and it deserves the place.(Unsigned vote by Molgeratwinmold99 — see rule 6 above.)
  2. Alright, fine. I'm not going to waste my July vote, so I'll cast it for Medli. It's about as long as it's going to get without becoming tedious. --Felicia's Champion, 16:29, 16 July 2008 (EST)

  1. Hmm... This article doesn't have a lot of references. It is mostly references. It is much too short to be a featured article.--Matt 13:20, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

The Golden Goddesses

An important article explaining an important part of all Zelda Games. UPDATE: Nayru's Statue now included.Seablue 12:46, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

  1. Now this is an interesting nomination! I'd almost forgotten about this one, and it does tick a lot of boxes. Most of the content is down to one particularly dedicated editor, who did a very nice job - I'd say this ticks all the right boxes :) User:Adamcox82/sig18:25, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
  2. First, let me tell you that I was molgeratwinmold99 but I forgot my password :P But anyway, even if they're mentioned or not, Naryu, Din, and Farore are worth a featured article. Molgeratwinmold55 13:05, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
  3. I think it's a very good article; it deserves to be featured! --Emeryn 23:24, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. Could have a pic of Nayru's statue, but a good article anyway --Bolter1

  1. I like this article a lot but it's divided too much and it's kind of messed up. --Gluemann267

Veran

A little known boss among the majority of Zelda players here. Likely three or four of us have actually fought her. Her article is in much better shape than Onox's article. It fits the criteria. --Felicia's Champion 05:27, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

  1. You've been working on this for a long time, Yuvorias, and your efforts have payed off. Very nice article. Seablue 12:35, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Darknut

This is a very detailed article. It also happens to be one of our most-viewed articles on the wiki. The article also has many references. That is not an easy thing to do with such a common enemy. It is well-organized. There are several images of good quality throughout the page. It is a great article. Time to make it featured.User:Mjr162006/sig 07:03, July 22, 2008 (UTC)
