The featured articles of the wiki are articles that represent the best that the Harry Potter Wiki has to offer. This is not a way to showcase the articles of your favourite characters, houses, or the like.


An article must…

  1. Be well-written and detailed.
  2. Be unbiased, non-point of view.
  3. Be sourced with all available sources and appearances.
  4. Follow the Layout Guide and all other policies on the Harry Potter Wiki.
  5. 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.
  6. Not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags (i.e. more sources, expand, etc).
  7. Have a proper lead that gives a good summary of the topic and can be used for the front page featured box.
  8. Have significant information from all sources and appearances, especially a biography for character articles.
  9. Be completely referenced for all available material and sources.
  10. Have all quotes and images sourced.
  11. 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.
  12. Include a "personality and traits" section on all character articles.
  13. Include a "magical skills and abilities" section on all relevant character articles, especially for Wizard characters where said powers and/or abilities are stipulated.
  14. Include a reasonable number of images of sufficient quality to illustrate the article, if said images are available.
  15. Pass review by the Department of Mysteries review panel.

How to nominate:

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of featured status, putting it at the bottom of the list below; see criteria above.
  2. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is good enough; they will then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article (errors, style, organisation, images, notability, sources).
  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.
  5. Also, if, at least a week after the article's nomination, that article has 2 Unspeakable supports and no objections (or the objections have been stricken or overridden), it will be added to the queue, and will be officially known as a "featured article."
  6. Be sure to place sign in the "Nominated by" line when the nomination is posted for voting.

How to vote:

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterwards, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination.
    1. 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. Do not strike other users' objections; it is up to the objector to review the changes and strike if they are satisfied.
  4. Once an article has a total of three votes, and no outstanding objections after at least a week, the article will be added to the list and be officially known as a "featured article."
  5. No nominator may vote for their own nominations.

Also remember to add {{F.A. Nomination}} at the top of the article you are nominating.

At least once every month, the next article in the queue will be highlighted on the Main Page as featured, marked with the {{FA}} template and removed from the list of nominations. The beginning of the article then appears on the Main Page via the {{Featured article}} template. Nominations that are inactive with outstanding objections for a month will be eliminated from the nominations list by the Unspeakables.

    • Looks good at a glance. Can you add references for each item in the infobox? Also, make sure references go after punctuation, i.e. "could open it.[1]" not "could open it[1]." I'll give it a copy-edit soon :). Grunny (talk) 06:21, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Comments

Okay, I am very hesitant to promote this one when the main image of the article lacks a source. That shouldn't be. Can anyone identify a source on this image? For that matter, I'd prefer a higher-resolution than 243 x 248. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:32, December 19, 2012 (UTC)
O. k., I've searched and found it here: http://harrypotterandyoursfriends.blogspot.de/2012/04/medallion-of-slytherin-voldemort-s.html. Hope that helps.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 00:09, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Looking good on the whole, however we've got an unsourced image here, this one-- File:Ravenclaw_with_wand.png. Any way we can get a source on this? Other than that, I linked up a couple of things that needed linking. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:38, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
Isn´t the image from the Philosopher's Stome or Chamber of Secrets game?--Rodolphus (talk) 16:43, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
Is it? I wouldn't know; I haven't played any of those games. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:13, January 3, 2013 (UTC)
Definitely not from the second video game, I just finished that one.. unless the PS1 and PS2 versions vary... --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:29, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, yes. They vary. And the PC and GBA/GBC versions are also differen. I definately remember her appearing in the PC version.--Rodolphus (talk) 07:44, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

If we can just get an ID on this, we can move forward. Alternatively, if the source of the image can't be identified, it can just be removed from the article; it has plenty of other images. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:27, January 8, 2013 (UTC)
Yes check Done -- I've just ID'd the picture; it's her Chocolate Frog Card from the PC version of Philosopher's Stone. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:16, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Unvote Everything looks good, well-referenced, definitely looks Featured-class to me. I can't see any objection, so I say a definite yes to this one. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:35, January 8, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Unvote Plenty of references, and well laid-out. No objections. - Nick O'Demus 13:44, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

  • On the whole, looks good. Well-referenced, very extensive biography section. However, we've got just one small problem again, another unreferenced image, this here-- File:Fat_Friar_Pottermore.jpg. It's claimed as being from Pottermore, but it doesn't have any copyright tag. I'll see if I can track it down later, but if anyone wants to do so before I get to it, that would be helpful. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:28, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
    • It's definaately from the Deathday scene.--Rodolphus (talk) 08:29, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
      • I've added the references for the image. - Nick O'Demus 13:44, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Comments Same as above, again great on the whole, but there's this image here - File:112.jpg - claims to be an image of her on set, but it has no sourcing information, no category information, no description whatsoever. And unlike the one above, this may be a bit harder to track down. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:32, January 14, 2013 (UTC)


Given it has many images, cozldn´t we remove it until we have a source?--Rodolphus (talk) 09:44, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Bloody Baron (+2)

  1. Unvote Ah, very good, one without any issues related to the images. Everything else looks good, so I say yes to this one. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:35, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Unvote Fine in layout and content to me. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:28, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Object I have to object at this time. The article has no notes and references whatsoever, and that is a big no-no when it comes to Featured article. Everything needs to be sourced up. The article could also use a physical appearance section also. The main image has dubious sourcing/public domain status and there's at least one other unsourced image. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:32, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

I am working on cleaning up this article, so perhaps once I've published it if someone can do a review of it? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 02:42, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
Absolutely, keep working on it and let us know here once you think it's up to snuff for featured article status. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:45, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Rodolphus Lestrange (-1)

(0 Unspeakables/0 Users/0 Total)

Object Sorry, but still a bit lacking in overall references and maybe could use a couple more quotes and such. I'd say this one is very close, but it could still use a bit of work. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:37, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

  1. With the problematic image removed from the article, I no longer have any objection to promoting this one. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:24, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

  • Ah, very good. This article is extremely detailed, and very well-sourced. Same problem as some of the other articles above, though, we just have one image that's unsourced, and that's this here -- File:Menterisihirid-5.jpg. If we can clear that up, I think this one is a great choice. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:50, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
    • That image should probably be removed anyway. The "Zazzle" watermark isn't appropriate for an in-universe article. - Nick O'Demus 13:48, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
