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 favorite 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 five votes, with at least two votes coming from Unspeakables 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.

Every two weeks, 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.

  • This needs considerable work. In five minutes I have seen a dozen errors in grammar, poor wording, and british spelling. --Hcoknhoj 08:24, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
    • After making nearly 200 changes, it is at least grammatically correct and has improved continuity and storytelling. --Hcoknhoj 23:53, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
      • Anyone want to look through this one after me? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 00:10, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
        • Get rid of the references in the introduction. It is a good article besides that.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 00:26, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
          • Reading just the Behind the Scenes section, I feel that this article may violate the Neutral Point of View Policy, e. g. Peter was untalented. McGonagall and Lupin claimed it, but it´s not true, as revealed by reading the books and the Magical abilities section.--Rodolphus 15:42, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
          • You said Behind the Scenes. I'll take a look at it. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 15:49, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • Nowhere does it say that. Throughout the article it says things such as, "Despite being called ____, he was actually _____." It shows up at least three times in the Article. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 15:56, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
            • The last point of BTS says: Wormtail is reciprocal of Severus Snape: Wormtail is a Gryffindor who is cowardly, disloyal, untalented, friend of the Marauders but disrespected by the Voldemort, while Snape is a Slytherin who is brave, loyal, talented, enemy of the Marauders but respected by Voldemort. Also, in their school years, Wormtail took pleasure in bullying Snape, while in their adulthood, Snape bullied Wormtail. Emphasis was added by me. It makes Snape sond like the best man ever. How can we fix it?--Rodolphus 16:21, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
  • We strike it for now. It is an unnecessary comparison as they are already compared above. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 17:03, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Preliminaries:
    • Similar to the above nomination, everything needs to be sourced, so you need references for everything in the infobox and the article itself (except the intro).
    • Parts of this article are written in the present tense and per a recent vote, this needs to be changed to past-tense. Grunny (Talk) 09:44, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
      • Fixed both problems.--L.V.K.T.V.J.'Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 21:21, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
        • Good work adding some references, but there are still a few missing, for example the second paragraph of the history, and every item in the infobox must be soruced individually. Take a look at some of the Featured articles at Wookieepedia to get a better idea what type of sourcing is expected of quality articles. As for the tense, there are still a few instances of future or present tense in the article, i.e. "the Elder Wand does not ensure the victory of its master in a duel, nor render him or her invincible".
    • Another point, avoid speculation. Articles are written in-universe, so fan speculation should only be included in the behind the scenes section, and then, only if it is a widely acknowledged fan theory. So for example this really shouldn't be in the article: "(This may not be entirely true, as theoretically all one would have to do is disarm Harry by force as he did to Malfoy)." Grunny (Talk) 23:01, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
      • I fully referenced everything in the infobox and did everything you mentioned. Say something back if I missed anything.--L.V.K.T.V.J.'Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 23:47, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
  2. Margiechocoholic Medieval Broomstick Owl me! 09:48, February 21, 2010 (UTC) Although a good article, it lacks subtitling and neatness, it seems a bit dense when you take a first glance at it. Could also use some more pictures.

Comments

  • We have gone through the History and separated the Myth from the reality and in general cleaned up the article. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 20:59, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Pomona Sprout

  • Nominator: Butterfly the rabbit
  • Nomination comments: I have recently rewritten the Irma Pince and Filius Flitwick articles and finished rewriting Sprout the other day. I believe it is of sufficient quality of a featured article.

  1. Grunny:
    • To start off, there are two unreferenced items in the infobox that need to be sourced.
    • Likewise, the second bullet point of the "Behind the scenes" section needs a reference.
    • Early life section:
      • You don't mention his parents in the Biography. Note that there should be nothing in the introduction that isn't covered in the biography.
      • "The Ministry of Magic discovered this, among other incidents, and presumably performed a Memory Charm on Tom." "Presumably" is very uncertain wording and suggests that this is original research which shouldn't be included in an article unless it can be backed up by significant evidence from a reliable source. So did they perform a memory charm or not? If so, what source clarifies that they did?
    • I'll continue reading it once you've handled these few objections. Good work so far, and sorry I took so long to get to this review! Grunny (talk) 04:24, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
      • I fixed everything you mentioned except the fourth bullet, as I don't see it in the intro, Biography, Personality, or relationships. If you can point it out to me I will gladly fix it. Thanks.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 01:09, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
        • It's in the Early life section of the biography, second sentence of the second paragraph: "When her brother Morfin noticed her interest, he hexed Tom with hives. The Ministry of Magic discovered this, among other incidents, and presumably performed a Memory Charm on Tom." I'll look over it again soon :-). Grunny (talk) 01:24, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
    • Early life – "made her play" is a little colloquial can you find a better way to word this? "While they were gone, Merope made her play for Tom."
    • The "Personality and traits" section needs to be gone over. It needs to be in past-tense just like the rest of the article, and you need to avoid speculatory wording and state only the facts. Words like "seems" and "likely" suggest original research which is discouraged in encyclopedic articles. Grunny (talk) 23:13, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
      • I could not think of a proper wording for the first objection, so I replaced it with foreshadowing for the next section. I also did the best I could on the other objecton.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 02:06, April 28, 2010 (UTC)
        • I reworded this for you. In encyclopedia articles it is important not to make your own assumptions as they will often be different to others. Articles should remain non-point of view and not have original research. So it is better to state facts and let the reader infer what they can from the info. Grunny (talk) 04:03, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Seth Cooper:
    • The article does not provide any references/sources whatsoever.
    • Some topics in the "Biography" are just too short; "Protection of the Philosopher's stone", for instance. That section should cover the time when H, R & H accidentally tried to enter the Forbidden Corridor but were saved from Filch by Quirrel who "just happened" to be passing by; the midnight duel; etc.
    • Lack of images. There are loads of images of Filch that could be included in the "Biography" section.
    • Lack of quotes. There's only one quote in the whole article, and it's repeated twice (both in the lead and in "Personality and traits")
    • I think there's still a lot of work to do before this becomes a FA. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:00, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Since there is controversy surrounding the pictures of it, I do not think it is very smart to nominate it for an F.A.. Also, merging it with the unidentified teacher page suggests alot of original research, which is not valued in encyclopedia articles.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 20:37, May 14, 2010 (UTC)~
