New Featured Article Voting and Review Process
Checkmark green The last voting phase is over. Congratulations to the candidates who were voted in. The discussion regarding the future name of the review panel has also finished. The result was to name the review panel the Imperial Guards.


Now that we voted in favor of having some mandatory criteria for Featured articles, it was discussed that we would also need a panel of Brickipedians who insure that articles nominated for FA status meet those standards, point out any improvements that need to be made and make sure that the users vote accordingly. The idea behind this is to make a FA nomination more like an opportunity to point out and remedy possible shortcomings of FA candidates while the vote is going on, instead of plainly rejecting articles and thus, to raise the overall quality of Brickipedia. Some Brickipedians have outlined the future duties of such a panel.

Please vote on them and tell us of your opinions.

Duties of the panel

  1. Review all Featured Article nominations and either A) approve or B) reject them in a vote, based on the quality and adherence to FA criteria of the article. Once an article has a total of 5 votes, with at least 3 votes coming from the review panel 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." FA candidates can be rejected without a panel vote if removal of the nomination is requested by the original nominator.
  2. Strike unnecessary or irrelevant objections from the FA nomination page. Members of the panel have the power to strike objections on the Featured Article candidates page provided the objection has been addressed and the original objector has been absent for at least a week after an "objection addressed" comment is left on the FA candidates page, but only with a quorum of at least three panel members approving the removal of the objection, and less than two opposed. Additionally, FA objections can be struck by the panel (as well as by any admin) if they do not fall under one of the rules.
  3. Review and possibly remove FA status from an article. panel members also have the ability to strip an article of FA status, but only with approval of at least three panel members.

Details

The panel consists of five Brickipedians. Those panel members were chosen by a straight majority vote.

Remaining stuff

Make suggestions for the name of the review panel. The future name should be LEGO-related and echo the function of the panel. Wookieepedia named this body "Inquisitorius", Harry Potter Wiki went with "Department of Mysteries".

Suggestions

Well, here are a few suggestions of mine (none that I partiluarly like, just trying to start getting some ideas out there)

  • Crown Knights (from Castle)
  • Good (or Evil :D) Wizards (from Castle)
  • Agents (from Agents)
  • Drones (from Agents)
  • Henchmen (from Agents/Batman)
  • Imperial Guards (from Pirates)
  • Little Green Men (from the upcoming Toy Story line)
  • Turaga (from Bionicle)

Personally I think LegOtaku's suggestion of Alpha Team is the best so far, but still doesn't really convey a message that this is a reviewing board NightblazeSaber 07:45, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

  • I have to say that I like the Imperial Guards one. Alpha Team is cool though too.
Hehe...Little Green Men that would be hilarious.

  • My idea is Jedi Council Members or Jedi Masters. It reflects on a leadership role along with a council-type part. Jag 18:28, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
    • Or Jedi Council or The Jedi Council, as it is a name for the group, rather than a title for a person. Jag 18:28, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
      • Haha! Good one Captain Rex! But I like the Imperial Guards and Agents! They're articles that really "Attract my attention!" (Wow, I must be doing too many book reports!) :P -Nerfblasterpro: It's Nerf, or Nothing!Maverick 16:04, November 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • I'd like to suggest Royal Knights (has some 'councilly' feel to it) and Crusaders (because that panel is on a 'crusade' for better articles). --LegOtaku (talk • contr) 16:31, November 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • "Little Green Men" for sure. It just sounds hilarious, and because of it's oddity, that might attract users. (with a sense of humor :P) Construction Worker Do you need help? 00:58, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  • Maybe we should start a vote or something for these names? We should probably have a name ready for when the voting's all over. Just to reorganise it a bit, the current suggestions are below NightblazeSaber 23:13, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Alpha Team
Agents
Crown Knights
Crusaders
Drones

Good Wizards
Henchmen
Imperial Guards
Jedi Masters

Jedi Council Members
Little Green Men
Royal Knights
Turaga

  • I would have to say that my favorite would still be Imperial Guards.

    • I'm ok with that one, but I like some others there too- maybe we should try narrowing down the choices to make the decision a bit easier? Would anyone object to removing "henchmen" and "good wizards" from the list of options? NightblazeSaber 02:53, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
  • Just quickly I think somewhere in featured articles should be the family and some history of the LEGO Group.Gladiatoring 06:35, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
    • We could leave the suggestions there, and ask people to nominate names and the vote on then. If someone wanted an already suggested name they could nominate it, and if a name was not wanted by anyone it would just be left. Jag 06:29, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
      • How many votes do you each get? Jag 20:24, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
        • For this round (which is probably the only round) as many as you want NightblazeSaber 23:02, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

I like this name, but could we do something like Royal Knights instead? It would probably get more votes. -Nerfblasterpro: It's Nerf, or Nothing!Maverick 14:35, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

  • Royal Knights was voted down in the first round of voting when noone voted for it NightblazeSaber 22:19, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
  • Not that my vote would make any difference either way I voted, but I was torn between Crusaders and Imperial Guards, and couldn't make up my mind :) NightblazeSaber 03:28, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

  • It almost seems like it should just be Jedi Council...

    • Sorry- I added the wrong option- the idea behind this was to call individual members Jedi Council Members, and the collective group the Jedi Council. Since Jedi Council is the group name, and all other nominees are for the group name, it's been changed. NightblazeSaber 08:26, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Still a funny name that will attract some more attention. Construction Worker Do you need help? 20:39, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
