How to nominate[edit]

Here is template for nominations:

===[[ARTICLE]] (1 vote, stays until [[DATE ONE WEEK LATER]])===
:''Nominated [[MONTH DAY]], [[YEAR]]; needs at least 3 votes by [[DATE ONE WEEK LATER]], [[YEAR]]''

; Support:
# (sign with four tildes)

; Comments:
* (put your reason for nomination, sign again)

  1. Copy and paste the template to the bottom of the list of nominations on this page and fill it out. It is important to use UTC time; the current time and date now is 20:25, Tuesday, September 21, 2021 (UTC).
  2. Under "comments" section put explanation of what work is needed.
  3. After submitting the new nomination, go to the nominated article and put {{COTW}}{{to do}} on the top of the article's talk page.

How to vote[edit]

Sign with "# ~~~~" on the end of the list of the article you want to vote for and then update the vote count in the subhead. Opposing votes are not counted; see approval voting.

  • Only registered users may vote, and their first edit must have been before the article was nominated.
  • Only support votes and comments should be added, as the articles are chosen by approval voting.
  • Only vote for articles that you will personally help to improve, either with research or with writing.
  • Do not vote for all of the nominations. If you do, your votes will be discounted, as people can't expect you to work on all of them.
  • The article with the most votes at selection time will become the next COTW.
  • Articles that fail to receive 3 votes per week from the time of nomination will be removed from this page.

You can vote for as many articles as you like. If, after you vote, the vote count equals the "needs at least xx votes by", then add 3 to "needs at least xx votes" and add a week to date in vote count and "needs at least xx votes by" notice.

Example. You encounter this situation and decide to vote:

===[[History of X]] (23 votes, stays until [[February 7]], [[2006]])===
:''Nominated [[December 8]], [[2005]]; needs at least 24 votes by [[February 7]], [[2006]]''

First you put "# ~~~~" on the end of the list of people who voted for that article and then change the vote count and date in following manner:

===[[History of X]] (24 votes, stays until [[February 14]], [[2006]])===
:''Nominated [[December 8]], [[2005]]; needs at least 28 votes by [[February 14]], [[2006]]''

How the article is elected[edit]

Article with most votes on each Sunday in 00:00 UTC is elected as "The current Article Improvement Drive article". If two articles have same number of votes, the older nominee wins.

The next project article is to be selected on Sunday, July 9, 2006. 00:00 UTC (in 5 days)

How an article is removed from the list[edit]

Articles need three votes per week to stay on the list. If current date (September 21 2021) exceeds "stays until" date of particular article, that article entry is removed from this page and moved to failed nominations.


Mud (4 votes, stays until July 8, 2006)[edit]

Nominated June 14, 2006; needs at least 6 votes by July 8, 2006

Given how much of it there is around, we ought to be able to write a better article, I think.

Legal history (3 votes, stays until July 11, 2006)[edit]

Nominated June 26, 2006; needs at least 6 votes by July 11, 2006

Could be a good summary article which I was surprised to find doesn't exist. We already have: History of patent law, History of international law, History of copyright law, History of Canadian nationality law, History of British nationality law, History of abortion law, etc. This article could be the main article for Category:History of law, and provide a good introduction and global perspective to these topics. I would prefer the title History of law for parallelism but more importantly, we need to get to work on this topic. savidan(talk) (e@) 16:40, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Waterfowl (3 votes, stays until July 14, 2006)[edit]

Nominated June 28, 2006; needs at least 6 votes by July 14, 2006

the various waterfowl (eg ducks and geese), are some of the most common and most important birds in the world. Yet, this is a downright terrible stub. There is maybe a paragraph of actual content. The rest of this "article" is a section entitled "places to see waterfowl." This section is completely unnecessary, as waterfowl are almost everywhere, not to mention wholly unencyclopedic. This article needs some good old fashioned TLC.

  • And now it appears the earliest dinosaur/birds were waterfowl. Good catch! Davodd 08:53, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

History of Sicily (7 votes, stays until July 20, 2006)[edit]

Nominated June 30, 2006; needs at least 9 votes by July 20, 2006

This island has a very rich history and it deserves own article. Some info should be inserted from Sicily article.

Québécois (2 votes, stays until July 11, 2006)[edit]

Nominated July 4, 2006; needs at least 9 votes by July 11, 2006

Very important group in Canadian culture. How this is still a stub is beyond me.

  • I think the reason why the article on Québécois is still a stub is that a lot of Anglophones don't kow much about Québécois culture. --chemica 16:56, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
