Wikipedia:Proposed very good articles

Very good articles are the highest status of articles at Simple English Wikipedia. In order to become a very good article, there are certain criteria that the article must meet. These criteria can be found at Wikipedia:Requirements for very good articles.

This page is to discuss articles to decide whether they meet the VGA criteria. When an article is posted here for discussion, it should have the {{pvgood}} tag placed on it. This will place the article in Category:Proposed very good articles.

Articles which are accepted by the community as very good articles have their {{pvgood}} tag replaced with {{vgood}}. They are also listed on Wikipedia:Very good articles and are placed in Category:Very good articles. Articles which are not accepted by the community as very good articles have their {{vgood}} tag removed.

Articles that are below the very good article criteria can be nominated to be a good article at Wikipedia:Proposed good articles.

If you choose to participate in the discussion process for promoting articles, it is very important that you know and understand the criteria for very good articles. Discussing an article is a promise to the community that you have thoroughly read the criteria and the article in question. You should be prepared to fully explain the reasons for your comment. This process should not be taken lightly, and if there is concern that a user is not taking the process seriously and/or is commenting without reason, they may have their privilege to participate taken away.

In order to make sure the article you are proposing meets the required size, use this tool. Please notice that the text size is important, not the wikitext size.

Christopher Plummer[change source]

Christopher Plummer (change · talk · history · links · watch · logs · delete)

Plummer's article has been a VGA target, especially since his passing in 2021. The article meets all VGA requirements: 1 (obviously), 2 (the article is very comprehensive and covers Mr. Plummer's career in good detail and with citations), 3 (the article is several kilobytes long), 4 (the article has gone through revisions [minor recently] and from some other users other than myself), 5 (check), 6 (recent edits have been minor), 7 (no red links, important terms linked), 8 (images used are relating to Mr. Plummer or his career and have been appropriately labelled), 9 (no tags) and 10 (check, article has a variety of sources/citations). --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 12:20, 12 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Weak Support Everything is just fine. But the citation, some links I saw were red, like reference no. 20. from national post I guess. --DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 07:05, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Changed my mind to Support--DRC (User:TTP1233) (talk . e-mail . contrib) 09:38, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @TTP1233: Fixed the minor red links in the citations. TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 07:26, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Support @Schiller12: I think it is very good, but would be improved by pictures of actors, or filming locations or sets. I couldn't find any problems with it at all. Lights and freedom (talk) 23:54, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I added pictures. So how does it work to get through the voting process? Not many people have gone to this page or have reviewed the recommendation. Schiller12 (talk) 19:37, 12 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Almost Per Lights and freedom. Some pics of the actors/director would be good for the article. Also, maybe replace the word film/films to movie/movies. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 13:08, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • It's not "almost" for me. I see the first stages of the film poorly represented in the early paragraphs. It's very difficult to write, but equal weight must be given to the early stages upon which the plot and characterisations are built. Also, I'm thinking about changes in New York and society in general, which the film does show, but rather as backdrop. The implications of this critique (if accepted) are that the account needs to be longer. Macdonald-ross (talk) 20:16, 17 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
