Boobpedia:Featured article

Boobpedia - Encyclopedia of big boobs
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an attempt to start a Featured article project.

So far, the criteria for an article to become featured on the main page are not transparent. There are a few articles on Boobpedia that have grown with time, well sourced and providing detailed information on the subject. Many of them are already better than corresponding articles on Wikipedia, and some of them have even become some of the most comprehensive collections of information on a topic in the internet.

Feel free to add your comments on the discussion page. Feel free to add articles to this list of suggestions.

Admins: Please comment if there are commercial reasons for an article to be featured or not, or if it's possible that the Boobpedia users vote freely for an article.

Reasons for this project

  • It is often heard that Boobpedia is not taken seriously, above all by Wikipedia users. We have already produced better articles than theirs - why not show them on the Main page?
  • So far the only criterion for an article to be featured on the Main page seemed to be that it includes a Boobpedia interview. It is true that such an interview may provide information that other sites do not have, but it does not excuse if the rest of an article cannot meet encyclopedic standards (which still would have to be defined for Boobpedia).
  • Showing better developed articles on the main page could improve credibility and the overall image of Boobpedia. This could attract visitors who avoided Boobpedia so far and thus increase page hits - which could help Boobpedia financially because of more clicks on affiliate links.
  • Showing articles chosen by users may inspire other users to expand existing articles and improve them, which would improve the overall quality of Boobpedia. This would be a step forward from being a mere collection of stubs about models towards articles that provide more information than other pages on the internet.

Suggestion of candidates

  • A suggested article may not be perfect or meet all the criteria for election now. But mentioning it here might help to draw the attention of other editors to articles that they did not notice before. Thus, a suggestion can help to concentrate efforts to improve it so that it meets all the criteria later.

Criteria for election

Please discuss criteria on the discussion page.

  • No article with a {{GFDL}} tag is allowed. The whole text has to be written by Boobpedia editors. No copied text from Wikipedia or other websites is allowed.
  • Articles have to have a certain length. Stubs are not allowed.
  • A long filmography may increase an article's length, but it does not make a good article.
  • A Boobpedia interview as such is not a reason for inclusion on the main page. An article containing an interview should meet the other criteria too.
  • A large picture gallery does not make a good article. Boobpedia is not a picture collection.
  • Unsourced articles are not allowed. Visitors should know where we got our information.
  • The article should have a good layout.
  • An article's topic is not limited to big bust performers. All articles are eligible, including articles on non-performers, artistic works and clothing.
  • This is not Wikipedia. We do not have as many editors as Wikipedia, and thus our quality criteria cannot (and should not) be as rigid as on Wikipedia. A model's own site is often the only source of information on her, so citations of primary sources are explicitly allowed if no other sources are available.
  • An editor can suggest his own article.
  • Election rules are to be developed, but the final decision will be made by the administrators.

Suggested articles

  • Sign your comment by adding ~~~~ which creates a signature and time stamp.

  • Could be longer. Prophecy 13:58, 4 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Thank you for the inclusion. I agree, unfortunately, information about O'Brian is sparse at best. She was not a constant entity over the course of 8 or so years. Since she is consistently misidentified due to shifting looks, this makes gathering additional info even harder. Burpman 17:22, 10 December 2008 (EST)

Comments:

  • Does not provide any sources, but I'd be happy to assist and add them if someone gives me the links. Layout could be improved a little. Prophecy 17:26, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Found two sources and worked on layout. Prophecy 10:11, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

Comments:

  • Mentions some sources, but does not have references in the text that show where which information came from. Has a dead link. Good base to work on. Perhaps I'll find something. Prophecy 00:30, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Yes, this article catches my eye too. Definitely, it needs a lot of work. It needs inline sourcing-- where does each bit of info within the article come from? Shall we agree on this one to all start looking for info to contribute & see if we can get it up to top-quality? Dekkappai 00:35, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Against: Just found that the text is a copy from Wikipedia and added a {{GFDL}} tag. We cannot leave it like this. Prophecy 01:38, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
  • I rewrote the article, so it's no longer copied from Wikipedia. So there's no {{GFDL}} tag.Apara 02:05, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Fine. Quick work! Let's see if we can further expand the article. Prophecy 02:26, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Seems to need some copy-editing. Could be longer, but information is hard to find. Needs more inline references. Prophecy 13:58, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the vote of confidence, Prophecy, but I've still got a lot of work to do on Gaston before I consider it anywhere near finished! Dekkappai 17:17, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
  • Ok, but let's keep it in this list as a candidate. Perhaps other users will find information, too. I'll put it at the end of the list for now. Prophecy 17:26, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
  • I don't know -- for one thing, he's not a busty woman... :) The Honorable 10:29, 21 September 2008 (EDT)

  • I'd like to suggest Chesty Morgan for first Featured Article. Not only is she s a true legend in the big-bust genre, very little real, verifiable information is available on her on other sites. I was able to dig up some fairly interesting information on her, I think, mostly from old newspapers. Though the article can still do with some shaping-up, I think, with Chesty's cult-following, and the lack of good information on her elsewhere, this on the main page will be good advertising for BP.

  • I agree, this article would make a great main page "lure-er". Apara 00:05, 31 December 2008 (EST)
  • Oh, wow, did not recognise this article before. Did not read it through for the moment, but I already love the overall appearance and sourcing. Nothing against having it as a featured article so far! Prophecy 08:25, 2 January 2009 (EST)
