The Avatar Wiki Standards Council is the group of users responsible for maintaining the quality standards of Avatar Wiki articles. This group organizes articles into classes of quality.

To ensure that the Standards Council is made up of editors and writers of the highest quality who remain active contributors to the site, the positions available are elected by the community. The group will be comprised of maximum 5 members.

Elections are currently CLOSED.

Current Council members:

Procedure

  1. Anyone may nominate an article to be promoted to B-Class or A-Class by posting a link to the article. The proposer must support their suggestion(s) with a sensible reason for the promotion nomination for said class.
  2. A Council member will assess the nomination and reasoning provided and decide whether the article should be moved to consideration.
    • If the nomination is rejected, the Council member will provide a thorough reasoning with pointers on what should be improved before the article is eligible for at least B-Class. After a waiting period of 1 month to allow for the improvement of the article by the community, the rejected article can be reconsidered for promotion.
    • If the nomination is accepted, the Council member moves the article to be considered for promotion to the class deemed most appropriate for the article. This class can be different than the one stated in the nomination. If an article nominated for A-Class is only considered sufficient for promotion to B-Class, a specific reason should be given. The Council member does not have to state their opinion on promotion when moving the article to consideration.
  3. The article is considered for promotion by the Standards Council over a 2 month period.
    • If within two months at least a simple majority of Council members are in agreement on accepting or rejecting promotion, the article is promoted/rejected accordingly.
    • If after two months not all the members have voiced their opinion, promotion is considered based on a majority among those who voted. In the case of a draw, promotion is rejected.
    • If no member gives their opinion within two months, the article is promoted.
  4. If an article is rejected for promotion, a thorough reasoning should again be provided. After a waiting period of 7 days to allow for the suggested improvements to be carried out by the community, the rejected article can be reconsidered for promotion.

A-class articles

Article nominations

Fire Army

Before splitting off the "Fire Army", the army section of the military of the Fire Nation article was already quite extensive and well-written. After creating a separate article for the Fire Army, updating the text with infos from the Kyoshi novels and comics, and some tidying (including adding missing references), I think that it is good enough for A-class status.

Support Nomination accepted — This section was definitely already at a high quality before it was split into its own article. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 14:40, September 8, 2020 (UTC)

Jianzhu

I think that this article shaped up quite nicely, and has been expanded to such a degree that it covers most of the information we currently have about Jianzhu. From what I can tell, it is probably complete enough and written well enough to be promoted. What do you think? DyingFlameTsui (wallcontribs) 09:32, June 24, 2020 (UTC)

Support Nomination accepted — Definitely at the point that promotion can be considered. HAMMEROFTHØR (wall) • 10:48, July 1, 2020 (UTC)

  1. Support Support — I am astonished by the high level of quality in the article, and like the fact that it is well referenced as well. I think we can truly say the wiki did the main villain justice here. Tono555 @fandom Korra-chao2 19:36, July 22, 2020 (UTC)

Rangi

After this article was put under editing project, I believe it has been upgraded enough to consider promotion to a higher class. It contains as much information as there is available for Rangi in the novel, it is well redacted and clear, and it is probably one of the most complete articles we have of the book. Sadly, there are no more images to add. Dcasawang1wall 21:25, April 17, 2020 (UTC)

Support Nomination accepted — There are still some improvements that I think can be made to the article, but it has been well expanded to include, as I can recall, all relevant information and edited to a sufficient quality to be considered for promotion to A-class.

  1. Support Support — I agree with HammerOfThor. Though some details can still be added, the article is in a good enough shape. DyingFlameTsui (wallcontribs) 20:35, April 18, 2020 (UTC)
  2. Support Support — I definitely believe the article is worthy of being A-class. It has the most images it could possibly have, it's well referenced, and it's also written in a very professional manner. Tono555 @fandom Korra-chao2 14:36, April 29, 2020 (UTC)
