2020 and Wikipedia's Featured Article Review Process


Community Initiatives

Type of session:

Lightning talk


In 2020, English Wikipedia editors started URFA/2020, an initiative to assess Wikipedia's older featured articles. This talk will share the goals of the initiative, how it works, and criticisms that have been levied against it. It will also describe English Wikipedia's Featured Article Review process and how editors can work to "save" an article's featured status.
