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

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

Pages which are accepted by the community as very good pages have their {{pvgood}} tag replaced with {{vgood}}. They are also listed on Wikiquote:Very good pages and are placed in Category:Very good pages.



Note: Currently, for the first few days, the articles will be selected by voting for 3 days. This will be changed later. Generally, all pages with 80% or more support pass and those below are failed. Minimum of 3 votes required.

The Fellowship of the Ring

Sufficiently long, lead sourced and simple. Pmlineditor  11:44, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

John Quincy Adams

One of our best pages in my opinion. Written a while ago by PeterSymonds. –Juliancolton | Talk 01:27, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Yes check.svgY Promoted. Yotcmdr (talk) 13:58, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

    That's better, but the citations still need to be correctly formatted –Juliancolton | Talk 21:14, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
    Think that's done too, unless you've other issues? PmlineditorTalk 15:25, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
    I'm concerned that QuotesDaddy isn't a reliable source either. Ideally, articles should be sourced only to books/newspapers/other reliable sources rather than self-published quote websites. –Juliancolton | Talk 15:46, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
    I got a book source. PmlineditorTalk 08:07, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
