An Article Status (AS) is a symbol to identify the status(es) of an article. Not all articles have statuses; in fact only some do. An article is given a status which fits the article; for example, a Good Article is given to an article which fits the Good Article Criteria (not the Wikipedia version).

Nominate an article

To nominate an article for an article status (except from the normal one), you have to make sure the article is decent in size and has some images. No, sources don't matter. Remember that this is a hoax-filled wiki, and sometimes it's just for fun. Follow these steps to nominate an article.

  1. Go to the article's history page and find out who the creator of the article is.
  2. Contact the creator by posting a message on their talk page and say that you wish to nominate one of their articles for one of the following: (use these templates - Template:Nomination (user talk), Template:Nomination (article talk))
4. If the creator of the article does not respond within a week, then go to the article's talk page and post a message about your nomination. Other people can then vote for or against the nomination. If the creator responds after the one-week period, then they can only vote with the people. The highest vote count wins, and if no one votes, then that means the nominator 'wins', and the article becomes one of the article statuses.
5. If you wish to demote or promote an article, then do the above steps, which are pretty much the same.
6. If your nomination is for the MPA status, then make sure that you put the {{AST}} template on the article's talk page if the nomination is successful. You do not have to put any template on the article itself, as the MPA status are only placed on an article's talk page if it is one of the MPA's.

Note: If you are the creator of the page and you wish to nominate it, then you do not have to post anything to anyone's talk page; you can simply put the GA/FA/FL/MPA template onto the article/article's talk page. Make sure you also put the {{AST}} template on the article's talk page.
