A good article nomination (GAN) is an article that is to be evaluated against the good article criteria in order to become a good article (GA). The standard of quality for good articles is less than that for featured articles. Here is the complete list of good article nominations: there are currently 607 nominations listed, of which 444 are waiting to be reviewed.
Anyone may nominate an article, and any uninvolved and registered user with sufficient knowledge and experience with Wikipedia content policies may review an article nominated at this page against the good article criteria. A responsive nominator and reviewer can complete a review in about seven days. Nominators should respond positively to constructive criticism and work with the reviewer to improve the article (if there are any issues) to good article status. If the article is promoted, a small plus sign inside a circle () will appear on the top right corner of the article's page indicating that the article is good.
This includes computer-related businesses and businesspeople, cryptography, engineers and inventors, engineering technology, engineering failures and disasters, hardware, standards and protocols, programming, software, websites, and the Internet.
Note: It feels awkward submitting a GAN without reviewing a couple GANs first, but it feels awkward doing that without having experienced it for myself, so I will simply cut the Gordian knot and nominate this. jp×g 18:44, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Note: Disclosure: Back in 2011 I wrote this article for de.wikipedia, where it ranked fifth in the writing contest and was given exzellent (featured) status. User:Zarasophos translated it into English in 2018 and last fall I corrected several tiny things in the translation. I'm not familiar with the procedures and expectations for good article status in this wiki, this article could be placed in at least four different categories, but I guess the nomination should be acceptable. This article is based on the literature I could find and read back in 2011. There is certainly still room for improvement, as Russian, Turkic and Persian literature were not really considered and as access to electronic literature has improved since then. However, I'm confident that the article ain't bad. If there are questions, please ping me. → «« Man77 »» 11:53, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
