Wikipedia:Vital articles

Vital articles are lists of subjects for which the English Wikipedia should have corresponding featured-class articles. They serve as centralized watchlists to track the quality status of Wikipedia's most important articles and to give editors guidance on which articles to prioritize for improvement. The very most important articles are in Level 1.

This page constitutes Level 3 of the vital articles list and includes 1,000 articles. All articles from higher levels are also included in lower levels. For example, all 100 subjects on the Level 2 list (shown on this page in bold font) are included here in Level 3. And the Level 2 list also includes the 10 subjects on Level 1 (shown on this page in bold italics). A larger Level 4 list of 10,000 articles also exists, and a Level 5 list of 50,000 articles is in the process of being created.

This list is tailored to the English-language Wikipedia. There is also a list of one thousand articles considered vital to Wikipedias of all languages, as well as Vital Article lists tailored to different Wikipedia languages accessible via the languages sidebar.

Articles should not be added or removed from this list without a consensus on the talk page. For more information on this list and the process for adding or removing articles, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
