We think the following Wikipedia pages are pretty good. This is a selected list--since there are thousands of pages on Wikipedia, we couldn't possibly keep track of all the brilliant prose here! But if you come across a particularly impressive page, why not add it to the list as your way of saying "Thanks, good job"?

Be aware that you are most likely not the best judge of your own work. Even if you think a page you have contributed a large majority of the content to is brilliant, it is best that you wait for somebody else to recognise it as such.
