Featured pages

The goal of this project is to nominate pages to be featured on the Main Page, to process these nominations and to keep track of previously featured articles.

The aspects[править]

The Featured pages project has been divided into four pieces.

  1. Nominating new articles to be featured on the Main Page.
  2. Maintaining the text of the article preview for the Main Page.
  3. Maintaining the quality of the featured article line-up and removing those which fall out of quality.
  4. Determining the line up of articles whenever a new article is accepted.

The procedure[править]

Nominating articles[править]

To nominate a page to be featured on the Main Page, add it to the nominated pages section on this page. When nominating pages, please consider if the page you are nominating is good enough to be featured on the Main Page. When nominating a page please put this: {{feature}} tag at the top of the page so people visiting the page know. If you do not believe the article is good enough, please refrain from nominating it and work on improving it instead. Nominated articles should be discussed on this page. When consensus has been reached in favor of the article, the section with the discussion about that article should be moved to the accepted pages section, and a time stamp displaying when the article has been accepted should be added. If an article has been rejected by the community, it should be placed into Rejected pages. Articles should be moved into their respective sections (accepted/rejected) when there has not been comments about it for a month or longer.

Discussions of articles rejected should be moved to the latest or a new rejected pages archive (listed at the top of the Rejected pages section) after one week from being rejected. When articles are featured, the discussion of the article should be stamped with a new time stamp and moved to the latest or a new featured article archive (listed at the top of the Accepted articles section).

Accepted articles will be featured (in order of earliest acceptances) when the current article's feature time has run out, unless otherwise noted. Featured articles will remain on the main page for two weeks and are to be changed out on Mondays. When articles are featured for the first time, they are to be tagged with {{Featured article}}.

There is only one requirement for featured pages, and that is no maintenance tags (that includes and is not limited to: dispute, merge, move, stubs, cleanup, rewrite, deletion, or any other tag that requires work on the article). Once all maintenance tags are dealt with and removed, the article can be considered for being featured. Whether an article will be featured or not, is based solely on consensus in the discussion on this page.

Choosing the order[править]

The order of the featured articles are important as placing too many like-minded articles together can become boring for readers. As such, deciding the order of articles is necessary, even if a small task. When an article is accepted, its placement must be decided. There's no need for a discussion on this, as long as the placement isn't near too many like-minded articles it'll be fine.

Festival themed articles are to be kept out of the normal ordering and replace whatever article is being featured when the main page becomes decorated with the festival theme. When the decorations are removed, the order shall resume.

Proposing text change[править]

When an article is to be featured for the first time, the preview text must be created. This will happen at Main_Page/featured_article/next, not here. Preview text is usually the first two non-quotation paragraphs of an article, but this is not always the case.

If an article which has been featured has been rewritten or typos/incorrect information in the old preview text has occurred, new text can be proposed in the preview text section. If old preview text is disliked, new preview text can be proposed here for the article's next featuring. Preview text is to be written outside of one's comment and can be edited by anyone. If a preview text suggestion is accepted, it will replace the text found here and the discussion archived; if a preview text suggestion is rejected, the text is removed and the discussion is archived.
