Featured articles are articles the site's editors deem to be of the highest quality and should be held up as an example for other articles. Articles are nominated for this status below. The site's editors then review the nominees for content, style, completeness, and overall quality and place their vote. High quality images can be nominated for featured status at Featured Images.

Archives of previous nominations can be found here.

[edit] Featured Article Process

[edit] Nomination

Any registered member can nominate any article at any time. Nominated articles should be of high quality and meet the site's style guidelines. They will frequently be recently completed articles or articles that have just undergone a substantial rewrite, but older articles are also suitable candidates.

To nominate an article, list it on the bottom of this page with a three-tier heading, (===Example===), and briefly explain why you think the article should be given featured status.

[edit] Voting

After an article has been nominated, any registered member can vote to support or oppose each nomination. Each member can only vote once for a given article, but a member may change his/her vote by striking out the original vote and replacing it with the revised vote.

To vote on an article, state whether you support or oppose the article for featured article status. A vote should be in bold, and all votes must be signed. For example:
* '''Support''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Oppose''': <Comment> --~~~~

Commenting with your vote is optional, but if you oppose a nomination, please state how the article must be improved to get your support for featured status.

If you are not yet ready to vote but would still like to add your thoughts, you may use:

* '''Comment''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Question''': <Question> --~~~~

And fill in your concerns or questions.

[edit] Decisions

UESP Administrators will periodically make decisions on article nominations. Decisions will only be made if:

  • The article has been nominated for more than seven days.
  • Five or more votes have been placed.
  • A clear consensus has been reached (either supported or opposed for featured status).

Nominations not meeting these criteria will be left open until a decision can be reached.

Articles whose nominations pass will receive featured article status on the front page for at least one month and receive a small bronze star (Featured star.png) on the top right corner. If an article achieves featured status before the present featured article's month expires, it must wait its turn.

[edit] Nominations and Votes

[edit] Lore:Potema

Huh... I seem to remember Krusty asking me to turn this article into a full page in IRC a long time ago, though I was in that stretch of time where I didn't seem motivated by anything and didn't do much wiki-ing. In any case, here's a fabulous article, which judging from the history, was created by Minor Edits... Handled a good six months after I should have done it. Anyway, this is a nice, well detailed and researched article about the Wolf Queen of Solitude. I'm not feeling so verbose right now, so just vote already!

  • Support: -damon  talkcontribs 02:43, 22 March 2014 (GMT)
  • Neutral: Needs events of Skyrim included before complete. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 13:32, 22 March 2014 (GMT)
    • Comment: I'm pretty sure they are included in the Legacy section. Or is there more to it? --Roger (talk) 13:41, 22 March 2014 (GMT)
  • Comment: You're right, somehow I missed that when I was reading the article. Changing to support. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 13:56, 22 March 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: A fine lore article on one of the most interesting ES characters out there. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 13:56, 22 March 2014 (GMT)
  • Comment: I fixed a couple oversights; I'm confident the article incorporates all pertinent information, though I glossed over many details from The Wolf Queen. I'm reticent to rely heavily on in-game historical fiction. Since this has proven to be a fault in the past, I encourage people to peruse TWQ and see if there's anything else in there you think is worth mentioning.

  • Support: Good lore article on an interesting subject. I think this would fit well on the main page. Forfeit (talk) 17:55, 12 April 2014 (GMT)
