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] Dragonborn:Ralis Sedarys

This article is very well-written in my humble opinion.

  • Support: As nominator. DG#:) 17:07, 10 December 2014 (GMT)
  • Support: Looks good to me. -- RNM|T 19:43, 10 December 2014 (GMT)
  • Oppose: The dialogue could due with being divided up a bit more. This could be done by dividing it up into subsections and using other innovations (if you have multiple options to choose from in dialogue, his responses to each option could be displayed in a table or at least not just in a paragraph for example). The recently nominated Sinding page benefited from such suggestions in its nomination in my opinion, albeit it wasn't enough for it to be supported. Aside from this, the page seems to lack a schedule for this character, though this may not be relevant (I'm not knowledgeable about Dragonborn so I don't really know this NPC's behavior). Forfeit (talk) 22:36, 10 December 2014 (GMT)
    • Comment: Your assumptions are correct. A schedule is not relevant here. —MortenOSlash (talk) 23:19, 10 December 2014 (GMT)
  • Oppose:I agree that the dialogue needs to be used in a manner to help break up the text and show it with each option and the replies available. Biffa (talk) 23:40, 11 December 2014 (GMT)
    • Comment: And why should the dialogue get changed may I ask? Lots of other pages don't have a concept of showing dialogue with each option and the replies available. For example Skyrim:Jaree-Ra doesn't use this concept. DG#:) 08:18, 12 December 2014 (GMT)
    • Comment: I did try and break up the text with the dialogue when I started revamping it, but it got changed. DG#:) 08:20, 12 December 2014 (GMT)
  • Oppose: Per Forfeit and Biffa, some of the dialogue could use different formatting to make the page look less repetitive. You could use quotes from his dialogue or from his writings to help break up the text. (See Oblivion:Mathieu Bellamont for an example.) The article is incomplete as well, as it's missing follower dialogue and mentions of his letters and journal. I will gladly change my vote once these problems are addressed. —<({QT>> 11:13, 12 December 2014 (GMT)
    • Comment:Jaree-Ra's page is a poor example as sections of his dialogue have been formatted differently to help break up the wall of text AND it wouldn't get my vote for FA support either. Overall I think it's a really good article that could with tweaks get the support you're looking for. The reason I mentioned the dialogue was the layout as it is was the main reason I voted to oppose and wanted to give reason/suggest what could be done to make it worthy of FA status IMO. If you look at the other two mentioned NPC pages not all the dialogue is formatted any different to the way you've laid it out, however sections of it has and it has massively improved the readability and appearance of those pages.
