This page is for the nomination and discussion of articles that may be potentially included in Memory Alpha's list of featured articles. Featured articles are also displayed on the main page of the wiki. A featured article is an especially well-written, informative, and comprehensive article that covers all available information on a subject.
 
 
Anyone may nominate any article for inclusion in the list of featured articles. When you nominate an article, include a short description of why you think that the article should be featured. If you are nominating an article that you have worked on, please note that fact in your description. The nomination is then open to discussion, and anyone may comment in support of or against the inclusion of the article in the list. (As always, please sign your nominations and comments with "<nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>".)
 
 
When you are commenting on a nomination, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to support or oppose the nomination. If there are no objections posted after ten days of being listed on this page, then the article may be added to the list of featured articles. If there are objections, and no consensus is reached within 20 days of the original nomination's posting, then the article is removed from the list of candidates. Optionally, a [[MediaWiki:fac|notice]] that the article has been nominated as a featured article candidate may be added to the article by inserting <nowiki>{{msg:fac}}</nowiki> at the top of the article.

===[[United Federation of Planets]]===
 
Self-nomination. An article about Federation history, government, and economy. -- [[User:MinutiaeMan|Dan Carlson]] 20:49, 16 May 2004 (CEST)
 
 
===[[Khan Noonien Singh]]===
 
Self-nomination. One of the most detailed character articles I've done so far. -- [[User:MinutiaeMan|Dan Carlson]] 20:05, 10 May 2004 (CEST)
 
 
===[[Christopher Pike]]===
 
Important character, and the most detailed article I've finished to date. It should only get better as I want to flesh out all the ''[[TOS]]:"[[The Cage]]"'' references I created in that text shortly. --[[User:Captainmike|Captainmike]] 19:47, 10 May 2004 (CEST)
 
* Seconded. One suggestion: split the main body of the text into multiple paragraphs, to make it easier to read. -- [[User:MinutiaeMan|Dan Carlson]] 20:05, 10 May 2004 (CEST)

===[[Section 31]]===
 
A well-written article covering what's probably the most controversial development in DS9 for the last two seasons. -- [[User:MinutiaeMan|Dan Carlson]] 18:40, 10 May 2004 (CEST)
 
* Seconded. A little more media would be nice though. Improves layout and provides some recognition for the not-so-fanatic fans. -- [[User:Redge|Redge]] 15:52, 13 May 2004 (CEST)

Memory Alpha  AboutPolicies and guidelinesFA policiesFA criteria → Featured article nominations

This page is for the nomination and discussion of articles that may be potentially included in Memory Alpha's list of featured articles. A featured article is an especially well-written, informative, and comprehensive article that covers all available information on a subject. If you feel one of our articles meets this criteria, you may suggest it here in accordance with the nomination policy. For a list of articles previously nominated, see the archive.

To bring up a current featured article for review, please see the review procedure.

To nominate an article, start a new discussion under "Nominations without objections" with a heading named for the article you want to suggest. Provide an appropriate picture and a two- to three-paragraph summary of the article. This is usually the article's lead-in if possible, and should not contain any links, except to the article itself. This is what will be displayed on the main page and in the portals if the nomination is successful. Followed that by a brief reason why you feel the article should be featured.

Sample format:

=== <article> ===
[[File:<image>|thumb|<caption>]]
'''[[<article>]]''' <summary>
----
<reasoning> - <signature>

Once this is done, a notice that the article has been nominated as a featured article candidate should be added to the article in question by inserting {{fan}} at the top of the page, above any other templates except the article type template.

When you are commenting on a nomination, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the nomination. Nominations with objections should be moved to the appropriate section until they are resolved.

When supporting or opposing an article, please use a bullet point (by adding a * before your comment) without any indent so these will be easy to find later. General comments should be indented as usual, and, as always, please sign your nominations and comments with "~~~~".
