Featured articles are articles which represent the best that Horizon Fleet Wiki has to offer. Featured articles are supposed to be examples of Horizon Fleet Wiki's best work, and are showcased on the main page. They are especially well-written, informative, and comprehensive articles that cover all available information on a subject.

Note: A featured article should not be used as a way to showcase the articles of your favorite characters or ships

So what criteria must a featured article meet before it can be nominated?


An article must...

  • be well written
  • be comprehensive (as detailed and complete as possible)
  • be unbiased and encyclopaedic in style (non-point of view)
  • be undisputed and stable (not be the object of any ongoing edit wars or tagged with any improvement tags)
  • have a succinct proper lead that can be used for the main page featured box
  • have a reasonable amount of red links, if any at all
  • not have been previously featured

For more information on what makes a featured article, see Wikipedia:What is a featured article.


How to nominate:

  1. To nominate an article you find is worthy of featured status, add it to the bottom of the list below "Featured article nominations" using the template provided; see criteria above for what constitutes a featured article. If you are nominating an article that you have created or that you have worked on, please note that the nomination is a self-nomination.
  2. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is good enough; they will then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article (errors, style, organization, images, notability, sources).
  3. Supporters adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied.
  4. The article is placed on the featured article list and added to the front page queue.
  5. Once an article has been nominated for a minimum of one week, and has 3 supports and no objections, it will be added to the queue, and will be officially known as a "featured article"

Sample format:

=== [[Article Name]] ===
[[File:image.jpg|thumb|left|150px]] '''Nominated by:''' --~~~~
{{clear}}

How to vote:

  1. When you are commenting on a nomination, please be sure to take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the nomination, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterwards, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination, using the template responses below.
  3. If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved.
  4. As stated above, any objections will be looked upon by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to please the objectors.
  5. Once all objectors' complaints have been solved (or the article has 3 supports and no objections after at least a week), the article will be added to the queue and be officially known as a "featured article".

Showing support or objecting:

* '''Strong Support''' - A comment/reasoning behind why you are showing strong support --~~~~
* '''Support''' - A comment/reasoning behind why you are showing support --~~~~
* '''Weak Support''' - A comment/reasoning behind why you are showing weak support --~~~~
* '''Strong Object''' - A comment/reasoning behind why you are strongly objecting --~~~~
* '''Object''' - A comment/reasoning behind why you are objecting --~~~~
* '''Weak Object''' - A comment/reasoning behind why you are weakly objecting --~~~~

Also remember to add {{Nominated}} at the top of the article you are nominating.

Every quarter the next article in the queue will be highlighted on the Main Page as featured, marked with the featured article icon and removed from the list of nominations. The beginning of the article then appears on the Main Page via the {{Featured article}} template. Nominees that are inactive for a month can be eliminated from the nominations list.
