They are used as examples and guidelines on how articles are written in this wiki. Although, there is still no exact basis on how articles can become featured, other than the Manual of Style, a featured article has most of these things (based off Wikipedia's Featured article critera):
- Well written
- Not subject to massive changes or edit wars
- It is properly structured
- It is uses consistent citations, references and footnotes
- A suitable amount of images, with appropriate captions and thumbnail sizes.
- It is suitable in length and properly summarized.
Once an article is nominated for being a featured article, it will be voted by editors and contributors if they see the article fit for being a featured article. Afterwards, a golden pentagram, a magic array, will be on top right corner of an article's page that would indicate that the article is featured.
The opening paragraph and a picture would be written (and would similarly, put into an archive) for the article in the This month's featured article, as can be seen below, which is regularly edited each month for the sake of a new featured article.
For nominations go to the Featured article candidates page. This page displays a list of articles that are currently featured.

Each month the wiki chooses an article to be featured on the main page of the wiki, at which point, they are required to make an opening line for the article.

The most important part is that it properly introduces the article.
