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.
This month's featured article
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. Most often, the opener is copied directly off the article itself, but it is not required, as such, an editor can make an entirely new opener for the article. The most important part is that it properly introduces the article.
Below is this month's Featured article:
A religion, school of thought and magical format born in the early 20th century, Thelema is heavily influenced by Aleister's desire to find the proper rules and answers that the god who created the world could not in order to make the world a better place, as well as his journey to Egypt and his contact with the entity known as Aiwass. The concepts and secrets which Aleister learned and devised are recorded in Thelema's central tenet, the infamous grimoire known as the Book of the Law.
Thelema is comprised of both original concepts and adapted aspects from various sources, a mix of existing methods intended to break through known limits and reach a new stage beyond. A key concept is that of the Aeons, divisions of history named after Egyptian deities, which chart the history of mankind from the time of primitive religions to the rise of Christianity and onto a true awakening after its fall with the Aeon of Horus, a journey reflected in the Thoth Tarot. Another key concept is that of True Will.
During Aleister's time with the Golden Dawn, a number of his Thelemic concepts were considered extreme even by the cabal's standards. After severing ties with the golden cabal, Aleister continued his work on Thelema, and in the present day, it forms a key part of Aleister's Plan with Academy City.
