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:
The Battle of Blythe Road was a key event in the collapse of the Golden Dawn. Considered a crucial but quiet turning point of history by magic researchers, it occurred in April 1900, at 36 Blythe Road, Hammersmith, London, the site of the cabal's most important ceremonial ground and armory.
The instigator was Aleister Crowley, who was trying to avert his future daughter's death, caused by a phenomena which the Golden Dawn's activities were contributing to. After attacking Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers for a sample of his blood and using it to forge a document with his orders, Aleister stormed 36 Blythe Road and occupied the building, as well as taking several key items from the armory.
This sparked a war between the Mathers and Westcott factions of the Golden Dawn, one which Aleister exploited in order to destroy the cabal and curse its members, dooming them to die or live a life of failure.
