This page contains instructions on how to make and use features. To nominate an article to become a featured article, use Pikmin:Featured articles/nominations.

Changing the featured article

The featured article text is located at Template:Feature. Edit this template to change the featured article. You must:

  • Add the Featured template to the top of the main article of the new feature, including the date, in the form {{featured|date}}.
  • Update the previous featured article to have the end date in the "featured" template, in the form {{featured|start date|end date}}. Move this to the bottom of the page, but keep it above any footer.
  • Update the Previous featured articles section of this page.
  • Move the nomination on the nominations page to the archive.

Featured articles should be articles that are complete in content, well written, and are interesting enough to be put on the front page. Copy the introductory few paragraphs from the article and an image if at all possible.

Weekly rotation

When the featured articles are on a weekly rotation, the following applies. There is one template which holds the data for which articles show for each day of the week. In order to rotate the articles edit the template below. Articles should be rotated weekly.
