Wikipedia:Featured articles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Featured articles in Wikipedia

Featured articles are considered to be the best articles Wikipedia has to offer, as determined by Wikipedia's editors. They are used by editors as examples for writing other articles. Before being listed here, articles are reviewed as featured article candidates for accuracy, neutrality, completeness, and style according to our featured article criteria. There are 3,905 featured articles out of 4,243,360 articles on the English Wikipedia. Thus, about one in 1,080 articles are listed here. Articles that no longer meet the criteria can be proposed for improvement or removal at featured article review.

A small bronze star icon (This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.) on the top right corner of an article's page indicates that the article is featured, unless the appropriate user preference is set. Additionally, if the current article is featured in another language version, a star will appear next to the language page link, in the list on the left of the page (see also featured articles in other languages).

What is a GOOD #Wikipedia article? See http://t.co/0ZTzhC5A5b to read about "featured article" status #OER #WIKISOO vis @PeteForsyth
