Here the community can nominate articles to be selected as “Recently’s featured article” (TFA) on the main page. The TFA section aims to highlight the range of articles that have “featured article” status, from Art and architecture through to Warfare, and wherever possible it tries to avoid similar topics appearing too close together without good reason. Requests are not the only factor in scheduling the TFA (see Choosing Recently’s Featured Article); the final decision rests with the TFA coordinators: Wehwalt, Dank and Gog the Mild, who also select TFAs for dates where no suggestions are put forward. Please confine requests to this page, and remember that community endorsement on this page does not necessarily mean the article will appear on the requested date.

  • The article must be a featured article. Editors who are not significant contributors to the article should consult regular editors of the article before nominating it for TFAR.
  • The article must not have appeared as TFA before (see the list of possibilities here), except that:
    • The TFA coordinators may choose to fill up to two slots each week with FAs that have previously been on the main page, so long as the prior appearance was at least five years ago. The coordinators will invite discussion on general selection criteria for re-runnable TFAs, and aim to make individual selections within those criteria.
    • The request must be either for a specific date within the next 30 days that has not yet been scheduled, or a non-specific date. The template {{@TFA}} can be used in a message to “ping” the coordinators through the notification system.

If you have an exceptional request that deviates from these instructions (for example, an article making a second appearance as TFA, or a “double-header”), please discuss the matter with the TFA coordinators beforehand.

It can be helpful to add the article to the pending requests template, if the desired date for the article is beyond the 30-day period. This does not guarantee selection, but does help others see what nominations may be forthcoming. Requesters should still nominate the article here during the 30-day time-frame.

How to post a new nomination:


Create the nomination subpage.

In the box below, enter the full name of the article you are nominating (without using any brackets around the article’s name) and click the button to create your nomination page.


Write the nomination.

On that nomination page, fill out as several of the relevant parts of the pre-loaded {{TFAR nom}} template as you can, then save the page.

Your nomination should mention:

  • when the last similar article was, since this helps towards diversity on the main page (browsing Wikipedia:Recently’s featured article/recent TFAs will help you find out);
  • when the article was promoted to FA status (since older articles may need extra checks);
  • and (for date-specific nominations) the article’s relevance for the requested date.

Write the blurb.

Some Featured Articles promoted between 2016 and 2020 have pre-prepared blurbs, found on the talk page of the FAC nomination (that’s the page linked from “it has been identified” at the top of the article’s talk page). If there is one, copy and paste that to the nomination, save it, and then edit as needed. For other FAs, you’re welcome to create your own TFA text as a summary of the lead section, or you can ask for assistance at WT:TFAR. We use one paragraph only, with no reference tags or alternative names; the only thing bolded is the first link to the article title. The length when previewed is between 925 and 1025 characters including spaces, ” (Full article…)” and the featured topic link if applicable. More characters may be used when no free-use image can be found. Fair use images are not allowed.


After you have created the nomination page, add it here under a level-3 heading for the preferred date (or under a free non-specific date header). To do this, add (replacing “ARTICLE TITLE” with the name of your nominated article):
===February 29===
{{Wikipedia:Recently's featured article/requests/ARTICLE TITLE}}

Nominations are ordered by requested date below the summary chart. More than one article can be nominated for the same date.

It might also then be helpful to add the nomination to the summary chart, following the examples there. Please include the name of the article that you are nominating in your edit summary.

If you are not one of the article’s primary editors, please then notify the primary editors of the TFA nomination; if primary editors are no longer active, please add a message to the article talk page.


In the absence of exceptional circumstances, TFAs are scheduled in date order, not according to how long nominations have been open or how several supportive comments they have. So, for example, January 31 will not be scheduled until January 30 has been scheduled (by TFAR nomination or otherwise).

Currently accepting requests from March 20 to April 19.

Tally may not be up to date. The nominator is included in the number of supporters.

John Littlejohn (preacher)[edit]

John Littlejohn was an American tradesman and Methodist preacher. Immigrating from Great Britain to the Thirteen Colonies when he was around 12, he traveled between various apprenticeships in Maryland and Virginia. After encountering Methodist revivalists, Littlejohn experienced a religious awakening and began preaching as an itinerant circuit rider during the Revolutionary War. Harassed by colonial authorities despite his revolutionary sympathies, Littlejohn managed to evade legal persecution and settle as a local preacher and tradesman in Leesburg, Virginia, where he variously served as a county magistrate, tax collector, and sheriff. In 1814, he was called upon in his duty as sheriff to protect the Declaration of Independence and various other important documents evacuated during the British raid on Washington. He moved to Kentucky several years later, where he entered work as a land agent after being sold falsely advertised land. He died at his home in Logan County in 1836. (Full article…)

Pinnipeds, including true seals, walruses, and sea lions and fur seals, are a widely distributed and diverse clade of semiaquatic, mostly marine mammals. There are 34 living species. They have streamlined bodies and four limbs that have evolved into flippers. Males typically mate with more than one female, and the females raise the pups, often born in the spring and summer months. Pinnipeds generally prefer colder waters and spend most of their time in the water, but come ashore to mate, give birth, molt or escape from predators such as sharks and killer whales. Humans have hunted seals since at least the Stone Age, and commercial sealing had a devastating effect on some species from the introduction of firearms through the 1960s. Populations have also been reduced or displaced by accidental trapping and marine pollution. All pinniped species are now afforded some protections under international law. (Full article…)

Royal Maundy[edit]

A Royal Maundy ceremony in 1867

A Royal Maundy ceremony in 1867

Royal Maundy (depicted) is a religious service in the Church of England held on Maundy Thursday. At the service, the British monarch or a royal official distributes small silver coins known as “Maundy money”. The name and ceremony derive from the instructions of Jesus at the Last Supper that his followers should love one another. In the Middle Ages, English monarchs washed the feet of beggars in imitation of Jesus, and presented gifts and money to the poor. The custom ended in the 18th century but returned in 1932. The service is held in a different church or cathedral every year. Recipients were once chosen for their poverty, but are now chosen for service to their churches or communities. The coin’s obverse design features the reigning monarch, while the reverse, with a crowned numeral enclosed by a wreath. In most years there are fewer than 2,000 complete sets of Maundy money; they are highly sought after by collectors. (Full article…)

  • Most recent similar article(s): Carucage, an English monetary tax, is TFA Jan 13, but this is not religious. I searched up to August 2023, but did not find a religious ceremony.
  • Main editors: Wehwalt
  • Promoted: January 13, 2011
  • Reasons for nomination: Ceremony takes place on this day in 2024. This is a TFA re-run from 2011.
  • Support as nominator. Z1720 (talk) 15:50, 12 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support looks good enough and the last time it was on TFA was over ten years ago. I also like that it will be featured on the date it occurs. ❤HistoryTheorist❤ 03:24, 16 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fallout (video game)[edit]

Tim Cain, creator

Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game is a 1997 role-playing video game developed and published by Interplay Productions. Set in a mid-22nd century post-apocalyptic world the player character is sent out of an underground nuclear shelter to find a replacement computer chip for the shelter’s water supply system. Gameplay involves interacting with other survivors and engaging in turn-based combat. Creation of Fallout started in 1994 as a game engine designed by Tim Cain based on the tabletop role-playing game GURPS, though the character customization scheme was changed after the GURPS license terminated. Fallout was a spiritual successor to the role-playing video game Wasteland (1988) and drew artistic inspiration from Atomic Age media. After its release, Fallout received critical and commercial success and has been credited for renewing consumer interest. It spawned a successful series of sequels and spin-offs, the rights to which were purchased in 2007 by Bethesda Softworks. (Full article…)
