Featured articles are articles the site's editors deem to be of the highest quality and should be held up as an example for other articles. Articles are nominated for this status below. The site's editors then review the nominees for content, style, completeness, and overall quality and place their vote. High quality images can be nominated for featured status at Featured Images.

Previous nominations are archived here.

Featured Article Process[edit]


Any registered member can nominate any article at any time. Nominated articles should be of high quality and meet the site's style guidelines. They will frequently be recently completed articles or articles that have just undergone a substantial rewrite, but older articles are also suitable candidates.

To nominate an article, list it on the bottom of this page with a three-tier heading, (===Example===), and briefly explain why you think the article should be given featured status.


After an article has been nominated, any registered member can vote to support or oppose each nomination. Each member can only vote once for a given article, but a member may change his/her vote by striking out the original vote and replacing it with the revised vote.

To vote on an article, state whether you support or oppose the article for featured article status. A vote should be in bold, and all votes must be signed. For example:
* '''Support''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Oppose''': <Comment> --~~~~

Commenting with your vote is optional, but if you oppose a nomination, please state how the article must be improved to get your support for featured status.

If you are not yet ready to vote but would still like to add your thoughts, you may use:

* '''Comment''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Question''': <Question> --~~~~

And fill in your concerns or questions.


UESP Administrators will periodically make decisions on article nominations. Decisions will only be made if:

  • The article has been nominated for more than seven days.
  • Five or more votes have been placed.
  • A clear consensus has been reached (either supported or opposed for featured status).

Nominations not meeting these criteria will be left open until a decision can be reached.

Articles whose nominations pass will receive featured article status on the front page for at least two weeks and receive a small bronze star (Featured star.png) on the top right corner. If an article achieves featured status before the present featured article's two weeks expire, it must wait its turn.

Nominations and Votes[edit]

Skyrim:Myrwatch (place)[edit]

A great Skyrim place page which thoroughly documents the location; all the more remarkable considering the location was only added to the game under two months ago. This article covers all aspects of the house, including new functions like the All Forge. It has an extensive gallery, showing off the interior and the completed item collections. Featuring it would also be a good way to show off our coverage of the Creation Club content, a project which doesn't have very many editors at present.

  • Support: As nominator. —Legoless (talk) 23:28, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: Considering that I wrote most of it and took some of the screenshots (Legoless took the rest), obvious support from me. Good to have something from Creation Club featured as well. —Dillonn241 (talk) 23:31, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Shouldn't this page be beholden to the UESPWiki:Skyrim Houses Redesign Project? Of course, when the project was created the Creation Club didn't exist - but that doesn't necessarily excuse this page from being held to the same rigorous standards. As far as I know, this page hasn't been checked in the same way older SR pages were. Even if this page is being excluded from the project, there are currently 3 bugs that remain unconfirmed, so I can't really support the page yet. --Jimeee (talk) 01:25, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose: I agree with Jimeee that it should be under the scope of our existing project. After its examined to that standard, I see this as a strong candidate. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 06:18, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose: I would really like to see something from the Creation Club featured on the front page, but it would be pretty silly to put it out there while it still has that template stamped on the top of the page. It definitely needs to go through the review process before it can be featured. However, if we want to push Creation Club content, I wouldn't oppose a Featured Image nomination for one of the screenshots as the majority of them are very eye-catching.--Rook (talk) 01:58, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Online:Vakka-Bok Xanmeer[edit]

A great example of a detailed place article. Complete with maps, npcs, and related quests. Whats not to enjoy from a article like this?

  • Support: As nominator. —Zebendal (talk)
  • Comment: I would like to support, but the page could use some formatting. The maps would be a lot more useful moved into their relevant sections. Also, the Denizens sections aren't that great looking. Perhaps change these to one or two sentences instead? If they are kept as lists, something needs to be done so they don't wrap around the images so oddly. —Dillonn241 (talk) 02:17, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Without wanting to comment on whether they should or shouldn't actually be lists, I've at least fixed the formatting of the existing lists. It's a widespread problem that I haven't yet found a purely CSS solution for (nor has anyone at Wikipedia/MediaWiki), so in the meantime, there's the {{ListFix}} template. Robin Hood  (talk) 04:03, 14 March 2019 (UTC)


With the recent expansion by Vincentius and the cleanup by Croaker, this page is looking very nice in appearance and complete in content. It provides a thorough overview of the city's history, with coverage for ESO, Arena, Skyrim, and a few periods in between from lore. The layout section summarizes all of the important features, including some names I hadn't heard of before for a mountain range (Ysgramor's Teeth) and the city districts.

  • Support: As nominator. —Dillonn241 (talk) 02:17, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment: I would like to see the ESO references specified. The using of "ESO events" should be minimal, esp. if we actually know where exactly the reference comes from. Tib (talk) 06:56, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
    • I pecked at those sections some more and they should be in order now. I opted to keep "ESO events" as a source for the damage that Sinmur inflicts on Riften because that damage is baked into the game and visible even if you don't touch the Rift's questline. Croaker (talk) 08:10, 14 March 2019 (UTC)


It is my great honor to propose Rock as a candidate for April 1st, 2019's Featured Article. This page has it all. It's clean, it has all you need to know about Rock written on it, and it is truly the epitome of the Online namespace. Rock is clean, concise, and detailed... Rock. This is truly what peak performance looks like.

  • Support: As nominator.MolagBallet (talk) 20:50, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Conditional Support: A discussion must first be had about the proposed merger with Online:Traps. —Legoless (talk) 22:46, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose: The page is being proposed to be moved to a subsection on a larger page. I see the attempt at humor here, but unless there's a compelling reason to keep it on its own subpage, the Traps page seems like the best place for it to be. As it is, most of the body of the article and the bottom note message is already there, so it seems like the better place for it to be and the redirect is most appropriate in my opinion. That makes this not worth being its own featured article, because it's likely to no longer be its own article. -damon  talkcontribs 22:50, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose: I don't think we should be using Featured Articles for April Fools. The fact that this was considered for April Fools is evidence of how pointless and ridiculous that page is. Since the suggested merge page is nowhere near done, and was not nominated, oppose. If this somehow passes, then I suggest it be accepted with the conditions that it does not get a star and does not get added to the list of past featured articles. —Dillonn241 (talk) 22:53, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment:I agree with the people above that this page should be merged with the Traps page. However, I do like the idea for it as a one day featured article for April 1. We shouldn't be so serious about this for that specific day. The strict protocols for page creations should not apply as strongly for a April 1 joke. --Ilaro (talk) 23:23, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Strong Support: Never have I seen an article so thorough and exquisite, do detailed and mesmerizing, so bold and revolutionary—truly, if any article is deserving of a featured status, it's this one. Anyone who says otherwise clearly doesn't have taste and flat out hates fun in all its forms. Not a bad April Fools article. However, I do think a good alternative would be to create a page just for the Pebble Pal pet, try out a template, and have it be featured. Either one could work well. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 23:42, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support: Are we really going be such sticklers that we'd pass up a perfectly good April Fools joke? The page will be gone soon anyway, seeing as it obviously needs to be merged with Online:Traps, which has been the procedure for all other traps throughout the other games. Especially if we take Dillonn's suggestion, I don't see any reason why this shouldn't go through. If anything, considering that there are unresolved votes dating back to last year and that there have been more replies to this suggestion than to any of the other serious nominations, it might at least spur some more interest in participation in the Featured Article / Featured Image process.--Rook (talk) 00:53, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment: As April 1, 2019 came and went, this vote to determine whether to present Rock as the FA for that day is now moot. Croaker (talk) 04:25, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
