Featured star.png

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 ProcessEdit

NominationEdit

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.

VotingEdit

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.

DecisionsEdit

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 VotesEdit

Online:Tree-Minder Na-KeshEdit

As the person nominating this article, I support this motion. It's a prime example of how an Online NPC page (particularly dungeon boss pages) should look. Her part in the related quest is summarized succinctly in the description of the article, all known and important information is present (achievements, dialogue, health values, difficulty, et. al), and, most importantly, her spells and abilities are listed and explained in full detail. The sections are neat, and the article possesses all the details necessary for understanding the fight against the tree-minder, as well as her role in the dungeon's story.

  • Support: --Unifrenchie (talk) 01:20, 21 April 2020 (GMT-6)
  • Support: Per MolagBallet. The main image is off-centre which is bugging me, but the article itself is exemplary. —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:31, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per nom. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 17:24, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Lore:Molag BalEdit

This page has undergone some major changes within the past year. The differences between the state of the article on the 11th of June, 2019 and the current revision are drastic. This page is laden with details, references and images that give a clear picture of who Molag Bal is, what he's like, and what his goals are. This page is a peak example of what a Daedric Prince's page should look like: it has detailed sections for different aspects of the Prince's involvement in history, his relationship with several other deities, elements of cult worship and a lavish description of his military and the Daedra that serve him. This article has come far since its conception. So much information from ESO was missing, and now the article is all fleshed out. We should hold it up proud as an example of a thorough article.

  • Support: As nominator. --MolagBallet (talk) 02:30, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Pretty well done. Has the history properly formatted, minion, and is how Daedric Prince pages should look like.Zebendal (talk) 06:47, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per nom. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 17:24, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Online:Moon Hunter KeepEdit

This page has sections explaining the bosses and their mechanics, as well as all the different sections of the dungeon, what's there and any mechanics present in those rooms. This article goes in-depth, and tells you everything you need to know about Moon Hunter Keep. I may be very biased in saying this, but every group dungeon page should look this way.

  • Support: As nominator. -MolagBallet (talk) 23:21, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment Support: A perfect example of what a group dungeon page should look like. It has all relevant information as well as a useful walkthrough guide, something which a lot of ESO dungeon pages lack. I am withholding my immediate support since I would like to see a Hard Mode section similar to e.g. Online:The Banished Cells I since that info is currently missing from the page. A link to Online:The Alpha Predator is fine for the walkthrough but I feel like we should be consistent with having a Hard Mode section. —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:31, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
    Edit: Took the liberty of addressing my own concerns so this is a support. —⁠Legoless (talk) 09:38, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Oblivion:Jakben Imbel's HouseEdit

This page is a favourite of mine. It kind of falls in between the scope of the OPRP and OBHRP projects since it acts as both a dungeon and a house. The page actually predates OBHRP and comes from a time before houses in Oblivion had their own individual articles. It has therefore acted as a template for a lot of those newer pages, and with good reason I think - it manages to serve as a useful walkthrough without resorting to overly verbose walls of text like a lot of house pages do. I think this is a great (and interesting) example of an Oblivion place page.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:51, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Agree with Legoless, doesn't suffer from walls of text like a lot of articles do, also has great coverage of items that can be found and lock levels. Imperialbattlespire (talk) 12:27, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per nom. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 17:24, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Agreed! It's well organized and very detailed. Everything I would expect from a good place page. --MolagBallet (talk) 18:19, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Shivering:MilcharEdit

If you've ever visited Milchar, you will know that this dungeon is intense. It is a massive sprawling complex with multiple surface entrances and lots of related quests. This article does an amazing job of turning this experience into a concise and informative dungeon page awaiting final review under OPRP. In my opinion it is a top tier Oblivion dungeon article; the maps are fantastic, it has good imagery, and the place has been thoroughly documented in its entirety. It even details the test cell XPMilchar.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:51, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per nom. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 17:24, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: A very detailed page with a walkthrough and everything! This page has everything you need to navigate the dungeon and to make sure you've looted all the fun bits and pieces. --MolagBallet (talk) 18:28, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Online:NchuthnkarstEdit

This page sprung up nearly overnight. Nchuthnkarst went from an empty stub to a complete public dungeon article over the space of about three weeks. It contains a full walkthrough with extensive imagery and a complex list of enemy types grouped by area. This dungeon has an insane amount of enemy variety so I find that table particularly impressive as far as documentation goes.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:51, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: I'm biased, but I think this is how all public dungeon pages should look. It has everything you need to know about the dungeon. -MolagBallet (talk) 01:39, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per nom. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 17:24, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: This really showcases how a lot of information and images can be displayed and not look cluttered or overwhelming. - Thuraya Salaris (talk) 22:30, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Skyrim:Simon RodayneEdit

A great little Skyrim NPC page with full in-game and technical documentation. This is a Creation Club article and I think it's a brilliant example of what needs to be done to document this new content in an older namespace. I think featuring a finished page like this would be a good way to encourage others to get involved in editing Creation Club pages.
