Here, we determine which articles are to be featured articles (FAs). The Featured articles of the wiki are articles that represent the best Brickipedia has to offer. This is not a way to showcase the articles of your favourite themes, minifigures, etc. or to get praise for your "hard work" on an article.

A featured article must...

  1. ...follow the Manual of Style in all aspects.
  2. ...have at least one well-written original paragraph describing what the article is about.
  3. ...have a concise lead section that summarizes the topic and prepares the reader for the detail in the subsequent sections.
  4. ...have several relevant section headings and considerable content (continuous text) in the respective sections.
  5. ...be complete in a way so that it does not neglect any major facts or details and constitutes a detailed description/overview/presentation of the subject in question.
  6. ...have its infoboxes filled out completely, or as best as potentially possible.
  7. ...be unbiased and written from a neutral point of view.
  8. ...contain several relevant images, apart from the one in the infobox, that are placed within the text, in addition to pictures in a gallery.
  9. ...not be tagged with improvement messages, since the FA should already comply with the MoS and be both complete and neutral.
  10. ...not be about an as yet unreleased set, minifigure or theme.

How to nominate:

  1. First, nominate an article you find is worthy of featured status, putting it at the bottom of the list below; see criteria above.
  2. Others will object to the nomination if they disagree that the article is good enough; they will then supply reasons for doing so, and ways to improve the article (errors, style, organization, images, notability, sources).
  3. Supporters adjust the article until the objectors (with reasonable objections) are satisfied.
    1. All objections must be specific enough that they can be fixable. Saying "this doesn't stand out to me", "I don't think this should be an FA", or "Not good enough" are invalid objections. Forum where decision was made.
  4. The article is placed on the featured article list and added to the front page queue.
  5. Also, if, at least a week after the article's nomination, that article has 5 supports and no objections (or the objections have been stricken or overridden), it will be added the queue, and will be officially known as a "featured article".
Use the following code for a nomination:

== [[<article>]] ==

How to vote:

  1. Before doing anything, be sure to read the article completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterwards, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or object the article's nomination.
    1. If you object, please supply concrete reasons for doing so, and how it can be improved. Please cite which rule your objection falls under! Failure to do so will result in your objection being considered invalid.
    2. Either way, update the vote count in the section header, add +1 when you support the article, add -1 when you object.
    3. (QCG members only): If you find that this article does not comply with the Manual of Style, list the reasons why under "Technical MoS Check (QCG members only)", and sign your name along with Crown Knights ({{RG}}).
  3. As stated above, any objections will be looked upon by the nominator, supporters, and anyone willing to improve the article, and action will be taken to please the objectors.
  4. If after one week, if an article has a total of five votes, the ratio of supporting votes to opposing votes is 70%, and if there is nothing listed under the Manual of Style check heading by a QCG member, the nomination is approved. However, if after one month, any of these criteria are not met, the nomination is to be removed. The original nominator may also remove any of his nominations if he/she sees fit.
  5. No nominator may vote for their own nominations.

Also remember to add {{FANom}} at the top of the article you are nominating.

Every month the next article in the queue will be highlighted on the Main Page as featured, marked with the {{featured}} template and removed from the list of nominations. The beginning of the article then appears on the Main Page via the {{featured article}} template. Nominees that are inactive for a month will be eliminated from the nominations list.
