Featured Articles are articles the wiki's users 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. Users then review the nominees for content, style, completeness, and overall quality and place their vote.

A gallery of older Featured Articles can be found here. Similarly, the archives of previous nominations can be found here. Note that not all failed nominations are included. High-quality images can be nominated for featured status at Featured Images.

Featured Article Process

Nomination

Any registered member (once autoconfirmed) can nominate any article at any time. Nominated articles should be of high quality and meet the wiki'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.

Voting

After an article has been nominated, any registered member (once autoconfirmed) 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.

Decisions

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 or it becomes clear that there will be no consensus, even if voting is left open.

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.svg) 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

Lore:Blades

Renominating the page. It previously did not pass as it and Dragonguard were not separate pages. The issue has been addressed. The page deserves to be featured considering the overhaul it went through.

  • Support: As nominator.Zebendal (talk) 13:32, 14 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Support -Dcsg (talk) 00:09, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Not ready yet. The membership section has omissions and could use a reorganization, similar to the one on Dragonguard. Paarthurnax isn't mentioned once, nor are any of the arcane practices of the group, such as the Dragonslayer's Blessing. The Rise and Fall of the Blades mentions that Storm Talon Temple and Wind Scour Temple, 'lost' by ESO's time, were eventually used as strongholds by the Blades, which the article makes no mention of. Mindtrait0r (talk) 00:27, 21 March 2023 (UTC)
  • Support: While I preferred the Blades and Dragonguard stay the same article it still remains really good. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 05:34, 20 April 2023 (UTC)
  • Oppose for now: Very comprehensive and detailed over what is arguably the main faction in TES. However, Mindtrait0r's assessment is correct, there are major parts of this faction's history that are missing at this moment. I will absolutely be willing to support it if the remaining omissions are corrected. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 06:44, 20 December 2023 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Per Mindtrait0r and AKB. —⁠Legoless (talk) 13:41, 20 December 2023 (UTC)
  • Comment: The history of the Blades and Dragonguard are too synonymous and intertwined to justify the page split that imo should have never taken place. The Blades in Tes V prioritize what the original Dragonguard did whereas Reman's personal Dragonguard acted much like Septim's Blades. It's all just different words for the same organization that at different points in its history prioritized hunting dragons and or giving special deference to the Dragonborn. Remerge the articles and then gives the article the featured status it deserves! Dcking20 (talk) 03:48, 23 December 2023 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose: Not mentioning their ordeal with Paarthurnax is a serious gap. I'm not familiar with the Dragonguard lore, but it sounds like other history is missing. Otherwise, the page looks great. Fix the errors, and nominate it again! —Dillonn241 (talk) 22:30, 27 January 2024 (UTC)

Lore:Swims-In-Deep-Water

A good usage of FA at times is when it highlights something that doesn't often get a lot of light shone on it. We have very few other lore articles on master fisherman if any, very few Argonian pages in general and no prior featured ones to my knowledge, and also the origins of this character come from one of the actually quite high quality creations to come out of the CC era. None of this would matter of course if the article wasn't of good quality but I believe it fits that criteria too!

  • Support: As nominator. Dcking20 (talk) 00:57, 5 January 2024 (UTC)
  • Support: Give the little guys a chance. This is fairly comprehensive for a character introduced in a Creation with no newly recorded dialogue. —Dillonn241 (talk) 22:30, 27 January 2024 (UTC)
  • Support: A bit biased as the page was my idea to do (with much help from Tyranion) bit I absolutely believe theres place in Lorespace for less impressive yet still significant figures.—Tarponpet (talk) 22:03, 2 February 2024‎ (UTC)
  • Support: We need more pages like that one. Exemplary work on an important craftsman and artisan.Tyrvarion (talk) 22:27, 2 February 2024 (UTC)

Online:Molag Bal

This is about as comprehensive as a creature page can be, with an exhaustive list of notes, information on cut content, a full roster of dialogue, and detailed information regarding combat encounters. There's a lot of data behind that ugly mug, and it's covered in full with a whole host of visual content to boot. All NPCs of note should have a gamespace article as in-depth as this.

  • Support: As nominator. -MolagBallet (talk) 20:03, 27 January 2024 (UTC)
  • Neutral: This looks to be an extremely comprehensive article, and a well organized one, too. My concern lies more in the fact that Lore:Molag Bal was featured relatively recently (March 2021) in the timespan of featured articles, using the same top image. Overall, the lore coverage of Molag Bal relies mainly on ESO, so in practice the articles cover a lot of the same ground, just from different perspectives. —Dillonn241 (talk) 22:30, 27 January 2024 (UTC)
    • Reply: I know it doesn't seem like it, but March 2021 was 3 years ago, which is quite a long time. The two articles cover wildly different information, lore covers history and character info, while ESO covers fight mechanics and dialogue in-depth. They are quite different, and therefore I believe its fine to make this featured as well. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 21:01, 2 February 2024 (UTC)
  • Support: A very well-written and thorough article that's been years in the making! I've wanted this to be a Featured Article for quite some time now, and it looks great with all the information it covers about combat mechanics, notes, dialogue, quests, and so on. It would be great to have this Featured during ESO's 10th Anniversary! The Rim of the Sky (talk) 21:01, 2 February 2024 (UTC)
  • Support: One of greater npc pages for ESO. The amount of work and dedication, especially with the deprecated content is commendable.Tyrvarion (talk) 22:27, 2 February 2024 (UTC)
  • Support: It's an impressive NPC page. Like wow, it lists in-game and cut content. I understand the concern of repeating an article, but NPC pages and Lore Pages may cover the same people, they contain different sources of information.--Analeah Oaksong (talk) 06:03, 22 February 2024 (UTC)

Lore:Pelinal Whitestrake

Recently greatly improved page for a very popular lore figure, does a great job of stating many of his alleged feats without being overly biased.

  • Support: As nominator.Tarponpet (talk) 4:59 PM, Feburary 2nd, 2024 (EST)

Lore:Umaril the Unfeathered

Nominating for similar reason to Pelinal, page that was recenrly improved to be more appropriate for the major character. Also includes some obscure ESO sources that might have been overlooked otherwise
