Not to be confused with User of the Month or Requests for adminship.

Articles of the Month (AOTM) or Featured articles are articles that are so good that they should be featured on the Main Page. Doing so will cause many people to notice that article, as the Main Page is the first thing people see when they visit the site.


Articles must meet certain criteria. If it does not, then it cannot be featured.

The articleEdit

  • The article is in the ARTICLE namespace (also known as the mainspace). It cannot be a project page (Stellar Dawn Wiki:), a template (Template:), a category (Category:), a user page (User:), a file (Image:), a discussion page (Talk: or User/Template/MediaWiki/Stellar Dawn talk:), or a software page (MediaWiki:). It also cannot be the main page itself. We may eventually add a featured image to the main page. Any invalid nominations will be deleted.
  • The article is well written and informative.
  • The article follows the style guide.
  • The article's pictures look nice and are not scarce.
  • Overall, the article looks nice and is easy to read.


  • The nominator's vote is included in the "Support" section.
  • Nomination starts the month prior to the designated featured article month (for August, nomination is in July).
  • You cannot declare an article as an article of the month until the day before the month is over.
