Featured Articles are articles that represent the best of what Grand Theft Wiki can do.

One featured article at a time is shown in the box on the Main Page, located at /current.

Featured Articles are always detailed, relevant and well-presented, with good use of images, structure and formatting. Some Featured Articles will make good use of tables, galleries and other advanced formatting features.

Process

For an article to become featured:

  1. The page should be tidied up
  2. A user should propose the page on Community talk:Featured Content
  3. An administrator will determine whether the page should be featured

If the page qualifies, the administrator will add the {{FA}} template. This will add the green "Featured" badge to the top of the page. When it is time for a new featured article to appear on the main page, an administrator will update /current to show an extract of the next featured article.
