Today's featured list

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

On Mondays and Fridays, the Main Page includes a section where an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the main page are scheduled by the featured list director Giants2008.

To appear on the main page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see Wikipedia:Featured list candidates, and the featured list criteria. In addition to being featured, a main page blurb must be drafted, which introduces the subject of the list. Main page blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in total length, with no endlines, reference tags, alternate names, or extraneous bolding, although the link to the specified featured list should be bolded. You can submit a list at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/submissions.

At the moment, lists are scheduled by the FL director or the FL delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming main-page featured list, please leave a message talkpage here.

Further ideas on how you can participate can be found at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/get involved.

Manisha Koirala
Manisha Koirala

Nepali actress Manisha Koirala is known for her work in Bollywood films. Koirala's acting debut was in the Nepali film Pheri Bhetaula (1989). Two years later, she made her Bollywood debut in Subhash Ghai's Saudagar, which was a commercial success. However, she followed this by appearing in a series of films which performed poorly at the box office. Koirala's career had a turnaround when she starred as the daughter of a freedom fighter in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 1942: A Love Story (1994). The following year, Koirala received the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress, and the Filmfare Award for Best Actress – Tamil for playing a Muslim married to a Hindu during the 1992–1993 Bombay riots in the Mani Ratnam-directed Tamil drama Bombay (1995). For playing the daughter of a mute and deaf couple in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Khamoshi: The Musical (1996), Koirala garnered a second consecutive Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress. She followed this with leading roles in Agni Sakshi (1996) and Gupt: The Hidden Truth (1997), which were among the highest-grossing Indian films of their respective years. (Full list...)

Barry Bonds
Barry Bonds

The 500 home run club is a group of Major League Baseball (MLB) batters who have hit 500 or more regular-season home runs in their careers. On August 11, 1929, Babe Ruth became the first member of the club. Ruth ended his career with 714 home runs, a record which stood from 1935 until Hank Aaron surpassed it in 1974. Aaron's ultimate career total, 755, remained the record until Barry Bonds (pictured) set the current mark of 762 during the 2007 season. Twenty-seven players are members of the 500 home run club. Of these 27 players, 14 were right-handed batters, 11 were left-handed, and 2 were switch hitters. The San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox are the only franchises to see four players reach the milestone while on their roster. Five 500 home run club members—Aaron, Willie Mays, Eddie Murray, Rafael Palmeiro, and Alex Rodriguez—are also members of the 3,000 hit club. (Full list...)
