Today's featured list submissions

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

Lists suggested here must be featured lists that have not previously appeared on the main page.

Today's featured list launched in June 2011, initially on each Monday. In January 2014 it was agreed to expand to appear twice a week. The lists will be selected by the FL director, based on the consensus of the community.

To submit a list for main page consideration, you simply need to draft a short summary of the list, in approximately 1000 characters, along with a relevant image from the list itself, using the template provided below. Should you need any assistance using the template, feel free to ask for help on the talk page. If you are nominating a list submitted by someone else, consider notifying the significant contributor(s) with {{subst:tfln|NAME OF LIST}} ~~~~

The community will review submissions, and suggest improvements where appropriate. If a blurb receives broad support, and there are no actionable objections, one of the directors will confirm that it has been accepted for main page submission. Please note there should be no more than fifteen nominations listed here at any one time.

In rare circumstances, the directors reserve the right to exclude a list from main page consideration, a practice consistent with other main page sections such as Today's featured article and Picture of the day. Should this ever happen, a detailed explanation will be given.

List of five-wicket hauls in women's Twenty20 International cricket

Eleven cricketers have taken twelve five-wicket hauls in women's Twenty20 International cricket (T20I). A notable achievement, it refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. The first to reach the milestone was New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite against England in 2007. Taking six wickets for 17 runs, this is the best bowling figures by a player in the international women's format and the sole six-wicket haul. The most recent five-wicket haul was taken by Molly Strano of Australia against New Zealand in February 2017. The youngest player to take five wickets in a innings is Shaquana Quintyne of the West Indies aged 17 while the oldest at 29 years of age is India's Jhulan Goswami. West Indian cricketer Anisa Mohammed is the only bowler to have achieved the feat twice. (Full list...)

  • Support looks like a good list to me and would give the front page some variety. Aoba47 (talk) 17:56, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Family Guy (season 4)

The fourth season of the American animated comedy series Family Guy marked the show's return after a three-year hiatus. Due to low ratings, Fox cancelled the series after the conclusion of its third season in 2002. Increasing DVD sales and the popularity of its reruns on the Adult Swim network convinced Fox to revive the program, the first time a TV series was brought back on the basis of its DVD sales. The season, consisting of thirty episodes, premiered on May 1, 2005, and ran until May 21, 2006. The season's final three episodes, edited for content in broadcast form, were originally produced as a single standalone film called Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, which was released on DVD on September 27, 2005. Critical reception for the season was mostly positive. Two episodes from season four were nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program. (Full list...)


  • I don't know if it can happen, but can this list be featured on May 1, 2017? It's on a Monday. MCMLXXXIX 00:28, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support – Prose is clear and the selected date makes sense in this context. Aoba47 (talk) 03:38, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment – I almost entirely rewrote this blurb. The prose was messy but I think it's clearer now, and better reflective of the text in the article. I also changed out the picture of MacFarlane, which was not the one that appeared in the article. BobAmnertiopsisChatMe! 05:07, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Audie Murphy was one of the most decorated American combat soldiers of World War II, receiving every U. S. Army combat award for valor available at that time, as well as French and Belgian awards for heroism. He served in nine World War II campaigns, receiving the Medal of Honor after single-handedly holding off an entire company of German soldiers for an hour at the Colmar Pocket in France. After his 1945 discharge at the end of the war, he advocated for combat stress disorder treatment for veterans. He later became a successful film actor, and joined the Texas National Guard during the Korean War, serving as a reserve officer until 1969. Murphy died May 28, 1971 in a plane crash in Virginia, and was interred with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. The Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital in San Antonio was dedicated in 1973 in his honor. The Texas government recognized Murphy's National Guard service by awarding him the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor in 2013. (Full list...)

Part of the Audie Murphy series, one of Wikipedia's featured topics.
  • Comment - If possible, this would be good for Monday, May 29, 2017, which is the official Memorial Day holiday in the United States. — Maile (talk) 23:35, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
