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.

  • Oppose – The ABC Medianet links have all gone dead, from the looks of it. Since they comprise a substantial portion of the sourcing, much of the information in the tables isn't verifiable at the moment. Until the links are fixed, I don't believe this is suitable to appear on the main page. Giants2008 (Talk) 02:29, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose: I have to agree with Giants2008 on this matter. Since the ABC Medianet links are all dead, this cannot be placed on the main page. One should be able to restore the links through a website archive rather easily. Until that is fixed, I will also have to oppose this; sorry! Aoba47 (talk) 15:00, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Glossary of bird terms

There are thousands of common English language terms that are used in relation to the study of birds—warm-blooded vertebrates of the class Aves, characterized by feathers, the ability to fly in all but the approximately 60 extant species of flightless birds, toothless, beaked jaws, the laying of hard-shelled eggs, a high metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart and a strong yet lightweight skeleton. Among other details such as size, proportions and shape, terms defining bird features developed and are used to describe features unique to the class—especially evolutionary adaptations that developed to aid flight. There are, for example, numerous terms describing the complex structural makeup up feathers (e.g., barbules, rachides and vanes); types of feathers (e.g., filoplume, pennaceous and plumulaceous feathers); and their growth and loss (e.g., colour mourph, nuptial plumage and pterylosis). Although some terms in the area may be familiar, such as back or belly, they too are defined in relation to distinct features of external bird anatomy, sometimes called topography. (Full list...)

Note: if the image caption is just too long to be used, I'm not sure the image should be used at all. I can't see how to define a few of the numbers to entries but not all, and without the numbers being tied to glossary entries, the numbers would then be all question marks for readers. There are numerous other images in the article to choose from (though none marry so well to the article's purpose as a glossary).--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 12:04, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Ah, I take it back. Here's an alternate image in the same vein that could be used but with a much shorter caption:

File:Parts of feather modified.jpg.
Caption: '''Parts of a feather:''' {{ordered list|{{Birdgloss|vane}}|{{Birdgloss|rachis}}|{{Birdgloss|barb}}|{{Birdgloss|afterfeather}}|{{Birdgloss|calamus}} }}.

You can see it in use next to the entry for flight feather.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 12:19, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

By the way, assuming this nomination succeeds, it would be nice to modify the template, or somehow manually place the text, to end with (Full glossary...). While a glossary is technically a type of list—at least insofar as it has "entries" in a class defined by the article title, and ordered by some criterion—this is so very different from other list articles, and "Full list..." for a glossary is a misnomer and would be a bit jarring.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:42, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

List of Indian naval air squadrons

Insignia of INAS 550 (Flying Fish), the first Indian naval air squadron

The Indian Navy currently operates twenty-one air squadrons. Of these, ten operate fixed-wing aircraft, eight are helicopter squadrons and the remaining three are equipped with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Building on the legacy inherited from the Royal Navy prior to Indian independence, the concept of naval aviation in India started with the establishment of Directorate of Naval Aviation at Naval Headquarters (NHQ) in early 1948. In 1951, the Fleet Requirement Unit (FRU) was formed to meet the aviation requirements of the navy. On 11 March, the FRU was commissioned at Cochin with ten newly acquired Sealand aircraft. To meet the training requirements of the pilots, the indigenously developed HAL HT-2 trainer was inducted into the FRU. On 17 January 1959, the FRU was commissioned as Indian Naval Air Squadron (INAS) 550, to be the first Indian naval air squadron. Over the decades, the Navy inducted more air squadrons with aircraft including Sea Hawks, Alizés, HAL Chetaks, Sea King 42Bs, Ilyushin Il-38s, Ka-25s, Ka-28s, Ka-31s, MiG-29Ks, HAL Dhruvs, Sikorsky SH-3s, Boeing P-8I etc. and aircraft carriers INS Vikrant, INS Viraat and INS Vikramaditya.

List of ANA Inspiration champions

Annika Sörenstam won the event three times
Annika Sörenstam won the event three times

There have been 36 champions at the ANA Inspiration, an annual women's golf competition staged at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. It was established in 1972, and is the first of the five women's major championship played each year. The event is conducted in stroke play. The champions are presented with the "Nabisco Dinah Shore Trophy", in honor of Shore, who promoted the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and helped found the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Past champions are honored with a plaque on the walk-up to the 18th green that is called the "Dinah's Walk of Champions." Since 1994, champions have taken the plunge into "Poppie's Pond". This first occurred in 1988, when Amy Alcott took the plunge, as a spontaneous act of celebration. Alcott, Betsy King, and Annika Sörenstam hold the record for the most victories with three each. Sörenstam is the only player to win back-to-back titles as a major, winning in both 2001 and 2002. As a non-major, Sandra Post won back-to-back titles in 1978 and 1979. (Full list...)

Needs a couple of minor updates, but TFL hasn't had a female-oriented list for a month or more now, so it would be worth a little bit of tidy up work. Tied to that, golf doesn't seem to have had a list on the main page for a couple of years. Harrias talk 21:39, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
