Today's featured list submissions

This star symbolizes the featured content on Dudeism.

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.

Step-by-step guide to submitting a list {{Wikipedia:Featured article tools/without list}}

  1. Select a featured list.
  2. Click here to start a new section at the bottom of this page.
  3. Copy and paste the following, if it has not automatically appeared:
    {{TFLcontent

    |title=
    |alt=
    |blurb=
    |topic1=
    |topic2=
    |link=
    }}
  4. Write a 1-paragraph blurb of approximately 1000 characters alongside |blurb=. Don't worry about getting the character count exact: there is considerable flexibility, and we can always adapt it if necessary.
  5. Add the image file name after |image=.
  6. Add a caption alongside |title=.
  7. Write some alt text alongside |alt=, for those who are unable to view images.
  8. Type the name of the list after |link= without the square brackets ([[ and ]]).
  9. If the list is part of one (or two) Featured topics (NB not "good topics"), add the name(s) of the topics without square brackets after |topic1= and |topic2=.

Mahanoy Creek is a 51-mile (82 km) long tributary of the Susquehanna River in Schuylkill County and Northumberland County, in Pennsylvania, in the United States. It has eleven officially named tributaries, of which six are direct tributaries and five are sub-tributaries. These include seven creeks and four runs. The largest tributary by both length and watershed area is Schwaben Creek, which is 10.7 miles (17.2 km) long and drains an area of 30.2 square miles (78 km2). The second-largest by these measures is Zerbe Run, which is 8.3 miles (13.4 km) long and drains an area of 13.1 square miles (34 km2). Many of the tributaries of Mahanoy Creek have been impacted by mining, including Zerbe Run, Shenandoah Creek, and North Mahanoy Creek. Schwaben Creek and Little Mahanoy Creek are the only large tributaries that are not affected by mining. Many of the upper tributaries are in the Western Middle Anthracite Field. In March 2001, the pH ranged from 4.7 for Lost Creek to 8.4 for Schwaben Creek. Some streams were downstream of abandoned mine drainage discharges accounting for their acidity. (Full list...)


  • Comment: Will this go with a red-link on main page? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 09:56, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Is there a rule against it? --Jakob (talk) aka Jakec 13:30, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure about any rules for it, but we're only supposed to have red links if the target is notable enough for an article. If it is notable enough, it would be worth having at least a stub to link to. – SchroCat (talk) 14:08, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
