Wikipedia:Today's featured list/Get involved

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The founding principle of Today's featured list was to ensure that the experience for all participants was as straightforward as possible. On the whole, this remains the case, but it is inevitable that a community-based process culminating in main page content will involve a degree of complexity behind the scenes. This page is intended as a one-stop shop for people who would like to help with the smooth running of TFL.


The following things should only be done by the FLC directors (Giants2008 (talk · contribs), Crisco 1492 (talk · contribs) and SchroCat (talk · contribs)), or with their approval.


Administrators are welcome to help with the following:

  • Ensure that {{TFL-editnotice}} is added to a list before it goes on the main page, and removed once it comes off the main page.
    • {{TFL-editnotice}} should not be added to a list which has been protected.
  • Correcting errors reported at Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors.
  • Ensure that images due to appear on the main page have been protected. Further instructions can be found at Category:Protected main page images.
  • Watchlisting Wikipedia:Today's featured list; actions that can only be performed by administrators are frequently requested there.
  • Move-protecting FLs on the day they are scheduled to appear on the Main Page.
