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.

Tom Cruise filmography[edit]

American actor Tom Cruise made his debut in the romantic drama Endless Love (1981). His breakthrough role was in the coming-of-age comedy Risky Business (1983), for which he garnered his first Golden Globe Award nomination. In 1986, Cruise played a fighter pilot in Tony Scott's Top Gun, which was the highest grossing film of that year; he returned to the role in Top Gun: Maverick (2022). He portrayed anti-war activist Ron Kovic in Born on the Fourth of the July (1989), for which he received his first Golden Globe Award. Three years later, he appeared with Jack Nicholson in the legal drama A Few Good Men (1992). In 1996, Cruise starred as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible, the first film from his production company Cruise/Wagner Productions; he has appeared in six sequel films to date, most recently Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023). He earned his second and third Golden Globes for the title role in Cameron Crowe's Jerry Maguire (1996) and the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed drama Magnolia (1999). (Full list...)

I'd suggest June 26 to coincide with the release of Top Gun: Maverick. Cowlibob (talk) 20:30, 19 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just as a note, Top Gun: Maverick is now scheduled for a December 23, 2020 release date. --Ahecht (TALK

A general comment regarding this list: The blurb fails to cover the last 20 years of Cruise's career, which doesn't make sense. In my opinion, the blurb should be reworked to summarize the entire list if this is to be used at TFL. RunningTiger123 (talk) 18:07, 6 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So... since the original idea was to run this with the release of Top Gun: Maverick, which isn't an option anymore, should we just run this list when convenient? RunningTiger123 (talk) 01:56, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not involved with this one at all but what about Friday July 14, release date of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One? —⁠Collint c 00:58, 31 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also not involved, but to help move this 4-year old nomination on seeing as it missed July 14, 2023, I'm going to suggest May 16, 2024 (Friday May 17 being the closest TFL date), to coincide with the U.S. release date of Top Gun in 1986. Idiosincrático (talk) 05:50, 28 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I also support May 16, 2024 (it's been here longer than I've been editing... I'll miss it but it's past time to move this TFL nom along). RunningTiger123 (talk) 02:41, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of Colorado ballot measures[edit]

A Colorado woman campaigns for women's suffrage

The U.S. state of Colorado has had a system of direct voting since gaining statehood in 1876. Citizens and the Colorado General Assembly both have the ability to place new legislation, those recently passed by the General Assembly, and constitutional amendments on the ballot for a popular vote. Colorado has three types of ballot measures that can be voted on in a statewide election: initiatives, referendums, and legislatively referred measures. The first successful citizen-initiated measures were passed in 1912. Since that time, ballot measures have played a major role in Colorado politics. After Denver was awarded the hosting rights to the 1976 Winter Olympics, citizens moved to block funding the games with a ballot measure in 1972. A 1990 ballot measure instituting term limits for many elected officials helped galvanize a nationwide movement for term limits, and 2000's Amendment 20 legalized the medical use of marijuana. That measure was followed by full decriminalization in 2012 and the decriminalization of psilocybin mushrooms in 2022. (Full list...)

I would suggest August 1, 2024 to coincide with Colorado's 148th anniversary of statehood. ThadeusOfNazereth(he/him)Talk to Me! 12:19, 25 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ThadeusOfNazereth: Note that August 1 is a Thursday; this could be run on August 2 (Friday) instead, or postponed to next year when August 1 is a Friday since it seems like this is lining up with just a "regular" anniversary instead of a "major" anniversary (like 20 years, 50, 100, etc.).

@RunningTiger123: Thanks for the ping. I'd rather it run sooner rather than later so I am fine with August 2, 2024. In 52 years I'll make sure to renominate for the 200th anniversary, though! ThadeusOfNazereth(he/him)Talk to Me!

List of presidents of New York University[edit]

Seventeen people have held the office of President and Chancellor of New York University (NYU), a private research university seated in New York City. The president of NYU is its chief executive officer, and is elected by the university's board of trustees, of which the president is a member ex officio. From the university's founding by Albert Gallatin in 1831, until 1956, the head of NYU was the chancellor. That year, the office became known as "president and chancellor", or "president", for short. The president recommends persons to fill the university's senior offices, including provost, executive vice president, general counsel, and deans, who are then appointed by the board. The president also presides over the university senate and confers all degrees, with the board's authorization and upon certification of a student by the faculty. The current president, Linda G. Mills, a social worker who is the university's first female president, assumed office on July 1, 2023. (Full list...)

I would suggest April 21, 2024, for this TFL, as that would be the 193rd anniversary of the founding of NYU. Thank you for your review. Ergo Sum 15:20, 9 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Note that April 21 is a Sunday; this could be run on April 19 (Friday) or April 22 (Monday). RunningTiger123 (talk) 20:35, 5 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ergo Sum: pinging for previous comment. RunningTiger123 (talk) 20:50, 5 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Since the 22nd is closer to the 21st, I would think the 22nd would be best. Thank you. Ergo Sum 16:20, 6 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The American sitcom Friends has earned many awards and nominations. The show aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004. During its run, it won six Primetime Emmy Awards from sixty-two nominations, including the Outstanding Comedy Series award in 2002 and acting wins for cast members Jennifer Aniston (pictured) and Lisa Kudrow.

List of variations on Pachelbel's Canon[edit]

"Pachelbel's Howitzer", a piece that reworks the Canon into multiple genres for piano

Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D major has been credited with inspiring a significant number of pop songs since the 1960s. After the mid-Baroque era piece was revived from obscurity in the 1960s, its chord progression, bassline, and melodic structure were reproduced in a number of contemporary pop songs, a phenomenon attributed to the memorability and simplicity of the work as well as renewed interest in it. While Pachelbel's Canon itself is not a staple of pop music, it shares common roots with other, more significant chord progressions that lay the foundations of modern pop music. Its perceived ubiquity is itself an object of cultural discussion. (Full list...)

Anthony Davis, the first pick in the draft, in his rookie season for the New Orleans Hornets

The 2012 NBA draft was held on June 28, 2012, at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and broadcast in the United States on ESPN. The New Orleans Hornets won the NBA draft lottery on May 30. For the first time in draft history, the first two players selected were from the same school (Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were teammates at Kentucky). It also set a record of having six players from one school (Kentucky) selected and was the first draft to have the first three selections be college freshmen all from the same conference (Southeastern Conference). Bernard James was the oldest player ever drafted, being 27 years old at the time of the draft. Four of the players selected never played in an NBA game. The draft class went on to have six players who participated in an All-Star Game, seven players who combined for 10 championships, as well as having Anthony Davis and Damian Lillard both named to the NBA 75th Anniversary Team in 2021. (Full list...)

Would suggest for June 28, 2024 to coincide with the 12th anniversary of the draft. -- ZooBlazer 02:02, 25 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
