The Featured Article Help Desk is a place for those who would like to see a particular article promoted to featured article status, but don't know how to go about it, or would like some assistance.
Anybody can join, whether they are veterans of Wikipedia or newbies to Wikipedia. However, we invite anyone to edit articles that are in need of assistance.
How can we help?
What do we help with?
When a request for assistance is submitted, we will review the article and make suggestions for its improvement based on our experience with the criteria for featured articles. We can do this for articles which you plan on listing on featured article candidates, or for articles which already have a listing.
In addition to telling you what we think needs doing, we can help you do some of it; improving formatting, sorting out problems with images, copyediting, rewording entire text if needed - we'll help to do what has to be done to get your article on the main page.
Why do we do this?
The Featured Article Help Desk team are a group of Wikipedians who are dedicated to improving the quality of all articles on the encyclopedia. To this end, we like to see as many articles as possible promoted to featured article status, and we want to help editors with this.
To begin the process of requesting help, please go to /Requests and follow the simple instructions there.
Who is involved?
A full list of participants can be found at /Participants. If you'd like to get involved, please feel free to add your name to the list, and add the requests page to your watchlist so you can keep up-to-date on what's happening.
