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.

Saif Ali Khan filmography[edit]

Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is an Indian actor who works in Hindi films. He made his debut with a leading role in the drama Parampara (1993) and then starred in Aashik Awara (1993). The latter earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut, but failed to do well commercially, as did his next three releases–Parampara (1993), Pehchaan (1993), and Imtihaan (1994). Later in 1994, Khan played supporting roles alongside Akshay Kumar in two of the highest-grossing films of the year–the romance Yeh Dillagi and the action drama Main Khiladi Tu Anari. For his performance in the latter, he received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. This success was followed by a series of commercial failures, leading to a setback in Khan's career. Khan played the second male lead behind Ajay Devgn in Milan Luthria's action thriller Kachche Dhaage (1999) which was his first commercial success since Main Khiladi Tu Anari; it also earned him another nomination for Best Supporting Actor at Filmfare.

On 11 October, with the release of his film Laal Kaptaan. Yashthepunisher (talk) 05:29, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

@Yashthepunisher: Unfortunately, the 11th isn't available because I had scheduled another list on that date per a previous request to move back a TFL appearance to that spot. The earliest TFL slot available right now is October 14; let me know if this date works for you and we can run it then. Giants2008 (Talk) 22:09, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
That's okay. Is 29 November available? Coz its the release date of another film of his. Yashthepunisher (talk) 09:23, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
@Yashthepunisher: November 29 is a Friday, so that date will be available for this list (nothing is scheduled for November yet). I'll leave this nom up so that I remember this article when the time comes to schedule TFL for that day. Giants2008 (Talk) 17:18, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

YouTube Awards[edit]

YouTube logo

The YouTube Awards was a promotion run by the website YouTube (logo pictured) to recognize the best user-generated videos of the year. The awards were presented twice, in 2007 and 2008, with winners being voted for by the site's users from shortlists compiled by YouTube staff. YouTube was launched on February 14, 2005, and quickly began to grow – by July 2006, traffic to the site had increased by 297 percent. As a result of this success, in March 2007, YouTube launched their own awards promotion to honor some of the site's best videos. Seven shortlists were compiled, with ten videos per shortlist. Singer Damian Kulash, whose band OK Go won in the Most Creative category for their music video Here It Goes Again, described receiving a YouTube Award as a "surreal honor". The YouTube Awards returned the following year, to commemorate the best videos of 2007. This year, the number of categories was expanded from seven to twelve, while the number of videos per shortlist was reduced from ten to six. (Full list...)

I'd like to suggest that this be run on 14 February, YouTube's 15th birthday. If the logo wouldn't be an appropriate lead image, perhaps it can be swapped out for this one instead. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 10:38, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

List of MLS Cup finals[edit]

The MLS Cup is the annual championship match of Major League Soccer (MLS), the top-level association football (soccer) league for the United States and Canada. The match marks the conclusion of the MLS Cup Playoffs, a four-round knockout competition contested by the top six teams from each of the league's two conferences. The playoffs tournament is organized by the league at the end of the regular season in a format similar to other professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada, but unlike other soccer leagues. First contested in 1996, the MLS Cup was originally hosted by a predetermined neutral site, but is now hosted by the remaining team with the highest regular season standing. Atlanta United FC are the reigning cup-holders, having defeated the Portland Timbers in the 2018 final, which was watched by 73,019 spectators at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and set a competition attendance record. The Los Angeles Galaxy hold the record for most MLS Cup titles, having won five times in nine appearances. (Full list...)

I feel like this blurb would be perfect for 11 November, which begins (at UTC) during the waning minutes (and perhaps extra time and a shootout) of the 2019 final, which is the 24th edition for the 24-team league. SounderBruce 22:11, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
