Featured content

Featured portal, which was proposed by Cyberjunkie, has featured its first portal this week: Cricket.

Surprisingly, no articles were promoted to featured status this week. Meanwhile, Behistun Inscription, Roy Orbison, and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. recently lost their Featured Article status.

The following featured articles were displayed last week on the main page as Today's featured article: U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program, Chennai, Captain Marvel (DC Comics), Early life of Joseph Smith, Jr., Sicilian Baroque, Ido, and Richard O'Connor. December 25th was to display Christmas, but since the article is currently a candidate for removal, Featured Article Director Raul654 replaced it with Ido.

Two lists reached featured list status this week: List of Oh My Goddess episodes and List of Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom.

Eight pictures reached featured picture status this week:
