Featured portals in Wikipedia

This star symbolises the featured content on Wikipedia.

This page highlights portals that are regarded as being particularly useful, attractive, and well-maintained. Of the many portals on Wikipedia, these featured portals are those which stand out. To nominate a portal to become a featured portal, please first see the general standards and then add the portal to the list at featured portal candidates.

At present, there are 145 featured portals, of a total of 583 portals on Wikipedia. Thus, about one in four portals is listed here. Portals that no longer meet the criteria can be proposed for improvement or removal at Wikipedia:Featured portal review.

A small bronze star (This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.) on the top right corner of a portal's page indicates that the portal is featured. Additionally, if the current portal is featured in another language version, a star will appear next to the language page link, in the list on the left of the page.
