Featured articles are articles that are considered in the Toaru Majutsu no Index wiki, to be a well written article that, according to its editors and contributors, requires or demands enough particular attention that it should be featured on the main page of the wiki. The purpose of a featured article is to show a well written article, or to show an interesting article to the readers, or to garner attention for a neglected article.

They are used as examples and guidelines on how articles are written in this wiki. Although, there is still no exact basis on how articles can become featured, other than the Manual of Style, a featured article has most of these things (based off Wikipedia's Featured article critera):

  • Well written
  • Comprehensive
  • Well-researched
  • Neutral
  • Not subject to massive changes or edit wars
  • It is properly structured
  • It is uses consistent citations, references and footnotes
  • A suitable amount of images, with appropriate captions and thumbnail sizes.
  • It is suitable in length and properly summarized.

Once an article is nominated for being a featured article, it will be voted by editors and contributors if they see the article fit for being a featured article. Afterwards, a golden pentagram, a magic array, will be placed on the top-right corner of an article's page to indicate that the article is featured.

The opening paragraph and a picture would be written (and would similarly, be put into an archive) for the article in the This month's featured article, as can be seen below, which is regularly edited each month for the sake of a new featured article.

For nominations go to the Featured article candidates page. This page displays a list of articles that are currently featured.

This month's featured article

Each month the wiki chooses an article to be featured on the main page of the wiki, at which point, they are required to make an opening line for the article. Most often, the opener is copied directly off the article itself, but it is not required, as such, an editor can make an entirely new opener for the article. The most important part is that it properly introduces the article.

Below is this month's Featured article:

Featured Article for the Month
Star of Bethlehem (Anime)

The Star of Bethlehem, as it appears in the anime.

With Toaru Majutsu no Index III just finished, the first post-Index III Featured Article is for a key subject from the World War III Arc: the Star of Bethlehem.

The Star of Bethlehem was a flying fortress and ceremonial ground, created and used by Fiamma of the Right during World War III. Named after and symbolizing the celestial object which heralded the birth of the Son of God and the dawn of a new age, it played a key role in Fiamma's plan to purify and 'save' the world, Project Bethlehem.

Constructed from hundreds of thousands of holy relics and pieces taken from churches and cathedrals across the world, and incorporating techniques from the three major churches of Christianity, the Star of Bethlehem was forty kilometers across, in the rough shape of a cross with the right side twice as long as the others, but with a constantly shifting and regenerating structure.

Ascending several kilometers into the sky, the Star had a crucial role in many stages of Fiamma's plan, including the summoning of Archangel Gabriel, the re-alignment of the distorted elements, and bringing the Holy Right to its full potential...
