History of Featured Articles

Before September 2017 no changes were made to the Featured Article for several years. I've compiled the history since 2017 of the Featured Articles to:

  • Recognise gods for making good (chosen) nominations;
  • Recognise editors for keeping the featured article fresh(ish);
  • Keep an easy reference of what articles have already been featured in case of duplicate nominations; and
  • Give insights into what kinds of articles are being featured, to inform good choices by editors and nominators about what isn't getting attention.

When removing a newly featured article from the nominations list, please add the change to the table. Be sure to use {{god|extended=yes|Godname}} to give easy access to talk pages. The YYYY-MM-DD date format means that table sorting works for chronological order. -- Djonni (talk) 12:34, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
