Featured articles or Articles of the Month (AOTM) are articles that are so good that they should be featured on the Main Page. Doing so will cause many people to notice that article, as the main page is the first thing people see when they visit the site.


Articles must meet certain criteria. If it does not, then it cannot be featured.

The article
