Featured articles are articles that are notable for their high quality and importance. They should be complete in content, be well written, follow the policies and guidelines, and be interesting enough to be put on the front page. They should also have a very minimal amount of tasks that need to be done, and should not be about spoiler-heavy subjects.

In order to keep the front page fresh, but to not overload the editors, the featured article is changed every two months. To decide what article to feature next, all editors are encouraged to nominate and vote on articles. When the time comes to change to a new article, one trusted editor gets tasked with checking the nominations, discussing with the community tie-breakers and other details, and update the front page. Detailed instructions for that editor can be found here.

Pikmin Short Movies

The Pikmin Short Movies are a trio of animated films, showing Pikmin interacting with the environment of PNF-404 alongside Captain Olimar. These films are drawn using computer generated 3D graphics. They were produced by TK3 Inc. and Nintendo Co., Ltd, and were animated by Dwango Pictures, Inc., with Shigeru Miyamoto as executive producer. The three shorts are called The Night Juicer, Treasure in a Bottle, and Occupational Hazards.

The shorts are all based on the first two Pikmin games. They focus more on the Pikmin's interactions with the environment, as well as each individual Pikmin's behaviors and actions. These aspects cannot be elaborated on inside the games, due to technical and visual limitations, as well as deviating from the gameplay purposes of the games. Some of the actions the Pikmin perform in the shorts contradict what is known to happen in the game's canon, meaning that it is not clear if the shorts take place in the same canon as the games'. These include the Pikmin being able to open up their leaves or buds into flowers seemingly at will, and White Pikmin being able to spit acid.

Previously featured articles[edit]

In 2007 and early 2008, featured articles used a rotation system where a different article from a list would be shown on the Main Page each day. It was then changed to a system where there is one featured article at a time. A list of featured articles under this system has been kept below.
