If you want to nominate, please see the following, if you want to vote then see the section after. OR if you are an admin then see the 3rd section.
Note: Not every article/media which becomes featured can be put on the Main page, only one, the best one of them can be chosen, one for the articles and one for the Media. And sometimes articles or media which are picked to be displayed on the Main page may not get the FA Star, the star which shows that an article is very high quality...
To nominate an article or media to be featured please follow the following instructions:

5.Wait to see who supports and opposes, and until it is approved or declined by an admin.
To vote simply go to the section you want to vote on, edit it and add "Support" or "Oppose" or "Neutral" in bold and your reason in normal text.
When you approve or decline a request, please state your reason. Also there should be more supports that opposes, neutrals do not count. Then edit Nature Wiki:Featured Article or Nature Wiki:Featured Media depending on the request, on that page delete the former text or media from there and for an article copy and paste the first part of that article up to the length you can so it will not extend the main page. Also for media, make a smaller version on the featured media page, delete the old one and add the new one, also enough to fit the main page without extending it. Remember that not every article/media which becomes featured can be put on the Main page, only one, the best one of them can be chosen, one for the articles and one for the Media. And sometimes articles or media which are picked to be displayed on the Main page may not get the FA Star, the star which shows that an article is very high quality...

I think this picture should be featured because it is a nice example of a landspout, plus it was the only picture I could really find, and trust me, I looked in many places. This is a very good quality photo of such a rare phenomenon, usually rare pictures are only just good enough and this one has been taken and is much more than "just good enough". --rya₪ // blab blab blab 07:36, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
User:Puffcyclopedia (I know I didn't spell that right) made the article, I helped with grammar and some other stuff, and it's gotten long enough to, in my opinion, be a featured article. What does everyone think? --Ryan Talk 11:50, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
- I think that you've just read my mind. >_> It just needs a bit of grammar and spelling corrections, possibly links to other articles and a picture or two and its ready to be featured. :) --Kushan_I.A.K.J (Talk) 12:18, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
