Today's featured list submissions

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

Lists suggested here must be featured lists that have not previously appeared on the main page.

Today's featured list launched in June 2011, initially on each Monday. In January 2014 it was agreed to expand to appear twice a week. The lists will be selected by the FL director, based on the consensus of the community.

To submit a list for main page consideration, you simply need to draft a short summary of the list, in approximately 1000 characters, along with a relevant image from the list itself, using the template provided below. Should you need any assistance using the template, feel free to ask for help on the talk page. If you are nominating a list submitted by someone else, consider notifying the significant contributor(s) with {{subst:tfln|NAME OF LIST}} ~~~~

The community will review submissions, and suggest improvements where appropriate. If a blurb receives broad support, and there are no actionable objections, one of the directors will confirm that it has been accepted for main page submission. Please note there should be no more than fifteen nominations listed here at any one time.

In rare circumstances, the directors reserve the right to exclude a list from main page consideration, a practice consistent with other main page sections such as Today's featured article and Picture of the day. Should this ever happen, a detailed explanation will be given.

Tom Cruise filmography[edit]

American actor Tom Cruise made his debut in the romantic drama Endless Love (1981). His breakthrough role was in the coming-of-age comedy Risky Business (1983), for which he garnered his first Golden Globe Award nomination. In 1986, Cruise played a fighter pilot in Tony Scott's Top Gun, which was the highest grossing film of that year. He portrayed anti-war activist Ron Kovic in Born on the Fourth of the July (1989), for which he received the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama. Three years later, he appeared with Jack Nicholson in the legal drama A Few Good Men (1992). In 1996, Cruise starred as Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible, the first film produced by his production company Cruise/Wagner Productions. In the same year he played the title role in Cameron Crowe's Jerry Maguire. Three years later, he appeared in Paul Thomas Anderson-directed drama Magnolia (1999). For his performance Cruise won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture. (Full list...)

I'd suggest June 26 to coincide with the release of Top Gun: Maverick. Cowlibob (talk) 20:30, 19 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A general comment regarding this list: The blurb fails to cover the last 20 years of Cruise's career, which doesn't make sense. In my opinion, the blurb should be reworked to summarize the entire list if this is to be used at TFL. RunningTiger123 (talk) 18:07, 6 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So... since the original idea was to run this with the release of Top Gun: Maverick, which isn't an option anymore, should we just run this list when convenient? RunningTiger123 (talk) 01:56, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not involved with this one at all but what about Friday July 14, release date of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One? —⁠Collint c 00:58, 31 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of accolades received by 24 Oras[edit]

The Philippine television newscast 24 Oras won thirty awards from eighty-three nominations. It premiered on GMA Network on March 15, 2004. The newscast focuses on reportage of present-day events, with periodical appearances of several segments, each having a different topic. 24 Oras initially featured Mel Tiangco and Mike Enriquez; the newscast's anchors changed significantly during its run.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, an Armenian retired professional footballer, scored 32 international goals between 2007 and 2022 in 95 appearances for the Armenia national football team. He is the team's all-time top scorer, and has the second most appearances for Armenia, behind only Sargis Hovsepyan. He made his debut for the country on 14 January 2007 in a 1–1 draw with Panama and scored his first international goal over two years later against Estonia in a FIFA World Cup qualification match. Mkhitaryan scored his only international hat-trick against Guatemala on 29 May 2016 in a offical friendly; Guatemala is also statistically his joint-favourite opponent along with Bosnia and Herzegovina, who has also conceded a total of three goals from the winger. During 2017, Mkhitaryan scored six goals for Armenia, it was his most prolific year for the team; he scored his final goal against Germany on 14 November 2021. (Full list...)

I would suggest January 21, 2024 to coincide with Mkhitaryan's birthday. Idiosincrático (talk) 06:24, 12 October 2023 (UTC) (edited)Reply[reply]

List of Colorado ballot measures[edit]

The U.S. state of Colorado has had a system of direct voting since gaining statehood in 1877. Citizens and the Colorado General Assembly both have the ability to place new legislation, those recently passed by the General Assembly, and constitutional amendments on the ballot for a popular vote. Colorado has three types of ballot measures that can be voted on in a statewide election: initiatives, referendums, and legislatively referred measures. The first successful citizen-initiated measures were passed in 1912. Since that time, ballot measures have played a major role in Colorado politics. After Denver was awarded the hosting rights to the 1976 Winter Olympics, citizens moved to block funding the games with a ballot measure in 1972. A 1990 ballot measure instituting term limits for many elected officials helped galvanize a nationwide movement for term limits, and 2000's Amendment 20 legalized the medical use of marijuana. That measure was followed by full decriminalization in 2012 and the decriminalization of psilocybin mushrooms in 2022. (Full list...)

I would suggest August 1, 2024 to coincide with Colorado's 148th anniversary of statehood. ThadeusOfNazereth(he/him)Talk to Me! 12:19, 25 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of international goals scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang[edit]

Aubameyang has scored 30 international goals for Gabon
Aubameyang has scored 30 international goals for Gabon

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a professional footballer who represents the Gabon national football team as a forward. Born in France to his father who is a former Gabon international, Aubameyang has played 73 games for the national team and has scored 30 goals, making him the country's all-time top scorer. The prolific forward scored on his international debut against Morocco on 28 March 2009, helping his team win 2–1. Aubameyang scored his first and only international hat-trick against Niger in 2013 during a FIFA World Cup qualifier. The forward's last goal for the team came against Mauritania in a 1–1 friendly draw on 4 January 2022. He has scored the most of his goals against Burkina Faso, against which he has scored five; Aubameyang has since been haunted by various controversies concerning his involvement with the national team, promoting criticism and a media boycott. Nonetheless, the forward remains a valuable asset to the team and has been described as "the greatest player in Gabon" by the team's current head coach. (Full list...)

I'd suggest 28 March 2024 to coincide with Aubameyang's international debut and first international goal. Idiosincrático (talk) 06:40, 12 October 2023 (UTC) (edited)Reply[reply]

List of presidents of New York University[edit]

Seventeen people have held the office of President and Chancellor of New York University (NYU), a private research university seated in New York City. The president of NYU is its chief executive officer, and is elected by the university's board of trustees, of which the president is a member ex officio. From the university's founding by Albert Gallatin in 1831, until 1956, the head of NYU was the chancellor. That year, the office became known as "president and chancellor", or "president", for short. The president recommends persons to fill the university's senior offices, including provost, executive vice president, general counsel, and deans, who are then appointed by the board. The president also presides over the university senate and confers all degrees, with the board's authorization and upon certification of a student by the faculty. The current president, Linda G. Mills, a social worker who is the university's first female president, assumed office on July 1, 2023. (Full list...)

I would suggest April 21, 2024, for this TFL, as that would be the 193rd anniversary of the founding of NYU. Thank you for your review. Ergo Sum 15:20, 9 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
