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]

List of Italy national football team hat-tricks[edit]

Paolo Rossi scored a hat-trick in the 3–2 victory against Brazil in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.
Paolo Rossi scored a hat-trick in the 3–2 victory against Brazil in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.

The first player who scored a hat-trick was Pietro Lana in the 6–2 victory against France on 15 May 1910. The highest individual score in a single match is four goals, which has been achieved by six players: Carlo Biagi, Francesco Pernigo, Omar Sívori, Alberto Orlando, Luigi Riva, and Roberto Bettega. Five players have scored a hat-trick more than once, such as Giuseppe Meazza, Angelo Schiavio, Silvio Piola, Luigi Riva and Paolo Rossi. The highest number of hat-tricks in a single match is three, which occurred during the third place match concerning the 1928 Summer Olympics, related to Italy's 11–3 victory over Egypt where Angelo Schiavio, Elvio Banchero and Mario Magnozzi each scored three goals. In the 1982 FIFA World Cup second group stage match, Italy won 3–2 against Brazil thanks to Paolo Rossi who scored a 'famous' hat-trick, allowing Italy to progress to the semi-finals. (Full list...)

I want this article be featured in when Italy will have scored their next hat-trick. If that's not possibile, I'd like to see it featured on 5 July 2022, as it's the 40th anniversary of Paolo Rossi's famous hat-trick against Brazil. Dr Salvus 21:18, 29 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Dr Salvus: We cannot predict when "Italy will have scored their next hat-trick", so I don't think that would be a possible date. As for 5 July, it is Tuesday. TFLs are only run on Monday and Friday, so both the suggested dates are most-likely not possible. – Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 19:27, 4 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
15 May 2023 (a Monday) will be the 113th anniversary of Italy's first-ever hat-trick. It's a good date imo to make it appear on the Main Page. Dr Salvus 08:52, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of international goals scored by Haasan Maatouk[edit]

Hassan Maatouk has scored 21 international goals for Lebanon
Hassan Maatouk has scored 21 international goals for Lebanon

Hassan Maatouk is an association football player who plays as a forward for the Lebanon national football team. He is the country's all-time top goalscorer and most-capped player. Since debuting for Lebanon against Saudi Arabia on 27 January 2006, Maatouk has scored 21 goals in 99 international appearances, as of 1 February 2022. His first international goal came five years later in his 20th appearance for his country against Bangladesh.

Maatouk has scored two braces for his national team, scoring twice against Kuwait in a 2–2 draw in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier, and two against Thailand in a 5–2 win in a 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualifier. (Full list...)

(I didn't lead it to FL status, Nehme1499 did it), the perfect date would be 27 January 2023 (the 17th anniversary of his Leabnon debut) to appear on the main page. Dr Salvus 20:54, 17 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My other suggestions (I'm indifferent on the blurb)[edit]

  • Selecting 26 May is way too close to 15 May where you nominated List of Italy national football team hat-tricks as that day's featured list. For purposes of maintaining diversity of topics, it is best to not have two lists of similar subject within the same month.

The 75th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored films released in 2002 and took place on March 23, 2003, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. During the ceremony, AMPAS presented Academy Awards in 24 categories. The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, was produced by Gil Cates and directed by Louis J. Horvitz. Actor Steve Martin hosted the show for the second time having previously hosted the 73rd ceremony in 2001. Chicago won six awards, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Zeta-Jones (pictured). Other winners included The Pianist with three awards, and Frida and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers with two apiece. The telecast garnered 33 million viewers in the United States. (Full list...)

I would like this list to be posted on March 13 since the 95th Academy Awards are scheduled for March 12 (or March 13 00:00 UTC), and it will have been 20 years since this particular ceremony occurred.

List of Rugby World Cup hat-tricks[edit]

Bryan Habana goes for the line.jpg

Since the inception of the Rugby World Cup in 1987, a total of 57 players have scored three tries or drop goals (a hat-trick) in a single match. The first player to achieve the feat was Craig Green, who scored four tries in New Zealand's 74–13 victory over Fiji during the 1987 Rugby World Cup. His teammate John Gallagher also scored four tries in this match. Besides Green and Gallagher, fourteen players have scored more than three tries in a match; of these, Chris Latham and Josh Lewsey have scored five, while Marc Ellis scored six in New Zealand's 145–17 victory against Japan in 1995. Two of Ellis's teammates, Eric Rush and Jeff Wilson, also scored hat-tricks in this game. Four players have scored a hat-trick of drop goals: Jannie De Beer, Jonny Wilkinson, Juan Martín Hernández and Theuns Kotzé. Of these, De Beer scored the most in one match, with five drop goals in South Africa's 44–21 victory over England in the 1999 Rugby World Cup. (Full list...)

Would be nice for this list to be featured when the 2023 Rugby World Cup starts on 8 September 2023. As close to the start date as possible would be fantastic! NapHit (talk) 20:02, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
