How to have your article featured

Featured articles are chosen daily by the Enchanter team and displayed in the Community portal of World Anvil, as well as promoted through our social media and the #daily-feature channel of our Discord server. Featured articles are examples of great worldbuilding and usage of World Anvil's features.  

What makes a good featured article?

This is a list of things we look in articles we want to feature:  
Credited Art: Always credit the artist behind the art you are using- even if you are the artist! For more information on how to find images, read our Guide to Images.
Going forward this will now be a mandatory requirement; don't credit your artists? Your article can no longer be featured- and will no longer be eligible to win competitions!
 
Cover image: This makes the article stand out in the page previews on social media, but it's also a technical requirement for articles to have one.
 
Good-looking: Use BBCode Formatting to embed maps or Spotify songs, or add spoiler buttons and tooltips (etc), to make your article more interactive.
 
Great content: Of course, the most important part of any article is its content! Make sure the article is well written. We want to see your best work!
Currently, we only feature articles that are written in the English language. Having perfect English, however, is not required; we're sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
 

How do I know if my article is good enough?

If you are not sure about the quality of your worldbuilding, you can ask for feedback in our Discord community! The #worldbuilding channels, as well as the Chapters (if you are part of any), are great places to ask for advice.   Additionally, you can browse the community page to see other featured articles as well as popular articles from the community. Challenge winners also tend to be high-quality, so take a look at them for some inspiration!

I've never been featured!

If you think your content is feature-worthy but have never been featured, there are some things you can do. First of all, double-check that your articles meets all the points noted in this article. Crediting art is extremely important, so keep this in mind.   Make sure to share your article on Discord and participate on challenges. We are not robots, so the only way we have to get feature candidates is from past challenges and from the Discord server. But remember, the goal of sharing your articles should be improving your writing, not getting likes!  

Knowing you've been featured

If your article has been featured, it will be posted on Discord with a mention to your username (if you are in there). If you have your social media handles in your World Anvil profile, we will also mention you in our social media posts.
