This template generates the Featured Article section of the Fanlore main page. To read more about the Featured Article process in general, check out Fanlore:Featured Articles. Fanlore Policy & Admin and gardeners are responsible for maintaining featured article pages and templates.
How the template works
This template has several subpages, one per week: Fanlore:Featured Article Archives/2017: Week 27, Fanlore:Featured Article Archives/2017: Week 28, Fanlore:Featured Article Archives/2017: Week 29 and so on. Each subpage contains the initial paragraph (or two) of an article selected for featuring; that's the content that will appear on the main page.
This template checks what week of the year we're in (1-53) and picks the subpage corresponding to that week to display on the main page.
How to add content for upcoming featured pages
The tables below lists all available weekly pages for this year and next year:
Find the link to the page you want to fill in. Copy the first paragraph or two from the article text, along with any links, to this page, following the format below. Make sure not to include any infoboxes, notices, or images—just the text for the first paragraph or two and the category. Make sure to include a bolded link to the page itself.
'''[[Page title]]''' is something something. Rest of the paragraph follows. <noinclude>[[Category:Featured Article Archives]]</noinclude>
Save the page. And that's it! The section should display correctly on the main page once the week in question starts.
What to do when a new year is about to start
Edit this page and replace all mentions of the current year in the template text with mentions of the upcoming year. Make sure to change both the links in the template below and in the table above.
If the new year won't start for a few weeks, be careful—make sure to leave the last few weeks of the current year unchanged in the template, so that it can display the last few featured articles of the year correctly. (You can always come back and change the year in those links after the start of the new year.)
This week's featured article
Originally created to succeed Dick Grayson as Robin, Batman's sidekick, Jason was ultimately killed off in the storyline 1988 A Death in the Family. Several years later, Jason returned as the murderous criminal Red Hood in the 2005 storyline Under the Hood; ever since he has remained active as a villain or antihero, in the comics and in various media adaptations.
Many would agree that the 2010 animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood is the catalyst for Jason's rise in popularity among the general public, as well as kick-starting a fresh following of newer fans. For a character whose death was voted on by fans, Jason has gone on to make high-profile appearances in various forms of media outside of comics, including television series and video games. His character as the reincarnated Red Hood has attracted a robust fanbase, and thusly has become a fan favourite in the DC fandom.
In response to Jason's story, fan works often explore topics related to trauma, morals, and family dynamics. Although his characterisation in the fandom can vary widely due to contradictions and inconsistencies in different canon materials, the majority of fan works revolve around Jason's relationships with Bruce Wayne and the Batfamily.
