Featured sounds in Wikipedia

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

The featured sounds are what we believe to be the best sounds in Wikipedia.

Prior to being listed here, sounds are reviewed at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates. Sounds are judged based on a set of criteria that have been developed by the community.

Any editor may nominate any file that contains sound and that they believe meets the criteria, following the instructions on the featured sound candidates page. If the community decides that a candidate meets the criteria, and that candidate garners the requisite amount of support, any registered user who feels comfortable doing so may promote the sound, following the steps outlined at the bottom of the featured sound candidates page.

At present, there are 278 featured sounds in 0 parts. For the latest featured sounds, see this month's featured log. Sounds that no longer meet the criteria can be proposed for removal by being listed at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates#Nominations for delisting.

See Wikipedia:Media help for help with playing sound files on Wikipedia.
