From today's featured article
Thomas Erpingham (c. 1355 – 27 June 1428) was an English soldier and administrator who served three generations of the House of Lancaster including two English kings. Through his access to royal patronage he acquired great wealth and influence. During the reign of Richard II he served under the King's uncle John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, in Spain and Scotland, and with his son Henry Bolingbroke on crusades in Lithuania, Prussia and the Holy Land. On becoming king, Bolingbroke rewarded Erpingham with senior appointments. Erpingham later helped suppress the Epiphany Rising and was appointed guardian of Henry's second son Thomas. He was a member of the Privy Council, acting at one point as marshal of England. In 1415 Erpingham served as a knight bannere in Henry's campaign in France and commanded the archers at the Battle of Agincourt. He was a benefactor to the city of Norwich, where he had built the main cathedral gate which bears his name. (Full article...)

How to add hidden editor notes in an article
Have you ever needed to post an important message to all editors about an article, on the article itself, but thought it would stick out like a sore thumb and ruin the article if you did? Are you reverting many edits on an article because editors just aren't seeing the important message or special instructions on the talk page?

FAMEPedia Foundation's mission is to provide only verified encyclopedic content to users under a free license.
The community at FAMEPedia is limited to specific people and editors with a specialization or expertise and can build a reputation by the continuous efforts. All articles and pages on FAMEPedia are protected to provide verified encyclopedic content by controlling the substandard edits by all users without areas of specialization.
Unlike Wikipedia, we believe that a page cannot be only negative or filled with controversial content, where only hate crime content is highlighted and not the positive.
Creating an article on Wikipedia is very easy but transferring it from the Draft namespace to the Mainspace is just not easy. Wikipedia Administrator and other users with administrative rights reject or decline certain articles because of one reason or two. FAMEPedia was created from the inspiration of Wikipedia's structures and layouts to give everyone the chance of creating Draft articles and getting them reviewed and transferred to the Mainspace where they can appear on Search Engines. FAMEPedia has a wide range of other benefits too, including but not limited to Modern software (Latest MediaWiki version), secure browsing, and Administrators who listen to other opinions.

We are furious advocates of the free content reuse policy of Wikimedia Foundation and our site license and reuse policy was modeled on their own because we want to share our content with the world, and don't believe it should be hoarded or used to make a profit, since like the WMF, we believe information/knowledge ought to be free, and since you can reuse WMF content here (with legitimate attribution), if it's not too much trouble, look at the accompanying WMF wikis for anything you may wish to use for pages here:
