New featured picture: dramatic but still—the Haitian Presidential Palace, taken the day after the devastating 2010 earthquake. The palace's collapsed cupola has become a symbol of the devastation caused by the quake.

This week's "Features and admins" covers Saturday 26 February – Friday 4 March

New administrators

The Signpost welcomes three editors as our newest admins.

At the time of publication there are two live RfAs: Gfoley4 and Slon02 3, both due to finish Saturday 12 March.

Four featured sounds were promoted.

Four lists were promoted:

A heatmap in the shape of a brain; the center is less bright.
From the new featured article, Parkinson's disease: a PET scan of a healthy brain can be a reference point for diagnosing Parkinson's disease, which involves decreased dopamine activity in the basal ganglia.
Seven articles were promoted to featured status:

A side-view photograph of a white bird perched atop a rock in front of blue waves crashing in. The white bird has an orange beak with a black wattle and Tertials
New featured picture: User:Benjamint444's photograph of the Nazca Booby on its breeding island in the Galapagos
The same user's photograph of the Common Imperial Blue Butterfly, also promoted last week

Seven images were promoted. Medium-sized images can be viewed by clicking on "nom":

Photograph of a large white animal head with two brownish horns sticking out from its snout.
New featured picture: Black Rhinoceros skull, collected in southern Africa in the 19th century and now housed in the Gallery of Paleontology and Compared Anatomy, National Museum of Natural History, Paris

Information about new admins at the top is drawn from their user pages and RfA texts, and occasionally from what they tell us directly.

Just a note for the next edition, it's conceivable that we'll hit 2000 featured lists. We're at 1995 at the moment, and last week's number of promotions was lower than usual. —WFC14:58, 8 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

You don't show all the FP's?  :( TCO (talk) 23:14, 8 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

The window is from Saturday to Friday, end midnight UTC. Did we miss any? Tony (talk) 07:53, 9 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
You discuss seven FPs in text, but only show four of them as images.

TCO, it's a great map, but we can't possibly show all. We will endeavour to show a map in the future. I removed it from here. Link is above for readers who wish to see it. Tony (talk) 08:12, 9 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
