Templates

The nominated and featured templates don't seem to exist yet.

Also, when they are made, perhaps it would be tidier to put them on the talk page of the featured/nominated article? Happyjoe5 17:14, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Yeah I still have to get to them, and my only problem with putting them on the talk page's is that most people don't look at them and wouldn't know which pages are nominated and featured. As for the featured templated I was planning on putting a Triforce in the top right corners of the featured article pages kinda like the stars from wikipedias featured articles. --Thai420Talk to me! 17:22, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Oh, that makes more sense. Fair enough. Happyjoe5 17:28, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

New Article

Hey the Dungeon article has been up for a month or so now. Shouldn't it be changed? Fused Shadow 15:00, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Sure. Go ahead and change it this sunday if you want (I would do it myself, but I might not be here).--ShutUpNavi 16:22, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Done. Fused Shadow 16:08, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Hm... Is there a time limit for how long a article is supposed to be featured? Because I feel that it has been no changing of the featured article for quite some time now. When will a new one be featured? //Khanson

We just forget to get around to it, I suppose. Combined with the limited activity in the featured articles voting...it's hard. We've basically neglected it. --AuronKaizer! 11:27, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Not much voting...

I've noticed a lack of voting on the featured article page. Any ideas to speed up the process?


I'm changing it!

Guys, the featured article has been the same one since I joined this site two months ago. I would have done this yesterday but I was distracted -- I'm changing the featured article. LadyNorbert 14:40, 9 June 2008 (UTC) Edited to add: I went with Ocarina because there was nothing in the queue; Ocarina had more people supporting it as a featured article than opposed to it.

You know, I was thinking...

...That we should make a template, similar to the the featured and former featured article templates, that appears in the top-right corner of a page symbolizing that the page has been featured on the main page. Eh?

How we put an article in the Main page? I added Sheikah to the /Queue, but I don't know if I have to modify the FA of the Main Page by myself or if I have to talk to someone :S

Not updated?

It looks as though there hasn't been a new featured article in quite awhile. Doesn't really matter if it goes on the main page or not, just that the votes have been sitting there forever.

should i??

Should i remove Flashpenny's vote? because he was banned for so long for some pretty serious reasons? When you think about it, it does illiegitimize all his and Big Poes votes, should i?

I just wish that we select articles with more specificity, maybe they should be more complete when we select them for featuration. If we are gonna to put an article as feature it must have something outstanding and revolutionary or at least have all of the characteristic as the best articles in the wikia, somethings like galleries, japanese information, starting quote, informative based on facts, and if the article can give it, it may be added then non canon, factious theories, trivia, etc.

The articles just need to give more than any wikia.

Zant

I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact Zant wasn't added to the Queue. It had 25 supports, and only 6 opposes. If the 6 opposes cancel out 6 supports that is still 19 supports, far and away passed the required 5 supports needed. -- C2 / CC 16:26, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

votes

how many votes do you need for something to get passed? And i have noriced not very many have chaecked this page because their are very few votes--Ironknuckle1 00:33, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

Good thing it doesn't say in the article...oh wait, it does. --AuronKaizer! 00:36, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

Voting system (yes, again)

I have to disagree with the new voting system where an article needs ten supports to be featured. Such a system would work great on wikipedia, but for our small community, nearly a month has passed since I nominated Mirror of Twilight, during which time it has garnered six supports and gone unopposed. However, despite there being nothing wrong with the article, it can't be featured because we need four more users' approvals before it can legitimately be "featured".

Can we consider putting the old system back into place, or working up a new one? Because getting everybody to vote on featured articles currently consists talk page and shout box harassment and general unpleasantness. Thanks. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 22:24, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

The system should be different altogether. Your suggestion is not an improvement, however. --AuronKaizer! 23:24, April 18, 2010 (UTC)
Haven't suggested anything, simply seeing if people think there should be change. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 23:27, April 18, 2010 (UTC)
I think that just about anyone that is regestered and older then 4 days should be able and requested to vote. I say that because I remember getting kicked after voting for something that I had to have 150 mainspace edits, and this should be easy for everyone. And when I see something that I feel like voting for, I will try voting for it. ~Pgans 14:18, April 19, 2010 (UTC)
That is a pretty bad idea. Anyone can make a second (third, fourth, etc.) account. It actually takes effort to edit though. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 21:10, April 19, 2010 (UTC)
Maybe we need a system like voting for ToC suggestions, where the user in question must be a semi-active contributor with xxx edits or something similar. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 22:57, April 19, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with you that it takes too many votes to be featured given our wiki's size. Maybe something like 6 votes would be enough.--ShutUpNavi (talk) 21:25, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
I was simply putting into place what was agreed upon. I did give over a week to see if anybody would come up with something, and nobody did. But yeah maybe only a 4-6 day wait, and a 6 vote minimum would be enough.-- C2 / CC 22:27, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed, it's taking way too long to get to ten votes. Jedimasterlink (talk) 01:39, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Now this was never made explicitly clear anywhere, but I always though it was obvious that the person who nominates an article, ToC suggestion, or a person for promotion, supported it, and that it needed OTHER people's support. It just seems like a cheep way to get an extra support.

That was kind of what I thought all along. Nominations shouldn't count as supports.

I think that this is more of an issue of common sense, than something that needs a particular rule.

TALK
Articles can't nominate themselves so I agree here. Same goes for the ToC suggestions (it is actually stated on the rules). Promotions on the other hand, are a little different since a person can be nominated or they can nominate themself.

Vote count

I think the required supports for an article to pass should be immediately changed to 5, if not lower. The "6 support" rule was made when there was a lot more active users than there are now. Also, many suggestions have been accidentally passed after 5 supports anyway, and a current suggestion has had 5 supports for months. So who agrees this should be switched? --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 22:58, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

I think that's a pretty good idea. And considering the fact there aren't many active people, it'd be the best thing to do. --BassJapas (Jazzi) 23:01, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
I'll agree with this. -Minish Link 23:29, July 3, 2011 (UTC)
