Suggested for future reference[edit]

Just going to put a list of suggested ones here for future reference:

A treasure or ship part. The longest treasure/ship part articles:

- GP

I have to clear this before we continue: Do we accept recently rotating articles to be featured again?--Prezintenden 16:02, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

I'd say yes; we're sort of starting all over again. GP 16:46, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
Right.--Prezintenden 17:22, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Decision time, methinks[edit]

I say we just go quantitatively, adding up the votes; support is +1, oppose is -1. If that's the case, it's like this right now:

And now for the sig (of DOOM). GP 18:27, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Right. I'll get to this feature.--Prezintenden
I already did when I saw this. It is a copy + paste mismatch but it is Pretty good.~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ 11:36, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
I changed Prez's added sentence to the text about the stage from the article, and corrected a few errors, added a few links. GP 15:52, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Changing feature to Scale, the most voted for. GP 16:38, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Got problems. Don't think votes are positive enough on any to warrant featuring, and it's been a while. GP
You feel Bulbmin is a spoiler, but won't suggest anything else. We need a new feature. I think Bulbmin should be featured, but it needs discussion as to whether it's too much of a spoiler. GP


Okay, the Wistful Wild has been Featured article for over a month now, I think we need a new article; Hocotate or Pikmin (species) perhaps? RWAR! ~JOSHAGozira.pngZILLA!!!~ AND IMAFIRINMAHLAZOR!!!

Pikmin themselves would be rather lame to have as a feature, and Hocotate is an okay page. I'm for the planet.--Prezintenden

Hocotate would be nice, what about the featured image though?--FREAK ~GameGame Freak Logo.png Freak~OUT!

I nominate that image Bulbmin & Young or whtevr as Featured image. I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

Iunno, I don't think Hocotate is written very well, especially not before the changes I just made. We've featured a game, a plant, enemies, areas, a character, even an obstacle, but never a treasure or a ship part. Maybe one of those is good enough. Or how about a particular [[:category:pikmin species|Pikmin species]]? GP

The treasures articles seem too short, maybe Pikmin family? I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.
What about the Positron Generator or the Analog Computer? There well written..... aren't they? RWAR! ~JOSHAGozira.pngZILLA!!!~ AND IMAFIRINMAHLAZOR!!!
I vote PG I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.
The longest treasure/ship part articles are, I think:
I think Pikmin family would be good, though; I just suggested treasures instead since Prez has some problem with it. Also, we could feature a cave, 2-player level or Challenge Mode level sometime - just giving ideas for the future here. Other (fairly) long and quite interesting articles are (longest first):
I'd happily go with Pikmin Planet, that or Candypop bud, Gate is just boring...RWAR! ~JOSHAGozira.pngZILLA!!!~ AND IMAFIRINMAHLAZOR!!!

Spirits!*laughs maniacally*--FREAK ~GameGame Freak Logo.png Freak~OUT!

Pik Planet I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

Hazards. Twinmold.pngSnakeboss14Twinmold.png

Planet and Hazards are fine, but I'm slightly biased towards Planet due to that whole bottom section, being ...very well written... I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

SPIRITS!or Pik Planet! --FREAK ~GameGame Freak Logo.png Freak~OUT!

Vote? I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.
Agreed, Pikplanet, Candypop, Positron and Hazards will do fine. RWAR! ~JOSHAGozira.pngZILLA!!!~ AND IMAFIRINMAHLAZOR!!!
Agree to vote? I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.
Well, planet was mentioned the most times, and I'm fine with that too - why not just feature that, speed up the process? GP
Sounds good, and I think we may want to put some of that bottom section in the featured box too... (The comparison to Earth thing) I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

Too long[edit]

Nominations are just taking too long, so I put a list of suggested articles at the top of this page (most by me, but hey, I couldn't find any more suggestions from people). If anyone has any more suggestions, add them, and we could use them later if not now. I'm asking for a quick vote on what to change the article to now. We're looking for lots of content, a well-written introduction, good images, and a generally mature article with lots of links and headings and nice paragraphing and everything. I say Hocotate, or Main Engine, as we haven't featured a ship part yet. GP

...Wow, we've never featured a cave. GP

Ship parts seem boring to me, and don't seem to be the right thing for a featured article somehow. I reworded Pellet a bit, and would vote for that.
/Not really sure what you wanted me to do.--Prezintenden
Well, five people chose the Waterwraith already, but I think a cave should be featured next time. The only problem is is that if we want to feature caves, the only pic we can use is the one of Olimar next to the entrance since we have no specific pics for the caves.--FREAK ~GameGame Freak Logo.png Freak~OUT!
Use one from inside the cave. Look down a few of the walkthroughs, I've taken screenshots for some. Dream Den comes to mind. I'll feature Waterwraith tomorrow seeing as people are voting for it. GP

I like the 1st sublevel of the snagret hole, but the image should be from the cave thats nominated... make sure its a sublevel thats pretty unique or sums up what the cave is about (like metal abyss for subterranian complex) and that whould be the best.

The Waterwraith has been the featured article for a while. I think it's about time we get a new featured article and a new featured image as well. Vol (Talk) 21:41, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
I'm the featured image manager. I thought of changing it, but I almost never see the main page, so I forgot. Don't worry, I'll change it. Twinmold.pngSnakeboss14Twinmold.png
Okay, thanks. Vol (Talk)

Featured Article Nomination[edit]

I've had 2-Player Mode nominated for ages. Vol (Talk)

I'll stick this page in the sitenotice to get more interest. GP
Good Idea Vol (Talk)

Can we come up with something please?[edit]

Smokey Progg's been featured since April. I don't really know much about how this whole process works, but can we pick one of the nominations at some point? --Artwork of the Sweet Dreamer.JelloratbobArtwork of the Sweet Dreamer. 23:35, 16 August 2011 (EDT)

I'm going to feature Mamuta, since taking a for as +1 and against as -1, it has the highest score. GP 15:01, 19 August 2011 (EDT)
I'll also move nominations with score <= 0 to the 'not featured' section soon-ish, if there are no objections. GP 15:10, 19 August 2011 (EDT)
Ok, thanks! --Artwork of the Sweet Dreamer.JelloratbobArtwork of the Sweet Dreamer. 19:40, 19 August 2011 (EDT)
