:Easily. You can delete the hiatus message, and uncomment the feature code. Just change <nowiki>CURRENTWEEK</nowiki> to <nowiki>CURRENTMONTH</nowiki>, and then follow the link to create the small mini-article that will appear on the front page. Fortnightly would be a little more difficult (or impossible). {{User:Buddy13/sig}} 09:32, 27 June 2006 (PDT)

Revision as of 16:32, 27 June 2006

Nominate articles that you think are worthy of being featured on the main page. Please create them below under a level 3 (===Level 3===) heading.

How do you vote? Edit this page, and put your name under either "Accept" or "Decline" for each article nominated — You can do that with a sig template, three tildes (~~~), or simply [[User:Buddy13|Buddy13]].

Guidelines for Featured Articles

Featured articles should meet the following criteria:

  • Must have at least one image
  • Must be at least 500 words
  • Probably other stuff, too

Nominations

Is there a way to modify this feature so that the articles are monthly or fortnightly? I think it would help the feature work better. - Quolnok 20:51, 25 June 2006 (PDT)

Easily. You can delete the hiatus message, and uncomment the feature code. Just change CURRENTWEEK to CURRENTMONTH, and then follow the link to create the small mini-article that will appear on the front page. Fortnightly would be a little more difficult (or impossible).

Mom

It's a decent article. It could stand a little expansion, but the pictures work well. Although I might want to show a better contrast with pics of her motherly public face to counterbalance the private personna in the picture that's already there. Buddy13 FW16.png

Decapodians

This page is definately the best of the race pages; lots of pics, lots of info, almost 5k, just a nice, solid page.

Philip J. Fry

From what I can tell, there were only three featured articles so far. Fry wasn't one of them, I guess the article wasn't that good then.

Production

While it doesn't have images, meaning it can't really be featured, I feel that there should be a note somewhere on the main page about Futurama's return. - Quolnok 20:51, 25 June 2006 (PDT)

Well, Production is already a link on the main page, just below where the featured articles should go. However, feel free to add a "News" section or just stick a note somewheres. News was slow in coming when this site was started, so a News section was decided against, but now that something is really coming, it might be worth it to add a News area to the main page...

Futurama (video game)

It definately has a lot of info, plus several images.

Xmas Time Is Fear

Purely here to represent the comics. I'd say its probably the best of the comic articles, and a good comic.

I think it's a great idea to feature a Comic article. Some fans of the show don't even know about the comics. Buddy13 FW16.png 09:32, 27 June 2006 (PDT)
