Revision as of 00:49, June 2, 2014


Here's where you can nominate and vote on articles to be featured on the front page.

  • To nominate, simply write your nomination in bold under the most recently dated section, with a brief reason why if you wish, and sign your posts with ~~~~. A nomination is equal to a vote, and it is one nomination per user.
  • To vote, simply sign with # ~~~~ under the nominees to symbolize your support, with a brief reason why if you wish. You can vote for as many as two nominees at a time. You can always change it at anytime, until the selection date (the 1st day of the month).
  • Once a nominee is selected, we'll clear the nominees section to start a clear slate. You can nominate the same article again one month later, eg. unselected nominations in January may be repeated only from March. We call it a transition period.
  • You can give your Comments in the section below, but any claims of supporting a nominee does not count until you sign under a nominee section.

Here are some things to consider when nominating:

  • Is the article detailed enough?
  • Does it have red links or links to disambigs? If so, can they be fixed?

If your article has any problems with the above criteria, please either refrain from nominating it or fix it up so it is up to scratch. Remember that the Featured Article is representing the best this wiki has to offer, not just a popularity contest.

If you wonder how a Featured Article should look like, you can view the list of outstanding articles on our Wiki page, Good Articles, and read the articles in the section called "List of Good Articles".

If your nomination has no votes after being up for four days, you may remove it and still use it next month. However, this offer is only good for the next four days, afterwards your nomination stays.

Tia-Lewise is the acting head of the Votes For Featured Articles. Please see her if there are any issues to be dealt with.

Take care and happy voting!

Great choice this month, guys (I am however going to give Hexedy a royal kick up the ass for messing up the page while I was away xD ). Let's see if we can keep it up for next month. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 13:53, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

  • Final Fantasy VI — a game article hasn't been featured for a while.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:33, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
  • SeeD - I quite like this article, though the intro does have spoilers, but if that's an issue we could just rewrite it or something. SetzerLeonhart (talk) 14:53, March 3, 2014 (UTC)
  1. Monterossa (talk) 20:28, March 5, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Spoilers are no issue, they can be moved. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 16:26, March 7, 2014 (UTC)
  3. A little too soon for a VI article again. Can't believe I just typed that. Fëasindë Peth 21:13, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

  5. I won't vote against the crowd. JC Holy Knight (talk) 02:12, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
  • CollectaCard- What with Curtain Call coming out in Japan on the 24th of April, I thought an article on this would be good- no spoilers (but then, does TR:FF have any that we don't already know?) and has stuff relating to the series. Might be a mad idea for an entry, but it's just an idea TMG- Why? (talk) 22:46, March 7, 2014 (UTC)


Because we know there'll be an April Fool's joke again, so let's make it the second. Also, I apologise for not paying enough attention to the voting last month, as we ended up with an article that does need improvement. Nevertheless, I've done what I can with the main page display, and I hope it looks okay. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 10:42, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

My bad with the Chocobo thing, my browser didn't load the FA icon. Also, don't worry about April Fools for the FA. I have something planned separate :) Drake Clawfang (talk) 20:43, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

No worries Drake :) looking forward to April 1st! Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 20:51, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

I'm unsure about CollectaCard, it's just one big list and there isn't much information to use for display on the main page. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 22:53, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

That's why I said it was a mad idea. I knew no one would vote for it, but I just wanted to mention a TR article, and state that the sequel was coming out soon. I would have said the TR:FF page, but there are a couple of links that go nowhere, meaning that the pages need to be created in order to improve it. I hope that's understandable? TMG- Why? (talk) 23:01, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

I'd like to have a decent Theatrhythm page up, so I'll have a scout for something and see what we can find :) Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 23:05, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

Great voting last month, everyone. Let's keep it up. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 00:03, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Via Infinito still needs the "enemies by floor" thing. I started doing it once but I forget what happened to it. I thought I saved it somewhere on my computer but I'm not seeing it. The individual enemy articles can be used as a source.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 02:45, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Via Infinito freaked me out when i first played X-2. it was so dark and scary.. and the Mega Tonberry oh my god. my heart would jump. its funny how all the nominations are for X/X-2. seems everyones looking forward to the remaster--Arciele Spira (talk) 08:10, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Yuna needs her "Stats" FFX section filled if it is to be featured and be written according to the MoS.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 09:42, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

FFX doesn't really work in the same way. Do we have it for other X articles? I guess characters have default stats? Or does that depend on what nodes are already activated? 16:30, February 1, 2014 (UTC)
They all have basic stats (starting stats) but the endgame stats are up to the player. Monterossa (talk) 16:34, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

The aeons' ability lists could probably have descriptions of the abilities added?Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:11, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Well the item requirements should probably go on the Skill/Blk Mag page etc. -- that's where these abilities are covered. Then I'd say the table on the Aeon article should list "!Name||Skillset||Required items", where the name column links to the place on the skillset article.
Also for some reason there's no list for Attributes and cost on the Aeon article. 16:30, February 1, 2014 (UTC)
Yuna's article still lacks Artniks information and her Theatrhythm stats table for 3DS is incomplete.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 21:03, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, I thought it was complete. Will set about improving it soon. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 12:57, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

Happy new year, everyone! Now get voting or I cut you. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 01:50, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Selphie contains a stub on Airborne Brigade, unfortunately. I do support Ruby Weapon though; it's a lot less bloated and walkthrough like than Emerald's. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 20:36, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

I hope Ruby doesn't win. Because then I'll have to bother reformatting the page to the new standard, and updating the enemy template to the new standard. 20:43, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Sucks to be you if it does. Not my problem. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 02:41, January 2, 2014 (UTC)
It would probably suck to be Jeppo too. He'll likely be the one to have to rewrite the AI to standard. 02:55, January 2, 2014 (UTC)
What's the current issue with enemy articles, in any case? Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 22:45, January 2, 2014 (UTC)
99% of FFXIV enemies are missing :D Monterossa (talk) 01:26, January 3, 2014 (UTC)
Lateness is late. Mono Drive is the new agreed upon standard. Though that doesn't include an updated enemy infobox. An updated enemy infobox, besides formatting and coding improvements-- for VII I need to add the Restorative element, and Hidden. Then I'll add a wildcard element because some enemies are weak to Confusion status abilities, or absorb instant death abilities as examples. Ruby Weapon himself absorbs Hidden. The statuses will be formatted like IX does them. Back damage multiplier will be included as default, and fairly importantly so will the missing Luck stat. Eh, I'll get to work. 00:38, January 22, 2014 (UTC)
I've never seen this! I'm not sure I get the formations box though, what do the numbers mean on the left? Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 11:00, January 22, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it's not in wide use because that was a prototype, though approved and therefore I need to get around to sorting out our VII articles. But there was a matter I had to handle first-- sorting out the Locations sections on the VII articles. That is a long matter, because I'm still in the planning stages of giving each area a name to reference it by.
The numbers are just the IDs assigned by the game. The unique identifier for each formation. Maybe it's not clear? The locations table include the numbers so you can see which formations are fought where. VII is full of dummied formations. 21:43, January 23, 2014 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Good to know! Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 21:48, January 23, 2014 (UTC)
Maybe List of Final Fantasy VII Enemy Formations could be an article, just to explain how it all works, and it could be linked to.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 23:50, January 23, 2014 (UTC)
This was originally the plan. And still could be and probably will be. There hasn't been a proper on-wiki discussion and all I remember is someone disagreeing in IRC. JBed (talk) 23:54, January 23, 2014 (UTC)
It's a shame there was a disagreement, I think this could be potentially very useful. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 23:58, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

I think the Ultima Weapon article should have at least an image of the iOS version incarnation. Guess it needs a whole tab? Same stats as GBA but updated appearance. (It is possible to play it so far as to get a pic though, in light of the fatal glitch.)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 18:26, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

Believe the glitch has been fixed now. I reckon we could probably get an image in the next few days. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 19:05, January 23, 2014 (UTC)
