So featured articles...

Well, our current one's been up for more than a week, so I'm wondering...

  1. Ought we get a new one (aka, oh... Ash?) out there?
  2. Should we have some sort of regular schedule to the featuring?
  3. Will you guys ever nominate and vote on them quickly enough to feature them weekly? Monthly? Bi-monthly? How often?
  4. And if not... well, when should we go back to the normal MftE? TTEchidna 04:51, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
I think if it's simple enough to nominate articles, then we could see more use from this. I had to dig a bit through the links to find the other nominations... would a simple "Nominate an article" link next to the "read more" and "more featured articles" links be a good idea, perhaps? We could have an article with not only a list of nominations, but some simple instructions for how to nominate. Make it more accessible. We've got plenty of articles to nominate, not enough people looking for them.
At this rate, a once-a-month nomination might work out nicely. With more activity, I'd say nominating faster then that would be nice. I personally think having featured articles is a fun thing, MftE makes for a good news feed, but that's about it. Featured articles give the front page more... appeal. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 08:35, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
I completely agree. Monthly featuring would work great, and it makes the main page look much better. And if on one of the months we don't have a new one, we can use Poké Ball or Legendary Pokémon, since they never made it to the main page, right? And there are already many good nominees. --electAbuzzzz (TALK) 08:57, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
So we choose the next on the 21st? TTEchidna 23:44, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
We can choose the next one whenever, I'd say. Then start up a cycle starting there. It's not a big deal if Brock gets featured for a little longer or shorter then the other featured articles we'll inevitably have. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 06:08, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Or, either just wait until one comes again, and base a cycle on that time, or leave it up for a month, then take it down, and post a new one whenever a new one comes. Theininen 18:50, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Move updating

We shouldn't count Struggle, Super Glitch, Secret Power (it doesn't need the template) and Vacuum-Cut as moves, so should we subtract 4 from that? However, we SHOULD count Wide Slash as a move, because in MD it's a TM. TorchicBlaziken 16:02, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
