Were you wanting to nominate features? See the following:

  • WT:FA/A - Featured Articles (for articles)
  • WT:FA/M - Featured Media (for images and videos)
  • WT:FA/C - Featured Critters (for the little images at the top of the Main Page next to the logo)

Overhaul Edit

As may be obvious, I have given the whole Featuring process a bit of an overhaul. You can now nominate for three different features on three talk pages:

  • WT:FA/A - Featured Articles (articles)
  • WT:FA/M - Featured Media (images and videos)
  • WT:FA/C - Featured Critters (the images at the top of the Main Page)

These are set up so that a daily rotation can be used, or perhaps some day in the future, randomised upon page viewing. Only FM is active at the moment, and the FC is set to a Hallow's End event special, and the FA isn't really "final". I went around the wiki looking for extra, good articles that hadn't been nominated at sampled them. Feel free to dispute and nominate others on the FA talk page!

Okay, my overhaul is essentially complete. You can nominate anything for removal, replacement or addition on the talk pages - navihate using the links on the right :) I hope the articles I selected are up to scratch, but if not, feel free to suggets replacements on WT:FA/A.

Overhaul Mark II Edit

The featured stuff have undergone another overhaul! Now they are randomly selected, which makes it much easier to add and remove articles. More have been added to each rotation, whilst a couple of dubious ones have been removed. Kirkburn  talk  contr 13:51, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

The poll Edit

You can vote multiple times with no restriction. Shouldn't a poll be bound with a cookie / ip?  - Zurgat talk / cont  09:08, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

out-of-date content Edit

Todays article is the Lich King himself. I am not sure where the text comes from as it doesn't match the page but it says "The Lich King will be the main antagonist in the upcoming expansion World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King." which is a bit out of date now.

You are correct. But then again, the whole featured media section desparately needs an overhaul.IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAMBER(RΘCK) 08:42, October 28, 2009 (UTC)
I've gone through and updated all articles, and added some Cataclysm related ones. It does need more of an update though. Meanwhile, the featured media part is now much easier to maintain - it's now based on the gallery slideshow tag. Kirkburn  talk  contr 12:25, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
