Featuring different things

I decided to start a new section to discuss about making changes to the featured articles. Rather then featuring olny people, how about we featured different things like locations, ships, weapons, history, etc, etc but it has to be referenced, and well-written. What do you think

Joekido (talk) 21:09, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

We do have the possibility to nominate and vote for non-character articles. And we've already featured some.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  21:14, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

As I said in the section above, I think we should feature 3 articles per month, and we should allow only one of those articles to be about a character. At least for awhile (as in a couple years) anyways, since later we might not need to force people to vote for non-character articles (or we might run out of decent articles for them).

Archiving The Talk Page

This talk page is lagging and has more than 200 posts. So, since JSD deiced to take the discussion to a forum, I will archive the talk page tomorrow, unless somebody believes that the discussion is still active.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  09:37, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

After Forum:Removal of Featured Articles is done, I maybe was gonna start up the section above (Featuring Different Things) again, depending on how many articles are unfeatured. So I'd appreciate it if you just that one section on the page when you archived it. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 12:03, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, don't worry, I was planning to leave that anyway.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  12:14, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Section Headings

We should make sure to make all of the section headings different from each other, otherwise "Featured Article Polls#Voting" or "Polls#Nominations" will not go to the only active section of the polls, but rather whichever use of the section heading is closest to the top. We should use something like "Voting, July Part 1". Though, I have no idea how to handle things like articles that are voted on twice. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 13:21, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

That's why you should use the main header and not the number 3 and 4 headers.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  13:47, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

It automatically redirects you to "#Voting" after you've voted, which brings me to the section I don't want to look at. It's not something I choose to link to. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 13:56, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah I know :/ Well we could just number them eg

===Voting- September, Part 1===, ===Voting September, Part 2===

or even simpler,

===Voting- 1===, ===Voting- 2===

and so on. I don't particularly care, if you want to change them, go ahead.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:02, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

How about we just do it like that after the next time the page is archived?

Also, as a sidenote, why don't we keep a running archive? Like only keep the current poll and the most recently completed poll on the page, and add the others to the archive as time goes on. And archive tabs should cover an entire year before a new archive tab is made. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 13:48, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

Personally, I prefer the way we're doing it right now.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:28, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

So what are we gonna do?  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  17:00, September 30, 2013 (UTC)

Featuring Pages About The Series

I firmly believe that we shouldn't nominate pages about chapters and episodes since we have the {{Happenings}} template. Do you agree or not?  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  10:37, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree. Chapter and Episode articles should be off-limits. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 13:43, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

So can I add it as a rule? >_>  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  06:14, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Agreed.Vaztalk 11:22,9/29/2013

Added. And I also added that we can't nominate articles in the {{Content}} template because we had an edit war about that some time ago and unofficially decided not to nominate these articles.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  11:41, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

New Poll Format

Why is this the only page that doesn't use the new poll template? Let's start using it.   Galaxy 9000   01:47, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Sure. Lelouch Di Britannia Talk Page  03:39, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

No, no. It won't be convenient at all.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  06:58, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Why wouldn't it be? Sanji in Unlimited AdventureRainbowShifter 07:56, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I'm pretty much the only one that makes the new polls and I can tell that it wouldn't be convenient because we don't need text above every poll, just the opening and closing date. That said I also have to say that it would look terribly ugly.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:55, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

You don't have to have text above every poll. The new poll template looks way better than randomly formatted sections.   Galaxy 9000   14:58, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

NO just NO ... the new poll looks really bad.--Roranoa zoro Talk|||15:01,10/28/2013

Well, if this talk page decides to use the new template, I still say wait two months until we make the second archive in December because if the page is half normal polls and have template polls, that will definitely look bad. But I still say no.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  15:03, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Things need to be consistent throughout the wiki, so yes. Explain how it looks bad Rora, and maybe we can apply your ideas to improving the template design.   Galaxy 9000   15:04, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Opinions don't need back-up.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  15:18, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Back-up leads to better discussion, which helps the wiki in the end. I would really appreciate actual discussion from you and Rora on the poll templates' issues.   Galaxy 9000   15:20, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I would appreciate it if you gave your reasons instead.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  15:22, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

See...  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  05:39, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

New poll format would make it a bitch because you can't just click edit on the section you want to vote for. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 06:11, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Already gave my reasons above Staw. It's called consistency. As I said before, back-up your opinion, so the discussion can lead to actual analysis rather than "nuh uh, uh-huh" types of stuff.

@JSD: I'll ask Sewil if there's a way to fix that.   Galaxy 9000   01:50, November 3, 2013 (UTC)

That's not consistency.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:28, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Anyways, the poll format allows for headings, so I don't see a reason not to switch. [1].   Galaxy 9000   22:10, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

I still don't see a seperate edit button for each choise on your test poll.Vaztalk 22:37,11/12/2013

^what Vaz said.--Roa[T]{MH,R!,-06:03,11/13/2013-}

The template is small. It really isn't that hard to edit it.   Galaxy 9000   07:02, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

On featured polls there are like 5-7 options and about 20 signatures. Now, think about having to find the right spot to sign between all these in source mode...Vaztalk 09:08,11/13/2013

I agree with Vaz, for exactly the reason he mentioned. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 03:25, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

It would be a pain for source editing. Sanji in Unlimited AdventureRainbowShifter 18:00, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

Right, whatever. Looked for a way to fix it, but there's no way for now. Closing this.   Galaxy 9000   05:27, December 10, 2013 (UTC)
