Featured Article is a place to show the articles that make this wiki an interesting and engaging experience for visitors. It will also encourage wiki members to improve the quality of existing works. The rules and guidelines are a work-in-progress; if you have suggestions, please leave them on the Talk Page.
So, what makes a bit of media eligible for nomination? Here are the guidelines:
- The media nominated must be hosted in this wiki.
You have something that meets the above rules, so now what? Well, on the first day of the month, post a link to your nominated article and sign your nomination with ~~~~! Pretty easy, right?
There is one more rule to keep this from becoming one big popularity contest. After the winning media is announced, any article in that category becomes ineligible for nominations for the next two months. For example, the article of an Relena was the selected media for March, 2010. That means that for the next two voting cycles in April and May, images from the Kingdom Hearts: The Keyblade War Characters Category were ineligible for nomination and would be dismissed if suggested. Likewise, the article of Xehanort would have also been ineligible, even though he appears in the Character category as well. Images with more than one category will only have one of them "blocked" to make sure there is a fair selection of categories available. There will always be two categories which images cannot be nominated from; they are listed at the top of the nomination block.
The category or categories are also considered "locked-in" from the beginning of the month, so don't bother changing them to get around the rules. Trying to edit article categories to suit your whims will only attract the wrath of staff and admins, and certainly get your nomination privileges revoked.
Editors have one vote; they must put their vote and signature, (~~~~) underneath the nominee of their choice. Those who nominated article can have their nomination counted as their vote and do not need to post again; if they want to change, they simply need to sign under another nominee and their vote will be moved.
In the event of ties, we will hold tiebreakers beginning on the 20th of the month.
On the last day of the month, votes will be tallied, and the winner will become the next Featured Article!
