LGPedia talk:Featured articles

I developed most of these ideas out of discussion at talk:main Page/redesign. Please feel welcome to elaborate or suggest further guidelines.--JayHenry 13:09, 4 January 2007 (CST)

I was looking through that old page, and I'm surprised no one's come up with a "badge" of sorts for already-featured articles. I tried coming up with one on my talk page, but I doubt it's really working and I'd like to know what everyone thinks about having a sort of "certificate" for these articles.--Pheon 20:27, 30 June 2007 (CDT)


Dee has been feature nominated for some time now, anybody think it should be the next? I'm up for HSAO too, but last I heard, that wasn't ready. OwenIsCool 17:00, 4 April 2007 (CDT)

I think HSAO is a more in depth artcle, but Deemontreal certainly would make a good feature. -misty 11:53, 14 May 2007 (CDT)
I'd love to feature Deemontreal. It could use some clean-up and lyrics. And we should see if we could find more information about the guy. It'd be good to feature it because this has actually become the Most Viewed lonelygirl15 fan video with over 800,000 views!!! I'm guessing that's not something a lot of fans know. Also a good feature because it links to a lot of other interesting content that's a little hard to find. --JayHenry 12:32, 14 May 2007 (CDT)

Suggestion for next article

Not a specific suggestion, but how about if we feature a page about a fan group, such as HSAO? --Brucker 15:24, 8 January 2007 (CST)

I agree with that one :)--Iris2009 16:01, 8 January 2007 (CST)

Deemontreal seems like a good suggestion for a feature article as it is a creation "outside" of the lg15 fan/viewer world (you know what I mean, not a forumite, a chatter or a commenter, etc. as far as I know). It is interesting to see someone's take who is outside of the fan/viewer community.(It is a clever video and song, too.) Ogog 16:33, 8 January 2007 (CST)

HSA--How nice and flattering. However, since viewer-created material is readily available, perhaps consider using it when there are no other "breaking news of excitiement." This is not to downplay viewer created material (I think it is neat-o), however, with weekly features, I am sure fan groups will come in handy down the road. Ogog 16:40, 8 January 2007 (CST)

Wheee, I'd be honored if LG15 Soundtrack made it to featured. Could probably use some formatting though, just to make it more official-looking (like the brand-spanking-new Main Page!) OwenIsCool 03:35, 11 January 2007 (CST)

I like the idea of featuring the LG15 soundtrack, just because it's cool, useful and a lot of hard work went into it. I'll try to think of a way to spiffy it up, per OIC's suggestion.--JayHenry 21:50, 11 January 2007 (CST)

How does it look on the mainpage now? :)--Iris2009 14:15, 17 January 2007 (CST)

I am very much against the use of LadyLazurus as a featured article because doing so would seem to endorse their content to the average viewer. The fact that they are trying to jack the cassie concept could just lead to more confusion with the newbies with regards to cassie. We only now have about what? 4 of them? Especially now that there is more evidence that CiW is related to Alli D's crew...thats Nikki B's real name. In other words there is more evidence than ever that CiW is canon. I am all for promoting fan produced content I just don't think that LadyLazurus has garnered enough of their own Mojo to warrant the attention. Additionally, I don't see them as being particularly supportive of others outside of their arc. I know they are related but I would be more comfortable with Guillotine Calamity being featured. I haven't been keeping up with everthing but I would nix this suggestion as well if Sister's immediate vids deal with the cassie concept. Additionally I am not fond of nomimations originating from an IP address. Also, I think the nomination should come from someone other than the PM or someone intimately involved with the project. It's one thing to work on the page yourself..ehem..cause if you don't it often won't get done..but it's another to nominate your own work for a spotlight. This leaves the article not very neutral which in this case because of the cassie concept I say absolutely not to the featuring. I mean heck..they nominated it and then did about 50 edits to the page...kinda backwards if you ask me. Someone just wants some promotion for promotion sake. Any other questions? --LordGreystoke422 13:05, 28 January 2007 (CST)
Is anyone seriously considering LadyLazarus though? I mean COME ON, God I sure hope not. That'd just be idioitic. That's just them wanting free promotion. 19:07, 28 January 2007 (CST)

Maybe time for new Articale? Maybe?HSAO--Iris2009 16:32, 6 February 2007 (CST)

Tachyon. crowcity

I'd really like to see Down The Rabbit Hole: The Hunt For Bree featured. It'd be a nice change from featuring people and, well, I did a lot of work on it...--JayHenry 15:49, 9 March 2007 (CST)
Anybody else have thoughts?? --JayHenry 16:18, 12 March 2007 (CDT)

May I nominate Mixed Media. Maybe not for right away but maybe when a few more shows have gone out. The page obviously needs work, but just an idea. Coffeeaddict 08:45, 4 April 2007 (CDT)

I agree. I think Mixed Media could be a good feature. The page needs a little work, but you're right, after a few more eps maybe we'll be ready. OwenIsCool 17:00, 4 April 2007 (CDT)
It looks like it's possible that there aren't going to be any more shows, but I LIke featuring it. -misty 11:57, 14 May 2007 (CDT)

With all the work adding fanfic. I thought LG15 Spin-offs would be a good featured article. It's time to get rid of the list of new girls, since it is no longer relevent. -misty 10:22, 11 May 2007 (CDT)

As much as I like the fanfic page, and honestly, as much work as I've put into it, I think it would be great to feature the Spin-Offs page. However, I am against this nomination. I feel like the featured article should be a chance for a page to be put on the frontpage that would not otherwise be there, but the LG Spin-Offs is already linked to from the main page. Sorry Misty. --Zoey 12:57, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
Good point Zoey, I didn't consider that. -misty 11:57, 14 May 2007 (CDT)
I'd like to Nominate the LG Crime Report - it's a fun article that gives a brief but detailed look into the questionable acts of BDJ (among others)! If not for the next article, then later, perhaps. (maybe after they do something REALLY bad?) --Pheon 18:04, 30 June 2007 (CDT)
Ooo, GREAT idea, Pheon! I back you up 100% on this. The crime report is (and always has been) one of my favorite articles that I would LOVE to see featured! Love, -R- 19:22, 11 July 2007 (CDT)
