These are The Infosphere's featured article nominations.

Please nominate articles that you think are worthy of being featured on the Main Page under a level-3 heading (=== [[TheArticle'sName]] ===) below. Be aware that any article may be vetoed by an administrator (just as any article may be passed by an administrator).

How do you vote? Edit this page, and put your name under either {{Infosphere:Accept}} or {{Infosphere:Decline}} for each article nominated. You can do that with a sig template, three tildes (~~~), or simply [[User:YourUsername|YourUsername]]. You have to be registered in order to vote.

You must nominate an article before creating the feature. Seriously.

Guidelines for featured articles[edit]

Featured articles should meet the following criteria.

  • Must have at least one image.
  • Must be at least 500 words.
    • This rule may be ignored if they are on something minor and everything known is described.
  • Should not have been featured before.
  • Should not still be on the What's new? section of the Main Page. Nominations of these pages will be accepted, but they won't actually be featured until they leave this listing.
  • Should not be marked with one of the templates in the Wiki Maintenance category.
  • Probably other stuff, too.

Nominations[edit]

The Nominations section is for articles that you feel are ready to be featured. If they still need work, add them to the Potential candidates section.

Soldier Boys[edit]

Nominated on 13 December, 2009.

Votes to accept: Votes to decline:

Comments[edit]

There's a lot non-comic to be featured first, especially since I've never even touched a Futurama comic it's simply not that interesting to me. Aki 10:06, 16 August 2010 (CEST)

I live in Portugal, and they don't sell those here, so I've never touched one either. (I've read "Futurama Returns", but I didn't touch it, so...) I still think the Soldier Boys article is pretty good, though. (And has a nice image too!) San Saber 14:12, 20 December 2010 (CET)

Potential candidates[edit]

The Potential candidates section is for articles that you feel should be featured, but need a bit more polishing/completeness. If they are probably ready, add them to the Nominations section. Feel free also to move articles in this section to Nominations when you think they're good to go.

Cornwood[edit]

Nominated on 1 March, 2011.

Comments[edit]

The article is relatively thorough but can still be improved. One plus would be an image gallery (many images are already available on the Infosphere but not in that article) and a summary of its history (i. e. the Bender's Game plot). Aki 18:22, 1 March 2011 (CET)

I have to say no. Like you said, it needs a few more pictures and a lot more text. The only developed category is the allusions and it's only tables. There has to be more that can be added. If there isn't, it shouldn't be nominated. Teyrn of Highever 15:25, 2 March 2011 (CET)
I think it should be added to potential candidates instead. Teyrn of Highever 16:32, 2 March 2011 (CET)
My thoughts exactly. Everyone agree Cornwood, Planet Express, and Season 6 should be in the section below? Aki the Nominator, what do you think? Sanfazer 23:47, 2 March 2011 (CET)
True. I moved the aforementioned articles. Aki 12:49, 6 March 2011 (CET)
Excellent... Sanfazer 20:31, 7 March 2011 (CET)
