Discussion[edit]

Wouldn't it be cool having an article every week or fortnight with a Main Page spotlight? Taking a random, okay article and push people to try to make it perfect? Best case scenario, it's standard to have that article be featured a few weeks later. What say you? - akitalk 15:16, 15 June 2011 (CEST)

Wikipedia has a number of collaborations where an article is nominated and the community works to improve it. I can't see why we couldn't do one per week. -- DeepSpaceHomer 15:37, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
Agreed. <joe>LET'S DO IT!!!</joe> - akitalk 19:01, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
Infosphere:Spotlight article now exists. As a first article I choose Lord Nibbler, because I have been trying to make it perfect myself for the past few days. So, well, basically, it has a chance of being awesome by the end of the week, which would make up for a great start. :) Any suggestions of future spotlight articles? - akitalk 19:31, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
How about Calculon? It could use some refinement seeing as the quotes section is a lot longer than like, the rest of the article. -- DeepSpaceHomer 19:37, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
Ah, yes, the Calculon article would certainly need some work. Approved! Any more suggestions now that we're on it?
Btw, I made a template to have on the top of the current spotlight article. Check the top of Lord Nibbler. - akitalk 19:41, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
What about Dwight Conrad? - akitalk 19:55, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
That's a good one. I'll nominate Hutch Waterfall. -- DeepSpaceHomer 19:57, 15 June 2011 (CEST)
Ah, good one. I didn't realise it was so small an article. Added. Now we're stored up until week 28! - akitalk 20:00, 15 June 2011 (CEST
What about Cornwood? It's the only article remaining on the potential candidates list. Teyrn of Highever 01:41, 16 June 2011 (CEST)
Added. - akitalk 02:25, 16 June 2011 (CEST)
This is a great idea! This way, we can nominate pages that are out of date or stubby, and they can become awesome! --Buddy 00:15, 16 June 2011 (CEST)
Yay! People agree with me! - akitalk 01:24, 16 June 2011 (CEST)

What about URL? It's really small and messy, and it would be nice to have it clean before the release of "Law and Oracle". - akitalk 16:07, 16 June 2011 (CEST)

My parents used to tell me the exact same thing about my room. Let's add it. -- DeepSpaceHomer 16:21, 16 June 2011 (CEST)
Leela's article. While not short, it is underdeveloped for a major character. Teyrn of Highever 19:21, 16 June 2011 (CEST)
Sounds excellent. Most of the primary articles unfortunately are. - akitalk 20:32, 16 June 2011 (CEST)
If we are going to do URL, we might as well do Smitty at or near the same time. Teyrn of Highever 15:27, 19 June 2011 (CEST)

So how are people supposed to know which article has a spotlight? Is there supposed to be something on the main page that hasn't been implemented yet or am I just missing something? Teyrn of Highever 00:52, 19 June 2011 (CEST)

I experimented somewhat on that, but couldn't find a good way. In short, it should be mentioned on the main page but it isn't yet. It shouldn't really outshine the featured article. Do you have any ideas of design? - akitalk 01:07, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
Not really. I'm not the person to ask about design; I'm more of the mindless repetitive tasks person. Teyrn of Highever 01:29, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
I see. I might get onto it tonight or tomorrow, but not right now. If someone else wants to, they can do it. - akitalk 13:45, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
Maybe DeepSpace has some ideas. Teyrn of Highever 15:26, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
Well, the only thing I can think is move the Featured Article above "Upcoming episode", and place "Spotlight" right under the FA. At least from a design perspective, it would focus the attention on the idea of the Infosphere as a database by making the FA and the Spotlight more prominent. And anyone who is just coming here to find out the next episode shouldn't have any problem scrolling a little bit. -- DeepSpaceHomer 16:17, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
What say you guys of this example? - akitalk 16:55, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
I like it. -- DeepSpaceHomer 17:03, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
Um, isn't "week's" misspelled? Teyrn of Highever 17:13, 19 June 2011 (CEST)
Uh, yeah. :| So, I implement this now. :D - akitalk 17:23, 19 June 2011 (CEST)

So, new week and URL is the new spotlight article. I think the Lord Nibbler article went really well, FA quality? - akitalk 01:13, 20 June 2011 (CEST)

I'd say the experiment was a success. On a related topic, what do you think about Smitty being a spotlight? I asked earlier but I don't know if you saw it. Teyrn of Highever 01:28, 20 June 2011 (CEST)
Ah, I totally missed that, sorry. I think it's a good idea, but maybe not so tight after URL? - akitalk 01:46, 20 June 2011 (CEST)
When isn't really an issue. As long as we improve some articles. Teyrn of Highever 02:37, 20 June 2011 (CEST)
What about the Robot Devil article, it isn't very developped. --Superbender 18:07, 2 July 2011 (CEST)
Sounds good. - akitalk 15:25, 4 July 2011 (CEST)

2011[edit]

July[edit]

Making a subsection for the new month, to keep things somewhat organized. 15:42, 4 July 2011 (CEST)

I suggest Sally. Not a bad article, but extremely small considering that she's had a few semi-major roles, for example in "Yo Leela Leela". - akitalk 12:45, 22 July 2011 (CEST)
How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back is pretty weak for an episode article. It could definitely be improved. -- DeepSpaceHomer 00:29, 28 July 2011 (CEST)

Joey Mousepad is a pretty short and uninteresting article. I reckon it should be improved . - UnrealLegend 05:20, 30 July 2011 (CEST)

Booked up for week 36! - akitalk 20:49, 8 August 2011 (CEST)

August[edit]

The latest one (Hutch Waterfall) was a big fail, but at least it's not a that important article. Next up is Turanga Leela, which is important. I'll get right to it. - akitalk 20:49, 8 August 2011 (CEST)

Given that I'm the one who nominated it, I don't know why I didn't work on it. Laziness, I assume. In any case, they can't all be winners, so I figure no reason to despair yet. -- DeepSpaceHomer 21:38, 8 August 2011 (CEST)
Don't worry, it's not like anyone has to work on the articles. I should have too, but I was busy this week (and I will be busy this week as well, unfortunately). If you want, you can recommend it to be spotlight for week 37 or something as well. - akitalk 01:38, 9 August 2011 (CEST)
Sure, why not. Let's give it another go. -- DeepSpaceHomer 01:51, 9 August 2011 (CEST)
Done. - akitalk 17:00, 9 August 2011 (CEST)
Neat. I'd also like to nominate Metropolitan House of Opera. I don't know how much work needs to actually be done on it, but it could stand to have some. -- DeepSpaceHomer 17:09, 9 August 2011 (CEST)
Neat. It's been added. - akitalk 17:21, 9 August 2011 (CEST)
Dr. John A. Zoidberg article could really be improved, and after The Tip of the Zoidberg, I guess we'll have to do even more. --Superbender 18:30, 9 August 2011 (CEST)
Done. - akitalk 18:32, 9 August 2011 (CEST)

How about the Planet Express ship article? A lot to be discussed there, but the article seems both confusing and lacking in content. --Sviptalk 20:28, 24 August 2011 (CEST)

October[edit]

I suggest The Lesser of Two Evils. It's a bit too brief and not very much detail. -UnrealLegend 06:24, 3 October 2011 (CEST)

Since there were no objections, I added Planet Express ship and The Lesser of Two Evils. Also, I nominate List of physics references for a second turn. Sanfazer 19:48, 10 October 2011 (CEST)
No objections. Added List of physics references. Nominate Tube Transport System. Sanfazer (talk) 19:38, 17 October 2011 (CEST)
No objections. Added Tube Transport System. Nominate Buggalo. Sanfazer (talk) 19:15, 24 October 2011 (CEST)
I object! Because you shouldn't just be talking to yourself here. But I second Buggalo. Mixed signals. --Buddy (talk) 19:57, 24 October 2011 (CEST)
You're right. I shouldn't. (And I wasn't. I was talking to UnrealLegend. [Sanfazer coughs.] [coughing] Indention!) I should be getting some feedback. That's right, Infosphere. I'm looking at you. Sanfazer (talk) 23:22, 24 October 2011 (CEST)
Added Buggalo. Nominate Hattie McDoogal. Sanfazer (talk) 22:45, 31 October 2011 (CET)

You guys are awesome keeping this alive when I'm being all antisocial. I'll buy sodas all around! - akitalk 00:29, 3 November 2011 (CET)

Make mine a triple soda. 'Cause I happen to love my soda. (Welcome back!) Sanfazer (talk) 20:30, 3 November 2011 (CET)

No objections. Added Farnsworth's grandmother. Nominate Francis X. Clampazzo. Sanfazer (talk) 22:08, 30 April 2012 (CEST)

May[edit]

No objections. Added Francis X. Clampazzo. Nominate Greeting card. Sanfazer (talk) 20:42, 7 May 2012 (CEST)

No objections. Nominate Jesse Ventura's head. Battlestar (talk) 10:10, 8 May 2012

Since this is your first nomination, it doesn't really make sense for you to say "no objections".
I think Jesse Ventura's head is a bad choice - because, even though the article has the expansion template in it, the character's only appeared in one episode and for a brief period of time and there isn't much to be done other than some cleanup.
No objections. Added Greeting card. Nominate Popplers. Sanfazer (talk) 21:06, 14 May 2012 (CEST)
No objections. Added Popplers. Nominate Fing-Longer. Sanfazer (talk) 19:24, 21 May 2012 (CEST)
No objections. Added Fing-Longer. Nominate 7¹¹ clerk. Sanfazer (talk) 19:52, 28 May 2012 (CEST)

Nominate Old Filthful. 66.32.185.154 (talk) 12:22, 29 May 2012 (CEST)

I think Old Filthful is a bad choice as well - for the same reason I thought Jesse Ventura's head was a bad choice. If you exclude the cleanup part, that is. Sanfazer (talk) 20:57, 4 June 2012 (CEST)

June[edit]

No objections. Added 7¹¹ clerk. Nominate Thermostadt. Sanfazer (talk) 20:57, 4 June 2012 (CEST)

Nominate MomCorp (66.32.185.154) 21:57, 4 June 2012 (CEST)
No objections. Added MomCorp. Nominate Diamondium (66.32.185.154) 21:57, 11 June 2012 (CEST)
No objections. Added Thermostadt. Nominate Pauly Shore (character).
Removed MomCorp. It should only be added next week. Decline Diamondium - because I don't see how it can be improved.
You can sign your comments by clicking the penultimate icon on your edit toolbar or typing "--~~~~". Sanfazer (talk) 21:09, 11 June 2012 (CEST)
Declined "Pauly Shore" for the exact same reason Diamondium was declined; I don't really see a way to make it better. -- the preceding unsigned comment was written by 66.32.188.127 before 01:41, 13 June 2012 (CEST).
Well, the Pauly Shore character has had four appearances - but his article only contains information from one of them. It can certainly be improved.
Do you have another reason why Pauly Shore (character) should not be a spotlight article? Sanfazer (talk) 01:41, 13 June 2012 (CEST)
Not really, but I don't think I really need one. One of his appearances was cameo, and the other one was at the Proposition Infinity rally, so I don't think it's fair to use his four appearances as a reason. There simply isn't much to do; all that would have to happen would be to add a sentence or two. (66.32.185.154) (66.32.188.127) 21:57, 4 June 2012 (CEST)
In my opinion, adding information from his last three appearances - which were all cameos - would be a great deal of improvement. Sanfazer (talk) 21:10, 13 June 2012 (CEST)
