WiKirby talk:Featured Article Nomination
Notice for Nominated Articles
The Super Mario Wiki has a notice template to place at the top of an article that's nominated for featuring, which includes a link that directly takes the reader to the voting page. Should something like this be done here as well? I find it quite practical, and it directs more attention towards nominations, so people are more likely to actually vote and/or comment on them.--Vellidragon 16:56, 3 October 2010 (CDT)
- Yeah, I thought Austin was working on something to add, but he's completely disappeared.Axiomist (talk) 14:15, 4 October 2010 (CDT)
Nominations Without Votes/With Equal Votes
I believe this has been brought up before, but we finally need some set rule for nominations that don't receive any votes, or have received as many supports as opposes by the time the deadline is reached. With the Kirby's Dream Land 2 nomination, which got no votes at all before reaching the deadline, we just left it on the nomination page until it received one. Should we follow this example for future cases, continuously extending the deadline until the tie is broken (or any vote at all is cast)? We could also extend the deadline by intervals like one week each time, but that may result in another tie being formed before the extended deadline is reached even after it has been broken.--Vellidragon 21:27, 16 July 2011 (CDT)
- I say end it if no one else votes before the deadline, extend it in the case of a tie.
- Also, should the person who nominated be required to vote in favor? It would prevent it from being a tie to start off with.

- Definitely extend, but I was asking in what manner to extend them. As for your suggestion, apart from the fact it wouldn't prevent it from being a tie at all if one person opposes afterwards, someone's voting for something they have nominated themselves breaks the rules that we do already have, and I think this can be solved without modifying existing rules.--Vellidragon 21:38, 16 July 2011 (CDT)
