Talk:Article Of The Month

You never said anything about redirect pages in the rules. Since redirect pages link to another page, though, I'm not sure if it counts. But you might still want to update to disallow redirects. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png Wikiteam.png ♠-- 08:18, 25 August 2013 (MDT)

Fixed, thank you TntMatthew. Also, I think it would be nice to have a small box on the front page saying which article is the AOTM. It would be a good position to have it directly above the 'Latest News' box, and the same width as it too, and it being about half the height of the 'About Ace of Spades' box. This way nothing is pushed too far down the page and can still be easily accessed. If anyone is willing to do this, it would be greatly appreciated (because for some reason I can't get it right). --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 20:43, 25 August 2013 (MDT)
This is all looking great, thanks for setting it up. :) The box on the main page looks fine. ^^ -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 11:48, 1 September 2013 (MDT)
Not a problem, I thought it was a good idea. Would you mind if I just picked articles each month? It's easiest because I know exactly what to change etc. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 13:50, 1 September 2013 (MDT)

This is working really well. :) I've written an article on aceofspades.com to promote it a bit. I'm not sure about anyone else, but I think it'd be cool if users could vote on nominated articles either supporting or opposing nominations, perhaps similar to how the RuneScape Wiki does it. Seems like it'd make things a bit more democratic, which is how things are generally run around here. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 17:00, 8 September 2013 (MDT)

I didn't think all the ideas through fully, I kinda figured they can be modified over time to fit the community. I do agree it should be democratic, but I didn't know how to implement that. If anyone has an idea, I'd love to hear it! --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 21:38, 8 September 2013 (MDT)
Yeah definitely, the entire Wiki has been created by improving stuff over time. :) I believe on the RuneScape Wiki people can either 'support' or 'oppose' an article becoming AoTM. If a nomination gets a large number of 'support' posts it becomes featured. Would like to hear other people's thoughts on this. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 09:20, 16 September 2013 (MDT)
The only problem with that is, we don't get enough activity to really do something like that. Other than that, I'm all for the idea. And on a less serious note, do you play RuneScape? --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 15:47, 16 September 2013 (MDT)

Adding Nominations

If I add a nomination, am I supposed to edit the poll? Because it resets all the votes if I do. Gamerzap (talk) 13:28, 6 November 2013 (MST)

You don't do either right now. I believe the nominations are now closed, and the article needs to be voted. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 13:44, 6 November 2013 (MST)
The AoTM is running a bit behind schedule right now, but to answer your question, the poll will only be there when voting is active. When it's not, just add it to the list and when it's time to vote I will add the poll. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 13:49, 6 November 2013 (MST)
OK. It confused me because it said suggestions are open until the last two days of the month, instead of listing the date. Gamerzap (talk) 14:13, 6 November 2013 (MST)
Still working out the kinks in this whole system, just ask if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 15:43, 6 November 2013 (MST)

Reboot

You ok with me getting this going again Travas? -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 17:07, 8 February 2014 (MST)
Sure thing Count. I apologize for totally forgetting about this. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 07:55, 9 February 2014 (MST)
No prob, thanks for getting it all set up. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 08:20, 9 February 2014 (MST)

Retiring AOTM

Hey guys, I'm going to be retiring AOTM due to a lack of time and the fact that recent months have gotten virtually no votes. Most of our best articles have won it at some point now anyway. Unless anyone has any major objections or wants to take over running it? -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 04:17, 2 December 2014 (MST)

Agreed. We're running out of articles, we don't have enough active contributors to actually keep it running, and virtually no votes - there's just no point anymore. --♠ TntMatthew TntMatthew Swords.png (♣TC♣) ♠-- 06:01, 2 December 2014 (MST)
