Discuss nominations for the featured article and the front-page slider here. -Throwawaytv 08:59, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

While season three is airing, we are doing one slider for the latest aired episode, one for the upcoming episode, and two features. Usually they are changed on the first of every month but changes can be discussed at any time. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 09:06, January 1, 2013 (UTC)

January 2018 nominations

With the DVD of the movie coming out in January, I think it would be a good idea to have movie-related articles that haven't been featured yet be featured. My suggestions for what articles should be featured next month would be:

I mean, I could've suggested different characters like Capper, Captain Celaeno, and Grubber, but I feel we could feature those characters in another month like maybe February. Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:31, December 27, 2017 (UTC)

March 2018 nominations

With the show coming back next month, we can bring back the episode sliders again. That leaves us with two sliders where I'm going to nominate My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship and one of the Equestria Girls digital series where I'm going to pick My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Better Together (the other Digital Series, we could maybe feature in a later month).

What do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:34, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Makes good sense to me. I think we should have both School Daze parts as the first two until the season premieres later in the month - is that what you had in mind?-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 10:12, February 23, 2018 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

For the Part 2 slider, should we really be using a Part 1 image rather than (an updated version of) File:SLIDER My Little Pony G4 logo.png? (7)6(four) (talk) 04:04, March 1, 2018 (UTC)
I dunno, I prefer using an image to using the placeholder. I mean, with two-parters, I feel, especially before air, the image situation can be more fluid (like, for instance, images from part 1 appearing in the recap at the beginning of part 2). Speaking of which, thanks for reminding me about that forum.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 05:45, March 1, 2018 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

April 2018 Nominations

So along with the April episodes, when Maud's special somepony gets his own page, he can fill the third slot, and then the School of Friendship on the fourth slot! The pages should be done by then! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 22:33, March 20, 2018 (UTC)

I'm not really sure whether or not either pages are going to be complete by the time April rolls around. The School of Friendship article is still in the workshop and still lacking in information, and the article for Maud's boyfriend is gonna be hard to get done before April since the episode he's featured on airs on the very last day of March. So, in case either articles haven't been completed once we hit April, my alternate suggestions would be to feature seaponies and mermares and Cutie Map instead since they do have some importance to the Season 8 premiere. If at least one of the articles you suggested is complete, then we can feature that alongside seaponies and mermares. What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:04, March 28, 2018 (UTC)
K fine, but can we have these two in May then? Wait a second, the Cutie Map was never featured yet? That's odd. --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 14:18, March 28, 2018 (UTC)
Hopefully, we can get those two featured in future months if they can't get featured in April. And yes, Cutie Map hasn't been featured yet.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:26, March 28, 2018 (UTC)
And a suggestion for the Student Six, I'd rather wait for the mid-season hiatus before we do them, cause then they'd have a half-season's worth of content! Oh and Sunset Shimmer has never been featured yet! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 14:34, March 28, 2018 (UTC)
Sunset Shimmer has already been featured all the way back in September 2013.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:40, March 28, 2018 (UTC)

May 2018 Nominations

So since we're gonna have a Hearts and Hooves episode coming up, the two nominees I have in mind is Cheerilee and Mudbriar! Quite surprising that Cheerilee hasn't had a featured article yet, unless she did and someone forgot to put it in the article! :P --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 03:54, April 14, 2018 (UTC)

Cheerilee would be a better choice if she had a starring role in the upcoming episode. Alternatively, I nominate two of the following: Mudbriar, Terramar, and Chancellor Neighsay. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 23:01, April 21, 2018 (UTC)

June 2018 Nom-nom-nominations

Another month is coming! So for this month, I would like to nominate Sunburst's family and Firelight for this one! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 20:34, May 18, 2018 (UTC)

Oh but then we need something for the third slot for the hiatus. The fourth is obviously gonna be the previous episode The Mean 6, but the third? How about Sky Beak and Ocean Flow, so we'll have a parent streak going on! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 20:39, May 18, 2018 (UTC)

July 2018 nominations

With the show currently in hiatus, I think we can put the aired/next episode slider format on a break for a while. That means we have four articles to feature.

For the month of July, I nominate School of Friendship, Cozy Glow, My Little Pony: Ponyville Mysteries, and, because it's going to be summer, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Summertime Shorts. What do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:37, June 16, 2018 (UTC)

Given Yakity-Sax (scheduled for July 20, 2018 on Discovery Family), A Matter of Principals (scheduled for July 29, 2018 on Boomerang), etc., what'll be replaced early when the aired/next episode slider format comes back from its break within this month? (7)6(four) (talk) 02:18, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

Ponyville Mysteries and the Summertime Shorts. The School and Cozy are still part of the season and can represent it! The other two, they're just comics that aren't connected to the season's theme. --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 02:21, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

August 2018 Nom-nom-nominations

So along side the previous and next episodes for the month, perhaps August would be a good time to start doing some of the Student Six as featured articles! We don't have to do this 3 months in a row though, nor do we have to have two Student Sixes per month! We could also do one Student Six and a new character! So let's just start off with one pair of Student Six and we'll see how it goes from there!

So for this month, how about we start off with Sandbar and Silverstream? All of Silverstream's family already has featured articles, so might as well, and Sandbar because he seems to be like the "Twilight" or "Apple Bloom" of the group, so he could be first! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 17:50, July 12, 2018 (UTC)

Symbol neutral vote Neutral Hm, this is a personal preference, but I'd rather do the students in various themes - I think Silverstream is a good choice for one of the sliders, but instead of Sandbar, why not Gallus? That way, it's both students that are part eagle. And then in a month after, it could be Sandbar and Yona (as the two of the Young Six who can't fly without outside assistance), and in another month, it could be Smolder and Ocellus, as the two with unique properties (Ocellus in that she can change her form beyond more than just the transformation to seapony, and Smolder in that she's the only bipedal student). Just a thought.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 06:57, July 18, 2018 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
Symbol partial support vote Weak support Alright sure we'll do Gallus, but we'll cross that bridge for the other ones when we get to it! I wanna put off Smolder for as long as we can, just in case my theory is correct about her! So Silverstream and Gallus for this month! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 14:27, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
Oh yeah, no problem, I had meant in my proposal that they didn't have to be done in consecutive months - apologies if that wasn't clear.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 10:08, July 20, 2018 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

September 2018 Nom-nom-nominations

So how about we do the Pillars for this month because of A Rockhoof and a Hard Place? So we'll do Rockhoof for one, and you guys can pick the other Pillar of your choice! ;) None of the Pillars except for Star Swirl were featured yet, so you have a wide-spread of choices! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 17:11, August 10, 2018 (UTC)

In that case, how about Mage Meadowbrook (since she's like Rockhoof and Rockhoof likes her)? (7)6(four) (talk) 21:40, August 10, 2018 (UTC)

October 2018 nominations

For October, I'm nominating Chancellor Neighsay (because of the season finale) and Autumn Blaze (which is still in the workshop but will likely be in the mainspace by month's end considering Sounds of Silence airs on September 29 and the page already looks pretty complete).  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 17:59, September 20, 2018 (UTC)
