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)

December 2015 nominations

For December, since I imagine the first two slots in the slider will still be occupied by the season 5 finale, I nominate It's a Pony Kind of Christmas for the third slot (seems like a no-brainer). For the fourth slot, however, I'm thinking something like what Jonny Manz suggested for October: the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Holiday Special comic for the first half of December, and the My Little Pony Holiday Special 2015 comic for the second half since it isn't expected for release until December 9th. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 02:21, November 13, 2015 (UTC)

All of those sound logical to me, so I Symbol support vote Support.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 03:11, November 13, 2015 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
These articles go with the whole Christmas vibe, so I Symbol support vote Support.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 05:19, November 13, 2015 (UTC)

The December change is done. Now to wait until mid-December to change the fourth slot.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 09:34, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

January 2016 nominations

With Season 5 now over, it's time to go back to the old slider format. As for my suggestions for what articles should be in the front page, I'd like them all to be articles for characters with some significant role in at least one episode from Season 5 that haven't been featured yet, which is why I suggest that Countess Coloratura, Diamond Tiara, the Pie family, and Sassy Saddles should occupy the first, second, third, and last slots respectively.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:38, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Symbol support vote Support. (Which reminds me -- I need to finish the Hooffields and McColts' character page. :P) furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 19:21, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

March 2016 nominations

Considering some Friendship Games-related articles haven't been featured yet, why don't we feature them next month and make it an EG3-themed month? I originally planned to make this suggestion somewhere in the months nearing the release of EG4, but since that may be released when Season 6 is airing meaning that those months may potentially be taken up by S6-related pages, I decided that I make this suggestion before Season 6 begins.

Anyway, I nominate Sci-Twi, Shadowbolts, Principal Cinch, and Friendship Games (the event) for the first, second, third, and last slots of the slider respectively.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:45, February 21, 2016 (UTC)

April 2016 nominations

With the start of Season 6, it's time that we bring back the aired episode-next episode slider format. Now, I suggest that this be brought back a week before the season premiere airs.

Now, as for the last two slider slots, I nominate Baby Flurry Heart for third slot. For the last slot, I would suggest Sunburst though that's going to depend on whether or not he will have his own page (which he very likely will considering it seems like he's going to have a big role in the premiere in some shape or form).  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:06, March 8, 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support bringing back the format, as well as the two ideas for the other sliders (of course dependent on Sunburst having a page). Otherwise, we'll have to think of something else, haha-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 23:24, March 8, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
Well, we do now have a workshop page for Sunburst, so it's certain that he's going to have his own page.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 12:00, March 9, 2016 (UTC)
Wellp, then the part about Sunburst in my comment can be safely ignored, haha-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 22:39, March 9, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

Now with Flurry Heart and Sunburst having their own pages and April coming in just a few days, what do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:12, March 27, 2016 (UTC)

And it's done.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 10:36, April 1, 2016 (UTC)

May 2016 nominations

For May 2016, I suggest that Tender Taps and Princess Ember be featured in the front page slider. However, if the formerly-bad pony mentioned in the No Second Prances summary turns out to be someone who hasn't been featured yet or possibly even a new character, I would suggest that his/her page should take place of one of those two suggested pages (I think it should be Tender Taps).

What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:22, April 21, 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Tender Taps and Princess Ember.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 01:54, April 22, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
...and it turns out to be Trixie who was already featured back in January 2013, so I'm sticking with Tender Taps and Princess Ember.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 17:42, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

...And done.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 08:53, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

June 2016 nominations

My suggestions for June 2016 is that The Wonderbolts and Manehattan should be featured.

I should also add that I had this thought that, in place of Manehattan, Hearth's Warming should be featured what with the fact that there's a big musical episode dedicated to it. However, I don't feel completely comfortable with that idea because I feel like that article should be featured in December for obvious reasons.

But what do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 17:49, May 23, 2016 (UTC)

Totally agree with Wonderbolts, and I agree that we could hold off on Heart's Warming until December. So Manehattan seems like a great choice for June.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  18:22, May 23, 2016 (UTC)

July 2016 nominations

Now that the season is in a hiatus, I think we can temporarily stop with having the first two slider slots be occupied by the latest and next episodes. Now, as for the featured articles of June 2016, I'm thinking that Zephyr Breeze, Mr. and Mrs. Shy, Coriander Cumin and Saffron Masala, and Zesty Gourmand should be featured. What do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 18:21, June 21, 2016 (UTC)

Greenlight it! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 18:50, June 21, 2016 (UTC)

It's going to be a few days until July hits. So, anyone want to chime in?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 21:02, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry! Hadn't noticed this was up. That selection sounds perfectly fine. TheGuineaPig45 (talk) 21:12, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

August 2016 nominations

With the show coming back late this month, I think we should bring back the aired episode-next episode format in at least a week before the episode's airdate.

As for the featured articles of August, my suggestions for what articles should be featured in the last two slider slots would be Quibble Pants and Pinkie Pie's Party Playlist. What do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:39, July 16, 2016 (UTC)

As long as Quibble has enough to put on a page (which is likely), sure. TheGuineaPig45 (talk) 14:52, July 16, 2016 (UTC)
Isn't it obvious what the next two sliders should be? Stranger Than Fan Fiction since it's already gonna be aired at the time, and then The Cart Before the Ponies because that's coming next! ;) --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 15:24, July 16, 2016 (UTC)
Um, no. The aired and next episodes would be placed in the first two sliders, just like it always have.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:00, July 16, 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote Support Quibble Pants and Pinkie Pie's Party Playlist being the two featured sliders. Also, I vote that the changeover be made after Stranger Than Fan Fiction airs (since that will be just two days before August begins anyway).-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 20:53, July 16, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

September 2016 nominations

Nominating My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree (considering it's more than a month away when the movie releases) and Thorax for the third and fourth sliders.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 13:12, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Those seem like fitting choices.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 20:06, August 25, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

Symbol support vote Support It's cute that we still do nominations! Just goes to show though, that Rallianle's ideas of freatured articles are always agreeable! Don't think I can ever find anything better! :3 --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 20:13, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

October 2016 nominations

Considering the movie is coming out next month, I think Legend of Everfree shall remain as the third slider. However, the fourth slider will be different, and the obvious choice for said slider would be the soundtrack for that film.

What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 18:37, September 18, 2016 (UTC)

Symbol neutral vote Neutral I was actually thinking Gladmane would be the fourth one! I mean unless we're gonna get a new character in the next episode, but until then, Gladmane! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 18:40, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
While this is a good suggestion, I feel that Gladmane (and for that matter, Gabby) should be featured in a later month. I think making the last two sliders related to the film takes priority considering, as I mentioned earlier, LoE is coming out next month.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 19:02, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
Alright, I guess we can nominate Gladmane and Gabby for December Nomination! December, cause, the finale might introduce some new faces. --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 19:21, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
Well, we'll see about that.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 19:30, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
Actually, come to think of it, considering the fact that the season will be ending in October (and so there will not be a need for the "aired" and "next" sliders), there will be room for 4 featured articles in November. I suppose that Gabby, Gladmane, and (potentially) two characters (or songs or whatever) from the finale could be featured - with that in mind, I Symbol support vote Support Rallinale's proposition for October.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 10:20, September 19, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

November 2016 nominations


With the airing of the season finale, I think we can go back to having four featured articles. With that said, my suggestions for next month's featured articles are that the first two sliders should definitely be relevant to the season finale, which is why I'm nominating Queen Chrysalis (which I'm surprised to learn hasn't been featured) and Changelings for those sliders. As for the final two, there are four articles that I think should be taken into consideration. Those articles are:

Now, I prefer that Vapor Trail and Sky Stinger should be the ones featured in the final two sliders given that Top Bolt was released this month and I want the featured articles of next month to best reflect what happened in the show the month before, but what do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 18:19, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Queen Chrysalis and Changelings, Symbol support vote Support Vapor Trail and Sky Stinger as well (but for the latter, only if the first two in that list will be nominated for December, otherwise it's Symbol oppose vote Oppose those two, and support Gabby and Gladmane for the last two spots - so both pairs would be as relatively recent when they get featured).-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 23:20, October 20, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
I think the December nominations are going to depend on how many newer Christmas-related media could potentially be released if at all, so it's best to keep that in mind.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 11:25, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
