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 2017 nominations

For January 2017, I think it would be a good idea to make it a Legend of Everfree-themed month. With that in mind, I think , Gloriosa Daisy, Timber Spruce, and Camp Everfree should absolutely be featured. Now, that leaves us with one slider left. Since articles like the movie itself and its soundtrack have already been featured, I'm thinking that one of the movie's musical numbers could take the fourth slot, and I think We Will Stand For Everfree would be a good candidate for that slot.

What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:26, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

We Will Stand For Everfree is a good choice (in addition to the others nominated). If not that, though, I propose Katrina Hadley as a possible alternative. She was the Legend of Everfree assistant director, and January is her birth month. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 19:36, December 29, 2016 (UTC)
Good suggestion. Not yet certain whether or not I support that being the last slider over We Will Stand For Everfree, but it's a good suggestion nevertheless.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 21:12, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

After thinking about it a bit, I guess Katrina Hadley would be a good fit for the last slider, so I Symbol support vote Support.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 10:58, December 30, 2016 (UTC)

February 2017 nominations

Considering Valentine's Day is next month, my suggestions for what articles should be featured for February would be to feature the episode Hearts and Hooves Day and three articles for the married couples on the show. As for which three couples should be featured, I suggest Mr. and Mrs. Cake, Twilight Velvet and Night Light, and Igneous Rock Pie and Cloudy Quartz.

What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:57, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

Since Mr. and Mrs. Shy have already been featured once and other couples like Hondo Flanks and Cookie Crumbles and Jet Set and Upper Crust haven't been featured in the series that prominently lately, these sound like solid suggestions to me. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 00:51, January 24, 2017 (UTC)

March 2017 nominations

Since the Friends Forever comic series is coming to an end, perhaps the Friends Forever page could be a nominee for March! It could be a comic booky Month! Maybe all four columns can be each of the four comic series we have so far! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 23:41, February 23, 2017 (UTC)

Friends Forever and FIENDship is Magic have already been featured before, and the Micro-Series hasn't been relevant since it ended. How about My Little Pony Annual 2017 instead? It comes out on March 1. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 00:00, February 24, 2017 (UTC)
Alright! Now that just leaves the final one. If Friends Forever 38 becomes page before it even comes out, I guess that could be a featured article. Otherwise, I dunno what we should do for the final one. Maybe From the Shadows, perhaps? But then why do we have the main comic page on here? Let's what Rallinale thinks! He's usually good at these! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 00:06, February 24, 2017 (UTC)
My Little Pony: Deviations comes before Friends Forever Issue 38 (but still not until March 8..). (7)6(four) (talk) 17:51, February 25, 2017 (UTC)

C'mon, we got My Little Pony Annual 2017 and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (comics) as two of the four columns filled! What are the other two going to be? We got 4 days to decide before March comes! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 16:04, February 25, 2017 (UTC)

Alright since it's a comic booky month for March, perhaps the episode Power Ponies can be the third column! Alright one more! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 16:12, February 25, 2017 (UTC)
List of periodicals? (7)6(four) (talk) 17:51, February 25, 2017 (UTC)
Symbol support vote Support My Little Pony Annual 2017, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (comics), Power Ponies, and List of periodicals as the four sliders, unless a more compelling set is come up with before March.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 10:55, February 26, 2017 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

April 2017 nominations

With the show coming back next month, we'll do what we always do when a new season starts: bring back the aired episode-next episode sliders.

That's easy enough. What I struggled a bit is what articles should we feature in the last two sliders. I want them to be at least somewhat related to at least one or two of the four episodes coming out next month. The problem is that a lot of articles related to these four episodes have already been featured. Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Princess Celestia, Starlight Glimmer, Maud Pie, Flurry Heart, and Ponyville have all been featured.

I'm thinking of featuring episodes with some relation to the episodes coming out next month. We could feature an episode related to Starlight's character arc (maybe feature The Cutie Map as a reminder of Starlight's beginning) and Baby Cakes (due to A Flurry of Emotions which is also a babysitting episode). An alternate option would be to feature non-episode articles that are related to those two episodes like Our Town and Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake.

I prefer the latter option, but what do you guys think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 13:55, March 26, 2017 (UTC)

I'll say the latter one as well! The month we get the first Cutie Map episode, we'll add the Cutie Map page there! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 01:22, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, the latter option sounds like the better option at this time.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 02:14, March 29, 2017 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

May 2017 nominations

For May 2017, how about My Little Pony: Legends of Magic (because the first issue was released last month) and Sugar Belle (because she will be featured in an upcoming episode) for the last two sliders?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:54, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
