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)

April 2015 nominations

With Season 5 around the corner, we'll go back to having the first two sliders featuring the latest aired episode and the next episode respectively. For the remaining ones, I nominate Friendship Rainbow Kingdom castle and Starlight Glimmer.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:01, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

I agree with Starlight Glimmer. But since April is when IDW is running their "FIENDship is Magic" comic mini-series, I nominate My Little Pony: Fiendship is Magic for the fourth slider. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:56, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
I'm okay with that choice.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:38, March 23, 2015 (UTC)

With the Season 5 premiere coming this Saturday, I think now is a good time to switch Rainbow Rocks with Cutie Markless to go along with the anticipation and excitement for this episode. What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:31, April 2, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, I forgot to address the nominated articles. I believe they should be featured after Cutie Markless has aired, since Starlight Glimmer is still in the workshop.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:35, April 2, 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good to me (on both points). furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 16:45, April 2, 2015 (UTC)

July 2015 nominations

I am nominating Background ponies and Friendship is Magic Remixed. Considering the former was the focus of the latest episode and the latter being released this month, I believe these are pretty fitting choices for July. What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:04, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

August 2015 nominations

Now that Season 5 is on a break, I think we can temporarily stop with having the first two sliders feature the latest and next episodes. With that, I suggest that the first slider feature My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games in anticipation of the film, though I'd wait until September and/or October for other Equestria Girls-related articles to be featured in the sliders.

In the meantime, I think we should let other articles have their chance in the front page. With that, I nominate Moon Dancer, Steven Magnet, and Alicorns for the remaining sliders.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 17:22, July 22, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree that Friendship Games should be the only EG slider on the front page for August.

Seems to be no disagreement here. Sliders have been updated.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 07:59, August 1, 2015 (UTC)

September 2015 nominations

For next month, I suggest that My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games should remain as the featured article and make the page for its animated shorts the second slider page. This will remain until the week in which Season 5 returns. That's when we should definitely return to having the first two slider articles be the latest episode and the next episode and pushing the Friendship Games-related slider articles to the third and fourth sliders.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:03, August 16, 2015 (UTC)

Sounds fine, but what happens for the week of FG? There doesn't seem to be an episode that week. Would the episode part just be removed for FG or what? TheGuineaPig45 (talk) 13:55, August 19, 2015 (UTC)
I would suggest having the second slider feature Friendship Games once Rarity Investigates! airs. When the film airs, we then feature it in the first slider until the first episode to come out after that airs.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:23, August 19, 2015 (UTC)
...though now that it's revealed that Made in Manehattan will be airing the same day as Friendship Games, then basically just stick with the two-episode format. However, once Friendship Games does air, I'd suggest that it'd be in the first slider, Made in Manehattan be in the second, and S5E17 in the third as "Next episode". Until S5E17 airs, then we'll go back to the two-episode format and have Friendship Games go back to the third slider.
I think I'm leaning towards an alternate suggestion would be to have the first slider feature the latest episode and the second one feature Friendship Games (or vice versa) for a month to save space for the last two sliders for other articles for October (potentially one for a show-related article and one for the movie-related one). Friendship Games being a movie and all that can be considered as a pretty big thing (as is the case with the other EqG movies), so I want its slider placement and its time in the front page to reflect that, and I don't think the third slider would be the right place for that. Plus, it helps to save some space for the last two sliders to feature other articles. The two-episode format should then return once November hits.
What do you guys think? Which suggestion do you support, or do you have other suggestions in mind?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 18:38, August 28, 2015 (UTC)
I'm with you on this one. First slider could be episode, Second could be film, and third and fourth could be Shorts, or soundtrack, or something. TheGuineaPig45 (talk) 18:44, August 28, 2015 (UTC)

I would be in favor of an idea to still have two featured articles - but rather than having Friendship Games being the third slider, it could be the first, with the second and third sliders then being the upcoming episode and most recently aired episode, respectively. I Symbol support vote Support the format Friendship Games, upcoming episode, most recently aired episode, and then have the Friendship Games animated shorts article be the fourth slider (which would be the only thing in need of discussion for October, as the other three would remain the same - at least, in the case of Friendship Games, while the episode sliders would not need to be discussed to be changed, obviously). At the start of the month, I suppose, since it'll be for less than two weeks, the second and third sliders could be Canterlot Boutique and Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 22:22, August 29, 2015 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

Good suggestion, and that kind of three-slider format was something I had in mind. However, the reason why I suggested that the first two sliders feature the latest and next episodes rather than in the second and third ones was that I favored the episodes from the show more than the film itself in terms of importance in this regard. Now that I think about it though, I think this three-slider format is a better idea than what I had in mind as I decided I don't think the episodes' importance are going to be tarnished by their slider placements. However, I don't think Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? should be in the sliders since that episode has aired quite a long while ago. I think we should just stick with having Canterlot Boutique be the only episode in the sliders until it airs.
With all that said, I'm still leaning towards my second suggestion. Again, I still feel like there should be some space for other articles to be featured.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 13:18, August 30, 2015 (UTC)
You know what? I think I'm leaning towards your suggestion, Jonny. I decided that, after giving it some more thought, the other sliders aren't really that important to me.
Also, we need to settle this fast (I want it to be settled at the latest in the weekend) because we're already in September and even despite having changed my opinion, not all of us agreed on the same suggestion. If GuineaPig decides to change his support to your suggestion, then no further discussion unless others who disagree decides to chime in (and I think more people should be involved in discussing the sliders; the three of us don't really represent what the wiki userbase wants the front page sliders to show). If not, then this discussion will continue.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 12:37, September 3, 2015 (UTC)
Jonny's proposal sounds good to me. :P furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:16, September 3, 2015 (UTC)
I have changed my support to Jonny's. Unless there's any opposition, it should get updated. TheGuineaPig45 (talk) 15:08, September 3, 2015 (UTC)

October 2015 nominations

Now that its release date has been announced, I can safely suggest My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for the fourth slider next month.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:55, September 16, 2015 (UTC)

So, anyone else wants to give their thoughts on this?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 03:56, September 27, 2015 (UTC)

If there's no opposition, then I'm going to change it later today (October 1 in my time zone, just to be clear). Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 16:15, September 30, 2015 (UTC)

And it is changed.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Rallinale Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 13:59, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

November 2015 nominations

Now, I know it says November, but I'd be all for changing these for the second half of October, and possibly keeping them through November (or going with something different). Anyway, I nominate that the most recent and next episode are moved back to the first and second slots (for obvious reasons), and then the two featured articles are Cutie Mark Crusaders and Cutie marks, or something related to that topic.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 04:13, October 11, 2015 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

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)
