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)

Symbol support vote Support For sure. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:35, 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)
