Featured articles and poll

October 2014

Let's use this page to nominate pages for the featured character/Teigu positions, as well as poll ideas. --kiadony --talk to me-- 07:21, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

We should nominate less-popular characters. otherwise, It's going to be either Esdeath or Tatsumi all year long.MAD SOULER (talk) 13:00, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
No need to worry about that. Whatever method we decide to use we'll run them in a rotation
where every character gets a turn. My vote for next features - Chelsea, Mastema, and as for the poll I really have no idea. I've run out of ideas, you can see the past polls here.

Well, I'm counting on that. For me, It would be Bulat and Rubicante.MAD SOULER (talk) 15:34, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

*Looks at the Jaegers poll* Wow. Esdeath's popularity is really overwhelming, isn't it? Ahem. Anyway, poll. Why not something simple, like "Your favorite faction" (between Night Raid, Jaegers and Wild Hunt and yes there are fans of Wild Hunt). --kiadony --talk to me-- 15:39, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

I wonder who are the pcychopaths who would choose Wild Hunt?MAD SOULER (talk) 15:44, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
I like that poll idea, Kia. Really the polls are the part of the front page that have given me the most grief, i'm awful at thinking up interesting ones on a normal basis. Great to have more people around to toss around ideas. I also find it interesting just how popular Esdeath is, she has without a doubt the largest fandom among the cast of the series, hard for me to wrap my head around because I don't really like sadists/torturers, but hey, to each their own. :) Dig87 (talk) 15:49, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
I thought I was the only one who doesn't like Esdeath! I think this has to do with me focusing on LNs and Novels more than manga, where you're the one that imagines the characters ( most of the time)MAD SOULER (talk) 16:04, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Well, there are darker corners of the Internet where Wild Hunt (and especially Syura) fans dwell. I know at least two of them on one forum. And I suppose many people like Esdeath due to pairing stuff and her appearance. But, who am I to judge. I mean, I love Run so much I have mental breakdowns.

Also, I believe that all simple ideas should be used first ("You favorite (insert a list that hasn't been used yet here)"). Then, hopefully something else will come to mind. --kiadony --talk to me-- 15:55, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Well, although I dislike Chelsea, she has quite an active role in AgK0 right now. I agree with Dig87, I think that might the right call. As for the teigu, using the same argument, Agk storyline, having Lubbock just killed (btw, why not him as featured?), his teigu could be good featured. Regardless, I don't want to add a third option, so between Mastema and Rubicante (I dislike both), I think I'll go with Mastema. No reason.
As for the poll, we shouldn't limit it to those three. I like the question. Make it all sub-factions (incl. Stylish, 3 beasts, Demons, Elite Seven). I don't think they'll win, but it'll be interesting be the results.--Coquidragon (talk) 15:58, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Of course, you can include as many factions as you can. I was just making an example. Featuring Cross Tail is a good idea, and it's one of my favorite Teigu, too (surprisingly I prefer it over Mastema). --kiadony --talk to me-- 16:01, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Although irrelevant, Am I the only one here surprised that we're all awake at the moment? I mean, according to my calculations : Kiadony's time zone is near Britain and Coquidragon's is near the Americas. It's weird that I can't stop thinking about it.MAD SOULER (talk) 16:14, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

I'm in Northwestern Russia (St. Petersburg), in case you're curious. So yeah, pretty close to European times. So I say we feature Cross Tail this month, what about you all? --kiadony --talk to me-- 16:20, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, although from Puerto Rico (America), I live in Taiwan (Asia). It's currently midnight here and I'm indeed going to be soon.
As I see it, we have already agreed the question for the poll. As for Character, 2 votes for Chelsea and 1 for Bulat. I don't recall Kiadony's vote. For Teigu, 2 for Cross Tail, 1 for Mastema, 1 for Rubicante. Let's give it how many days to let others also share their opinion?--Coquidragon (talk) 16:23, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
  • starts crying* lubbock!!! NOOOOOOOO!! *gets a grip of himself* I say we give two days.MAD SOULER (talk) 16:27, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
I'll just join you guys on Chelsea then. No need to wait or debate for too long, I think we can agree to feature Bulat and Mastema/Rubicante next. i mean, we don't have many active users here and it's no life or death decision. --kiadony --talk to me-- 16:29, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good to me.MAD SOULER (talk) 16:30, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Alright i'm going to roll with those features. Anyone who wants to add their votes for next features can do so here. Also i'm going to attempt to avoid spoilers in Chelseas description(haven't watched the last 2 or 3 new episodes, so i have no idea if we're "that" far yet). Dig87 (talk) 16:56, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

The anime isn't that far yet. The last ep dealt with Esdeath and Tats being stuck on the island. --kiadony --talk to me-- 16:59, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Okay, good. Definitely not looking forward to that episode, heh. Also on the MainPage template theres a randomizer for gifs but they need to be limited to 270px width or they break the formatting - so if you guys want to add more that can be done. Dig87 (talk) 17:29, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Poll done, too. --kiadony --talk to me-- 17:43, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

November 2014

Alright, soon, it will be time to decide upon the next featured character and poll. Since I will be away for several days I'll start the discussion a bit earlier this month. Last time, we got nominations for Bulat and Mastema or Rubicante. If everyone else agrees, let's use Bulat for featured character (by the way, he had a recent appearance in Chapter 53.5 aka Sheele comic) and as to Teigu, I'll let you guys vote between the two. I'll think of poll ideas a bit later. --kiadony --talk to me-- 16:44, November 3, 2014 (UTC)

Made a new poll. --kiadony --talk to me-- 14:58, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

January 2015

Well, I went ahead and changed it... Man, coming up with poll ideas is hard. --kiadony --talk to me-- 11:22, January 16, 2015 (UTC)

Not sure if this was mentioned before but maybe we can do a poll on favourite Wild Hunt member, or Empire side characters like Budo, The Emperor or Honest. Well i'll just leave it to others. B214    Talk01:04,1/17/2015

I'm afraid most people hate WH and don't care about side characters ._. --kiadony --talk to me-- 07:35, January 17, 2015 (UTC)

February - April 2015

I'll put up a list here so that I don't forget:

Characters that have been already featured: Esdeath, Chelsea, Bulat, Kurome, Izou, Lubbock.

Teigu: Incursio? I can't remember. Cross Tail, Rubicante, Adramelech, Lionelle, Shikoutazer.

I don't know which ones were featured before that, if any. I came here late. --kiadony --If you're lonely you can talk to me-- 10:14, February 18, 2015 (UTC)

Dorethea could do good for feature character. Teigu, hmm how about Shikoutazer. B214Talk11:11,3/19/2015

I'm trying to not use characters from the same faction in a row though, so next month I'll probably use a Night Raider. For Teigu yeah, why not? --kiadony --If you're lonely you can talk to me-- 12:09, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Hmm how about Lubbock then. I think he'd do good as feature character. B214Talk21:28,3/19/2015

Sure, I'll use him next month. --kiadony --If you're lonely you can talk to me-- 07:06, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

Okay, so, I remember thinking about featuring my baby next month, but I don't think we decided upon the Teigu. If no one objects, I think I'll use Pumpkin (and yes, putting it here so I don't forget). --kiadony --If you're lonely you can talk to me-- 08:56, April 19, 2015 (UTC)
