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 2020 nominations

For January, I think it should just be comics-related. Specifically, I'm suggesting that the last two miniseries Feats of Friendship and Nightmare Knights along with the last two story arcs from the main series Cosmos and Tempest's Tale should be featured next month. What do y'all think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 05:38, December 29, 2019 (UTC)

February 2020 nominations

I think February 2020 should be love-themed given Valentine's Day is next month, and to go with that theme, I think we should nominate two couples: Cranky Doodle Donkey and Matilda alongside Lyra Heartstrings and Sweetie Drops. What do y'all think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 20:59, January 25, 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Those seem like good choices to me. The oldest couple (in terms of the chronology of the show) to have yet to be featured, as well as one of the final couples to be confirmed in-show.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 22:18, January 25, 2020 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
Symbol support vote Support That seems like a good idea. But i do okay with Cranky Doodle and Matilda, but i love the Lyra ans Bon Bon ship thingy. So, this has to be featured. --Ivan the Brony Kaiju (t - b - c) 00:39, January 26, 2020 (UTC)

March 2020 nominations

For March, I suggest that we make it a music-themed month by featuring the My Little Pony theme song in addition to the musical episodes that haven't been featured yet which are Magical Mystery Cure, Pinkie Pride, and Crusaders of the Lost Mark. What do y'all think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 18:27, February 22, 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support. I would nominate A Hearth's Warming Tail instead of My Little Pony theme song, but that's already been featured apparently. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 22:52, February 28, 2020 (UTC)

April 2020 nominations

In anticipation of My Little Pony: The Manga Volume 2's currently scheduled release on April 7, I'd like to preemptively reserve two April slots for Volume 1 and Volume 2. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 17:20, February 1, 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support for those two articles (though it appears there's no article for Volume 2, so I hope there'll be one by April), and as for those two other slots, I nominate The Fast and the Furriest and My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Canterlot High: March Radness.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 23:15, March 26, 2020 (UTC)

So, can we move the Vol. 2 article from the workshop into the mainspace?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 14:51, April 1, 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, I suppose. It's going to remain pretty bare until Vol. 2 releases next week though. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 15:39, April 1, 2020 (UTC)

May 2020 nominations

As with My Little Pony: The Manga Volume 2 above, I'd like to reserve one May 2020 slot for the IDW crossover mini-series My Little Pony/Transformers. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 05:00, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

Tentatively withdrawing my nomination for this one, as IDW suspended their releases for the month of May, so MLP/Transformers is going to be delayed. Not yet sure if that affects digital releases. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 00:32, March 27, 2020 (UTC)

Friendship is Magic Issue 89 (the official start of "Season 10") is also scheduled for release on April 29, so that would make a good second slot filler for May. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 13:23, February 19, 2020 (UTC)

So, is "Season 10" not starting today? Haven't seen a wiki article of the first issue of it, so has it been delayed like My Little Pony/Transformers was?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 18:19, April 29, 2020 (UTC)
Yes, unfortunately, both Friendship is Magic #89 and MLP/Transformers have been delayed, with new release dates pretty much T.B.A. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 23:32, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

How about a school theme? Ponyville Schoolhouse, Cheerilee, Silver Spoon, and Pipsqueak! --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 22:38, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Yeah, that works for me. I would've suggested a different theme, but maybe I'll do that for some other month.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 22:45, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

June 2020

I was thinking we could do pets for June. Such as Angel, Tank, Owlowiscious and Gummy? Thought it'd make a nice change (smile)

Angel and Tank are already featured, so I'm suggesting some other pets should be featured. In place of Angel and Tank, I think Winona and Philomena should be featured instead.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 19:32, May 13, 2020 (UTC)

Update: It looks like the premiere of Pony Life has been delayed to another time, so two slots won't have to be swapped out after all. :P furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 15:12, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

July 2020 nominations

For July 2020, I'm nominating:

What do you think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 04:26, June 26, 2020 (UTC)

I like the summer-related ideas. For the first two, it seems counterproductive to feature articles whose subjects won't exist for the majority of the feature time. The shorts could work though. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 06:04, June 26, 2020 (UTC)
In that case, then I guess we could push the MLP/Transformers one for August. In its place, how about we go with Princess Celestia and the Summer of Royal Waves?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 20:06, June 26, 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Ditto. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 22:22, June 29, 2020 (UTC)

Okay so, I made a mistake that I should've noticed but didn't until just now as when I was adding the featured articles category to these articles. I forgot that Camp Everfree was already featured all the way back in January 2017, so we're just featuring this article again.

So I guess my question is should we stick with this as being one of the featured articles or should we feature something else?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 15:06, July 1, 2020 (UTC)

How about Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 1 as an alternative? It also takes place during the Summer Sun Celebration. Otherwise, I see no harm in Camp Everfree being featured a second time (since we're somewhat lacking in summer-themed articles :P). furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 15:22, July 1, 2020 (UTC)

August 2020 nominations

After much thinking, these would be my suggestions for next month's featured articles:

I was struggling to find summer-themed articles beyond the Season 4 two-part premiere (which, as Imperfect said, also took place during the Summer Sun Celebration like The Summer Sun Setback) that can be featured, so I ended up going with Principal Celestia for the last one.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 02:32, July 27, 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support Seems like a reasonable compromise to me.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 05:38, July 27, 2020 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
Symbol support vote Support What Jonny said. The first issue of MLP/Transformers should be out by next Wednesday. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 18:20, July 30, 2020 (UTC)
Also, Friendship is Magic Issue 89 is currently scheduled for August 12, so maybe we swap out one of the latter three slots for it halfway through the month? furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:11, July 31, 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I Symbol support vote Support that suggestion. Maybe swap it with the Principal Celestia article. I had thought about that comic, but there's no article for it, so I went with the four articles above.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 05:02, August 1, 2020 (UTC)

September 2020 nominations

Here's what I'm nominating for September:

Two autumn-themed articles alongside two Apple family-themed articles. What do y'all think?  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 03:41, August 27, 2020 (UTC)

I both Symbol support vote Support these and offer Friendship is Magic Issue 71 as a possible alternative for the fourth slot. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:10, September 26, 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, that's a good alternative. And it would fit with Luna Eclipsed more than Night of the Living Apples considering both are directly about Nightmare Night and not just simply horror-themed (this would also be a good argument for Scare Master but I still think we can save that episode for another Halloween). I think I may be leaning towards your suggestion here, but I'm okay with either of our comic suggestions being featured.  Sunset_Shimmer_happy.png Golden Bluebird Sunset_Shimmer_cutie_mark.png 20:52, September 26, 2020 (UTC)
