On January 1, 2011 this article should be moved to Infosphere:Featured articles (that currently redirects to Infosphere:Featured articles/2010). Aki 15:54, 20 December 2010 (CET)

The target page is protected, so I can't do it. But this should've already been moved by now. Sanfazer 00:44, 27 January 2011 (CET)


When an article has been choosen to be featured (it seems like I'm constantly the one making the decisions, albeit considering the casted votes and accepting eventual critisism), there should be a possibility for anyone to disagree and argue with the decision. As such, this topic in the talk page is to argue with a decision. At any time when a new featured article has been choosen, it should be added as a seperate topic and one can comment.

Fortnight 1: Tinny Tim

Tinny Tim has been chosen for fortnight 1, 2011. Aki 16:22, 20 December 2010 (CET)

Fortnight 2: The Late Philip J. Fry

The Late Philip J. Fry has been chosen for fortnight 2, 2011. The votes cast were two to zero. Aki 16:22, 20 December 2010 (CET)

Fortnight 3: Proposition Infinity

Proposition Infinity has been chosen for fortnight 3, 2011. The votes cast were one to zero. The main argument for choosing it was that the time it is a featured article will collide with it possibly winning the 2010 Annie Award (February 4, 2011). Aki 19:09, 25 December 2010 (CET)

Fortnight 4: Sweden

Sweden has been chosen for fortnight 4, 2011. Aki 14:14, 26 January 2011 (CET)

Excellent happenings, people! I'm really happy to hear that. Sanfazer 00:44, 27 January 2011 (CET)

I think the Futurama theorem is a good subject, but, if it is featured, then the 6ACV10 article would have to wait. That much is obvious, right? Sanfazer 00:06, 22 February 2011 (CET)

In my opinion, yes. Too similar to be back to back. Teyrn of Highever 00:17, 22 February 2011 (CET)
Yes. My thought originally was to decide to get 6ACV10, but then I thought "hey, the subject is big enough to have an entire article about the theorem". If we include the theorem now (after Earth) we could have 6ACV10 in a few months. Aki 19:26, 23 February 2011 (CET)
Seems like a good way of solving it. A way that's strangely similar to something I should've read before starting the discussion. (If anyone clicks the link, don't forget to scroll down.) Sanfazer 00:05, 24 February 2011 (CET)

I find this article to be very decent and highly en par with a good Wikipedia article. Unfortunately, it has some bad areas here and there, with sentences and information cluttered together over time, so the sentence structure becomes odd or off when read from a fresh start. I assume that through some tweaking, the article will become even better than good. --Sviptalk 17:57, 28 February 2010 (CET)

Since our current policies only allow for an article to be featured once, I think we would do this article more favours by waiting till the season have actually hit the airwaves. We will have more content by then and we will be able to reflect more accurately on the content. It will no doubt be a much better article when featured if we wait. --Sviptalk 11:14, 14 March 2010 (CET)

I'm voting for this, though it should be featured when it has premiered --I'm Scruffy... the Janitor. 00:14, 24 May 2010 (CEST)

So, how much of the season do we want to have aired? We'll all have 3-4 episodes memorised by fortnight 14. - Quolnok 15:53, 13 June 2010 (CEST)
Seriously, how far will we have to go? I'm really starting to lose interest in the Featured system. Aki 10:08, 16 August 2010 (CEST)
Broadcast season 7 is over. Come on! San Saber 14:12, 20 December 2010 (CET)
The article could certainly be featured considering how it's halfway through, and it's quite perfect to have it between this hiatus. An idea would be to have the entire article now (January or February) and then have some part of it (production?) expanded and used the fortnight before "The Silence of the Clamps" airs. However, the article is currently having all too many faults - a featured article should never have an update template. Fix that, and we're on. Aki 15:52, 20 December 2010 (CET)
Okay, I fixed it up and now it seems more than alright to be a FA. Opinions? Aki 13:47, 11 March 2011 (CET)
The references section could do with a look over. It has a few broken links, but that doesn't affect the quality of the writing, so, why not? Teyrn of Highever 14:42, 11 March 2011 (CET)
I totally missed that. Will fix it before FA'ing. Aki 21:21, 11 March 2011 (CET)
Which picture should be used for the feature? Sanfazer 01:35, 12 March 2011 (CET)
I'd say this or this one. What do you think? Aki 14:45, 12 March 2011 (CET)
I like the table read, myself. Teyrn of Highever 15:16, 12 March 2011 (CET)
So do I. It reminds me of File:Easter egg 22.jpg, used in 2010. Also, we need you here. Sanfazer 23:24, 12 March 2011 (CET)

A big article about an episode that has frequently been called the best one by both staff and fans. Aki 17:05, 20 December 2010 (CET)

I agree it's a great choice, but don't you think we'll grow tired of episode articles on the Main Page? San Saber 16:43, 27 December 2010 (CET)
The article can be featured later in the year, when we haven't had an episode for quite some time. Aki 16:54, 27 December 2010 (CET)
Good idea. That way I won't start hating it. San Saber 17:39, 27 December 2010 (CET)

Fortnight 11: Bending Units

Bending Units has been chosen for fortnight 11, 2011. Aki 14:32, 11 May 2011 (CEST)

Fortnight 13: Planet Express

Planet Express has been chosen for fortnight 13, 2011. - akitalk 14:43, 7 June 2011 (CEST)

My abuse of power

I have basically taken the role of choosing featured article myself for the past weeks, ignoring the nominations page as it is basically not used. I don't think anyone has a problem with this, but obviously, if you do, tell me. Help is always welcome. And ofcourse, if the nominations page starts being used again, I will return to using it. - akitalk 14:26, 18 July 2011 (CEST)
