We need a new featured article

21
Summary by Robkelk

The tropers have been reminded of the process to nominate a new featured article, and the admins have been reminded of the notice about the technical issues.

A new featured article may be Nickelodeon or something like that. Also, there are some errors on the main page, can you please fix those for me? Thank you!

There's a pair of links at the bottom of the Featured Article box on the main page. Nobody's added a nomination in over two years.

And I don't see any errors on the Main Page.

Yeah you do.

I don’t care if you don’t.

MOD: That was an invitation to point out what you believe to be an error, not an invitation to be snarky. Please read All The Tropes:Terms of Service and reply stating whether you have understood this wiki's rules.

PERSONAL: And I still don't see any new nominations for Featured Articles.

Regarding the Featured Articles, I was going to suggest World War II, but what's up with the message saying that you guys aren't accepting anymore nominations?

We’ll suggest it for now, RabidTanker.

There was some technical trouble when that message was added. I'll have to check with the coding team whether this is still an issue. Thanks for reminding me of that message.

And, Mr. Kelk, I want you to explain why you wouldn’t do this for me.

RabidTanker asked. You demanded.

Blah-blah-That’s how Robkelks and RabidTankers talk.

That's how admins respond to polite requests.

And this is how admins respond to obnoxious, entitled annoyances. Enjoy your tempban.

He's still demanding -- issuing orders for you to explain. Mo, bubbeleh -- bit of advice for you: stop acting like you own the wiki and we're getting in your way. You are a user here, with no more special rights than any other user gets. Remember that getting into arguments with us admins is a fast track to getting a tempban or worse. You do not make demands of us, you do not order us around. Be marginally polite and you will be surprised how much you can get away with. Act like a spoiled brat, as you have been, and you will be given a timeout or even forced to play elsewhere.

Expanding on what my fellow admin has said: It's all right to complain when an admin does something wrong, or to have a civil debate with an admin. It is not all right to ignore the admins altogether, or to demean anyone who contributes to the wiki, or to make demands, or to behave in any other way that violates Rule 1 of the Terms of Service.

Just complain about me.

You’re a little snarky. You know that, right? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂! And yeah you do see a new nomination for a featured article.

Nickelodeon. I don’t care if you don’t see a nomination for a featured article.

This is the best comment chain ever! It’s even bigger than the others! Thank you, guys!

Regarding featured articles, they could add the rest of the major wars when a certain anniversary rolls around. But I feel that will get old after an while. There's other stuff out there, but the pages that I have in mind are: Outdated or haven't been created.

Certain anniversary? Really? I know that I can count on you now. I like you, and you’re amazing! Thanks!
