Heey, nice idea.

The only other reference to all this info would be found in the monthly 'Shroom section, but hopefully this is something which can regularly be kept up to date.

I might not be here every day, so feel free to edit my opening post for any updates. If not, then just notify via posting.

Eh, actually, my sister was the first to propose this, but I decided to take the initiative and create a topic.

I opposed the Princess Peach nomination. Just a heads-up for those supported or seen the nomination.

Don't tell Peach I did that. Because I think I had a tumor in my brain at that time (curse you, hypochondriasis).

lol, we turned that ol' redirect page into a featurable article in about two days (originally, it was part of the Mario Party 5 article, but, y'know)

Are we a bit too dang devoted or what?

Yay, I'm glad the fruits of our labor is featured hooray for narcissism

But I'm happy Peach is featured too. The lowering of game appearance standards really helped.

I might devote some time and effort to the Mario article. If you see major changes or multiple edits to the Mario article, that's what I'm doing. Yes, I'm doing the unspeakable. Unfortunately, I have been recently enrolled in community college, so I can't be here as often as I like.

Macho Grubba has been nominated to be featured

I'm split on this. On one hand, it has good info for a character who has appeared in one game, so it shares parallels with other featured articles such a Culex or Kiddy Kong. On the other, it's shorter than Baby Donkey Kong's article and the reason that got unfeatured because it was too short.

I'm mixed on this as well. It's really short article. Deanna Mustard became unfeatured because it was too short. Macho Grubba and Deanna Mustard have comparable lengths.

Mario Party 9 has been nominated to be featured

I guess I'll support. I don't see anything wrong with the article.

Yeah, there's nothing offensive about that article. It looks very nice. The dice blocks may need some consistency (like the first one should be cropped from a screenshot), but that isn't enough to unfeature it.

Should nothing happen Macho Grubba is due to be featured

Ashley and Red has been nominated, personally I think it's too small, only 100 odd bytes bigger than Baby Donkey Kong.

Rawk Hawk is nominated to be unfeatured.

Rawk Hawk failed after Ashley removed her support. Pinkie said this means it automatically failed, nowhere does it say that is the case, so should the nomination be moved back?

Yes it should be moved back. WTF is he thinking.

Proposals don't fail when the original proposers remove their support, same should be said for Featured Articles.

Ashley and Red has been nominated, personally I think it's too small, only 100 odd bytes bigger than Baby Donkey Kong.

I think its length is fine. Do our viewers in this wiki honestly care how much bytes an article contains? It's just a general guideline, not some sort of strict rule. 100 bytes is like, NOTHING. Talk to me later when the article really lacks in sufficient length or content, not this one.

I've nominated Super Smash Bros. Brawl for unfeaturing (nomination is here).

I supported it because the writing is indeed atrocious.

Don't know why you think Ashley and Red is too small while Macho Grubba is okay size.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl deserves to be unfeatured. That Subspace Emissary section is atrocious.
