List of featured articles

These articles have already been selected as featured articles. It is desirable that a new nominee is not one of these.


With the new Data section, the previously nominated Death wyvern page is as complete as I can make it, but perhaps a Hexen expert can contribute more. Either way, it seems ready to be featured next month. --Xymph (talk) 10:31, 24 December 2017 (CST)


Ferbuary being their anniversary month, I nominate id Software for next month. --Xymph (talk) 01:37, 24 January 2018 (CST)

Good idea; history topics are underrepresented in featured status IMO.  Two small questions, neither of which is an objection: (1) Do we need a list of links ("Original employees", which isn't completely accurate) which exactly duplicates the template beneath it?  (2) Should we have at least one paragraph about the deterioration of the relationship with the fan community?  (That might belong in the ZeniMax or Bethesda article.)    Ryan W (living fossil) 16:48, 24 January 2018 (CST)


I would like to suggest The Official Doom Survivor's Strategies & Secrets, which is a relatively new article that fraggle and I both put a lot of work into and is a very complete article as far as book articles go. Also an important core subject matter as it was the only official strategy guide for Doom itself and was hawked by id Software directly. --Quasar (talk) 09:02, 27 February 2018 (CST)

I know you prefer not to extend existing features, but... I propose to run id Software for another month. It went up an embarrassing four days late in an already short month, but if it weren't for id this site wouldn't exist, and as such the article deserves more than a paltry 23-24 days of exposure. For a little variety, it could be accompanied by a different logo.
For the following month, I'm fine with the book article. --Xymph (talk) 05:49, 28 February 2018 (CST)
Then I would suggest that we give back the four or five days and put this suggestion up as of March 5 rather than skipping an entire month. And then after that, we can get back on schedule hopefully. I do not want to skip a full month as I use these postings to drive social media traffic. --Quasar (talk) 07:07, 28 February 2018 (CST)
I know. Alright, but not a day sooner. :) Then I updated the logo now. --Xymph (talk) 08:26, 28 February 2018 (CST)


After squashing plenty of bugs during DMINFO v2.0 development ;-) I feel like nominating a bug article. Medusa effect has a decent description and, more importantly perhaps for the featured corner, a catchy name and a pretty picture. --Xymph (talk) 03:21, 8 March 2018 (CST)

I like this idea — I was just reading about Medusa here.  Agreement didn't form but it brought back the strangeness of glitch experiences in the 1990s.  There is also ongoing implementation research for Chocolate apparently.    Ryan W (living fossil) 20:53, 8 March 2018 (CST)
