2022-01[edit]

Another year almost in the bag? Time flies... For next month, possible anniversaries to feature could be Amulets & Armor (25th) and Eternity Engine (21st). The latter would be timely, in view of Heartland and Testing Pool featuring at the Cacowards. Or from an entirely different wiki corner, one of the new movie-related articles on monsters or weapons? --Xymph (talk) 13:20, 26 December 2021 (CST)

I'm going to second Eternity for the reasons Xymph has given, and because it's more Doom-related than Amulets & Armor. Gauss (talk) 13:41, 26 December 2021 (CST)
I cannot vote for EE because I'm biased but I definitely do not see A&A as a valid featured article; it was nearly deleted for its marginal topicality once it was discovered it's not a Doom engine game; it was retained due to the historical interest this mixup caused alone, and because it is an example of what was a greater phenomenon of devs using Doom file formats and tools to make their own lives easier. --Quasar (talk) 14:54, 26 December 2021 (CST)

2022-02[edit]

Next month, it's 25 years since the release of Mordeth's first episode, and so far the only one hence it got an award named after it. A suitable feature, then? --Xymph (talk) 06:44, 24 January 2022 (CST)

I'd say so for those reasons. Gauss (talk) 10:06, 24 January 2022 (CST)
Sounds good to me. --Dynamo128 (talk) 10:09, 24 January 2022 (CST)

2022-03[edit]

Since nobody else remembered (cared?) to post a nomination, I guess I'll hunt anniversaries again. It's the 28th for Origwad and E2M1ED, the 27th for SQUARES, and the 26th for Kick Attack! -- but we just featured a mod this month. Also, the 27th for Heretic: The Official Strategy Guide and the 25th for Doom for Sega Saturn. Any preferences? Alternatively, earlier suggestions were Approximate distance or Korax. --Xymph (talk) 03:34, 28 February 2022 (CST)

I vote for the Doom for Sega Saturn article. Not only is 25 a nice number, but it's also a very notorious port that got quite the infamous reputation. - Endless01 (talk) 06:04, 28 February 2022 (CST)
I also vote for Sega Saturn due to the reasons Endless01 has given. Gauss (talk) 06:47, 28 February 2022 (CST)

2022-04[edit]

In a rerun from a year ago, anniversaries next month include 3DO's 26th and Hexen (Sega Saturn)'s 25th -- but we just did a port anniversary. There is 2015 Doom source data release's 7th and the 26th for 99 Ways to Die, but neither look that appealing to me at this time. Which brings me back to earlier "general" suggestions like Approximate distance and D'Sparil/Korax. Any other/better nominations? --Xymph (talk) 05:33, 18 March 2022 (CDT)

The 2015 Doom source data release sounds like a good candidate, considering that last year Romero was told to not release any more unseen/alpha/beta resources of Doom, the 2015 source is probably the last one will ever get, so I guess that makes it a bit special. - Endless01 (talk) 06:10, 18 March 2022 (CDT)

2022-05[edit]

Next month are the 25th anniversaries of the releases of Hexen (Sony PlayStation) and Doom Music (album), but those are five-upped by Wolfenstein 3D's anniversary. So we'll go with that unless there is real opposition? --Xymph (talk) 15:41, 27 April 2022 (CDT)
