2019-01[edit]

Next month, going back to an earlier suggestion, DMMPST could be featured. This already received a nod by Quasar, too. --Xymph (talk) 03:53, 22 December 2018 (CST)

+1 from me. It's a great tool and notable for the Doom Wiki. --Jartapran (talk) 12:21, 22 December 2018 (CST)
+1, though my bias should be acknowledged.  :>   Ryan W (living fossil) 14:05, 28 December 2018 (CST)
Uhm, bias towards DMMPST or DMPSMU? ;) --Xymph (talk) 16:37, 28 December 2018 (CST)

2019-02[edit]

Picking up the recent anniversary theme again, how about featuring ZDaemon next month, as it originated 18 years earlier. Also provides a spotlight on multiplayer-related content, and as source port articles go, it's fairly comprehensive. --Xymph (talk) 04:12, 23 January 2019 (CST)

+1.  The historical information is unusually complete, and per more recent news, the project isn't about to compromise its philosophy.  :>   Ryan W (living fossil) 12:50, 26 January 2019 (CST)
I'll second on the condition that we feature Odamex the month after. Fair is fair, and the port gets less attention than it deserves. --Quasar (talk) 15:00, 27 January 2019 (CST)

2019-03[edit]

I'm fine with covering Odamex, but do you really want to feature two ports back to back? Or for more variation, interlace them with an article on an entirely different topic, such as the recently updated Reaper Miniatures? And then cover Odamex in April. Variation is good. :) --Xymph (talk) 16:19, 13 February 2019 (CST)

Works for me ^_^ --Quasar (talk) 07:37, 17 February 2019 (CST)
Belatedly, +1/+1.  I sense the figurines are not a widely owned item, but those who do are always enthusiastic.  :>   The current article is a great example of coherently presenting a historical topic which would otherwise be nigh unavailable, and less likely to be created as the community's generations shift (also an example of using the gallery format correctly, with a unique subtopic per item rather than an ever-growing asset dump for somebody's 3D model project).  Odamex, intermediate in purism, may lack the easy catchphrases of some ports, but has received no less thought and effort in its development for that.  Last I looked, it remains a DM favorite.    Ryan W (living fossil) 14:58, 2 March 2019 (CST)

2019-05[edit]

In absence of other nominations, I guess I'll have another go: Doom references in other games is one of those typically-wiki articles that could be featured, although its intro is very brief. --Xymph (talk) 05:41, 29 April 2019 (CDT)

I made some enhancements. --Quasar (talk) 13:09, 1 May 2019 (CDT)
