List of featured articles[edit]

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


For next month I nominate Blast damage. It's an important gameplay effect, and the article looks thorough (enough) plus, crucially for the Featured corner, it includes a very pretty illustration. :) --Xymph (talk) 03:43, 16 December 2016 (CST)

I'm all up for this, although it seems to be a bit late :( -Voros (talk) 20:05, 6 January 2017 (CST)
This article unfortunately has some issues that will have to be addressed first. I'm going to bump this up to be next month's suggestion with the goal of working on this article in the meantime to bring it up to full standards. We'll just skip January for now. --Quasar (talk) 11:43, 9 January 2017 (CST)


For no particular reason other than that it seems worthy of it, Doom RPG could be next month's featured article. --Xymph (talk) 03:03, 20 February 2017 (CST)

How about Memento Mori? It's an old classic that might need a little love in this modern era. --15FiftySeven (talk) 04:57, 20 February 2017 (CST)

Agreed, but one shouldn't have to rule out the other. Either one could go up in April, I don't mind in which order. --Xymph (talk) 08:53, 23 February 2017 (CST)
I am going to second Doom RPG as the series is something I've been focusing on improving our content for just recently and would appreciate the showcase. --Quasar (talk) 10:16, 23 February 2017 (CST)


Per above, 15FiftySeven's nomination of Memento Mori still stands, which I second. In preparation, I spruced up the page a bit – of the images in the WAD, the intermission screen seems the prettiest and most suitable one for the featured corner as well – and applied a few corrections. --Xymph (talk) 10:39, 26 March 2017 (CDT)


Doom 4 1.0 is a great new article about a piece of Doom history, and this May is the one-year anniversary of the product that eventually got released in its place, so I nominate it for next month's featured spot. --Xymph (talk) 04:14, 15 April 2017 (CDT)

I'd be biased so I'll refrain from "voting" this month but obviously I think it's a good idea ;) --Quasar (talk) 09:57, 15 April 2017 (CDT)


For next month I nominate DeHackEd, the tool that allowed modding vanilla Doom in ways no other utility could at the time. --Xymph (talk) 02:38, 18 May 2017 (CDT)

+1.  If anything the community impact is understated in the current article, including terminology that survives into the present era of scripting and DECORATE.    Ryan W (usually gone)


Several iconic Doom monsters have already been featured, so how about one from another game? The Maulotaur is an imposing boss monster in Heretic, and also can be summoned in Hexen. Two for the price of one. :) The excerpts on the frontpage would need to mention both aspects.
Of course, after making initial nominations for half a year in a row, it would be perfectly alright if someone else has a go at this too. ;) --Xymph (talk) 12:43, 16 June 2017 (CDT)


Following up some IRC banter, I nominate BFG9000 for the next feature.  I guess I'm doing this out of pragmatism, seeing as we're already a few days into August and the topic's importance is unquestioned.  :>   It is however one of our most thorough articles (has been for a while actually), with gameplay info and data and real-world background combined in a readable way.    Ryan W (living fossil) 12:23, 4 August 2017 (CDT)

Soitenly. And given our lateness, I'd propose to leave it up until Sep 2 (or 3) so it still gets its normal near-30 days run. Provided we do timely find a new nominee for next month, of course. ;) --Xymph (talk) 12:48, 4 August 2017 (CDT)
