How do I re-nominate a failed article after it has been revised?Edit

Question is self-explanatory. This comment as well as the comment explaining it are completely irrelevant. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Projectjulio (talk • contribs)

Just nominate it as "Article name (2nd nom)" or a something similar. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 18:54, Mar 12

How exactly does a nominated article fail/feature?Edit

Is there like a time limit, and if it has positive votes at the end of that period, it's featured? How does it work?-- 21:13, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Every once in a while, an admin will take a look at VFH. If we're in need of articles to fill the queue, we'll feature the one or two with the highest votes, and at equally random intervals we'll take the one or two articles with the lowest health off VFH. Pages with a score of -3 or less usually get taken off right after they bottom out. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 23:07, Feb 26

IP Edit

It's still half a vote for IP addresses, isn't it? There's no instruction to that effect anywhere on the page. Sir Roger 06:02, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Ooops. That's true....good catch. Unfortunately, you're going to have to yell at an admin to get it done.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 19:27, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
Those rules are shown when you first nominate an article. I suppose that doesn't do much good for that rule. I'll add a link to the rules somewhere. Spang talk 05:26, 06 Aug 2007

I know I've had to re-count the votes when IPs vote, and update the vote-count accordingly. They keep giving themselves full votes. Dumb buggers.     EugeneKay wuz here (whine thank)   04:37, 5 September 2007 (UTC)  

PLS Edit

Are PLS winners eligible for a VFH nomination? P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 02:02, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes. And they're encouraged.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 02:16, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Top 3 - July Edit

I'm unclear as to why the top 5 are listed for July when there was no tie for third - there was a tie for second, but that still gives you three articles without having to add more. Sir Roger 02:01, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Because Mhaille told me to. Eh?-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 02:36, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
Fix'd. Spang talk 07:44, 20 Aug 2007
Actually, how about we do it this way? I go into the history and do the Top 3 from when the vote was supposed to close? Then there's no tie.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 14:35, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
How about you go back to an alternate history where the dinosaurs don't go extinct? That'd be cool. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:34, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
No way, we'd all squished or eaten! Haven't you seen Jurassic Park? P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 16:37, Aug 20, 2007
You're no fun. They'd get all the fat people first. Then they'd get all tired and have to take a nap. Then we put saddles on 'em. Dino-cowboy, wooo! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:41, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
I can see it now: riding off into the sunset on my dinosaur, eating the fat people as I go....Ah, the simple life....P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 17:05, Aug 20, 2007

Suggestion to Replace the Darwin RuleEdit

There is currently a discussion in place on whether or not to keep the Darwin Rule or replace it with one of three challengers here. Please read the discussion before voting. -Tritefantastic 16:35, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Low votes....again Edit

I noticed that VFH votes seem to be rather low lately. FA-quality pages aren't getting featured, or are doing so really really slowly. After conservation week, can we put up a template that tells people to vote for VFH, like we had a while back? P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 05:46, Sep 3, 2007

Perhaps if we can get that marginally less annoying sitenotice-above-the-tabs they have at wikipedia now, we could put a message in there about VFH voting. Spang talk 06:26, 03 Sep 2007
It'd be nice. My HP is low. --THINKER 06:28, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Try a hyper potion, they restore 200 points of HP. Oh, and a sitenotice would be great, Spang. Anything that gets people to get over to VFH and read pages and vote for stuff. P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 07:19, Sep 4, 2007

Giga BowserEdit

Lulz. Apparently I closed this VFH failure. I'm going to guess that the script looks at the last editor of a page, and that I edited it after Ljlego failed it, but before he locked it? Just looks odd as funk. I likey.     EugeneKay wuz here (whine thank)   04:37, 5 September 2007 (UTC)  

Yeah, I was confused about that, then remember it does just show the last editor, and assumes nobody edited it after it closed. Too much trouble to fix it though! Spang talk 10:07, 05 Sep 2007
I like it though. I have the POWAR!!!!     EugeneKay wuz here (whine thank)   00:48, 6 September 2007 (UTC)  

Can I re-nom Macau? Edit

Can I re-nom Macau? I have done alot of work on it since it was rejected so is it possible to re-nom? --Moneke 12:58, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes, just as long as it got pee'd. Remember when you're typing in the nom, to type in Macua (2nd nomination)--Sir Manforman CUN 13:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Whole VoteringEdit

Score: 1.25

Can an admin please add a blurb in the instruction box about registered users only being allowed to vote in whole numbers (ie. no .5 votes)? Only IPs are .5s, unless policy has changed without my knowledge. --THINKER 18:17, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Christmas featureEdit

I assumed Donner was going to be our Christmas feature this year, but it's on the main page today. Can we re-feature it on the 25th, or is there something special planned that I don't know about? -- 15Mickey20 (talk to Mickey)  17:36, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, we have a holiday related article that's going to featured on the 25th--Æ 15:06, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Where's it gone, then? Edit

I say...I nominated my anti-intellectualism article earlier today, but now it's dissapeared, and it's not on recently failed or feature queue. It's not even in the edit history. What gives? BlueYonder 17:05, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

There were some problems with lag on the server causing problems on VFH, VFP and lagging on recent changes. sannse got our friends at Wika to give the server a kick in the balls and it should be working again now... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 18:45, Jul 17

Wrong category (help please?) Edit

Wanted Kenny Rogers in votes for deletion, not nominate for featured article (article sucks). Can some mod reverse this, please? --Just!n 00:21, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

bad English grammar = humour? Edit

I didn't understand the "1nd Al Gore, 2rd..." . Actually for correct grammar it would be "1st Al Gore, 2nd...". Gnetter 08:44, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Are you saying that Al Gore should be 2rd? Spang talk 00:05, 08 May 2009

Sorry, but I started this thread. Also, I maintain my position on moving this to Uncyclopedia:Featured article candidates. Now, I'm a Wikipedian, plus I don't want anything other than the main namespace nominated, no aux namespaces like Unbooks: or UnTunes: 02:47, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Have you considered pulling the stick out of your ass? This is not Wikipedia. Wikipedia sucks. It's not funny at all. At. all. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:00, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. We HATE wikipedia. Read this for Christ's sake. We all know Wikipedia is stupid and that Uncyc is better. Staircase CUNt 04:02, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Calm down. Spang talk 04:34, 15 Jun 2009
I maintain my position on that being a kinda gay name. And this might be your thread, but if we're going to be like that, then in the same way VFH is kinda my page. And I quite like it as it is. Spang talk 04:34, 15 Jun 2009
Agreed. Even though I don't really know who you are Spang, I just know you're an admin and I shouldn't offend you. Staircase CUNt 04:38, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Whadaya mean you don't know who he is? HE IS SPANG! SPANG SUPPORT! ~Jewriken.GIF 07:53, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
He is like our version of Batman? Yeah. Just don't throw up the RAHB signal and expect a response. IronLung 08:25, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
You'll get a response all right. Quick and hard. ~Jewriken.GIF 12:17, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, we could do that. But we could also change our name to Wikipedia and start accepting factual content. Modus got it in one, so this comment is largely redundant. -- Hindleyite Converse 12:29, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Not Appearing?Edit

Fruitopia's page is appearing in the overview, but not anything else. Wh-what's happening?--You know what the music means... Our time is up. 21:15, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Narrow voting boxes Edit

Why are the voting boxes so narrow? They're hard to read. —Tonillero (hecklestalk) 21:09, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

No idea. Even on lower resolutions it seems fine. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 18:59 Sep 21 2010

What part of "feature every other day" Edit

Do you guys not understand? --Scofield & Dudes 16:26, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

What are you talking about? And who are you even talking to? O_o 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:34, 17 October 2011
Probably some thing that was mentioned on a template a while ago. The one TKF made about nomming/voting like hell. Anyway, it was removed a couple weeks ago so it's pretty irrelevant now. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 17:04, 17 October 2011
But was there for a reason! --Scofield & Dudes 12:11, October 19, 2011 (UTC)
I must have missed that. Was it bad? Have we fallen to insufficient levels? I thought someone said Uncyclopedia was almost full. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 13:34, 19 October 2011

Goal 20 votes? Sounds like too much Edit

Hey, I'm skeptical we'll ever get to average 20 votes per article. I guess it depends on how willing people are to vote. Maybe we should create ads on Google. --Qzekrom sig trans This has been an automated message by Cute Zekrom (talk) 00:17, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

I suggest we reduce the goal to ten votes, since that's basically what an article needs to pass VFH, anyway. ~jcm 00:44, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Great idea! --Qzekrom sig trans This has been an automated message by Cute Zekrom (talk) 22:54, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Randomly change the featured article on the home page Edit

I suggest that we will use the old featured articles, mixing with the newly voted articles on the main page. Megalo Kirito (talk) 09:44, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
