Featured Articles

If you have ideas or suggestions for Featured Articles, feel free to make them here.

Currently, we add a new Featured Article every 2 weeks or so, and have a rotation of two character articles followed by a non-character article. Characters are the most numerous article type and are popular, hence the schedule.

Also being considering upping the Featured Article rate from fortnightly to weekly. Let me know what you think about that. --Admin (talk) 11:57, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

Weekly sounds very good to me, given that there are already tons of articles here that don't need to be written from scratch and "only" need to be reworked. It also keeps the update frequency on the facebook site high, thus raising awareness of the Gensopedia itself. I would propose 3 character weeks, then a non-character, given that we have so many characters and way less non-characters. Then again, you cannot really feature a character like Chapman who has less personality than a tree. One could still change the schedule when we see it's not working.

The Pokewiki, the German equivalent of the Bulbapedia, had a "Pokemon of the Week" and "Article of the Week" going, the second one featuring non-Pokemons. But having two featured articles a week might be too much. --Antimatzist (talk) 12:48, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

Two might be a bit much at this point in time, but I think we'll speed it up to once a week. As you say, there's enough articles here to support it. --Admin (talk) 21:07, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

Future Featured Articles

If no-one objects, the Featured Article for 20 March - 3 April will be an expanded and updated version of the Alchemy article. After that, I'm thinking of making Nash Latkje the featured article for 3 April - 17 April, thanks to Antimtzist's efforts in adding Suikogaiden information to articles.

After that, likely a Suikoden IV character. Flare has been adding Keen's confessions to the pages and we haven't featured any Suikoden IV articles yet. Any suggestions for who? --Admin (talk) 11:57, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

I'll try and work on the Nash article a bit then, given that I just recently played the first Gaiden and will most likely play the second one soon. Lino En Kuldes might be a good choice for a Featured Article, or Keneth who I think is the Knight of Razril with the most distinct personality (and he at least does something after the war).--Antimatzist (talk) 12:53, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

Lino is probably the best choice in terms of popularity, importance and amount of information. I'll get cracking on that once the Alchemy article goes featured on Friday. Alchemy, Nash, Lino for the next three weeks. Probably Keneth somewhere on the backburner. Or maybe one of the Tactics exclusives. I want to have a balance. --Admin (talk) 21:05, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

Unfortunately, the new Tactics cast cannot be fleshed out that much, with maybe the exception of Iscas. Maybe this could also be a good start to write more Tierkreis articles? --Antimatzist (talk) 03:31, 17 March 2015 (EDT)

Yeah, Kyril, Walter and Iskas would be the best choices there. I'd like to do a bit more Tierkreis stuff but I feel I'd need to replay the game to be able to do anything but the bare essentials. It's been a few years. --Admin (talk) 11:01, 17 March 2015 (EDT)

Featured Article schedule I'll likely do for the next three weeks: Seneca, Marscal Godwin, Premium Pack. I'm also going to shift out the poll, replace it with a Featured Image. If/when the SRM posts about Gensopedia on Facebook, I'll get around to adding a banner with logos/links to the SRM, Suikopedia and so on. --Admin (talk) 14:19, 26 April 2015 (EDT)

I lost tarck a bit - did we share the Gensopedia witht he SRM already? We should do it more freuqently, anyway. The schedule looks good! --Antimatzist (talk) 16:53, 26 April 2015 (EDT)
