This is getting a little Chaotic, can someone please update the Featured Article? --Bullet Francisco (talk) Contributions Editcount

Gen, please read this.

Seriously! Shadow is the obvious victor so can we update it already? It is getting crowded. Maybe you could do it Gen? Jake the Hedgehog That's Just How I Roll! 02:55, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Ok seriously

I donno if it's just me, but hasn't Green Hill Zone been up there for quite a while now? I mean like at least 5 months. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. SportySmallRightAnimation2(Talk)(Recent finds and updates.) 01:36, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, Tails is the featured article now. And Green Hill was up for about 3 months. --Bullet Francisco (talk) Contributions Editcount

I personally think Shadow the Hedgehog has enough content for the nomination.

Do not think just content, think about the content itself, some of it could use some rewording there are way better articles out there. --Bullet Francisco (talk) Contributions Editcount

You have GOT to be kidding me!

How did Tails win?Shadow is the obvious victor!Oh yeah,forgot about the Tails fangirls who wine and cry if you insult Tails.I hate that B**** fox!Tabby the Hedgehog 15:09, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

PS:Tails was about the WORST idea they came up with!

Hahahahaha! I assume you're talking ironicly, no real Sonic fan would hate Tails. Myself 123 15:14, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Tails is probably one of the best character ideas SEGA came up with. He's been a classic Sonic character and is one of the cutest, greatest, and timeless characters. How could a Sonic fan hate Tails? Lightning the Hedgehog: The Electricity Master 15:17, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

As per mentioned above by MS and Myself, if you hate Tails, you ain't a Sonic fan. Plus, sidekicks win better than characters that aren't used as much. Pinkolol16, I love Sonic... I'm a Proud Sonic Fan -Who loves Sonic to bits 01:31, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Sonic The Hedgehog 2,I could read the article and know everything that happens in the game without playing it. Now that is something pretty awesome.BlazeMewkat1417506925616300 00:32, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

"How did Tails win? Shadow is the obvious victor." or "I hate that B**** fox" I think this is the most dumbest thing i've ever seen. Talk pages for a things like Featured article discussions should have neutral point of view. Wijata Mateusz (talk) 20:33, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. A perfect hero like Sonic can never save the world countless times without a perfect sidekick like Tails.OrbAdventures (talk) 08:46, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

FA Nominees

Okay.... how do we go about this? Normally I'd pick the article with the greatest and most unanimous support, but there's a little snag:


Absolutely none of the nominees have any positive, unbiased votes! So what, do I pick the one with the least amount of hate? Or perhaps this should be delayed until people can actually nominate one they like?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 02:16, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Nominations that have been up a while

Hey guys, don't you think someone should get the new article up already? We're quite behind on doing so. Perhaps we should find someone who'd be more willing to keep this thing updated, along with the rest of the front page in general, since no one really seems to care much about doing so. Just sayin'.


Because I feel like it, I'm going to archive these, too, if there are no objections. Of course, this will be done after I'm done archiving the successful user rights nominations. --Bullet Francisco (talk) Contributions Editcount 19:37, May 24, 2013 (UTC)

By all means. -- Supermorff (talk) 19:48, May 24, 2013 (UTC)


I am thinking about nominating an article but is there a specific format for this because I am unsure what to do (aside from marking the article with the template.). Mystic Orb: Who do you think I am? What do you want? What do I do? 04:58, August 21, 2013 (UTC)


Nominating Sonic Lost World.  A few reasons.  Sonic Lost World is the current major Sonic game.  There hasn't been a Sonic Game that  has been a featured article for a little while now.  And Sonic Lost World has a unique gameplay, different from all the Sonic games.  This should be sufficient reasons as to why Sonic Lost World should be a featured article. Sonicboom14 (talk) 16:16, July 8, 2014 (UTC)


It has been several months since this section was updated. If there is no one able to volunteer nominate articles regularly, then I see that we discard this section on the main page for a while, and replace it with anything else valuable.--Luma.dash (talk) 19:00, February 10, 2017 (UTC)

Why just discart it? I see no reason why it cannot remain just because things are quiet. It has been here for as long as SNN has been here. Just deleting it would be a shame.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 19:03, February 10, 2017 (UTC)
The problem is that it is not maintained well. Just because it has been here for years does not mean that it ought to remain. Besides, if it is just for filling the free space in the main page, then why don't we use features like the ones here?--Luma.dash (talk) 19:10, February 10, 2017 (UTC)
I guess you can just color me sentimental. If anything mayor should be done with it, people should at best be told about this before any action should be made.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 19:17, February 10, 2017 (UTC)
Well, nothing is wrong about being sentimental sometimes. Though, I see that if it is not going to be removed, we make it our job to place an article for the main page, and delete some unnecessary rules.--Luma.dash (talk) 19:24, February 10, 2017 (UTC)
I have to point out that there is a rule that says we don't have to seek approval for everything. I understand that you don't want arguments to arise, but we cannot just create forums for everything. We have to be bold sometimes, and if someone comes from the opposite direction, then we should just talk to him.
So, do you have an article in mind to replace the current one? I'm thinking of Sigma and the Time Eater, and you?.--Luma.dash (talk) 20:37, February 10, 2017 (UTC)
I am aware of that rule. However, I also remember that people tend to get ticked about actions that are carried out without them knowing, so I think that to avoid the fallouts we have had in the past, we should let people known. As for which articles we should nominate, I'll say either the Metropolis Zone (Sonic the Comic) or Space Colony ARK (Sonic X).Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 20:43, February 10, 2017 (UTC)

I haven't updated it lately because I've been really busy with my studies in university. Thus, I honestly say remove it. But if we are going to keep it, Time Eater is the best article to nominate. Metropolis Zone (Sonic the Comic) is extremely bland and way too long without any images to provide anything "colorful" for the audience, Space Colony Ark (Sonic X) needs rework in sentences, but Sigma is a good alternative choice. - BlueSpeeder (talk) 23:08, February 10, 2017 (UTC)

If this is the case, then I vote for the Time Eater article as well. It will replace the current selected article.--Luma.dash (talk) 08:51, February 11, 2017 (UTC)
