About The Featured Wiki:


The Featured Wiki showcases wikis to share them with the rest of Elftown. If you find a particularly interesting wiki-page that you think should be a featured wiki, nominate it, and help spread the wiki love. There are so many wiki pages here in Elftown that are interesting, funny, serious, artistic, or otherwise awesome and they are not always well-known within the Elftown community. The Featured Wiki gives people a chance to let us (and the rest of Elftown) know about some of the nifty pages out there.

If your nomination follows all the rules, and we think it is pretty awesome as well, then you might see it featured on Main Street! One wiki page will be chosen bi-weekly and placed on Main Street. The page will also be rated, (See: About Wiki-Ratings). So other than two whole weeks of advertising on Main Street, you get some permanent benefit from having your wonderful page rated.

To see previous featured wiki-pages, go to Featured Wiki Archives 

How do I nominate a wiki?

Just go to Wiki nominations and add your nomination to the list, but make sure you've read the rules about nominations, first!

If you have any questions, comments, and concerns, you may ask [Stephen] or any member of the Council.

Or, if you wish, you may leave a comment on this page.

Current Feature:


Role Playing for Dummies


<img200*0:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v158/Lunnie/Roleplaying.jpg>


The first featured wikipage for August 2014 is Role Playing for Dummies, which was designed by the talented [Lunnie]. Written in such a way that anyone who is interested in roleplaying, from seasoned veteran to clueless newbie, can read and learn some new tips and tricks of the rather complicated art of making characters, playing in character and just generally roleplaying with others. Filled with fun humor and easy to understand writing, we suggest Role Playing for Dummies to anyone interested in bettering themselves in roleplaying.

2004-04-26 [True, plain and simple]: Hm I'll link it later as a calander note.

2004-04-26 [mywolfalways]: If people link to it from their houses or their wikis it'll get more attention.

2004-05-05 [Sheona]: I think this will grow more as time goes on. Things are bound to be a little slow when starting off.

2004-05-09 [Ayeaka]: I think that this is a wonderful idea! It might be a nice way for a less know wiki to get more members if it wins!

2004-05-20 [Sheona]: I was just curious, is there any link to this page from anywhere else in elftown? It strikes me that this page can be a little hard to find for people who don't know about it.

2004-05-20 [HiddenFire]: perhaps it is not made well known so as to keep the number of submissions down. eventually word will spread and as more and more wiki-pages get selected it will become more well known. the number of submissions as it is is quite large, i know i wouldnt want to be the one checking through them all. @;@

2004-05-20 [Sheona]: Lol. That's a very fair point! It just makes it a little harder for the wikis of this month to be seen.

2004-05-20 [HiddenFire]: It was shown on mainstreet but the Graphic competition message took its place.

2004-05-20 [True, plain and simple]: There is a link from the index. There is a link to the results on Fame, I think, as well. A fair portion of the wikis might get disquallified immediately; either the person didn't follow the rules in submitting, or the wiki itself just isn't something we'd like to show period. It was shown on Mainstreet, yes..But then we took it down. Maybe next month I'll leave it up for the entire month. :)

2004-05-20 [All_Most PUNK]: To Hiddenfire: You sure you don't want to check them? *says wrily, and cleans the dust of lots of wiki pages from his pullover* :P

2004-05-23 [Aradon Templar]: When a new one is selected every month, is it announced on mainstreet, or should I check this place regularly?

2004-05-23 [All_Most PUNK]: We'll announce it in the mainstreet. It will be chosen for the 1st, surely

2004-07-02 [-Ryouga-]: Sexy Sean

2004-07-06 [Amber.]: hello kids

2004-09-09 [Arany]: hey, can i make a suggestion? wouldn't it be helpfull, besides the nice words the featured wikis receive, to have some on how to improve the wikis as well? they may be featured, but they are not perfect and that could help raising the general wiki quality...

2004-09-09 [Ocean Dreaming]: No, it wouldn't. People don't want to hear an in-depth report on how to improve. They want the publicity and the knowledge that a place they made/love has won some form of award for the hard work already done. It beats the point of giving a reward if you knock them down with a sledge hammer the moment after.

2004-09-10 [HiddenFire]: Actually there is something to his suggestion. Though I agree with [Ocean Dreaming] on this one. Would there be a wiki devoted to suggesting the things that makea good wiki? Things people are looking for, Things to consider, suggestions, tips, etc... It would at least be helpfull to those who want to start up their own little sub-comunity. But not in the featured wiki awards. The last thing we need to hear is "you won! But we hated this or that and suggest fixing it." Ack! What a kick in the face that would be! @.@

2004-09-10 [Ocean Dreaming]: Exactly. The wiki awards are *awards*, you don't tell a person who won a drawing competition that they DO need to work on their hands, for example.

2004-09-10 [Arany]: you're probabaly right on this one. well i had one of my wikis featured although I thought it had some serious gaps... it would have been more like a chalendge than a hammer kick to receive some suggestions on how to improve it! but that's me, i go for "there's always room for improvement", other people may have different opinions

2004-11-30 [All_Most PUNK]: The wiki awards are back after a long time. There's been a problem with the old versions of the wikis, so I couldn't find every person that had nominated a wiki to give them the guestbook message. Sorry. Still, you know who you are.

2005-01-10 [swabloo]: what happens if your wiki gets featured for the top ten?
