Discussions Surrounding Past Nominations

Matt and I have been charged with rotating the featured Model Review and Model Article, respectively, on a weekly basis, so if there are any suggestions as to which vehicles we might put up each week, we'd love to hear them. We do prefer that the specified vehicle's Article and Review pages be relatively fleshed out, though, so if the suggestions aren't put into effect right away, it's probably because we're working on the page before featuring it. - Pastrami on Ry 20:52, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

We need more variation of the vehicles featured here. How about featuring a couple exotic vehicles? -Nidhi 19:09, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I would nominate the Ford GT as the Featured article and perhaps the Ford Mustang for the Featured review! It would be nice to see a few more exotic cars added to the featured articles mix. It would be interesting to also start developing some exotic reviews too! Exotics do interest and attract more car enthusiasts after all. --MQuan 19:53, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I choose to nominate the S2000 for featured review. Enzo Worshipper (Talk) 4:51, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

I'll put my vote in for the Ford GT as FA and the S2000 as FR. - Pastrami on Ry 22:42, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

My votes on the Ford GT. Enzo Worshipper (Talk) , 27 January 2007 (UTC)

I'll nominate Porsche Boxster for sometime. LuvWikis 00:57, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Isn't it about time to change the featured article and featured reviews on the main page? Red_marquis 12:19, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, we usually try to change them out on Fridays sometime. - Pastrami on Ry 18:00, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

How do you all feel about featuring an upcoming vehicle like the Scion xD on the homepage? Though there may not be a lot of content on this page (yet), I think it might attract more people if it's a vehicle they're not familiar with (yet). Other nominations? I think we've got a ton of awesome exotic car pages built out so I'm happy with doing a Maserati or a Lambo. We've got great content on our "more mainstream models," so I'm happy with running something as simple as a Honda Civic as well. -Nidhi 21:51, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm up for the xD. Enzo WorshipperTalk to me 4:57, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

The Pontiac G8 would be good for the upcoming vehicles as well. The Scion xD looks like we're making fun of Scion in emoticons. =P Argen 21:24, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I vote to nominate the Toyota RAV4 article. That page is just extremely well put together. Red_marquis 10:46, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

I'd also vote for the Mitsubishi_Eclipse. LuvWikis 17:53, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Sorry guys. The dates for the Civic were all wrong, and we were missing a week. So I added a couple extra days to the log. I hope no one minds. -Nidhi 22:07, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

I am going to nominate the BMW Z1. Enzo Worshipper (Talk to me + Contribs) 21:43, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

I'll second that. -Nidhi 15:59, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Thank you Enzo, for changing the featured article. -Nidhi 16:14, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

==Discussions Surrounding Current Nomination==Can you make Ford F-Series Pickup a featured article? Invader Car (Talk to me please! + Go to the Edit Cafe! + Sign here in this page!) 00:29, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Yepp. It's time for a change. Thanks! =) -Nidhi 03:11, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Anyone up for the Ferrari Enzo? Enzo Worshipper (Talk to me + Contribs) 21:10, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I second the Enzo nomination. Red marquis 00:30, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Discussions Surrounding Future Nominations

Yes, I'd like to see the Enzo on the homepage - could this kick off a hypercar themed featured article month, with the Enzo followed by the Porsche Carrera GT, Bugatti Veyron, Koenigsegg CCX etc etc? delays 06:11, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
Did anyone notice we've missed the Veyron and the CCX's timeslot on the Main Page? I'll go ahead and place the Veyron even though it's the Crossfire's turn. Red marquis 00:14, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
How about we put the Honda Element as the next featured article?

Pepperpop11 12:09, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Let's put it to a vote. But right now, I'm following through with what the schedule is supposed to be. Red marquis 12:11, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
But aren't we already way behind schedule? The Bugatti was supposed to be finished last month! Also, the cars supposed to follow the Veyron barely have anything in their articles, as opposed to Honda Element. I think we should take those other ones of the schedule until their articles have more information. Plus, the Bugatti should be down now with the Element up, seeing as it's the only car following the Bugatti with plenty of info in its article.

Pepperpop11 12:33, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

I know. But I think they still deserve their recognition and time in the sunshine. The past few months have been really slow and this section had been all but neglected. It hadn't been updated as you pointed out. But like I said, lets put it to a vote. Let's be democratic about this.

- Red marquis 12:35, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

But what can we say about them?

Pepperpop11 12:36, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Say about what? Red marquis 12:37, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
The cars with little info in their article. Pepperpop11 12:39, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
You're right about that. I definitely agree. But I still think the rest of our community should have a say as to what happens. btw, i really admire your enthusiasm. =)

Red marquis 12:43, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I admire yours too. How do we get people to start voting? There's enough info on most of the pages, that it's possible to put together a collage of information enough that it becomes a paragraph. I'll try and find more info on those cars. The CCX has enough info. Should I change the featured?

Pepperpop11 12:49, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

I also added some info to the Chrysler Crossfire.

I hope no one's mad that I changed the featured article. If so, I'll gladly change it back.

Pepperpop11 13:53, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Simply start a topic of conversation in Garage Talk. Right now we are holding elections for the Spyker Template Image. Check it out and use it as a basis. Red marquis 02:13, 30 July 2007 (UTC)


It looks like tomorrow (according to the schedule), the Element will be featured no longer. What do you guys want to be put up next? I'll gladly change it. I was thinking the Mercury Mountaineer or maybe Toyota Yaris. Or perhaps Dodge Magnum?

Go Ahead. I'm all for it. Red marquis 23:18, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

It's time for a change. It's been nearly a month, and I have a couple suggestions. The Jeep Liberty or Ford Edge. Just wanted to get the go-ahead from all you guys before I change it.
