Forums: Index War Room New Featured Article insignia
Forum logo

I'm creating this topic because the current {{CurrentFA}} interferes with the Topright images on the top corner of articles.


I propose the implementation of a new, smaller, similarly-styled star image:


This could be placed in the top center of the page, the same height as the Toprights, but out of the way so that no interference could occur. It also gives it a more prominent show, helping the wiki look more professional.


I'd also like to raise the idea of a silver star, the same design as the gold one I've shown, which could be placed on previously featured articles. This would show that the article is somewhat prestigious.

This is what the SCAR-H article should look like if this should pass.

Remember, this is just an idea, and any feedback would be appreciated. I'd also be open to changing the star to a popular concensus if one does arise.

Thanks for reading. File:Stbaksig.png StB Flag 22:45, October 2, 2010 (UTC)


I support this idea - if we can get it to not interfere with other toprights, it will look nice and will work well. --Callofduty4 22:46, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

Great idea Scotland! I also support. LITE992 23:57, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

Good idea, and as CGN said: if we can't get it to interfere with the other toprights, then it'll look great. --azuris_ 00:00, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I disagree with the second part. Articles can slowly degrade in quality over time, so eventually you could end up with a Silver-Starred article that is very poorly written. File:Shotrocket6sig.png 00:50, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I definetely like this idea. The silver/gold star idea is good also. Hk37 Need help? Contact me here! 00:53, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I support this idea whole. Gold emblem MW2DevilWarrior112Talk Edits12:00, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I like the idea, but although it might solve the problem for now, remember the new changed coming in November, we don't know how that'll effect the current issue. 25px The Smuff 14:54, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I like the idea, but I have a stupid question. Will a new user be able to tell by looking at the stars, what the stars signify? File:20PX SIG.gif Talk 20:24, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

They could have a caption stating what the star signifies. For example: Ideafornewfeaturedstar -File:Stbaksig.png StB Flag 20:29, October 4, 2010 (UTC)


Voting in support would be for the gold star and a silver star to designate current and previously featured articles respectively.

Pictogram voting support Support — I like this idea, and having the star in the middle of the page will not get in the way of the current Topright icons. File:20PX SIG.gif Talk 20:48, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
