Automated featured articles switch[edit]

moved from User talk:Chieftain Alex/sandbox 3

I suggest going ahead with the change. Having it automated would mean one less thing to have to manually edit every week. --Silver Edge 19:21, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

hmm good, I'm glad to have you onboard. I'm thinking of putting this at Main Page/featured article/automated, such that the featured article can still be edited at Main Page/featured article if users want to do so (its awkward to edit things that are hidden like in this sandbox) -Chieftain Alex 19:30, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
oh, and also, hopefully the automated switch will detect that the event is due by tomorrow + have changed! -Chieftain Alex 19:31, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
I guess I'll probably add something along the lines of {{notice|This page has been retained for ease of viewing previous articles. Featured articles are now featured via dpl [[/automated|here]].}} to the top of "Main Page/featured article" too - unless someone else improves the wording! -Chieftain Alex 19:37, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Tbh I never cared about the featured article and it could be done away with imo. But adding your proposed feature is nifty. Steve1 11:24, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
I don't care about the featured article either, but I know that without it there will be only lists of links on the mainpage, which isn't so nice to look at. (this way I can totally ignore it :P ) -Chieftain Alex 14:04, 3 February 2013 (UTC)


The text for the featured article of Survivor is out of date. A single death hasn't permanently halted the progress for a long time. How do you change the featured article to match how it is today? Blue Totoro 20:34, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

good spot, I've crudely rewritten it. Its just partially hidden on this page. -Chieftain Alex 21:02, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Looks good enough for now, thanks. What's the policy on past featured articles, though, such as this list? It doesn't seem to be pulled from this page, so does it need to be changed individually, or should there be an old version and a new version? Blue Totoro 21:26, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I've no idea about policy, but I do know that the front page is now pulled from here. Its not a great method since you can't view your edits as you go along, but its good enough. Just edit either and I'll copy them across. -Chieftain Alex 22:46, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
"without without dying", this mistype remains here since this revision. Someone of admins, can you fix it? -- 16:37, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Good eye, thanks! G R E E N E R 16:57, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Not working[edit]

This does not seem to be working I noticed this last friday I think but thought someone else would fix it I have no idea how to do so... --User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 09:48, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

The target article naming was incorrect, fixed. User Yoshida Keiji Signature.png¥oshida Keiji(talk) 04:19, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Not working 2: Electric Boogaloo[edit]

Hey this appears to be broken again. Doing a quick look I couldn't tell what's wrong. Thrain | contribs 17:37, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Smiley temporarily fixed this with a purge, but the Government page may still be broken again next time it comes up. Thrain | contribs 17:40, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
