Nominations for articles to be featured on the front page.
Nominations must be at the very least 350 words long.
An article is featured every month, or at the admins' discretion.
Whichever article has the most votes at the end of the month is featured for a month.
Admin votes carry the same weight as regular users' votes.
All nominations and votes must be signed with four tildes (~~~~). Unsigned nominations and votes will be nullified.
Nominations and votes CANNOT BE CHANGED. Each user can only vote ONCE, for and against.
An article cannot be nominated twice in a row (if an article was nominated in the previous voting, it cannot be nominated again in the current one).
Only five nominations max for every voting are allowed. Any nomination surpassing this limit will be automatically disqualified.
ADDENDUM: CHEATING WILL NEVER BE TOLERATED. Any user who starts downvoting candidates just to rig the results or go asking other users to vote on his candidate will receive a one month ban, period. No exceptions.
Be original and creative with the nominations.
Don't vote against a villain if you haven't read the article about it yet.
Don't vote against a villain just because you know nothing about him/her/it.
Don't say anything that may be offensive to another.
If you're going to vote against, present an actual argument for your reasoning. "He's boring" or "I don't like him" aren't arguments.
The correct nomination format is as follows:
VILLAIN NAME HERE
(if anyone votes against:) against reasons for against
Two classic incompetent and comedic goons, perfect for April Fools!
I second this.
The page will need some work, but I see nothing wrong with this. Bebop and Rocksteady are the primary examples of brain-dead comic relief, and therefore decent choice for April Fools. That, and we rarely ever headline henchmen around here.
I believe the other three was his is perfect for April Fools.
Now that the page has been fixed, cleaned up, and all the incorrect information removed, it is now suitable for headline. And besides, what better for April Fool's than a clown?
Well-put-together page, popular character, and a trending icon for the face of villains. After all, she is a clown, and this would be for April Fool's Day, so why not?
Yeah yeah, clown. Sure. But I do think that the VFH candidates have lately been very unoriginal. The "popular page" thing is a rather bad thing in this case, since we're trying to bring up less known, more creative featured articles. These last months since Stripe has been already popular articles. How about adding some lesser known articles instead?
Besides, she was already voted on last month. I'd suggest waiting a couple of months.
Seriously? 1st This was nominated 2nd Nerd you we're against this article, out of no where you want it featured?
The point was the page needed cleanup, but I suggested it be nominated in two months for April after all of the cleanup was done. Now that it is done, I kept that promise. Sorry I offended everyone.
You haven't 'offended' anyone. We just disagree from letting the same article that got nominated, have a second round.
Given the widespread notoriety of the franchise, this feels a little uncreative.
If Harley Quinn wasn't nominated like a month or so. I would of voted for it. Now this is the best choice personally all others are quite anonymous flat villains. This one has some kind of history.
I fail to see how Freddy has any more history than any of the other choices, or how said choices are "flat" comparatively. All I see is a kid possessing a bear animatronic who tries to get revenge on their killer. That's standard horror and a standard character to me. Hell, Freddy barely has a personality from what I've seen.
Fits very well with the upcoming month actually. Not only is he Contradictory, fitting with the whole April Fools Theme, but The Game's developer also made Christian games prior to the development of fnaf, slightly fitting with Easter. The appeal for his as a character primarily relies on the vague nature of him. His open ended story allows for player interpretation as to how he is before his murder and after. It's also appealing to see the tragic nature of his character due to how he is still a kid, and thus attacks the night guard as his ignorant and scarred mind has associated his killer with all guards, and even after his death, he is still taken advantage of by the true villain.
I really feel like we need to start having less popular villains to get headlined. And the "vague nature doesn't really appeal to me (I prefer my villains with at least some knowledge of who they are) and as DarkClaw3 said, he's actually a pretty standard horror villain.
Honestly, I never found Freddy or any of the other animatronics to be interesting. Yeah, he has quite the interesting lore behind hin with lots of fan theories going around, but when it comes to the actual character himself, he just seems to be nothing more but a jumpscare monster in the game.
Freddie really is not headline material in any way he's not remotely interesting, unique or even scary instead he's incredibly boring and clichéd. I really do not want to see this character headlined especially since there are so many other great and unique candidates especially this month.
