Featured Content October Poll and the State of Such Things

Round 2 - Electric Boogaloo

Since the last poll met my expectations, we're doing this again!

Again, a quick recap for those who forgot and those who weren't there last month:

Each month, users can nominate the episodes they want to see featured (given that it hasn't been featured already). The nominations then get added to a poll where everyone can vote. The graphic/episode with the most votes gets featured on the main page the following month. The first two weeks of the month, everyone can nominate the episodes and graphics packs they'd like to see featured in this thread, where they will be added to a list. The third and fourth week of the month, all nominations are put on a poll.

This month, I want to try it a little differently though. Instead of one vote, everyone gets to vote for all nominations they think deserve to make the cut, so the most voted nomination will be the one that the most people agree on.



Nominated Episodes: Vote for the nominated Episodes here!

Nominated GFX Packs: Vote for the nominated Graphic Packs here!



And now for something completely different.

The State of Such Things

Someone recently said something to me that really dinked my dink.
For how long will we put up featured content every month?

The featured content pages are supposed to be there to display to visitors of our page what SMBX and its community are capable of. I think of it a little like a hall of fame for content, stuff that should be seen by everyone.
We've been able to feature an array of incredible content since the "Featured"'s revival, given that it's been a while since 2014 and a lot of great stuff came out during that time.
However, I feel the longer this goes on, the more the status of Featured will become trivial, and the feature pages will become just as cluttered as the episodes/graphics forum.

Therefore, I want to retire the concept of Monthly Features after this year.

Now, before people lose all hope in their content ever making it to the front page after 2018, let me clarify.
I would like to change up the system to be less of a timed thing and more of a general concept. Something like "graphic packs that reached so and so many downloads". Now, because that's hard for me to keep track off and easy to fake, I'd like to go with the middle ground, which is having episodes and graphic packs be featured in larger intervals, such as bi-annually or even annually. That way, there is time for great content to be released and for the cream to rise to the top. Then once or twice a year, or maybe every three months, we have polls to decide what really needs to be seen by the world.

Let me know what you think of the concept below, and don't forget to nominate your episodes and graphic packs!

The recent poll has shown that there's like at least 6 more outstanding episodes that have not been featured yet. Now there's only three more spaces left until 2019, and maybe even more than the ones recently nominated will come up. I'm also still testing Your Journey Awaits and Super Luigi 2D World, they will take some time until being finalized.

Maybe we should just slightly reduce it to every two months and see how things go

anyway, pls give love to Mario & The Mushroom Genie

That being said, that doesn't mean that there will only be one or two features every year. There are still many classics yet to be featured, and at some point all of them should be put up there. The votes are meant to be an addition to that, so users have input on more recent episodes.

Also Airship Attack had as many votes as all other episodes that aren't Restoration. But this is why I want to change up the vote system, so it becomes clearer what episodes are really favored by the community, instead of people having to settle on one.

Perhaps the best episode in showcasing the flaws of poorly thought out and overly lengthy episode layouts.

Why do people think that larger is better? So if I make an episode with 200+ garbage tier levels is it better than an episode that has, say, 20 good levels where thought was actually put into design?

Anyways, back on topic. I think the idea of stopping monthly features could prove to be beneficial, especially since the release of Beta 4 might significantly increase the amount of new content uploaded on the forums, so it's the right thing that the featured page stays organized in some way or another.

I remembered Mario Classic to be quite solid and satisfying, and it wasn't extraordinarily long either (about 80 levels?)

opinions differ, yeah

I wasn't referring to Mario Classic (I don't have the right to judge it since I haven't played it yet), I just wanted to point out that quality is more important than quantity. It's not the first time I see people emphasizing the size of an episode and presenting it as a decisive factor of whether that episode is good or not.
